DELL Streak: 3G and 4G question

[ Edited ]

When the great and powerful AT&T-Mobile riiiiiize from the POD into the mega-company and after 4G is 'truely' rolled out, will ATT discontinue supporting or selling phones that only has 3G capability?  Will we hve to purchase new phones to continue using the system or can we hold on to our 3g till they fall apart in our grabby hands before having to get back into the market again?  I just bought a phone and dont want to go thru that again for awahile (like hating car shopping)

I've had mine since November.  I've been begging for a 5" phone for years and had to get this if only to support the company that answered my prayers.  Just wish it had a hardware keyboard.

 

I've been a WinMo (6.5.X) user for years and years.  I didn't really like the idea of switching to Android but I had no choice if I was going to use this puppy.  Started out with 1.6 and then 2.1, 2.2, and now 2.2.2.  I'm still luke-warm on Android.  I like the app store idea and it is better than the Marketplace thing on WinMo.  And it's much more flexible than WinMo with all the UI choices (I use ADW.Launcher, seems closest to CHT).  However, I got used to having all my contacts and appointments in Outlook and the Outlook <-> Android interface is clumsey to me.  So I ditched Outlook and now 100% Google with my contacts and calendar.

 

All the app choices are a benefit for Android.  I don't use the stock email client, went with K-9.

 

My phone is rooted only because I want to use SetCPU and a couple of other utilities that need root access. 

 

Bottom-line:  Credit the Streak for bringing me to Android.  But I would have bought the Streak no matter what OS it was based on.  And if there was a chef baking a WinMo 6.5.X ROM for the Streak, my phone would have never been booted off Android...

Re: DELL Streak (ANDROID)

Wow, looks lime you went the same route I did from winmo, till they pried otb from my grabby fingers... I swore id never go android and glad I finally did. Especially the 5" screen! Oh, and I like t he flexibilith of the android system, rooting and having full control.

I went eith Enhanced Email from the market and its really nice. The stock is a means to get acclaimated, but the Enhanced has all the features I used in client emails from mass deletes, move, etc.

I have always had a phone with a physical keyboard but Streak sold me. I did get a bluetooth keypad to use with my phone, its tiny and rather convinient. Ill post a pic of it. See if you can locate one on amazon.

Cool!  I'll check out that keyboard.  Looks small enough to keep in my pocket next to my iPod Touch...

Its nice and thin too. Holds a charge for a while. I bought a leather zipped carry case to put my Streak and the keypad, plus the usb cable for charging the pad if needed.

I hate getting the screen dirty and convient sitting the streak down on the desk and typing on a full keypad, screen stays cleaner as far as touching all the keys. If u consider one, they come in black to match phones, but they mistakenly sent silver. I didnt feel like dealing with the refund/swap issue.

If you are wondering why it appears the Dell Streak is becoming scarce on Amazon Wireless and BestBuy (looks like they are not restocking when running out)

Aside from AT&T pulling out of allowing 3rd party online vendors (such as wirefly and the like) to sell att phones anymore, there's a NEW DELL STREAK (or some new name) coming out 1Quater 2012.

Yep, maybe these grabby hands can get wrapped around one of these new babies.... will see

Re: DELL Streak (ANDROID)

With your sound problems that you posted in the other thread, try this app and verify your volume levels for all the different volume types.

Thanks Ann(droid154). I will give it a try, however, I think no matter how high I turn up volume controls, its the output that us simply too low since the update. Will post results here.

Thx

Re: DELL Streak (ANDROID)

The only other you might want to check is if the speaker itself has gone bad. I have read of other phones (HTC) doing this

Re: DELL Streak (ANDROID)

I doubt its the speakers going bad.. The up date has caused choppiness in screen transition and video recording is blurry and hangs. All of this occurred at the same exact moment. I need to roll back for sure.
