Hi - which phone is the best or most valued to get from T-mobile when adding a new line that does not require data plan requirement?
Basically, which phone has highest resale value without data commitment?
There's very few non smartphones left on t-mobile's site. So you don't have a very big choice. I think antenna flipped something like a gravity txt but that was a few months ago. I don't know of it still has much resale value.
If you order online from T-Mobile, it is possible that a Lumina 710 will not require you to automatically add a data plan to your line. That is because, I believe, Windows phones don't force the inclusion of a data plan when online ordering. I assume you are planning to sell the phone on Ebay when you get it, but don't want to be stuck with a data plan on your line. Also, if the price shown on the site includes a rebate, you would not be able to receive the rebate, since the rebate would require an active data plan on the phone.
I would have to say the Gravity Txt. T-Mobile really seems to be smartphone oriented now, and doesn't seem to care to cater to those who dont want one.
T-Mobile puts a contract on the data feature? You can't just cancel it whenever you switch to a dumbphone?
I usually support government regulation, but It is unfortunate that the government over-regulated and killed the AT&T/ T-Mobile Merger
The best explanation of the pricing nutiness in the industry.
Why Sprint and T-Mo will always suck.
The only way to end the pricing insanity is to eliminate contracts and subsidies.
I want Wifi calling on AT&T.
If you text while driving, you're an idiot. End of story.
But I believe (again if they didn't change policy). If you pay full price or bring your own phone. Than tmobile doesn't require a data plan at all and will block data for u of you request it.
AT&T, however, does do this. If you put your SIM into a smartphone, even for just a few minutes, you will get a data plan automatically added.
