    you are correct -- they finally did fix the problem today.
    Furthermore, yesterday when I called to complain very bitterly, may
    actually apologized and offered a refund for one month of service. I
    have to acknowledge that it took awhile and I did have to jump through
    some hoops, but they did repair the problem.

    I live in western MA, and have the same problems as the original poster. I
    have three VX4400s, and can sit here at 1:30 AM and call one from the other
    and get sent to voicemail without a single ring. Then reverse, call from the
    other one back and get sent to voicemail as if the one I just called on,
    sitting 3 feet away, is out of range. Sometimes they ring the first time,
    sometimes they don't. they always work just fine if I call again a second
    time. Also a lot of people who call me have gotten the viocemail when my
    phone was sitting at home. (worth noting that I live in sight of a VZW
    tower, about a mile away.)
