AT&T and VZ will eventually get upset because they make their business on overages.

Yep! Will let you save money on it. However, I think ads will still eat your data. Better skip it all. :)

The S7 and S7 are both great. However, it looks as though Samsung has gone full back in applying specs from the S5. Thanks for the awesome review!

Amen to that. I am a samsung user myself(tried using the S5 and Note 4), but 6 inches? really? Even with the Note 4, I was struggling to keep it inside my pocket. Rather stick with what I have now.

in the Article: Consumer Advocates Lodge Complaint Against T-Mobile forum

>>>The groups say T-Mobile links month-to-month service with two-year equipment financing plans, which are, in effect, contracts that result in financial penalties if broken. -Any major carrier have device plans. As for T-Mobile, the customer is actually given an option to get the phone he/she likes through installments without paying any large amount upfront. If he/she cancels his/her account, she will only have to pay the total remaining installments on the phone's price. Nothing much, nothing more. That is ...

I would suggest you check out the price of the phone first and do the math. There are no ETF included on the phone's price.

in the Article: Consumer Advocates Lodge Complaint Against T-Mobile forum

Dude what you are paying only is the phone itself when you cancel the account. Actually, with the EIP(Equipment Installment Plan), it gives you the option to pay the phone in installments, say the phone price is $500 / 24 months = $20.83 monthly installments. If you pay, say only 2 months out of it, so $20.83 x 2 months= $41.67. Deduct it from $500 and the remaining is what you will pay for cancellation. On the other hand, the ...

T-Mobile is aware about the EIP(Equipment Installment Plan), that is why customers have the option to lease the phone under JUMP! on Demand for 18 Months as comes with it is the Lifetime Coverage Guararntee offer. Where if the customer cancels the account after 30 days for service, he/she will have the option to keep the phone and still pay it on regular installments. https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-23903

Actually, I agree. Would be the best move they did since they constant downfall. It's like they have a acquisition curse. Was offered to buy Google twice, was also offered to purchase facebook. If this happens, this would be one of the biggest internet/site deaths.

Oh, yeah, it was started Nov 26. Sorry about that. I talked to them just now and they said you will need to open a postpaid account with a $50 Simple Choice rate plan. What you need to do is, you need to get a SIM card from them, open a postpaid account, then process the port in. Try calling them at 18009378997 or 18008662453. Tried ordering a SIM card from them through chat but was answered to ...

The deal was in effect starting November 29 and for a limited time only. If you port in to T-Mobile and open a postpaid account with a qualified rate plan, you will receive a $200 worth of bill credits that will be applied 3 billing cycles after you activated your account. You may not see it on their website but it is guaranteed that will be applied.

As stated clearly, for roaming. If it's Mexico, does it mean, meant for illegal immigrants? How about Americans going to Mexico? Or are you just going to give stereotypical single minded opinions?

This just shows how Verizon is milking their customers. $10 for 24 hours of roaming. Would rather suggest using Skype or Viber over WiFi. Cost $0. Goodluck with that.

in the Article: T-Mobile Increasing Unlimited Data Plan Price by $15 forum

Think about the comparison of pricing. from 3GB worth $10, it became 6GB for just $15. Also, their 5GB is worth $20 and now it is 10GB worth just $30. The data increase only comes with just a little price hike, but the point is the new ones have more data. These features also include the Unlimited Free Vidoe Streaming.

OH YEAH!

That's true. Some users may get irritated by it but this is just to ensure fairness on other users that are not on unlimited high speed data bucket.

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

Dude, with a contract, you get to have termination fees on top if you will be cancelling within it's period. With the device installment plan, if you cancel your account, you will need to p[ay off the total remaining installments unpaid. Do the math. Check the full retail price of the phone. If you can check the result, there are notermination fee on it, just the price of the phone itself.

The S6 and S6 edge is quite indeed disappointing because of it's non-expandable memory and non-removable battery. But it also has it's good side. However, since the LG G4 is still sticking to what's best, I might be able to give my approval for it.

in the Samsung Galaxy S6 (GSM) forum

The Android 5.0 Lollipop update is not yet available on my country for Samsung Galaxy S5. If I use Odin in updating my phone using other country's baseband version, is my phone then considered rooted and have violated my carrier's policy? :paranoid: :paranoid: :paranoid:
