Verizon's Poor Equipment Selection

Discussion in 'alt.cellular.verizon' started by JLP, Jun 17, 2004.

  1. 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.

    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.

  12. 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

    Both. It depends what you want, and how soon you want it. I usually find
    resellers have new stuff and no bid buy (buy it now) stuff, while a lot of
    the stuff from individuals does the bidding thing and may/or may not be
    used. For myself, I travel about 11 1/2 months out of the year, so want it
    now while I am at a certain address, rather than sometime later when I may
    have moved.
    There are many many other places to buy cellphones from (resellers), I just
    mentioned ebay since the OP had specifically asked about it. If I want
    something fast, I go with straight resellers (not ebay), medium quick, I go
    with ebay, forever and a day, private party on ebay.
