in the Article: BlackBerry CEO Says Smartphone Biz Is On a Timer forum

I don't think they are going to fail, I think the Venice is going to allow them to be a minor player. BB has its core user base, some corporate, significant amount of goverment use (not only Canada and the US) and a small but loyal amount of BB fans. But they won't be what they were, several years ago my sister who works for a major food corporation was given a choice, they will replace her corporate phone ...

Hopefully the new Venice will give them some more life support, doubtful they will become a dominate player, but at least be relevent.

I found when I first got the phone for AT&T volume seemed like you a bit low, but seemed to have improved, don't know why? Battery which I expected to be bad, was better then I thought. First real hard use that I was not home was today, started out at around 7:30am to take my daughter back to her University in Philadelphia gave me pretty good battery life, downloaded like 6 updates, some mild web surfing, ...

Yeah, thats why they probably opted for the iphones and Nexus 6 which have cdma capablity. But what is going to be even more insane, is all of a sudden VZW will act as if this is something new and innovative, never mind gsm has been doing this since the 90's.

I now this is the CDMA section but I did get the Note 5 (AT&T) for both the savings of $100 and the S-Pen. Its a choice and both great.

Nokia said or hinted they wanted to get back into the phone business in 2016, they could buy the site back from MSFT. But something tells me they plan more on marketing their name then making anything. And I agree is sad people are losing their jobs.

You do have a point, but also hearing about the next great Yabba Dabba Do network thats going to blow everyone else out of the water for every year, for the last 9 or more years. Hows that coming along? Or are they still gong to continue to blame everyone else for their problems?

What they should have done is fined them $1,000,000 then had their CEO, President and CIO given 80 or more of community service. Having pictures of them in orange jump suits picking up trash around government buildings would send a message.

Outside of Samsung has priced themselves out of what I'm willing to pay for a phone, also unless I have to replace a phone, I like to wait abit to see if issue surface first month or so While I do like the curve display, I'd save the money and get the Note 5 if I was to buy.

I do agree, the Note 5 and Edge are nice, but honestly they priced themselves out of the market. There are many great phones coming out in the sub $500 area with close spec's or to the point its not worth spending hundreds extra. The new Moto X Pure, OP2 (but too much headgames, no nfc, no rapid charge). Plus offerings from ZTE and other Chinese makers.

As much as I am no fan of Comcast, they'd probably be far better off, they'd invest more in its system, package it with their cable division, which would bring in more customers and with that cash. Softbank and to a lessor extent DT care far more for their home markets then they do here in the US. Not saying its right or wrong, but its a fact.

Stop Blaming

in the Article: Sprint Woes Weigh on SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son forum

Mr. Son, stop blaming the US Regulatory agencies and everyone else for failures in Sprint. Either put up or shut up. Its a failing network. And I find no joy in this. If the US regulatory agencies wants to keep 4 nationwide carries, so be it. This was well known before Softbank made their investment.

In the recent past it was AT&T that I guess had the closest relationship with Apple, now it seems TMO and its CEO Legere are. I know the guy can switch phones as oftem as he wants, but last few times I'm seeing him with the iPhone and promoting it.

PhoneMaster, Very true, but the iPhone user generally is a different animal, not better nor worse but are less into their phones and more use them as an after thought. Went through this with my daughter, she did not want the 6+ and was more then happy with the regular 6. She was in college and her phone broke and had to replace it. Ended up getting a 128gb ip6.

Yeah but they owned 80% of those companies. And true no slammer time for civil suits, but there is for fraud, and I guess in some convulted way they didn't commit a crime. Nevertheless it is wrong and I'm glad they got caught.

THE CEO and memebers of the managment team are lucky there weren't hauled off for fraud in handcuffs. I'm sure no where in no government anywhere would allow shill companies to be set up to take advantage of discounts that are afforded them.

I guess they have to spend $3.3 billion or what ever it is more if they want the spectrum. I just don't understand, set up shill corporations to defraud the goverment out of billions, and nobody goes to jail?

When I started this poast, I had no specific brand or phone OS in mind, nor intended. I just thought a near unheard of company, with a concept idea using already dated technology (which can be OK if priced righr) was a bit over the top. It had nothing to do with Apple or Samsung and what they charge. BTW the LG G4 is about the same price or cheaper bought locked or unlocked with better ...

Point made, but we are talking an Android device, there are quite a few with similar or better spec's for far less. And many from companies that we have heard about.

For some people this would work,if you want to keep up to date and having a constant re-occuring cost associated with it. This would work 1. if you want a carrier branded phone. 2. You to swap out a new device 2-3 times a year. There is something else to think about, you root or unlock a bootloader on a phone, and it shows i.e. knox trip. You are at the mercy of the local store ...

John, As far as the smaller carriers i.e. C-Spire, US Cellular I agree with you. But Sprint and T-Mobile are not small companies. They have the means to bid on the spectrum, wanting out of the US market and giving prefrence to their other markets has nothing to do with it. This is a quagmire, do you offer spectrum at a lower rate to foreign companies and charge more for US based company? Half of ...

in the Article: Verizon: T-Mobile's Legere 'Is Simply Wrong' forum

I can understand smaller regional carriers having a chance, but DT and to a lessor extent Softbank are rather large mulitnational corporations who can afford to bid at the same level as Verizon and AT&T. They just choose not to, basically because they also have to worry about their home markets. Asking the US Government to give a break to a foregin corporation will not go down all to well. If the big two were to ...

Now, take a Xanax or Ritalin and understand one thing, the CEO works for the Chairman. To put it some way that you may understand, he becomes the Chairman of the Boards bitch. High paid one, yes some influense, but if his antics piss off the COB's, he's gone.
