Anyone get a survey call?

so i got a call from so called "t-mobile" to do a short survey and if i did it i would credit a $20 for doing so....

once it was finished... it was weird cuz they were saying they would get someone to help... but then hung up... so i called the number back... and it led me to a different automated so-called "tmobile menu"... which normally the real one doesn't do what they did... (i know sounds confusing) it just made me mad. I'm just rambling right now.

so, short story is! if anyone gets this call.... don't do it!!!!!! it's not real. just saying.... 😳

Lg Optimus L9* Gallery Storage deletion

I had ran out of space on my phone and it wouldn't allow me to take pictures,allow incoming or outgoing texts all day! I was fine with that, knowing I can free a little space by deleting old call logs and texts. It worked for a little but an hour later I noticed my whole gallery of pictures were deleted! I had aproximately 520 pictures all from the last two years of my nieces and nephews that nobody else could replace. Im heartbroken that this happened a day before I went to get a thumb drive to save to the computer or a memory card with more space....

Has anyone had this happen before, that could help with suggestions?

Is there any possible way to recover these photos?

Why did it happen?

I just lost 5 precious children's, only...

One Plus on T-Mobile network

I read that the One Plus will only work on AT&T and T-Mobile networks. Can anyone confirm this? Is there a slot for a sim card?

Using ATT phone on T-Mobile

I got a deal I couldn't pass up on an ATT iPhone 5c but I have T-Mobile service. Att will carrier unlock the phone if I was the original owner, but obviously I'm not. What are my options for getting it to work with T-Mobile? Is it possible to have a friend with current ATT service put their Sim in the phone and request an ATT carrier unlock acting as the phone owner?

Samsung Galaxy S5

Does anyone know if TMO is getting both the 16G and 32G versions? Also, how about the various colors other than the black and white?

Phone Price Structure

What does everyone think of the new phone price structure? Basically, paying full price for the phone, but over the course of 24 months. We can no longer get a discount phone because TMO has done away with contracts.

I understand we pay a down-payment, then pay every months for 24 months, but I have never ever paid full price for a phone.

Does this apply to loyalty customers that have been with TMO for 14 years?

Unlocking Phones

Does anyone know of reliable sources for unlocking phones? I know that its easy for nokias (unlock.nokiafree.org) but does anyone know of a reliable source for motorolas and samsungs. Any sites at all, free or charge.

Basically, I dont need this to make any money or anything. my girlfriend just got purse-napped on a trip to LA and she lost her phone. i have a few samsungs and motos that i want to get her service set up on, but they're for other providers. any help at all would be deeply appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Thinks of Switching to Tmo from Sprint In Denver

HI All,

New here.
I was wondering what the TMO service is like in Denver and the Southern and Western suburbs.
Also if anyone knows what the service is like between Denver and Glenwood Springs.
I have Sprint now, and I am in an area where we have their 4g LTE. Problem is now we have LTE, but we drop calls like crazy.
Thanks in Advance for you suggestions

Omnipoint, Voicestream,T-Mobile

Very limited network outside of major towns and metro areas like Sprint. Use a detailed coverage map to make sure you have service wherever you go.

If anyone has the Note 3, they might be interested in this. . .

It's a protective case, and has a whopping 10,000mah battery, all the bases are covered in this case, and it isn't as much as you might think.

T-Mobile Issues

My parents have a plan with T-Mobile where they got trapped into an additional two year contract just because they changed the number of minutes in their plan. In the previous plan they were out of contract, month to month.

Since we were moving we changed out minutes and just because of that we got trapped in a new two year contract. Now, the signal that we have is so bad that it is impossible to use any of our phones. It seems like, no matter where we go the signal sucks and if we do somehow magically connect it is a really crappy connection and only lasts a little while.

Not only did they put us into a new contract but they didn't inform us that we were being put into a new contract and there was nothing going along with it. We only ...

Sim unlock ?

I'm thinking of going on vacation in a couple of months, and i wanted to use a pre paid sim card. But when I talked to T-mo they said the phone needs to be paid off before they can unlock the sim. I know there is sites out there that will do it, but I really don't wanna pay 30$ for them to do it. is there anyway i can get it unlocked for free ?

thanks for the advcie 🙂

Say it ain't so.

I have my new Galaxy Note 3. I have full bars of coverage on TMobile's 4G network and I'm sitting here trying to watch some Netflix and it won't stream due to the network being too slow. So I download a speedtest app and I am getting .83 down and 1.46 up.

Am I missing something here? I switched from Sprint and was expecting a better experience than this.

cell phone newbie

I've just gotten an Alcatel Fierce and need to know where to go to learn how to use it! My learning style requires hands on instruction vs reading a manual and being able to do it.

Q3 1 Million Adds!

This is awesome. If they can keep the momentum into the typically good 4th quarter T-Mobile becomes a real contender in wireless.

Give the people what they want and apparently they will come to you.

T-Mobile Coverage in Charlotte, NC - 28277

Hi everybody,

I just wanted to find out how many of you guys use T-Mobile in Charlotte North Carolina (South Charlotte, Piper Glen area), near the Stone Crest shopping center?

I wanted to gauge your network speeds on 4G LTE using the SpeedTest.net app or something similar. I want to get an idea, if this carrier serves me at my apartment complex (Piper Station), whereas Sprint's 4G only delivers 0.5-1Mbps in my apartment, on my GN2. I am constantly having to rely on TWC's in home WiFi for a decent connection.

I am itching to pull the trigger, and get the new GN3. Please post your screenshots, as I would love to hear from you, and any experiences you have had with the carrier.

Thanks a million,
”‹JE 😁
