in the Article: T-Mobile to Squelch Data Speeds of Terms Violators forum

It's not generous. It's certainly not fair. Carriers want money but would prefer that consumers not actually use the service for which they are paying. Verizon can get away with this arrogance but I don't believe T-Mobile has the same resources to do so. Only time will tell.

Exactly. Sprint has no chance to compete with Verizon and AT&T on coverage. They have to sell what they have now. Selling what they hope to have next week or next year is a recipe for disaster.

Wow.

Poor execution. How can anyone take these guys seriously? I'm beginning to wonder if they will ever deploy VoLTE.

Wi Fi is not available where I live. Unbelievable that Verizon has defenders. Just goes to show that when Armageddon occurs there will indeed be those fighting by Satan's side who know exactly who they are fighting for.

...for the FCC to stand up to Verizon. It's bad enough that they were allowed to take over Alltel which was a clear violation of the agreement Verizon had which was supposed to keep its paws off of Alltel for ten years. Verizon always agrees to terms and then alters the deal when it is already on the ground. Enough already.

I thought DT wanted out of the U.S. market? They apparently feel really good about themselves because they have to know there is not a snow ball's chance of Sprint being allowed to buy them out. Therefore this offer must be extremely insulting to them or they actually believe they can thrive in the U.S. Or are they hoping for another poison pill deal like they received from AT&T when their acquisition fell through.

...unless you're paying per MB. They are very cool with those NOT on Unlimited Plans streaming. This is an end run on VZW's part and it just may work. Fran Shammo gloated to the share holders about how 4G would put money in their pockets because users will burn through their data allotments and then either pay overages or bump their plans up to higher tiers. The Unlimited Data consumers are the ones they want to get rid of. ...

Exactly. But Google pushed an update which stopped free tethering from working on my GS3 thereby forcing me to purchase the data plan as I was unwilling to risk rooting my device. In the end...Verizon always wins.

This is funny. Anyone using more than 4.7 GB per month is a data hog? They're basically enforcing the $29.99 for 5GB artificially.

Thieves hit a store in my area. They stole iPhones and iPads. No way Verizon allows those devices to be activated. So I'm dying to know where you bought your phone from.

I am in favor of the consumer having the freedom to take his phone to another carrier. When possible, however with the varying frequencies used by the major carriers does this even matter?

The bean counters over at Evil Red will calculate the four dollars per new subscriber as a loss in revenue and before you know it Verizon will increase its Activation fee to match.

It's just four dollars.

I doubt anyone will even notice the increase. Honestly, when i upgraded the Upgrade Fee wasn't even noticeable. By the way, wireless providers sell AIR. They have always gotten over on consumers. There's nothing new here.

Wow Verizon!

When even T-Mobile is handing you your head on a platter... Gobbling up a bunch of small fry carriers and sliding Consumer Reports a few bills does not make one the best carrier. Largest? Yes. Best? Not a chance. Back to the draw board.

Agreed. I have been several a VZW subscriber for fourteen years now and it's akin to being in a loveless marriage. I find myself making excuses as to why I stay. Three unlimited data plans is all I've got left.

Wow! Someone pinch me. Did I miss. Verizon's announcement that they were launching VoLTE in a market? Has AT$T truly beaten mighty Big Red to the punch. If so my advice to Shammo is: fewer commercials. And more action, punk.

I'm going with the Note 3. I'm 6'4" and 220. The Note suits me just fine. As far as waiting for the Note 4... I would prefer Apple get it's head out of it's arse and build a CDMA iphone capable of simultaneous voice and data. I would buy that

Is this a joke? I am going to pretend that this is actually a serious post simply because I am bored. One can not buy any random iphone and activate it on Verizon's network. It needs be a CDMA iphone. So GSM handsets (AT&T and T-Mobile) are out. Even though Verizon and Sprint use the same technology...they don't broadcast on ALL the same frequencies. SOME but not ALL. Then there is the question of the CDMA portion of the ...

The GS5 is supposedly water resistant so there may not be a need for a Lifeproof for it. That would open up the possibility of an Otterbox instead. I would still prefer a Lifeproof for the Note 3 though.

I'm actually trying to talk myself into the iphone simply because of the Lifeproof case. I would probably go Galaxy Note 3 right now if the Lifeproof were available for it. All things being equal i may just switch my GS3 and the Incredible and suspend the Incredible for three months.

Well, I am looking to replace my HTC Incredible. I would go for the Iphone if it were capable of simultaneous voice and data like every other 4GLTE phone on Verizon. It looks lite either the Samsung Galaxy 5 or the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

in the Article: Sprint Complains to FCC Over Proposed Spectrum Screen forum

There ought to be a compromise where Sprint can compete and agree to sell that garbage 2.5GHz in favor of keeping the 600MHz in markets where purchase of the 600MHz has caused Sprint to exceed the allowable amount of spectrum. If this cannot be hashed out, Sprint should simply announce its plans to sell the 2.5GHz spectrum.

There are no rivals for Sprint and T-Mobile to acquire or merge with the way Bell Atlantic Mobility and SBC did way back when. Get over the myth.

Neither T Mobile nor Sprint has ever shown an inclination th o build out rural areas. Too bad Sprint turned down Alltel Scott Ford way back when. Now look Alltel went and purchased Verizon instead. Well not really but I do think Verizon us being run more like Alltel was when I worked there.

Wrong. Verizon is the product of a merger. Bell Atlantic Mobility, Prime Co and GTE not to mention Air Touch Cellular. They divested some of GTE's properties to Alltel and later snagged Alltel back after Alltel had gobbled up Century Tel and Western Wireless cellular properties. That's not anyone choosing the largest carrier. Lest we forget that the entity formerly known as Cingular Wireless began as the product of Bell South and South Western Bell's ...
