    Oh and on a side note, the GNote 2 coming to all carriers is awesome news if true.

    Reviews on the Atrix HD don't give it high marks for the screen or camera. :(

    I'm concerned that may apply to the new Q.

    The Note really performs, looking forward to the Note 2.

    The Note 2 will be the phone for phablet fans and people who just can't get enough screen time in thier hands. I can't wait.

    I've seen mixed revies on the screen and camera, EM. Which bad reviews did you read/watch? I'd like to take a look.

    Doh...LOL...it would've been a pass for me anyway, but it's a definite pass if that's the case. Any of the tablet plans, connected to the providers, suck!

    You're right. Strange dimensions.

    Maybe it was meant more-so to compete with the Galaxy Note 2? They already released the Viper earlier in the summer, so this could be the Sprint version of the Optimus Vu (just slightly smaller). Just throwing out theories.

    Unfortunately it seems Verizon has gotten so big they can manipulate manufacturers and give the absolute worst customer service and still make money... for now. If they keep raising prices and not caring about customer service at all they will fall.

    As long as Sprint does what it takes to maintain unlimited data they will be the #1 carrier in a few years thanks to their customer service.

    I'm not so sure about that. Their speeds are horrible compared to the other big two and even tmobile is stepping things up.

    Throw in sprints money problems during the lte rollout and things could get messy quickly

    Sprints "money problems" have been way overstated/embellished ....

    The lte rollout is costing them money. That is all.

    They would have to really screw the pooch to jack this up.

    The rollout is going better than planned from what I see. By this time next year everyone will be laughing over those "money problem" articles. (most already are)

    Sprint finances and lte rollouts need to be discussed in the other thread, thanks. :)

    Yup, both have cellular data connectivity

    Also, this deal is for business accounts only


    Just read that info above on the new LG and that is great news. It may be the rumored phablet they were working on. There have been pics floating around the Note forums of what it should look like

    I loved my LG 3d phone on art and have the Viper for my son. Have never understood the bad rep everyone gives them...

    really?

    that leads me to think... how bad did they plan it?
    because I am not impressed! i am in Dallas/Ft Worth area.
    and 3G is still down in the trash.

    must mean marketing plan... start it .. market it as a success.. if X% believes it and get more customers and sell more LTE phones because of so called rollout... then YEAH! success!

    Its a roll out with completion scheduled for November.

    There are a lot of times I wish you guys had access to what I do lol. There are an average of 10 towers going live weekly, and as I have mentioned, from strictly a consumer standpoint it is progressing exactly how Atts roll out did. Where do you guys think I went when I left the Evo lol.

    Today's "test of the day" coming soon :)
    Getting even better coverage at the house now.

    I hope that is only 10 towers weekly in each market.

    If it is 10 towers weekly total, and sprint is going to upgrade 38000 towers, that will take 3800 weeks or 73 years.

    If they are going to finish the upgrade by Jan 2015 they need to have 304 towers go live each week.

    Dan and I live in Dallas. The reference was to this market.

    Each market has its own schedule. Some over halfway completed now.


    Early Mon I did not realize which thread we were in... feel free to move to correct thread

    Just to be clear, if one is out of contract now looking for a new phone sometime before October, the best choices would be the Galaxy S3, Photon Q, iphone 5 (yeah yeah).... anything else on the rumor mill I'm missing?
