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

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 ...

Another CDM-8900 Quesiton

I just bought the Audiovox CDM-8900. I noticed that my phone does not show the "digital mode icon" to inform me that the phone is in digital mode. But I DO get an icon showing me that the phone is in the "1x service area." How come the "digital mode icon" does not show up on my phone? Does my phone automatically assume it is in Digital Mode without showing the icon? Whoever knows the answer to that, just reply back to this message board. Thanks

Audiovox CDM-8900 ?

Hi everyone. Someone may have already answered this question, but it regards the Audiovox CDM-8900 phone for Verizon wireless. So what's the deal with the Audiovox CDM-8900 phone? Are there problems with getting good reception/signal with this phone? Are there only problems with this phone in certain areas?
I am asking these questions because I am thinking about getting this phone; I live in California. I read that it also has the two-way speakerphone capability. When using the speakerphone, does it project loud and clear sounds?
So, if anyone knows what the deal is, please reply back to this message board. Thanks.

BTW, have a Happy New Year!!!

Samsung To Be Tested - Impressive.

This phone is active in Asia and expected testing in U.S. will begin in June/July 2004. Please note, not all phones make it into production and this is only a test for the phones capability on The Verizon Wireless network.

A cellular phone is now available that lets you listen to music, record video and even control certain electronic products. Samsung's new camcorder phone, capable of storing up to two hours of video streams, is slated to be tested in the U.S.

A music player button is installed on the outside of the unit, allowing the user to listen to downloaded music files in stereo without having to first open the phone. Music-related functions include Stop, Skip, and Repeat, and Random Play.

The SCH-V410 can store up to 30 dow...

Nokia and CDMA News...

Very Happy

This is for everyone needing to know about Nokia and what issues they face on the CDMA Network, where their vision of the future is headed, and helps explain why Verizon Wireless looks at Nokia to improve the phones on the CDMA side.

From CDG (CDMA Development Group)...

During the second half of 2003, Nokia's CDMA business reached a number of new milestones relating to both handsets as well as next-generation technology development. During this timeframe, Nokia has begun shipments of handsets to a group of the world's leading CDMA operators, helping to double Nokia's global CDMA market share during the year. In addition, lab tests and live demonstrations of cdma2000 1xEV-DV technology have helped move this new technology many st...

New Phones

First let me start by saying i am completely happy w/ the service Verizon provides.

My question is for any verizon or cell phone rep that has insight to my thoughts. My biggest concern w/ verizon is that they dont have the latest and greatest when it comes to their handsets. My question is why? Now i have to believe they have done research on what the consumers want and when they want it. I also have to believe they know there are many many people like me w/ this same dissatisfaction. So, i can only come up w/ two possible reasons verizon is behind the tech curve...

1. Do they have contracts w/ cell phone manufacturers (Audiovox, LG, etc.) that say they wont sell a similar product (camera phone for example) for a period of time...

V60 does not work next to other phones.

My Motorola V60, that I've had for over a year, is not working at my desk. It shows full signal strength, but does not ring, or rings, than disconnects. My co-worker sits nex to me with his LG4400 (another with a StarTac) - both get perfect reception. I went to the local Verizon store, they updated the software - no changes.

Should I ask Verizon to exchange the phone? I am willing to bear the cost of new accesories, but I am not buying a new phone or resigning my contract.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Verizons future?

I'm sort of looking into switching to Verizon, but a few questions lay in my mind.

-The main one being that, Verizon doesn't seem to ever have new phones. Its as if they don't want to support the newest technology, cant, or aim for a less-tech-crazed audience. I'm a power user and want the latest and greatest even if somewhat user unfriendly. Is this just not verizons strategy? Will they ever support more cutting edge hardware that other companies seem to excel in? (ex: TREO)
A related question is: do phones that use the same network technology as verizon (or other companies) WORK on their networks, even if they don't SUPPORT it?

-Why no J2ME @ Verizon? I'm going to learn it in school soon, want to use it, and it sounds more open sta...
