Re: In similar news...Hey!
Could be right. It has come a long way in over 10 years but at least the memories are good. :)
Re: In similar news...Hey!
Those were really great phones!!! I still have a fully functional 3595 and 6010. Though only usable for calls only and the rare text and no data, you can not beat them for durability and reliability. Can not say much on that for modern phones though.
T-Mobile can keep their network period. Anytime out of a downtown or densely populated area, it's hello EDGE, GPRS, or 2G. Even their voice coverage without roaming is on a par with Sprint.
Preload=Need to Root
More "bloatware". Usually when carriers preload stuff. You cannot uninstall unless you root the phone. Motorola does the same thing with Google stuff.
is more or less well covered. Hopefully nTelos spectrum there is outside of major towns and metro areas where T-Mobile severely lacks.
Re: Yeah, And They Have Half The Coverage Too
Yes. You are correct. When money is in a pinch though, I guess one has to sacrifice. MVNO's are a great alternative as well.
Re: Affects Fastest LTE Network Ads
Sure T-Mobiles LTE network is fast. Just depart from a downtown area or the interstates and hello 2G, EDGE and GPRS. Might as well go with Sprint.
Re: More reason......
It's a shame. I guess Starbucks figures the more people in the stores, the more it gives them the appearance that they attract paying customers for their products when the majority are there for the Wi-fi and nothing else.
Re: Nice but.........
Not on all. There are those out there that let you call without the other party having the same app. Just have to do the research. And they are great sounding as well. I use them all the time. I have used my credit card number and nothing, I mean nothing has happened. These companies are legit and have high-security encryption just like T-Mobile for payments. I pay a "flat" price and no fees like T-Mobile with their billing.
for more freeloaders taking up space in Starbucks and not buying Starbuck products.
Anyone can download 1 of the countless ioS or Android apps that offer this same capability for much cheaper price points.
Best alternative. :)
Excellent apps and software. Just remember, with Google absolutely NOTHING is private.
You are all correct yes.... There is a way around that too and it is called a VPN. Some VoIP apps have built in ones and additionally codecs that go through VoIP blocks and as well.
All the carriers including MVNO's entice you with their international plans. VoIP is the best viable option and much cheaper. If you have android or IOs, you can download one of the many many apps where you can use your phone overseas for cents on the dollar and you pre-pay for the minutes you use and can research the country you are travelling to and the rates. I have used this and it works very very well. No need to ...
The E, G, and the Moto X are one of the best series of phones I have worked with from Motorola. CDMA has the Droids.
The $35 price point and the available options are great. Just a native Sprint only network coverage is the killer.
burst out laughing..... :lol: Regardless of being a pre-paid version of T-Mobile, the coverage is still somewhat abysmal and the data will be 2G EDGE away from an interstate or major town or urban area.
Keep your money!
Countless VOiP apps available. No need to use any carrier for that!!!!!
Great phone, not so great carrier. :(
X Marks the Spot
While an excellent high end Motorola device, the Moto G holds its own quite well at a better price point. With an AMOLED display and a slightly better processor, the Moto X is not that much a great difference from the G.
Re: Great experience?
Download a VoIP app there are so so many and they work better than one supplied by any carrier.
Re: Need to work on other things
T-Mobile needs to work on a network that does not display EDGE or 2G once you leave a town. Coverage is abysmal even with the AT&T Roaming agreements.
Try UC Mini and Maxthon. Opera Mini does not render many sites well.
Still no LTE but added Micro SD and bigger screen. OK, but the Micro SD on the 3G 1st gen would have been smarter and leave off the bigger screen. Think people, think!!!!!!!!
The Turnip-heads at Apple iron the battery issues out with the I-Phone 6. Almost everyone I know is walking around with the charger practically connected to the phone constantly.
Re: Looks like
.....they can keep it. T-Mobile is a joke with their LTE and 4G coverage. If I had a dollar every time one of my friends left a major city or town and their phone right away went to 2G or EDGE I could buy T-Mobile.
Your network really is abysmal. Once out of a more densely populated area, can't even get 3G. EDGE all the way. :roll:
Phenomenal back-up phones and great for international travel.
To all those too lazy to use Wi-Fi and be data-hogs on the network, what did you expect a free ride?
No more crapware? Yeeeeeeeah baby!!!!!!
Re: What people don't realize
Yes! Wi-Fi is a great alternative to being a data network hog. People are just either to ignorant or lazy to use it.
Re: Fine Print
That would be nice once carried out to its fruition.
Wait until you see what the 6 looks like! I call it Galaxy-Note envy.
Re: 7 night stand
Well stated. I would not go near T-Mobile. Outside a city or a highway just like Sprint, its EDGE or 2G. I would rather test drive a Chevy Chevette.
Go back to school and learn proper grammer first!!! Depending on a phone to do it for you instead of your birth given brain is pathetic. :roll:
Re: Just being Sprint
Re: This is totall horse manure!
:lol: Got that right!
Re: One-handed mode
Retina scanner, counterfeit bill reader, breathalyzer, radar dectector, scratch and sniff screen apps, holographic interactive on-screen porn apps.The one-handed mode, let your imaginations run wild with that........and don't forget...even larger screen!!!!!
