I love Android , but the truth hurts
On my Windows laptop , or my daughters Windows Phone , I can delete or add programs/apps as much as I would like - without having to root the device. Yes there are default programs , but there is more freedom out of the box than Android.
Will Metro PCS sell the Galaxy Mega 2?
While T-Mobile never sold the Galaxy Mega , Metro PCS did carry this device. Will Metro PCS offer the GM2 as well?
Gethuawei.com website has MAJOR problems
Phone may or may not be a good phone but website has MAJOR problems and if you call the support 800 number they are awful as well.
Removable Battery & Removable Memory = More Sales
It's that simple. People like the build materials and quality is o.k. So close , yet so far away.
Will wifi calling be available?
I have read all the info that I can find and see no references to this T-Mobile feature on the updated GSM variant.
It takes time "to evolve into one LTE base"
Charles Bigelow said: OK, thanks. I understand. Impractical though then. Why put AWS 1700 and 1900 on the same phone if eventually LTE will be the norm?? Just for now? If AT&T would have merged with T-Mobile, then there would have been no worries in that department. So now they have to start tweaking a whole line of phones for interoperability on a network that is going to evolve into one LTE base in the future? Maybe I am missing something ...
50% of "Big 4" push "unlimited data" hard
It doesn't look like unlimited data is going south if you look at T-Mobile and Sprint.
It's garbage to you. What do you do if you are in a place where you get no cell phone signal and you don't want to listen to your library of music? Satellite radio maybe?
This can be uses in areas where the network has been refarmed to 1900mhz.
Other companies bid at the auctions everytime , but the results don't change. AT&T and Verizon.
Not good for consumers. Ultimately , not good for business either.
And this helps the consumer how???........
I guess higher prices , less choices , and a duopoly is a good thing. The bigger the company, the better the lobbyist.
Sprints merger with Nextel has little in common with T-Mobile MetroPCS deal
Sprint and Nextel did not share frequencies or technologies. The demographics for their customer bases were very different. Until LTE , Sprint and Nextel had no natural upgrade path and had to run two separate networks. T-Mobile and MetroPCS have a natural upgrade path: LTE. T-Mobile is a GSM/EDGE , UMTS/HSPA network that shares frequencies with MetroPCS. MetroPCS is a CDMA/LTE network. Quotes from Wikipedia: "LTE is the natural upgrade path for carriers with GSM/UMTS networks" and "LTE services were launched ...
Apple tried a music social network : PING
Apple had to shut that down. Now they are trying their own maps app. But your point is a good one there is plenty of competition for Google products and services.
The phone is sold unlocked .....
It's a Nexus.
Go to XDA website .....
There is a microUSB workaround that is described very clearly.
With removable memory , you at least have the option of using it or not...
You can still have the internal memory and just choose not to use the expandable option. With the direction that manufacturers and Google have been steering Android toward , you'll be forced to use their online storage which is affordable or free now , but what about the future? To me the telecom industry and the entertainment industry wants us to go toward a business model more like the cable industry , where consumers used to record and control their ...
Release a phone with very limited memory onboard , then after a few months change the color and add some memory and BOOM! You have a "new" version.
Re: Cheaper. Smaller. Faster. No excuse for not including more memory in new phones!
Personally , expandable , removable memory was one of the selling points ( along with removable , replaceable batteries ) for Android OS over IOS. A memory card slot is always a benefit in my opinion.
Cheaper. Smaller. Faster. No excuse for not including more memory in new phones!
The first phone I mentioned was the Droid DNA. SMH. :?
Cheaper. Smaller. Faster. No excuse for not including more memory in new phones!
Recent phones have been disappointing with the lack of memory and/or ability to expand memory. HTC Droid DNA , HTC One X/One X+ , and LG Nexus4.
This is great! Will my Galaxy Note and/or Galaxy S II get updated?
I'm glad my GSIII received Jelly Bean , now how about the other phones ? Galaxy Note (original) and the GSII ?
Designed specifically to resist purchase
Rugged , weatherproof , and completely uncompetitive , the Sony Xperia Advance is anything but! Available in an assortment of colors that you wouldn't want.
Ice Cream Sandwich ? Really ?
Sony , what are you doing ? Free advice : when you release new hardware , do your best to make sure the software is as up to date as possible.
One step closer.
We have lobbyist. We will pay them double the fine to get the law changed. ( $1.4 million ) After we get the law changed we will bump you out of your grandfathered plan :twisted: Verizon
Now where will we get original Verizon content? How will I know it's VZW approved? Can I trust an app if it's not preloaded on my phone ?
Wow! This is awesome. What version of Android OS is powering this ? 2.1 , 2.2 , what ? Could it even be 3.0 ?!?!
This makes it worth the wait!
Not network connectivity. Not processing power. Not software. Not build quality. Not materials or durability. North battery life. Not even the call quality matters as much as branding. Verizon.
That loud noise is Microsoft shooting itself in the foot
My laptop running Windows connects to my home network which connects to my Xbox360 , PS3 , Galaxy Note etc. Easy access to my media. Why would I want a device that makes life less convenient?
HSPA+21 or 42?
Eric , could you clarify at which speed this tops out? In T-Mobiles press release it said 42 but in Googles Play store it says 21. Is there a separate version for T-Mobile or is there just a mistake in the information?
A few companies are following the rule sooo let's not enforce it at all
Wow. What is wrong with allowing a person to have control over a device that they purchase? Most tablets are bought OUTRIGHT - NO CONTRACT - But it will not be up to you , the owner , what you do with it. ( at least legally ) Apply this logic to a new car you purchase or a new computer.
Complain about the price if you want , but right now can you get a GNII on another US carrier ? If you go to a T-Mobile forum the complaints are for selection ( premium handsets ) and expanded coverage. As far as price , would you complainers switch to T-Mobile if the price was lower ?
Thank you Rich Brome for the quick response. The reason I asked is because one carrier may sell it cheaper than the other. If you can possibly unlock all of the bands and they have the same radios then you have more choices.
If you have one or the other ( AT&T or T-Mobile ) is it possible to get the missing frequencies through a software unlock ? Or , is it a hardware difference in the radios ?
DCMA is also a basis for the lawsuit , not just the Sherman Act
The DMCA has a provision that allows handset owners to modify their devices for use on other networks. Read the article and/or the source material.
All of this to increase the amount of leaverage softbank has to purchase equipment?
Re: Konnichiwa Softbank San
$2+! You will do well. I believe it was around $13 when Dan took over.
Re: Sprint = $12.8 Billion T-Mobile = $39 Billion What's up with that?
All true. You know the old saying : Buy low , sell high. Makes you wonder what potential investors see for Sprint Nextels future. Softbank seems to see good things.
Sprint = $12.8 Billion T-Mobile = $39 Billion What's up with that?
You are right , it's talks not a sale. Until a deal is approved by regulators , company boards , shareholders , etc. Just like AT&T and T-Moblie. Just talks of a $39 billion deal. Verizon , now that's a sale of Alltel for $28.1 billion to VZW. Sale- AT&T to Cingular for $41 billion
