I am leaving the US - Will Sprint and T-Mobile let me cancel my contracts?

It appears I am moving to Canada.

I am in contracts with both T-Mobile and Sprint, and would like to figure out what my options are.

Many thanks.

Any suggestions for an American moving to Canada with respect to service?

Best service to move to from Verizon?

Afternoon all,

Question for you. Verizon (I'm in DC area) does not offer the Trio 600 in their plan and will not give me and answer when or if ever, only rumors. So I will be switching so i can get the Trio 600.

T-Mobile, Sprint, Cingular or ATT...which one is best?

after a buddy of mine accidentally dropped my t720 into a glass of water, it shorted and stopped working. however, i, like an idiot, hadnt saved my numbers on my sim card. now i lost them all, i was wondering if there was a way to retrieve them from my old phone? can i disassemble it, run it through a program kit, anything?
anyone have any ideas?

thanks, jack

Cingular & AT&T (pre merger roaming..)

according to this news article,

"The company is also allowing customers with GSM phones to automatically roam onto other companies' networks in their home cities at no extra charge. This could help users who run into dead spots with no AT&T Wireless coverage but a Cingular or T-Mobile USA tower" ... » ...

is that going to be a 2 way thing??
(on AT&T phones they could pick up anybody, its just a question of being charged, and according the above, they are not, MY QUESTION IS ON CINGULAR WHERE YOU COULD ONLY PICK UP, WHAT THEY WANT YOU TO PICK UP (IRDB) WOULD YOU BE ABLE TO PICK UP AT&T)

Wanna Trade?

Anyone want to trade with me? I wanna trade my 1 week old Nokia 3300 music phone for a Nokia 3100. The phone is in Extreme mint condition and I will only trade it for a Nokia 3100 or a Nokia 6800 in brand new to mint condition. This phone is an At&t phone and I would like a At&t phone in return. Now my reason for a trade is because I don't want to have to pay for a new phone so I am just willing to trade with someone who may have wanted this phone. I can't exchange this phone for a diffrent one beacuse I already asked At&t and they told me I would have to pay for a another phone...let me know if anyone is intrested.

ATTN: DEALERS Port dealer line to another carrier

Anyone know anything about dealer lines? I'm wanting to port my at&t dealer gsm line to a Verizon personal account. Has anyone had any personal experience with this? I'm imagining some snags in that the dealer line is under the company's name that I work for so the port would have to be in the company's name on Verizon. Then I guess i could just do a change of financial responsiblity after it ports. Otherwise I'd have to convert it to a personal at&t line and they'd ask for a 1 year contract, then I wouldn't be able to port out. ???

I'm working on getting this figured out with my store's at&t and verizon reps, but they take forever.

I'm Phone Challenged! - Innostream INNO 90 -


I know this is a VERY stupid question but....I have always had such a basic phone and now I have this new fang-dangled gadget INNOSTREAM INNO 90.

I was TRYING to download Usher's new song as my ringtone by following some instruction on a website. I went to my "Internet" button and typed in several addresses in the "Go to Address" button. Now I have all that garbage in the "Go to Address" button.

How can I just go back and delete all of those?

And while I'm asking questions...CAN I send new ringtones to this phone or not? Rolling Eyes
