Just in! New Phone and Phone Rates



Just got my Iphone4 replaceded and it;s not working aswell as the first one, my calls are being dropped,, my old voice mail code had to be resetted, and I still don't understand why it's only 3g. my cousin is with sprint and when they upgraded to 4g her phone is now 4g also.

 

And can some one tell me why Boost mobile and Cricket,and T-mobile are offering the same plans as AT&T and we pay hundreds of dollars more!!!

 

I asked this question to an AT&T rep and her response was that we pay more because At&T service is world wide, My response was would not that make our services even cheaper, she said" we are paying for the towers".  I have several family member that have gone to these companies and compared their bills and services to mine and it hurts to see that we have the same plans and they pay between $90 and $100 less than me.  AND MY BROTHER IS 4G USING AN LG PHONE WITH METRO!!!!!

 

Someone help me with this, please.

The iPhone 4 is not a 4G device. No matter what happens, you'll never see 4G on the iPhone 4.

1) iPhone 3GS/i4 are 3G regular 7.2 MBPS. iPhone 3G is 4.6 MBPS.

2) iPhone 4S is HSPA+ (4G beta edition) 14.4 MBPS.

 

The "4G" phones out at the moment are version HSPA+ (4G beta edition).

Just a 2x speed upgrade from regular 3G. Android, Windows Phone, etc are running this edition.

This is not LTE 4G.

 

If you've watched the Apple video regards to Antennagate, you need to have a silicone case to prevent yourself from touching the bottom portion of your phone with your left palm. On just about every phone out there, the phones are sensitive to holding the bottom portion of the devices.

 

Be sure to install "Mark The Spot" by AT&T and record areas your connections are failing and they might send their trucks to the problem areas for maintenance. Might as they never fixed my problems completely.

Re: Just in! New Phone and Phone Rates

i know exactly how you feel- i replaced my 3g phone with another 3g phone and it wasn't upgraded to 4g either! ... wait, no, that's how reality works.
iphones aren't 4g yet, sorry to say. they are dinosaurs behind glass screens with pretty logos on the back.

get a 4g droid if you're really interested in 4g, or wait for iphone to play catchup with everyone else. sorry, that's how it is for now.

 Curious, what real-world speeds is your brother getting? I normally get 1.5~3Mbps on AT&T 3G.

Re: Just in! New Phone and Phone Rates

att.com lists 3g as speeds up to 1.4 and 4g up to 21mbps - this is per the mobile broadband device page.

How can it be $90-100 less? Are you talking about multiple phones on a family plan? No way for one phone it is that much less.  We have two iphones and one regular phone, unlimited texting and pay around $170.

Re: Just in! New Phone and Phone Rates

people with prepaid service paying 10 dollars per 90 day period with virgin mobile are obviously the subject in this customer's gaze.

The OP's brother with MetroPCS is more than likely signed up for their $40 unlimited everything - period - plan. She must be on a family plan with at least one other smartphone user. I am a prepaid user and I get to skip the data plan for my smartphone. Hooray!

Seriously, Wild Banchi, it's time to nix the unlimited messaging package and switch to data feature package + Google Voice. Smiley Happy
