...does Google buy these services only to shut them down later?
Re: Kiss my ass!
I am so not looking forward to this. :evil:
Means rules and restrictions for end users.
Let Google block the YouTube app. It's not like there aren't thousands of other apps available that do exactly what the official YouTube app was doing that Google disliked.
From taxpayers' pockets?
It's a worthy cause, but can't they raise the money some other way? My phone bill comes out to just over $100 per month.
Re: Here we go again.
Agreed. All these little companies getting swallowed up by the big guys will only lead to a great oligopoly.
...try competing in the marketplace instead of running to government to hold your hand because Motorola and Samsung are kicking your arse at every turn.
Re: Since February
LOL yup. We'll be lucky to get something by December, if even then.
Google and the manufacturers have been sitting on this since February and we're just now finding out about it? /;| :x
To a neighborhood near me? Oh, I hope, I hope. I need some broadband love!
There are any number of apps in the Play Store that allow the downloading of YouTube videos. Good luck trying to stop all of them!
Why don't they just quit?
If they're going to cut so many services that people like and use, why don't they just shut down altogether?
Why shut down those services when people most need them? Typical government BS.
Hopefully, other carriers will follow suit.
Re: I wonder how much Judge Gildea was paid off by Apple
Apple certainly has the world court system in their pockets. Now they can sue anyone for anything and win.
I can't believe they're still releasing phones with Gingerbread on them.
Re: Not gonna lie
Other than the different versions of Android, are there any significant differences between this phone and the Droid 4?
Re: not iDEN
Right. I forgot that push to talk was available on CDMA as well as iDEN. I wonder if it'll be available on LTE.
Re: Phone with no network
Oops! I forgot about that. Thanks.
Phone with no network
Didn't I recently read that Sprint is shutting down their iDEN network? Why would they offer a phone for a network that will be gone soon?
Yes. Price increases are never the right thing to do unless there is some benefit to the customers in terms of better devices, faster networks, more bandwidth. When they just keep take, take, taking without even tossing us a bone, all they do is alienate us.
Ghetto it might be, but for those with bad credit or who can't afford to pay for an expensive contract, it would likely meet their needs.
Money changed hands somewhere.
Almost, but not quite
If they were to offer 10 or 20 GB packages, I might consider it.
Re: Contract required?
30 GB would be awesome. If they offered something like that in my area, I'd get it, contract or no.
Sounds tempting. Would it require a contract and would caps over 10 GB be available?
Why the f'ing around?
There's absolutely no reason why the Droid 4 shouldn't get ICS. There's also no reason for Moto to take so long to deliver ICS to phones, except they insist on including Blur, even though people hate it. Hopefully, if Google gets their hands on Moto soon, they can change things for the better.
Is there truly any need at all, network integrity wise, to throttle and cap data, or is it purely a money grab by the carriers? :evil:
Touch screen only?
I get the feeling that in the future, other than a power button, phones are going to be exclusively touch screen.
I think that was a smart move on Verizon Wireless' part.
Good to see
That not all cell phone carriers are greedy, profitmongering bastards. Props to Page Plus!
Anything below 5 GB of data is stingy.
Re: Please don't get me started
It just goes to show you how committed to protecting the rights and freedoms of their voters our elected officials really are. I know I'll sleep better at night knowing these guys are looking out for me! :evil: :twisted:
Until they have enough people hooked on those data-hungry Android devices they're bringing out. Smart business move. :twisted: :roll:
Down with throttling and tiered data!
Let's go back to the old days when we gobbled up gigabyte after gigabyte with no repercussions from the providers! :twisted:
Always looking for a way to crack down on people's fun while bleeding us of money! :evil:
In other words, "I didn't get a big enough slice of the pie, so I'm going to throw a big tantrum." Typical greedy corporatist.
Caps, tiers, throttling and overages
Are all just ways for the providers to limit our freedoms and bleed us dry. There is absolutely no reason to deny people unlimited use of the Net we have always had other than greed, greed and more greed.
Patents and such
Can't Google just stop using MS patented technologies in Android and substitute them with something made from scratch? Then MS wouldn't be able to charge them royalties anymore.
And we're supposed to be excited?
BlackBerry and Android users have had the ability to do this from the start. MS is always a step or two behind.
