in the Article: Review: Huawei myTouch and myTouch Q for T-Mobile forum

I'm an advanced android user and also tech support for phones, so I was initially concerned when I learned that the new myTouch line was going to be put out by Huawei. This was the company responsible for the Tap and the Comet, so their track record hadn't been the best, but their Springboard tablet was pretty solid, so there was at least a chance for redemption. After playing with them, I can attest that this is a solid ...

You can remove updates and revert back to the original version, however the app is built to check for updates when opened and will not allow it to be used if a newer version is available. It will stop the popups but render the app useless.

get to the point said: Hope they say no! One company should not have to give something up and get nothing in return. Sure they can! This was part of the agreement AT&T committed to when they chose to purchase T-Moble and failed. AT&T only made such a large promise becaus they were sure they would get their way. Now it's come back to bite them.

DT wasn't losing money with T-Mobile US, but was trying to sell off assets to cover their own debt. From the original press release: Timotheus Höttges, CFO Deutsche Telekom: “As the biggest single share holder of AT&T we will also significantly benefit from their strong dividend. With the excellent result of this transaction we will be able to continue to develop our company. At the same time we will be able to reduce our debts and initiate one of the ...

Jayshmay said: What does vehicle speed have to do with retrieving a users location??? It's not meant to retrieve a location from cratch, but to maintain a location when GPS is lost. If I'm travelling down the interstate and lose my gps, based on vehicle speed the program should now be able to estimate where I am rather than stopping at the last point where I had a signal.

in the Article: Hands On with Moneto Secure NFC Payment microSD Card forum

Rich Brome said: A lot of high-end phones have large (16 GB) internal storage, plus a memory card slot. Right, but the newer high end phones will most likely have NFC on board already. For lower end phones it would be useless.

Storage?
Jan 10, 2012, 4:50 PM
in the Article: Hands On with Moneto Secure NFC Payment microSD Card forum

Does the microSD card also provide storage, or is it simply meant to house the NFC unit? I find the idea interesting, but swapping out my card evry time I want to make a payment is not nearly as convenient as just using my debit card.

I've worked in tech support for Magenta for a long time now, and when someone asks if a phone is bad or if we get a lot of complaints about a certain model I usually tell them it's a little unfair to judge, because nobody calls us to tell us everything is working just fine. And for the first ime in the 3 years I've been doing this, that very thing happened. Somebody called in just to say everything was ...

This doesn't apply to all customers. If you already had the 200MB plan with no overage, you are grandfathered in. This is for future activations/account changes only.

I work in technical support, and I am very good at what I do. And if I tell a customer something can't be done, it means just that. Often it's not a technical restriction, it's against policy. So when someone comes back and tells me I "don't know what I'm dong" or asks me to get some one who "knows what they're doing", that sets me off more than anything else. :evil:
