Got it already
I like having the options provided to me but I don't see a way to remove it
I think its safe to say that the current us postal service is going to be failing pretty shortly with its need to deliver mail to almost every house in the country when half of the mail now is just junk anyway. I think that the government should start to think about replacements for it one of them being a government controlled e-mail system with a street address instead of a personalized e-mail address as the alias. ...
Re: Why would Google want a part of that?
you apparently like to shoot your mouth off. YES Best Buy IS looking for more ways to expand services. I'm not even going to go into anything else you said because you're just yelling "I know a lot I know a lot" but apparently you've done lots of research and know a lot about what big companies want. When is your next speaking engagement I would love to learn from your infinite wisdom.
I switched from Nextel
I switched from Nextel because the coverage is spotty, I tried Sprint but they seem to have the same swiss cheese coverage model.
Re: Because everyone wants yet another standard
its odd that they say the standard will alleviate the 3 minute wait time because that has more to do with other factors then the access time of the card, making a standard won't help push the industry along it will just restrict the industry from moving forward once we pass the standard
Re: Poor Design...
yeah the 911 button placement (and its existance) is pretty rediculous. The ICE keys are great though its nice to see such a common sense idea make it into product design
free service supported by advertising?
I don't like this idea AT ALL. There was a reason I never used net zero and there's a reason I'd rather pay for conveniance then get a pain in the ass for free. I would fall all over myself to pay for a google phone but I don't want to have a qaurter of it covered with ads and I don't want ads given to me every 5 minutes.
Re: oh how naive does google think we are...
while I have very little to hidee, there are some things I wouldn't want my mother to see, I wouldn't watn the government to have total access to my information for any reason. I'd rather die at the hands of satin because the government didn't have access to his e-mail then allow the government to read mine.
well.. I will say waiting for the american "justice" system to pass judgement would be like fiscal suicide.. I haven't looked at the ruling but I wonder if its just one of those things there a company says "we thought this would be a good idea first" rather than "we DEVELOPED this first"
Re: How long do you think the band will last?
it looks like a one hit wonder right now but you never know, those bastards sneak in another hit sometimes
it repeats things, I REALLY hope this doesn't catch on. at this point there's no reason for it unless you want as much music on your phone as you do your big ipod and if you want that much music and don't care at all about the quality then you really shouldn't have a say.
gosh I'm really sorry
didn't realize it was such a problem to mention that other phone in somebody elses thread.. well could ya go ahead and consider the fact that I also asked for some comments on the problems in the review of the phone? that'd be great thanks
Problem with 700w
I have a problem where if I get a call waiting call and don't answer it the phone goes into stand by. Could you check if thats an issue? Also does the bluetooth work well? With my 700w its scratchy
Re: You had me at Full Microsoft Office!
they say "full microsoft office" I'm nearly positive it is exactly what is already there.
Re: Maybe they should focus on a stable mobile operating system first
I'm so frustrated with the treo 700w I'm ready to throw it out of a moving vehicles.. luckily I am able to get verizon to replace it if I exchange it 3 times in a 60 day period
Re: Already Done
you're an idiot
I'm not a big fan of backward compatibility, it stifles innovation in new operating systems.
Re: Invest now imo... before it's too late
honestly wimax is supposed to be cheap to deploy compared to other techs. I just recently got a second job at best buy geek squad and I've had 8 people in the week that I've been there come in with Verizon air cards I'd say there's a shift that is starting to make these investments worth it
Re: Who cares
1. I agree I'd rather have this software for my google account. 2. Its a bloated version of the desktop software? .. dude how huge is your pda?!.. Linux had a chance at taking the mobile market it didn't do very well.. it still has a chance especially with palm os .. though its a slim one.
Re: Who cares
I'm so so tired of this. Shut up
That seems like an unrealistic launch date
4 Years to completely revolutionize wireless? Seems really ambitious unless they are talking about the first commercial network being in Japan. I would honestly rather see 3G be worldwide before they start working on 4G! Also a standard of service for wireless data services would be nice. There's still very little reason to have data in the United States in terms of usable services.
Re: what about the in calling commercial?
sorry maybe I didn't make my question clear. I understand that you can call 10 phone numbers. as obviously stated. The problem I'm having is that the tv ad makes no mention of the 10 person limit and makes it sound as if you can call ANYONE (not just 10 numbers) for free
what about the in calling commercial?
While the radio ad they've been running talks about it only being for 10 people the television ad is completely misleading it seems like they are suggesting you can call anyone on any network for free.
this is rediculous
Are people trying to systematically shut down business as we know it??
Re: A network of repeaters?
and in sparsely populated area's in grandpa's barn? or how about smaller towns? even larger towns??
latency, high power consumption, bad signal.. everywhere
except ofcourse in the middle of a field on a clear day and... ... no thats about the only place you'll get a decent signal this idea is nuts except for people who live in the middle of nowhere
Re: UMTS/HSPDA/EVDO begone!
Thats the hope but I don't see it totally happening.. cingular has committed to the 3GSM and verizon has pretty much committed to qualcomm's cdma standard. The variables are sprint.. which apparently just tested (it doesn't seem they've committed) Qualcomms UI which I would assume would hinder their move to a non qualcomm product. We have to remember that sprint and nextel have now merged and nextel was willing to try flash ofdm and then abandon it ...
anyone else hear a hallelujah chorus?
this will make my life SOOOOO much easier.. carriers will hate it though they probably make a fortune off charger sales
Bad for partners customers
From what I've heard partners has a lot better customer service. They can expect that to go WAY down hill.
I'm sure they did wait for it to get to market months ago.. then damned it this model has been out for gsm carriers for a while. I actually kind of like the dialing numbers on the 7510 I haven't had much trouble at all with it. the thing I'd like about this more is the thinner setting so that it will fit in my hand better
has nextel decided to add text messaging to this one?!
the absolute most aggravating part about having a nextel blackberry is the lack of basic text messaging functionality
Shoota said: its like the girl in freshman dorm 6th floor with the clap.. looks good on the outside, maybe even comes with a rebate, but im my opinion is this really worth it? :wink: seems like more junk yeeup agreed completely back when the 6600 came out I thought I was set for life and hated it. I couldn't dial for crap in the car with that thing and it doesn't look like this will ...
so now the iDen phone selection gets to be under developed by an even bigger company! I am excited to see nextels transition to cdma though
Re: RIM has nothing to worry about
They use it exclusively for wireless e-mail I'd say thats a pretty big trust
Re: RIM has nothing to worry about
I do have to say though this is a great solution for small companies (like mine) who don't want to spend the extra money on BES and are buying say MS windows sbs and whats great about that is that there are so many different forms of phone now that run windows mobile. whereas there are 2 form factor's for blackberry's. its and ms world unfortunately unless you have the money and size to buy other things.
does anyone know if it will support bluetooth 1.2?
brighthand says it will have dual speakers, dual headphones would be nice too.
Re: RIM has nothing to worry about
something we're quickly forgetting about... security.. blackberry is still the only mobile e-mail device that the military trusts. Corporations want security more then they want their it guys to have less work. Microsoft doesn't know what security is! Blackberry isn't dead just yet this is a great solution but not a blackberry killer yet
ever used a blackberry? this thing is a blackberry.. thats what they want.. blackberry's are crack the make or break issue is how the e-mail will work.. if window's new instant syncing system is as good as they hype.. this thing will shoot off like a rocket
actually the cdma razr doesn't have bluetooth unfortunately
