There is a reason companies do this it is to draw in potential customers that have doubted the product prior. In the iPhone example say you are a loyal android user you would never use Apple. But now when they say the iPhone 7 is the greatest phone yet. You may have people that say alright alright I will give the iPhone a chance. This happens enough times and that is a major jump in usership.

Does anybody know how to log into the You Tube Music Key? Because I am subscribed to Google Play Music and once subscribed the Music Key will be provided free. By the way if this service is what it appears to be Spotify now has some serious competition. Any input will help thanks PhoneScoop friends.

in the Article: Sprint Says Its Trade-In Program Beats T-Mobile's forum

The way it works is almost the same. That you will get top dollar for each trade in with either company. However Sprint just ups it to 3 trade ins at a given per line. As opposed to T-Mobile only offering for one trade-in per line. But as far as it goes for you the consumer it is not like you have a choice. You have to work with the company you use. You will not ...

in the Article: Verizon to Restrict Heaviest 'Unlimited' LTE Users forum

I agree with the statement you pay for and have use it. My statement was saying it is getting harder for cell companies to afford to keep unlimited as an option. They are keeping their word that those that have it can keep it. But keep in mind it is considered grandfathering in and is only meant for a reasonable amount of time past the promotion expiration. Usually 2-3 years beyond. Never is the word forever mentioned as nothing ...

in the Article: Verizon to Restrict Heaviest 'Unlimited' LTE Users forum

The one thing people don't realize is back when Verizon began the unlimited plan not only did people not use much data but the quality of the data was much lower. I'm sure we all remember the constant buffering. Also the grainy picture quality. So of course with the high speed we have and the HD effects we get on the screen doesn't that account for anything. Plus remember even though phone companies limit our data do we not ...

Re: AT&T talked me out of buying a new phone today
Apr 21, 2014, 11:19 PM
in the AT&T forum

But why is it like that? Going forward it will be very difficult to purchase a new phone. It is like get a new phone or keep a discount. That's the part that makes these new plans suck.

Re: Kit Kat Disappointing

in the AT&T forum

Are you kidding Android isn't going anywhere. Iphone is in a much weaker state than Android as every phone and virtually every update is the same. The thing is about the Android is that there is only so many updates that are realistic. People think so much can be done to a phone and the reality is that it is just a phone and not some magical device.

Most manufacture do this practice. It is just less obvious at times. As for companies potentially losing money because they don't do a complete over is not a factor. Because they don't lose money. As many people who were going to do an upgrade will they just act like they won't. Even though it is not a complete overhaul the S5 still has many new and better offerings than the S4 for those that carefully ...

Ever since the news broke out that the S5 will be coming out people were disappointed that three was not enough amo in the phone to switch from the S4. There is a reason for that. Samsungs goal was to to sway away S4 to the S5. Remember phone companies base their production on 2 year contracts. Therefore rather than S4 users they are appealing to the S2 or S3 users. For them the ...

Re: The New Mobile Share Value plan

in the AT&T forum

The one big benefit that nobody sees is the fact they give you 15 dollars off the plan if you qualify through the Next program. Doesn't sound like much but look at it this way. When you have that 15 dollar credit you can add a brand new phone of your choice under the new 18 month next program the monthly installment on most of the phones cost under 20 dollars. Therefore you ...

These plans don't exactly save money. But it does turn out to put a few dollars back in your pocket. Plus gaining unlimited talk in the process isn't so bad. It's a more complete plan.

Samsung Battery Compatibility Question

Hi I own a Samsung Galaxy Express. What I wanted to know are all battery compartments on all Samsung the same. The reason I ask is there are other Samsung phones that have higher mAh. So if I bought a battery for say a Galaxy Mega or S4 will it fit and work in my phone? So it can give the phone higher power like an extended battery used to do but still looking ...

Ok yes companies like Verizon and AT&T are very greedy and consumer unfriendly with their policies. Especially taking away the ability to get reduced pricing prior to the 2 years. Now we all get angry at these companies for doing so. But us consumers never see things through their eyes. How many times are three people you know and the many thousand clients here on phonescoop talk about the many phones they buy in a ...

I recently purchased a new Motorola Droid Pro unlocked. It is mostly unlocked but not fully. Motorola told me that I need to obtain a subsidiary code from Verizon. To use on the Tmobile. However the Jackasses Verizon always is refuses to release it because I am not a Verizon customer. Is there any way around getting the code to get this phone to work for me? I don't want to ...

All I hope is that this phone works because I paid for it. This ebayer ad promises it will work on the Tmobile network before it ships out. He has sold multiple thousands of unlocked phones and has nearly a perfect rating.

Thank you for responding epik. I purchaed this phone from a major vendor on Ebay that specializes in unlocked phones. For example this is a Verizon phone but as long as it takes a SIM card they can set it up for me to use on the Tmobile network. That might be what you call rooting. I am not technical so im not sure. but if so then i would be halfway home to get the update ...

I was wondering if tmo was having any new exciting plans in the works for the holiday season. My hope is they com up with a competing plan for sprints everything data plus anymobile anytime for for 69.99. That is a sweet deal. Right now I am on a 1000 min smart phone plan for 89.99. It would be nice to get a better deal. However, tmobile service is way better than sprint. ...

I went of to Tmobile they offered me a very comprable phone the Motorola Charm for free. I was a great choice as it packs in the best of droid with the best of a quick messaging phone.

I never understood why cell phones retail so high. How do the LG's and Motorola's of the world get away with that. Sure they do a lot of nice things. But still they are just a phone. I can almost guarantee it doesnt take more than 50-75 bucks to make. 409-599 is an exuberant of a mark-up for something that is not even made well. If you ask any technician in a cell ...

I am really impressed with the new set-up T-Mobile has. In where a person can have the same benefits of post paid customer but w/o the contract. Sure you have to pay full retail price for the phone. But they thought that out as well. By offering the consumer financing for the phone. Plus no interest it is a win win situation. Especially for a person who is on a limited budget but can afford a Blackberry plan but ...
