easyEdge/Picture Messaging

Just a question...was wondering how everyone is selling the new easyEdge/picture messaging pricing. I'm finding it harder than it used to be. When it was set up on the older system, it seemed easier to sell it to people, even though you had to explain mg/kb to most people. Now all it seems they hear is the money for the easyEdge package...then the money for the picture messaging package. By the time you're done, they've added 10-15 bucks onto their package. Any hints?

v710 mp3?

The stores have received the demo and training materials for the v710. The material in no way references the integrated mp3 player. Motorola states on their web site that the mp3 player is a feature of the phone. I hope US Cellular did not remove it from the phone. Confused

US Cellular and the Koi

US Cellular's scheduled release for the Koi is November 24th, 2004. They are also releasing the Motorola V262 and V710 this month as well. The New Nokia flip or "fold" as the Nokia rep told me is scheduled for early next year. About time the US got Nokia's nicer technology phones. Speaking of Nokias the 6019i is supposed to be realeased this month as well.

Wanted: Good PDA phone that works with U.S. Cellular

I want a good PDA phone that works with U.S. Cellular. I know about that big, bulky Kyocera thing. Is there anything else that's new and/or smaller? I prefer Windows Pocket PC or Windows Mobile or whatever it's called, but I'd settle for a good Palm OS or Linux-based phone. Are there any choices besides the Kyocera? If not now, are there any coming soon? I'm due to get a new phone, but I don't want to commit to another 2-year contract if there's a better phone just around the corner. Please help.

Very Happy I received about 100 calls this week about the battery issue that's already been addressed by US Cellular. People are going nuts, like "I need a new phone, mine might explode. " I swear, I could really give those news channels a piece of my mind. lol.

New new

work in the cellular industry, have read a few posts, always want to jump on in, so finally i am able to. i'm glad to hear something about the SoHo. That phone needs something for it's appearance but if it works good than that's good enough.

5550 recall?????

I read on another forum (ok, on Alltel's forum) that USCC has re-called the 5550s because of screen problems. Well???????????

My screen is crap on mine, contrast is very light compared to the 2 other ones I bought. I have it set all the way down to about 5% or so and it is still all washed out. I complained when I bought it, but the dealer said "oh, it's not unusual for them to vary from one phone to another".

Release of the LG VX6100?

I just moved down to Klamath Falls, Oregon this last month. Now, I am in need of a new carrier since my last (Verizon) isn't able to give me all my features.

I've been looking at the LG VX6100, and it looks like a great phone. I've heard that USCC is supposed to get this phone Smile , but all I've found under the VX6100 forum is that it is being released for Verizon Evil or Very Mad .

Does anyone know if USCC is getting the phone or not Confused ? If not, what phone do you recommend?
