    Welcome to the forum! :D

    About the videos, I don't get it, either. It's something to do with video codecs, and the formats that they're stored in. I read somewhere that YouTube is re-encoding all their videos in a format that's supposed to be Android-compatibe ... but they do have a lot of videos, so odds are slim that what WE want to see has been handled.

    It'll sort itself out sooner or later, just don't hold your breath waiting for it. :eek:

    (BTW, just in case your 2nd post was intended to improve visibility - it's likely having the opposite effect. There's a function to search for threads that don't have any responses yet, and double-posting effectively causes that search to miss your thread. Now you now. ;))

    You mean, watch on the phone? If so, then yes that's probably codec related. I can't say much more than that because I really am no expert on these matters. :eek:

    The phone comes with Flash LITE, not full flash, so not all flash videos will play on it. Personally, I would say about 60% of the content I try is accessible. As far as the youtube issue, I have never run into it (and I use youtube a lot) My guess is that it is a network issue, or a bug with the phone you got. Call VZW and see what they say.
