In the recent past it was AT&T that I guess had the closest relationship with Apple, now it seems TMO and its CEO Legere are. I know the guy can switch phones as oftem as he wants, but last few times I'm seeing him with the iPhone and promoting it.

PhoneMaster, Very true, but the iPhone user generally is a different animal, not better nor worse but are less into their phones and more use them as an after thought. Went through this with my daughter, she did not want the 6+ and was more then happy with the regular 6. She was in college and her phone broke and had to replace it. Ended up getting a 128gb ip6. Asked her ...

Yeah but they owned 80% of those companies. And true no slammer time for civil suits, but there is for fraud, and I guess in some convulted way they didn't commit a crime. Nevertheless it is wrong and I'm glad they got caught.

THE CEO and memebers of the managment team are lucky there weren't hauled off for fraud in handcuffs. I'm sure no where in no government anywhere would allow shill companies to be set up to take advantage of discounts that are afforded them.

I guess they have to spend $3.3 billion or what ever it is more if they want the spectrum. I just don't understand, set up shill corporations to defraud the goverment out of billions, and nobody goes to jail?

When I started this poast, I had no specific brand or phone OS in mind, nor intended. I just thought a near unheard of company, with a concept idea using already dated technology (which can be OK if priced righr) was a bit over the top. It had nothing to do with Apple or Samsung and what they charge. BTW the LG G4 is about the same price or cheaper bought locked or unlocked with better ...

Point made, but we are talking an Android device, there are quite a few with similar or better spec's for far less. And many from companies that we have heard about.

For some people this would work,if you want to keep up to date and having a constant re-occuring cost associated with it. This would work 1. if you want a carrier branded phone. 2. You to swap out a new device 2-3 times a year. There is something else to think about, you root or unlock a bootloader on a phone, and it shows i.e. knox trip. You are at the mercy of the local store ...

John, As far as the smaller carriers i.e. C-Spire, US Cellular I agree with you. But Sprint and T-Mobile are not small companies. They have the means to bid on the spectrum, wanting out of the US market and giving prefrence to their other markets has nothing to do with it. This is a quagmire, do you offer spectrum at a lower rate to foreign companies and charge more for US based company? Half of ...

in the Article: Verizon: T-Mobile's Legere 'Is Simply Wrong' forum

I can understand smaller regional carriers having a chance, but DT and to a lessor extent Softbank are rather large mulitnational corporations who can afford to bid at the same level as Verizon and AT&T. They just choose not to, basically because they also have to worry about their home markets. Asking the US Government to give a break to a foregin corporation will not go down all to well. If the big two were to ...

Now, take a Xanax or Ritalin and understand one thing, the CEO works for the Chairman. To put it some way that you may understand, he becomes the Chairman of the Boards bitch. High paid one, yes some influense, but if his antics piss off the COB's, he's gone.

in the Article: T-Mobile and Dish Discussing Possible Merger forum

I have never used Dish so can't comment on what you've said. But, they're going to have to come up with $35 billion for DT's share of the company, and I guess somewhere around $10 billion for the rest. Do they have the cash stream to pay that back without rasing rates, or reducing service?

in the Article: T-Mobile Courting Verizon Customers with Two-Week Trial forum

This would work if you're near end of your contract, and thinking of switching, yeah they'll pay termination fee's, and re-activation fee's. But TMO also take's your VZW phones, so if you decide its not for you, then you're on the hook for buying new devices.

Palm self destructed, Ericsson basically partnered with Sony and Sony is still in the marketplace and took over the whole business, Blackberry is in a precarious postion, they may make a comeback but at its previous level.

HTC and I guess you can toss the carriers into this are going to catch a lot of defication because people are going to be without their M9 for 20 minutes to improve their phone? To me I give HTC credit for fixing a problem sooner rather then later. I hope all of you who have bought the M9 see's postive results from it.

Its not so much TMO or any other carrier asking more or less around the amount of money, this is a Samsung thing. These are like iPhone prices, and people bitch about them charging these prices. Seems like price gouging from both of these companies. On a postive side, I did play with a SGS6 edge and non edge today, it is a nice phone at Best Buy, the version seemed unbranded, and per them a pre production ...

In no way I'm a fan of Qualcomm, but I always find it odd that countries and trading blocks like to fine or go after anti-trust practices of everyone but their own companies? And the US is no better they do it too.
