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...

In response to Digdah...


I have personally used and tested the Samsung SPH-i700. I found this phone to be the closest thing that a corporate user will need, if using Verizon Wireless as the carrier, but still has some "family-oriented" features.

I prefer PalmONE devices for stability, but this Samsung uses Windows powered PocketPC. Some corporate users like Windows powered phones because they can store and sync documents from work to home and vice-versa.

I do like this phone, but was overkill for what I needed. A lot of executives use it though.

Attn: Big Poppa - 8900 back on shelves when?

Wrong forum, I apologize.

Big Poppa, any idea when they'll be putting the 8900 back on the shelves. My local stores (Boston, MA) said not till mid-January, and the guy at the 800 number said even though the phone appears on the website with a Santa Barbara zip code, the transaction "probably wouldn't go through". He also said they had instructions not to sell any more of these phones under any circumstances until they hear otherwise.

Anyone have any ideas?

New PTT phone

Does anyone have any idea when another ptt phone will come out. This is the first thing that Verizon has done to approach Nextel in the work related area with the instant connect. I just don't like the V60 for many reasons. Any input would help. Thanks!
