  2. I like how the article was supposed to be about Sprint, but then it completely turned into an ad for T-mobile.

    It's not really an ad, they're just spreading the word, facts. if more people know about the fact, they wouldn't be stiffed by likes of ATT. I switched out of that crap ATT and to Tmobile and saved over $20 a month and got more data quota out of my plan, and my wife is also able to get an iphone.

    That's because next to the competition T-mobile looks almost too good to be true and we're all secretly hoping they're not going to come out and say they're losing their shirt on all these great plans and they have to put an end to them. T-mo's only real downside is their coverage map, which depending on where you live, may not even affect you.

    When they say your rate is good 'For Life' is that the life of the customer or the life of Sprint? Because a quick stop over at yahoo finance shows they lose around 3-4 billion each year. We may be around longer than they are.

    Same with Dodge/Chrysler. before they went bankrupt, dodge and Chrysler started offering life time powertrain warranties on majority of their vehicles.

    All Cellphone Companies need to drop their prices and give us limited data plans. I really don't use my smartphone for data once I cross the line I hit with extra fees. I had to use the Hotpot feature when we had a very long brown out that worked! Some told me it cost $30 a month extra for using the cell phone that way. But I wasn't charge anything more.
  8. Why lock yourself in to paying a large amount for calls and text when all you really need is data?
    Maybe it's not fully here yet but voice and text over IP is coming fast and the mobile/cell operators are scared.
