Verizon Wireless earlier this month reached a settlement in the class action suit brought against it by V710 owners. Subscribers who purchased V710s have 4 options to choose from before December 9, 2005. They can keep their V710 and receive a $25 credit from Verizon. They can return their V710 and all accessories for a full refund but keep their service. They can also return the phone for a refund and break the service agreement without a termination charge. Additionally, users who are satisfied with their handset can opt out of the class.

VZW still thinks its 1980 and it is Ma Bell
Don't like it? Don't complain, just put your money elsewhere.
Remember when you couldn’t actually OWN a telephone (land line); you could only RENT one from them? and Extra Extensions were ILLEGAL? The apple does not fall far from the tree.
No. How old would on...
VZW should have been given a multi-million or even a billion dollar fine for its repeated abuse of its customers through deceptive marketing and outright lies.
First of all, your constant references...

Good Customer Service...Bad Customers.
Does anyone read return policies anymore, read a user manual, or do some basic research on what they buy any more?
I bought a Motorola 710 from Verizon when it first came out about a year ago. I had a basic understanding of what bluetooth was, but what the selling point to me on the phone was, that it allowed me to use a handsfree headset without wires. I plan on keeping my phone and not cancelling like many people will do. So, for those of you who feel you have been duped by your own ignorance, or even poor consumership...go ahead and cancel, get a credit...and move on.
346 PAGES of posts and most have to do with how the bluetooth is crippled and the lawsuit.

Clarification question about the settlement
"2. I activated Verizon Wireless Cellular Service for a Motorola V710 cellular telephone on or before January 31, 2005; and"
Does this mean new activation or does it include equipment changeovers? I had Verizon before this but switched phones over to the V710. I read the settlement document and it contains similar verbage so I'm not sure.
But yes, as I take it, upgrades should be covered as well provided that you renevewed your agreement and signed a contract.
Blown Out of Porportion
There are return policies which allow you to return the phone if you don't like it. So why didn't these people return it? Verizon didn't lie about it ... it has Bluetooth! I didn't see anywhere they advertised you can do file transfers and such with it.
I wish they hadn't locked it down like they did, but they didn't do anything illegal ... people just d...
That's what really hurt... also why be so greedy as to lock down a phone? Is the negative publicity and crippling your...
