Price of the Angel

Hey guys. I was just wondering if someone could explain to me why the Angel is $20 more than the Jet. It doesn't really explain much on the amp'd website. Thanks.

ampd needs working on

the reason i say this is because of its walkie talkie. you can only use it with other people with ampd which i don,t think a lot of people will be buying so quick(like boost mobile).And their coverage isn't in a lot of places proberly is the reason its not in stores right now but i hope they inprove on coverage because that is one major role in new services which would influence people to go to.And my coverage still isn't listed which i soon hope they resolve that problem

Getting Amp'd

IMHO I am loving it. I work for Verizon so I have to compare it to them, as its all I know.

Pros:
-Works off Verizon NW, works in my area.
-99 cent DL's
-$29.99 plan for those who don't need 450 minutes.
-$10.00 Unlimited Texts to anyone, any provider, any e-mail or chat system, or $14.99 for unlimited Pix/Texts to anyone. So much better than any other provider on Texts.
-30 day trial period (not 15)
-$150 cancellation fee (vs other competitors this is cheap)
-All camera phones
-Currently no deposits, either yay or nay on credit checks.
-$200 Unlimited Plan (yes you get 6k minutes with Verizon, but I have seen business ppl go over these, Unlimited is nice, plus the phone is free then)
-18 month Contracts!
-Fast and friendly cus...

the amp'd commercial (you, shake your junk), while funny as hell, shows a 'viral video' in which a guy gets killed by a PT cruiser..saw it on Ebaums..anyone else see this..

They Went to 18 Month Contracts..

Ok, for the 'official' launch, they've now gone to 18 month contracts. Which is an improvemnt over the 2-year contracts they were askin' for before.

Still... Amp'd is aimed squarely at the 15-25 year old crowd. No 1-year contracts and no pre-paid, with THOSE demographics? I think they're gonna have a tough time wit' that. Sad

Oh, an' the sucky 'no overage' mobile-to-mobile is still around. Amp'd don' seem to understand that that's too ghetto to have on anythin' 'cept prepaid or the $29.99 contracts. Guess they'll learn soon enough.

It ain't like true m2m would cost 'em much.. there aren't a lotta people on Amp'd yet, nor would I expect 'em to ever get very big. They might be Virgin Mobile-sized some day, if everything goes good.

Amp'd Propaganda

here is something about amp'd from a newsletter here.....

"Amp'd is a new type of wireless company who is targeting young adults who are interested in cable television styled entertainment. (Isn't that what cable television is for?) Amp'd Mobile premiered its broadband wireless service last month, combining clarity and coverage with the fastest download speeds in North America. With fully customizable handsets and content, Amp'd is bringing a more relevant, personal experience to the wireless lifestyle (Is that kinda like being gay? That's a lifestyle, too.) with unique music, video, community, entertainment, sports and gaming plus pricing plans that make sense. Using some of the same game developers that create for th...

Nominees for Phones You'd Like to See on Amp'd..

The Jet/Angel an' the Hollywood are cool, but Amp'd obviously needs mo' phones than that.

Phones I'd nominate to be on Amp'd (keepin' in mind that Amp'd is cdma/EVDO):


- the RAZR. An easy choice.
- the LG 9800 ('the V'). Also an obvious choice.
- Samsung 950 (maybe in a diff'rent color, though)
- Samsung 970 (ditto)

Let's Hope the Prepay Plans, When They Come, Aren't Stupid

See subject title. Sad

Seriously, I hope Amp'd learns from lame-o prepay plans like INPulse an' Tracfone, how NOT to do prepay. As in

- Prepay people don't really like having things like automatic dollar-a-day fees that hit whether you use the phone or not. Link fees to usage, not non-usage, or peeps will feel like they're bein' ripped off.

-Prepay folks don' like sky-high rates (like 30 to 50 cents a minute or more). Jus' cus' its prepay, don't mean you can bend folks over. All the cool phones, whizbang 3G services, an' cool TV commercials in the world won't help ya if the rates flat suck.

- Prepay folks don't like worrying about their minutes expiring. If you need to impose some kind o' 'monthly minimum' charge, then do it by r...

Rate plans

Does anyone know how much the rate plans are gon be after the first 3 months...It is for teens, they have to have an unlimited text messaging plan.


And since they use Verizon networks, you think itll be possible to use verizon cdma phones, or even get Verizon unlimited mobile to mobile...i doubt it, but its worth asking.

WTF is amp'd?

Yeah I know is a new carrier... blah blah. Who is it partnered with? is it like virgin mobile or boost? I'm just confused, I've seen a few commercials but that's about it.
Are they GSM, CDMA or IDEN?
I don't give a rats Smile I love my sprint is just that curiousity killed the cat....

Prepay Options Are On the Way

I wuz scratchin' my head 'cus Amp'd has been contract-only durin' the soft launch, but 'parently they are not totally insane, prepay is on the way. From the RCRNews article:

Amp'd has said it plans to also offer prepaid rate plans shortly after launch.

http://www.rcrnews.com/news.cms?newsId=25114 »

Given dat their demographic is the 15-25 age group, that's good news.
