"they decided to go with Wimax over LTE"
No they didn't. When Sprint launched Wi-Max there was no other option. It was either launch Wi-Max or lose the 2.5Ghz spectrum they were awarded for vacating the spectrum which bordered Public Safety. So they tried to turn lemons into lemonade. What should they have done? Given the spectrum back because LTE wasn't ready yet? Uh...hell no. Sure it's not as valuable, as 700 or 800, but it does have value and ...
Re: The awesomeness of Google Voice!!!
"The big advantage carrier based messaging has over Google is it's usually included in basic wireless packages at no additional charge. While Google Voice itself is free, the costly data plans needed to support it are not." They can afford to give away something which costs them nothing to provide in the first place.
Re: Google Voice on dumbphones is STILL better!
I agree. Google Voice beats Carrier voice mail hands down. I use Google Voice with Friends and Family. I have advised individuals who carry two phones to drop one and sign up for GV. It just makes too much sense. As far as using it without a smartphone...of course. I HAVE a smartphone and I don't make calls from the GV app because I need my phone to call FROM my Google Number. ...

Re: What does Verizon CHARGE you???!!!!???
This is fun. Let's keep this thread going until Verizon changes its name (back) to Alltel.
Re: My bad experience with Verizon
So how much is Big Red paying you?
Re: take the money
Poor Sprint. Nothing has gone well for them since the "Merger of Equals" I'm cheering for them though. I hope it all works out.
"There are two companies..."
:lol: Bingo! AT&T and Verizon will NEVER admit that. When I worked at Verizon they were constantly reminding us not to disparage Sprint and to pretend that we considered them a competitor. Deep inside though...we knew the truth. AT&T was our only competition. Nothing has changed. TWO wireless carriers just isn't going to get it. So yeah, restraints will indeed be placed upon the Duopoly to ensure that there are alternatives. Thanks for playing.
Anti-trust law. Google it or whatever the hell you kids do these days. But to make a comment without having any idea what you are talking about is tantamount to a fly landing in my pudding. Sure you are entitled to state an uninformed opinion but that doesn't mean you will not be swatted in the nose.
??? What exactly does this being America have to do with free enterprise? There is no unfettered capitalism here. If that were so then ABC/NBC would never have been broken up or AT&T or Standard Oil. Give it a rest already. AT&T and Verizon have been violating auction rules for years. Verizon broke its promise to leave Alltel alone for ten years following the merger that created the behemoth in the first place. Seriously. ...
Re: "Upgrade at 20 months was never a contract condition..."
Exactly. Why pay $13 for a rep to take that call? Five calls and one has lost that sixty dollars anyway.
Re: ne2, cotracts, and alternate upgrades
"Losses" :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Er...they sell air. Pure profit. The only thing that really burns profits are employee salaries. They are getting over all day every day. "Losses" :P
Re: I am. . .
Farewell. If only more of us had the courage to escape.
Verizon how the mighty have fallen. Kyocera? Really? Lest we forget that travesty circular slider thing. KX2 or SE47 or something? Whatever it was the phone was truly horrible.
Re: I'd say it's another reason to avoid Verizon
Well...having dealt with the public for thirteen years, I personally can't blame them. People just beg to be fleeced of their cash. Verizon is only obliging them.
Re: Goodbye 20 month upgrades
I have no doubt that Verizon will allow some one twenty months into a two year contract walk. They'll have ripped his or her's wallet apart in any case.
"Upgrade at 20 months was never a contract condition..."
...because you say so? I think Verizon would let an individual out of his or her contract. Hell, by the time this were to become an issue the ETF would only be $60 anyway. Why fight that battle?
Re: Goodbye 20 month upgrades
The best reason to avoid subsidized equipment remains keeping one's Unlimited Data Plan. Otherwise...may as well go to Page Plus and use Verizon's network for less.
"Do I need to find a NEW JOB."
No. You're good. More than likely you make less than your Verizon counterpart. If anyone's throat gets slashed it will be the higher paying VZW rep. When Verizon was taken over by Alltel, many of the Alltel reps made less than the minimum salary for those positions and had to have their salaries raised to the floor. Then...long tenured Verizon reps began to be let go.
Re: Verizon Took of my unlimited data but is fixing it.
:lol: Tries? My bill says they are getting all they want every month.
Re: Hell and No.
Tough. C-Spire bought Corr Wireless just to hold it and ransom it to the highest bidder. No way this should be allowed. If they weren't going to use those assets they vnever should have been allowed to purchase it.
Hell and No.
Wait...wait...wait a damned minute! How is C Spire (Cellular South) going to play the same game AT&T and VZW have been playing for years? Buy up a mom and pop and them hold onto it and then flip it to a rival... Just goes to show...everyone bad mouths the man while secretly wanting to be the man.
Re: They should buy US Cellular already
Uh...you HAVE seem T-Mobile's microscopic footprint right?
Not just no but HELL NO. They should never have been allowed to buy Alltel and I can't believe this takeover was allowed,
..."way, way too big of a company!" I can't believe they are being allowed to buy any small fry carriers at all.
I Didn't Realize...
NEC still sold cell phones.
Re: For all you Blackberry Lovers out there
Obviously. *Shrug* To each his own. I fail to see the point in going back to Blackberry for a touchscreen phone. I miss having a physical keyboard. I'll only go back for that.
Re: For all you Blackberry Lovers out there
I'll pass. I want a Full Qwerty.
Re: Unlimited cellular data is unsustainable
Ummmm...no. The solution is to do exactly what I am doing: Cling to my Unlimited Data plans as though my very life depended upon it.
"...2G and 3G services can be shuttered..." I've got until 2020 to hold on to my 1x handsets.
I Was Wrong
I have been accusing Verizon of hoarding spectrum for years. (Which they have been) And I am sure that I am on record somewhere voicing my belief that they would never actually deploy the AWS spectrum. I believed that they were merely trying to keep the competition from getting its hands on the AWS. I was apparently wrong and I am admitting it. Unbelievable. They are actually going to use that spectrum after ...
...T-Mobile has LTE? I'm so confused.
Re: No Commitment price?
I remember you. I seem to remember you as posting before T Bone.
Re: Yaye!!! Now go kill Sprint!!!
DT IS selling T-Mobile. This reverse merger business is all about the management at DT beating feet from the American market with all due haste. And who can blame them? This reminds me of one of those Rent-to-Own deals. The buyer really has no business being able to buy a house, but the owner is SO desperate to exit that he is bending over backwards to allow the poor S.O.B. to buy.
Re: Yayyy, finally!!!. .
This merger won't create a competitor for Verizon and AT&T.
Re: Your logic would make sense IF...
Talk about beating a dead horse. You just had to have the last word, didn't you?
