verizonccemp said:All verizon literature states that the phone implements "Bluetooth". "Bluetooth" is "Bluetooth". IT IS A STANDARD. I would not expect to buy a car and find out that it runs on gasoline but in the fine print it says it only uses a nozzle that a specific gas station can provide.
When Verizon made a change to the specification, it is no longer Bluetooth. PERIOD. Why did they make the change? TO BILK THEIR CUSTOMERS BY CHARGING FOR SERVICES THAT THE PHONE WAS ALREADY ABLE TO PROVIDE. THAT my friend is the definition of fraud.

If you really have an appointment to meet with your high profile lawyers then you have wasted your time and money...Here is what bluetooth is according to this website...

Bluetooth is a short-range wireless technology used to create PANs (Personal Area Networks) among your devices, and with other nearby devices.

Bluetooth allows you to leave your phone in your pocket, while talking on your phone with a Bluetooth headset - with no wires. You can also exchange contact or scheduling information with other Bluetooth-enabled phones nearby, or send such information to a nearby Bluetooth-enabled printer.

Another common use is to give your laptop computer or PDA wireless high-speed Internet access via Bluetooth and your phone.

Many newer automobiles also have Bluetooth, which can interface with a phone in a pocket, to allow automatic hands-free phone capability.

More innovative uses include playing a game against someone with a similar phone nearby, or using a special Bluetooth pen to send SMS messages by simply writing them on paper.

Blueooth functionality is divided into seperate types of connections known as "profiles". Each of the various scenarios outlined above involve a different profile. Not all Bluetooth devices support all profiles.

For example, a Bluetooth headset might only support the Headset profile, while others might support both Headset and the similar Handsfree profile, for increased compatibility. Similarly, a phone might only support the Handsfree profile, and not the Headset profile, while other phones might support both.

You would lose that court case hands down. The OBEX is simply a profile that has been disabled. Bluetooth is simply the wireless connection made with other BT enabled devices. It never says that it HAS to have all profile enabled. Besides didnt you realize this within 15 days of having your phone? Why didn't you just return it? And of course VZW/Moto isnt going to advertise it. But its not false advertising because it is bluetooth. So everyone save your time, money, and space on this forum to keep talking about class action suits and complaining. Nothing is going to happen so get over it. You'll get your camera fixed thats it. And also...the phone can do everything that a regular bluetooth phone can do except for talking to other phones. But with the transflash card you can transfer files to and from the stop wasting the money on the lawyers and get yourself a F card... Shocked
