    The best 5G is what there will be a few years from now. All of the current deployments are at a very early stage of coverage and capability, with nothing particularity compelling to use them now.

    I just tried it with 7 digits and it...

    Good point. I have done this on several phones and it has improved the battery performance noticeably at least for a few months. I think six cycles is too much and hard on the battery. I usually do...

    Replacement batteries for older phones are a crap shoot because frequently the replacement battery is also old and may not have been stored well.

    I replaced the batteries in my Galaxy S3 and S4....

    Yes, VOIP calling can be blocked. I know my club does. I don't know how widely it is done. I haven't tried McDonalds in years. Was the McDonalds in the US?

    Generally GV only accepts ports of mobile numbers. Maybe ask in the GV forum. I think the answer is no for porting a toll free number, but I am not the ultimate expert.

    The GV number on an Obi is...

    I got one a couple of months ago. That's the way it works. You will not get an indication of signal level until you activate it.

    Mine works well.

    The Straight Talk ZTE cellular unit is definitely portable as well and does not need to be plugged into a wall phone jack - none of them do, cellular or broadband. The ZTE unit even has a battery...

    Isn't an ancient Telo the type of Ooma that connects to broadband Internet?

    Ooma has a new one that uses LTE cellular, but I doubt that any of the cellular ATAs have sufficient audio quality for...

    I get Vz band 13 most of the time at home. I am out on the rural fringe of suburbia and none of the higher frequencies make it out here and into the house. That's the way the band allocation...

    HoFo has been up and down for hours for me - mostly down. Getting Timeout error 522 with Cloudflare mentioned on the error page.

    Probably another DOS attack. I'll wager that HoFo knows about it.

    Yeah, my experience is mostly in small town and rural where the signal isn't that great to begin with. It could provide a lot of usable bandwidth expansion in more metro areas. I recently got...

    My experience with using Sprint on band 25 (1.9 GHz) and T-Mo with bands 2 & 4 (1.9 & 1.7 GHz) was that it does not do well at all inside buildings. I would expect band 41 (2.6 GHz) to be even worse....

    The T-Mo 3G shutdown has been mentioned recently. IIRC 2022

    The Moto G6 does not have T-Mo 600 MHz band 71 - G5 probably doesn't either. That is really good to have on T-Mo. It makes a big...

    All the more reason not to rush to buy a 5G phone. Samsung would like to sell us a S20 for $1,000. I have better things to do with $1,000.

    It is very early days for 5G. I expect it will be several...
