Got the LG as an upgrade. Out of the box, it was slow and sluggish with the shipping OS which was GB IIRC. Once I updated to ICS, it was terrific.

Only cost me $1.60 to get an unlock code from ebay.
Nice! What kinda speeds are you getting with UMB?

Unfortunately, I don't have UMB. I only have the 100 MB plan.

I no longer have the phone as I passed it onto my brother who is on Rogers.

Has anybody tried to see if Windows phone 7 or 8 will work with UMB?

i was wondering if it was possible to transfer my existing umb plan to an LTE sim. I just bought a nexus 4 and would love to take advantage of the LTE speeds or if i could get LTE speeds with just my regular sim

So how would it not let me connect to the LTE network? Arent the APNs identical to the regular HSPA+ ones? How would they differentiate between the two?

UMB is not a data plan -- therefore you don't have access to LTE. Please read the thread in full.

Looks like certain variants of UMB are now stackable with actual data options.
However, UMB still prevents LTE on a system level.

Does this mean LTE compatible?

Too bad I'm just on prepaid UMB.

I just said, UMB still prevents LTE access. However, by stacking options, one would be eligible for hardware subsidy and they would "probably" maintain their unlimited data access in the process (as we've seen with other users that have stacked features).

I have 4 phones on family share. 3 smartphones, 1 dumb
unlimited video, picture, text messaging
UMB
500 LD minutes
350 anytime
everything is shared between all 4 phones
Total with taxes is $160

Im guessing no new plans would come close to this ?
We are up for hardware upgrade on 2 smartphones......... any chance we could keep everything as is
and get 2 new Galaxy s3 ?
or are we better off just buying phones and sticking our simcards in and not even bother trying ?

S3 upgrade w/ UMB will cost $399.95 (16GB) + $35 upgrade fee / user IF you find a rep willing to push them through.

You can buy the phones outright on Kijiji for around $400 - $450.

I'm jealous of your plan. No UMB for me :(
