Am I reading this correctly, 3g? Are we talking REV. 0 or just 1xRTT?!

in the Article: Verizon Wireless Confirms $350 ETF for Premium Devices forum

The used cell phone market has been flooded with smartphones and high end feature phones! Why, you ask, it's simple: A bunch of "entrepeneurs" with decent credit were adding lines, getting crazy deals, and cancelling to make a profit by selling the phone on ebay/craigslist. Well, thanks to them, I have seen market prices plummet! Now that the incentive is gone, we won't see people cancelling for no reason other than profit. With less phones ...

Versed said: Right, VZW will do it because they can get away with it, and others will follow. This is outright abuse. I can't believe these fanboi's buy into this crap. And what I just said holds true if AT&T or whomever pulls the same. This is not abuse, it's a smart biz decision. If you let your customers walk all over you, I think we know where you will end up (Sprint)...lol. Seriously, do you ...

Versed said: Yes these phones cost more, but they are also charging more for them. They are also making a decent profit on the data they charge for them. Which is why they only make the subsidy back if you STAY with them, hence the ETF. High end phones have always cost at least $500, so for you to say that they are charging more now is baseless. I just don't get the feeling that you understand that ...

Menno said: how is an etf greedy? do you SERIOUSLY think a company wants to collect it? VZW makes a smart business decision and everyone is up in arms, screaming "UNFAIR". The subsidy matches the ETF, what's the big deal? I gather that, since the wireless industry has been caught in a wait and see mode for some time now, it will not take long for the other Big Three (carriers) to follow suit.

Huge Battery?

in the Article: Verizon Wireless Captures HTC Ozone forum

I recently got a sneak peek of this phone. The rep told me to take the battery out. It's MASSIVE :o , although not noticeable if you didn't know to look, it doesn't affect the phone's balance, it actually feels very nice in the hand). He told me that they put such a large one in to counteract the characteristically poor battery life associated with windows mobile 6.1 Standard phones like the Motorola Q Series.

The phone is brown, not maroon.

Any use of a wireless network is detrimental!
Feb 22, 2007, 7:25 PM
in the Article: Skype Asks FCC to Level the Playing Field forum

This petition is gonna be smacked down quicker than Ike hit Tina. Any device accessing a wireless network is detrimental to the wireless network because each device takes a tiny slice of spectrum. A skype phone phone would take a slice of the spectrum, therefore lessening the capacity of the network.

1. You should definateley spring for the $15 Power Vision pack that offers unlimited data usage. 2. Get a case as well, to keep it looking pretty. 3. You might wanna grab a mini-sd card of at least 512mb. I just got my Q three days ago, and I love it. Just like you wouldn't buy a car w/o wheels, get those accessories to get you rolling.

I was watching CNN today, and they recapped what apple wants to accomplih with the iPhone. Steve Jobs wants to take 1% of the US market share. This equates to 10 million handsets. Apple sold an estimated 23.5 million ipods last year. Jobs seems a little over confident with his 10mil mark considering that the iPhone doesn't offer the storage that the ipods can offer. Let's be real here Jobs: a lot of people love your products, but ...

what a marketing mind f***! cingular is so ambiguous with their marketing tactics! they keep changing their name, as if to run away from previous names and their reputations. its sickening, just like their coverage map(see Dictionary..look up ambiguous...you'll see a pic of cingy's coverage map), it shows coverage that you can only get with an old tdma handset! what confusion for the uninformed.

The sync is a rather large phone, i mean it dwarfs my sanyo mm9000, a large phone by todays standards. Try out that cingular network if you want to, but remember you have 14/30 days to return that crap when you realize what you got into.

Cingular has introduced a new way to screw it's customers. Less savvy parents will buy this for their kids and probably never realize that they are getting the screw. And what about data rates? Does the gift card cover the usage? Doubt it.

LOL! the imei lock is useless! it doesn't block a phone from registering and making calls on the network. and you can only deactivate your own SIM card, you can't do anything with the one that Mr. Thief puts in your phone. and thx to cingular's policy of not insuring the high end phones they offer (the ones most targeted by theft), there is no incentive to register the IMEI with the carrier. CDMA is much more secure, and ...

Prepaid Coverage

in the Article: Holiday Gift Guide 2005 forum

Keep in mind that most prepaid offerings DO NOT include ROAMING, so if you are looking into prepaid be sure to check the prepaid coverage, specifically for Cingular, as their Post-Paid coverage maps do not show where you are roaming.

True, some bluetooth headsets do not support voice dialing, though, so beware. But no doubt about it, you have to have a phone with voice dialing in order to use it through a headset.

Re: nextel or verizon????
Jul 17, 2005, 7:02 PM
in the Rumor Mill forum

True, Sprint's coverage area is as big if not bigger than verizon's. However, Sprint pays rent to many different companies (including verizon) to get that coverage. Verizon owns more network than Sprint, and you will see that if you compare coverage maps. Pay attention to the dark green areas of coverage on the Sprint map, this is what they actually own. And I certainly hope you don't listen to the hype that your company spits at you about how ...

Jul 17, 2005, 6:53 PM

You cannot possibly know how the Sprint Nextel merger will go, steve lvl. There is also no sign of a cdma/iden handset in the future. Also, if you examine the coverage maps, Sprint's cdma network has less coverage than nextel's in most places, meaning there will be little to no advantage for nextel users to roam cdma. The fact is, the networks are so different that it will be more complicated than the CingularAtt merger. All nextel users will ...

First of all, Cingular could not buy T-Mobile for the same reason Verizon cannot merge with Sprint, it is called a monopoly. If Cingular bought T-Mobile they would have a monopoly on the GSM market. Next, it is much cheaper to add new equipment to an existing tower than to build a new one. New towers cost anywhere from $700k to $2.5mil (source: my good friend builds cell towers).
