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.

Is Verizon Wireless having issues in the Tampa Florida region with bill on the data devices?

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?

Nokia 920 vs. Samsung Galaxy 3.

Verizon will likely get the Nokia 920 sometime in the new year, is my understanding. If you were choosing between the Nokia 920 and the Samsung Galaxy III, which would you choose and why? Thank you for any information you may provide. -Chuck-

Verizon Employees- Help!!!

Need some help/info. Currently I have a Motorola Razr with an unlimited data plan. I just tried to upgrade to the Motorola M and was told that I would lose my unlimited data plan. Is this true?

I thought the only folks with an unlimited plan would lose it if they were coming from a 3G device or going to the iPhone 5. Am I incorrect? The rep said this changed sometime in June 2012.....

I appreciate anyone who can shed some light on this for me. Thank you and Happy Holidays to all!!!!

Don't Park by Verizon Store

My local Verizon store has a booster in the store to make it look like the 4G service is great. If you park a car that has keyless entry and start close to the store, the booster will interfere with the fob and your car will not start. You have to push your car away from the building to get it to start. The employees act like they know nothing about it. More deception by the BS company!!!!!

HTC Rezound

So I have an Incredible and a Rezound and the audio on the Rezound sounds like I am underwater. Any idea what's going on? No one wants to talk to me unless I call them back on the Incredible.

Tech support had me erase phone storage and then told me not to install any apps or restore my apps to see if that fixes the trick. It didn't. Now they are sending me a new Sim Card. He says my old one might be corrupted and causing the problem.
