In its new scheme, MetroPCS is advertising unlimited talk, text, ‘Web browsing’ and YouTube at a base price of $40 per month, with additional features like mobile instant messaging or access to audio downloads available on higher tiers for another $10 or $20 per month,” the letter states. “Notable among these ‘additional features’ is the use of a category of Internet content, websites, applications, and services labeled by MetroPCS as ‘Data Access.’ Although this category is ambiguous, various news reports, documents, and statements provided by MetroPCS indicate that it includes popular Internet applications and services, including Skype and Netflix. Users of the base MetroPCS plan apparently will not have access to such Internet content, websites, applications, and services. Users of the intermediate plan will have their use of such services capped at 1 GB per month, even though these users can continue to use their mobile broadband plans for other content, applications and services (most notably, some forms of web browsing, along with YouTube video viewing). By selectively blocking or capping the use of some Internet content, websites, applications, and services, MetroPCS appears to be in violation of the Commission’s recently adopted open Internet rules.

I joined this multi level mobile phone company a few months ago in case it was real. I lost $69.99 sign up because it has not been able to produce anything it promised. I even lost my WordPress Blog because I wrote about this multi level company and my experiences with them and I had posted most of the emails I got from Buzzirk or Zero1. I read today an article about Buzzirk and Zero1 that I am copying below from Fierce Wireless. Zer01 Mobile, the MVNE that has been dogged with concerns about its service, said that because of a breach of contract it has cut its business ties with Buzzirk Mobile, which was supposed to distribute the company’s service. Zer01 did not specify in what way the contract had been breached. The company also sought to address questions that have arisen about its business and technology. Recent reports by IDG News Service have raised concerns about the viability of Zer01′s service offering as well as the business practices of marketing firm Global Verge, which owns Buzzirk.”Overall, there were a number of news articles and blogs that mis-reported a lot of the facts about each company and its services,” Zer01 spokesman Ron Dresner said in a statement.Zer01 said the business dealings of Global Verge don’t reflect on Zer01, and that the two companies are separate entities. The company also saidÂ ”questions about Zer01 Mobile’s patent-pending technology in the news are totally unfounded and motivated by marketplace competitors. Any visit to the patent office will prove Zer01 Mobile’s VMC technology registration.” Zer01 added that it cannot release information about its business partners, following questions about what carriers will support the company’s VoIP-based technology (neither AT&T Mobility or T-Mobile USA–the country’s two nationwide GSM carriers–are working with Zer01).Finally, Zer01 said it planned to defend its “reputation and integrity,” possibly with legal action.Zer01 has promised a mobile virtual network enabler service that could support unlimited wireless voice and data service via mobile VoIP technology running over an unnamed carrier’s GSM network.
Sent from the Internet (Details) Hi Guys, I hope that everyone is doing well. The last few weeks we have patiently waited for Global Verge and Zer01 to get their acts together and begin distributing what they promised.The 30 days that they asked are up, and with the following two sites publishing valid facts, we have decided to put our efforts elsewhere.We have since cancelled our autoship. We strongly recommend that those of you that have joined the venture do the same. Steve Lewis interim CEO fired:http://www.mlmhelpdesk.com/2009/08/07/breaking-mlm-wireless-news-global-verge-founders-fire-steve-lewis-and-crew-before-they-can-resign/ Zer01 terminated buzzirk and global verge yesterday, and they are suing them: www.dslreports.com/shownews/Zer01-Blames-Partners-Press-For-Problems-103946
At&t is offering an unlimited prepaid plan for $60 a month. This plan will also give unlimited text after 2 days on the plan.
The details are still vague to me but what I can gather so far is that you must activate your cell phone on the 25 cents flat rate prepaid offer and then you can change it to the $60 a month unlimited nationwide talk. Then after 2 days being on the $60 unlimited prepaid plan, unlimited messaging would be added at no extra cost. Within the 2 days waiting for the unlimited messaging to be activated any text would be charged 20 cents pay per use and 25 cents pay per use for picture messaging.
This will change everything with at&t offering unlimited talk for $60 prepaid, why would you pay $59.99 for 900 minutes post pay with a 2 year contract. Does this mean at&t will be changing their post pay plans? Let see what impact this will have on at&t and the other major wireless providers. I will offer this prepaid plan with and without a cell phone.
Since I first posted about this preplan withat&t I have gotten people emailing me saying they have called at&t and no one knows about this plan. I now know it is only offered in Las Vegas and South Florida. I will sell anyone this prepaid offer and mail the cell phone or sim card to them and we could use Payapl so everyone is protected. For more information on this please contact me.
J.D. Power and Associates Reports: NET10 Ranks Highest in Customer Satisfaction among Non-Contract Wireless UsersWhile Pay-as-You-Go Non-Contract Plans Have Higher Levels of Satisfaction, Non-Contract Monthly Plan Offerings GrowWESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif.: 30 July 2009 – Prepaid carrier NET10 ranks highest in overall customer satisfaction among non-contract wireless users, according to the J.D. Power and Associates 2009 U.S. Wireless Prepaid Customer Satisfaction Index StudySM released today.NET10, included in the study for the first time this year, achieves a score of 774 on a 1,000-point scale and performs particularly well in three of the six factors that drive overall satisfaction: performance and reliability; cost of service; and account management. Also ranking at or above the industry average in rank order are TracFone, Boost Mobile, Virgin Mobile, Alltel and T-Mobile.”NET10 differentiates itself from other companies by simplifying the wireless experience with straightforward pricing, virtually no roaming charges and robust nationwide network coverage,” said Kirk Parsons, senior director of wireless services at J.D. Power and Associates. “Users find they don’t have to worry about restrictive calling areas and can maintain their account without hassle.”The study finds that product offerings in the prepaid segment have changed dramatically during the past year, with many wireless carriers increasing their offerings of monthly plans-some of which mimic traditional contract plans, while others offer unlimited calling and texting. More than 40 percent of non-contract plans are monthly plans, compared with less than 30 percent in 2008.In addition, overall satisfaction among users of pay-as-you-go plans (756, on average) is considerably higher compared with users of monthly plans (742, on average), driven by satisfaction with the performance and reliability and account management factors.The study also finds several demographic differences that distinguish pay-as-you-go users from users of monthly prepaid service. The average pay-as-you-go user is older, more likely to be retired and has fewer wireless phones in their household. The average monthly prepaid plan user more closely resembles the average contract plan user-desiring a large network, mid-range feature phones and messaging, but without the commitment or penalties of a contract. Two-thirds of monthly plan users report that they have switched service from their former contracted service carrier.”As the non-contract wireless market continues to evolve, users need to be sure to explore all of the alternatives available to them in order to determine the appropriate plan that suits their needs,” said Parsons. “With this increased breadth of options, wireless users can find a plan that optimizes their wireless experience and meets their budget without requiring them to sign a contract.”The study also finds the following key non-contract wireless usage patterns pay-as-you-go users spend an average of $35 for each airtime purchase, a decrease of $5 from 2008.Monthly non-contract users spend an average of $25 less per month than do those with contracts. Monthly non-contract users report spending $56 per month compared with an average monthly service cost of $81 for contract users. Non-contract users report using 320 minutes per month-a notable increase from 233 minutes in 2008. Pay-as-you-go users report using an average of just 145 minutes, while monthly non-contract users report an average of 573 minutes per month. During the past 12 months, 16 percent of non-contract users have switched carriers. More than half (51%) of these users previously had contract service. Switching intent within the next year remains steady at 12 percent, compared with 13 percent in 2008. Among users intending to switch, 24 percent intend to switch to contract service. The 2009 U.S. Wireless Prepaid Customer Satisfaction Index Study, now in its fourth year, measures customer satisfaction with current non-contract wireless service across six key factors. In order of importance, they are: performance and reliability (28%); cost of service (19%); account management (17%); initial activation (15%); offerings and promotions (12%); and customer service (9%). The study is based on responses from 4,229 wireless users who currently subscribe to non-contract service plans. Findings are based on a continuous fielding period between January and June 2009.
