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.
Awesome, thanks Rich. I'll make sure to use that link from now on if I spot anything.
Refresh rate in megahertz
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 ?
Re: 5000mAh battery
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.
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.
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 ?
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.
Re: Chinese as a "Language"
Hong Kong dialect is Cantonese. Thank you :)
Chinese as a "Language"
So by saying that it supports "Chinese" are we to assume it supports both Mandarin, and Cantonese?
Cause: STUPID parents
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 ...
Re: ..lengthy and difficult-to-understand monthly bills..
Wow! That's the best impression of a T-Mobile customer I've ever seen. Do you work for them ? 8)
..lengthy and difficult-to-understand monthly bills..
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: America's Newest Network = last to the party
Yeah, they sure are. Just now talking about HD voice and international wifi callings? Those services have been available on other carriers for quite some time now.
You didn't purposefully misspell September becuase this is a BB article, did you ?
Re: No LTE but yet I get HD Voice
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.
Re: You missed it
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 ...
Re: You missed it
Haha, you're right! I did miss it. I was also a little bit confused, Virgin's plans here in Canada are totally different than their American plans.
You missed it
The article does say that the plan includes 250MB of data...... :P
It WONT save you gas
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.
Re: Standby Time?
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.
