Thanks^ I'll check that out.
This is a discussion on System update/AT&T recognized? within the Nexus One forums, part of the Google Phones category; Thanks^ I'll check that out....
T-Mobile just needs a few more towers around where my kids live.
Or I need to stop paying for their phones :nexusx:
As for AT&T and the data plan, I'm on a $35 smart phone unlimited data from my Tilt, so I'm already paying too much for data.
I updated manually but the thing is that we might get bumped to $30/mo because ATT might have the N1 and I don't want to return this model and get the ATT 3G version, i'm ok with the edge battery life...
could be IMEI enforced.
I switched from Symbian to Android on January 6 2010...
...then I sold my N1 to get the AT&T version but I'll wait for a qwerty solution from google or better with AT&T band support and got the Nokia E75...
Or walk into a t-mobile store tell them you are thinking from switching from ATT and they might give you some good plan deals or match the ones you are currently on.
Hmmm... I got the system update last evening after midnight automatically, but I haven't noticed anything different relative to connectivity. The internet seems consistent with the way it was before. Speed doesn't appear to have changed.
I'm AT&T - on Family Unlimited Data for $30 as well. I can't stand jumping around cell providers. It's like moving from Cable to DTV, I waited 10 years just because I operate on the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" hypothesis. I've had T-Mobile (good customer service - fair network), Sprint (HATE SPRINT - WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE THAT I HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED) You could not pay me to go back to the games they play.
I've been on AT&T ever since dumping T-Mobile about 2 years ago because I changed employers and I love them. Their customer service sets them apart. Unfortunate about their band frequency for 3&4G, but Edge serves my purposes. I really don't know what all the need is for speed on a cell phone, it gets me my email, a quick look at a web page or a download for an MP3 file of a voice mail, but who's got the eyes or the desire to actually use a smart phone for what a laptop is made for. It's a phone, not a computer. (Well kinda)
@Finishlinewrx - was your update done OTA or manually? i'm also on at&t with a manually applied update and i'm still using the $10/monthly data package on my family plan. anyway now that i have "the heads-up-notice" i'll be closely monitoring my account.
I've changed it back twice to the family plan and it last about 6hrs, then I get another sms saying this phone requires a data package. My account still show the last locked phone I had on there from a few years back.
AT&T customer service couldnt tell me why it added it. Then I got a let me talk to my suppervisor and never got a call back.
Powered on my phone this morning and received two 'free' text messages alerting me that I should be using a smartphone data plan. Installed the update 2 days ago over the air. Check email and was notified that I had been 'upgraded' to their $30 unlimited smartphone data plan. Had been on the $15 unlimited.
