    I have a T-mobile plan. My T-Mobile Razor phone is no longer picking up in this house. Eleanor Montana/Mike Tipton, 29 11 TH ST Bessemer, Pa., 16112. My T-Mobile # is 646-270-9894. Our home phone is 724-667-8203. I'm mad as hell, so is my Aunt. We are paying for services we are not getting. I want the G-1 asap, please, thank you

  2. Well three things came up when i was experimenting with settings, first thing is screen brightness, i lowered all the way, i think is plenty bright at the lowest setting and as with any lcd the power consumption goes up with the brightness. Second theres a setting for gps satelite. I keep this off when not being used, the maps work great without it but i imagine i will use it at sometime down the road. The setting even says it, go to settings and its under security and location, its the Enable gps satellites setting, it says needs more battery and direct line of sight to the sky. Also this is more of a quirk for the last one, if your in a bad coverage area, i live out in the country so half the time i roam on att tower anyways lol, it will drain your battery a bit while it keeps trying to find signal.
