posted by Admin 6:41 PM
Wednesday, July 16, 2014

Verizon is bringing LTE service to its AllSet prepaid plans. Rumors of the plans getting LTE were first reported earlier this month by the blog Droid Life. The plans are for feature pones and smartphones, with the cheapest prepaid smartphone plan starting at $45 per month for unlimited voice and texting and 500 MB of data.
And with BRIDGE DATA, customers can customize their usage allowances by adding data to their account whenever they want. Any unused data from the current monthly cycle will move to the next, so customers pay for what they need without extra fees or overcharge charges.

BRIDGE DATA options include:

1 GB for $10 with 90-day expiration
3 GB for $20 with 90-day expiration

Viva Movil a year later

Sunday, July 6, 2014

A year later, though, the buzz is gone for Viva Movil.

Lopez unveiled Viva along with then-Verizon Wireless Chief Operating Officer Marni Walden in May 2013 at the end of a painfully uneventful wireless trade show. Draped in a chic, slinky white dress, Lopez stood in front of a giant display and flashing lights talking about the opportunity she saw in catering to the Hispanic market with family-friendly stores, more attentive services, and — of course — J-Lo-inspired smartphone cases.

Samsung S5 is a Flagship Android device

I always think its strange when someone wants a new Smartphone but does not want to pay for it and when they get the phone they wonder why it is not up to par with the competition. The difference in the cost is so little it does not make sense.

I can get a free phone like a LG Lucid 3 for free which is a beginner device or the flagship phone the Samsung S5 Samsung Galaxy S 5 Cell Phone for Verizon Wireless, Only $99.99 with 2-Year Agreement, Plus Free Shipping which is superior to the LG for $99.

The difference will make or break your experience on the Verizon network. The camera, processor, screen and feel of the device is superior to the LG lucid. So save your money and buy the best equipment for the money. You will not regret it!

Instead of offering different tiers of service, Verizon now offers prepaid smartphone customers a single $45 a month plan that comes with unlimited voice minutes and text messaging plus 500MB of data. Customers who want more than 500MB of data can add it a la carte.
You can also now use 4G LTE smartphones on the new prepaid plans but they will only still work 3G.

T-Mobile won’t say which un-carrier features have attracted the most customers but the low prices are obviously a key component.
“Deals that are hard to pass up”

One of those un-carrier features is there new roaming plan that I am using right now in Trinidad. All calls are 20 cents a minute, unlimited text messaging and unlimited data. When I landed in Trinidad I received a text stating what my cost would be. The web is not the fastest but for emails or web searches it works great.

I was one of the first to register for BBM and now I have it on my Samsung Galaxy S3. My first BBM was to a friend in Trinidad and it worked flawlessly.
I posted my BBM number on Facebook, G+ and Twitter so my friends could add me.
I would like to know how many people added out today and was able to use it.

An app to access cell phones remotely

posted by Admin 7:57 AM
Thursday, October 17, 2013

I have used apps like this before there are many in the app stores but you must be warned that if you can remotely access your phone the app makers, carriers and the government can also.

Verizon Wireless is promoting a application you can get along with their insurance that will allow tech support to access your device and trouble shoot any problems. The app does have a monthly cost but a few months ago I was helping a client with a email issue on her smartphone and Verizon’s tech support accessed the phone without a application being installed on the device. I asked how many phones are able to be accessed this way and was told all the newer models.

Users can perform a host of operations using the application. One of its key features is that users can fetch the phone’s call log remotely to their email address or by text message to alternate mobile phone.

Additionally, users can also search and find contacts stored in the phone.

Users even have the facility to locate misplaced phones in silent mode by employing the ‘remote-ringer’ capability – whereby users can make the phone ring, even if it is in silent mode.

Another major feature of the application is its ability to pin-point the phone’s location using the phone’s GPS, and send it to the user, to help users locate the mobile phone if it is lost.

The commentators were using Wi-Fi and commenting how the voice quality was great, the joke it’s on them.

If you’ve ever struggled with a monthly cell phone bill, you’ve probably looked for cheaper alternatives like prepaid plans from big box stores or startup carriers like Zact and Ting. Well, what’s cheaper than free? That’s exactly what Scratch Wireless aims to offer with what it claims is the world’s first free mobile service, which launches today. It manages to do so with a modified Android OS that pushes the phone to connect to WiFi for pretty much everything — calls, text and data. However, if you do want to use your phone outside of a WiFi area, that’s when the charges come in. Scratch Wireless has a partnership with Sprint to offer $1.99 per day for up to 30 minutes of cell calls and another $1.99 per day for up to 25MB of data. There’s also a monthly $14.99 pass for either 250 minutes of voice calls or 200MBs of data.
