    I hope someone else has noticed this problem. Yesterday, I ported my cell number over to ATT for the iPhone. This was a port from Verizon that is now reported as complete.

    Just a moment ago, I posted to another forum website that I participate in that reports domains the posting came from in the notes. It showed up that I was posting from myvzw.com!!

    WTF? :confused: Anyone else notice this? A timing thing? I guess I'm worried about data usage on a now "closed" VZW account.

    You can't be using data on Verizon Wireless, as the technology they use is different than what at&t uses.

    What is likely happening is that somehow your phone number is being associated with Myvzw.com, or you are on a WiFi network with that domain.

    Ok - yeah, thinking about that now - it makes sense that it would be impossible due to the difference in how the two are operated. Thanks!
