But it's not like the phone is $60 and limited bluetooth. It's $300. Sounds like the Mercedes of the Verizon phones to me, both in price and how the company has been touting it.


Well, I was referring to the service in general. But I don't disagree. Excluding PDAs, smartphones, and blackberrys, it probably is the nicest phone currently.

Still, not sure what you mean. Do you mean to imply that if the phone were cheaper it would be somehow more acceptable to disable a BT profile? Why? The company admitted that the profile was disabled to prevent piracy of GIN downloads as we all suspected. The audiovox (UT Starcom) XV6600 from VzW has OBEX enabled because it is not GIN capable. So why would the cost of the phone matter?
