Since taking over as Sprint CEO, Marcelo Claure has been applauded for his aggressive efforts to turn the the company’s declining fortunes around. Though he has only been on the job since Aug. 11, Claure had made major changes, including eliminating the confusing “Framily” pricing plan, launching the innovative “iPhone for Life” deal, and introducing simplified, cheaper family plans.
The linchpin of that strategy is the company’s Sprint Family Share Pack, which offers up to 10 lines for $100, according to the television commercials touting it. “Whether you have a family of two, four, or 10,” the commercial states, “switch your whole family to Sprint. You’ll only pay 100 bucks a month.”
This claim is reinforced by bold graphics that detail how subscribers to the plan will get unlimited talk and text and 20GB of data to share. The spot goes on to tout how the data offered is twice that of rivals AT&T , Verizon , and T-Mobile .
One week after President Obama signed a phone-unlocking bill into law, T-Mobile has responded by becoming the first American carrier to launch its own unlocking app. Modestly titled Device Unlock, the app debuted on Friday in the Google Play store, though it comes with one major limitation: It only unlocks the Samsung Galaxy Avant, a lower-specced offering that launched in late July exclusively on T-Mobile.
What a site that I can actually send a fax for free without signing up for any service? Yes, this site Fax Zero allowed me to send a fax easily and free with their service. I know Ringcentral, efax and some others have that ability but you must sign up for their services and then get 30 days free.
All I wanted to do is send a fax to cancel service on a product I have and it was faster using a fax instead of mail (USPS). I may send a fax once every six months and having the ability now to do so now without running into a Fedex or UPS store makes it very easy.
The service can’t receive faxes and you have a limit to how many you can do in one day, 5 in a day is plenty for most. I got a confirmation that the fax was sent and received by my email. I also can send the fax from my smartphone, tablet and computer from Fax Zero.

A lot of cellphones boost their power levels when the coverage is low or blocked like under a pillow or in your pocket. Your phone connects to the wireless network frequently updating your email, location and more depending on all the applications you have on your device.
You may notice your phone getting hot at times when you talk at lengths, watching videos or streaming music so be careful and avoid the aftermarket batteries. Those aftermarket batteries may be cheaper but they are usually substandard and not recommended by the manufacturer.
This video below was a phone that caught on fire under a pillow with a aftermarket battery.
LG Electronics has been the company which has made the last two Google flagship handsets – the Nexus 4 and the Nexus 5. But as far as Nexus 6 is concerned, LG Electronics will not be making the Google flagship phone.
According to LG’s global communications director, Ken Hong, LG does not know the status of the next Nexus smartphone. There is little knowledge regarding the Android Silver program as well. Hong also said that LG has not been called on by Google to work on any Nexus device.
HTC is being speculated as the next maker of Nexus smartphones. Of course, as of now, neither HTC nor Google has made any official announcement of the same.
The iPhone 6 will be the most radical redesign in iPhone history. Central to that will be the move to larger 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch displays and central toconvincing us this is a good idea will be Apple ’s use of sapphire displays. But what is a sapphire display? Why is it better than glass and will it cost the earth?
