    Verizon Rep: WIll be All Smartphones & Blackberry

    Hello! I am currently a verizon customer for over 10 years. My Env3 has been shutting off by itself and verizon will not give me a replacement since my contract has been up for 2 years. At the verizon store they only had 2 phones that didn't require the $29.99 data package. I asked her when more phones would be available. She told me she just got told by her district manager that verizon is no longer going to make messaging and basic phones. That it will just be dataphones and blackberries and you would be required to pay the $29.99. Has anyone else heard of this happening?

    I am not one who will use the data package. So it makes no sence to get it. I am looking into At&t. I would like someone to confirm that this is true or if I will be making a mistake with stwitching because its not true.

    Go online and pick out a phone. If you don't like it just return it.
    Technically what you wrote down is correct. Verizon will not be making any messaging or basic phones. They will still be selling messaging and basic phones though.

    O yes they will, dont lie to the poor guy unless you have proof.
    My motto as a VERIZON agent- Treat the customer the way you want to be treated, if you treat them like crap dont complain when they treat you like crap. If I lose a sale I dont lose sleep over it I move on. Some people never buy from my store oh well $10 transfer fee. Some people are mad at the world, doesnt affect me.

    Please read again what he said. VZW will not be making any messaging or basic phones. That does not mean they won't sell any. VZW is not a manufacturer. It was a joke.

    No. Just no.
    Also..at&t requires text packages on their quick messaging devices, so same difference if you don't text a ton.

    Technically, Verizon will not be making any phones. Verizon brands phones (even the phones "made" by Verizon were just re-branded devices).

    the 9.99 data plans on 3G multimedia phones are going away starting with the new phones (one is replacing the enV3).
