Time for an Upgrade. Suggestions?


Recommended Posts

My mother in law's Samsung Transform has finally bit the dust.  I am looking for a Mid/High level phone with a smaller screen to replace the transform.  


I am thinking the Samsung Victory as my buddy has one on Virgin Mobile and is a solid phone and he has no complaints.    


Looking to spend no more than ~$100 with the contract renewal 


I would really like to get the LG Optimus G for her but the phone is just too big.


any ideas or suggestions would be very helpful

The Victory is a great small device. It's only downside is screen size. But for people who want a device that size, it's perfect. Avoid the Viper at all cost. It is not a small LGOG. Not even close.

I have limited time with the Victory (activation and initial setup) several times. It definitely isn't the phone for me, but I was pleasantly surprised by how snappy the little guy was.

The only problem I had with the victory. Which was a deal breaker was the samme internal memory. Cant install more then 3 apps it feels like

We are rapidly heading toward a situation in which the only two options will be OS based smartphones for most of us and a few fringe feature phones for small children and decrepit old people.



I hate to break it to you, but we're already there. And you're a bit off - small children are getting the White iPhone 4 (it's free and it's what they're clamouring for (and there's a persistent rumour that the Black iPhone has inferior technology)). Feature phones are mostly for the elderly, the super cost-conscious (those on messaging+voice (no data) plans), and those who would still be on Nextel were it not already gone.

Convinced her to go with the Optimus G. She messed with mine and loved the screen and the snappyness of the OS.

    • Cool find! Been there since 2018 according to Cellmapper. The only other time I've seen them leave up a temp site like this for a long period of time was when a nearby site is temporarily inoperable like the one in Red Hook Houses. That doesn't seem to be the case here and it's pretty much a GMO site at this point. My best guess is that T-Mobile wanted to put a site there to fill in coverage but because it's on LGA's grounds getting the actual permission to do so is extremely complex so they worked out a deal with the Port Authority to put up a COW in the meantime.  
    • Would this be a T-Mobile COW outside LGA Terminal A? eNB 49106 seems to line up to its position, plus the arm for the trailer to hook onto a truck says T-Mobile. Here is the NYC streetcar view the image was pulled from.     For all the years I have been monitoring the DAS, I have never gotten -55 or better, even after passing by every antenna in a station that is deep enough to have 0 outside macros reaching in. The SNR is still 20+, so its probably designed that way on purpose.
    • From a few days back: https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/deutsche-telekom-aims-50-t-mobile-ownership-2024 DT Chief Executive Timotheus Hoettgas said buying the majority stake in T-Mobile US was the group's most important strategic project at present, according to Reuters. He said that stake should top 50% much sooner than its previous projection of 2024. Earlier this year, DT paid $2.4 billion to SoftBank Group to increase its stake in T-Mobile US to 48.4%.
    • 5.9GHz finally approved by a court: https://www.fiercewireless.com/tech/court-upholds-fccs-decision-59-ghz.  This should be added to 5GHz wi-fi.  considering wi-fi 7 will be included in the qualcomm x70 and related SOCs, doubtful they will be able to add this now, unless designed to be added later.  5.9GHz will given us a third 160MHz unique carrier iirc, a major improvement.
    • waiting for about 400 with demand > supply, or 95% to look again in some detail.  Until then : https://www.sashajavid.com/FCC_Auction108.php#county_details_table_overlay
