    There are a million choices out there. Depends on your usage and what towers you need access to. Visible seems to be the flavor of the week right now. $40 a month for Verizon towers and unlimited...

    You're not seeing any compelling features because there's little to no demand for it on this side of the world. Japan has a robust feature phone industry because people want those feature phones...

    I briefly worked for Cellular Sales (biggest Verizon retailer in the USA), and even they bought their phones at a discount. Samsung and Apple had the lowest margins, but they always bought them for...

    A good friend of mine also has a wife from the Ukraine. I think what he ended up doing was just getting some prepaid calling cards.

    I get some kind of glitch where if I activate a phone online then my phone shows up in a different family group--even though it's still in the same group. This stops the website from working...

    Cellular calls are regulated as a Title II utility by the FCC, so they receive the highest priority during times of congestion, regardless of whether or not they're initiated through an MNVO or MNO....

    This will mostly be a non-issue once eSIM's become more widely adopted and the carrier just regenerates a new SIM number.

    Probably not a big deal to most people these days because of the plethora of messaging apps out there, but while Google Voice can now do picture messages, it still can't do video messages.

    I've used Verizon Prepaid in the last year and currently use Total Wireless. If there is any deprioritization, I never noticed it. And if it's not enough for a phone geek like me to catch, the...

    Surprised no one has brought this one up, but you could always activate a Google Fi SIM if you don't mind spending a little more and just want some peace of mind. Yeah, it can be as high as $80 for a...
