  1. Confused on Billing

    I think the 6P launched at $500 for the base model.
  2. Confused on Billing

    For decices that have good OS update support (4+ years) it's not unreasonable to keep a phone for more than 2 years which is where the full contract pricing starts to be beneficial. That's personally what I plan on doing. (I also got in on the Shared Data pricing when the connection fee was $10/mo. when you have the 8GB plan ($80). Split among the 5 lines on our account, I only pay $30.66/mo. for phone service including taxes/fees. I don't want some sales person trying to force me to some other plan by reviewing my account. 😉) Hopefully, a side benefit of seperating the true cost of the phone vs the true cost of the service will lead to greater competition in both areas. And maybe when people see that the newly released premium phone will cost them around $700, people will think twice about buying that phone. A good article related on that, http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2016/04/the-rise-of-the-400-smartphone-you-want-how-much-for-a-flagship/.

    The connection fee pricing is on a line by line basis. As far as subsidized vs full price phones, the cost over two years is typically pretty close. For example, a Galaxy S7 is $200 subsidized, plus a $40/mo. connection fee is $1,160 over 2 years ($200 + $40 * 24). Off contract, the phone costs $672, plus a $20/mo. connection fee is $1,152 ($672 + $20 * 24).

    You don't have to take their word for it, you can look at your bill to see if you are getting the $20 discount on any of your lines.

  8. switched to verizon

    Is that really how it works? Verizon doesn't ask for any documentation on how much your ETF is?
  9. data roaming deal

    I have an iPhone 6s and did *228 and I'm still at 15141.
  10. Upgrade to 18 months on installment plans?

    But if you pay only 18 months-worth, you have to turn in the phone too, correct? Edit: Found it myself, yes you do.
  11. That's bizarre, I've never heard of this. How did you find this out?
  12. Verizon lte roaming agreement with uscellular

    Am I reading this wrong, but doesn't the second image show the phone is on Verizon LTE, not US Cellular?
  13. data roaming deal

    I wonder if the iPhone 6s will support the LTE roaming? It supports bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 13, 17, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 38, 39, 40, 41.
  14. data roaming deal

    I wouldn't be surprised if they made a big deal of the increased roaming alotment. I would think they would focus on the increased 4G area.
  15. data roaming deal

    Tomorrow the roaming data limit gets doubled to 400MB. The 4G roaming footprint will be rolled out over the next "several weeks" (mid November - "early" December). They won't be promoting it until it's fully rolled out, but you may be able to start roaming before then. No word on who the roaming partner is, maybe an employee could chime in? Maybe someone can hang around Chicago for the next few weeks and force their phone to roam on LTE and see who it picks up .
