The Big 4 keynote CTIA liveblog!


Lets go T-Mobile!!! Give us some good news of some big and fast phones , Galaxy Note, One x , GS3 etccc:)

i doubt we'll get the One X considering we have the One S, however i'm really hoping they announce the galaxy note t-mobile version.

6:36 Anndrew Vacca: Hesse: "The US is now the global wireless leader"

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA..... That's almost comical.

LMAO, so right. I live in Korea now and cell service blows the US out of the water! Of course it is a country only the size of Indiana but to say that US is the global leader with the speeds and quality one has gotten in the UK for years is ridiculous.

Wow... I've waited 3 months... Anxiously, patiently, hoping Sprint would announce something. Talk about their 4G strategies but I get some speech on how they want to be trusted with my information? Security? What?.. What the what?... I.... I don't get it!

I have to agree with you, I don't think Sprint is thinking in the proper direction if they are trying to get people to trust them. I doubt customer satisfaction correlates very highly with customers' feelings of security.

Security has a lot of value, but first give me a working usable network and hardware that meets my needs, then give me security.

Kind of like don't tell me about the value of self esteem, when I am starving, I won't hear you over my stomach growling.

IDK if it's me but this analogy seems backwards. I get the point you're trying to make, I think, but it's just not reading like that. Take something like Maslow's hierarchy of needs and security would be a second-order priority, such as 'Safety'; whereas performance or bleeding-edge hardware would be a latter priority, such as 'Esteem'.

To me, though, any network with security designed as an after-thought is not a 'working' or 'usable' network.
