This crap bloatware should be called AnusFlash because that is exactly what is does, click on the hyperlink on this post and see just what it's all about.

Nice back up phone.

I wouldn't mind getting the G5 as a back up phone, or an interim replacement if I needed something in a hurry and wish to save up for something better.

Great, it's good to see many of the Chinese phone companies, many making a decent product allowing an option for an app draw.

in the Article: T-Mobile Boosts Throttling Threshold to 30 GB forum

I do live in Toms River, NJ and work in Pomona, NJ which is just outside of Atlantic City. There are some coverage issues when you get away from the towns surrounding Atlantic City, Galloway Twp. and Egg Harbor Twp. As well as leaving Ocean County, and going west towards Cherry Hill, NJ and Philadelphia. Off topic, but related, if one is thinking of going to T-Mobile, check out MintSim. With their current promotion, and ...

I don't like nor do I get into carrier or phone OS wars, but more and more I am considering porting from AT&T to T-Mobile, while I have a 40gb data plan on AT&T, 30 of those GB's I got on a promotion which raised my bill less then $18.00 per month. I pay about $245 per month, of which about $20 goes for a Next 24 for my wife's iPhone 7. And that is for 5 lines ...

And at least with Sprint, you'd get better coverage roaming abroad then at their home market.

At least allow for an option to have the app drawer.

It's not Congress, but the DOT. If they want to make a law against hands free driving, either leave it up to the state's, or go through the process and pass legislation and have it signed by the President. Not by a group of appointees, or civil servants making regulations.

No App Draw
Nov 22, 2016, 11:55 PM
in the LeEco Le Pro3 forum

I don't really care for phones that don't have an app drawer. And, no, I don't want to use Nova. No excuse, if there is an option for one fine, if not, wouldn't even consider it.

I doubt VZW will even stock this phone in most of their stores, and probably keep it to online sales, or special order in the store. They are more interested in selling their Droid line, Samsung's and iPhone's..

The greedy corporate executives which first split the company into two companies, and then sold it off to Google, then Lenovo are as much to blame. If one isn't committed to oneself, why should an off shore company be?? Basically, they wanted the name and trademark.

Hey, we've all been there, figuring you spent close to $900 for the phone, I can see where I'd get upset if I couldn't find a common feature. Good luck. Maybe I will pull the trigger.

in the Samsung Galaxy Note7 forum

I have a Note 5, and impressed with the Note 7, I pre-ordered from Best Buy, when I went to get it, they didn't have it. Nor did Best Buy have any 256gig sd cards of which I wanted, and they told me wouldn't get it till Oct. Reason I'm saying this is, I liked it, would have taken it if they had the phone, but canceled for strictly not wanting to spend the money at the present ...

As a night worker, I find these robocalls frustrating, spoofed numbers which look similar to local or work numbers, hawking crazy credit card protection schemes. Fine's seizure of assets and prison terms should be in order. The state and local governments should pass stricter laws, and I include other nations. All my numbers are on the do not call list. While I don't really like it, I don't include legitimate companies that I do ...

It probably can be disabled in the applications section of settings, but before I would commit, I'd go into an AT&T corporate store which should have a live one and see if it could be disabled.

in the Article: AT&T Resurrects the 'Cingular' Brand for Flip Phone forum

I know you or me wouldn't buy this phone, but I'm telling you there is a market for just simple mobile service, something like this or similar sells better then we both think. Maybe newer phone's will have LTE, and use VOLTE, but to be honest, the people who buy a simple flip phone only care if they can make a call, nothing else.

Problem is, the CC companies and retailers in the US are resisting chips in cards and the machines that use them. Just got a new CC today and no chip. This is not cutting edge tech. It's used all over the planet. You and others being nailed by fraud is the fault of Target and the CC companies that aren't using this tech. Only way to get them to put chips in cards, is ...

in the HTC 10 forum

If I didn't have a Note 5 and Nexus 6p, I would probably buy the HTC 10 direct and unlocked from HTC. HTC is offering a promo code for $100 which would make it $600 delivered (promo code HTC1008 if anyone is interested.) They also warranty the screen against breakage for the first year, as well as not voiding the warranty (on the unlocked version) if you unlock the bootloader. I also see that AT&T ...

Exactly, but I actually can do this, I keep an extra line, I can bogo, then cancel my extra line which I don't really care about the phone number since its rarely used, get the bogo then cancel that line. I know I am in a rare situation.

This seems a way better idea then using the cars data port, older cars can use the lighter slot and newer cars can run it off the usb port. That is if you need this solution.

If this company was viable, and not just a few phones sent out to some crowdfunding people, it probably have been good. Sure the looks of the turing are real nice, but it also using near two year old tech. I wouldn't mind using SailOS, but not on a niche product with little chance of viablity.

While I think 6 inches is big, there is a market for it, and it should be available. No matter the phone OS you choose, it's not a one size fits all. Right now I use a Note 5 and it doesn't seem so big after using phablets for several years. As far as the new Mate 8, I would like to see real time reviews, and the price. I konw the screen is 1080p, ...

These guys have a sense of self entitlement, while not a big fan of Sprint, they do have the right to run their own spectrum, there has been warning for well over a year. And I have a knee jerk reaction against groups who play the "think of the children" card. 1. These are public schools, they should be providing internet access. Most have agreements with cable companies that went along with the franchise for the town or ...

Yeah, but I'm also wondering since its being introduced in europe and asia first, if there is going to be a north american version. There are band differences in the phones sold in different regions in the past from One Plus. I would be interested if the lte band issue was solved, it had nfc and maybe using the 808 cpu.
