    My clue is that Sprint has only had one profitable year since 2006* That year was 2017. Their profit from operations was ~$300 million. That is not enough to build out their network to be...

    That is an interesting turn of events - in a good way.

    So, in the near term at least, RP will continue the free plans. Presumably the strategy is similar to FP of giving a small amount of service...

    That Softbank can or should invest more in Sprint is a fallacy.

    Softbank has already maxed out their investment in Sprint. They own 84%. If they exceed that, Sprint will be delisted from the...

    I have had the GV app on two phones since they enabled it for Wifi calling. I did not make any data or battery adjustments for it. It works fine and I have not noticed any additional battery use.

    I used My Data Manager which worked well until I learned that they collect all of your usage data. That's a deal killer for me.

    I have also used 3G Watchdog. I don't know if they sell your usage...

    Thanks for checking my math. It doesn't change the cost though:

    0.14 MB x $0.01/MB = $0.0014 for a 40 second message, and that is still 7, 40 second messages for a penny.

    You get a pop up showing an inbound call and the tablet will sound the selected Hangouts ringtone.

    I just tried it with my Bluetooth earpiece, and surprisingly it worked, with one exception. I was...

    Make sure you do five completed outgoing* calls or five MB of data per billing cycle and the cent charges will stop.

    *I'm not sure if incoming calls count.

    Ok, thanks. I thought that VVM referred to the voice messages being transcribed to text. I get that with Google Voice VM.

    I did some testing of VVM on my Moto G6 with Tracfone-Verizon service.

    It would start with the DOJ informing T-Mo and Sprint that they would sue to block the deal. T-Mo and Sprint could drop the deal at that point without going to court. IIRC, this is what happened a...

    T-Mo has stated plans for a fixed wireless/home Internet service. mmWave can work good for that in urban areas with or without the Sprint deal.
