Fellow Phonescoopers: PLEASE Stop Posting "I Had Carrier X Once And They Really Sucked."

Why? Because posts like that add NOTHING to this community, and cannot be proven or disproven since the members here are all anonymous posting under usernames.

If you are having a problem, by all means DO post and ask for help. But, "I used to have so and so and they suck," is neither helpful nor beneficial to this community. Many folks read these posts for helpful information, and all negative blather like this accomplishes is it tarnishes the name of a reputable carrier that is probably doing all it can to stay afloat in this troublesome economy.

I once had a really bad experience with a carrier, and if I wanted to, I could write a book about it here. I'm not going to do that because basically, nobody cares, and one experience doesn'...

Just because "you" don't care does not mean that nobody cares. Sharing bad experiences as well as good ones is very beneficial to the online community.
Who cares about giving a reputable comnapny a bad name. When they have issues they they do not seem to be trying to fix, then they deserve everything that is said about them. Being adults, we have the right to complain as well as compliment and there is nothing wrong with saying a company sucks as long as you give reasons to back it up and the posters in here give very valid reasons. You can just read more posts in here and on howardforums to see just how many people feel the same. Boost is fine for talking but the are terrible for textting and customer care.
If you want to keep puttin...

Boy I don't know where you get your rampant paranoia from. You're seeing pathological liars and forum conspiracies where there are none.

I am sure there are a few lifeless idiots out there who go into forums and post random incidetory remarks trying to antagonize other posters but that's the the case here. If you want some people to yell at, then I suggest you try the AT&T and Verizon forums. There are always verbal slugfests going on in there. If their "we're number one" competitiveness doesn't drive you to drink, nothing will.

All I can say is that you have greater faith in mankind than I do. My experience on this forum has been that you can have the proof right in front of these folks, and they'll still argue. What they can't argue, they fabricate.

One poster I debated tried to "educate" me about batteries. I have worked for Duracell for nearly 20 years and the other guy never had, yet he was the "expert." When I asked him some leading questions about batteries, like why are heat treated pallets only used to transport them and a dozen or so others, he suddenly invented a "fr

You both have a good point. I have seen it both ways. There are some misguided souls out there who will get multiple screen names and post false information. The problem is that the forums have anonymity. Nobody has any accountability.
Most people are not that devious and are merely venting frustration.
All of the carriers have compelling reasons to choose them and all of the carriers have weak spots.

I don't believe a consumer should really depend on what is posted in one of these forums to make their buying decision.

Who are you to tell people what they can and can't say on here!?


If you believe in censorship, you are living in the wrong country. We don't need nor want you here.

Looks to me as if YOU are the one wanting to censor opinions, by telling me I have no right to voice mine.
