Direct Connect Call Alert Suggestion
I propose call alerts send a standard SMS text message that will go through even if the other party is on a phone call. Sprint used to do that with its picture mail service. Although it wasn't possible to view the picture while on an active call, you at least knew you had one.
I believe this would be a useful feature. I liked it on my old ic602.
While otherwise extremely nice phones, both Torques had these deal-breaker issues:
1) In speakerphone mode, I can hear other caller fine, they can't hear me unless I take it out of speakerphone mode & hold phone to my head.
2) Both phones randomly froze up and/or rebooted themselves out of the blue. Two phones, four days, total of eight lockups/random self-reboots.
Took to Sprint store, tech tried for an hour, gave up and swapped them for two brand new Torques. Guess what? Both of the new phones have the exact same defect: Microphone does not work properly when on a regular voice call in speakerphone mode....
Forum tools and their useless advice
I finally changed to my current carrier and couldn't be happier! Everyone should listen to me even though you don't know who I am or if I ever even had the service I claimed to.
In fact, I'm probably some spoiled teenager who stumbled across this forum by accident. My only objective in life is to own the latest and coolest phone while trashing on others I deem less worthy. I measure the success of a company by how much money they make and Internet forums rather than on what well-established consumer agencies re...
Is this legal?

Hey All (Used to be Nextel18)
Just wanted to say hey to everyone.
I went to AT&T for a few years and now I’m at T-Mobile USA.

Sprint Direct Connect + Airave
When we have our Airave turned on, the signal bars for CDMA voice definitely improve, but with the Airave on, Direct Connect basically goes out the window.
With Airave on, DC almost immediately shuts off on both of our phones (Kyocera Torques), it takes power-cycling of the phones to get them to re-establish DC, then after several seconds both phones shut off DC again. Since the DC is important to us, we have ended up just shutting the Airave off, which is bad for signal strength, but at least the DC works most of the time with the Airave off. On the data side, our DSL WiFi router handles the data part of i...
AT&T continues its march on SDC: NextMail-like apps
Today AT&T announced "pdvConnect" with a suite of features & capabilities that sound just like Nextel's NextMail offerings. I'm guessing since AT&T calls it "pdvConnect" that they have also contracted with Pacific Data Vision ("PDV") to provide these same services for AT&T users.

Upping the Heat on iDEN subs: $20/line/mo
Also, if the remaining Nextel & PowerSource lines are not switched over BEFORE the June 30 service cutoff, those customers will lose their Nextel and/or PowerSource phone numbers for good.
I could live with the original $10/line/mo, but $20 per line has finally done the trick for me. I'll have to stop by the local Sprint & ATT stores and do a serious cmparison.
Sprint's JD Power ranking drops, ATT now # 2
Thanks in advance.
1. Clearwire shareholders
2. Dish Networks
Too bad Sprint decided to let all that spectrum go to Clearwire in the first place. Looks like it will really cost Sprint to get it back now, if they even can.

Salary info for Management Positions
What is a starting Salary for these positions. Commission, bonus plans, etc?
I am currently looking in the Chicago, Las Vegas and San Diego areas.
In addition to the Salary what does the process look like with interviewing, time frames and what not.
How is working for the company, benefits relocation expenses.
Any information would be very helpful. Thank you in advance. (I also understand privacy in this matter as well.)
Data speeds effected by interference ?
Wondering if anyone has some information or knowledge on this question. Can you data speeds on your smartphone be effected by inference such as CB radios, and other mobile devices in large numbers.
I work at a site with about 2500 employees during the day, speeds are a hit and miss in the day. At night they are fast and consistent. I know capacity has a lot to do with that as well, but thought about all the people who also have mobile devices running on other carriers. Not to mention, wifi throughout the site in many building and floors.
Thank you for anyone's input.
Kudos to Sprint on the Sonim XP Strike
At last, a glimmer of hope that Sprint is taking more seriously the Nextel vanguard. Good news indeed.
Sprint's "Loyalty Rewards" for Nextel customers
I received a letter dated Nov. 19, 2012 stating that effective Jan. 1, 2013, as a Nextel iDEN customer I will be PENALIZED an ADDITIONAL $10/line/month unless I switch to Sprint CDMA service before Jan 1st.
Rather than just let the Nextel iDEN customers go right up to the June 2013 cutoff, because iDEN's performance warrants it in many areas, and rather than offering greater incentives to switch to Sprint CDMA, they are actually PENALIZING Nextel and PowerSource customers in an attempt to get them to switch before June.
I am so gratified that Sprint has chosen to honor my 10+ years of on-time, postpaid loyalty as a Nextel customer by penalizing me to the tune of ...
