DON'T BUY THE BUNDLE! V710 IMPORTANT INFO!

Verizon sales reps will try to sell you the phone for $370.00 minus $70 rebate. They'll do this because they are trying to trick you into buying a $50.00 bundle of accessories for the phone. All the sales reps do it and the phone will even be advertised for that price in the store. Read the fine print and it will show the phone for $249 after $70 rebate. Just a tip to save you all some money
Thanks J, sorry about your job Sad
...
They sell you a big bag of crap anyways: car charger, wireless headset, cheap leather case. Sorry, but I already have that from my last Motorola, and I also would be able to buy it cheaper from Ebay.
...
Yeah you are really saving them money. I really hate getting 80.00 of accessories for 50.00, that sucks. Of course I know someone is gonna say I can buy it off of the internet, but who is going to back warranty than. We back the warranty on all our...

The point is...buy it if you need it, but don't be suckered into it.

ummm...

hey guys.

so if the v710 is launching soon, shouldn't the a840 be close behind it? heeheehee... Laughing Rolling Eyes Wink
If it's anything like the rest of Verizon's phones, you'll have to wait forever for the a840.

Yet another crappy flip phone. Still doesn't provide international roaming.

Come on Verizon, can't you release some half decent handsets and not the fi...

They are essentially the same phone, except for GSM instead of Bluetooth. But I'm sure the GSM/GPRS roaming requires significant extra testing.

If I had to guess, I would expect the A840 to be released about 4 months after the V710. Just a guess, t...

Satisfied?

I suppose the next debate will be what time of the day this phone is coming out at?
No doubt! Laughing

Laughing Funny 'muchdrama'! Maybe we can follow it across the US as Lance Armstrong, fresh from his Tour victory delivers v710s as part of his 'payback' for the US Postal service sponsorship!

Let's take some bets on the date and the time of day?

Laughing @ muchdrama

I'll put 5 monopoly dollars on August 12th at 10:18AM and 34 seconds!

Bah!

I just got the VX7000 and im happy with the purchase. I was tired of waiting for that damned 710 anyways. I hope it burns in hell along with the T720 and all the other crap that has been berthed from the child of satan, Motorola, as of late! Smile
