    I think Sprint screwed up on a lot of fronts (e.g. WiMAX) that would have needed to change, but yeah, I get your point. I wonder how much of Sprint's budget was drained off by the costs of domestic...
  2. Since I live in an area where T-Mobile's only...

    Since I live in an area where T-Mobile's only low-band is 600 MHz, I would not pay money for a phone without band-71. If I was given one, that would be different.

    Just returned home from a little road trip from the MS Gulf Coast up to the Jackson area but rather than taking the usual route up US-49, we cut NW along back roads until we hit MS-13 and followed...
  4. T-Mobile needs a solid, basic LTE flip phone to...

    T-Mobile needs a solid, basic LTE flip phone to replace CDMA devices used by folks who aren't really interested in the current meta for phones. I don't consider a GoFlip or MyFlip to be "solid".

    A question about the Jimmy John's offer. Can they be stacked or do we need one Jimmy John's account for each code?

    Check out PagePlus Cellular.
  7. I keep one as my main phone and a backup active...

    I keep one as my main phone and a backup active on a PAYG plan on a different carrier. Since both accounts are SIM-based, the 2nd phone also acts as a backup for the main one in case it becomes...

    I have not seen any mention of Direct Connect by anyone at T-Mobile, which indicates to me that they have no interest in the service.

    T-Mobile is offering free replacement phones to their customers who use certain non-VoLTE devices.

    UP is a "special" place. I overheard a conversation between locals when one of them said, "I like to get my snow fences up by Labor Day." Sorry, but it would take a lot of global warming for me to...

    I assume the new phone is an Android? If so, I'd suggest you look at various call blocking apps. I used to use one called Advanced Call Blocker, (which does not seem to be on the Play Store now). It...
  12. Where Verizon has one of the two 850 MHz bands,...

    Where Verizon has one of the two 850 MHz bands, it effectively costs them nothing to keep a minimal CDMA service running because the band has some odd little 2.5 and 1.5 MHz extensions that are too...

    Shack and backup power? (Assuming DISH has any real plans to deploy.)

    I thought the iPhone 1 (A1203) (2007) was 2G/2.5G (GSM, GPRS, EDGE)
  16. T-Mobile's and Sprint's coverage footprints were...

    T-Mobile's and Sprint's coverage footprints were not wildly different in most places. Yes, there are a dozen or so Sprint towers around here I'd really like to see T-Mobile keep. Often their sites...
  17. Moved SIM to new device. No setup required?

    I moved my backup PP PAYG SIM from the MyFlip to my unlocked Moto G7 Power and contacted PP CS via chat to be sure it was set up properly. The rep just asked me if I could make a call with the new...

    It's a lot cheaper to use wireless to expand "cable's" service area than to string wires. And keep in mind, there's not just one side to the equation, the taxpayers stand to benefit from more...

    GSMarena shows 5 "flip" phones with LTE band 13, which would be needed on Verizon.

    True but I'm not party to the T-Mobile/Dish agreement, so I can't assume that T-Mobile just doesn't turn the surplus sites over to Dish "as is". I have not seen anything that says they have to be...

    What? Isn't DISH just going to take over the leases? :lol:

    No idea, unless it's to blacklist. Some people have been known to change the IMEI of a blacklisted device to make it "clean" again.

    And we all appreciate what a difficult job it is, keeping the forums somewhat peaceful.

    OK but CSpire sued T-Mobile trying to force them to continue Sprint's CDMA service for something like 4 or 5 years. That went nowhere. What's CSpire going to do now? Verizon wants real money for...
