Windows App Charges

Just a quick question, Is there an option for me not to use a credit card and instead redirect the app payments directly to my Verizon account?

Unfortunately no, billing goes through Microsoft via your Live account that you set up with the phone. This has a few advantages, not the least of which is that you get to see your purchases from w/in Zune and can re-download/install any of your past applications. You can also purchase apps right on the web and they're automatically pushed straight to your phone.

 

the lack of VZW support for WP7 that was evident from the day that the Verizon CTO said they weren't interested in WP7. I saw it coming then. Just walk in to any VZW store and ask about the Trophy; the reps give you a one-word answer and walk away - they could care less. If you post a question about a Droid you get a response before day's end, though.

 

Alas this is something we'll be dealing with until VZW realizes the revolution that's been started by WindowsPhone. Nokia's new hardware is going to blow everything out of the water and rumor has it VZW is going to be getting one. For now my recommendation for anybody w/ a windows phone (on any carrier) is to search & participate on useful forums like WPCentral, WMPowerUser, etc.

 

When I walk in to a VZW store and ask about HTC Trophy Accessories and am met with anything but "we don't have any *poof*" I'll change my post.

 

If anybody has any question about WindowPhone or the HTC Trophy please just contact me directly via these boards and I will help you out in record time (compared to VZW :smileywink:)

You're beating last year's drum.  A year has changed his tune.  No, we don't see any real change yet, but it will come.

Verizon spiffs create a scenario where the robot-like salespeople push whatever gathers the highest commission to store/manager/self.

 

Nokia seems hungry enough and i'd have to think Microsoft's abject neglect of CDMA/Verizon is due to long term plans for Nokia to do a CDMA phone like the Ace/9000 4.3" likely LTE which WOULD finally create a device verizon would pimp, push and promote.

 

Other than locking you into a contract - mostly based on FUD coverage issues and/or existing family plan contracts - Verizon has no concern for you as a customer. don't believe me just threaten to leave and see what they do other than say "have a nice day good bye".
