I think you, me, and almost everyone would prefer to go back to that style; however, FaceBook in their infinite wisdom seems to think this is better and very reluctant to ever change back.
Oh I'm not saying I would buy it either but Just shows us that Samsun and the rest are ripping us off with lesser batteries.
Any still really see Windows as a big time OS?
If thats true why have we been only getting like 3000 at best from Samsung, LG, and the rest. Should make a huge dent in battery life.
Not saying I disagree with you; however, release any phone, of any type, without LTE now is just pointless. People who buy these types of phones don't upgrade or change phones often and in a couple years AT&T along with the other big companies will start shutting down 3G to farm it out to LTE and beyond.
While Sprints network may not be slow everywhere, it is in many places if you don't live in a major metropolitan area, and even then their penetration of signal is typically weaker of the big 2. If it's an option for you that's great but Sprint and Tmobile don't come close to comparing to big red or blue yet for coverage or reliability. I've had Sprint in the past and won't ever again. I'll take my ...
Re: Are they going to fix all the broken crap that everyone on the internet is complaining about?
Unfortunately, Microsoft does not write good, at least in my opinion, good mobile software. That coupled with limited availability makes it a no no for me.
Not sure why but these have been out for a while with Straight Talk, which is Trac. Had it for a month or 2 now for 1 of my kids. http://www.walmart.com/ip/Straight-T alk-Samsung-Prepaid-Galaxy-E5-LTE-S978L-Smart phone/47068403
Sorry but calling T-Mobile a real carrier negates your arguement.
Re: Beg to differ
I've had both the G2 and G3 and can honestly say I've been extremely happy with both and I was not an LG fan at all before them. Only got the 2 because it was free when I started service and bought some iPhones.
Re: Beg to differ
You said "But, in all honesty, the industry is trying to groom the consumers for full dependency on industry control. Sell the consumer an expensive device but eliminate any control. " but they already do that it's called the iPhone :o
Re: A Zen Phone One M10 ?
HTC used to be thought of as a quality phone manufacturer but the first HTC ruined that and somehow I doubt being bought by another of the "generics" is going to improve quality

Hold your horses.
While I agree with most that Dish is a fairly terrible company to deal with and I in no way want to see this happen, lets wait 5 minutes and watch it fall apart just like the last 5 attempts DT has made to see of T-Mobile. In 2 months it'll be rumored that someone else is making a bid too. At this point I think the only person not rumored to buy T-Mobile is the Pope.
Re: Ok who's jumping on next??
Thank you for the back up there. I'm sorry but no one is making these decisions over an LG Escape. Anyone who ever entered into a 2 year contract for as a cheap a phone as that either doesn't know anything about cell phones or just isn't too bright. All that said, there are times the new plans make sense more than a typical 2 year contract but the savings aren't always as big as some would have you believe. ...
Re: why not
Yeah I think that about covers it at this point. I've always loved my blackberries but at this point I think even they see it as if we allow a keyboard out there for the iphone or android as good as ours, our platform is so far behind we might as well close the doors.
Ok who's jumping on next??
It was only a matter of time before this became a requirement to some extent. Far too many mobile customers have no shot at Next, Edge, or whatever other name companies have for it due to bad credit. With all the major carriers trying to get away from the perceived "bad" 2 year contract deal all together, it's starting to hit their bottom line and they need more people on board. If you really crunch the ...
I have a bridge for sale...
in Brooklyn perhaps you've heard of it?? Anyone who thinks this is realistic or accurate would be willing to buy swamp land from the Clintons I think.
Re: Under no pressure
Count me in that group and even when they say that have coverage don't count on it. My area shows pretty decent LTE on their map but I've had friends visit and they are lucky to get any service and if they do it's 1x or 3g at best.
Re: Their only hope...
I'm not sure on the numbers but even then I doubt most people would feel that Windows is killing them even from a software perspective.
Re: Contracts will never go away...
Right about that as well as there are a ton of people out there with poor credit that will never qualify for a next plan which leaves them in the dark.
Under no pressure
But for the past what, 7 or 8 years, they've done nothing but look for ways out.
I know Radio Shack at this point is small potatoes, but allowing them to sell off data that was agreed never to be sold in any way, shape, or form is just wrong. Let this be a warning to all that no agreement is set in stone and that once you give your info out it is no longer yours ever again.
Re: The Solution to this
Which they have every right to ask for before giving it to the police as far as I'm concerned but your carriers concerns in this area are not those of the suspect and doubtful fought against as hard.
Re: Here's a quarter call...
I never said they don't work for the people that have it and don't need to go out of more populated areas, my personal experience however I'd still prefer blue or red just from what I see my friends services like with Sprint and Tmobile. I also realize they are doing what they need to try to be strong in those areas and support their customers, my post is primarily just about the coverage which I'm sorry still ...
Re: Here's a quarter call...
Travel with Sprint somewhere that isn't on a major highway and things change a lot. I'm not saying it's not good where it works, which is still debatable, but anyone who thinks Sprints coverage with roaming still adds up to big Red needs to take another look. I do realize a great deal of the country does live in bigger areas and Sprint and Tmobile are a viable option for them but there is also a fairly large number ...
Re: Oh escape2
Why would anyone get locked into a contract for 2 years when it costs less to buy it out right than most high end phones, with a contract?? If I'm going on contract with a 99 cent phone it may not be this years model but it will be a much better phone than that.
Here's a quarter call...
someone who cares. No offense to any of their customers but until they can come close to rivaling either big blue or red in terms of coverage, both sprint and tmobile shouldn't be bragging about coverage. I wish they it did matter but unless you never leave a city they just aren't an option.
Re: The Solution to this
That's only a solution if they get it off of your phone and not from the provider, which it sounds like that's where it came from in this case.
Re: Honesty. Thank you.
If you think this is honest, I hate to tell you this is no where near the truth. I have Verizon and my friend has Tmobile, when he comes to my town he's lucky to have 1 bar of 3G but this map shows strong LTE all around my area, hell even sprint has good coverage here. Don't get me wrong I'd love for Tmobile or Sprint to be a realistic challenger to Red and Blue but ...
While I think iMessage is great, this has been a major issue for the better part of the last 2 years or so. It's insane that it has taken Apple this long to do this but they aren't alone as the major carriers should have been pushing them for this from the start. Working in tech support, I can tell you how many calls were wasted on this issue and pushed back others.
Re: fbi scam
I'd start looking for recently installed apps that could be behind it but the safest way to make sure it is completely gone is to master reset it.
Re: Still At A Loss.
The material used in them may not be cheap or perform cheaply but that doesn't mean it didn't feel cheap. I've owned an SIII and spent time with both the note 2 and 3 and honestly build wise they don't come close to feeling as "high-end" as any iPhone I've owned, or my LG G2 for that matter. Samsung has put the "horse-power" under the hood in their phones for a while now but I think you would ...
While the price point is a bit high considering the price of previous nexus devices, it is the first that I'm considering buying. While the pure Android experience was always a nice feature, most of the nexus phones lacked in several spec categories; camera, no lte, no removable battery. Those facts usually kept me from seriously considering a nexus phone.
Re: Still At A Loss.
You're making an "apples to oranges" comparison there. Yes, I see your point of plastic in both but they don't mean the same thing and I think you know that. High end performance cars use those materials to be able to get the "most bang for their buck", while maintaining the same feel and look as their steel counterparts. The stiff feel of the suspension of a Porsche is by design and wanted by someone who ...
While not all that interesting...
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.
Re: I think
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 ...
Re: Verizon iPhone 5S: Can it Talk and Surf at the same time?
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.
