Kinda like the law they made your phone number universal. Laughing

HP iPaq 6300???

Still looking for good PocketPC or Palm phone that isn't overbearing. Like the Treo600, but would rather have a PocketPC (big drawback is the lack of graffitti on Treo). Currently with Verizon and love their coverage (been loyal to them for 8 years). But, Sprint has a deal with my company and offer the Business Connection to my office's Exchange server.

Starting to hear rumors about an iPAQ63xx that will be coming post haste. Anyone have word on this???? And who will carry it?

Appreciate Verizon's thoroughness with testing phones, but there has to be a middle ground. They are so far behind on decent high-end phones...

Verizon Push to talk

Has any one heard when Verizon will be coming out with a new push to talk phone. I heard Verizon was tentative with a Samsung model. And possibly a Motorola, just curios on some makes and models as I am in the market for a new phone and have been patiently waiting on a new color push to talk phone from Verizon since early August.

TMobile Buyout

Ladies and Gentlemen,
I have just started joining in on these forums and I have seen multiple times stuff about TMobile merging with someone else...
Got news for ya...Ain't gonna happen.
Wanna know why? Deutcha Telecom (DT) has put a lot of time and money into making Tmobile a major player in the cell service market and unless they get a ton back for their investment then you can "fuggetaboutit." Since October of '02 to January of '04 we (yes I do work Tmobile) have jumped from 6 to over 13 million customers! Can you name me another carrier that has doubled it's consumer base? Didn't think so. With WLNP we have so far (percentage wise) gotten the most customers. Verizon got the most amount of customers in total but we got the most b...

camera phone for verizon

I am a Verizon customer, and I want to get the best camera phone that I can, and quickly. I hear that the LG600 is good, but I hear that Samsung is coming out with the scha790, and I probably want to get that. How can I find out when it will actually be in stores? Nobody can tell me. I can't wait too long...
Also, how do you compare manufacturer's claims of battery life? I have an old Mototola Startack, and it's life bears no relation to what the manufacturer specified...
