    I was a T-Mo customer during the switch to 3G. T-Mo was so far behind the other carriers deploying 3G, I think my first 3G phone was the 5th or 6th gen! :)

    Scared me too! Only a bunch of glowing Amazon (US) reviews from the SIMs sold there made me take the leap.

    Prior to buying the Three SIMs and changing to a newer plan, I used to use that same (or a similar) $10/month 2GB tablet plan for international use. (It was actually $20/month minus a $10/line credit...

    In retrospect, I probably should've gone PayGo, since we used less than 1GB data.

    Originally, I was on a T-Mo plan than didn't offer the free slow speed data roaming and texting, so I bought these...

    Yeah, it's kind of six of one, 1/2 dozen of the other between the UK carriers. Any of them would worked fine for my purpose.

    Like you, the most important thing for me was to be able to test them...

    I bought mine pre-loaded, figuring for two weeks abroad, I wouldn't have to reload if I bought enough data initially.

    Supplementing, not replacing. Band 71 is 600MHz so it goes through walls better than mid band (1700MHz/Band 4, 1900MHz/Band 2) but really no different than other low bands (700MHz/Band 12,...

    Cherry picking again?

    Clearly as those articles (and many more back in the day) show, there were a good number of people, including industry analysts that, despite the lack of a clear ITU...

    It's "nefarious" in that it was advertising/marketing BS.

    And it was misleading, despite no "official definition", but don't take the word of my dimming recollection for it (again, we're talking...

    Do you ever get tired moving the goalposts between your postings here?

    You insinuated I was unfair calling out T-Mo for calling their HSDPA network "4G" because the ITU had sanctioned the use of...

    In his magenta-tinted world, T-Mo can do no wrong, and any criticism of them is unfounded.

    As I've pointed out here many times, I'm a (mostly) happy T-Mo customer of nearly 20 years. (I signed up...

    They include "free WiFi" the same way they also include "free oxygen" to breathe while using their service.

    They don't provide any WiFi- they mean since you get no cellular data in the free plan,...

    Good point. Just like us "sad T-Mobile customers" who were told 3G HSDPA was "4G" because it was faster than than their previous 3G network.

    In the "so crazy it just might work" department, when I'm using a non-VoLTE or non-WiFi Calling phone on T-Mo, I use the T-Mo Digits app to access calls and texts over data.

    I've been with T-Mo for 18 years, and my experiences with them have mostly been positive. But the fanboyism on this board from a few individuals here is so incredible it's actually entertaining.
