    Haggard, did you know that all those Verizon stores are actually franchised out to individuals? If you could find out who owns the store you went to you might actually stand a shot at filing an effective complaint. Verizon takes complaints against their franchises very seriously.

    Had a berserker temper tantrum at cell phone carrier. The lcd screen for my phone is broken. Just bought the phone 6 months ago and had the hands free mount installed in my car. My phone is now obsolete.

    They can not fix my phone under warranty. Actually, they will give me a new phone to cover the warranty. This replacement is not compatible with my car kit. So what is the point of the warranty?

    My account is a commercial account. The rep "understands" my frustration but can not find the same phone anywhere in their system. Have been watching auctions on ebay to replace broken phone. Total bullshit.

    I don't want a razr or a pda. Just want a phone that works in my car and internationally.

    AO - The Privacy Act stuff is true. Its a major hassle but its true.

    Pin codes on handsets are pretty useless so I dont bother. heres a few reasons:

    1. Software to hack the phone is freely available allowing for the phone to be reset anyway.

    2. Networks now have th ability to either block or track the IMEI ( unique electronically broadcast ID of the handset ) to either recover the phone or render it useless.

    3. PIN's just prevent someone from making a call as long as they power cycle the phone. Battery lif is so good now they could make 4 hours of calls before that happens - in that 4 hours they can find a charger.

    Anyway on to other things......

    Car Kits. Always get Bluetooth car-kits. No need to constantly change kit with each phone.

    Handset wise. Most 3G handsets now are quad band for international use.

    So just go for 3G with Bluetooth.
