I wanted to get something cleared up. I know people have been talking
about waiting for new promotions next year but they are not supposed
to start till February right. I think I remember reading that the M2m
promotions that Verizon has been offering for many months now is
supposed to end Feb 1st or towards the end of January. The only
promotions that may end or that are off and on are deal on phones. And
the only thing that will be new is the Federal/Verizon law saying that
we can't use a certain type of phone starting January 1, 2004.
Correct. If I am right about the promotion thing wouldn't it take
awhile for Verizon to give a new deal? I know last
winter/Christmas/new years/ sprint had been offering 300 minutes and
unlimited NW for $30-$35 dollars. Somewhere around April they were
offering 300 minutes and only 1000 NW minutes. Now the unlimited is
back again but that was after more than 5 months. Between that time
Sprint did not offer too many promotions besides vision or that 500
minutes plan for 45 dollars which I felt was not really a good deal.
Based on that I would not expect Verizon to come out with another
serious promotion. What do you all think/know?

BZZZZT...incorrect. If that's true, Bagphone Larry is in a whole lot
of trouble in one week!
You're thinking of VZW - presumably following some sort of federal
guideline - not selling/activating non-GPS phones on new accounts
after 1/1/04 (or whatever the date is).

Hey, Cueball, your headers don't say what you use as a news reader, but
would you please set it up to post with the usual conventions? You know,
limit the length of a line to no more than 80 characters (some people do
less), put a symbol in front of each line of quoted text (the most common
is > , but some use : or | or even - ), etcetera.
You may notice that where I've quoted you below, there is only one >.
That's because your whole post is one line. If I didn't have my reader set
to wrap to fit in the window, I'd have to scroll sideways to read it.
And the previous post not being marked as quoted is very confusing.
On Thu, 01 Jan 2004 16:52:45 GMT, "Cueball" <Cueball@sidepocket.com> chose
to add this to the great equation of life, the universe, and everything:
>effective 12-31-03 non-GPs enabled handsets cannot not be used to activate a new account unless the phone is Owned by the person activating the phone. Furthermore NO new prepaid accounts can be actiavted with a NON-GPS enabled phone, even if the comsume
r already owns the phone. FCC is going to fine VZW $500 each occurence. In addition "bagphone" will not be in trouble as long as he is an existing customer.
