Re: All other search providers removed: required to use bing

This should definitely be reverted.  It should be able choice.  Verizon made a statement about a year ago that they were going to be more open with their phones.  I guess that wasn't true.

Well,

 

I think I will call them today and let them know what they can do with my wife's BB and service (it involves a place where the sun dont shine).

 

While I am at it, I should remind that I am a BES Admin with 130 phones in our organization, coming up on a contract negtiation soon.  If I can get put through to a retention mamager, remind them that this can be considered anticompetive practive and ask them how they would like an antitrust lawyer breathing down there backs.

I see MS getting another Antitrust suit just like the one they just had and lost over IE. Now MS has to provide a pop up to everyone offering the links to other web browsers. When will they ever learn? Verizon are you paying attention?????

I just emailed HQExec.Relations@VerizonWireless.com this below. I would encourage everyone else to do the same....

 

Hola:

I recently switched from Verizon, and have generally been pleased with the service, support and my new BlackBerry Storm2 device. Earlier today I notice that my preexisting search engine choices had all been removed from the BlackBerry browser and that Bing was my only choice. After calling support and Googling this issue (which turned up this article), it appears that Verizon Wireless has intentionally crippled my device and not only made Bing the default search engine, but removed ALL the other search engines including Google and Wikipedia. Yes, I realize that I can enter www.google.com and search directly from the Google website, but that is an entirely unacceptable workaround for what should not be an in the first place. This is a mobile device with a limited on-screen keyboard, and being able to access something as basic as the ubiquitous Google search engine in as few keystrokes as possible is absolutely crucial. Although I have been generally happy with Verizon in the few weeks I have been with your company, this is a deal breaker. What is more worrisome is that it may be indicative of a general trend. What if next week Verizon Wireless decides that they no longer like Google Maps and limit me to paying for VZ Navigator? What if the week after that Verizon decides I shouldn't be able to use Pandora and forces me to use Slacker? This is an unacceptable business practice, and as your own attorneys can tell you, by selling a device with a certain set of features and later removing those features you are also exposing Verizon Wireless to a great deal of product liability. I will be terminating my service and returning my BlackBerry before the end of my trial period if this is not corrected before then.

This is **bleep**. I noticed the Bing icon on my phone. I cannot remove it. I cannot uninstall it in the applications list or in the App World.

 

I click I DO NOT AGREE and it still persists on my phone. If I do not agree to the terms, should it not immediately be removed?

Returned my Storm 2 today.  My next move is to cancel mine and my families contracts.  You know I liked those AT&T commercials.  But after this, I will likely be on AT&T service, along with the rest of my family.

 

There are some jackhole, holier than thow **bleep** at Verizon wearing those blue suits that think they own us (the customer).  Well, that is not the case.  I voted today with my wallet.  Those blue suits should be wearing orange suits instead, if you know what I mean.  They have violated a trust with the customer (yet again).
