Android 5.0.2 is available for first Gen Moto G

While the official Android 5 (Lollipop) ROM is going through soak tests, albeit not to successfully, there are several custom Lollipop ROMS are available. The best of the crop is "Candy5" available at It is based mainly on Cyanogenmod 12 and a few others. it is the most feature complete Lollipop rom available.

Difference between 1st and 2nd Generation Moto G
Nov 18, 2014, 10:39 AM
in the Motorola Moto G (GSM, 2nd gen.) forum

I don't really see any compelling reason to upgrade to a 2nd gen Moto G. CPU is pretty much the same, 3MP more on main camera isn't compelling enough, Storage space is the same and the only thing that I could appreciate more is the ability to use a SD Card. If Lenovo continues the the Moto X and G line I hope the next version has more features to compel me to upgrade. If not. Then I don't ...

I will be utterly shocked and surprised if any 3 letter agency approves this merger.

First Smart thing in a while
Jun 16, 2014, 3:32 PM
in the Article: Sprint Expands LTE Roaming Agreements forum

First smart thing Sprint has done in a long while. That and I think they are preparing when the FCC, FTC, DOJ, SEC and a few other agencies deny the T-Mobile merger.

Don't see this happening
May 12, 2014, 12:40 AM
in the Article: T-Mobile Wants $1B Break-Up Fee If Sprint Deal Fails forum

I don't see this going through for a few reasons. 1. The oversight agencies of this government don't want to risk losing competitiveness. By Sprint buying T-Mobile they will also acquire MetroPCS. So in one action they would remove two Carriers. T-Mobile being a actual carrier and MetroPCS being a MVNO owned by T-Mobile. Removing 2 competitors would limit customer options. 2. I suspect that Verizon and AT&T will start lawsuits about how this could impact customer choice. 3. Sprint is only ...

Even though iDEN is gone... on Sprint, it makes a decent 2 way
Mar 26, 2014, 1:14 PM
in the Motorola i1 forum

Even though iDEN is gone on the Sprint network, this phone makes a decent 2 way walkie talkie. Off network direct connect thankfully doesn't require a cellular connection. At least it isn't a total waste of money.

in the Article: Next Windows Phone Will Support Cheaper Phones forum

I like what I am seeing so far. Loosening the reigns a bit is not a bad thing. Allowing more hardware options will attract more hardware manufacturers and allow the price point to be lower allowing Windows Phone to compete more readily with Android. Now the question that begs to be asked. Will it work? Will it attract more manufacturers? Time will tell.

Re: Those speeds tho

in the Article: T-Mobile Expands 4G LTE to 273 Cities forum

I guarantee those speeds will go down when more people start using LTE with T-Mobile and more MetroPCS user start getting T-Mobile compatible phones. If T-Mobile can keep the speeds up, then and only then will they earn those braggings rights. Time will tell.

128-bit is not coming anytime soon. Currently the main 64-bit processors is the elimination of the 4GB Barrier. On PC's that is working great. However on smartphones we are just now coming close to that with the just announced. Samsung Galaxy J which has 3GB of ram and talks of the S5 and Note 4 having 4GB of ram. 64-bit will allow up to 16 exabyte which translates to 16 Billion Gigabytes. and also all high end Android. smartphones use 32-bit ...

Re: I think
Sep 18, 2013, 12:12 AM
in the Article: NTIA Petitions FCC to Mandate that Carriers Unlock Phones forum

The only reason a phone works like crap on an other network is simple. Frequency, if you have a TMobile Galaxy S2, 3, 4 on AT&T you aren't going to use the full potential of that phone. TMobile HSPA+, HSPDA, HSDPA and LTE run on different frequencies then AT&T. And the same is somewhat true of VZW and Sprint.

I'll stick with Beautiful Widgets and Weatherbug

in the Article: Yahoo Brings Weather App to Android forum

I think I will stick with Beautiful Widgets and Weather bug. I get the same features and more. While I am sure people who are use to Yahoo will like it, I personally find it limiting. There better applications out there for free that do more.

I agree as well. The more choices people have the better the field may be. As of right this moment the only Mobile OS's that seem to have everyone's attention is Android and iOS, however you have Windows Phone, QNX bases Blackberry OS 10, Firefox OS, Tinzen (which is making serious waves in South Korea) and Ubuntu OS which is making slow progress. There are choices you just need to dig. But I agree with having more choices then just two. ...

Yes, the new Blackberries to have some sweet hardware, hand down. But just because you have the better hardware doesn't mean you are going to use it well. Agreed. Profitability with BB has been based on its uniqueness and its ability to do what other platforms can not. The ONLY thing that Blackberry can do natively that other can is use BES and BBM. Since then Android, iPhone, Windows Phone have gained dominance over businesses when it comes to corporate ...

However, unlike Windows Phone , Android is a proven platform that is insanely popular. While Android may not be the save all OS, it sure as hell seems to be at this juncture. And on top of it it is IMHO better then WP7 & 8.

No, you are correct about Blackberry pulling out of this hole they put themselves in. However for them to survive they will need to shine better then Samsung, HTC, Motorola, LG, Sony and even ZTE and Huawei. Can they do it, I believe they can. But they will need to devote every ounce of energy and creativeness to do such that.

HMCS is Her Majesty's Canadian Ship. I said that because Blackberry is a Canadian company.

Aug 12, 2013, 8:11 AM
in the Article: BlackBerry to Explore Strategic Alternatives forum

As much as I hate to admit it, Blackberry lost its foot hold on the market by staying stagnant, when iPhone and Android landed they stayed complacent by staying with their Java based OS on very under powered hardware. And in the time it took for them to bring out modern looking smart phones, you have had the rise of Android as the dominant OS (not looking for a Android vs iPhone vs Windows Phone vs whatever else contest), ...

MetroPCS HSPA APN Settings

I am thinking about going to MetroPCS when my area has the BOYD plans for TMobile HSPA+, GSM, LTE, UMTS, HSDPA, HSUPA, AWS network. What are the APN settings for that? Is it T-Mobile's APN settings or MetroPCS's APN settings?

Here we go again. I hope the FCC, DOJ, FTC and everyone else shoots it down. AT&T does not need more spectrum, like Verizon they have the mother lode. The Deathstar is out again.

in the Article: FCC Approves SoftBank Buying Sprint Buying Clearwire forum

The SoftBank Merger has NOTHING to do with spectrum, if it did have ANYTHING to do with spectrum they would not have killed off iDEN, which did have to do with valuable spectrum. Sprint's major drawback has been they have been using the PCS band for cellular, 1xRTT and EVDO. They were partners with Clearwire so they could use the WiMAX which runs in the 2.5 Ghz range. All of which have horrible penetration when it comes to buildings, ...

in the Article: Clearwire Delays Sprint Vote to Discuss Dish forum

This is true. But Dish has tried the mobile phone business once and it was a unmitigated disaster. Sprint will still own a 51% share so perhaps something good can come of this. Personally I think Dish is doing this to drive the price through the roof just to puss sprint off.

Yeah, let's let one financially hurting company buy an other financially hurting company and have one big financially hurting company. Dish doesn't even have the money, it has to borrow it. Yeah this makes a ton of sense.

I understand what Dish is saying. But to quote Phone Scoop. "SoftBank has signaled to the U.S. government that it will let officials elect a new person to Sprint's board of directors. This person would be responsible for overseeing national security concerns." I don't know any other Non-US based company to make such a concession without even being asked to make it. Personally I believe this is a way to calm any critics down who may yell National Security vulnerability like Dish ...

Wow! If I didn't read the names of the companies I would have been sure they were talking about Apple inc. Apple is the one who has been throwing lawsuits left and right on virtually every tech company out there. And Motorola is the one that got spanked by the EU. Smells like someone greased up a judges pocket. So much for freedom of innovation.

Why would Google do this? Motorola Mobility makes not only Android phones, but also iDEN phones and Feature phones. Are they trying to become fabless? Or are they only interested in the IP's? Them again it could be cheaper in the long run if they have this contract. But damn, I would hate to be working for Motorola right now.

They are they planning to move. Personally out of all the outcomes I hope it is the 3rd. If MS buys them then there goes all the other non-Windows Phone handsets (feature phones). If they are strapped for cash then it won't be long until they ...
