  1. Not sure about "newest" but I definitely got a quick charger with my G5. I use it regularly and my phone charges quite quickly. - Trip
  2. This isn't really iPhone specific, but the iPhone announcement did make me think of it. Do these devices that use facial recognition, do you also need a PIN to access the device? If not, I would never, ever use this technology. The only thing stopping a police officer from an illegal search is... well, nothing. They hold the phone up to your face and the phone unlocks itself. - Trip
  3. Verizon shrinking coverage in Maine.

    Because nothing says "bad for America" like locally-owned small businesses that can respond to local customer needs, right? I don't understand why you desperately want gigantic companies who run roughshod over consumers to grow ever larger and more able to run roughshod over consumers. While complaining that they run roughshod over consumers, no less. - Trip

    You can click on the date or the time underneath the name of the most recent poster and it'll take you there. - Trip

    If you click the little dot or star to the left of the thread, it will take you to the first unread post. I do that on every forum I visit because different software has been inconsistent about what happens when you click the title itself. - Trip
  6. In the areas I'm familiar with, they use microwave backhaul for many of their sites. Certainly doesn't surprise me that they could use T1 lines or whatever else they're able to get at some of their sites. - Trip
  7. LG G6 to be Sprint's first HPUE-capable device

    No, the platinum one. After I got home, later in the evening, I tried again and it worked. So strange. - Trip
  8. LG G6 to be Sprint's first HPUE-capable device

    It wasn't just the G6 that was missing though. Lots of phones were missing from the displays for all the carriers. It was kind of... odd. Made me wary of the whole store. - Trip
  9. LG G6 to be Sprint's first HPUE-capable device

    I decided against it. It suddenly occurred to me that now that work has moved to having an RSA "Soft Token" on my phone, which I just had done this week, I'd have to have it done again, and I'd likely be without access to work e-mail over the weekend. But, despite that, I went to the store and decided that I'd look and see it in person and then make a final decision. Got there and not only was the G6 missing from the Sprint display, it was also missing from the AT&T display, and the Sprint display did not have the sale price on it. So, I turned around and left. - Trip
  10. LG G6 to be Sprint's first HPUE-capable device

    Maybe I'll just show up at the store and plan to spend a while there. - Trip
  11. LG G6 to be Sprint's first HPUE-capable device

    I paid my phone off in full when I bought it, so the day after I got it, it said I was upgrade eligible. - Trip
  12. LG G6 to be Sprint's first HPUE-capable device

    The Best Buy site keeps telling me that my information doesn't match my Sprint records. I reset my PIN just in case, but it's still telling me that something's wrong. I'm guessing if I went into the store, they'd have the same issue? I was hoping to reserve it and then go in to pick it up this evening. - Trip
  13. LG G6 to be Sprint's first HPUE-capable device

    How does that work? Can I not pay the $5/month ($120 total) in a lump up front? Or after the first month? (Considering it since my power button doesn't work anymore.) - Trip
  14. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    I'm in the DC market and haven't heard anything either. - Trip
  15. IIRC, when I was in Savannah in March, there was no B41 at all. The network performed well enough for my uses (except at the hotel in Richmond Hill), but there was definite room for improvement. - Trip
