Verizon keep charging for MBs I do not use. The phone is showinng 0.001 MB use every day early in the morning. I know I did not try to connect to the web or I use my phone as a computer. This is a duty trick from Verizon to charge additional money. How can I stop that practice?

    Do you have the Backup Assistant on your phone? If you have this, around 12:30 AM or so, it sends all of your contact information to a database to keep as a backup for you. If you do not have a data plan, this transfer would be chargable.

Have them block the data feature from your line of service. They should have offered to do this for you the first time you called regarding data usage you denied using. Some phones (what is your phone), depending on their type and capabilities, will access the web whether you tell them to or not. If you use picture mail, you would likely lose this ability when you block data (I am not 100% familiar with Verizon's billing system capabilities so maybe not). If this does not solve the issue then they should reset the password for your data resource. Sometimes if you get a recycled phone number you may incur data charges from recurring data instances that were initiated by the previous owner of that number. Resetting the resource password will stop these charges. If these two options are not available to you, they should be crediting your account provide you truely arent using these services.

My computer can not connect to internet due to a lightning damaged my modem and my lan port, i need to replace the damaged components but i don'nt have the electrical drawing for my g45m03 motherboard.

The MB manufacturers will not supply them either. You have two options, get a new MB or if you have expansion slots, buy a new LAN NIC and modem card. Most MBs use miniturized components these days, and many MBs are multi-layered. Unless you possess specialized soldering equipment and training, motherboard repair is beyond the scope of end users.

My casio gz boulder phone will not charge with new chargers that i have purchased. Have seen online that there is a cradle that can be purchased.Help!!

Hi, it's a common known problem that this phone's internal charging system FAILS after about 4-12 months...I have to literally tie a rubber band to the charger's "line" while the phone is being charged to get it to work. (You know--when the red light comes on it's charging--so you have to get the charger line in a certain place & keep it there so it will work.) A real pain in the ***--I'm 17 days from an upgrade--which sux, because I like this phone other than this. Of course, verizon no longer sells it--probably for this very reason. Good luck & just keep the phone as "still" as you can when it's charging. Oh, and I have the charger cradle--that was the first thing to GO as far as charging. I WON'T WORK AT ALL....

It keeps turning on and off and wont charge at all i plug it it in turn off and wont connect to the charger at all its weird it came out of no where

mine started doing that soon after i first got it. i didn't think about it being the charger considering it was brand new, so i delt with it until i got a cheap charger from walmart.. it somewhat fixed it for a couple days so i called verizon and they sent me a new phone twice before i finally took it to the nearest store 45 minutes away.. they tested it with the original charger, and that was what the problem turned out to be. the usb cord had messed up and started interfering with the phone.. try getting a new charger from the verizon store and see it if helps. mine has been fixed now but the chargers keep getting shorts in them. i started buying just cheap ones and using them for my regular charging so they don't cost as much to replace and using the one i got from verizon with the usb port to put in my computer when i import/export stuff. i hope this was at least somewhat helpful to your problem.

I cracked the inside screen and verizon wont give me a new phone and i dont have insurance.

ohhh bad deal there one thing verizon has is the early upgrade which if you are one year into your contract you can pay 20.00 plus the two year sale price for any phone of your choice in return for a new two year agreement if you arent that far in yet and have more than a month remaining to get there I would suggest goign to ebay or amazon and buying one at retail price used you can generally get them much cheaper than verizons retail price and they dont require a contract or if you have any friends or family members with old phones they might sell you cheap til you can hit the ine year mark or keep calling if you are about a month away try to get the little rock center and tell them you want to talk to walter complain complain complain and they may go ahead and let you over ride early also if this line was previously an alltel phone number you can go back to your alltel plan and phone at any time on just this line if you like temporarily just a tip the number one feature to always have with cell phones before txt mins anything is insurance ost phones cost avg 400 to 800 retail

minimum $10 data plan with some new feature phones
It appears that users who buy one of nine phones — dubbed “3G multimedia” handsets — will have to sign up for one of two data plans: 25MB a month for a whopping $10 (that’s 40 cents a MB) or an unlimited option that will reportedly replace the current 75MB plan for $30 (also 40 cents a MB). That’s right, Verizon thinks 1 MB is worth slightly less than a 44-cent postage stamp. The plans are substantially pricier than AT&T’s $15-a-month unlimited web add-on for feature phones — which, of course, is optional — and follows moves by both Verizon and AT&T to require data plans with all new smartphone purchases

More importantly, the requirement and suggested data plans may signal Verizon’s plans to raise data fees for users on the LTE network it will begin to deploy this year. Verizon last week said LTE users will incur a basic subscriber fee plus usage charges based on bandwidth consumption. If the rumored price hike is any indication of what it will cost to use the 4G network, the carrier may not ever have to deal with the kind of congestion issues that AT&T has suffered due to the iPhone simply because no one will be able to afford it

Easier way, but not entirely correct is to think of 1000 kbs = 1 Mb

97286 kbs equals roughly 97 Mbs

The Blink Of Death!

well, the cause is definately a software issue...what caused it is hard to say. could be physical or moisture damage, but if u are certain that is not the issue, the phone can be replaced under the warranty if u have had it less than a year, or if u have the extended warranty. if it is damaged or out of warranty, you can use ur insurance, if you have it.
