And the Winner Is...

The prize goes to all the trolls who love to naysay everything about a carrier or brand they dislike. On the other hand, those of us who use Sprint, either for work or personal, welcome this news because it means better things for us.

If you dislike Sprint or some other brand, here is a novel idea: don't purchase their products or services; it's that simple.

*also shrugs*

2 bands... why not 3 bands... why not 18 BANDS!!!!

Stacking coverage over existing coverage does nothing for Sprint's #1 reason why they will always be sub-par, and that's their overall coverage. No point offering ridiculous speeds if only less than 5% of the population can enjoy it.

All I can say is, since I dropped Sprint for AT&T six months ago, and spouse dropped Sprint for Verizon a year ago, we've never been happier with our cellular services. For us, Sprint was just plain lousy (southern California area), and it is a huge relief to be away from Sprint. As one poster pointed out, Sprint's main problem is its inferior coverage, and I will add, followed closely by it's long and well-known history of over-promising and under-delivering. This is likely more "grandstanding" by Sprint, grasping at straws to try to draw in unwary customers. Too bad the FCC can't just take all of Sprint's spectrum and divvy it up amongst the other carriers, at least all that spectrum would be put to good use by VZ/ATT/T-Mo, rather than th...

Meh *shrugs*

That's great and all, but lets be real here - unless you are standing next to a 2.5Ghz cell site, outdoors, on a 70F sunny day at Noon in a small town where no one has Sprint, you are likely to rarely ever see speeds like that, or even 1/10th that, or even 1/20th that. Basically Sprint can tout all they want this CA-3 and it won't really make any difference unless they did it all on their PCS spectrum where people can get service at least a little bit more than their high end spectrum covered areas.

Has anyone successfully gotten the LG G5 to read text messages out loud

I cannot get it to read the text messages out loud.

I know the settings that are supposed to make this work - they don't!

It should be:


- Sound & Notification

- - Message/call voice notifications - Read caller info and messages out loud ON

- - - Calls - Read caller info out loud (ON or OFF should be ok. I want this OFF, but I have tried it both ways)

- - - Messages - Read sender info out loud ON

- - - - Read messages - Read messages out loud ON

[Note: You can reach the same Message/Call voice notifications menu tree starting from Settings - Accessibility - Vision, but it really is the same menu, changing the settings from either menu changes the same settings as seen both ways.]

I would really be a buyer if the LG G5 SE would be sold in North America with the corresponding LTE bands.
The better price-point would definitely attract myself and others that do not necessarily need an SD 820 but are satisfied with the phone and the features.

Phablet Phase?

I tend to prefer phablets over other smaller phones, the screen is a little on the small side, a 5.7 inch screen would have me jump at it, LG could also cater to the two kinds of users by doing so

Removable Battery

I'm not sure if everyone really understands the simple logic and common sense in regards to removable batteries. People can make excuses for manufacturers eliminating them and for the most part, will rely totally on the sale's pitches that manufacturers use to validate such practice. The bottom line is this:

Regardless of price or premium status, the battery is the weakest link across the board. I have contended all along that a premium device should not be rendered useless just because of a battery issue. Thanks to the industry, it has slowly groomed the consumers to "Accept" the inevitable. What this has done, is add an additional 36 billion dollars in service for handsets within the industry. Are we really this dependant on service cen...
