Now we have proof of smartphone residual low freq. radiation!
Umm.... Actually, that photo was taken long before the residual low freq. radiation had taken effect.... But, well, you know, beauty is only skin deep (and in the eye of the beholder of course!). I was hoping you might notice the nice layout and functionality of my call screen.... Also long distance reception is quite good on T-mobile!

I think that image is an excellent excellent selfie of a person using android, iOS or windows...at least in the eyes of TMO user

I have always felt like ET here

I once remember Dave999 commenting that electronics are cheaper in the US. It appears he is right based on this article:

http://www.cnet.com/news/galaxy-note...tart-tomorrow/

GN4 can be had for about $700 to $750. Can subtract another $200 if you trade in any smart phone (maybe this offer is good elsewhere as well)!

Is it really cheaper? even after currency exchange and import fees?
Or do you mean the prices are good in comparison...because really ....everything is relative...their economy is rough, the average joe doesn't know if they'll be employed next week / month / year...let alone go further in debt...unpaid bills or lose their home (been down across the border since the econo dived?...alotta communities have huge swathes of abandoned homes)...and wages for the average american are abysmal ......a point of ref. for example.....min. wage is mitey low in the U.S....always has been.
...so what everyone else sees as low prices are purely relative.
Anytime there are low prices...anywhere...there is a price for that..and it is in lower wages to accommodate that lower price.

I think it is cheaper, and despite US having a lower average salary... they have a much lower average expenditure.

So all-in-all, they have it good. Unless you value privacy or you are a stereotype (in particular of Middle Eastern descent).

Is the offer of $200 for smart phone trade in good outside US?

Ok, If I decide to go for the Note 4, which phone should I trade in to get the $200.

N900 (I have two), OGN, GN2, GN3, Jolla phone?

Are the N900 functional, and do you use them anymore?
Maybe get rid of one of them.

What about the Jolla, use that often or is it collecting dust?
Otherwise, trade in the OG NOTE.

...I think its limited to USA only, but if you be polite and ask who knows !

If anyone kept their free Lumia 800, T-Mobile will give you $23 for it.

Trade in jolla. Its the least useful device I have ever met, and i have just faced a major issue With mine. You can't get a new battery without buying the whole Phone for 349 eUR. Im both dissapointed and a bit mad actully.

Whoa!
Holy Crap Dave!
Yea..I'd be dumping any device if I was told I had to buy a whole new phone...JUST for the batt. One of the joys of the built in batt....which is one more reason I like a removable batt.
Lost my support in half a heartbeat...not even a whole heartbeat of time.
Yea...I'd be mitey steamed too dave.
Just my opinion...but I think sanity dictates that dumping the least supported device makes very smart sense ...regardless who makes it.
If it were me...in your shoes...under the same circumstances....the Jolla would be gone.
Feel for you man...
