it's a good tv.
the reason it's cheap is it doesn't have any internet apps. it's a "dumb" tv. it's still a good tv.
I wouldn't worry about the lack of HDMI inputs. I use one on my tv b/c i have a receiver that does the switching for me....

There is no simple box that will do what you need and pass through the locals in HD. you have a couple of options.
1) repair the tv yourself. good luck.
2) get a cable box from cox. downside you have to pay rental fee.
3) can get a tuner for a pc then connect it to your tv. (my current setu...

It's been awhile since I messed w/ setting mine up, but if I remember you didn't have to convert your sprint number to your google voice number. You could if you wanted to, which I did.
You could always create another google voice account, then attach your sprint number to it as a "office number...

Unless he is getting an OLED which is crazy expensive, a LED tv IS a LCD tv. LCD is the display type, not the backlighting technique. The "lcd" you are referring to is a CFL-LCD. You'd be hard pressed to find a CFL-LCD now. Pretty much have all switched to edge lit LED or the more expensive ones...

i've been with sprint for over 10 years now. i had them while at LSU. I never had trouble w/ texts or phone calls. Even now when i drive in to BR, i don't have issues.
i haven't been home since they upgraded to LTE in BR so i can't speak to that.
also if you are in a rural area and sprint...

I have sprint. Had it in the early 2000's before i moved after college. Never had issues. wasn't the fastest then, but it's gotten better. I haven't had the chance to try LTE down there as it's just spreading like fire over the last month or 2.

I'd recommend you look into a Grand Cherokee. Based off the list you posted it's at the same price range. I got a 2012 back in February and still in love with it. If you are not going serious off (which it could handle) I'd go with the cherokee over the wrangler. Better ride and gas mileage....

Technically the rep you talked to is correct. ALL LCD TV's are backlit. Just a matter of how they are backlit. Most (pretty much all) LED LCD's are edge LED. Unless it says full-array LED backlighting it is probably edge-lit. My dad has a sharp edge-lit and i can't see any blooming in it. The ...
