No mention of this being in 'response' to anything?

I was thinking the same thing when I read the title. HAHA. All these people bashing the other carriers for responding and giving new options. So funny...AT&T and Verizon never claimed that their programs were cheaper than T Mobiles, but all the people in the blogs blew up about how expensive it is...everything is expensive lol. This is certainly a response to the Next and Edge programs. I love how the huge levels of competition makes everyone eat their words on a weekly basis. I wonder what the plans will be like this time next year with VoLTE and LTE Advanced. ARPU will likely be close to 100.00 by then. Drooling Drooling Drooling

I dont think people were bashing ATT and VZ because their programs were not as cheap as TMo. They were bashing because customers are getting double charged for their devices, but under the disguise that they are good programs for the customers. But for TMo, they actually reduced the price of their plans (Value Plans) to add the phone program. That is the difference. It is not a "who is cheaper?" argument. It is a "what is actually a good deal for its customers?" argument.

If ATT and VZ lowered their price plans for these device programs, they would still be more expensive than TMo, but people would not have a problem with them, because they would be offering a fair deal for their customers.

I agree that their prices are higher, but honestly for what I pay for, I am happy that I have not dropped a call or had a bad data connections in almost 3 years. I am with ATT and really like their network improvements. It is worth the 140 I pay per month for 2 iphones and a QMD sharing plan. I need the coverage they have. If Tmo had more coverage, I would reconsider the pricing war side of it. I hope that Tmo pushes their network reach farther and sooner as this is what is really going to help drive better competition in service prices. Sprint (whoa...that just echoed alot...)

Exactly! Companies like AT&T are not trying to compete with T-mobile - as in they're not trying to be "ultr...

Very true their coverage is very sporadic specially when traveling constantly. LTE for example in my area are available for about a mile then it cuts off for another mile and so on. Dont even bother not having WiFi connected on your phone when you are indoors because the signal absolutely sucks indoors. xD
