Just a way to make sure they they don't have to pay a channel commission. Money grabbing move, as usual.

Like Sprint trying to pass off WiMax as 4G Nevermind, I saw for only a (reported) 10Mbps difference, it's just as bad.

They really need to stop. It's too overloaded. I can't stand stories and now they've made it half the screen, front and center.

I'd ask my girlfriend about her experience but she's part of a Sprint outage right now. XD

Didn't they just say they wanted to do away with that regulation? Oh wait, Pai worked for Verizon. Forgot. No conflict of interest there at all.

READ WHEN INSTALLING!!!

in the Article: Facebook Says Android Users Gave It Permission to Collect Data forum

This is why you read each option when installing an app. Don't just blindly hit NEXT every time. The amount of "options" that you have to opt out when installing Facebook alone is way too much. Glad they are under fire.

Bad move

An Environmental Assessment is in place to make sure that construction/operation/maintenance of a tower does not negatively impact the space or resources the tower uses. By "removing the red tape", they are basically stating they don't care if it can do damage where the tower is built, just do it.

Choice plans will NOT be capped at 3mbps, but data prioritization will still be effect from the very beginning. Also lines 3 and 4 are $20 each and 5+ are $30 each, not $40 for both plans. You do not need DirecTV Now to get HBO for free, just need to be on an unlimited plan. Better check your sources, BTW, I work for AT&T.

They've always had lofty aspirations for being the first at everything, and last I checked, they have failed miserably every time. They truly have the smallest coverage and proven slowest speeds. Yet again, their focus is going to come to bite them in the ass.

in the Article: Sprint to Launch 5G In 2019 Using 2.5 GHz Spectrum forum

This 2.5GHz spectrum is what's left over from the days of "4G" WiMAX. Back then the problem was it offered HORRIBLE indoor coverage due to the high frequency. They really need to ditch that and realize why no other carriers are going to be doing their own on that high of band.

So that's what they did with the old WiMAX spectrum. Didn't they realize it could barely penetrate a piece of paper?

It should not be forced like that anyways. I have the S8 and cut a notch in my case to avoid pressing it. Bixby is flawed and is still not ready for release (it's still a beta program). Samsung kept coming out with software patches as people kept finding ways around having that button activate every time. Looks like they are finally admitting defeat at least as far as that is concerned. It should still be a choice as ...

You get a spare key with a car, what happens if you lose your phone? You can't even use the car to get to a cell phone place to get a replacement phone so you can log back into the app.

Maybe they should invest in more coverage instead of more retail locations?

Oh but have they fixed burn-in issues?

They need to address the biggest drawback of these devices and that's the infamous AMOLED burn-in. You can always tell what a person does the most based on what gets burned into their screens.

Because at this point, each carrier is coming up with their own 5G in different ways. Years ago in the race to implement 4G service, Sprint did the same thing with WiMax hoping that would be the standard. It flopped and Sprint lost millions of dollars.

I still see people to this day clinging to these plans. However I have found that maybe 95% of people would be paying LESS by switching to a offered plan. I see people paying $100+ more than what they should just to hold on to that. It's a crutch word that is costing some consumers thousands a year. For anyone that has the old unlimited plan, call your carrier and have them analyze your plan. If saving a hundred ...

So this means updates are going to be reactive instead of proactive and be delayed instead of immediate? This is why the Nexus line was losing steam, and this completely puts out the fire.

Since regular Messenger is about 150MB, I would use this instead. I even have a low end device, I just think it's bloaty and I don't use half of the "features" of the full version.

in the Article: Samsung to Recall Note7 Amid Reports of Fires forum

Seems to be the current action plan with each carrier now (I work for AT&T). Seems that Samsung may be throwing in an extra kicker for those that stick with the Note to the tune of a 256GB card or Gear VR. Most people already got one anyways but Samsung may do a second for each person.

If you have one, call your carrier's customer care for further instruction. AT&T 800-331-0500 Verizon 800-922-0204 Sprint 888-211-4727 TMobile 877-746-0909

I have always preferred Slacker over Pandora. The fact that Milk ran off the Slacker engine and featured less ads was a real bonus. If there was one of these crazy services Samsung tries and failed at (messenger, hub, etc) I was really hoping Milk is the one that made the cut.

2 bands... why not 3 bands... why not 18 BANDS!!!! Stacking coverage over existing coverage does nothing for Sprint's #1 reason why they will always be sub-par, and that's their overall coverage. No point offering ridiculous speeds if only less than 5% of the population can enjoy it.
