Anyway, my primary line is due for ne2 with $100.00 off any device and I was thinking of buying a phone the Tour I would guess. I would do this to sell it in order to offset the etf's that I will need to pay if my company switches. I dont really want to shame vzw, but I owe 110.00 per line and If i do this the tour would almost let me break even? So can I do this? Do I need to wait til the 30 days are up to sell. Give it to me straight. Thanks, Rudy
    Well I mean you could do this, the biggest problem your going to have is the primary ETF is going to go back up to the full 175. I would try to maybe talking your employer into paying part of your ETF or maybe helping or paying your existing bill. I know thats not that easy to do, but even if you sell the tour...maybe 350...110+175+ how many other lines you have....= possibly more than what you can sell your tour for. its kinda like :deal: with the devil. I would either stay with vzw and try to get them to help that bill or have them help with the etf... IMHO

    LOL i know what you mean.. I would talk to your employer because if you use your NE2 its going to make one line 175 and the other 115 so you see where I am going. And if you try and say that you dont want the tour and cancel they will hit you with full price of tour if you dont send it back.. Honestly really talk to your employer

    Hey Jynepsa, thanks for the info you gave me. I went back and researched to really see how many anytime minutes we use and it is about 700. I think we are going to switch to the vzw bus. share 1400 plan. Can you get any credit if you switch this for me? I will be glad to help a fellow bbos member if you do.

    Folks this is a great thread if you need/have any questions about Verizon. With the Tour finally here and more and more people talking about it, some of you might start getting the itch to switch. Here is where you can ask away and Jnespa will do his best to answer you. I am sticking this thread for now as to try and consolidate all the questions about verizon and account into one thread.

    If I install and activate BBM on my storm does the text messaging rate apply for any messages sent and received or does BBM utilize the unlimited data plan, therefore having no additional cost to my current plan? I called 611 but they couldn't confirm this for me, though the rep I spoke with thinks it would fall on the data plan. Thanks in advance for your help.
    When in doubt, pull the battery out!

    Thanks, that's what I figured but wanted to make sure. I'm not a texting person, I use email but have been seeing all the talk about BBM and 5.0 so it sparked an interest.

    Quick voicemail question, I recorded a greeting ages ago and the other day my wife called and got my voicemail and wanted to know who the woman was saying I wasn't available. I told her I was without a clue. I called my voicemail went to general settings and finally found some options to either use my phone number in the message, voice with name or check my personal recording which was correct but how do you select which one you want active? I couldn't find an option for that anywhere and is this something that recently changed?

    Thanks in advance J for your help

    try this, once you call your voice mail and get your password in and listen/save/erase any messages and get to the main menu..it should be options 4 then personal options 3 then greetings 1 and then personal greeting 3 then save #

    So if you want to get there when you get to the main menu press 4, then 3, then 1, then 3, then #.

    If that doesnt work I will try to find another answer
