Vz Wireless Voyager Rant


Nov 20, 2007, 12:14 PM
first off, i know that i am being too impatient, but i must make a rant. i preordered a voyager which may or may not be available to ship out tomorrow. if it does, i am told that i would not receive it until next week due to the holidays. i was also informed that the official stores will only receive around 5 phones per store (i played with it at circuit city. the official stores would not show me one, it was under lock and key). so my rant is this, why didn't the vz marketing exec's launch this phone out yesterday, monday? first off, the preorders would be shipped and possibly received tomorrow wednesday BEFORE the holidays. what a great marketing feat this would have been. to brag and show off this phone to friends and family and possi...

I've been concerned about the marketing as well. I've only seen one commercial and it hyped up the touch screen. But the benefit over the Iphone is that it has a touch screen AND a qwerty. I hope there is some more advertising scheduled...

we got more than 5 at our store

6? Laughing

Is it true that only 1000 have been sent to stores?

no that couldnt be true. VZW has over 1,000 stores (including agents) and they are getting more ten 1 each.

I agree that their timing for shipping this phone sucks, I think that they haven't marketed it nearly to it's full potential (heck, even the JUKE was more hyped up than this phone!) and I think that only sending 5 phones to each store is a poor decision as well. By doing that, they are just asking for customer complaints.

AND, for the record, I sell VZW Wink

I hadn't heard about the 5 phones per store, that just sounds crazy. But I worked in two different stores this weekend, and they let customers play with the phone.

I totally disagree with you on the point that the voyager is not the "ipod phone"

if you compare the features and functions of both the Voyager wins is nearly every catagory. the iPhone is a bit more sexy and the UI is more flashy but thats just dressing, on the inside the Voyager is packed with much more.

as for the release date, I agree it would of been good to release it on the 19th with the venus so that it arrived on weds but unfortunately thats now how it went. You pre-ordering it guarantees that you will get one without it being sold out so atleast you have that going for you.

When the voyager does arrive on Friday or Monday (could be either day id guess) you will be happy and agree it was worth the wait!

excuse all the typos and poor grammer I did not use spell check this time Confused

You are right - & I agree - The Iphone was turned down by VZW 3 yrs ago due to the known issues w/ tech support - Apple wanted to control it just like now & look @ all the class action suits - The Voyager should have been - avail for all the holidays this season & that begins w/ Thanksgiving - VZW could have started a tradition of the latest & greatest to be released the monday b4 every Thanksgiving in time for "Black" Friday every year

Every corporate store that I'm aware of received 20 Voyagers. Don't know where you pulled this magical 5 number from...
