If you want this phone from Verizon and you are not a business you need to go to a Authorized Verizon Dealer and ask to have this phone ordered for you. If you want the SIM Card you have to have that ordered seperate as well. They havent released this phone in the stores yet but this is how they are releasing it to the public for now. The accessories are the same as the V710.
Well i finally think i figured out what Verizons problem is at least 1 of them. They like to BACKSTOCK! they have 3 warehouses backstocked of A840's and they have no room for any new phones thats whats holding up the release of new phones such as the e815 and the lg8100 so i am told they should start to be getting out these A840's by the end of the month which is close to the date of May 23 or 24 which is still a possibility but who knows with Verizon anymore i mean they have all 3 of their warehouses backstocked with this 1 phone!
Just talked to my Verizon rep who stated that Bluetooth is disabled because of agreements with their ringtone and other content providers. Apparently, they don't have bluetooth locked down tight enough to prevent copyrighted material transfer (e.g. ringtones). Even at $.99 for a damn ringtone, it's all about the allmighty dollar.
That said and very off-the-record, is there any way to modify the firmware with any officially or unofficially available software to enable the bluetooth functionality that exists in the hardware of this phone?
By the way, the rep. also mentioned that this phone might have "enough" bluetooth enabled to allow connection to headsets and car kits. He was checking on this.
I just was browsing the phone carriers and noticed that phonescoop has added the Motorola A840 Cell Phone to Verizons list of cell phones. I checked Verizons website they havent added it yet so it could be a error on phonescoops part or Verizon could be lagging again.
could i buy the a840 in, say, the UK, and then just live in the U.S. Or would i have to pay more for that? Thanks. Oh and one more thing. If you're not in business and you want to buy this phone, how do you go about doing that. Besides ebay. How much is it?
im really confused about the release of this phone. its exactly the same thing as the 710 except it doesnt do video cpture, no voice memos and no blue tooth. whats the point? the 710 was already brought down in price so its not like this has anything better to show! please someone explain.
hey guys, i was wondering what is better, buying from an actual shop, say verizon, or online? its my first time wanting to buy a "new" phone, so I want to get the best deal whether i get the a840 or the v710. thanks for your input!
