Apple iPhone 5s was the top selling smartphone in the U.S. last month

0. phoneArena 05 Oct 2013, 12:09 posted on

For those who figured that the mid-range Apple iPhone 5c would cannibalize sales of the Apple iPhone 5s, guess again; the new full-featured version of the iPhone managed to lead all four major U.S. carriers in smartphone sales for the month of September even though the phone didn't launch until September 20th. Over the opening weekend, Apple said it sold 9 million units of the two new iPhone iterations...

No dude, you're way off. You know that incurable thing known as leprosy; he's like that.

Here's some background:

Since you're coming from PhoneDog you'll learn soon enough; this isn't Phone (objective) Arena, it's iPhone (biAsed) Arena.

Seems like you all have been at it for a while. About being racist thats not right but i guess its something that PA should not allow. Im all about talking smack on technology but dont really know what to say about the rest. I gotta say some of the comments made laugh. Sorry man no disrespect.

One of my eployees turned me in to this phone craze thing that we all have. I have always used Blackberry and from there iPhones. Ive heard about how PA makes the iphone better than what it is. I wont lie i still love iPhones for the keyboard and how it would make everything so easy but with my LG G2 i cant seem to put it down, but yet i dont see a lot of talk from PA about how good the phone is. A week in to it and im still customizing it. I guess all i can say is keep the smack talk coming but leave personal life out of the posting. As for PA i hope they are not what you say.

See, it's people like you that give black folks a bad rep', the first thing out of your mouth is always racism, like, "oh, that driver in the Porsche cut off my bus:" racist!! Or, Ronald Reagan cut welfare: racist!! Or, the attendant at the gas station asked me for I.D. with my credit card: racist!! At some point you're gonna' have to come out of the 1960's and realize that not everyone is against you because you're black; it's just cuz' you's a triteful a$$ fool.

And, yes, I'm sure your "vocal" abilities are as good as you say they are but, I'm sure it's one of the few talents that you've been able to develope while sitting for eight hours; that seated height gives you a great vantage point.

Can you point shoot and send a vid, by say mms? Without having to select limit for mms first, I hate that about the galaxy phones. I also own a note 2. Lack of auto edit/auto compression of videos is a pain.

Haven't been following phone stuff much recently. Been doing other stuff. Traveled a bit, learned to cook, studying. I still read articles from time to time just stopped commenting as much.

Of course it made no sense [to you], you think everyone is out to get you because you're black but, grow the Eff'up and come out of that 60's mindset of yours'. I realize life as a child must've been rough for you but, let it go; that's probably why you thought the best you could do in life was what you've been doing for the last 17 years.

Finally, I've broken through. Listen, I don't rag on ugly people, I only rag on ugly people who say they're pretty. And, as for Homie the Clown, "homey don't play dat'!!"

My favorite was Ms. Bonita - go Youtube her (aka Kim Wayans).

P.S. Homey was 2nd or 3rd or 4th Seasons, after that the show got vanilla.

iPhones resize videos in MMS, it's the only good thing they do. Androids do not.

Kind of, VideoTrim or something like that?? Or, just send the video in an email (that should give you a 10mb to 20mb maximum limit depending on the client); I always do since I have Unlimited Data.

They're might be other apps' in the Play Store - just Google Video resize app for mms (or something like that) and something should come up.

Boy I guess we'll be at this all day dude wow! I had a marvelous childhood, and both parents are alive and still live in the family home we grew up in. Never said the last 17 years was the best, but 65,000 a year ain't bad. I'm starting to get a little bored with you, so I ask. What do you wish to accomplish with these rants? I'm not leaving the site, you can't shut me up, you can always catch a flight to Vegas and try. Tell me, the PA users, and moderators what you hope to accomplish, cuz it's getting boring going back and forth with you dude. I can care less about trying to one up you, look l'll let you win this battle of words cuz it truly means nothing to me. It was fun for a while, but now it's just pointless. I drive a bus, and instruct students to drive, my wife's a kindergarten teacher, my son gets excellent grades, stays outta trouble, and plays the big 3 sports. He doesn't field well, so he won't go pro at baseball, he will dunk on you though. I'm trying to give you all the ammo you need to stage a huge verbal assault, to which I promise not to respond to. I figure if I stop responding, you'll go away. So go ahead unleash a good one, and bring Troll In on it too. I black, handsome, tall, fit, work in county transit, great kid, smart sexy wife, have my health, and so does my family oh and we have a Great Dane named torch, who's 1 yr old. What else, I have a jeep, and a dodge charger rt, I used to have a Vette but no longer do. I'm trying to think of everything I can to give you a ton of ammo, cuz after your next tirade, there'll be no response. I'm done it's boring now, and pointless. I'm getting back to talking tech. My wife read over all this, and said baby their idiots, let em win so I'm letting you win so I can get back to enjoying PA. ENJOY YOUR VICTORY DUDE goodbye no more responses/replies...later dude.

Android phones don't auto compress vid files, as PAPINYC said. You'll have to go into camera settings and manually select limit for mms. Your vids won't be longer than a minute, and will be grainy but they'll send.

See, again: R.I.F. (Reading Is Fundamental). I said iPhones resize video in MMS (Post #116). That's okay, I know you're busy making sure you don't run over any little old ladies.

Oh well, now you have one more saving grace: Torch (would've had two but, you sold the Vette). Hey, if your pretty little wife teaches Kindergarten, why doesn't she teach you something?? Anyway, dude, I'm done; that's it; I'm not replying to you anymore; I'm finished; it's over, I tell you (OVER); you couldn't pay me a million pesos to engage you; no amount of gold
can buy me; I'm threw wit' you; talk to the hand cuz' I'm 'bout to roll out; peace (and all that jazz); holla' ............

I happy you love your wife. But isn't facebook a better place to express that? And even on Facebook, would your friends care?

lol ... he only has 1 friend; ninety-six or sixty-nine (something like that). Aside from that, he probably "friends" himself on Spacebook.

But, you're right; he's always expressing his personal life on here and it has nothing to do with tech. 'Let us' see: we know he just got married; his wife is a Kindergarten teacher who obviously can't teach him to write decent English; he's been driving a bus in rural Vegas for 17 years (probably how he met his wife - she was one of his unsuspecting passengers); has a son "supposedly" smart and "supposedly" plays baseball, football and basketball (just not hockey) - can you say projecting delusions of grandeur??; has a pooch named Torch (but, strangely, the dog looks better than he); had a corvette at one point (wooooo, I had a Porsche at one point - but, no need for a car here in Manhattan, we just rent for the day or two); grew up in a house with 10 brothers and sisters, that's why he's so starved for attention (middle child complex); moved out of his parents wayward home into an apartment with crappy cell phone service; what am I missing, I know he's posted a lot more??

Congrats apple/iPhone. We all know that only 3 phones matter, iPhones notes, and s4's. The rest just fill in the pie.
