    Verizion Moto Q9C

    Anyone have any idea when Verizon is to offer the 9C?

    All of the news releases I have read said that it was to be this month.
    Every Verizon representative I have asked about this gets the "deer in the headlights" look and have no clue what a 9C is. I even called a store and asked about it, they said "yep, we have three of them". I stated to them "not the Q9m but the Q9C". "Yep, that's right" they said. So I go there 10 minutes later and get the "deer" look again.

    This past weekend I did get one Verizon person say "yeah, we should get them by the end of the month, but that's just what I heard through the grapevine." So in other words, he had no clue either.

    9c= GPS chipset built in. Don't think 9m has this. (Just one of the differences.)

    why verizon?

    Who actually wants to be on Verizon?

    I had them for a while cause I needed signal in deep valleys of Pennsylvania.
    THEN I racked up a $700 bill in overage charges!! so I went with sprint, and noticed that whenever I'm on roaming, I'm still using Verizon towers, but for WAY less cash.

    I figure, the only people not getting ripped off by Verizon, are those with good family plans or those who signed up years ago and keep getting discounts for loyal patronage.

    Is there any super-secret deal I don't know about?

    (I currently have Sprint SERO 500mins with roadside assistance $34/month)

    overage

    Of course the overage was my fault, it's just that you never know how much yr gonna need to talk. You never know if yr gonna make new friends that want to talk yr ear off. All I'm saying is that sprint is more flexible with this kind of thing.
    I should be more specific.

    My verizon plan was charging 45 cents per minute overage charge which comes out to about 60 cents with all taxes included.
    Use 500 overage minutes = $300

    My Sprint plan charges $5 for each extra 50 minutes (about $6.50 with taxes)
    Use 500 overage minutes = $65
  11. I would take verizon's coverage and c/s over sprints anyday.
    I would take sprints phones and plans over verizon's anyday.

    awesome!
    although i thought it would be GPS enabled...i didnt see that in your review even though it says VZ Navigator...i guess if it had one it has the other
  14. I would jump on this if I didn't have the 9m.......the 9 series blows the original out of the water IMHO.

    I haven't reviewed the 9c yet. It does support VZ Navigator according to Verizon's release.

    Verizon's Q9c is not the same as the other carrier's 9c.
    The hardware between the VZW 9m and the VZW 9c is 100% the same !!!!
    The is ZERO difference.
    The 9c is more "business" w/o the VCast music and with VZNav
    The 9m is more "personal" with the opposite of above.

    The "GPS" for VZNav on the 9c is just cell site triagulation, same as all other VZNav phones.

    Anxious for your review, Chris. Still holding my original Q but think its time to put him out to pasture. This might be the ticket. :laugh2:

    Is the Q9c the same as last year's Sprint Q9c?

    I just get better phone reception with Verizon. The coverage in my state is better.

    I was on SunCom previously and was ready to re-up but the phone customer service girl was a real Biotch so I told her to kiss it and switched. They called for a while begging me to come back and even offered to pay the penalty.

    Anybody know if the silicone cases ($2.97 each) advertised on verizon website will fit the extended battery? What does Verizon charge for shipping on of these puppies, website won't tell me until after I enter CC info, which is pretty dumb.TIA.
  20. the cases stink..get something else.
