Samsung GS II - WiFi Calling

Can anyone confirm definitivelywhether or not this new device has WiFi calling?

I have seen conflicting reports on numerous message boards about whether or not the TMobile version of this phone has this feature (AT&T version does but slower processor). Earlier this week I was asked to re-think my plan to go for the BB Bold 9900 and the current RIM issues pushed me over the edge thus I am now seriously considering the GS II but the WiFi thing is a deal breaker for me.

Bold 9900 Price Drop

Does anyone know if/when TMobile might drop its price on the new Bold? I am in desperate need of a new phone but find the $299 a little tough to swallow...

? About the rate plans with contract

Is that if i get the rate plans and what not with contract, how much does TMobile tax for the plans like 59.99 or 49.99 a month? Because i don't want a contract anymore after my deal with Verizon runs out next December.

4g hotspot question

I have a rocket stick I use for my laptop. It is on the 39.99 5 gig no overage plan. Does anyone know if I can move the SIM out of it and use it in one of the new 4G hotpot units they have without affecting my plan. I was in the store the other day but the woman behind the counter didn't give me a concrete answer.

New plans, coverage, merger???

If the merger with ATT goes through, and you sign up with the new value unlimited plans, will you be able to keep this plan? Also, what will happen to the coverage being they use 2 different frequencies? Radio Shack says its going to increase the coverage to more than Verizon

OTA mytouch 4G

Got a question. In order for me to receive OTA from T-Mobile does the T-Mobile sync on the phone need to be on? I thought it only sync contacts.

Mytouch 4G...

I know it's an older phone but I got one for free recently and I love it. However I prefer a different theme style without the app icon borders. Anyone know of anyway to get different themes without rooting the device? I'm not opposed to rooting it either but I've heard this phone is one of the tougher eggs to crack.

using a mobile hotspot for a tmobile phone

Do you guys think it is possible to use a mobile hotspot, for a Tmobile phone that does not have a plan attached to the phone?

I know T-mobile lets you do wifi calling and I could use something like Google Voice to send text messages. And, of course a mobile hotspot will offer internet as well. Has anyone tried this?

Considering T Mobile

I am currently a Sprint customer but I'm considering T Mobile. They offer employees where I work a very generous discount plus they already have 4G where I live. Any feedback on coverage as well as the WiFi calling to help with coverage in your home would be greatly appreciated. I live in Greenville, SC.

BB Bold 9900

Can anyone tell me anything substantial about when this phone might drop on TMobile? I have been holding my breath and waiting that my current phone will hold out until this new BB comes out but I may not be able to wait much longer since I only have a cell and thus cannot be without a phone. I believe the delay/issue was at RIM's end so I will ask over on that board as well.

I just had to do a warranty of my phone (warranty is through November) with customer care. I am being charged a $20 warranty proccessing & service fee. I have argued with the reps & a supervisor on this. Warranty is warranty period! Regardless of any insurance coverages that I have or do not have on my phone, my device should be covered for manufactures defects for ONE SOLID YEAR FOR FREE! WTF?!! Anyone have comments/insight or know how to beat this becasue this is complete BS.


PS customer service everywhere has gone to HELL!

New Restock Fee

Wow, I just returned a phone I didn't like, with only one day's use, and wrapped exactly as when it was received -- down to the sticker that held the box together.

Apparently there is a NEW restock fee. For a phone I didn't like I was charged a *$50* restock fee -- whether I bought a different phone or not.

Pretty unhappy! This was a corporate store too, not just a store that sold t-mobile. They told me this went into affect on Sunday.

Choose your phone wisely!
