    My phone (2nd phone, 2nd SIM) just had the mic problem resurface late last week. I kept the phone despite the 15th coming and going, then had the problem again today while talking to my grandmother. Totally frustrated, I headed back to Verizon.

    For now, they are telling me something I saw posted on one of the forum threads: I am supposed to dial ### (send) immediately after I drop a call for the next 5 times it happens, and then call tech support back. Apparently I was added to an open ticket for this issue that they are still trying to resolve per feedback from all users experiencing the issue. I don't know if you can just jump on the bandwagon and press ### when it happens to you or if you need to call tech support first and get on the "official list".

    I made sure they noted on my account that despite loving the phone in every other way, I simply can't have a phone that doesn't handle calls. If the problem persists, I'm going to have to deal with the GB Sense UI on the Rezound. Not my preference although playing with it today in the store, it's not a horrible phone aside from the UI and lack of ICS.

    HELP!

    I tried to setup a corporate email and now my home screen is asking for a password to unlock the phone.:(

    I have no clue how to unlock the phone, I tried different passwords that may have been used to set up the account.

    You may need to flash again if you don't know which password was used.

    The one that is not allowed to be spoken of because it is technically using a service that Verizon wants you to pay for. I only use it when I don't have a USB cord OR if I need a file off my dinc that can't wait.

    there is an official vzw general tethering discussion thread here on AF. not sure if Phases chimed in or if the other mods clarified... you're allow to talk about tethering apps, in fact they encourage you to talk about the topic. they don't want us talking about how to do it or how to get it or linking to ways to get it, etc.

    Is my understanding correct that WIRED tethering apps like PDANet are okay (they're still on the Market and working) but it's the WIRELESS tethering that's poo-pooed upon? :confused:

    I want to make sure I'm running on good data here...

    I believe that is correct; the former does not violate Verizon's terms of service, but the latter does.

    No technically any theathering that is not paid for to Verizon is against the terms of service
