Rumors have recently begun circulating about an annoying potential drawback of Verizon?s V Cast mobile music store, which is set to be launched on January 16th.

The W810 is equipped with EDGE Class 10 technology, to allow quick and easy data transfers and Internet access, and Bluetooth? Wireless technology for connectivity with Bluetooth handsfree headsets and sharing data with other Bluetooth-enabled devices.
