8600 not a bad phone

I went to the VZ store and looked at the 8600. It looks cool and VZ had a phone to try. Of course with there crafty was, they were doing there sell pitch for the LG.

I didn't like how LG 4400b feels when holding the phone to your ear. Those buttons on the side are a bother!

The 8600 looks perfect. I tryed out every feature and there didn't seem to be a issue.

Choosing a service plan

I am currently looking for a new phone and was going to extend my service (if i stay w/ Verizon) and was wondering, can i get a new phone now and then if i dont like it get a new one in 2 months, or 3 or 4. I just dont want to get a phone and then find a better one came out 3 months down the road. Is there any way to avoid this?

Is the a Samsung 530s worth looking in to. I got the LG 3100 and I like it, but I'm starting to get bored with it. I still have 10 days to return and pick up my final phone.

ATTN: Big Poppa

You seem to know a lot about verizon phones and I wanted your take on the 89000 vs. the Vx6000. These seem like the only two phones worth a damn at verizon. I have the old Kyocera 2235 and am ready for a new one. I would like the Moto V810 but it looks like that won't be out for a long time. Any thoughts?

What are other companies doing??

Verizon Wireless is Giving customers who port in request that have taken more than 48 hours an automatic $25 credit to thier account, which is to more than enough to cover the cost of running two seperate accounts for a couple days.

What are the other companies doing to compensate thier new customers who are porting in, and experiencing delays??

VX6000 vs. CDM8900 reviews

I need an opinion on which phone to buy. I want a good phone and I am hearing bad reviews on the new 8900. How does everyone like the 6000? Are you noticing good coverage even though it is all digital? Also why does verizon's phone selection suck compared to everyone else??

Cellular Phones and TTY

Hi! Does anyone have any information on how TTY works with Cellular phones? More specifically Verizon. I have searched and searched and found nothing. I have even called Verizon Wireless Customer Support and they have no information whatsoever. It's a shame really. We have sold some Cell phones to hearing-impaired customers and we feel bad that we cannot supply any customer support because we don't know much about the technology either. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I've had the phone for one year and I still can't figure out how to search the phone book by name.

(Sorry if this is a stupid question).

Service In Salt Lake & new phone recommendation.

I am moving from NYC to Salt Lake City and I am wondering how good the service is out there.

Also I am gonna dump the T720 in January (good riddance to this POS).

If I had to make an ordered list of features I need they would be
1. reception
2. battery life
x-1. camera
x. color

So while the color camera would be nice I rather get a phone with great reception and battery life. Any recommendations?
