 ASL Video – Approx 5:16 Minutes Long

Grant discussed about newest cell phone called T-Mobile "G1" Phone based on Android technology.

Of course, every phone has its own pro and con including G1 phone. He feels that this phone is going get better and better over times. Gmail is awesome and easy to use.

One negative about it — vibration is not strongest at this time but he feels it can be fixed easily. He’ve contacted couple Android developer about it. We will see how it goes next few months hopefully.

If you have G1 phone, please share your thought with us!

Note #1: According to DVTV, Grant mentioned about $35 a month unlimited (data plan) — Again, T-Mobile doesn’t offer unlimited data plan without voice package for this device yet but if you are on family plan, you can add G1 phone for only $35 a month unlimited. Yes, it is unfortunately.

Note #2: Click HD if you want to see better quality of video.

Cell Phone Scams

30 06 2008

ASL Video – Approx 3:39 Minutes Long

Not too long ago, Grant discovered hidden premium fee on T-Mobile (Sidekick II) thru monthly statement online. Same thing goes with his Sprint Treo 755p, unfortunately.

Grant probably lost few hundred dollars because he’s not paying attention to statement carefully. He looked up Google and discovered that he’s not alone. Many people got scammed out of it, too. He may get some money back but who knows.

This is real example at http://myluvcrush.ca/ and others — you can look at it but do not put your cell phone number on it. It will automatically take small fee from your cell phone bills.

Once a while, please check your statement online (or mail out) from time to time. It shouldn’t be that hard to notice when there’s hidden fee in it. (price difference, etc.)

Does anybody have similar problem as ours?
