Re: Contract extension without new phone?

in the T-Mobile forum

If she changed her actual rate plan then yes it renews the contract but the upgrade tenure doesnt reset so if she was eligible for upgrade then she still is and can still get the discounted price unless she switched to a value plan. As far a contesting it months later I can't say

I'll just be glad when its finfished and they've transitioned theyre customers to 3g phones I'm tired of hearing customers complain about their crappy lg gs170 flip phone they bought at walmart.

I've found t-mobile 3g service, but then I live in a metro area, but the refarming they're doing may help with 3g at least

Really, you sound suprised that T-Mobile has the most expensive version, Besides its if you take the Value plan which ends up being cheaper the discounted price doesnt apply

200mb may be a lot for a BB but since this mainly affects new customers, whose buying a BB right now? Plus having a 200mb plan used to disqualify you from your MIR and90% of the people I talk to that have 200mb data also have $15-$30 in overages

in the T-Mobile forum

I wouldnt think so since 1900 is what they were running edge/2g on. now its 3g to improve serive and make room for lte next year. People will only need a new device if they're not using a 3g capable phone ( theyre still out there).

Re: Any disadvantage of value plans
Aug 9, 2012, 1:55 PM
in the T-Mobile forum

Basically w/ value plans the only difference is since your rate plan is lower than the "classic" plan you can't get phone discounts at all so all of your phones will be full retail..that said w/ the value plan there is EIP which is basically interest free financing on phones so basically you make a down payment about what the normal discounted price is like for GS3 16gb of $279.99, then the remaining amount is broken up over ...

my guess would be LG was cheaper than HTC and Huawei is cheaper than LG?

Since the only main difference between the LG's and Huawei's is the New MyTuch will have a .4Ghz faster processor, they're probabaly just going to brush LG under the table

Jayshmay said: T-Mo is skipping HSPA 84. http://www.theverge.com/2012/2/28/2830143/t-m obile-usa-84mbps-lte right but they're keeping hspa+42 for 1900 like Tofuchong said, so they can still use the tech to speed up their network and improve battery life for they're non LTE phones.. which is all of them at this point

you can only get 32 gb in the hard drive but it still will take micro SD cards up to 64 so you can still get 96 gb (minus OS and bloatware) which isn't too shabby

in the Article: T-Mobile Details HSPA+ and LTE Network Upgrade Progress forum

this may be a stupid question, but why would you need to know if your phone is connect to 1900 as opposed to 1700/2100 especially if you're using a Tmo phone? its going to be the same hspa+ speeds you had, the 1900 is more beneficial for Tmo customers who use iPhones since they'll be free from EDGE

plus with the s2 currently $230 at tmo and the s3 coming out @ $199 the price for the s2 will drop because there people who will want to save $$ and they'll get the s2, same reason they roled out ICS to the sensation when they have the Amaze and the One S

I agree, T-mobile seems to be trying toeitehr get new customers or winback old ones with LTE on 2013, 1900mhz 3g for current iPhones and the new marketing campaign thats basically says "Our 4g is faster and or bigger and cheaper than others"
