The first iPhone had to be hooked up to iTunes to be activated. They should be activated at the store for you unless she ordered it as a replacement, in which case yes, she needs to hook it up to iTunes to activate it for you. It's VERY simple. As far as the credit card goes, she needs to put one on so when she makes purchases it'll justy charge they card. Also, the credit/debit card is used to ...

Blackberries are not easy to use for someone who has never had one. I've had blackberrie's before and much prefer Andoid. If you're going to be doing a good amount of web browsing or anything web related, you'll want to go Lg Optimus because the blackberry web browser is inherintly slower. It's just the way it's made. If you're looking for something nice without breaking the bank, you might want to check out the HTC EVO Shift. It's around $150 ...

Pretty sure Xerox SOLD Apple the mouse... weird, PC's seem to use that very same stolen device! And as far as being more user friendly... You should be a stand up comic!! You'd sell out the venues all the time!! Innovative you say? It sure was... cuz it looked NOTHING like an iPhone's UI. At all...

Cuz it's Sprint's fault...

You've said the same things in two different posts dude. You should probably come up with a new argument. I mean, last time I looked at the UI of an android phone it semmed awfully.... familiar to me. Weird...

People who hate Apple are usually die-hard Android fans. Traits of the fandroids include: 1. Love for unstable OS's. 2. Love waiting for updates based on what phone and carrier they have. IF they ever get them. 3. Love for removable batteries. They like this because it is reassuring to them that when they have issues, they can pull the battery. Had Google not rushed Android, they might not have that issue. 4. Love for not having a place to backup and sync ...

tmorep03, ALL manufacturers state in their terms and conditions that they may record and track your location. GOOGLE, HTC, RIM, SAMSUNG, WINDOWS, PALM.. all of them. It's not just Apple. The only reason that was found is because Apple actually makes a tool to sync and back up ALL the data on their phone *cough cough HTC cough*...

I mean I understand why Sprint is doing what they're doing, but let's be realistic... AT&T is gonna pay out the butt to the government so they approve the merger. While I think it would most likely be bad, it could also have some positive outcomes.... maybe lol

Personally, I think Sprint is just scared, and they have every right to be. Big Red will stay competitive, but sprint has their head so far up their arse it's not even funny. One of two things will happen if "the man" approves the merger: 1. Sprint will be forced to sell to Big Red, and then I'll be out of a job. 2. Sprint will buy up what's left (US Cellular, Metro PCS, Clearwire) and continue to struggle.

If the AT&T/T-Mobile merger goes through...

Sprint will be the only national carrier that doesn't have the iPhone.... way to be competitive.

I work for a partner store and we charge $5 to take a payment. It sucks, yes. But it costs us $2 to use the payment system everytime we take a payment. We used to waive it because we have a corp store 1/4 mile away, but our store loses about $1,000/mo if we don't.

I agree. I love the UI and it could be cheaper. But I don't talk on my phone much at all. I use it mainly for texting, web, and apps (most of which were free :p) I think it's a matter of opinion, and therefore don't think it logical for someone to hate a phone or company for completely ill-legitment reasons. No one can deny that the iPhone was a game changer and a truly revolutionary device, paving the ...

people don't like the iPhone? I have one. True, I love it. But I've also had blackberries, palms, and windows devices. I like the iPhone because it just works and has yet to fail me.

I agree. chiccora, either you're an uninformed customer, or a VERY uninformed Sprint employee. The rate plan price is the PRIMARY determining factor in of you're going to be a silver or gold premier customer... Please take the time to research topics before you regurgitate on here.

And what do you think VZW is going to do for you in June when the new iPhone comes out...? You really think they're going to let you renew, again, after five months??? I understand everyone on Big Red wanting the iPhone 4, but you do realize that you have a phone that's going to be outdated in about four months....right?

The Epic Is a nice phone, however, its only drawback is that it's big and rather bulky compared to the rest of sprints phone lineup. Actually, it IS the biggest. and in my opinion, the Shift has a better looking screen than the epic. I know the Epic has the AMOLED display, but really, how often do you stand with your back to the sun and have it beating on your screen. Plus, the Shift just "feels" a little ...

I guess my biggest gripe with Android is that Google starts working on the next version before they release the previous version. Some of our phones have 2.2, some have 2.1, and now Google is releasing 2.3? To me it just seems that Google is trying to keep their head above water in competing with Apple. And regarding iOS, why fix it if it ain't broken? lol

First of all, that antenna issue only affected a small percentage of customers. And if you hold certain phones a certain way, they will loose signal. Verizon's iP4 already has a death grip called the death hug. And name me ONE smartphone that has never needed an update after launch to fix a bug.

T-Mobile is gonna get in bed with Sprint. Sprint sold off part of their company to Clearwire, and Clearwire is who makes their 4G networ, right? T-Mobile stated "...including partnering with other companies" Just food for thought.

I can tell you this friend: Apple has ALOT of strings they pull when it comes to what the carrier has to offer for their phone, and what must be required for their phone. I guarantee that if you get an iPhone, your data useage will go up. Comparing a Droid X to an iPhone 4 is like comparing a Toyota to a Nissan. They're both basically the same thing, it's just whats under the hood that;s different. As I ...

First of all, the amount of MP a camera has means hardly anything. The iPhone 4 has a 5mp camera and the EVO has 8mp, yet the iPhone 4's pics look alot better. Not to mention that the video with the EVO (even in 720p look like crap). And let's talk about the HDMI out port. WHO USES THAT? I sure don't. The HDMI out port is another gimmic by manufacturers so you can say "Oh, but MY phone ...

Black_beard, the 79.99 includes 4G. you kinda just shot yourself in the foot there... I mean, who calls landlines all that much anymore anyway. And if I wanted to top you, I could just talk about the Simply Everything plan, which IS unlimted everything for 109.99 minus any discounts he might get. Now you're gonna say "oh, well that's $10/mo more than t-mobile". Well, friend, Sprint is a lot bigger company with ALOT more coverage...
