    As i find myself doing more of the usual computer chores(including at work) on smartphone, especially due to moving around locations a lot, whatever greases those wheels just becomes very tempting.

    I remember the same being said about the typewriter vs personal memo & fountain pen...long, long ago, in a galaxy far, far away....

    and as i moved from planet to planet thru the light years, cops questioning why i needed to carry around a beeper, then a cellphone...please show some ID....

    And there, i just aged myself-- you young 'whippersnapper' you. ;)

    I also remember having a NEXTEL back in 2004ish when you had to pass a credit check in order to get one. If you DIDNT pass the credit check you had to pay a 500 dollar deposit. And THEN the good nextel phones were 500-600 bucks. But boy I loved my Nextel. Chirp Chirp

    Exactly right. I agree totally. I wanted a VERY GOOD, even a GREAT phone, with speeds no slower than Metro's LTE and low monthly payments ($40 - $50 tops). I was willing to pay money for the phone. I got tired of waiting, so I bought TWO Galaxy Nexus with 4.1.1 for me and my wife and switched to Straight Talk. $45 + couple dollars a month in taxes -- LESS than $50 per month. But for the two phones I spent about $800. (Now from Google Play they are $350 + shipping and tax = $382. But one I bought off eBay new, so the price was higher.) That's $800 MetroPCS lost.

    Here's the analogy. Chevy makes Corvettes, which are expensive sports cars. But GM sells LOTS more Chevy Malibus than Chevy Corvettes.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    However GM/Chevrolet recognizes they NEED something like the Corvette for the people who want a higher end fast car. Or for men to drool over. Having the Corvette sports car RAISES then entire brand visibilty of the company. Metro needs at least one kick butt, fantastic phone as the brand leader for people to desire. Some kind of phone that brings people into the stores. Sure Metro may sell more Huawei phones, but people aren't demanding more Huaweis.

    I was a Metro customer for a dozen years, but they lost me.

    I just got so tired of waiting. They promised us 5 or 6 LTE Androids in 2011 and only gave us 2. One of the two was the decent LTE LG Esteem, which I got -- but I kept waiting for something even better before upgrading my wife's LG Optimus M. (Even the Esteem was a weaker version of Verizon's LG Revolution with 1/4 the internal memory.) My wife wanted a good phone, and I didn't want to get yet another Gingerbread with ICS and now Jelly Bean out. Where ARE the ICS/Jelly Bean dual core phone PHONES? :mad:

    So, went to Straight Talk and speeds are good. The phones we have are GREAT. Now this isn't "regular" Straight Talk, with the crapp bargain bin phones. This is Bring-Your-Own-Phone Straight Talk. ANY sim card phone is eligible. So, two Galaxy Nexus with 4.1.1 Jelly Bean and HSPA+ speeds.

    if the s3 comes with these specs:
    Samsung Galaxy S III Sprint specs

    your esteem is toast


    my first phone was an ericcson on ATT which was a 256 color phone i paid $200 for i think. it allowed you to make your own ringtones but overall it was a piece of schyt and barely worked in my house or anywhere else. ATT sucked and it still does.

    I had one of those. :D I got my first cell phone in '96 on AT & T. Could only make calls and hear voice mail. I can't remember if I could save numbers into a phone book of any sort. It was a nokia as well, but can't now remember what it looked like. :)

    My first phone was a Nokia.. Prepaid(Tracfone). Went on to an LG Flip phone. Don't know the name of the phone though, but it was Verizon. After that broke I got a hand me down motorola. I swear that phone was the best phone I had(until I got the ascend then the esteem lol). My dad gave it to me. It had scratches on the back and had been dropped plenty of occasions. I liked it cause it was slender and it fit well in my pocket
