Expandable Memory: When you have cloud services, why do you need things on your phone?

You have GOT to be trolling, right?

Unless you're with Sprint in an LTE area, the amount of data you can transfer over the cloud per month is negligible. How does 2-5GB a month compare to a 64GB (soon to be 128GB, then 256GB) card you can put in your phone? Well, it's the difference between being able to have 10% of my music or 100% of it available to my phone.

Congrats! You fell for Apple's marketing.

majestic: MrEricSir: majestic: I have 5 Iphones on my family plan. They are ok. But WHY is there no call-blocking app? WTF? Since the days of my POS Blackberry I could block calls from any number I chose to add to my blacklist. Why, Apple, why?

I've got two words for you: Google Voice.

Yep, that's the same thing.

Actually it's better, because the call never even makes it to your phone -- so it won't interrupt internet access on CDMA networks. You can have unwanted numbers go straight to voicemail or reject with an invalid number message.

The spam filtering alone makes Google Voice worth it, though. Before I ported my number to Google I got about 2-3 bullshiat calls a day, now I get zero.

skinink: At this point Apple could buy up a ton of old clam shell phones, put their logo on it, and the phone would sell like hotcakes.

That's apparently not as true now as it once was. Steve Jobs legacy is fading. If they don't quit f*cking around soon, they'll lose their image and thus their market edge.
