    Hope you have better luck with this. Roku replied back to my ticket saying the issue was with NBC - and they could be right, I just really don't know.

    It's difficult for me to pursue this,...

    SyFy is owned by Universal, the same company that owns NBC (or somehow it fits all together).

    USA, SyFy, Bravo, Discovery, History (I'm sure there are others) are all NBC owned companies. I...

    Has Verizon changed their tune on allowing phones on their network? Admittedly it's been several years since I've done anything with Verizon.

    Used to be, Verizon would only allow certain phones...

    Try a Firestick. Unless there is something specifically that is only on the Roku that isn't also available on the Firestick. Or mix and match (use the Firestick when you want to watch NBC).

    I...

    Sorry, I didn't realize someone would take this so literally.

    I meant AT&T Wireless as opposed to their wired line/POTS system. Wireless in this sense was meant to be an adjective and not a...

    This is definitely a Roku/AT&T Wireless/NBC Universal problem. At least that's the only specific combination (and it is a rather specific combination) that presents this problem.

    Change the Roku...

    No, I made a snide comment in my post - it was rude. I should have thought before I posted it.
  8. Sorry, my post was rude.

    Sorry, my post was rude.

    AT&T prepaid offers tethering/hotspot. Whereas Cricket does not (or charges extra for it).

    There are some subtle differences like that. Say you don't really use that much data, but you want the...

    :white flag:

    You're right, I'm wrong.

    Carry on.
  11. I suppose folding might have been too strong of a...

    I suppose folding might have been too strong of a word. But I can see them merging into AT&T Prepaid (or vice-versa) because the things that distinguish Cricket from AT&T Prepaid are becoming fewer...

    That's a fair point.

    I qualified my post with "If this is true." And that is honestly the first I had heard of any of this.

    But you do have to admit that they are blurring the lines between...
  13. If this is true, then they are really starting to...

    If this is true, then they are really starting to blur the line between Cricket Wireless and AT&T Prepaid. Might lend a bit more credence to all of the talk that Cricket might be folding.

    (If...

    Cricket doesn't do that. But that doesn't mean that AT&T Prepaid doesn't.

    At one time I remember seeing a receipt when I paid my Cricket bill and it had a breakdown of the taxes and fees that...
  15. When you're talking about taxes and fees, are you...

    When you're talking about taxes and fees, are you referring to state sales tax?

    I wasn't aware that there were any taxes or hidden fees with any prepaid service. When a prepaid service is $40 for...

    The stock hotspot app should work if you have an unbranded phone.

    Not sure if unbranded is the correct word. If you turn on your phone and you see an AT&T or Cricket logo, then it's a carrier...

    Are you using just an unbranded phone?

    Are you using the stock tethering app or something like FoxFi?

    Did you have to root your phone, make any changes to the build.prop file?
  18. Sorry, I haven't read this whole thread, but it...

    Sorry, I haven't read this whole thread, but it dates back to 2015 so I doubt any of that information is relevant any more.

    I've heard that Cricket has started cracking down on tethering a bit...

    Since it's now after March 6th, has anybody on the old Unlimited Plus plan (the one prior to March 1, 2018) been able to add a hotspot device on this plan?

    If so, that would at least seem to...

    No, this was more of an example to illustrate the speed differences you can encounter between a wired connection vs. a cellular connection.

    A 10mbps fiber/cable connection is more likely to give...

    Because fiber is more likely to give you dedicated and consistent bandwidth?

    A fiber connection rated for 100mbps is more likely to give you 100mbps at any particular minute of any particular day....

    I think it's $20 per line (phone, hotspot, etc) after the first 2 lines.

    If you just have 1 phone (1 line) on the unlimited plus plan, then adding a second phone/device (line #2) will be more than...
  23. So if you have the Unlimited Plus plan (the one...

    So if you have the Unlimited Plus plan (the one that was released back in 2017, not this enhanced version that was released the first of March 2018) can you still add a hotspot to that for $20/mo...

    I just wish they would have carried over the Privacy -> Blocked caller list -> Unknown numbers feature from CyanogenMod. That's my one major complaint with LineageOS.
  25. It's important to note that bandwidth isn't free....

    It's important to note that bandwidth isn't free. Is it as expensive as AT&T and other ISPs would have you believe? Absolutely not. But the backhaul fiber feeding into a tower (or ISP) can only...
