    i generally don't like people advertising that they're VZW employees...the few that are on here AND capable of forming coherent thoughts are at risk of losing their jobs...then again i've learned quite a bit since i quit so maybe it's for the better?

    Uh... Did I ever say that it wasn't wireless? I think ppl in the other thread said it was VZcomm but it doesnt in this thread? And just because I say that my callcenter is hiring the **** out of people makes me think we aren't layin off here. But that doesn't mean I'm not posting responsibly.

    No need to read any of those... I get emails from higher ups that let me know where VZW stands. I don't care what happens to VZ Com bc that doesn't affect me directly.

    When you say verizon around people assume it is wireless and that would be the only reason to post it here. We don't see people post about GM layoffs. I am saying that you should post that it is VZ communications because they are 2 different companies and it is not responsible to intentionally misrepresent which company is laying people off especially when you supposedly work for one of the companies.

    Also to another point look at the title of your thread. Verizon Wireless is getting the Pre and Verizon Communications is getting rid of 8000 employees. How are people not to assume that you mean wireless?

    Dude, are you posting from work? You should really check the forums from your phone man. Opera Mini FTW. Not that they will trip about it, but still. I've gleaned some info from the forums every now and then but just to hang out and chat? Tsk Tsk.

    Be careful.

    Ahh okay. Well, I worked for the State of CA for awhile and one day when I was surfing the net on my lunch, the IT dept remotely took over my PC just to mess with me. They then told my super that I was surfing the net during "work hours" (lunch break) and I got reprimanded. It was pretty lame. They were like, "you've used so and so bandwidth and here are the sites you visited". It was a bunch of CNN and phonescoop and such. Nothing even warranting making a big deal about. Ok, just wanted to give you a heads up.

    About the phone being out, Are you tech support? If they ask, just say it's related to the call haha. Just kidding. Then I suppose you couldn't pay attention to the person on the other end or their account.

    Yeah the recently pulled a bunch of our access to other sites but we use crackberry all the time so its allowed. I txt at work and I give them that excuse when they tell me to put it away. I'm tech supoprt but we have emulators though of every phone we offer(for the most part) that we can use on the pc...

    Thisis true, but sometime the emulators do not go as deep as I would like to go. We also have equipment lockers that have actual devices we an use. is a pain though, have to place a customer on hold, walk across the center, which is huge to get the EQ. I rarelt have to this as I am quite familier with most equipment.

    I played with a Pre yesterday and when you slide the screen up to access the keyboard, the edges will just about cut you they are very sharp. And it feels verrrry cheaply made b/c of this. Cheap thin sharp plastic. never had a phone that could cut me before.lol

    The guy said some choice stuff it was a long time ago and the guy was doing basically what you said not to. Posted confidential info, and the situation(as i recall) was someone badmouthing verizon and he said I'm(insert name here) my rep id is(666) and you are a... and the guy went off. So he just branded his post with a vzw badge.
