Australia carriers usually only offers unlimited on $40 plans, or higher.
I'm paying 60 a month though on my g3 that I got outright because I'm not a poorfag. You get much better service that way.

Well, think about the kind of person who would drop more money on a phone with inferior specs just to have the status of owning one. They derive self-worth from having more expensive products than other people, regardless of the quality. Ironically enough, spending more money on lesser hardware is a testament to their place in the world as a tool and those who do research and learn before they spend money have an easier time identifying such tools.

because niggers (the kind of subhuman that is obsessed with this green bubble shit) only care about how wealthy they appear to everyone else.
iPhones are associated with wealth, so if you don't have an iPhone, despite flagship Android phones often being more expensive than iPhones, you are poor.
Niggers would literally take an iPhone 4 over an LG G3 just for green bubbles.

>> No.52202606

Greens can't take part in group messaging, so if you want to organize something in a group and one of your contacts is a green then you have to talk to him separately and relay conversation.

Which is retarded, just get a cross platform messenger you cunts. Signal is basically everything iMessage offers across platforms and soon into the desktop space.

Unfortunately those people are a very large group.

What is even the benefit of keeping that shit on. If I'm texting someone it's because I don't have internet or I'd be messaging them with another app.

I would use Signal if there were a desktop client that wasn't Javascript-laden chromium webapp shit. One of the big appeals of iMessage is that you can switch over to your computer with a real keyboard for lengthy conversations and catch/deal with messages without pulling out your phone.

I'm on T-Mobile prepaid. $50/mo for a bunch of data and more voice and text than I'll ever use. I don't even know if I have a text limit.

The only people who pay for SMS messages are people who are on REALLY old plans and have no idea they're getting ripped off, or pay-as-you-go type prepaid setups. They're equivalent to the olden days when you'd buy a calling card and have X long distance minutes. But instead of long distance, you're buying X amount of connectivity, where calls, data, and text messages each break down to some portion.

Really don't. Look at them.. Circlejerking, intolerant, hypocritical, self-centered retards.

Labelling everything we do as racist, you can't even identify them or their mannerisms as being a "black" thing or you're called a racist..
They are identical to the dumb popular high school chicks in films, who are only popular because the beta bitches are scared to get bullied by her so they follow suit and idolise her.
