    IIRC, ATTWS only had 1900MHz in that area, so they had to build it for PCS from the get go. ISTR VZW and Alltel were the AMPS licensees in most of AZ. I forget which VZW predecessor company served...

    Which is why we all get a say in how it is used through our government.

    Either view is equally correct. The handset and the network work together to make the magic happen. Yes, the network could, and should, be improved. As with the handset.

    I'm fairly comfortable with my import GNex. I'm not sure I would be so comfortable with the US version given at&t's history of eventually sweeping for Nexuses. (Nexii?)

    wap.cingular is good for up to 7500kbps in my experience. Maybe faster; my signal strength isn't generally anything to write home about. (nor complain about, just middling)

    I'm not terribly interested in rehashing the iP4's problems, but it wasn't made up. If you have to use a case to avoid grounding the antenna, that's a serious design flaw, and one that has...

    Please tell me more. Your law degree from L&O U has obviously left you well prepared for litigation.

    Wow, you have bad luck picking phones. Out of that list, unless the cheap GoPhone is an old Nokia candybar, you chose six phones that are not considered to have good reception. That's not to say that...

    I suspect it's a form factor thing. Nokia's high end camera modules are too thick to fit in a Lumia 900. You'll note the 808 looks like some sort of whale. The N8 was a great looking phone, but again...

    Seriously, try another phone. Preferably a Nokia or Motorola if you're picking blindly. I'm lucky in that I have good coverage where I go, so I don't have to pick phones primarily on their RF...

    -80dBm is not "terrible in building coverage" on any planet I've ever inhabited. With that signal strength you should get perfectly good HSPA speed. Hell, -67dBm is pretty good even for outdoor...

    So you're not on present pricing. at&t used to have better deals, as I'm sure you've noticed. ;)



    Unfortunate for you, in the sense that it's nice to have more options rather than fewer. T-Mo...

    Nope, I've seen up to 7500kbps.

    If your parents used more than just a smidge of data, it would be cheaper to buy them T-Mobile prepaid plans. The tax structure ensures it in many states. Even without, you'd save almost $1700 on...

    The iPhone, having been purchased previously, is a sunk cost. It has zero bearing on what someone will pay going forward, presuming they are already out of contract. If they are considering the...

    I've been using MEdia Works with smartphones since 2005 or so. I'm not terribly concerned. However, I've got a GNex from somewhere in Samsung's EMA region, so I seriously doubt it'll get swept. Were...

    Hi, my name is nobody. I get those speeds on my N900. Good thing, too, since it only supports T-Mo and Euro UMTS bands. Voice calls are ****, though. They drop all the time and the network often...

    It's called 'one more thing to lose.' And as I mentioned, it's a pain in the *** when you can't get a microsim when you're traveling. You try asking Orange Dominicana for a microsim when you're not...

    My N900 is already fast enough, (and good enough in most other ways) it just lacks the memory to run Mappero, gpsrecorder, and run the camera at the same time. It works, but it lags the UI to nothing...

    I'll probably buy whatever MeeGo phone Nokia puts out if it's any good, but it'll almost certainly be my last Nokia if they stick to this WM7 idiocy. Beyond that, WebOS or Android. Most likely WebOS,...

    Hi there. My name is retarded.

    You might not know this, but 3G is often faster than the WiFi at many hotspots. I was at a Starbucks the other day getting about 800Kbps. I switched over to my...

    EDGE shouldn't, but plain GPRS absolutely will. Period. In GPRS, once the encoding scheme is selected for a given packet (I believe this is done by the SGSN), it can't be changed, so if you move away...
