I oppoose the merger...but if it turns inevitable check this out!

I don't want it to happen at all, but if it does & these "concessions" are required of at&t they just may be forced to keep rate plans & such. See link!

Another take on why ATT buyout should be blocked.

AT&T is terrible at managing their network compared to T-Mobile. And the service and support has only really begun improving late last year. It will take quite a lot of time for AT&T to catch up in terms of overall quality to the levels expected by T-Mobile customers. And AT&T will crush T-Mobile’s open culture after the acquisition is complete, in favor of AT&T’s monopolistic conservative culture.

AT&T also doesn’t really get open networks and open solutions. Their Android devices are locked down, with sideloading blocked. They are the only carrier in the world that does that, by the way. AT&T prefers nickel-and-diming customers instead of making them happy enough to continue staying with AT&T, which is

Need help selecting new phone for upgrade

Greetings everyone,

I am up fit my upgrade and am unsure about which handset I want to purchase. I am a but sceptical about the windows phone 7 operating system, but I am not married to android by any means. I am very huge on web browsing, social networking and customization. I went from the sidekick 08, to the G1, to the Cliq Xt(not by choice). Any suggestions, price is not a factor.

With gratitude

And this is why the buy out will succeed.

AT&T said that as part of the purchase it would expand the rollout of its high-speed wireless technology, helping achieve the U.S. Federal Communications Commission goal of making broadband available more widely.

Which it will.

Good to see...

...T-Mobile still running the business as though there is no merger in the works. The Iphone commercials are still fun and they are still rolling out '4G'. Hopefully the merger will be nixed and they will cash that three billion dollar check from AT&T AND gain the benefits of that sweet roaming agreement.

Is T-Mobile playing some kind of April Fool's joke?

So last night I'm doing my thing, downloading some music on my PC via my phone's data connection, which I've done for well over a year now, not that I do it very often, just sometimes there are things I can do by 'tethering' on my PC that I can't do on my phone due to it's limitations (ie. cannot upload photos via the phones' browser).

So with only 20 seconds on one of my downloads left to go, and it freezes up..

I restart my browser, and I get a message that says I need to pay another $14.99 on my bill if I want to tether!

I'm ok with them if they 'throttle' me down if I download too much, as it's only like once a week or two I actually do tether, most of the time I download thru my phone, but a flat $15 I think is a bit steep if I...

Angry T-Mobile customer looking for advice/resolution

Evil or Very Mad

As a former employee of t-mobile I know a lot of employees frequent this forum so I am looking for insight or input. I have a unique situation that t-mobile does not seem to want to resolve.


I purchased a blackberry phone for the first time several years ago, the blackberry 8220. When I purchased the phone I added the data, which I was told and it did...support tethering...I used it and was very pleased with the service and convenience of using my blackberry as a modem.

My phone like everything else wore out over time so I went in to get a new phone (June 2010)...when I arrived at the store I told the rep I needed a new phone and we went over the options. At this time I wanted a windows based phone but was told it...

My T-MOBILE JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What I want to know is this AT&T buyout of T-Mobile going to effect my job. I work in the Web and Telesales support department. Yes the ones you get when you call to check on your order, get a credit for shipping, or to exchange your new phone for a different one. Wink

Is AT&T going to get rid of our T-Mobile service reps and just keep their own? Paranoid yeah, I'm worried sick, I need my job bad. I also have a T-Mobile dealer plan. It's an awesome deal that T-Mobile gives to it's employees. Is AT&T going to honor it? I have not heard good things of AT&T and I'm not happy about that change.
Go AWAY AT&T!!! GO AWAY!!!! Crying or Very sad

What does it take?!

...to get someone to check a tower in your area? For the past 5 months the 3g coverage in my area has been horrible. Even at work I have problems with holding a 3g signal. I have checked the coverage map and according to the map I have good coverage. It hasn't even been a year yet and I will be on my 5th replacement device...this is ridiculous. Im fed up and ready to port my number back to Verizon. The only reason I left is because Verizon is so darn expensive. Rolling Eyes

advice on older phones

My wife is switching from Verizon to my T-mobile account so we can share minutes. She wants an old-technology phone since she only uses her cell phone for voice calls. She requires a small phone -- under 3.5oz and less than 0.6" thick. She likes the thin clamshell designs, but would consider a bar phone.

Using the awesome search engine on this site, I came up with a short list:

Nokia 5130
Nokia 5310
Nokia 6300
Samsung T519
Ericsson Equinox
Moto RAZR V3

As usual, the reviews are mixed, but I can ignore issues related to texting, internet, music, camera, speakerphone, etc. Reception is important. Less so battery life. Any thoughts?
