    Actually, the way the mandate was originally done is as follows: If the carrier chooses not to build and provide service (using their owned, licensed spectrum) over a period of years (i.e. 7), then...
  2. What I'd like to see is a requirement...

    What I'd like to see is a requirement (geographic) that carriers deploy in a real way the spectrum they own. i.e. Need to cover say 70% of the geography you're licensed for. And by this I don't...

    I guess network expansion depends a lot on your definition. For me, I'm interested in seeing the footprint (geographically) that I can use my phone expand.

    The reason I make this distinction: ...
  4. Thank you

    Thank you for the informative and thoughtful reply. I did advise my brother to flip to Verizon proper even if he has to pay a higher rate. i.e. In many places at least for basic coverage, some...

    Some of my family have Sprint, and my wife and I did until about 2 years ago. Here in Oregon, Sprint made a PRL change a couple years back that made it extremely difficult to roam on Verizon. This...

    Replacing a phone

    So simple question here. My brother has two original SERO premium lines (that had been upgraded from the oldest version of SERO). He has two iPhone SE's from about 3 years ago.

    Now before...

    I appreciate the comments about the weather radio alternative (or as you say lack-thereof)-- at least in terms of some practical use.

    I still believe my WEA alerts are broken at least in my area....
  8. Not intended behavior

    Agreed. I'm coming to the thought process from various posts that my experience is anomalous. For example, other xfinity mobile users in other parts of the US who do receive WEA alerts. So it's...
  9. Virtual network

    I'm used to 'virtual networks' from years of using the likes of Sprint. At times much of Sprint's geographic coverage nationally was achieved by roaming-- and at times, all included. i.e. the old...
  10. Good reason to choose and keep Verizon Wireless

    I was a Verizon customer for many years. I got lured in to xfinity mobile due to cost-savings. Xfinity mobile is a Verizon MVNO, so the coverage area as been the same.

    Anyway, there's a fire...
  11. Xfinity (Comcast) Mobile- lack of government alerts! Yikes

    So I used to be a Verizon customer for many years. Xfinity mobile is a good deal in my case. I don't use a lot of mobile data -- mostly wifi. Anyway, I switched like 6 months ago to Xfinity...
  12. WEA Government Alerts- a good reason to use Verizon

    So I was a long time Verizon user. No issues really, but Xfinity (a Verizon wireless MVNO) lured me away with lower cost.

    Today in my area there was a fire near work. More than 50 acres burned...

    I took your text "And honestly I'm tired of trying to explain it." to mean that you had taken the time to explain it once.
    My bad.

    I took some time to look through your previous posts. I found none from you in HF on this topic.
  15. Will true 5G (millimeter spectrum) work at all?

    Not trolling. I think this is a valid question.

    Early on we have the discussion that 5G will be based on spectrum in the millimeter spectrum; 28Ghz, 39Ghz. High-band spectrum doesn't...

    Quick trip report- Alaska Inside Passage

    This year I just brought a couple of Verizon post-paid phones cruising inside passage and brief visit to victoria.

    Both iPhones, latest iOS.

    1) my trick to turn off roaming didn't work. ...

    This is my first summer travel without Sprint. In my home state (Oregon), roaming has just become too hard to make work. It may be that the device is clinging on to a faint Sprint signal, but the...

    One last thing - vague memory is even att lacks decent prices in Tanzania. In short if both equally expensive may not matter. Perhaps a local sim can be found there? Dan

    Verizon has a travel/trip planner website. Id check there. Verizon has roaming partners in Africa but often just default rates (read terrible pricing). One area ATT has over Verizon is better...

    No but... (a little off-topic)

    No but I have an iPhone X (256Gb). Boy do I feel stupid. It might be the worst iPhone I've ever owned.
    No fingerprint. I have to juggle my lunch while trying to pay with AppleID and get the...

    yes, I've noticed the disparity for many years (between maps and reality). In my home town of Eugene, OR -- one need only drive maybe 10-15 miles to find big areas of no coverage. If you go to...

    Agreed. It's also become less expensive to just roam over time. I think Verizon has either the $5/day travel pass, or one can sign up for the $40 100mins/100text/100Mb plan for the month if you need...

    If iPhone one can select airplane mode first, then enable wifi, and enable wifi calling in that order. The friend will see vzw wifi or whatever in the alpha tag.

    I remember the ATT TDMA shutdown in favor of GSM. Folks definitely got letters in the mail a few months prior to TDMA shutdown. There was at least one free dumb-phone offered. Of course those were...

    yes, I remember the $10 upcharge for Wimax. I also had Sprint SERO when it was $30 (or $25 in my case due to some whacky re-occuring $5/mo discount).

    For a long time one could not upgrade their...
