    Pull the battery for a short term fix. Then search for BlackBerry KB10859 for more info or try this link: View Document

    It is yet another BlackBerry issue.

    You see that thing that says 1XEV in the upper right corner, wammy 3g. It's just not called 3G, it's really EVDO at Rev A speeds. ATT's is called Edge as opposed to EVDO.
    so what does it mean when it does not show 1xev...... most of the time mine just shows 1x..... I live in Denver Colorado.

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm still a newbie so please bear with me and my silly question. I'm a month in with my curve 8330 (pink) and I love it and I'm learning so much from crackberry.

    I'll get right to it. I recently updated my verizon account to include the VZ Navigator app for $9.99 a month. I like it for the vocal turn by turn directions since a lot of the times I'm by myself and I can keep my eyes on the road a little bit more. I haven't had a chance to really play with the other selections that are on it, but it seems useful enough for what I need. I feel stupid though whenever I tell anyone because they all give me that look like I can't believe you paying extra a month for something that you could get for free. In fact in all my browsing through this site and forum, nobody really talks about it.

    My question is.. Was I foolish for getting VZ Navigator? Is Google Map that much better? BTW I did have Google Maps but I uninstalled it. I value your constructive advice.

    Another extremely noobish question.

    I have a Storm 9530. I recently suspended my service. Which will remain that way for about a year. Reason being is that I'm in the Army and getting deployed to Iraq for my 3rd time.

    My question is this. Using SIM cards in cell phones is now commonplace over there. What exactly do I need to go through in order to get my phone able to be used with a SIM card over there? Unlocking? Is this even possible?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    First, thanks for you service.
    You can get your phone unlocked by calling VZW global support and they can tell you about using your phone where you're gonna be and what plans they have. 1800-711-8300

    Why all of a sudden (November 2008) is VZW charging for a data plan on a non-blackberry phone. I used to have a Treo and never had to pay for data. I bought my son a Q to use for a phone, mp3 player, and organizer. No need for data. I hate to sound like a cheat but my son is crushed. Is there a way around it?

    No way around it for newer phones, as far as I know or have heard - but a rep might know something I don't.

    There are just a few reasons this was done - to reduce customer issues with huge data bills, to help further amortize the cost of a smartphone and - this is the big one - to force parity with BlackBerry devices.

    It depends on what you want. I also use VZ Nav, because I don't like Google maps or BB maps. I want the turn by turn. I don't want a stand alone GPS, because I don't want to worry about taking it in/out of the car. I have it on my phone and I like that. Yes you can go to sprint and get it as part of the package, but again I don't want sprint. VZW charges you to use it, and if it is something you think is a good value for the money, like I do I don't see a problem with it. Like insurance through VZW, some people will tell you it is a rip off, others love it.

    All of the above & none of the privacy issues you get with Google.

    And Asurion insurance is still a ripoff.

    AmazeGPS or whatever also does voice navigation but I found the interface to be far too messy. I liked that it had a huge arrow and street name for turns but otherwise I prefer VZNav.

    I think the "big one" was to prevent people from getting smartphones to not use them as a smartphone Like buying an XBOX 360 to watch DVD's but not play games. Like buying a car to park in your garage and use the stereo but never drive it. Like buying a microwave just to use the timer, not to nuke anything... What's the point?

    But, to the OP, the Q does not require a data plan, but if you don't get the plan, you're supposed to have data blocked.

    Hey, I resemble that comment!

    Though I didn't buy it for that reason, that's pretty much what it's turned into. Netflix and media center extender for the last 5 months. Maybe played 20 minutes of games.
