So, in August, I was due for an update to my cell phone. I ran to the mall, and lo and behold! the Verizon Voyager! I demoed it at the store, and it was beautiful. Like the iPhone^2. Full touch screen, MP3 player, internet, AIM, touch screen and full QWERTY keyboard.

I buy it and head home, happy with my new purchase. However, something happened.

Something unexpected.

Something evil.

Something unknown.

Slowly, the silver paint began to chip off around the edges. This wouldn't be a big deal if the phone was even months old, but a week is a little ridiculous.

Today, I look at my phone, and see a strange mark on the screen. Both the inside and outside screen had a huge blue streak on them. The LCD screen broke, and the pigment crystals have leaked.

This phone ($600 without the upgrade discount) has lasted me at most 3 1/2 months.

I'm furious.

Does the Pit have any stories on shoddy electronics? (inb4RRoD)

Everyone I know with a voyager hates it after the first week, so you're not the only one.
all I ever wanted was to pick apart the day
put the pieces back together my way

I've had Ipods that froze on me and wouldn't comply with my reboot commands... Other than that nothing.

That happened to me the other day. I just let the battery run out and then plugged it into my computer and voila.

...modes and scales are still useless.

phones don't just fall apart. You had to abuse it in some way.

No, it had a protective case on it and everything. I don't abuse technology.

It abuses me

Doesn't it have a warranty?

It does, but it just happened today, so I haven't gotten the chance.

When I upgraded my contract phone, I went from a k800i to a c902. The c902 lasted me 2 months it broke because it got damp in my pockets. I even canceled the insurance as I got the new phone. Bad times. Back to the 2 year old k800i

There, that's better.
I'm sorry, complain to the customer service reps. Maybe they'll get you some coupons. (it really does suck.)

my LG Chocolate is one of the most durable phones I've owned


same, sadly that is its only good point (other than being very very pretty).

and to whoever said about going 'back' to a k800i, i wish my k800i still worked, it didn't annoy the hell out of me, had a decent camera, and the battery lasted more than a day.
You're using UG classic, congratulations.

Verizon's insurance plan = $50 for new phone

My Voyager has been fine and I've had it for about 4 months.

Sidekick 3 For teh loss!!! That thing sucked, you had to carry it like it was made out of matchsticks and lighter fluid, and the one time I dropped it, I was on the can and my bathroom floor was carpeted, guess what? The headphone jack broke! Luckily, I sold that btch on craigslist for $200, so its all good.

On that note, my blackberry pearl is awesome, I wish I got the Q1 or whatever it is, they cost about the same :-(


edit* RAZR V3s (the old ones in other words) can take a fkn nuke to the screen and still work, mine lasted 4 years and the only reason I upgraded is because i used it for pron ONCE and I got a virus on my phone

My Sony Ericsson w910i ****ed up after 4 or 5 months, had to open it and close it just for people to hear me talk (its a sliding phone) and when I try to see my text message inbox it said 'Command Failed'

new one has more than 50 dead pixels easy but it works and will upgrade in april.

Good thing you're not a mod. Don't judge a thread on the name of the thread, but the content of the post.
