Apparently I'm getting a new phone...
The VZW XV6700 (aka UT/Starcom PPC 6700?) keeps on croaking. Usually it's screen-related, but this time the navigation button went "wonky" and tried to "select" every time I "navigated." Needless to say, this makes the phone Much Less Usable. I go through all the triage steps and find out that because this is the 3rd replacement I've needed, I'm getting a new phone under the "three strikes" policy.

So...what are you getting? :) seaniam got a new PDA that he likes, but it's through AT&T so I don't know if Verizon has it. It's a Samsung product.

It's more like a "smart phone." No stylus, no touch screen...we'll see if I can get used to it.

having had one of those, I can say with authority they are known to do random strange stuff.

What's happening to the XV6700?

If you get to keep it, I'd like to buy it off you. I need a 2nd Windows Mobile device for testing. I don't need cell service.

(FWIW, my regular phone is that, and I think it rocks, but MMV's)

IIRC...I had to turn the XV6700 in.
