Verizon let me upgrade and remain on unlimited data.

Cool

After almost a year of terror, blackmail, extortion and torment I finally got an upgrade to the new iPhone and still kept unlimited. For almost a year I was met with resistance from Verizon COR reps telling me "you can't keep unlimited because it doesn't exist". This was always something that seemed nonsensical because of the fact that it obviously DOES exist because I have it. It may not be offered anymore, but denying it's existence is just insulting. You'd figure that the bean counters at the check mark would have come up with something g better.

That said, after several conversations with CS, one of them finally revealed that they have a 12 month "NEXT" type of program that allows one to split up the retail cost of the phone...

Do You Believe:One Bar of Power Is Left = Strong Radiation?

Have you heard the rumour that the cell phone had better not be used when there is only one bar of power left because the radiation in such a circumstance may be about 1000 times the intensity of that in normal circumstances. Do you believe that? Shocked

As a matter of fact, the radiation intensity of cell phones that usually mentioned by people means the transmit power. It has nothing to do with the dump energy, while it has something to do with the signal intensity of the cell phone. The signal intensity of the cell phone is controlled by base stations which receive signals from cell phones constantly. If the signal of a cell phone is too weak to maintain communication, the base station will issue instructions to intensify the radiati

Android VS iOS, which is better??

I am not sure if I am putting this in the correct forum, however I pose the question. To be totally honest I am a student majoring in computer science, and I happen to work for an indirect Verizon agent. Well for one of my classes I have to write a persuasive speech, hence the question. I didn't want to ask just anyone, but people who have actual knowledge on the topic. So any input one way or another would be great! And please, tell me why? Even if it is because it comes in a cool color is a valid reason. Thank you!

rice bag method for wet phone works?

Hi guys,
I read on this blog http://www.thephonetown.com that putting your wet phone in rice bag could save it from getting dead. Just want to know if any one has actually experienced it and does it work or not. If this doesn't work, then is there any other method to save a wet phone? Asking because I'm someone who keep dropping my phone in water.

Steps to Reset a Lithium Ion Cell Phone Battery

Lithium ion batteries are the power source of choice for cellphones. Lithium ion batteries are manufactured with a circuit that functions as a kind of fuel gauge. The circuit uses the battery voltage to estimate the "state-of-charge", that is, the amount of usable power remaining. Over time the circuit will become inaccurate and must be reset. Otherwise the cell phone may shut off unexpectedly even though readouts indicate the battery still has power remaining. Cool

1. Use the lithium ion battery installed in the cell phone until the battery power is completely consumed. This will not harm the lithium ion battery because it comes with an internal "safety board". Smile

2. Take the battery out of the cell phone and put it on a charger which...

Is Your Cell Phone Battery Dead?

Now the batteries of most cell phones are rechargeable lithium ion batteries. This type of battery can recharge 300 to 500 charge cycles to its full capacity before it will not charge fully. If your cell phone needs charging more often or the charge lasts for several hours less than when the battery was new, you may need to replace it with a new one. Testing the battery to obtain its capacity will tell you if you need a new cell phone battery. Rolling Eyes

1. Plug the cell phone into its charger and plug the other end in to an electrical outlet. Allow the cell phone battery to be charged to full capacity. Very Happy

2. Press and hold the power button on the cell phone to turn it off. Let the phone power down and remove the back cover to access the...

Need a recommendation

So, my father (almost 70) wants a new phone. Here are the limitations:

We don't want to have to get a data plan. So I'm looking to buy something used/unlocked. (we have AT&T.)

He wants something with a big enough screen to see pics of his granddaughter (and daughter).

It needs to have a keyboard big enough to see the keys and not fat-finger too much.

It needs good reception and reliability.

It would be nice if it's durable so it won't die if he bumps it or drops it in his workshop.

Battery time isn't a big deal as he only uses it when he's out and always charges it when he gets home.

Format isn't a big deal... flip, bar, etc. Doesn't matter.

So, does anyone have any suggestions?
