First they're not going to follow TMO & ATT with data roll over. Now they're raising prices for activation's & upgrades. They're really trying to win customers over with their "We're the best and most expensive. Take it or leave it" motto.
If enough customers left, they'd change their tune.
Ain't that the truth!
"None of the major U.S. carriers have yet announced plans to improve the speeds of their LTE networks to these levels." How about just improving!?! Seems as if T-Mobile is the only carrier doing anything.
TMO MMS Question
It appears on the iPhone with Wi-Fi calling enabled you aren't able to send picture messages. If you disable Wi-Fi calling but still are hooked up to a Wi-Fi network, or no Wi-Fi MMS go through fine. Is this just a iPhone thing or do Android phones on TMO suffer from this as well?? Thanks
LOL! I just renewed my $60 2GB plan yesterday. Bastards! 8O So what about the data overage with the single plan? It wasn't to long ago that the plan already cost $75 and overage was $15/GB. Then VZW dropped the plan to $60 and overage to $10. Is the overage going to go back up?
NFL Mobile Question
I see on VZW with the NFL Mobile app you can watch live games for a monthly fee or if you're on a everything share plan. You can download the app to any smartphone on any other carrier. But my question is can you get the live games?? On my VZW smartphone it will give me a preview of a live game then come up and say to continue it's $5.99/month. On my TMO smartphone the NFL Mobile app just plays highlights, ...
Re: Other Carriers...
I'm wondering as VoLTE rolls out if carriers are going to levy it only working on their network at first to try to get more subscribers? You know, "We offer the best calling quality. But only on OUR network."
VoLTE Between carriers
Will HD calling work between carriers? Or will each carrier's HD calling only work within it's own network? :?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x8jEi-g9hHI You maybe right after all. Confusing...yes.
"CellSpot delivers a full-bars T-Mobile experience" There's also a video that explains/shows this as well.
Think of it as a cell tower repeater using the internet you already have. Your cell strength indicator should go up using this device not your WiFi indicator. Plus it still needs to be plugged into the internet to work. All carriers already offer this type of device.
iPhone 5S unlock question
I have an ATT iPhone 5S that I unlocked, same model number of the Verizon iPhone 5S. But when I go to activate it it says 'No Service' and it won't allow me to activate online either. I'm just swapping my nano SIM from my Droid Maxx to the iPhone 5S, I figured it should work. Thought that was the point of the iPhone 5S being the same across most carriers here in the US.
Re: I didn't think
It was a long time ago. Think when Sprint didn't have MMS yet and was using 'Picture Message'
I didn't think
Sprint even had enough customers or data speeds worth throttling? :o Who knew!?! I gave up on Sprint long ago when I had to turn Wi-Fi off just to receive picture messages.
The 'One-handed operation' mode look like? Saw it there in the video.
Re: Data plans
I saw those as well but still seemed too pricey.
Am I missing something? Why does ATT only offer a 5GB/$50 plan for hotspots and other internet devices? I don't need 5GB and I don't want to pay $50/month. I was looking for something like T-Mobile's 2GB/$30 data plan.
But did you notice...
I've been looking at the Droid Maxx because the full retail was $400. Now it's back up to $600. It's VZW, we're not saving any money. :x
Re: Let's hope this doesn't happen
If they let T-Mobile run it I'm all for it.
Camera after update
Seems to of made my camera worse. Seems quicker, no longer shows what you were taking a picture of when you close running apps. But picture quality in low light or lots of light colors seem to be worse.
Moto X just updated
To Android 4.4 Kit-Kat, OTA. :o
Re: "more comfortable when placed in back pockets"
Girls do it, keep their phones in their back pocket. I see it all the time at work. You wear jeans, where to keep a big 4-5" phone? Not in the front pocket of girly jeans. The back pocket.
Businesses be lining up for this deal? 8O
Re: What happened!?! Ported out...
And to top it off ATT sent me the wrong size SIM. What's the point of giving them the IMEI if they aren't going to send the correct SIM? :x I needed a nano SIM for my Moto X. But I was able to trim the one that was sent to me down to size. And my phone is up and running now. :) But I still may drop by a ATT store and get an ...
I think it made my Moto X's camera worse, especially in low light. /;|
What happened!?! Ported out...
I have an ATT phone so I ordered a SIM card only, entered all the info to port out of VZW. SIM card isn't supposed to arrive for a couple days, but my current VZW phone quit working yesterday. :? As if someone completed the port out already. But usually you need to actually put the SIM card into the new phone before you loose service on your old phone. Little miffed that I'm without service for a few ...
Re: I have LTE where I live. . .but. . .
You're lucky. I live in an area where Verizon's LTE has hit the wall. They need to go back and improve these areas.
Re: Why no LTE on my Gophone
I went to an ATT store and my GoPhone SIM card wasn't an LTE one. Swapped SIM out and now I get LTE.
Why no LTE on my Gophone
I just activated a prepaid GS3 and thought ATT opened up LTE to their prepaid customers. I'm in a LTE area, but my phones not showing it anywhere.
Later this year
As with everything Verizon. Don't dare disturb the Droid line up.
Where's the SIM tray? Verizon site says "4FF Preinstalled SIM"
SIM card On the MINI
Where's the SIM tray? Verizon site says "4FF Preinstalled SIM"
Where's the SIM tray? Verizon site says "4FF Preinstalled SIM" Yeah, this one can be deleted.
Of these new Droids have a notification LED anymore? /;|
Re: Let's hope
Since the screen technology is the same on both. Maybe it has something to do with the smaller screen size on the original RAZR MAXX vs the HD. http://www.phonescoop.com/phones/compa re.php?p=3643,3904
They doing something about the HD's screens. Now that it's summer time I've really become annoyed at my RAZR HD Maxx. Direct sunlight outside, in a car, by the window even with the brightness all the way up I can barely see what's in the screen. :evil: Combine that with wearing sunglasses...forget about it! iPhone and Droid DNA, no problem.
Re: Voice mail notifications
GrinderCB said: iPhone uses its own voicemail system, different from the carrier-supplied voicemail that all other VZW phones use. If you upgraded from iPhone to an Android then you have to go in and set up the voicemail box all over again. Messages stored in the iPhone voicemail box do not directly transfer over. From the new Android, try dialing *86 and see if you get prompted to setup voicemail for the first time. That's the thing, I ...
Voice mail notifications
Not coming through after going from iPhone to Android. 8O Any ideas? And if I put my SIM back in my iPhone I'll get the notification of awaiting VM. :?
Re: Switched Sim Card and activated phone myself. Bad Idea?
It doesn't matter. People do it all the time between smartphones. If you log into your MyVerizon you'll see they already know what phone you're now using.
Re: GPS Always on
Right. But wouldn't you want the app to use when you open it. Not leave the GPS always running?
