What is going on Verizon - WAKE up IVAN!

I really hope that they canned several VzW VP's this week! What is going on Vz Wireless??????? I know that you employee's often comb through these forums. BUT ENOUGH already! I am embarrassed at your cheap 15 of one color plastic phones. Today, you even threw out another plastic piece of crap!!! Please learn from the lesson of the iPhone, and get off of the lame defending your excuse train!! You have the network, and corporate GREED prevented many of us from having a top notch phone with a top notch network!!!! YES, I am a loyal VzW customer that is VERY _ISSED!! I do not care who you all have allegiance with, VzW currently has the best network, but ATT/Cingular currently has the best phone. So VzW are you going to continue delay with t...

OK, let me say something. Only one carrier at a time can offer something new! Gee, sorry for you Verizon doesn't have the iPhone. Oh, by the way, have you read the reviews? Yeah, you can go get your iPhone and look cool, but like you said, their network is no match to Verizon. I'm not gonna mention all the negatives of the iPhone, I'm sure you have read them. I don't think corporate GREED is the reason Verizon didn't get the iPhone. I really don't know, but I would say it's because they didn't want all the "rules" that Apple requires to offer the iPhone. So if the revamped Prada comes out "soon," then you will think Verizon is OK again? I just get so sick of people complaining about Verizon. If you don't like it, leave!

ok, ok already. YES, i did get if off of my chest. second, i will not back down, vz was greedy, they wanted full control. enough of that, it is a done deal, so we all move on. hell no, i am not leaving the best network. but i am hoping that vzw does not miss the boat this time around, and launches a great product soon! do the math, they can winback customers that they lost last week due the att's crap network. all those on the fence new churned att customers have 30 days to decide. verizon the score is 15-love!, your serve Wink

I agree with the gist of what you said. You agree that Verizon has the best network, but its ridiculous that they don't have the cutting edge phones to go with the great network.

This is why I LIKE the iPhone, actually. Its going to light a fire under everyone else to step up their game... phonemakers will have to make better phones, and focus on making great, user-friendly software, not just 'kewl-looking' hardware. And the carriers are going to have to get off their asses and carry said phones.

I agree with those who say that VZW's phone-lineup has improved some (for example, most ppl I know find the brushed-metal LG 8700 drop-dead sexy... far from the 'turd' someone with apparent cataracts described it as)... but its still not enou...

You're prolly right.

When VZW released a phone 18 months ago that was actually -gasp!- NOT crippled (the Nokia 6256i, a phone I own), I had hopes they'd release more phones that allowed OBEX.

After all, the 6256's release didn't cause the sky to darken, the world to end, cats n' dogs to co-habitate, etc. etc. Laughing

But since the 6256's release, its been business as usual on that front, far as I can tell. Cripple, cripple, cripple.

Seriously, you kind of DO hope that the iPhone slaps VZW around a little, just enough to make them change some of their l...

I know verizon's network is solid but after years of lame phones, I'm just sick of it. I know ATT network is not at good but frankly its not God awful and I'm not a heavy user of minutes anyways. I don't want the iphone until it has 3G and they need work out the bugs. Its a pick your poison game and verizon is not helping with their ancient smart phone line up...anyways whatever I will do whats best for me and I want a decent smartphone for travel.

AT&T does not have the best phone, they have the best ipod...

I dont know what backassward train of logic you are using that greed would prevent a carrier from having a "top notch" phone.. If you want a "top notch" phone, talk to the companies that make the phones and tell them to make whatever the hell you think a "top notch" phone is. VZW doesnt make phones, never has and probably never will. They cant carry what doesnt exsist, so get a clue.

The Prada phone is a GSM phone released by LG with Prada for Europe.. VZW isnt going to release a phone that doesnt work on their network, much less one that doesnt even work in the country. If LG had made a CDMA version of it something would have come out about it by now, why dont you try cont...

the president of verizon corp ivan s. stated last month in the ny times that they WILL have a CDMA version of the prada phone this year. release date to be determined. yes dear, i realize that verizon does not make phones, but they do have a choice what they want to sell. 15 colors or varitions of the lg chocolate or razr, krzr, does not cut it. and no, i am not leaving verizon they have the best network. as far as customer loyalty, if they could get even one month out of a churned customer, that would make their pocketbook happy. again, i hope with the iphone event, will wake up the sleeping giant. Eh?

Yup, it will wake their asses up. ATT is the only serious competition they have and for the iPhone to sell 500,000 units in a day or so has to hurt them. That's 500,000 people that Verizon missed out on and 500,000 worth of business that they lost out on. They really need to step it up b/c nobody wants another chocolate or another crap motorola with rubber on it. Look new rubber on another recycled phone, the W-something. People want flashy, hip phones and Verizon has to do something dammit. If my contract were up, I'd probably switch. Screw loyalty when those you're being loyal too don't give you something new once in a while

Totally agree. My contract is up in early August and if they still don't have some exciting new products to choose from by then I'm gone. Been with them forever and spend about $250.00 monthly.

Yeah, network is key. I like getting all my calls but seriously would it kill them to release a phone that people want. If you had a choice b/t a ferrari and a regular car that runs well and you could afford both which one would you get? Also, data and things are more expensive, so give me ANOTHER reason to stick around. Just check your pockets before you do laundry next time so you won't have to get a phone that has a bumper.

You guys are a joke... you're going to give up on a company because they don't make a "cool" looking piece of junk. What other company can you go with that will give you the quality of service VZW offers? Sprint... no, Altel.. no, ATT... no. If you look at what phones sell and rate as well as how simple they are to work, you can't beat the company. At least the software is similar in all the devices. The Prada will be out and I've already seen the GSM version of it. The phone is awesome and software is probably the only major concern right now. Book it... the iPhone was a fad, the Prada will fill the void.

Wow....it's really not that serious. This is a place for people to talk and vent about whatever the topic is of right? People want what they want and if they can't get it for any reason or another, they are going to complain about it. Simple as that and I'm glad that you're happy with your Gzone type 1 or whatever it's called. Let me know how many times you can drop it and still have it work and be amazed or when was the last time you needed to talk with it underwater...
Getting back to the topic, Verizon got to step it up.

No company can make every one happy. The grass is always greener on the other side. I hear so much about how great Japan is when it comes to cell phones. Let me tell you from experience they suck compared to any US carrier. And they have dropped calls to and crappy phones. No call waiting no three way no minutes in plan pay per use for everything. you get mobile to mobile from 0200 to 2100. WTF is that?

Anyway my point is stop complaining no company is perfect. Why does verizon have to step up they are number one or pretty close to ATT.They must be doing something right!
