New phones listed on Verizon's Rebate Form
Verizon's newest rebate form goes into effect today, September 2. Listed on it are several new phones that should be out by October 13th (the rebates end date). First off is the Motorola Rapture VU30, which is a flip phone with new keypad styling, due to be released Sep 9 with a price of $99. The Krave ZN4 Titanium is the new name of Motorola's first full touchscreen phone the Blaze ZN4, featuring a unique clear plastic flip with integrated earpiece speaker. Also on the list is the mysterious Motorola VU204, of which little is known. From LG comes the VX8360 and VX5500, which are updated versions of the VX8350 and VX5400. Samsung will introduce the Sway U650, similar in design to the Soul, and Knack U310, which is geared more to seniors with a design similar to the Coupe and Jitterbug. Unfortunately, missing for the rebate form are the HTC Diamond and Blackberry Storm (a.k.a Thunder), both of which are highly anticipated. Those are more likely to come out after October 13th and may be listed on the next rebate form.

The thunder is called the storm and is coming soon... as for the diamond and pro, Sprint has some exclusivity stuff but it will most likely be a short exclusive.

go to sprint or att, it will be your mistake. ive worked for nearly all the companies and verizon when they release phones are a majority of the time less problemsome then impatient twitchy competitors that just have to crap their phones on the market. Who cares about first to own if you have the best product.

No kidding, VZW needs to get off their ass and start releasing phones already. I have been out of contract for almost six months waiting for them to release something good.

i agree!!!! i've been out of contract for about the same amount of time - when i started hearing rumors about the diamond. i looked at the dare today, but really want to hold out for the diamond. i'm gonna take a look at the sprint diamond, and if don't like it, i'm going for the dare, i guess. i just want a WM device due to the plethora of programs to add on! grrrr vzw...

re: #30 I'm pretty sure Verizon allows you to use other phones of the same technology (which Sprint is). If you don't mind paying more for just the Diamond (probably $500-600) you can get Verizon's update for it. Plus Verizon's Diamond isn't as good as Sprint's. I'm not positive about this, but I'm pretty sure.

Comment #1 and #2: Please do me a favor and move your sorry whiney asses over to another cell phone compaany and take advantage of their 30 day test periods. Living in the city doesn't mean shit, to be honest it means quite the opposite. When you move down to your crappy carrier with the "cooler phones" you'll notice that there are a lot more people trying to use the same amount of towers by the less than carrier. So what does that mean? Dropped calls, takes longer to conenct, frustration, anger and wishing you were back on the biggest network. Be my guest.

Exactly. If you don't ENJOY the fantastic service Verizon is providing it's customers, then make the switch and make more room for those who understand what its like to have a working phone, and let us enjoy what we've got. We dont need to hear your whining as you leave, just fuck off and die. Its that simple.

Sprint uses most of Verizon's towers whenever they do not have a tower.... so how could it get taxed more in a city if Verizon is big in the city? I think I'll stick with Sprint because they appreciate their customers in giving them great phones without stripping them down (minus picture mail for PDA's prior to Diamond) but all older PDAs will be able to use it as well now......

Yes you are correct that Sprint uses Verizon towers when they dont have a tower near but you are using the lower end of the signal. Also you are being charged for using those towers as well unless you have that silly $5 or $10 fee to have no roaming (worst feat. i have ever heard of btw) why not just switch to Verizon and take FULL advantage of the 3G network that we have had for 3+ yrs? Im not trying to say sprint sucks and the only good service out there is Verizon, in my case it is but i have had ATT, Sprint/NExtel and TMoble and they have all failed in service. You might get decent service with sprint but why pay them to you Verizon towers its not like your getting any taste of what they offer? As far as Verizon stripping down phones i dont think they do. Yes they take away WIFI but who needs it when you get on 3g everywhere. WiFi is over rated in my opinion, but most everything else stays the same so i dont understand when pple say Verizon strips phones...

Although Anomalies was a bit rash with the reply he or she is absolutly correct and please stop your whinning and move already. You will be back. I went to Sprint only to have my phone shut off twice cuz they couldn't get their billing department together with the store to see that I actually paid for the equipment. I went to AT&T about 4 years ago and had more drop calls then I have had with VZW. Now I must admit that do strip the shit out of the phones and they are pretty expensive but for someone that travels alot I know that I do have some sort of connection almost 98% of the time

I agree 100% with Anomalies. Quite honestly, I'm NOT with VZW because of the phones. However, I do love my Dare. BUT, I would import a higher level phone if I could. I'm with VZW because no matter where I am, I have a signal, and don't drop a call or break up. I can't say I've ever had the same luck anywhere else. So instead of trying my luck, I prefer to stay with what I KNOW works.

wait till you get a bill for data. Gotta watch Verizon like a hawk cuz they will bill the hell out of you and good luck trying to get it fixed.

if you dont want to be charged for data...then dont get on the internet, its clearly stated that on the new nationwide plans, you will be charged 1.99 per MB for data usage, which is mobile web access, browsing ringtones and videos, downloading games and programs.. anything that requires data to be x-fered to your phone will cause you to have charges

..also would you like to know why you are charged. I will tell you, when you download apps, this takes up bandwidth, and there is a finite amount to go around. Granted, VZW allocates usage the best so there are less dropped calls, yada yada yada, but still if they didnt charge, then they couldnt afford to put out more towers to handle all those britney spears songs you keep downloading.

also if you dont like being charged for data go to your vzw.com account and block all incomming and outgoing data so you dont get charged....its that easy, or call 611 and have them do i for you if you're to lazy.

10. Hi (unregistered)


Glad verizon is getting the Samsung Sway U650 because they haven't had a decent slider in a while since the chocolate. I like the soul design and all. Also, you can always wait for a new phone to come out but you know that something better will come out in the future. By the time the Blackberry Thunder comes out there be talk about the Iphone 3 Voyager 2 ect. Than you'll wait ect. Just pick a phone now or pick a phone comming in the near future. Don't like any of the phones or the ones comming out switch carriers.

The u650 is a 1X only device, No EVDO, It doesn't have Soulb's navigation key, It's just a brush stainless steel ala LG VX8700 slider.

You people are so ridiculous! You think you can tell these people to go somewhere else like VW is your company. If you're an actual VW employee and this was how you dealt with walk-in customers who wanted a better phone you would probably be fired on the spot. And if you weren't, morons like you would run a perfectly good company into the ground. New amazing phones are coming out for every company and all Verizon adds are these mid-level phones? What do you expect people to say when they are probably paying more than they would with any other major carrier?

Sorry, I don't work for Volskwagon? I don't know where the mix up is there? Oh did you mean VZW? Oh okay, I see what you what you mean. Anyways, obviously I don't treat a customer like that over the phone or in-store. However, a very good portion of our customer's who leave, come back in 30 days. You can argue, but the statistics are there. Now, I do agree to an extent that VZW crippling there phones is retarded and we could use a better line-up. People are actually okay with most phones, tits the high end tech junkie phones that I think we could majorly improve on. Just give it time or enough customer complaints and we'll see how things change.

VZW is by far the worst for releasing new handsets. WHAT IS THE BIG DEAL? If a crappy company like Sprint can release new phones (smartphones that is), why can't Verizon do it? It took HOW LONG for the 6800 to come out compared to the Sprint version? We'll be lucky to see the Touch Diamond and the Touch Pro by the end of Q1 2009. VZW handsets really suck.

Did I say anything about our handsets not sucking? Yeah I agree some of them blow. But I was talking about networks retard. Next time you respond, actually read the post before looking like an idiot. kthx

Sprint releasing phones sooner than VZW doesnt exactly seem to be working for them. Come back and post again when Sprint is still releasing phones right away and they are no longer in the red. Meaning that they simply lose more customers than they add every quarter. I dont know. Coincidence?

vzw makes you attach an IV to your wallet..enough said..ATT is 60/40 across the board with service/coverage...tmobile..is a bit spotty but they will be 3g by the end of the year in LA I think which should up the towers being built.

you get what you pay for in the cell phone industry. if you want quality, then you pay for it. its not a difficult concept to grasp. VZW has different phones at all price ranges as well as price plans. what kills me is when people complain about how expensive VZW is, when ATT (our only real competition) is pretty much the EXACT same.

Every company comes out low end, mid level, and high end phones because all consumer's needs are different. You are right, Verizon does strip down some of their devices. But that doesn't mean that they are still terrible phones. If anything Verizon's phones work better because they test the crap out of their phones before they release them. Verizon is not a reactive company, they are a proactive company. Companies like Sprint and AT&T decide on which phones to carry and push them to the market as quickly as possible without testing the device first (i.e. iPhone 3G, Mogul, and just about every low and mid level phone on Sprint). I would rather have a phone that is tested and working properly when I go to purchase and not have to worry about buying a crappy phone.

It's real funny how you people like Sprint so much and think they have great customer service. They lost almost 1 millioini customers last quarter if they continue to do that you will have to switch.

I think Sprint is still salvagable. They have been working on customer service, have a great everything plan and have been releasing some really innovative phones. Just about every review I read on the Instinct said it was ovarall a better phone than the Iphone except that the Iphone would win the comparison because of the Apple logo.What? Now they're releasing the Diamond and then the Touch Pro next month. Those are two of the best phones ever made to date. All that being said I don't use Sprint but they are either on a great rebound or doing a good job of making the company look profitable to potential buyers. VW, or VZW just to be clear, is a good company. They wouldn't have so many subscribers if they weren't but they need to get on the ball with that open headset alliance thing. The sooner they start putting out phones that rival the competitions new offerings the less complaints they will have to deal with.

#21 - You must have ignored all the complaints about the Instinct then. It had as many if not more than the iPhone 3G and we all should know by now how many complaints the iPhone 3G has had.

not if they keep hiring black guys with tattoos on there necks and arms. seriously, I went into a store with my friend to get his bill fixed and the guy said this, "oh and we get paid on surveys now so if you get a call please give me a 5" Are you kidding me? They will never turn it around! They are dead!

what is wrong with people...who chooses a cell phone company just for the CELL PHONE? its all about what the company offers, coverage and if your willing to pay...i cant believe how many people say they are swtiching to different carriers based on their phones!.... anyways, verizons upcoming phones look very promising. remember everyone, vzw is the leading carrier based on costumers, and personally i would base them number one on features and what they have to offer too. even if they do "cripple" their phones. if your poor dont go verizon go tmobile..haha lol

I do. I mainly care about the phone and its features. Hate me if you want to but if features didn't matter, then why are there so many freaking phones coming out per month if all that mattered to people was reaching other poeple. And if I get all drop call, I do is call right back. I never use to get dropped calls when I was in Verizon, but Verizon's sucky phones drove me away. When I get a dropped call, I hear two beeps to alert me that the call was dropped. So then I call back and in less than two seconds the phone is answered and we continue the conversation. Its not that bad. Every body makes it seem like the world is going to end when there is a dropped call. I didn't always have full coverage with Verizon (in my high school classes and locker room) and I didn't have signal with AT&T when I was taking summer college classes, but neither of these cases bothered me. Maybe my age is the reason why I'm not so anal and crazy about best coverage, best signal, and all that. I'd rather have Verizon since most of my family has it but I don't mind being with AT&T for the iphone. *If all that mattered was signal, the millions of dollars spent on getting better 3g and cellular tv instead would have went to enhancing cellular towers*

First of all the idea of a dropped call is not what is a bad thing. The bad thing about dropped calls is that in case of an emergency or when losing battery and you are in the middle of an important conversation, you do not want the call dropped and not have a way of contacting the person again right away. Verizon solves this problem by giving you what you paid for and yes they take away features on phones which is bullshit but if you are looking for a phone with certain features I'm sure you can find it on Verizon. I'm waiting on either the Thunder/Storm or the Diamond/Touch Pro because my new every two is up but they're taking forever which is retarted, so yea Verizon you need to hurry that shit up. Temporary Mobile should never be mentioned in conversations like this because they have nothing to say or offer. They suck, period and their only saving grace might be the HTC Dream Android phone which other carriers will start picking up soon. And Sprint just keeps losing costumers so I won't be shocked if Verizon just flat out buys them out just because they can, lol. AT&T and the IPhone craze really doesn't amount to shit either so I won't bother discussing it. I don't know when it became cool to have the same thing that everyone else has, along with an MP3 player that looks just like my expensive ass phone so no one can tell the difference. Plus on top of that it doesn't offer shit but features that have been in phones since 5 years ago. It doesn't event have copy/paste...NEXT!

and usually when i get a dropped call, my phone says searching service, so i wouldnt be able to call them back anyway..but i only have no service in the adirondacks where no one lives...i like verizons interface a whole lot better than at&t too! even if they do have the same Ui for alot of their phones. im sorry but verizon deafinitly has the most features out of any other company, even if you do have to spend the extra money!.... i heart verizon
