I still have 5 dyas left to change this, so wanted some input on this.Would it have been better to sign the 2year and get a better phone like a530 for 40 bucks, or stay with the 1 year and paid 100 dollars for the Moto v60s

WAP 2.0 (again)

I posted this in "Development" as well. Don't flame me. I really want an answer.

--------------------------------------------- --

Let's say that I have a single-band 800MHz 1xEV-DO CDMA phone that has WAP 2.0 and Java.

and lets say that the only carrier that I can activate it on in my area is VZW.

and lets also say that I have all the required information (IPs and stuff) that I need to get it activated.

what would be the best way to get this phone to connect to the data network?

I'm assuming that all I would need to do is get a network connection, ANY connection, because after that, its all just a basic connection which allows me to transmit and receive any data, just like the 1xRTT PC cards and the PDA phones. 1xEV-DO ...

Verizon Push to talk

Has any one heard when Verizon will be coming out with a new push to talk phone. I heard Verizon was tentative with a Samsung model. And possibly a Motorola, just curios on some makes and models as I am in the market for a new phone and have been patiently waiting on a new color push to talk phone from Verizon since early August.

Rolling Eyes

I am in search of a device that I can hook my VX4400 to, and connect it to a cordless landline phone. I seen this on TV the other day on the news, and I have tried to contact the news channel, but I have not had any luck.

THe news channel said it would run about $60.00 but no one in the Toledo, Ohio area sells them yet.

Does anyone know what I am talking about? It is the size of a cordless phone base, and your cellular phone sits inside the base, and you are able to use your cellular airtime minutes, but carry your conversations on your cordless phone that is connected to your cellular phone.

Kyocera 7135


So, I am not sure if anyone heard of this yet, but - Verizon is now finally admitting that there is a problem with the Kyocera 7135s. The specific problem is with the battery - if you leave the phone to charge for longer then 4 hours, the battery will overload the phone and cause it to act in a variety of wierd ways - in my case, it would loose connectivity to the network for hours and the only way I'd get it back was to either wait it out (few hours always) or to discharge the internal Palm battery which can be done by taking out the main phone battery. That action also does hard reset, effectively wiping out all of the information you had stored on the phone.

I knew of this problem for 5 months, was told by Verizon in-store tec...

Is Verizon REALLY that good?

Well I am a AT&T customer currently on a 2yr aggrement. I am thinking of switching carriers when my contract ends. I have started doing my research on which carrier to go to next and I seem to hear nothing but good things about Verizon...until I found phone scoop. This is the first time I have actually heard anyone say anything negative about Verizon. I still am looking to see if they truly are "the best" but right now I don't like the phones they have out. I do like the LG vx6000 but I am pretty sure they will have bigger and better phones by the time my contract expires in 2005. I am really looking for a phone carrier with walkie talkie options. Before Nextel was the only way to go but now I see Verizon and now Sprint getting in on the act...

LG VX6000 Reception

I just picked up my LG VX6000 today and I have to say that I am not impressed in the reception. I never dropped a call with my Kyocera and this one has dropped 5 calls today. If this doesn't get better I am sending it back. Does anyone know what phone has the best reception out there????

Will Verizon have Free Incoming Calls?

I currently have Nextel and I am wondering if Verizon will come out with Free Incoming Calls like Nextel has. That is the only thing that is keeping me from switching companys.
