What cell phone and plans is everyone using?

Personally I cannot wait to get rid of my iPhone 4 an buy a Nexus 4 outright from Google and get TMO's 30 a month plan.

Thought about a tracfone, but I like to surf the webs on my commute to work.

I'm that guy texting at the urinal (inside joke).

I don't know what life was like before having a smartphone.

I have a Nexus 4 on TMOs $30 prepaid plan and I love both the phone and the service. The only thing is the battery life is a little on the short side and if you talk a lot on the phone you have to be careful about using up your 100 minutes. I love the larger screen and the pure Android though.

Good to hear you have the same thing I'm going for.

What case do you have?

$35 unlimited text / talk.

I am in front of computers enough. I could toss $15 more in and get unlimited data* as well.

I'm on T-Mobile service, with the unlimited talk text and data(with the first 500mb at 4G speeds, then slower, but the slowed speed isnt bad). IM on a family plan, 3 phones for 90$(before tax and phones)

IM using the BlackBerry z10, and it is an AMAZING phone.

If smartphones weren't ridiculously expensive, I would get a new BB. But I am smart enough not to pay for such a phone outright or through a subsidized contract, especially with such a spotty provider like T-Mobile.

I have an iPhone 4S and after having it for over a year I've ended up disabling most features on it like the internet browser, my ability to shop, to watch videos. etc. I pretty much just talk/text, but I can check email, take pictures, use the iPod, etc. So it still does a lot without sucking my brain out.

The camera on it is relatively nice. I could see having one for that reason.

Some people just get the phone and use it as a iPod touch plus a better camera.

Achronos, the BB touch screen is way better than anything else.

Give yourself a week. Everyone I know says the same thing. And they weren't committed to keeping the phone. BB rolled out some to try to get back into the market (which they won't).

Despite it being a better information manager and phone, too many people have too much invested in Android.

And really the iPhone is still the best selling phone. I love how they lump one phone in with hundreds of various android driven phone when they discuss market share.

And yeah I would rather get invested in Android anyway, or atleast having pure Android without the bloatware from Google.

What's the retail sticker on one of those BB touch screen phones anyway? It still may be cheaper to got the Nexus 4 route over long term.

So my iPhone 4 can't keep a charge anymore, and it runs through the battery so fast even when I turn the brightness low. It's on its last legs.

Love having these first world problems. Need my Nexus 4 nao.

I have an iPhone 4 3G from Verizon that I got for $100 because I knew the guy who works there. It works just fine for me. Battery is better than any other phone I have had. Maybe the issue is that you are charging it too fast. I never charge my iPhone until battery life reaches 10% or lower. Charging it willy nilly when it's still at like 50% + could be bad for it in the long run.

....such a spotty provider like T-Mobile.

T-Mobile is garbage. NEVER go over to T-Mobile. It's like making a deal with the Devil. For starters, their coverage is average at best, plans overpriced and customer service isn't too well. I switched over to Verizon a little over a year ago and I can get much more from them for the same price I was paying T-Mobile.

Well that's the thing I do wait until its 10% and charge, I never let it die. Don't know why the longevity of a lithium ion battery is.

Anyway about T-Mobile

My employer gives me a 15 percent discount. With the plan I want I can get it for 26 dollars a month.

Mch cheaper than Verizon, who I have now, and no contract.

Win win. And it's only 10 bucks for a sim card. So I it doesn't work out, get another provider.

Also, Achronos, I can personally attest that, where you are living, you will have no problems with tMobiles service.

ALso, Tmobile has wifi calling, so even if you dont have service, but have WiFi, you can make calls.

Also, not charging smartphones, especially if you are a heavy user on a nightly basis is an awful idea. Then again, I can just carry a spare battery, and no problem.

Responsible usage is plugging it in whenever you get the chance, because, why wouldnt you.

But that simplicity holds it back from being more customizable, especially it's UI and apps.

I really dislike Apple, too much content control and Proprietary software and hardware.

I don't want to hear the apologetic that building an iMac isn't proprietary because they use nVidia and intel components. Yeah you are only allow a certain few to choose from.

And really building your own PC is a out a third of the cost than having Apple do it.

Also apple is the most successful marketing scam sincer pretty much ever.

Then hell to the yes.

I mostly use Wifi anyway.

Wait, what plans are being offered to you through work or wherever you're getting the service through?

Because, the new TMobile plans are unlimited talk, text, and data for all plans, the only question is how much of that data is 4G

Thanks. I have WiFi only too right now and was thinking about switching it for the 3G- but if getting it to work over there is a hassle I probably won't do it.

Achronos,

Enjoy supporting google's further invasion of privacy and their bloatware.

They are the new and worse MS.

Bloatware to push overblown hardware.

Except rather than just getting your money like MS was kind enough to do, they want every data point possible about you.

MS, Apple, BB, feature phones are ways to opt out of this. I've slowly been migrating away from google period.

What cell phone and plans is everyone using?

Personally I cannot wait to get rid of my iPhone 4 an buy a Nexus 4 outright from Google and get TMO's 30 a month plan.

Thought about a tracfone, but I like to surf the webs on my commute to work.

I'm that guy texting at the urinal (inside joke).

I don't know what life was like before having a smartphone.

I have a pay as you go from Virgin Mobile. I hate their free ringtones, but I got a free phone by paying $20 for the first three months. To keep your phone number you pay $20/3 months. End of message.

I have Virgin Mobile as well.  I spend $20 every month for 200 minutes.  Texts cost me 15 cents.  Web use costs $1.50 a day.  My only gripe is that Virgin Mobile charges the web use fee if you "top up" from the phone.  I don't use a lot of minutes, text a lot nor use the web.

Part of me wants an iPhone 5 which would help with Internet access because I have none where I live.  Most of my bar trivia team has iPhone 5 with a couple of holdouts sticking with Android phones.  I also like the iPad mini.

Tending Brigid's flame


« Reply #38 on: June 07, 2013, 03:05:15 AM »

I have an old Nokia clamshell (can't be bothered to look up the model now) on Orange Camel (PAYG with low international rates). I only have it to be reachable when out of the house and as a backup for calling my mum in Greece when we're away from home, hence the plan. Occasionally I make small payments here and there by text message as well. That's about it. I suppose I'll get a smartphone when this one dies, but I really don't care for a replacement right now.

We have an answer! It takes three orthodox to send a text message!

In this thread we're still in the minority. We'll have to make them see the errors of their cell-phone using ways.

When asked for my cell number I say I'm not a prisoner.

Apart from moral conduct, all that man thinks himself able to do in order to become acceptable to God is mere superstition and religious folly. - Immanuel Kant

Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. - Matt. 5:24
