Merry Christmas to all.

in the Verizon Wireless forum

Just wanted to say Merry Christmas to all, work is now blocked so I haven't been able to view the witty banter on the scoop for a while. Not that any of you will care but that is OK.

It's a game from a movie called super troopers where they substitute "meow" for "now" when they are talking. Kind of an inside joke between the troopers. The people they pull over are trying to figure out why the troopers are saying "meow" and the troopers are acting like they are not saying it.

OK, I guess I can accept that it was just a strange website, and what made her so sure I hadn't been there before.

AOL will not push. You have to set it up to check every 15, 30 min, 1 hour etc.

purple.com? WTF? over
Aug 17, 2006, 5:39 PM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

Ok, I have to ask. I'm on the phone with VZW tech support and in the middle of trying to fix my e-mail problem the girl says try to go to purple.com. A minute later she says try to send another e-mail and gets back to working on my problem. No further reference to purple.com or anything. It's like she never said it. So about ten minutes later as we are waiting for ...

Re: it was a mistake
Aug 10, 2006, 5:50 PM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

There was an e-mail that went out among many of our military bases, it basically told people to quote that act. I think that someone was trying to make something up to look like a good guy and combined two different subjects. The privacy act of 1974 was probably where the date came from as it is on most of our daily correspondence. The Telecommunications Act, 47 U.S.C. 222, is a federal law that addresses consumer concerns on phone solicitation and ...

Re: Ease up Plook

Come on Plook, the intent of my post was to point out that the media was once again caught manipulating a story to make it fit their agenda. I really wasn't trying to say anything about who had or had not given information to the NSA, which I don't see a problem with anyway.

USA Today changing story?
Jun 30, 2006, 1:21 PM
in the General forum

USA Today acknowledged in a "note to our readers" Friday that it could not establish that BellSouth or Verizon contracted with the National Security Agency to provide it with customer calling records, as it previously reported. But spokesman Steve Anderson said "this is an important story that holds up well. At the heart of our report is the fact that NSA is collecting phone call records of millions of Americans." "What we address in the editors' note," he said, ...

Re: Hey Gray one more thing.
Jun 27, 2006, 6:35 PM
in the Motorola Q forum

Roger that, I only need my future appointments to show for the next week or so. I don't need task or meeting details. The old mind still works well enough that if I can see that I have a meeting on next Thursday I can remember what is is about. I just didn't like the fact that on the original programs that came with the Q it only showed the next days appointments. I think I will keep FACADE and ...

Hey Gray, I am trying out both FACADE and PAPYRUS. Is there a bonus to having both. If the regular outlook calendar will work and I can use FACADE to show an expanded listing of appointments, which is what I wanted, is there a reason to buy PAPYRUS also? One again mahalo for your time and input.

I was hoping for a simple setting on the phone. I haven't added any aftermarket software yet. Mahalo for your input.

Does anyone know how to make your upcoming appointments show for further out on your home screen. I want to have appointments for the week listed not just for the day. I hate looking at the screen and seeing no upcoming appointments even though I have many listed for the week. Mahalo

kgray said: Does this also hold true for the Car Charger? I couldn't tell you about that. I am in my car about ten minutes a day so I have no need for a car charger. The web site says it charges to 90% capacity in two to three hours so at least that is better than the travel charger. I wouldn't buy it unless it was at least 700mA. The next time you are in a ...

Hey guy's just some advice, take it or leave it. Don't waste your money on the travel charger VZW is trying to push for the Q. It is the old V3C charger and it only has an output of 550mA. If you are going to buy another charger make sure it is the one that is supposed to be used with the Q and is rated at 850mA. I had mine plugged in to the "travel" charger for ...

it works great it takes about two minutes to set up. After that it's really easy to use. I'm using mine now and I just flipped to AOL to check my mail to see how long it would take. It took less than minute.

Re: Top Status Bar Disappearing on Homescreen
Jun 16, 2006, 3:16 PM
in the Motorola Q forum

I'm guessing you just never noticed it. If you scroll down it disappears to show the bottom of the screen, just scroll back up to make it reappear. You can try one of the other screens under the home screen setting to see if they are more to your liking.

Re: OK I'm looking at both of them and they are not the same.
Jun 13, 2006, 12:59 PM
in the Motorola Q forum

The question I am addressing is the difference in out put 550mA versus 850mA. I don't want to damage the circuitry in the Q. Saying it's universal doesn't mean that because it fits you should plug it in.

geodillon said: The Q uses the same charger as the Razr. OK, the charger that came with my V3C has a different model number than the Q charger, it is smaller than the one that came with the Q and it has an out put of 550mA where as the one that came with the Q has an output of 850mA. They are definitely NOT the same charger.

Charger
Jun 12, 2006, 3:26 PM
in the Motorola Q forum

I ordered a Q charger from a VZW business rep and I was shipped a V3C charger. The voltage output is not the same as the Q charger so I am worried about using it. Has anyone else been told that any charger will work as long as it fits the Q.

Is insurance worth it?
Jun 7, 2006, 5:08 PM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

I have never had insurance on any of my VZW phones but I am considering getting it on my Q because it doesn't feel like it would survive a drop. Have any of you had dealings with replacing a phone? In other words if I drop my phone and break it, do they make it difficult/impossible to get a new one? I assume you would get a refurb but from what I read they don't guarantee that you ...

Anyone having this problem?

I have noticed that after I use the web the data transfer signal (the two arrows) stay on the screen like the Q is still transferring data. This happens even after I kill the program. I have to make a call then hang up to get the arrows to go away. Has anyone else noticed this? Also AOL keeps opening on my Q under running programs. I will go in and kill it and then ...

where is the antenna/
Jun 6, 2006, 6:59 PM
in the Motorola Q forum

Does anyone know where the antenna is on this phone? I can't think of a good place for it to be. My hand covers most of the phone when I use it so I am sure I am blocking it. The signal strength isn't as good as my razor and I thought I might be able to improve it if I moved my hand around.

Re: according to customer service they aren't going to sell the phones for another couple of weeks

in the Motorola Q forum

I called in and asked about the problems with buying on the website. The story according to "Paul" "Sir I don't know what you are seeing on the website but we aren't going to be selling that phone for weeks" "it is not available to anyone at this time". This was an hour ago. Are the phone answerers that far out of the loop or is it just a line of BS.
