Verizon and delayed voicemail

Our company recently switched our sales force over to Verizon from ATT. I have been getting complaints from them that they are not getting voicemails for hours even days (4days!) later. Thinking maybe it was something to do with the Samsung phones I called Verizon. The Verizon rep informed me that yes this is very possible with any phone and is due to going in and out of their network and delays of a few days are possible!!!!!! What!!! What is the point of having voicemail if you get it days after it was sent! Has anyone else experienced this? Is there any way around this? I find this to be totally unacceptable for business use if this is the case.

Companies And Their Beginnings

Cingular Wireless...
Pretty much 5 companies within the SBC infrastructure.
Guess what? Using T-Mobile partner sites for GPRS and GSM Network)

Verizon Wireless...
Verizon Communications
(Partner contracts with Cingular and AT&T Wireless during Analog Mode)

Moobak, those are your facts.
Maybe hard to swallow, but are true

Audiovox CDM-8900

There is a new software version ALREADY out for the Audiovox CDM-8900 tri-band camera phone.

Some stores pulled the phones from their inventory and shelves, per Audiovox, UNTIL the phones were flashed with the software. If you purchased this phone, check with your local Verizon Wireless retail store (with a technician) and see if your phone needs updated.

I will post the new version number and what it fixes tomorrow.

Vrz website, what's up?

I have been going over Vrz's website, and it seems to me that they are hurting for (new phones.)
I'm an ATTWS customer, and I wanted to sign up with Verizon, but their phones look so cheap!
They spend billions on their network, but they don't seem to have anything left for their phones.
Don't they know Nokia out sells motorola by a least 2 to 1.
(And by the way I have gone to their stores and I have held their phones, durability doesn't seem to be a big concern of theirs.)

Will V60S work on National Access?

I'm going to be signing up on a National Access 400 plan, that would allow me to use the time for either data or voice. Does anyone know if the V60S can be used as a modem for National Access (EN)? I really like my V60i so this would use all of my cables bateries etc.

Verizon and Slider Phones

Will Verizon ever come out with a Slider phone? I am very interested in the SL56 from AT&T but do not really want to switch service to get the phone. Is there any hope for me? Surprised

What is the deal? Why is it that if a port is not done quickly people are acting like this crap is a suprise and its the old carriers fault. This is new to all carriers, suck it up and set the real expectations.Issue some damn credit and call it a day. And another thing. Bashing another company does not sound very good to customers. So many people call and ask to cancel a port because the unprofessional bashing made them change their mind. Rolling Eyes

Verizon DID have a phone with bilutin Bluetooth.. read on

Verizon did carry a phone with Bluetooth built in.. it was the Motorola 270c Timeport. However the only drawback is, is that this phone is NOT Express Network capable, it was a 2G phone. So connection speed was limited to 14.4kbps... If you want this phone, you MAY be able to find it for sale on Ebay if your lucky.

I saw the v60s

So this morning I was at my local VZW store returning my Kyocera 2325. The woman was very nice, and asked me if I wanted to pick out a new phone instead. I told her "well I'm sure you know this, but the v60s is coming out next week, so I'll just wait and get that one" She smiled, and said "How did you know that?" Smile I asked her if it was smaller than the v60p, so she said "hold on a second" and went into the back and pulled out the floor model (the fake phones they have on display) and let me see it! The body of the phone is a dark grey, and the front faceplate is chrome (Which isn't my personal preference, but that can be easily replaced) It has the stub antenna like the v60p does. As I was leaving the store after getting my Startac...

Dec 23, 2003, 10:32 AM

Please help!

I have the LG 3100 and all the sudden the phone went to "Extended Network" However, I'm home.

Would a Tri-mode do this?
