Request for Ban of Account

in the phonescoop.com forum

Rich and whomever else runs this site. I have requested in a few places that my account be banned and if possible that you delete all my posts. I am upset that a reply to a post was deleted but more so that you guys sent me an email accusing me of violating the terms of service which IS an outright lie. I made no personal attack against an individual, but rather laughed at the idea ...

1. Data is mandatory on all smartphones manufactured for Verizon since November 2008 I believe and prior to that All Verizon Blackberries required data plans. 2. Your device will NOT sync with email WITHOUT a data plan unless it is a device which does not require a data plan. The last such devices will be a Palm Centro or HTC XV-6800 or any non-Blackberry devices launched before Verizon began mandating that all smartphones have an actual data plan ...

...instead of the "new every two" perk?" Yes. You can tell them and they will do nothing. Wireless carriers are not in the business of saving you money. I worked for Verizon Wireless for seven years and nothing about the company ever suggested that they are in the business of doing anything but making a profit.

Guess what? Then they cannot have a kid accept something which changes contract terms. That would be like letting that kid sign a legally binding contract.

It doesn't matter that Sprint uses CDMA. Verizon will not activate an ESN which is not loaded in its switch. It's a Verizon phone or nothing. That's the beauty of CDMA.

All Touchscreen Blackberry?

in the Verizon Wireless forum

The keypad is what I miss most. I still have my 8330. Maybe I will buy a replacement battery for it and switch from the Q Black. I could see myself with a Blackberry Torch type device, but if I could have my choice I think I would still go for an Iphone.

I'm sorry but what are you talking about? The only PCS Verizon had was the old PrimeCo. Network Houston Gulf Coast and a sliver in Florida. Once the Alltel merger was complete they dumped Gulf Coast. I'm not sure about Houston or that Florida slice. Verizon should be 800MzH nearly everywhere.

"Verizon acquired most of the FCC's 700 MHz C Block spectrum (which lies in band class 13), and many of AT&T's 700 MHz licenses sit in the lower C and B Blocks (which lie in band class 17). A number of smaller operators acquired 700 MHz spectrum licenses in the Lower A, B and C Blocks, which lie in band class 12." http://www.fiercewireless.com/story/a tt-cellular-south-debate-700-mhz-interoperabi lity-fcc/2011-04-26 It's not as simple as consumers think it is.

I don't call CS for anything I can do via My Verizon. I just don't trust them. Bottom line: If you have an Unlimited Data plan NOW DO NOT switch it to a dumb phone. You will NOT get your data plan back.

in the Verizon Wireless forum

Verizon is not going to approve an All LTE device with no support for CDMA1x or Rev. A as long as they are still paying for those networks. So since they have committed to keep CDMA running until 2020 there is no rush.

Sure...

Unlimited for $29.99 is better. And those of us who are grandfathered (for the most part) could care less. We are like the NBA players who agreed to a rookie maximum salary and nineteen year old age limit for American players... Doesn't affect us... Right? Sure, sure...

...we're all doomed. AT&T has already provided hookers and bribes to all the politicians on BOTH sides to ensure their cooperation on this thing. Besides, even if the merger were denied, Verizon and AT&T generally ignore what Sprint and T-Mobile do unless they see an opportunity to put more money in their own coffers (as when Sprint raised the PPU rate for text messaging).

Why?

in the Article: Virgin Mobile to Implement Throttling in October forum

"...come out with better, faster smartphones that can do way more in terms of audio & video streaming & data intensive apps then cap that data at such low amounts..." Because people will pay for it. Data use is right up there with cigarettes, alcohol, drugs and sex. No matter how expensive it becomes people will pay for it.

I remember when Verizon had $0 activation fees on two year contracts. We blasted the hell out of Cingular for charging $36 Act fees. Next thing you know, corporate dropped the bomb...$35 Act fees. Why? Because we were losing revenues of $35 per customer. Better believe the bean counters at Sprint are tallying every customer who is killing the unlimited exceeding say 2GB per month or 5GB and calculating ALL the revenues they are losing.

...which is it? I got my lady an iphone and she loves it. But...she still wants a new one when it is released. She's not clamoring for a new iphone. If there are people who claim to love the phone but want something different or they will cross over to another manufacturer...I would not want to have their love.

There are worse ideas. I mean, if AT&T and Verizon sought a merger THAT would be a worse idea. This one IS pretty high om the totem pole however.

Not the nine states mentioned in the article, but rather the states which have already voiced their approval of the merger.

Jul 12, 2011, 2:21 PM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

Verizon gave us a little song and dance and we swallowed it hook, line and sinker. It was supposed to be a way for manufacturers to roll their devices out without carrier interference. Verizon IS the same company which settled a lawsuit over Blue-tooth profiles on the V710 rather than open the phone up. It is laughable now but at the time a big deal. When they teamed up with Google for Android, many believed ...

When the user of that particular handset is a twelve year old kid who is not legally able to agree to such terms? There is a such thing as taking your Verizon *Bleep* sucking to new lows. Seriously. Get that thing out of your throat so that you can breath again and then maybe you will think clearly, too.

"with a quantified amount it shouldn't matter what device consumes that data because if I use a PC which is capable of consuming the data more quickly that just means I'm going to finish the 2 GB more quickly." You really kicked *Bleep*!

I LOVE the way Verizon has implemented tiered data. When we debated this you argued so convincingly the merits of tiered data and how fair it would be. While I failed to convince anyone that Verizon would tie their wrists to their ankles and have its (VZW) way with them.
