Which carriers can handle Streaming video?

Cingular, verizon sprint service can handle streaming video. what about tmobile, virgin, dobson, cincinnati Bell, alltel and the old AT&T systems.

Also, what is "offdeck gateway permission" and would a developer need this to offer streaming from their wapsite?

7 MB delivery test (5 minutes)
10 MB delivery test (5 min, high quality)
carrier policy - permission of large files
carrier policy - lower data charges for hippo

any info on these also would be helpful.

thanks in advance.

She Broke it!

I just replaced my RAZR, and shortly after that my friend put hers through the laundry. I offered her mine since I wasn't using it anymore.

She brought it to the USCellular store to get her number switched over to it. She handed it to the woman at the store, who poked a couple buttons and then announced that the phone was broken, and suggested that that was the reason I had given it away.

The phone had worked perfectly for 2 years and I only replaced it because I wanted something better.

Anyway. I'd like to fix it; here's what it does:

It turns on fine, but rather than a useful home screen, you get the status indicators at the top and a black screen.

If you press the left arrow, you get the media options, but the only one tha...

Sprint OpenWeb Update

Sprint OpenWeb Update

Published by Dennis March 18th, 2008 in Content Adaptation and Carriers.

I've found out a little more about the OpenWeb transcoder that US CDMA/EVDO provider Sprint is rolling out which I wrote about last week. If you missed that piece, Sprint has added a transcoder from OpenWave called OpenWeb to at least some of their WAP gateways. The stated purpose of OpenWeb is to transform full web pages that wouldn't be usable on handsets into something mobile friendly. The problem is that the OpenWeb software modifies the browser's http headers, removing some and adding others which breaks many off-portal content (ringtone, wallpaper, game) delivery services. OpenWeb also transcodes many mobile websites that don't need it...

Running with a SIM card


We are looking for phones that offer to our customers for use with a robot that we are manufacturing. Our robot requires a Bluetooth controller and the first version of the controller program was written for Windows Mobile.

Some of our customers already have a WM device and can download the software and install it, but others have to buy a WM phone or PDA separately. We would like to buy a stock of new and used phones and/or PDAs that we can offer to our customers who don't already have them. Many of our customers will buy these phones from us solely to use with our robot and do not want to get phone service for the phone.
But one thing that we are finding difficult to discover is which phones will allow the user to do things...
