This happened with Verizon a while back as well. I love how people try and compare companies ... like one is less shady. They're major corporations with ties into government... they're all out to get you, not just one company. It's like when people vote and pick the lesser of two evils... they're both evil... one just has a cooler suit.

Eh, to each his/her/shis own. I agree, though. I think there needs to be more android devices with a physical QWERTY keyboard. If you can save some extra cash I reccomend the MotoFlipside. Android 2.1 with qwerty keyboard. Not a bad device. You can grab them on e-bay for pretty cheap.

in the Article: AT&T 'Working On' Shared Data Plans forum

98% of people use less than 2GB of data. That means 2% of smartphone owners are going over the 2GB. I'm sure it's a fairly large number considering all of AT&T's customers... but, it's not like you're getting charged per KB used once you go over. It's 10 bucks per GB after that. The next plan up is 5GB for 60 or 50 bucks depending on if your device is 3G or 4G. And WIFI is everywhere... I ...

That's seriously the dumbest analogy I've ever heard. First off... food is in constant supply for a buffet. SO, you can promise ALL YOU CAN EAT. And most buffets will kick you out if you have been there longer than 3 hours. So, your analogy fails on two levels.

My question is how did the FCC get this powerful? It's just an annoyance bleeping curse words and controlling our every move. They are useless from a consumer standpoint. I say get rid of the FCC and have America take a vote. Yes or No. Just check a box.

Well, there are people who write good reports. It's just slightly more rare. I've been in retail (phones, clothes etc) for 11 years on and off. Ever wonder why managers rarely take a complaint seriously? If the manager knows your work ethic, they will disguard any complaint.

Yeah, that makes sense. There's just a lot of DUMB people in the world. Another example is the Android market. Great applications suffer 3 star ratings due to stupid consumers. Alot of Home Replacement Aps (Launchers, which I use because I get so bored with the standard TW Launcher) get poor ratings because, "I cannot find in my aps" etc. Makes me scream, "It's a LAUNCHER!!!!!!!" It's just hard to take consumer reports seriously. A ...

Another way to think of it... How many negative user reviews on phonescoop make kind of rediculous claims? For instance, the Pantech Persuit got a User Review that said the screen just cracked... I'm willing to bet that's a bit of a stretch. Really? Your kid didn't press to hard on the screen or drop it? Suuuuure. Plus, out of context any phone can be a peice of crap... just like any company can be. If I wanted ...

This isn't a big deal... AT&T is a main share holder... it's kind of like if I'm borrowing your ipod because you got a new one... I'm gonna give you some money for letting me keep it a while, and eventually give you more money.

It also had nothing to do with what you just said. You know what else it has nothing to do with... Big League Chew. Are we talking about that? No. You see, there's this thing that happens in conversations and/or threads online. The topic tends to evolve into another topic and so on. Sooooo... now I want Big League Chew.

No joke. I never said AT&T cares about me. I pay them, they let me upgrade every two years or so. Pretty simple transaction. If I wasn't happy with AT&T I'd go to some other corporate monster. It's all the same.

4G isn't real, it's a marketing ploy. That's not to say it won't be real in the near future... but, for those of you buying the "latest" and "Greatest" 4G devices... don't waste your time. Well, I mean, the devices claiming to be 4G are great devices... but, in 2 or 3 years you'll be upgrading to a real 4G device... so, that being said... I lost my train of thought. Hmmmm... these numbers need an "*" next ...

Couldn't have said it better myself. I've been with AT&T for a long time, and I'm friggin' happy they are building their network, getting high end phones (other than the iphone) and really attempting to have the best network available. It's about damn time. Kudos, AT&T.

I agree with TBone. There's nothing wrong with the X10. Most of my buddies who ended up with that phone (a penny at best buy) love it. The processor wouldn't handle Froyo, I'm willing to bet on that. But for what the X10 is... it's a great phone. SE has consistantly makes great phones... even when flip and/or slide phones were the way of the world.

True. But 48 MB isn't enough to change a 16GB phone to a 14GB phone. The captivate, fresh out of the box, as is, equals 13.2 GB I believe (don't quote me). This means that 3 GB of bloatware is taking up some major space. Then again, you can buy a 32 GB card and BAM.

Point being directed back at the article. Law suits. If I remember right, the HP tab (released years before the ipad) was VERY similar in design... so, HP should sue everyone. lol. I do agree that the new tabs are a zillion times better, but if Apple can sue for a design similarity then so can HP, LG, Gateway etc.

One more thing ... I'm sure you are employeed somewhere and have specific customers you just can't stand. It happens in every business, including health care... As a whole, I have great customers. But when some idiot interrupts me while I'm with a paying customer to ask questions about the merger... that's when I say, "I'm sorry, you'll have to wait in line"

I was calling everyone on phonescoop weirdos, and quoting from Muppets. Sam The Eagle... duh. Should I call the Wahmbulance? Plus, I don't work for corporate AT&T, so there goes your theory. I personally take a lot of time with customers, call them back 3 months later to make sure their phones are great and see if there's anything they need (internet service on their phones, at their house, accessories etc.) for a discounted bundled price. You know ...

Word. I was going to wait a year before I root... then an Otterbox scratched my phone by putting slight scratches at the bottom of the screen. This was my Q to not care anymore, but I still haven't rooted my phone. I've also found that GoLauncher and other replacement homes have the capability to hide any ap you want hidden. It's nice, but it does not free memory. I'm just tired of a 16 GB phone only ...
