in the Article: Verizon to Resurrect Unlimited Plan for $80 per Month forum

Like I said "to me the service was terrible", I was paying twice as much than with t-mobile and the data service sucked. Aside from being slower it was spotty and the call quality was like I was talking to robots and the dropped calls, and this was around May last year. It might work for you, but for me it sucks.

Service still sucks

At least for me the service was terrible and the call quality was like being on a cell phone 10 years ago.

I wasn't aware there was set top box bill, and here I thought cable companies were being nice about offering these free apps for subscribers.

I would hope so, but I personally think it would have been easier to leave it as it was than giving customers headaches from switching one company to another. I personally think it was hard enough switching from T-mobile to Verizon and then back to T-mobile (I actually gain money from it) but I wouldn't want to go through that headache again.

How so? All I see in the future is ISPs prioritizing content for the people who pay more. Eventually this will turn into China were you can only watch what the government wants you to watch.

Unfortunately some people don't even bother pairing their phones to the car's bluetooth. I don't know where you live, but here in NY, the amount of distracted drivers I see on a daily basis is staggering.

in the Article: Verizon - Not Google - to Manage Pixel System Updates forum

In a way I'm glad I didn't wait for this device. Once I heard that T-Mobile wasn't going to carry the Nexus 6p I figure some bs like this was going to happen. I really loved my moto Nexus 6, but Google dropped the ball with this one.

in the Article: Verizon to Be Exclusive Carrier Selling Google Pixel Phone forum

More than likely, I tried Verizon for a month last year and the nexus 6 I got from them was full of it. It sucks that only Verizon will carry it. Since T-Mobile didn't carry the Nexus 6P or 5X I knew that this one would be the same story.

NFC

in the Article: Android Pay Rings Up Chase In the US forum

The problem is NFC readers which most retailers disable. I was trying to use samsung pay and because my chase card has a chip it would either decline the transaction or ask me to insert the card. I turned off NFC to use MST and it works like a charm, too bad only samsung pay supports it so far.

I never leave the phone overnight, specially with the fast charger. I remember when I bought my Nexus 6 on release day a few weeks later they started complaining about the phones bulging when charger because of the batteries exploding. That's when I started using the turbo charger only when I was next to it or my moto 360 charger on my night stand which would take around 6-7 hours to fully charge. I intend to charge it while ...

Can I go through Samsung for the exchange or do I have to go through T-Mobile since I got the phone from them?

Re: Carrier customer service number
Sep 2, 2016, 6:15 PM
in the Article: Samsung to Recall Note7 Amid Reports of Fires forum

T-Mobile said that so far they're only offering refunds or exchanges for a different device. Samsung is offering the same but also a new revised note 7. I really like my note 7, I don't want a refund or change it for a different device, but I don't want to burn down my place either.

Should we stop using the phone, or maybe use a non fast charger?

in the Article: WhatsApp Secures Messages with End-to-End Encryption forum

don't get me wrong, I don't want anyone to see what I'm sending but the recipient, but making such an announcement, no one even the government won't be able to see your messages, kinda incites the wrong people to abuse the service. I think they should have just done it without making such a big fuzz about it. I could be wrong, but this is how I see it at the moment.

T-mobile offers a reimbursement of what it costs you to switch over, but at the end of the day you're responsible for paying the other carrier what you owe them for switching. T-Mobile gave me like $500 in bill credits for trading in my verizon phones when I switched (basically free service for 3 months) and two months later I received a prepaid Visa car with $1200, I actually made money on the deal because I only had to ...

Not according to the definition of Net Neutrality "the principle that Internet service providers should enable access to all content and applications regardless of the source, and without favoring or blocking particular products or websites." They're not favoring any service over the other, they're just lowering the video resolution for members who opted for Binge On service. I believe that T-Mobile's first mistake was enabling the service by default on all subscribers (which I got several texts on all ...

But that's just it, nobody is forcing anything on anybody without telling you. bingeon is optional, and you can turn it on and off whenever you want. I got a text on all my numbers explaining the details of the new service and giving me the option to opt out. I opted out all my numbers except my wife's since she eats data watching videos. I don't see the issue with any of it.

It is the same thing with verizon, if you get your phone through installments and decide to leave the company, the entire balance becomes due, so I don't understand what you're trying to say.

Verizon did, it says so on the article. Also, I don't know how big T-Mobile's 911 outage was, but Verizon's lasted for 6 hours and they only got fined $3.4M? http://www.phonescoop.com/articles/article.ph p?a=15495

I had the first 3 generations of iPhones, and the truth is that I got tired of paying a premium price for last year technology and features. Whatever you say about Android fans/users could be said about Apple fan/users (which you just demonstrated how they act when the name Apple comes up in a sentence). BTW jerking off to phones is not my thing no ...

I could say the same thing about an iphone 6 Plus, $949 for the 128GB version. Oh wait, because its an "apple product" designed in california and made in china, its fine. I'm not saying that I agree with the price of these phones, but at least this company is doing something different instead of catching up to the rest like apple with the iphone.

I tried verizon for a month, their service sucks, voice quality sucks, and their prices suck. I switched back to t-mobile, got the $650 credit and I still have the $400 credit from verizon when I first ported from t-mobile. My monthly veryzon bill was $236 a month for 2 lines (wigth EDGE) with 15GB of data because 10GB weren't enough. The truth is that verizon service compared to t-mobile's service is not worth an extra $100 a month. ...

in the Article: T-Mobile Intros Rollover Data, Called Data Stash forum

You spend $250 a month for something that already gives you data (at no extra charge) that you agreed to before the data stash even existed. So you really are asking for more features for the same money. Go see how much more you'll be paying on a different carrier with the features you already have, they probably can match it. I think is a really nice feature, if you pay for extra data you can stash whatever is ...

No doubt about that. I always keep my phone in my back pocket when wearing jeans, but I take it out if I want to sit down, you can call it a reflex. Its really likely to happen with any phone if you are not careful. I remember when I was working in sales and the motorola RAZR was the rage, I would get customers back all the time with cracked screens or split phones (when they put them ...

What I think the issue is with Android, is the UI that manufacturers add on top of it. I used to love HTC sense, but it got boring with the HTC one m7, and I've never liked Samsung's touchwiz (or however you spell it). On that department I think that iOS has the edge, but if you compare it with vanilla android, I go for Android hands down. I currently own a Nexus 5, and I've never had any ...
