in the Article: Senators Revise Anti-Encryption Bill, Opposition Mounts forum

I am a Libertarian. I find it interesting that a bill sponsored by a Democrat, Diane Feinstein and a Republican, Richard Burr draws backlash against Obama. You do realize that the Senate is controlled by Republicans, yes? If Republicans were the friends of Liberty that Libertarians are then this bill would not have a snowball's chance in hell of becoming law. But they aren't. They are the other side of the hypocrite coin from the Democrats. Spare me your ...

in the Article: Verizon Will Reward Android Pay Users with Free Data forum

These crooks took unlimited data away from their customers claiming that most consumers did not use more than 2GB of data. Suddenly they use 2GB of data as an incentive. Either the additional data will not be needed OR Shammo was correct when he stated that faster data speeds with encourage customers to use more data. I believe the latter to be the case.

No. The Patriot Act was just what they always dreamed of. Sheep marching to the slaughter. When one exchanges freedom for security one ends up a slave.

I don't believe this 'angry' nonsense was necessary. All they need are 'Like'' and 'Dislike'. It most assuredly is overdue for something besides having to either co-sign or sit in silence.

Verizon ridiculed T-mobile and Sprint for offering Wi-Fi calling. Something about how they didn't need to offer it because their network is so expansive.

Hypocrisy nevertheless. Sprint can no longer throw stones at T-Mobile. Truly unlimited data was the only thing Sprint had going for themselves. This is tantamount to waiving the white flag of surrender.

...through an installment plan, rather than the full retail cost." What nonsense! Installment billing or full retail price is the same thing. Either way, Verizon isn't subsidizing the cost of the handset.

They knew the Note 5 was coming out. I did work for Verizon corporate and we could have discussed upcoming phones and certainly knew they were coming. But it would be silly to. You sell what you have today.

Questioning? You should port your numbers to an MVNO in any case. If you want to stick with Verizon's over-hyped network you can go to Page Plus. Unlimited Text and Talk for $39.99 per month. I don't understand why you didn't simply upgrade online. As a former VZW employee, I don't trust any of their employees to touch my account. I do all my transactions online. Everytime I have interacted with one of their store agents I come away ...

in the Article: Sprint to Skip 600MHz Incentive Auction forum

Which is why sprint spark uses 800, 1900 and 2500 for both voice and data. The very idea of adding another frequency is ridiculous. If they waste money on that spectrum that would be resources they should be using to build out their existing network. It sounds like you would enjoy seeing them go bankrupt chasing a pipe dream.

Yes. The Big Red mantra: If you want the best you have to pay more. It is as though they have no idea how arrogant they sound.

Re: Bands?
Jul 24, 2015, 7:45 PM
in the Article: Verizon Adding Carrier Aggregation to 20x20MHz Channels forum

It would have to be 700 and the 1700/2100 paired. Those are the only bands Verizon uses for LTE. They likely won't be able to use 850 and 1900 until 2020. Unless they violate the terms they agreed to when they purchased Alltel. (Of course, purchasing Alltel when they did was a violation of the agreement they made when they became Verizon, so enough money in the right hands might see them break the 2020 agreement).

Charging a fee for someone who brings their own device is akin to refusing money. Illogical.

No question. You're inciting a riot. In China, if one were to dissent against the central government, one will be arrested or worse. Is that what you want here? What makes America great is Freedom. One doesn't have the right to do or say anything one wants but there are as few restrictions here as anywhere in the world and that is probably why those in other countries want to come here so bad.

"they're simply not the best provider any longer...." These things are all relative of course. If you are not a CDL driver who needs coverage in the entire lower forty-eight and you don't live in a rural area then they probably aren't.

It's an empty threat. If we know Verizon is full of it, better believe the people who deal with them regularly know it.

If I were AT&T, I would certainly raise activation and upgrade fees on customers signing two year contracts and gaining the subsidy. However, adding a $15 fee on customers bringing their on devices and receiving no subsidies is frankly counterintuitive.

No one believes this nonsense. Verizon is going to bid. No question about it. Even if they do not need the spectrum, keep in mind that this has never stopped them from bidding in past auctions despite not needing the spectrum. Why? A: It will drive up the cost of the spectrum for competitors. B. They do not want a new competitor to enter the fray. They did this with the cable companies in the past and there is ...

Free Data
Jul 20, 2015, 8:35 PM
in the Article: MetroPCS Dangles Free Data to Tempt Switchers forum

Amazing how the paradigm has shifted from Unlimited Data for $44.99 on devices like the Palm Treo and the Blackberry 7000 which couldn't use data for much beyond sending and receiving email. The carriers force data plans upon their customers when there was very little they could use it for. Now they have scammed them into using it at greater speeds and paying per GB. All the while selling 'air'.
