Re: Not being reversible is a feature not a bug
Tuesday, 9:05 PM
in the Article: New Universal USB Connector Revealed forum

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.

Tricorder

We need a device like a Tricorder, that can monitor a persons full biometric readings from one single device. If BB released a tricorder, I'd buy it.

New challenge for hackers

I estimate when the first phone is released with this software, some hacker somewhere in the world will have it cracked within... lets say, 2 days.

in the Article: New Universal USB Connector Revealed forum

I don't think they are getting rid of that just to copy apple. Everything is moving towards being streamlined, and easy to use. Even things that seemed a luxury before are now too tough for some whiners to use because they have to reverse a plug, its pretty ridiculous. However, I think this is the way all technology is moving - simplistic design, ease of use. This is just the next evolution, I ...

what kid is going to want to carry this ?

in the Article: Sprint Announces WeGo Phone for Kids forum

Unless you are a parent with no balls, last time I checked, you tell your kid what to do, not the other way around. When I was that age, cell phones did not exist, however myself and my entire generation seemed to do just fine. My kid would be LUCKY to have that kind of phone, or any phone for that matter. If you are buying $500 devices for your little kids, as a parent, your ...

Simple choice starter plan is capped at 500MB, there is no throttle. Data service stops when you hit 500MB.

in the Article: Kyocera Delivers A Good Old Fashioned Slider to Sprint forum

Remember the LG Rumor, that came out.. hmmm.. must be just over 5 years ago ? Looks pretty similar to this phone, and with the changes, it still appears to be pretty old tech in this device. For $125 too? I don't think so.

This is a copy / paste from John Legere's twitter feed (He's the CEO of T-mobile) Hey @Sprint- Paying off ETFs 2 get people 2 switch is a great idea (I should know) but for just a couple wks? That’s #FruckedUp #Cheapskates

Not just that, in standard definition, Verizon's small-print is completly unreadable, it appears as white line streaks on my hdtv, it barelly resembles words. In HD, you can read it, but not in SD, and not everybody pays for those channels. They are as deceptive as possible. If they can get away with doing it, they will, no matter what. That is not the sign of a good company.

It's also to reduce the huge tonnes and tonnes of garbage waste that is created by these charges. New phone used to me new charger and charger wire, not anymore. You can keep your old charges, and not throw them away. This is a huge win for the environment as well, as most chargers contain toxic chemicals.

Re: No PCS LTE Devices

in the Article: T-Mobile To Repurpose EDGE Network for LTE Expansion forum

The iPhone actuially has a surprisingly high rating. Heat can be applied to either side of it, and the glass comes off the front and the back of the older iPhone 4 devices. Once the glass is off, the inner LCD can be very easily removed, and it gives you access to all the guts of the phone, including the battery. On the HTC One, the battery is packed into the rear of the phone, with ...

By who, companies looking to make a profit, magazines looking for profit, and reviewers who work for those companies who are paid for their oppinions? I have a very good friend who had an HTC One. Had, as in, doesn't have it anymore. Inside 4 months the battery went bad as determined by the carrier. Since accessories / the battery only carries a 90 day warranty, it was deemed to be out of warranty. On a scale ...

That's a good question, I'm not sure if they had separate FCC approvals. I haven't heard much about that phone since it's really not a great device. I'll check that out and let you know.

Re: No PCS LTE Devices
Mar 14, 2014, 1:31 PM
in the Article: T-Mobile To Repurpose EDGE Network for LTE Expansion forum

None. They don't have the hardware to support that frequency band. Even if they don't support it on the specific carrier, they needed to be approved by the FCC with support for LTE 1900, and none of them were.

Re: Good for T-mo

They are depicting only the 4G LTE Networks. I work for T-Mobile, and I have access to their internal Network coverage map that customers can not see. I've see the commercial . Believe you me, the actual network footprint of T-Mobile is at least 10 times bigger than the commercial leads on. I paused my tv and viewed the coverage map - it's a giant lie. Also, the coverage they showed depicting AT&T and Sprint were also ...

WiFi data?
Mar 14, 2014, 11:05 AM
in the Article: Sprint Rebrands Its Prepaid Service forum

So when you say WiFi data, I just want to clarify, you mean NO data, correct? Since wifi has to be provided by a separate source, or you pay for it yourself and use a wireless router, it is not provided by the carrier. Not too sure why you didn't just say no data is included, becuase it isn't. It's deceptive to say that only Wi-Fi data is provided, that comes off as saying that the carrier has ...

I can't get behind this guy

in the Article: SoftBank CEO Critical of U.S. Wireless Market forum

I just can't get behind Son. His blind optimism seems to border on arrogance. We are the alternative, we are the right choice! Just give us a chance..... please? He just seems disingenuine to me, like a door-to-door sales man that promises you the world and then doesn't deliver. His poor grammar doesn't help, either. it really doesn't. I can't specifically put my finger on it, but I just don't like him.

I hear complaints about Verizon's service also, almost every day. Every carrier has bad spots, it just matters who you talk to. I hear backwards stories too, like people telling me T-Mobile works great in their house but Verizon doesn't.

Re: Apple Remote:
Mar 11, 2014, 11:16 AM
in the Article: Apple Remote App Updated with More Tools forum

Apple is xenophobic to other technological standards. They act as if their tech is all that exists, and that everything else is trash. If they don't put it in one of their devices, it's like that piece of tech doesn't matter at all (NFC). I can understand why they only make something that controls their product - you don't see Sony releasing remote controls that can only work with Samsung tvs. However, they would make more money and cater ...

Definately. If we can criticize something, most people will. But I mean honestly - it's cool that its free and all that, but what does This Music application have to do with lactation? Or Milk? -- I can't answer that as I have not yet used the app, but look at the names of other apps. Songza, Music Unlimited, Slacker Radio, I mean, these names make total sense. If I'm ever going to use Milk, I ...

in the Article: Apple Loses Bid to Ban Samsung Phones forum

I totally agree with you. 930 Mil seems like it would be pocket change to Apple, and their patents are garbage. The system is broken, and they knew it. I'm seriously considering selling my apple devices, I have a few.... their douchbaggery seems to have no end.

Re: Milk?
Mar 7, 2014, 1:06 PM
in the Article: Samsung Intros Milk Music Service for Galaxy Devices forum

I mean, 4 or 5 letter words should be fine, but it matters what word you chose. Milk is a pretty stupid name for a music app, unless it was M.I.L.K where each letter stood for something, I can understand that, but naming a music / radio station streaming app Milk? It makes no sence, plus, nobody who is lactose intollerant would ever download this app, so they are possibly missing out on business.

"The Enemy of my Enemy is my friend" I may be wrong, but the person that coined that phrase... wern't they murdered by one of their best friends ? I'm pretty sure he was. Terrible saying.

Insane pricepoint for the plan

So you buy a Sub-$200.00 phone, get free service for 3 months, and then you get UNL T+T+500MB for only $10.00 per month? Is FreedomPop one of those mixed Cell/Wifi providers or something, becuase that is an insane deal. I can't access their site from my current location, anybody know ?

Same thing with audio wires for home theatre speakers - doesn't matter what kind you get.

Very true - my ex brother-in-law was an American living near Allentown in PA, he applied for a work permit / visa to be a truck driver, and he was accepted immediately, they even told him he could start working and making money in Canada before the paperwork came back. So yeah, we need workers.

Based on how poorly they've done, who are you to say that I couldn't do a better job? Nobody, thats who. Clearly they don't know too much about it, as they have just done an awesome job managing their finances.

Feb 28, 2014, 1:02 PM
in the Article: Sprint Loses Attempt to Skirt $300M Tax Lawsuit forum

That a company who could barelly manage their network would also be able to apparently barelly manage their own business. I thought it was funny that it says that sprint was "Dissapointed". I'd be pretty dissapointed too if somebody tried to sue me for almost 400 million dollars. Hopefully the state takes every single penny from them.
