can i upgrade my sprint phone without paying a ridiculous price?

I know ebay is an option, but I would like to upgrade my phone to the lg rumor touch. I know its not the greatest phone but i wanted to upgrade without paying the smart phone cost and get data on my plan. Also, if i get the data plan would i get an upgrade price. I was just wondering if there’s ways around this at all because by the time people are done bidding on ebay its about $. Thanks

They haven’t been bringing that junk up any more.

But they have screwed up everything on our new contract. They screwed up the order, they screwed up the pricing, they screwed up the plan.. they screwed up everything.

I am so upset, I just want to leave.

We have the LG Rumor Touch and the Samsung Seek.. the Samsung Seek is messing up so it won’t activate. They lied alot to us over the phone. The Seek is missing junk they said it would have, the Rumor Touch is missing stuff the site and box says it will have ( if you go into the store). So we got a different version of the Rumor Touch by Phone then we would have gotten inside the store.

The Seek has a better screen and some Apps that they Rumor is missing. I can’t hook up to any Instant Message services. I’ve sent a couple messages and my friend said they were labled Picture Messages but there aren’t any pictures or attachments.

So tires of dealing with Sprint right now. If you don’t have a Family Plan, look at Virgin Mobile. We are thinking of dropping our contract ( with the 30 day thing) and getting phones from Virgin. They have Unlimited Data, IM, Text, Web starting at 25 dollars but the Rumor Touch is only one color and 150 online. Just for your consideration.

If you are on a 2 year contract with Sprint at 1 year you’ll get discounts to get a new phone.

Is There a Better Touchscreen Smartphone Than the Apple Iphone 3g?

These days it seems almost impossible to go a whole day without hearing about the new Apple iPhone 3G.  With its cutting edge features, it is the touchscreen cell phone that everyone wants to own.  The question is, does it make fiscal sense or even common sense to own one.

 

Why is an Apple iPhone 3G s special?  The Apple iPhone 3G is what is referred to as a touchscreen smartphone.  You can surf the web, make phone calls, and even instant text message to your hearts content all by touching the screen of the phone.  WOW!  Sounds like there’s nothing else like it?  Well, there is.

 

There are a number of other touchscreen smartphones that have features comparable to the Apple iPhone 3G.  And unlike the inflexible iPhone 3G that can only be purchased in the AT&T Wireless Store, the other touchscreen smartphones out can be bought online or at the store front.

 

In this particular articleSearch4cellphonedeals.com will focuses on five different touchsrceen smartphones that are just as sleek and innovative as the Apple iPhone 3G.  The list of phones includes (in no order): the LG Vu, LG Voyager, HTC Touch, Samsung Glyde and the LG Dare. 

 

With any of the touchscreen smartphones in this article, you will have to start a new two-year contract or extend your existing contract in order to get the special prices listed.  Of all the phones covered by search4cellphonedeals.com in this article, the LG Voyager and the HTC Touch are FREE with a new two-year agreement.  The LG Vu is FREE and offers a $49.99 CASH BACK rebate and instant discount with a new two-year contract from AT&T (as of this writing, throughWirefly).  Compare that to what you will pay for an iPhone 3G……$199-$299….you do the math.

 

Two of the Cell Phones, the LG Voyager and the Samsung Glyde, also incorporate slide-out QWERTY keyboards designed for fast instant text messaging.   This may not be a big deal to the some, but if you ask a teenager or even some adults, fast instant text messaging is the most important feature they look for in a cell phone.  Instant text messaging seems to be the preferred choice of communications in most teens, even over talking.

 

All of the cell phones that search4cellphonedeals.com are comparing to the iPhone 3G in this article offer big, beautiful touch displays that allow complete control over your cell phones features.  All of these touchscreen smartphones support a full suite of features such as Facebook, Flckr, Google Maps and YouTube.

 

The following features may be a little more up to date with the newest Apple iPhone 3G versions, but just remember, everyone else is gearing up for their latest releases too.  But as stated earlier, you can only get an Apple iPhone 3G at the AT&T Wireless store (if you can get one, most stores have the iPhone 3G on back order), so you may want to consider one of the other touchscreen smartphones in this article for convenience alone.   

 

When it comes to features, the iPhone is not as cutting edge as you might expect.  All of the touchscreen smartphones mentioned in this article by search4cellphonedeals.com, except for the iPhone, are Bluetooth enabled.  All play MP3s and Acc, but the iPhone does not play WMA like the rest.  All but the iPhone offer photo/digital messaging and voice dialing.  All but the iPhone have memory card slots.  When it comes to speed, only the LG Vu is as slow as the iPhone with a top speed of 1.7 mbps, the rest boast 2.4 mbps.

 

As for features that the iPhone 3G excels in besides price?  The megapixles on the camera are 2, the same as all but the LG Dare that has 3.2.  The iPhone 3G also has double the memory at 16GB. 

 

Now the inevitable question comes, what carriers work with these other touchscreen smartphones?  The LG Vu, like the iPhone works with AT&T Wireless, the LG Voyager with Verizon Wireless, The HTC Touch with Sprint PCS and Alltel, the Samsung Glyde with Verizon Wireless and the LG dare with Verizon Wireless.  So as you can see there is a wide variety of carriers getting on board with the touchscreen smart phone craze.

 

It seems that maybe everyone wants the Apple iPhone 3G because it is a status symbol.  Look at me, I have the new iPhone 3G!  To us at search4cellphonedeals.com this makes no sense.  You can get an equally innovative touchscreen smartphone for a fraction of the cost (or even FREE), and you can get it online if that is your desire.  So really, you may be saying, hey look at me, I spent a fortune on a touchscreen smartphone when I didn’t have too. 

 

At search4cellphonedeals.com, we believe you buy for common sense, not because you have to have the hot new phone.  Remember, today’s hot new phone is next year’s dinosaur.  Now this is not to say that the iPhone 3G is a bad touchscreen smartphone and that you shouldn’t purchase one.  Search4cellphonedeals.com is simply trying to shed some light on the fact that there is an alternative (in fact several) out there that can perform lightning fast instant text messaging and much more.  Sometimes in life, it is better to be a leader and not a follower.

More of the Android Onslaught: Increasing Handset Revenues and Growth
Yesterday, I stated that Android is taking market share away from all of its competitors, and illustrated that Apple is clearly included included in this group (see Empirical Evidence of Android Eating Apple, Literally! ). Today, I would like to demonstrate where that Android growth that is being bled from Apple, Nokia, RIM, etc. is going. The companies that have skillfully adopted Android 2.1/2 …

Android 2.2 Froyo Vs iPhone

Apple’s iPhone and Google’s Android 2.2 Froyo are getting ready for another epic battle. On the first look of it the Android performs faster that iPhone except when the former is enabled for Flash 10.1 plugin. Latest devices from respective titans in the world of smart phones, they can both give unforgettable experiences to the user.

Google, Verizon, and Adobe announced their next wave Android based Motorola Droid device on June 23rd. A day later Apple and AT&T launched iPhone 4. Both appeared almost simultaneously in American and European markets.

Market statistics reveal that Apple has already sold by July, 2010 over 600,000 iPhone 4. However, they suffer from serious ordering problems in United States. On the other hand the one launched by Google and others is a significant upgrading of the popular brand of Motorola, the Android. The battle for the smart phone crown is now virtually on.

New iPhone 4 boasts of some impressive items like the front facing camera, high definition 720p recording of videos, 5 megapixel rear facing cameras, three axis gyroscopes, 960×640 resolution and LED display of 3.5 inches. Above all it has much longer battery life than its predecessors.

Android 2.2 Froyo on the other hand has Droid X technology. It features 4.3 inch display, equal video recording capabilities as iPhone 4, HDMI output and screen resolution of 854×480. Eight megapixel cameras with flash and various other advanced features mark the excellence of the device. It also has the capability of using the Flash Player 10.1 used for the mobile devices.

While both the devices look very impressive, android suffers from one drawback that keeps iPhone 4 a step ahead, is the absence of front facing camera. On the other hand the feature of HTC’s Android based EVO 4G keeps it a step ahead of iPhone 4. That means with pros and cons balanced, one is back to square one in determining which one is better; android or iPhone.

Some of the features of Android 2.2 Froyo are new home screen widget tips; and it also has dedicated shortcuts. Improved security, numeric pin, alpha-numeric options for unlocking, remote wipe, exchange calendars, auto discovery, exchange account, global address lists, gallery, camera onscreen buttons, and LED flash enabled for Camcorder. Multi lingual uses can add several languages with auto suggest dictionary feature. Kernel memory management booster improves the memory by 20x.

Apple brings up new nice hardware most of the times. On the other hand a new Android device makes its appearance in the market every time. Apple has lagged behind in keeping pace with Androids in terms of multiplicity of devices.

When it comes to sales as well as market penetration, it seems presently iPhone4 is way ahead. Apple occupies about 28% of the mobile phone market in United States. In contrast the Androids including Android 2.2 Foryo occupy only 9% of the market. Both have grown by around 2% over the years and also by that rate during the first quarters of 2010.

Thus iPhone still has much larger share of the market but Android is coming up very strong and is likely to give them a run for their money in near future.

Verizon Question: Windows Mobile smart phone vs LG Voyager / Dare?

Which one would you go with and why? My old phone broke and I buy a new and was wondering if the Windows Mobile OS is pretty cool, or should I go with the Voyager or Dare only? I've always liked LG phones with Verizon is why I ask. Should I go to a leap of faith with this Windows Smartphones? If not, I should dare or with the Voyager? Who can compare to what you can and not each with? Pros / cons, perhaps? Neither come cheap.

Stay away from Windows Mobile. Everyone knows I used to hate it. It's unstable, crashes from, and to get hard to do simple tasks. Everyone had to play with Windows Mobile, which is on my BlackBerry. The Voyager is a good phone, but there is to do not so much as a true "smart phone" is.

BlackBerry joins the audience with new Smart Phone and software overhaul its new smartphone, called the BlackBerry With Torch, Research In Motion joins the rank of other Phones by offering a fully featured web browser, an integrated market and social apps App.

What is the meaning of a "Smart Phone" in comparison to a 3G phone if you only use for the interview?

Ok, I'm not quite so hi-tech and I am confused about the advantages of a "Smart Phone" in comparison to a normal phone with 3G Internet, Bluetooth, etc. when I really only about it for (some speak SMS), and perhaps random surfing the Internet here and there (not "work related browsing, googling just random '' around). The only other feature I use on my mobile phone is the Bluetooth-hook that up to my car (my car is factory fitted Bluetooth, for while talking about the ride is illegal here in California). If my phone has a QWERTY keyboard, 3G Internet, and hook up to my car's Blue Tooth, is it a point to have someone like me a "smart phone"?

You are correct. You do not need a smartphone.

Pros and cons- AT&T vs. Verizon?

I’m currently an AT&T customer. I would like to purchase a smart phone (unsure of which brand, type or provider yet). My AT&T contract expires in a few months, and I’m considering switching to Verizon because I’ve heard from many people that AT&T’s 3G network doesn’t work very well because there is so much traffic on it. However, I have an old ipod that I use all the time, so I would really like to upgrade to an iphone. I also hear that Verizon costs more (on average, month to month).

Has anyone ever swtiched from Verizon to AT&T or back? Any tips? Thanks!

It all depends on where you reside and where you like to travel to, if your area has good 3G coverage from AT&T then I would stick with AT&T and go with the iPhone (best Smartphone out there) if your coverage is only Edge and Verizon’s is 3G then I would go with Verizon and look at the HTC Droid Eris or the Palm Pre Plus. When your in good coverage both services are about the same,AT&T sometimes will be a little faster sometimes it’s not.

I've got Windows Pocket PC PDA that I have for reading ebooks, and web surfing in wifi zones. His first worn out and I need to replace it, but PDAs seem to go out style and it looks like I will need to get a smartphone instead.

Any recommendations?
