VCAST Music Disables MP3 Playback
This will hurt the service
Everyone loves to be able to download music to their phone, but to take away the ability to add music from your computer to your phone in mp3 version will deter some consumer, like me.
Some people won't care, but others definitely will. Its just so silly... having mp3 support is no big deal, many people obviously have a ton of mp3s sitting on their computers, so why strip out the feature? Because Microsoft TOLD you to? Blah.
The people Verizon is ticking off most with this move are exactly the people who'd be most likely to use the service otherwise... young, techie, into music. Older or non-techie folks probably won't care, but older and non-techie folks usually don't download a lotta music either.

The VCast Music service is a great creation. Some people just always feel the need to find something with a new product that they dislike.
Looks like the 'shill machine' is in full effect. Yet another very recent account, making no other posts than ones to defend VCast Music. Is the coffee good in the marketing dept, bro?
Look pal, peeps did not WANT to complain about VCast Music. Verizon CHOSE to go with the 'no mp3 support, kinda high over-the-air pricing' model. No one forced 'em. And now they're shocked and defensive when people say its not so great? Whatev.
Now I'm hearing that the over-the-air downloads are only 64 kbps WMAs? For a $1.99 download? Yeah, I also hear that a high...
