How I miss your drunken rants.

Note 3

The Note 3 costs the same with the promo on T-Mobile's site right now. That's pretty steep, even for a flagship phone!

Sprint has MORE than enough spectrum to build out and compete on their own. ANY carrier adding 1+ million subs quarterly will get the latest and greatest hardware. Needing T-Mobile to compete is complete malarchy. Sprint needs to build their network out, raise their customer satisfaction scores, and lower their prices. May the best carrier win.

Agreed. Having only 3 carriers will lead to a single rate with 3 carriers offering it. It will be HORRIBLE for consumers. I just want you to compare plans before T-Mobile started to shake things up last year. Think that only worse!

Most importantly Jay, it includes 5GB of mobile hotspot in addition to the unlimited data on the handset.

I get about 15 down and 5 up regularly. I've peaked in the 30's near home. Never seen 50.

And that's the truth. I love the T-Mobile haters on this board. Consumer friendly doesn't work for them and I get it. The mall kiosk gets pretty lonely when everyone is jumping ship.

Turds and Trolls Out Today

For the VAST majority of customers this works out better. The $20 add-on now gives you up to 5GB of high speed and you can use your data how you want with no overages. Don't need 5GB? 3GB is $10 and 1GB is at no additional charge! The power users can still get their unlimited for $30 and guess what? It includes 5GB for tethering. Does Sprint allow this officially? Nope! This guy just took ...

You either forgot or weren't around for the merger. Nextel interfered with public safety transmissions. They didn't have the spectrum to fix it even with the government's swap. Someone had to pick them up. It probably shouldn't have been Sprint. Could have been T mobile, but they didn't have the same resources.

You have no idea what you're talking about. Until Sprint as you go, you couldn't go into a Sprint store and get any plan except a 200 minute plan for $29.99. In fact you can go pull all of the Sprint, Verizon, and yes...even T-Mobile collateral that shows rate plans from anytime in 2011, 2012, and the first part of 2013. Go to the back, it's OK, I can wait. Now on the back in the fine ...

Quite simple. Buy your phone outright or bring in your own and you have no agreement to keep service with them. You are billed after you use the service just as you always have been. Compare that to prepaid where you have to pay in advance and be shutoff if you ever are forgetful. If you enter into an equipment installment plan, pay off your equipment and LEAVE. Better yet, do the responsible thing and ...

You sure give a tech blogger a lot of credit...yeah I said it. If you spend a lot of time there I'm sure you know that Brad Reed has reported on T-Mobile's killing of the wireless contract. A blog like BGR isn't journalism, it's click bait for advertising clicks. If you believe what you read there, Apple is both dominating the mobile market and losing share and the same can be said about Samsung.

"... VZW and ATT agree with your above logic and may perceive TMO's strategy as more liquidity." If that were the case, AT&T and to a lesser extent Verizon wouldn't be responding. The fact that they are should tell you everything you need to know. As far as the sub-primes go, T-Mobile still has a deposit for the credit challenged. I don't see them taking the prepaid, or credit challenged customers. Frankly prepaid has been competitive rate-wise for ...

You are correct. What's incorrect are the people in their little cell phone kiosks trying to explain that an equipment installment plan is the same as a service contract. I have 4 lines of service and 0 EIPS. I can leave at will. Next he'll tell me that if I buy my phone on a credit card it's the same as a service contract because I have to pay back American Express.

T-Mo has added more subscribers than AT&T in Q2, Q3 and Q4. Q3 was downright embarrassing for AT&T. Now, let's throw in T-Mobile buying out contracts. How do you think Q1 will look? Will Verizon finally start to slow the adds in addition to AT&T? We shall see.

John we frequently agree on this forum but in this case, there's no way. T-Mobile is grabbing customers at a record pace. Most of them are not from Sprint. They are forcing AT&T and Sprint to act and eventually Verizon will as well in order to retain customers. There is enough spectrum out there to support 4 carriers if allocated properly. Dish is sitting on a ton of it. If T-Mobile continues to add 1 million per quarter we ...

Just got back from Denver. Hate the weather this time of year, but it's a nice area. I had no issues in and around Denver with T-Mobile. LTE service is over the top throughout the city. Suburbs are a different story. Frequently my phone would slip in and around Lakewood. Don't know much about the Southern burbs since I didn't get out that way. You should know if you've made the drive on I-70 that mountain ...

Here we go talking theory. I had a Sprint air card for years before they implemented caps. I regularly used 80+ GB without issues. As for T-Mobile, I have used 50-60 GB mostly in Netflix without any issue. As for LTE speed and coverage, they are the fastest and best in the area.

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

You've bought the spectrum lie hook, line, and sinker. Certainly there isn't an unlimited amount of spectrum, but there's plenty to allocate to advanced wireless data even at the big 2. The problems you speak of are a result of a shaky roll-out, higher than anticipated adoption of technology, and not properly allocating available spectrum. There are a couple of problems with the spectrum argument. The first is simple, the VAST majority of people won't use substantially ...

The only people who can and should be complaining are the people like myself who have someone on their plan who could blow through data caps no matter how large. Fortunately T-Mobile lets me put unlimited data on that line and I keep a reasonable 2.5GB on my other lines. The good news here is we're taking steps toward bigger and bigger buckets for less money which could lead to the "U" word that both AT&T and Verizon hate.

Re: Phone Price Structure

in the T-Mobile forum

I love all the "LOYAL" customer arguments. So do you call AT&T about a landline and ask for a new cordless phone for free because you've been a loyal customer for 40 years. Do you ask McDonald's for a discount on the dollar menu because you've been eating there for years? Loyalty for the sake of loyalty is over. It's good for the customer and in the end it will be good to companies like T-Mobile.

All carriers are local. If you're in a good T-Mobile area like I am it seems silly to flush your money down the toilet every month. T-Mobile is the best carrier for me though your results may vary.

Let me get this straight. You're going to bribe me to pay more for less. I don't think so. This might work for a family that uses very little data or an individual line the same. 4 Lines sharing 2GB (laughable I know) would be $155 per month at AT&T. 4 lines with 2.5GB (and no overage) EACH would be $140 at T-Mobile. Make that cap 500MB to keep everything equal and the price is ...

"AT&T's call quality and data network isn't up to par with T-Mobile's." I love T-Mobile and am not a fan of AT&T, but are you high? My experience with AT&T was far superior to T-Mobile especially while traveling and I don't think I'm in the minority. I maintain my T-Mobile service because in most major cities it's acceptable and the cost savings is worth it.

Every carrier has their problem areas and it sounds like you found one of T-Mobile's. There's no way it's as bad as you make it out as clearly you're trying to get out of a contract that YOU agreed to. 8O Your best bet is to keep a log of where and when you can't make calls and want to. Call customer service and politely ask to get out of the contract due to these issues. ...

AT&T has a lot more network that isn't LTE to cover. That's why they keep making these announcements. Verizon 303 million pops AT&T 250 million pops For Fun: T-Mobile 225 million pops Sprint 200 million pops EST by year end 2013.

HIGHLY unlikely. Try rebooting the phone. I regularly get 30 down and 5 or 6 up. Peak is much faster. If that doesn't work, get on the phone with customer service.

This is awesome. If they can keep the momentum into the typically good 4th quarter T-Mobile becomes a real contender in wireless. Give the people what they want and apparently they will come to you.
