    I could be wrong but I don't think T-Mobile actually supports "pay separately" family plans. If you join this sort of plan you are putting a lot of faith in the goodwill and reliability of people you...

    Cayman Islands is a "Simple Global" country. There should be no issues. Here are my hints for cost-effective international roaming.

    They pick a point for every census tract (e.g. centroid) and if that point has service, everyone in the tract is counted as having service. The reason is that data for recent censuses is only...

    The way they calculate if a person is covered is if a there is coverage in the census tract where they were enumerated.

    Hopefully, by then T-Mobile’s coverage will have improved to the point that I no longer feel the need to keep a backup.

    I just Google "big test download". One site is https://speed.hetzner.de. They just have different size .bin files. Download and delete right afterward.

    Videos and app downloads don't amount to much data use. When stateside you need to download some serious test files. There are sites for that.
    Otherwise, here are my hints for international roamers.

    I still keep my PagePlus PAYG because rural Mississippi is poorly served by T-Mobile. I used to get a little AT&T 3G signal at my sonís place but no longer. Only WiFi Calling works. T-Mobile focuses...

    Sticky: While I do want to know if a child is abducted...

    While I do want to know if a child is abducted nearby, it gets a bit annoying to get multiple, repeated alerts for something that happened 300 miles away at the other end of the state.

    I wouldn't know how to ID a Nextel tower. The Sprint-Nextel merger predates CellMapper.

    Some people report going a long time (e.g. > 12 mo) using the method you describe. Just turn data roaming off on your T-Mobile SIM. If you have someone back in the US who you trust doing technical...

    I know a guy who uses "3" (UK) and had problems roaming (with a S20) in the US. He could get data on AT&T and voice on T-Mobile but not the other way around. I assume that this was because he was...

    Note that this makes no sense until you realize that T-Mobile (US) has a history of calling 3.5G HSPA+ "4G". Which was roundly derided as "Faux G". T-Mobile has been shutting down their 3G network....

    My daily driver is T-Mobile but when I venture off onto the backroads I also carry a PagePlus PAYG that I keep active (~$32/year). PagePlus uses Verizon's network. Between the two, I'm pretty likely...

    The motto of cellular companies should be "We cheat the other guy and pass the savings to you." For years AT&T and Verizon offered "special discounts" to virtually everyone who asked. T-Mobile was...

    What is lacking is the alignment of the cross-linking lasers. Each StarLink satellite has four lasers to communicate with the satellites ahead, following and to either side. This will create a huge...

    I now have a Pace 5268 gateway that has a compartment for a backup battery but no battery. When I asked the tech if I could get a battery he replied that AT&T no longer supplied them.

    Whatever it is, it will be less drain than continuously searching for a signal and not finding one.
    I wonder if they plan to use 310-120 or a different MNC?

    T-Mobile has the G-block in Alaska but I'm not sure if the inclination of the subject orbits will reach this far north. Guam & NMI is interesting. Nextel had a G-block license in 2016 but it was...

    Range through a vacuum is different than range through a forest or even through air. The only practical limitation is spreading (r≥). Thuraya uses GEO satellites at a range of 22K miles. I've used a...
