    Yeah, my experience is mostly in small town and rural where the signal isn't that great to begin with. It could provide a lot of usable bandwidth expansion in more metro areas. I recently got...

    My experience with using Sprint on band 25 (1.9 GHz) and T-Mo with bands 2 & 4 (1.9 & 1.7 GHz) was that it does not do well at all inside buildings. I would expect band 41 (2.6 GHz) to be even worse....

    Don't know. The Verizon MVNOs started nagging about needing a new phone well before the original Vz CDMA shutdown of 12/31/19 (now 12/31/20).



    Good point about the T-Mo models having band 71...

    The T-Mo 3G shutdown has been mentioned recently. IIRC 2022

    The Moto G6 does not have T-Mo 600 MHz band 71 - G5 probably doesn't either. That is really good to have on T-Mo. It makes a big...

    I was able to experience the difference T-Mo 600 MHz makes recently. T-Mo was able to turn on 600 MHz here after a bunch of TV stations finally got moved.

    Before 600 MHz, at home on the rural...

    All the more reason not to rush to buy a 5G phone. Samsung would like to sell us a S20 for $1,000. I have better things to do with $1,000.

    It is very early days for 5G. I expect it will be several...

    Haha, Meh, yeah. I kind of prefer the old, horrible sound quality of cell calls. It discourages people from trying to engage me in long chit chat conversations. ;~>

    My free Test Drive ended 2/8. Thanks T-Mo.

    I put my T-Mo 200 MB a month Free for Life tablet SIM in it. It worked. Amazing. Will they notice at some point and disable it? Who knows?

    The G6 back is glass. No idea why they thought that was a good idea. It is not textured and I found it to be extremely slippery. I did not dare use it until I got a case for it.

    No big deal to me....

    Consumer Cellular uses AT&T and T-Mobile. Try to find out which the neighbor has.

    On your E5 you can find what it is using for voice by dialing: *#*#4636#*#*

    That will bring up a test/info...

    Thanks for the update.

    BTDT. The agonizing answer for us was that, at some point, there is no answer. We went through years of frequent very unpleasant calls and accusations that we wouldn't show...

    Not weird at all. Sprint is one of the largest junk bond issuers out there. It's more of the same. 7% is junk level interest. High quality corporate bonds are going for about 2%.
