In the otherwise good review article, besides forgetting to mention the extremely handy Direct Talk capability (which no other phones offer) as "bigdaddycrawfish" pointed out, the article also failed to mention Direct Send. Direct Send allows one person to send contact info from one Nextel phone directly to another Nextel phone with one push of the PTT button. Another Nextel exclusive that comes in very handy all the time.
Everyone is talking so much about the iPhone but how comfortable would typing actually be on this phone?? I see Jobs and the Apple CEO doing everything else except for typing a text message. makes me wonder.........
Why would you only want to see what the other person is seeing, but not the other person? You can easily have a true video conferencing phone, yet you don't want manufacturers to have a lens on the inside or at least one that rotates to face the user? And if you turn the phone around so the other person can see you, then you can't see them.. catch 22. Answer me this Cingular.
hs anyone heard of a replacement for the Sammy a990
i wanted to upgrade(verizon) from my a970 to the 990 sammy..but notice on PS's site the 990 is listed as sammy's flagship 2006 model....but I didn't see anything in the coverage about a new flagship model...has anyone heard anything?..thank you...
Maybe I am living in the dark ages here but I happen to think the iPhone is the coolest device I've ever seen. All these complaints have me confused. Is there a better phone out there, either here or in Europe or Asia? If so, please do tell and why. I am ever so curious to know what exists that blows away the iPhone.
I just watched the presentation of the iPhone...that phone is amazing too btw. Apple really over did themselves this time. I have been reading on here for about the past hour trying to catch up with what NEW phones that SPRINT is offering to compete...and I dont see ANYTHING...and its very discouraging after seeing that iPhone in action. Does anyone know of anything sprint plans on releasing to compete with cingular? And who is getting the shine?
I am very intrigued by Nextel and have considered getting service with them a few times now, but I can not force myself to carry around a big ugly phone. These phones make me want to throw up. I can understand that Nextel provides good service, but I guess I am just too shallow for their phones. I mean come on. At least make it bluetooth so I can hide it in my pocket!
We get all upset cause Japan Tokyo ect....is so far ahead of us in technology and then Apple comes out with a phone that puts us in the same rang as most countries with technology on phones and we diss it real bad. I wish the U.S would catch up with all the technology that Japan and Tokyo offer, but the average U.S consumer isnt interested with all the techno stuff thats available so we keep it simple cause we are so scared of having technology in out hands that simplize and unify many different things such as carrying a big ol' wallet with a million cards and cash. As long as its protected from theifs then why are we so scared of it. I wish things were fingerprint access and eye scanner crap I mean come on anybody can steal my name and s... (continues)
don't u just LOVE how the U.S. gets SHAFTED with all the latest and greatest GARBAGE in technology??!! there's SO much better gadgets out there, and this is what they have to offer us, gee...thanks...BUT NO THANKS!!
🤨 it's kind of surprising that it didn't talk about Shine. I've seen and heard some news about it; it's EXTREMELY disappointing that LG's releasing the "BAR TYPE" Shine for US and regular slider type for Europe. I was definitely gonna get it if they were releasing the same version of European one, but I guess not... I seriously need to see the actual model though.
