"tweet" vs "text"

Recommended Posts

 

 

It's been interesting to watch the google voice app evolve. it used to stink at pushing txts through, then problems sending...

 

Now it has a very nice "queued" "sending" "not sent" "retrying" "sent" progress report. It's extremely rare that a text can't send - just might take a minute, but you can continue texting and they'll eventually make it through.

 

It doesn't happen often, but in a loaded area, it might take a minute for them to work through.

 

Given all of the problems people have with Sprint's text messaging, I am not sure one is necessarily better than the other - both have their ups and downs.

 

The biggest win for me is streaming live radio and texting. If I text over sprint, it drops me down to 1x and because I have an active data session, it won't revert back to EVDO. I prefer to keep my EVDO :)

I might have to start using Google voice to text because texting through sprints network is terrible since there are huge delays at times. do u get many delays receiving texts through Google voice?

My cousin Becky was at the Super Bowl. She has an iPhone 5 on AT&T's LTE. Shockingly, she was able to use data and text in the Superdome, even when the lights were out of the building and data load was at its highest point. By all indications, both AT&T and Verizon held up there. I know nothing about how Sprint and T-Mobile did.

Now that I have iMessage, I rarely send text messages anymore. If something goes wrong with data in my area then I will switch iMessage off, but for now, my data service works good enough for me.

Big happy iFamily? If you text an android user does it still go through with imessage?

 

I don't know anyone with an iPhone anymore so I am kind of ignorant when it comes to that device.

No. It goes as a regular text message. Out of the people I text message on a regular basis, only my mom uses an android phone.

No, it works well. I also have Google voice go to my email so I'll get both an email and text.

 

It's nice to be able to reply to texts via email while I'm at the computer.

      I have the $100 for two lines Family Unlimited Data Plan with add-on lines at $40.
       
      Would there be any "fine-print" drawbacks?
       
      Like, loss of Unlimited for Life Guarantee?
      Less off-network roaming data allotment from the usual 300+Mb of data?
      Lower priority on the network? I know that bucket data plans have the highest post-paid priority.
       
      What will I miss out on? Because I can NOT fathom that Sprint will be losing money by giving you 3GB of hotspot data AND lose more money than my current plan.

      I'm sure everyone remembers the free night and weekend minutes we had years ago. This morning I was thinking what if a carrier took that same idea but instead made for it data. I think that if a carrier was able to implement this that it would be big and a game changer. What do you guys think?

      With the introduction of the new plans Sprint has announced. I told one of my friends about the $60 unlimited plan and she was shocked yet happy about it. She currently has T-Mobile and there has been times where my Sprint service has out performed her service even in the city with puling up information and out of town...well... you already know how that went. She was talking about switching and stuff but then she sent me a typical article bashing Sprint and I got irritated by it and I had to explain to her that Sprint is not bad at all. These articles are based on past experiences from 3+ years ago. I told her I'm pulling 60+ mbps on LTE but she's worried about Sprint being slow ( because of what she read). Guys give me some advice on persuading her to give Sprint a chance. 
       
      I feel like articles that are being posted is what keeps away customers.  It makes no sense that T-Mobiles 2g network is not spoken about when they are in the news for changes to plans and such. But good ol Sprint makes changes and articles that get posted rips Sprint apart for filth.
