    You're assuming I was calling him a clown because of the policy... :)

    Having said that, anytime the price in the store doesn't match the online price is a stupid policy, because it disincentivizes...
  2. Can't you log in with your phone number rather...

    Can't you log in with your phone number rather than an email address? It may ask you to confirm with a code sent to you via SMS, then you should be fine.

    Although I have an email T-Mobile ID, I...

    I need to thank folks like smsgator, LTEAdvanced, et al, because after 17 years of using T-Mobile, I apparently didn't know what a substandard service I've been using for nearly two decades. That...

    Grandfathered Plans and DIGITS...

    I stupidly switched from my "you'll have to rip it out if my cold, dead hands" grandfathered plan to a newer one a few months ago, but T-Mo could never get the promised discounts to work and after...
  5. A clown in my local store tried to charge me $25...

    A clown in my local store tried to charge me $25 (the current postpaid SIM price.)

    When I pointed out this was for prepaid, he said "we charge $25 for all SIMs, it's how we keep the lights on..."...

    It's this. I predominantly use non-T-Mo phones and run into this issue on T-Mo quite a bit. I opened a bunch of trouble tickets with T-Mo support over several months late last year and T-Mo confirmed...
  7. Again, I never said any of those *would* happen-...

    Again, I never said any of those *would* happen- they're just thought experiments to separate the folks that are actually in favor of the merger because they actually believe it's good for...
  8. I was waiting for a form of this comment to come...

    I was waiting for a form of this comment to come around, because this exact same point was made about both 3G and 4G. And while perfectly true (about efficiency, I mean), it had nothing to do with...

    I think Sprint may have said something similar about WiMax... :)


    T-Mo did not lead with their 3G or LTE deployments, and managed to do alright.

    There's an old politically incorrect saying in...
  10. It's selfish to expect better service at a lower...

    It's selfish to expect better service at a lower rate than others pay for the same service.

    I'd love to know how excited everyone here would be about the merger and 5G if T-Mo suddenly announced...
  11. Um, here's a monkey wrench to twist your "simple...

    Um, here's a monkey wrench to twist your "simple facts"...

    I'm a current T-Mo customer of 16 years wishing to keep them separate from Sprint because I believe number 2 (or in this case, 3 & 4)...
  12. Maybe, but why do they have to compete on an...

    Maybe, but why do they have to compete on an identical level? I can't afford to eat at Ruth's Chris or Morton's every night, so I'm thankful the world also has McDonald's and Burger Kings to choose...
  13. Thanks for the info. It seems like it's worth the...

    Thanks for the info. It seems like it's worth the $17 risk to get a "real" Verizon sanctioned unlock now that the $2 eBay unlocks have disappeared, replaced by those sketchy USB-over-Teamviewer...
  14. So, what's the scam with the cheap discount 1st month eBay VZW Prepaid plans?

    A lot of eBay sellers are offering really cheap "1st month only" Verizon Prepaid plans. For example, the $50 7GB plan for $15-20, like this auction here:...

    While anyone here is, of course, free to file a complaint, no one at the FCC will give a rat's hindquarters if you do or not. The public complaint period is simply a statutory requirement that has...
  16. Fair enough. So the reason you support the merger...

    Fair enough. So the reason you support the merger has nothing to do with competition, but is simply because you might get better service with your grandfathered plan.

    Thanks for making that clear!...
  17. That's not quite true. You're making it sound...

    That's not quite true. You're making it sound like iWireless one day decided to shut the doors and T-Mo swooped in to bail their customers out. T-Mo bought iWireless for their spectrum and network...
  18. Red Pocket, TracFone, et al are on the same thin...

    Red Pocket, TracFone, et al are on the same thin ice as Cricket and Metro. Even more so, since they don't own any networks, like Cricket and Metro's owners do.

    If the rising price tide raises all...
  19. No, Sprint isn't causing a mass migration, but...

    No, Sprint isn't causing a mass migration, but they've set the cost of lower tier service, which the Crickets and Metros try to compete with. So, while AT&T isn't strategically planning their...
  20. I don't mean T-Sprint will have coverage parity...

    I don't mean T-Sprint will have coverage parity by then, I mean that's the requisite time until their Unicorn and Rainbows promises to the Feds are forgotten and they can slowly and safely raise...
  21. Yeah, I'm not suggesting TMT is a reason to...

    Yeah, I'm not suggesting TMT is a reason to switch carriers, or a reason not to leave if you're unhappy, but it is part of the value equation. I have six elligible lines, so I figure even in a "bad"...
  22. It's not about the number of competitors, but...

    It's not about the number of competitors, but about their relative sizes. None of the prepaid carriers/MVNOs own their own networks, but rely on wholesaling the service of the big 4 carriers (well,...
  23. Yeah, I don't get all of the complaining. Free...

    Yeah, I don't get all of the complaining. Free stuff is free stuff. If you can't use it, pass it on to someone who can.

    Sure, some weeks are better than others, but you've got to have a pretty...

    Yeah, I've got a buddy in iWireless territory that's none too happy about his options under the new Magenta regime since he's on a cheap iWireless plan with unthrottled video and tethering.

    For...

    Yep. It'll make for an easy transition from Cricket to AT&T Prepaid when AT&T shutters the Cricket service a year after the T-Mo/Sprint merger finalizes...
