Verizon = No candy bar/bar shaped phones?

by Matt316 / January 13, 2007 12:05 AM PST

I am a fan of the candy bar form factor, and have always preferred it to clamshells and swivel/slide phones. I am currently a Verizon subscriber, and have a way outdated Nokia 6015i. This was a low end model, but I chose it because it was one of the only candy bars Verizon was offering. I am now eligible for upgrade, and I am itching for a new phone.

HOWEVER, Verizon doesnt seem to have a single candy bar phone in their lineup. Does anybody know when or if a new candy bar phone will ever make it to Verizon? Maybe something like the Nokia 6375i?

The closest you're going to get to a candybar style phone right now will be to get the LG Chocolate, or the LG EnV. Otherwise, you'll have to either switch to a flip phone, or switch carriers. But even switching carriers might pose a problem at finding a candybar style phone you want, as people nowadays prefer flip phones.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
