Re: Get the Thunderbolt or wait?
Aug 21, 2011, 1:16 PM
in the HTC ThunderBolt forum

I've had the thunderbolt for about 4 months now. My biggest "complaint" has always been the battery. So the extended life battery is a must purchase along with an otterbox case. It is not that bad of a phone if you like large screen devices and android phones. Plus, you are buying the thunderbolt after the bug issues were "fixed." But if you want to make choice comparisons I suggest waiting for the latter of the two to come ...

Re: I have an Alltel Plan on Verizon......
Jun 24, 2011, 11:52 AM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

Ok, before the merger all smartphones on Alltell had to be apart of he Smartpack plan. So that means you will lose your unlimited for $10 because it is not compatable with smartphones. So I would invest before July 7th if I were you. Sorry for the bad news :( For those who are reading this and have a smartpack plan from Alltel, I can tell you first hand, because I had a tunderbolt for 2.5 months now, that ...

Re: Smart phones make you stupid and sucks your brain!!!
Jun 14, 2011, 2:58 PM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

Most people with smart phones do dumb things. I'm glad Gieco put it out there in their last commercial. 8) My favorite phone was the Moto RAZR 2(V9M). As I traveled more, needed ready access to public bus schedules, tasks/information for school and work when I am in town or travel clamshell phones started to become more of a handicap. I have the thunderbolt and the ONLY complaint I have is the battery life. Do we really need ...

Re: itunes for WinMo?
Dec 23, 2009, 8:53 PM
in the HTC Imagio forum

Unfortunatly Itunes will not support it... which most will say "No isht sherlock." But Winamp will. Winamp's music file manager for media devices is pretty good almost as simple as itunes if you have used Itunes before. Make sure you have the most updated version of it to see what Im talking about. I use it to manage and play music on my ipod rather than Itunes. Especially for the eq.

Basically, yes. I remember when Dan Hesse took over sprint and wanted to reorganize the company, about 300 people were fired from a vendor call center here in Louisiana. That center, at that time, employed about 1000 people.

Okay... you guys must not get out too often or socialize. /;| Drop is a slang term for debut, present itself, or . The context the poster uses it in is correct. Many others actually use this term on a daily basis in casual conversation. sheesh, forum nerds :roll:

Dang it... I should have held out for my upgrade for one more year... instead I got this RAZR 2 that is starting to annoy the heck out of me. It looks like its worth it.

Acutally you can have different area codes or Market areas (CSA's) on your account but they have to be coverd with alltel. For example, I have a CSA in my hometown on my account but I also have my little brother with me with a differnt area code in the same town we stay in now.

Regardless where you go... note, I say retail not sprint only. People do the same dumb things on both sides of the fence. I've seen ATT, Alltel, and verizon reps do it. But thats just telecom. Don't get me started when I see folks selling things at circuit city, radio shack and best buy. People are being miseducated no matter where you go in retail. It is due to customers not doing research on what they are buying and ...

I'm inclined to agree with you. You provide information...things happend folks wan't finatial compensation where there countermeasures in place to educate them about charges and bam! "I wan't this charge removed" says the customer... like it or not regardless of where you are in retail folks will never be satisfied. This thing where customers feel that they have been coerced into getting extra things (phones, svcs, etc.)... Folks, I know people arent that week mind. I swear this is making ...

If this phone drops for verizon after the Alltel/verizon merger goes through I will get this as my next phone... If it is still avalible. Im curious about the phone's construction... is it going to be more plastic than anything. The mogul is nice but the plastic case isnt whats hot for me. /;|

Apparently you know nothing of EVDO networks vs EDGE... regardless if you are with verizon or sprint hands down you are going to get more reliable connections and faster speeds than EDGE mainly due to protocals and it is easier to build upon. Damn ATT and Iphone nut riders.

It's a slippery slope. Next thing you know customers, in that particular situation, will demand companies to lower the price of the phones and will try to sue over that. /;| Its funny that cellular companies provide time limits for customers to try their service out. They can try out their service in areas typical to their normal use, hear nothing from them but when they are in their Agreements in about a year and then when ...

Re: Alltel in certain major cities...?
May 6, 2008, 2:20 PM
in the Alltel forum

I was in the Baltimore DC area a few months ago and I had no problems at all. The upside is as long as you have aN ational freedom plan you are cool, too an extent...The downside about it is alltel will allow you to roam for only so long. After a while they can drop you. I read it on the website on the terms of service section.

The first two responses are logical. So many folks don't know it but if the dude wants his own bill and he is in Ensemble we can give it to him and when you have more than one line on your account YOU DO NOT HAVE TO GET A FAMILY SHARE PLAN. Let that line have its own. But If the party is a straight jackhole about the usage then let em go...

in the Sprint forum

I' like the situation like that. I have the $5 300 msg package for Alltel and I don't send txt msgs often but I do a fair amount of MMS so a flat rate for just the all in one works fine. It is a hell of alot cheaper than paying $15 for all three svcs and I don't use them often.

It can only be backdated with in the same cycle the usage occurs. If you recieve charges for PCS data on the invoice don't call cust care asking to back date it for that cycle. It is not going to work. If you see data charges dialing *4 or we tell you in cust care that you have it durring the active cycle then we can back date it to start for the beginning of that active cycle. * I ...

Being honest, I know a few others probably have said this too; and I don't want to cosign but folks please buy insurance. That is why companies offer it. If you don't purchase the company's insurance and your manufactures warranty is up don't exspect a company to do anything for you.

Many people who bash sprint complain about customer service and phones, Which obviously we all know and hear. While working for customer care @ sprint I learned that many folks just have an insatiable attitude. They basically can not be satisfied unless it goes their way. Being honest we do listen to your issues. But, if the issue had been answerd but it may not have been what you want, there is no need for jumping off the deep ...

I wasnt getting a PDA phoone (PPC6800)and my bill double and Im not going to use half of the features.

*note: I have the alltel version now* Basically to put ringers from the card to be used on the phone you have to move the song or ringtone to the phone's memory. then you can set what ever ringer you want. But to the person you replied to on any moto phone you can not delete the preset ringtones. 8) Sorry
