    Okay, so I currently have the LG EnV phone on Verizon...I have the 450 minute plan with unlimited text and unlimited data...and my bill comes to like $79.99...when I purchase my Blackberry (whenever the Niagara comes out) since I have the unlimited data plan already I should be alright or is there a different unlimited data plan for their Blackberry phones?

    So calling a US embassy in france should be free too since its american soil? People will contort or ignore any rule they want to make it sound like they're getting ripped off.

    Its not the same thing... America Samoa pays taxes to the government just like the continental us. The phone system is just the same as here. I got names off my caller ID when they called my landline. If hawaii is free ... then america samoa supposed to be free too.


    anyway i bet the us embassy's have 800 numbers.

    I just checked ...yeah ..your.. post has no connection to what I talking about. I am getting raped 900.00 who can pay that? I can't. Verizon wants pocket all the money I guarantee you that.. No one in A.S. Is getting anything from the calls. They know hella Samoans are in the continental US and calling home and that is hella easy money to steal til the government pays attention.

    So then you just didn't read your customer agreement that explained that there are NANPA numbers that are long distance?

    Now don't go branding this as a VZW ripoff - I just checked the other carriers and guess what? Similar rates.

    There is a collective tariff issue and in many areas, mobile calls run under a different tariff.

    Who the heo reads their customer agreement? I bet you didn't past the first 10 lines.

    Even so Am Samoa should not be one of those numbers. Give this island some respect.Or we won't give you any more Pro-bowl NFL players.

    This is getting ludicrous & childish. It wasn't that long ago Alaska & Hawaii were under special tariffs - something that didn't go away until the early eighties.

    You tell a judge you didn't know, he might feel sorry for you until he realizes you're a stupid lout and laughs at your ignorance.

    Probably some kid in trouble for calling a Samoan Dial-A-Porn line.

    My dial a porn calls are theraputic and shouldn't be judged... 80's was nearly 30 yrs ago before mobile was big and it was 6.00 a min to talk on your brick phone locally... Your can't put tariffs on incoming calls.Tariffs are for physical imported products. Verizon will remove them charges from my bill because I'm gonna argue til they give up and they are gonna give me free calling to America Samoa like its supposed to be. I will be victorious.

    Do a search for telecom tariff. See that international communications are governed by tariffs.

    Then go sit in your corner for misbehaving again.

    Ummmm... You do realize there is 2 Samoas?... Don't you?

    Samoa is an Independent Nation with a Monarchy.. Yes ....i guess it does have tariffs

    American Samoa is US territory with a whole different communications system. They don't tax US calls.

    Verizon Wireless does offer that service...it's included free with all of our plans and is called No Answer/Busy Transfer. I don't have the exact instructions with me because I'm on vacation but it is a service we offer.
    Thank you for the info. When VZW opened a local shop and we switched to it for work, I had asked if this was possible and was told it was not. I never looked into it since. If anyone knows the process to set this up, let me know. Otherwise I will do some looking into it. Thanks again.

    You know, the more you yap, the more evident it is you're not playing with a full deck.

    Politics means nothing in the telco arena. There are still companies that charge $2/min to make a call across town.

    What means everything is that you made an agreement for phone service that clearly outlines what is free and what is not. You also agreed to pay the rate currently in effect at the time of connection.

    If you are too slow to pay attention to the things you agree to, then it is YOUR FAULT! This would apply even if you just got soaked $100 to call across town.

    Fess up, grow up, learn personal responsibility and stop whining. Pay your bill or watch your credit go into the crapper and service get disconnected.

    Please note I gave you a more appropriate name above.

    Forgive me for not wading through this entire thread if these questions have already been answered previously, but I reviewed the first ten pages or so and did not see it anywhere...

    I have been a US Cellular customer for about 7 years. Last June, I moved to a "fringe" area of their network and barely get service at home. My wife and I do not have a landline phone (we've used cell exclusively for about 4 years now). VZW recently moved into my area, and when they turned on their network, I notice when I roam on VZW, I get 3 bars to full signal on my Curve, so we're considering switching over. I've gotten to enjoy certain third party apps, along with downloading my own ringtones, themes and wallpaper and using built in GPS with US Cellular because they do not "lock out" any of those features. I've heard that VZW locks certain features. My question is, if we switch, what limitations will I face that I have not had to deal with on US Cellular's network? I spoke to the rep at the store and he seemed uncertain as to what would be limited or not limited. A co-worker has recently switched to VZW and said that they have changed, and his Storm is not "locked" and he is able to download third party apps and transfer ringtones and wallpaper to his phone without issue...is this true? Also, in your experience and opinion, should I switch to VZW?

    Your help and input is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your time!

    Rob

    Anyone? Please...

    Seems to me that of VZW has better coverage and you cannot us our phones now. A switch may be in order. GPS on the storm is unlocked full, Curve and pearl and can use VZNAV and BBMaps. As for ringtones and themes, etc. you can put them on any device. Themes you want to make sure are good, as they can be device specific.

    As for pricing, you can compare what you are paying now by going to New Cell Phones, CPO Cell Phones, Prepaid Cell Phones, Cell Phone Plans - Verizon Wireless , you can see pricing, phones, etc.

    I was with VZW prior to being an employee with them. I do not know what the custsomer serivce is like with your current carrier, but I have always had great serivce with VZW and now as a rep I feel I provide that same service to customers I help

    Thank you. I have checked pricing already and will be within 5 dollars of where we are now for similar airtime/data.

    So I will be able to continue to use Slacker, Viigo, Vlingo, Fox news, sync itunes, Weatherbug, etc...? Are any third party apps blocked?

    Thanks again.

    No, unless you count third party GPS apps - they work, but they don't get that assisted GPS data.

    Yeah... your namecalling and insults are against forum rules.. I read that ... And I did read the verizon contract... I'm joking tongue in cheek when I say I lot of things... Do I have to type "LOL" after something that is not serious?... sheeshhhh......TwixieDAD.. I doubt you even work for verizon... The only things you know is from quick internet searches which you don't read all the way.

    And VatosTacos calling cards is the biggest scam ever...I've dealt with calling cards for a long time. But again you bringing one thing that has nothing to with the other.

    The Fact of the Matter is Verizon is charging outrageous fees not american samoa. They doing it because nobody ever said anything to them... People just accept things... And don't ever question it.. Just like you ...Verizon doesn't know the difference between Samoa and American Samoa.

    Any intelligent soul could figure it out.

    Verizon International Long Distance

    International Long Distance | Wireless from AT&T, formerly Cingular

    Sprint/Nextel International Dialing Rates

    T-Mobile International Dialing

    Verizon Wireless Customer Agreement

    Then again, maybe you're unable to figure it out for a reason?

    Interestingly, each carrier has the exact same rates for calls to American Samoa on their International plans. Without a plan, Sprint is cheapest, VZW/AT&T tied for most expensive and T-Mobile falling in-between.

    Only a dope would sit here & argue - as if we can do anything about your oversights - is it because your carrier told you to pound sand?

    By the way, I never once claimed to be an employee of Verizon Communications, Verizon Wireless or Vodaphone International. Maybe your ability to read & comprehend should be called into question?

    I am just a lowly contractor who helps get that signal to your handset, no matter what carrier.
