Re: Small Carriers

in the Article: AT&T, Verizon Dominate AWS-3 Auction forum

As a result of AT&T and Verizon dominating this auction, I'll bet the FCC makes the rules better for the smaller carriers in the 600 MHz auction next year.

I agree as well. People forget that it was govt regulations by local governments that led to the situation we have now where local govts would award only one cable TV franchise in a geographic area. By the time this was outlawed in 1992 by the Cable Act, it was too late to address the problem. I'm still waiting for Verizon FIOS to come to my area in NYC to give Time Warner some competition. ...

Droid 4 battery - is it removable?
Jan 10, 2012, 11:54 AM
in the Article: Hands On with the Moto Droid 4 and Droid RAZR MAXX forum

Rich, I've been hearing different information about whether or not the Droid 4 battery is removable or not. From your video and pics it looks like there might be a battery cover on the back of the phone. So does this phone have a removable battery? Thanks in advance. Sam

Droid Pro looks like the Palm Pixi

The Droid Pro looks similar to the Palm Pixi. I know a lot of people who want a physical keyboard but don't like sliders like the Motorola Droid/Droid 2 so this might be the phone for them.

Virgin Mobile has cheaper Blackberry plans. $35/month gets you 300 minutes with unlimited everything else on a Blackberry 8530 and $50/month gets you 1200 minutes with unlimited everything else. I think Virgin Mobile operates on the Sprint network.

Re: Any word about the CDMA Blackberry Pearl Flip (Kickstart)?
Jan 12, 2009, 12:57 PM
in the Article: CES 2009 forum

T-Mobile launched the 8220 on Oct 13th so it's been 3 months already. I can't imagine them having more than a 6 month exclusive. If they have a 6 month exclusive then no other carrier will get it until April. I really hope their exclusive wasn't that long.

Any word about the CDMA Blackberry Pearl Flip (Kickstart)?
Jan 9, 2009, 11:52 AM
in the Article: CES 2009 forum

Guys, Verizon had the Blackberry Pearl 8130 on sale for $20 with a 2 year contract "while supplies last" so that gave me the impression that they might be clearing them out. Is the CDMA Blackberry Pearl Flip (i.e. Kickstart) coming out soon? Any stuff about it at CES? Thanks. Sam

Will Nextel end up with 1900 MHz spectrum?
May 6, 2008, 9:42 AM
in the Article: Sprint Seriously Considering Sale of Nextel forum

If Sprint sells off Nextel, will Nextel end up with the 1900 MHz spectrum that the FCC agreed to give Nextel in exchange for vacating some of it's 850 MHz spectrum? If so, does that mean Nextel will keep using iDen and move to the 1900 MHz spectrum? Here's an article about the spectrum swap that I'm referring to. http://www.networkworld.com/edge/news/20 05/0208nexteagree.html

It only took them almost a year and a half to announce a product. And the end of the year means that we'll probably see it in 2008 a full 2 years after they announced that they'll be working together. That seems like an eternity in mobile phone development. And considering that Samsung and LG have had camera phones with over 5 megapixels for a while now, Motorola needs to catch up.

in the Article: Motorola Announces New Successor To RAZR forum

VERSACE said: motorola phones have never had any other kind of predictive text entry technology but itap. these ones surely aren't any different. That's actually not true. Pure iDEN phones from Motorola such as the i880 have T9. I also believe the Sprint version of the K1m has T9. I agree that these phones will probably have iTAP but I wanted to confirm because of the new JUIX based firmware.

None of the Motorola spec pages for the V8, V9 and V9m mention if these phones have iTAP. I'm a big fan of iTAP so I was wondering if this phone has it and if so, what version? I think the latest version is 6.3.

Re: Rich/Eric, any word on an approximate release date?
Oct 26, 2006, 8:34 AM

I wonder if we can read into the fact that the confidentiality of the FCC documents first expired on 10/21 and then Motorola only requested another 45 days of confidentiality. Basically the new confidentiality expires at the beginning of December. Does that mean that we'll see this device sooner rather than later?

It's good that someone snagged the pics because Motorola asked for another 45 day extension on the confidentiality and the FCC took them down. They also took down the user manual. Here's the confidentiality request that was submitted on Oct 23rd, 2 days after the external photos document was released. http://gullfoss2.fcc.gov/prod/oe t/forms/blobs/retrieve.cgi?attachment_id=7193 11&native_or_pdf=pdf In the document they event admit that they were available since the 21st.

Confused about WCMDA / HSDPA capabilities in N75
Sep 28, 2006, 12:21 PM
in the Article: Nokia Open Studio Fall 2006 forum

The article states that the N75 supports WCDMA but "lacks HSDPA". I thought they were the same but after looking at the PhoneScoop glossary, it appears that HSDPA is an upgraded version WCDMA. I thought that Cingular only supports HSDPA. Does that mean that they also support WCDMA kind of like how EDGE phones also support GPRS? Can a WCDMA capable phone like the N75 take advantage of the HSDPA capabilities on the Cingular network ...

If it was available for Verizon, I'd be all over it. 2 megapixel camera, QVGA screen, microSD slot and Bluetooth 2.0+ EDR with A2DP. This is what I meant when I said that it seems like only Samsung can produce clamshell CDMA phones with QVGA screens.

Lastly, if a particular key combination matches 2 words like 63 returns both "me" and "of", if ...

It's definitely coming to Sprint. There's a completely separate entry on the Bluetooth Qualification Program Website for the Sprint version of the L7c. Here's a link. If you look, you'll see Sprint in parentheses right next to the product id L7c. http://qualweb.bluetooth.org/Template 2.cfm?LinkQualified=QualifiedProducts&Details =Yes&ProductID=3674 One other thing. The Sprint version is getting the OBEX Bluetooth profile. It looks like the Verizon version will not.
