Sponge said: look at nokia 5185* series. :) began life in, what, 1993? Only reason they'r enot still around is lack of GPS/E911... Good riddance though... :) Well, that and the Ni-MH batteries had an unfortunate habit of crapping out pretty quickly. If it was updated with a Li-ion battery and GPS, old people would be snapping these up like so many Depends-brand undergarments.

That's not what he's asking about. Yes, go into a VZW Communications Store & have the technician upgrade the firmware. It will make the phone work a lot better, but it's still no great shakes. I had one for a long time & it was nothing but problems, even with the firmware update. Sorry about your friend.

You'd probably have to call Telesales (1.800.2.join.in) to get it done.

in the Verizon Wireless forum

The VX-4400 was the handset that really turned me around on LG. When I sold them through Sprint, I hated the brand with a passion, since all I ever got were complaints, but the VZW LGs seem to be quality devices. I bought one for my wife, and it worked great until the day I got her a VX-7000. Now, it sits in a drawer and collects dust. Oh, well.

Motorola Timeport 270c, V60S & a Sierra 555 aircard. Pretty utilitarian, but then I'm hard on phones & don't have time to be messing with ringtones & such.

Here's a pic with a model holding it to kind of see the scale of the phone (unless she's very, very tall :D ). http://www.mobileburn.com/news.jsp?Page=3 &Id=912 And she's pretty cute, too. I'm not big on the Lucy Liu type, but I definitely wouldn't kick that model out of bed for eating fortune cookies... lol.

Last chance to get a lousy piece of junk! Once they're all out of the warehouse, that's it, no more replenishing! 'Bout damn time, too... stupid outdated lousy not-very-smartphone [grumble]...

No. It will not be replaced, thank God... In fact, when remaining stocks in the VZW warehouses are depleted, that's it, they will not be restocked. Word came down yesterday.

I've had messages 'hang' in the system for a few days before, but it's always when I'm sending a TXT to a Cingular customer or a Sprint customer. I've never had a VZW-VZW message hang up, and I send between 500-800 messages per month.

I'd use the Nokia if it was me. We had a ton of 414s returned due to RF issues & general crappiness, but only 1 Nokia 3589i, and that was due to customer defect, not phone problems. I really like it. I'm not at all happy that they're not going to make the phone much longer. The 6015i is the same price, but has fewer features.

In the South Area, theres a $29.99 local plan that isn't advertised, it's 200 anytime minutes, 1K N&W. No LD, no MTM. As you can imagine, it's not very popular.

Mobile Web 2.0 is SO much easier to use that the older iteration... makes it a hell of a lot easier to sell. That graphic interface makes all the difference.

Check around at exclusive agents. Some of them still have the 9900 in stock. Be warned that you'll probably pay a big chunk of change for them. It's a dope phone. The t9 takes a bit of getting used to, I prefer Moto's setup. Mobile Web 2.0 is a lot easier to use & understand. I think it feels like a very well built device. Very solid. And it's made by Toshiba, so it WILL work over the long ...

Rich Brome said: Keep in mind that even though this model is "replacing" the 414 in Verizon's inventory, it's actually a lower-end phone, with fewer features than the 414. No browser, no BREW (Get It Now). Yeah, I'd stay away from this toad of a phone. Kyo's low-end phones have been pretty bad lately. Buy the most feature-packed phone you can, you'll be happier in the long run. For less than $100, you'll be looking at things like the Nokia 3589i, ...

Coverage in Alaska?
Oct 8, 2004, 11:34 AM
in the General forum

My baby brother is moving to Cordova, Alaska (99574) and none of the Big 6 have coverage there. Anybody have a clue as to who to look at for cellular service? I looked at Rogers & Telus, out of Canada, but they don't serve within the US. I suppose GlobalStar or IRIDIUM would work, but they're pricey as hell. Any suggestions?

I think the design is OK, but I agree that the prototype color sucks. Sprint sold a Sanyo 8100 that was pinkish-white... it was hideous but the pimps snapped them up.

schnozejt said: The LG 3200pp is EMS capable, therefore you can more than likely go to vtext.com and get ringtones/pics sent to your phone. Yes, this is correct. They removed GIN from the PAYG phones because you could download whatever you wanted for free, and VZW got stuck with the bill. Oops.

barryefau said: ewwwwwwwwwww then why get it? Well... it will be a good phone for older folks who aren't into downloading 'In Da Club' or who aren't going to be using the phone as a modem. It's simple, most people that had the 5185 will be familiar with the Nokia brand & menu quirks, etc. My business customers will probably go for it in bunches because it's a very inexpensive handset.

Nowhere on that page does it say anything about being National Access ready.

Re: What's the difference?
Oct 6, 2004, 2:40 PM
in the Nokia 6015i / 6016i / 6019i forum

On the 6015i, Verizon had the BREW function disabled, so no Get-It-Now & also no National Access - meaning you can't use a cable to hook the thing up to a laptop & use it as a modem. I think this is probably a mistake - the 3589i had both, and this phone is designed to replace that handset. Same price point & everything.

Lol. I like the stereotypical hippie on the opening splash. Based on the original posters' somewhat bizarre grasp of the English language, and his tendency to scramble tenses & possessives in his writing, I'd say the original poster was Asian, and trying to shill his product to us. Oy. I like Motorola's Mobile Phone Tools. I've been using V2.0 for a while, and it's a good setup. I hear 3.0 should be a good bit better. I've used Nokia's PC ...
