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.

DirecTV doesn't do Internet. Why would this help your Internet speeds?

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.

Re: Verizon overcharging for data usage
Jul 22, 2015, 1:49 PM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

"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 Works!

"T-Mobile Advanced Messaging is built to work across all devices, makers, platforms, and wireless operators." You will be just fine.

Looks good!

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

The money they will save by cutting the throats of middle management will pay for it.

in the Article: AT&T to Raise Activation and Upgrade Fees forum

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.

Sounds Great!

If one has service with T-Mobile, AT&T or one of their MVNOs. :cry:

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'.

...they are not a threat. "Gong believes H5OS can succeed in the ultra-low-cost smartphone and feature phone segments." Who is buying a smartphone and bragging about how cheap it was? Correct. No one.

It probably depends upon the cost. If the two are equal in network and Sprint is cheaper then switching would make sense.

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

"let T-Mobile, Sprint and USCC scoop it up." That's not going to happen. The only stipulation for purchasing spectrum should be that the winner must actually use the spectrum rather than hoard it, effectively freezing out its competitors.

Re: Wi Fi Calling

WiFi calling would allow phone usage ANYWHERE one receives a WiFi reception. Cruise ship Japan Etc... Verizon. Works just about everywhere in the United States but one has to pay roaming charges to use their phones in Europe.

in the Article: Verizon Says No Data Rollover Programs In Its Future forum

Exactly. This is the same jerk who gloated about the fact that rolling out 4g increased the chances of customers exceeding their data limits.
