    Also not a kid and I prefer flip phones for the same reasons (especially the

  15. I guess you haven't seen my complaints about lack of hardware over the last
    year! For some reason this company lacks phones big time! I love using my
    Bluetooh wireless headset with my Sony phone that I got from AT&T. That's
    basically all I wanted from Verizon and my god...they couldn't produce
    ANYTHING as in a good cell phone with bluetooth at all. AT&T alone has 3 or
    4 phones that are Bluetooth capable. Verizon always has been on the last
    ladder with this shit and I just love posting in here now since I'm full
    blown AT&T and loving every minute of it. I got 1000 anytime minutes, free
    nights and weekends and my nights start at 7pm, unlike this piece of shit
    company which REFUSES to change that all for $39.00/month. BLOW ME Verizon.
    Hahahaahah.

  18. I guess you haven't seen my complaints about lack of hardware over the last
    year! For some reason this company lacks phones big time! I love using my
    Bluetooh wireless headset with my Sony phone that I got from AT&T. That's
    basically all I wanted from Verizon and my god...they couldn't produce
    ANYTHING as in a good cell phone with bluetooth at all. AT&T alone has 3 or
    4 phones that are Bluetooth capable. Verizon always has been on the last
    ladder with this shit and I just love posting in here now since I'm full
    blown AT&T and loving every minute of it. I got 1000 anytime minutes, free
    nights and weekends and my nights start at 7pm, unlike this piece of shit
    company which REFUSES to change that all for $39.00/month. BLOW ME Verizon.
    Hahahaahah.
