Exactly, locked down, caused problems with intercarrier capatablity which kept prices up. I look at CDMA as the Ebola Virus of mobile technology.

in the Article: T-Mobile Courting Verizon Customers with Two-Week Trial forum

This would work if you're near end of your contract, and thinking of switching, yeah they'll pay termination fee's, and re-activation fee's. But TMO also take's your VZW phones, so if you decide its not for you, then you're on the hook for buying new devices.

Palm self destructed, Ericsson basically partnered with Sony and Sony is still in the marketplace and took over the whole business, Blackberry is in a precarious postion, they may make a comeback but at its previous level.

in the Article: HTC Offering Camera Improvements to AT&T One M9 forum

HTC and I guess you can toss the carriers into this are going to catch a lot of defication because people are going to be without their M9 for 20 minutes to improve their phone? To me I give HTC credit for fixing a problem sooner rather then later. I hope all of you who have bought the M9 see's postive results from it.

in the Article: T-Mobile Asking $780 for Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge forum

Its not so much TMO or any other carrier asking more or less around the amount of money, this is a Samsung thing. These are like iPhone prices, and people bitch about them charging these prices. Seems like price gouging from both of these companies. On a postive side, I did play with a SGS6 edge and non edge today, it is a nice phone at Best Buy, the version seemed unbranded, and per them a pre production ...

Only problem is DT if they so wish, can bid for spectrum at the same level as AT&T and VZW. They just refuse to.

in the Article: After China Settlement, Korea Now Eyeing Qualcomm forum

In no way I'm a fan of Qualcomm, but I always find it odd that countries and trading blocks like to fine or go after anti-trust practices of everyone but their own companies? And the US is no better they do it too.

I wonder when it is finalized is this the ROM that will replace CM 11s on my OPO. Or are they going to still going to go to CM12s for Lollipop? I use my phones daily and not going to try the alpha or beta version that the blog said is on their url. Happy New Years Versed

Yes and no, if Sprint (or any other carrier) acts as the agent in billing as a pass through form their customers and getting some payment from that vendor. Then yes, they are involved.

in the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge (GSM) forum

To be honest,I don't understand the whole point of this device and the Note 4? Essentially the same device with some screen schtick. Still its Samsung, love them or hate them, basically since they started getting all their phones knoxed up and unremovable crap like Evernote, I take my money elsewhere.

in the Article: Congress Warns FBI to Leave Peoples' Cell Phones Alone forum

If the government used information as legitmate tools to fight terrorism, I might see their point. But the truth be it Bush or Obama, such information is not being used for legitmate uses but for unlawful survalance. Money and equipment that was supposinlgly used to fight terroism is being used for other purposes, like scanning license plates and issuing tickets for not having one's car insepcted, or forgetting to re-register.

Verizon doesn't have to worry about wifi calling, because with VZW or AT&T it really isn't needed. They cell towers and building penetration for making mobile calls.

Problem with Sony is they have great designed, but are medicore in performance compared to other phones in the upper tier. Maybe the Z3 will be different?

in the Article: Sprint Hangs Up on Dan Hesse, Names New CEO forum

I read somewhere recently he was most respected and admired CEO's, as per employees of the company. Have to think thats impressive. He does seem like a decent guy, and has tried to sell his company from his heart. And thats not acting like a baffoon. Still a shake up at the top may help Sprint. I sure hope so. Even if I never use them.

Re: Bunch of hypocritical corporate schills
Aug 7, 2014, 9:10 PM
in the Article: FCC Chief Glad Sprint Ditching T-Mobile Bid forum

I'm not so sure it would be a good idea, I can see a return to nasty roaming fee's, or truncated service being provided if one is out of the area. Just like at our friends from the "Great White North". Go outside your home area and you can get screwed. Heck some have better roaming agreements with US carriers, then if you're from Newfoundland then visit Vancouver, you end up getting hit with fee's and ...

in the Article: FCC Chief Glad Sprint Ditching T-Mobile Bid forum

In bed, not so sure, prefering the big two carriers, yes, I think they do for whatever reason. Not all of Sprints problems can be blamed on AT&T and VZW, many were bad decisions on their part. As far as data speeds lets be honest, on a smartphone, I really doubt anywould notice a difference between 15 or so mb's down then 30. That all is bragging rights. Rather see some nationwide consistancy on all the carriers ...

John, I happen to agree having four carriers woud be better then 3, having 5 major carriers would be even better. You may not believe me, but I wish all of them did well. And I also agree I don't know how long TMO will be able to keep this up. Sprint as far as using evdo and regular voice for calls ir good here, but they always neglected where I live improving ...

Aug 2, 2014, 4:41 PM
in the Article: FCC Won't Allow Joint Bids in Spectrum Auction forum

John, Softbank and DT each could match any bid from VZW or AT&T they choose not to. What they want is special treatment at the expense of US taxpayers subsidizing foreign owned companies. If either the big two went to Japan or the EU and asked for special treatment and deals so they can compete with the local carriers I assure you they would be laughed out of the ministry and given instructions ...

Re: Throttling
Jul 31, 2014, 3:50 PM
in the Article: Verizon Defends Throttling Plan forum

Well seeing that nobody has a contract with VZW if they maintained an unlimited plan. It means when they bought a new device they paid for it outright or used some pay off scheme that VZW provides. So there is no change in terms in a non exisiting contract. Now do I think VZW is right in doing this, no way. They should have kept those who maintained thier unlimited plans in accordence with their guildelines to ...

Slammer, If I didn't just get a One Plus One, I'd would probably have got this device. Played with a non Verizon version and it was snappy, the buttons on the back didn't bother me, more or less not better or worse then tradional placements but more of a getusta thing. LG sure has come a long way, and hope for more in the future.

Went to their website, over cluttered, no information outside of one price quote of $49.95. Won't let you in until you provide information like name, email etc.. To me this seems like a scam or some kind of shady business. Sales should be transparent, I should not have to give informatation to check coverage, or what BYOD type I would need. Maybe I'm wrong, maybe they just haven't fully openned their site. But very ...

True but the price is right. I use Swiftkey and like it, and yeah it does some crazy auto correct that drives me nuts now and then, espeically if using something other then english. Right now I use it on my SGS4 M919 on Cyanogen, Never cared for SK on tablets like my Nexus 7.

I happen to agree with what T-Bone says, it is an abused system, which you pay for it inside your bill if you're post paid. I wouldn't mind it so much if it was used for the exact intended purpose as a lifeline.

only used wifi calling once with my tmo line, was in a pub with open wifi in Nassau, called my mom to make sure all is ok at home. Did it more for fun then need. Honestly, I keep that off. Main reason I guess is tmo's medicore coverage in buildings. If it works for you, fine. See nothing wrong with it Well the beer was good, 5 bottles for $10 and in a nice AC place.

While making this a state law is up to debate, the idea isn't bad. it really wouldn't cost much if any to include this feature on a phone. And with all the crap loaded on phones, both carrier and from the phone makers it really isn't a big deal.
