Default Anyone use the voice recorder on the V3c

I have have a Verizon V3c (Razr) for almost two months now and just
today tried to use the voice recorder. I'm getting older and just
can't remember things as well as I used to.

Did verizon cripple this feature like all the other features, or is it
just burried in the GUI?

I can record a message - just press and hold the voice dialing button.
I just can't understand how to play back what I have recorder.

This is very frustrating. Help me please.

If anyone from Verizon reads this please take a moment to understand
that I loath each and every one of you. You take quality phones and
cripple them. Next you sell them to customers who believe that they
will do as the manufacturer advertises. Is that how you would want to
be treated?

Thanks for the quick answer.

As to the rant, it is not about this issue in particular.

My issue with verizon is that they cripple features of the phone and
don't bother to tell the customer about it. They let you believe that
you are buying the same phone as other carriers are selling.

This is an example. Verizon uses their own GUI on this phone. The
manual doesn't explain how to use the voice recorder (I checked the
index and it isn't even mentioned). You must admit that it is burried
in the phones functionality. They could have made it easier to find.
Of course, the could have just left the UI alone in the first place.

Why can't I transfer my own music, pix, ringtones, etc to my phone w/o
paying Verizon to do it? Every other carriers version of this phone
allows it (of course, mine does too now that I hacked the phone). The
point is that I shouldn't have to pay verizon to put a picture or
ringtone on my own phone. The phone is mine. I paid for it. This
will be my last Verizon phone. By the time I'm ready for another, I am
certain that other carriers will have networks as good or better than
Verizon's. The only difference is that they won't take good products
and disable features so they can then sell those features back to the
customer.

Thanks again for answering my question.

All I can figure is that they think the upside of making money off selling
pictures, ringtones, etc. is better than the downside of ****ing off a few
customers. Probably the percentage of their customers who actually want to
move pictures and ringtones around on their own is pretty small and the
number who will bitch about not being able to do it is even smaller.

But I feel as you do: if I did not have other good reasons for sticking with
Verizon, I would move on, too, just because I also find their attitude in
this regard arrogant and irritating. But -- in this market, Verizon
reception is by far the best, their customer service is pretty good, my
phone works very well, and my wife has Verizon, so all our calls don't come
off our "anytime" minutes. Not going to cut off my nose to spite my face,
even though it might be a little satisfying.

Mack,

What you said. 100%.

But----my take on this is that---- Verizon is currently the Goliath,
generally speaking, of the wireless world. In the future, should we find
that Cingular or someone else has improved their coverage and customer
service to come up to the level of where VZW is now,
customers will start bailing to get more peak minutes, snazzier
non-"optimized" (snicker) phones, and the moment that defection hits some
critical mass number, VZW will be forced to respond.

In short, until that happens, they are sticking it to us in LITTLE ways
simply because they can.

I say LITTLE ways because the AVERAGE cellphone user wouldn't know OBEX from
OB/GYN. Joe/Jane Average Cellphone User is 30-55 yrs old and needs the phone
to stay in touch with the office/family (which Verizon delivers on pretty
well), or is 11-21 years old and could care less how much extra Daddy pays
for VCrap or Get-It-In-the-Rump-Now. They aren't paying the bill. The
average Daddy today is so grateful his kids will talk to him, he isn't about
to argue about an extra $40 on the cellphone bill.

If we maintain our perspective here, we remember that Verizon has, what, 10
million customers?? If one-out-of-a-hundred VZW customers posted here,
Usenet couldn't handle the load. We are a little tiny portion of a small
percentage of the big picture.

If you don't believe me, ask the next 10 cellphone users you see what
Bluetooth features are missing on Verizon phones. You're gonna get a lot of
blank stares. Don't even start asking about SIDs or PRL's. They don't even
know those terms at the Verizon stores!!
