If anyone wants to keep Unlimited Data w/o paying the outrageous $600+, here's a decent choice. . .

HTC Rezound full-retail for $399 on Amazon Wireless, so if anyone wants to get a new smartphone w/o paying the ginormous price of $600+, this would be a decent choice. Thought it would be worth sharing. d-Verizon-Wireless/dp/B0061R3DVO/ref=sh_br_ph _21?ie=UTF8&transaction=INDIVIDUAL_NEW&sr=1-2 1-entd&qid=1364650208312

Any idea when Verizon is going to start deploying LTE-A?

All the dealings with the FCC over the 1700 AWS from the cable companies is over, sooo I'm wondering when Verizon is going to start deploying 700/1700 LTE-A??? Stuff I've been reading about carrier aggregation is also very exciting!

I'm hoping Q4 of this year, or Q1 of 2014.

Has Verizon mentioned at all their timeline to
start implementing 700/1700 LTE-A?

Want to upgrade but still have unltd data

On average I use around 4GB a month and that is with absolutely little to no wifi use (4G is often faster). I somehow also used 6MB this morning at 5am while I was sleeping Surprised So between the wifi and somewhat monitoring my data use I could easily drop my data usage.

My current plan is 900 minutes ($79.99) with unltd data/text ($29.99) with insurance and taxes my monthly bill is roughly $122.

So Im thinking of just signing a new contract and doing the 4GB plan ($40 + $70) which means I would pretty much be spending the same amount as before.

Any input on my situation would be appreciated, thanks!

Call/Message blocking

VZW allows you to block phone numbers from your MyVerizon page.
Will this also block iMessages from a number you want to block? Confused

Why do carriers charge for an upgrade fee when we extend our contract with them? I think its too much already because we've already paid the activation fee when we got a new phone, so why do I need to pay for another upgrade fee just to stay with them?

Samsung Galaxy III

So is Samsung Galaxy III still the phone to beat on Verizon? I know the Galaxy IV is going to be announced but right now the Galaxy III is the best out right now right?

As we all know jailbreaking is illegal. But there is a process that is legal. It is on the tip of my tongue and can't get the name for anything. Do any of you guy know the name of the process and how to do the process? So I can open all possible apps functions of. And if you do how do I go about proceeding so I can get the most out of my phone. I am using the Apple iPhone 3GS by the way. Thanks in advance.

Thinking of switching ?

So I was suckered into Sprint's unlimited data, only to find out that I made a big mistake. What good is unlimited data if I can't use it half the time or it is slow as hell, I still don't have 4G in my area. So I wanted to know if I were to switch to Verizon, would there be anyway that I could get the unlimited data ?

Upgrade - Razr Maxx HD or wait?

I have a Motorola Droid X2 and really have no problems with it. My upgrade is available though and it wouldn't be right for me to just let it sit there. My wife has the Samsung Galaxy S III, and while it is nice, it feels a little light (like the heavier phone) to me.

So, I was looking at the Moto Razr Maxx HD. The phone looks really good, and the reviews all seem positive. My question is, since it has been out for about 5 months, should I wait just another month or two for a different phone that may be even better.

Problem is, I don't see any other phones out there that are "coming soon" that I'd have to have. The only other phone I've read about was the LG Optimus G, but that isn't on Verizon, and I have not seen the LG Optimus ...

Upgrade time.

What do you guys think? Have an Incredible, thinking I may just make the leap and get the iphone 5. Possibly stay with Android and the Rarz Maxx? I don't want a phablet like the Galazy 3.

VZW MMS on Androids

I've seen this before on Android phones I've used with Verizon. When you receive a picture (MMS) it plays it like a mini movie and you can't pinch to zoom or anything.
How do you get an Android phone to handle MMS's like every other phone?
If someone sends a picture that's to small you can't enlarge it.

Verizon Price Increase RIPOFF!!

In December, I wanted to get a LG Touch for my daughter for Christmas and I was told that I had to wait until February due to my upgrade subscription. Now I have 4 phones ready to upgrade and they want to charge me an extra $9.99 per phone because they demand a data charge. This is unacceptable! It's the same phone that was sold in December without the extra charge.

It appears that Verizon wants me to take my family plan (5 phones) and my $180.00 a month to another company. I have been with them for over 9 years and they are willing to lose a loyal customer because they refuse to adjust this extra charge.

I have called every day for the last 5 days and no one is willing to help. I'm respectful to the agents, the Supervisors say th...

Knack or Coupe? Which is best for an elderly parent?

My mother is on the VZW family share plan and calls me frequently but sometimes she really wants my brother. I think it's because she can't see the keys or the display well enough. I noticed that VZW is marketing two different phones to senior citizens, the Samsung Knack and the UTStarcom Coupe. Mom doesn't use any features other than voice calls. No surfing, e-mail, video, text messages, etc. Any ideas about which would be the best option?

Business is ALWAYS personal. ... »

" Verizon’s faster data networks also cause users to eat through their data allowances more quickly. This eventually prompts them to buy more expensive plans with higher data caps, which of course net Verizon even more cash."

Brilliant! Simply BRILLIANT! I do believe Mr. Shammo deserves a RAISE!
