T-Mobile Has Had Wi-Fi Calling Since at Least 2007...

in the Article: AT&T iPhone Owners Can Now Use WiFi Calling forum

The article is a bit off. T-Mobile has had Wi-Fi calling on phones such as the Samsung Samsung SGH-T409 flip phone since at least 2007. at&t thinks they are so smart. I think if the FCC had a problem with T-Mobile offering Wi-Fi calling they would have done something about it in the last ~8 years!!! Once T-Mobile get 600 MHz spectrum at&t is going to have a hard time keeping customers unless they change their evil ways...

at&t Canada/Mexico Roaming???

in the Article: Cricket Adds Calling and Messaging From Canada and Mexico forum

"Cricket's move follows similar calling plan changes made by parent company AT&T, as well as competitors T-Mobile and MetroPCS"... When did at&t announce they are now offering free roaming in Canada and Mexico? I called and talked to an at&t CSR and all they could tell me about is the standard PassPort option, with it's absolutely ridiculous $1.00/minute voice calls... Also it appears the Cricket plan does not offer any data roaming in Canada and Mexico. I travel to Canada quite frequently for ...

Yes, it certainly is a very feeble offering. I can't believe Sprint would even offer something like this with so few countries. I'm sure John Legere with T-Mobile will have a field day with this one :D :D :D

No Canada???

Why would they not include Canada? Standard CDMA even, no GSM/UMTS needed... I hope this move by Sprint though will force at&t's hand to offer something similar...

What do you mean by activate? If you have a T-Mobile unlocked phone and put an at&t SIM in it, the phone will just start working. No activation needed...

How About T-Mobile Adding More DOMESTIC Roaming Data...!

in the Article: T-Mobile Re-arranges Data Caps on Simple Choice Plans, Adds International Texting forum

I recently switched from at&t (after being with at&t for 10+ years) to T-Mobile. On a trip to Northern Wisconsin last week I was roaming on at&t. Most of the at&t towers in Northeast Wisconsin have been upgraded to HSPA+ 42.2 Mbsp "4G". I am using an unlocked rooted Samsung Rugby Pro (at&t branded). I set my Rugby Pro to search only WCDMA (with *#2263#) and the phone connected to at&t's HSPA+ 42.2 Mbsp "4G" network (confirmed with Network Signal Info ...

1900 3G UMTS is LIVE in Chicagoland as well...

in the Article: T-Mobile Activates 1900MHz HSPA+ in 3 More Markets forum

Performed a network search on my 3G UMTS 850/1900/2100 handset the other day in Chicagoland and I now get at&t AND T-Mobile, so 1900 3G UMTS is live here as well. T-Mobile also still scans in on 2G GSM. I know in some markets T-Mobile has limited spectrum. Are they going to have enough 1900 spectrum to run both 2G GSM and 3G UMTS reliably? Hman

in the Article: Verizon's iPhone 5 to Remain Unlocked for GSM Networks forum

I went to a Verizon Wireless corporate store last week to buy a Motorola DROID RAZR M without a contract. I told them I was planning on putting my at&t SIM in the phone and using it with my at&t service. They WOULD NOT sell me the phone for full retail price $549.99. They said they cannot sell phones without service.

When T-Mobile launches LTE in their 1700/2100 AWS spectrum the GSM model A1428 should work on LTE. GSM model A1428 LTE (Bands 4 and 17) IV (4) AWS, "1.7/2.1 GHz" Canada, Latin America, US (AT&T, T-Mobile) XVII (17) Lower SMH blocks B/C (700 MHz) US (AT&T) In the mean time it will be 3G UMTS 1900 as they upgrade their 1900 network around the country.

Upgrade fee? at&t is GSM...

in the Article: AT&T Confirms Device Upgrade Fee Rising to $36 forum

I have "upgraded" my handset several times over the years by simply taking out the SIM card in my old handset and placing it in a new handset. I have NEVER been charged an $18 or $36 fee. When exactly is this fee charged? I can see carriers who do not use GSM charging a fee because you actually have to call/go online to upgrade or change handsets. With GSM the subscriber has all the control.
