    Upcoming phones that support T-Mobile Band 71

    The Oneplus 6 appears to support band 71. Launched today.

    Reasonable price for what it is, but Oneplus has a track record of dodgy software releases and questionable privacy practices. Dual SIM is...
  2. Do you think most of the former prepay stigma has disappeared?

    I know a few people who make well into six figures who use prepaid. Some of them boast about what a great deal they are getting.

  7. Going to be hard to replace ZTE and Huawei phones

    The OnePlus 6 might fit. It will be announced May 16. Leaks suggest a 6.28" screen and 3450 mAh battery. Still a little shy of 4000 mAh.

    The argument against that is that VoLTE and wifi calling reduce load on the network. AT&T is also building LTE-only towers.

    Google stops supporting XMPP on June 18th!

    The good news is that Google continues to invest in Voice. Many of us have come to depend on this service. I would hate to see it abandoned and...

    Another thing to consider is that Cricket has VoLTE and wifi calling for some phones, including iPhones. AT&T prepaid doesn’t have these features yet. I'm sure they are coming, but who knows when.

    Changing number on 5/100 plan?

    It is hard to know. Metro still has 4 for 100.

    Still, youíre right, getting the plan locked in now is the safest course.
