Ok, you can PREDICT in the first week.. jus' don't expect me to take it seriously. Sad

Maybe if a carrier was named 'The Titanic' an' was tryin' to charge $600 a month for a 5-yr contract that had 50 Anytime minutes, no n/w/m2m, an' their only phone choices were an analog bag phone and a string between cans, I might agree.

Amp'd has only soft-launched.. the jury's still out.

well ok you can PREDICT in the first week... just don't expect me to take YOUR prediction seriously.

maybe if they lowered the price as a HEY WE ARE NEWBIES COME GET US DEAL. it might work but those plans a silly. yea their store's or kiosk will get attention but as soon as a price is named people will turn around and bounce.

But they are givin' newbies a deal. When you sign up, you get the followin' fo' FREE:

- 128MB memory card
- headset
- extended battery
- some preloaded content
- 3 months of unlimited data

My an' my friends never got all o' that with any other carrier we ever signed up with. Shocked

If that much free stuff is a 'gimmick', then you can gimmick me all day long, baby. Very Happy

An' the plans are priced pretty much the same as Verizon an' Cingular .. the diff is, Ampd' gives you a lil' more minutes (Amp'd $59 plan gives you 1000 Anytime minutes, Vzw an' Cing give you 900), but thats cancelled out by Ampd's ghetto m2m (which only is free once you run out of minutes).

That's really the only thing I'd cry about.. the ghetto m2m. It might be ok on the prepay plans that are coming, and on their $29.99 postpaid plan, but on anything else.. nuh-uh, bad call, give peeps the real m2m.

My daughter just got the service. We live in Scottsdale and she's goin to school in Tempe. Her service is pretty good... actually better than mine a little bit.

So far so good.

Thats the thing. I am using VZW... I have a LG V as well as a Moto 815 and a Treo 650 and her phone does sound clearer than the ones I use. We can stand side by side at the corner of Shea and Hayden at the Scottsdale Country Club and her voice quality will be better than mine. Also, it seems like her mobile web is a touch quicker as well.

Yes I actually have Amp'd and I'm loving it. Even in places where I can't access amp'd live, calls are still great. I'm visiting in Culpeper, VA and my friend had a verizon phone and her phone said roaming, when I glanced at mine, it still said Amp'd Mobile. No roaming, no nothing. I couldn't access amp'd live, but I still have a full signal and crystal clear calls.
