    what we may have later in FEB. and March , when we usually get our worst weather in Winter.

    We have had quite warm temps Christmas week, I've had to run the AC..
    we have crazy temps all year round now it seems.
    Good to hear you are doing well LPt! We're lucky if we make it up to 32 degrees this time of year. Sounds like we are going to get some below 0 temps this week. On the bright side of things, I'll be out doing some ice fishing on my favorite lake soon.

    Hi all. Just came across this deal in the online MS Store. I'm understanding just for today it is buy a Nokia Lumia 1520 AT&T phone on contract and get a Lumia 520 no-contract phone for free. That's a deal if you want to get one for yourself and your wife or other family member or give one as a gift. Microsoft Store - Product Information

    Happy Holiday.

    I love my Nokia Lumia 920 and I've had it for a year. Once my AT&T contract is up (November 2014), I'll switch to Verizon and get a new Nokia phone. My wife and daughter's phones (HTC Inspires) are up in March of 2014 and they will also get Nokia phones on Verizon. AT&T has been a completely unpleasant experience for us due to poor coverage. Just my experience....

    Oh? Sorry to hear that, Art. I haven't run into any problems as of yet. It may be that I live around the Big Windy. I haven't been traveling with it yet either, so we'll see.

    I would have stayed with Vz, but they didn't offer the 1520. I also needed to buy out of the contract for my daughter bought herself an iPhone.

    I see the government is clamping down on these carriers to unlock the phones. Hopefully they will. If we run into problems we'll be able to switch at any time.

    I watched a big broo haaawww on CSPAN yesterday held in Washington , DC ( Tuesday Dec. 10th ) about the NEW upcoming expansion/ spectrum of air space for WI_FI and buy outs of contracts .. covering the USA.. seems they will have to share somewhat.. with those around them, they are now trying to set up rules for those things concerning smaller rural locatons, who gets to keep what, how and what they get in a package.. ( they seems to be deciding what will encompas each package. ) we are about to go right back to where we were before the phone breakup years ago. Much more to come on this.. they are NO where near the finish line. If you get CSPAN on your TV or phone, stay tuned in for whats coming .

    Thanks for the heads up, LPT.

    Here’s something we don’t here too much of in the news for some reason. Some groups are pushing to get this up and running and are making great strides. “Super WiFi”. While the big tech companies are all for it because more people will be able to get online at a more reasonable price, make internet calls, and it will promote for more innovation. In the mean time the cell phone carriers are deadly against it for it cuts into their market share. Share, IMO, that has become too costly and constricted.

    Super Wi-Fi is a term coined by the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to describe a wireless networking proposal which the FCC plans to use for the creation of longer-distance wireless Internet access.[1][2] The use of the trademark "Wi-Fi" in the name has been criticized because it is not based on Wi-Fi technology or endorsed by the Wi-Fi Alliance.[1] A trade show has also been called the "Super WiFi Summit" (without hyphen).[3] Various standards such as IEEE 802.22 have been proposed for this concept.

    Instead of using the 2.4 GHz radio frequency of Wi-Fi, the 'Super Wi-Fi' proposal uses the lower-frequency white spaces between television channel frequencies.[4] These lower frequencies allow the signal to travel further and penetrate walls better than the higher frequencies previously used.[4] The FCC's plan was to allow those white space frequencies to be used for free, as happens with shorter-range Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
    Super Wi-Fi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Super Wi-Fi isn't really Wi-Fi, a form of wireless networking which uses unlicensed spectrum. Instead, it's a new kind of wireless network running on unused or underused spectrum known as "white spaces." It's championed by the likes of Google and Microsoft.

    If you Bing “Super WiFi” you’ll get a ton of data on it.
