Hey everyone.. OK, this is a weird question. I recently WAS able to get
an Analog Motorola Metor Ultima Pocket phone activated on to my Verizon
account. I can place calls fine, BUT, when someone trys to call me, the
phone doesn't ring, and the calling party hears one long ring, and then
one short before getting kicked to the voicemail. What's weird is that
when im in a call, i can recieve another call through call waiting; its
when the phone isn't in a call, that i cant receive a call... Im
completly stumped, is there anything i can do? Im in the Chicago
market, and im on a Americas Choice 400 plan. Could the plan have
anything to do with it? I've come some close to being able to use
analog again on my verizon, i just cant give it up already...lol.. Any
help is greatly appreciated. Thanks

How did you activate it? Online via the VZW website? If so, you'll
have to call customer service and let them know you have a analog
phone on the system and not a digital CDMA one. Then it should work.

How pissed does Verizon get when you always use their analog service?
Since my plan is digital, I imagine it'll look very strang always being
in analog. I also noticed that in one area, where i get servie very
well actually, i can't get a call to go through, the networks always
"busy". Now, i could see it maybe busy during peak times, but at 3am,
that doesnt seem right. Anyone know what might be up?
On a side note, i have a REAL brick phone i kinda wana give Verizon the
ESN to use, think if I try to swap the ESN to my Motorola Classic I
might be pushing my luck?

Many analog phones behave exactly this way when the system tries to send
Caller-ID to the phone. Newer analog phones understand Caller-ID (or at
least recognize and ignore the data). But older ones consider it a
protocol error and drop the call. The key is have Caller-ID disabled
(by calling customer service) while using the analog phone.
