05 September 2012 - 07:20 PMThey are all powerful and very greedy.......brings out the very worst when Corporations get that large ...... including the biggest in the US
Sure...it's like that all over...
But, what I don't get, in this particular case, is that they can actually make a bunch from the dual-service by offering a competitive data plan and then spiking-up charges when voice is used (that's precisely what Vodafone Portugal - who are not very charitable themselves - does).
Instead, they block the feature and drive users to VoIP solutions...Very odd.
05 September 2012 - 06:00 PMThe Galaxy Tab 7.7 for Verizon does not come with a sim card slot....
So, it's a P-6810, not a P-6800, right?
The US operators strategy of not allowing phone calls is ridiculous and as good as shooting their own feet.
They CAN separate traffic, if fees are their concern. GSM is set-up that way, with voice and data services separated.
I only have one SIM card, but the contract with my Service Provider, here in Portugal, is for data. If their system detects that voice has been used through the same SIM they just apply different (hefty) charges, that's all.
By disabling the voice side of the GSM card US operators are just loosing the voice calls to VoIP services and, in the process, nullifying one of the advantages of Android over iOS.
Not very clever in my opinion...But, then again, maybe they know something I don't.
