    The problem is they don't "own" their spectrum, they license the use of the spectrum from the government. As such, if Sprint goes into bankruptcy, the government likely revokes Sprints licenses...

    From what I've read, you are better off not buying a 5G phone this year. The issue is that the current 5G phones apparently have a separate radio for 5G, so they use quite a bit more battery running...

    I don't believe Thursday will have anything to do with the merger, per se, since T-Mobile announced a week ago (Oct 30) that the merger finalizing is delayed until 2020. I do believe, though, that...

    Yes, I'm sure it was merely being "pro-consumer" that made them hold out until Dish promised them their wireless HQ would be built in Colorado. Though perhaps you can explain, how does an HQ help...

    This appears to be fairly clear evidence that the states aren't actually objecting to the merger, it is more they are looking for handouts, since the Verge is reporting that Dish has promised to...

    Colorado is dropping their lawsuit against the T-Mobile/Sprint merger. Colorado is evidence that the states are not really objecting to the merger, more that the lawsuits are trying to get things...
  7. Yes, Apple should be mentioned, though it does...

    Yes, Apple should be mentioned, though it does use an eSIM for the second SIM, also the Pixel phone has a similar set up. While the Pixel eSIM works identically, for some reason some carriers don't...

    If you buy the phone from the Apple Store outright (pay upfront) or use the Apple Upgrade program, the phone will be unlocked -- even if you bought a "carrier" version it is still unlocked, it just...

    Yes, the iPhone 8 does not have CDMA radios. This shouldn't matter very much, at all, since Verizon had planned on shutting down all their legacy CDMA this year. They ended up pushing it back to next...

    From what I have read, I seem to recall that T-Mobile gets all the towers and equipment. I wouldn't be surprised if there is something in the deal that gives Dish the first right to buy any towers...

    The groundbreaking feature of 13.2 is Deep Fusion support for the cameras, though that feature is only available on the iPhone 11 models.

    Just to be aware, Apple has announced there is a security issue with 13.1; basically if you are using a third party keyboard it will have full access to your phone -- regardless of what permissions...

    I would almost think the opposite, that this should be a reason to "fast track" (if you can say that about a merger that has already been 15ish months) the merger. By approving the merger, you get...

    Also, it appears the Pandora offer doesn't work if you used the previous T-Mobile Pandora offer, that expired last month or so.

    I agree, I'd go with the 11. The "extras" are worth the extra money over the current price of the XR (faster radio, WiFi 6, wide angle camera and the camera improvements, etc). And, as eduschean...

    It's because it is difficult to do reliably. Part of it is that the hardware alone does not determine how well the radios work, it can also depend on if the carrier supports the phone, such as how...

    I'm buying a Note 10. I couldn't resist Samsung's $600 trade in offer, with $150 credit for accessories on top of that.

    To me, the plans look decent, other than the loss of "free" plans; though it is good they grandfathered those of us that already use Xfinity. I think we all knew they wouldn't keep offering a "free"...

    I'm not sure I can completely agree with your last statement. I agree only in the sense that it is Charlie we are talking about. OTOH, he is getting several million wireless customers and very cheap...

    I doubt that T-Mobile will connect the Sprint network for current customers. Instead, I expect this to be similar to the MetroPCS merger. They'll largely first try to add Sprint's unused spectrum...

    It will be interesting to see what happens with that case -- though I question if it will stretch out to December. I suspect T-Mobile will file a motion to dismiss, both on the claims that the states...

    Two notes this morning. First, it seems my speculation was correct, Fox Business reported that the delay in the Justice Department announcing their approval for the merger was to get the 17 state AGs...

    From what has been reported, Boost will be sold to Dish, with the idea that Dish will become the 4th national network. I'm guessing little will change immediately, since Boost will continue to be...

    One thought I had is that perhaps some of this "extra time" is to get the states to end their lawsuits prior to the deal being officially approved. While I haven't heard rumors to that effect but it...
