I was just talking to a verizon rep. (4-30-04). She told me that the phonewill be out in december and that verizon will be introducing brand NEW plan. Just like nextel. the in network will be changed to PTT network and the plans will be the same (39.99) 400 mins unlim N+W, unlim PTT. Also the v60p is the reason for the 8sec delay its not verizon. With the A690 there will be a .3 sec delay (better than Nextel). 😁

samsung SCH-A690 is discontiniued

This phone will not be released at all cause it failed all the testing. Next phone for verizon will be motorolla bar phone you can check it out under phones motorolla. Bad news guys, and guess what you probably heard of Sprint walkie talkie feature which is much better and they have now already 5 phones in stock for push to talk. Sprint came out with that feature only like 4 months ago and see how many phones they have already. So guys if verizon would want another push to talk phone they would already get one. They just dont need one since their push to talk having problems anyway. Dont wait for another phone like at least for 6 months more which will be motorolla model bar phone, colorless.Good luck all.

FYI, the PTT is being relaunched with full extent May 1st, so my DEDUCTION is that it will be released very soon after.

690 must be REALLY close, read this

I was doing an online esn change with my V60s to my a530 and after I put my esn in it will ask me what phone model it is. The 670 and the 690 are choices now!!!! So our wait may be coming to an end shortly.

New Info For You All (Not so good)

Just some info for you all who are waiting on this phone. I was talking to my VZW source a month ago and he was raving about how this phone was coming along so well. Sorry guys, it hit a major speedbump. I was talking again to my source, and he said that the speakerphone on it was not nearly as loud and they want it, and they are frantically trying to fix it.

He said this: The order of likely phones out will be the Slider (out now) v810, VX7000, 9900, A670, *A690*, A790, VX8000
