Sure -- but there is one problem that nobody seems to want to bring up.

My boss is thrilled that he's getting 384Kbps on his Treo 650 but
there is one vexing problem that both he and I run into with our
Verizon phones.

Several times per week you'll punch in a number, press send and watch
the display on your phone do its little dance but never be connected.
Press end, dial again and press send and the same song and dance.

They are over-subscribed in the metro areas of New England.
