what if wali dosen't want an iphone? :rolleyes:


Hey guys mm with all do respect to Iphone & All "APPLE" product but i don't wanna be chewing on "APPLE" it just taste bad lol but yeah i dont for some reason can't feel apple i held it before like my friend's iphone & stuff and its just blah iphone4 had so much potential to make it 1080p + all the small bits & pieces but they left it cause they know we'll get more people to buy IPHONE 5 and we'll make more money marketing wins at the end lol..But Eveynnstar you changed your hair colour ? you had black hair right ? anyways i can't feel the vibe of iphone 4 or 5 but Samsung has it all that iphone has i believe right? dual core, 8mp + 2mp front camera 1080p recording, super speeds, amoled screen which is same like i phone with retina scan & whole bit and i bet you iphone 5 is more expensive because its "APPLE" yet others don't cost so much to the point..



edit: and by the way i know i should've introduced myself i appologize for that. My name is Ali.

Well you want a good quality, rock solid and good customer service. The iPhone5 will give you that. It will also give you the good looking factor. Posted Image

As good quality as the iPhone 4 is (apart from Antennagate). I'm sure the sheep will make the iPhone 5 another huge success but...

Android Market Share

Buyer's next new phone

Its won't be to far into 2012 when Android will have double the market share than apple, therefore more new toys.

Add in Google taking over Motorolla 2012 is looking in great shape for Android in general.

Kickin iPhone butt!!!
DISCLAIMER: Just my opinion :rolleyes: and not he opinion of Modaco :P :lol:

EDIT: Lancez no problem, I'll send you one if you really want. B)

taking over moto is one step forward in the right direction for google, so manufacturers can continue their productions without any restrictions since moto owns over 17,000 patents. on the other hand, apple is playing a very dangerous game by suing every other cell phone manufacturer, not to mention apple is trying to bring down their largest hardware supplier, samsung. you know what? it'll eventually come back and bite "apple" in the butt.

edit: thanks cyberman

well lancez as they say what goes around comes around APPLE is just digging a hole for themselves and they don't know how deep they're digging but when times comes they'll fall in that same hole soo far that won't be able to get back up like look @ symbian. :/ prime example .. anyways lets see how things play in future for gogomoto :D In the meanwhile any new devices out there that i should be considering ? before i finalize my decision .

you could wait for the SGS III at the end of this year or the begining of next year, if patience is one of your virtues :P

seriously tho, i think there is nothing can touch SGS II for now.

Mmm it is a virtue for me lol but question for you boss what will SGS 3 have that SGS 2 don't have yet? lol like what else can you add to SGS2 that's not there ? a game controller like Xperia Play? triple quad artitect core ? Mmm i wonder



edit: i just read about the SGS 3 and the only difference i see is that its 1.8 overclocked which is already done isn't it? and from edge to edge screen & metal construction what difference would it make to have 2 or 3 b/c 3 will look like another I PHONE 5 haha. i think id better go for SGS 2

1 of the reasons why i recommend SGS II is you can easily unlock it. why? go to market and search for chainfire's apps, there's one app called Galaxy S2 SIM Unlock, use that to unlock your phone, simple! but you do have to root your phone which is another piece of cake.

you'll never have such freedom with iphone, never :rolleyes:

edit: i have unlocked a bell SGS II when it first came out last months B) don't worry, you'll be just fine.

CFmethod is the rooting step. pretty easy,
1. find out your firmware version from setting - about phone

2. you'll see something like kernel version I9100-xxKE7, and go to chainfire's thread find kernel with same version as your phone dose.

3. download Samsung drive for your computer then install it. get Odin, then flash chainfire kernel. reboot. your phone now is rooted.

4. download that unlock app from market then run it. write down the code, insert another sim, power it back on, when phone ask for unlock code, just type in. you are good to go.

I'm writing this from my phone, so its not very detailed. feel free to ask if there's anything u don't understand.

if the bell one costs you 500+ I'd recommend you to get an euro version, for 100 more you will get everything that originally came with the phone. I know north America version will be shrinked down. just like what we have on AT&T

FM radio for one, and different hardwares, you'll have new updates in the first place. i have a SGS I (captivate from att) and we had to wait good 6 months before att release GB 2.3.3, if it wasn't for samfirmware.com, we are still stuck with froyo. and att will never release source code for captivate, because they are going to release a whole bunch of new phones. they want you to buy new phones instead of giving you updates.

i'm not really sure about canadian tho. you might wanna check it out before make your move. you know, before you started dating someone, :lol:

P.S. please don't call me boss, am not anyone's boss. you can call me Lance B)

edit, most important thing is the data speed, euro version can get much faster H+ on AT&T while captivate can only get crappy 3G. only iphones can get H+ on AT&T network. i forgot the term of H+, something like HSDPA or HSUPA.

my advice is, go to bell store and play with SGS II then make your decision. i bet you'll be impressed how good it is. i know some websites they sell SGS II but they are all in the states. i know if you buy it from the states, you'll have to pay tax. you might wanna search for canadian companies first or maybe even buy it from UK.

Ok boss im looking around and to be helpful also my dad has some mall certificates he was given as christmas gifts he has saved them up too maybe worth upto $500 so i can buy the phone with that and i don't pay a penny lol and it'd be full price but then im locked with a company so i need to find out if i can unlock without having that company's sim. is that possible ? like lancez in 2.1 or 2.3 of xperia x10 u slide it and it opens in & lets me in would SGS2 let me do that too? or lock me until i insert their sim? and yeah i agree i know SGS 2 is but i just haven't got time to play with it yet maybe sooner or later. Also lancez i shared it also a couple of times im on disability and ive been diagnosed with spinal stenosis (compression of spine with fatty tissue in lower back) L5-S1 close to buttock area so for me to go out dude and check these phones is somewhat a hassle cause i can't stand for too long or i lose balance and feel weak :( but im trying to fight & be strong anyways hopefully this weekend if not then next weekend i should havve it and you can help me start a flash party :D and for sure i'll miss trip's roms i hope he can tweak my SGS 2 while i believe he has SENSATION 4g :/ .. lets see what happens. Have you played any games or anything on it yet and is multi touch there like a 10 point touch & all i hope cause it'll help me with games also haha not much biggie on games on phone but yeah even daughter might enjoy it somewhat lol.
