"Unfortunately, Google Play services has stopped" error message

oh my goodness! i keep getting error message "Unfortunately, Google Play services has stopped" every 5 seconds. i am unable to do much because it keeps popping up in front of whatever you do so im forced to keep clicking "ok". this started happening 2 days ago. ive recently updated my samsung galaxy s5 to android 5.0 lollipop and have had problems since with battery life but the ""Unfortunately, Google Play services has stopped" is the last draw. ive uninstalled google play updates and deleted the cache and then restart phone. it still keeps popping up! i am so upset!

Decent Deal, but..

The costs of the overages on the 2GB tablet is extremely high, Sprint charges PER MB overage, not PER GB overage.

The $100 price plan for both devices, and service is great. But the network quality is horrendous that using the tablet over 2GB likely wont happen at all, and if it does, it will be one sided requests for page refreshes that never happen, exhausting your data plan before you even get usable data to the device. Lets not even mention the data on the phone device itself.

Voice Platform

{ "We built our voice platform so extensively [that] there was never a need for us to tell our customers, 'Oh, our network is not good enough so you need to go on Wi-Fi to complete your call,'" said Shammo..}

Yeah, the same voice platform that is so unpleasant that I'd rather listen to nails on a chalkboard rather than have a call from a Verizon customer.

Earlier today, one of my friends called me on my work landline, and he's on Verizon. His voice had this awful screeching compression to it, it was dreadful. It was like his voice was compressed, then compressed again, and then processed through a low bandpass filter to cut out all the depth and low frequencies of his voice. Just completely terrible call quality.

Verizon's voice ...

When T-Mobile wants to take the burden off its network their network is inferior. When Verizon decides it wants to do the same (and make no mistake about it---they will) it will be because they want to enhance the user experience for all of their customers or some other such rubbish. BURN Evil Red BURN!

Is it just me, or do Verizon and AT&T's announcements that WI-FI calling won't be until 2015 sound like vaporware to anyone else?

VoLTE Between carriers

Will HD calling work between carriers? Or will each carrier's HD calling only work within it's own network? πŸ˜•

Not Impressed.......

I have my window to get a deal on a new phone and won't be wasting it on this phone. Seems like some of the facts in this review are contradictory to other reviews I read, but it is all becoming irrelevant.

I have 8 phones all with Sprint since 1998. As soon as the iPhone6 comes out (some of my family are iPhone users) I'm moving to Verizon.

Had it with Sprint's LTE Coverage and even 3G. I've never received a LTE signal in my own home and I'm surrounded by other carrier signals. I often have to walk outside on the porch to make a phone call. I'm in a developed area outside Columbus Ohio.

I'm going to Verizon period and this phone isn't available for Verizon. Still can't figure out Samsung's silly strategy, but it seems to be...

The service was weirdly similar to Samsung Milk, which just... wait, why did they ever have both?

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.

Battery Life: S5 vs. Note3

Does anyone have any first-hand experience with comparing the battery life between the Note3 and the Galaxy S5?

I'd really appreciate it. I'm trying to decide between the 2 phones since I need to upgrade now (my S4 screen just died).

over in the "Review: Samsung Galaxy S5 for Verizon Wireless" discussion:

No dedicated Menu button.

The review states that there is a Menu button, and a Back button, which is not true. They replaced the dedicated Menu button with a Recent Apps button. As someone who loved having the dedicated Menu button, I think this is quite possibly the worst change Samsung has made on any of thier devices in a very long time. You already had the Recent Apps functionality from holding the home button. I don't know why they decided to deviate, but now I guess we will just have to hope that every single app in existence has its own menu button.

Of course Verizon has bugs in their phones.

For a Post-Paid company who is always last to get the next best thing, the continously load all that bloatware onto their devices and do not do enough beta testing to ensure that the bugs are worked out. As much money a they put out, their tech team should be top notch.
