in the Article: AT&T Doesn't Like 600MHz Auction Rules, May Skip It forum

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 ...

I have not seen the commercials and am quite surprised at this. Do they specifically mention T-Mobile?

in the Article: FCC 'Highly Skeptical' About Sprint/T-Mobile Tie-Up forum

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 ...

I have three smartphones with unlimited data and one feature phone. I only upgrade on the feature phone line. Fortunately, I was able to have a representative online change the MEID back to the flip shot.

Maybe AT&T didn't have a 8O press release. As to which is better... They're both evil behemoth carriers.

in the Article: AT&T Carves Subsidies Out of Monthly Plans forum

This is why I believe in keeping T-Mobile and Sprint around. They DO matter. They are never going to compete head to head with Verizon and AT&T but they give them something to think about at least. I don't ever want to see Verizon or AT&T allowed to gobble up another carrier.

Upgrade/Switch Device

Once upon a time, things were simple. If I chose to upgrade online it was easy. I just logged into My Verizon, ordered a phone and when it arrived, i merely called the phone number and chose option two to accept the contract terms but activate the phone later. It's not so easy these days. I call the activation line and there is no option for activation later. I was given the option to ...

Don't forget...at the end of the day AT&T is eliminating a competitor. Verizon and AT&T's ultimate endgame is two carriers. They'll settle for four...for now.

I never believed they were actually going to use this AWS spectrum. I thought it was just a way to keep carriers like T-Mobile from grabbing it and potential new carriers from acquiring it and starting new companies. I am happy to see this spectrum actually put to use.

If they suspended your number then paying your balance off should get it reconnected automatically. If your service was disconnected for non-payment you need to call them and try to get them to reconnect service with that number. But...didn't you port your number to Google Voice or was that another poster? If you ported your number to GV I would NOT port your number back to Verizon. You can have GV point your GV number ...

If you're going to buy an iphone then buy it from AT&T. Not that there is wrong with Verizon or Sprint. I've been with Verizon for ten years now. The fact is that Apple has chosen to make the CDMA iphone without the ability to surf and talk simultaneously. What is the point in forking out $300 for an iphone when one can get a Galaxy S4 that DOES allow one to talk and surf ...

"...The iPhone switches to 3G data when simultaneous voice and data is needed because there are not separate antennas for the 4G LTE radio and the voice radio. Apple did not want to add the expense of a second antenna which would allow the LTE radio to have it's own antenna rather than sharing the antenna between the GSM/CDMA radios and the LTE radio."

I like this analogy. Let's replace girlfriend with...prostitute though. Better. Wireless carriers (and frankly we can expand this to any successful business and even unsuccessful ones who just can't seem to figure it out) want to provide you the least expensive product at the greatest cost possible. They don't want to set their prices so high that you would consider leaving for another pimp, however. Ever call to cancel your service? "I'm sorry that ...

Thanks, John. I forgot about Softbank. Well, chances are good that Vodaphone is just cashing in its chips I suppose. Although all of Europe uses GSM...like T-Mobile. I wonder if Verizon Communications finally became desperate enough to pay any price or did Vodaphone just become bored with being a silent partner?

This is why some guys are persistent. Eventually you'll wear her down and she'll say "Yes." I wonder if Vodaphone will now buy Sprint or T-Mobile or rather take the money and run.

Actually, I have gotten that call before and reading this post makes me happy I am no longer in technical support. I could never understand why the customer wouldn't simply remove the data card or turn the computer off.
