If you want a Verizon E815, get it soon
For those who have not noticed, ALL of Verizon's non-PDA phones have been given this new standardized interface marked by red bars along the top and bottom of the screen, and oversimplistic text menus. The options to change skins, color themes, and even the shortcut keys has been taken away on the new interface. Some may favor this new ...
We may be seeing the E817 sooner than we think. Skyrocketing prices on Ebay may be coming as theses phones become hard to find in the coming months. Plus that dreaded Verizon UI may make more people jump ship to other carriers as there will be no phones left with the manufacturer interface.
Jump ship fron VZ cuz of the interface? Lol
Thats petty, the VZW UI is becoming a universal thing on VZW phones, get used to it. If you want to go to Cingular be my guest, have fun with the more bars in more places. 🙄
im a tech at vzw and i didnt like the ui at first but now that im used to it becauase i see it all day it isnt bad. if you dont the the verizon one you can always get the newer nokia that still is a nokie ui
The Verizon UI isn't half bad, you're right but that isn't the point. The point is that people want options. It is completely and utterly ridiculous that Verizon wants to put one stupid UI on every single phone.
If a Motorola and an LG have exactly the same features and are exactly the same price, people will then buy the phone which looks more attractive externally... and thats fine cause that is a factor. But it's kind of a blow to the manufacturers because the UI is a factor ...
No, it's utterly rediculous that every time someone gets a new phone, they have to learn a different ui even though their new phone does the exact same thing as their old phone. How many time do different manufacturers have to reinvent the wheel here? There's a contact book, and it holds contacts. We don't need 5 different ways to do contacts.
If people don't like the red bars on the interface, then they don't like it. If people don't like the limited customability of the interface (I'm not fond of it), then they don't like it. But I don't give a rats *** about whether the manufacturer can "differentiate" themselves with their new, ...
It's because normal people, unlike yourself, have a life and actually have better things to do than spending 10 hours a week playing with the ui on their cell phone!
(Where's that flamethrower smiley? We really need one for this "conversation")
There's no reason I, or anyone else, has to relearn an entirely new interface every time we get a new cell phone.
LOL what a fool. And speaking of relearning UIs, every computer should run Windows 3.1 because it's simple. Every TV should use the same remote. Every lamp needs the same watt bulb! And every beer needs a twist off lid (why should I have to learn how to use a bottleopener anyway!?)
OR it could be that normal people like using the same interface. They don't like learning a new interface. And programmers are the same way - they often only make software for windows because they don't want to have to rewrite their code for mac and linux. People use windows rather than linux, despite linux being free, more secure, and more reliable exactly because they don't want to have to learn a new interface.
Every TV should use the same damn remote. How many d...
I love how everyone is so selfish and think only of themselves!
You people really have such few worries in your life that your cellphone UI is this big of a concern?
If you want to complain about something try pollution, deforestation, education, taxes, anything as long as its actually important to how people live.
If you still live in the "im the only one that matters" box go get a job as a wireless agent for ANY carrier. Sell some phones. See how it is. Upgrades on people 40+ might get you phrases like "does this one operate similar to my old one? it took me xxx timespan to learn how to use it"
Needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.
