    Yes, today is a good day to get SIM cards. They don't have to be activated for two years or so, so it doesn't hurt to order one just to have on hand, or even if you think you might switch to T-Mobile Monthly at some point.

    I did take a look and doing Buy It Now NEW the cheapest is $329. The avg sale price is $179 accordng to ebay.

    I notice 3 button (Jelly Bean) vs 4 button.

    Amaze got microSD.

    There are only 3 auction on this and the rest is all Buy It Now. Less popular?

    One S is less popular with the elite. Nobody has even done s-off on it.

    Not much need. You can unlock the bootloader via htc dev and do everything else you need via fastboot commands.

    It would nice to do the unlock w/o using htcdev. This would tell HTC your phone is red flag.

    I port my number from Sprint to Tmobile tonight and sign up for the $30 5GB plan.

    Got email confirmation that it will take 24 hrs.

    Did it past midnight and this AM woke up my Sprint phone say about data error. Check my new T-mobile and number has been ported. That is fast.

    So far using VOIP and its great. Saving money. I love it.

    4G everywhere.

    I tried the $30 plan for about 24 hrs. I've tried a slew of Wi-Fi calling apps, on a couple different devices, and I just couldn't stand it. Call quality was horrendous. Nobody could hear a word I said. It was unusable. Had to upgrade to the $60 plan.

    Needless to say I'm a little upset. Next month I'll be switching to an mvno like straight talk or Solavei.

    I didnt have that bad experience like you have so far. It has been alright to me.

    It's not for everyone. Sorry it didn't work out for you.

    It's not the recommended plan if you make alot of phone calls

    Yeah it's cool. I'm glad it works for some people. I commend you for saving money like that. It's just a shame I'll have to pay more. $30 sounded good.

    did you need more minutes??? why upgrade and pay more if it's basically the same (crappy) service?

    i hope it works out for me as im actually waiting for my tmobile microsim.

    Sims expire? All or just prepaid? Or am I just to new to Tmo to understand why i need extra cards... Heck, my wife sucked one up in the vacuum the other day and I laughed when she told me she dug it back out.

    The internet calling was terrible. The regular cell calling is fine.

    He was using Apps (such as GrooveIP) to make phone calls using the Internet rather than through the T-Mobile voice service. From what he was saying, his T-Mobile service worked fine, just that the app he was using to make VoIP calls did not work well on his phone.

    Many of us who have the T-Mobile $30/month plan use a VoIP app since we only get 100 voice minutes from T-Mobile but 5 GB or data -- it is an easy and cheap way to basically turn that plan into an "unlimited" talk plan. VoIP typically works fine but because of the setup of some phones, or the data connection in the area, the apps don't always provide quality phone calls without some tinkering in the settings of the app.

    The internet calling is not terrible to me at all. I think the key thing is 4G.
  22. lightsleeper23

    lightsleeper23 Well-Known Member

    Yes, exactly. I am happy for others that it works out well and they get to save money. But I've tried grooveip, voip, talkatone, and more with the same results. I've done much tinkering in the settings of the app. I managed to make i think one phone call that was still not great but we were able to complete. I used my Wi-Fi at home... terrible. My T-Mobile 4G service (with which I average 8 to 9 mbps) even worse results. Must just be my phone.

    I haven't been able to get rid of the lag with either Groove IP or that other one who's name I can't recall now. :D They both sounded fine though.

    Did you make sure you are on 4G?

    At home I have 4 mbps upload. I dont know if that matter.
