Stifling innovation? What a load of crap!!!! Perhaps firing back at a company known for bringing out ridiculous lawsuits and saying everyone is infringing upon them when they themselves have infringed upon everyone's ideas and called them their own should be looked upon before calling companies stopping them the innovative blockers!!! could have sworn Motorola has been more innovative than apple over the past few decades!!!!
Yes, Apple and Samsung. Quit being annoying for a change.
Re: What happens to National Retail?
Actually one has to be an idiot to still buy the phone outrght (through a service plan that costs much more over the two years and never goes down). It's a better value to get a much cheaper rate plan instead and still pay less (in most cases even with a outright phone being done in payments and after 20 months (or less if you fnish paying it up early) get a steeper discount on your bill. ...
Re: What happens to National Retail?
lmao! Yes I hope the same, im tired of all the screwing up on the accounts that they cause. Or when people think they had php on the account and they didnt or had one of the wal mart plans that they offer, its such a terrible way to do business it sucks having to send them back over because theres no way for me to fix some of the mistakes to our customer care to resolve, it ...
Re: What's next?
LMAOOOOO!!!!! hahahahaha Awesome! 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)
yes and the prices need to be resonable, do you forget that spectrum is licensed and not owned? Fool, it just proves you're an ATT troll plain and simple. According to the FCC and roaming arrangements they do! and have you heard of VoLTE? Just another way for them to strangle you and force you into data. Duh!
All part of the master plan
Yes, great way to strangle CSpire and all the rural carriers! Stop them from doing inter portable roaming, Qualcomm has to make chips that they can charge the carriers more for and ATT and Verizon get the smaller carriers off their back (for the most part). Sounds like a win win for the big carriers and Qualcomm if you ask me. I must be inclined to agree with C-Spires accusations of ATT.
About time this nonsense ends. I must say Tim Cook is a lot more reasonable than SJ ever was. If this nonsense is settled soon Apple may yet again gain my respect.
Unable to keep your receipt is not T-Mobile's fault, you need to provide proof you actually own it if you bought it at a corporate or authorized retailer or else who's to say that someone won't just steal them then get the subsidy code directly from the carrier? Also to add T-Mobile does give the subsidy to people who purchased their phone on contract 6 months after they bought their phone even after it was given to them ...
Re: FCC=Cosumer Advocacy
John, your responses are very well thought out. I agree with you 100%
Re: Any Company....
Steve jobs was a psychotic joke, he was great at feeling what people wanted but hardly an innovator. I agree with you though, Tim Cook seems to be more amenable and more reasonable than Steve ever was. I was leaning away from their products due to Job's behavior but with the way Cook is handling things it might convince me otherwise now.
Pursuing patent licensing or not ie: destroy the competition by going thermonuclear is financing its own survival by using patents against the competition. Difference here is that Apple had no intention of licensing while complaining in Europe that Moto/Google was being unfair by not allowing fair licensing terms. Fair or not an effort was made to license in Europe while Apple on the other hand tipped the scales and was neither by pursuing elimination of the competition. ...

Trying to be sneaky, bout time the Feds do something right for a change.
Just goes to show....
How down the toilet Clear is going, and fast too.....Sad when a giant like google is willing to get rid of you (at a discounted price) just so they have nothing more to do with you.
Same company that makes that software just wondering? 8) If it is, great way to directly attack google by bringing a like apple messaging app but not sure if they are related.
GettingSleepy said: They'll get sued by Apple no matter what they do. I'm sure Apple has already patented making processors for cellphones. LOL!!!!
Yet Apple wants to drive everyone out of business just for the sake of doing it... Much darker when you're on the losing side for a change when you are going after a company that has been around longer and has a much stronger patent portfolio than you do. This lawsuit nonsense needs to stop from Apple already if they want these injuctions to be let off against them.
bc by buying the aws spectrum they effectively stop tmobile from buying it and rolling out LTE, this was delibertly done to stop competition from T-Mobile when it became clear that the ATT deal would fall apart.
Obviously was going to happen following the debacle that was the disastourous deal when they tried to acquire T-Mobile. I say they got what they deserved and hopefully this gave them a reality check however im pretty doubtful of this. 8) 8) 8) 8)

Yup, you forget the cell phone in general, where as you are obviously going for a company that invented.. iPhone..... (that's pretty much it) (no need for the other models as they all ...
Re: Someone wants some of that quarterly money that Apple made..
Yep, that was gained by the illegal use of technology that was created by motorola in the first, since "REAL" reality shows that they were in the cell phone business long before Apple even had the iPhone in its womb. :twisted:
get to the point said: For it to be a contract it must have consideration, I see what t-mobile gets. But what does AT&T get? T-Mobile and ATT entered into a binding agreement. T-Mobile recieved consideration from ATT and enetered into a binding agreement for ATT to purchase the company for 39 billion because DT wanted out of the US market all together. In return ATT recieved consideration from DT/ 8) T-Mobile and offered the roaming deal ...

Re: Thank you TMO, your waffling got me on a REAL network!
Indeed the saying is true, sometimes you need to be raped to have service. Gurantee you were definitely one of those whiny customers who wanted a free phone or service which is why you went to all the cheap carriers before Verizon. Btw how have those outages been treating you? Gotta love paying for no service than crap service. Good riddance.
Re: I'll take that--
Best Network because they have the oldest one available, they've just been spending on keeping up with maintenance on the old big red machine its always easier to maintain the oldest matured technology than the new, this is merely a growing pain since they finally invested in something more modern than their ancient 3g/1RXTT network, smart if you ask me, they've garnered quite a rep and things like these don't phase them much as you can see by the ...
How so? A Vodafone deal would automatically mean growth in the U.S sector as their obvious objective would be growth to keep up with the likes of Verizon and ATT. Much needed network enhancements and capital would also be brought to the table as Vodafone would more than likely move TMO USA to LTE and later LTE Advanced. It wouldn't be out of the question as regulators would likely want them to sell their stake in VZW ...
Has Anyone Else Wondered this?
Why Verizon is suddenly snatching up 1700/2100 spectrum shortly after it seemed likely the T-Mobile/ATT deal was about to crumble? I know most say that it's so Verizon could build out their LTE network but..... Could it be they are gobbling it all up to "sweeten the pot" to encourage Vodafone to sell their share of the VZW joint venture, buyout T-Mobile USA and give them them the spectrum as an added bonus to get rid of them once ...
Re: Good news but DT still doesn't want T-Mo
Three scenerios mostly likely, 2. Merge with Dish or some other entity intersted in penetrating the U.S. market perhaps Vodaphone will sell their stake in Verizon and buyout Tmobile outright. 2. Completely Spin Off Tmobile onto it's own. 3. IPO to generate quick cash and go forward with network enhancements etc with Tmobile U.S.A. 8)
I blame ATT for this like every other thing!!!! 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)
Or we might know when suddenly att.'s acquisition of tmobile suddenly goes through without a hitch. It's hard not to blame a company that constantly whines because they don't get their way by insulting the agencies they submitted paperwork to in the first place and couldn't backup their statements with factual evidence i.e.: creating jobs yet have cut down 3k jobs over the past 10 years.
Att probably lobbied for this and he was asked to resign by someone in their wallet. :evil:
Re: Hey, everyone who said Apple was in the wrong for saying "GTFO" to Flash...
Totally Homo, just saying.... :paranoid:
Re: You know what WOULD create more jobs?
You're an idiot. You say you want the government out of everything and support a company like ATT in the process. Do you forget that 30years ago we were told by ATT what choices we had in phones and the outrageous prices for long distance etc? etc? By your standard it's better for us to get screwed over than them all in the name of "freedom from the government" Yet simple logic and history shows that these ...
Re: Apple is Suing Farmers
LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL LLLLLLLLLLLLLLL haha I agree they are suing everyone, next thing you know they will be suing people just for thinking of an Apple and not giving them credit.
The Answer is Simple...
The iPhone is coming out to more carriers and they want to entice their customers to stay just like when they offered early upgrades to all their customers when Verizon also got the iPhone.
Takes one to know one. Of course you're an apple fan boy and that's completely ok as I could care less. Of course out of all those companies i'm willing to bet who will start throwing ridiculous lawsuits the quickest when they feel threatened. 8)
Woop Dee Doo
8O Yet another reason to give apple an even bigger stranglehold on technology. Of course now they will claim that they "invented" everything that nortel has achieved with their patents like they always do. Hello to many lawsuits a a higher ego, as if it couldn't get any worse at this point. Stupid government... :evil:
Re: Gee I Wonder
Sure they do. Thats why theyre buying Tmobile..Supposedly...They Want to Refarm the spectrum and use it, so your point is null and void. 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)
Gee I Wonder
Gee...I wonder what company is going to go after all this spectrum....something tells me I dont know why. It may start with an A..... :oops:
