Things like this only tempt me even more to jump from the Big Red boat. The ONLY reason I'm with VZW is because my girlfriend has it, and she refuses to switch networks, but can't afford to talk to me if I change. Too bad there isn't a general sense of comity between the different carriers. It'd make like a lot easier. On a side note, its probably a great thing for Apple that VZW didn't agree to the iPhone deal. Can you imagine the extra fees incorporated with such a popular phone?!?

you.....are a retard, if you want to go to another company, then do it. everyone is offering unlimited plans now so i'm sure it wont cost you too much. i think the real reason you don't want to switch is because you know you won't get near as good of coverage or service with anyone else. oh yeah, and did you hear that at&t is gunna carge $5 more for their internet package on the new iphone just because its 3g? they are just gunna charge $1.99 for the visual vm, you still have the option of taking the free vm that comes with the plan.

It's actually $10 more for the iPhone data, and NOT because it's 3G, but because the phone is considered a PDA now with it's new capabilities and ALL PDA's pay $30 for data.... Not supporting VZW's charging or not charging of VVM, just can't believe the people who call other's out and don't know the facts they are using to support their claims....

pda's can have 3rd party apps loaded into them....don't try to dis me homie. i use a pda. its funy that they are bringing they're charge up when vzw just dropped theirs to $29.99. pda's can also take videos and send mms. last i heard, iphone technically wasn't a pda. support that claim

i agree with you. WHATS THE BIG DEAL!!! Its just something EXTRA! It's not like they are making you pay the $1.99, twisting your arm. ITS OPTIONAL! IF YOU WANT THE EXTRA< PAY THE PRICE... if you wanna be economical .. then just stick with *86 and save 2 bucks a month.

Whatever happened to Verizon's "any device, any app" initiative? That was all the rage in Feb. and March, but I haven't read anything recently about it.

a carrier that has fee's? oh my! these exclusive devices cost a lot of money, and acquiring companies costs a lot of money, its gotta come from somewhere...you can not pay money, and get what you pay for...or you can pay money, and get service from a carrier that routinely wins award after award

Wow, imagine that! How lazy are you to get your voicemail delivered to you visually then complain about paying for such a service? Today I had a customer complain that we charge for data on her Blackberry!!! It's like me buying a new PC, taking it home and expecting free high speed internet as part of the price. If you use it, pay for it!

What is Visual Voicemail? I've never heard of it on the iPhone or any other phone.

don't worry, eventually they will free it up. not many people remember but that vcast music identifier thing cost 99 cents at its initial release. But after about 2 days they realized it was not worth it, and decided to make it free. I'm betting verizon will do it for this app as well. No one is going to pay for it, and then verizon will realize the only way people will verizon give recognition for having visual voicemail would be if they let everyone have it. it should be more a perk for the phone than a costly add on.
