    The problem is that you're putting too much faith in the T-Mobile website. When it comes to phone capabilities, bands, roaming, etc. it's all screwed up. You have to have confidence in your own...

    Can you save today's Baskin-Robins codes? They showed just a QR code, no card number & PIN. I can extract a 15-digit number from the QR code but still can't enter it in the app because it has no PIN.

    I would not count the band 14 in congested urban areas like NYC, DC, L.A., Chicago, etc. First responders will keep that pretty well congested.

    I think this needs to be qualified as price competition will be reduced. The problem is that T-Mobile is currently unable to compete for the 5G customer and in many markets (e.g. NYC) is unable to...

    That must be very recent. I checked yesterday and it wasn't shown.
    Apparently fussing at them can sometimes accomplish something good.

    BTW. They seem to have activated roaming at the Loon...

    Last time I needed a issue elevated with a branch of AT&T I just had to stay on the line until the robot CSR asked if I was satisfied with her service. When I replied "No. I'm not satisfied." I was...

    There are few places where the combination of T-Mobile, Sprint and USCC will have service that Verizon does not at least roam. $20/mo seems like a bit of change just for coverage in maybe 1% of...

    You'd be surprised how much that can be reduced by simple steps like preloading Google Maps and watching videos when on WiFi.

    I've been pretty happy with T-Mobile and our $60 55+ plan. (Which is grandfathered, so I could never get that rate back.) It covers me in 95% of situations and my PagePlus PAYG covers me in 95% of...

    Then what you're suggesting is that SouthernLINC is paying T-Mobile's "rack rates" to roam and if they even allow others to roam (I believe they're required to) their "rack rates" are sky high. Where...

    Voice and text don't require a lot of spectrum. It would also only be a fall-back for people when they do something like take the short-cut from Kiln to McNeill via Necaise. What I'm saying is that...

    Data and texts are handled by the carriers. Phone calls are passed to the local PSTN which is regulated and often taxed on the call.
    A VOIP app, such as Skype or Viber will often work quite well on...

    Generally, it's not in the roaming agreements. Sometimes, yes. For instance, when AT&T bought out a small GSM carrier that T-Mobile had a roaming agreement with, those rates continued for the term of...

    There are prepaid international roaming SIMs (e.g. Piranha Mobile) but within the EU, it's probably best to get a local prepaid SIM as roaming is pretty standardized within EU. I took a look at...

    It's one thing to not allow roaming but quite another to expect roaming but not allow it. It's possible that T-Mobile is the real issue. They are really quite parsimonious about allowing us to roam...

    I don't know if Sprint phones are different but on most phones the data roaming toggle only applies to foreign carriers. (Carriers with a different MCC than the SIM.)

    Generally if a company changes the terms of an agreement mid-stream, the customer gets to reject the change and get a free "out". Exactly how this would play out, I'm not quite sure but it would...

    Yes but VoLTE seems to be a problem for them. They were insisting that T-Sprint should be forced to maintain a CDMA network for something like 6 years after the merger.

    They do really need something like Sprint's 2.5 GHz licenses to implement a decent 5G service. Unfortunately, the super-high bands (>20 GHz) had just not cut it, so far.

    It's been a couple of years but when we had Fi it almost always preferred T-Mobile. It may be based on local signal quality.
