I'm REALLY frustrated trying to figure out how to become a premiere sponsor. I assume this means a certain dollar amount of donation... I already donated a couple times for the 'basic' sponsorship, but would LOVE to be a premiere sponsor...yet I can't find anything on how much I need to donate to do it. Having to jump through such hoops to donate money makes it really easy for me to just want to give up and move on to something else.
I'm sure the info is here somewhere, but a search of the forums turned up nothing, and I can't seem to find an email address to contact the admins to send a question, which would also be useful.
This seems to me to be a HUGE hole and likely throwing away a lot of money by not making this information easily accessible. You'd get a lot more donating members if you maybe put a couple notes below the donation button so people have an idea of what they need to donate to get to x access level, or a link to a page that says if you donate this you get this.
With that suggestion in place.... what's the answer? :-)
I'm still on the fence about updating my 5S to iOS11... I really like 10.3.3 on it and by far my favorite thus far since I got it early last year.
I don't know? Should I download now or wait? Is iOS11 really worth it?
For me...I believe unlimited and prices are the most at risk for a merger. They will likely make promises to regulators not to scrap unlimited or raise price for one year. They won't offer it initially when presenting for approval. But it will be one of the things they offer early to help anti-trust issues. And if they get desperate, they'll offer more than a year.
I don't think prices will double overnight, or anything. But Tmo cancelled unlimited before. And it was only Sprint who held firm. Not that Sprint is some holy protector of unlimited. They did it only to differentiate and try to compete. In a Triopoly world, if the new Tmo drops unlimited again, AT&T and VZW would follow suit quickly. They can't wait to go back. It will only be a mere Legere business decision to end unlimited in the USA. Maybe forever.
I personally don't use much data anymore. It's not a big deal to me, all things considered. I like unlimited data because I hate constantly keeping track, and having to constantly meter my behavior over a remaining period. I hate that.
Totally agree Red Dog! Absolutely. In many ways I feel that T-Mobile is showing Sprint that "you need to get off your *** and fix your network or you are going to get crushed." (if not by us, then by AT&T or Verizon)... If you want to be a legit contender for a merger... get moving! I think they are. Masa has wanted it since the beginning... don't know what happened so quickly to make them act? It's just good to see. T Mobile is tearing it up and not sitting on it's heals. They are already getting 600 MHz put in areas they can turn it on now... They are actually ahead of phone release!
As far as prices and those concerned... I get the sense from some, that this whole thought of merging is just out of control like a spirit of doom. Bills will rise unfairly... etc... it may not be said verbatim... but the feeling is there. What I'm trying to say to those, is: don't panic... I think the possibilities are endless, with all that spectrum and the determination to use it. Did I say... The DETERMINATION to use it... The capital to use it...
I think the combination with it's Spectrum and depth... will be a game changer. I think "T-Mobint" will still be the disruptor. I don't see them backing down in the fight with the big two.... I still see unlimited in the cards... Time will tell.
