Re: Klondike Bar.
I was thinking the same thing. Best name for the letter K
Re: He answered you perfectly.
The main reason is the fact that no one would buy a phone at a rebate price for more then 299. VZW has just been making money off of LTE devices bc they were the first to offer it and no one else had it yet. Y not make money if u r the only one who offers LTE with majority of the US population. That is the reason y I believe this was done. (Please don't try to ...
I am do for upgrade in a few months and now u want to do this. I am loving my Alltel plan. I really am wanting to change from my HTC Thunderbolt but now I'm thinking bout buying at full price phone to keep my plan. I lived u VZW and u pulled this on me. Well F@k u.
They are referring to 3rd Ecosystem in the 4G LTE network.
Just quick or expand
They have the least amount of bouncing back compare to WebOS. At least WebOS will hopefully have the higher end if they license the OS like they say they may do. RIM should do the same. Most businesses are moving pass RIM and using iOS or Android. Time for change RIM or u will be instinct.
Re: What about Droid 3??
First of all. It's not up to the carrier to make the updates. Its up to the manufacture to make them. Yes the carrier can push it but it depends on sales. It's not their fought u bright a crappy device that was known to fail from the beginning. Those devices will be the last if they still stand when time passes on. Invest in HTC. They still care for older devices.
POST CORRECTION:Re: A fifth nationwide wireless provider IS best for the public FCC!!!!!
l I agree with u 100% I am a VZW fan but still maintain my Alltel benefits, I feel some things that the FCC does is just what I call going with the flow. Me personally, I would love for VZW to succeed in everything bc I'm good with my grandfathered plan with 4G service and looking for better things, but I still would like others to succeed to keep prices at level so if I have to change ...

Well I agree with u 100% I am a VZW fan but still maintain my Alltel benefits, I feel some things that the FCC does is just what I call going with the slow.

All the problems we have been having u could atleast showed us some love. Sine of these phones are a lot older then ours.
Then why would sprint pay them money for them to use their network. I believe the deal is that LS get money from from Sprint to use their spectrum and build the LTE out in that portion which LS will have access to and Sprint users will have access to as well. Example: (just a opinion not fact)It's just like sprint buying another company and have to pay less to money so they don't have to build it out ...
Sprint really is in need for this deal to fall thru so they can have help with the build out of their LTE network. I wonder how slow their LTE network will deploy if this deal fails?
Great reply. I like this comment!
Re: test market
It cannot affect no one bc there are no LTE devices out there for anyone to be affected. :lol: :lol:
Why AT&T wants T-Mobile!
Only reason why I see this is because they will have the advantage when it comes down to the international carriers. Most companies operate within and outside of the U.S. This gives them the advantage within the states because they will not have their customers worried too much bout buying a certain phone. LTE is not worldwide yet so GSM gives them the advantage. Plus more resellers woo come as well. Also cannot forget the spectrum if at anytime ...
Re: What? have we gone mad? Regulate this!
All theory stating is that VZW is giving up spectrum in a area they built for LTE but the location is not buying at all. When LTE WAS release in Chicago VZW phones did not seek. So out of all locations VZW started offering 50.00 off on LTE phones which did not include 2year upgrade. Chicago is just not buying into VZW LTE. Why not sell off after you built into it already and much if nothing in outcome. ...
Just 1 Question!
What's the difference in this merger then the VZW/ALLTEL merger? I'm sure majority of the people here were against it. Why would yhou want to stop someone who wants out the game but still wants to get paid also. When it comes down to it someone else other then Sprint will be next in line to take T-Mobile's place.
iphones can be used on T-Mobile.
Well people are still getting iphones on tmobile anyways. IPhone is selling unlocked phones too. I had people come to me with iphones on their tmobile acct. They may not get all the assistants needed by tmobile but they can get it on their acct. So the cuz is still happen regardless if tmobile sells it or not.
Re: Battery Life
Taking widgets on the home screen that are constantly loading. this is the main cause of battery drain. if you have a lot of widgets on the home screens then thats going to affect your battery because these widgets are constantly running.
Re: Great Idea!
Great idea but only problem is WIFI us always not available. So let's say for example you are out and need that important email or need to locate a place on the map. WIFI can't save you then. Their data must really be limited if they are really pushing WIFI so hard. That's worse then being capped at 2GB of data. Sons may get frustrated because of that. We will just have to wait and see.
Well I know for a fact the HTC Thunderbolt will not get it just because ofall the issues its been having with all the other updates and plus they just delivered gingerbread to us. And on another note the HTC Vigor (Thunderbolt 2) will be released soon and I'm sure it will come with ICS in it. I see it being released after the Samsung Nexus for VZW comes out. I give it December or January.
Re: I wonder...
Well that's what they all do. Who just put S/W out there that is not tested. Even the carriers test it too before sending to the phones.
Re: Here we go...
That's an easy answer. Because the phone mainly functions off of data.
Re: I thought i was a vampire
That's why they have this thing called INSURANCE. Physical damage is never covered under warranty unless its a defect that the company knows about. Luke the ipad2. Apple will replace a screen shatter upset if its cracked around the home button.
Re: I dont think this phone will get ICS.
At least they gave some extra on the update. Ice Cream will come soon. But we got a feat that only HTC Sense 3.0 has which is the weather sound effects. I'm not complaining bout anything. I'm just happy the rebooting stopped. Technology fries too fast to have the lastest in software. If ice cream doesn't come it wouldn't matter because I'm going to get the HTC Vigor (Thunderbolt II) which will more likely have it. I'm a fan ...
I don't have Sprint no more but this is the first time in a ling time that they jump head first into something that is a smart decision. I still could care less bout them tho. VZW still will look into deploying it too but just not so soon right now. Plus I get these speeds anyway right now. So VZW will be faster once or if they decide to deploy it, which I believe they will. LTE ...
PEOPLE! STOP B!TCHING
You act like their going to sell your soul. Info like this has always been shared. The internet is full of things like this. Even yahoo, gmail, msn, ,aol, etc... has been doing this for a while so please don't act like this is new. There is always ways out of things like this. If u don't like it then get prepaid. More then likely this will carry over to other carriers too. And don't rely too much ...
Re: Thank You Big Red
There is still roaming involve in it. And also it is still based on prepay coverage. So prepay do not have the royalties of postpaid customers to go in extended coverage areas. But I still say its better then Straight talk. Only because straight talk do not have full coverage as Verizon prepay customers do. Yes they are base on same towers but coverage is not the same in all areas. This is a great deal that Verizon is ...
Drink to this but I still believe Apple will be the same regardless. What do u think?
Re: And don't forget
It will always be flaws in anything new regardless. New phone or OS. RIM is always good in releasing updates once they test it themselves compare to other manufacturer's. Plus they still will keep older OS up to date. Me personally I am a Android user but I was once a blackberry user. Blackberry Tour that is was my last phone tho.
Re: and os7?
I would say it will be available for os7 too. RIM has always been worried bout security if their handsets which is one reason why most business stick with blackberry. They may be behind in the industry but they still popular among businesses and cooperate companies. Android still have security leaks.
Re: and os7?
They probably will just test it on the tablets first before their handsets. This is bc its a smaller market then the handsets and if its a problem then it can be fixed and not affect multiple customers as if it were for their handsets.
As much as I care less bout Apple I still believe they will be around for a while competing with Microsoft and Google (Android).
The HTC Thunderbolt is finally mention in a new update for a application. I would rather Netflix but now their are going up on prices with the dvd's so i guess i will cancel and go with Hulu. I can watch from either my PS3 or phone now. :D :D :D
Re: Apple knows...
My bad "Evolving". Spell check made that correction.
that the top spot they have been holding onto is coming to a end. Right now their phone quality and its capabilities are top notch but "Come on Man". Everyone is not trying to copy everything you guys do. You may have change the way phones are design and made but this doesn't means everyone is copying. The game is en-voling. Why don't you evolve with it. Stop trying to block everyone else success.
HTC Gets Major Props For This!
A company that already makes quality phones and now this. I hope my Thunderbolt is the next in line for this update. 8) 8) 8)
Re: *scratching heard*
True but at least we have the memory for it compare to the Samsung Droid Charge which internal memory is at bare minimum.
Re: HOTSPOT FREE UNTIL...
That's true. And in response to your first post. I will say the data connectivity did increase. I am not dropping down to 1X or loosing my 3G signal. No 4G yet until July 21. We now have My Verizon and I am finally able to download the Rock Band demo that's been sitting on my phone for the longest and was never was able to download with either wifi or mobile connection. I don't know if anyone else ...
