You're now back to claiming we are asking to get things for free. We've gone full circle, and are done.

1. I don't have a V710. Why would I buy a crippled phone? On other carriers I can get a full featured phone 2. You're talking about workarounds and other excuses. Verizon cripples the Mobile Office Kit (at least for Nokias) to disable transfers. I heard in newer firmware versions they were disabling some transfer features of the flash card on the V710. V710 does not have full OBEX car synchronization, just the slower, more limited version, so does not ...

I just want the usual Bluetooth features. Dial-up networking (paying whatever is the agreed upon Verizon cost for data, no we're not "cheap"), Car synchronization, File transfer for contacts, photos, rings (no not stolen, no not GIN-limited choices). We both know WHY Verizon disabled Bluetooth, to force GIN usage. But it's offensive to imply that we're cheap or thieves to want it. It's about the free-market choice to use our phone features. We have no problem paying Verizon for their ...

We would be glad to pay a premium for a Bluetooth phone, and don't give a damn about GIN apps. You can say it 64,000 times but you are trying to imply that anyone who wants Bluetooth is just being cheap or is a petty thief, which is incorrect.

85percent said: by the way. about the article... umm SOOO WHAT? it mentions that VZW has crippled bluetooth phones and people whine because they can't get something for free- it actually has to be payed for. boo hoo. old news. next? No, it CAN'T be paid for. Offer $10,000 to Verizon for a proper Bluetooth phone, you still won't get it. Get it? And it's old news here, but it's interesting that more mainstream news is picking up the story.

There's nothing wrong with not wanting to pay chipset royalties to Qualcomm. It creates a more competitive market. Nokia 5185, 3589i and 6015i have been very good on Verizon, from personal experience. Who else designs a CDMA chipset besides TI and Qualcomm, and what phones is it in? I'm not talking about the patent license, but the actual chip design. Hey, I made some money on QCOM stock, but don't romanticize this company.

Too bad

Using their own (or TIs) chipsets arguably gave Nokia a strategic advantage, and is perhaps why their CDMA phones work better than the rest of the Verizon lineup. A complete monoculture of Qualcomm chipsets can't be good for a healthy CDMA phone market.

pcrisp07 said: If Nokia or any other manufacturer for that matter would release a well built high end CDMA phone (High end meaning that it contains Bluetooth as well as a good camera and other features) I might consider switching to a CDMA carrier but by then Cingular will have HSDPA nationwide and it wont really matter. It's not up to Nokia. They have, for example, the 6255i that is a CDMA phone that has plenty of features including Bluetooth. Motorola ...

Nokia 6015i. Not a flip (but how hard is it to press Menu-*). Great RF, battery life, durability. And of course the simple, well designed Nokia user interface. Just a good solid phone without the gimmicks.

VZWVan said: If you honestly think that all the people who like their VZW phones are either employees or VZW stockholders, then youve got a PhD in denial my goofy friend. Strawman. We're discussing Verizon's phone selection, not whether some people like their phones (obviously many do). If you like fairly large flip phones, most from LG and Samsung, most with cameras, then sure you can have a Verizon phone you like. If you like smaller bar phones, bluetooth, or don't want a ...

It has nothing to do with free ringers. It has to do with a competitive market. Verizon could still try to compete and sell services. Your ISP lets you visit any website. They don't lock you into only websites they run. That doesn't mean you can't pay for certain web services from anyone, or that the ISP can't compete themselves for the services.

Albie said: Now the intereseting part is how does Verizon make the transition from their current mindset to providing the types of phones and buzz needed to market 3G and the accompanying services to boost revenues? The problem is they still have a fantasy of being the sole gatekeeper for any advanced services (GetItNow scam) in order to be able to charge monopoly prices to boost revenues. That's the real reason their phone selection sucks, so until they change their mindset, it ...

It's been answered repeatedly on several threads. But judging from the denial of Verizon reps, all the people complaining about phone selection are just ignorant. :roll:

Grantizzle said: audiovox used to be one of the biggest cell maker for verizon. kyocera is amde by qualcomm. qualcomm makes the CDMA chips for al CDMA phones except nokia. That probably why Nokia's phones are so good for CDMA reception compared to the others. Competitive advantage.

You're right, it is the FCC that mandates the form of (over-the-air) TV signals. However technically they are not mandating HDTV, just the use of a digital signal instead of analog. There are still SD (standard definition) formats defined for the digital TV signal, and smaller stations might use them to save money. However the main point of switching to digital is to have enough bandwidth for HDTV, so hopefully it will become more prevalent. But you could also use ...

Verizon's phone selection isn't bad, if you like large LG or Samsung clamshell style phones, most with a camera. Some of us prefer small Nokia bar style phones. The option of full features (bluetooth) instead of the Get It Now scam would be nice as well. For us, Verizon's phone selection is pathetic. The upcoming Nokia 6235i is close to what I'd like to see Verizon offer, though it does have a camera and no bluetooth. The 6255i looks interesting, but ...

Nonsense. Qualcomm didn't invent CDMA. They have certain patents, which in our system is unfortunately more a legal and political issue than a technical issue. Various implementations of the technology may or may not have various "quirks", but that has nothing to do with whether they use the oh-so-holy Qualcomm implementation. For myself, I have a Nokia 3589i and it performs superbly.
