Re: New IOS question
Sep 19, 2013, 12:28 PM
in the Article: Review: Apple iOS 7 from A to Z forum

Short answer, no. All that did before was remove it from multi task menu, not close it down. The way iOS works is that once an app is not in the forground and is left and then pushed to the background, it has to suspend. The exception is media apps but those you are probably listening to anyway. Honestly, if closing those out as you do had any real consequence, you'd lose the ability to get calls or messages. ...

Why aren't they releasing phones for every carrier???? They seem to shoot themselves in the foot at every move. Many people would love a Nokia phone, but they aren't smart enough to put it in wide release. They need to be taking ques from Samsung and not Apple with this exclusive BS...

Jayshmay said: SE really isn't all that different from Nokia, their high-end handsets don't ever, ever reach the U.S. because they do not do cdma variants and they always seem to to approach at&t first and at&t says make it cheaper and both companies say no. so at&t says, we'll take all this stuff over here out and add this to it, and they both say no. i truly think at&t is the reason both cmopanies aren't bigger here than they ...

I've been using the phone for a few days now and I don't mind the orientation not changing when the keyboard comes out or the phone is rotated. I have the evo now and lock the orientation to portrait anyway. The only real gripe I have about it not changing is in market search.... I'm not sure it's a design flaw (other than market) but I think the phone flows better and works better in portrait mode. Overall, I'm ...

You do not need a task killer. Just because it shows that it's in the background doesn't mean it is using any cpu. Android is not like windows or osx, it loads everything it can to memory waiting to be called up. That's a very big misconception with android... here is one of the best write ups on the issue... http://m.lifehacker.com/5650894/android-t ask-killers-explained-what-they-do-and-why-yo u-shouldnt-use-them

My files aren't .wav files, they are WMA files. ...

dialing a call takes 10-20 seconds to process and answering a call takes longer than it did before the update. random stalls when hitting the home button... just about most of the issues i think is with sense because the past few days i put launcher pro on and only the dialing and answering calls is stalling.

I know a bad experience sticks with you, but I left at&t over a year ago and have been with Sprint since then. They have a 30 day no questions asked return policy and will refund everything to including phone cost, bill and activation. They aren't the same company they used to be. I will say with my past experiences with at&t you'll be getting this same run around forever. If Sprint isn't an option, there is always Verizon. ...

Ability to use video chat and unlimited bandwidth... no matter if you are on 3G or 4G... and while the phone has Sprint apps on it, you are free to do what you wish... if you do not want to pay the additional $30.00 a month for the Sprint Hotspot, they (as of now) are not going to block those services... also, to help build out the 4G network... THAT is what the additional $10.00 a month is for.

in the Article: Sprint HTC Evo 4G Updated With Slight Improvements forum

after the fiasco of the HTC Hero, I've lost faith in HTC to do the right thing... After putting off the 2.1 update forever the update made most Hero's worse! HTC puts out a ton of phones, they just need to put a little more effort into keeping up the support for those phones. I do find it funny that dumb a$$es blame the carrier when a phone doesn't act right, and clearly it's a phone issue....

After billions paid out by Microsoft, it's funny that Apple is getting away with everything MS has had to pay up on...

a company of this size and with this much clout in ip/internet should not have these types of problems. i guess it just goes to show what type of company it is under ralph de la vega. ignorant. randall needs to get rid of him and get a real ceo in there.

honestly, you have a 50-50 percent chance of a refurb having problems. just like you are having with a new phone. 50-50... i don't know why people have problems with refurbed equipment. they only reason you are getting a refurb is because something was wrong with the NEW phone you got. and don't blame sprint, blame the manufacture. and that goes for ALL wireless carriers.

Maybe. But we still allow our senators and representatives to serve in Washington and decriminalize lobbies. Funny how you can offer a politician X amount of money for something and be a lobbyist but offer a judge the same thing and it's called bribery. Get ALL the crooks out of there. Democrat and Republican.
