Verizon to Start Charging Partners for Text Messages
"VERIZON WIRELESS.....WE NEVER STOP CHARGING YOU"
Have to say that is the biggest reason I went the the Everything Plan with Sprint. Coverage from all the major carriers in my area is good but I have to admit the Sprint plans give your the most for you money
why are people freakin out. consumer rates will not go change at all with this announcement.
Have fun with using a company that is going bankrupt!! And you wonder why verizon is the profitable? Because they create new revenue streams.
I think WiMax does have a lot of potential. You just wait to what happens with WiMax into the 2nd half of next year.
Yes, Sprint has lost a lot of money because of some TERRIBLE business decisions, but I beleive that is changing.
But let's take worse case scenario and say that Sprint goes out of business in a year (doubtful since it looks like Xohm is going to be huge). No big deal. That means you don't have to pay the Galactic Empire of wireless for a year and you won't have to deal with this stuff. I've heard that VZW is working on a deal for '09 to charge their customers for breathing when you're on "the Network".
Back to topic: the bottom line is that this latest move is not going to benefit customers. As a matter of fact, it's probably going to end up costing them. Maybe not thr...
Yep, by the 2nd half of next yr Xohm will be mord mature. Check out the post I put in the General forum! HTC has a WiMax handset that resembles the HTC Touch HD in the works, very interesting.
Secondly if Verizon charges many of these third party providers, some may pull the plug on Verizon customers which would put Verizon at a disadvantage with customers who like to use Google SMS or other sms applications.
As the coverage for each carrier comes closer to parity people who did not have a choice about carrier due to coverage issues will have a choice and then they will want to have a phone that doesn't break in three months and access to SMS services.
In our market in the NW we already are porting people away from Verizon daily. Why? Rotten handset quality, coverage that has gotten worse and the fact that Verizon is the most expensive carrier ...
About what you said about call centers, the ability to communicate clearly and in English is the very core job duty of a person who talks on the phone for a job, the ability to be clear and understood.
Otherwise I guess Sprint customers are better off physically going into a Sprint store for whatever customer support they need.
So by southwes Fla, do you mean Tallahasee, or near there? I'm Las Vegas, but am originally from Connecticut.
T mobile has pretty much no 3g coverage (the 2 places that have it love it I assume). They need to offer all those minutes to make up for the dropped calls due to their piss poor network coverage.
Verizon dumps alot of money into their network. And they pay their employees very well. And customers receive an outstanding cellular network experience. So keep telling yourself that tmobile is better.......
