att rich

first off sorry about posting in the wrong forum, but i wanted an answer from you, and not the rest of the world.

could you please explain the difference between cdma and wcdma. its an ongoing argument in several forums. it is my understanding that the two are similar. however wcdma is an actual 3g format, whereas cdma is actually a 2.5g format. people seem to think that because verizon currenty usses cdma that they can do a simple upgrade to wcdma. if you wouldnt mind a clarification on this would appreciated.

ps again sory for the post in here. if you would like to post your response in general i'll lool there for it

A tiny little suggestion :-)


This site is such a great source of information and news within the wireless industry...

I was thinking maybe adding a "coming soon" type page for phones that are coming out for each carrier.

Example: T-Mobile (Nokia 6600, Treo 600, etc)
Verizon (Moto V710, etc)

It would be an easier way for customers to see whats on the horizon for their respective wireless carrier.

Just a thought...

Any opinions would be helpful... I like the 8900 but it just isnt loud enough. My g/f has the LG and hers is blasting I love it.. ring wise... but LG has no speakerphone I heard. I like the camera on both but the 8900 has a much crisp and clearer screen. I know the 8900 has 128 Flash memory which I dont know what the LG6000 has. Which phone has more memory for storing ringtones and pictures. I hear the 8900 has better reception... but then i hear the LG has better.. but more dropped calls. Just wondering if anyone can list some really really good things about each phone... and some really really really bad things about each phone.. its important.. i only have 10 days left to return the AUdiovox 8900. thanks

Rich - Why no connection cards?

I have been coming to this site for information for a few months now - it's awesome. If I have one major complaint however it is that you don't include any information on PC connection cards. You cannot be in this industry without selling these. All of the carriers sell them and the industry is moving more and more toward data applications to go with the voice applications just like telecom went from providing local and long distance to data solutions. Where can I go for information on cards for comparisons, news, reviews, etc.?

Sony Erickson T306 Connectivity issues…

Please help!
I recently purchased a USB connectivity cable for my Erickson T306 cell phone. I installed the cable drivers, and installed the dialer software on a Windows XP machine. When I try to configure the modem with the dialer software, I don’t have a choice to select the cell phone as a modem source.
Hopefully someone out there has tried this because and knows what I’m talking about. If so please help. I’m trying to avoid getting a LAN line in my apartment.

Feel free to email me direct

And in Related News... (new site feature)

New site feature:

I've just added a new tab on the news pages: Related News. It's pretty simple - just a list of the 10 most relevant, related news items in the archives.

It's automated, of course, so it won't always be perfect, but in a lot of cases it provides some interesting history/background info.

For example, the page for the recent Dobson / SmartSkin item: »

...shows related news about Dobson, Curitel, and Wildseed.

Feedback appreciated, as always! Smile

Hey Rich...

I was wondering why I can't find any mention of the Samsung P730 on this website... they featured it at CeBIT, and the Samsung rep told my master agent recently that they intend to release it in the US with T-Mobile. Am I just missing it somewhere?

Phone pics are not showing at all throughout the website.

It probably is my browser as I am at work and am on an Intranet. Just checking to see if there is anything I can do to fix it from here. The pics were showing about a week and a half ago, but now no phone pics are showing..just a little x in a blank box for all the pictures..Thanks for any info

Server / Speed Improvement

I've just made some changes that I hope will improve the site performance significantly. Smile I know things have been kind of slow lately during peak hours (mid-day). Sorry about that. Hopefully this will help.

The change was rather major, so please let me know if you notice any glitches.

Also, please let me know if things seem faster over the next few days.
