    It's a big country. Where you at?

    Here in semi-rural central Virginia on the I95 corridor and surrounds, we had AT&T for years and it worked fine most of the time around town and out into rural...

    Yeah, the point I was trying to make and didn't adequately elaborate was that putting bands 71 and n71 on their existing and Sprint acquired towers, where the towers can take the weight and wind...

    I checked my S3 and S4. Samsung account is not in Settings > Accounts.

    I'm pretty sure I set it up on the S3, but not the S4. The S3 nags something about it occasionally. I don't use either phone...

    I did not mention that all of my lines are the AT&T LTE ones, not Sprint, and my Global line stopped working years ago.

    Do a factory reset without backup on the phone and start over fresh. Doing a factory reset will not wipe your phone service setup.

    You can try to stop the offending notification by going in...

    The end of the Freedompop fairy tale?

    New post made since my edits don't seem to mark the topic as updated.

    I have been following T-Mo since they were able to buy a moderate chunk of nationwide 600 MHz at auction. They have been lighting that up at a good pace. When they turned it on in my area on the...

    I think your experience is more relevant. My info was from some time ago. Maybe America Movil has stopped the forced paring of their branded phones and the SIMs that come with them. It could also be...

    The activity requirement is at least five completed outgoing calls of a minute or more or 5 MB data use a month. If you didn't make outgoing calls you could get deactivated.

    With some of the Super Fans on timeout from posting hyperbole and nonsense we have drifted far from the topic. I guess without nonsense to refute there is not much to discuss.

    All of that is too OCD for me. I am a charge-at-bedtime and don't worry about it kind of guy. My phone batteries last longer with good runtime than I want to keep using the phone - several years.

    I have not heard of anything new on the low cost end since this topic started in 2016.

    Page Plus appears to still be the lowest at $10/120 days ($2.50 a month). Usage charges from the balance are...

    Interesting. What MVNO is that? The prices mentioned are bordering on postpaid level.

    Otherwise, as several have mentioned, most don't notice any problem with being lower priority.

    As I understand it, Tracfone branded phones and the SIMs that come with them are locked to being paired. They have actually lightened up somewhat over the past few years so that they allowed you to...

    I don't recall ever seeing Verizon saying what their MVNO deprioritization is, if any. Though, my guess is that MVNOs do have somewhat lower priority for LTE data speed. I think the real answer is...

    I believe this also implies the answer to why the carriers won't sell widespread unlimited or high limit wireless Internet for wired replacement use. They don't have the network capacity yet....

    Is it really that bad in major metro areas? I try to stay away from them. I did spend a few nights in DC and Reston/Herndon recently. The hotel Wifi was garbage. My old basic Velocity AT&T hotspot...

    My guess would be when the marketing department and hyperventilating tech geeks turned the amp up to 11.

    The reality is that 5G is somewhere between faster improved and game changing - probably...

    That option has always existed. Just walk in a carrier store and buy what they want to sell you. It's simple and a lot of people still do that. You can find better values, but it requires study and...

    Technically, it sounds like what you are looking for is a plan with a high speed data cap and unlimited throttled data. A true unlimited data plan is unlimited and subject to deprioritization during...
