Re: a00000442ce4f9 Listed lost or stolen, but is brand new out of the package???? HELP!!!

in the Verizon Wireless forum

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.

Unanimous decision.

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?

Pagepluscellular.comPagepluscellular.com T he $55 monthly plan sounds like a match for what you have with T-Mobile.

I would go with Page Plus. Verizon's network at a reasonable price.

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.

Where are you Verizon?

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 ...

in the Verizon Wireless forum

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.

...only makes a case for the S3 and the S4...so far. So there is no advantage for the S5 over the Note3...right now. Maybe I should consider the S4?

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.

in the Article: FCC Chair Stands by Proposal to Limit AT&T and Verizon forum

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 ...

Why does DT want out? They want to cash in their chips while they're on a roll. Both one is going to compete with AT&T and Verizon...not even a merged Sprint/T-Mobile entity. If the FCC is basically stating that none of these four will be allowed to merge...I'm good with that. They should also make it clear that AT&T and Verizon will not be allowed to acquire any other carriers going forward.

While I am distrusting of consolidation, I'd much rather see this than the AT&T Mobile merger we almost had. Face it, Deutch Telekom doesn't want to operate in the U.S. This is the best of several rough options I suppose, Maybe Google could step in and make a bid for T-Mobile...

Small fry carriers always do this sort of thing. Hell, I should know it seems like I was always working for one. SunCom did this sort of thing to make themselves attractive to ATTWS. Air Touch Cellular did the same. The only small fries that DIDN'T spend like the Federal government were AllTel and US Cellular. Give away phones, have cut rate plans and a weak foot print and wait for one of the ...
