Re: Paylo, the low-cost provider run by Virgin Mobile...

That would be Virgin Mobile the low cost provider run by Sprint

in the Article: AT&T Intros Online Ordering with In-Store Pickup forum

Sprint has been doing this for some time. It gives the benefit of buying online to get "Web only" exclusive deals with the convenience of picking up at the store. It saves on shipping costs for AT&T where they would normally give "free" overnight shipping. There are a multitude of ways this is good for both consumer and company and it has nothing to do with anything "status" related

That letter might, though highly unlikely, carry more weight were it not littered with grammatical and spelling errors.

in the Article: OnePlus One Aims to Steal Sales from Flagships forum

The link on their site to "find out how to get one for $1" doesn't really tell you anything.. just asks you for your email address which then sends you a confirmation/verification email which gives you a link that takes you back to the same webpage with the same round-and-round links. I feel I'm going to be entering Spamville

Agreed.... a lot of people have been clamoring for a full physical keyboard on the high end phones... however, there are still a good number of people who don't need all the apps and jazziness that go along with high end phones and feature phones fill that void.

A step in the right direction going back to feature phones... not so much with the full keyboard... doesn't matter either way about the full keyboard because I'd still be able to T9 with the phone keys

A step in the right direction!

in the Article: Kyocera Delivers A Good Old Fashioned Slider to Sprint forum

I'd love a great feature phone the way they used to be made with a modern twist... a great camera. Give me a good old fashion flip phone, sturdy, great reception, loud ear piece and a great camera... I can text better with T9 than with a full keyboard.

Don't let that scare you away... it's the same camera that was on the original One and it's great!

... knowing how competitive the smartphone market is, why would the come to the table with inferior products? Voice dialing, fine, cool... quad core processore, fine, cool... but an awful display and only 3G support. Fire your entire R&D team

Will not connect to 4G/LTE at all.
Dec 6, 2013, 8:47 AM
in the LG G2 (Sprint) forum

What is the deal with this phone!! It will not connect to 4g no matter what I try. I live in the middle of a 4g area and I work in the strong end of a 4g area but this phone will not connect to it .... at all. Been 3G since I activated it. Side by side with my Moto X which has nearly full bars of 4G this G2 is stuck in 3G... I've read this complaint ...

Re: Speaker phone

in the Motorola Moto X (Verizon) forum

Speaker phone is terrible on the X. At full volume it is muffly and crackly and it's still terribly quiet. It's the worst feature of this phone. But it is full duplex

Is that $20 per phone?
Nov 14, 2013, 12:25 PM
in the Article: Sprint to Offer At Least $20 for Recycled Phones forum

I don't see it in the article and since they did it last year maybe someone participated and would know the answer

True. Sprint is known not to carry major devices that other carriers do carry. I wouldn't hold my breath for anything new and earth shattering from Apple any time soon. The G2 is an interesting device with some of the new hardware integration. I'll be checking it out

Yeah "Wooooo"... they announce their availability a week after the other carriers and make it available a month after them. Way to stay ahead of the curve Sprint. As usual, you suck!

in the Article: Google Says Curt Goodbye to SMS Search forum

This was the single greatest tool ever produced by Google. It was available before most browsers were capable of displaying web content. It was, until the moment they shut it down, faster than any web browser for finding information. It was available to anyone with a cell phone and text plan. I am sad and disappointed that this incredible feature is gone.

Re: I didn't know they had a Blackberry App
Mar 1, 2013, 9:48 PM
in the Article: Yahoo to Cut More Services, Including BlackBerry App forum

they don't have a BB app.... never have. Misleading article aimed at further discrediting Blacbkerry. No surprise, really, considering Mayer's unfounded contempt for the company. Yahoo is a terrible company with terrible products...Blackberry should send them a Thank You note for doing this public service

No music playback....
Nov 29, 2012, 2:32 PM
in the Kyocera DuraXT / DuraPro forum

I was seriously considering ditching my Blackberry for this phone until I read that you cannot play music on it. There is no music player and no file management feature to find/use .mp3(or the like).... With that massive external speaker setup that should have been a priority element.

Great thread. "You guys are so dumb"... you should have followed that up with "I'm in 2nd grade and don't know how to express my feelings yet"

A little late to the party. Despite what's written in the specs on this site the phone DOES have full duplex.

Re: Opera Mini or Bolt
Jun 2, 2010, 8:02 AM
in the BlackBerry Bold 9650 forum

As reported in your other thread, Opermini does not work on the Bold. Confirmed by several others on sprintusers. It either locks up completely or the cursor goes completely haywire and you can't do anything. Bolt appears to be substantially more solid. However, I still have not found any problems with speed or compatibility with the BB browser.

Re: Question about the browser
May 25, 2010, 7:52 PM
in the BlackBerry Bold 9650 forum

No problems on my browser.... yet. However, I did download OperaMini.... what a nightmare that has been. So far I have had to wipe my Bold and rebuild due to it completely locking up even after pulling the battery.

Half duplex ... really?
Apr 28, 2010, 9:19 AM
in the BlackBerry Bold 9650 forum

It's 2010. We have cameras built into phones that rival top market devices, wifi, super fast data... essentially a portable computer that fits into your pocket... Yet they choose to outfit this high end device with a HALF DUPLEX speaker phone? Seriously? I haven't followed Berry devices for a long time but is this typical for them? I use my speaker phone on all of my phones almost exclusively and a full duplex speaker is essential.

Re: LG muziq or KATANA dlx
Aug 27, 2007, 1:51 PM
in the LG Muziq / AX-565 / UX-565 forum

The muziq has bigger keys but offers zero tactile feedback so texting isn't as easy as you would think. Reception is a non-issue. Pretty even between both phones. Battery life for the muziq is not great. I have had 2 of them but the battery life was very different between both the phones. The first I had to charge every 12 hours with minimal use. The second I charged every day and a half with the same amount of use. Definitely ...

There are no issues. By default predictive text is turned on and it's annoying but it's easy to turn off.

Is this free? I can download the software and drivers but after I try to install it tells me that I have to reboot to complete installation and once I reboot it tells me that the install.exe file is not found and I can't continue... stuck in a loop.
