    I think it's BS too, but in their defense vs. online code sellers, they pay people to walk grandpa or grandma through the process over the phone because 'their grandchild told them they could use...

    You want to ensure you have enough of a balance for the feature to auto-renew every month.

    Is there a sticker or printing of the FCC/ICC certifications? The model number is normally listed there. I agree with others, the H810 0508 markings look like the housing part number (possibly with...

    I don't know for certain, but I'd be afraid to poke the bear with a Student plan. Do you still meet the eligibility terms for a it? They could require documentation to prove that, and force a plan...

    I'm not sure I'll ever understand the desire to pay by tapping your phone. I guess reducing the thickness of your wallet by 3mm could be considered a benefit..?

    The reason is, it's against their business interests. IMO...

    One M7 - 4.7" screen, and top tier from ~2 years ago. Something of the equivalent ('spec' inflation adjusted) tier today would require a $70+ plan. As far as Telus is concerned there is little...

    I think you reversed the labeling on the Hot/Warm/Cold chart, Howard. It shows the opposite of what you say.

    Yeah, the carriers were all trying to plead poverty and appeal the decision, but they've already raised their rates to more than cover any 'loss' (read "slightly lower profits") they will incur.

    We once got an advance sample of the original Motorola Milestone. Telus's system didn't recognize it, and Motorola's own software update utility refused to touch it due to unknown IMEI :silly:

    No, they only offered it on in-market plans when the request was made. Also, they've since discontinued the discount going forward (for some weeks/months now). I think it was grandfathered for...

    I have no idea if Telus still supports the 'official' method. It has been a long time, but I believe you should check out BitPIM. I'm pretty sure that's what I used to use to add ringtones on my...

    In my mobile history I've outright purchased 5, won 2, and contracted exactly 1 phone (2010). I would have to give up 6GB for less data and a higher monthly bill to contract again, so a 2nd term is...

    I love my HTC One (M7) so I'm probably a little biased, but I'd suggest the M8 over a Moto X simply for the 32GB built in + MicroSD slot vs. 16GB built in and NO MicroSD slot. The smaller size of...

    I love the fact that it's NOT wasting resources on pointlessly higher resolution, that's its holding/reducing size, upping the battery, coming with a decent amount of storage AND keeping a microSD. ...

    I think they're still testing, they delayed the launch to ensure quality of service (hence no marketing yet).

    Higher Megapixel count means smaller individual pixels, and thus poorer light sensitivity (less surface area for the photons to strike).
