Moshi for iPad
  • One need only look to the recent iPhone 5 hysteria, the raging legal battle between Apple and Samsung, or the righteous tone adopted in ads for most of the latest smartphones to know that some people take cell phones pretty seriously.


    Thankfully, however, there are still a few good laughs to be had when it comes to mobile devices, and Pure Mobile is counting down our list of the best and funniest cell phone ads throughout the years. They're a good antidote to some of today's more buttoned-up advertising, which deals in hard facts, or promises some great technical advancement for mankind.


    As much as we like heavy hitters like Samsung, Nokia, Apple and BlackBerry, we'd rather watch a middle-aged French woman breakdance, or the little green Android mascot burp than hear about specs any day.


    Korean Android ad


    We're not really sure what's going on in this Korean ad for Android, but the OS' little green spokes-alien sure sounds like he enjoyed his sandwich.



    AT&T's Family Rollover Minutes


    A mom guilt-trip at its finest. But the funniest part of this commercial isn't even seeing mom's typical “no waste” lecture framed in the context of cell phones, it's dad's resigned and exhausted little sigh. Watch for it.



    Motorola's Stripping Wife


    This older Motorola ad works the obvious appeal of an attractive woman removing clothing piece by piece – imagine the effect on a larger Galaxy or iPhone screen – but there's also a refreshing little punchline at the end.



    Postbank's Rich Husband


    This one isn't actually actually an ad for a cell phone, but we couldn't resist including it in this list, if only for the way it leads you astray right until the end. The ad's rich also handles things like a complete boss.



    Vodafone's Mom Ringtones


    This Vodafone ad from France has a mom acting sexy, looking like a zombie, and breakdancing, all at the switch of a ringtone. Classic.



    T-Mobile's “Who's in your 5?” ads


    These two ads from T-Mobile are so hilariously awkward that they definitely make our “Fave 5” cell phone commercials. One has two buds at odds over a secret crush (note the sly “foot massage” reference to Marcellus Wallace in Pulp Fiction.)


    The other shows a teen boy hopelessly intimidated by his girlfriend's dad. Pops is a little scary, but somehow, you feel for him.




    Dutch Not-So Refreshing Dip


    This Dutch cell phone ad shows that IKEA doesn't have a monopoly on funny Scandinavian advertising. It's got an ick factor, but it's certainly, erm, refreshing.



    Vodafone's Breaking the News Quick


    Sometimes, less is more. So we'll follow the example set by Vodafone in this ultra progressive, ultra-abbreviated ad, and leave things off short and sweet. Hope this list gave you a few chuckles!

    The best price out there for an unlocked GSM Samsung Galaxy Nexus just got even more attractive. Google dropped the price of the unlocked HSPA+ version of the Galaxy Nexus by $50 to $349 – comparable to what you’d pay for many devices on contract. According to the Google Play ad, the unlocked smartphone can be used on AT&T, T-Mobile, or “more than 200 GSM providers worldwide.”


    Samsung Galaxy Nexus HSPA+ price drops to $349


    Before those of you who already purchased your Galaxy Nexus from Google Play start complaining that your timing sucked, if you made your purchase within the 15 days prior to this price reduction announcement, Google will refund you the extra $50.


    The Galaxy Nexus features a 4.65-inch 720p HD display and dual-core processor. It runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and will be one of the first phones to get the new Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS next month. Orders for the Galaxy Nexus can be placed directly through the Google Play Store now.

    The owners of Samsung Galaxy S2 devices on the AT&T network have finally received Android 4.0, and Samsung promises not to take it away again.  Last week, a few AT&T customers reported that one minute they had access to the Ice Cream Sandwich update on their phone and the next they didn’t.


    Yes, the Ice Cream Sandwich update is yours to keep For AT&T Samsung Galaxy S2 owners


    Samsung apparently yanked the updates from the Kies app, saying they hadn’t finished their testing. Now it looks like Samsung has already put everything back in its place because users are reporting that the update is running smoothly again.


    If you’d like to see what the ICS looks like on the Samsung Galaxy S2, check out the pictures posted in the XDA Developers forum.


    T-Mobile Galaxy S2 users have been enjoying their ICS since June 12. We hope AT&T is done monkeying around with theirs.

  • Hey, T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S 2 owners:  your Android 4.0.3 is ready for you. If you want it, you’ve got to go and get it yourself. Samsung requires you use their Kies software from a computer to download and install the update, so it’s not available directly to your cell phone.


    T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S II owners: Android 4.0.3 is ready


    Now if you want to use it, you’ll need to work a little more to find what’s different about this Android version. Samsung’s TouchWiz touch interface looks pretty much the same as the last version, so the changes won’t be blatantly obvious.


    The Android 4.0 update incorporates the majority of the new features Google introduced with the Ice Cream Sandwich version for new devices. Learn how to install ICS on your phone from T-Mobile’s support page. To learn more about all the changes included in the new OS, T-Mobile has put together a detailed “Top 10 things to know about TouchWiz Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS): Samsung Galaxy S II” page on its site as well.

    T Mobile Unlimited Mobile to MobileThe telecommunications conglomerates of the United States are in a continual battle to win and retain customers with any number of promotions, gimmicks, technology and good old fashioned monopolistic practices.  practically all service providers engage customers by luring them with the latest smartphones and tie them in exclusive long term (typically 3 year contracts) which they provide voice and data service at exorbitant costs.


    In an era where there is a rapidly shrinking pool of “green field” customers that are not tied to a mobile carrier or cell phone provider, these carriers have to keep pace with one another.


    With this in mind, it is little wonder that T-Mobile has a rumor floating about regarding its cell phone plans.


    According to TmoNews, there are training materials being circulated in the company that give credence to the gossip that the country’s fourth largest wireless provider will finally be adding an “Unlimited Any Mobile” phone plan.


    Enhance your mobility and turn your device into a power tool!  Discover select accessories such as; stylus & pens, micro SD memory cards, batteries, docking stations, Bluetooth headsets, data cables and glider gloves all specifically designed to make your devices functionally efficient and performance rich.


    The add-on is expected to be available early next month and can be added to existing T-Mobile plans for a reasonable $10 a month. The one caveat is that there are some exceptions to plans this can be tacked on to. The good news is that there are no additional contractual agreements that need to be signed to enjoy the freedom of unlimited mobile to mobile talk time.


    AT&T customers currently have this kind of plan available when choosing a contract that includes unlimited text messaging and Sprint users have long enjoyed the benefit of free mobile to mobile.  But, as we move from call-centric mobile usage to increased messaging (SMS or MMS) one wonders if this is too little too late to retain and win back lost customers.


    Leaving your valuable mobile devices unprotected is risky!  Discover the latest innovative protection solutions... stylish top brand bags, sleeves and cases specifically designed to protect your devices from scratches and blemishes.  Tough on the outside, sweet on the inside these brand name protection accessories combine complete device coverage with sleek artistic expression.


    Hopefully, with the latest LTE 4G capable Nokia phones and up and coming tablets, T-Mobile will find its footing once again and keep the mobile market competitive and prevent technological monopolization that leaves consumers as the loser when their choices in plans, contracts and unlocked devices become more limited in their search for the best technology.

    T Mobile


    T-Mobile is looking to make bold moves that could potentially be game changers. In an increasingly competitive field that is being predominantly shaped both technology and device manufacturers rather than the telecommunications companies themselves, it is any wonder that T-Mobile is looking to change the game than continue to struggle with the rules of engagement as they currently stand.


    Leaving your valuable mobile devices unprotected is risky!  Discover the latest innovative protection solutions... stylish top brand bags, sleeves and cases specifically designed to protect your devices from scratches and blemishes.  Tough on the outside, sweet on the inside these brand name protection accessories combine complete device coverage with sleek artistic expression.


    So, when T-Mobile’s chief marketing officer, Cole Brodman voiced strong opinions relative carrier subsidies by claiming they adversely affecting the mobile industry... his words had deep and reverberating echoes.


    According to Mr. Brodman, these subsidies are doing more damage than good to the mobile industry. He explained it as “It actually distorts what devices actually cost and it causes OEMs, carriers — everybody to compete on different playing fields, and I think it is really difficult, especially from a consumer perspective, because it causes consumers to devalue completely the hardware they are using […] It is amazing hardware, but it has become kind of throw away. So, it is unfortunate, you’ve got dual-core, multiprocessor devices with amazing HD screens that get thrown away at 18 months.”

    And to be fair, he has a point. We live in an era of consumption and instant gratification. If something new comes out, we want the bragging rights of being the first of our friends and family to have said technology - the Apple product lines exemplifies this consumer appetite.  The subsidies make it easier to underuse and undervalue the hardware in our hands because it is relatively easy and inexpensive to replace when signing multi-year contracts with purchase. Still, there are battery, memory and other accessories that, Cole Brodman, spoke at the most recent GeekWire technology summit in Seattle and voiced opinions about carrier subsidies that are contrary to the norm, it was an expectedly unexpected move t can extend the life and functionality of these devices.


    In fact, this may well be revolutionary talk to the current regime. With unlocked cell phones consumers can choose a carrier based on service and best plans. If the telecommunications carriers played by that game, consumers would have more choice and carriers could do what they do best: provide service at a reasonable price.


    If the other carriers choose to not follow suit, this kind of move is risky. Brodman believes that if subsidies are removed, the company could compete without the iPhone 4S series as they “have fantastic alternate choices” spanning Android, Windows, and RIM platforms.

  • If you are a current subscriber to T-Mobile’s 5GB webConnect data plan the recent announcement made by the wireless network may be some good news or bad news depending on how you look at it.  T-Mobile recently announced that the carrier will no longer be charging its $.20 per megabyte overage fee for any data used beyond the 5GB limit.  Instead of these overage fees the wireless network will be implementing bandwidth throttling on any data used on top of the standard 5GB.  While T-Mobile did not say exactly how much they will slow things down this latest announcement effectively makes the 5GB webConnect data plan an unlimited plan. 


    This new data structure will also affect those customers who are on the 200MB monthly plan for their iPhone or other devices.  While these customers will not see any bandwidth throttling they will see their overage charges cut in half from $.20 to $.10 per megabyte.  Both changes are effective immediately.



    While it will depend on how much data you consume via your mobile device for how you view this latest announcement I would take it as a positive addition to their 5GB data plan by T-Mobile.  No longer will you have to incur those nasty overage fees when you use more than your allotted 5GB of data.  Instead now you will just have your data throttled which will mean slower loading times.  Of course if the loading time is so slow that you can not even use the data feature of your device it will be worthless but I do not see T-Mobile making the web that slow.  I know I will welcome the ability to use as much data as I want on my HTC Android device without fears of having an astronomical phone bill.
