Why doesn't (as great a site as it is) have an accesories section? That'd be awesome. I guess there are just too many to review?

One More Suggestion (Coverage Maps)

I was wondering if it was possible to put the carriers separate coverage maps on this site as well. Possibly interactive as well. The location i currently work at is limited to and So it would be valuable to me to be able to see each separate carriers map. Links to the carriers website are great but in my situation im unable to view them.
Thanks for the quick responses,

Ability to make Polls

I would like this site to have the ability to make polls. I would like to be able ask a multiple choice question and have each user be able to answer once. Mostly to find people opinions in a percentage base.

The "Free iPod" thing...

For the record, any messages promoting "Free iPods", or any similar schemes, are strictly prohibited by the Terms of Use.

The relevant clause is:

You may NOT:

Although the free iPod stuff isn't necessarily a scam or spam, it is most definitely a pyramid scheme, which has always been prohibited, as long as this site has had a Terms of Use.

So if you've posted such a message and had it deleted, that is why.

I noticed there is not a link to Cellular South. I know they are big down here, but I know how big you have to be on this site. They offer unlimited plans for 49.99. Uses CDMA.

Edit option

I'm kind of new to this forum, but have been browsing and posting regularly since I joined. One major set back is not being able to edit a post that's already been posted...especially when simple mistakes are made and you just want to delete the post altogether.

Forgive me if this has already been posted...but since I don't see this...I'm guessing it hasn't. Thanks!

PS- This is a great website...keep up the awesome work Very Happy

Carrier positions

Im guessing Cingular got moved to the left/top of Verizon Wireless in the forums/carriers list due to the merger going through and it now being the largest wireless provider....but if thats the case, why is AT&T still listed 3rd?

I know its a dorky meaningless question, but i find it interesting.

Verizon Motorola V710 email client

Crying or Very sad

I came to Phone Scoop to investigate the v710 from Verizon. I was thrilled when I saw on your website that the v710 had an email client for POP3, IMAP and SMTP. It was part of the reason I ended up going with the V710 when we moved to Verizon.

After purchasing the v710, I found out that Verizon does not offer the email client with the phone (even though the rep said that it had the client on it). Even in Motorola's literature I haven't been able to find any mention of an email client.

Does someone have some inside info for me? I would love to be proven that my research was wrong.

Thanks, Skippy__1

QUESTION: Unlocking SIM on Nokia 6010 AT&T Wireless

Hi - My SIM card is locked on my Nokia 6010 from AT&T Wireless. I want to unlock it so I can download my phonebook to it. I tested the backup/download on a Samsung T-Mobile and a Nokia Voicestream, so I have narrowed it down to the SIM card in the phone. I don't need a phone unlocking code, just SIM unlocking.

I hope someone can help me!


Oct 16, 2004, 3:00 AM :: Feature Request (again)

Okay I thought of another one today that would be handy..

I'm probably like most people here in that, when waiting for a specific phone to come out or information on that phone, I troll it's message board.

It would be nice to have a list of the last several phones you visited somewhere below the logged in as prompt.

This way when I come back to the site to check on the phone of my choice, I can just click the link for it below previously visited phones... And not have to surf through the phone finder, or the phones feature.

This feature can easily be done with a couple cookies, or you could use PHP to stuff the MySQL DB with each visit.. but that seems silly, I mean why waste DB calls.

New Site Tweaks - phone specs

Some minor tweaks to the phone specs pages over the last couple days:
  1. Parts of the "camera" feature have now been split out separately - "video capture" and "video calling" are now their own features. So the "type" attribute for the camera feature is gone now, which previously indicated video capability.

  2. The "type" attribute also said whether the camera was built-in or attachable. The whole attachable-camera thing never really seemed to take off, so I've just removed that altogether. So phones that support attachable cameras now do not have the "camera" feature listed, and don't come up in Phone Finder. In other words, the "camera" feature now means "integrated camera".

  3. The new attribute for "camera" is "resoluti

Another feature request

This isn't really a major significant feature in and of itself really, but I think it could be helpful nonetheless.

You guys do a great job getting images of the phones--especially those all important angles when you're allowed (and either given the time or the images themselves).

What I would like to request is one additional shot of the phone (like the initial face-forward shot) that has another phone or even a ruler or some identifiable object that could provide people with some context as to how big the phone REALLY is. Yes, I know you do a fantastic job providing measurements on each phone as it is released, but for some people, that just NEVER translates into what the phone looks like size-wise (me being one of them).

To have ...

Oct 15, 2004, 12:22 AM Feature Request

I think this website is very well done, and I have been around long enough to see developments of the site.. but something I'd like to see is a per phone feature that works similar to the "Compare vs..." link.

Instead of my having to know what phones have what, I'd like to be able to click a button while browsing a given phone, and find all other phones that have similar features..

This should be a fairly simple tie in to your Phone Finder funcationality.

So if I were looking at this phone, for example; 478

There would be a link right next to Compare vs... that would automatically pull up other phones with the same or similar features.

This would allow users to find other phone...

NOKIA 7260 General Price Information if any?

To whom this may concern:

I am considering purchasing a gift for a family member overseas in Romania and I as wondering how much or if you can offer me an estimated price of the NOKIA 7260? The purchase would be a birthday gift, and I need to know more or less how much the phone goes for as far as international prices are concerned? For example, how much would the phone be if I would convert dollars into euros? Can you provide me with a number for NOKIA as well? Please if anyone can provide me with the necessary pricing information I will appreciate it. Thank you for your time.
