VZW made your phone less functional -not to mention it's a driving safety issue) to make a demand for fully functional replacements...maybe a free upgrade to the Storm 2 when it's available if you're interested in that. But I see no reason for certain users to have to contend with a lesser device because of VZW/RIMs decision to ignore a known problem.
    True if they knowingly overlooked this issue it's almost bordering on illegal. What I mean is the state I live in requires hands free driving so it makes no sense that they would approve an OS that could easily result in a class action suit against them. VZW is located in NY and the laws regarding cell phone and driving are even more strict than they are here in CA. So go figure, just doesn't make a lot of sense to me.

    It must be hands-free while driving in CA and the same in NY as well.

    I'm OFF TOPIC but....
    yup - very strict here as well (NJ). Been on the books for a while now and enforcement is picking up noticably.

    New Jersey motorists were given about 120,000 tickets for violating the state's cell phone/texting law during the first year the law was in effect, the attorney general's office and Division of Highway Traffic Safety announced April 24. During March 2009, 14,464 cell phone tickets were issued to motorists throughout the state for violating the law.
    I wonder if any of the State/local police officers will feel pity for those they pull over and hear, "Sorry oficer, but my bluetooth connection seems to have failed". Yeah, they'll buy into that, right????? By the way, does this OS also affect your wired headset volume?

    310,000 tickets issues by the California Highway Patrol. 25,000 last month alone.

    You know I never tried the wired headset but it won't really help while driving. It's a $286 ticket for having both ears covered while driving.

    But for some reason, one can be totally deaf and still obtain a CA driver's license?
