Other Options

I am due for my contract to end on Verizon this coming Summer. I am on the Unlimited plan right now obviously aware that they're doing away with the Unlimited plan or have done away with it. I am thinking of switching carriers and was toying around with the possibility of switching to T-Mobile or Sprint. Can anyone give me some info in terms of how good they are and whether or not its worth making the switch?

Lumia Commercial

I'm tired of seeing the newest Lumia 900 commercial with this girl named Megan Landry. This is total disrespect to Dallas(At&t headquarters) legend Tom Landry. Who wants to be associated with slick navigation tiles from Microsoft and Nokia.. not I!

FRUSTRATION with Sprint -- Who has the BEST direct connect now?

My elderly mother depends on her direct connect to contact me (her only care-giver).

It is unreliable now in the Washington, D.C. area. When I called Sprint customer service, they didn't have much advice, other than to switch to another phone with a two-year agreement and slower (yes, his word) direct connect.

Who has the best direct connect in the cellular world? I need a phone with direct connect that my 80-year-old mother can easily use (we have the ic502 now). I may have to change carriers and phones.

Any thoughts?


PS: Here is my letter to Sprint CEO (so far, no response):

CEO Dan Hesse
Sprint Nextel Corp.
6200 Sprint Parkway
Overland Park, KS 66251

Dear Mr. Hesse,

Forward attachements

Is there a smart phone that allows you to simply forward attachments?
At home I, on my PC, I hit forward and all the attachements go.
On my Droid, I need to download the attachemnt(s) and them email from there. Would also have to copy original message to send with it.
So when I get an email (with a word doc, excel doc, pic, adobe file, etc.) I want to hit forward and send that attachment(s) with original message.

New Verizon commercial is a ripoff of an old SNL skit

The one where the guys are playing basketball and the words "bad idea" flash on the screen after they say something. Saturday Night Live had a skit back in the '80's for bad idea jeans that was almost exactly the same. Really guys, SNL should sue you for such blatant plagarism.

Old PDA/Phone w/ wireless but no data plan?

I want to buy an old PDA/Phone to use wirelessly on the internet but not buy one of Verizon's "data plans. Is this possible? Some blogs seem to say yes and others say no : - (

I have a list of phones which are supposed to doi this but apparently Verizon changed their policy sometime in 2010 which affects these phone's ability to use wireless but not a data plan.

Palm Centro
Palm Treo 700(w)((x)
Motorola Moto Q9C
Smt 5800
Sch i760
XV 6900 (Htc Touch)
htc xv6700
Motorola Q
Samsung SCH-i760

Can anybody verify whether this "data plan" stuff is now the case or if these phones are grandfathered into now having to get a plan?

Can anyone recommend a good company through which to get insurance for a smartphone? A lot of the insurance companies that offer homeowner's/renter's insurance will no longer offer coverage for smartphones/cellphones.

Why Android books and magazines UK based?

Can someone please explain to me why all the magazines and books in US bookstores on the Android platform or Android apps are UK based (pricing is all or mostly in pounds, addresses for subscription services are in UK, etc.,)? Android is via Google, an American company, thus I don't get why pretty much all (OK, I found 1 written and published in the US) of the magazines and books coming out of the UK. All input helpful and welcome.

Also, I have asked this before with no response so another try... Can anyone recommend a good book or magazine to pick up for someone who is new to the Android platform (first smartphone so the learning curve is feeling a little steep)?

Need help with new phone

Hi everyone,

I really don't know where to go or what to look for. My life is pretty chaotic anyways.

Yesterday, while getting the groceries from my car in my apartment building (I guess) some kid saw my iphone3Gs and grabbed it. I really don't know what to get because my I liked the phone but the $111.xx w/e a month I couldn't really afford.

Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Please help.


I am in the BA/SF
