Droid or Atrix?

Brief rundown:

I own a Lapdock for my old Motorola ARTIX 4G and love it because my phone could keep perpetually charged battery.

Now I need a new phone.

I will have to find an accessory for lapdock compatibility, and I know they are out there somewhere.

What is best?
B.) Atrix HD
C.) Droid RAZR HD
D.) Something else and please be specific.

I can use any service provider.

I understand the Webtop might not be available, but that is okay if the phone runs being mirrored.

Sony Xperia Z Review and How to Play Blu-ray Movies on Xperia Z

We're barely a few days into 2013 but that hasn't stopped smartphones from being announced. Sony is one of the first off the block with Xperia Z, the company's new flagship Android phone. With the hope to change its poor position on smartphone world and place itself amongst the stars, Sony is with all its forces to make Xperia Z a wonder in 2013 and even make it stack up against with the established kings of Google's castle like Galaxy S3, HTC One X. So how does this latest flagship Android device compare to its peers? Take a gander at my review.

Announced at CES 2013, this new handset takes over the role of its predecessor Xperia T and meanwhile it is toting an impressive set of specs. Now let us go in for a closer look.

Seeking dumb phone as data gateway for multiple devices

Dear Phone Scoop Forum Members.

After much reading, I don't find a clear solution. I know how to tether a PC through a dumb phone, using Bluetooth DUN. Or tether a tablet through a smart phone using either WiFi or BT-PAN.

But what if I want my tablet to connect through a dumb phone? The dumb phone would be for calls. The tablet for browsing.

Imagine I have the tablet.
And want to buy a rugged simple dumb phone, and plan, for calling and data.
I'm willing to pay for a tethering plan... cost is not the object, ease of setup is.
What models, plans (in the USA), and settings are needed?

Keywords: feature phone, WiFi tethering, Bluetooth DUN, BT-PAN.

Call quality using GrooVe IP, TalkaTone, NetTALK, etc on a smartphone

I've seen articles about using VOIP apps on a smartphone when connected to wifi to save on voice minutes. But is the call quality anywhere as good as using the normal cell tower? I'd like to know before I get a prepaid plan with low voice minutes.

Phone cloning

I havn't been in the cell phone industry in about 2 years but is their a new type of cell phone cloning? Back in the day it was copying one phones esn or imei or sim card information onto another device so the network thought the 2nd phone was the first.
But I had a lady call in to me yesterday saying her smartphone had been cloned and they now had copied all the information in it and could listen to everything she said.
Does this actually happen or is this lady of the aluminum foil hat variety?

Moving from USA to Europe. No service now. Advice?


Currently, I do not have a mobile service provider nor a mobile phone number. I do have a mobile phone though, an unlocked quad-band GSM phone. In a few months, I will be moving from the US to Europe. Occasionally I will return to the US to visit.

In the meantime, I am searching for a US mobile service plan. Whichever US plan I choose, I want to keep its phone number when I move to Europe so that I can use it when I return to the US. But I also do not want to pay a lot of money just to keep the US phone number.

So, my questions are:

1.) Which US mobile service plan fits my needs best?

My estimated monthly talk time is 150 minutes. Light data usage is required (directions, web browsing, etc). I would prefer to pay approxima...
