Re: Verizon reception
May 13, 2014, 11:59 PM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

My reception sucks in Wal-Mart, too, but we're talking about a combined three or so hours in a month that I'm in a Wal-Mart, which hardly seems like an overwhelming reason to switch. But moving past that for a moment, I might suggest asking this question in the AT&T forum, where you're likely going to find AT&T customers who may be able to give you better reports on their experiences in Target or Wal-Mart, and just might even be in ...

Re: iPhone 5S unlock question
May 13, 2014, 12:36 AM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

The nano SIMs used in iPhones are not compatible with anything other than iPhone. Most likely the phone will work, but you'll have to borrow an IMEI from the Verizon sequence assigned by Apple. With the right SIM and an activation run with the wrong IMEI (but a Verizon iPhone one), you should work.

You're going to switch carriers because they can't provide reception in a place where they can't guarantee reception anyway? OK.

Two pieces you might need. First, try BitPim (bitpim.org) to be able to transfer from the phone to the computer. I'm not sure about Windows 8 compatibility, but you may need to download VZ Access Manager for the phone's drivers. Try the download at http://www.vzam.net/download/download.aspx? productid=631 The file is for Windows 7 or older, buy might work.

Funny, I see iOS becoming irrelevant in the next five years, myself. Funny how that happens.

Re: Customer Service very lacking
Oct 29, 2013, 1:43 PM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

Seems to me that both interactions should have been handled differently - the first with a follow-up, the second with more empathy. As for insurance, unless you've been telling the insurance company about your damage, they probably would have no idea your damage had been reported to Verizon. In most parts of the country Verizon is in an open enrollment period for insurance, so adding it isn't fraudulent. The part that may be questionable would be filing a ...

A lot of the empathy has been threatened out of us old-schooler, but some folks just don't give a crap, regardless of how long they've been there.

Re: Customer Service very lacking

Thank you for having a good disposition about the whole thing! I hope I didn't come across as being a jerk, either. I usually tell it like it is, but I try not to overstep. If you can switch to Edge, that could be a viable alternative. It DOES cost you more in the long run, but it also leaves you with more options should something change. As for expectations, I remember the days when we had more options to ...

Re: Customer Service very lacking

in the Verizon Wireless forum

While Verizon and AT&T often mimic each others' programs and seem to copy off each other all the time, the two have very different policies when it comes to how they conduct their business. To put it bluntly, you asked too much by asking at all. Does that mean that what you ask for is impossible? Not at all. But you'll be hard-pressed to find anyone who can get even request an override, let alone ...

Re: More Options for Basic Phones?
Oct 21, 2013, 10:22 AM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

You can buy basic phones pretty much wherever you want, from Verizon, from a reseller, from the web, new, used, etc. You can start from pretty much any direction. This is like buying any phone, you're just looking for a particular category of phones. You'll find most Verizon stores will have the newer models, even if they're not on display. Resellers (Best Buy, Wal-Mart, mall kiosks, etc) will not have the same selection, as they may have ...

Re: sending pictures
Oct 8, 2013, 8:25 PM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

If I remember correctly, it should be the left option button. Those are the two buttons that correspond to an option at the bottom of the screen. While in the phone number field, you should be seeing a "123," which will change modes when you press that button. It MAY be the other side, too.

Re: Where's your phone number?
Oct 8, 2013, 1:59 PM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

I would add to what CellStudent said (keeping in mind what you've said about your number in this thread), that the number has likely been reassigned to a current AT&T customer. If the information that indicated it was now with CINGULAR (which is AT&T) said the number was PORTABLE, then it's probably active with someone else now. You need to make sure of this, and the easiest way is to call AT&T and ask.

Re: sending pictures

I assume you mean the Motorola flip phone with that model number. You can enter an email address instead of a phone number, you just need to switch input methods from numbers to letters and symbols. Just enter your email address (email@whatever.com). To make it easier to send multiple pictures, I would create a contact with just the email address (no number), so you can use that every time instead of rotating through letters and symbols.

Authorized reseller in the context of a phone number usually means an MVNO, or virtual operator. Like PagePlus. I do find it odd that your number was reissued so quickly, but nothing's impossible there.

Did I say somewhere that your example was wrong? A) If he has information above and beyond the obvious, he's foolish for flaunting his knowledge of it. B) If he's just giving us a line and actually doesn't know anything above and beyond the obvious, he's a fool for playing a field he isn't equipped to play on. Look, there are at least six ways to keep unlimited data as I see it, and if I can see it I'm sure it's ...

Just as you find the skepticism here amusing, I also find it amusing that anyone here feels they know exactly what I do and do not know. My track record on here is extensive. Yours? >Member since July 16, 2013 Please don't continue this conversation.

Google updated maps, if that's what you mean. They combined the two halves of that program (Maps and Nav) into one. If you don't like it, you can uninstall that update and get it back. Go to the aps section in settings, find the program, and click uninstall. That will revert it for you.

Re: do you need a data plan on an unlocked LG enV phone
Jul 18, 2013, 12:49 PM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

Correct on both counts, however, the POS systems used by VZW will force basic phones that once required data plans onto a data plan, but will immediately allow you to remove it afterwards.

Re: Verizon overcharging on 3G4G Hot Spot devices

in the Verizon Wireless forum

Criminal? By your own admission, you're "not held" to the "normal 2 year commitment." Exercise your right to choose and find something else that works. If nothing else works, no one is forcing you to maintain service. There is no boogeyman holding a gun to your head insisting you have Internet, live near fog, live in the hills, or otherwise.

The mere fact that you have to take someone off-site to tell them something means you're either full of it, or looking to make a buck. Not talking to the right person? Riiiiiight....

You were incredibly generous with your statement. I would have simply said, "GOOGLE IT."

Re: Not even a save offer...
Jun 25, 2013, 3:17 PM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

You wanted to keep your unlimited data. Otherwise, Verizon has more save offers now than I've seen in years. They're simply not interested in helping you keep the unlimited data. Your options are used phone, full retail, or installment plan (full retail with financing).

Re: The awesomeness of Google Voice!!!
May 16, 2013, 12:32 AM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

Minimal data plan is needed for Google Voice. The issue you run into here isn't that Google Voice takes a lot of data, it's that you have to have a lot of data from the Carrier before you can use Google Voice (on your phone while not on WiFi).

Re: Voice mail notifications

As GrinderCB said, you're on a different voicemail system now - a visual voicemail system for iPhone only. The best you're going to get is *86 access, at best, while on an Android. It's be the opposite but similar problem if you'd gone from Android to iPhone.

Re: Goodbye 20 month upgrades
Apr 18, 2013, 11:38 PM

From what I've seen it will effect anyone who's contract ends after January 1st, 2014. Apparently the upgrade date wasn't in the terms and conditions anyway.

Unless you are using ACSS (which means you may have the ability to override the AUTOMATIC change in the system) or live in a state with laws which pertain to this, the default rule will be you lose your unlimited with an AOL. We do them all the time and lose them every time. The only exception will be on older mobile broadband plans, but the second you change your device you will likely lose it these ...

Um, no need for a network extender for THAT. I'd be more worried about the phone itself!

Re: No fees here!
Mar 26, 2013, 1:10 PM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

Not entirely. If you have the new plan and cancel early, you don't have something called a termination fee, but you will still have a bill for the remaining months on your installment plan for your equipment, which is effectively the came reason for an ETF. From T-Mobile's site: If I cancel my service, what happens to my Equipment Installment Plan balance? If you elect to cancel service, all remaining installment charges will appear on your final bill.

The problem is you want to believe the people who tell you what you want to hear more than the people who tell you what you don't want to hear. It's human nature.

Yes, it is Unlimited* internet. * See T-Mobile terms and conditions for what "unlimited" entails.
