  1. Regardless of ones view on this topic I think it's safe to say most "reporting" on this topic has just been horrible with a lot of it just thinly veiled advocacy. The Verge being one of the worst offenders. Hit pieces that seem designed to radicalize readers. Looking at some of the comments there are just scary. Personally I've never cared about this subject. It's always been a solution in search of a problem in my view.
  2. 0% interest for 24 months is still a subsidy. If you charged interest or if carriers offered no financing at all then you would see some change.

    Well I wouldn't say a small subset. While the average user has no idea what VoLTE is that doesn't mean they've never used it. My wife will often send me pictures while we are talking on the phone. When I was on Sprint I was never able to see them until I hung up. This scenario happens much more than you think. If someone comes to Sprint from one of the other carriers they will most likely be annoyed by it. If you've been on Sprint for years you've never really known it so you don't think it's a big deal.

    Yeah. Outside is fine. It's the indoor coverage where you get the no service. In my experience Band 12 is totally overhyped too.

    It's nice when it all works out of the box. Now if T-Mobile could just add a few more sites in Central Jersey. Too often I see No Service on my phone when I'm in building. Never saw that with Sprint though their weak signal was about the same as having no service.

    No idea iff it supports 3CA. Doubt it but you never know. A friend of mine picked one up at Costco the other week and she loves it. Not bad for $219.

    They advertise it as suitable for all four carriers so I'd assume so. The new Nokia seems just as dumb as the old Nokia. Make a bunch of handsets tailored to certain carriers. Makes no sense especially when you have no carrier support. Moto is doing it the right way.
  8. I just got an email about this service. You can get an unlimited line for $45/mo if you sign up before the end of July. That's a really good deal considering you're on the Verizon network for the most part.
  9. That's if you have a higher end plan which I haven't seen defined yet. Otherwise it's $65 which is still a good deal for basically unlimited data on the Verizon network.

    Sprint. Switching

    How long have you been gone? When I ported out the other week they sent me an email offering $300 in service credit if I switched back.
  11. That's what I've been saying. There is no proration on the final bill. If you cancel a day after the cycle begins you will pay for the entire month since they bill in advance. I thought about calling CS again but it's just not worth it. It's their policy and is in the TOS most likely.
  12. Well they say this is the final bill and that it's for an entire month even though I was only a customer for three days. That's what she wrote. I don't care anymore. I'll just pay the damn thing. It was excruciating talking to this person.
  13. This is what they told me "Thank you for taking my call. Once you're cancel within the billing cycle , it's require that you still pay for the entire month of service. Apologize for the inconvenience. Sorry that you're no longer with us, you're welcome to join us back anytime you chooses. Thank you for your service with us in the pass. Sprint Cares. AC" That sounds like I am paying forward a month. My cycle ended on March 7th. I ported out on March 10th. This is my final bill. They aren't comping me three days of service.
  14. I know I am post paid but I think they bill a month in advance for the monthly recurring charges. Anyway, I just got off the phone with one of their dumber reps and they told me that since I cancelled after my billing cycle ended I will have to pay for an entire month of service despite being only three days into it. Nice.
  15. So every time I log in I have to do this? That's ridiculous. Maybe someone here can help me therefore saving me the agony of calling in. I ported out on March 10th. My Sprint billing cycle ended on March 7th and I received a bill in the normal monthly amount. I assume Sprint bills forward? If so am I expected to pay the full monthly rate for three days of service?
