    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:

    Well, it's only really free on Nights/Weekends. The rest of the time, it takes away from your allotted anytime minutes. The service is included at no additional charge to Verizon Wireless customers with an America's Choices National Plan $39.99/month or more. It is not included with any of the Local or Singlerate plans.

    All of their current phones work with the service. ALl you would need to get would be a USB data cable for your phone, or a bluetooth adapter if you get the Motorola V710. Good luck!

    Peace,

    Woohoo! I just got this working with my LG VX3200 at 115kb/s with this cable.

    Setting up the connection was a bit tricky, I had to configure it as a generic 56000bps modem, but it works at 115kb/s.

    It's awesome to know that I'll be able to use this when I finish my car pc.

    The transflash card is not intended for repeated removal and insertion. That's why bluetooth being disabled is an issue. The TF card is a fragile tiny little chip and the mechanism in the phone will break repeatedly. I went through a number of v710s before giving up on it.

    Ok guys, I need a hand.

    I bought a data cable for the LG7000 (pretty sure it's a FutureDial cable) bought it [http://store.yahoo.com/cellphoneshop/usbdacaforlg6.html/]here[/url]. Then I downloaded the futuredial drivers. My computer will not recognize the phone when I connect it to the computer. I tired using verizon dialer, and it says it can't find a phone, and tells me maybe I should install drivers.

    Am I missing something here?

    I've been looking into switching from Sprint to Verizon to take advantage of EVDO and Bluetooth with the E815 phone coming out. I've come across some pretty bad news.

    1) The NA-MOU plans are no longer offered. In other words, if you don't already have a Minutes of Use plan, you're SOL and you will be charged for data usage or need to pay for the $49/mo plan. It appears the new America's Choice plans are NOT Minutes of Use plans. If you have an old NA-MOU plan, it looks like you're ok for now.

    2) If you upgrade your phone to one using EVDO, your Minutes of Use plan goes away (for data usage) and you're automatically charged by data usage which, with EVDO speeds, could rack up bills fast.

    I think the days of pay-by-the-minute internet at Verizon are coming to an end. This is very unfortunate. Anyway, here's a couple of links to check out what I came across.

    Bottom line, if you're planning on upgrading your phone, service or switching to Verizon, know the facts BEFORE you do it. All in all, I may just stay with Sprint now, even though they have crappy Bluetooth offerings.

If the speed was better I'd just drop me home ISP and use wireless... oh, and I don't plan to leave Nextel as I have too many friends and family members on Nextel. Later!

That'll connect at national access speeds. almost all plans have national access minutes only useage on them. If yours doesn't work, call CS and have them add it. It's free, just uses airtime, so you're ok on nights and weekends. Works awesome, I get 110-125K and the real download speeds test at 50-60K

    Dave

    I did all if your steps, and i do get it to connect at 115K....The problem is that i can't browse though!....When i open up IE, it does nothing. I click on status and it says connected. What else do i need to do?..Do i need to check Data In Always on my cell,and or do i need to mess with anything in IE on my laptop? it is an LG VX6000......Thanks!
