I’m trying to find the best value cell phone plan for my elderaly father. A land line is a waste of money. He may use 90 minutes max a month.
I’m trying to find the best value cell phone plan for my elderaly father. A land line is a waste of money. He may use 90 minutes max a month.
I need a new cell phone anyone know what is the best one? Alltel is my carrier.
I want a basic flip phone that can be put on the Verizon network. All I really need is texting, calling, web-browsing, and durability. Preferably big or raised keys, decent camera, and decent sound quality. As of now the two that look best for me are the
LG VX8360 http://reviews.cnet.com/cell-phones/lg-vx8360-verizon-wireless/4505-6454_7-33490611.html?tag=rnav
Motorola W755 http://reviews.cnet.com/cell-phones/motorola-w755-black-slate/4505-6454_7-33124998.html?tag=rnav
Please help me decide which I should get out of these 2, or any other suggestions.
Sorry but I’m looking for something cheaper than the Droid ($ 200 or less)
i was hoping to find one that flips open instead of slides open, just because i like phones that flip open, but if i have to, i’ll get a slider. I’m trying to find the best QWERTY Keyboard sell phone with Verizon because i’m able to upgrade to in a month and we are alltel users who might be becoming Verizon users so i figured if were going to have text messaging included it would be easier to get a QWERTY Keyboard.
my question is what is the best QWERTY Cell Phone to get, it can be flip or a slider.
by this i mean
easy to use keys, better battery life, 2.0 or higher megapixels, with a Micro SD Slot, gets really good cell phone signals etc…
i looked at the enV3 and read everything about it, and everything looked perfect for me, however i read the reviews and a bunch of them were bad news, mostly about the short battery life, how it cuts on and off, and how its tough to get a signal even though Verizon is Nationwide. So i check out other phones and its about the same, short battery life, cuts on and off, etc…
my price range is around $ 150 with a discount online or in person making it so that it becomes around $ 80 after rebate or the discount.
by the way, all i’ve ever owned have been regular flip phones because i like how you can end the call by just flipping the phone shut.
another complaint i’ve read is locking the phone to keep you from accidentally pressing the buttons when its in your pocket is to hard or you have to do certain things to get it to lock.
I want to get a good cell with a plan, but my mom doesn’t have good credit. I am sick of using prepaid phones!
I’ve been to deadcellzones.com and other sites to read reviews but the reviews for each cell provider were all pretty similar. There’s a very good chance that I’ll be spending most of my time over the next couple of years in southern California, specifically LA. My Verizon contract is up and I’m thinking about dumping them for someone else. My choices are AT&T wireless, T-Mobile, or even staying with Verizon. Nextel and Sprint are off the list. Both are all around horrible. Bad call quality and huge dead-air spaces in their networks. Their “chirp” feature was nice, but now it’s just ghetto. Any recommendations or suggestions on the other three is appreciated. Thank you!
Ok, i really want the LG versa I’m just worried about the battery power.. people have complained about it on Verizon Wireless—–
Either that or the Envy 3
i want a touch screen but not to bulky..
It has a detachable keyboard which is cool but everyone has the envy which sucks im kinda leaning towards the versa which also has a full html browser
I’m thinking about getting a teal one.
I like them both. I like that the decoy has the included bluetooth headset attached to the back of it but I also like all the features of the Pearl?
What do you guys think?
Here are some links if you don’t know what they are:
I want to get the new Lg EnV 3, reviews are saying it shuts down randomly all the time. Any one know about ?
All reviews says it shuts down randomly, I have Voyager and like it, but HATE the touch screen. So figured it was basically the same phone but with dial pad? Suggestions, thoughts? Anyone know if the shut down thing is a fixable problem or anything about that? I want to get it, but dont want to regret it.?
I am looking to get a cell phone. I have never had one before and don’t know which provider I should use. Which one is the best.
Is A pay as you go service like trackfone or vergin moble better than companies with a plan.
I just bought an unlocked T-mobile GSM cell phone, and I want to activate it on the T-mobile prepaid network. I see these people selling already activated cards with $ 30 of prepaid service for like $ 5 on there, and getting thousands of good reviews. How exactly does that work and are there any downsides to it? I really don’t care what area code I have, in fact, most of them are being sold out of California and that’d be kinda cool to have an area code from out there Anyway, like, can you switch the sim card name over to your own and that?
I’m buying a Cell Phone and I want to know how a plan works. Let’s say I bought a phone for $ 30. What other expenses would I have to pay?
so i think i might get the dare from verizon.. but idk if its good? reviews? does anyone have it?.. is it bad good how is it?
im thinking of purchasing a cell phone so i would like to know. thanks.
I really like the look of this phone but heard it got bad reviews.
If you own one, how do you like it?
If some 2 year plans are really free, why don’t the cell phone companies go out of business? Wouldn’t everyone just get the free phones? Or are the phones not really free? I don’t know much about electronics.
After decades of comparing Nixon to Hitler, Reagan to Hitler and Bush to Hitler, liberals have finally decided it is wrong to make comparisons to Hitler. But the only leader to whom they have applied their newfound rule of thumb is: Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
While Ahmadinejad has not done anything as starkly evil as cut the capital gains tax, he does deny the Holocaust, call for the destruction of Israel, deny the existence of gays in Iran and refuses to abandon his nuclear program despite protests from the United Nations. That’s the only world leader we’re not allowed to compare to Hitler.President Bush’s speech at the Knesset two weeks ago was somewhat more nuanced than liberals’ Hitler arguments. He did not simply jump up and down chanting: “Ahmadinejad is Hitler!” Instead, Bush condemned a policy of appeasement toward madmen, citing Neville Chamberlain’s ill-fated talks with Adolf Hitler.Suspiciously, Bush’s speech was interpreted as a direct hit on B. Hussein Obama’s foreign policy — and that’s according to Obama’s supporters.So to defend Obama, who — according to his supporters — favors appeasing madmen, liberals expanded the rule against ad Hitlerum arguments to cover any mention of the events leading to World War II. A ban on “You’re like Hitler” arguments has become liberals’ latest excuse to ignore history. Unless, of course, it is liberals using historical examples to support Obama’s admitted policy of appeasing dangerous lunatics. It’s a strange one-sided argument when they can cite Nixon going to China and Reagan meeting with Gorbachev, but we can’t cite Chamberlain meeting with Hitler. There are reasons to meet with a tyrant, but none apply to Ahmadinejad. We’re not looking for an imperfect ally against some other dictatorship, as Nixon was with China. And we aren’t in a Mexican stand-off with a nuclear power, as Reagan was with the USSR. At least not yet. Mutually Assured Destruction was bad enough with the Evil Empire, but something you definitely want to avoid with lunatics who are willing to commit suicide in order to destroy the enemies of Islam. As with the H-word, our sole objective with Ahmadinejad is to prevent him from becoming a military power. What possible reason is there to meet with Ahmadinejad? To win a $ 20 bar bet as to whether or not the man actually owns a necktie? We know his position and he knows ours. He wants nuclear arms, American troops out of the Middle East and the destruction of Israel. We don’t want that. (This is assuming Mike Gravel doesn’t pull off a major upset this November.) We don’t need him as an ally against some other more dangerous dictator because … well, there aren’t any. Does Obama imagine he will make demands of Ahmadinejad? Using what stick as leverage, pray tell? A U.S. boycott of the next Holocaust-denial conference in Tehran? The U.N. has already demanded that Iran give up its nuclear program. Ahmadinejad has ignored the U.N. and that’s the end of it. We always have the ability to “talk” to Ahmadinejad if we have something to say. Bush has a telephone. If Iranian crop dusters were headed toward one of our nuclear power plants, I am quite certain that Bush would be able to reach Ahmadinejad to tell him that Iran will be flattened unless the planes retreat. If his cell phone died, Bush could just post a quick warning on the Huffington Post. Liberals view talk as an end in itself. They never think through how these talks will proceed, which is why Chamberlain ended up giving away Czechoslovakia. He didn’t leave for Munich planning to do that. It is simply the inevitable result of talking with madmen without a clear and obtainable goal. Without a stick, there’s only a carrot. The only explanation for liberals’ hysterical zealotry in favor of Obama’s proposed open-ended talks with Ahmadinejad is that they seriously imagine crazy foreign dictators will be as charmed by Obama as cable TV hosts whose legs tingle when they listen to Obama (a condition that used to be known as “sciatica”). Because, really, who better to face down a Holocaust denier with a messianic complex than the guy who is afraid of a debate moderated by Brit Hume? There is no possible result of such a meeting apart from appeasement and humiliation of the U.S. If we are prepared to talk, then we’re looking for a deal. What kind of deal do you make with a madman until he is ready to surrender? Will President Obama listen respectfully as Ahmadinejad says he plans to build nuclear weapons? Will he say he’ll get back to Ahmadinejad on removing all U.S. troops from the region? Will he nod his head as Ahmadinejad demands the removal of the Jewish population from the Middle East? Obama says he’s prepared to have an open-ended chat with Ahmadinejad, so I guess everything is on the table. Perhaps in the spirit of compromise, Obama could agree to let Iran push only half of Israel into the sea. That would certainly constitute “change”! Obama could give one of those upbeat speeches of his, saying: As a result of my recent talks with President Ahmadinejad, some see the state of Israel as being half empty. I prefer to see it as half full. And then Obama can return and tell Americans he could no more repudiate Ahmadinejad than he could repudiate his own white grandmother. It will make Chris Matthews’ leg tingle. There is a third reason to talk to dictators, in addition to seeking an ally or as part of a policy of Mutually Assured Destruction. Gen. Douglas MacArthur talked with Japanese imperial forces on Sept. 2, 1945. There was a long ceremony aboard the USS Missouri with full press coverage and a lot of talk. It was a regular international confab! It also took place after we had dropped two nukes on Japan and MacArthur was officially accepting Japan’s surrender. If Obama plans to drop nukes on Ahmadinejad prior to their little chat-fest, I’m all for it. But I don’t think that’s what liberals have in mind.
I’m thinking about getting the LG enV3 and I’m trying to decide which color I want.
I watched a review video and I’m pretty sure he used the maroon colored enV3 but it looks kind of different in color than the one on display on Verizon’s website. It almost looks pink: http://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c/store/controller?item=phoneFirst&action=viewPhoneDetail&selectedPhoneId=4746
So basically, I don’t want pink. I’d rather have the color of the phone that was on the review video because I don’t really like the blue. So is the maroon color pink or like a maroon (shiny red color)?
I have a prepaid cell phone and sometimes I feel like I’m getting cheated out of money and that a monthly plan would be better but however, Prepaid cell phones can be cheaper in some instances.
is anyone interested in things like that?
I think communication and cooperation is nonexistent between you and me. I do not know what you want from me. I feel that whatever I say or do is misinterpreted resulting in ill feelings between us. Using Joe as a go between prevents open-communication and prevents accountability for how our actions are interpreted and treated. You make other plans so I am left alone at your home, or you demand I find somewhere else to stay. The only reason I come to visit is to see you, Joe and the children. If I am not welcome in your home and not allowed to see any of you while I am there, I may as well not visit. I am sorry that I resent you comparing time I am alone in your house to time you spend with your parents in Disney World, on cruises and at the beach, going out to dinner and just hanging out with them. If the shoe were on the other foot, I know your parents would feel the same way I do. Sitting alone in your house or somewhere else in NJ is NOT the same as being on trips and hanging out with you and your family. Also, literally every time Joe rides with me in the car, you call him on the cell phone and talk the entire time. Joe informs me we must stop whatever our plans are. You have the right to tell Joe what to do and I agree he must do what it takes to make you happy, including ignoring me and telling me your friends and family take full presence over any plans previously made with me. I still feel hurt, but I do not want to argue with you or Joe. I do feel that Joe and you should respect me enough to inform me that plans made with me cause resentment and will not be carried out, hence I should not get my hopes up. I admit I feel envious that you are allowed to spend time (go to lunch or out for the afternoon) with your mom and not be on the cell phone with Joe the entire time. Please accept my apology for feeling hurt and humiliated that I cannot be part of Joe’s life while you are allowed to be very active with your mom. I am truly happy you are so very close with your mom. I used to be the same way with Joe. He now belongs to you and I know as the mother-in-law I have to let go. I do not want to be the cause of your friction with Joe. I do not want a score card kept for the time spent with my grandchildren and then be told that the reason you take vacations with your parents and are allowed to go out to dinner with them is because I am always around. We know this is not true. I feel like you are mocking me when you make such comparisons.The little time I have with my grandchildren is not close to the freedom your parents have to come and go as they please in your home, and all the events you spend with them. I agree it is none of my business what you do with your parents. I am entitled to an answer when I invite you to do something with me. A simple no is fine. I do feel hurt that I cannot be part of my son’s life and his family, but I respect that you are the most important person in Joe’s life and you simple do not want me around. Joe has made very clear to me that under no circumstances will you ever take a trip with me, because it upsets you- your feel bored and sick. The two of you argue the entire time you are forced to be at my home or doing something I suggested. When you make other plans to arrive late and leave early, these actions make me feel belittled and stupid for getting my hopes up. I felt resentful last Thanksgiving when Joe insisted I change my work schedule so you could spend the weekend here. He stated this is my only weekend each year to have you and the children visit, I made plans to visit the North Pole and spent $ 300 for groceries for that weekend. You arrived late (blaming Joel the father of her first child, though he is flexible when plans are made with your parents) and announced you were leaving within 16 hours because your parents decided to have a big Thanksgiving party. I felt insignificant and like everything I did was a set up for you can show me how little I mean to you. Joe is yours, I get it! I don’t understand what I did to you to make you feel that you need to grind my soul into the ground with humiliation; why you tell me you love me and then make sure all plans with me has a hurtful twist of events. Joe said you will not visit the North Pole with me, because you cannot afford to take a vacation, but then your parents invited you to go to Disney World for Christmas, to have you and the children to them self. And off you went, after telling me I was welcome to come and stay for Christmas. I sat alone in your home and you told me this was my quality time with my grandchildren. I should not be buying $ 300 – $ 600 worth of groceries each month to make sure you have enough food, if I am not welcome in your home and you plan to leave as soon as I get there. When I am told I am welcome,
Is the lg shine a good phone?
I have t-mobile but I can buy it unlocked.
The day two people exchange vows may not be your special day, but it’s someone’s special day, so be on your best behavior — all the way from the I -do’s to the obligatory Gloria Gaynor dance marathon…
Don’t Be Fashionably Late As the song says, get to the church on time! Allow enough time to get to there 15 minutes early or more no matter what weather, traffic, or other acts of divine intervention pop up. Print out directions to both the ceremony and the reception (if it’s at a different location). Many a wedding has been hampered by guests who got lost and showed up an hour late.
Don’t Produce Sound Effects While at a wedding and reception, turn off your Blackberries and cell phones, put them on vibrate, or better yet, don’t even take them!
Don’t Talk Trash It may sound obvious, but it happens all the time. No matter how big or how loud a wedding is, things get overheard. So, be on your best and most polite behavior. No gossip about any of the other guests. No complaining out loud about anything — whether it’s the food or the long line at the ladies’ room. And no comparisons to other weddings! As far as the bride and groom are concerned, this is a perfect day, and so it should be!
Don’t Come Bearing Gifts Whether you’re planning on gifting the happy couple a Cuisinart or cold hard cash, do them a huge favor and don’t bring it on the wedding day. If you do, they have to keep track of it and haul it home at the end of the night. Send the gift ahead of time, or after the actual ceremony — at a time when they can really relax and enjoy it.
Don’t Dress Down Whatever you choose to wear, make the effort to look your best for the bride and groom. They’ll appreciate that you got dolled or duded up for the occasion. If the invitation doesn’t specify dress code, put in a friendly email or call to the bride, groom, their parents, or attendants to get more info. Black Tie means you’ve got to dust off that long silk dress or rent a tux. If it’s an outdoor affair, there may be more leeway, but get details on the location, so you can come prepared (because it’s isn’t fun to be traipsing around in the sand in your stilettos!).
Don’t Bring Mr. or Ms. Random If you’re single, choose your date carefully. If it’s someone you’ve only been out with once, it may not be the best idea (could be awkward for you, your date, and the newlyweds). Same if it’s someone you recently “sort of” broke up with. Weddings are intimate affairs and bringing in a stranger should be done with thought. Let the bride or groom know if you decide to come alone so they can seat you with other fun “ones!” And as much as you may love your kiddos, don’t take them if children aren’t invited.
Don’t Steal the Show Wedding ceremonies take all forms — from religious to poetic, musical, or humorous. Whatever the vibe, let the bride and groom set the tone and follow their lead. If you’re normally a loud, life-of-the-party type, bring it down a notch and let the wedding couple stand out. If you’re a weeper, bring tissues and sit where you can sob without disturbing the I Do’s. If the ceremony includes religious rituals, find out what you should do (or not do) ahead of time.
Don’t Pig Out If food is serve-yourself, avoid the buffet line stampede and wait until the crowd dies down. Also, avoid going back for thirds. Take a break and save room for cake! Seconds might be okay, once you’ve seen that everyone has eaten. If the food is served sit-down, eat what is served without requesting substitutions or omissions, unless you have a food allergy. Otherwise, pick delicately or chow down, but don’t gripe that you “don’t like fish.” Worse comes to worst, you can hit Burger King on the way home!
Don’t Drag Out Skeletons If the bride blushes, it should be from pride, joy, or sheer love. Not because someone just stood up and told a humiliating story about the loser she dated in high school! Ingratiate yourself to the lady and her groom by avoiding any potentially embarrassing or juvenile behavior — no bawdy jokes, no tales about their dating habits or exploits, no overdrinking, and no overly sexy dancing. Have fun, but don’t have it at anyone else’s expense.
Don’t Stockpile Party Favors At the end of the night, as you’re saying your thank-yous and farewells, avoid the urge to hog all the super-cool (or yummy) party favors! You don’t need to take some for people who weren’t able to attend. You don’t need extras. Take one for yourself, unless someone in the wedding party urges you to do otherwise.
I like to add if your part of the bridal party please be on time and dont complain about anything!
Oh yes you are right dont Get drunk before or during the wedding and make a fool od your self is a big one!
I can go either way on the gift thing depends I think where and when your having it! I know all to well about the drunk thing (MIL, SIL, FIL all were drunk before the wedding and during it)
