    This pretty much happens all the time on Cricket, they get low network priority same as Red Pocket. It's to be expected with budget service.

    Personally I'd like to see "dealers" completely eliminated from the wireless business. They are an unnecessary overhead that increases the cost of doing business. Its not rocket-science to activate...

    Why is 15mbit embarrassing? That's incredibly good for mobile usage. There are people paying double for 3mbit capped service on Cricket. Comcast's base speed for home internet is 15mbit.

    Service-wise they are exactly the same. Xfinity does have some additional perks like financing, international data, and 24/7 customer service. Plus, you don't have to buy 1-year of service which is...

    Verizon collects and sells user data, they petitioned the FCC for the right. On post-paid you have the option to opt-out, Visible doesn't have that option. Verizon wants in on the mobile advertising...

    You can buy a "Three UK" sim on Amazon for very cheap.

    Honestly, Sprint should sell off the Boost brand. T-Mobile should reorganize all their prepaid customers under the Sprint name and sell off Metro, Virgin, and Boost trademarks. The buyers of these...

    Why on earth would anyone buy a high-end phone to use on Cricket? The last thing you want to do is cheap out on service especially when its slow and throttled. A high-end phone deserves a premium...

    Offline Maps in Google Maps (Android). One time I went to Canada and the data wouldn't provision after crossing the border, I would've been lost without offline maps.

    I can't imagine any carrier selling ZTE phones regardless of the outcome. Amazon might be the only place to buy them.

    Probably because very few people use the feature. It causes a lot of problems when people upgrade or use crappy SD cards.

    It is nice to get great service in Mexico, because they certainly can't provide it in the U.S. I mean 3mbit service, in 2018, I can still hear the dial-up noises. :bulging:
  20. Nobody will have a sizable 5G network before...

    Nobody will have a sizable 5G network before 2020. It's just like LAA. Despite every carrier supporting the technology, no carrier has deployed it at scale. This is why its stupid to pay more than...

    Verizon really puts up a big stink over what kinds of devices and services they allow on their network. A feature like WiFi calling is nothing more than a software update, but its up to Verizon to...

    Given the lack of CDMA/3G, you'll still see a lot of "no service" indoors since Verizon's LTE footprint is much smaller. This is particularly important for emergencies because many rural routes have...

    Looks like Comcast is sending out emails regarding video throttling. Video will be 480p and hotspot 600kbit. In the future you have the option to buy 720p video.
