• Thread of The Week, Round 84



    It's time for a new thread of the week, our way of recognizing forum members for promoting valuable discussion here.

    Every weekday yours truly posts a morning briefing, including the most popular forum threads—that is, the posts with the most replies—for the previous 24 hour period. For reference, here are the briefings for the past seven days:

    Your Morning Briefing for Monday, July 5th, 2021
    Your Morning Briefing for Tuesday, July 6th, 2021
    Your Morning Briefing for Wednesday, July 7th, 2021
    Your Morning Briefing for Thursday, July 8th, 2021
    Your Morning Briefing for Friday, July 9th, 2021

    Remember that the Monday briefing includes forum posts from the prior Friday, Saturday and Sunday, so all weekend posts are similarly eligible.

    In each briefing, forum posts are ranked by the number of replies (from highest to lowest). That's subject to change, of course, so I did a quick recount of replies for all forum posts in the briefings above. With 33 replies as of this posting the most popular thread started last week is:

    Mobile Hotspot / Tethering

    I was talking about converting the physical sim to eSIM card. I heard earlier I think that option was around but wasn’t sure if it will be in final version

    Yup, Reddit was lit up with reports of that, especially in the morning, and there was sporadic reports throughout the day. It seems better now: https://downdetector.com/status/att/

    Thanks—I also wonder if this has to do with some of the new spectrum lit up from the Dish partnership. I doubt we'll know the exact reason, but it does seem like a strange occurence.
