How to search for weight data for a large number of phones

New to the site. Great info.

Doing a development project and wondering if there is a simple way to get the weights of a large number of phones by, say, their engineering number or other unique identifier?

What formats for this information are available?

If you’ve been enjoying that Nuketown 2025 map that you got as a part of your pre-order of Call of Duty: Black Ops II, then I might have some bad news for you.

Treyarch game design director David Vonderhaar announced the following a short time ago on Twitter:

Double XP weekend is official over. That means Nuketown 2025 / 24-7 is as well. I know. RIGHT? Don’t kill the messenger. Nuketown 2025 / 24-7 will be back for special events. You can always play it with your friends in Custom Games.

So, as of now—and as far as I understand it, so feel free to correc...

Losing the war on social commentary.

Ingraham’s staff made a similar argument on her blog. “Are the defeats the fault of the GOP and its candidates, and do they now need to pander to minorities and update their platform to make it more appealing?” they wrote. “What exactly is wrong with conservative principles? Anything? No. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. We don’t need to change to appeal to voters. We need voters and their mindsets to change.”

Behind the right’s retrenchment is a belief that they shouldn’t “pander” to those demographic groups that voted heavily for Obama simply because, some of those on the right claim, many of the president’s supporters were drawn by the promise of continued government handouts.

Can we have signatures or no?

I was wondering if we could set our screenames to have signatures? Or will this ever happen?

This may be because of my companies firewalls, but in the forums section, if you select "More Carriers" or "More Manufactuers" it doesn't do anything.

"More OS's" however does work.

The only way I can access other carriers or other manufactuers from the site is being going into either Carriers Link or OSes link and selecting them there.

Is anyone else having this issue?

Search feature on Phonescoop

I've been accessing this site from my iPhone 4S without iOS6 and everytime I try to enter something in the search section of the site my virtual keyboard disappears and won't let me continue. Idk if this is just my device or others but just wanted to let you know.

Phonescoop Opinions

I know you guys pride yourselves on objectivity, but I would enjoy the occasional opinion piece on phone-related news. Especially now, with the back & forth litigation with Apple and Samsung.

Have you ever considered having that kind of section?

Search by LTE band

I accidentally posted this in the general forum too Embarassed

Right now, there is only a check box in the phone finder for LTE. The problem is, LTE has different bands. It would be nice if we could expand the LTE search option to select different bands the phone must have.

Example, I want a phone that works on T-Mobile USA (LTE Band 4) and western Europe (LTE Band 7, mostly). If the phone can't do both, I don't want it.

Tax penalty to hit nearly 6M uninsured people
By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR, Associated Press – 11 hours ago
WASHINGTON (AP) — Nearly 6 million Americans — significantly more than first estimated— will face a tax penalty under President Barack Obama's health overhaul for not getting insurance, congressional analysts said Wednesday. Most would be in the middle class.

The new estimate amounts to an inconvenient fact for the administration, a reminder of what critics see as broken promises.
And the budget office analysis found that nearly 80 percent of those who'll face the penalty would be making up to or less than five times the fede

Little misunderstanding

I just got a warning for spam for my thread " Scope this video. Save money on your power bill."

That was a political video and wasn't intended as spam (just a misleading title)

Did you even watch the video, or did you just see the link and mark it as spam?
I was hoping you could reconsider my warning. Not that I plan on getting more, but accidents happen.

Where do you see the future of wireless going?

i see everything condensed into the "phone" id, credit cards,money,paper,keys

You walk up to your car,press a button and it unlocks then plug it into the charger port and it starts.

You walk up to your house enter a code on the phone or press a button and it unlocks the house..

then instead of flipping a switch you press a button and the lights come on and then turn the tv on and start flipping thru channels using your phone

and then the fridge hands you a beer.. Paranoid

what's your opinion on the future?

This may be an odd place to post this,

but I wanted to see if you had more info about something. I've been seeing a lot of reports that Samsung is re-patching the universal search into the international SIII, and I was wondering if you've heard anything similar for the US. I would assume that their recent blow from the US courts would be a barrier to this.

If not, would you happen to have a recommendation for a third party application that would offer similar functionality? Razz

Galaxy SIII reviews question.

For the t-mobile/AT&T variant you reported the battery life as easily clearing 2 days, while the Sprint SIII you estimated to have 30 hours at the most.

Was there a typo somewhere on either review or is there really that substantial of a difference between the two?

Request for Ban of Account

Rich and whomever else runs this site. I have requested in a few places that my account be banned and if possible that you delete all my posts. I am upset that a reply to a post was deleted but more so that you guys sent me an email accusing me of violating the terms of service which IS an outright lie. I made no personal attack against an individual, but rather laughed at the idea that Verizon cares about saving a user money. They don't. That's a fact. Company culture IS: "We are not the cheap carrier nor do we wish to be." I know that first hand from round table discussions sales meetings, sales rallies etc... For you guys to allow a user who only created an account on 7/17/2011 to cause my post to be deleted and THEN to lodge that...
