Further cannibalization of MetroPCS market...
I'm pretty much convinced that T-Mobile is still bitter of all the marketshare MetroPCS stole from them in the past. Since the aquisition, a number of measures have been taken by T-Mobile to downplay their significance. They have plastered the T-Mobile name on EVERYTHING: In-store marketing, TV/Radio spots, to even the splash screen when you startup a Metro phone. They've adopted Metro's 4for100 holiday promo plan but then offered more data. Now they've ...
I doubt it...
So you've never purchased anything using your phone? You haven't setup a payment option for google play, paypal, amazon, ebay etc.? If you have, then your phone's Hardware ID, location, mac address, and other info. was sent along with credit card info. already...whether you willingly do it or not, it's already been done.

Re: I almost....
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:
Except in California?
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...
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.
Re: Optimus Fugly 3
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???
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.
I having trouble figuring out the purpose of apps like this...I mean, are people still on rate plans that limit the amount of sms?
Re: 4K Video is a useless tech
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 ...
Re: 4K Video is a useless tech
So by your logic, the human eye is unable to discern the difference between an image on TV and the reality around you? As long as that's more than a laughable concept, then clearly their's room for improvent.
Re: finally !!!
arox413 said: But seriously who was actually following that rule?? The Wireless Carriers.
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.
Future MetroPCS brand?
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
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.
For those Behold II users upset...
Your a moron for buying a Behold II in the first place! That's the biggest piece of Android crap T-Mobile sells. You only have yourself to blame.
Re: Now that...
Overmann said: PPPPPS--Mac Users claim they never get Viruses. Why does Notron and Trend Micro sell Internet Security Suites for MacOSX? I presume you learn the hard way when you encounter a stealth keylogger and your bank account or so gets hacked and drained. For the same reason they are making their antivirus software for smartphones...People are stupid enough to buy it. :wink:
Re: I eat hot-dogs every day for lunch...
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
Re: Just one more thing...
Versed said: it starts as one small gesure, then become far more involved. I don't want to give the government one more inch. Agreed. It's all baby steps toward their goal of being able to monitor everyone every second of the day. People don't see the big picture. They are OK with it because they don't remember all the baby steps the government has already gone and are oblivious or simply don't care where it leads to. Notice ...
So it's ok for 2 companies to own 100% of web ads?
But when 2 cell companies own 60% of the market, that's a potential problem? /;| The people running this country have no idea what they are doing...
I'm putting my money on the Apple Farmers of America suing over Apple's logo :roll:
Just imagine the possibilities...
I will be able pay for another lapdance without having to leave the private room and use the ATM. I will be able to buy & sell stuff through craigslist with a Credit/Debit Card, thus removing the risk of getting my money jacked by the seller. Best of all, I won't have to worry about having the cash to buy drugs. I can put it on credit! BTW if you haven't realized yet, I think this is ...
Re: Um...that's not saying much...
Agreed. Couple that fact with the common knowledge of a new iPhone coming out in the next 1-2 months and it would be an embarrassment if Android OS were to sell less than the iPhone OS.
I can't Wait!
Eagerly waiting for Gigabit WIFI :-)...
Re: So... no change at all?
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.
This has NOTHING to do with saving the earth...
...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.
Where did you get the idea that it was for 2.0 only? It says right in the phonescoop article that it's available for 1.6 or higher :?
Nope, but it CAN run the calculator version of Dope Wars in it's full two-tone brilliance :D
Re: how come
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. ...
Re: Will Google buy the US division?
No more of a conflict of interest as Apple having it's products on windows computers and vice versa. I can totally see this happening.
FCC Banning Cell Booster Yet Considering Cell Jammer use
Wow, thanks FCC for looking out for our best interests. :roll: I agree that the cell booster market should be more standardized if it actually is causing interference but the logic is completely back wards in this Booster/Jammer issue. How did we let the country get this bad? :(
Re: Bing? Come on...
Poor Yahoo...it's gotta be tough to go from king of the search engines to basically a redirect to another search engine :lol: That's what happens when you sellout your search results to the highest bidder.
Re: Hey guys, look at us! We did good!
I agree...I mean, at the very least, not be the ones to report it. By them announcing it, it makes it sounds more like a cheap publicity stunt rather than a random act of kindness.
Hey guys, look at us! We did good!
Way to toot your own horn T-Mobile. Congrats! :roll:
Re: Will it fry your brain
"This device is 100% completely safe. In fact, if you talk on the phone while it's plugged in, it will enable the device to sync with your brain and harvest energy directly from your body!" No thanks. This sounds like a terrible idea. :?
T-Mobile Equipment Installment Plan.
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 ...
Re: Microsoft got that money

Well obviously if your doing a research paper on the evolution of the internet, DUH! :roll: Yea that would be extremely frustrating to not be able to sort it by date.

Dear Google, Can you buy T-Mobile for Christmas?
Come on Google, you need to just buy T-Mobile and give exclusive rights (or at least Temporary) for all the newest Android devices. 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.
