This isn't a phone question but does anyone know how much it would cost to repair a screen on a tv? My bro laid his samgsung on it's face and it messed up and he just gave it to me. I wonder if it cost just as much as a new one

Re: Smart Phone Help

I have a question. My contract with Verizon is up in March next year, and I'm debating leaving because they are not going to let me keep my unlimited plan. I know Sprint has unlimited data, but they have a shoddy rep from multiple people I've talked to, who all said they do some things with their billing (like being charged for things you don't have/use) and the coverage isn't that great. As far as the data goes, I've looked at my history of data usage and it basically ranges between 750 kb - 1.25 gb, so I'm still undecided if I do get a new plan what plan I should get. I don't want to be paying more for a plan with a data cap, but I also don't want to run the risk of going over my limit. So basically still undecided what route to take here. Any input appreciated.

No it's a year old or so

I'm in a similar situation. I got the shitty Thunderbolt phone when they told me if I signed up now I could be grandfathered in under the unlimited plan. My data use isn't that high, but it's the peace of mind I like. You can keep unlimited if you buy the phone out-right. Sprint is rolling out real LTE in the DC area over the next couple months, I'm leaning that way myself.

Before you get Sprint make sure you identify where you are and if the 4g LTE is imminent. It's very spotty- and they've been WAAAYYY behind schedule on the roll-out. Don't bank on them prioritizing certain areas, it will drive you mad.

That being said, once you do land the LTE- it's blazing fast. I recently purchased the Galaxy Note 2 and it is incredible. I went into the store thinking I should get the new Iphone, and thank god I didn't. This thing blows it out of the water.


Cartes de couverture | Sensorly <--- this is a crowd sourced app that uses user info to determine where coverage is on a particular network, and if you look at the 4g lte coverage, you'll noticed it's pretty hurting here in D.C.

Re: Smart Phone Help

i've grown less fond of my htc one v.

one thing that drives me crazy is that there is no way to silence the camera shutter sound when taking a pic *w/o root access. it's virtually impossible to record my neighbor's pets w/o making him aware, he's making such a huge stink about it.
i told him "look buddy, if you don't want your pets to be recorded, don't put them out"

also, the alarm clock does not always work. i've tried other alarm clock apps, but those have failed me as well. if i didn't use my alarm clock radio as backup, i would have been late to work on more then one occasion. no no no

What alarm clock are you using? I use the built in clock(alarm feature) on the HTC Amaze, and never had any issue.

I don't know about the shutter sound, again seems odd though since the amaze has a toggle for the shutter sound.

Re: Smart Phone Help

Here is an android forum link, might help although it requires a paid app(tasker):
Here is how to turn that camera shutter sound off. - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com

From the sound of it Shush! might work too, just turn the volume off and let Shush restore it in 15 minutes.

first i used the stock clock app, then alarm clock xtreme free, now alarm clock plus.

i'm on another android forum, it's a well documented problem w the one v.
apparently htc is aware of it, whether they're doing anything about it is a different story.

same w the shutter sound, htc has told me point blank that it's not possible. i asked them if it will be possible, waiting on their response.
