Samsung Note 4 Crashing Repeatedly
May 18, 2016, 6:21 PM
in the Android forum

What's going on with the Samsung Note 4 and other Samsung Galaxy phones starting to crash and reboot repeatedly? A lot of people are reporting the problem but noone has a legitimate fix for it as far as I can tell. Anybody know any details about this?

Best choice for temporary service in Europe
Mar 28, 2015, 4:01 PM
in the Around the World forum

Hello, I am planning a future trip to Europe and I am about to the point where my current phone is dying out on me. I have Sprint service and do not plan on changing providers. Can anyone help me figure out the best way to have phone service in Europe for a couple weeks without going broke on charges? Should I upgrade to a certain phone on Sprint? Is the Blu Phone the way to go? Is there another ...

biznass said: Get a GSM pre-paid phone when you are in Europe. It will save you A LOT of money. I took my T-Mobile phone to England for three weeks and got a very un-lovely $650 bill because they didn't tell me it was $1 per minute AND $1 every time someone called me whether I answered or not. The smartest thing to do is get a phone when you get there (I like Orange personally for the UK) and ...

Galaxy Note 2 - Tinny sound in calls
Jun 17, 2014, 4:38 PM
in the Samsung Galaxy Note II (Sprint, US Cellular) forum

More frequently lately my Note 2 sounds very tinny and loud when making and receiving calls.I joke with a friend that it sounds like she is standing right behind me. Before, I would hang up and redial to fix it it. Now that doesn't work any more. I thought it was a reception issue. Any ideas what might be happening? Has it happened to you? I'm due an upgrade next month but I would like to keep this ...

in the Article: Sprint Adds LTE to Baltimore and Other Cities forum

I can't wait to got to a Sprint store and check it out. Maybe the Baltimore Grand Prix this weekend can be a chance to see how the Baltimore Sprint LTE service will perform with a large concentration of users on the system at once. That is, assuming a large number of Sprint subscribers attend the race. Either way, I'm glad it's here now.

Thanks for the good reply. Hopefully someone on Sprint LTE will reply as well, about things like, quality of Digital Voice data signal inside buildings battery life with heavy use etc. For comparison, I currently have the EVO 4G and am very pleased with it with the exception of battery performance, and storage space. I was planning to get The EVO 4G LTE costs more non removeable ...

Anybody care to share their experience with the new LTE service since several new areas have it? I am eligible for upgrade soon and looking forward to better service with LTE. Is it as good as it is supposed to be? -Thanks

in the LG Lotus forum

In case you still have this problem. . Update: I exchanged my phone. I updated the software on the new phone through one of the menu options and the ringtones work now. Also, I took the advice of another poster on here and used Myxer.com to download ringers to my phone. The downloaded ringers work fine.

Thanks for posting. The slow speed had been bothering me. I just downloaded Operamini 4.2 after reading your post, and the difference is pleasingly faster. :wink: 8)

I experience the same thing. It is pretty annoying. I thought it was something I wasn't doing correctly until I read your post. I'll have to check the user manual to see if there is something useful in there.

It has been my experience that it does not replace your main browser. I believe you need to run it as an application each time you want to use it. I've found it to be much better than the default browser, imho.

Youtube and Google are menu options accessible from the Sprint Carousel menu on the phone, and I had no problem getting them to work.

I'm not sure what happened in your case, but if Opera Mini installed it should be listed in your Applications.

The phone has menu options that let you add email accounts and other applications to your menu/carousel. I downloaded Opera mini because i like it better as a browser. You should check it out at a Sprint store, I think this phone is really cool.

Coming from an ic902 phone I really appreciate the qwerty keyboard. I like the phone, but two things; second day I had it a line showed up across my screen that won't go away, and sometimes the phone never receives the call when people call me. I tested it myself and got mixed results. Did anyone else encounter these things? Maybe it's an isolated incident. I plan to replace it this weekend. This phone is ...

Cool. I'll have one in a couple of days too. I couldn't do the purple, but the black looks good. I hope that finding accessories isn't too difficult. I'm expecting to need a car charger, belt clip, and extended battery, but I haven't checked on those yet.

I just saw it at a Sprint store. It has a very nice screen, keyboard, camera, and the size seems okay for my large hands. Price was $299 before discount, $149 after discount. I like it.

Anybody know if this affects the iTouch as well?
Aug 27, 2008, 4:09 PM
in the Article: iPhone Security Flaw Exposed forum

If so, is the fix accomplished through the same steps? I have a friend who just got an iTouch and I was wondering if this applies to the iTouch too. If it does I can warn them about it. I ask because I think the iTouch allows Web browsing like the iPhone. Thanks.

I like the 800w, but I like the look of the Pro better. I have been looking at various qwerty phones, and I have decided to get the Treo 800W when the extended battery becomes available. The feature I like best is the speed of the phone. It might be nice to see it look more like the Treo Pro, though. When the 800w came out I was expecting it to look more like the Pro does. It ...

Will it be possible to upgrade from the ic902 to the Treo 800 without my $30 SERO plan price changing? I like the Treo 800 and was planning on getting one, but I do not want my plan to change. Thanks.

If the light does not flash while charging, maybe your usb is not plugged in snugly. try this to get rid of the red light, https://www.phonescoop.com/phones/p_f orum.php?fm=m&ff=1137&fi=1573082 That's all I can think of. Good luck. :wink:
