I never got my bill credits from the last time! Ugh!

By AT&T standards, it's a HUGE change.

in the Article: Sprint Pitching 5 Lines with Unlimited Everything for $90 forum

I've got 3 voice lines and 2 tablet lines. One voice line has unlimited high speed tethering and free international calls. I pay $185 taxes included. This Sprint deal is no deal.

If I had 5 Sprint phones just sitting around I would consider taking something like this. Since I have to buy equipment and pay activation fees, it just doesn't work.

Because AT&T hasn't lost enough customers to care.

SD 400 Series?

Everything except that chipset sounds great for the money.

It would be great as a phone to take on a trip for photo purposes only. No way you'd carry that ugly thing around as your daily driver.

I'd only recommend the Grand X 4 to ZTE loyalists.

Is there such a thing?

Guess they're looking to change their name to Little Red.

Where are all of the T-Mobile haters who were fired up about BingeOn? This is far worse. One service white listed?

Let's take what the other carriers are giving away for free and charge for it. Yeah, that's giving in...

Bad Ripoff

in the Article: 'AT&T Thanks' Program Rolls Out First Offer forum

Much like all AT&T Promos over the past 2 years, this is a bad ripoff of T-Mobile.

$10 per GB

WiFi is readily available in the hotels albeit not fast or reliable. Typical internet charge is $5 per hour. I was able to make fairly reliable calls on hangouts, but WiFi calling was hit and miss (mostly miss).

in the Article: Cricket Debuts Unlimited Plan for $70 forum

I can answer that for you...YES. Also, T-Mobile service is not bad in San Fran. Give it a shot just make sure you've got a new, T-Mobile branded device.

16GB is simply not enough storage unless you're getting an SD capable phone.

$90 Per Month?

in the Article: Cricket Partners with Aaron's to Attract Lease-to-Own Shoppers forum

Why wouldn't you just buy a low end phone for $90? Problem solved!

Not an Upgrade Fee

in the Article: Verizon Confirms Pending $20 Upgrade Fee forum

I've upgraded at T-Mobile many times. They do not charge the $20 fee for the sim card for upgrade phones.

in the Article: Sprint to Relocate Cell Sites In Bid to Cut Costs forum

It is different this time. Sprint presently has a cash position of $4.97 billion and projected to have $1.7 billion at the end of the next fiscal year. Their credit rating at Moody's is B3 which is highly speculative. If they can't raise funds and continue to burn cash at present rates Sprint has 18 months and it's reflected in their sub $3 stock price.

Re: This is the end

in the Article: Sprint to Relocate Cell Sites In Bid to Cut Costs forum

I'm not sure the brand can be saved at this point. Giving service away at 50% off is the only way they are adding subs. If you lose those because of network quality... Look out below.

in the Article: U.S. Cellular Offering 6GB for $40 Per Month forum

Yes, that's right...their site had me all messed up. Not a bad deal if you don't use much data.

Deal?
Jan 8, 2016, 1:31 PM
in the Article: U.S. Cellular Offering 6GB for $40 Per Month forum

$60+20= $80 for a single line or $100 for 2 lines to share. T-Mobile will give you 2 lines with 6GB each for $100 or a single line for $65. Am I missing something?

That's a full $100 higher than Alcatel's Idol series....nope...

T-Mobile has done the LTE overlay of nearly 100% of its network. No more edge or GPRS. Why spout lies?

Re: It's moves like this that make me want to switch to T-Mobile

in the Article: T-Mobile Gifting Customers with Free Unlimited Data forum

Why not go with the 6GB service for $65 as streaming of audio and video are free?

Wow...77 Whole Markets

in the Article: Sprint Retires 'Spark' and Launches 'LTE Plus' forum

I'd have a lot more respect for Sprint if they didn't over promise and under deliver on everything they've done for the past 10 years.

They don't OWN a carrier in Canada.

You have to give them time to update their maps and systems.

Re: $700?

in the Article: BlackBerry Priv Runs Android, Costs $699, Ships November 6 forum

This is not a Galaxy S6. Even so at T-Mobile the Galaxy S 6 is $529.99, G4 is $479.99. The Moto X Pure Edition is $399. I could go on and on, but $499 certainly isn't out of thin air.

$700?
Oct 23, 2015, 11:52 AM
in the Article: BlackBerry Priv Runs Android, Costs $699, Ships November 6 forum

This phone is DOA. That's too bad because a $499 price point could have put Blackberry back on the map.

in the Article: Verizon to Raise Unlimited Data Plan By $20 forum

No, it's not the same thing. Don't finance a phone and leave at will. Finance a phone and you will have to pay it off if you want to leave.

Re: Um...No
Sep 25, 2015, 8:01 AM
in the Article: Verizon Announces Annual iPhone Upgrade Plan of Its Own forum

Compared to $1 or $5 it just seems silly to tout that you can keep making $27.50 payments. Verizon and AT&T shouldn't even bother trying to compete with the other two beating each other to the bottom. It ends up making them look stupid.

Trust me, that 5.7" display was not well done. It was like talking to a very heavy piece of toast.

$727!

$727! What are they doing for an encore? Holy crap!

If You're Sprint
Aug 17, 2015, 8:58 AM
in the Article: Sprint Intros 'iPhone Forever' Promo forum

You can't just wait to see what T-Mobile does and then put out a cheap copy. You need to innovate on your own. Make customers want to come to you. Sad to watch this company flounder.

Not Quite a Waste
Aug 11, 2015, 8:37 AM
in the Article: Review: ZTE Axon Pro forum

While my first impression is this is a wasted effort by ZTE on further reflection, it's not. This could be a part of a larger push to get flagship phones into the hands of consumers for less money. That said, it doesn't seem like that good of an effort.

Re: What a let down...
Jul 15, 2015, 7:47 AM
in the Article: T-Mobile Offering New Family Plan with 10GB Per Line for $120 forum

For the 4 line family that uses a lot of data but not more than 10GB per line this works out to be $120 vs. $160. You can make 2 of the lines 20GB and still save $20. Unfortunately this would be one of only a few scenarios that are better than the unlimited. For the 4 for $100 customers that go over regularly, this one is a no brainer.
