I've had Google Maps on my curve since the beginning of time. Who pays for navigator any more? :o

Interesting. I didn't think it was still required. Oh well, until the flip dies, it just sits in a drawer. Part of me knows they don't make phones to hold up like that LG but it has seen better days...

But unfortunately not on phones PURCHASED during the time period in which the data plans were required? Or has that changed? i.e. I have an Alias2, brand new, that I'd like to replace my husband's ailing LG flip with. However, whenever I try to activate it, I am "required" to add at least $10 data to it. My husband barely turns a phone on and says "hello" so I'd actually prefer just putting a data block on, but Verizon ...

in the Verizon Wireless forum

Epik has been telling people about the evils of the "contract system" since the beginning of time. We all know who's fault it is that customers have that sense of entitlement. I personally am just sick of the whole industry as well (so I'd hate to work in it). I used to come here and look at phone after phone to see what each one featured. I'd read countless reviews and post after post of people wanting to know ...

Hey epik, not to change the subject, but I'll change the subject...I haven't been on in awhile, how has the sale of iPhones been going for Verizon? Did anyone ever hear from Scott Herman again....? My daughter just got one (coming from the original Moto Droid) and she absolutely LOVES the battery life. She routinely gets 4 days on one charge (I couldn't go 5 hours with my droid). That and the camera seem to be the ultimate selling ...

I'm one of that steady stream...had an android phone and although I liked it, willingly went back to blackberry and a usable keyboard. If all phones go to touchscreen, I am going to be one unhappy customer.

in the Article: Verizon Wireless to Eliminate One-Year Contracts forum

Verizon can do what they want, clearly, but don't insult our intelligence by saying it's "what the customers want." Clearly that IS bs. It's what THEY want. If so many of their customers opt for the 2 year, then what would be the big deal with leaving the 1 year option in place? Ah......shenanigans....

You are absolutely correct. All these people screaming about how wonderful it is will find out soon enough that it will only be wonderful for the rich and powerful, not the consumer. Hopefully Sprint has some success in their fight.

Doesn't take much to get you using exclamation points and smiley faces, does it? what are you, 12? Or does At&t pay you for the advertising? Such a stupid post. Grow up. No one cares.

Good post. I wish other people would not post their experiences from years ago, but would stick to how Sprint is doing NOW. I would like to see the company do well and regain a competitive edge. It only helps the industry exponentially. I don't get the alliance to a particular carrier. No carrier really cares about its customers except to the extent they line their pockets with profit.

Re: Black Berry Messenger on Android Phones? Truly?
Mar 9, 2011, 10:21 PM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

I agree 100% Chris. Had an android phone for 8 months and while I won't say I didn't like it, I went happily back to Blackberry. I just missed the ease of my berry, it works better for my needs and I never quite got used to the touchscreen typing. I also couldn't stand the ridiculous battery life. Not everyone needs the latest tech toy to play through their day, some of us need a device that makes ...

This is my take: I want a phone that can wash my car, do my dishes, clean the garage, take the kids everywhere, pay my bills, surf the web, play my music (all simultaneously), and just be the coolest thing EVER, and I want it for a PENNY because, hey, I WILL sign a FIVE year contract so I get that price. Hell, I'll even buy it at a USED CAR DEALER with no knowledge of phones if it ...

Zip it, Pro. Verizon never makes anyone who has an existing plan/contract change it as long as they keep that device or contract. You are a troll. Go away and take all your Spring friends with you. 8)

in the Verizon Wireless forum

Wouldn't this just be pointless though? If someone REALLY wanted the phone badly enough, they would be willing to switch their phone # with another family member, I'm sure. Why it makes a difference who's number is on what line I don't understand as long as you sign on the dotted line for another two years, unless I'm missing something (which is entirely possible).

One of the actual Verizon reps could better answer the question as to whether or not they are the same phones as those that are given as insurance replacements, but if they are, I have had several of those and they are fine (often times performed better than the original).

Alright, I gave you "edjucate" the first time you used it because I type fast and often have typos. But clearly you think that's how the word is spelled. Educate yourself. It is not. The little red squiggly lines that appear under it might be a clue as well. Now continue on with your fight with Epik and Menno.... :wink:

Initially it's going to be ridiculous. Only because people in the main always want what they can't have.

People with berries or dumbphones are most likely to want and will prefer the iphone. You're right in that respect. But I think people with android (who know how to use it) who give that platform up for Apple may find themselves very disappointed. Just my 2 cents.

Happy new year Scott! Can't wait for the iphone myself. Just so one of my bosses stops whining.

I'm thinking my kid can just wait until March when I have a legitimate upgrade and then get it (or whatever else exists at that time). Thanks everyone. Too good to be true is always too good to be true...

Took my son to VZW corp store to price the Droid X at full retail. He wants for Christmas and was giving me half of the price. No upgrades at this time. Rep says "running a promotion. Put another line on your account, get him the X, put an old phone on his existing line and we will waive the $10 fee for the life of the 2 yr contract." Does this sound legit?? I've been scratching my head...
