    I thought you would have to activate it on the flip phone line, then move the device to the other line, otherwise you still risk losing UL data when you activate?

    I'm thinking two iPhones. The current VZW iPhone 4 gets a modest to nil spec bump plus GSM/UMTS (with 1700) to become the iPhone 4S. A new design gets the A5, 8MP cam, 4"+ screen, but will only be...

    We'll probably see iOS 5 get announced at WWDC and then get an A5 powered 3.7-4 inch iPhone 5 with HSPA+/CDMA in September with an LTE model to follow within a year. Most of the rumors either...

    You keep claiming a reduction in services, but you're using an incomplete metric. Something to consider is that your coverage area has significantly increased, network reliability has increased,...

    I don't know what point you're trying to make, and apparently you don't either. You can keep talking in circles, but I'm stepping out of the ring.

    I'm not sure what your message is.

    Example of poor Android handset updates: HTC Hero on Sprint shipped with 1.5/1.6 in Oct 2009. 2.1 update came out and was so buggy, the two people I know with...

    Yeah, I think its poor design to have the glass be the perfectly flat front of the phone. One grain of sand between the glass and another flat surface and you've got a nice big scratch. A lot of...

    I think if it weren't true in at least an appreciable percentage of cases, then Google would not have had to step in. Even in the cases of manufacturers that HAVE provided updates, few have been...

    Mrfnuts covered this VERY well. It means either party can end the agreement at any time. mrfnuts may not be a "legal scholar", but he hit the nail on the head. Reread his post. There shouldn't be...

    I really just wanted to complain about how off topic this thread is now, but anyway:

    No matter what someone says iPhone does and Android doesn't, or vice versa, there's a rebuttal. It's a useless...

    Yup, that's what we're here for. People speculate and pass rumors, and you use common sense and probability to determine which ones are likely.

    It's not customary to announce a product revision...

    Obviously this should be a separate issue from billing and rate plans, but it's my understanding that the old Blue SIMs don't support USIM, and AT&T has had to keep a legacy authentication system in...

    The picture angle makes it difficult to make out on the front facing panels, but the ones on the other sectors look to be the same configuration. Looking at those, the new panel is much wider and...

    The issue is still with the radios--there's just not enough room to include a driver for every band. Right now, they use a separate chipset for quadband GSM (850/900/1800/1900), then a UMTS chipset...

    Most of the radios are multi-chip solutions. Usually a baseband processor where you get support for CDMA, HSPA, LTE, etc, and then separate drivers for frequency bands. Supporting everything is...

    The lack of LTE despite the later release date is a little disappointing. Holding out on 3G on AT&T wasn't such a big deal since they were so slow to deploy coverage, but VZW is really rolling on...

    I ended up switching to Google Voice for my voice mail to gain transcription and access to my voicemail from the computer. It would be nice if VZW got with Google the way Sprint has--they can access...

    850, 1700, 1900 are all just the common names for the US bands. 850 is actually 824-849 paired with 869-894. 1900 is 1850-1910 paired with 1930-1990. 1700 is 1710-1755 paired with 2110-2155.

    I wouldn't pay $5 for snake oil. I would pay $5 for cool technology, but you'd have to do some work to convince me that its cool technology and not snake oil.

    Having said that, "any sufficiently...

    I wonder if the AppleTV will get an upgrade in September too. Running XBMC on my black AppleTV now, and it can't handle 1080p Blu-Ray rips--A CPU/GPU update to match the iPad would be nice.

    I think the wording leaves open the possibility of an iPhone 4 S/GS/etc. The iPhone 5 will probably wait until September though.
