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?

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

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...

MMS with Nokia 6600

I'm new at this site so please bear with me if my question seems redundant... I have a nokia 6600 which works great except for sending and receiving MMS. What I mean by this is that it doesn't work if I send it via t-zones(t-mobile)... it works fine via bluetooth... infrared also works but only as text... I've called t-mobile several times but was unsuccessful in resolving the problem... I've also talked to nokia but they don't seem to have the answer either, except for the nokia 6620 (US version of 6600)... If anyone out there has the same problem, and you've found the solution, please don't hesitate to share... I'd greatly appreciate all the info and help..

Thanks, in advance Smile

Don't respond to Emails, phone calls, or web pages which tell you to call
an "809" area Phone Number.

This is a very important issue of Scam Busters because it alerts you to a
scam that is spreading *extremely* quickly, can easily cost you $2400 or
more, and is difficult to avoid unless you are aware of it.

We'd like to thank Verizon for bringing this scam to our attention.

This scam has also been identified by the National Fraud Information
Center and is costing victims a lots of money.

There are lot of different permutations of this scam.


You will receive a message on your answering machine or your pager, which
asks you to call a number beginning with area cod...

4 Rules to Buying Cellular Service

Hi I am new here but I am a customer service rep for Verizon WIRELESS. I just thought I would Introduce myself be giving my personal 4 Rules to Buying Cellular Service.

They are in Priority and desending format.

upgrade programs through customer care for different company's

I've noticed that a lot of people discussing on these forums are customer service reps for different companies. I currently work for T-Mobile.

I'm interested in finding out how the upgrade programs work for other companies. This has always been one of the most frustrating parts of my job, as we've been hard stretched to compete with new activations through websites such as Even regular new activations without huge rebates can sometimes get the same or better deals than long term customers.

I know there are several factors involved. New activations often include rebates, which skew the actual cost of the phone when compared to the advertised price of the phone.

Are the upgrade programs for other companies simliar? Do th...

When Phonescoop (and manufacturers) list dimensions for length, does that include the external antenna? Or is it just for the body of the phone?

Sprint contracts

Speaking of waterproof phones, I wish my Samsung A400 were waterproof. It died when water filled up the pocket of my raincoat.

I went to Radio Shack and got a Samsung V1660. I didn't like it, so I returned it within a week. Even though I already had a 1-year contract with Sprint, I had to sign up for 2-years more to qualify for a rebate on the phone. Even though I returned the phone, the Sprint rep I talked to said I'm stuck with the 2-year contract, and will have to pay their $150 fee to get out of it.

Can I undo this, or am I really stuck with my 2-year contract?

AT&T Bidders

The newspapers say today that Vodafone is preparing to bid for AT&T. This should be interesting news for Verizon.
