My store finally got the Moto X in! I got to pick it up and play with it. It's a very nice phone! But you know what?

I'm swayed away. After the launch of the Galaxy Note 3, it seems to do more of what I need and want my phone to do.

I multitask and I need a phone that keeps up with me. The Dynamic Notifications app in Play will do what Active Notifications does... but then, Note 3 comes with S-window. I might not even need it.

Other than "OK Google Now", the Note 3 does what I need a phone to do. Plus it will be available for pre-order tomorrow. I may have to wait until November to get the X I need.

Has anyone used AWS or any type of NoSQL products (MongoDB, couchDB, etc)?

Looks like the Nexus 5 has gone through the FCC. Snapdragon 800 processor, 4.96 inch screen, 2300mAh battery, supports all bands for AT&T, T-Mobile and SPRINT. No Verizon.

Jhawk, that utterly fails to surprise me. The closest thing to a Nexus Verizon ever got was the Gnex, and look at that taffy pull. No doubt they really don't want anything that is unlockable, rootable and ROMmable. So no Nexus 5 on Verizon? 'Scuse me if I'm not shocked.

I know on T-Mobile they are popular. The guy there said it was the best selling phone for a while. Verizon... I never liked them that much, just my opinion.

Well, they have to allow the new Nexus 7 on their network. But yeah, but what does surprise me is the support of Sprint bands, considering Sprint didn't exactly play nice with Gnex updates either.

Yeah I didn't include tablets. That's just money in the bank for Verizon, though.

I'll be trading my Nexus 4 to Best Buy for sure. The new Nexus, if all the rumors hold true, will be a tiny bit smaller with a bigger screen and I won't have to hack LTE for every ROM flash, on T-Mobile? I'm in!

Update #2: This device may indeed support Verizon once it rolls out Band 4 LTE (1700Mhz) later this year.

But, if we do stay with Verizon, I'm slightly more compelled to go with a Note 3 and just lose our unlimited (no way I'm paying for unsubsidized).

Anti, ever the optimist

Happy Friday to all you worker type folks! I'm waiting patiently for the Note 3 pre-order to go live! Who else is trading in their Gnex for this gorgeous monster phone?

I have thought about replying to your post, Chief, but realized any post referencing size will be "that's what she said" fodder and decided against it.

The only issue is that the c block regulations don't apply to the band 4 lte, only the band 13 lte. Plus it would still have to have a cdma radio...

I don't know all the details, but The Verge says the Nexus 5 has CDMA. I'm sure I'm understanding that wrong somehow.

S4gru uncovered the FCC filings and the larger tech blogs have been reporting based on that

Sprint, ATT and T-Mobile supported

Codename hammerhead- which I love

Pull the trigger, Chief!

I just pre-ordered the Note 3 in white. I was able to transfer my upgrade to the dumb phone, but as soon as I get it, I will activate it on my line and continue to pay the dumb phone bill with no increase in cost.

I was thinking of going with the G2, but the N3 has everything I need.

I can't wait!!

Han I'm afraid that what you did isn't going to work. Transferring your upgrade from the unlimited line to the dumb phone line will cause you to lose unlimited when you activate the phone. Also if you activate it on the unlimited line after transferring it to the dumbphone line, without activating it on the dumbphone line first, they will charge you for the full price of the phone.

Are you sure about this? When I opened a new line with the iPhone 5, after I activated it, I switched it to my unlimited data line, and activated a dumb phone on the new line, and everything was fine.

Is it because I transferred my upgrade? I thought this musical-chairs thing would work.

I read somewhere that just swapping out the SIM card from the unlimited line to the new phone is enough.

I'm not sure what to think...

When I get it in, I may just go to the store and explain my exact intentions and see if it can be done. If not, I may just buy it outright.

Gulp.

<------ One happy Chief

Got my confirmation number! Pre-ordered the Note 3 full retail for a launch date of 10/10.

That gives me time to find all the accessories I want. Only one problem:

Darling Bride saw the videos of the Note 3 and now SHE wants one too! In coral pink!

Her argument? I won't be able to say "try to figure it out, Babe, I don't have your phone model, how would I know?" when she has a question about it! Now I have to teach her everything I learn about the Note 3 as I learn it... and if she has a question about how to do something (which I expect to get for the next, oh, forever) I'll have no defense.

She told me that once I received the preorder phone, when I call to activate it, they would activate it on my unlimited data line, it wouldn't affect my unlimited, and that the dumb phone line would be put on another 2 year contract.

So go figure.

I will call when I get it. I will explain my exact intentions. If it doesn't work, I'll just return it and buy it at full retail.

Gulp.

Well, Wyndslash, if you go back through the 30,000 posts in this thread you would probably count at least 1500 posts containing little more than "that's what she said". Usually following an otherwise unremarkable post about a phone's size or shape. Particularly size.

Example: discussion about the Note II and phones in general...

Post: "Wow, this is the biggest one I've ever had!"

Then those four words turn an innocuous post into an innuendo immediately. Thus the rather disturbed mindset of several of the regulars in here

Hope this helps...

Yep, that post can go wrong in so many ways. BTW, this is still a family-friendly forum right?

Han,

If it was the dumbphone that was due for an upgrade, you will be fine.

But your post made it seem like the upgrade came from your unlimited line originally, but you transferred it to the dumbphone line. That won't work. You can never use the upgrade on the unlimited line, not directly, not by transferring it. It will kill off your unlimited data.

It was popularized by the Johnny Carson Show 40+ years ago and that was the joke.

It's every bit as funny today as it was then - not at all.

But as long as it gets more traction by spreading it out for another gender, that'll be even better.
