Which Cell Phone carrier do you use?

Just curious if anyone has thought of taking advantage of T-Mobiles newly announced Uncarrier 4.0.

I use VZW.

 

I do caution ANYONE looking to jump on this deal (or any deal for that matter) to read the fine print.

 

Remember, all of these carriers are FOR-PROFIT companies and people make a LOT of money to make sure they remain profitable.

 

Look at how they will make sure they remain profitable, by attracting you to their service with this "gimmick".

 

I've sadly had ALL carriers, and IMO - you do get what you pay for.

Agreed!

 

However, I'm always interested and enthused when it comes to potentially paying less for a similar service.  In my view, bandwidth in a large Metropolitan area such as mine, and has become a commodotized product.

 

I'm always looking to cut costs.

I switched from AT&T to AIO Wireless and I'm saving a fortune. It's the exact same cell phone towers and network with unlimited data and minutes for half of the price. Brought my old iPhone over.

I am on T-Mobile, no contract, just paid half of my phone installment down. Unlimited calls/messaging and 2GB's data for $70 including tax.

2 lines?

AT&T. Mainly because I get a discount for working at & being a student of my university.

 

Moving to T-Mobile would be too much of a hassle right now. We'll see how they are when my contract is up.

Re: Which Cell Phone carrier do you use?

Basically, here's how it works.

 

1)  If you switch, T-Mobile will pay for your ETFs up to $350 per line for up to 5 lines.

2)  You *must* trade in your existing smart phone, and buy one of theirs.

3)  Chose one of their plans (best pricing I've ever seen), which has no contract.

 

To receive the ETFs, you must submit a final bill with the amount, and they'll send a MC Prepaid card for the entire amount.  For areas with excellent coverage and service, I'd say this is a compelling proposition.

 

For me, I'm going to look into switching.

Re: Which Cell Phone carrier do you use?

I switched from T-Mobile to Sprint.. was tired of their crap and the really bad service. Had T-mobile from 2008-2013.. I breached my contract and switched to Sprint.. they give me employee discount on my bill (cause my job is enrolled) and I got the iPhone 4s for free for switching carriers and I got to keep my phone number. So in all I paid about $50 for taxes, screen protector and phone case. Smiley Happy My bill is about $5 less than I had with T-Mobile.
