  • Excerpt: I had this phone for about 2years, my contract is over, they still didn't fix the phone. After I bought the phone, in about 1week, I went to Verizon wireless store and told them the phone's camera doesn't do zoom in and out. They told me that I have to wait for the software updates through the phone later. 2 years passed, they never do any software updates. I never be able to zoom in or out for 2 years. For this, I missed a lot of good pictures for my daughter.
