    Phil? Is that you again? If it is, you never did answer where T-Mobile=20
    does this, after claiming "all other (U.S.) carriers" do it.

    I support anyone, everyone, or noone as my concience calls. Summarily
    judging me in such a negative fashion as a troll supporter simply because
    you disagree with an opinion I hold which may be similiar to someone you
    routinely disagree with is rather small minded.

    I read and if I'm bored I move on. I read and if I see the post is going
    nowhere I move on. I read and if I see the post amounts to a petty
    attack I move on.

    You should read some of what the anti-Phil crowd put out. Today for
    example he's been posting about the confusing nature of the way that
    Sprints advertising the 7 nights and weekends. He's right in that it's
    really not morally speaking above board because, I believe anyway, that
    they're intentionally designed to give that impression. I think saying
    that they're lying is probably going to far. But I wouldn't necessarily
    call someone who calls Sprint liars for the practice liars either.

    The thing that gets me is that his (if it even was Phil) post was
    streight forward the responses to it in defense of Sprint were what would
    tend to confuse the issue.

    No. I stated that because quite frankly you and a few others come off as
    asses when responding to people whether Phil or not. And it's normally
    after people have made a negative comment about Sprint. As for Phil
    needing back-up. I'd say, judging from the number and intensity of the
    posting by the anti-phil crowd he doesn't need any help at all.

    As for me, I post as I choose, when I choose, for whatever reason I
    choose.

    I didn't say you were the one that tagged me as Phil. Whether or not you
    think I sound like Phil doesn't really concern me. When I post you will
    hear my opinions just as I see yours when you post. Comparing them with
    someone's I don't like for the simple expedient of undermining the
    opinions is frankly petty.

    Yes people have opinions which is as it should be. It's not realy your
    place or anyone elses place for that matter to judge their conceptions as
    misconceptions. People may be mistaken in their beliefs but that doesn't
    invalidate their beliefs.

    Many people hold beleifs about their service with Sprint based on how
    Sprint advertises itself and the intentionally obfuscatory way in which it
    words it's descriptions of the specifics of some of the services it
    provides. That's certainly not the customers fault.

    Bob, It's not your place to judge what is and isn't a legit complaint.
    You're not this newsgroups God.

    Howdy Cooper;

    First, I think it was you maybe that made similiar comments to the anti-
    phil crowd and I agreed with them as I read the debacle. I would like to
    point out that it doesn't take much time to see the utter futility of the
    anti-phil crowd. They can't control Phil or what he does but they're
    constant attempts at it are a major part of this newsgroup which one can
    make a judgement on almost immediatly. Do I know all of the specifics of
    the Phil "thing". But I don't need to know it to know that by comparison
    to the anti-phil crowd he's coming of a saint.

    The misconceptions that I'm talking about are:

    1) People posting here, complaining because they don't understand this is a
    two way radio communications, and expect it to be good as landline service
    when it can't be.

    2) That there will be dead spots, not because the wireless providers were
    lacksidasical in putting up towers, but because it was either deemed as not
    cost effective, or the NIMBYs in a particular area.

    3) That radio signals can be blocked, by buildings, land depressions etc. I
    could go on, but you get my drift.

    All companies have to do it that way in the primary advertising, to catch
    the user's eye. They go further in depth, with follow up explanations, and
    in the small print.

    See ... this proves you haven't read many of his posts, or the follow ups,
    where he outright lies, or misquotes other folks here. It's happened more

    Forget it Bob. This guy has no related agenda here and it is not
    clear to me why he came to this newsgroup in the first place. He just
    showed up here and started responding to posts.

    Howdy Bob,

    I don't think too many people believe that it should and those that might
    might just beleive that way based on how good it can be as opposed to
    their perception of how poor their current level of service is.


    > 2) That there will be dead spots, not because the wireless providers
    > were lacksidasical in putting up towers, but because it was either
    > deemed as not cost effective, or the NIMBYs in a particular area.


    The first reason is certainly the carriers fault and the NIMBY problem is
    certainly an issue that does come up but usually enough money thrown at
    it makes it go away. In both cases the carier would tend to make the
    decision unless it's some type of public ordinance prohibiting it.


    > 3) That radio signals can be blocked, by buildings, land depressions
    > etc. I could go on, but you get my drift.



    I think people generally understand this for the most part. Certainly
    anyone who's listend to radio from a car stereo would be aware of it.

    In any event if this were truly a huge problem the cariers could easily
    handle the issue by being more forward about the quality of their service
    and the extent of any problem areas. Unfortunatley you're not going to
    see too many cariers going out of their way to do that.

    If by followup explanations and small print you mean those in a radio or
    TV ad, a quick audio blurb or ultra fine print held on screen for a few
    seconds isn't really proper follow-up. If you're refering to them doing
    it on their websites. I suppose one could make the argument that they do
    but you would be hardpressed to convince most people that they make it an
    easy process to wade through the particulars of most of the plans and
    addons and fees and real costs associated.

    Hello Bob;

    It proves no such thing. It indicates that if a response looked like it
    was going to be an anti-phil futile attack, which far too many were, I
    didn't waste my time with them farther then the length of time it took to
    see it for what it was, after reading through too many of them.
