Re: Free Wireless Charging Plate?

in the Article: Nokia Lumia 920 and 820 Hit AT&T Stores November 9 forum

Maybe, but no idea. I did email them back with more info on it, but still haven't heard back from them yet. Hopefully when my Lumia 920 gets here it'll have the wireless charger with it too.

Free Wireless Charging Plate?
Nov 8, 2012, 2:40 AM
in the Article: Nokia Lumia 920 and 820 Hit AT&T Stores November 9 forum

I see where AT&T is giving out the free wireless charging plate. I ordered the Lumia 920 on the 7th, didn't see anything about getting one of those. When I contacted AT&T about this I was told "There is no promo like that at all!" So am I getting one of them for free or not? Anyone have any idea's on it?

I thought Samsung said they would sue Apple if the new iPhone had 4G LTE? Or is it both of them?

in the Article: Samsung to Add Apple iPhone 5 to Patent Lawsuit forum

Like how Steve Jobs years ago admitted that they steal ideas? Not only did he admit it but he pretty much was bragging about it. How can Apple state they steal ideas, then get pissed if someone steals ideas from them? Plus how can Apple even claim they came up with anything when almost everything they do, other companies did months to years before them? Things like how they claim they came up with universal search... uhhhh... Palm had that in ...

in the Article: Apple Presses Court for Faster Trial vs. Samsung forum

Problem is Apple is quick to take someone to court cause they claim they are stealing from them. Yet Steve Jobs himself has stated before that Apple has not one problem stealing ideas from other people. Look at iOS 5, you could say a ripoff of BBM and Android stuff, that's ok.... Let RiM or Google do that to Apple and see how fast Apple tries to take them to court. Apple takes things other phones have done for months ...

in the Article: Sprint Does AT&T's Homework forum

What it really boils down to is Sprint is pissed. Sprint wanted to buy T-Mobile and wasn't able too. Now that AT&T is buying it Sprint is steamed. Pretty much one of those "If we can't have T-Mobile, no one can!" attitudes if you ask me.

in the Apple iPhone 4 (GSM) forum

That's the thing about Apple tho. They add things to the iPhone other phones have had for months to years and try to make it seem like they came up with the idea. Of course the iPhone fanboys go nuts for it and rush out to get it. Look at those that bough the iPhone, went out got the 3G, then next year rushed out and got 3Gs. Now they're gonna grab iPhone 4 as ...

About a month ago there was a rumor saying Sprint was getting it sometime this summer. Said it was going to be a iPhone 4G, but haven't heard anything else. But I'll believe it when I see it.

Kin Two is no where as bad as this guy is making it out to be. Yeah it's not perfect but claiming things like the call button is to small to hit is bull. Looked like he missed it on purpose if you ask me. Then stating "If you want to post a tweet you have to go to the Twitter web page" Bull freaking crap. On the main screen you click where your name is ...

Devour has more then just Vcast on it. It has VZ Navigator and a few others I believe. As I've said before I think it was dumb of AT&T to take out Google Search. Maybe if enough complains about it they'll add it back.. doubt it but you never know.

in the Article: Review: Motorola Backflip forum

Don't see how it's any different then VZW throwing all their crap on the Devour. Of course companies like AT&T and VZW want their stuff on phones they sell. They hope people will pay for them and make more money. Only thing I think AT&T shouldn't have done is removed Google Search. Should've left it alone and they could've added Yahoo on there as a second choice.

in the Article: Review: Motorola Devour forum

Yeah I've noticed the signal on the Devour isn't that great. I was out today in a few places and it claimed I was romaing at times, 3G was off and on, etc. A friend is with VZW and has the Curve 8330 and she was having no problems. I had even done the *228, then 1 and also 2. Doesn't seem like it helped much at all. Hope they can release a software fix for ...

From my understand Nexus One sold like 20K in it's first week or so. Droid sold over 200k in the same amount of time. So not sure how the Droid could be the worst Android phone.

Ripping off Aple, yet Apple rips off others. As Menno and myself pointed out Steve Jobs said "We are shameless when it comes to stealing ideas!" The do it and it's fine, someone does it to them and they want to sue.

in the Article: Apple Sues HTC Over Patents forum

Not only that but in a video where he uses "Good artists copy, great artists steal" he also said something like "We are shameless when it comes to stealing ideas!" So he admits Apple steals other companies ideas, but do that to them and they sue.

No more Unlimited Txt?
Feb 19, 2010, 8:17 PM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

I was looking at VZW site just a bit ago and instead of unlimited txt it now says 5000 txt PLUS unlimited mobile to mobile for $20. When did they change this and why? Yes 5000 is a lot but it's always nice to have unlimited.

Re: Simply Everything

I'd say if they do they'll drop it from $99.99 to either $79.99 or $89.99 I don't see them lowering it anymore than that.

Do you really think AT&T will keep their plans the same price? My guess within the next few weeks or month AT&T will match or beat VZW new plan prices.

I understand wanting a phone with a full qwerty keyboard. But there are non-smartphones that have them that doesn't need a data plan at all.

Re: Show your greed guys....

in the Article: AT&T to Officially Mandate Data Plans for All Smartphones forum

I think it's over-all a good idea. People get smartphones with no data plan, yet they still want to use data. They get their bill and when it's hundreds or thousands of dollars they call or go into the store throwing a fit. Then the company has to put of with that when it wasn't their fault. Also, whats the point in have a smartphone with no data plan? One of the main reasons of a ...

In the past month or so I've been in a local AT&T store 3-4 times. Each time They've never asked me for my name or number, they only ask if I needed help with anything. They only asked name & number once I was checking out.

Did you own the Instinct when it first came out? I did and the browser sucked phone had a bit of problems, took them forver to fix the browser, etc. Read about any old post about the Instinct and you'd see. It may be a good phone now but whats that matter? More or likely by this summer a new one will be out.

Yep, Instinct 2

I soon as I saw that picture I know that had to be a new Instinct. Just hope they don't screw this one up like they did the first. Lets hope it uses a different browser. I hope it has a lot more and better features too.

I wrote VZW today about when a new official update for the Storm would be. Pointed out that people are getting tired of waiting and they feel VZW has given up on the Storm. Wasn't even 10-15 mins later they called my phone about it. The lady stated that .75 was the last official update to come out and as of now there's no word on when a new one will be released. So looks like we ...

I have noticed somewhere there was a picture of the Storm with this wallpaper. Not 100% sure on it but believe it looked like a rainstorm at night. Any ideas where I might be able to find it? Looked around a number of places and no luck yet. Also how do you get the weather on the Storm beside loading up browser? I didn't notice any app for it, and would rather have an app.

Re: Screen Protector?

in the BlackBerry Storm 9530 forum

Thing is I found another post where someone asked pretty much the same thing and this is what someone said to them. "It's meant to come off. The phone doesn't need it to work. They're just advising you to use a screen protector so that you don't scratch your screen."

Screen Protector?
Jan 1, 2009, 2:49 PM
in the BlackBerry Storm 9530 forum

Does the Storm come with a screen protector? I noticed after I removed a sticker on the front there were a few bubbles (which I was able to get out). So since there's another sticker there is that one suppose to come off or is it ment to be the protector? I don't want to remove it if it's suppose to be there. But don't want it there if it's ok to remove.

Why buy a phone such as a iPhone, BlackBerry, etc if you don't want to do the data plans? Might as well stick with a normal mobile phone.

Re: Voice Only??
Nov 25, 2008, 3:09 PM

My guess is since it's a Windows Mobile phone it'll require a data plan also.

Yep, I've heard this for sometime now. I've been told it's best to do it once a day or at least once every other day. Doesn't matter what phone or carrier you have either. Believe it helps make the phone run smooth. Kind of like how restarting/turning off your PC helps it run better. Plus remember mobile phones of today are pretty much tiny PC's.

To me it would be silly to go out and buy a phone like the iPhone and not have a data plan. If you or whoever doesn't want a data plan then why not stick to a plain mobile phone?
