Another issue is the absence of MHL and OTG.

WokeUpAsADonut, you are correct. Most of us on this forum are not average users. We are professionals and we require more than an average user does.

Out of the "major" banking apps, US Bank, Citibank, Discover, American Express, Bank of the West. Out of the other apps, Toyota Entune app for their Entune in-dash information and entertainment system is missing. As it stands now, there are 6 apps missing that I wish were there in order for me to make the switch to WP.

app availability is still rather limited compared to Android OS. I would love to buy a Nokia phone for a full retail price no questions asked but there are about 6 apps that I need that are not available for WP8 and that's what stops me.

Practically all Verizon stores have personnel who speak Spanish, either natively or otherwise. If you live in US, you are required to speak, understand, read and write English. Opening up stores that cater to a particular group of people based on their stereotypical shopping patterns is racist.

Good question. I wonder how many of these customers have their own homes and drive nice cars. But they "cannot afford" a cell phone.

in the Article: Apple iPhone Violates Motorola Wi-Fi Patent forum

There is absolutely nothing wrong with it. Patents are granted on a first-come, first-received basis. Motorola patented whichever Wi-Fi elements/technology it did before Apple did. Apple was late in applying and used the same technology in their phones and is now being sued by Motorola. Don't forget though that Motorola has been making telecommunication equipment decades before the prick named Steve Jobs was even born.

"In other words what I am saying is that the consumer market thinks RIM stuck too much to its roots!" RIM should have never entered the consumer market. The consumer versions of Blackberry are nothing but garbage with most consumers replacing them for an Android or some other device.

Switch to HTC Rezound. HTC provides unlock directions on their web site. Motorola Droid RAZR and Dropid RAZR Maxx suck because the battery is sealed inside and is not user replaceable.

in the Article: Verizon Says Locked Bootloaders Better for the Network forum

Sprint might not offer unlimited data for much longer either. Their network is running thin too. And besides, it's not up to the carrier to assist with unlocking bootloaders. It's between the user and the device manufacturer. I recently unlocked the bootloader on my HTC Rezound phone using the instructions on the HTC web site. Then I rooted the phone but the left the stock operating system on it because the after-market ROMs currently out are not yet enough to ...

You do not need an unlocked bootloader in order to install an after-market free tethering app and prevent Verizon from collecting any tethering fees.

in the Article: T-Mobile Offering All Smartphones for Free Feb 11 forum

People buy iPhones because they are fashion items much like Prada or Louis Vuitton purses. People buy Android-based phones because they value practicality and function over fashion. As for poor, you better check your facts before you bullshit. Both types of phones retail for $500 to $600 without contract and between $200 to $300 on contract, depending on the retailer.

T-Mobile's data network leaves a lot to be desired. I'd rather pay more but have coverage than save a few bucks and suffer horrendous or non-existent service. Just my 2 cents on the matter...

Actually Verizon's plans are pretty much average with other carriers but the service and coverage is better than others. They decided not to implement a fee so why is this even a subject of any discussion?

Apple cannot even come up with original names for it's ****ty products. iPhone and IOS were names used by other companies, both of whom sued Apple for infringement and eventually settled. HTC did not lose anything. They can still sell their excellent, unlike POS Apple, devices in the US. Apple simply sues others left and right because other companies whose products are far more superior to those of Apple are prohibiting the poor Apple to dominate in the US with ...

Actually, Apple doesn't have any of their own patents. Everything they claim they have, they stole from other companies. Apple is nothing but a pile of **** in the corner of the room and that **** is stinking up the air for others.

ITC is a bunch of old ****s who don't know ****! Apple has patents? Really? I can think of a few companies who had the same UI features that Apple is crying about way before Apple even conceived their iShit phones. Apple is a smelly turd that pollutes the air.

There is no law that states that transit agencies are required to provide cell phone service at stations and/or in tunnels along service routes. BART does it only as courtesy and convenience to riders. As such, it can choose to take away that courtesy and convenience as it deems necessary.

I already returned my Thunderbolt due to GPS issues. I use the GPS a lot, and for me, the 2200 meter accuracy was simply unacceptable. The accuracy would improve if Wifi radio was turned on, but the concept of having Wifi on to improve GPS reception and precision is ridiculous. Not to mention that battery would get drained in only half a day. And of course, Froyo is slow, buggy, and bloated.

If people are so worried about their privacy,

they should not be using apps and services that identify their location! Hell, they should not be using smart phones at all! But no, they want e-mail, and Facebook, and FourSquare, and Twitter, and restaurant/bar/club/store/movie theater/gas station locator and maps/driving directions/navigation all of which use location services and/or GPS in some way, shape or form.

Big freaking deal that 4G LTE was down for a day. It's not like it's available everywhere or a lot of people are using it. 3G was up and running normally. It's not like the whole network just went into 1x RTT mode for 24 hours.
