The Victor said: cant do that with at&t, if you have verizon you can, not sure about the other 2 no, you can. I've already upgraded twice since their NEXT program has been out.

in the Article: AT&T Lets Customers Stretch Out Phone Payments Further forum

if you're on the next 24, and lets say your phone costs 5 bucks a month, and you want to upgrade after a year, you just pay the difference of what month your on, and then 24th month. (in this example it's 12, so 12 months times 5 bucks = $60)

Jellz said: When they owned Motorola, wouldn't that mean Google was then in direct competition with all the manufacturers making Android phones? Under that same logic, it seems so. Samsung's first name must be Joseph because they're Stalin paying microsoft the money they owe them.

dougm said: About a month or two ago, AT&T changed their coverage viewer on their website. You used to be able to select Voice coverage and get a street-level depiction of their coverage, with a scale of poor, fair, good, and excellent coverage strength. Now, their maps are a binary depiction of coverage, either there's coverage or no coverage. In many areas, 4G LTE is stated on the maps, but I have experienced 2G coverage. AT&T is just as bad as ...

They come out with some great ideas and then the other three lemmings of carriers follow suit months later. One day, perhaps the others will get a lightbulb going off in their head.

Slammer said: ---"You only think you like AT&T because you're not wise like John."--- I'm not sure of anywhere in my post that B-sides should hate AT&T. Please review my thread and point out where I claim that B-sides needs to hate AT&T personally. I believe I said having AT&T and DirecTV as seperate entities was not a bad thing. Having them merge is not in the best interest of the consumers. B-sides likes both and the reason is that both ...

I am stoked for this deal as I believe AT&T is going to take their service to the next level with offering and packages! Yeah I'm pretty excited. DirecTV is pretty awesome, but Uverse with the channel line up and pricing is a better deal. If they can take what wins with Uverse and put it to DirecTV then I'm sure ...

in the Article: AT&T May Buy DirecTV for $50 Billion forum

smcgarvey6 said: I for one would rather see directv stay a separate entity from any company. The only reason at&t wants to buy them is because they are losing home phone, broadband and pay tv customers. This just gives them another way to raise prices. I hope the FCC and the DOJ steps in and blocks them. except as a trend, prices have fallen.

in the Article: AT&T May Buy DirecTV for $50 Billion forum

Slammer said: Yes. Because shifting the folcrum point to a more even balance is better for healthier choice and pricing. The problem is, even having strong parent companies, Tmobile and Sprint still have limited funded parents as compared to Verizon and AT&T. However, it is my hope that acquistions or merges are kept to minimalistic numbers and that AT&T and Verizon are kept at bay to use innovation rather than just purchase entities that others built. John B. Ahhh yes...So It's okay for ...

tjobrien21 said: It may not be such a good thing. I have had AT&T wireless and landline in the past, and some of my customers are stuck with their data service for their offices. In all cases, the customer service has been horrible, so if DirectTV ever provided good customer service, that'll be a fond memory. Customer service doesn't matter...

They offer good products, and I'm okay with them preloading it on android, just as apple preloads their stuff on the iPhone. What I feel is antitrust behavior from google is them blocking youtube access from Microsoft.

hyperbole. 1. Yes 2. If content providers pay for access, then the consumer gets access to it without using any of their data. 3. This is just purely made up.

I'm not sure about their new commerical but they got around that with the old one it had a tiny disclaimer at the bottom that said "Competitors maps from 01/13" While Verizon's maps were their updated ones. And this was during the holiday season that I saw that.

That's not a shocker though. T-mobile has always and will probably always be less than AT&T. They charge less per month not because they're some unsung hero for the consumer...but because they can't. If AT&T and T-mobile cost the same per month, then nobody would be with T-mobile because their coverage isn't as good. (I'm not saying it's garbage coverage btw, they are doing a good job of increasing their nationwide footprint...but they're still not as big ...
