VZW Pro

Listen, we all know that the VZW Pro is gimped. You knew before you bought it that the Sprint version was jacked and yours was gimped. So why are you complaining? I see people complaining about speed and memory left and right! To put it simply the Verizon Pro sucks. You knew this! If you wanted you could have switched to Sprint, but you just sit there and complain. It is like wanting to go to a fancy restaurant and going to McDonalds knowing that it is a fast food place.

Re: VZW Pro

Good point, hibby.

This thread, however, will probably be merged or locked =[

The thing is though that most VZW users aren't defending the Pro. They know their Pro is subpar. I think its more of a carrier loyalty thing.

Re: VZW Pro

there is a difference between it being slightly gimped and it being laggy as HELL which without tweaks, it really is.

i cant wait to see some of the big websites review this phone (why isnt there one yet?)

Probably because VZW paid them off...

All attention is on the BB Storm

Re: VZW Pro

This is the reason I jumped ship and went to sprint. $99 for simply everything helped too.

For me it's not Carrier loyalty.

For me personally it's because the wife works there and you cant beat the Employee Discount. For others it's "The Network" you may scoff but when I had Sprint, I did lose allot of calls in fringe areas. And for some it could be their company is with VZW and they have no choice.

Yes we know the VZW version is gimped. We have no choice in the matter. Unless you have funds coming out of your arse to buy at full price a unlocked TP and put the VWW radio ROM on it, but are screwed if it breaks. We have little or no choice in the matter.

Now in a previous post....this is what PPCGeeks is about.....a carrier locked and gimped a phone....lets put away the Carrier animosity and get this thing cracked so those of us that have to use it...can enjoy it allot more!

Re: VZW Pro

there's not much to be done
everyone knew the gimped version and still bought it
see this is what doesn't make sense. If you're spending xxx amount on this, you may want to hit up craigslist or ebay
then again even I want a new phone from vzw and the samsung omnia would make a great media player...but not a phone

Great words - but why do I have to spend a weekend (or longer) loading a ROM and getting my phone to a point where it should have been released in the first place? Most people in here probably don't mind doing that, and see it more as a challenge and dare I say even fun? However, the majority of people are not going to load a different ROM much less "tweak" their phone in order to get it to work "decently"!
