Considered this for my son...

..until I saw they were all 16GB. Can get an unlocked refurbished 64GB 5s for 279.99 on Groupon. 16GB is almost useless.

A Great First Effort, But......

Thank you for bringing cell phones and hearing aids together in everyday life! On a professional level I'm thrilled. HOWEVER, I've a number of questions/comments:

1. T-Coils have been around for decades and have never used a "wire" that I'm aware. I've never heard of anyone ever having a problem flipping a t-coil switch.

2. Needing to 'fiddle'with a hearing aid is usually due to user error.... not too different from cell phones, lol.

3. Equating a "good" hearing aid with being "extremely tiny and essentially invisible" is like saying that cell phone A has better battery life than cell phone B simply because A's battery is physically larger. ??? Exactly, it doesn't make any sense.

4. I believe that the heavy hitters of the hearing...

iOS8 iPad support

For sure iOS8 is available for the iPad2. I really didn't think it would still be getting the love from Apple.

Who likes the iPhone 5S?

Hello everyone. I am looking at getting either the iPhone 5S or the 5C and I would like the opinion of those who own the 5S. Do you like it? I am not a business person, nor am I a photographer. I want to have an iPhone that will take the most current operating system update, has a good camera that I can take quick pictures with, can surf the internet, is fast, and has good call quality. I have AT&T Wireless and I know that AT&T carries it. Is the iPhone 5C worth the money?

Framily = Expensive

What has happened to you, Sprint? Once upon a time, you had the best prices in the industry. Nobody minded much that your network was slow or that most of your coverage was roaming. Your "new network" was merely a belated rollout of 4G.

160 bucks per month for four lines with one gig of data - really? You have rocks in your collective head if you think the wireless masses will migrate to you. Verizon is way better and T-Mobile is way cheaper. Get a clue!

Can the Verizon Wireless iPhone 5S and 5C work on AT&T and T-Mobile?

Hello everyone. I have been reading that the Verizon Wireless version of the iPhone 5S and 5C can and do work on AT&T Wireless and T-Mobile. Is this true? If so, how?

I'd be more impressed if they started rolling out Band 5 850 and Band 2 1900 LTE in addition to the Band 4 AWS. It'd save their crews a couple more trips out to the towers.

Maybe when those two are complete, they'll be calling it XXX-LTE.

Does ST throttle the speed? Or is it limited to 8mbps like Aio?

Yuck! Why would I ever want to integrate my vehicle with Apple Maps. Google Maps integration is the only thing that even makes sense. You can take your proprietary crap and shove it Apple. So, can any auto manufacturers who wants to shove this crap down my throat. Support an open platform that allows me to bring a device of my choosing or lose my business, plain and simple.

Open Standard

I don't get why Car manufactures want to tie their cars infotainment center to one mobile OS, because cars last 20+ years. In 20 years that infotainment center could be useless because iOS is dead, or iOS has change so much it can't or wont support it. Heck even in 10 or 5 years from know that field could be completely different and then the infotainment center is dead. Why not develop a open standard infotainment center that works with all phones?

For example, develop their infotainment center to work with all phones, via bluetooth because that's one things all phones have from feature phones all the way to high end smartphones. Then add features to work with smartphones via an app that people can download and then release the app on ...

This is an integration feature for iPhone users, not a replacement for in-car infotainment

In other words, this is a feature to consistently integrate the iPhone with various infotainment systems instead of each manufacturer taking bits and pieces of iOS navigation and trying to work it into the universally terrible in-car infotainment systems.

If you want to know why not Android, it's because Google hasn't developed it yet (also because manufacturers are probably lobbying for their own integrated feature set. Looking at you, Samsung.)

If you want to know why so many automakers would focus on implementing this, well, it's not exactly rocket surgery.

why not Google wallet

I use Google wallet instead because when I travel I can leave my debit and credit cards at home and just taked my Google wallet card which I can disabled from my phone. I can also use my phone if I can so I find it more convenient, than this Isis program.

Or you can get a Windows Mobile device and get Microsoft Office for free

Nokia Lumia 920, 1020, 1520 or even the new tablet the Nokia Lumia 2520 all have Office preloaded.

Or if you want a true iPad killer the Dell Venue 8 Pro is an 8" tablet that runs full Windows 8, meaning you can install any desktop, laptop app and you are not stuck just to the app store. Plus it comes with Microsoft Office preloaded for $299.
