Just confirmed Verizon 4G & 3G is down in Chicago! Uggh...

Don't think is has anything to do with 4G vs 3G. I have a Samsung Fascinate and people have told me that they have received the same text twice even though I only sent it once.

4G Blackberry

in the Article: Simple Mobile Debuts New BlackBerry Plans forum

The article says access to 4G for Blackberry but there aren't any 4G Blackberry devices.

Service is great!! Customer service not so much! Been with them for 9 years and wouldn't consider switching to another company.

Verizon Wireless Network Extender. http://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c/store/acce ssory?action=gotoFemtocell Click on the above link and it takes you to a page where you have to enter your zip code. Once you do it'll take you to the page with the network extender. David

Here's the link: http://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c/store/acce ssory?action=gotoFemtocell The device is $299.99 but there is no charge for the service. David

Yes, Verizon does.

Yep, my brother has the Charge. Great phone! The latest software update has fixed all of the problems with the Fascinate and it is back to being an excellent device.

Re: Samsung Fascinate

in the Verizon Wireless forum

Yep!!! Did the software update for the Fascinate and so far so good. Sending the Droid X2 back today. Was not at all impressed with it. Choppy audio, would insert random words when composing a text message, and 4 force closes and 1 reboot.

5 different Android devices and have never had that happen. It would be very frustrating and strange that it's happening across devices.

I disagree. Battery life on the Thunderbolt is sub par. The Samsung Droid Charge is a better choice IMHO.

Samsung Fascinate

Verizon finally admits to reception problems with the Samsung Fascinate. Loved the phone but could not deal with not receiving calls. Verizon is sending out a replacement Droid X2 tomorrow.

Re: Change Phones keep Data?
Jul 15, 2011, 10:56 AM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

Yes. And when I called I was told that it doesn't automatically drop which is strange because it's my understanding that if you try to add a smartphone it'll automatically add a data package.

Re: Change Phones keep Data?
Jul 15, 2011, 8:13 AM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

Hi Epik! Does it automatically drop if you activate a non-smartphone? I had to activate an old flip phone once cause my BlackBerry was stolen and the data plan stayed on for over a month and then I got a replacement BlackBerry and activated it.

Re: Change Phones keep Data?
Jul 13, 2011, 10:43 PM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

My understanding is that it doesn't matter whether you're in or out of a contract or whether you upgrade or not. Any line that currently has unlimited data will keep that unlimited data as long as the data portion is never dropped. If you add another line to an existing family plan and the added device requires a data plan, it's my understanding that the new line will be subject to the tiered data.

Re: Change Phones keep Data?
Jul 13, 2011, 10:26 PM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

You can change your plan you just can never drop your $29.99 data plan. If you do and then want to add data later you'll be subject to the tiered plans.

Re: So now that we have tiered data...
Jul 11, 2011, 7:01 AM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

I have an analogy that I think works. I have high speed internet at home that I pay a set amount for every month. I attach a wireless router and share that data with my neighbor. I don't get charged more, I actually make a little money cause the neighbor and I split the cost now whereas before I was paying the entire amount. In my opinion, if Verizon is offering a fixed amount of data then ...

I really wanna get excited about the Droid Bionic however, every video that I've seen of the device shows it to be sluggish! Any thoughts???? David

Definitely go with the 4G cause data is the same price as 3G. Spend the extra money and get the Droid Charge. The LG Revolution is buggy and takes forever to charge. The Thunderbolt is a nice phone but has terrible battery life. The screen on the Charge is gorgeous and Touch Wiz in my opinion is a nice overlay for Android.

Re: Need help with selecting new phone
Jul 3, 2011, 9:47 PM

That's the setting. LTE is the 4G and CDMA mode will keep you in 3G only. You will still have data in 3G albeit much slower!! :-)

Re: Need help with selecting new phone
Jul 3, 2011, 7:51 AM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

You can turn off 4G on both devices to save battery. On the Thunderbolt you have to download an app from the market to do it. On the Charge it is in the settings.

Exactly!!!! :-)

I would do it soon. If speed is important for you then go for 4G. My brother is a first time Android and smart phone user and he has the Samsung Droid Charge and he likes it. If you're gonna stick with 3G, I'd look at the Droid X2. I have the Droid X and I like it.

Whatever phone you choose get onboard now with the $29.99 unlimited data. Verizon is going to a tiered system on July 7th. I think that date is correct.

Re: BB Protect & New Data Plans

It will be grandfathered in.

If we already have unlimited data we should be okay according to this. http://www.engadget.com/2011/06/21/v erizons-tiered-data-plans-wont-affect-grandfa thered-customers/ David

Only on Android.

in the Verizon Wireless forum

It's crazy, right?? I can't believe that no other Android users have experienced this. It has happened to me on 4 devices beginning with the Droid Eris (no jokes please), original Droid, Droid X, and now the Fascinate. Guess I'll have to Google it. David

12/31/1969??
May 31, 2011, 7:14 AM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

Occasionally, when checking my Comcast and Gmail accounts on my Fascinate there will be a blank email with the date of 12/31/1969. What does it mean? I have also had this happen on my Droid X. Thanks! David

I'd check Ebay. Lots of good quality U.S. Cellular phones. http://shop.ebay.com/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid =p5197.m570.l1311&_nkw=u.s.+cellular+phones&_ sacat=See-All-Categories David

Got it!! I can't do an all touchscreen device. The Bold Touch is the best of both worlds for me. David

Re: Blackberry
May 23, 2011, 2:39 PM

Perhaps you were referencing the BlackBerry Bold Touch which will be coming out in both a GSM and CDMA variant. It will have a 1.2 GHz processor, 8 GB of onboard memory, 720p HD video recording, dual-band Wi-Fi®, a built-in compass (magnetometer) and Near Field Communication (NFC) technology. It will be running BlackBerry® 7 OS. Here is the link. http://us.blackberry.com/smartphones /blackberrybold/touchbold.jsp David

Re: Smartphone with best signal capability
Apr 28, 2011, 1:03 PM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

Ironically, the one device that you will not consider (BlackBerry) is probably one of the best devices at grabbing signal. My Curve and Tour used to pull -80 dBm to -70 dBm consistently.
