PLEASE PLEASE, can someone help. I tried Verizon 2 times, and they are insisting that a palm centro is a smartphone. Has anyone done it recently? They say that its no longer possible.
Does anyone have a contact that can do it for me?

You thinks 2 times is HUCA??
With calling 4-5 times you're not eligible to even say the words that you 'tried getting approved'.
HUCACACACACACACACACACACACA!
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I know someone who actually asked a guy at verizon for his direct number once the he found someone to do it for him. The fact is that it is allowed, but you'll have to do a lot of HUCA.

He agreed with me that it WAS allowed. He says its no longer the case. Of course I will HUCA all night, but does anyone have recent experience?

Call number 4- No success. I can usually feel when its a lost cause. They all put in the MEID HEX number on my palm centro 690, and the system keeps calling it a smartphone, even though they claim that they would love to help me, but its hard coded in the computer for all palms...

EDIT- 5th time no luck...since it can be tethered to a laptop, its a smartphone

Dumb phones can also be tethered to a laptop. I know that it is hard coded and that is exactly why it is so hard to do. I know to people who are using Centros as we speak on Verizon as a dumbphone.

Not much new since...
Best after the octane is possibly the brightside.

Get an iPhone, sell it, and buy a dumb phone from ebay
