Sayno RL2500 to Verizon

I have had a cell phone for quite a long time. I have had Sprint and Verizon and like them both. I have also worked for both but it has been a while ago. I currently have Verizon because of there coverage. However like most others out there apparently I am not a huge fan of Verizon’s phones. I am not one of these people that are interested in a camera phone but instead want the best call quality possible as well as reception. What I very much want to do and do not really care how much money it takes to get it done is get the Sanyo SCP-5400/RL 2500 and or the SCP-5500 / VM4500 working on Verizons network. I do not need the two way feature and I don’t need the get it now stuff. All I want is my text messaging and voice mail and pho...

Text Messages

What prevents us from sending text messages to everyone that has signed up for text messaging without regard to carriers? (Much like the ability to call using a valid phone number.)

fast battery drain

help! I have a phone with a battery that drains pretty fast. i took it to the local sprint store and a tech told me that he tested the battery and it was fine. he then told me that i should leave the phone in the "sprint only" mode and this will help with fast battery drain? i know that phones use more power in analog but do they use the same amount of power in searching for service mode when set on "sprint only" and if so where can i find specs in writing that say so.

What’s Fuelling Japan’s 3G growth?

Interesting piece, very often the asian mobile data success story is shrowded in mystery and a lot of it is put down to "cultural differences", nice to see clear reasons for its success that the rest of us can learn from

If It Were'nt For Carrier Hype...

If it were not for carrier hype more people could grasp the concepts of "mode" versus "band"... or rather how mode and band relate to one another for our purposes... ****! I remember selling Bell Atlantic when they went digital... first they waffled as ATT deployed TDMA in their feeble attempt to address their capacity issues... Then BAM adopted CDMA (only after Sprint already made their commitment to Qualcom)It was then that "digital" was single band dual mode... but the phones were labeled "Digital"... These were single band dual mode phones... and the carrier labeled them digital... And so the the story goes that the necessity for the carriers through acquisition and/or merger to adopt multi-band multi-mode phone came to be... Subsequent...

Nokia: Bluetooth flaw gnaws at phone security

A bit of disturbing news.

"Nokia has confirmed that some of its Bluetooth-enabled cell phones are vulnerable to "bluesnarfing," in which an attacker exploits a flaw to read, modify and copy a phone's address book and calendar without leaving any trace of the intrusion.

Networking and security company AL Digital said on Monday that it had discovered a security flaw in Bluetooth, a wireless data standard, that could allow such an attack. The flaw affects a number of Sony Ericsson, Ericsson and Nokia handsets, but some models--including a handful of Nokia phones--are at greater risk because they invite attack even when in "invisible mode," according to AL Digital.

According to AL Digital's Bluestumbler Web site, vulnerable phones incl...

cell phone amplifier

I just installed a cell phone Amplifier and a 24" magnetic mount dual band antenna in my vehicle. I have several questions about the operation, first -my signal fades to zero when I turn the amplifier off but if I remove the phone from the amplifier the signal returns. however when I turn the amplifier on I get a good signal. second- when the phone is hooked up to the amplifier and I have a full signal sometimes I cant make or recieve calls am I too close to the tower already and there is interference??

Bluetooth on Nokia 6310i

Hello guys,

I wanted to find out from anyone if they had successfully used a Bluetooth adapter to communicate with a Nokia BT equipped phone. I have heard that the Nokia BT stack acts funny and I want to know before I buy a Nokia with BT if i'll be able to even use it with my adapters. Please let me know if anyone is currently utilizing Bluetooth from the Nokia to another device using an adapter.
