They did this to me in 2009 when i was on vacation using data via their AT&T Navigator. Resulted in a $900 phone bill. I paid it and discontinued my service the same day.

Hey Rich, hope you've been well. So isn't this just really a voice codec change/channel allotment difference? Maybe the equivalent of GSM's EFR codec?

Petrocom used to make money hand over fist, charging up to $5/min. roaming over their TDMA-overlaid-to-GSM network.

"major effort to improve the quality of its network" = changing the voice codec from AMR to Half Rate. Less compression = better sounding voice. But that's not an upgrade. Just conjecture.

in the Article: FCC Reverses Home Roaming Rules forum

To me, roaming is not the cash cow it once was. In my opinion, there is still encouragement to build a network because it seems to me that carriers make more money off the regular monthly postpaid customers than they do off an occasional roamer. Obviously if most of your minutes are spent roaming the home carrier has the right to shut your service off.

Seems to be Quad Band + Tri Band WCDMA
Dec 12, 2009, 12:08 AM
in the Nokia E73 Mode / E72 forum

The Nokia USA website seems to indicate the phone is Quad-band GSM/EGSM 850/900/1800/1900 + WCDMA 850/1900/2100 OR WCDMA 900/1900/2100. http://www.nokiausa.com/find-products/pho nes/nokia-e72/specifications That would make the specs on the Info page incorrect. But what do I know? Nokia not having great days here lately. You should see all the complaints about the E72 in Nokia's forum... http://discussions.nokiausa.com/d iscussions/board?board.id=communicators

Looks like the E72 has 5 MP camera and the 4 special buttons (mail, calendar, etc.) on the front are a little different. If anyone gets this phone please let us know if Symbian S60 3rd edition Feature Pack 2 comes with threaded messaging.

They look the same to me. E71 is nice phone but no threaded SMS - ugh! Hopefully it's on the E72.

Your analogies are way off. Jamming cell phone signals in prisons is not tantamount to x-raying people boarding flights or using DNA in crime situations. It's not even close. Tip from an older guy - analogies rarely make a valid point. It's very difficult to compare apples to mangoes.

Hey - thanks for your help. You got me in the right direction. I think the Private Interface for Internet Sharing is just a name, like you name your access point at home. But at least you got me pointed. I searched on XDA before i posted here but maybe I'm searching in the wrong forums. Anyway, thanks again.

A reviewer said about this phone: "Any way I like the ability to broadcast a WiFi signal using the carriers network." How is that possible? Is this a special function of the Fuze or can any WinMo phone do this?

Jeez this guy is a nut! Okay so he's all for getting rid of smut and free speech.

Now he sells his morals (whatever morals they are) right out the window to get this grandiose idea of free wireless Internet approved by his counterparts. And why do we need free ...

No disrespect to the website reporters, but who cares anymore about this over hyped model? HTC debuted this type of slide-out phone a while ago, and even they have moved on for the most part. The novelty is long gone.

... Privus Caller ID info is dependent on your WAP/3G connection. If it's on when you get the phone call, and it's pretty darn quick, you will get caller ID info. The service pulls identifying info from a DB somewhere on the Net. If your WAP/3G is off, or if it is indeed slow WAP (instead of faster data like HSDPA or EVDO) then you may not get the caller ID info before you answer or it goes to ...

... in this case, AT&T. I can understand the reasons why it would be bad to use P2P or stream on *any* network. What network admin wants to hear complaints all the time due to lack of bandwidth? But to spend billions of dollars on a 3G (and 4G to come) buildout so that users can access the internet in an "intermittent and bursty" manner? Ridiculous. This is "CYA" for AT&T for when the lawsuits start - as the ...

in the Article: AT&T Announces iPhone Specifics forum

Unbelievable. What's the reasoning behind this? Certainly AT&T will make their money off the month-to-monthers, but their refusal to unlock the full price phone is arrogant. Hopefully you'll be able to call CS and get it unlocked as you can do now with other phones (but I'd bet not).
