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!!!!!
Re: Galaxy S6
Retina scanner, counterfeit bill reader, breathalyzer, radar dectector, scratch and sniff screen apps, holographic interactive on-screen porn apps........and don't forget...even larger screen!!!!!
AT&T MVNO's have been doing this already! Why bother with a post-paid carrier for this???? :roll:
Phenomenal plans. Horrendous customer service and on T-Mobiles native network, travel off a highway, or a metropolitan area and poof! No service and/or even 3G coverage. Hello EDGE!
Re: NJ is REALLY appealing these days
New Jersey residents parallel Long Island and Brooklyn with its big-mouth outspoken criticisms of anyone and everyone that is not like them. Like a Napoleon complex for a state its size, they do not mind their business. Their accents are like scratching a chalk blackboard. Boston accents come in a close second place. Now more fuel to give their Keystone cops reasons to pull people over for having nothing better to do.
Re: Do some research before you make lame jokes
I know he did. Does not mean though by any means he will curb his appetite. Just that he will feel fuller faster. Lame is what he did by brown-nosing Obama and being a republican.
Re: Of course, why not enforce the ban on TALKING while driving first...
Why not NJ push to make Governor Christie lose some weight first?
Re: Page Plus
Another talking point definitely. Fragile is correct. It is still in its infancy so to speak. Just like a person, it advances in baby steps. Expecting a child to walk without first crawling, the child(technology) is going to trip alot. Despite these metaphors, we are all blessed for as far as tech has advanced in the past 30 years. :wink:
Re: Verizon too?
It did affect VZW to some extent as well from what I was told. VZW is the foundation for Page Plus service.
The facebook page is inundated with negative comments berating the company. Technology is not flawless by any means and far from perfect. One pays for a service and expects a service. Understandable. On those rare occasions when problems occur, some patience is needed. Alternative means can be found be the effort made to communicate until the issue is resolved. Humans are quite adaptable. That is how we got as far as we did in the past 30 years with technology. ...
I guess beggars can't be choosers on pre-paid but LTE would have been nice. Well they put a W8 Nokia Lumia on pre-paid which is a decent step in the right direction anyway.
ElSad, trying to be a $marta$$ does not show how far you can get with sarcasm like many other posters on this site. People point the finger ever so quick at the gov't when its not convenient for their already spolied brat lives. But for gov't programs, everyone loves those even quicker.
Re: Oh what fun!
Remember, legacy, grand-fathered plans do not last forever.
Re: Oh what fun!
Correct. Yes, VZW has an extensive network platform but this prepaid price-point does not offer too much at all. No 3G support? No smart-phones? Might as well go with Page Plus. At least the 3G and smartphones will be supported.
