Re: Where have I seen this before? LoL
For better or worse, I have 3 off contract smartphones with AT&T, I am going to visit one of their stores Sunday or next week to see what will happen. In anycase whatever I do save its better then nothing. And hats of to T-Mobile for setting this trend.
Re: How disappointing
HawkeyeCC, I do agree seems to be a trend from all the major players except for Samsung. Having an extra battery is not the issue, I have car adaptors, extra usb charger at work, and one of those portable battery blocks that I use now and then. While not having a removable battery is not a deal breaker, its nice to have it for as said earlier, easier to replace a bad battery ...
I hope soon.
Last few days been checking my N5, still no update, I hope it comes sometime next week. But otherwise still happy with my N5.
Re: Not much better than the rest.
I understand for whatever reason why people don't wish to pay a device off in 6 months, yes 12 or 18 months would have been far better and seems to becoming an industry standard on direct buys from phone makers. But otherwise, if I wanted an HTC device, the 6 month deal would make it attractive. I happen to want HTC to continue being a player, and if this helps, so much the better.
JJinNYC, Deutsche Telekom is a very large corporation, and while I do understand where you're coming from, they can easily bid to the same level as AT&T and VZW if they so wish, they just don't for whatever reason want to make the investment. I have an AT&T and T-Mobile line and would like to see more coming from TMO, the just want to keep the money for their home market. I'd be as upset with them as ...
Re: Dear Sweet Jesus
And give you one guess who's going to pay for it?
Re: We understand?
I'm not worried about the technology of using the phone, its just going to be annoying.
Re: Ways to make it happen?
Couldn't have said it better myself. And if they do allow it, make it $20 min. plus $5.00 min federal tax. Similar to how inflight calls are handled now. If its that urgent, you pay. If its about little Johnny had diarhea, it will wait.
Re: Global Roaming?
It supports both cdma and gsm, not something new to Blackberry and some other companies. Now, wonder if the GSM side is locked, I don't know. Nor do I know if VZW did their usually trickery that blocks it from using domestic gsm carriers. While I probably never own another Blackberry phone, I don't want to see them fail. I don't take pleasure in people losing their jobs, nor less of choices in the smartphone market.
Re: Music playback via headset/bluetooth
Friend has the G2 on VZW, he actually returned his SGS3 he got from VZW, and hated the phone. (him not me) Prior to that he had the HTC Thunderbolt which he loved. I did play with his G2, really, really nice phone. Didn't see any problems, but didn't try out bluetooth options on it. Why VZW did this return and trade is something I don't understand, it was well after 30 days, but ...
Re: AT&T helping the competition?
I think that is very true as well. Just don't understand what AT&T is going to with having AIO and Leap as individual MVNO's. I know Sprint does it with sucess. I wouldn't doubt if they merge AIO to Leap, better marketing and Leap has a somewhat name recognition. And I do know, Leap isn't really doing well as it is right now.
Re: Not HTC, Motorola.
JJinNYC, while I don't think the Moto X is a bad phone, and is a good choice, but, I think the recent devices from LG have been pretty damned good. Using Samsung I think would have fueled the fire of basically not encourging diveristy in the Android phone ecosystem. HTC would have been a good alternative as well. I recently order the black 32gb N5, and on purpose waited a week for several reasons, really didn't want to ...
Re: Bad Move
JJinNYC sounds a bit fanboish to me, one bidder means less money for the government, and I'm sure it will go over well when they bitch to congress that we want a sweetheart deal for a foreign owned company (or majority owned) gets a subsidized price. Let the cards fall were they may, and let the highest bidder win. Now in saying all this, our mobile companies should maybe pool this, like some .eu companies and share it accross ...
Re: AT&T helping the competition?
Maybe so, but I doubt its from the goodness of their hearts. Oddly Sprint who was vocal over the TMO merger, has been dead quiet on this. Wonder if their new masters at Softbank shut them up for some reason we have no idea about. BTW $120 million (or whatever) to AT&T is like you and me buying tickets to a movie.
Re: Transitions Take Time
Sure they could, and I'm sure that has crossed thier minds, or already factored this into their costs. Roaming can be profitable, too bad Sprints has little spectrum and technology overlap with AT&T or it could have continued for both companies.
Re: Do some research before you make lame jokes
I think its time NJ changes its flag from its yellow background and coat of arms to a red flag, with a white circle and a swastika. Enough already, you have a law enforce it. This is all a money grab, between crap like this and red light cameras, nothing really for safty just revenue. Recently Freehold Township's Gauleiter had the license plate scanners by the Freehold Mall review all plates to see who may have out of ...
Re: T-Mo must be kidding
Not saying I even agree with what I am saying, because I wouldn't do it. But there are those who cannot come up with the full cost of the N5, and could afford to pay it over 22 months. So for them it works, and even at the inflated price, its a damned good phone that can easily stand up to similar devices which would cost more. I did buy a N5 outright, and the charges after shipping and ...
Re: Imma need some help here.
Darkitty, You should also consider the Nexus 5, I do know your post is over a month old. But came late to these posts. Don't discount LG, yes they made some dogs, but so has Samsung and most other brands. If the size is the issue, then the Nexus 5 or to a lessor extent, G2 are great alternatives. Friend at work for the G2 on VZW and played ...
Re: One phone to rule them ALL
I paid ful price, no free financing. Just didn't want that over my head, as well as sold off an HTC One 64gb developers edition as well as had a small $38 credit from TMO which helped. My other choices was the N5 fantastic phone, but wanted a larger display. And the Sony Xperia Z Ultra which would have been cheaper then the Note 3. Just found it to be a tad to large at 6.1 ...
Re: SD card, cover/case
I bought the SanDisk SDSDQUA-064G-U46A Ultra 64 GB microSDXC Class 10 UHS-1 for my Note 3, and at purchase bout the flip case so I can see time and notifications. I think the case was somewhat overpriced, and even if I ordered from a cheaper place, it would have been less then $10 difference, after the cost of shipping. Even more so since the TMO store took $5 off the price. Usually I prefer a slip ...
Re: 299.00 4S on BOOST MOBILE!!
Problem with Boost (yes I know its owned by Sprint in the US) is many of the users can't afford tradional US mobile plans, and find it hard in my opinion to afford the cost of an iPhone, SGS4 etc...If Boost, VM etc... Have some similar sales plan like a $150 downpayment (roughtly half) and maybe $12 a month for a year to pay the phone off, it would work.
To me this is a good start, or merge with a company that has a diverse technolgy portfolio in selling other consumer goods like HDTV's etc.. Every company has bad dogs, Samsung, LG Etc.. But all of them have made outstanding devices. This is what HTC really needs. Its hard for a company like HTC, Nokia and Blackberry to have a narrow focus of goods like smartphones. While many other devices are not phones, ...
They should Hire!
Well, maybe be they should hire Francesco Schettino the Captian of the Costa Concorida to be the CEO, while Lazardis can be Charman?
I think he basically sailed through confirmation with very minor oppostion in todays polical climate to prove that the Republicans aren't a party of obstructionist.
Even more so, they say they're reviewing their options?? Well, they had their day in court, they lost, Thats it, time to go home and go to bed.
I honestly think these leaks, are not an accident, but done on purpose to tweak people;s intetest. Back to the N5, does look like a nice phone at a great price, but even if I was going to order one, and probably will, I won't be an early adopter, maybe wait a month or so. Let others take the chance that there could be issues with a new phone. Friend just got a G2 on VZW, really ...
Re: Only 2G Data is free...
Exactly, good enough for the irc, email and a mild browsing, if more is needed, just buy the optional highspeed data plans.
Re: Tethering question
Right, but you can use your phone to wifi for your tablet. And as posted earlier only drawback is it would eat the battery on your phone if not near a power source.
Re: new share plans
I think I'm one of the few where mobile share works, I don't use gobs of data, 10gb for my family of 5 devices does me well, rarely use half of it, and we don't watch what I do. What I did need was minutes, I think I'm one of the few who here that actually use voice. What I never understood, is paying $10 extra for like a tablet, enough open wifi in my area and where I ...
Re: Might as well shut down the rest of the network
TMO has some great deals, and their new international roaming with data is pretty good, good enough at least to check email, go on the irc, and a few quick google searches, which for me is fine, when I travel, its for vacation, not a mobile commincations experience, so it would work for me. As far as the two as a choice, AT&T with my corporate discount puts me in more or less the same price range as TMO ...
I have the HTC One developers edition and got this a bit over a week ago. Good news for you Sprint users, its like getting a new device all over again.
Re: Old Sammy vs New Sammy
John, I think many people have feelings on brands on something they may have bought in the past, even somewhat recent. Best is to have an open mind. LG is an example, I think they have come along way in making some nice devices. Yes the Note 3 is a real nice device, if in the market, it probably be near the top of my list. But would like to see what ...
Re: And where
Now I've read they're going to offer the 5s and 5c to their Boost MVNO.
Re: And where
I guess you know just how much inventory Sprint has, and how many of whats left of its customer base is waiting for the 5S and 5C?
Re: And where
How about this, if you don't like the idea that VM is going to sell the 5S or 5C, then don't buy one?
Sprint should aquire more LTE towers, better throughput through its exisiting EVDO-A towers and more specturm. Not another loser company.
Re: Why Bother?
I think they're better then one or two Haitian mobile providers.
Lets hope this ships with an unlockable bootloader.
Re: Too cool!
You really don't think Andy didn't sign off on this?
Re: No, Wikipedia bashing is the problem
True it may not be perfect, but this isn't exactly a graduate level physics class at Princeton either.
