AMP'd T-Mobile rumor...(no not a merger)
Amp'd Does Need Some Improvements
1) The lack of pre-pay is an obvious no-no. Amp'd is obviously aimed directly at teens an' college students, yet its all contract? And 2-YEAR contracts still? Give us a break. Get serious, get some prepay to go along with the contracts.
2) Obviously they need more phones. Kyocera Jet looks neat, but Amp'd needs at least 10-12 cool phones, in various price ranges. Even Virgin offers 10 phones, an' they aren't half as cool as they think they are.
3) The 'no overage' mobile-to-mobile minutes gimmick is lame. Maybe on prepay it'd be acceptable, but on contract it should be un...

Don't do it!
Their video content is 99% pay per view, totally uncompetetive with the rest of the market.
I was lied to about one of the key features of the phone.
No problem (i thought) I will just use the 14 day cancellation policy and move on to Sprint.
It's been over a month and they won't return my $$ for the phones. Dozens of empty promises of a returned call withing 24hrs. "Oh no problem sir we'll credit your card back right away" I'd be rich if I had a dollar for every time i've heard that! They won't even give me an address to ship the phones back!
They are either crooks or terrible business men.
DO NOT BUY IF YOU WANT TO HAVE REAL SERVICE
E816 Hollywood/AMPD Review
The phone is larger than my old one (Sprint Sanyo 8200), but thinner so it’s not too bad. Wish it had an antenna stub instead of the pull-out, but signal strength rarely changes with it in or out. Sound quality has been excellent despite readings of only 1 signal bar in some places (my office) while using the handset, bluetooth or the speakerphone. Nobody has even been able to tell I’m on the speakerphone yet, which surprises me. Coverage seems fine, but I’ve only tested it in the Seattle area . . .
Finally made the change.
Please help a noob
P.S. i like how many games it looks they have for this one, and the fact that you can watch the daily show and stuff like that, but maybe theres one...
Amp'd, "So far, NOT good"
Looked at the rate plans online....they seem to only have post paid, b/c i went in and did like i was going to order a phone...picked the plan, etc and at the end it had credit check info...thought they were gonna do prepaid too? The M2M is absolutley stupid....you are charged for calls to other users until u run out of minuts then m2m minutes apply....very very dumb. Ptt .99 a day or 19.99 for unlimited....wayyyy to pricey. The minute prices are good however. Data for the first 3 months is unlimited....i wonder how much it will be there after. I think amp'd mobile is crap already!!
Amp'd now allows anyone to get a phone
When is the Hollywood coming out??!??!?! :?
When is ampd coming to SC?
Question and Answer
1-866-811-0091 then hit #1 (one) three times in a row. This takes you directly to a cutomer care agent, and its usually really quick since they are a new wireless carrier.
