Don't respond to Emails, phone calls, or web pages which tell you to call
an "809" area Phone Number.

This is a very important issue of Scam Busters because it alerts you to a
scam that is spreading *extremely* quickly, can easily cost you $2400 or
more, and is difficult to avoid unless you are aware of it.

We'd like to thank Verizon for bringing this scam to our attention.

This scam has also been identified by the National Fraud Information
Center and is costing victims a lots of money.

There are lot of different permutations of this scam.


You will receive a message on your answering machine or your pager, which
asks you to call a number beginning with area cod...

T-Mobile Easy Speak Questions

Hello everyone,

I am getting ready to drop my Sprint PCS service and go with prepaid simply because I don't use my phone as much as I used to, and I want a reliable network. I have been researching prepaid options like Tracfone and Verizon, and was wondering if T-Mobile would be a good option to use.

How is T-Mobile's coverage (I live in northern Indiana)? How is their customer service? Are the rates comparable to the other prepaid carriers out there?

Does anyone know how t-mobile data (speeds, content, structure) compares to AT&T Wireless?

Does anyone know how t-mobile data (speeds, content, structure) compares to AT&T Wireless? There 19.99 unlimited Internet plan looks great. AT&T charges like $79.99 for an unlimited data plan. From what I've heard and those price difference it sure seems like tmobile data is inferior.

T mobile has t-zones and t mobile internet and AT&T has mmode and AT&T wireless internet. Mmode is really the same as the Internet just bundled in smaller packages. What about t-zones vs. t mobile internet.

What I want to do is link a bluetooth t-mobile phone up to my bluetooth palm pda and be able to access html sites. I can do this with my current AT&T wireless bluetooth phone and html sites. I am doing this with mMode but could also do it with AT&T wi...

Will T-mobile 1000 anytime + n/w for 39.99 come back

do anyone thinks t-mobile will come back with the 1000 anytime plus nights and weekends again. I have tried some other carrier but I have t-mobile 1000 n/w for my daughter and verizon 700 for myself that cost more than my daughter. I want to switch the second line but I'm hopping t-mobile will bring back that 1000 + n/w for 39.99 again.

TMobile International Support Phones

I have the Samsung E715 phone. I notice on the TMobile site (http://www.t-mobile.com/products/worldclass. asp) that it isn't listed as one of the international phones, even though it is. Is this an oversite or can I not use this phone overseas?

Also, I notice the phone page says I can download games, yet when I've tried I'm told that my phone doesn't support it. Are there no games available for this phone or does it in fact not support it?

ATTWS is offering EDGE, Verizon is offering 1xEV-DO, Sprint is offering cdma2000. So what's TM's plan for higher data rates on their cellular net? GPRS is fine for Blackberry type stuff but on a laptop no way. Just back from Europe where colleagues had EGDE cards in their Laptops and it rocks!

Keeping number with new phone.

I have found a deal on the Motorola's v300 at cellularchoices.net where I can sign up for the T-Mobile family plan and get 3 of the v300 phones for free after rebates. They say that since I am currently with T-Mobile, (out of contract), that the only way to keep my currant numbers (2) would be to wait until I have the new service and contact T-Mobile to have the numbers switched. Then terminate the old service. Can anyone tell me if this is correct, or will I not be able to keep the numbers by going thru cellularchoices.net. Thanks

I have T-Zone service, after using the service for sometime it seems to me that it provides less information than when compared to say Att's Mmode. Just to use an example, with Mmode you get to view a weather radar, not so at T-Zones. Why? πŸ™„

Service quality in Williamsburg and Hampton Road, VA

Hi, I'm wondering about the service quality in these areas of VA cause it is my hometown area. I will most likely get my service in my collegetown, which is which well-covered by t-mobile and all the other carriers. But when I look at the SE VA map, it looks somewhat empty outside of the major highways. Any help would be greatly appreciated
Thanks 😁
