#KeepPrayerFree & stop T-Mobile from charging callers for prayer on free conference lines

Prayer should never come with a cost. The right to pray for free is under attack by T-Mobile. Despite its aggressive advertising campaign – including Super Bowl spots – positioning the company as the #Uncarrier for offering the “first unlimited subscription” void of surcharges, bogus fees and assorted taxes, the mobile conglomerate is waging a war on prayer. T-Mobile is blatantly, but surreptitiously charging an additional $0.01 per minute to customers who call prayer lines using free conference call services. One such service that has been affected is FreeConferenceCall.com, of which tens of thousands of prayer line callers have been affected by these charges and have taken to social media to voice their opinions about T-Mobile. Many T-Mobile customers call into prayer lines multiple times a week to pray with others for long periods of time, resulting in hundreds of dollars a year added to their service plan costs. By forcing them to pay additional fees for these calls, T-Mobile is effectively cutting off a spiritual lifeline for its loyal customers who cannot afford these charges. We are asking for your help to take action to prevent T-Mobile and any other greedy cellphone carriers who follow suit from gouging and targeting prayer customers with unnecessary and unfair costs. We strongly urge everyone interested in maintaining religious liberty to support the right of all people to pray together, free of costs and other barriers. Please call upon T-Mobile and any other corporations considering similar action to stop charging customers unfair, punitive and discriminatory fees that were designed to prevent faithful people of all religions from praying for free. Help the millions of individuals who utilize these services for prayer by signing this petition.

Urge T-Mobile to Protect the Environmentally Sensitive Lost Maples Region of Texas

T-Mobile is proposing to build a 26 story tall cell tower in the Lost Maples Region ecosystem in Vanderpool, TX.   T-Mobile and its tower construction company, Branch Towers,  is proposing to build a tower on a site in the Sabinal River Watershed and just a few hundred feet from the river itself.  The site poses inherent dangers to endangered wildlife in the area, including the Golden Cheeked Warbler and the Black Capped Vireo.  A huge tower like this one will disrupt nesting areas, migration patterns and result in bird strikes.   Blinking lights and noisy industrial equipment with have a disruptive effect on wildlife and the people who love the area for stargazing.   This tower would also pose a serious risk to underground springs that feed the river and provide water for area landowners, and for those visitors who enjoy recreational activities in the area.   These companies have been secretive and are hiding behind FCC regulations that do not even require notice to adjoining landowners or those who want to protect the environment.     They have not done the due diligence necessary to evaluate all of the dangers of this proposed tower site.    Ask T-Mobile, Branch Towers and our elected officials to require the company to consider all of the risks and work with landowners to secure an alternate site that will have less impact on the area.   Landowners just recently learned of the project and need your help in asking these companies to do the right thing.     If you love nature, have visited Lost Maples State Natural Area, or have stargazed in Texas Hill Country skies join us in this effort.   Please sign the petition and call these companies and elected officials to demand they take action to address this in a responsible manner.   Help spread the word, and we appreciate your support.

Unlock Boot Loaders for S7 & S7 Edge - All Future Phones As Well

Many years ago the #booloadergate happened and this was with AT&T and Verizon at the time T-Mobile was winning customers back and they did just that. Locking the boot loaders on the S7 and S7 Edge not only cripples the device and puts it in doom but it will make 1000's of people leave Samsung and T-Mobile we are apart of a Development community who prides ourself's on making things better. Locking our paid devices down is not the way to go. You are telling us that Android OS no longer open to develop and change. This is not how Google wants it. Android is an OS which is meant to Modified. Unlocking the boot loaders will stop the push from the deployment community and users at Tmobile will not be trading there devices in and or leaving the company. John has made tweets to us however we have not heard back and we have a short time due to the policies with t mobile and device returns. Adding all Future phones as well we hit our goal of 1000 we will continue to fight this until the makers understand that taken away the ability to modify an android devices is not what Google wants for Android.  We make things better, Faster, Secure, We can ensure that a device has tip top notch use before it even goes to the masses on ROMS we create. This is a fight that needs to be known in the public eyes we will continue to push until we here from SAMSUNG and or other markers and there stand on this topic at hand. I am proud to say i am a developer and this is a stand we take seriously My name on the XDA forums is Ice5192  And I approve this message.

Cell/data reception back to rural areas.

Petitioning Verizon Wireless or any other mobile service provider for greater coverage in the North Louisiana region, specifically for rural communities.  Currently, since the recent "Unlimited" plan became available once more,  many customers from rural communities have seen a dramatic decrease of their phone and mobile data signal strength.  In many cases it has disappeared completely... Unfortunately at this time no other company offers service in these areas either,  so there's no incentive for Verizon to correct the issue,  since there's no competition.  This should provide competitive companies a fertile opportunity to take over those customers, simply by providing service.  It has been a common theme in these communities of late,  we are sick of Verizon's clear and present neglect. The modern economy demands access to internet,  it's nearly impossible to function or do business with any other company with out it. Depriving these rural communities access is a detriment to not only their economy, but to economy as a whole. Help us send a message to these providers that we are here TOO, and our money is the same color green as those in major metropolitan areas.

Tell T-mobile and FCC: No Radiation for Parkside School!

T-mobile will construct a RF radiation-emitting wireless communications facility within a residential zoning district 200 feet from Parkside Intermediate School unless we stop them. According to the Federal Trade Commission, which regulates these facilities, "A number of reports have appeared in the scientific literature describing the observation of a range of biological effects resulting from exposure to low-levels of RF energy. Some studies have also examined the possibility of a link between RF exposure and cancer."  According to one such study, it was shown that subjects living near a cell tower experienced increases in headache, memory loss, dizziness, tremors, depressive symptoms, and sleep disturbances (Abdel-Rassoul G et al. 2007).By declining to enter into a lease agreement with T-mobile for a transmitter on or near the school, Parkside Intermediate School has made it unmistakably clear that Parkside does not want the facility endangering its students.  By declining such a contract, the school rightfully chose the safety and well-being of its students over much-needed revenue.  T-mobile undermined the intentions of the school district by offering the lucrative contract to a private individual located less than 200 feet from the school property and likely positioned the transmitter in closer proximity to the classrooms than it would have been positioned if the school had accepted the contract.The San Bruno Planning Commission opposes T-mobile's choice of location for this facility.  Perry Peterson, Vice-Chair of the San Bruno Planning Commission, stated, "While my personal sentiment is that devices like this are better located in commercial districts or on commercial buildings or on public buildings, but, as far as that goes, if the law permits them in a residential zone, then I think you've done a pretty good job."  The Telecommunications Act of 1996 forbids city government to oppose these communications facilities based on health concerns.T-mobile is misusing The Telecommunications Act of 1996 to override the will of local government and place these facilities within residential neighborhoods against the will of the people.  We are forwarding a copy of this petition to the Federal Communications Commission to voice our outrage over the injustice made possible by these federal regulations.T-mobile could construct this RF radiation-emitting facility at any time and will likely begin construction the 1st week of may.  Tell T-mobile and the Federal Communications Commission:  we will not put our children at risk!

Keep monthly advantage discount plans

T-Mobile announced starting March 31st, 2014, they will no longer be offering monthly bill discounts to new customers. But wait, it gets worse. Starting April 25th, 2014, all customers, regardless of how long they've been with T-Mobile, will loose their monthly bill discounts. This means if you have a Corporate Discount Plan (T-Mobile Advantage plan), it will no longer be discounted. For myself, I will be loosing my 15% monthly discount which is a big deal. My $80 family plan will now be $100 (and that's just the base price!) T-Mobile has always been about being different and being cheaper than "the big guys." But this is uncalled for and unfair no matter how they try to spin it. This comes one week after T-Mobile started charging $10 more per month for their unlimited data plan. I will fight to keep my monthly discount, and you should too! Luckily, T-Mobile has ended all contracts so anyone who desires can switch over to another carrier without any fees!

HELP! Include the Veteran's Crisis Line as a default emergency contact in cell phones.

Each day, about 22 veterans commit suicide. Yet, we allow our focus to drift to "causes" of little or no substantial value. By signing this petition, we are going to do what the VA has not been able to do - Put veterans in contact with resources the very moment they need them. The VA spends millions of dollars each year poorly marketing the Veterans Crisis Line and yet complains that it doesn't have enough money to put trained operators on the other end of that line. For this reason, the VA has let our men and women down by restricting access and, when a veteran does call the line, often they are put on hold or sent to voicemail!.... at a time of crisis! By adding the Veterans Crisis Line as an emergency default contact option in cell phones, mobile network operators such as Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, AT&T, and Virgin Mobile USA can place help at the fingertips of nearly every veteran while reducing the money spent by the VA on marketing which may then be reallocated to hire more trained operators. Furthermore, by universalizing access, this method will flood the VA with veterans in need and, for the first time, actually force them to address systemic issues that have for too long plagued our vets. Thank you for your support!

OLIMPIADAS_TOKYO2020

Me gustaría poder participar en los JJOO de Tokyo2020 representando a la Selección Nacional de Karate. Para ello necesito financiación que me permita poder participar en la Liga Mundial que será lo que puntúe para el Ranking que más tarde clasificará para las olimpiadas. El problema que me encuentro es que no tengo patrocinador que me apoye económicamente y por ello es difícil la participación en toda la Liga Mundial, ya que supone un desembolso muy grande el cual no puedo permitirme. Actualmente me encuentro dentro de las 10 primeras del Ranking Mundial de karate, por lo que mis posibilidades de ir a Tokyo2020 son muy grandes, pero necesito apoyo económico para realizar mi sueño, sin ese apoyo, no creo que pueda optar a dicha clasificación.

Please waive the $200 fee to cancel my contract since I am leaving the USA.

I am moving to Spain this summer and therefore I need to break my contract. I have called customer care several times and I have also visited a T-Mobile store. They have all informed me that I must pay a $200 fee to cancel my contract. For a number of reasons, this does not make sense to me. First of all, last summer I traveled to Spain and my phone was stolen right when I arrived. I went to the police station to call T-Mobile and they informed me that they could stop service while I was on my trip, but that they would not send me a new phone in Spain. I was on a three-week trip by myself and had no phone. When I arrived back in the United States I went into a T-Mobile store to get a new phone. They made me sign another contract. I told them that I was moving to Spain in a year and they assured me that everything would be fine with breaking my contract and that I would not be charged a cancellation fee. Recently, I went into a T-Mobile store to inquire further about this. I was informed that the policy had changed since I signed my contract due to the fact that many people were coming from India, getting really great phones, and then moving back to India and canceling their contracts. Although I understand this concern, I am not from India. I have not in any way or form tried to scam T-Mobile. I have been a loyal customer for nine years. If they were to look at my history, they would see that I have always paid my bills early. They would also see that I do not have any special type of smart phone. My phone is actually super outdated.  In fact, I am a teacher and all of my students have much better phones than me. I am very displeased that despite my loyalty to T-Mobile, they are lumping me into a category with people who have scammed the system. They have not given me any wonderful phone and I do not feel appreciated whatsoever as a long time customer. I would really like to be able to cancel service with T-Mobile free of any cancellation fees. I do not feel that I should have to pay this fee just because they changed the contract after I signed it. I thank you for reading my case and signing my petition!
