in the Article: AT&T Debuts New GoPhone Plans with More Data forum

Especially the hotspot. Now international visitors who are drawn to AT&T just because it's a big name and works with their GSM phone can get the Wi-Fi hotspot feature. Before, you'd need a billed plan with Mobile Share.

I'm reading this as my phone finishes updating. I gotta say that the Word Flow keyboard is what I'm looking forward to most. It's the thing I miss most from Android.

in the Article: Sprint's Spark Phones Don't Support Simultaneous Voice/Data forum

It's pretty important if you use your phone as a hotspot. Think of it like having to unplug the phone to plug in the computer to dial-up... It's also downright useful if you're on a speaker phone and looking for directions or looking up some information. I do agree though, it is an over-hyped feature. I'd tentatively lay the blame at AT&T's feet, as they trumped up the fact that they had the feature and Verizon/Sprint didn't on the iPhone 4/4S ...

Are you going to be reviewing this and/or the 930?

A little similar, The edges look a little sharper to me on this though, giving it a more 'boxy' look. Also, keep in mind that Nokia was in the colorful polycarbonate game before Apple was. When Apple announced the iPhone 5C, Apple responded with a picture that showed all the Lumias with something like "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery"

:( Was looking forward to this. Oh well, guess I'll just save to buy the international unlocked version. At least then I'll get Qi charging.

Anyone who isn't blind could tell that they're the same thing, and even a blind person could if you handed both phones to him and had him touch the keyboards.

Manufacturers will often--always, from what I've seen--tell you to contact the carrier about unlocking phones. If Samsung is different, I've never heard anything about it.

"Wi-Fi data" sounds better than "no data." Misleading or not.

Well, the signs and whole brouhaha over the shade of pink/purple they were using can go to the landfill, but otherwise it'll be the same. They're just gonna slap the Cricket brand over what they built with AIO and merge the two.

in the Article: AT&T Drops Cost of 10GB Mobile Share Plan forum

Well now that I've seen the documents from AT&T myself (god dangit why am I always the last one?), yeah. Still won't let you keep the $15 line price if you upgrade with a contract after today, though, but you can get most phones on Next for under $25.

As much as I wish that were true: "Pricing for Value plan w/ 10 GB data ($100/mo.) plus per smartphone pricing ($15/mo.) on no annual service contract or on an installment agmt." Period. Stop. End of sentence. Basically, this plan amounts to a $25 savings for being off-contract, as opposed to the $15 savings that is on the lower data tiers. That's it. AT&T has done a good job dressing it up as a huge change, but it really isn't, unless ...

Interesting. So if you upgrade and renew the contract after 2/2/14, would it stay at $15, or jump to $40?

Re: WOW!!!
Feb 1, 2014, 2:41 PM
in the Article: AT&T Drops Cost of 10GB Mobile Share Plan forum

One thing to keep in mind is that it's $15 if the line is off-contract, something I didn't recognize at first. Still, pretty amazing. Just not enough details yet. What's the contract pricing, still $40? Did it drop to $30 again (which would be cool still)?

"The news has hit the wire. Here it is: " ‘Get Out of Jail Free Card’ – T-Mobile will pay off the early termination fees for customers that want to switch from AT&T, Sprint or Verizon. With an eligible phone trade-in, the total value of the offer to switch to T-Mobile could be as high as $650 per line."" That's it. This is going to escalate, and once every carrier is paying off every other carrier's ETF, the termination fee ...

It's not really a compliment. My friend and I play a game we call 'the obvious game.' Anytime anyone says something exceedingly obvious (the sky is blue, that's a horse, etc.), you assign a point value to it. Just a time-killer. Jayshmay has unlimited data is exceedingly obvious 8)

It's either-or. You can trade-in your old device for "UP TO" $250 credit, or get it unlocked and take just the $200 number port-in credit.

This used to be the case, yes. Not so much anymore. I unlocked my Lumia 920 off-contract fine. I contacted a friend in Care to unlock a Lumia 520 I got from Walmart (which I bought as a gift for my girlfriend on T-Mobile) and that worked fine. I got an AT&T Lumia 1020 off-contract from Amazon, and went to unlock, and she said the button to get the code wasn't available. Shortly after, she got an email saying ...

And what people may fail to realize is that the 'we' you speak of isn't AT&T: it's the wireless industry as a whole. Just because this article is about AT&T, the same holds true for Verizon, Sprint, and every other carrier that offers contract subsidies.

The system is rather broken in America. Most of the time, people are shocked when I tell them the REAL price of that shiny iPhone 5S they want. And if I have someone coming in saying they don't want a contract, they just want to buy the phone outright... yeah. Usually when I tell them the REAL price, they change their mind. It's not like this in most other countries. People should realize that if they can't afford the ...
