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?

Hi,

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...

Hi Eric or Phone Scoop,

My question: Are you planning to review the Moto Razor Maxx HD? And if so when?

I understand it MAY be released on 10-18-12 but I thought maybe you guys got one early for testing.

He muzzled Cam Newton also, the Carolina Panthers on the opener

Tampa keyed on Newton from beginning to finish, getting away Carolina's major weapon. It's a not-too-surprising approach notable while in the school ranks, whereby just about the most talented participant about the industry will take greater than game titles.

Schiano authored weekly one match system geared towards getting absent Newton's gifts within the ground, and he did the Authentic Carolina Panthers Jerseys identical Sunday with Jamaal Charles, the Chiefs' managing again who potential customers the NFL in dashing and may perhaps be the only real play-maker Kansas Metropolis can lean on this season.

The Chiefs utilised Charles to consume up yardage and minutes towards the Baltimore Ravens two months ago, but the Bucs -- expecting ...

Siri and Other Speech Recognition Apps

My question is this; where are all the complainers who chided Nextel users for having speakerphone conversations in public? At least we are speaking to real people instead of an app!

I also would like to know why these same folk think it is easier to text than Direct Connect? Does not using an app like Siri defeat that rationale?

Search by LTE band

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.

Are there any new decent smartphones that can be purchased without the upgrade feature for around $100?

Thanks in advance.

How to Choose a Business VoIP System

I was wondering if anyone here had any experience with choosing a voip system for a mid-sized (~20 employees) office. I feel like there's way too many options out there... for example, a colleague recommended this one:

but I want to explore different options before making a decision. What are you typically supposed to look for when you choose a VoIP system for business? Thanks in advance!

Need a phone with easy-to-read screen text & icons

I'm having a devil of a time finding info on this, so if anyone can point me to another discussion thread here or info/resources anywhere on the Web I'll be grateful!

I need to get a new cell phone for use in North America only. I have a hard time making out the tiny icons which are used for most cell phones' home screens & menus, & I also want to use large text for built-in functions & displays. For example, instead of most of a "contacts" screen being given over to borders, unused fields & an image placeholder for a photo I'll never use, I'd like to display just the name & other info I actually have in 12 pt. or larger text. Or, when the screen displays an incoming call, I'd like the text to be 18 pt. or so. Extra credit & cookies i...

Motorla Droid 4 vs Samsung Galaxy S 3

I recentl upgraded to my first ever smartphone, and I chose the Motorla Droid 4 because of the QWERTY keyboard. I still love the keyboard and don't really mind the size, but...

I have heard the new Samsung Galaxy s 3 which comes out for Verizon on the tenth is a NICE phone. Same price. I am not altogether pleased with my current phone's camera (white balance seems awful, rather grainy video, battery life is terrible...

The Galaxy s 3 may not have much better battery life but the review here was SO high. While I still am within my 14 days, I am considering exchanging the Droid 4 for it. But that qwerty keyboard makes me feel like I have a teeny little cool computer! And I think I may miss it.

Anyone have any opinions? Is the samsung ...

Verizon's lemonade stand commercials

My question: what s--- for brains numbskull came up with these? A little girl turns a front yard lemonade stand into a billion dollar enterprise in one day?

Whoever came up with this moronic idea should be featured in their "bad idea" SNL ripoff commercials.

Best/Fastest way to charge devices

So...A Little Confused

Embarassed

I know what 4G LTE is from Verizon and I keep hearing that other carries have ramped up 3G that they're calling 4G but am really confused as to what T-Mobile and Sprint offers from their service and their network. Sorry I know I've posted before but am swaying towards T-Mobile here since Verizon got rid of their Unlimited Data and I feel as though they may be the better option out of Sprint but if someone can explain the difference between the 2 carries technologies I'd appreciate it

Thanks

Does anyone rate a phone's volume at the earpiece?

I could not find this in a discussion thread, point me to it if I missed it.

Issue: how do I find a phone that has a loud volume at the earpiece (is that the right term for the small speaker you listen through when not on speaker phone mode?).

You can't judge this at the store very well, most display phones won't dial out so you can hear it while talking to someone.

This is for someone who is not deaf or hard of hearing, just older and outside a lot.

How do I find how loud a phone is when you listen to it pressed to your ear?
