Roaming question ?

On the phone you can search for networks and usally T-mobile and at&t come up. When you click on at&t it says your sim card will not allow you to connect. Is there anyway to connect to at&t network ? do you need to unlock sim card or phone ? was just wondering if you would be able to use at&t in areas where there is no T-mobile.

Adding Employer Discount Extends Contract?

Hi, I work for Verizon Wireless, adding an ECPD (employer discount) with us does not extend your contract by any means. However, someone I know who was about to switch from T-Mobile to Verizon just recently added their employer profile to get a monthly discount on their bill, but nothng was explained and we found out just recently. Best Buy added the employee profile. I just want to check if this is correct practice for any that might know.

Thanks!

Hopefully the End ALL Be ALL to this pricing argument

I have been tired of hearing how the phone installments make T-Mobile more expensive than the other postpaid carriers, because people are hung up on the 20.00/mo phone installment. So below is a price comparison of somewhat comparable plans, even though in the case of VZ and ATT, the data is only 1GB, compared to unlimited with T-Mo, Sprint and US Cellular. For me, 1 GB would simply not be enough.


Verizon Wireless:

1 line- Unlimited talk/text/ 1 GB data= 40 line access+50 data= 90.00

2 lines-Unlimited talk/text/1 GB of shared data= 40 line access x 2 lines + 50 data= 130.00


ATT w/ Mobile Share:

1 line- Unlimited talk/text/ 1 GB data= 45 line access + 40 data = 85.00

2 lines- Unlimited talk/text/ 1 GB shared data= 45 l...

So.....

I am a little confused....What else is new...Right?

I am going this week to sign up with T-Mobile....Finally gonna get the HTC One, If I put down the $20 and pay the monthly fees with the newer system, If I decided to upgrade to something else? I mean does the cost of the phone just get added to the oerall payment until thats paid off? For instance I sign up and am paying whatever it is a month for a phone, then decide 6 months from now to get something else that's $500, do I add the phone to my account and start paying the difference to the one I was paying on?

Thanks

T-Mobile Phones (New Rate Plans)

OK, so there are no more contracts, however, if you want a new phone, ie: you have to put down a deposit of $20 then pay installments for 24 months. It's gona cost a total of like $500+ for a new phone.

In the long run, its not cheaper. I would rather sign a new contract with another company, and only pay $199.99 for a phone.

Does anyone know if this applies to loyalty customers as well?

64GB Galaxy S4. . .

If anyone knows if T-Mobile is going to get the 64GB S4, please let me know. That is if the 64GB S4 will actually exist this time! Samsung did say there was going to be a 64GB S3,...there neverrr was.

TMOBILE NEW PLAN

Tmobile sucks! I was planning to switch from Verizon.. but when I found out the new plan of Tmobile, it costs me more than on what I am paying now. Sprint doesnt have a good reception in my area. I have 4 phones and I want to lower my monthly rate and at the same time Im enjoying the data service for unlimited. Is there a way that I can lower my monthly bill?

Signal Strength

Hey all

I just wanted to chime in and ask if there was anyone else in the Boston area with T-Mobile? I wanted to check before I leave Verizon. I did check the map on the website and it lists my location as having dark green which is good I know but I wanted to hear from people that actually have it.

Thanks

TMO 1900MHz network modernization question

I was looking at the specs of my HTC One S and it doesn't have the WCDMA 1900.

So I'm wondering with TMO pushing to spread their 1900MHz coverage to work with older iPhones. Are they shutting down the 1700Mhz? Therefore limiting phones like the One S. Or will these phones that were specifically made for TMO before their modernization continue to work just fine?

PLEASE have your verification ready

Hello everybody - I'm a T-Mobile rep... normally, customers are very good at verifying an account. They provide either the last four of the SSN/TaxID based on account type, or a password if it has been set up.

Customer know what we need, and have always been very good at this. I get a verification escalation about once every two weeks, but it never goes anywhere becuase of FCC regulations.

I try hard NEVER to quote contract terms, or quote rules that are doled out by a federal agency, like the FCC. I save that until last, I know nobody likes to hear that from a representative.

Lately, I have been getting LOTS of calls from custoemrs, individual and business, that just simply dont have the required verification (last of SSN/TAXID(EI...

Just received the Blackberry Z10

This is a great device- phenomenal actually. The UI is fantastic, data speeds on the T-Mobile network are amazing, and other things are really good. I don’t have any negatives right now, and I’ll update you guys later on as soon as use all of the features but as of right now, this is a big step up from the older blackberries and better than the IPHONE, and maybe better than the Samsung devices. QNX is fluid and it’s very fast. To be continued.

How is the coverage in NY?

I live in Suffolk county on Long Island and work in NYC and was wondering about T-Mobiles coverage. I have 1 co-worker who has a T-Mobile account and loves it, however she has always had T-Mobile, for like 10 years or so and can't compare it to any other carrier.

I am on Sprint right now, and have no complaints. I've been on Verizon, and AT&T and all 3 have there dead spots and such so I'm used to that. usually its a dropped call here and there, nothing really big for any of those 3 but T-Mobile seems to be the least expensive of them all and I was wondering is it worth the switch?

Can anyone tell me what there coverage is like, call quality, data speeds, etc..? Thanks

T-mobile USA officially launches the Blackberry Z10 for customers. Unique price point. You have two options: 1. pay in full or 2. pay $ 99.99 now and then $18 per month for 24 months (you can pay more if you want) Total price $531.99. I'm getting mine tomorrow.

Smile

Your bill is also lower, and once its paid off its $18 per month lower.

New Prepaid options (Game Changer)

There are new prepaid options for both individual, family plans. There are also new mobile broadband devices. keep in mind that when you have a classic plan and you want to change you have to pay a migration fee of up to $200. I suggest waiting but if you do the math you might make out in the end.... there are a lot of savings. Enjoy

Need Help with plan pricing with potential discounting

Ok I am familiar with Sprint, Verizon & AT&T rate plans. I used to work for Verizon so I know everything about them. I know longer work for Verizon and I'm doing some price comparisons.

I called T Mobile sales department but I am very cautious with some of the information I was provided. Here are a few questions for the experts on Phonescoop.

This is what I want (2) Smart Phones (2) Basic Phones

1. T Mobile sales rep said if I was a member of AAA I can get a 10% discount similar to Sprint. (VZW doesn't have a membership discount) Anyways she stated the 10% would be off the total amount of the plan excluding a la carte features such as insurance etc. (The majority of carries only take the discount of a certain amount not the total) I...
