Does anyone here live in the upstate of S. Carolina, if so are you having problems with verizon. I can call to another verizon phone and sometimes it will hook me up with an alltel customer. I've talked with verizon about it and they said alltel has done something to their towers. It's really getting on my nerves. Verizon said the problem would be fixed Aug. 1st. 2nd problem why does my v3m never have the verizon banner across the top of the phone? Is it because of the problem verizon is having? Please Help If Ya'll Can.
