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.

Center and is costing victims a lots of money.
There are lot of different permutations of this scam.

4 Rules to Buying Cellular Service

upgrade programs through customer care for different company's
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 amazon.com. Even regular new activations without huge rebates can sometimes get the same or better deals than long term customers.

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?
Does anyone make a waterproof phone?
Does anyone make a phone that does not fail when it gets wet?

Motorola V600 or Panasonic X70
Should I buy the Panasonic X70 now or wait for the Motorola V600 to eventually come to T-Mobile (or just wait for the unlocked version's price to go down later this year)?
I just bought the Nextel I730, and seem pretty happy so far. - But, can anyone tell me if there is a way to set the speaker volume independent of each other? - What I am trying to explain is this: - Say you set the speaker volume @ 3 or 4 as a result your earpiece volume is at that same level. - So if you raise up your earpiece voulme to a higher number - It also is raising your speaker volume. - Does anyone understand what I am getting at?? - Please respond!!! - I am experienceing a constant having to lower and raise the volume depending if I am using the phone or the speaker for direct connect. - Any suggestions???? - Thanks...
