I get 60mb down/25 up in San Diego where I live. Sprint sucks most places. At is ok here. Verizon is super slow here....

in the Article: T-Mobile Increases Mobile Hotspot Allowance forum

But then you'd be stuck on Sprint's crappy network... I left Sprint last year because the fastest LTE speed I could get was 15mbps. On Tmobile, I get 60mbps. I'm in San Diego, CA. so not in the middle of no-where....

I just checked, $50 for the line and $50 for 6gb of hotspot. So, $100. Tmobile charges $80 for plan and 7gb hotspot. The $10/2gb. So for the same $100, you would get 11gb of hotspot...

How much hotspot data does Sprint include for that? Tmobile includes 7gb...

Any info on which LTE bands it has? T-Mobile support?

This does not beat T-mobile.

in the Article: Cricket Offering Five Lines for $100 forum

It's cheaper, but you get less too... With T-mobile with 4 lines or more (Up to 10) each user gets 2.5GB until 2016. It's only $110 for Tmobile... How much would 2.5GB cost on Cricket? Cricket only gives you 500MB/line. It costs $10/line more for just making it 1.5GB. 5 Lines 1.5gb each on Cricket is $160.... HMMMMMM Which is better?

Why is it wrong for Tmobile to throttle
Aug 8, 2014, 3:26 PM
in the Article: FCC Asking All Carriers to Explain Throttling Policies forum

They are very clear about their throttling practices. Once you run out of the high speed data allotment you purchase, you are throttled for the remainder of the month. The rest of the carriers throttle you even when you have unlimited data.

Prob around $25/month

in the Article: T-Mobile Now Accepting Preorders for LG G3 forum

It will probably be around $25/month $599/24 = 24.95

in the Article: Sprint Intros Free Wi-Fi Calling for Some Smartphones forum

Your #2 and #3 Con: #2 can be easily remedied by paying for higher speed ISP. Remember a router has capabilities to handle 250 devices (computers, printers, phones, tablets) The company I work for has a 15 story building with over 2000 employees in the company. We have wifi all over the place and have never run into problems. 3. I don't think that will be a problem because people already abuse those free hotspots with downloading torrents and ...

And that's probably why they will go to 4th place and tmobile will wipe the floor with them.

Will this work like TMobile's Wifi calling? If I travel to another country and connect to wifi, will I be charged for international roaming for calls and texts?

WhySoBluePandaBear said: Of course Network Vision is their top priority - at the same time, they want to offer devices that will attract consumers. They could have the best network in the world, but if they don't have the phones that people want, it won't make much of a difference. Who cares about Windows Phone 8 though.... MS isn't even in the same league as Android and Apple.... they never have... even in CE days...

I think Print should focus on rolling out LTE before getting any other phones that subscribers won't be happy with because of network speeds.....

I'm an avid BB user (8350i on Nextel)... I love BB. I'm worried though, this is how the whole sidekick death happened... all with an outage.... What's scary is this is worldwide.... You would think that they would have more than one back up system in place... come on RIM!
