Your argument doesn't make much sense. Why does it matter if they copy Tmob or Verizon or AT&T if it's giving away free UNLIMITED data the customer wins.

They can't use their original business model any longer with the big boys bringing out equally great phones with equal or lower price points. Motorola and ASUS gotta be putting the pinch on OnePlus at this point with immediate availability and tons of customization options.

no LTE There needs to be a great little flip available to the market, I believe there is enough desire to warrant putting one out there but it can't be just some POS like this.

Same general idea that Motorola uses on their devices now, just in a different way. Still pretty neat

and it's a new company with a less than stellar tech history which has bought out the grand daddy of all IT/mobile companies that everyone in the world knows and has some degree of positive experience with. USE MOTOROLA.... it's that simple (in my mind).... the only reason not to use it (as I see it) is pride.

You make a statement like "cook your a tool" without checking your grammar AND to the subject at hand and you expect anyone to take your post seriously? You are the tool if you think that Apple should comply. The implications of Apple providing the FBI or anyone/org with a backdoor unlock (hack) to it's own OS by exploiting it's own code reaches far beyond a single cell phone. There are billions of iOS devices running in every part of the world ...

First smart thing they've considered doing in the past 8 years.

in the Article: T-Mobile Offers $200 to Sprint Customers forum

Was finally able to get to a live Tmob tech and he clarified that the plan is not $45/mo... it's actually $95/mo... the $45 is simply for the data and doesn't include any calling plans which MUST be added at $50/mo. For me that's not worth it....

in the Article: T-Mobile Offers $200 to Sprint Customers forum

um... what? The article says available starting Nov 26 and my question was How do I port in my line to get their unlimited plan for $45? I don't see that option anywhere on their webpage and their chat rep couldn't find it nor had "she" even heard of it.

Where is this deal on their website?

in the Article: T-Mobile Offers $200 to Sprint Customers forum

I looked on their site and was unable to find it... I even chatting with one of their agents who could not find the deal in question.... I'm on a Sprint SERO plan and it's finally time to cut loose from them. This is the perfect opportunity but can't figure out how to take advantage of it.

in the Article: LG Nixes Watch Urbane 2nd Edition At Last Minute forum

I bought this watch last Thursday at AT&T and returned it Friday morning as soon as they opened. To say it is beyond useless is an understatement. No settings to configure to your personal taste apps don't work can't install anything and the one thing it should be good at, making calls, was an exercise in futility. The only redeeming quality is that it is quite a nice looking device and felt good while wearing it. And despite initial ...

Seriously... 10gb of data, unlimited texting, calling through North America AND unlimited texting through 38 other countries? All on AT&Ts network? I may be dropping my Sprint SERO plan

That's 10gb total for all 4 lines with Sprint... Tmobile is 10gb for EACH line. Big difference.

Don't see anything about when this program starts but I tried to enroll in it today from my iPhone and no matter which carrier I chose or which phone I chose it gave me "this device is not available right now. Select a different device or check back later"
