You don't think 72:36 sounds cooler?

I remember that thing was going out the door all day as the free phone. And then coming back because it was total crap. haha

2.5GHz eh?

So that's what they did with the old WiMAX spectrum. Didn't they realize it could barely penetrate a piece of paper?

No memory card slot, no headphone jack, front that looks like a S8, back that resembles a typical LG, and then that price tag. What's the point?

in the Article: Software Update Lets Galaxy S8, S8+ and Note8 Owners Disable Bixby Home Button forum

It should not be forced like that anyways. I have the S8 and cut a notch in my case to avoid pressing it. Bixby is flawed and is still not ready for release (it's still a beta program). Samsung kept coming out with software patches as people kept finding ways around having that button activate every time. Looks like they are finally admitting defeat at least as far as that is concerned. It should still be a choice as ...

Agreed. I don't see any up side to this whole thing.

Not a good idea

in the Article: BMW Might Replace Car Keys with Smartphone App forum

You get a spare key with a car, what happens if you lose your phone? You can't even use the car to get to a cell phone place to get a replacement phone so you can log back into the app.

It's up to the phone manufacturers to add that functionality. The upcoming iPhones and Notes are already anticipated to have access.

Don't focus on stores

Maybe they should invest in more coverage instead of more retail locations?

Oh but have they fixed burn-in issues?
May 30, 2017, 4:32 PM
in the Samsung Galaxy S8 forum

They need to address the biggest drawback of these devices and that's the infamous AMOLED burn-in. You can always tell what a person does the most based on what gets burned into their screens.

Because at this point, each carrier is coming up with their own 5G in different ways. Years ago in the race to implement 4G service, Sprint did the same thing with WiMax hoping that would be the standard. It flopped and Sprint lost millions of dollars.

I still see people to this day clinging to these plans. However I have found that maybe 95% of people would be paying LESS by switching to a offered plan. I see people paying $100+ more than what they should just to hold on to that. It's a crutch word that is costing some consumers thousands a year. For anyone that has the old unlimited plan, call your carrier and have them analyze your plan. If saving a hundred ...

So this means updates are going to be reactive instead of proactive and be delayed instead of immediate? This is why the Nexus line was losing steam, and this completely puts out the fire.

Since regular Messenger is about 150MB, I would use this instead. I even have a low end device, I just think it's bloaty and I don't use half of the "features" of the full version.

These forced updates on a nearly weekly basis is out of hand. I have an iPod and iPad and I cringe every time I see the notification. My android updates maybe once or twice a year.

You can still go directly through Samsung for it. 1-800-SAMSUNG

in the Article: Samsung to Recall Note7 Amid Reports of Fires forum

Seems to be the current action plan with each carrier now (I work for AT&T). Seems that Samsung may be throwing in an extra kicker for those that stick with the Note to the tune of a 256GB card or Gear VR. Most people already got one anyways but Samsung may do a second for each person.

Carrier customer service number
Sep 2, 2016, 9:16 AM
in the Article: Samsung to Recall Note7 Amid Reports of Fires forum

If you have one, call your carrier's customer care for further instruction. AT&T 800-331-0500 Verizon 800-922-0204 Sprint 888-211-4727 TMobile 877-746-0909

I'm actually bummed about this...

in the Article: Samsung's Milk Music Sours, to Be Discontinued forum

I have always preferred Slacker over Pandora. The fact that Milk ran off the Slacker engine and featured less ads was a real bonus. If there was one of these crazy services Samsung tries and failed at (messenger, hub, etc) I was really hoping Milk is the one that made the cut.

in the Article: Sprint's 3-Channel LTE Reaches 295Mbps forum

2 bands... why not 3 bands... why not 18 BANDS!!!! Stacking coverage over existing coverage does nothing for Sprint's #1 reason why they will always be sub-par, and that's their overall coverage. No point offering ridiculous speeds if only less than 5% of the population can enjoy it.

Good app so far

in the Article: Here Maps Rebranded to Here WeGo forum

It has a better feel with a cleaner, simpler, yet more informative interface than the Google Maps, IMO. You can download entire states offline to minimize data usage. I'd give this a shot for anyone that is thinking of trying alternatives.

Huge difference in quality too.

in the Article: AT&T and Verizon Kick Off Interoperable VoLTE Calling forum

In central NY, we've had the HD calling (VoLTE) for a while now for AT&T. It is a major leap in clarity. With my hearing condition not the way it used to be, I've been able to hear people as if they were standing next to me. Can't wait until this is an industry standard.

$180 a year?

So $15 a month in savings for TMO coverage? Not worth it unless you are in one of their good coverage areas.

I have their info and have been on the phone with them multiple times as well as their Facebook chat. They are horrible to deal with and keep giving me the run around. -_-

How about take care of the LAST deal???

in the Article: Samsung Giving Away Gear VR to Galaxy S Buyers forum

I jumped on this deal the last time that they did it and I'm STILL waiting for it to be fulfilled. The last email I got from them they are on backorder until the end of the summer! How about you take the 600k you say that's available and send them to the people that ARE STILL WAITING!!!

When the M7 came out, the stereo front speakers were what captured me to go HTC. I loved them being someone that likes to watch vids on my phone. Then the M8 came out and I quickly grabbed that one. What a massive improvement! Then when the M9 came out, there was a slight decrease in what I though was the selling point. It was still a decent phone. Then the A9 came out and negated everything I fell ...

I didn't state what side of the fence I was on. I was implying that some services are essentially getting a "priority" by being data free and others have the allotment counted against them. I look of it as a favoritism. To me it reminds me of the whole net neutrality scenario over again.

You are allowing unlimited access to certain services and keeping a limit on others? Sounds like net neutrality all over again.
