Once again here in the US this is something that will only work on T-Mobile. And like their HD voice there is no interoperability between T-Mobile and other carriers here in the US. Am I getting that right?
Line access fees gone up???
It appears to me that ATT has also raised their line access fee from $20 to $30 with these plan changes.
Is offering a $350 trade in credit as well.
If VZW & ATT want to compete
They'd stop charging a line access fee. T-Mobile one price fees & taxes included is pretty slick trick.
And they'll be manned by immigrants.
STEAM education. Meaning more jobs for immigrants here in the US.
First LTE extender
I still have the first (And from the looks of it, smaller) Verizon/Samsung LTE extender. Not sure how they're going to roll out 5G home service when there are plenty of urban dead zones for Verizon.
I like the bump in base model memory. But Face ID? I know it's about security. And that you're not suppose to use your phone while driving. It is however very convenient to unlock your phone without having to look at it in driving situations. And unlock it by just placing a thumb on it. And just glance at it for the information you're needing at the time. I suspect Face ID will require bringing the phone into your ...
Really not a fan
Of these Motorola phones anymore. Bring back the the Droid line!
Again you'll need a new handset to take advantage of this new found spectrum and coverage. Phone makers must just love T-Mobile.
Using WiFi Hotspots
I'm assuming Comcast means the modems they rent their internet customers. I know you can turn off the open WiFi if you'd like. But I have to wonder now with their cell service relying on those modems. If Comcast has overridden that, or could???
Follow T-Mobile's suit in that the money is in streaming data. But I think T-Mobile is going for subscriber and post paid growth with Binge On. Verizon will continue to nickle & dime customers for data and overages incurred while using their streaming services.
This makes no sence
As soon as last year, I left my Netflix account set on HD play back. And blew through my data allotment from VZW. Log back into my Netflix account via a PC, set play back quality to medium and no more problems blowing through my data allotment. So if Netflix has been down grading play back on VZW & ATT for the last 5 years. How does it explain my experience?
That's it??? Free Hulu for a year.
It'd be nice if it actually worked
Typical Verizon fashion, I've tried several times to get this. And all I get is a error message.
"Customers who choose one of the other DirecTV packages will still see a $10 monthly discount when wireless and television services are combined on a single bill." Wonder, is this $10 off wireless or TV? Or a combination of the two? And can it be used in conjunction with other discounts?
Just got this phone
And for all the talk about it's screen, I think my Note 4 gets brighter than the LG G4. Also the G4's screen gets pretty warm at times.
Re: Other G4 Leather Colours
Problem with preorder
So I tried to preorder the G4 and it seems since I'm a existing customer or because I'm paying full price. It will only allow me to order the G4 with the grey plastic back. :o I try to select the other backs and it doesn't do anything. Anyone else experience this? Update: It seems if I go through as a new customer I can only get grey as well. Not the black leather. Come on Verizon!
Galaxy Note 4 Lollipop
The "sensitive" setting seems to be missing from the app notifications?? :?
Will it still have 'Duo focus'??
First they're not going to follow TMO & ATT with data roll over. Now they're raising prices for activation's & upgrades. They're really trying to win customers over with their "We're the best and most expensive. Take it or leave it" motto.
If enough customers left, they'd change their tune.
Ain't that the truth!
"None of the major U.S. carriers have yet announced plans to improve the speeds of their LTE networks to these levels." How about just improving!?! Seems as if T-Mobile is the only carrier doing anything.
TMO MMS Question
It appears on the iPhone with Wi-Fi calling enabled you aren't able to send picture messages. If you disable Wi-Fi calling but still are hooked up to a Wi-Fi network, or no Wi-Fi MMS go through fine. Is this just a iPhone thing or do Android phones on TMO suffer from this as well?? Thanks
LOL! I just renewed my $60 2GB plan yesterday. Bastards! 8O So what about the data overage with the single plan? It wasn't to long ago that the plan already cost $75 and overage was $15/GB. Then VZW dropped the plan to $60 and overage to $10. Is the overage going to go back up?
NFL Mobile Question
I see on VZW with the NFL Mobile app you can watch live games for a monthly fee or if you're on a everything share plan. You can download the app to any smartphone on any other carrier. But my question is can you get the live games?? On my VZW smartphone it will give me a preview of a live game then come up and say to continue it's $5.99/month. On my TMO smartphone the NFL Mobile app just plays highlights, ...
Re: Other Carriers...
I'm wondering as VoLTE rolls out if carriers are going to levy it only working on their network at first to try to get more subscribers? You know, "We offer the best calling quality. But only on OUR network."
VoLTE Between carriers
Will HD calling work between carriers? Or will each carrier's HD calling only work within it's own network? :?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x8jEi-g9hHI You maybe right after all. Confusing...yes.
"CellSpot delivers a full-bars T-Mobile experience" There's also a video that explains/shows this as well.
Think of it as a cell tower repeater using the internet you already have. Your cell strength indicator should go up using this device not your WiFi indicator. Plus it still needs to be plugged into the internet to work. All carriers already offer this type of device.
iPhone 5S unlock question
I have an ATT iPhone 5S that I unlocked, same model number of the Verizon iPhone 5S. But when I go to activate it it says 'No Service' and it won't allow me to activate online either. I'm just swapping my nano SIM from my Droid Maxx to the iPhone 5S, I figured it should work. Thought that was the point of the iPhone 5S being the same across most carriers here in the US.
Re: I didn't think
It was a long time ago. Think when Sprint didn't have MMS yet and was using 'Picture Message'
I didn't think
Sprint even had enough customers or data speeds worth throttling? :o Who knew!?! I gave up on Sprint long ago when I had to turn Wi-Fi off just to receive picture messages.
The 'One-handed operation' mode look like? Saw it there in the video.
Re: Data plans
I saw those as well but still seemed too pricey.
Am I missing something? Why does ATT only offer a 5GB/$50 plan for hotspots and other internet devices? I don't need 5GB and I don't want to pay $50/month. I was looking for something like T-Mobile's 2GB/$30 data plan.
But did you notice...
I've been looking at the Droid Maxx because the full retail was $400. Now it's back up to $600. It's VZW, we're not saving any money. :x
Re: Let's hope this doesn't happen
If they let T-Mobile run it I'm all for it.
Camera after update
Seems to of made my camera worse. Seems quicker, no longer shows what you were taking a picture of when you close running apps. But picture quality in low light or lots of light colors seem to be worse.
