Well, I am looking to replace my HTC Incredible. I would go for the Iphone if it were capable of simultaneous voice and data like every other 4GLTE phone on Verizon. It looks lite either the Samsung Galaxy 5 or the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

iPhone 5S unlock question

I have an ATT iPhone 5S that I unlocked, same model number of the Verizon iPhone 5S. But when I go to activate it it says 'No Service' and it won't allow me to activate online either. I'm just swapping my nano SIM from my Droid Maxx to the iPhone 5S, I figured it should work. Thought that was the point of the iPhone 5S being the same across most carriers here in the US.

I have two NOTE2's under a 2 year Contact that I am about 5 months into. One of my NOTES got dropped and shattered the glass. The LCD works fine, but I am too lazy to replace the glass.

I was looking at $200 ~$300 UNLOCKED phone option. I would totally go with a NEXUS 4 or NEXUS 5, but they are not CDMA, only GSM.

I don't want to pay $599 for a new Phone from Verizon so I am looking for options to ride out my contact or a new phone I love comes around.

I have seen the Samsung Galaxy Nexus SCH-I515 No Contract Verizon Cell Phone on AMAZON.

Is that the only NEXUS phone option?

Help, my father has this old phone that he wants me to pull a ringtone off for him. When I connect to my Windows 8.1 computer, it does not recognize the device. Is there any software that is available (without spyware) that will help this phone get recognized? THANK YOU!!

Verizon's & iPhone Limitations

Now that I use my iPhone for business and I talk more on it than ever I have made some findings about Verizon and my iPhone that discuss me.
1. I can't disconnect the second caller of a conference call without disconnecting the first caller. This isn't good for business.
2. My iPhone 5 won't allow me to view my call history when I'm on an active call. Really? This is a simple task that my $600 phone won't perform.

Best non-smartphone for Verizon

I went through 2 flip phones from Verizon within the past year and they both broke on me and have bad call quality. Is there a different phone I can buy on like eBay or a 3rd party site that will work with Verizon and is reliable (will last at least 2 years without malfunctioning or degrading in quality) with good call quality?

Verizon Edge availability

Ok...looks like we are going to switch to more everything and use unlimited data...phones are just too darn pricey otherwise.

Question: my wife and I have 2 lines both eligible for upgrade in June.

Are we able to renew our contract, switch to more everything and upgrade with Verizon Edge prior to June? Do we have any options prior to June? Our current phones are not even 2 years old and freeze even after reset....awful.

I tried to chat with Verizon online but was not working

Upgrade/Switch Device

Once upon a time, things were simple. If I chose to upgrade online it was easy. I just logged into My Verizon, ordered a phone and when it arrived, i merely called the phone number and chose option two to accept the contract terms but activate the phone later. It's not so easy these days. I call the activation line and there is no option for activation later. I was given the option to activate the phone on the line I upgraded or another line on my account however. This is really a pain.

Customer Service very lacking

My wife and I, have 20 yrs tenure with VZ, as bought up with a Alltel by up.
We upgraded in Jan of this year to Droid Razr for her and myself. We got a Droid Razr Maxx for her Pops and had started him a line in Dec of last year.
He recently became ill and passed away a little over a month ago. VZ did drop the line without issue when he did, so there is no issue that way.

I issue comes like this. When he became sick, he had given us the Maxx back, but with a broken screen and didnt want the service anylonger. So I sold my Razr, a mistake I wish I could take back. And simply activated the Maxx on my line, it was returned to us with a cracked screen though.
Its a hairline crack, you dont feel it with your finger, ...

More Options for Basic Phones?


I currently have a smart phone on a family plan with Verizon. I want to downgrade to a basic phone because I hardly use my smartphone. I am up for renewal, but I want to know if I can buy basic phones outside of the actual Verizon store and use it for my family plan.

How would I go about doing this? Where can legit basic phones be purchased online and used for Verizon plans? What are someone the best basic phones out there? I need something with reliable talk/text. A good camera would be an optional bonus.

Thank you.
