Just as long as the new iPhone has a bigger screen...I got big hands and to use that small screen isn't feesable.

EEE Gasp....I've seen the writing on the wall. If the iPhone 6 comes out and its got the bigger screen....Then I may have to dump Android for it.

Kit Kat Disappointing

in the AT&T forum

So I finally got the upgrade and am kind of disappointed. I didnt see anything new that it added except the white icons...Everything else seems to be the same. Maybe I am missing something here I don't know but I think the next bad boy I am gonna grab is gonna be the new HTC device that will be the latest/greatest thing

in the AT&T forum

CellStudent said: It's very, very common to have "mixed service" for up to 72 hours when porting a number around. All the back-office communication that happens at Verizon to release the number pays no attention at all to whatever timestamps and queues are triggered on the AT&T side of the transaction (i.e. SIM card insertion). All the timing is handled by business systems. Initiating a port prior to the second phone being activated is expected to interrupt service in ...

sparker781 said: Sadly I asked and I get the standard answer of "The numbers are automatically generated." Should I call be calling customer service or sales? Well good news...Well sorta. I ordered my new phone with ATT, did manage to find out that my old number was still available. Apparently what I have to do is when I get my new phone call customer service, and request a number exchange. Not sure if they'll send me a ...

epik said: I would add to what CellStudent said (keeping in mind what you've said about your number in this thread), that the number has likely been reassigned to a current AT&T customer. If the information that indicated it was now with CINGULAR (which is AT&T) said the number was PORTABLE, then it's probably active with someone else now. You need to make sure of this, and the easiest way is to call AT&T and ask. Sadly I asked ...

So when/if I decide to restart service do you think ATT would even know if that number is available?

epik said: Not sure what this has to do with my comment. I don't think anything. I was merely stating what was offered to me from Costco. I found out where my number is some company called: NEW CINGULAR WIRELESS PCS, LLC - DC....So essentially that number is gone unless I can contact that company and see if they can get it back.

SO i cant get the Samsung Galaxy S4 for $150 that includes a case 3 screen protectors and a car charger for that price...Though I think it's from Verizon which I am not too sure I want to rejoin with

in the Verizon Wireless forum

Sadly I didn't do it in time. I did call and they did confirm that I can resume service with them but I'd have to start fresh. When I inquired about getting the cellphone number back they said since the account was shut off for awhile it was released into the pool and a authorized reseller snagged the number (Whatever that means) and I'd have to get assigned a new one... I think I am going to ...

If someone was going to suggest the best phone thats not an iPhone on ATT what you people say? Thanks

Finally paid my balance. Does that mean Verizon will reactivate my service with the same number? Anyone know?

Couldn't Transfer My Number
Sep 20, 2013, 7:01 PM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

When Google Voice tries to call you to verify who you are, since my account's been disconnected it cannot call me to verify, therefore I think I've lost my number for good.

Yeah I fell your pain. I got a phone from them as well...For the first month of service I was constantly being called by someone else cause apparently it was this other persons number, Then I call them cause whenever I call a friend of mines or family it constantly shows up as "restricted" or "private" when I called their technical support I was told that the issue cannot be fixed because I didn't have enough signal ...

gunny said: I'm sorry to hear your work troubles it's tough out there. I believe your number is gone forever, there's no way to retain it. Keep your head up! :) Thanks for the quick reply. I called their "retention" team and they told me if the bill's paid before the 18th of july their a good chance my number will be retained after that they cant promise anything...I guess I'll see what happens Thanks

Account disconnected

So since I been out of work, I was unable to pay my cellphone bill. They disconnected my account which is understandable. Does that mean I lose my cellphone number that I've had since I was able to have a cellphone (Talking being with Cingular wireless)? Thanks

adam2106 said: it made plenty of sense- i can use my phone anywhere i go (using my T-mobile Blackberry Z10 and Hotspot) You just nailed it on the head when you said that you need a Hotspot. The reason I am still with verizon is because my phone just works. I want to make sure I can actually make calls and not have to worry about using a hotspot for anything. As I said internet speeds are secondary ...

erikpkp said: When you purchase a phone you pay a down payment and finance the rest (hence $20/month). If you want another phone (upgrade) you need to pay off the financing (buy the rest of the phone). Once that is done, you pay another down payment and restart the financing. That makes sense....So do I get the S4 with the bloatware or do I get the HTC One with no removable battery?

I am a little confused....What else is new...Right? I am going this week to sign up with T-Mobile....Finally gonna get the HTC One, If I put down the $20 and pay the monthly fees with the newer system, If I decided to upgrade to something else? I mean does the cost of the phone just get added to the oerall payment until thats paid off? For instance I sign up and am paying whatever it is a month ...

Not really worried about my browser speed as much as I am call quality. I mean whats the bragging rights if your walking around saying "Hey I can't make any calls but it's okay cause my web browser can load my pages faster than yours" That statement makes no sense

Jayshmay said: If people are interested in T-Mobile, buy are questionable about their coverage, either get a cheap phone, or borrow a T-Mobile phone from a friend or family member, as I did, and do a trial test drive. I drove from Derby to West Hartford in Connecticut, T-Mobile has a strong signal, and good speed's. Just waiting for the **S4** to come out and I will be enjoying HSPA 21/42!!! Contract with Vzn is up 5/20, I'll port my ...

Galaxy S4
Apr 30, 2013, 1:21 PM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

So I read a nice article about the Galaxy S4 and they were saying that for the 16GB version of the phone, most of the internal memory is taken up by more and more bloatware....Why do companies do that instead of releasing the phone with just the OS?

in the Verizon Wireless forum

Yeah I figured that whatever carrier I end up with I have to start getting into the habit of using Wi-Fi especially where allot of carriers are doing away with Unlimited everything. Sprint works okay in my area, I'll have to see if they are decent enough to get a signal....

While I do not want to switch to Sprint or T-Mobile for the HTC-One, I am on my way out of Verizon...Any chance this bad boy will ever see the light of day on the Big Red V?

andy2373 said: Check here; http://www.rootmetrics.com/check-cover age/ And here; http://opensignal.com/ I like Open Signal because you can see a carrier's towers. I checked out both sites and I have to say it aint looking good for T-Mobile in my area. I loved the idea of no contract and the fact that you get Unlimited everything....Ah well maybe ATT is better
