in the Article: Verizon CEO Slams FCC, Wants Congress In Charge forum

There are plenty of monopolies..In central Texas where I live, unless you live in Austin where you have plenty of competition, there is only one choice if you want high speed data..And that is true in most of the country unless you live in a large city..I'm 300 feet from Austin in Pflugerville, I have the choice of Suddenlink..That's it..Austin has Google fiber Att, Time Warner, Grande..The government should get involved and get rid of these local exclusive deals ...

I agree, but with the current republican atmosphere in congress, it will only get worse.They tend to give these big corporations what they want, not what is good for consumers..

Hell no..

Net neutrality is great for consumers and small start ups..Time to have more competition and less monopolistic behavior from these giant telecoms.

There is a very good reason the FCC has carriers on different frequencies. If you don't know why you shouldn't be commenting..

The people that count, investors would be stupid to invest in blackberry..Analysts had warned about problems at Enron, people just didn't pay attention.. BlackBerry will be another Palm in 3 years or less..

Re: Bad news for Blackberry

in the Article: Apple Joins Forces with IBM to Bring iOS To Enterprise forum

Actually it is bad news for BlackBerry.. Just listening to the BBC business report and they brought up that very question.What you say is correct, while BB has never had a relationship with IBM, it will still take more business away from the failing company..No one is really excited about the Amazon deal and analysts expect BB it to cease operating eventually..

For T-mobile to compete, this needs to happen. They are such a minor player they hardly make a dent.For Sprint, this can open up some areas they don't currently cover.

in the Article: Texas Senator Blocks Confirmation of FCC Chair forum

Reuters is one of the most respected and oldest news organizations. They are known for upholding journalistic objectivity since their founding in 1851, asking very tough questions that maybe you don't like, but they do it to all sides. Nothing in the article is untrue..

in the Article: Sprint LTE Hits The Bronx and Brooklyn July 30 forum

Sprint launched their LTE in THEIR largest markets, where THEY have the most subscribers, not small towns and unheard of cities. Just because some of you don't know geography and haven't heard of a city doesn't mean they don't matter. Here in Texas, LTE has been live for almost a year in cities like Austin (metro over 1 million) San Antonio, (almost 2 million) Houston, ( 2.5 million) and Dallas FT. Worth.( 2 million). These are big Sprint markets. ...

in the Article: Sprint's First Tri-Band LTE Devices Available July 19 forum

Actually he is right, most people do use less than 1 gig a month. It's a psychological issue, people think they need unlimited to make themselves feel better for fear of going over their plan..I sell all carriers including pre-paid and very few customers ever get to one gig..Att and Verizon grandfathered customers that still have unlimited don't even realize that they are throttled back because they never reached their data threshold. People in the industry like me, and ...

Socialism works very well in the Scandinavian countries plus they are the most educated and happy people on earth. Travel to Norway sometime, a real eye opener..

Data Speed/Limit

in the Article: Virgin Mobile Adds Daily Data Access Plan forum

I use their Overdrive pro on the $35 plan. They allow 10G at full 4g (Wimax) speeds before they throttle you down. Not bad compaired to the competition. I live in Austin where Sprint's 4G LTE has not fully deployed yet but 4G wimax has a good footprint.

in the Article: Samsung Loses Apple Patent Case forum

So you are saying that Americans are immoral and selfish. I think we all know that. I chose HTC..They pay their workers a decent wage and don't manufacture them in China. Oh, and I do "think" about the animals when I don't eat them..And I buy products made in America when possible to keep jobs here that corporations want to ship overseas. I'll be staying on my "high horse" because I'm not selfish..

Paying workers 17 cents an hour to build an iphone is evil..This Liberal uses Android and would never own an Apple product..

I have had fewer issues selling Kyrocera over the last 3 years than with Motorola..This includes warranty issues and general problems. I wouldn't carry them if they were as you describe. There are several other brands ( named after fruit) that I wish I didn't have to deal with..

Why would you call this phone a pos? Kyrocera/Sanyo have made pretty good phones over the years. Just because its not a geek phone and its for people that work hard for a living and doesn't suit your needs doesn't make it a pos..Sounds elitist..

Verizon can't buy Sprint, it would give them almost 150 million customers and wouldn't pass competition muster. Sprint will settle for a lower fine if found guilty.

Seriously, If those Teabaggers or Ron Paul kooks had their way we would have no regulation, airplanes would run into each other, 3/4's of the drugs would kill us, cell phone's would irradiate us. Government isn't perfect, but it's just about the best in the world. Keep in mind, WE CHOSE THEM.

in the Article: FCC Wants $819,000 from T-Mobile Over Lack of HAC Phones forum

For it to be Socialist, the government would have to own T-Mobile. Government regulations, laws, rules aren't socialist. They are voted on by our Representatives in Washington that we elected to do just that, as in the Constitution. A government agency telling you what to do is not socialism. If we didn't have these rules, companies would be able to do what they wanted, releasing dangerous name it..

AAA already has apps for their members. AAA Roadside and AAA Trip Tik. Roadside is cool, it will notify AAA when you have a problem and send them your exact location.Roadside even has a copy of your ID card in case you can't find it..They are free in Google Play and I assume in the Apple store..
