in the Article: Review: LG G4 for Verizon Wireless forum

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.

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

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

in the Article: T-Mobile and Dish Discussing Possible Merger forum

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.

in the Article: AT&T's Newest Next Plan Asks for 30% Downpayment forum

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. ...

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??

in the Article: AT&T's Newest Next Plan Asks for 30% Downpayment forum

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 ...

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.

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.

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.

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.

in the Article: T-Mobile Says LTE Footprint Now Matches Sprint forum

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 ...

in the Article: T-Mobile Says LTE Footprint Now Matches Sprint forum

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 ...

in the Article: AT&T Reveals the LG Escape 2 forum

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...

in the Article: T-Mobile Says LTE Footprint Now Matches Sprint forum

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.

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.

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.

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 ...

in the Article: Google Shows Off Nexus 6 Smartphone, Nexus 9 Tablet forum

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.

in the Article: Review: Samsung Galaxy Note 4 for AT&T forum

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 ...

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.

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

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.
