Throttle or not to Trottle?

This article has me a bit concerned that the current decision makers at ATT do not have the ability to make a solid commitment to it's customers. Longtime customers with unlimited plans being throttled before they reach 3gigs and keeping them throttled until the next billing cycle is a very poor decision on their part. They would do better to adopt TMO's upfront cap of 5gigs and and Verizon's temporary throttling depending on tower usage. »

To those anticipating the 4G iPhone

4G means fourth-generation, as in the fourth incarnation of the iPhone. It does not mean that the phone will run off of a 4G network; in fact, the 4G iPhone will be 3G only.

That will be all.

Does Anyone Know Why AT&T Has Deactivated The FM Radio On The Galaxy S II

I love my new phone.
It does everything I need and more.

When I ordered the sales rep was pushing the fact it had an regular and HD FM Radio( We have alot of HD radio stations here in the Austin-San Antonio area)that other smart phones and regular phones did not have.

But when I received it and started exploring the different functions the FM radio option has been deactiaved.

Does anyone know if this is going to be addressed in a future software upgrade?

Also the one other thing that made me mad was AT&T made me change get rid of my unlimited text, multimedia and data plan I have had for the past five years!

It was originally called just the unlimited everything then they added non smart phone to it. The sales rep told me I...

LG Windows Quantum phone working with Ford Sync

Last April I reported to LG on their forum that I was having an issue with the phone disconnecting from sync. I am still waiting for a fix for that, has any other LG window User have the same issue? I have no problems with phonebook downloading, text messaging reading through sync that all works fine although I see posts on this forum of others not so lucky but I would just like it not to drop off.
One problem I do have currently is the LG is listed as the primary phone and sometimes Sync will connect another non LG smart phone instead even though both are in truck next to each other. AT&T and Ford Sync both say it is the phone all updates have been done on both the phone and the Sync which changed nothing sorry to say.

On my 2nd HTC TITAN...need HELP!

I used my Upgrade to get an HTC TITAN & got a great deal at just a .01! However, I've already returned the first one and I'm about to return this replacement I received due to the call quality/people complaining about me being muffled and/or having to repeat myself 2-3 times. I don't want to get another TITAN, would love to get an LG Nitro or HTC Vivid, but can't really afford the high price tag. Anyone have any tips on how to "Work" Customer Service to convince them to give me a great deal (if not for free) on one of the other phones - since I've had so much trouble?

Text messaging and call restrictions

I'm trying to find out how do they work in AT&T, and what the conditions were. Sprint has pretty simple steps, but I've heard that for this carrier it's more complicated.

AT&T drops T-Mo bid

From the Washington Post:

AT&T says it is ending its $39 billion bid to buy T-Mobile USA after facing fierce government objections.

The cellphone giant said Monday that the actions of the government to block the deal do not change the challenges of the wireless phone industry, which it says requires more airwaves to expand.

AT&T’s purchase of T-Mobile from Deutsche Telekom of Germany would have made it the largest cellphone company in the U.S. AT&T is currently the country’s second-largest wireless carrier, while T-Mobile is the fourth-largest.

The Justice Department sued to block the merger on Aug. 31, saying it would reduce competition and lead to higher prices.

Last month, the companies withdrew their application to the...

Upcoming Non Smart Phone Touch Screen Phones

Hello everyone,

I have two family members on my account that need a new phone.

They prefer a good sized touch screen phone.

The only ones that seems to appeal to them are the HTC freestyle, LG Encore and a few pantech phones.

Does anyone know if there are going to be any phones from samsung, HTC or LG soon?

at&t control

I would have to say for such a large company how can they not make sure we can get service anywhere. I was at Museum of Sci n Indus. in Chicago-t-mobile worked, sprint, nextel worked not att. I have lived through all there changes and blending of services etc when they bought Cingular. When they going to stop the control issue with downloads, sideloads etc... just give us the best fastest most reliable service.
I will say they have been great to work with on customer service-I know dont say it yes att&t customer service is great-yes with me they have been. Cell plans should get cheaper overall I know wishful thinking. Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

Galaxy S2 owners...

Every time I set up the "buddies now" widget with contacts, they are removed within a day. The widget stays on my home screen, but the contact I assigned to it is removed. So the next day I have all these buddies now widgets that don't have any contacts assigned. I was curious to know if anybody else is having this issue, and if anybody knows what I can do to fix it. Thanks.
