    You can't get a Verizon phone to connect to your pc. You download music through Vcast and not from your pc. Lose the phone, lose the music and you are screwed.

    I wasn't impressed with the UI. A better iPhone killer is either the HTC Touch or Tilt. Not only that, but verizon's UI bogs it down with all of that vCrap.

    Verizon has great reception, but its service is overpriced and it has a horrible phone selection. No thanks!

    Well, there's your first problem. Don't buy music through Vcast. Chances are you already own the music that you want to have on your phone. If so, take the microSD card out of your phone, put it into your computer or card reader and drag whatever files (i.e. music, pictures, videos, ringtones that you've made) onto your microSD and you're all set.

    You do have to make sure that you put the files in the right spot on your card but that's easy enough if your halfway computer savvy...

    not true... all VZW VCast music phones have cables that come with them that connect them to your computer. You can do as the other poster said and take the memory card, and plug it into your computer, or plug your phone in directly, and load your own, unprotected music into the phone via their Verizon Music program thingie...

    I have my phone loaded with 2gb of stuff off my PC, none of it paid for through Verizon.

    Iphone runs off the EDGE network... 2g...

    Verizon Wireless' 3G network runs way faster... especially good for using the web.

    yeah, especially with the ugly interface they make their phone providers add to the phone! YUCK!

    if it allows me to drag and drop like that would it allow me to do the same with home made ringtones and wallpapers?

    ***edit : just saw another post that pretty much answers this. Damn. I just resigned with T-Mobile for 2 years because I lost my phone two weeks ago. I contemplated switching to Verizon but their service is just too expensive. Oh well, on the bright side I love my Blackberry Pearl. I'll be good with it until they come out with a Pearl that has WiFi calling. My only complaint with T-Mobile is that the reception sucks inside my house. With WiFi that will no longer be a problem for me.

    It sure would. You just have to make sure that the ringtones are the right size and format. Once the wallpaper(picture) is on your phone, you can choose that picture and set it as your wallpaper.

    Hmm unlock for Sprint? Oh well my Centro does everything I want and it only cost me $99 with a $100 mail in rebate. If you know how to scream at Sprint right they'll give you anything you want.
