    My (big) mistake!

    Sure Verizon said (on the phone) they'd charge only $10 dollars
    for shipping & handling. But they also charged for all the new
    equipment they just shipped me at my recent telephone request.

    I guess I misread what was suggested in this thread.
    There's no such thing as a free lunch (even when Lockline
    insurance ships you a different phone than what you owned).

    Specifically, Verizon shipped (& charged to my VZW phone bill):
    TXDTC10009 New-DTC:DUAL PORT KYOCERA 7135 (cradle) Price: $69.99
    TXBAT10034 3.7V CV90-K1960-01 1100 mAh Lithium Ion Price: $59.99
    TXTVL10013 TRAVEL CHARGER:KWC7135 T3 (charger) Price: $29.99
    TXLCC10031 T3, KIT HOLSTER, VERIZON, ENG (holster) Price: $14.99
    FEDEXSHP001 FEDEX 2 DAY ACCESSORY SHIPPING BY 7 PM Price: $10.00
    + Sales Tax

    This 'free' telephone replacement is starting to get expensive!

    And I still don't have an equal set of accessories (two cradles,
    four batteries, three chargers, etc.) that I already had for my
    original Qualcomm QCP 6035 that Lockline replaced with the 7135.

    The new Kyocera 7135 cradle is MUCH heftier than the Qualcomm QCP6035
    cradle was; and it comes with both a serial & USB connector, which
    the QCP 6035 didn't. Both have the extra battery charger. Only the
    plastic holster must be a joke. Why would I use that JC Whitneyesque
    contraption. Where would you clamp it? On a purse strap?

    The 120 volt / 240 volt charger Verizon shipped is wider & much
    flatter (with convenient folding prongs) than the lousy Kyocera
    120 volt (no 240 volt) TXACA0C01 huge (in comparison) & heavy
    fixed-prong power supply Lockline supplied by default. If you've
    got the choice, always go with the travel charger every time.
    It leaves nothing to the AC charger (except price). Basically, it's
    smaller, lighter, more convenient, and outpus three times more
    juice (1500 mAh vs 400 mAh) than the standard Kyocera AC charger.

    Upon review, I agree this new Kyocera 7135 is a very nice pda phone.

    But, I too find the keypad unacceptable. At least 20% of the button
    presses MISS THEIR MARK! Maybe it's my thin fingers, but I seem to
    constantly misdial (by missing numbers). At night it's even worse
    as the numbers are barely legible, they don't line up, and the red
    & green start/stop buttons are inexplicably unlit! I guess it's time
    for extensive voice training, because I'm gonna get into an accident
    at night just trying to find the Kyocera 7135 send button.

    I have not attempted the CDROM software downloads yet. But, I do
    very much appreciate the URLs you wonderful VZW groupies suggested.

    This 'free' telephone replacement is starting to get expensive!

    And I still don't have an equal set of accessories (two cradles,
    four batteries, three chargers, etc.) that I already had for my
    original Qualcomm QCP 6035 that Lockline replaced with the 7135.

    The new Kyocera 7135 cradle is MUCH heftier than the Qualcomm QCP6035
    cradle was; and it comes with both a serial & USB connector, which
    the QCP 6035 didn't. Both have the extra battery charger. Only the
    plastic holster must be a joke. Why would I use that JC Whitneyesque
    contraption. Where would you clamp it? On a purse strap?

    The 120 volt / 240 volt charger Verizon shipped is wider & much
    flatter (with convenient folding prongs) than the lousy Kyocera
    120 volt (no 240 volt) TXACA0C01 huge (in comparison) & heavy
    fixed-prong power supply Lockline supplied by default. If you've
    got the choice, always go with the travel charger every time.
    It leaves nothing to the AC charger (except price). Basically, it's
    smaller, lighter, more convenient, and outpus three times more
    juice (1500 mAh vs 400 mAh) than the standard Kyocera AC charger.

    Upon review, I agree this new Kyocera 7135 is a very nice pda phone.

    But, I too find the keypad unacceptable. At least 20% of the button
    presses MISS THEIR MARK! Maybe it's my thin fingers, but I seem to
    constantly misdial (by missing numbers). At night it's even worse
    as the numbers are barely legible, they don't line up, and the red
    & green start/stop buttons are inexplicably unlit! I guess it's time
    for extensive voice training, because I'm gonna get into an accident
    at night just trying to find the Kyocera 7135 send button.

    I have not attempted the CDROM software downloads yet. But, I do
    very much appreciate the URLs you wonderful VZW groupies suggested.

    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 ;)
