You can still unlock it.
yeah not chancing it, considering they seem to be retracting the whole deal i will just wait, a hard-bricked optimus g was likely under contract and i doubt at&t(or any other carrier that can legally unlock) will be 100% willing to not try to put one on me as well...

I mean just go to a paid unlock site and order the code. "Yes, this phone was purchased before January 26th to the best of my knowledge."

but there are multiple reasons i'm waiting
another of which is the S4 announcement
the plan is to get the device and use the old avail as practice... LG has shown some interesting things with the G(like the 2core power saving mode) that will hopefully become standard.

Today is the big S4 reveal. Can't seem to get excited since I expect this to be by the books. Google I/o is in two months which is what i'm looking forward too.

How so I mean the S4 looks decent but going by samsungs history its going to be plastic and the Desgin of the phone is highly inferior to other devices on the market.
iphone 5
Lumia 920
Blackberry Z10
HTC One
Nexus 4
Xperia T
all blow the S4 out of the water Desgin wise from the screens we have seen of the S4.

I'd say the only design choice they messed up on is the plastic back. Make it similar to the iPhone 5 back and I'd be sold. But I guess it's understandable considering the phone is so large.

Yes, Because nothing is wrong with the iphone's back panel, just like everything else on it its absolute everlasting perfection from start to finish...

Adds character to the phone. Seriously, the iPod Touch 4G has the most scratchable back I've ever seen in electronics. I like the look better when it's scratched compared to not.

Yes, using your eyes to scroll and 8-core 1.8Ghz CPU is pretty standard stuff.

What the hell does that have to do with what we were talking about? We were talking about the backs of two different phones. The backs. And we weren't talking about huge freaking cracks in the screen, but scratches. On the back of the device.

But cracks add character, why limit yourself to one side when you can have twice the character?

honestly cracks and scratches destroy resale value, nobody will buy that thing up there and i don't know what's worse...  the fact that you can scratch it through normal use, or the fact that you are trying to defend it

I know plenty of people with the same level of scratching on their Android phones. It comes with the territory with something you use the way you use a phone. I have somehow kept my iPhone 4 free of all but the faintest scratches for nearly three years now, and I honestly don't know how I did that.
I'm kind of a snarky bastard.

1. Eh I don't do much reading on my phone and when I do its usually just going through pulse or Press really quickly.
 
2. Da faq you realistically need eight cores on a phone for?  I understood the bloated specs war pre- ICS and maybe Honeycomb when Android ran like crap on anything that wasn't uber overpowered. But Android has gotten to a point of optimization that a phone doesn't need all that power to run smoothly.
But again Samsung is the current Market leader and for whatever reason they have rested on their laurels. Hopefully the S4 looks better in Promo shots and non leaked pictures but i'm not expecting much. Will post a comparison pics after the livestream.

My current phone is on the major fritz and when I go to get a upgrade its looking like my choices are between the Galaxy S4 and the HTC one. "sigh"


Both are decent phones but have alot of stuff I dislike about them.


-The galaxy S 4 has bad design imo
-The htc one has bad battery life apparently
-I dislike how big the screen is on both.


But right now those two, the note II, and the BB Z10 are the only phones set for Tmobile's LTE network.

the galaxy phones have great material for durability but Samsung doesn't seem to know how to make it look nice

Sounds like it's time to switch to a better network ;)

Lack of good design and small screen sizes is probably my biggest complaint about Samsung products.


If Samsung could make a phone with the design of an apple/nokia/htc I'd be in heaven. 




and switching to a better network wouldn't really help as all the Carriers are pretty much stuck to having high end and not carrying a stock android device.

Samsung is great at making phones with the design of an Apple product. A federal judge said so.
