NJ verizon users need blue tooth, driving cell phone ban July first.

    NJ will join NY in the ban against hand held cell phone while driving on July
    first.
    I want to use a bluetooth cord free headset, I have tried and don't like the
    ones with wires. Last I heard that the release of the Motorola 710 bluetooth
    capable phone was between "doubtful" and early fall. The hands free
    requirement starts July first. Anyway Verizon can get its act together and get
    this phone out there for us to use in NJ and NY which I would guess is a BIG
    market for them?

    If it doesn't happen consider a speakerphone. I recently got a vx4500 and
    the speakerphone works well with most people reporting they didn't know I
    was using one. It also has a voice command system that works well.

    I didn't know about the NJ ban but it is a good heads up because I am in
    NJ/NY at least once a month.

    The fine is supposed to be a stiff $250.00
    But it is a secondary offense, supposedly they can't pull you over for the cell
    phone use, but when they pull you over for anything else, they can add the cell
    phone use charge. And when ever was a cop at a loss for a reason to pull
    someone over? I can hear the screaming already.
     
  4. Hahahahahahaha, you are too funny. You really need to check out my previous
    posts and see my complaining and bitching about how Verizon's phone
    selection is the worst out of all cell phone companies. I've posted that
    stuff for over a year now and all I get is, "I can make a call though".
    Well, the times will change and are slowly. NJ has a law which prohibits any
    hand held to be used in their car and Verizon has JACK SHIT when it comes to
    taking care of that option. While other companies have had Bluetooth for
    months and almost a year Verizon has YET to even come close to release a new
    phone that has this capability. Lemme tell you folks some thing....this
    company is slowly draining your pockets and completely doesn't care about
    giving you ANY customer satisfaction. If they did, then 7pm nights would
    have happened already, a discount on paperless billing would take some thing
    off your bill NOT, phone selection would be better, roll over minutes that
    you don't use would be available on next statement. All of these little
    benefits that make a cellular company worth looking at and Verizon doesn't
    do ANY of it. I am really enjoying my Sony Ericsson T637 bluetooth phone
    everyday. The bluetooth headset is very clear and the talk time on this
    phone is great. 8 hours! Yes, 8 hours. O yea, Verizon doesn't have anything
    like it and will never. Welcome to the real world of premium prices and
    giving you just "ok" service with absolutely no good hardware to use on it.
    I don't mind paying my AT&T bill...the 7pm start night time is good enough
    for me!!!!!

    however it is legal in NJ to wear a corded headset in anyway you choose and
    use the phone. And with your bluetooth enjoy the viruses that are now
    comming out and the fact that people can hack and ease drop into your
    conversations.. my jabra headset doesnt bother me a bit.

    I don't understand why ANYone would want a Bluetooth phone, or a speaker
    phone. I have been using the Jabra Freespeak (BT-200 for NON-bluetooth
    phones) wireless headset for over a year (Available at multiple places for
    about $125). It is rechargeable, weighs less than an ounce, fits in your
    ear, and the mouthpiece tube only extends about halfway down your cheek
    towards your mouth (means you can still eat/smoke/drink etc), and from
    people I have talked to while using it, say it sounds great!. It can not
    only work on almost every cellphone made (use the 2.5 MM jack, and the phone
    can be used on any providers phones), but I have taken the bottom half
    (charger and normally plugs into the cellphone) and used it on cordless
    phones, PDA's, Computers with sound cards for internet calls etc. Check it
    out at: www.jabra.com/products/FreeSpeak_nonBluetooth.htm

    Personally, considering the fine is about double what the Jabra non
    Bluetooth wireless headset costs, works with almost any phone/any carrier, I
    can't understand why anyone would want anything else!

    You use your VX4500 in a car? Since the speaker is on the back, do you
    have any problems with cloth seats muffling the sound?

    With phones going for as little as $5 each, does it really make sense to
    spend $125 for a wireless headset?

    I originally got the speakerphone for a different reason (no not to pretend
    I was captain commando with my nextel...). I am often on site and sometimes
    need to have someone else participate in a short call. I can put it on
    speakerphone and set it on a desk. That way I don't need to be the man in
    the middle relaying what each person is saying.

    As a side benefit I found that the speakerphone works well in the car.

    No, the only issue I have had with the speaker on the back is the ringing
    sound is attenuated when it is in the belt clip because it faces your
    clothing.

    My Moto car speakerphone is useful to me in two instances, when others are
    in the car and need to hear the conversation, and when I want to use my
    digital voice recorder to capture important information while I'm driving
    and can't pull over to write it down.

    The earpiece approach works well for many, but not as well as the
    speakerphone does for me.

    And, oh yes, it cost a lot less than the Jabra you described.

    I forgot to mention, that I'm single and work as a consultant for my own
    business. Don't need to share/use a speakerphone, but I can see the point
    for people that need to share. It works great for me in my circumstances and
    I think it's neat that it not only works on my cellphone, but almost every
    other device I have.

    710 set to be released in 2 weeks. Motorola has a BT adapter that fits all
    their v series phones that ebables use of BT headset. And of course there
    is always installed car kits that work great that can be bought for just
    about any Verizon phone.

    I got a beta unit when Jabra was testing them... it didn't work. At all.

    The production units are probably fine; Jabra doesn't build junk. But I wasn't
    willing to pay $125 for a handsfree anyhow, so I will never know :)

    "Audio & Data support: Compatible with Motorola T720, T720i, T720c, T721,
    T722, T722i, T730, T731, V400, V300, V60p, V60i series, V60it Color, V60x,

    Your source? Or is that speculation?

    "As a solution, I advocate porn!"
     
  20. It's from years of experience with this company. Almost %100 of the time a
    good phone is suppose to be released it's pushed back for weeks or months.
    Either it's a ploy to drive gadget people crazy do they will BUY the phone
    no matter what or there's other issues or problems we're not aware of that
    aren't posted to the public. My assumption is that it has some thing to do
    with money some where along the line.
