    Linda,
    I suggest NOT posting your number.

    I also feel for you. You had to pay for accessories
    that you thought should have been free.

    Guess it really does pay to read the fine print.
    Now it'll be in 10 pt. instead of 8 pt. :)
    And they call 10 pt. easy to read ;)

    Linda,
    I suggest NOT posting your number.

    I also feel for you. You had to pay for accessories
    that you thought should have been free.

    Guess it really does pay to read the fine print.
    Now it'll be in 10 pt. instead of 8 pt. :)
    And they call 10 pt. easy to read ;)

    There are two different lockline programs: Standard and Pro (I believe
    that's what they're called). Standard doen't cover any accessories, it
    SHOULD replace the standard accessories if a different phone model is
    shipped. The professional package replaces all accessories you may
    have - batteries, leather cases, car chargers, etc. I don't think it's
    right that they charge you for standard 'required' items, i.e. sync
    cradle and plastic holster.

    But hopefully cheaper than buying a new 7135.. :)

    Hey if you want to sell your 7135, I'll give you $35.... :)
