    The first thing I'd do is backup and reset the phone. Then reinstall only apps that have an "Exit" button and don't start background processes and services.

    Sometimes the LTE band is an "educated guess" based on things like the way the carrier normally assigns sector numbers.

    Looking a CellMapper, I can't find "Band 71" shown anywhere. This is reasonable. It's really to soon to expect coverage to start showing up.

    I used to carpool with a guy who drove a pacer. The hole in the exhaust line almost asphyxiated me. Otherwise, it wasn't a half-way bad car. The door on the passenger side was longer than the door...

    Actually, my "thousands of visitors" remark was being factious.

    You might ask the same about Guam. They don't because they decided not to. From the pains and expense the other carriers are undergoing to try to restore service there, it seems like a good decision.

    I just made a virtual drive-through using Google street-level view. Seems like a sad little town.

    Looking at various independent coverage maps,I don't see a general problem in Altamonte Springs. There are a few weak spots but it's not general. The tower grid is pretty dense and they do have...

    It's a little telling that none of the independent coverage maps show any service there. Only RootMetrics showed that someone took a T-Mobile phone through town but got no service. Mind you, I think...

    Almost. Verizon's CDMA voice network is actually 2G-2.5G. EV-DO, which they are in the process of shutting down, is the old data network and is/was 3G. Also, T-Mobile still has GSM but the phones...

    Despite the fact that Coalport receives literally thousands of visitors every month, none of the independent coverage maps (Sensorly, CellMapper, RootMetrics) have any data there.

    Five digits, as in: Thumb, Index, Middle, Ring & Pinkey. :)

    The Governor keeps talking about Sat-COWs being distributed in towns around the island. I assume these are Satellite Cells on Wheels.

    As I recall (from a long time ago), there is no difference between UHF TV broadcast antennas on different channels. They are generally just a stack of bow-ties covering the whole UHF band. So the...

    Puerto Rico seems to have dropped off the news cycle. Anyone have any updates? Neville Ray tweets some pictures from time to time but no captions make for not much of a story.

    This is exactly the picture that T-Mobile and AT&T tried to paint when T-Mobile was trying to get bought out. They weren't "competitive". At least not until they had no other choice, then they got...

    In Europe, deployment of long-range GSM is common along the coast, particularly covering ferry routes.

    Where were you when this happened? Band 26 is a superset of band 5. The only place T-Mobile uses band 5 is around Myrtle Beach. It is possible that the could transmit a band 26 MFBI in that area.

    I would have said, "Yes", but I just topped up all the cars anticipating Hurricane Nate and might not be able to make full use of my own code.

    Yes. When I click the down arrow link just before "T-Mobile no longer hates Nebraska��", I'm transported to the Home page. Another member says it does the same for him.

    I think T-Mobile has no PCS in Billings but that's immaterial. Between bands 12, 4, 66 and 71 they have plenty of capacity to deploy across the state and provide a reasonable level of service for...
