    Yes, will likely be closer to full speed data, but will be costlier. If you really need some full speed data, T-mobile offers $5/day full speed data instead of the free throttled data. But you will...

    That will work. T-Mobile will have all of those places covered, though it’s only 128Kbos (the USVI and PR will be LTE). The good news is that it’s free, and useable if you’re patient. It should meet...

    In the network mode settings, does the Umidigi have a no CDMA option? I am not familiar with that phone but many non-carrier based Androids can be set to LTE only or LTE/WCDMA/GSM (note that...

    I have the $10 Postpaid Mobile Broadband plan which is 2GB LTE + unlimited texting, then throttled to 128k. It also includes international roaming as noted above.

    It will work in a phone, but I...

    Thanks for the advice -- clearly I was "chatting" with an overburdened off-shore rep last night, who might not have actually issued the credit they said they did. I'm going to give it a few days,...

    I am in the midst of those "beginning pains" with their billing process, which seems worse than I expected. They seem to be "a bit all over the place" when it comes to their own promotions. The...

    That should work fine as the device is subsidy locked to T-Mobile, just like any other device they sell in store. Your 6GB data plan would be akin to my iPad plan — a T-Mobile mobile broadband plan,...

    Anyone buying in when the prices rose in the mid-2000s definitely bought into a FOMO scenario and should have done the math on the cost and return.

    That said, NYC was ripe for competition. The...

    And do the same with A T-Mobile preloaded that should be $15-20 with 6gb or 10gb. Plan for a month.


    If you’re thinking about an MVNO, I might see if there’s a preloaded SIM option for that...

    If you're currently a Verizon customer, this is how I think this works:

    If you buy one Pixel 4 as an upgrade on your current line, you get a $300 bill credit over 24 months ($12.50/month) -- this...

    No new T-Mobile phones for my family members, since no joy for those not adding a line or on Simple Choice plans this holiday season. For that reason, that business has gone elsewhere and my voice...

    I called them and was told what the other person was told -- that I waited too long to activate and I'd have to wait another 6 months before I was eligible again.

    I finally opened my Test Drive box, anticipating I'd use it when we were on vacation after Christmas. As I noted above, the SIM wouldn't activate -- it takes me to an activation page.

    Putting the...

    Reading this caused me to open the box on one of these and it also wouldn’t activate. So I can corroborate the inability to activate one of these that’s been sitting around for probably a couple of...

    Unfortunately, legacy Sprint is still in a no-win situation for the consumer.

    I 100% agree, but Sprint didn't implement the RUIM/SIM in a thoughtful manner, nor did they properly plan for the future.


    Recognizing a RUIM looks like / acts like a SIM (but isn't quite),...

    Well, I never had AT&T postpaid, but in the 5ish years with T-Mobile, I have had tons of billing issues. To this day, my SimpleChouce plan online shows $140, less a 10% discount for a net cost of...

    Insurance is a big money maker for the carriers -- that's why they push it so hard. The older the phone, the less cost there is for them to replace it if something happens. The age-related...

    You should try the coverage out for yourself. There is no roaming or sharing of the Sprint towers yet for t-Mobile customers yet, though I am hopeful that will change fairly quickly.

    My wild guess is that it will be integration related, like aligning the Sprint and T-Mobile plans in some fashion, and possibly aligning the taxes included for certain Sprint plans, and may also...

    Well, FWIW if all the state AG’s settled that way it would be a fine outcome. Coverage is a good thing, and would make the new company have a “Truly Nationwide” network.

    That second phone is network locked to AT&T -- you can use a US-based AT&T MVNO's SIM in it, but not a non-US carrier's SIM (or a non-AT&T based US carrier).

    Truephone doesn't use AT&T SIM cards,...
