    This question may need to be directed to our friendly VZW reps - thought I'd ask it here, since my account rep is out of the office & the wait time on 611 is over 6 minutes right now. I hate waiting in queue and I've not yet received my first bill to check it myself.

    Friends & Family - the numbers you designate for unlimited calls. Does it include calls FROM those numbers or only origininating from the wireless handset to the designated number?

    There's actually a secret sequence. See, what you have to do, to get the unlimited call is to send a text to the person first (if its a cell phone) and then call them for one minute, then when they call you back it's considered unlimited. I know, there's always a catch with this draconian company Verizon.

    It is. I just got off the phone with a nice soul @ 611.

    She told me that what 'Bum said isn't true at all, but that the number calling you has to have the digit "5" in it and cannot be a Sprint number. Something about the Sprint PTT network fouling up the works.

    Don't feel bad - I had a sinking feeling into the first sentence of 'Bum's reply.

    Then my leg felt similar to yours.

    lol revenge of ankle biting dog.

    I knew all along it was joke as I have been working with F&F since came out. the only number you cannot put in for in calling are 411, your VM, 900 numbers, and international numbers

    Up to ten on a family share plan

    No, no, no - my rep told me it was six numbers per line and seven during odd months with a full moon that ended on Monday and up to ten if you called AT&T & said something nasty to them.

    Read the company memos, Scott!

    While I don't remember exactly, I think you may be right. He kept putting me on hold to change bedpans or something.

    He also said I'd be getting a huge settlement from VZW for me having to suffer through not having GPS on my Moto brick phone with Airtouch 20+ years ago. I thought that was very charitable!

    I also heard from the same rep that because Verizon can afford it, they will be giving everyone free service for a year. I mean, because they should just do that. They agree they shouldn't make a profit.

    This just in!

    With all the money VZW is raking in from locking GPS and selling VZNav at ripoff prices, all VZW employees are getting a $250,000 stimulus check, along with massages from scantily-clad geisha girls paid for by LG & Samsung.

    Never mind the fact Koreans & Japanese hate each other.

    Oh, don't forget the employee kickback of a percentage of the overcharges that VZW screws their 80 million stupid customers with each month.

    And I almost forgot that the way VZW is paying for Friends & Family is by strong-arming RIM into leaving WiFi off of Sprint BlackBerrys.

    Never forget - VZW is responsible for the holocaust, the inquisition and gave birth to Joseph Stalin, Idi Amin & Genghis Khan.

    You know too that without VZW, Jesus wouldn't have been crucified, the black plague would've never happened & JFK, MLK, RFK, Lincoln, Elvis & Janis would all still be with us.

    I just want my free BlackBerry service without a data plan & I want it now!!!
