in the Article: Apple Hit with Class Action Lawsuit Over iPhone Storage forum

not true at all. I just updated my 5s finally to ios 8.1.2.. after restoring my device i have 4GB of free storage. it's only 2GB if you do the OTA update. If there's anything to cry about, it's the fact that apple doesn't delete the download file after the update is complete, which I have seen many HTC devices do the same. Also another reason to cry - you don't own a computer to correctly do the software ...

Maybe we should have better parents parenting. Back when I was a kid, (here we go) I went to school. Went home. Went to a friends house, I would call my parents to let them know.

i'd even go as far as End of Lifing some of the devices earlier - assuming that's not up to the carriers. they're still selling galaxy S3s and S4s. I'd ditch the Mega series as well. And all the random variations of junks. Entry level, midrange disguised as last year's high end, high end, and Note series. Oh the same goes for the tablets.

Maybe they'll bring customer service back to the states and give raises to store employees as well. Now that would help fix sprints image. But alas it's too late. Morale is so down within sprint

Great idea!

But 10 calls? that's nearly 5 minutes of dialing if you assume 30 minutes for each call. that would mess my mind up

PTT is dead

in the Article: Sprint Lets More Smartphones Use PTT App forum

this is another reason why sprint is stupid. nobody wants PTT. text messaging killed PTT. you've got that odd customer base that wants it, guess what? there are apps out there for it already. know when to dip out sprint and focus your time and money elsewhere. like ON THE NETWORK

very great points made or can you imagine someone that works at your wireless carrier? whether that be a store or call center on their way out as their last day, or having a horrible day? someone calls into them, and as i suspect, starts yelling at them and cussing them out. they say 'screw it' and kill your phone? on second thought i like the idea ;)

How does warranty and insurance work?
Nov 11, 2013, 4:52 PM
in the Article: Moto Maker Now Available to Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon forum

1 year obviously through Motorola I would assume. I'm sure GSM customers have a better experience going through Moto but what about CDMA like Sprint and Verizon? The same with insurance. How is a replacement device ordered? Is it a black/white stock one at that point or a completely remade device with the original color combination??

in the Article: Sprint to Sell Phones in More Costco Stores forum

Wireless advocates wil only sell three carriers at each physical kiosk. The question is who is getting booted? Last year a mix of tmobile and AT&T got replaced by sprint... What about this year? From what I remember it was an even mix of 100 kiosks adding sprint.

And what happens with insurance replacements? I'm going to assume it won't be covered by AT&T/asurion. Of if it is, what do they send out as a replacement? Your green and blue with purple phone or the standard black?

in the Article: T-Mobile Trims Headcount forum

That's also why tmibiles new plans have virtually no overages. Besides calling in to complain about coverage I'm sure bitching about going over minutes is the most common. This saves the company credits and the eventual need for more customer service agents. I smell another layoff in a few months. Oh wait I lied, since tmobile already outsources a lot of their agents.

Carly was one of the employees let go too :lol: :lol: this company keeps on trimming payroll - customer service, national retail, corporate stores disappearing in exchange for TPRs, more and more part-time employees inside corporate stores. i guess they have to make it up somewhere with money shelled out to iphone, LTE, and cheaper plans

probably has to do with how easy it is to activate with sprint (lower deposits) and thus turning around and selling the device for profit overseas.

The way I'm reading it, this will only affect Google Calendar Sync for Outlook on a computer starting today: Google Calendar Sync: The Google Calendar Sync download link will be removed on December 14, 2012. Existing users can continue to use it to sync with Microsoft Outlook Calendar, but it will no longer be supported by Google as of December 14, 2012.

For Tmobile it would be extremely bad for T-Moble's bottom line to lose national retail. They sell a lot of phones and drive new customers. But of course as a sales rep at Tmobile you don't care

What happens to National Retail?

Batman phone is all i have to say. Got to play with the dummy mock up display recently, and it was impossible to hold with my hand and move around like the review says. I thought I was going to get a cramp. The thing is ugly to look at too. At least the Note looks somewhat pleasing.

i feel sorry for people who foot the bill for their parents, relatives, grand parents, children getting their first phones. $30 to add a line on a basic phone? what's the point? pre-paid is going to have a big explosion again. $100 for 1000 minutes is looking like a bargain more and more everyday for the older generation.

This is why I will never resign a contract with sprint or any other company. Paying $50 on Sero is more than enough. If my work did not reimburse me for a phone I would look into prepaid for my next phone.

in the Article: nTelos to Sell iPhone for $50 Less than Other Carriers forum

I swear Sprint sells their network to anybody that's willing to use it. It's the same plan essentially $80 for unlimited text and data and 600 minutes but the phone is $50 cheaper and uses the same network as Sprint? what is wrong with this picture? I wonder if this counts as part of the committment that Sprint would sell X amount of iphones in 5 years?
