Default Petition VERIZON to Enable FULL GPS (JOIN THE FIGHT NOW)

Please Login to Remove!

I think we Verizon 8703e and 7130E users are pretty pissed off to hear that Sprint is allowing their customers to use the feature but Verizon is not. I think we can get a pretty substantial petition to present to Verizon...


whadya say guys?

I'm sure they will offer it as soon as they figure out how to overcharge for it

Yeah, if that's the case, they would have had it enabled already. They do not need any time or any help figuring out how to overcharge for something...They've got that down to an art form...

Is it possible that a sprint service book would enable it on VZ?

Hmmm..interesting question...I would love to give it a shot, but I'm not sure if it would work, I think Verizons system would have to allow it...

I'll add this to the laundry list of complaints that I typically send out to my VZW Corp. Acct. Rep every time I receive a new product. So far, this list is small..just two items. Lack of GPS Navi capability, and the inability to silence keypresses when dialing the phone (even with all sound disabled).

You should have seen the list I sent in when I returned the Q 3 days after it launched.... It had at least 20 serious complaints/issues!

Edit: If we're lucky, someone will find some VZW promotional stuff indicating the GPS functionality..... If that's the case, maybe there will be another class action suit like there was with the v710 when they advertised full Bluetooth compatibility and then decided to cripple OBEX.

That problem with the touch tones when dialing is definitely annoying too.
