Re: Galaxy S4 Active did not pass water test
Jul 22, 2013, 4:17 PM
in the Samsung Galaxy S 4 Active forum

AT&T will be cursed by their customers who believed in the false advertising.. The lack of waterproofing in the Galaxy S4 is just the latest in AT&T's extensive history of false advertising going way back to the late 90's. Probably why the SUPERIOR Verizon Wireless hadn't picked it up as Verizon probably tested it and found it to be not so water resistant. The 'Nations Largest 4G Network'? BULLS**T! Verizon beat them to the punch by well over ...

Keep playing Catch Up Baseball to Verizon. You've still got a LONNNNGG way to go. And be sure to keep up those lies in your ads claiming you have the nation's largest 4G network. There's obviously a plentiful supply of ignorant consumers out there who buy your BS. Another reason Consumer Reports rates AT&T grossly inferior to Verizon....in ALL ASPECTS; coverage, call quality, customer service, etc.

Verizon beat them to it by at least 2 years ! The lies in AT&T's TV ads claiming they have the nation's largest LTE network make me want to throw something at the TV every time they air them. This company's history of lying in their ads goes back well over a decade when I got suckered in to their Digital One Rate back in '97.

What's also sad are the lies in AT&T's TV ads claiming they have the nation's largest LTE network. This company's history of lying in their ads goes back well over a decade when I got suckered in to their Digital One Rate back in '97. Verizon has literally buried them ever since IN EVERY WAY except for AT&T's getting the iPhone first. Does one need to wonder why AT&T is the lowest rated wireless carrier of the ...

$149 on an upgrade. http://wireless.amazon.com/Samsun g-Galaxy-Android-Verizon-Wireless/dp/B008HTJL F6/ref=cr_page_bread_crumb Having got one at a local VZW store last week and having my account charged the $199 Verizon's getting, I called customer service last night and sure enough, VERIZON matched it with a service credit. Seems like Verizon is interested in keeping customers after all.

You'll catch up to Verizon eventually (NOT!) But keep right on spewing outright lies in your commercials about how you have the largest 4G LTE network. There's enough sheeple out there to buy your BS while Consumer Reports rates you THAT ABSOLUTE WORST CARRIER of the big four.

It's because people are dumping this piece of crap in droves!!! After a SIXTH one started going kaflooey with all the lockups, freezes, intermittent lags going from screen to screen or making calls from the call log all to the point where it became unusable, I called Verizon (for about the 50th time since I became a Droid Charge owner, no joke, no exaggeration!) and they moved up my upgrade from next January to now. I walked into a ...

Now on my 5th unit in 14 months including 3 in the last month and a half. Verizon keeps sending me refurbished replacements, each with else something wrong. Have wound up wasting several hours every time setting it all up all over again. Worst battery life imaginable whether or not on 4G. Ever heard of a phone where you have to have 5 chargers and 3 batteries just to keep going? Locks up, shuts ...

the Android 2.3.6 / Gingerbread update back on December 3rd. Made even better since the over the air update released yesterday, thanks to which it now takes about ½ the time to restart when swapping out the battery. It's apparent Verizon, Samsung, and Google read all the negative user reviews on this phone, got off their asses, and fixed just about everything, FINALLY! Practically all the issues outlined in the negative owner reviews have been addressed to the point where I wouldn't ...

No, you're far from the only one with this problem. This is one of the many fixes a Gingerbread (Android 2.3.X) update is supposed to address including the suck ass battery life. The fact that Verizon has now upgraded the 4G LTE phones that came out before AND after ours (the HTC Thunderbolt and the LG Revolution) with the newer Android operating system while leaving us with our thumbs up our rear ends is starting to really piss ...

Got my Droid Charge back in May a week after it came out. Last week, the display started showing faint horizontal lines top to bottom. Verizon sent me another one. After HOURS of trying to transfer everything, I realized backing up the phone's folders to your PC and then back via the USB cable is not enough. After several calls to tech support, I finally got a Verizon Tech on the phone that knew WTF he was ...

How about showing support for a product who's warranty expired? Once your HP product goes out of warranty, you can no longer chat nor even email them a question without being charged a fee. This is BAD BUSINESS, the kind that'll make me shy away from ever buying an HP product again! My god, talk about penny wise and dollar foolish.

They said it was AT&T and T-Mobile. And that negotiations are still underway for Verizon and Sprint. Since AT&T & T-Mobile are GSM and Verizon & Sprint are CDMA, I'd bet the author of this article got it wrong since they're likely putting in one type of system first for the experiment. I was in Hong Kong in 2004. Cellular service was already subway system wide everywhere over there. People were yacking away on the trains ...

I have every leg in the world to stand on when it comes to AT&T. 1. That blemish is already off my credit record since it's over 7 years. 2. Those surveys ARE unbiased, so what's your point? 3. What special treatment? That AT&T should have made sure their phones worked like every other carrier's did in a key 9/11 disaster relief locality outside of Ground Zero? And in this case, where the processing and identification of ...

The problem was that I didn't find out until years after the fact that they blemished my credit and by that time, my now ex-accountant disappeared off the face of the earth, my bank statements in tow. 2. Consumer Reports cell carrier ratings are from subscriber surveys, NOT their own tests. 3. Yes, I am bringing up what happened 9-10 years ago. If you were on 9/11 disaster relief and ...

There's plenty of reasons why AT&T has ALWAYS been the lowest rated cellular service throughout the ENTIRE country by Consumer Reports, and that's in ALL AREAS including coverage, dropped calls, customer service, etc. What I was put through by them as a 9/11 rescue worker was absolutely unconscionable! http://www.epinions.com/content_62972399236 I'll NEVER forget my only New Years Eve at Times Square.
