While not all that interesting...

in the Article: Pantech Chairman to Step Down, Company Plans Furloughs forum

can't really say it's a surprise. Pantech's smartphones are some of the worst on the market. They make a decent flip phone but that's about it. They have a terrible rep and have yet to release a device that has come close to making that better at all, in fact I would say nearly every device they release only makes them worse.

in the Article: NTIA Petitions FCC to Mandate that Carriers Unlock Phones forum

For one it's not stupid from a business stand point at all to lock the phone to a carrier. It gives the customer an incentive to stay or pay off their ETF. 2nd, if you really think that this will end because they say you can unlock your phone at any time do you really think they won't come up with something else, like no more discounts. You have to remember, yes you paid $200 for that phone ...

I was doing it about 30 minutes ago on my phone which is a S 3 with Verizon. I didn't know any of their devices could until I got the S 3 last year and was very diappointed the iPhone 5 could not.

Hell I'll settle for a comparable screen to current devices on the market and an easy way to move music and movies onto the phone.

For all the issues with Apple puts people thru with transfering data on to and off of their devices I expect a bit more sometimes. Move files on an Android and then try to on an Apple and see which you like more and I love my iPhones

Granted I think we all knew this was coming but still. Yes is it faster and have better hardware and yes does apple usually only do major redesigns every other year, but the same size yet again and nothing really outstanding. From an Apple fan I'm disappointed

Travel thru Wheeling, WV on the 4th on Interstate 70. As you pass over the Ohio River they let them off from a suspenion bridge about a 1/4 down the river from you.

I'm sorry though holding someone liable for the behavior of others is not a good idea. I may know your driving but maybe I think you're using hands free or that maybe you're only replying at red lights or stop signs. Bottom line the only person responsible is the driver, this is nothing more than a ploy to get more lawsuits involved. If you want people to stop texting and driving come out with harsher punishments ...

by that same token though all billboard ads should be illegal as well because the advertisers know the people reading them or looking at them are driving. It's a bad idea.

I can tell you for a fact that AT&T's warranty dept is not all in the Philippines. It's what I do here and I'm pretty sure I don't live there. There are also a number of sites in the US that process AT&T warranty but yes it is true at certain times you will get an overseas rep but just as likely to get one in the US who isn't great at english as well.

There's one problem with your arguement, where does your bill ever go down just because you either bought the phone outright or your 2 years are up?

Re: Totally ridiculous...

in the Article: Bill to Legalize Phone Unlocking Clears Committee forum

That is their way of collecting on the ETF. People who care about their credit score aren't the problem it's people who don't that see an ETF as no barrier to changing service. I'm not saying it's perfect but it does make sense from a business stand point. If it's that big of an issue then buy your phone outright and be done with it. Thats no contract to wait for and no ETF. No one forces ...

in the Article: Bill to Legalize Phone Unlocking Clears Committee forum

For 1 cars and cell phones are not the same thing. And if you're going to make comparisons at least do it right because dealerships rarely are the ones who own you loan. Oh and by the way if you don't pay your auto loan they come and take you car, so by that same token if you have a phone on 2 year contract pricing and cancel your contract your carrier should be able to take ...

in the Article: Bill to Legalize Phone Unlocking Clears Committee forum

Now that's a situation that shouldn't happen to an extent. But like I said if you buy your phone outright you should be able to unlock from day 1 if you do 2 year contract pricing I have no issue with them locking the phone til a certain point in the contract.

Re: Totally ridiculous...
Aug 1, 2013, 9:51 AM
in the Article: Bill to Legalize Phone Unlocking Clears Committee forum

If the phone isn't paid off or at least reached a certain point in the contract like maybe half then no and that's only if you got it at 2 year contract pricing if you bought it outright you should be able to right out of the box.

Re: Totally ridiculous...
Aug 1, 2013, 9:45 AM
in the Article: Bill to Legalize Phone Unlocking Clears Committee forum

If you did pay your ETF then most wireless carriers can and should release the unlock though. The problem is though that most people don't pay the ETF and expect to have their phone unlocked still.

Re: Totally ridiculous...
Aug 1, 2013, 8:46 AM
in the Article: Bill to Legalize Phone Unlocking Clears Committee forum

The problem with that statement is "that someone bought". If you bought it outright at full retail price then yes that should apply to you. But, if you got it at the 2 year contract price you only paid for part of the phone and still owe money on it.

Can someone find the out of contract pricing for the Q10. I swear I remember seeing it in the $300 or so range but I could be wrong. Thought I read it on scoop but when looking for news on the Q10 get the error of phone not found

Trying to find the article on scoop that I read a while back that said the price was in the 250-300 range but when I search by news on the phone it's unable to locate the phone. But I can't see it being that much

May have been contract pricing but thought it was anyway.

Re: These two phones

in the Article: T-Mobile to Sell BlackBerry Q10 June 5 for $99 Down forum

I could be wrong but I thought I'd read that the Q10 was going to cost in the area of $250 or 300. Not sure I'd pay $579 for it.

The 1 thing I predict it won't change is that if you are behind on your bill or owe the carrier money they will not give that code still and with good reason then.

Patent issues and licensing issues are a govt issue no matter how you look at it. That may not be the only reason I know that a phone gets locked to a company but it's not the only.

Exactly and just recently changed that there are no more exclusivity agreements that will stop unlocking a device.

Well I can speak for 1 carrier and I can tell you we still give out the unlock code if its available.

Then they should have stayed with their own OS. Sorry windows while not a bad platform simply is not holding it's own against iOS and Android at this point.

Softbank is urging Sprint's shareholders to approve the deal. What were they supposed to do?? Tell them not to accept the offer? /;|
