Updating altell phone software
we shall see,maybe vs can pull ahead in the future. i'm doing that right now, in fact i'm composing this on my visor connected to my vs nokia 8290. the problem is, the ignorant csrs will try to push the extra data minutes on you if you call to have the free data service activated (which is actually supposed to be on by default).
hey walt congrats on getting the kyocera,nice phone. – by jasonone more thing, i'm paying .99 but i get way more minutes, 600 anytime, and 2000 weekend (w free nationwide ld and roaming). granted, gsm is lagging right now in domestic coverage, but they're building the network rapidly. gprs will start soon, (56k data), followed by broadband.
– by jasonhello: i am on a voicestream plan and i'm happy with it. plus i like the ability to send/receive email to my phone in addition to using the ir port for my notebook.
one thing i can't seem to get a hold of is the elusive aim for voicestream customers. points for verizon, they probably have a better maintained website. this is what happens when your 14 year old discovers aim on aol and sets it up on the “emergency phone” they carry for those just in case scenarios. you can send 11,377 messages in 30 days or less even under direct parental supervision kids are more slick today as opposed to when i was a kid (“dammit”) they don't charge by the minute, but rather, by the transmission and receipt of each individual text message, that is a nickel for you to send it and a nickel for the poor slob you sent it to to receive it!
of course, i find out about this service the day after my aol mobile communicator arrives.
it makes me think of a nice sunday afternoon stroll only to discover you have stepped into the stinkiest pile of dog poop well beyond the halfway point of the stroll.what i cannot understand why anyone would go with voicestream??
