Does the A890 Picture ID show on the front display

I like many others are debating purchasing of the 3 new verizon phones. i just read the audiovox 8940 picture id does not display on the outside screen of phone so i have decided not to bother. The Lg vx 8000 shows the picture on the inside and out side screen when the phone rings but the phone seems very large for me and it doesnt have the new voice recognition technology so i have decided on the samsung A890. I know the new samsung A890 has picture ID but can anyone out there tell me if when the phone rings the Picture ID displays on the outside screen as well as the internal screen? Thanks for the help...

Bluetooth on Samsung

Samsung is usually on top of things, but they still have not acquired bluetooth on their phones. I know that CDMA phones don't have bluetooth (excluding Motorola v710), but Samsung GSM phones should have it right? Why or why not?

I'm sorry for saying this, but doesn't this phone look kind of ugly? Well it's kind of my opinion but it anyone tell thinks this just comment because last time I said that the vx8000 was ugly everyone spazzed out on me.

No Reviews On This Phone??

There are no reviews on this phone. It seems most people are choosing the other two because of the speaker capability. I find it interesting (stupid) that the 890 has an outside speaker to play V-cast only. The 8940 is actually smaller than the 890 which is only slightly smaller than the 8000. I currently own the 8000 but due to the low earpiece volume and large size, I am going to verizon to do a more thorough inspection. I would like having the independent voice recognition, something not featured in the 8000 or the 8940. Does anyone who owns this phone have a good review for it?

Samsung A890 problems out of the box

Just bought the Samsung this morning. Didn't realize that it had no speakerphone, stupid me, bad assumption on my part. For the price you would think it would include a common feature like a speakerphone.

So I get home and the phone battery is almost dead which is to be expected. I attach the charger and the phone won't charge. I call the Verizon store and they are so surprised and asking me, do you have it in the charger correctly, blah blah blah. Bottom line is the phone seems ok but I am now suspect of the quality. I was looking at the new Audiovox first and the sales rep tells me that he doesn't think Audiovox makes a good phone and that the Samsung is the better model to take. The LG is just too big for me. I like my Verizon ...

stop don't buy!!!!!!

I just came back from the verizon store. When I asked them if there is a data cable and software program so i could back up my contacts, like i have had on all my other phones they said NO! None of the three new EVDO phone will allow this. This is there is no way to back up your contacts and no way to use the phone as a modem! I have over 300 contacts and if i can't back up my phone for get it. Verizon sucks! Verizon has a service that you have to pay for every month to back up your contacts over the their get it now network. It costs, I think 4$ a month. Crooks.
If I am wrong please corect me, because i really want one of these new phones.

Review of Verizon's VCAST service and other 2 phones offered

December 16, 2004; Page B1

The most important development this year in U.S. wireless communications wasn't the headline-grabbing mergers of various wireless carriers. It was the quiet, gradual rollout by Verizon Wireless of a technology called EV-DO, which for the first time is providing broadband-speed Internet access over the air from anywhere in the cities where it has been deployed.

This new Verizon network, which the company calls "BroadbandAccess," promises users in 18 cities so far that they can get on the Internet at typical speeds of between 300 and 500 kilobits a second. That's the equivalent of w...

What happened to T-Mobile?

It seems as if LG and Samsung are dealing with Cingular and Sprint users' needs but not anyone affiliated with T-Mobile.

Am I wrong Rich Brome?

I would like to see a megapixel phone with video capture for T-Mobile.
Is there anything coming out like that for T-Mobile?
