Why are you happy that Apple is in California. It's not like Apple is actually an American company by any means.

I have to be honest and I have looked everywhere for the difference between PC and Personal Computer. And I have not found any. Are you trying to say that PC is short for Windows PC? But most articles say, " What is the difference between a Mac and other PCs." But that's it. Why do you think that IBM went into the PC Market? Because of the success of the Apple II. And how on earth ...

Wow I thought I was biased. Do you even know what a PC is? PC stands for Personal Computer. Apple helped create that market. And that was in the 80's. Yes IBM overtook and almost wiped them out. But IBM didn't believe that people would want a personal computer until they saw the success of the Apple II and Gates brought them MS-DOS. There was a very small niche market for MP3s. Apple brought MP3 ...

In a legal sense they would go after the customer the exact same way. And wouldn't a signed contract be even more legally binding?

Actually they do put the phone on the lost and stolen list. And most phones are locked to that carrier.

So the exact same thing with a contract. Except that its an ETF fee rather than the rest of the phone. And it hurts your credit if you don't pay it off. And you can't use the phone until its paid off.

Over what period? And don't they still have less than a quarter of the customers that AT&T and Verizon have combined? Oh yeah they are surely making waves. Its sad that Verizon and AT&T are losing customers to them...oh wait they are still adding more customers every quarter. oops.

Why would anybody pay the carrier for tethering when you can get it for free? So guess that means that Sprint is still $20 cheaper. Nice try though.

All of t-mobile's customers don't get unlimited internet. FYI throttling is not unlimited. Its $20 cheaper than the equivalent plan from T-mobile. And tether is extremely easy to get for free or a one time low payment.

in the Article: Sprint Intros $60 Unlimited Plan with Hardware Hitch forum

Subsidies never had anything to do with the rationing of data. It has to do with how many people share a cell tower at a time and how much of a backbone the carrier has to that tower. The more people on a cell tower the less amount of bandwidth everyone has. That is why T-mobile and Sprint can still have unlimited data. Their customers hardly have to share with anybody else. That ...

Isn't it still the same way. You can get a financing plan and then after 6 months just walk away leaving the carrier holding the bag still.

Here we go again John. BTW you sir are awesome even though we disagree. But I still don't care about removable batteries because I don't have my phone more than a year at a time. So I don't get battery issues. Now I'm going to change my tune and agree with you. My wife is very tough on her phones. And she destroyed her Note 2. We haven't gotten her a replacement phone yet and so ...

Steve was a visionary though. If it wasn't for him we might not have PC's or we would be very far behind where we are. He created the mp3 market. And Android is as amazing as it is now because of Apple. And vice versa. iOS 8 wouldn't be what its going to be without the fierce competition of Android. But saying that the whole, "You're holding it wrong." is my favorite joke. When someone ...

Wow your plan way way overpriced. I have 1 line for less than half what you are paying after taxes and I have unlimited data. 2000 min and unlimited text for $40 a month on AT&T.

It depends on the area you live in just like Verizon, AT&T, and T-mobile. In many areas especially with Sprint Spark their data speeds are fast.

How is AT&T neglecting their unlimited customers, and trying to force them on another plan. They can upgrade without losing their unlimited.

Everybody that has Unlimited data through Verizon is well past their contract. That and this doesn't change their contract at all they still get unlimited data. Just like T-mobile has unlimited data for $50 a month.

Cool story bro. But that doesn't have anything to do with Android versus iOS. Android is far superior than iOS in many regards. Battery life is the same on both. You will get about a days worth of charge out of each. Android is just as fast as iOS. But Android offers more than iOS can.

Apple doesn't emulate. They innovate. Having a larger screen iPhone is pure innovation. Who would have ever that of a larger iPhone. People don't even know they want a larger iPhone until they try it out at the Apple store.

Lol. You are such a Samsung Troll. Didn't you know that Apple invented large screen phones. Samsung is just copying them. Apple has a patent on it. It was never done before Apple did it. Just like slide to unlock. No other device in the history of the universe has slide to unlock before the iPhone.

Did you read the article? AT&T doesn't own any of Tracfone. But they do own 8.3% of the parent company of Tracfone. America Movil owns more than just tracfone. They have about 243 million subscribers in the Americas.
