    Yup. And therein lies the problem. It's great if Microsoft wants to play sugar daddy and give out a bunch of hardware, but Microsoft (like Google) has a long history of launching pilot programs and...

    I get "a)", but isn't the "b)" the best kind of person to bet against, assuming your bet *is* based on factual information? :)




    Not sure why that's strange. Copyright makes most American...

    Ordinarily I'd agree, but I was considering the actual specific trip described in the original post.

    For a trip from NY to AZ, the only sketchy segment would probably be the western half of...

    Maybe it's a regional (address) thing. Do you have any Kroger family stores in your neck of the woods? (There's a list here:

    Don't sweat the IMEI checker- the 3A is 100% compatible- my wife is talking on her 3A right now!

    You might just skip the porting questions when setting the account up online, and just port after...

    Nice catch, and thanks! My $10/2GB/month T-Mo tablet plan was down to $7, and I was waiting for a good deal to refill. A $45 card for $39 keeps me going for 5 more months!

    No tax in Colorado,...

    Geez, it's not like they're Lewis and Clark; T-Mo coverage is perfectly adequate on the highway system. And in a true emergency, 911 would work where there's any compatible service, regardless if...

    Anyone else think the OP is really Karmin, and came up with this "test" scheme just to increase page views? :)

    I was about to chime in with the same thing. I lost a phone when I was in Mexico about 15 years ago. Getting a compatible replacement phone was easy if I needed one, but since I didn't have a spare...

    May I ask why?

    And why do you think that wouldn't trickle down to T-Mo and Sprint as well?

    T-Mo prices their service specifically be a better value than the big 2. If VZW and AT&T raised rates,...

    It was a pretty convoluted promotion from the start.

    It wasn't really trying to promote hotspot accounts, as far as I can tell; it was supposedly a way to test out T-Mo service and coverage...

    Geez, the "million" was a joke- an exaggeration based on *your* statement "They were thinking we're going to use these to help get us 7 million new customers this year. And they did..."

    Maybe they would've gotten 8 million new customers this year, but a million decided to try the test drive first before subscribing.

    If a mall restaurant offers free samples in a food court to...

    Agreed. Besides, who other than we nerdy HoFo'ers even care about this stuff? Very few customers (according to T-Mo) ever hit the 50GB limit anyway. Why would T-Mo lift these limits to encourage the...

    Yup. I really don't know what T-Mo was thinking using those crap Coolpad hotspots as test devices. I ordered one for my mom's house before we visited this summer. (She has no cellphone or computer,...

    Well *somebody* is switching. Even with low churn rates of 1%/month that means one out of every eight of a carriers' entire customer base leaves annually.

    And while I agree that prepaid doesn't...

    Yeah, Binge-On is a thing even if your plan doesn't require it. I typically leave it on to minimize buffering (I don't need "1080p video on a 5" screen!)

    I was on $4.99 T-Zones for a long time,...

    I think they compete, but I guess it's how you define a market. Does Taco Bell compete with Chili's? Not directly, perhaps, but if I eat lunch at one, I'm not eating lunch at the other. That's...

    Thanks for explaining to all of us why AT&T and VZW can still attract full priced customers even though they also supply cheaper service though other companies.

    You must enjoy your Verizon service...

    Sure you can. Because the carrier's cost to offer it was probably similar.

    As had been mentioned here many times, the cost to operate a wireless network is fairly fixed once it's operational....

    A combined T-Mo/Sprint is no more a competitive threat than separate T-Mo/Sprint unless the combined company builds out their coverage to big two levels, which costs money. That kind of expense will...

    I'd disagree. Sure, VZW and AT&T offer worse plans at higher prices at full MSRP, but don't forget the level of competition T-Mo and Sprint provide are why the big two compete through subsidiaries...
