iPhone advise and others
Oct 13, 2011, 11:07 PM
in the T-Mobile forum

Hey guys i understand that the iPhone doesn't get 3G or anything else on the phone itself without at least a WiFi in my home or a WiFi hotspot around me all the time for the 3G speeds. So my question is i heard i can get a family plan or a separate broadband account. But since my contract with Verizon is up next December (i know long time lol) which is my cheapest or easiest option? I would ...

in the T-Mobile forum

Is that if i get the rate plans and what not with contract, how much does TMobile tax for the plans like 59.99 or 49.99 a month? Because i don't want a contract anymore after my deal with Verizon runs out next December.

dj89 said: So when they say 300 minutes, they MEAN 300 minutes. No mobile-to-mobile, no nights and weekend minutes, nothing extra. Oh wow, i wasn't aware of the nights and weekend minutes part. Thanks for heads up, but what about the iphone?

Feb 2, 2011, 2:40 PM
in the Virgin Mobile forum

One is that i just resigned my contract with Verizon in August because i was thinking about switching at first until i changed my mind now that i saw Virgin Mobiles Plans. I was like wow thats alot cheaper than what im paying now, and averagely i only use about 200 or maybe less minutes and for 25 a month i get 300 mins, unlimited text and data which is alot cheaper than 66 a month or 75. But ...

Oh i see, well i had a bit of interest in the Samsung Intercept which seems like a cool phone actually. Question im not paying too bad right now which is 66 a month with my current droid plan with just unlimited text to verzon (use GV for Out of Network Text) and unlimited Data. Im thinking about the 60 a month for unlimited everything because my dad is on Verizon network. Is it worth it eventually you think? ...

Wow thats awesome how you know all of this lol! I was thinking about getting the iPhone to get rid of the Slow Processing issues with this device but after what you just said. Sounds like its really worth it. One last off topic question, have you ever had Virgin Mobile service? I was thinking about them because of the cheap cost with them..

LG Ally Speed Help
Feb 1, 2011, 11:45 PM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

When i first downloaded the update the phone was working alot smoother and faster and now lately its been working about as slow as it was when i first got the device. But does it have to do with the amount of apps i have on it or something else that is messed up???

ETF for me?
Nov 30, 2010, 1:09 PM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

Just wondering for those who know the correct answer for this. I signed my contract back in December 09 last year and now i have about almost 12 months left (12/20/11) So i am curious if i make a switch to a different carrier how much would my ETF be? The rep back in June told me 110 so its not 5 dollars deducted each month.

Re: Verizon Data Plan Changes
Nov 4, 2010, 10:59 AM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

Honestly, one thing i have noticed is that some peoples discount may be different but they do give you a discount on the 30 a month data plan for unlimited data. For me it came to 24.89 a month, which isn't as bad as 30 straight through. Just my opinion.

in the Verizon Wireless forum

When Verizon gets the iPhone, is it better to still get a droid phone or go with the iPhone? Just cause my annual upgrade is up soon and my NE2 is in August. So just curious.

in the Verizon Wireless forum

I got my replacement phone with Verizon today and the phone will not read the memory card with some pics i had stored on it from that phone and another one i took pics from. I don't feel it needs formatting but when i put the card in the computer one day it wouldn't eject thinking it was in use with something even though it was not and i took the memory card out with the slot reader and ...

2 Questions about 2 LG Phones
Oct 16, 2010, 10:19 AM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

Hey guys first question is 1) On the enV Touch phone people have said that they could go back down to V09 from V10 but a rep at the store told me that wasn't possible. Do you guys know how to downgrade? 2) Also i was debating about getting the Voyager phone because i hear the phone doesn't have the rebooting issue when you browse the net or something. Can someone confirm this too?

in the Verizon Wireless forum

Oh i see, i know it didn't matter where i got it. I didn't care about that, just wondering if the insurance matters so much at this point. But anyway The ETF thing you put up is that only an example? Because a Verizon rep told me back in June it would be 110 to cancel my contract out with Verizon. Just wondering, i was thinking about either Sprint or AT&T. Im thinking about going where my dad will go ...

in the Verizon Wireless forum

OK you suggest i pay ALOT of money just to leave them when i have a little time left on my contract. That sounds stupid and ok i appreciate your response. I know how the system works and just asking what was the right route to go. 2nd i don't have the money to leave and go to another carrier, have to pay ETF then pay my last month off and along with my new service at wherever i go, thats ...

in the Verizon Wireless forum

I know i just signed my contract. The difference in this case is the LG Touch was bought THRU verizon at the time when i had gotten the device, i went to the Samsung Rogue because of all the problems the Touch was giving me now i found out the Software update for the Touch fixes all the issues i had with it. Thats the only difference, i still bought the Touch with Verizon though. Thats all i was ...

Wondering about Insurance
Oct 3, 2010, 10:54 AM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

I was kinda curious what you guys think, that i was trying to reactivate my LG Touch phone because a new software update came out for it and when i went to activate it online last night it said the insurance would be voided off. But i haven't lost or gotten a phone wet in over 3 years. At this point should i worry about it? Because i only have 14 months left of my contract...

Avoiding ETF?
Sep 16, 2010, 10:52 AM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

Hey a buddy of who my bro works with who is on AT&T, he said if you put your primary line as the "add-a-line" person on the acct w/o text or data package. You can avoid an ETF if you wish to cancel or go to a different provider. Is this true? If not, is there any other way of getting out of it? I only have a yr and 3 months left of my contract.

About Prepaid or i guess "Monthly" Service
Sep 10, 2010, 10:02 PM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

Is that i was looking into straighttalk yesterday and saw they brought out a few different phones, i heard that prepaid service like them i guess is terrible because you wind up paying more for minutes than you actually do. Is this true? And StraightTalk runs on Verizon network right?

Re: The Connect Plan - Wishful Thinking (Lol)
Aug 21, 2010, 4:58 PM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

yeahright said: they are doing $70 unlimited talk and text plans in a trial market right now. If they roll that out nationwide you could get unlimited minutes, unlimited text, grab a droid and you get nav and unlimited data for $100 Why would i want unlimited talk and text when i said i wanted unlimited data and text for 30 and 450 for 39 a month. I hardly talk on the phone as it is. But the question is why are ...

I kinda wish Verizon would bring back the connect plan because it made plans a bit more cheaper and affordable if you wanted unlimited data and texting for all in one plan...lol

in the Verizon Wireless forum

Hey all, i am having alot of problems with my LG enV Touch and i was debating either if the Samsung Rogue would be a better phone for me. All i want it to do is not shut off on me, give me a good browsing experience and not reboot itself randomly. Is the Samsung Rogue phone alot better than the Touch? Im just tired of the Touch at this point!

in the Verizon Wireless forum

Hey i heard that i can call the 800 number to try to transfer my device over and ask to carry the insurance over. My only question is if i activate it over the phone or thru the My Verizon how come it can void off the insurance that way as opposed to calling it in???

Yeah all i was gonna try to do when to try the service out for a bit, and i was not gonna do any over charges on the bill until i MAY make the switch to them.

in the Verizon Wireless forum

Right, i heard there was a way to do it, but i dunno it didn't give me the option for it. But the alternate way to do it is to get the Visual Voicemail though. Does that sound OK to do? I know its 3 a month but.
