    Travelpass gets you some full speed data (like 0.5GB a day) then throttled to either 128 or 256kbps. $10 a day.

    Honestly the costs high enough if your spending more than a few days overseas...

    Heh, the two left here are 41 and 49. Probably scuttles it for now. T-Mo just bought IWireless this year, which had some 4G LTE but many 2G and 3G (not even HSPA+ as far as I know) areas, I assume...

    Well, for me, I think T-Mo could compete fine without the merger; they seem to be doing a good job buying up spectrum and more importantly making use of it. Sprint has plenty of spectrum, but their...

    Well, from old old hofo discussions from back in the day, my recollection is on the runup to the analog shut down date, VZW kept counting analog in their dropped and blocked call stats, and so were...

    I use Verizon but do want to see this Sprint/T-Mo merger go through. It seems like Sprint's been kind of treading water literally for a decade or more, and it'll be nice to have T-Mo make good use...

    I don't think just putting a (D) or (R) (or independent or third party name) up there is advancing any agenda. I found this post very informative; after all, the most I'd really heard before...

    They'll have cdma down to 1 channel probably. But 1 channel of cdma can carry like 60 calls so I don't expect the service to start busying out or anything until it's shut down. They do have new...

    I don't live in nyc or have start unlimited. But I can tell you regarding deprioritization... vzw says to expect 6-12mbps "typical" lte speed. I found deprio doesn't kick in at all above 12mbps and...

    It means probably it's an area with sprint coverage but no verizon. Can't be too many areas like that given sprint's coverage but there are a few areas vzw roams on sprint so they do exist.

    Looking on Verizon's site it looks like they've got VoLTE flips now running down to about $80 (they had been about $120 at the cheapest just a few months ago so that's more like it pricing-wise.) ...

    Partially a legal limitation too. When the FCC was planning out the cellular stuff back in the 1980s, they were concerned about the scenario where a) a local cell co builds out good coverage b) a...

    Do you know is bluegrass still full speed on newer plans or 128kbps roaming? I'm curious but all local potential roaming in my area is us cellular (not lteira) so I can't find out.

    To expand on that, if you have number 123-456-7890 and VZW doesn't do business in area covered by 123-456-xxxx then the number can't be ported.

    It's "2G speed" , 128kbps throttle. It's not limited to 2GB or a 2G connection, you'll be rockin' along (yeah...) on 4G LTE at 128kbps if they've got it and 3g or 1x otherwise.

    LTEiRA areas had...

    I think it's very likely the roaming partner is US Cellular.

    Verizon has no data roaming limits; they don't even have a "50% rule" like a lot of carriers (who can terminate your service, or cut...

    Didn't know the LTE extenders let you set a bandwidth limit. Good to know... I did wonder a bit about that, given how more likely it is for the lte microcell to be faster than the backhaul compared...

    Is it not possible to put IMS info onto the SIM? It seems like if the GSM-style authentication info, APN (for data), MMS info (for picture messaging) can be stuck on the SIM that IMS could be too. ...

    Look up 900mhz Motorola Canopy. They've been selling a line of 900mhz gear for like 10 or 15 years, I don't know if they're still in common use but they were 2 or 3 years ago.

    To be honest, I noticed this going from older phones with band 13 only LTE and no VoLTE (so probably showing 1x signal strength) to my present KeyOne, using band 4 (pretty regularly), 13, 2, and 5. ...

    Take it with a grain of salt. If you see low reviews because of a specific problem on some model, that could be a problem; like if the Go Flip 5 actually has poor audio quality needless to say that...

    I read Ericsson has just figured out how to get their hardware to share 4G spectrum with 5G; both involve using timeslots, and it simply (well probably not too simple..) can run 4G modulation one...

    Well they wouldn't intentionally hose voice service. But if they're running like 1 GSM channel, that's 8 timeslots and several of those timeslots will be used for control channel uses. I could see...
