    Both AT&T and Comcast have spent a lot of money...

    Both AT&T and Comcast have spent a lot of money in my city running fiber. They've been in my back yard a lot since there's a pole back there. But the prices are very high, about $90 for gigabit...
  2. I have Total Wireless, a Tracfone company on...

    I have Total Wireless, a Tracfone company on Verizon and it's been fine. Good customer service via on-line chat. As an interim carrier it's probably your best bet with the most data, the best...
  3. Sprint depends on CDMA voice roaming on Verizon...

    Sprint depends on CDMA voice roaming on Verizon to claim "nationwide" status. They also increasingly have AT&T LTE roaming. If you compare coverage maps of native+roaming, Sprint has more voice and...

    Must have been one of those Windows Mobile phones you were using.
  5. You aren't going to convince someone by...

    You aren't going to convince someone by explaining 1/rē. You need to actually show them the levels of radiation from various sources, including their mobile phones, their Wi-Fi router, their cordless...

    There actually is only token resistance. CWA opposes the merger because there will be significant job losses for their members, but job losses have not been enough of a reason to stop mergers in the...

    The issue is whether or not going from four national carriers to three national carriers will reduce competition and increase prices (or cause prices to not fall as much as they otherwise would). The...
  8. I think that some people are convinced by the use...

    I think that some people are convinced by the use of a field strength meter comparing emf from a phone versus from a cell tower. And perhaps the emf from their wi-fi devices and cordless phones.

    I can safely say that I have not eaten a Taco Bell taco in many many years. I do like the fish tacos from Rubio's, and on Tuesdays they are $1.75-2.00 each, regardless of which mobile carrier, if...
  10. It's not just cell sites. It's more than that....

    It's not just cell sites. It's more than that. Smart Meters for gas and electric which have been installed in many areas are also objected to. You can opt out but it'll cost you extra because they...
  11. I advise people to not bring up RF emissions...

    I advise people to not bring up RF emissions because if a site is denied, even for an unrelated reason, then the carrier can claim that it was RF emissions that was the basis for the denial.

    I was on Cricket, 5 lines/$100, with one unneeded line but since it was free I took it. But my coverage at home was poor. I was waiting for AT&T to provision a fake tree tower that they are supposed...

    There's a Howard Forum called "VZW Rants/Raves/Kudos" see: https://howardforums.com/forumdisplay.php/573-VZW-Rants-Raves-Kudos .

    I think that such a forum should be created for T-Mobile. Those...

    It's very hard to fight this with logic because it's all emotion. The fact is that an actual concern is the SAR from a phone held to your ear for extended periods of time, and the way for the SAR to...

    It's unlikely that it's locked at all if it's for Verizon, since it's not legal to lock phones that are used on Verizon's LTE network. I bought a Note 9 from Total Wireless (a Tracfone brand), when...
  16. When I recommend a carrier I look not just at...

    When I recommend a carrier I look not just at someone's own area, but areas that they are likely to go to. Obviously if someone is retired and going around the country in an RV they're going to...

    I don't know many non-Hispanics that would touch that stuff either. However, with or without a free T-Mobile Taco Bell taco, it's worth visiting the world's most scenic Taco Bell:...

    I didn't know that. I thought that the Xs Max, with the 4x4 MIMO antenna, would do better in fringe signal areas. even with the Intel modem, than the Qualcomm modem 8 Plus with 2x2 MIMO--obviously...

    Agreed, Verizon is boring and smug. No free Taco Bell tacos. No free Dunkin' Donuts. No free Redbox rentals. No free socks. No free Lyft ride. T-Mobile is more fun. I wonder how many T-Mobile...

    Agreed, but the vast majority of customers have no idea of the differences between modems. Also, the Samsung Note 9 was more than 200% faster than the iPhone X but only only 39% faster than the...

    When the royalties based on the price of the phone were agreed to probably no one thought that phones would be costing $1500. But it might have been better to wait until there was a viable Qualcomm...

    Uploading and downloading large video files is very common. When you have unlimited data there's no real reason to use Wi-Fi, even if it's available.

    I used to hear the "in the real world" excuse...

    I wonder how many Sprint sites are in areas where T-Mobile doesn't already have coverage. But the increased volume may require that the Sprint sites be kept active anyway.

    LOL. If you've ever been a public official, you know that you have to have a thick skin because you're always going to have someone upset with you. For three years I've been getting abusive e-mails...

    That works okay for most people using an AT&T or Verizon MVNO, but not for a Sprint or T-Mobile MVNO. The reason is that most MVNOs don't include roaming. Even for AT&T and Verizon there are areas...
