in the Article: Verizon Updates Device Upgrade Eligibility Practices forum

I never understood what everyone's problem is with T-Mobile. Coverage? Maybe I'm lucky that I have amazing T-Mobile coverage where I am. As far as everything else, I am very happy with the pricing of what I get, and their customer service is unparalleled. I stop by the T-Mobile store all the time with small questions and they are always very helpful.

:D Thank you- you answered my question! I'll be keeping my legacy T-Mobile rate plan.

in the Article: Sprint May Make Competitive Bid for MetroPCS forum

Seriously. MetroPCS is kicking ass right now with their offerings. Although T-Mobile's unlimited data package isn't a bad deal either, if you don't feel like going the pre-paid route.

I would think MetroPCS would be a better carrier

in the Article: Cricket Wireless to Sell iPhone 5 Sept. 28 forum

If Apple is going to sell through a low-cost carrier, MetroPCS would be the best option. At least they have a 4G LTE network (and unlimited data- like Apple would prefer).

Wal-mart uses hard-ball tactics to bargain for dirt-cheap prices. Apple refuses to have their products sold below their established market price, and hence won't use Wal-mart.

in the Article: Apple Looking to Sue Bankrupt Kodak forum

Well for decades they put all their money in R&D, only to be beat to market my Microsoft. Even if they had 1st Mover's Advantage, Microsoft would get credit for the developments because of their larger market share, and Apple would look like the copy cats. Apple as a company has been bullied so much in the past, that I just see this as them fighting back. Of course, it is not right. This is just a sign that ...

What are the implications for this?

in the Article: Opera Scoops Up Mobile Theory and 4th Screen forum

I love Opera. Does this mean that I will have more advertisements on my browser, and marketers recording my history to target me with ads? Hopefully it means that Opera will be able to add more features to their products, but I am always worried about what the trade off will be. I have a feeling that it is privacy :cry:

Al Gore actually DID help invent the Internet
Feb 16, 2012, 1:35 PM
in the Article: Apple's New 'Messages' Beta Mixes iMessage with iChat forum

Al Gore actually said that he HELPED create the Internet- something that the guys who DID invent the Internet openly acknowledge and are thankful for. Gore passed legislation that allowed them to do what they did. Do some research on exactly who said what: it was some Republican campaign architects who twisted Gores words to make it sound like he claimed credit for inventing it.

Regulation of airwaves
Dec 30, 2011, 4:37 PM
in the Article: FCC Approves First White Space Device and Database forum

I always thought it was ridiculous how the government (i.e. FCC) can regulate airwaves. It's LIGHT. It's like regulating air: the government doesn't own it. It's basically a major limit on 1st amendment rights: they regulate the use of airwaves because we are allowed to communicate to the masses through them. Lame.

I recall reading recently that T-Mobile was actually profitable this last quarter. If I'm remembering that incorrectly, I am certain that things had definitely improved sales wise for them.

Another vote for WebOS!!!
Sep 14, 2011, 2:12 AM
in the Article: HTC: No Operating System Announcements Just Yet forum

I just bought a Veer and I love it! Many have complained about Palm and HP's software- it would be awesome to see WebOS on something solid, like an HTC phone! If anyone is going to try and devise a competing OS to iOS and Android, WebOS has the best shot. It's already awesome (i.e. has critical acclaim), has a fanbase, and the roots of an App market that it easy to develop for.

Re: It is about time

in the Article: HP Confirms Talks to License webOS forum

No one wants to trust WebOS because so few devices have it installed. No one wants to get stuck with the OS that has no support and disappears in a year. I loved Palm and really want to own a WebOS device, but I am not willing to get stuck with an app-less device for 2 years. Hopefully this will change. Besides, the newer Palm/WebOS hardware has sucked so far. Samsum or HTC might be able to build something nifty.

There has to be a round-about way to get this installed on other phones, right? My MyTouch 4G should be strong enough to run this.

I'm a bit confused?

in the Article: Google Empowers Browser-Based Maps for Android, iOS forum

Why is it so important that Google maps is supported in a browser? There's a Google Maps app available for iOS and Android. I'm not trying to be snide, I honestly don't know why someone would use their browser.

in the Article: HP Veer Landing On AT&T forum

It depends on where you live. Where I'm from, a holster would be nerdy. In other places, it could be a professional thing. At least the market I live in supports phones that fit in pockets easily. Also remember: women don't put phones in holsters, but they put them in pockets.

in the Article: HP Veer Landing On AT&T forum

Supposedly it won't work with Sprint 'cuz the CMDA radio or whatever is too big to fit inside. It had to be a GSM phone, which limits the carriers to AT&T or T-mobile. Seeing as how T-Mobile will BE AT&T in a year, it's a no-brainer. I'm sure the Pre 3 will be available for Sprint. Nice hefty camera, etc. It sounds more like your cup of tea.

I actually think WebOS is better than Android (with the exception of the small app market).

the newest crop of WebOS phone are supposed to be a lot more sturdier and more solidly built than the old Pres.

in the Article: Apple Addresses Location Concerns forum

:evil: So what is this: because of a "bug", Apple keeps the data they collect longer than they said they would? Bull crap! The bug fix their releasing is not to fix a bug, but their excuse (or attempt, depending on who's view) to back out of a law suit by updating their software.

in the Article: AT&T Files T-Mobile Acquisition Papers with the FCC forum

I thought Metro owned their own towers? Even if they don't, AT&T + Verizon can't force them out of business because the anti-trust lawyers will jump on that like flies on poop. Pre-paid carriers exist simply because there is a market for them. LOTS of people can't afford a regular cell plan, or don't have enough credit to get one. Any why will Sprint be forced to sell? I mean, the DoJ is on the AT&T sale: what makes you ...

Too late!

in the Article: White Apple iPhone 4 Hits Stores April 28 forum

I can't believe they seriously released this crap?! I bought a MyTouch back in November because I got tired of waiting for the damn White iPhone 4. I was one of the die-hards who was really looking forward to the color. If I couldn't wait, I doubt there is anyone who did. People who buys this are not the same people who waited for it since the announcement.

this is a gift for Sprint
Apr 25, 2011, 3:14 PM
in the Article: AT&T Files T-Mobile Acquisition Papers with the FCC forum

By eliminating T-Mobile, AT&T just made Sprint the only low-priced contract provider in the industry. I have T-Mobile because of the customer service and the low prices, and if I am not able to keep my pricing with the merger I will look for another low-priced vendor (i.e. NOT AT&T or Verizon). I see MetroPCS as the company that will move into T-Mobile's empty slot. Now that they are getting Android phones, their ridiculously low prices look very attractive. Am ...
