    Well Larry, If I had to guess, the reason they do this is to better manage
    and categorize emails. If they were to publish a national email address
    such as verizonwirelesssupport@verizonwireless.com or something to the like,
    this email address would be innundated with spam. If taking the time to go
    to their website and selecting a specific category so the right department
    gets it is to difficult, maybe calling *611 would be better? Not to mention
    under the exisiting system when they read your email, they are able to view
    you account info simultaneously so they would be able to recall past
    problems, issues, etc. Not to mention, every vengeful or disgruntled person
    would sign that particular email address up to dozens of mailing lists, etc.
    BTW, did you ever get an answer from support@cox.net or abuse@cox.net? LMAO

    But does it ring and vibe at the same time like he wants, or just vibe for
    a few seconds, then ring and not vibe like the 4400? Also called high and
    vib on the 4400

    Was this a form for AT&T? I did my port with Verizon, and it was all
    electronically. Perhaps the dealer or AT&T is covering their ass?

    mailto:customer.service@verizonwireless.com -- that's the reply to address
    in the confirmation to or response from "e-mail" sent via the web interface.
    I have used this address in the past and received responses, so it is valid.

    As were my Nokia 3390, Ericsson T18z, and a Motorola StarTAC 7868.

    So, it's not that you really want to email them, you just want to make a
    point.

    The Panasonic does not have a vibrating battery, just a great design.

    No, It's just that I'd like to be able to email them DETAILED
    problems, for which I'd expect a reply like any customer should get,
    not some canned webpage nonsense which probably results in a canned
    line in some computer printout.

    What's wrong with personal service? Other companies I deal with have
    human service. Is that too much to expect from a company for
    $600/year, every year?

    Instead of taking up my time trying to get hold of 611, through the
    maze of idiotic touchtone codes and taking THEIR time trying to
    explain to someone who has no idea what a cell sector is or how it
    functions that this certain cell is dead and needs a technician to fix
    it.....I'd simply send them an email they could pass to the proper
    person who DID know something about cellular phone infrastructure who
    COULD pass it DIRECTLY on to the email of the technician who is going
    out to the tower.....instead of him getting 6th-hand information that
    has no relationship to the problem I'm reporting.

    HOLY COW! He might even want to email me for CLARIFICATION of what
    I'm seeing on my phone! What a concept!!

    But not ports TO AT&T stalled by AT&T, I'll bet. Only Verizon could
    be that inept.
