I surely welcome new plan options, when I got my Nexus 5 a month ago they moved me to the Framily plan which saved me $5 a month, if I can get $25 for unlimited voice/text and another $35 for unlimited data I would be sold.

I'm sure these new plans will require easy pay. Hopefully it includes both 2 yr and easy pay

as an Apple fan boy, just like a new product announcement for Apple.  

 

I assume the new plans will leave us — saying hmm I expected more.

Would be interesting to see if the $50 plan comes true.

Yeah, 2 year is important to me too.

Same because most flagship devices are close to $30 a month

I don't see how they can do subsidized for $50 per month.  $30 device subsidy built in, only getting $20 per month per subscriber.  I just can't see that happening.  If anything, I expect them to delink the device and the service.  

 

Although I don't know what to expect in the next plan, and I do expect it to be aggressive, I just can't fathom them essentially giving away flagship devices.  Because that's what they'd be doing if they lower subsidized plans to the same price or lower as everyone else's unsubsidized plans.  I expect a really cheap price with an introductory data tier, and a la carte add ons for extra data allotments, unlimited and a device subsidy/financing.  

 

A cheaper, easier to understand Framily, without having to be linked to members.

I think 2 year plans should be gone. I love the framily/easy pay concept, cheaper monthly rates, and you aren't "stuck" for 2 years.

Sprints whole claim was with band 41 and CA they could keep up with future data demands and keep everyone happy.

 

So, throw slightly cheaper plans with more data. Tablets and hotspots shouldn't have access fees if you have phone service.

You're still stuck. You either fulfill the contract of your plan or easy pay agreement. If you don't you either pay the remaining balance of your phone or termination fee.

 

It's the same thing

Yeah but gives you some freedom to pay it off in a couple months if you want, or just go the whole 2 years. Once you pay it off you get the cheaper rates. I think have subsidized and unsubsidized plans on the same carrier creates confusion to consumers.

I wonder where that leak came from there's nothing going to the retail stores except that we have mandatory training Monday night.

It may not be the next batch of plans that are announced, but 2 year contracts and subsidized phones are on the way out. The writing is on the wall. Look at every carrier. The sooner we decouple devices from service the better. The average consumers perception of what smartphones cost is completely off.

Or... If you own or bring your own device, that should be OK too.

$50 is good for one, but I hope that the plans get cheaper the more people/devices you have on your plan. I'm paying $95 for two people on TMO and over $70 for one on Sprint. I don't foresee easy pay prices included in this plan.

For unsubsidized plans, they have to be $50 or less to save the consumer any money if you're paying $30 for the device, + $50 for the service, thats is equal to the ~$80 you were paying for a subsidized phone every 2 years.

 

If you're on a subsidized plan (~$80) *and* using easy pay or whatever, then you are paying double for the phone.

Verizon is doing unlimited talk/text, 2GB of data, and a subsidy for $60. (http://www.verizonwireless.com/wcms/consumer/shop/shop-data-plans/single-line-data-plans.html)

 

And, Sprint obviously has to be cheaper than Verizon...so $50 subsidized isn't the least bit farfetched.

You can't compare a $60 2GB plan with a $50 unlimited plan.

I sure would like some flexibility in price/data allotment on hotspots & tethering.

 

I'll never use 3gb/mo on my hotspot, but that's the floor @ $34.99.

a ) Where did I say unlimited data at that $50?

b ) You can't compare Verizon's network to Sprint's.

c ) "Truly disruptive" pricing is going to actually require Sprint to be aggressive.

a ) The recent discussion in this thread is about a $50 unlimited plan. I assumed you were participating in the current discussion.

b ) I don't recall comparing Verizon's network to Sprint's.

c ) If you don't find a $50 unlimited plan disruptive then I am lost. Not sure who has a better unlimited plan.

    • You obviously didn't see my second screen shot. Also M-MIMO has been great with cell edge performance especially on uploads.
    • But he posted a second screenshot that showed that his upload speeds were consistently around 20Mbps no matter the time of day while his download speeds fluctuated a lot more.
    • Like I said, anecdotal. All of those speeds tests where done in the span of 10 minutes past midnight, in (which is safe to assume) the same location and with extremely great signal strength/LOS. The problem with upload speeds in the 2.5 Ghz band is that the UL speeds dramatically fall off whenever you move away from the tower. Good speeds are possible, but on a few select areas near towers.
    • If your talking the Adjust LT timing Advance, no it's not on. I will give you some samples over the next few days.
    • Do you have the TA correction option enabled under Preferences? What I really need to do is get a decent sample size of B41 TA reports without the correction factor enabled, and record what the app shows and what the correct distance is. That would allow me to calculate what the proper correction value would be. TA is a funny beast on TD-LTE, I have always had a correction factor applied to the raw value.. so with the option enabled it's applying a correction to the correction.. 🤯
