Cox has pulled the plug on its wireless phone service, no longer accepting new customers with the plan to discontinue service on March 30, 2012.
If you are a Cox subscriber, you will probably receive an email from Cox explaining a nifty new tool for its customers. Called the Data Usage Meter, Cox believes this tool will help its customers make informed decisions about their internet data consumption. And here at UCAN we're all for giving customers information and tools to help them make informed decisions. But tacked at the end of the second paragraph of the e-mail (see the PDF copy attached at the bottom of this post) was a startling piece of information: Cox gives you a data alottment that depends on your Internet package. Surprise!
AT&T Smartphone Without a Data Plan? Don't count it. On T-Mobile? Maybe.
Verizon Wireless must want to be AT&T. Perhaps the two are preparing for a merger because there is little explanation as to why Verizon Wireless seems to copying every bad decision AT&T makes. Just like AT&T Verizon Wireless will soon eliminate its unlimited data plan replacing it with a profit friendly, consumer frustrating tiered data plan.
T-Mobile announced today that it is moving from from an unlimited data plan to a tiered data plan. This isn’t a drastic change from its current data plan offering, but it does change the game a bit. Is this change what consumers want or is it what the industry wants?
Chrip chirp chirp. Is that the sound of spring birds stretching their wings for a morning flight? Or is it the sound of crickets in response to AT&T’s announcement of its first prepaid Android phone? Engadget posted yesterday that, along with a new prepaid data plan, the wireless behemoth is dropping the LG Thrive on prepaid customers this Sunday, April 17. I guess crickets are a bit harsh, but let’s dive into what AT&T has to offer and compare it to another prepaid carrier that has had an Android handset available for prepaid service: Cricket Wireless.
T-Mobile--despite plans to merge with AT&T--has gone forward with a new sort of unlimited, limited-time-only, plan offering.
