I like thats that barelly work, sometimes break, and come through really, really slow. Thats why Sprint is my service provider!

Re: selfie camera

in the Article: T-Mobile and MetroPCS Score Waterproof Kyocera Hydro Life forum

You beat me to it! That was going to be my EXACT post too. Calling the camera a "selfie camera" I agree is really stupid, just like the term "Phablet", and several other terms used to describe smartphones. Just like the term hashtag is ridiculous as well. My "device" has a "Front facing camera" not a "selfie camera" does that mean I can't take a selfie? Of course not. However, I have never, ever, taken a ...

I was wrong - every single phone I looked at was Band 17, not 12. Sorry if I got your hopes up. This does surprise me, however.

Minimum number of lines: 4 Maximum number of lines: 5 It will not be available to a 2-line account, unfortunately. ...I have just confirmed. It is NOT available for 1 - 3 lines. Absolute minimum is 4.

Just wait for them to deploy the 700Mhz spectrum they purchased from Verizon, and hopefully they will bid on / win some 600Mhz spectrum as well. Many phones that are being released already support LTE 700 for that spectrum as well.

"Fullest portfolio"

in the Article: Samsung Delays Tizen Phone Yet Again forum

"The smartphone will appear on the Russian market later, when we can offer our users a fullest portfolio of applications." so this phone will never be released? I mean, that's what it is sounding like.

I'm also waiting on the next Rambo movie to come out. I do believe it's going to be called First Blood Part III Rambo IV. I may be wrong, though.

in the Article: GoTenna Links Phones When Network Disappears forum

I completely agree 100%, however a walkie talkie can't send text messages. I realize that you can easily press a button and speak your message into it, but people are obsessed with their phones these days. I love walkie talkies, a family member of mine has a huge collection of very very powerfull ones, he even has one that routes through an 8 foot antenna on his car that is so powerful we can pick up broadcasts in Australia ...

100% Agreed. People rarely even speak about the blackberry anymore. Most people consider it to be a pure business phone and wont even consider it. Although, the newer ones are decent devices, and where I live here you can get a brand new Z10 for less than $100.00 with a contract, a huge contrast of $600.00 when it was originally released.

Refresh rate in megahertz

in the Article: MediaTek Takes on Snapdragon 810 with New 64-bit Chip forum

120 Mhz refresh rate? I think this must be a mistake, as this would be the fastest refreshing screen in the universe. Did you mean to say 120 Hz, not Mhz ?

in the Article: Sprint to Sell ZTE's Hotspot Projector forum

I was thinking the same thing, about the dim lamp, that's why I asked if you can plug it in. Most projectors that I've seen use hundreds upon hundreds of watts of power, something that a small battery can't hope to match. It does seem pretty damn awesome, but that dim lamp is a huge negative.

Incorrect, sir, the price will not be cut.

in the Article: T-Mobile Offering $100 Off iPhone/iPad Purchases forum

The price will not be cut by $100.00. You will still pay full price. The promotion is you will be mailed a $100.00 prepaid credit card.

5000mAh battery
Jul 9, 2014, 1:10 PM
in the Article: Sprint to Sell ZTE's Hotspot Projector forum

You had stated that other devices can charge off of this device's battery, but this is a projector. Can this run off the battery, are you required to plug it into a 120 volt outlet, or can it be a combination of both ?

Music Unlimited

Awesome music streaming app, probably one of the best ones that has a cost to it. I've used it for years, has all the songs I need, and you can stream it to your phone / PS3 at super high bitrates also.

So by saying that it supports "Chinese" are we to assume it supports both Mandarin, and Cantonese?

If you hand your $600+ phone, with all of your stored contact and password information to a child, and allow them full access to the device, you deserve what you get. Stupidity is a huge factor here; what were you expecting, your kid not to buy 60 episodes of Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers? The onus should totally be on the responsible, legal adult to educate their own children to not be dumbasses, to respect their property, and ...

Jul 1, 2014, 5:28 PM
in the Article: FTC Drops Cram-Hammer On T-Mobile forum

As a T-Mobile representative, I take these allegations seriously. On a T-Mobile bill, after the details about calls placed / received, and if you have detailed billing turned on, the details about all text messages sent / received, on the very next page, before you move onto the next line, are the listed premium service charges. I can't for the life of me figure out how this could be construed as lengthy or difficult to understand. They were printed ...

Re: No LTE but yet I get HD Voice
Jun 20, 2014, 11:27 AM
in the Article: T-Mobile Talks VoLTE and HD Voice forum

HD voice was introduced before T-Mobile had an LTE network, back when they were finished rolling out the 21Mbps/42Mbps HSPA+ network, it was available back then on specific devices. As long as both phones support HD voice, you'll get it on HSPA+ and LTE.

You're right, but in Canada they are probably the best carrier you can get. Up here, the run off both Rogers + Bells network, and they have CDMA, GSM, WCDMA and LTE coverage in the same areas on the same carriers. Plus for Virgin Mobile Canada, through their online web management site, you can update your SIM number, or add a new IMSI (I think thats what its called for a CDMA phone) to use literally any ...

It WONT save you gas
Jun 6, 2014, 5:15 PM
in the Article: Automatic Labs' In-car Accessory Will Silence Notifications forum

It WILL tell you how to alter your driving habits to save gas, but the device, by itself, will NOT save your car gas. It'll give you reports on how you drive, and *suggest* that you go light on the gas pedal and light on the brake. Thats pretty much all.

The nuclear reactors on board the Voyager space probes that were launched in the 19070s are still functional. It's possible, but I doubt that this phone uses a nuclear reactor to power itself.

Becuase those selifies that James Franco is constantly taking need to be that much clearer, right? I also don't understand the user-facing camera having a wide angle lense. Last time I checked, my head was not so wide that it wouldn't fit into a picture.

I think your complaint is totally Valid, Johnhr2, but I don't think it's realistic. ISPs can provide throughput at huge speeds, over 100 Gbps, at least where I am, and probably hugely more than that. Every single person in the area would need to be constantly streaming those sites for you to even notice any kind of slow down what so ever. And even then, you probably still wouldn't notice, it would need to be a very extreme ...

Battery life specs
Apr 20, 2014, 11:08 AM
in the Samsung Galaxy S5 (GSM) forum

Where do you guys get your battery life specs from? I'm looking at the Galaxy S 5 GSM model here, it says Talk: 21 hours max. (1260 minutes) , Standby: 390 hours max. (16.3 days) Looking at T-Mobile's website, http://support.t-mobile.com/commu nity/phones-tablets-devices/android/samsung-g alaxy-s-5 It says Talk is 29 hours, and standby only 280. Why do you think there would be such a large discrepancy there ? Just curious.

Complication is life. Life is complicated, thats just how it is. Simple and easy is not always good. You see - if I had the choice between driving around in a big, smooth, expensive automatic car all day, or a dirty, loud, hard-to-handle sports car? I would take the more difficult option. Same with phones too, as the iPhone would be the easy automatic aproach, which I would avoid. How about the rest of every day ...

Isn't that what cases / covers are for? So you can change the look and style of your phone whenever you want? Black & White are all you need.
