Bold 9900 delayed cause ATT is a CONTROL FREAK! ... »

One of the major reasons for the 9900 being delayed on AT&T is an ongoing debate between RIM and AT&T around the NFC implementation on the device. In the NFC world, the key component is the Secure Element (SE) and it holds the secure credentials (for e.g. the credit card number in case of NFC payments). The Issuer Security Domain controls the access to SE in terms of writing on to it. RIM is promoting a concept where they would hold the ISD, so RIM can roll out customized NFC services while AT&T wants ISD control on the devices that they roll out (this is in relation to the larger ISIS NFC payment project that they are a part of).

AT&T Nexus Prime Rumors? Will It Be Replacing The Infuse?

Has anyone heard any new/semi credible rumors about the nexus prime on AT&T?

With it's screen size and list of features it would be the ideal replacement/upgrade for the infuse.

International Roaming.

My contract just ended with verizon. I will be going over-seas for school on and off for 4-6 months at a time (Semester, break, semester, break etc). in Grenada.

Verizon has a notification on their website that says: Verizon Wireless will terminate your service for good cause if less than half of your voice or data usage over three consecutive billing cycles is on the Verizon Wireless National Enhanced Services Rate and Coverage Area.

Does that mean that verizon would NOT be a good choice for me to stay with. Is AT&T the same way? I don't want to rent a phone or get pre-paid international service if i can avoid it.

Any input?

Galaxy S II Accessories That Come With It In The Box - South Texas Region Availability

Good day all,

The infuse comes with an HDMI adapter, earbuds, a two gig card, data cable and 3.5 inch adapter.

What does the galaxy sII come with?

Am I going to have to buy each item separately?

Also I am here in the austin texas area and none of the corporate stores, at&t dealers, walmarts, targets or radio shacks have received theirs yet.

I keep getting told there is a email memo that for the first two weeks it's an online exclusive for at&t.

Every store I go into can only order it online and have it shipped to me but the wait to have it shipped is five to eight days.

Because of the security bug has the mass release to the stores been delayed?

Galaxy S2 or Blackberry Torch 9810???

Switched back to AT&T a few weeks ago and currently using the Torch 9810, which is an excellent device. I've had it for a little less than a week. I really like it...super fast...great web is great and I LOVE the blinking LED indicating message or missed call this is something I was told that the Galaxy does not have.

The main thing I like about the galaxy is the FM radio, but that is not a deal sealer or killer.

The BB battery is excellent, while using Wifi and BT. The size is also great as is the full keyboard.

I guess in the end it will be personal preference, but I may be missing something so I’d love to get some feedback form anyone with experience with either device.

Oh, I am getting the Samsung to...

Making calls via WiFi, if no cell service available??? Galaxy S2?

Prior to switching to AT&T I had the HTC EVO with Sprint. If there was no cell signal I was able to make phone calls if I could get on WiFi. This was a great feature. What is this called?

Is the new Galaxy S2 capable of doing this?

AT&T Customers Report Wireless Problems

An unspecified problem put cell phone towers out of service Saturday evening, leaving some AT&T customers without wireless service.

Most of AT&T's wireless network was believed to be working again early Sunday morning. Late Saturday, AT&T tweeted about the issue and said crews were working to restore service.

"Los Angeles area AT&T customers may have issues with wireless service," the company said in a statement. "We are working now to resolve. We apologize for any inconvenience."

Shortcut to personal NBI account?

I naively added a new phone to my personal AT&T Family Plan, not realizing the hell I would encounter trying to port a number from a different market for the new phone.

Reading posts on this site and others, it seems that NBI is the solution, but that a wide rollout of NBI for consumers has been stalled for years. It seems some customers have had luck cajoling their way into business NBI accounts so they could mix numbers from different markets, and some subset of those have then been able to convert back to personal NBI so that they could regain OLAM, or add a FAN, etc.

I'm wondering if there is any shortcut through this maze of semi-deceit, whereby I could find some department at AT&T willing to convert me directly to a personal NBI ...
