    I was thinking you were talking about your title. A user can't change their username themselves. Marc or I can do it. Just let us know what you'd like it to be and we'll change it for you.

    visit the i730 forum for those answers. send me a PM and i will change it...

    just FYI, once you tell me your name privately everyone will see it once its changed..

    yes, but if Verizon or anyone else sees it on this thread, they can put my old username and they will know its me, but if we do it PM, they won';t know that it was me, right,
    since it will be a totally new name, I was just concerned about security and privacy issues, and my original username is very close to my name and I have been on the threads for usb modem and bt modem on the i730 and I got a little paranoid about certain problems that could arise out of that,
    now I found out from Verizon how to forward calls its like a landline with Verizon, *72 with the number to send and *73 to end,
    I still have a line with Tmobile and the phone itself sets the number to forward, and they do not use any of the manual *72 programing,
    I was looking at the i730 for a way to forward and couldnt find. Now I know why? Live and learn eh?
    So I will PM you now and figure out a way of doing that with my new username and that will go on my account permanently I would imagine.
    There is no way of user changing his own username I guess for security reasons as well?
    Thanks for the help and the great opportunities for me to learn how to use the phone etc. it is very much appreciated.
    Thanks for the help

    no one can guarantee total security on a public forum thats on the WWW, so dont post anything that you think may be identifying you. once your name is changed it will reflect in your posts.

    You do realize that when we change your username, it will change on all of your old posts as well, right? I think that is what you are after, but just want to make sure.

    As a side note, I thought your name had something to do with canons... I used to be in artillery in the military and so howeisner and howitzer are pretty close to me.

    im going to change your name now.

    again, please post your phone questions in the i730 forum.. this is not the place to discuss any phone related questions.
