I do believe we should have a right to privacy, however, I have yet to see any good arguments for it.

Maybe you should look up the word unlimited. If I have unlimited data but I can't use my unlimited data to download 100Tb in a month. Because its not really unlimited. Unlimited is a lie.

Unlimited: : without any limits or restrictions : not limited in number or amount That would mean I can use as much internet I want. If I wanted to download 100Tb of data in a month then I could. The problem is that there is a cap on the speed and therefor can't be unlimited.

AT&T never had unlimited data. No company has unlimited data.

Technically shouldn't every company that offers unlimited data be sued by the FCC there is not one company that gives truly unlimited data.

yup. You know how long it took me? 5 seconds. Why pay the company more money for stuff that you are already paying for?

Well I have AT&T. I pay $40 a month. Unlimited Data and tethering and get service everywhere I go. I live in the Inland Empire so also not in the middle of no-where. I would never want to be on T-mobile and worry about my coverage and pay double what I'm paying now.

Or you could just get the hotspot from your phone without going through the carrier and save $50 bucks.

You could always root your phone and use your unlimited data as a hotspot instead of the hotspot data.

not really. The FCC wants to make money. If T-Mobile doesn't want the big 2 to get more spectrum then they can pony up the money. They can go to daddy and beg for money.

Sense is a fantastic skin on top of Android and is much less invasive than Samsung. HTC has already updated a lot of the HTC ONE phones. Samsung has only updated the Verizon version in the states. Has LG updated any phones to lollipop?

Except that if the phone stops working for whatever reason support for the OnePlus One is nearly none existant. And the upgrade for the HTC (m7) was within the 90 days and both HTC ONE's have been far superior to the Samsung Galaxy s4 and s5.

in the Article: FTC Nails TracFone for $40M Over False Advertising forum

I don't think you understand what Unlimited means. un·lim·it·ed adjective \-ˈli-mə-təd\ : without any limits or restrictions : not limited in number or amount So that means that any company at all that advertises unlimited internet is doing false advertising. Its impossible to have unlimited internet. If you are throttled to 500 kbits/s then you can only download 2.47 GB a month if you download continuously for the entire month. 2.47 GB is not unlimited. So please get your facts straight.

If T-Mobile or Sprint wanted it they could afford it. They have very large parent companies. Those parents companies don't think they need that Spectrum. Plus over 50% of the population is with Verizon and AT&T so them getting this spectrum it helps the majority of the people in the US. How is more people getting more spectrum a bad thing?

Oh yes because Palm did so great with webOS. It totally saved them from the brink of disa... Oh wait it didn't save anything. It couldn't compete with iOS and Android. And this is coming from some who liked his original Palm Pre. But that one had to be overclocked in order for it to run decently.

I don't see what the big deal is.

I have nothing to hide. I don't care if they FBI goes through my phone. They just might get jealous from my pics though. :wink: And plus its not like they just go through everybody's phone. Only people who are suspected of doing something bad. And the FBI has to get a warrant from an impartial judge.

Are you kidding me? Obama is the greatest thing that has ever happened to this country. Unemployment has dropped since Obama took office, the economy is no longer in a recession that Bush created. All the problems that Obama inherited from Bush and he has come this far? Its astounding. Obama has made peace with other nations and we are no longer hated. If there was a god then it would be Obama.

Tax the rich more? What do rich people do when taxes go up? They hide their money better. Look at Apple. They are an "American" except most of their money goes to other countries. All their manufacturing goes to China. A lot of their parts are bought from Taiwan and South Korea. And what about the money they make from licensing deals? They started a new company in Ireland because the taxes on ...

Yes Wifi an be implemented anywhere but that doesn't mean Wifi calling will work. You could implement Wifi in the middle of the ocean and still not be able to make wifi calls. AT&T and Verzion don't need Wifi calling. And there is many options to use wifi to make calls back home from going overseas.

Proper verification. The same verification that I get when people buy a phone from me? So if I wanted to I could just call up and pretend to be that person and lock their phones. That is an awesome idea.

The problem is they have no money to build towers. DT wants to get rid of them so bad that they aren't putting any money in to T-mo. So the only option for T-mo is to make themselves look good to get a new buyer.
