    When the Fold was first introduced, I recall people who insisted that T-Mobile should sell them one on JUMP. I tried to explain that maybe T-Mobile didn't have faith that the technology was mature...

    My theory is to never buy a phone that I can't afford to replace out of petty cash.

    First place I'd start is by looking at RootMetrics in detail. I also suggest doing a test drive with a prepaid SIM on whatever carrier you're thinking about. Note that in most of E NC T-Mobile does...

    With the total of my Fuel Rewards (T-Mobile, Gold Status, Restaurants) I was able to buy 20 gal of regular for $1.189/gal. Other than that, I'm not sure a veggie burger is worth the "price" of...
  5. Anyone else using the Moto G7 Power? Let's talk.

    I'm using a Moto G7 Power on T-Mobile (yes I know it's not a flagship). I find it exhibiting a peculiar behavior and would like to know if anyone else has noticed this. When I pass through an area of...

    When we had a Project Fi line, it was a struggle to keep the bill under $30/mo. I was always grabbing the wife's phone to make sure she was on WiFi and we had to run every data saver option the phone...

    I think it's misleading to title this thread "customer service" when it's actually limited to retail stores. The only reason I've been to a store in the last two years is to pick up some T-Mobile...

    They also set up a company to build towers together. Sort of like a duopoly might.

    This is one common complaint about T-Mobile following a disaster. Following Hurricane Katrina, I had T-Mobile service but no one on any cellular carrier could call anyone on any other carrier or...

    They're about the same. Both charge $10 for the SIM and have $15 plans.

    I do too. All I can say is that I see a lot of complaints about data speeds in big cities.
  12. As with fiber-optic and satellite service, unless...

    As with fiber-optic and satellite service, unless it provides better (faster) service at a better price, it's just nice information to know. The problem is that all the current competition is aimed...

    There are currently about a dozen folks who hang out here. There are 3007 counties (or the equivalent) in the USA. The chance of finding anyone here who has extensive knowledge of a specific rural...

    The coverage map of Indiana used to look like someone squashed a big spider on Indianapolis. In addition to CellMapper.net (which is posted above) I suggest you look at the RootMetrics.com coverage...

    The problem is that I spend too much time on the fringes. Were I to lock my phone into 2G/3G mode, it would spend much of its time with a big "E" on the display.

    It's not a special application. It's just a counter to congestion in urban markets. Out here in the 'burbs I'm happy with my cheapie Moto G7 Power with 2CA. If I lived in NYC or L.A., Philly or maybe...

    The single-number metric I'd like to see (Which RootMetrics could come up with) would be a population-weighted download speed. It would be the average download speed in every census tract divided by...

    AFAICT, only two groups care much about 5G: You have the tinfoil hat crowd who seem to believe it's the harbinger of the apocalypse and you have the wireless enthusiasts who believe it's the savior...

    The problem is not being "behind" other countries, it's being so far ahead. There is literally no such thing as greenfield low or mid-band in the US. Everything given for one use has to be repurposed...

    There have been many discussions about SoftBank's cash constraints. I think this is an attempt to regain some liquidity.

    That feature gained the old AT&T a lot of customers. It was sort of a game changer. After they introduced their roaming everywhere plan all the other carriers had to follow suit. Until then it was...

    I think owning Sprint would have that effect on anyone.

    No one, having spent the money to deploy and maintain broad (dare I say, "superior") coverage, would want to. Which is why the FCC imposed the requirement on all carriers. What Verizon is doing is...

    or 1200 baud modem over analog cellular? I used to have 9600 baud CSD and fax lines on my account but it was a feature T-Mobile dropped shortly after buying PowerTel.

    My main phone service is with T-Mobile and it's good in 98% of places I regularly go but I still carry a PagePlus PAYG as a backup when I travel in rural areas. I used to keep an Iridium phone active...
