Selling slightly used cellphones...

Is there a place or forum to sell your unwanted cellphones, that are no longer being used because you left for another carrier? - Any help would be great.

Samsung i600

This phone gets alot of bad press, but I still interested. A couple of questions:

Has the caller ID bug been worked out?

Does the '04 version have the '03 OS?

Will the Blackberry agreement effect this phone or is it set just for future Samsung phones?

This Just IN!!!!!

For those of you who think that Verizon doesn't have enough picture phones.. well be prepared for the 1st 1.2 Megapixel CDMA Trimode Swival phone with BREW and MMS. The Kyrocera K20 (Temp Name I think) was shown to me a week ago by a Kyrocera rep... This will be a Verizon Wireless Exlusive offer... when I swivel think Motoral V70 phone. However... This phone is sweet.. I didn't think i would like a swivel phone... but this has changed my mind... AND it does have a flash and 1.2 Megapixel camera... Not only that but the lens and flash are protected by a sliding door so that you can keep it clean and avoid placing you fingers on the lens... Very nice design.

Cheers.... Very Happy

If you had two things to say about every wireless carrier....

T-Mobile: Cheap Plans, Best GSM North Am Coverage.
Verizon: Most? Coverage, Higest Rates.
Cingular: Who has it?, Rollover Minutes.
ATT Wireless: Bad Cust Care, Horrible GSM.
Nextel: Push to Talk, High Taxes.
Sprint PCS: Bad Service, High Bills.

FCC complaints

Just wondering if anyone saw the Wall Street Journal today? They had an article about the number of complaints filed with the FCC against cellular phone companies. VZW had the lowest along of complaints filed only 1.5 for every 100,000 customers.

One-Touch Mute Phones?

I have an Earglove Pro headset with a one-touch button for answer/end and mute. I want to use the mute function but it doesn't work with my VX10. Anyone know of a Verizon phone would work with this feature? The docs say it will work with some phones but I can't find any other info about which ones. BTW, I love this tiny headset (17 g) with a built-in mic that wraps around the top of your ear very nicely and securely. Sometimes I forget that it is even in. It looked stupid in the store and I didn't know if anyone would be able to hear me with this weird mic location but everyone has been able to hear me quite well - even better than many of the other headsets I have gone through before finding this one.

Picture mail question

If I had T-mobile's picture messaging service and I bought an unlocked camera phone that isn't programmed for T-mobile can I still use picture mail. For example if I tried to use an unlocked Siemens S56/S55 on T-mobile could I send a picture message to an email address?

Verizon - PDA Phones


Does anyone know of any new PDA phones being introduced for the Verizon network? I would like a flip phone/pda but the only one they currently sell sucks. They pulled the Kyocera 7135 which apparently also sucked. Please help.

Moving out of town-Charges or fees?

My contract is up with Cingular and I'm thinking about a new contract to get a new and better phone. I may be relocating to another city in the next 3 to 4 months and would like to hear from other what fees or problems they've had with other carriers.

Cingular says no problem if I sign the new contract and want to move later, just pay a new setup fee if I move to an area where they have coverage.

Any other carriers that have caused you problems?
