Those pockets of 2G are fewer and farther between. Soon Mark will have to complain about something else.

in the Article: Apple, AT&T Seek to Block RadioShack's Sale of Customer Data forum

I don't do business with 3rd parties. Who doesn't have an AT&T store nearby and found it more convenient to use RadioHack? NOBODY. The problem is cheap people. They are the same reason that Wal-Mart is the number 1 retailer in the world. UGH!

Why Not?

in the Article: Verizon to Buy AOL for $4.4 billion forum

Why not buy Myspace, pets.com, and geocities while they're at it? Is this what happens when a corporation has too much money?

4th Amendment

in the Article: Court: No Warrant Needed For Police to Snag Cell Location Data forum

The 4th Amendment has been dead in this country for years. Unfortunately we keep electing fools who install fools into the court. Fortunately the 1st Amendment is OK for now.

Re: Why not prepaid?
May 1, 2015, 2:44 PM
in the Article: Verizon Prepaid Offering 1GB Data Bonus for Auto-Pay forum

You answered your own question. Verizon especially makes it unappealing by having the worst phone selection. Also, if you're one of those that likes to float the bill by a day or 2 you always lose on prepaid. Autopay could overdraw you and relying on yourself to pay it could cause shutoffs. I use "you" as anyone, not making any assumptions. Verizon is overpriced and I've found a lot of their subscribers to be proud of ...

The Galaxy Light is a great entry level handset, especially when compared to this.

Horrible!

This phone should be $49.

Crazy Specs

For this price point? These are crazy specs. Too bad it's an Alcatel.

in the Article: T-Mobile Updates Coverage Map with Customer Data forum

It's very possible, even likely that your T-Mobile friends are on old handsets and/or old software. On my most recent trip north my Galaxy S5 read LTE the vast majority of the way while my wife's Note 2 was reading Edge and even GPRS in some spots. Downloaded the newest software and suddenly the trip back was mostly LTE on her phone. Obviously in the near future we'll need to upgrade our phones to take advantage of ...

in the Article: T-Mobile Updates Coverage Map with Customer Data forum

Unless this is recent it's old news. Most of the old LTE holes have been filled. I 75 from S. Florida to Bay City, MI is nearly all LTE at this point with just a couple of rural spots with Edge.

Could they have made up?

Real Windows
Mar 2, 2015, 7:53 AM
in the Article: Lumia 640 XL Offers More for Phablet Lovers forum

Real Windows (10) on a phablet is a compelling proposition, especially in the business world. If Microsoft doesn't mess this up it could finally be the thing that makes them relevant in mobile.

Re: 20GB for $155 with Verizon or $55 with Cricket (AT&T)?
Feb 4, 2015, 9:29 PM
in the Article: Verizon Juggles Data Plan Options Again forum

Smart people don't use either of the big 2 if they can avoid it. T-Mobile works great for me and I travel. I have to imagine it works for most. If you're that worried, get a Page Plus at $10 per quarter. Supporting Cricket only perpetuates the cycle. Go Tmo or Sprint and support competition.

in the Article: Verizon Raising Activation and Upgrade Fees Feb. 5 forum

AT&T has been $40 for months while Sprint still hangs out at $36. T-Mobile charges $15 for a sim card if necessary up from $10.

Jan 30, 2015, 2:32 PM
in the Article: Verizon Raising Activation and Upgrade Fees Feb. 5 forum

You are right. It's not fair to the sheep and any other farm animal I may use to compare the typical Verizon customer to. Koolaid drinking, gullible, money hating clowns. Is that better or do I run the risk of offending circus performers?

in the Article: AWS-3 Spectrum Auction Over, Bids Total $44.89 Billion forum

This is what happens when you have a finite resource like spectrum and try to run a no rules auction. I like government intervention less than most, but on a government run finite resource auction, they need to have rules to avoid a government sponsored duopoly.

Re: Wow
Jan 29, 2015, 10:23 AM
in the Article: Verizon Raising Activation and Upgrade Fees Feb. 5 forum

Industry standard my rear end! Verizon finds new ways to squeeze their customers every day...and the best part? The sheep gleefully pay or make excuses like industry standard. Everyone who has a viable alternative should drop Verizon to prove a point. Sadly they won't.

A Cheap Copy
Jan 7, 2015, 11:29 AM
in the Article: AT&T Debuts Rollover Data forum

Not even a good copy! Love my T-Mobile service. You want to know how not to bother with rollovers AT&T? How about offer an unlimited plan?

Re: Yawn
Dec 16, 2014, 11:20 AM
in the Article: T-Mobile Intros Rollover Data, Called Data Stash forum

Everyone wants something for nothing. I guess you're included. The Data Stash is for people who BUY additional data so they don't lose it.

in the Article: T-Mobile Brings Back $100 Unlimited Family Plan forum

It's a simple way to drive to revenue. I'm considering swapping my 10gb plan for unlimited. That's $80 more for them, no more getting throttled for us. Brilliant if you ask me.

I was in downtown Detroit for a Lions game and had full, FAST LTE coverage with T-Mobile while sprint limped along with evdo. Tell me this isn't their finished product...

Anti-Trust
Dec 2, 2014, 9:45 AM
in the Article: Sprint to Woo AT&T and Verizon Customers with Halved Rates forum

This stinks of anti-trust. You can have a promotion, device subsidy, or buyout that targets one or two specific carriers, but an entire rate plan? I won't jump to any conclusions yet, but I think once announced I can.

in the Article: T-Mobile Agrees to Show Customers Real Speed Test Data forum

I don't know where specifically you're talking about, but many areas that read EDGE just last summer where I travel now light up LTE. I've had the pain of Sprint. Never again!

Re: Nice

in the Article: AT&T Adds $45 Option to GoPhone Plans forum

It should be universal. It's a pretty reasonable plan for the customer with a single line. I've got the 4 line promo at T Mobile which works out better.

Nice

in the Article: AT&T Adds $45 Option to GoPhone Plans forum

If you have a single line and don't mind prepaid, this beats T-Mobile by $5. Wonder if the competition will respond.

Another Thing to Consider

Who really pays for these lawsuits?

Re: Hope this makes it to court
Oct 28, 2014, 2:57 PM
in the Article: FTC Sues AT&T Over Throttling Practices forum

It's really simple. This was a material change in the TOS. Everyone who wanted out of their contract could have gotten out of their contract. Those who stayed have only themselves to blame. The government doesn't need to get involved in something like this.

in the Article: Sprint Improves Its Least-Expensive Data Plan forum

You must live in the magic land where only Sprint and T-Mobile work. I use T-Mobile now and I've used Sprint, Verizon, and AT&T. I can tell you honestly that there was never anywhere in my vast travels that I had any problems at all with Verizon or AT&T. Sprint and T-Mobile, not so much. That said, I don't travel like I used to and T-Mobile more than meets my needs for now.

LAME
Oct 23, 2014, 9:05 AM
in the Article: Sprint Improves Its Least-Expensive Data Plan forum

Why would they offer the same thing as everyone else? No one is going to share 1GB...that's absurd. Their own branded prepaid is a better deal at $35! I don't see how this is going to right the ship. For the same money I'd rather have Verizon or AT&T.

It Keeps Getting Worse

in the Article: Verizon Changes Terms of Edge Plans forum

I sure wish Verizon customers would put down the Kool-Aid and jump ship. This sure won't win them any new customers.

How much of the price do you feel is derived from the housing?

in the Article: Iliad Bails on Attempt to Acquire T-Mobile forum

Only clowns who have no idea what they're talking about. There was no deal, so there was no reason for them to pay any penalty. Same goes for the Sprint deal that was abandoned.

Re: Verizon??
Oct 1, 2014, 8:10 PM
in the Article: Verizon Bags Plan to Throttle Heaviest Users forum

Very few still have this perk. Even so, Verizon plans are extremely overpriced compared to Sprint and T-Mobile. I wish people who don't need the rural coverage would wake up and drop the big 2.

Re: Not Terrible...

in the Article: AT&T Offering Double Data on Select Mobile Share Value Plans forum

T-Mobile keeps investing in 700 MHz spectrum and have been deploying LTE much faster than Sprint. I use T-Mobile now and it works most places for me. As I said though, going into the sticks is no bueno.

Re: Not Terrible...
Sep 29, 2014, 12:25 PM
in the Article: AT&T Offering Double Data on Select Mobile Share Value Plans forum

For me it's not even budget. AT&T and Verizon both have fairly good coverage by me. Sprint is marginal but my wife always liked it because it worked at her place of employment while no others did. T-Mobile blows everyone else out of the water locally until you get into the sticks.

Not Terrible...

If you have 4 or more lines and everyone uses about the same amount of data.

But for the fact that they're owned by the Death Star, what's wrong with Cricket? Good network, good prices, lack of customer service??

It's the LTE that does it for me. With the card slot I'm not worried about internal storage so much.

Re: $299?

in the Article: Sprint to Sell LG G3 Vigor forum

Maybe it's because I buy last year's flagships. Bought my Note 2 in January for $300 refurbished from T-Mobile. The S4 frequently shows up in the same neighborhood. That said, waiting for the Moto g 2nd gen LTE for my wife's next phone. That should be around $220.
