Upgrade time.

What do you guys think? Have an Incredible, thinking I may just make the leap and get the iphone 5. Possibly stay with Android and the Rarz Maxx? I don't want a phablet like the Galazy 3.

VZW MMS on Androids

I've seen this before on Android phones I've used with Verizon. When you receive a picture (MMS) it plays it like a mini movie and you can't pinch to zoom or anything.
How do you get an Android phone to handle MMS's like every other phone?
If someone sends a picture that's to small you can't enlarge it.

Verizon Price Increase RIPOFF!!

In December, I wanted to get a LG Touch for my daughter for Christmas and I was told that I had to wait until February due to my upgrade subscription. Now I have 4 phones ready to upgrade and they want to charge me an extra $9.99 per phone because they demand a data charge. This is unacceptable! It's the same phone that was sold in December without the extra charge.

It appears that Verizon wants me to take my family plan (5 phones) and my $180.00 a month to another company. I have been with them for over 9 years and they are willing to lose a loyal customer because they refuse to adjust this extra charge.

I have called every day for the last 5 days and no one is willing to help. I'm respectful to the agents, the Supervisors say th...

Knack or Coupe? Which is best for an elderly parent?

My mother is on the VZW family share plan and calls me frequently but sometimes she really wants my brother. I think it's because she can't see the keys or the display well enough. I noticed that VZW is marketing two different phones to senior citizens, the Samsung Knack and the UTStarcom Coupe. Mom doesn't use any features other than voice calls. No surfing, e-mail, video, text messages, etc. Any ideas about which would be the best option?

Business is ALWAYS personal. ... »

" Verizon’s faster data networks also cause users to eat through their data allowances more quickly. This eventually prompts them to buy more expensive plans with higher data caps, which of course net Verizon even more cash."

Brilliant! Simply BRILLIANT! I do believe Mr. Shammo deserves a RAISE!

Billing issues on data overages

In the last couple of weeks I have seen Verizon customer getting huge bills for data overages that I suspect is wrong.

phone deal?

Just bought a Droid m for $1... if you have a hhgregg near you they are having a sale.. tons of models at $1 and may come with UP TO a $200 hhgregg gift card. If you want a droid 3.... lol

You can get a nexus, rezound and a few others for a $1 and then get $100 gift card to their store. Tried to talk the wife into the Rezound, but she liked the size of the m. Me personally,rocking an Incredible 1, can't upgrade just yet.

I know they are not out west, but it is an electronics store out of Indiana.

What do you think of the DNA... I think that is my next phone.

Dear Verizon

You people reported me for saying and I quote "what now bitch" and I don't understand. I didn't say this to anyone in particular. In fact it was all a matter of fact like I was just saying for no reason, I wasn't talking to anyone ok. This verizon forum is super sensitive. Now that last sentence was directed to the general forum populous, unlike my "what now bitch" statement. I'm pretty mad that someone would misconstrue that and take personal offense. How can you even take offense? Really makes me mad, mad that I got in trouble for something I never did.

That is all, wish I could report whoever reported me, I would report you as being a jerk and violating the TOU

HTC Incredible

I guess I have to face the obvious: the original HTC Incredible is simply a better phone than the Rezound and apparently the Galaxy S3. I have owned the Incredible for over three years now and I have owned the Rezound and then recently the GSIII and the sound quality for other callers is simply better on the Incredible. I am giving up on trying to understand how this can be. Now I simply need to decide on whether I simply want to cancel the GSIII line or not.

iPhone 4s to HTC DNA

I have an iPhone 4s on Verizon that I was given as a company phone. I would much rather use an android phone as that is what I am used to having for the past few years. If I buy the HTC DNA at full price from amazon, can I just take the sim out of my 4s and put it in the DNA to switch over to it? Will this work with any of the new Verizon phones that take sim cards?

Not digging the phablets

Hey All,

I'm eligible for my upgrade in Feb. and I can not even begin to tell you how much these massive screens annoy me. I've been an android user for years but am thinking about switching over to the iphone simply because of the screen size issue.

That said, are there any other phones you think I should consider and if not and I do go with apple, jump in to the 5 now or wait a few more months and see if there is a 5s or 6?

Fringe 4G area and RAZR HD/iPhone 5

So where I work there are VZW 3G & 1XRTT repeaters. I tried out the RAZR HD and it latches onto 1-2 bars of 4G and is virtually useless. No data, no nothing and I can't get it to switch to 3G which obviously I'd get full bars.

I was wondering if the iPhone 5 is better at switching to the stronger signal in the area? Or if it's radio would act the same as the RAZR's...any 4G signal takes priority?

iPhone to Android reset iMessages.

Any help with this would be appreciated?

Going from an iPhone which I was using iMessages to an Android. ATT seems to reset and go back to regular texts no problem. But on Verizon texts don't go through either way.

I have to have another Verizon iPhone user turn off their iMessages, we swap texts, then they can turn iMessages back on. Then texts start to flow between the two OS's just fine.

Why doesn't the network pick this up without having the iPhone user going through all that mess, and go back to regular texts like ATT's does?

Puerto Rico service with Razr Maxx vs Samsung GalaxySIII

I have a Razr Maxx & can only get 1X service. My friend has the Samsung Galaxy SIII and he is getting 3G service. Verizon tech support after reviewing all my settings, feels that the antenna on the SIII may be stronger at picking up 3G. Another year in P.R. with INFERIOR service. Perhaps ATT is calling me. Any advice.

Recommend an inexpensive phone for upgrade?

Hi All,

I'm looking for a new phone and don't care about it being the newest. I just want a solid phone with decent battery life and to say goodbye to the bugs I find with my Droid X2. Battery life sucks, icons disappear randomly, doesn't always connect to the internet, turns off by itself, etc. An easy to type on keyboard wouldn't hurt.

Any ideas?

Verizon LG vx8100 speakerphone function

Hello one and all, and a happy new year to you and yours!

Here's my problem...I recently switched to my daughter's discarded Verizon LG vx8100 flip top cellphone and even without the equipment manual or guide (which I've been trying to find to download), I can't get the much needed speakerphone enabled. I see that it is located by symbol on the CLR button, but it does not turn on...the CLR button on backs up or erases.

Help with this issue would be a blessing, as I am not able to manually hold the phone. Thanks in advance!

Samsung Galaxy Nexus

I was looking at the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and was wondering if this phone is still relative in the sense that is it worth getting? I like the price for my upgrade ($70) and even though it might not have all the cool bells and whistles as the newer phones is it still worth it?
