Re: Why not end subsidies?
My only problem with this is that as it is people hate spending any kind of money on a phone. They want inexpensive.....except for those that actually know what they're buying. If we go to no subsidies and people are spending $400 to $600 for a phone, the manufacturer better make sure that phone won't be obsolete after a few months and it better be a quality product. Otherwise there'll be hell to pay
Re: "could prevent Apple from importing the infringing devices into the U.S."
I agree with you "HatesBlackberrys". It'll never happen. Apple is unfortunately too important to the ecosystem of cellular right now. But, I do think Apple should have a hefty fine to pay. On the other hand Aplle is constantly trying the same thing against companies like Samsung and HTC. Stopping Samsung from importing their phones to the US would be just as bad. Seems like Apple is getting a taste of their own medecine ...
Re: Upgrade towers
There are no 2G devices on sale for at&t. They havent sold any 2G devices for a while now.
Re: THANK YOU!!!
What did we do before we had DVR and Netflix. We watched tv when we could. If we missed a show then, oh well, thats too bad. We went to movies or rented movies. Now we're watching hours and hours of tv and movies on a 4 inch screen and straining our eyes. I know technology is amazing and I love that we CAN do all of this stuff, but there's got to be ...
Re: I would feel better if
Eskeebel, talking to Tether is like talking to a child. He/she says the same thing over and over again. Its ok to be a verizon fanboy, but its not ok to be an at&t fanboy. Where were all the verizon fanboys when their network went down last month...or the month before that? They were probably going through the withdrawl shakes.
Re: UNLIMITED IS UNLIMITED
but, its also like spending all day eating at an all you can eat buffet and just paying one time. Im sure theres an unwritten rule about how long you can sit there eating.
Im not a networking expert as well but I do know that at&t has put a tremendous amount of money into expanding its network. Im not saying what theyre doing is right, but its much better than the vague 5% policy they started with. I also have to say that just because at one point you signed up for something called unlimited data that doesnt mean that for the rest of your life you can abuse amount ...
so they should wait until they have nothing left and have their backs against the wall before they do something. Then the response would be "why didnt they do something earlier on when they knew this could be a problem later on".
Re: grass is glowing green here at Verizon I assure you!
10 GB!! what the F do you do on your phone that you use 10 GB a month. You must really have a sad life. To a person that has a life 10 GB sounds like a lot. Wait, thats not fair...you probably watch a lot of movies or listen to a lot of music on your phone. I on the other hand like to be social and do things with my friends. So when ...
Re: AT&T has the best phones & LTE network? Huh? You on crack?
again...you are a misinformed idiot.
Re: at 1GB, some consider YOU a data hog
nobody is leaving because of this. People arent that stupid to leave at the drop of a hat everytime something bothers them about a companies policy. The grass is not greener on the other side. I assure you.
Re: Fantastic! Fight these clowns who refuse to invest in their network
You are so uninformed that its scary. You're like the FOX News of phones. More than half of at&t's covergae map is EDGE? Are you high? What are you smoking? http://money.cnn.com/2012/01/09/technolog y/att_network_gets_better/index.htm at&t spent $20 billion on network enhancements in 2011 bringing a 25% improvement in dropped calls. Verizon charges their customers more than at&t for their services as well, is running on an archeic CDMA netwrk, has very little international footprint and still lacks the simultaneous voice/data.
Re: Fantastic! Fight these clowns who refuse to invest in their network
Amen....if you're so upset over throttling at 2GB then just switch to the 3GB plan. Its unlimited at slow speeds vs limited at fast speeds you have a choice to make. There is an option. They're not just saying sorry, we're going to throttle your speed and you just have to deal with it. They're giving you an option to switch. At&t has some of the best smartphones and the best 4G (HSPA+/LTE) network at ...
Re: Giving even more reason to...
do you really think that people are going to be jumping ship because of an $18 increase that you see once every year to 2 years. The grass is not greener on the other side.
Re: Upgrade Fee
The fee is not for the agent that is performing the upgrade, its for at&t themselves. If it were for the store, then it would be charged to you at the time of your upgrade.
Re: WHAT Costs Will Be Increased?
exactly....that No Commitment price is not so high as a punishment. Its the actual cost of the phone.
Sprint is like the guy that goes to the bar with a bunch of friends. Everybody including sprint orders a drink. Then when they all decide to see a menu for some food, Sprint decides they dont want any food, but proceeds to graze off of everyone elses plates. Get your own food, Sprint.
Re: We Won't Throttle, We'll Just Terminate
I dont think its even as clear as you make it sound. Its extremely vague.
Re: This is a huge step in the right direction.
yeah, hating America is a bit extreme. Anybody that says they've never made or recieved a call or sent or recieved a text while driving is lying. Im not saying its ok to do it, all im saying is that EVERYONE has done it on occasion. Including the police officers that are supposed to enforce this.
Sprint is being such a little bitch
ok, fine then
They should just call it BBQ.
Re: funny how......
Most iphone fanatics dont usually complain about their iphone. Even when theres a problem they just kinda shrug it off as "oh well, at least I still have an iphone". The second someone on an android phone is having one problem, all his friends are saying, "you should've got an iphone, bro". It is a double standard.
Re: â€¦ and buying them a $30.00 caseâ€¦.
dont remember where I read this but someone was told by the "geniuses" at Apple that they shouldnt leave their phone on at night. At least once a week they should turn off the phone at night. What kind of answer is that?
Iphones could spontaneously combust and Apple would just give everybody a free fire extinguisher and all will be ok....its amazing how powerful The Apple Kool-aid is
Re: What I don't get is...
Sprints doing a good enough job driving themselves out of business
Bridge for sale
Anybody who thinks these companys have any interest in the well being of the American consumer should take a look at a bridge that I have for sale....get real people.
Re: Why am I NOT surprised that....
not to mention that the outage just meant you couldnt get your email on the go. That doesnt mean that you cant still read your email or reply to it the old fashioned way...by desktop. Sure, its not as efficient but its not like its the end of the world. People need to relax a little. If I lose power I dont cry that Im gonna starve to death because my refrigerator and microwave doesnt ...
Re: Up your's AT&T!!
Arrogance, money and power do get you what you want...just ask Steve Jobs.
Re: why is shoptalk always so dead?
I think the reason Shoptalk is always so empty is because there are sales people who think they are too awesome for words. If you vent about a customer situation, they are always there to tell you how they would have dealt with the situation differently and what you should've done. Just let me vent, dont tell me what I did wrong.
Re: bottom line
I agree with everything you said up until the very end. If they dont make the improvements promised how are they supposed to pay a fine every quarter without a raise in customers rates and still manage to make those improvements. I just dont think it would be possible.
you cant opt out because the data is still unlimited....its just slower.
Re: ***NEWSFLASH*** AT&T Hates their customers!
45 GB of data?!?! perhaps its time to go out and meet some real people and have a real social life.
Re: what a bunch of idiots lawyers!
I dont know why people assume that at&t will begin raising prices if the sale goes through. They still have to compete against Verizon and Sprint. They cant just raise theyre prices without expecting a backlash. Verizon charges $30 for 2GB of data per month which is more than anybody else. Did they just buy a company or merge with anyone else? No. If a company wants to raise prices they will, but not ...
Apple is nothing more than a bunch of bullys on the playground. Just because someone else is making a phone that is a touchscreen slab style phone does not mean they are copying you. Look past the outside of the phone and you'll see that they are very different.
lol...you just said exactly what I was going to say word for word. Adolf Im sure was a common name as well.
I agree....the screen resolution on a 2.8 inch screen is awesome. 5 MP camera is awesome....apple also has 5mp camera on it. Higher resolution, more RAM and memory plus the 1.2 GHz processor definitely sounds like improvements. Look at blackberry from 4 years ago and look at Blackberry now and tell me theres no innovation.
Re: quit your cryin
so unless I have absolute knowledge of every aspect of this merger I should just remain quiet. First of all I just said im sick of Sprint bitchin about this transaction of T-mobile. If Sprint was able to pull it off instead of at&t im sure they would feel its perfectly ok. So if I dont use big boy words like you im just being unintelligent. I thought this was a public forum where I ...
Re: quit your cryin
Shut up....go F*** yourself
quit your cryin
Im so tired of hearing Sprint cry about this sale. Calling it a duopoly before it even happens is like they're giving up the fight before the fight has even started
Sprint couldnt buy T-Mobile, how would they possibly be able to buy at&t? If it was Sprint making the deal to buy T-Mobile would people be making as much of a fuss over it as they are with the current at&t-mobile deal?
