in the Article: Sprint Packages 40GB Shared Plan with Amazon Prime forum

I don't need advertising or companies telling me who is or isn't fast and reliable. I've had all the networks over the years and Sprint is 4 out of 4 for a reason. If they were as great as you are implying they are, people would be flocking to them, especially with the Amazon deal. Why is this not happening? Facts my friend....facts. Sprint sucks. And no matter how you try to spin it, they still suck and you ...

I don't want a concerted effort. Word Flow is already out and Gboard is in. Grave error in judgment on Microsofts part.

They don't need to, sprint is # 4 out of 4. Why would they waste ad dollars? And "in the courtroom"? No idea what that means. No one can sue because their phone is slow. Its pretty common knowledge that Sprint is atrocious anyways, so hard to sue with that reputation. You must be one of those annoying sprint salesman hanging out around the front of the Sprint store at malls bothering people walking by with your intrusive "hey ...

Sprint reeks of desperation. I feel sorry for anyone who has to suffer with their horrendously slow data speeds. Are they also giving out free AOL discs so that you can sign up with AOL dial up service?

Gboard wins over Word Flow
May 13, 2016, 7:39 PM
in the Article: Review: GBoard and Word Flow Keyboards for iPhone forum

The major difference i've noticed between Word Flow and Gboard is that Word Flow does not have cuss words enabled when swiping. This is an absolute deal killer. I thought after typing a word in a few times that Word Flow would begin to memorize my words and learn but, nope. Gboard blows Word Flow outta the water already. Who doesn't cuss? Nothing more frustrating that trying to type a cuss word and some crap predictive word pops up ...

I guess that's why we have choices. If you want a 5.7 inch phone, they are available. I don't want a phone that big. I've always said 5.3 is a sweet spot. So I guess we can both be happy, I can get my 5.3 in phone and you can go find a 5.7 in phone.

in the Article: AT&T Brings Back Unlimited Data for TV Customers forum

Now I'll throw some numbers at you. Years ago you could get the new iPhone on contract for $200, maybe $300 tops with a 24 month contract. Now, either you pay $900 up front or "lease" the phone for up to 30 months with AT&T, and pay $900 for the phone. But somehow, these phone companies have ditched contracts and its better for the consumer. Yay! Please explain how this is better for the consumer and how these ...

ANY throttling is not unlimited, PERIOD. Completely misleading advertising. I live in Phoenix, 6th most populated city in the U.S., please tell me the times when a "tower I'm on is NOT congested".

what a scam
Jan 12, 2016, 8:29 AM
in the Article: AT&T Brings Back Unlimited Data for TV Customers forum

The catch is, it locks you into your contract with Directv. If you ever decide to leave Directv, you lose the phone plan. Also, it clearly states on their website that you will be throttled after 22GB of data. That is not unlimited. Misleading advertising wins again. Should be advertised as a 22GB plan for $100 along with a continuous Directv contract. NOTHING is ever in the consumers favor.....NOTHING! Please read the fine print and between the lines people.

lol, its definitely NOT working. Sprint is atrocious. It may work for people living in HIckory Stick, Arkansas, but 5 kbps download speeds are not acceptable to those of us in major cities. I will never have Sprint, but I love to laugh at people who do.

This is a Windows version of the phone, no one cares about Android. Hence, everyone is ignoring you and you have no responses.

in the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (CDMA) forum

Luckily we have choices. I think 5.1 is way too small. If I wanted that small of a phone I would get an HTC One M8 or Lumia Icon. I think 5.5 or 5.7 is the right size. I also think iOS is a much better operating system than Android. See what happened there? I disagreed with everything you had to say. I get what I want and you get what you want. Opinions are like a-holes. I just want ...

Interesting....i made the switch last December after years of iOS and Android and I couldn't be happier. I guess you're one of those who just can't live without their 4th party weather app. I've been completely happy and impressed with WP.

Looks like there is one major downfall with this. It's on Sprint. So that makes it basically a useless brick.

LOL @ "service disruptions associated with the company’s ongoing network overhaul." I believe that's been going on for about 10 years now. Still waiting to hear about the promised WIMAX in Phoenix, 6th most populated city in the U.S. Let's get SPARK up and running in Waukegan, Illinois before Phoenix, that will make excellent business sense!!! LOL @ sprint and their poor customers.

Based on your long response i'm left with trying to decide one of two things. You work for Samsung, or you have impossibly low standards. Samsung products are crap, plain and simple. Cheap, plastic, camera is absolutely atrocious, etc etc. Had the S4 for a couple months and what a POS....had to take ten pics to get one good one, have read the S5 is no better. Android is played out. I moved to Windows and could not be ...

heh, nice try. I've never had t-mobile. I'm all about AT&T and their blazing LTE speeds. I've got Sprint for my work iPhone and don't even touch the thing. The coverage is atrocious in Phoenix and data speeds are non existent. But as long you get Sprint coverage in your apartment in Grand Forks, North Dakota, thats all that matters. Kudos.

Re: It also covers phone payments

in the Article: Sprint to Cover Up to $650 for Switchers forum

The difference is that Sprint is absolutely atrocious. Their coverage is crap and their data speeds are even worse. It boggles my mind how they are even in business. Anyone who goes from any service to Sprint is going from walking around with a Zippo to rubbing two sticks together.

Plastic is a bad choice because it makes the phone feel ridiculously cheap. Alternate materials would be anything besides plastic that make the phone not feel cheap. Does that response meet your requirements?

I don't see anything that you listed that an average daily user needs. You list a "couple of your banking apps". All major ones are there, can you list your major banking apps that arent there? I stated that all "major" apps are available. If you are referring to some 3rd party app for your bank in the Appalachian Mountains then true, prolly not there. And for your "buggy" Spotify app, I could go on for days about the ...

what exactly is "full app support"? I use a Nokia Windows phone and every major app I need is there. People complaining about the Windows app store are the people who want some ridiculous 3rd party weather app that is garbage and not needed. Windows OS is a breath of fresh air compared to iOS and Android. Get real when complaining about Apps. Please list the major apps that are not available that an average daily user will not ...

I think anyone with common sense can figure it out. When every article that mentions Apple selling something do they need to mention the Apple "store" is selling it? I mean....seriously.....wow.

Uhhhh, say wha? The article is stating that the Microsoft store will be selling this phone. Did you also comment on the article that stated that Best Buy is selling the Nexus 5 and correct them to tell them "Best Buy is not selling these, they were developed and built by Google and they are the current ones selling this phone, not Best Buy".

I"m in the EXACT same boat. Paid full price for the Note 2. Love the specs, absolutely hate the plastic build. The size is awesome, but haven't been a big fan of the over saturated colors with Samsung (my opinion) or the horrible plastic build. If the HTC One was 5 inches, i'd pay full price without hesitation, it looks absolutely gorgeous, plus I love the 1080p display. But 4.7 is just too small. ...

Totally agree with the post from perdition. Sprint is beyond atrocious in Phoenix, the 6th most populated city in the U.S. We're still waiting for the promised WIMAX, which is why I love to laugh at all the sprint fans who say "LTE is coming". Good luck with that wait. And to all the people who love to brag that sprint "doesn't rape your wallet", well....you get what you pay for. I gladly pay $100 ...

LOL @ the person who posted "I'm doing just fine with my 3g speeds on Sprint, and so is everybody I know". Obviously from someone who could care less how slow their connection speed is. Also...good luck to all those waiting for Sprint LTE. Phoenix is still waiting for the promised WIMAX coverage. Sprints days are numbered...i'm surprised they are still in business now.
