Re: T-Mobile's LTE spreading like a cancer...
what's a "jap"?
How does one join this class action?
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?
A match made in heaven
Linksquared interferes with GPS, and AT&T interferes with productivity.
Re: NTP - a "patent-holding" company without a website...
by the way - the patents *do* expire in 2012. Good. http://www.marketwatch.com/story/ntp-face s-uphill-battle-against-rich-foes-2010-07-09
Petrocom used to make a fortune off this
Petrocom used to make money hand over fist, charging up to $5/min. roaming over their TDMA-overlaid-to-GSM network.
Read between the lines
"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.
"whatever assets remain at Zer01"?
:lol: :lol: :lol:
Re: is this good or bad?
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
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
Re: Differences between E71 and E72?
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.
Differences between E71 and E72?
They look the same to me. E71 is nice phone but no threaded SMS - ugh! Hopefully it's on the E72.
This has been the law in Alaska for some time now ...
... and absolutely no one seems to pay attention to it. At every stop light most people are looking down into their laps. I assume they're not asleep...

Re: Get a new hand model
Re: It's funny that ...
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.
It's funny that ...
... the prisons can't do their job and control what comes in and out of the jails, so (potentially) others (those who live near a prison) will have lousy, or no, cell service. Way to go, prisons! :roll:
Three email clients?
Yikes. I'm confused already! 8O
"Highly efficient VoIP technology"?
Most of it still sounds like poop to me. Also adds another reason for things to go wrong when I press "send". I'll pass.
Windows Mobile till I dieeeeeeeeeeee.... :)
didn't work for me
went to att.net and it just opened up My Yahoo portal page. No mention of how to sign up for an att.net email account. Oh well I guess I wil have to live without this most wonderful feature!! :roll:
Re: broadcast a WiFi signal from your phone
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.
broadcast a WiFi signal from your phone
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?
You thought ringtones were big
Camera Shutter Tones. Stop it everybody this is MY IDEA!!! I'm going to that patent website right now. www.camerashuttertones.com is ALL MINE!!! BWAHAHAHAHAHA
an 1100mAh battery...
...is not really what people are clamoring for. Wonder if it will make it through a day on one charge?
what's taking AT&T so long...
... to start selling a branded GSM version? I've used the unbranded one from Palm for some time now and it works quite well on the network.
Jeez this guy is a nut! Okay so he's all for getting rid of smut and free speech. This was apparent in how he let Sirius and XM's merger rot and now this new company will never make a dime (because the hype behind satellite radio faded). 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 ...
Are you sure you still have the unlimited plan? Last month they changed mine automatically to the new limited 5GB plan.
Who cares anymore?
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.
Can someone explain the panels?
I've seen the SE Xperia previews, but I still don't understand the "panels". Can someone break it down a little? What purpose do they have?
Re: Is this gonna be sold UNLOCKED ONLY on Palm?
Agreed. I have missed my Treo 750 from the very day I put it on eBay.
Good news but...
... don't you think they are really screwing the pooch on this one? By the time it comes out HTC will have a new phone out and the new GSM Treo will be out and so will the Crackberry Bold ... they simply are taking too long. It's just like the decision to sell the SE 750a - a great candidate for an unlocked unbranded phone due to it's Global Roaming capabilities - only through AT&T. They are missing ...
What they DON'T make obvious is ...
... 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 ...
Re: Looks like they took a page out of at&t's book.....
Well they are leasing caller ID information from somewhere. Your monthly fees will help pay for that data. Or make them rich. Or something.
More baloney by the cell companies...
... 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 ...
$599/$699 and LOCKED?
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).
