    I think Tom's point was that there's a lot of free WiFi.

    Well, in the cases I've seen, the cellular modules for On*Star or TeleAid or whatever, could have been made as field-replaceable units. AT&T could have continued a minimal 2G service in the same way...

    I guess that would leave Apple's only manufacturing facility in Ireland?

    Hopefully, China will be able to contain this bug long enough to allow for the development of an effective vaccine.

    What bothers me is what seems to be a lack of concern for long-lived m2m applications. Alarm systems can operate for 20 years or longer. I had to upgrade a perfectly good alarm system that was...

    +1 Unless you live and work in Manhattan, I really wouldn't bother for a year. The technology is just too new.

    According to GSMarena.com, these are the LTE bands supported by the S10 (SM-G973U):
    LTE band 1(2100), 2(1900), 3(1800), 4(1700/2100), 5(850), 7(2600), 8(900), 12(700), 13(700), 14(700), 17(700),...

    Which LTE band do they use in the Cayman Islands that you won't find on the S10?

    I don't know. Since he didn't actually say, it's pretty much up to the reader to fill the blank with what every garbage is floating around the gutters of his own mind. I think, "Crispy". That's all...

    Interesting and valid thought. T-Mobile has cut costs in many ways, including 1) more internet sales, fewer corporate stores 2) alternative (perhaps less-robust) backhaul providers and 3) more...

    I think we're discussing two different things. You're really into making VoLTE (HD) calls between carriers. I'm concerned that AT&T doesn't allow non-AT&T branded devices to use VoLTE on their...

    I believe that AT&T and Verizon want to pretend that VoLTE is something special and unique, so that they don't have to allow voice roaming at "reasonable" rates to competitors.

    FDD uses two dedicated bands, one for download, the other for upload. The widths of the two bands is decided early on and does not change. All implementations that I'm aware of use equal quantities...

    Probably the lack of CDMA roaming.


    Yeah..... maybe not. From what I've read the roaming will be Sprint-to-T-Mobile, not T-Mobile-to-Sprint.

    The problem with all FDD implementations (AFAIK) is that they are symmetrical. Usage is not symmetrical. There's a lot more downloaded than uploaded.

    It's all relative. I had wireless CSD and FAX lines (in and out) at one time. They were so much better than 1200 bps dial-up. With WAP I could get a lot done over GPRS. Expectations have changed.

    Unless the carrier owns the tower, they will have to continue to pay rent to the owner if the equipment is left in place.

    I guess I'm the only one who recalls Nokia's Symbian smartphones? As I recall, they were dead reliable. My Nokia E61 predated the iPhone by several years.

    You are, of course, correct. I just confused 26 with 41. By the time I thought about it, you'd already caught my error. Just reverse 26 and 41 in my post.
