Re: Sounds great, But.....

in the Article: Sony Debuts the Z Ultra with 6.4-Inch HD Display forum

Better bring an extension cord with you... Or at least 5 backup batteries to keep that thing going... I don't understand who could really get full use out of a 6.4" phone... The Note/Note II are huge phones, but are still useable.. just hard to hold with one hand (and I have pretty good sized hands) but this is just ridiculous.... I don't really want this phone.... but I don't want to at least mess with it just to ...

I have never heard of any carrier covering a phone for water damage, even if the phone is water resistant..... Highly doubted Imho. I guess only time will tell though.

Truthfully.. yeah the taxpayers are probably paying for this... Just like the phone plans from Assurance Wireless or the "Obama Phones"... Taxpayers and additonal charges on your existing cell phone and landline lines. Such as the Federal Access Charge you probably already see on your bill helps fund these programs...

As far as cancelling your contract....

The only section that really references this is kinda loosely worded which is: We may change any terms, conditions, rates, fees, expenses, or charges regarding your Services at any time. We will provide you with notice of material changes (other than changes to governmental fees, proportional charges for governmental mandates, roaming rates or administrative charges) either in your monthly bill or separately. You understand and agree that State and Federal Universal Service Fees and other governmentally imposed fees, whether or ...

Yes as previously stated by Kanima cross upgrades are pretty standard. Just make sure when you go to do the cross upgrade you inform the rep what you are doing so they don't activate the phone on her line and deactivate her current phone in the process.

Yup. I will add more if I can think of any or if I find any... I would appriciate if anyone can add anymore onto the list to help.... I think I may have cracked the code on mine.... Based on the results they are just using a content filter, and then blocking some specific sites.... This is why sites like Hasbro, Barie and Mattel show up, but others do not.... Those particualar sites are not getting blocked by the ...

Yeah, this will definately be a nice improvement with the Customization center.... The rest doesn't sound all the intriging as of yet.... The Nexus program sounds like a good idea though... To filter out the high end androids vs the crap.

Android 4.2 Rumors

in the Android forum

What have you heard? This is what I have found on Digital Trends. According to Android and Me, taking information from a trusted source (the same individual that shared info on the LG Nexus), Android 4.2 is going to include a large number of changes. The most exciting rumored improvements are a new Customization Center, revamped Nexus program, and battery-saving Project Roadrunner. We already know what to expect from the next Nexus device, but until now Android 4.2 rumors have ...

Purple Lens issues- IPhone 5
Oct 9, 2012, 7:12 PM
in the iOS forum

Apple has responded to the fallout over the iPhone 5's purple lens flare effect, saying it's due to position and the device's smaller camera. Apple is pointing the finger of blame squarely back at iPhone 5 users complaining about a purple lens flare effect the smartphone’s camera is creating. In a public support document, Apple says: “Most small cameras, including those in every generation of iPhone, may exhibit some form of flare at the end of the frame when capturing an ...

By comparison, the same sources claim that Amazon only has half that many Kindle Fire HD tablets on order. ...

Blackmarket Stores

in the Android forum

Any suggestion on blackmarket app stores? What do you think is the best one? I have used: 4Shared Aptoide Blapktmarket AppP lanet (when it worked) Blackmarket Store So far I have had the best luck with 4shared and Aptoide..... 4Shared kinda bugs me to use because you never really know what you are going to get. There is alot of spam in there... Never had an issue with any viruses or anything though. Suggestions?

Re: I definitely recommend a torrent program.

in the Android forum

Any particualar program to recommend? I have tried a few, but the download speeds are so slow even on my 10Mbs wifi.... Tops out at about 306/kbs, which isn't bad, but it sucks if you are downloading a discography.... I have tried redtorrent on Android, and a few others. I don't have a program right now, because I just sync them from my computer now. Any Suggestions?

in the forum

This may be because of my companies firewalls, but in the forums section, if you select "More Carriers" or "More Manufactuers" it doesn't do anything. "More OS's" however does work. The only way I can access other carriers or other manufactuers from the site is being going into either Carriers Link or OSes link and selecting them there. Is anyone else having this issue?

Pretty good game, something you can play to just kinda kill time. Gets pretty hard after a while, especially if you don't keep track of your Ammo, right now I am kinda stuck with hardly any Ammo, and I have to wait to get the daily bonus to keep playing to buy more. First person stationary shooting, Kinda like Skeet shooting, but with Zombies.

Re: Siri and Other Speech Recognition Apps
Oct 4, 2012, 3:24 PM
in the General forum

I personally think it is easier to use something like Direct Connect or PTT. However, texting can be more convenient. I personally don't use hardly any apps such as Siri, with the exception of the Voice Search built into Google Maps. Sometime Speech to Text when I am texting (if I'm drunk, Swype sucks when your drunk) Texting is more convenient for the fact that everyone doesn't need to hear your business so you can be more discrete about it.
