VZW Wireless Web

Can any Verizon people help me to set up my VX4400 for VZW Mobile Web? I was browsing the internet on my phone, and it lost the settings.

Will Verizon ever offer phone with Bluetooth?

I'm looking to switch possibly but could use bluetooth for handsfree and computer syncing.

Anyone know if there will be a Bluetooth phone anytime soon? I need to get rid of nextel asap. Thanks.

Using minutes to access 1x network w/ i700

I am confused. I want to get a Samsung i700 and have access to the internet. As I understand it from Verizon, the only way is via the $45 unlimited access plan to the Express National Access network.

However, I heard through Verizon resellers that Verizon customers on the West Coast could access the fast 1x network via the minutes on their plan if they called customer service and coerced them into turning this on for them.

I live on the east coast and would love to be able to access the fast 144k network for the minutes if possible rather than doing $45 extra a month. Is this possible?

Worst case scenario, am I able to access the 14.4 network browsing the full web with their $5 a month plan and minutes.

Any assistance would be ...

How to get v60s

Happy Holidays!

I saw in one of the previous posts that someone mentioned calling Telesales to get one of the new v60s phones. Do they handle the same new account setups as the Verizon Wireless stores? Anyone have the number to call?

Should all the stores have the v60s in stock on 12/26?

Does VZW offer handset insurance? Is it a good deal or a waste of $$?

Anyone have any idea why they have such a limited quantity & why they won't be selling them after the warehouse supply runs out? Does Motorola still make these phones?

Thanks again!

Verizon vs Competition

In the washington dc area, verison wireless is the best for coverage. Can anyone tell me which service would be next? I am thinking of leaving verizon due to their crapy phone selection and i am just plain tired of wondering when a new good attractive phone is coming out.

8900 recall

I just spoke to a Verizon Wireless rep who told me I should return my 8900, they are discontinuing it. She said they are replacing it with the LG 6000, and that it was unlikely they'd update the 8900 and get it back on the shelves. According to her, there are problems with Get It Now connectivity, mobile web and picture messaging on some phones.

This sucks for Verzion. They're back to 1 camera phone, with none coming out soon (except maybe the v810, which probably won't be out till April).

ATTN: Big Poppa

Quick question: I've been a verizon customer for about 18 months, my contract expires in 06/04... my business situation is such that I'm in dire need of a blackberry type device right away. Is there anyway that I can avoid having to pay full retail for a new phone if I get it b/f my contract expires? Don't know if it matters, but my monthly bill is about $150 to $200 -- always paid on time.

Appreciate your input.

New Phone Being released!

the Motorola V60s will be released Friday 12/26/2003!

Here are some of the features!

Tri-Mode
2-way Speaker phone
animated screensavers
EMS capable (Allows you to send and receive txt messages up to a 1000 character in length)

Will only be offered until inital inventory is depleted! Best bet would be is to call Telesales and order the phone!

Also note this phone does *NOT* support PTT, and will *NOT* be upgradable via software for PTT.


Now see what did I tell you.. We find out about new phones *ONE(1) WEEK* before they come out!!
So please people stop asking for release dates like 4-5 months before hand!

Non-PTT v60 for Verizon?

Happy Holidays!
I am getting ready to port my Sprint PCS number to Verizon. My goal is to cut the cord on my home wired phone and go completely wireless.

To accomplish this, I want to get one of the Cellsocket's (www.cellsocket.com) so that I can use my home phones via the cell. Currently, the Cellsocket is only available for Motorola and Nokia phones. It appears that the Nokia models that Verizon offers are not compatible with the Cellsocket so I'm looking at the Motorola phones instead.

The T720 and T730 work with the CellSocket but you lose the capability of using Call waiting and the ability to check your v-mail. The V60 is the only phone that has all the capabilities.

The problem is that Verizon will ONLY sell the phone to...

phone recommendation

I am gonna dump the T720 in January (good riddance to this POS), so I am looking for a new phone. While I enjoy the color screen and think the idea of a camera and Internet are great, what i really want in a phone is great reception, battery life, and a phone that is loud (I find the T720 to be very quiet).

If there is a phone that satisfies my three requests and has the extras (i.e. color, camera) then great but reception, battery life and loudness are the key.

What would be your recommendation?

Thanks so much!

Anyone from Verizon or anyone else know when they are going to release the Moto 810? This looks like Verizon's only promising phone and it is tri-mode. Any chance it will be out by January???
