Poor connectivity, inconsistent charging, but 3 ●s?
Aug 16, 2017, 11:07 AM
in the Article: Review: Nuheara IQbuds Bluetooth Headphones forum

Just an opinion, but those are two CRITICAL functions. I feel 1 ● would have been more in order because these are basically unusable in regular everyday conditions.

That's ridiculous, degrading, and certainly not within store policy. Email HR, dan@sprint.com and Paget Alves.

I want to pay the minimum...

Customer comes in- "I wanna pay the minimum amount to restore service, how much is it?" What I WISH I COULD SAY --It's $xxx.xx -WHAT!? Why is it that much? ((Research bill history)) Well, back in June, you got a $300 bill and only paid half of it, you keep carrying that past due balance over and each month you're paying the minumum so your balance is getting larger. --Well that's BULLS#!+!! What can you do about it? -Nothing, bills are charges for services rendered, frankly ...

Yeah, I've been told by several people I have vented to that I should join along in the games, but that's just not me. I'm better than the rest of the crowd and won't sell myself short- ever. After 7 yrs in the industry, I'm feeling the mobile burn (no not the website.) I love the tech, like most of the customers, and hate the BS. Sadly until I graduate, I'm pigeonholed! Phonescoop, you're ...

He's the problem though, after doing this for 7 years with 3 different companies, I know darn near everything there is to know about cell phones and troubleshooting. Desptie the fact I work in a Svc/Rpr store, I still find myself doing all the customer ...

Ironically- the screen seems to actually be a VGA lcd, but WM6 Standard only support QVGA resolution. This gives the menus and icons a sort of unpolished look. You guys will see what I'm talking about when it comes out.

The biggest difference will be that Cingular/Att's 3G network will actually exist. Where T-Mobile's 3G will continue to be a mysterious mythological entity. (Note: I'm an employee- I'm not bashing- Just bitter!)

Cmon TMO.. Im tired of selling ****ty ass middle of the road Samsung time bombs.

"I was also told (verbal is binding in my state) by the sales rep that I would have 3 bars of service at home." Your state is dumb. Verbal binding agreements never hold up in court. Point is- coverage is not as predictable as picture on a map. All of the TMO brochures indicate that as well. There are numerous things that affect reception. -- Buildings, trees, bad electrical wiring... for all you know, your house could be ...

Not coming anytime soon. I met Neville Ray (the President of Network Development) and his team, and they told me that SE is a bit harder to work with in the states, particularly with the myFaves launch. Samsung will pretty much do anything TMO tells them to, which explains our wide selection of Samsungs. They are also improvnig reltions with Nokia and Motorola. On the other hand SE is harder to make custom software for, ...

The ExtUSB connector fits just like a standard usb cable does, only one side is squared off. This allows both standard 5-pin mini USB and proprietary cables to fit in the same slot.

Re: PTT?

in the T-Mobile forum

VERY unlikely to happen... PTT has been an absolute money pitfor every carrier but Nextel.. When I worked for Cingular during the PTT launc.. NOBODY signed up- they wasted soo much money installing PTT and have nothing to show for. If T-Mobile does launch it.. it will be after the HSDPA launch early next year.. whats nice about HSDPA is that there is so much extra bandwidth that PTT is pretty much all software.

T-Mobile will NOT be getting this model. We will, however be carrying the new Blackberry loaded with a camera and mp3 player. It is due out in September.. there is no model number or specific specs known, but it is a sure thing we will be the exclusive carrier of it.

Sure people whined about not having high end phones.. but not as high end (and lo end on features) as the 8801. Every 8801 that we have sold has been returned because customers aren't getting their money's worth. I think it would be in T-Mobile's best interest to expeand the handset lineup. Our rate plans are fine.. that's what brings people into our stores. They leave when they see our crappy phones. We maybe ...

I work for Tmo in retail sales in the Dallas market. I happen to be in one of the slowest stores in my area, and I only work about 30 hrs a week. I typiclly can make about $3,000/mo gross but there are guysthat make $6-7g/month. T-Mobile is also nice and laid back about feature and accesory attachments. Yeah sure they want you to have good numbers on them, but theyre really more worried about ...

in the T-Mobile forum

The T609 is a GREAT phone. The ONLY thing I dislike about it is the fact that it will not ring and vibrate simultaneously. It will vibrate THEN ring. As for the $50 dollar price difference, save the $50 get the T609 and for $50 you can get a 1GB MicroSD on pricewatch.com Alot better than the 64mb the t809 has. The T609 runs circles around the t809 in battery life, reception, and volume, ...

They really are garbage. Best phone we have now-- besides the overpriced 8801.. I'd say is the 6103 or t609. Both are very well rounded in features, reasonably priced, and have great rf. I never get em returned either.. so taht helps.

See.. thats one of the things I HATE about the MDA. I don't want my contacts to be sorted like Outlook sorts them. I want them to be sorted like they are on a phone--IE: Bob Smith 555-5555 ... not Smith, Bob (h)555-5555. The windows platform is just too convoluted. You have to take three to four steps to perform operations that only take 1 or 2 steps on symbian.. or on regular phones. ...

Well frankly.. it's pretty hard to mess up a flash. But as WinHack said... if you're not 100% confident it'll work.. don't do it. The first time I was in the middle of a flash, my computer froze and I thought my MDA was a brick that I had just paid $200 for! :o Luckily, there is a special bootloader mode that allowed me to flash it with something called an RUU. The only ...

That software caused too many bugs in my MDA. Instead, I just created a "My Documents" folder on my storage card, and windows will automatically populate those ringtones in its sounds list. This way you dont take up the device's storage memory/ram.

I've had the MDA since the day it came out.. (I work for TMO,) and while the screen looks pretty bad with the brightness down.. it can be turned up very easily. Go into settings>system>backlight. Voila! It gets bright enough to counteract most direct sunlight. As far as reception goes. Just flash a QTEK radio rom to it. I now have a phone with strong enough signal to make my computer speakers buzz from ...

I didn't say ALL indirects are dishonest. I worked for a Cingular agent store for about two years, and we were definitely honest. I left there to getbetter pay with TMO direct.

I don't see it happening. I work at a TMO corp store, and the word around the regional offices is that TMO wants to get rid of alot of indirects and focus more on national retail. Indirects have literally ruined the company image in many markets, and that's not something TMO is too happy about.

Well outsourcing is something that we have to deal with. But I really think for something as serious as a job interview process, it would make more sense to keep it stateside. This argument went WAY off base. :lol: Getting back to my original point- I feel that because we as agents can't do as much as corp. employees and don't get paid as much, we (typically) have to make up for it with ...

Im moving to Frisco. I wouldn't sell T-Mobile in McKinney-coverage ain't up to snuff yet. But I'm in the store at 380 and Redbud (across from the old Wal-Mart) until this Friday. Then I start T-mo by Stonebriar mall. Better credit, in addition to lower credit standards=more acts.

Never had a problem w/my 6200 - I consider it my "GOD" phone. It gets reception almost anywhere, it's been dropped off of my balcony twice, wound up in a pitcher of beer twice, and even spent a few hours in a cup of Dr.Pepper. - I still use it if I anticipate weak signal or tough usage. - Try *3370# to change you speech codec and boost your reception - Its unrelated to GPRS but it's ...
