on sprint, upgrade eligibility is based on esn, unless the esn is changed by lockline - at least that has been my experience as a sprint customer the last five times i've been involved in it (whether for myself or any of my friends) over the past few years

switching phones: how easy is it to do?
Dec 3, 2007, 3:31 PM
in the Article: What "Any App, Any Device" Really Means forum

quick question... actually, let me ramble for a bit of explanation first... (scroll down for the actual question) i have been with many different wireless carriers in the past (t-mobile, cingular, sprint, verizon, and cricket, to name a few) and from my experience, it is a lot easier to switch handsets if you're on a gsm carrier than it is if you're on a cdma carrier. what i am familiar with is being able to take the sim card out of my old ...

re: why did it take so long

in the Article: What "Any App, Any Device" Really Means forum

please allow me to try to answer this question for you... as far as i know, gsm networks have always had open handset policies because of the way the phones are built. further, cdma networks have always been locked for the same reason. let me elaborate. gsm phones and networks are built such that anytime a device tries to access the network, the information on the S-ubscriber I-dentification M-odule (or SIM card) is verified, and the handset (or device) compatability with the network ...

cant be done with this phone ps - im curious as to whether you can list any model cell phone that can do that...as far as im aware, every single cell phone ever made is/was/will always be, designed to make a sound as its turning off or turning on...part of the basic conceptual makeup of a cell phone

Re: media files on memory card
Aug 18, 2007, 11:21 AM
in the Samsung SPH-M510 forum

-while we're on the subject, is it possible to use files on the memory card as ring tones or alarm ringers, and if so, how? You can't. You have to upload them through the web and download them to your phone. I think you might be able to with the sync. so, wait, did you say that i could load my music files to the internet and then download them to the phone to use them as ringtones or alarms? how ...

i have a friend who has a samsung sync and she just bought my 1g microsd after i bought a 2g microsd from radio shack for about 30 bucks (it was on sale) anyway, she asked me to help her use it, i told her she would first need a usb adapter, but then i realized that there was something about her phone (as well as my m510, for that matter) that i didn't know: -what folder do music files ...

i think the best name anyone's come up with so far for this phone in this thread in onyx...i just wanted to comment that i think it would be simply poetic for samsung to release a phone identical to this one (e.g., with at least all the features this phone has) except in a slider form factor, and have everyone start calling it the cocoa, as if samsung released to directly compete with lg's chocolate, as sanyo did when ...

ever since the merger was announced i've been looking forward to being able to use nextel's ptt network without switching my contract to nextel... i thought that these hybrid phones would allow me to do that, but i guess the exculsivity agreement that motorola has with nextel regarding iden chipsets is still in place, huh? anyone have any clue when i'll be able to use a phone on my sprint contract to ptt with my gf's nextel?

i just signed up a few days ago and i just wanted to make sure everyone knew about a few things the guy in the store told me. i was talking to him about developing a plan for me to be able to upgrade from the Xcursion that i just got to the nokia slider, when it gets launched in January. he told me that whenever anyone is signing up for cricKet service, and they are providing their own phone, ...

in the Sprint forum

yeah...i agree if verizon ever merged with sprextel than that would almost be a monopoly (don't bash, i did say almost)... but if verizon ever did merge with someone, i would like to see them merge with t-mobile...that would bring rise to a world of wireless providers similar to the world of auto carmakers... i.e. *the big three* u.s. companies would be combatting everyone else from europe...but of course t-mobile is already huge in europe

so what do i do? will i ever be able to chirp with her from my sprint phone? last year i heard somewhere that sometime this year sprint is supposed to be introducing some new phones that will use cdma (on the sprint network) for voice and data (evdo) and iden/tdma (on the nextel network) for ptt. this will make these phones an industry first - single handsets that operate on two networks simultaneously. anyway, do i have to wait, and ...

other than the fact that it is dual-mode, neither of the dual-mode phones on that page seemed as interesting as the slimline iden phone at the bottom...i was just in the sprint forum commenting on the new sanyo 9900 'katana', and then i come in here and see a new iden slimline phone!...let me expand on my day to better explain the way i feel... talking to sprint rep about new phones on the market...the RAZR is mentioned...then the BLADE ...

wait a tic... so is that what the sprint tech support rep meant when he told me that "Sprint's current phones that support RL will be able to communicate in a PTT fashion with Nextel's iDEN phones, but not until sometime next year, possibly late spring, likely early summer"? was he referring to qchat? was he saying, in a cryptic way, that my 8200, and everybody else's RL phones, as well as everybody's iden phones, will be updated OTA sometime next ...

please satisfy my curiosity... why is streaming tv USEFUL (i.e. "PRODUCTIVE") on a cell phone?... what i'm trying to do is to explore the capabilities that feature gives the user, to determine if i want a phone that has that feature (i.e. "WHAT AM I MISSING?") p.s. i now have a sanyo 8200, and i love it...

yeah, i guess i agree with you, only b/c sprint's ptt works over their data network...i was about to post "WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT?" b/c i was thinking that ptt, voice, and bt all work with distinct chipsets, but then my sanyo reminded me by disabling RL when i jumped online...
