Re: Is the Jet considered a "Smartphone"?
Jun 16, 2009, 6:45 PM
in the Article: Samsung Omnia II & Jet forum

I don't think the Jet would be considered a smart phone, but it seems like the Jet isn't coming to the U.S. You can read at the bottom of one of the pages about that...

The reason it's Resistive...

is because Windows Mobile doesn't support capacitive touch screens... since Windows Mobile doesn't have multitouch now anyway who needs a capacitive screen. Just my $0.02...

Ok. Thanks for your reply. :) It's good to hear the Omnia is doing well. I've only ever had good experiences with Samsung so this is even more reassuring.

Verizon-Alltel Expert Help Needed!
Feb 1, 2009, 4:42 PM
in the General forum

I’m currently an Alltel subscriber who is looking to buy a touchscreen phone, and I’m not sure how it works now that Verizon has acquired Alltel. The phones I’m looking at right now are: Samsung Omnia HTC Touch Diamond Blackberry Storm I used to sell both Alltel and T-Mobile at a local Radioshack in my town so I’m not new to the cell phone biz, but I haven’t done much research lately so these are the ones I’ve got thus far. My main concerns ...

Yeah, being such a brick and only having a 2.0 MP camera kinda sets it quite a ways back compared to the competitors... I guess only time will tell how it'll sell.

in the Article: New Law to Require 'Click' from Camera Phones forum

The thing is, if they have this passed then they should make it so that all cameras should need to make sounds while taking pictures. But every camera can silence the sound so what's the difference with camera phones?? Oh, and while they're at it they might as well make ever video camera have to make sounds while recording too so that people know... haha

Oh really? Huh... Well, as far as phone options go that's a good thing for Alltel customers! :D

Coming to Alltel...?

in the Article: CES 2009 forum

Is there anything at CES this year slated to come to Alltel? And does anyone know if Alltel now being owned by Verizon will help out us Alltel customers with more phones to choose from?? Any help with these questions is greatly appreciated. Thanks. :)

Oh, and I forgot to mention, even though the Behold DOES have a higher MP camera, it does NOT have a headphone jack like the Delve has...

I know it supports mp3s if they are on a memory card, and I assume if they are on the internal memory too...

Hm... you all need to grow up. Besides, the 5 MP camera on the behold isn't even autofocus so you're not gaining much...

Why do you even care? I mean, they are the same phone. :P lol

in the Samsung Delve R800 forum

Well IMO many people nowadays are getting plans with data, so I don't see it being a far stretch for Alltel to say that it needs a data plan... not all that much different than the iPhone (except that the Delve's plan is cheaper). Even though I don't agree that the data plan is mandatory, I understand the move by Alltel. And yes, I have worked as an Alltel salesperson too and know how it can be to explain to ...

Hope they make a CDMA version!

I really hope that they make a CDMA version of this so that I can use it on the Alltel network! ^-^;; Seriously Alltel has a lack of nice camera phones...

For me I am just happy that Moto is finally in the game with pretty much every other company that already has touch screen devices on the market! Now if we could just get Moto to include something better than a 2 MP camera then we'd have a winner! :D

Also, size wize it is only .1 inches thicker than the iPhone and Instinct... To me that isn't bad considering that the stylus can fit inside! haha ;)

Yeah what's wrong with the instinct? https://www.phonescoop.com/phones/ compare.php?id[]=1656&id[]=1449&id[]=&id[]=&i d[]=

What I think both of you need to realize is that this phone is NOT the final build! It will most like be more responsive and better... And there ARE things that this phone will have over the iPhone. A few quick things that come to mind is the 3.2 MP camera, stylus with internal storage, and the capability to use a 16 GB micro SD card... I guess only time will tell how good it actually is, but (no pun ...

Re: When will Alltel get >2.0 MP??
Sep 15, 2008, 9:14 PM
in the General forum

Yeah this is the trend that I am seeing as well and am pretty saddened by it. :( I mean, is it really that hard for a US CDMA network to request that any company that makes >2.0 MP cameras for GSM to make one CDMA??? *shakesHead*

When will Alltel get >2.0 MP??
Sep 15, 2008, 9:21 AM
in the General forum

I have been a long time Alltel customer and have even been a salesman, but I can't believe that Alltel hasn't come out with at least 1 phone that has more than a 2.0 MP camera!! Does anyone know when they might be doing that?? Any info would be greatly appreciated...

in the Nokia N79 forum

Hm... well actually Nokia WOULD send what you're looking for but really Nokia only makes for US markets what the phone companies want them to make as far as specs go... So if you want to blame anyone about not getting the spec'd Nokias that you want blame the PHONE COMPANIES! :wink:

Re: Where does this fit in.
Aug 29, 2008, 1:52 AM

Well it's taking the spot of the N78... so it would fit in exactly where the N78 did ;)

It seems to have come out on May 20th, but I doubt it will be officially sponsored by T-Mobile...

Hm... it says WCDMA so does that mean it will work on American CDMA networks like Verizon, Sprint, Alltel, etc?

They really went over the top. And I am loving it. :D

If that phone works well on the phone end (which I am sure it will) I would definitely be interested if it came to the US market. :D

Re: Mini USB for the Verizon V9m?
Jul 3, 2008, 12:24 AM
in the Motorola RAZR2 V9m forum

If I were you I would seriously think about using a mini usb instead because quite frankly all of the major companies (Moto, Samsung, Nokia, LG) are going to the micro usb slot. So eventually all phones will use the same one, so I don't know why you would want to be using a silly mini usb then...

Also, don't worry about a short circuit. As long as it is the same Voltage (which it is) it doesn't matter the Amperage. :)

Re: touch screen not working?
Jul 3, 2008, 12:20 AM
in the Motorola RAZR2 V9m forum

Ok. Well with the Razr2 you need to press and hold not only until it vibrates, but until it BEEPS. I don't know why this is, but if you hold it until it beeps all of the applications should work. :) Hope this helps!!

Updated Pricing??
Jul 3, 2008, 12:18 AM
in the Motorola RAZR2 V9m forum

I know this phone has been on the market for quite a while now, so does anyone have any info as to when the price for Alltel will drop from the current 199.99 after rebate? Any info on this would be greatly appreciated because I am looking to upgrade my contract within the next month so I would like to know. Thanks!

Or more like it got hit by a red LG Chocolate and a Moto KRZR. lol But it does seem to pull of a decent look nonetheless. :)

I like how you can throw that...

LOL I seriously like how you can get a rugged phone now that isn't a complete brick and still performs well. :) Way to go Sanyo!

Why not Blackberry??

Why didn't they also allow the 8830 to do this as well??

Then tell me why it isn't on their website?? Unless some areas that have U.S. Cellular service under Alltel I'm not sure why they would...

Um... no they don't. Alltel is the ONLY company to carry this atm. If you don't believe me check for yourself: http://www.uscc.com/uscellular/Sil verStream/Pages/b_showphone.html?zip=96006&mk t=605680&tm=0

in the Article: Review: LG Glimmer forum

Not for a while... because even though Verizon just bought Alltel, Alltel still has a few months or so of being the only network with the phone. And, seeing as Verizon doesn't technically own it all until this Fall I think you will just have to wait. :P

in the Motorola W755 forum

ROFL... you obviously haven't been in the business very long or just don't know your stuff. Motorola makes the W lineup as a lower end series which has NEVER and WILL NEVER have revolutionary material. So to say that it is garbage and say that Motorola doesn't know what it's doing is absurd. Is there stock bad? Yes. Is there marketshare depleting? Yes. But Motorola is a company that has been around for quite some time and I wish ...
