    Wearable for a cardiac patient.

    I'd like to discuss selection of a wearable device for a cardiac patient. I don't know much about the subject but I suspect that desirable features would be:

    Monitor pulse and blood oxygen

    I'm supposed to go on a tour of Greece in October, I'll be taking two T-Mobile (US) phones and my unlocked Moto G7 Power as a spare. I've recently read that Vodafone (Gr) and Comoste both offer...

    It sucks when people believe that they are buying an unlocked phone from Best Buy and it turns out that it locks itself to the first SIM they insert.

    Yes but AFAIK that just blocks the text from being displayed. I'd still be charged for it.

    Any way to block SMS?

    Last week I realized that I'd let my PAYG backup phone expire, so I restarted a new PAYG line using the same SIM but I had to pick up a new (to me) number because my old one had been recycled. This...

    Adequate spectrum caps should be in place to permit four viable, nationwide carriers. No single carrier should be allowed to "corner the market" on spectrum, even if that means some spectrum is left...

    Agreed. Engineering is an exercise in compromise. You can build a structure to survive just about anything, it's just about how much money you want to spend.

    When I was a teen-ager, everything above 500 MHz was TV, radar or space. Mobile phones were on a few channels around 150 MHz and maybe 450 MHz. Commercial utility keeps being found for higher and...

    During Hurricane Zeta we lost power and almost instantly T-Mobile became unusable, but not for the reason you might think. Their three towers nearest me all have generators. Their signal was as...

    T-Mobile turned on DDR (Disaster Driven Roaming) and suddenly everyone could roam AT&T. (I think the reverse is also true.) I know I've been roaming AT&T for the last couple of days here in the,...

    Hurricane Ida

    I suppose the reason that there's been no discussion about Hurricane Ida is either:

    No one suffered any negative impact or,
    Everyone in the New Orleans area is totally cut off, without power,...

    Not sure if that means a Note 4 (N910T) from 2014, a brand new Note 20 5G (SM-N981U) or something in between.
    The reason I asked about Sprint's network is that my T-Mobile phone spends much of its...

    How has service "degraded"? Lower signal? Lower speed? Dropped calls?
    Are you on T-Mobile's signal or Sprint's? (My phone spends a lot of time on Sprint's network.)
    What phone(s) are you using?

    I sold mine before LOYAL3 shut down. It was the path of least resistance. I'm pretty sure that the successor holding company was going to service charge the accounts out of existence.

    It's actually not about giving you, personally insanely blindingly fast speeds. It's about being able to deliver video speed to hundreds or thousands of customers in a small area, such as a train...

    You may be surprised to learn that there are at least 7 different models of the Galaxy Note 10+ with differing levels of compatibility with T-Mobile. To offer any help we'd need to know the exact...

    But the ability to shift load to band 41 when within range will improve the speed for people who are out of band 41's range by unloading the other bands.

    Look at the model number. Is it a SM-G973U? If so, it should have LTE bands #1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 13, 14, 17, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 28, 29, 30, 38, 39, 40, 41, 46, 66 & 71. The bands used for LTE...
