    My biggest phone complaint: That 6 year olds are getting $200 smartphones.

    Who the hell are you gonna call? The Teletubbies?

    But not only that. The cost is very expensive to a crap service.
    And after some troubles with the company, I opted for do not have any cell phone (which I named "f... electronic dog-collar'').

    I have very few problems with USCellular but every once in a while it might take the network a little more time to load but mainly it's the app and not the actual connection itself.
    I love USCellular.

    or people who send me one worded -or even worse, one lettered- text messages

    but that's more of a personal problem that the cell phone company can't help me with...

    My biggest complaint is that too many people are texting and driving and carelessly thinking that they won't cause any harm.

    Hahaha ... I work for Verizon Wireless, you best believe this is a true study ROFL! Altho with VZW, dropped calls aren't nearly as prevalent as they are with some other carriers. I'd still never use VZW as my provider tho, I'm a TMobile fan boy cuz I worked there first for years :D

    Actually , what I can't stand the most is when I get an "echo" back after speaking. I usually tell the person I'm talking with that I will call them right back and hang up. Normally the echo won't occur 2 calls in a row.

    Texts from jerks that I don't know piss me off the most. My phone needs charging after about 3 of these. MORONS!!!
  • mark Flaming... 2012/08/05 04:56:27
    I used to get long , drawn out text messages complete with music from people I didn't know. Usually they were about love , such as "The Perfect Man". After about a year they pretty much stopped. They probably went broke trying to pay for the messaging and music.

    I hate dropped calls. I seldom use my cell phone, but when I do it's an important call that's why I carry it in my car in case of an emergency.

    Not exactly slow download speed, but poor coverage for internet overall. I'm on Verizon and it seems like their internet network, in most areas, was flawless about a year ago. For some reason today I can only get internet where I live about 30% of the time. They still have the best coverage though, and I am grandfathered in for the $30 unlimited data.

    None of the above, actually. What irks me is that many companies INSIST on installing its Android apps on my phone, even though I'LL NEVER USE THEM, and removing the ability to uninstall them so that they're stuck on my phone, eating up precious space on my phone's storage. And to add to the annoyance, I couldn't remove them without rooting my phone and voiding the warranty.

    It was a nightmare on my last phone. AT&T;'s preinstalled apps ate up a good portion of my storage space, so much that I had to use my phone's SD card to store some of the apps I downloaded so I'd have room on the phone to download other apps, and every time an update came up for an app on the SD card, I had to move it to my phone's internal storage to update it because you couldn't update apps on the SD card unless you moved them to the phone's internal storage. It ate up a good portion of the time I spent on that device.

    But even worse ... the feds allowing publication of cell phone numbers so you get to pay for all those telemarketing calls.
