    I've been to Dublin twice and have yet to set foot inside the Guinness Storehouse. All the locals say it's overrated. I'd rather sit in a pub and drink a pint.

    One thing I found in Ireland is that WiFi Calling would work in some hotels, pubs, restaurants, etc. but not in others. I could get VoIP apps to work on most WiFi connections. I attribute this either...

    I dislike the description of T-Mobile's international data as "2G" as it makes people believe that you are limited to connecting to 2G networks and the experience will be like trying to use 2G data...

    Yes. It's slow, about 256 kbps, although I forgot to run a speed test. In Ireland I found it completely usable for anything that did not involve streaming videos. I was even able to use VoIP apps.

    Maybe in first-world counties but there are many counties that don't yet have LTE, much less VoLTE. So, phones will still have to be quad-band GSM & UMTS.

    Not so sure. Just because they use CDMA on their own network doesn't mean that they can't roam GSM, UMTS or VoLTE networks. Does it?

    I gave my son the Redbox codes but if anyone wants any of this week's other stuff, just PM me. I'm, traveling and not in a position to use them.

    "Seniors" don't fall into a single category. You may find (among others)
    1) luddites who are capable but emotionally resistant to learning new technology.
    2) techies who were responsible for...

    I hope T-Mobile overbuilds all those markets and sucks all the oxygen out of USCC's tiny little lungs.

    Project Fi does something special which requires a Google phone that is capable of both CDMA and VoLTE. The problem is that Sprint's infrastructure is mostly not capable of VoLTE and T-Mobile is...

    In some cases, T-Mobile is incentivizing ($$$) early repacking. This seems to be primarily in either highly congested markets (e.g. NYC) or markets where T-Mobile lacks band-12 (e.g. Mississippi). I...
  13. Current status of T-Mobile - USCC roaming?

    What's the current status of roaming between T-Mobile and USCC? Where does LTE roaming work, where has it yet to be implemented. Does GSM roaming still work in Maine?

    I'm not so sure about this. There are 6 TV stations in the Detroit that have to be repacked, 2 of them (WLPC & WADL) interfere with blocks B, C & D.

    Unfortunately, the LTE bands on the Nokia 6.1 are too region-specific. For instance, the Americas version lacks bands 1, 3 & 8. So much for roaming.

    I don't know for sure but generally if they install two sites, one in Podunk and the other in South Podunk, both will be listed. They like to make the upgrade lists as long as possible.

    Good to see Bahamas. Batelco's roaming cost has been a sore point with many tourists. French Polynesia (e.g. Tahiti) is another welcome addition. Good to see Vietnam. Counting Wales, Scotland and...

    Yeah. Someone help me sort this out. I tried to add the BR credits to the DD app and was told that the card had expired. So, I couldn't add the "cards" to the DD app. The BR app took the first $2...

    Right now the BR app is saying "Gift card reloads are temporarily disabled....." I don't know if that's just for me or for everyone.

    I was once doing a survey in international waters between Pantelleria and Tunisia. I had my old Nokia 8110i set up with an Italian Prepaid and when we'd get within 18 nm (36 km) of Pantelleria it...

    Does anyone know how to gift the Red Bull to someone?

    I signed my wife up for the 3 months of SirisuXM and set up a BR account to save the credits as we'll be traveling and might pass near a BR.

    Good luck with Isle Royale, Denali, Everglades and the North Cascades NPs. The only service you're likely to see there will be via satellite.

    There's something to what you say. They don't...

    I've been in places in Florida where Verizon had almost no signal while AT&T worked great.
