    $43/line sounds like when they were doing a “line on us” promo, as if you divide that out, it’s ~$20.

    I’ve always known it to be $50/line unless they were doing an “on us” promo.

    I did notice...

    That was me, and having used the Franklin device.. it's got a horrid radio and WiFi chipset, they're handing them out free... for a reason :lol:

    Now, a phone is possibly not going to be *that*...

    I mean, for my grandparents, i just shoved them on Vonage.. but they have a basic ISP plan to do emails/facebook/whatever.

    I could have done something "slightly cheaper" but for $23 after tax...

    I've still got an old grandfathered paygo plan that's only $10/yr to renew for those old devices. I did grab an LTE "flip phone" for when GSM is finally sunset and I can swap the SIM but i'm going to...

    It's like anything.. Device will make a difference. Cheaper devices will always perform less with LTE/5G and that's by design.

    They have to cut a corner somewhere, and it's usually with CPU/Radio.

    Are you a spam bot? That’s all I can come up with at this point.

    That’s literally the only way any of your posts make any sense or add any “value” to anything

    The franklin device is really cheap, and has a slow WiFi chipset in it as well.

    If you're getting 10Mbps from it, the phone will certainly be faster.

    I still keep an at&t line, on the $50 unlimited elite prepaid promo just to have a 2nd sim in the iPhone while TMobile is smoothing out the sprint integration

    I can say rurally, at least where I...

    Hey, I remember the days I worked at the carrier (Including the one being posted about here) and lived/breathed it. The kool-aid is just astounding haha

    Exactly. I love T-Mobile, but come on... I usually average ~100-150Mbps, unless i'm only on n71, then it's more like 30-50Mbps.. Still great usable speed.. but not the numbers claimed.

    BUT i do...

    I work on the road, using mostly my iPad Pro instead of my Mac now, so I need full speed data... and I gladly pay for it. The free line is nice, but $20/mo is not going to kill my wallet either, so...

    I mean when putting a voice sim into an iPad, T-Mobile knows the IMEI range apple uses for iPad and will throttle accordingly

    Android tablets, per se.. they don’t quite care about as much as they...

    Bingo.. this is why AT&T has not bothered with it yet, and Verizon is dragging *** on releasing it as well. The trade offs simply are not worth it for the amount of 5G hardware out right now.

    When...

    Let’s see some of those speed tests.. I’ve yet to see more than 100-150Mbps from 5G on T-Mobile (on my android phone, btw), and that’s bonded with LTE.

    Yeah, as someone who does the same.. you have to admit while Windows/Android is more "versatile" it comes with trade-offs.. and the exact reason Android cannot be my "go to, daily driver" device.

    It's easy for T-Mobile to know you're using an iPad, regardless of the country it came from (Apple has their own block of IMEI, and they do send them to the carriers so they know)

    You'll be fine.. B71 is just 600Mhz which is mostly 5G anyway.

    Band 2,4,12,66 is primary for T-Mobile.. please note Band 25 is "also" PCS like Band 2, so they'll use that as well (it came from...

    Samsung has a menu to do it.

    What my theory is, T-Mobile is testing this "other" MNC as a dual MNC setup on the T-Mobile side so they do not need to use ROAMAHOME for Sprint subscribers when they...

    OH! I thought they were doing DSS, but still.. 5MHz is better than nothing I suppose? until the iPhones come out later this year. It's going to be interesting to see how that goes.

    I got B41 LTE for a bit (140Mbps DL, 3Mbps UL) but it's back to 2/12, 4/66, etc.. They must be getting ready to do a "mass shutdown" of Sprint's LTE assets and just shove everyone on T-Mobile LTE (I...
