AMP'd T-Mobile rumor...(no not a merger)

by mahoodlum    Jan 17, 2006, 2:21 PM

So, yesterday as I was having my Verizon phone looked at by a technician I had some time to kill (45 minutes) so I decided to take a walk in the mall and look at the competition, i.e. cingular and T-mobile, both of which I am interested in joining for reasons I will not go into at this point. However, the lady at the T-mobile kiosk and I got into a lengthy discussion, it began discussing things that T-mobile and cingular customers can do with their phones, i.e. unlocking them to gain more features (can't do that with Verizon) and then about the advantages of traveling abroad and still being on the network, ultimately we came to the issue of buying out contracts. I was mentioning how it would be a good policy for T-mobile to do such things in the US, mostly cause of the fact that they have a small share of the market. (oh by the way I am a disgruntled customer of Verizon) Well as the conversation carried on she had told me she heard that T-mobile and AMP'd are in talks with the idea of buying out contracts. I am not so familar with AMP'd but the 2 year contracts that Verizon and Cingular offer have been stalling the choices of customers and in response AMP'd is looking for a major carrier to join them in buying out contracts from Cingular and Verizon, this would be to my delight cause those ETF's (Early Termination Fees) have become a hindrance upon my decision to leave Verizon. Well anyhow, I find this as possible good news if it were to happen, I think contracts with consumers is a bad idea in the first place, even though T-mobile does and will put people in contracts with their service it is only for a year and not two years, but maybe, just maybe the industry will respond by eliminating their long term contracts...anyhow discuss if you wish.
