    As I said in the Colorado thread, it's not about "getting things" as much as getting guarantees to insure that the potentially anti-consumer parts of the merger (price increases from lessened...

    I'm not sure "handouts" is fair, though. If you assume (and yes, I know what happens when we ***_u_me!) that the AGs objected in the first place because they thought the merger would harm consumers...

    It's a state of 1 million people, and they have 150 state legislators. When I was a kid, I thought it was wild that my state senator lived on my street. When I got older, I realized everyone's did! ...

    Yup. We need reprogrammable "soft radios" far more than we need software-based SIMs!

    The depreciation of 2G is a relatively recent phenomena, however, and 4G/3G dual SIM phones (as well as dual-LTE phones) have been available for awhile. The problem with most of them, however, is...

    I'm afraid you might be looking at this through an Apple-colored lens.

    Dual-SIM (at least dual-physical SIM) isn't a flagship feature by any stretch of the imagination. My first dual-SIM...

    I'm not suggesting it wouldn't be easy or cheap to implement. I'm suggesting that it simply won't happen on a large scale, because wireless carriers don't want it to happen, and they're still there...

    I'd like to see that too, but just as dual-SIM never became popular in the US, I doubt dual-eSIM will either.

    The only reason you have a "dual" eSIM/physical SIM phone now is that we're in the...

    I opted to forward to a Google Voice number instead. This gave me the option to either answer the call using data while overseas, or let it go to voicemail and then receive a transcription of the...

    But if DISH only covers 70% of the population, how will it possibly be viable against the (now 3) large, more or less equal carriers?

    It's impossible to survive and compete if you're slightly...

    From checking out old threads here on HoFo, it looks like Airvoice only allows conditional forwarding on monthly plans, not on PAYGo. That's the end of VVM for you, unfortunately.

    Third-party VVM doesn't make a charged call to retrieve your voicemail. It doesn't use your carrier's (Airvoice) voicemail at all.

    Here's how it works. Most carriers support a service called...

    I own a bunch of ExxonMobil stock, but it doesn't mean I drive a Hummer around in circles in my spare time to increase corporate profits.

    Plus, if you mostly stick together, one of you can buy the high speed data pass, and the other one(s) can tether to the pass holder when needing to use faster data.

    Does H2O know/care what device you are using? I've only used H2O once (for a pet tracker) but I don't recall having to give them an IMEI to activate the SIM.)

    In any case, the last info I read was...

    While your information is correct as far as it goes, the OP specifically mentioned calls/VMs that came in while their phone was powered off. Cell phones (even Motorolas!) can't capture that info when...

    Depending on how much data you need, T-Mobile offers a prepaid data plan with 2GB of high speed data/month for $10/month. After the 2GB is used, data slowed to 128kbps, which is still quite usable...

    You're literally comparing Apples to Apples, though. The rest of the cell phone manufacturers don't stand still either. The battery life and camera mprovements may seem like giant leaps vs. last...
