Awesome! Thanks for the info, I appreciate it! 8)

Interesting. So, the purpose of 2 different units is so that one can be purchased and used with AT&T, instead of T-Mo? Thanks for the info BTW! :D

I see. Doesn't T-Mo offer HSPA+ as well?

LTE model question...
Oct 16, 2013, 9:46 AM
in the Article: Sony Xperia Z Ultra, Z1, and SmartWatch 2 Now Available forum

For anyone savvy in this area of tech... For the Xperia Z Ultra - what's the purpose of an LTE only model? Does this mean it can be purchased and programmed for a CDMA carrier like Verizon or Sprint? If so, I assume this would mean it would only function (for voice? data?) when in a 4G area, is that right? Only other option would be wi-fi for data? I'm not sure if my assumptions are correct, but whether yes or ...

I agree...great article & makes sense! Can't believe some of the hater's responses. Can't reach 'em all evidently. 8)

Great article

in the Article: How a Sprint Phone Is Born forum

Very interesting...thanks Eric! I was a little dismayed with the statement & roadmap graphic that shows/states "...phablet by mid 2013". I was (& still am) hoping that we'd see that by year's end. Oh well...either way, I'll be here (w/Sprint) whenever it arrives. I'm not leavin'! 8)

Another great Note sale option...

...I commend Dan for this decision. Sprint new it'd be a few years before this deal started to work in their favor. However, I'm sure they didn't expect to have their CEO have to take a pay cut to help absorb the initial blow of this deal. I feel it was a good and responsible move on his part. To all the haters who keep saying "This will be the downfall of Sprint..." - people have been saying that ...

Umm...no. I simply "speculated" with info I already had on an article that didn't detail the info I was curious about. Incidentally, my speculation was incorrect, and I admitted to that. Why you hatin'? 8)

in the Article: Congress Wants Obama to Force AT&T/DoJ Settlement forum

LOL...of course they do! My point was to AT&T donating to Dems's "now" (as in not just to conservatives). I was NOT suggesting that Dem's have finally caved to accepting corporate donations! Anyone who's got their finger on the political pulse in this country knows that! However, there's more info & media surrounding AT&T donations given to conservatives, than Dems.

Easy Tiger. Perhaps try and read within the context of the post? Facts are straight as I presented them. Wouldn't be at all surprising that AT&T would spend $$$ on both sides of the aisle. But, there's more info & media surrounding AT&T donations given to conservatives, than Dems.

"I'd love to know..." "...there just might be..." "Sounds like..." = Speculation "...(Republican)..." = loose accusation "...AT&T donates A LOT of money to conservative politicians..." = Fact Strong speculation that ended up being incorrect, thanks to your added info. But, not strong accusation or claim. Make sense?

Well, if you reread my comment...you'll notice that I made no STRONG accusation or claim, but speculated on information that is readily available to the public. It's no secret that VZW and AT&T donate hundreds of thousands of dollars to conservative politicians. Interesting that the House members were all Dem's...perhaps they're receiving donations now too. Curious & scary.

in the Article: Congress Wants Obama to Force AT&T/DoJ Settlement forum

I'd love to know which (Republican) House members are writing the President in support of the merger. Since AT&T donates A LOT of money to conservative politicians to help rally support for their own interests...it's not hard to fathom that there just might be a link between who received donations, and who is in support of the merger. Sounds like AT&T has finally requested to make a withdrawal on their earlier "political deposits". Ridiculous. Oh...& domestic job creation???? Give me ...

Issues after Gingerbread update?
Jun 20, 2011, 4:23 PM
in the HTC EVO 4G forum

The EVO 4G got the Gingerbread update today. Anyone else experiencing the voicemail notification icon that appeared after the update was installed, and now won't go away? I've tried rebooting, turning phone off, removing battery, task killing, and yes....called my voicemail several times to make sure I really didn't have a new voicemail. There doesn't seem to be a way to clear the notification. WTF?! /;|

in the HTC EVO V 4G / EVO 3D (CDMA) forum

The specs of the EVO 3D here on PS show that the EVO 3D is also getting Android 2.3.3, is that not correct? Also, won't the EVO 3D have a Super-LCD screen (which apparently has a better display configuration than the AMOLED's)?

Re: EVO 3D Vs Nexus S 4G
May 6, 2011, 10:12 AM
in the HTC EVO V 4G / EVO 3D (CDMA) forum

Personally, I'm more excited about the update to the SensuUI (v3.0) than the added 3D functionality. The 3D will be fun for a little while (headaches & all!) but, I'll probably rarely use it. For me and what I expect from a phone is the experience when using it. So, a phone's user interface can make it or break it for me. I really love HTC's SenseUI, so much so....that when I check out other Android or iOS phones, ...

A couple questions on specs...
Mar 23, 2011, 10:15 AM
in the HTC EVO V 4G / EVO 3D (CDMA) forum

Storage: This PS article states the EVO 3D comes with 8GB of on-board storage, expandable to 32GB. The PS specs state that it has 4GB of memory, and comes with an 8GB microSD card. HTC's website states that it comes with 1GB of internal storage, and 1GB of RAM (but, also includes a footnote). Not sure which is correct, or if perhaps they're all somehow correct. Can someone help clear this up for me? Screen: I can't find any info ...

Hmm...I'm not sure I understand your comment. To help me out, can you give an example of a handset that has style AND substance? Also, can you explain how the EVO 3D is an example of "not committing to things"?

I should've added this before... When there were talks of a Sprint/T-Mo merger...I was more in support of that, than opposed. If a merger/acquisition HAD to take place amongst the top 4...that to me would've been the lesser of all evils. 8)

I'm not interested in it either...
Mar 22, 2011, 10:20 AM
in the Article: Verizon Not Interested in Sprint Buyout forum

As a long time Sprint customer...I'm quite happy with there being "4" top carriers. IMO the AT&T-Mobile merge/buyout is/would be unfortunate for the consumer in the grand scheme of things. A VZW merge/buyout of Sprint would only make things worse. Less options = Less competition = Less innovation = Bad for consumers.

No he's not...& I think it's great! He's very sharp and not afraid to give credit to his competitors where credit is due. Sadly, that's a less common virtue in the world of business. I've always like Dan Hesse, and I'm thankful for the role he's played in breathing life back into Sprint. 8)

tangocharlie: Actually, Sprint's customer service in the stores and on the phone is quite good. The horror stories you shared (whether personal or heresay) are outdated. Yes, there was a time the company suffered greatly from their inept CS Reps. But, they listened to our complaints, and made changes. Yeah, I'm sure there may still be some reps out there that are less inclined to help the customer. But, I've had nothing but top-notch service for the last 3 ...
