    I still don't get this. Why on earth doesn't somebody improve battery tech - with the advances in all the other technology that becomes more and more power hungry battery life just doesn't seem to have improved in the last 5 years everyone just looks for ways to minimise the power draw.

    If someone came out with a super 5000mah battery that took up the space of a standard battery and gave a smartphone a weeks worth of life it would fly off the shelves.
    Also, its consumers wanting lighter thinner devices, so since OEMs are stuck with the same cell dimensions, its about being power efficient right now with the chipset and screen. I'd love to see a 920 where the shell itself was solar powered and that way you charge the battery too...

    It's because in the 50's or later all the oil companies bought out the rights to battery technologies and buried them. Those rights last 50-60 years or a bit more and they're just starting to expire soon so expect to see some breakthroughs all of a sudden.
    o.o really ?

    Just out of curiosity, does your phone heat up using the WPC app? Mine does along with doing pretty much anything. It's very annoying. If it's software related I hope they fix it soon. If it's hardware I want a new phone!
    No but it use to heat up when using the WPC app on a previous version.

    I notice this happens alot with some apps lately.

    A colleague of mine won tickets for a The Naked and Famous concert, and as I seem to be an enjoyable person, she took me with her.

    I liked it, it was fun. Nice atmosphere and they played all their popular songs.

    So folks, imagine my suprise when the store clerk I went to to trade in my 810 to get that cyan 920 claimed that my phone was water damaged because a corner of the water damage sticker appeared pink-ish? Especially since they phone has been nowhere near any water to this point in the year since I've had it?
    Can you imagine my surprise at t-mobile denying my request to unlock my now fully paid for 810 as well?

    Needless to say I was livid. So I'm not getting the 920 at that store. I plan to call back t-mobile in the morning since they're closed for veterans day (that's a surprise) and rip someone a new *** if they cannot unlock my 810...

    So now I'm never buying another carrier branded phone. Ever. Unless I have to use Verizon. Otherwise, never. Ever.

    So I need folks help. I have a website I use that can get me a 920 unlocked (int'l model) for $285 and a 925 for $369. Shipping is the same: $30. Which model should I get?

    920 because I don't see the 920 going anywhere and that 32 gb storage is where its at and plus it has wireless charging so you can use it with out buying an accessory and with almost 80$ extra you can take your GF to lunch or diner or spend it on your self for the hell of it :)

    so as I was working out ( going to make my 6 pack more defined ) this song played and it was awesome and I can think many ways that this song could be used 1) work out 2) sparing 3) playing soccer by passing the ball while juggling it in the air 4) or doing a project while messing around so I want to share this to you all and I know its Japanese but it just fit the mood while I was working out maybe you guys and laura will like it

    it was a girl at the counter. This is a used electronics store I've dealt with for many years and have gotten some good deals at times. I mean they made me waste an hour waiting around in the city (I got 2 very pairs of work shoes for $30 at Payless while I waited for them to "test" the 810). The guy who first looked at it could have mentioned that water sticker crap and I would have taken the 810 and left. Anyhow, they're gunshy because in the past some people have sold them stolen electronics before so while I get where they're coming from, they missed out on a sale today.

    T-mo was giving me some bull**** excuse in the automated email they sent today about the unlock request. Called to address it bur they were closed for veteran's day. Will call tomorrow and rip someone a new *** tomorrow if they give me crap.

    Our boss Dave Blake had a 920 and is using a 925 now. Shoot him a pm and ask his opinion. I'm sure he would be glad to help and could give you a first hand opinion.

    its not cool of them and that's why I stopped using them, quite honestly. But it is what it is...i may get a psp vita or an iPod touch in there with the store credit I have. I just may sell my 810 to my friend instead, once t-mobile unlocks it.
