So, after the 4.4.4 Verizon update, I'm getting constant messages in the status bar to update Verizon Visual VoiceMail. I go to app and clear Visual Voice Mail data and cache, and after a while, it reappears in the status bar again. Naturally, in Verizon's infinite wisdom, the app can't be turned off.
I use Google Voice, so I don't want, or need Verizon's Voice Mail.
Verizon Wireless unveiled the much-anticipated Motorola Droid X on Wednesday. The device, which Motorola variously describes as a touch tablet and a pocket-sized home theater, runs Android version 2.1. It will be updated over the air to run on Android 2.2 later in the year.
Those of you on Verizon that have waited oh so patiently for the arrival of the HTC One will be happy to know that we actually have an official release date. Verizon just announced via Twitter that it will be available next Thursday, August 22 for $199 complete with the Verizon logo. At this point in the game, it is probably worth waiting to see what the One Max is all about.
As we already knew, Verizon’s version of the Galaxy S III has a locked bootloader, but you didn’t think Samsung did that on purpose did you? Verizon has never been a fan of unlocked bootloaders, which always amazed me that they allowed the Galaxy Nexus on their network.
I used to have Verizon but left,kids wanted smartphones & we only had unlimited so we got them Verizon phones & did the BYOP with Straight Talk & they worked great. Both of theirs were CDMA using Verizon towers & got 3G, so we took our phones over, mine was a Commando 4g & hers was a Droid X2 & they worked getting 3g.
As some of you probably know, part of Verizon Wireless is owned by UK company Vodafone. Vodafone owns about 45% of the company, which has been a pretty lucrative stake considering Verizon Wireless’s massive profits in the past few years. According to a recently proposed deal, however, Verizon will buy out that 45% stake for a whopping $130 billion in cash and stock options.
