Treo 600 GSM, used on Verizon?

Since Verizon's PDA phones are worthless, could I purchase the Treo 600 GSM and use it on Verizon's network?
Also, does anyone have any insight on the Treo? There are a few guys in my company that have them and love them, but they aren't very advanced in technology so I don't know how much I trust their opinion.
Thanks

VX4500 glitch found...

Confused

I just received my new VX4500 on January 31, 2004. It's an amazing phone, and I've been very happy with it thus far. However, I think I've found a glitch in it's programming.

If I am talking on the phone and it's noisy around me I use the volume control on the side of the phone to temporarily raise or lower the volume. But if I do this, the volume only stays raised (or lowered) for about 4 seconds, and then it bumps down to the volume level set by default in the settings menu. It will NOT stay at the volume you set by the side control for more than a few seconds!

I went by the Verizon store and showed it to the tech people. Einstein there fiddled with it for a few minutes and finally says: "that's one of the phones features...

moblie units

I live in rural Alaska and operate a small towing company. We have these great mobile units in all of our vehicles; they are Oki phones with a cradle that is connected to a 3 watt booster, a charging system, a speaker, microphone, handset, and external antenna. The only problem is that the phones are analog and it is now to the point that they do not work very well in the urban area that we serve. We occasionally run the business from a vehicle and need to not miss ANY incoming calls.

We need to replace the analog phones with digital, BUT we are not willing to give up the great analog service in our rural area and the convenience of clicking the phone into the cradle and not have to hook up different connections.

Where can I find a c...

Attn: Rich Brome

Hello my friend, as a relative newcomer, first of all let me say way to go on this site. It has been a wonderful asset to me. My problem is that when I click on certain links (most recently the Audiovox 9500 description page) I get redirected immediately to a site called popnav.com. Is this a site sponsered advertisement? I can't seem to avoid it, and I can't actually keep the browser on the page that I want to see. Is this possibly something on my computer? Thanks.

WAP site list?

Does anybody know if there is a list of wap sites for wap enabled cell phones? I have checked the internet and have not been able to find any from a standard google and ms search. As you may know, it is hard to find wap sites by trial and error. Thank you.

Getting pix from phone to PC?

My Cing. contract is up and I'm looking for a new phone. One of the features I want is the video camera to send pictures to clients.

I'm considering the Moto V400, but I can't determine how you get the pix from the phone to a PC. I don't want to pay for service to Email the pix, I just want to get them into Outlook so I can send a group mail.

Do most cameras have a data cable port, or infrared, or some other means to grab the pix?

Ant other phones I should consider?

Thanks!

Verizon 2 year contract

I am currently in a 2 year contract with Verizon that doesn't expire until well into 2005. I re-signed w/ them when I purchased their PTT plan. After about 6 months of the service I am disgusted with it. The delays, the set-up times, the dropped calls when using PTT (making regular phone calls is fine, no dropped calls). Now I would like to go to Nextel. Everyone I know who has it, loves it. The problem is there is a $175 early cancellation fee w/ Verizon. Does anybody know if there is a way out of the contract w/o having to pay that fee or does Nextel offer any sort of promotion where they would compensate you for changing over to their service (i.e. giving you a rebate or paying for your cancellation fee)? Thanks.

cellular phone manufacturing

Hi all,

I'm not sure if this is the proper forum for my inquiries, but from reading the posts here, everyone seems extremely helpful and friendly.

To the point, I just wanted to find out if any one here is interested in creating/designing and manufacturing their own cellular phones? Essentially, I would design and manufacture the phone to your specifications/needs.

If you or anyone you know might have an interest in manufacturing design specific phones, please reply or email me at mybtsocket@aol.com


Once again, I apologize if this is the wrong forum to post, and if any rules were broken it was unintentional.

Thank you.

Problems with Sprint Connection

I have 2 phones/service plans and cannot use them at home. I live in the outskirts of Raleigh, NC. I had Sprint a couple years back and there was a known hole where I live, so I dumped the service in favor of Alltel. Alltel was no better so I came back a year ago because (according to their charts of my area) I would get full coverage (known hole was filled in). I have no problem with the service in town. I work downtown inside a block building and get excellent coverage. At home, inside a wooden structure with plenty of windows, I get marginal at best service. I loose calls if I go into another room. I have called customer service which in turn gives me to tech support that puts in a Trouble Report. I have done this maybe 9 times in the las...
