ultimate phone skin solution

I just heard about this provider of custom skins for any portable electronic device including phones. I have not ordered one but the skin options are unlimited. I am thinking of ordering one for my nephew to have a picture of his son in utero while he is in Iraq. The skin material sounds as if it woould also protect the phone a bit (certainly from scratches). I only checked out teh price for moto phones and ...

it will save some percentage of lives and it will contribute to the message that counters the notions that teens have some automatic right to drive and that they are accomplished at it as their parents.

Re: Feds Want Cell Phone Ban for Teen Drivers
Sep 21, 2005, 3:08 PM
in the General forum

some states are placing other restrictions (number of other teens in vehicle, time of day etc.) on teen drivers until they gain more experience.. It is a logical extension to include cell phone use. Thje ban would only involve teens and not restrict having a cell phone but rather calling or receiving calls while driving. I seem to recall research that stated the specific danger with driving and cell phones is in the moment of determining who it is ...

pix place poorly organized

in the Verizon Wireless forum

About two months ago I registered at pix place and began to receive and send messages through the site. It was fairly intuitive so I did not have to read any manuals. Now I come to learn that messages I had sent from the site are deleted after 7 days. The verizon rep I called took 15 minutes to learn this fact and also said that the site is not easy to learn its nuances. We both ...

The unanimous ruling by a three-judge Court of Appeals panel upholds a trial judge's pretrial ruling in favor of a man who ...

Re: USA Wireless Calling Surpasses Wireline Calling
Sep 19, 2005, 12:06 PM
in the Techs & Trends forum

Yes this is a trend for some time. Colorado in fact has about 60% 911 calls coming in from wireless. The problem is multifold under this scenerio. The call may not go through, it may get disconnected midcall, they may not be able to understand your speech, or the 911 call center may not be able to identify where you are located if you can not tell them. Obviously if you do not have a choice ...

unresolved is very different as you described it then no response. the BBB does not kick a firm out if they have a different opinion then the customer or the firm follows their written policy. the issue was that Cingular ignored the customer complaints. typically the BBB will receive a complaint from someone and forward that complaint to the firm contact. with large firm their will be a liason set up with the BBB.

In Denver a carrier's modification of their network for unrelated changes disenabled phase two compliance and rolled compliance back to phase one for many months. this was a known issue and told to the local authoritities ahead of time. The fact is that this can happen with any carrier and not to assume that phase to is current on any particular day.

In colorado the e911 system did not exist 10 years ago and only recently came online in some of the smaller municipalities. This is referring to land lines. The state's emergency management does not coordinate 911 in Colorado or really have anything to do with the emergency centers receiving the calls. They are all locally controlled and coordinated. The funds collected via the tarrif does go to the PSAP but can be used for a variety ...

the BBB keeps track of the number of complaints for each firm but the critical issue is here Cingular did not even respond to the complaints. The BBB appreciates that any large firm particularly those int his industry will receive a larger number of complaints then anyother small firm. They take that into account. Last year I was part of a committee that awarded the BBB "Torch Award" for high ethics for local businesses. Our nomination went ...

Re: programming suggestion for VZW
Sep 10, 2005, 7:36 AM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

its a curious thing. VZW is always reminding folks and suggesting that it be done once per month yet per the previous posters comments, if everyone actually followed VZW advice they could not handle the traffic. I assume that would be true even if VZW handsets were programmed to update on a signal from VZW when traffic was lower and the phone was not in use by its user.

Eric: thanks for the e911 piece. it was very useful and informative. I am currently doing additional research on the status locally in Colorado. I may in fact be able to get coverage in a prominant local weekly newspaper. You mentioned that some of the funds have been diverted from psap development. I had contacted the local NENA chapter president and she says not in CO. she stated they have received all money they were supposed to. ...

the pics from my 815 are actually quite good considering they come from a phone. the video is not nearly as good. Obviously you do not have much flexibility in creating the photoe image but when taken properly they are very enjoyable of my 2 year old son.
