in the Article: MetroPCS Says It Now Has Nationwide Footprint forum

Acording to the most recent (2012) US Census report, their are 313.9 million people living here. The network covers 200 million people. Simple math would indicate that actually it will/does work for most people. :wink:

in the Article: Apple Halves iPhone Return Window, Now 14 Days forum

I'm curious if they've changed the return window in California. Carriers are required by law to offer a 30 day return policy on contracted phones. So either it didn't change or it only changed for outright purchases, which seems like it would lead to alot of confusion...

in the Article: T-Mobile to Sell Kyocera Hydro XTRM Via B2B Channel forum

This phone is for sell at MetroPCS stores as well and is priced at $169. While the specs are reasonable for the price, the phone is super glitchy and I would highly discourage anyone from purchasing it until an update is released until to fix those issues.

Well if they told you that, then what reason would you have to purchase the phone there when you could go to MetroPCS and pay $50 less for the phone and $10 less per month? :wink: edit: sorry I had the Lumia 521 in mind, scratch that

Re: SMS Overages???
Jul 18, 2013, 1:58 PM
in the Article: Samsung's ChatOn Expands to All Windows Phones forum

Well for starters, because the free service relies on an app that each person has to download in order to send/receive messages. For that reason alone, it's not nearly as useful as traditional SMS. It's the same reason people pay a cellphone bill at all. Technically, you can get Talk, Text and Web for free through a combination of VoIP and apps like this using wifi at various locations.

SMS Overages???

I think we are arguing 2 different points, so we'll focus on your point. Even if what your saying is scientific fact, I would still argue that real world comparisons paint a different picture. Maybe because in the real world, that whole part about "recommended viewing distance" plays a much bigger role. Now correct me if I'm wrong but what they actually mean by the 'recommended' viewing distance is the optimum distance. So if that does hold true, then ...

Depends on how you look at it. If you're using network size to base your decision on what's better or worse then I'd agree with you. However you're basing it on the actual quality and reliability of the network, it's a completely different story.

Well considering that Metro is currently selling 4g phones as low as $49(after $50 mir) or $79 no rebate, I'm pretty sure phone price won't be an issue when they shut down the CDMA network 2 years from now.

Considering how closely this resembles Metro's offering, I'm willing to bet this is in preperation for the merger and possibly the future brand of MetroPCS. Thoughts?

Disabling Google Kill-switch
Jun 25, 2010, 1:17 PM
in the Article: Google Remotely Kills 2 Apps from Android Handsets forum

Someone needs to create an apps for rooted devices to disable the kill-switch, similar to the SBSettings app on jailbroken iPhones. Anyone think this is possible? I have a feeling this will turn into standard procedure for not only Applications Google deems "Dangerous" but once carriers catch wind of this, they will be pushing Google to remove things as well.

Their are situations where driving without a seatbelt and riding a bike without a helmet is the better choice. Like if your in an accident and the car catches on fire but you can't get out because the seatbelt is jammed. Or when your riding a bike and you wanna show off your cool new hairstyle to a group of hotties outside of the bar your riding past. 8) :D

Nicely Put :D ANY company is for sale if offered enough money...Especially a company that's experiencing a downward trend. Hell, I hope for T-Mobile's sake someone buys them out. Then T-Mobile might get some management that will put the company through the twelve-step (business) program. T-Mobile needs management that will get them clean and sobor to end the self destruction that's been going on internally for the past year.

...and EVERYTHING to do with cutting costs. Keep your paper bills people, don't buy into this false "Green" Movement. If you have zero use for a paper bill then setup paperless billing, otherwise keep it. Your not a better or worse person for choosing one or the other. Your not helping Mother Earth by choosing paperless, so get your head outta your crotch and stop smelling your own farts.

You must work for the company considering you used the term "Earth Shattering" (T-Mobile's lame catch phrase for it's failed @Home product :roll: ). It's also pretty apparent T-Mobile has brainwashed you to be an overly positive robot douche. Since when did losing 70,000 net activations start being considered "Doing well"? That's T-Mobile 2009 Q3 sales numbers. Q4 numbers have yet to be released but you can bet you'll see similar loses. ...

Just to further clarify, on a contract plan you can divide the subsidized phone cost into 4 payments. The 1st payment plus the full amount of the sales tax is required in-store. If you decide to go the no contract route, you can split it into 20 payments with the 1st payment and tax required up front...depending on your credit. This is a great option for customers and because the plans are at least 10 bucks ...

If you throw some money into the network, Change the name to G-Mobile, and run it like the rest of your offspring, you could turn this company around and make it great again.
