Who Let This Happen?

As being an old phone dog myself and being in the wireless industry for a better portion of my adult life... I remember when 99.9% of cell phones were "candy bar" style and Motorola attempted to claim that the flip form and factor was their patent ... The absurdity of this claim was laughed out of litigation and was never taken seriously by the courts.... And now this happens?

Why Apple winning is good news for Android

1) Handset makers who are actually innovating get more attention. Aside from Samsung, every other handset manufacturer is suffering, yet they're the ones spending a lot of money on R&D to distinguish themselves.

2) Samsung will have to improve the quality of their devices, as it's no longer acceptable to make creaky cheap plastic knockoffs of the iPhone, slap on a iOS-mixed-with-typical-Samsung-bad-taste skin, and call it 'obvious.'

2) Android, which has already been veering away from iOS for a couple years now in terms of UI conventions, now has to remain fully committed to its own course (which I think it will be much stronger for.) Think about how much better 'Holo' apps looks now than the cruddy ones we saw back 2 years ago.

Screen unlocks when receive a call

When I receive a phone call, my phone automatically unlocks the screen. This is a problem for several reasons, but the biggest problem is that my no-led app doesn't work because when the screen unlocks the app thinks that I've seen the missed call and doesn't show that I've missed a call. Is there a setting that's not set right or is there a problem with my phone?

over in the "U.S. Cellular Refreshes Plan Pricing" discussion:

US Cellular has misleading info on its website....

I decided to take a look at their new prepaid plans on its website, and I ran across something that was interesting to me. It says:

"Every Plan Includes:
Call Waiting
Caller ID
Three-Way Calling
Voice Mail
Nationwide Long Distance
International Dialing
International Text Messaging
My Contacts Backup"

Being that I am looking for a cheaper way to call internationally, this caught my attention. This implies that international dialing and text messaging are unlimited and free (with the plans), just like call waiting, caller id, nationwide long distance, voice mail, etc.

To be sure, I did a web chat with a US Cellular associate. At first, he did not even know it said this, and when he saw it, he said that unlimited internatio...

It's about *%^& time!

But, like always, I'll wait a few weeks before updating mine.

I'm not interested in beta testing a new firmware build, no matter how much I have the 2.1 I'm running.

Chrome-to-Phone, here I come!

Video out capabilities?

does any one know if the Mesmerize (U.S. Cellular) has a video out function, or if there is an app out there that i could use to watch the videos on my phone on my TV? My TV has a usb port on the back, and i can't seem to figure out if i can actually hook my phone up to it and have a viable video playback. Thanks.

Recommend arooting application for fascinate?

I researched some on the internet. There seem to be a lot to chose from.

Which one is the best though? And the easiest? Will I have to hook my phone up to my lap top to root it? And how long does it usually take to root a phone?

My reg. Internet is slow and my lap top is old.

Thank you,

Using z4root to gain root access to mesmerize, and other questions

Hi all, great forum! I am a little confused and i am hoping someone can help. I had been reading on adroidforums.com that z4root was the easiest/safest way to root a Galaxy S, and just want to double check something. When i went-a-hunting for the z4root.apk (its not in the marketplace anymore), i found it, and many references to how easy it was to use it to root your Fascinate with Froyo. Are there more than one version of z4root? I dont have a lot of interest in risking a 2.2. upgrade, i will just wait with the rest of the world for US "Snaillular" to release Froyo*. Can anyone email me or point me to the version that they have seen work on a 2.1 Mesmerize? Thanks a bunch! I also have some other general questions.

1) I just got this ...

Fascinate update

I got mine and I am just glad that I have a calander that works now. I have not and have no plans to "root"the phone. I am very pleased and happy with the update. It is not 2.2 it is a "bug" fix.

Bloatware Alert

Yes, I'm sure Verizon wants to push more bloatware and update their current bloatware. I'm sure there's not many fixes or updates to the phone(s).
