It actually says up to double data. :o :o :o

First off Cricket can't beat my AT&T plan. How much do you think 2000 anytime minutes, unlimited text & data would cost? I get it for $40 a month. Where do you get an extra $45 a month from? The basic plan for Cricket is $40 a month. The starting plan for a single AT&T plan is $65 a month for double the data than that cricket plan. That is saving $20 from your estimate.

No I was refering to Zpike. He hates Apple so much that if they created the cure for Cancer he would say that they either stole it or say its not really a cure for cancer its just a placebo.

So then you have a bunch of wasted screen real estate. And still a phone that is way to big to hold or fit into a pocket.

The question is. Is it really that big of a deal?

Are you serious. Is it that hard to implement? Both of my HTC ONEs new and old don't do that.

No you have it totally wrong. I have my HTC ONE m8. I have zero problems with it. There is no crashing...Actually I take that back before I updated to the newest software the camera would force close in low light if I didn't have the Flash on. I don't know why. Kinda weird. Updated and never saw that problem again. But I do have a custom rom on it so that is probably the problem. Android phones ...

Do any phones support simultaneous voice and LTE data?

No phones support using voice and LTE data at the same time. The data turns into HSPA when you are in a call.

Normally Zpike I don't agree with you because you see nothing positive in Apple in anyway shape or form. But against this guy I totally agree with you. He is just an Apple Fanboy troll.

This is very uncharacteristic for Apple. I mean they didn't announce the original iPhone 6 months before release or anything like that.

Isn't this bad. You are paying $20 extra to lease a phone. Not buy it.

But you can't use the Note 4 Edge with one hand. And you can't fit it in your pocket. It so huge. It looks like you are holding a computer to the side of your face to talk to someone.

in the Article: Verizon Offering $200 Credit Towards iPhone 6 forum

Well maybe if the iPhone offered an SD card you wouldn't have to spend an extra $200 for 48GB extra storage. A 64GB SD card is less than $30. $30 is a lot cheaper than $200.

Hmmm? $350 for a Nexus 5 where if I have a warranty issue I'm pretty much screwed. Or a contract where I can get a Samsung Galaxy S4 for free and if I have a warranty issue I can take it back to the AT&T store and have it taken care of. Interesting.

No I'm sorry but you have no idea what you are talking about. I have been in many places where T-mobile shows they have excellent coverage and they actually had zero or were only on Edge.

You do know that Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile all do the same thing. This is radio frequency. Its pretty much a black magic. Maybe its not the service maybe your electromagnetic field is interrupting service to your cellphone.

I don't think you get. How many different models of the iPod touch are there? How many Nano's? How many Classics? They have the exact same name.

I know they are so lazy. HTC ONE M7 HTC ONE M8 HTC ONE Max HTC ONE E8 Samsung would never do that.

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.

Re: Not really all that different.
Aug 25, 2014, 9:39 AM
in the Article: Sprint Intros $60 Unlimited Plan with Hardware Hitch forum

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.

What company are you with? Sprint, Verizon, and ATT do not offer $30/month financing discount on the plan.

Are financing plans the exact same thing as contracts?

Re: glad for one thing

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 ...

Re: The reason for the end of the subsidy

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.
