    Up for my new every 2 with T-Mo. What to do, what to do?

    Love T-mobile... and now they have LTE in my area. My note 2 has been blazin fast on their network and I'm paying FAR less than my friends with Verizon and crap

    Any Android people go to the iphone 5?

    Anecdotally, from what I've both seen and read, it's generally that iPhone users move to Android if they do make a switch. Android seems to either stick around or jump to WP. People new to smartphones and/or leaving Blackberry often take on Apple first, but rarely will you hear people go from...

    Apple Maps... Houston we have a problem

    The thing is, it being a very non-Apple move needs to raise the fact that the stupid "it just works" thing from Apple needs to GTFO from the internet. Also, people are a bit peeved that the entire move from Apple seems more to d!ck over Google than to provide customers the best experience...

    Thinking of getting a Galaxy SIII. Who has the best data plan ?

    Unlocking T-Mobile isn't that hard either. Just call them up, say you're traveling overseas for a bit of time, and you'd like the unlock code. Presto. Not like @$$hole AT&T who hesitates to unlock the phone even after your contract is up

    Thinking of getting a Galaxy SIII. Who has the best data plan ?

    Check with the actual wireless center there, it should still be on sale through them. Or you can check Wal Mart as well

    Heh, enjoy the new LTE network speeds once all those shiny new iPhone 5's with LTE show up

    Thinking of getting a Galaxy SIII. Who has the best data plan ?

    A lot of the issues with T-Mobile is plain FUD. Yes, their coverage can be shoddier than VZW in rural areas... but guess what T-Mobile branded phones offer? Wi-Fi calling. You connect to a Wi-Fi router, and you can operate your phone through the router as if you had reception. Funny being up in...

    Thinking of getting a Galaxy SIII. Who has the best data plan ?

    T-Mobile is by far the best Currently paying $74.99/mo with unlimited talk, text, 5GB of data at 4G speeds (upwards of 10+ Mbps, more than most people ever need) + WiFi hotspot. Get the value plan if you want that rate ($94.99/mo otherwise on classic 2 year plan) Got the S3 at Costco too for...

    Galaxy S3 delay... anyone else have luck or updates?

    What colors have people been ordering? Seems like Blue is the most readily available color right now, but no idea what else people are rocking

    S3 review US reviews

    LTE is in my market so it should be a step up from AT&T HSPA+ which isn't as good in this area, though I've gotten used to just toggling the radios if drain is a problem... hopefully they have a widget for this That said, I don't know what people are doing asking for 20Mbps+ speeds since...

    S3 review US reviews

    Yeah, I read the xda-developers thread on what you did, and it sounds like an option. I agree that HSPA+ and LTE for the most part isn't a huge difference at this point in the game, though that might change depending on how their future deployment goes An alternative to going AT&T, if one...

    S3 review US reviews

    Interesting. How do you do voice and text messaging? Are they on the same plan?

    S3 review US reviews

    What's the $10 a month unlimited data plan? I would actually have it the other way around... the Evo 4G LTE has a micro SD slot and camera shutter button to go along with a beefier battery (important w/o removable battery imo)
  15. Z

    Where are the US GS3 reviews?

    You can always toggle off LTE if you want, of course - but HSPA+ is plenty for the majority of what you will browse on anyways. LTE I would use just for streaming/tethering

    Where are the US GS3 reviews?

    That's the general consensus I've seen Great hardware and performance, removable battery, great camera and screen, etc. but TouchWiz needs to go Nothing a ROM can't fix of course ;)

    Where are the US GS3 reviews?

    AT&T is probably most compatible... its radios work with most 3G networks in the world, and potentially some LTE ones as well. Just needs to be unlocked Verizon is supposedly allowing the phone to be 'software' unlocked to roam on foreign 3G networks. Apparently the LTE radio defaults to GSM...
  18. Z

    Where are the US GS3 reviews?

    Yeah, those prices are ridiculous - especially for a phone with no LTE radio when all the competitors do You can get a SGS3 for $189.99 at Amazon Wireless for new AT&T accounts - $149.99 for upgrades
  19. Z

    To Pre-Order or not?

    AT&T also has a 30 day return window, which is pretty generous considering all the other carriers are like 14 days now My old phone is literally falling apart so I'm willing to give it a roll

    Will longer iphone screen be a big deal?

    It's like computer monitors - once you go big, it's almost impossible to go back. After switching to the EVO 4G a few years ago, after the initial few days getting used to it - I simply can't go back to anything smaller. And YES - even on big phones, you can use one hand to handle all...

    Intel 320 vs 510 series

    Thanks! Exactly what I was looking for I was debating between these SSDs for my new notebook as a boot/application/games drive, and it supports SATA 3, but it doesn't appear that paying the premium may be worth it

    Intel 320 vs 510 series

    So as I understand it, the Intel 510 and the Crucial m4 are pretty similar, minus the issue of 34nm vs 25nm? Where will performance be noticeable on a 510 vs. 320 when SATA 3 is involved? I understand that real world loading of OS and apps won't be too obvious

    Alienware M18X is here...@&^%!@&$%

    Why no Atom HTPC boards?

    Agreed, go Zacate and don't look back. No reason to do Atom anything at this point

    Asus E35M1-I DELUXE AMD Fusion

    They've been on sale but have been pulled/discontinued. No idea why - possible revisions, sold out, or whatever. Some actually say possibly because components from Japan are in short supply so they're temporarily out. Been looking for this as well, bad timing :(

    Lian Li PC- Q7 itx case.

    Thanks for the feedback guys. This sounds like the perfect setup to get I'm debating between Zacate and Llano. I was so close to pulling the trigger on Zacate, but now that I've heard that Llano is shipping and will be out a lot sooner than expected, I might hold off and see how Llano does and...

    Zacate HTPC questions

    Thanks for the info I was looking at Zacate for my HTPC build, but with Llano already shipping apparently, and since I'm in no rush to buy, I might just go w/ Llano if they come in mini-ITX form. The improved GPU will help since I do like playing indie/older games, and while Zacate would do...

    Lian Li PC- Q7 itx case.

    I am rebuilding my HTPC and have a Antec Earthwatts 380W PSU laying around, and a standard 5.25" blu-ray drive While looking around at the possible cases for a mini-ITX (zacate most likely) build, I noticed that most cases that can fit a standard optical drive come with some pretty shoddy PSU's...

    This is why GTX590s blow up. Infrared thermography: GTX590 vs HD6990

    Pretty much my sentiments. There was no way NVIDIA was going to compete against AMD in the dual GPU realm without making serious sacrifices, given that the AMD cards had a big thermal and power advantage. And the NVIDIA GPUs cant be cheap either, so it looks like they skimmed somewhere to keep...

    ASUS GeForce GTX 590 Video Card Review @ [H]

    The card feels like it was slapped together at the last minute... using software to protect hardware is just facepalm worthy
