  1. See: https://www.sprint.com/landings/iphone-ipad-bundle/ Sprint just announced a new offer that bundles together the iPhone and iPad and waives the monthly cost of a 16GB iPad mini 3 when both are leased through the iPhone/iPad for Life program and a 2GB data plan is purchased for the tablet. So: A 16GB iPhone 6 on Sprint’s $50 Simply Unlimited plan and a 16GB iPad mini 3 with a $30 2GB data plan will run $100 per month after the iPad’s monthly lease rate is erased in the form of a $17 monthly service credit. The bundle deal is fully customizable with the iPhone 6 Plus and iPad Air 2, as well as 64GB and 128GB models of all four Apple devices, available at an incrementally higher cost.
  2. Apple iPad Air 2 Owners Thread

    Share your experiences! Just ordered my cellular model from Best Buy as soon as "Add to Cart" became available on their website this morning. Should be at my store later this week. What's everyone seeing as far as Sprint plan options on the cellular model? Screenshots?
  3. It would be nice if something similar to this would be an option for phone service for everyone that uses multiple providers. http://www.apple.com/ipad-air-2/wireless/ See the "One sim. Many options." section.
  4. Linky "We still have a lot to cover" is what the invite (picture below) says. New iPad 5 is expected, but people aren't sure about whether the iPad mini will go Retina or not. Updated desktop Macs are also likely. I personally hope that the iPad mini goes Retina and that it and the regular iPad both get Touch ID.
  5. iOS 7 UDID Registration

    Sorry to announce but I am no longer doing UDID activations. I sold quite a few activations on here and was happy to help you all get updated. I may be back soon with more UDID activation opportunities so keep your eyes posted on the forums.
  6. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/12/06/t-mobile-iphone-apple-ipad_n_2250966.html Not surprising that Tmo finally took a bit of the apple.
  7. iOS 6

    Deleted due to forum rules!!

  9. Sprint iPad

    Will there be an iPad that runs on Sprint's network? This article from cnet suggests it is on the way. http://news.cnet.com/8301-1035_3-20106099-94/sprint-to-get-its-own-ipad-2-report-says/?fb_ref=fbrecT&fb_source=profile_multiline
  10. S4GRU Resident "Geek" on the new iPad

    Danny Bullard Sprint 4G Rollout Update Friday, March 23, 2012 - 2:44 PM MDT Hello S4GRU readers, today I will be giving my verdict on the new iPad. I will tell you what I like about the new iPad and what I don't like about the new iPad. Let's get started... What I like about the new iPad 1.) After using the iPad for a few minutes at BestBuy, I fell in love with it's beautiful retina display. This display's PPI is 264, while packing an astonishing 2048x1536 resolution. The screen is just perfect, the colors are great and you can't really see any of the pixels when really looking at the display. 2.) If you've used the iPad 2's camera, I'm sure you are aware how horrible they perform. That's not the case with the new iPad, Apple upgraded the horrible 0.3MP camera to 5MP, using the same five-element optics from the iPhone 4S on the new iPad. The iPad was only capable of taking 720p video, but now the new iPad can record up-to 1080p HD video. After taking a couple shots with the camera, the camera is actually usable, in a good way. 3.) The new iPad packs a dual core CPU and a quad core GPU. After playing around with the new iPad, I've noticed it just seems faster then the iPad 2 when switching in between apps and etc. When it comes to gaming performance, the new iPad did not disappoint. Games look and perform great on the new iPad. Titles like Infinity Blade II look pretty darn good and I didn't notice any lag while playing this game. Not everything is perfect, and this applies to the new iPad. Now I will go over what I didn't like about the new iPad. What I don't like about the new iPad 1.) When the new iPad was announced, people were disappointed that there was really no physical difference between it and the iPad 2. When I compared the two tablets side by side and asked people which one is the new iPad, only a couple people could tell me. Honestly, I think that when a product's successor comes out, there should be at least a little physical difference. 2.) With the upgraded camera on the new iPad, you'd think Apple would include a LED flash this time around, right? Well no, the iPad is still lacking a LED flash. While I was surprised with Apple's decision to not include a LED flash on the new iPad, it wasn't the only thing Apple did not include with the new iPad.... 3.) If you've used the iPhone 4S, I'm sure you've used Siri. Siri is a personal voice assistant. You can have Siri send text messages for you, get you directions and more. With the upgraded GPU, I'm also shocked that Apple did not include Siri with the new iPad. Some people are disappointed with Apple's decision to not include Siri. Even though the new iPad is lacking Siri, Apple did include Voice dictation on the new iPad. 4.) When Apple announced the new iPad, they announced LTE versions for AT&T, Verizon and some Canadian carriers, While I was happy Apple decided to add LTE to the new iPad, I was disappointed that Sprint did not get any iPad loving. While we really don't know why Sprint did not get the new iPad, we can all pretty much assume that Apple didn't want to announce a LTE iPad on Sprint's premature 4G LTE network. Even though Sprint doesn't have the new iPad on their network now, doesn't mean Apple won't announce the new iPad on Sprint's network later this year. That's my verdict on the new iPad. Feel free to sound off in the comments telling what you love and hate about the new iPad. Photo Credit: Engadget, Mashable
  11. Danny Bullard Sprint 4G Rollout Updates Thursday, March 23, 2012 - 1:15 PM MDT I'm sure you know Sprint offers unlimited data, but what about the other wireless carriers? Well that's a totally different story. Out of the Big 4 carriers in the United States, Sprint is the only carrier to offer "true unlimited data." Verizon killed off their unlimited data plan just last year, leaving their heavy data users in the dust. AT&T on the other hand killed off their unlimited data plan in June of 2010 also leaving their data users in the dust. The 4th largest carrier in the U.S., T-Mobile, also killed off their unlimited data plan in 2011. Carriers claim that "90% to 99% of their customers use less then 2GB of data monthly." At the moment, these are the following monthly rates for data for the Tier 1 Wireless carriers. Verizon; 2GB for $30, 5GB for $50 and 8GB for $80. Big money for moderate to heavy users. It only gets better from there (sarcasm). AT&T; 300MB for $20, 3GB for $30 and 5GB for $50. T-Mobile; 2GB for $29.99, 5GB for $39.99 and 10GB for $69.99. Sprint; $79.99 for Unlimited. Unlimited. Sprint offers the best plans for most data users, obviously. However, the big questions for millions of us, is, when is Sprint going to scrap unlimited? I mean, it has to be soon, right? Mobile World Live scored an interview with Sprint's own CEO Dan Hesse and asked them specifically about Sprint keeping unlimited data. This was Hesse's response, "We certainly hope so, my plans are to continue with it as long as we possibly can, hopefully forever. We’ll see, you never say always, you never say never, but I think for some time to come. What’s important to be able to maintain, is to really focus on what it takes to maintain it, the customers have spoken very clearly, I talked on the panel earlier today about our customer satisfaction rankings, how much they've increased because of the simplicity and customers really do like unlimited." Peace of mind is awesome isn't it? So what happens when you go over your "data caps?" Your carrier will charge you a certain amount of money for each gig after you break your data cap. This causes many of their users to be fearful or apprehensive to use their data. These caps can be broken within a day if you're running on Verizon's or AT&T's 4G network if you're a heavy data user. Seem far fetched? Consider this... There have been reports of LTE iPad owners going over their data caps within days when running on their carrier's 4G LTE network. There are ways to prevent this from happening (like staying on WiFi while at home). Sucks when you have to worry about going over your data cap. Even if you don't use much data, having unlimited data gives you the relief of not having to worry about going over a certain cap. Having to worry about going over your data cap is the case with most carriers, sadly. So, is LTE connectivity useless when capped or throttled by your carrier? Yes, if you use more data then the provided data plans. Also, do you see unlimited data as a privilege or a given? Sound off in the comments below. Source: MobileWorldLive
  12. Danny Bullard Sprint 4G Rollout Updates Tuesday, March 20, 2012 - 9:45 AM MDT Hello S4GRU readers. In this article, I will give you my 3 reasons why Apple is successful. I will go into extensive detail on each reason why Apple is successful. These are my opinions, so feel free to comment telling me your reasons why Apple is successful and how you think Apple could improve in each category. Note: These are in no specific order. 1. Marketing Apple markets their products like no other. If you've ever seen Apple's TV commercials, you'll notice how they're simple and cut to the chase. During most Apple commercials, Apple talks about the simplicity and beauty of their products. Example, Apple's new ad for the new iPad talks about the iPad's new retina display saying "When a screen becomes this good, it is simply you and the things you care about." When it comes to presentations, Apple is no slouch. When going over the product and such, they explain it all where the common buyer can understand everything about the product, not just tech geeks. Apple isn't only about marketing, they are also about engaging with their fans, and that is exactly what Steve Jobs did and Tim Cook is doing. 2. Simplicity The average consumer usually doesn't usually care about specs when looking into purchasing a smartphone or a tablet. They just want something that is easy to use and just "works". If you have ever used the iPhone or iPad, I'm sure you know how simple they are to operate/use on a daily basis unlike other devices. The iPhone 4S is so simple that your younger children can operate it without any hiccups (ever seen the Sprint iPhone Unlimited ad with the young child?). Apple's programs like iTunes and the App Store provide seamless experiences for downloading music and apps. Almost everything Apple releases is easy to use, and that's why we love them. Simplicity is a virtue to Apple, case closed. 3. Innovation Apple is known for innovation. They are always thinking of ways to improve their products while making them "different" from others. If you've seen the new iPad, I'm sure you've noticed the iPad's new display packing a whopping 2048x1536 resolution. That is the highest resolution of any tablet/mobile device. Impressive huh? Apple doesn't stop innovating there. Apple's iPhone 4S rocks an 8MP camera with F/2.4 Lens. It's the "The you-can't-believe-it's-on-a-phone camera." Innovation never stops at Apple. Those are my three reasons why Apple is successful. Please weigh in with your thoughts below! Constructive and well thought out comments only, please.
  13. by Scott Johnson Sprint 4G Rollout Updates Thursday, March 15, 2012 - 12:51 PM MDT The 7 inch form factor for the tablet PC was largely understated up until the Kindle Fire’s release last year. There were the expensive high end Android offerings from Samsung, Dell, Acer, Toshiba and HTC as well as the Blackberry Playbook. The inexpensive end was headlined by the Kindle Fire, Barnes and Noble Nook and Lenovo. Sales were underwhelming, until the Kindle Fire caught everyone’s attention and sold millions of units. Now, we have what may be shaping up to be a faceoff between iOS and Android in the 7 inch tablet market. The idea of an offering smaller than the 10 inch tablet may have been dancing in Apple and Google’s heads prior to the Fire being released, but it would seem that they didn’t pull the trigger on those plans until after seeing how the $200 Kindle Fire did in the marketplace. Apple is rumored to be releasing a tablet in a size between the 3.5 inch size of the iPod touch and the 9.7 inch iPad. Some say that the reasoning behind Apple’s puzzling move to ditch the numerical model designation of the new iPad is so that they can simplify the tablet line and release an iPad mini, with naming conventions similar to their line of iPods using generations instead of numeric model numbers. Current rumors have Apple releasing a 7.85 inch tablet with a price point under $300 for the base model. The bezel is also rumored to be shrunk down to increase the portability of the unit. Apple rarely makes bad decisions when it comes to what components to insert in their devices, so it is safe to say this would be a device of “the highest quality.” We could see this “iPad mini” as early as 3rd quarter 2012. Situated on the opposite end is the latest offering in Google’s Nexus line of devices. It was recently confirmed by industry sources that Asus will manufacture a 7 inch Android tablet with the Nexus designation. This tablet would see a price point between $150 and $250 and be constructed of premium components. Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt was quoted stating that the tablet would be “of the highest quality.” This tablet is rumored to be hitting shelves as early as May, giving it a slight head start on its competition from Apple. Another competitor in the game will be Samsung, which has built a reputation for releasing high quality devices. They may have something in the works that would integrate the “S Pen” stylus present in the Galaxy Note and the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet they revealed at CES 2012. Samsung would be smart to recognize the trend in the 7 inch tablet market and keep their offering in the $300 or less range if they want to be competitive. They have to be careful with this as they don't want to undercut sales of their Galaxy Note phone/tablet. The last competitor in this battle for 7 inch tablet supremacy could come from Nokia. With Microsoft bringing their Windows Phone 8 integration of phone and desktop operating systems to market this year, it would only make sense that they would include it on tablets as well. If they intend on moving into contention with Android and iOS, they can’t afford to miss a “battle” as this could turn out to be. To be competitive in this battle, they would be wise to offer a 7 inch tablet in the under $250 price range. Given the ability of WP 7.5 to run fast and smooth on hardware that appears on paper to be underwhelming, they should be able to hit that price point. This summer is looking to be a battle of heavyweight 7 inch tablets at a price lower than we may be used to for high end, well outfitted tablets. Will they see the sales numbers they are looking for? Or did the Kindle Fire snap up all the budget-minded tablet buyers, leaving these tablets out in the cold? If you were in the market for a 7 inch tablet, which tablet would interest you the most?

  14. Sprint iPad on the Way?

    From DSL Reports and Endgadget...apparently Sprint WILL carry the new iPad but likely not until summer or even fall 2012 (probably not until at least some LTE cities are online)... http://www.dslreports.com/shownews/Sprint-iPad-on-the-Way-118799
