    I got my hands on an LG VX8000 which is 1xEVDO capable. I haven't been able to find a cable for it yet (haven't even searched) but I'm hoping it'll stick in 1xEVDO mode for a connection. Anyone else have one of these and tried?

    Thanks,
    Daniel

    Congrats on the new phone.

    As far as I know, EVDO service is only available in certain areas. You might want to check it out by calling Verizon to see whether it's available where you live.

    Good luck,

    I'd reccomend anyone who really wants to know about EVDO and the phones and plans go to www.howardforums.com and check the verizon forum..

    I have EVDO service. Infact, I have their Mobile Media service (soon to get a facelift and be called VCast) where you can stream news on your phone, etc. It's not worth the $15/month they charge, but if I can get hi-speed internet out of it, it's well worth it. Also, they sent me a notice that they're turning on EVDO in 30 more cities in the next couple months.

    Well for some reason now the xxxxxxxxxx@vzw3g.com/vzw wasy just stopped working for me so I had to start using the qnc/qnc way. Anyone else have this problem?

    Thanks for the info!
    - The bluetooth on the V710's are crippled, which is why verizon is getting sued.
    - V710's are CDMA... they wont work on Cingular. And the V710 is sucky, considering the E815 (its replacement) is coming out soon.
    - You better hurry and get Cingular ASAP, their plans are changing very soon (for the worse).
    - Amazon.com seems to have the best deals around on new phones with 1 year contracts.
    - Use www.phonescoop.com to find a phone that meets your needs.
    - If you are going the Cingular route, find a phone that supports EDGE data speeds.

    Umm... yup.

    Why are some of you still using a cable to connect the V710? DUN is one of the profiles that haven't been disabled. I connect the exact same way moahdib does and it works great. #777, yournumber@vzw3g.com/vzw.

    As for the crippled bluetooth, I guess it does bother me a little bit, but most if not all of the functions I wanted are available using a TF card:
    -transferring pictures V710<-->computer
    -transferring videos V710<-->computer
    -transferring mp3s V710<-->computer (using transferred mp3s as ringtones)
    -and i also get 128mb of storage instead of the onboard 10, which is enough to fit a full length movie converted to the phone's resolution on 3gp format:

    sorry off topic ^_^
