Beware! Verizon has disabled features that you may expect.

by Brancieri    Nov 26, 2008, 4:02 AM

The phone is excellent and comes from HTC with great features. However; Verizon has disabled the GPS and the FM radio. I'm waiting for confirmation from HTC, but according to their website and the user's manual, it has an internal GPS receiver and FM receiver. But, Verizon has crippled these features. I can only assume it is to force people to use Verizon applications, which are not free, for similar features. No other cellular carrier treats it's customer's like idiots and takes advantage of them like Verizon. Once this is confirmed, I will return the phone and most likely switch carriers. I will seek professional advice because this is very unfair.
