You say it only includes essential functions, yet it has Facebook built in. Last time I checked, social network was not essential.
FM Radio uses zero data. Absolute zero. It listens to frequency modulation signals, it doesn't go through cellular, wifi, or any other kind of data connection. My phone has an FM radio in it, and it works with all cellular/wifi/Bluetooth radios turned off and in airplane mode. It also works with the SIM card removed from the phone. Not only does it use less data, it uses none.
It says right in the article that they support all network frequency bands of AT&T and T-Mobile.
"The app is designed for situations where audio might be inappropriate for one or both parties..." Yeah, as a mute button would just be WAY out of the question!
There's a Chinese phone out there that has 4GB of RAM?
Re: since when is the BlackBerry Classic mid-range?
The classic is definitely mid-range. The older Z30 is substantially better in all spec categories, including processor, and the Passport is an absolute powerhouse. The Z10 is almost a better phone than the classic, if you aren't too upset about a slightly lower resolution screen. I was hoping for more out of the Classic, it has old internals.
You're most likely correct, no currently released iPhone would ever support this.
The Device has to support RCS for this system to work. From what I understand, there are no plans to include any iPhones, at all. iMessages already closely resembles Advanced Messaging.
Re: It;s Not Free
It is $10.00 per line if you have single line plans and are a legacy customer. If you do not want to change your plan due to grandfathers plans / features, T-Mobile will still give you the benefit of Simple Choice North America with a $10.00 add-on to single lines, or $10.00 at the account level for accounts with up to 10 lines on a pooling plan. The new plans that are being released on the 15th have ...
Re: How can they do this?
Absolutely right. I don't know about Mexico, but certainly in Canada they had to pay Rogers a substantial amount of money. Rogers is like the Verizon of Canada, they have the best service in most areas, and they don't care if you think they have high prices. Rogers is T-Mobile's LTE roaming partner in Canada, and the most expensive carrier in Canada by far. I can only imagine how much T-Mobile paid them to forge ...
That sounds like an excuse to me. My girlfriend has a Cat 4 LTE device and can pull 100+ Mbps here in Canada on an MVNO (Virgin Mobile). In the middle of nowhere, in a Hamlet (A town too small to be a town) called Jasper, in the middle of nowheresville, Ontario, I can pull 20 Mbps on Virgin's HSPA+ network.
I live in Canada, and use Virgin Mobile up here, an MVNO of Bell Mobility. My device is LTE Cat 3, and I pull 65 Mbps inside my house. My girlfriend has an LTE Cat 4 device, and she has gotten nearly 100 Mbps at times. My father, who lives near Naperville (A suburb of Chicago) can't get the internet service he wants because his neighborhood isn't "wired" for it, so he is stuck with slow access. A ...
Re: $70 dollar Unlimited plan (Grandfathered)
They actually did. Every single customer that had an Unlimited data feature that had a specific amount of data to be used for Mobile Hotspot had that Hotspot allotment increased by 2GB. The old $20.00 UNL+3GB SMHS is now $20.00 UNL+5GB SMHS.
Re: Google Clock
What features does this Google Clock offer that your previous clock did not ?
This IS big brother
Why even life your life for yourself at all when Siri is like a digital life coach? This sounds way too intrusive to me, can people not even decide for themselves where they are going to drive? The dependence on devices like this is ludicrous. Society would collapse if the GPS or Cellular network ever stopped working for any length of time. I have a paper map in my car and it has NEVER let ...
Re: Why Not?
I didn't even realize Geocities was still a thing, I remember that site back from the 1990s, didn't know it was still alive. I agree with you, however. There is such a thing as too big.
Re: And T-Mobile Will Offer...
Virgin Mobile operates a CDMA network in Canada. From their online management portal, you can change your ESN / IMEI to ANY CDMA device that supports their network. It has nothing to do with the technology, it has everything to do with the carrier.
Re: Having to stop selling because of user error?
You're right, it is very dangerous. Have you ever seen what happens to a cell phone battery when it is pierced by a piece of metal? Not a pretty sight.
Which would be why you go for the Jump! or Score feature, so you can either do a trade in later, or get a discounted new phone.
Re: Would that also include Z3 Compacts?
No - the Z3 compact is not a T-Mobile phone, and does not support Band 12. All of the previously stated devices that are getting the update already supported Band 12. I'm not sure exactly why this update is necessary, to be honest.
Sprint hates Canada
However apparently loves Guatemala and El Salvador. Do these country selections make sense to anybody ?
So, the camera facing the user is a "Selfie" camera, but the light is a user facing light? So which is it, is it a User-Facing camera, a Selfie Camera, a User-Facing light, or a Selfie light? The term Selfie Camera is really stupid.
So they are just skipping over the number 9 like it doesn't exist? Unacceptable. I bet they're just upset that the gypsy who has a pad at 34th and Vine wouldn't sell them a bottle of love potion number 9. :roll: Yeah, that's the reason!
It has to be 700Mhz A-block, they only just started releasing devices that support LTE Band 12, if it is another band, it makes no sense, I'm going to have to assume it's Band 12 (a-block)
The phone bends in your pocket
It's a $1000.00 piece of tin foil, and that's all it'll ever be. I will never, ever consider another apple product after they don't even know how to properly make a phone. A phone that bends from regularly having it in a front pocket? This is a joke!
"Personal Cellspot" is just another name for "Generic WiFi router" which is all it is. If you already have a wifi router, yo don't need this. This is pretty much just for people who don't have them, and live outside the service area.
Re: Okey But No 700MHZ A Block???
The Galaxy Avant and the upcoming Xperia Z3 support Band 12 - just you wait, when band 12 is launched and good to go, suddenly all the haters will have great coverage indoors, and then at&t + verizon will have nothing on their stupid high prices.
Friendcaller lets you link your own phone number to their caller ID using a text message as verification. I would highly recommend it.
Need to work on other things
Like deploying Band 12 spectrum and releasing more devices that support it, so the days of bad signal can be over.
I like thats that barelly work, sometimes break, and come through really, really slow. Thats why Sprint is my service provider!
Re: selfie camera
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 ...
Re: The days of bad T-mo coverage are numbered
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.
The days of bad T-mo coverage are numbered
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.
"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.
Re: Product naming conventions
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.
You won't get away with this, MCP! :x
Re: Ciao please
Voiceprint recognition is a terrible idea. Remember when Data pretended to be Picard and took over the Enterprise ? Terrible idea!
Re: walkie talkie
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 ...
Re: No one is really excited about the Amazon deal
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.
