    LTE cannot do 150Mbps on 1.25MHz, which is what the minimum deployment of 1x/EvDO is.. LTE can only do ~35Mbps on a 5x5MHz chunk. LTE in the same space as a 1xRTT carrier, you're losing ~7Mbps of...

    I tried this a month ago when I played with a Verizon SIM to test the mmWave deployment.

    I put the SIM in an SE.. it provisioned but when I’d force CDMA, it would not do any calls/text/data -...

    Well, once T-Mobile and Sprint are combined in cities.. between American Tower and Crowne Castle, they should have “easy” access to become a force if they choose to do so over time, and if they’re...

    I mean if you know the phone number, just go to a store and get them to issue a new SIM for it. They will not charge anything.

    That also works here in the US when I go inside of a building AT&T does not work (this was taken in the Target near my house in Chicago, with an AT&T store attached outside)

    Yup.. T-Mobile I pay $50/mo but get unlimtied calls/text globally, 5GB overseas high speed hotspot, 15GB high speed on device data overseas, and unlimited mobile hotspot stateside.

    It's a tad more...

    That was per the request of AT&T.. AT&T actually did not allow it until fairly recently. I remember trying AT&T around 2012? and it still was not allowed unless you were on a certain plan. It's an...

    Sprint's network almost 100% overlapped T-Mobile, so this makes sense.

    Of course I do think sprint had some more prime macro site locations due to Sprint building in the 90s, and of course...

    Yes. I do this myself. I load up about six months at a time when target has a sale and it ends up being about $42.50 a month.

    Nah I get it. I chose to have T-Mobile in Ohio as the campground we used at the time in Morrow County had fine T-Mobile coverage (in fact, Cingular roamed on T-Mobile up there for the longest time...

    What happened on SoCal was a travesty. I remember that and going out there visiting my aunt in irvine with the (now Cingular) phone and it being absolutely atrocious.

    The "family account" went to...

    AT&T is fine in southern OH where it was only AT&T Wireless back in the day, south of pickaway county as AT&T Wireless had a solid AMPS network, and spaced for PCS anywhere near population. Where it...
  13. I mean they're giving you an extended free trial...

    I mean they're giving you an extended free trial sure.. but "long term value" no. that's my point.

    And the taxes/fees make up for the difference for an Apple Music subscription, and 10GB less...

    They’ve got a point, they’re temporary promos. Once the fall off they’re useless and long term “value” they should not be counted.

    The only one you can really count as included is Hulu+ bundle...

    I’ve had the opposite experience these last few years, but I’m primarily going to SE Ohio (where i’m from), and they’ve built out quite a bit down there, and anywhere else I’ve had any reason to go...

    I do not know... around the midwest, i've had okay luck with T-Mobile rurally (and even Sprint for that matter).

    I even now have places in Ohio that T-Mobile has better data/voice than Verizon in...

    An update on the plan, it does allow for mmWave where AT&T has deployed it as well!

    Well, in all fairness with T-Mobile you're getting more hotspot, unthrottled video without an upcharge, AND taxes/fees baked in - so it's actually considerably cheaper when you factor in those...
  19. Well, in all fairness.. the entire industry has...

    Well, in all fairness.. the entire industry has went to the "if you want cheap then do a family plan" structure.

    BUT, I also recall the time I paid Verizon $39.99 for 450min, $29.99 for data,...

    That's my point. 2.5-3.5GHz is going to be the sweet spot for the time being. It's neat I can get 3Gbps on the Verizon sim as long as i'm not breathing on it and getting a clear LoS.. but it's just...

    You'd have to flash unbranded firmware to the S7 Edge to get it working.. but it's just not worth it for such an old device.

    Sell it for what little bit it's worth and grab at least an S8 as when...

    I mean mmWave cannot even reach my outdoor balcony 1000' away because of a fully grown tree is blocking LOS. mmWave has it's place.. but other than eating battery to give great speeds if you've got a...

    There was one building in Columbus, OH where Verizon was weak, and going to a CDMAless device allowed me roaming on AT&T.. which has the business contract for that place and had DAS. I was luckily...

    Any unlocked Moto would be sufficient as well, as they usually support WiFi calling for just about any carrier you insert the SIM from. Just be sure the phone has Bands 2/4/5/12/13/66/71

    Well that phone you have (S7) is very old and is missing some T-Mobile bands thus not seeing "all" of the network.. AND because it's got Verizon firmware on it, it will not use WiFi calling with...
