    Considering that the SIMs are treated identically these days, I wonder if any SIM swap would've triggered the change. Usually that message seems to have been related to VoLTE/Wi-Fi calling not...

    This - at some point about a year and a half ago, Cricket redesigned their SIMs and SIM kits where the SIMs were all-white (they came in SIM kits that were all-green). These were already provisioned...

    This is absolutely right - this was done not because MetroPCS was the stronger company initially, but as a way for T-Mobile US[A] to buy MetroPCS and go public without the complex IPO process. Here...

    I switched my line originally by ordering a SIM card online from Cricket (also took care of preparing the port process, so when I got the SIM, I clicked the activate link in my email). After...

    Yep - since the break-down of pricing is not $25 x 4 or $25 x 5 (although many of us think of it that way), it's nice that adding a fifth line is only another $25. If I remember correctly, anything...

    While it's not supported on every phone, I always get VoLTE on mine, and when calling Cricket, AT&T, or Verizon customers who also have it, I get HD Voice. The footprint should be the same as AT&T's...

    I agree with your point and I think there's differing attitudes on these threads (I'm more in your camp that it's a periphery thing, but certainly want to take advantage of a feature if it is...

    In my case, Wi-Fi calling is handy at work, where I have a lot of places that are awful on all carriers (outdoors and in most buildings, AT&T/Cricket are fine). They'll never build to cover some of...

    The phone itself may play a role in signal strength, too, but if others with AT&T have lousy service where you work, Cricket will be the same. Likewise, it sounds like if there's a Verizon...

    I think the big thing hurting Xfinity Mobile has been its parent company. While there's a good value proposition of bundling your home internet and cheap phone service on a good network, a lot of...

    Unlike Virgin Mobile going iPhone-only, it's looks like Visible is starting out with just supporting iPhones because from a carrier perspective, all models get provisioned and set up the same way. ...

    Yeah, that's the weird thing - it seems Verizon has no problem activating an unlocked 8, 8 Plus, or X with an Intel modem, but the 7/7 Plus still have to have the Qualcomm modem. I suspect they have...

    Verizon has relaxed the restrictions a bit and as far as iPhones go, any unlocked, compatible one is allowed. If it's made after the split of having models with Intel or Qualcomm modems (7/7...

    1) Coverage/service: in my area, AT&T service is pretty good, and even though I work in a weird area that tends to fall back to HSPA more often than not, my phone works and things have been...

    It actually has VoLTE, and only runs on Verizon's LTE towers (no CDMA support), so I wonder if besides offering an option to compete with some discount services, also is a test to see how good...

    After reading that TechCrunch article, it really is reminding me of AT&T's launch of Aio, minus the retail footprint. The idea was to sell no-frills AT&T service at a lower rate and also downplay...

    I think what efparri means is that while the amount you pay is the same, in the example, less money is going to your carrier in State B (more taxes going to governments/regulatory bodies). It's just...

    Yeah, they're leaning on the app heavily in marketing, leading me to believe it's like Republic Wireless or FreedomPop. I'm not looking to jump in any time soon, especially because I'd rather have...

    Visible...a New Verizon MVNO?

    Just curious if anyone had heard of this, as someone mentioned it on Reddit - looks like it's sort of like a version of Cricket's Unlimited plan (formerly Unlimited 2), but runs on Verizon (5Mbps...

    On prepaid, it's mostly sales tax and E911 fees, so it's still less than many postpaid options. You're hit with this if you pay monthly with a credit/debit card, but if you buy a refill, it's up to...

    Nah, it's worth pointing out that it is different than say, H2O. I've always agreed with your thinking on that. The question is, despite AT&T owning and operating the whole thing, it's a separate...
