VX4400 system services menu questions

In the system services menu on the Vx4000 (0 off menu - password all zeros) - it has a force mode.

The options are:

Automatic
Cell Only
PCS Only
CDMA Only
Analog only

I understand what they all mean with the exception of "Cell Only".

I'd like to force the phone to only use digital signals (either verizons or sprints,
since we can apparently roam into their networks). Why? when I'm up in malibu the phone
jumps to analog mode, but I can't get a call out on analog even with 3 bars... whats funny is there is a digital signal out there.. shows up as 3 bars as well and I can actually dial out. However, once the phone jumps to analog, it doesn't switch back to digital till I'm back in santa monica.

Does the Cell Only = digita...

VX-6000 coverage

I understand that the VX 6000 does not use analog. How does that affect nationwide coverage? Obviously there are places where one would rely on the analog system. Anyone have a map???

VX4400 vs. T730

I am wondering what everyone thinks is better the VX4400 or the T730. I am looking to buy one of these but I am not totally excited about either.

Extended Network

What does it mean when my phone says "Extended Network?" Will I be charged for using the phone when it displays this? Are Unlimited Nights and Weekends not applicable when on Extended Network?

Verizon and Bluetooth, Verizon and better phones, LG VX2000

Does anyone know when Verizon will offer phones with more features - no necessarily cameras, but things like bluetooth.

I was interested in the LG VX2000 because it had a speaker phone and the open faced bar style that I prefer to a flip phone. It seems that LG is not shipping the phone to Verizon, and although it has not been discontinued, the Verizon reps are saying it is no longer available. What is the answer?

Thanks

Kyocera 2325

If all I want is a basic trimode phone with excellent talk/listen and good durability and battery life, will the Kyocera 2325 get me there? I've been seriously considering the LG VX4400, but don't really need many of its features. Thanx!

Samsung SCH-530 or Audivox CDM8600?

I am in the market for a new phone and wanted to know which an all around better phone. I have made feature comparisons (on this site and vw website) and still cannot decide. I have not gone into a store yet (dont worry im not making a decision off your replies, I jsut want opinions)so I dont have any other experience with the phones.

All i want are what Verizon Wireless employees and owneers of the respective phones think.

PS- I currently own an Audiovox for about 18months (and it is my first mobile phone) and I am very happy wiht its durability although my vibrate has begun to malfunction

One more questions, are their any other phones within the $120-150 range that is ESTIMATED to be released before xmas, that may give either pho...

Good Job Verizon... All we need now are better plans

You have great service but you truely need better plans that benefit everyone not if you just in verizon network.

With the new Moble # change and price drops in cellphone cost everything is looking good.

Room for Improvement:

1. All plans need to drop atleast $10 per month.

Question for the VZW people

Okay, this might be a stupid question, but its one thing changing about the phones and Verizon's system that I have yet to grasp the advantage of. With the new phones coming out being all digital and the system becoming all (or mostly) digital and PCS, I don't understand why that would keep Verizon at a competitive advantage. When people ask me what sets Verizon apart from the competition, I say its our network and the fact that your phone has three different ways it can get a signal, instead of just one or two. I feel like taking away the analog in certain situations is not a good thing. I realize that analog drains batteries faster, and that the crackly, poppy sound is annoying when in that mode, but at least you're getting a signal. S...

Is there any way to get an i500 to work on Verizon’s network?

Can anyone tell me if a phone (Samsung i500) that is built for the sprint network and is the same frequency as Verizon’s network (CDMA 800/CDMA 1900) can be activated to work on the Verizon network?

I’d like an i500, but I need to be able to use it on Verizon. Yes, I know about the i600, but would prefer the i500.

Thanks.

SCH-A610 Speculation

I found this link to a rebate on the Circuit City website, so I guess we can infer that this phone should be coming out soon? Cool
