Get It Now subscription + changed/flashed phone

    What happens to those GIN subscriptions when one changes phone? Will those
    subscription fees carry on even if he doesn't actually have the
    applications?

    What about flashed phones?


    My phone of concern is LG 4400 v06.

    Yes... when I switched phones (exchanged a defective 3035), I was still
    charged a subscription for some crapplets I left behind on the old
    phone. I called VZW and they were able to cancel the subscriptions and
    give me a credit.

    Do you mean upgrading the firmware? I upgraded my 4400 from v6 to v10
    and all the apps and phonebook entries are still there, so I assume the
    subscriptions would still be in effect if I had any.

    Then there is the case of "unlimited" usage apps, where the application
    never expires and there are no further charges. I am assuming that when
    you upgrade your phone, you just lose those applications; if getting a
    warranty replacement, I think you can talk CS into refunding the cost
    of re-purchasing such applications, but I am not sure.

    Firmware upgrades are not supposed to lose the apps (no problem when
    I got updates on my T720); if they do, then you definitely have a case
    for an adjustment.

    I had this happen to a handset I sold but had removed the apps first. I kept
    getting charged and it took 4 months to fix and get refunds. Seems it took a
    very smart tech to understand how to kill it.

    Note the new owner downloaded new apps that I was getting billed for in
    addition to ones I used and removed. Very frustrating after getting told
    each month the problem was fixed only to see recurring charges on the next
    month's bill.
