I had AT&T for close to 10 years. I remember when they were Cellular One in my area, and then Cingular, and then “The new AT&T”. I had always been reasonably happy with them and the service they provided…but in the interest of saving money (and since my fiancee made it very clear that nothing would tear her from Verizon),Read more
As smartphones continue to be used in business, the challenge companies most often face is how to ensure security policies are implemented on employee mobile devices — and that they work with Microsoft Exchange to deliver your corporate email. Sure, not every single business out there uses Exchange for their enterprise mail delivery — but most large companies do. TheRead more
Its that time of year for folks to go goo-goo over new tech toys, and especially new phones. But be careful that your purchase doesn’t bite you back.
Verizon has kept to its word and raised their early termination fees from $175 to $350.
The ETF will apply to advanced devices, Advanced devices are smartphones, but also devices that have
The latest Verizon attack ad on the iPhone takes a new tact… rather than attack the iPhone it actually well… it actually puts out the welcome mat.
In it the Island of Misfit Toys welcomes its newest resident… the iPhone.
“Hey check out the new guy” says one misfit toy.
“What are you doing here? You can download apps and
Full disclosure. I haven’t touched a Droid yet. I have an iPod Touch and use a Palm Pre as my everyday device.
Here is my humble opinion.
The Motorola Droid will sell well. Not awesome, but well. There is a lot of pent up demand from those locked into Verizon who wanted a serious smart phone, and they definitely get
To say the DROID’s release is highly anticipated would be an understatement. Marketing has gone into overdrive for this handset, making us wonder why there’s no big love for the Eris (yes, they’ll appeal to different users — and the Eris is running Android 1.5, at least for now, but the Eris looks just as capable for anyone who prefersRead more
How often do you hear a phone from Verizon getting play on local media? The Droid is definitely getting that here in Columbus, Ohio. WBNS 10 TV is running a story about it on their site. I find it a little interesting that they say the Droid has thousands of applications, while ignoring the fact that it is actually running
Billshrink.com just did an analysis comparing the iPhone 3GS on AT&T, the Palm Pre on Sprint, and Motorola Droid on Verizon.
If you are looking at an unlimited voice and data plan, you will spend $1,250 less over two years. There are still substantial savings even with more limited plans. The phones, on paper, have fairly similar specifications and capabilities
It’s certainly one of the more anticipated and definitely one of the more hyped up phones this fall season. Details have been released and the Motorola Droid is officially coming to Verizon Wireless on November 6th.
The newest Android Phone and what will be Verizon Wireless’s first, will sell for a contract price of $199.
The phone is jammed packed
Last night, Verizon started airing an ad on major TV networks with a new campaign, iDon’t, for the announcement of the new Verizon Droid. The Verizon Droid is a highly anticipated Android device, rumored to be manufactured by Motorola and code-named as Sholes/Tao.Read more
I was reading through my feeds this morning, and I came across posts on talkandroid.com and Phone Arena regarding Verizon’s Third Android handset. This hand set, according to Unstrung.com, will be available in early 2010 and will include a surprising new feature. That feature is full MiFi support built into the phone. This is a shock, to me, coming
With recent announcements by both Sprint and T-Mobile that they were offering the new HTC Touch Pro 2, it was only a matter of time before Verizon Wireless jumped into the fray! And today we got that news, with Verison announcing the HTC Touch Pro 2 available to order on Friday September 11th online and in stores.
The device is
In celebration of the overwhelming success of the Slacker Radio mobile application, Slacker is giving away free BlackBerry Curve smartphones to listeners.
All the major carriers are available (Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile) and every one of them offers a Blackberry Curve smartphone in the handset lineup.
Each rate plan differs from carrier to carrier but the phone is free
Verizon Wireless has their BlackBerry 8230 flip available through the new Amazonwireless store for free (with 2 year contract) and the best part is you don’t need any rebate to get this price. The flip BlackBerry was a surprise favorite when I tested the T-Mobile version back in March. Sure, the phone has a problem with lagging as youRead more
I sat down in my “chair” tonight and flipped on the TV.
Verizon Fios, to which I’m subscribed to for TV, internet and phone service, greeted me with a message that informed my I could now get Twitter & Facebook on my television.
As if I needed another excuse not to get up from my “chair.” Watch my video to
The Motorola Rival A455 is one of the newest phones to be added to the Verizon Wireless handset lineup.
This messaging workhorse gives you instant access to IM style texting, emoticons, a slide out keyboard, and an on screen touch pad right out of the box.
I had the opportunity to use the A455 over the last two weeks, and
I believe the future of Broadband cards will arrive in the form factor of this Verizon Novatel MiFi 2200. Rather than limit you to only one wireless connection, the MiFi creates a Wi-Fi hotspot that supports up to 5 simultaneous connections. You’ll still deal with the same monthly bandwidth caps (5GB on Verizon) so you best be choosy about whoRead more
Thinking about buying a BlackBerry Storm? My sister Lynn recently traded in her BlackBerry Pearl for a Storm. I asked if she’d give her un-filtered feedback for those of our readers who might be in a similar situation:
Well, after much deliberation, I decided to give the Storm a try. I have had the Pearl for almost a year and
Several BlackBerry Storm owners on Howardforums are reporting that they’ve recently received a text message from Verizon offering a free BlackBerry of their choosing provided that they open another line of service on their account. This promotion is apparently some type of subset of the “buy one get one free” offer that Verizon has been running. Under this new promotionRead more
Verizon Wireless subscribers on a plan over $60 per month will now be able to select up to 5 phone numbers that are completely free to call no matter what carrier they use (and receive calls from). Unbelievably, this feature will be a free add-on to all qualifying accounts. If the subscriber is on a family plan priced $90 orRead more
Hey was that you complaining that Verizon’s site is all out of BlackBerry Curves? You don’t seriously still shop at a carrier’s site, do you? I’m going to let you on a little secret – just don’t tell anyone, ok?
The WORST place to shop is at the carrier’s store – either online or bricks and mortar. The stores are
We all know that Apple changed the game when it came to cell phones. The iPhone’s interface is second to none currently; everyone and their brother is now trying to out do Apple. Motorola has come up with a really interesting take on a touchscreen interface that has a lot of influence from Verizon.
As you’ve seen in my Verizon Centro Review, my normal personal cellphone is a Green enV on Verizon Wireless. I love my phone, however, the external LCD has started to fade on it.
So, off I go to the Verizon store expecting to walkout with a replacement phone. What I got was a piece of paper.
