    I understand completely. WP isn't going to work for most people because of the app gap, but I enjoy the UI and native apps (Outlook Mobile and Cortana, especially) enough to be willing to work around...

    I switched from WP to Android for a few months, but got so sick of Android, I switched back. After having every conceivable app available on Android, I realized I just wasn't using that many of them!...

    I know I'm bringing back a dead thread, but thanks for the TPO suggestion- I found this searching the site for cheap unlimited "2G" data options. I'm setting up an old iPhone as an elderly person's...

    Perhaps they're killing the Global SIMs in waves, rather than all at once.

    If, as I suspect, "FreedomPop" is a much tinier operation than they pretend they are, they probably aren't equipped to...

    You're older than I am, then. Lowest I can remember was 33 right before the "oil crisis" of the 1970s! :)

    Yes and no... All companies incur costs when providing goods and services. When the cost of electricity goes up, McDonald's doesn't keep the cost of a cheeseburger at $0.85 and then charge a $0.15...

    When my daughters went on school trip to Europe recently, I just opened a new 2-line T-Mo account before they left, and put the new SIMs in their phones to use abroad. When they came back 9 days...

    I went the "sell it" route. Transferring it to Ameritrade (where the rest of my T-Mo stock is) seemed like too much trouble for the lousy $67. I'll just pay the $20 or so in gains on it next year and...

    It's not that hard. I'm not that good with this stuff but even I found it easy. My son dropped his and broke the display, so I gave him mine, which he also dropped couple of months later and broke...

    Yes and no. The advantage of WP10, supposedly, vs. WP8.x was the "shared core" with desktop Windows 10- meaning much of the underlying code is the same, which is why "universal" Windows apps can run...

    Which of those permissions seem excessive to you, keeping in mind that the FP messaging app is essentially a replacement messaging and dialer app?

    To send/receive MMS it needs to access your...

    I'm using a(n Amazon Prime ad-supported) G4 on T-Mo. It's a very decent phone for the price. Unlike any Samsung, it supports adoptive storage, which lets you use an SD card as main memory (if you buy...

    In my case, my Zmax 2 WiFi worked fine with BT on until I installed RetailMeNot. It persisted through hard resets for me because I usually set my devices up to reinstall the apps and settings from...

    Does WiFi work if you turn Bluetooth off? If so, it's (believe it or not) an app conflict. It took me forever and a lot of googling to discover that certain apps cause a BT/WiFi conflict on some...

    So you think it'd be better if T-Mo throttled all data on this plan, rather than just video, because it would be more consumer friendly to degrade the entire service, rather than just the portion...

    I'm with the OP on this- the most annoying lie on the current coverage maps isn't exaggerated strength areas, it's that they don't show roaming areas until you drill down to city level. I've often...

    T-Mo's easy fix for the EFF/Net Neutrality drum-bangers here would be to simply throttle the entire $70 plan to 1.5-2Mbs, rather than single out just video streaming for the throttling.

    Wouldn't...

    In my experience, any tablet will work with the plan, you just might have to call T-Mo customer service and plead your case. I activated a GC100 Samsung Galaxy Camera on the 200MB free tablet data...

    The OP means you can no longer move apps or app data to SD with Android 6.0. You can only store pictures and media.

    6.0 allows you to format an SD card as "internal memory" using a function called...

    While it is all but dead and has virtually no user base, I'm amazed at how much app development is still going on, presumably thanks to UWP. There are very few iOS/Android apps I wish I had access to...

    Sorry to reply to myself, but I wanted to add the solution to this for posterity. It was an app causing the issue.
