Makes for a very frustrated woman! I got the phone in June. I LOVED it when I first got it. Everything worked great, reception, dialing, 3G, and all my notifications! The last 2 weeks have been horrible. My 3g isn't lit up, therefor I can't post on FB, send out or recieve email, and when I do get email coming in I get NO notification, on either of my accounts... GMAIL or YAHOO... And it takes me 20 min to make a phone call, and eventually it dials when it feels like it. I called Verizon and spent 3 hours, yes 3 hours on the phone with customer care/tech support. They couldn't figure out what the heck was going on, so of course they sent out a new phone! I received the 2nd phone, and this one is the same if not worse! I get NO 3g signal, and I get an X over my reception bars etc. And I still can't post to FB or anything! and NO notifications still. I called Verizon again tonight, and they really pissed me off... I did everything he told me to do, factory restore etc, and it still isnt working right. And of course he wanted to send out a new phone again.. ( well refrubished... what BS!) ... im tired of switching phones, and i've only had the phone since June 19. I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO over it... if you use yahoo what app do u use? ... does it notify you?? .. does anyone else have these issues?!?!?!
