in the Article: Nokia Shareholders Approve Microsoft Buyout forum

Nokia makes amazing phones. WP8 is still growing, but is farther behind than Android. I don't know very many people who would not embrace a Nokia Android phone, in fact, it's on the top of the "what if" wishlists of almost every Android fan out there. That said, WP8 would not be where it is today w/o HTC and Nokia's backing, where as HTC dropped from the scene mostly, Nokia took up the torch and ran with it past everyone else, ...

I Hope not. Most of us PC Modders and builders stopped putting ASUS motherboards in our computers around 4-5 years ago when they started putting out crappier and crappier units. Northbridge failures abound. EVGA and Gigabyte boards rule the extreme pc land now.

I'm speaking striclty of SDC, not Verizon PTT, or ATT PTT or SouthernLYNC or anyone else. I use a DuraMax for SDC everyday to connect to others for inventory and parts, and have had no coverage issues and no app is used.

SDC is not an app, mr AT&T employee, how very uniformed you are. SDC is used via DC button just like older Nextel handsets, except over LTE, EVDO, and 1x via a different service than Qchat. Call it Enhanced Qchat or Qchat 2.0 or whatever you want, but Qchat is not what is being used. The Torque is currently using EVDO and 1x, but will get a MR to work on LTE for SDC pretty shortly. There is like ...

SDC works exactly like NDC, except diff network, and it sounds the same as well, Beep Beep not going away.

in the Article: Samsung Outs Freeform 5 for U.S. Cellular forum

I said it was a rehashed form factor, in fact, this same hardware (meaning the outer housings) has been used before on older Devices going back to Palm. Google Image the HTC Snap and learn what I'm talking about. This has nothing to do what is running on it, as I'm stricly speaking of the Housing/Hardware. I'm a technician, i've seen and opened 1000's of these exact looking models, going back to Windows 5 and Palm OS running on them.

Wow somewhere there's a warehouse full of this hardware...

...and it gets flashed by each vendor out there. I've seen this made by Palm, HTC, and pretty sure LG if not Samsung has used this once before. It ran Windows 5 back in the day, and i'm sure there was a 6.1 version at some point too, from one of these guys. heh Funny to see this thing pop up again with yet another vendors name on it. Such a small niche form factor, yet keeps getting rehashed ...

Wow you have zero clue and zero input here, leave it to a PhonePoop member NOT to understand wireless, as usual, nor to actually bother reading what the "junkie airwaves" from Clear were actually going to be used for once refarmed for LTE. Do us all a favor and get a bit more informed about Sprint and it's Network Vision plans before spouting your FUD.

This isn't any kind of Sprint mess, not sure what article you just read but apparantly you foamed at the mouth just because Sprint was in the title and didn't actually read it. Phonepoopers at their best as always.

in the Article: Dish Seeks to Halt FCC Review of Sprint-Softbank Deal forum

Incorrect, this is a problem Dish Network feels it has with Sprint over who owns Clear, has nothing to do with Sprint's merger with SB. Sprint has a clear plan to get backed by this large Japanese company, that's no more risky than Verizon Wireless having a large backing by vodaphone or T-Mobile USA being backed by T-Mobile UK. If you are going to make a generalized bashing of a company, just because you think its still fun to ...

There's a reason for that, trust me. I won't go into details as it is proprietary systems that I don't share info about as a Sprint Tech, but I literally have systems that guage how long since last long in and alert me via corporate email to log in and validate before access is restricted. It's just good security.

Laugh all you want but continueing to act as if Sprint doesn't have a growing LTE network much like AT&T and Verizon did starting out you are delusional. So what if it wasn't immediately lit up in 100+ markets yet, do you honestly beleive it wont get there eventually just like the others? I am in the Houston LTE market. It's been fleshed out really well and I regularly test phones on the network all the time. Currently on ...

in the Article: Samsung Loses Apple Patent Case forum

Incorrect, Batteries go bad before devices in most cases, as a customer can use a good phone 2+ years (specially those who are on 2 year contracts) and batteries have a possible 1 to 1 1/2 yr usage built in with between 450-650 cycles. A cycle = 1 charge no matter the time, 2 mins or 2 hours. 365 days a year + plugging in your phone a minimal of 2 times a day = 730 cycles, way way ...

in the Article: Sprint Says It Will Light Up 800MHz with LTE in 2014 forum

And they do, it's just tied up in things like legacy networks (Iden). Once they convert customers off those spectrums they are free to reuse them for LTE. And for the record, with no one on the network, it would be hard to gauge what the final speeds will be. I can say test speeds are 40 Mbps down when only 1 guy is testing the LTE equipment, but that is certainly not real world, add to the fact Verizon's ...

Inccorect, there is an LTE network, I'm looking at a tower with LTE equipment already loaded on it towards the Southwest of my Tech office, so to say "they ain't got no damn nework lmao" just shows you how much misinformation you have read. The markets that are listed as launch markets have already in fact been turning the service on/off in test modes, so that shortly after, or as the Viper, and then the Galaxy Nexus get sold in ...

Not too mention, we are saving a crap ton of money (in the billions) for shuttering the Nextel network. It's going to make up a big money difference as it gets repurposed for CDMA/LTE. That's money in my companies pocket. Don't have to run an outdated nextel site, and they put up the new Sprint Network Vision Ericsson Modular Base stations which run way more efficient. That adds value, plus, puts the good spectrum into use on 850 for ...

To add, hate to say it, but we've been in a hiring mode ever since October and a certain "other phone" we did not have access to previously became available. Over that period 2 of our reps were promoted, moved to new stores, and 2 new positions were needed on top of those, so to add, we needed 4 people to fill positions. We've added 2, just need 2 more. So again, Sprint is in a Big Time Hiring mode ...

No Sprint already did it awhile back, we now need people. Our stores have hirings in them all over. We cut all hosting positions and they decided to close a bunch of Direct Service Centers, now they are hiring reps like crazy and trying to hire back Techs from the old Direct Service Centers. Things are growing and we are trying to fill positions as fast as we can. Brand new store just opened up near ours, took our Lead ...

Yep, it's funny, I was onhand the day as a left over PrimeCo emplyee who made the transition to TDMA in Houston (from PrimeCo's CDMA) for the AT&T buyout, to also be onhand the day GSM/GPRS launched in Houston. We sold a $99 unlimited all(Voice+Data) plan to intice customers to switch. Can't wait to be onhand when Houston's Sprint Network flips the switch on LTE, as we were one of the middle of the national deployment for Wimax with Clear. AS ...

In fact headline on iconnect is: Another Sprint Direct Connect phone, the Kyocera DuraPlus, is coming in 1Q, linked to the article by Joe, and then 2 Sprint Direct Connect blogs by myself and Joe. I know you are busy like I am but dang, lol, it was all over the place due to the excessive water resistance the product boasts.

Sprint's Trade in Program is a little different, it's direct money off the phone and accessories. So if you are getting a $200 phone, the phone you bring in (from any carrier), whatever the value may be, come straight off the price of the phone and accessories you are buying. I've seen people getting iPhone4S's walk out paying $25 with a case, car charger, screen protector, that's total after trade in. A very nice incentive. Again, any carrier trade in ...

Contrary to what you guys want to think, the truth about Sprint couldn't be further from the delusions written here. PhonePoop (because please, there's really no scoop here, only poop on this site) harbors too many uninformed mud slingers. Sure, there are a couple of people like me, who actually work for a real carrier (and have for 16 yrs), and then there are the 5-10 who fake working for a carrier around here too, mostly to enjoy spreading false crap ...
