We only know as much about this or any phone as the supporting service provider tells us. On more than one occasion Vzw misdirected consumers about the V710. Even the most informed consumer can not know product details that are withheld or manipulated to promote sales. To say that Vzw never overstated bluetooth capabilities is at best an over generous interpretation of the facts. We could argue the details of intention vs interpretation 'til the cows come home. I look forward to hearing what a jury has to say.

Your first statement explains the reason for 3rd party research before purchasing a product as I've made mention of before. If you take only the opinion of the service provider and do no other research, that is not VZW's fault and that's no reason to file a suit against them. It's not as though the complete information was not out there, it just takes a little bit of research, something not completely unexpected if someone is going out to make a larger purchase.

I also stand by my statement that Verizon never overstated the BT capabilities. Spun it to put the best face on it, perhaps, but never overstated. That's just advertising anyhow, that's the way it works. It's there to get your attention. Verizon never once said the phone would do something that it could not do. I challenge anyone to show legit proof of anything from VZW saying otherwise.

I also am eager to see what a jry would have to say about this suit, but given the facts I've seen, VZW has a pretty strong argument.
