Iphone 5 - Stick to Samsung or new Nokia Windows 8 phone

  1. #111


    So, by scoffable you mean that the features are worthless and unnecessary? If that is the case, why would these other phones have them?

    I think you are saying, once again, that the feature set of the new iPhone isn't bringing anything revolutionary to the iPhone platform. However, since it is a better iPhone than there has ever been, and zillions of people adore their iPhones, the new iPhone5 will be considered by them to be a great phone.

    Yeah, I'm basically saying the new feature set isn't new or revolutionarily different as Windows Phone already has them. I believe that feature set of social networking should already be built into phones, as that is what I mean that Windows Phone puts people first, not apps. Shoot, this morning, I unlocked my phone and saw right away my brother in a kilt just by glancing at my Start Screen! Didn't need to open an app. I don't believe smartphones should be a wasteland of apps just for social networking, as the phone form factor implies people connectivity with different modes of communication, a smartphone these days should already have social networking baked in, not with an app, just intrinsically there like calling or texting is.

    Shoot, I just realized Virgin Mobile is a CDMA network and therefore real difficult to get different phones working on it. Re-researching this leads me to T-Mobile's prepaid service as they're a GSM provider, so yes, an unlocked GSM Nokia Lumia 920 WILL in fact work. Best part of it is that they have a $30 monthly plan with I believe 150 minutes of talk and unlimited text and data with top-off cards available.

    Thanks, Coke. Now that's way cooool! I have a nephew that works for at&t outa Twin Cities. I'll pick his brain on this also. I know the next generation will be run on super WiFi, so even Virgin may change over some day.

    That would be a good idea, especially since att has a prepaid service too, but it doesn't seem hugely cost effective, but that depends on your usage.

    Hey bud,

    No offense intended. I guess I did miss something. Maybe I was reading too many threads. What I came away with was "damn, I'm coming up on end-of-contract and I have to get another phone [because of that]". If you're dealing with a lemon I understand. Sorry 'bout that!

    My apology for coming on so strong. I was having a bad hair day and this subject ticks me off because of the lemon. I guess I shouldn't take it so serious. Not exactly the worse thing in life. I'll eventually get passed the problem.
