pros/cons of the 8900

This question has been asked before I'm sure, but I'm asking again anyway. What are the good and bad of the Audiovox 8900? I'm considering gettting one. I live in Omaha and need the tri-mode, from what I was told, because some places I travel too don't have good reception/towers IE. Northwest Iowa. Also, how does it compare to the LG 6000? I currently have a Motorola T720, but am interested in camera phones. Bottom line is, like everyone else, I don't want dropped calls. Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions.

SAMSUNG A610 Outter display?

I am planning on buying the Samsung a610 in the near future and i have heard that the dummy phone is out and that it also came with a outer display. I was skeptical about buying this phone for that reason. So does anybody know if this phone will have both inner and outer displays? also if theres any news about the release date that would also be appreciated.

Kyocera SE47 / V5

This is listed as Tentative. I just ported over from cingular, and have two lines activated with the vx4400s. However, I would *really* like to pick up the slider for my personal phone. Any idea if waiting for this is a good idea, or should I just cave and get another 4400?

Trial Period?????

I just purchased a moto v60s from my local dealer. Today when I was in the store the arrogant and obviously stressed out immature sales "boy" told me that I am stuck with this phone and could not return it during fifteen day trial period. The "boy" had told me that I had purchased 4 phones this year and returned them all during the 15 day trial period. I do admit to this. When I purchase a NEW phone I expect it to be better than the NEW phone I purchased over a year earlier. Verizon has not come out with REAL phones since I can remember. I have been with them since 1994 when it was Bell Atlantic Mobile (also when they treated you like a customer). All there phones lately are toys designed for children. The phones I returned were the LG6000, ...

verizon's new plans?

Hey does anyone have a heads up about some of the new rate plans comming out in the near future?

Since I'm an agent of verizon, and I'm just a Senior Account Executive. I only get the trickle down effect. So since i don't get the e-mails showing the new plans it takes like a week for me to get the info. I end up getting the information like a day before it comes out.

I would just like a heads up

8900 - Outer LCD in S. CA NOT displaying "Verizon Wireless"?

I apologize for posting this in both this and the 8900 forum, but I'm very curious...

I have heard from a couple people who got their 8900s in S. Cali that their outer display does NOT flash between the date/time and "Verizon Wireless". Is this true? If so, I may have to order one from Santa Barbara, because that is a HIGHLY annoying feature.

Thanks in advance for any replies!
Very Happy

PTT & Camera

I'm with Alltel now "SUCKS", and I was thinking bout switching to Verizon, but I wanted to wait and see if they were coming out with a Push-To-Talk & Camera phone combined like Sprint has. Any help would be appriated.

Digital service and get it now

I get Digital signal (not a very good one but I can make calls) at my house but I often can't connect to get it now or any of its applications that requires connection. But sometimes it does. It's very annoying. And I am not on extended network either. What does this happen? By the way I have T720 if that has something to do with the problem.

simple, slim flip phone w/2 displays?

Has anyone heard any rumors about Verizon coming out with new flip phones that focus on basic characteristics like slimness, battery life and reception?

Like many people, I've been frustrated with Verizon's handset selection, but not because I'm looking for complex, fancy features. I'd actually prefer NOT to have a camera or color display, since I'm more interested in good battery life, which tends to be sacrificed for these features.

Basically, I think the LG 3100 is a great phone, and I would get it if it weren't for two fatal flaws: no analog service and no outer display. The Moto v60s sounds OK too, but it's about the thickest flip phone on the market, which makes my left pocket really bummed out.

So, anyone know anything about ...
