    Dish will be able to take over any of Sprint's tower leases that T-Mobile does not need. I'd imagine that Sprint's equipment at those towers would be depreciated to the point that it would cost...

    T-Mobile has been deploying band 71 along US-80, between Montgomery and Meridian. I also found band 71 in Oak Hill, AL when I passed through recently. Except for right along US-80, not many T-Mobile...

    That's one legislator for every 7000 people! What? Does everyone just take turns?

    I once got an official state road map of RI. Same size as the official road map of Texas but rather than the dots representing towns and cities, they're houses. ;)

    This is really the situation. The number of dual-SIM phones that support band 71 are very few and rather expensive. Not the $99 Blu you mentioned earlier.

    While dual-SIMs have been around a long time, for most of that time the second SIM has been a second-class SIM, limited to 2G only. In an environment where carriers have eliminated or depreciated 2G,...

    A long time ago someone (I wish I knew who) on Usenet had a SIG that went, "All wireless carriers suck. The trick is to find one that sucks in a way you can live with." I agree with @collegea,...

    I kind of wish they had dots of some color (grey or black) to indicate someone was there but found no signal. I understand this could be misleading, they might not have a phone with all bands.

    The GSM standard has provisions for forwarding texts but AFAIK it has never been implemented anywhere. Texts are delivered as usual when roaming. Since most T-Mobile plans have free incoming and...

    This is a bit OT but I'm curious if there are special trucker versions of GPS that can avoid stuff like low overpasses, high rail crossings and sharp turns? Where I live, a trucker has to go miles...

    Update: Today I went on my PP account to make sure I had the correct expiration date and learned, to my chagrin, that my plan had magically changed from PAYG to $12/monthly and had expired. The...

    Well, I just ordered a refurbished Dell T1700 mid-tower, with an i7-4790 chip, 16 GB RAM, 256 GB SDD & 2 TB HDD. $534+tax from NewEgg. The CPU is about 6X faster than what I'm using currently and the...

    AT&T replaced a lot of infrastructure after Hurricane Katrina but they didn't sell off their networks in Louisiana and Mississippi. Also, they're going to have to maintain infrastructure (one way or...

    Maybe also he can now claim that he's responsible for "bringing 5G to rural Mississippi."

    They didn't have a lot of choice. They committed to TV and then found out that Uverse wasn't a very good solution in many situations.

    I'll point out that Hood is the Democratic candidate for governor and is presently taking a lot of heat for his relationships with trial lawyers. He may have political motivations for wanting to get...

    T-Mobile came on pretty strong in PR following Maria, installing lots of band-71. I'd say their network in PR is pretty good now. USVI? Not so much. They seem to have a couple of LTE sites on St....

    As I understand T-Mobile's Carrier Freedom promo, you have to trade-in your current device and finance a new T-Mobile phone to replace it. Here's the T-Mobile document that describes it. As with all...

    They actually have done quite a bit around Mobile but it's all been mid-band, since CSpire & AT&T own all the 700 MHz licenses. (Just like here in the Bilioxi-Gulfport market.) I was hoping for some...
