Get rid of the only good thing you had going. posted on 08 Apr 2011, 13:18 1 21. jogutier (Posts: 324; Member since: 12 Feb 2010) I paid $99 for each Thunderbolt I bought and my ETF is $250. I paid less for with a contract price and option to cancell early than me paying full retail for the phone. You just have to know how to work the system. Threaten to leave to the right customer service rep and they will definitely work with you. Happy Friday Everyone !!!!! posted on 08 Apr 2011, 20:07 2 30. yodaynp (Posts: 3; Member since: 08 Apr 2011) You paid 99.00 for each of the Thunderbolts and your ETF was 250.00. Tell the truth, why would Verizon lower the cost of the phone from 249.99 for a 2 year contract then decide to negotiate a early termination fee from 350.00 to 250.00 just because you threatened to leave.? Are you the sole person keeping Verizon afloat? Really try to … [Read more...] about Comments for : Verizon nixes the one-year contract option from April 17th

There has been a lot of talk recently about emerging markets, almost as if analysts have finally realized that they exist, and that smartphones will be finding a lot of new customers in places like South America and Africa. Recently, we heard the Blaast CEO say he expects that Android will likely take about 75% of the market share in emerging markets. And now, an analyst wants to throw Apple 's name into the ring with the possibility of a $200 off-contract iPhone in 2014. Of course, just like the Blaast CEO didn't mention which version of Android would be taking over emerging markets (we're assuming it will be Android 2.3, not Android 4.x, as we've mentioned in past discussions on the topic ), Apple fanalyst Gene Munster doesn't really give much info on his iPhone prediction either. Munster has a record of making predictions mostly about Apple, and making his predictions sound good, but not have much info behind them. A couple years ago, he predicted that Apple would offer a … [Read more...] about Analyst expects a $200 off-contract iPhone in 2014, will it happen?

Talk about 3 telecommunication POWERHOUSES in the USA. I think it's better for struggling T-Mobile and even Sprint. I'd say: Go for it. We need some major competition to the BIG 2. posted on 08 Mar 2011, 09:42 1 2. bbonline (Posts: 38; Member since: 24 Feb 2011) This will be a good opportunity to disassociate from their current names (especially Sprint). I think that carrier has the current reputation due to its name only.

First off the 450 min plan at verizon is 39.99 not 49.99.... and second off if i add everything up, and multiply by 24 for two years it comes out to $1799.52 for verizon... $1679.76 for sprint.... and $1319.52 for T-mobile it appears that you did the math for a 4 year plan. posted on 12 Sep 2009, 12:23 0 2. theduckhat (Posts: 2; Member since: 12 Sep 2009) I was just about to say the same thing!

Patrick Caldwell for The Daily Dot 2013-01-01 00:57:52 UTC Follow @dailydot Gaze back on the story of podcasting in 2012 and you may notice conspicuously few major new players. Consider some of the biggest highlights: the purchase of Nerdist by Legendary Entertainment (and news of its full-season pickup by BBC America), the debut of Comedy Bang Bang on IFC, the industry's first stab at a truly all-encompassing awards ceremony in the form of the Stitcher Awards, President Obama's appearance on The BS Report, and the comedy podcast-focused Los Angeles Podfest. All of these are milestones for the medium, but they're developments dominated by players who have, at this point, been on the podcast scene for years. But what of the new shows, the recently emerged podcasts that have spent the year tightening their games and building their audiences? With the year drawing to a close, Podspotting flags up the 10 best new podcasts of 2012 — the shows that emerged strong, got even … [Read more...] about The 10 Best New Podcasts of the Year
