    Right. The A835 I mentioned was tri-band GSM with UMTS-2100. The reason I got it was to be able to roam in Japan. Other than getting to the airport, I didn't use it in the USA. AWS 3G was...

    Had I not needed to roam in Japan, it would have been smarter to skip the first generation of 3G phones. That A835 was like toting around a brick.

    I found a 200+ page article on the subject of burdens in Sherman Act (antitrust) cases. While the nominal burden of proof rests with the plaintiffs (The ones alleging something is anti-competitive)...

    Having used satellite phones, it would surprise me if LEO technology could be made to support what we are used to in mobile phone service. The problem is that LEO satellites are generally low-power...

    Who has the burden of proof in this case, T-Mobile or the State AGs?

    An LTE phone can use either band-12 or band-71 but not both at the same time. When both are available, the only real advantage to band-71 is that it's usually less congested, hence faster. As far as...

    J.L. was the right leader to pick T-Mobile up off the pavement, to take on a broken industry and bring the company from dead last to a solid 3rd. He may not be the right leader to carry the company...

    I don't really disagree with the points you've made but would like to mention that T-Mobile plans to release a lot of Sprint's infrastructure (tower leases, shacks, antennas, etc), where they will be...

    Sprint's insane debt is an issue that T-Mobile didn't face, plus T-Mobile got $3B and a roaming agreement from AT&T. Added to this, the mobile industry in 2011 was hopelessly broken and inefficient....

    Both Dayton and Palm Beach have band 12, so band 71 is not a mandatory requirement. You might want to run a test of T-Mobile using a MVNO like Metro for a month to see how you like the coverage.

    Dish was the only company with a spectrum position to be able to carry it off. Until Star Trek's sub-space frequencies become available, they were the only choice.

    If you live in an area that has band-12 (700 MHz) service, band-71 is a nice-to-have feature. In areas where T-Mobile doesn't have a band-12 license, it's much more important. In some areas they've...

    I can appreciate nightmares from a distance. Homeostasis is just fine by me.

    I would like to see some band 41 used for LTE and some mid-band (~2GHz) shifted over to 5G. This would provide an additional layer of 5G service.

    It's about profit. It doesn't pay to deliver service to the last 2% (or even the last 10%). Delivering 5G to the 50% pays for everything else.

    There are times when renting and leasing are appropriate: to cover a short-term need is one. If I need to move a piano, I'll rent the truck and dolly to do the job. Another time it's appropriate is...

    Everyone needs to understand that this is a discussion of FCC Form 477 filings, which the carriers certify as being correct. Not the maps they show their customers.

    AFAIK, the base model G7 does not have T-Mobile's band 71. The G7 Power and Play models do.

    Coverage will be the same.

    One thing everyone should remember is that, in many areas, T-Mobile has not fully deployed their existing mid-band licenses. In some areas they may be running 2G, 3G &...
