Default New 7130e bricked so soon????

Please Login to Remove!

I received a new 7130e from Verizon Wireless today. I had to call in to do a manual activation due to it kept picking up Alltel's network during the auto activation. During that they had me remove my battery to verify the ID on the back. When I put the battery back in I got the white screen that read "Data Abor..." RESET. It was stuck there for good. They are over nighting me a new phone out.

Wow.I'm sorry that happened to you. The 7130e is a good phone. That's what I have with Verizon. Good luck with the new one.

Thanks. The support guy said he would rather just send me a new one out than try to work that one out.

I'm sure this was just a fluke as overall the 7130 series are very good models. I have a 7130c and it's been very reliable and fun to use. Even though I have an 8700c and had a new Pearl, I really like the 7130 the best.

The only reason I sold the Pearl is that the keyboard was just too small for me. I handle over 100 emails a day and could not live with the keyboard. Otherwise that was also a very good model.

Sounds like Verizon is really treating you right by sending a new one overnight. Let us know how it's going once you get your new phonel

Cheers.....

Verizon is treating me right - for sure! The phone didn't come yesterday - I didn't think it would make it. I got off the phone with them later in the afternoon on Tuesday.

I know the disappointment when that happens as I order a lot of phones and sometimes they come when promised and somtimes they don't.

Just Remember this, once the phone arrives, you get it setup and begin to enjoy it, you will then forget in a moment, just how long you had to wait.

Let us know once you get it, and how you like it.

Cheers....

I've already tried that and unfortunately my wife just cannot get excited about anything other than her new Pink RAZR...

Got it, activated, and working like a charm. I am amazed at how fast these things get email!

I must admit I find the whole RAZR situation quite interesting myself.

Just out of curiosity why did you send yours back. Likes , dislikes etc?

First I was using Nokia's when they had good build quality and individual keys. Before the "fashion phone days". Then they began to cut back on quality and the plastic bodies would creak, and they started using "rocker" style keys where one key served as two.

So I migrated to the moto flip phone models. Mainly because I have rather large hands and prefer individual buttons to dial the phone, or text. However that said, I did not particularly like the moto phones. So I tried several other brands.

Then the RAZR came out and it appealed to me because it was one of the wider phones which felt very comfortable in my hand for long calls even though when in the car I use BT. The other thing I like about the RAZR, and perhaps I just got lucky is that mine had very good build quality, call quality and after two years It's still in fine shape and works very well. Also it has a great keypad (at least for me) that is well illuminated. Another feature for me is that it is flat with no external antenna. I generally do not like to wear a phone on my belt and during the week I'm in a suit, so this slips in my pocket without looking like a phone in my pocket.

When it comes to marketing obviously they did a good job and my wife likes the PINK RAZR just because it's a fashion phone, its' Pink, and she can also carry it easily. Again, we just got a good one.

So needless to say when I got my first BlackBerry I was really happy as I don't need a phone with a camera (although I would not mind once they get to 3MP or whatever it takes to get decent pictures) and I don't care about music.

Currently I could not be happier with my BlackBerry's as they both meet and exceed my needs.

Cheers....

For those using BIS what are you doing for email? I am having the Blackberry get my email from my own domain - but thinking of going back to GMail for the improved spam filtering. Anyone doing hosted BES?
