Could you pretty please promise to treat customer right? this is our new net neutrality when this happens. You hit the nail on the head. Its ironic how the people who are going to be the most effected are the supporters of 'free market' internet.

Apple delivered something 'new'(Only to Apple) and expected $1000 for it... This is unacceptable. They are attempting to set a precedent that we will never come back from.

Another copy/ paste from T-Mobile's playbook. I'm sure Sprint will find some way to screw these customers as they do the rest.

T-Mobile advertising is transparent and you get what is promised. The customer plays a huge part in the 'timely' aspect of the etf reimbursement and if they don't get the right documents in, that's on them.

You have to remember, the point is to lower usage and allow you more video streaming so although YouTube is not a part of BingeOn, watching it optimized will allow your data to last 3 times as long. At the end of the day, there is no argument because IT CAN BE DISABLED ANY TIME.

All true. There are no fees other than what you owe on the phone you promised to pay for. It's a loan, not a service agreement. Ignorant fools wasting time going after a company who is changing the industry for the better every day. Oh and when you stop paying your bills, YOU GO TO COLLECTIONS regardless of race.

You should also know that deprioritization only happens to a small amount of people in busy /congested areas. It's unlikely you would ever see it happen even with high usage.

in the Article: Lumia 950 Coming To AT&T forum

I don't understand why a company who is struggling to get market share with their mobile OS would limit the sale of a FLAGSHIP phone to a single carrier even for a short period of time. Initial release is vital to a phone's success. I will be very disappointed if this turns out to be true.

That is right! Even if T-Mobile is allowed to pick up a large portion, they will simply be evening things out by allowing it. ATT and Verizon have a TON of spectrum and Sprint is sitting on a sizable amount as well. Go T-Mobile!

Copy/paste yet again

Another example of Sprint making a lame copy of T-Mobile's play book.

in the Article: FCC Likely to Reject Dish's Auction Discounts forum

They should have thought about this when they set the rules. They can't decide after the fact that it wasn't kosher and make them pay. Besides, whatever keeps the spectrum out of the hands of Verizon and Att is fine by me.

Well said. Is funny how he wants to talk about T-Mobile's lease being deceptive when everything is completely clear including the fact that the $16 phones are a special. He is basically complaining that they are giving customers a deal... People need to realize that the days of phone subsidy are over. You pay for the phone you want bottom line and T-Mobile doesn't hide this like the others. The lease is just one more option ...

You are correct, no doubt about it. BUT, if the smaller 2 carriers are going to compete and be profitable, this change has to take place. Right now T-Mobile is in talks with Dish on a possible merger which would help, but if things are really going to change, all the carriers are going to need to have similar levels of access available to wireless resources. We have all experienced the type of customer abuses that came along with ...

Verizon fails to recognize that they have loads of low band. If they are allowed to buy more, it will be very bad for the market. Just because they are able to participate doesn't mean Verizon and Art don't have the power to outbid everyone. I don't know why he even bothers trying to argue with John Legere.

Amazing how they want 4 major carriers, but don't want to make the changes needed to allow them to properly compete. If they keep letting AT&T and Verizon buy huge chunks of spectrum, things are just going to get worse and worse for consumers.

Its your choice to have your gps active on a device. If this changes, The door opens for all sorts of tracking to take place. I understand saving lives is important, but we already have enough tracking going on without the fcc adding to it.

How dare Att, Verizon and Sprint make this decision for customers. I should be able to use my data how I wish and I can with T-Mobile at a REASONABLE price. If you want unlimited data, come to T-Mobile where you don't have to worry about this garbage.

Samsung did nothing wrong. This is all about an american jury siding with an american company. The case has been lost by Apple in 4 other countries. The day a company can win a case over things like rectangles with rounded corners is the day innovation stops.
