    Who has signal as good as VZW?

    I switched from Sprint to VZW over a decade ago because I travel all of north America and need a reliable signal for business. I am wondering if 10 years later, AT&T or T-Mobile has coverage as good as Verizon all over the 50 states and Canada. Saw only one recent post on the topic and it said...

    Help Pixel 4a 5G muting without activating mute

    My Verizon Pixel 4a 5G has a frustrating issue. While I am on a longer phone call, it sometimes mutes my end of the conversation. To be clear, the MUTE button is NOT activated. It is just the callers suddenly can't hear me even though I can hear them. When I look at my screen the phone call is...

    Help S7, S7 edge, or 6P

    Trying to decide if I should replace my 4 VZW S5 phones with an S7, S7 Edge or the Nexus 6P. My only two concerns with phones are battery life and how quick does each screen load. Ever since I upgraded my S5 to Lollipop it has been slower than it was. My brother says the only difference between...

    Help Galaxy S3 is much slower than it used to be

    My Verizon Galaxy S3 is much slower to do certain tasks then it used to be. I have had it for one year.

    Help Does ICS update cause dropped calls and trouble being heard?

    My wife says the ICS update has caused calls to drop and has also caused callers to ask "Are you in the car" because apparently they can't hear her correctly sometimes. I have read tons of ICS posts in this Sprint SII forum (that is what my wife has) and I see no mention of dropped calls or...

    I just bought a 3500ma battery with new back plate. Obviously it will no longer fit my Otterbox but I got tired of having it in the otterbox anyways. Is there such a thing as a plastic holster without any kind of case that would allow me to clip the phone into the holster with no case? I assume...

    any way to get Gmail to POP on phone versus sync?

    I don't like the fact that if I open a gmail on my phone and delete it then it won't download to outlook later. Is there any way to setup normal pop mail on android for a gmail account? This way I could tell it to leave messages on the server versus sync?
