Why not bring the Z5 Premium to the states too?

That's 22gb of data per line on the account not 22gb per account and ALL lines have to fall under that

in the Article: T-Mobile Offers $200 to Sprint Customers forum

Was finally able to get to a live Tmob tech and he clarified that the plan is not $45/mo... it's actually $95/mo... the $45 is simply for the data and doesn't include any calling plans which MUST be added at $50/mo. For me that's not worth it....

in the Article: T-Mobile Offers $200 to Sprint Customers forum

um... what? The article says available starting Nov 26 and my question was How do I port in my line to get their unlimited plan for $45? I don't see that option anywhere on their webpage and their chat rep couldn't find it nor had "she" even heard of it.

Where is this deal on their website?

in the Article: T-Mobile Offers $200 to Sprint Customers forum

I looked on their site and was unable to find it... I even chatting with one of their agents who could not find the deal in question.... I'm on a Sprint SERO plan and it's finally time to cut loose from them. This is the perfect opportunity but can't figure out how to take advantage of it.

I bought this watch last Thursday at AT&T and returned it Friday morning as soon as they opened. To say it is beyond useless is an understatement. No settings to configure to your personal taste apps don't work can't install anything and the one thing it should be good at, making calls, was an exercise in futility. The only redeeming quality is that it is quite a nice looking device and felt good while wearing it. And despite initial ...

Seriously... 10gb of data, unlimited texting, calling through North America AND unlimited texting through 38 other countries? All on AT&Ts network? I may be dropping my Sprint SERO plan

That's 10gb total for all 4 lines with Sprint... Tmobile is 10gb for EACH line. Big difference.

what their customers want... awesome specs all around, testing the waters on some different technology and keeping removable battery and memory card slot. Winning

"haven't resonated with consumers as the company hoped," They sealed in the battery and removed expandable memory options. Those were the biggest things they had going for them

Don't see anything about when this program starts but I tried to enroll in it today from my iPhone and no matter which carrier I chose or which phone I chose it gave me "this device is not available right now. Select a different device or check back later"

needs to come in and fire the entire design staff.... I don't think it's a lack of innovation because Moto has some of the best features available but they are now some of the crap ugliest phones.

old school feel with new tech built in Some pretty impressive specs crammed into that little thing. Tiny battery won't help it win any prizes for withstanding an entire day of use though. If this comes to the US I will snatch one up Do not like the name though...

I'm not sure I understand how that works. If you have a SIM card in the tray you can't use a memory card, and vice versa? Or the tray has a slot for both a SIM card and a memory card?

in the Article: Hands On with the Moto X forum

I absolutely detest Lenovo's design implementation, so cookie-cutter like their computers. Motorola had a very nice style to their Moto X designs. I don't personally like this design at all. And making the Pure edition only available in 5.7" is a bad idea too.

Samsung tried this a couple years ago with their Galaxy line and it was not well received This appears to be a much better camera attached to a phone with much better specs but no gorilla glass or damage resistance features Price is too high

32gb only?

No expansion and only 32gb? Not a deal breaker completely but certainly a dissapointment Nice to see a larger battery though

Sure, no more security having 990000 possible code combinations to prevent algorithmic attacks :roll:

in the Article: Apple to Improve Security by Requiring 6-Digit Passcodes forum

Because not everyone who has an iPhone has a 5S or later and those who do not all of them want to use the finger print feature. This offers more security... as simple as that

in the Article: FCC Weighing Whether to Award Dish's AWS-3 Discounts forum

AT&T and Verizon are upset that they didn't exploit this same loophole. I have no problems that DISH took advantage of this... what I do have a problem with is that DISH will now own more spectrum that it won't use.
