Re: Even better

in the Shop Talk forum

I like to respond to that with this: They staff it with the best. If you want less than the best, there's a store with a shorter line across the street. Gets the point across that they're not going to be treated any better by being an ass, and that they are welcome to carry their ass.

Amen to that. Having said that though, RIM has this phone pretty much perfected as the Bold. I can't imagine much going wrong with it. Unless you're waiting for another phone that may wow you, jump on it when the price is right for you.

Re: Actual release dates, not rumored?

Some people I know through PPCGeeks and WMExperts on the TP2. It seems that word going through some circles is that they are in a few of the warehouses already. Also it passed FCC in either JAN or FEB, and it takes about 6 months from then to see the devices in stores, or available for preorder. I have put hands on it, and this is a worthy successor to my Alltel TP. I did ...

It's a piece of sh*t. The delay on the screen is horrible, and the overall feel of the phone is crap. It is not a normal Motorola. It's a Kyocera in Motorola skin. That's got to be it.

That's what I had though, but too many sites are popping up saying this month. I was just hoping someone here would know something, and in the anonymity of PS, fess up.

No, that's a delay. You made that too easy. Think before you type.

To that I say, who cares? For my personal use, I'd rather have WinMo and a touchscreen any day of year.

Most of the issues with WinMo are easy fixes, what kind of problems have you had? Check the forums on those phones, I think you may be surprised. Reviews are high as well.

Actual release dates, not rumored?

Ok, so I've heard the rumors about the Omnia 2 and Touch Pro 2, Omnia being middle (18th?) of the month, and Touch Pro 2 being near the end (22nd?), and I'm hating the rumors on this one. Does anyone know for a fact what days these two phones are launching? Thanks for any actual information.

Re: Storm or Tour

in the Verizon Wireless forum

No. From what I've seen, I prefer the feel of the Storm, but I too hate the Storm's touchscreen. I'm currently using a Curve, and waiting for the HTC Touch Pro 2 and the Samsung Omnia 2 to launch, both of which should be this month. At least that's the rumor.

Re: VZ HTC Ozone vs BB Tour
Jul 3, 2009, 12:33 PM
in the Techs & Trends forum

For as close to your PC as possible, anything Windows Mobile is going to beat the BlackBerry. Cost is also a factor here, the BlackBerry is going to be 199.99, where the Ozone is 49.99 I believe. Both are after mail-in rebates. Now, if cost is no option, the Omnia 2 is coming out this month, but I don't know what day, and rumor has it the Touch Pro 2 is launching this month as well.

Touch Pro 2 is rumored to launch this month. It is gorgeous. The Touch Pro is also a good choice, for either Alltel or Sprint.

What do you want the phone for, that would help to decide on the phone.

in the Verizon Wireless forum

I've not personally seen any quality problems. No, it's not the same as my Alltel version (that I can't user anymore not 6 months after I spent $600 on it, F U very much VZW for that one), but it's still the best WinMo phone VZW has, and will do everything he needs and wants.

Enjoy your lack of high speed data...

Excellent phone, even if the VZW version is down some RAM from non-VZW versions. You can try and activate an Alltel version, and load VZW software. You can also get plug-ins to change the registry, without hacking it, that get rid of the pop ups. For more information on those, and other Windows Mobile plug-ins, go here: www.ppcgeeks.com .

I wasn't comparing this to the Q in problem factor, just design factor. I personally didn't have to many problems when I had one, just battery issues, but I saw enough of them come in, that I knew they were bad.

Price is right too. The only thing I'm worried about is it being another Q. In that I mean this: Where's the touchscreen, or did I miss that in the features? I know the $50 price point is low for a WinMo touchscreen, but with that, it would make this a Palm killer.

It's a piece of crap. I've sold one, and it came back same day. I try to steer toward ANYTHING else. The Glyde seems to be crap too. And the screen on the Rival is horrible for response, but that could just be me, because I'm more familiar with the HTC's.

So...because she's 17, she's not a stupid kid anymore? :lol: Ok, now, down to business. Phone model would be appreciated, however, there may be a way to fix this. I sounds like it may be something simple, so here's my take: She's not doing it by "accident". Either she's sending to everyone in her phonebook, and repeating the same behavior with a simple "Reply All", or she's using an advanced device (Windows Mobile, Blackberry, or Palm, with ...

in the Rumor Mill forum

It may still work, however, you reported it lost to Asurion/Lockline/whomever, right? That being the case, the phone is unusable, and should be returned to the insurance company after your data is transferred. If you just simply bought a new phone, and this one still works, you can use it. Other than minor interference with your existing phone (delayed message reciept and possible call deflection to voicemail), there is really nothing to worry about from your carrier. ...

We've got them in stock at the VZW direct locations! Takes nice pictures too, but the thing is HUGE when open! The mic is near the hinge of ofthe phone, and that's where your mouth is closest to! 8O :lol:

Re: Plan change from Alltel to Verizon
Jun 22, 2009, 7:29 AM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

The only reason that you would have to change is if you buy a new phone that bills per MB, rather than airtime, for data usage. If you're under contract, expect business as usual in almost all situations.

Hold up, wait a minute.

Well, I do quite a few international setups for grand ol' VZW (military community), and I have to say, having the largest mobile community on the planet as a parent/partner is a perk. I haven't had one complaint yet. Now, granted, I haven't been with VZW for long (came over from Alltel as part of the merger, but been in the industry for 10+ years), but I did do a ton of international setups for Alltel, and ...

Not that I want one, I just want to sell them to suckers that want them! :lol: Though, admittedly, the 3Gs looks very tempting at that $200 price point. It makes for a good feature phone.

Can't wait for a CDMA version.
