    MetroPCS and Boost don't allow for roaming. Perhaps voice and text roaming, but certainly not data roaming. Same with other MVNOs like Mint Mobile (formerly MintSIM). Project Fi includes the...

    Looks like the phone has to stay on Cricket for 6 months as part of the deal, and ports from AT&T don't qualify.

    Still, if someone knows they are going to stay with Cricket for a while, that's a...

    Even the updated plan from T-Mobile is a good deal for two people who are always in T-Mobile's coverage area. Even Verizon is forced to include a similar plan.

    One benefit of Project Fi is that they are postpaid type accounts with T-Mobile, Sprint, and US Cellular, which includes domestic roaming. Very few MVNOs include domestic roaming, so if you aren't...

    Every carrier has unexpected outages, so every MVNO and prepaid service using those carriers have outages.

    I've used "slower chargers" and haven't had any issues. I did pick up a car charger that has both 2.1v and 3.0v USB slots in them, so it fast charges while in the car, plus my wife can charger her...

    Moto G5 Plus works on every major carrier, and the data only SIM works only with T-Mobile, so as long as it's unlocked it should work.

    It might even work locked, but can't confirm.

    Project Fi was never designed for high-data users, so 22GB of cellular data per month on any carrier versus Project Fi is not a fair analogy. I would even venture to say that, of the thousands of...

    Project Fi doesn't make much from their subscriber's data use, mainly because most subscribers work very hard to minimize their cellular data usage. Partly because of the $10 per GB.

    Not sure if Verizon made any other changes, but speed tests in this area (Waukesha, WI) during the day would average 2-3 Mbps, and now are consistently closer to 10 Mbps.

    I think Verizon can control international data usage. Part of the reason they can throttle after 500 MB. They may not have the same ability with domestic roaming partners.
