    I carry two phones as I do not want to use my personal phone for work purposes. I will say that the LG G8 works much better on B71 than the 6T I had. Work phone is a verizon S10e which I really like...

    Look on Swappa and get a used LG G7. I wouldn't go for those listed as fair but if you look you can probably find a good or mint one that is around $150. I just bought an LG G8 on there for $275...

    The coverage maps even show it to be a bit weak in Wausau proper. Hopefully they add more towers in the future and maybe some B2. I guess if the Sprint merger goes though, the Sprint towers in the...

    My experience is the same. No real difference between the B12 and B71 which is not totally unexpected with the frequencies being similar (600 v 700). Where there should be a big difference is B2/B4...

    I sure wish T-Mobile would add some towers along US-27 from I-75 to South Bay. They can add 600 along there but the towers are still too sparse to be of much use. I was in an area of Weston where I...

    That is interesting as I have months where I use many gigs of data on Viaero. Often those are consecutive months. No rhyme or reason to the enforcement I guess.

    It does not look like the Pixel 3 is on the list for USCC roaming as of 6 months ago. That list does not look to be actively updated. So if you see partner coverage, you may not see any service in...

    Which phone are you using? That will determine if you have access to USCC roaming. If you have access to USCC roaming, that roaming will be treated as if on T-Mobile. With a T-Mobile SIM, the phone...

    Interesting as when I pull up the map I see partner coverage in that area. The roaming would be on USCC if your phone is compatible. USCC roaming is treated as if being on T-Mobile so no 100 MB...

    I travelled I-35 from KC to Des Moines, the I-80 east to IL from there a few months back. I-35 was mostly roaming or it would drop to 2G on T-Mobile. A few miles out from Des Moines my phone finally...

    I am guessing the roaming terms for T-Mobile are not bad as it is not restricted on USCC. If it was like Union Wireless where it is extremely limited, I would say roaming is expensive for T-Mobile...

    The coverage seemed really spotty. It doesn't seem like the goal was continuous coverage along I-80. If it was I would say T-Mobile failed in the first attempt. It is really similar to the coverage...

    I didn't join the caravan but I did make it for the celebration which was great. The Big Boy will likely make it to Topeka and KC just like 844 a few years ago. It will hopefully be much easier to...

    Calls worked fine on roaming in the area so no need to carry an extra phone. When travelling I rarely ever completely lose voice service west of the Mississippi. There is usually always a roaming...

    I-80 Wyoming Coverage

    I just traveled on I-80 in Wyoming and the service was pathetic with a OnePlus 6t. Cellmapper shows signal traces but the best I could get for much of the trip across Wyoming was Union Telephone....

    This is great for the rural areas of the US which have access to 1-5 mbps usually only from one provider. It does mean that T-Mobile will need to fix the areas of no coverage they paint light pink on...

    That would be my assumption which will leave the network constrained if Sprint roaming was provided. It is likely the system will be used for legacy systems that are harder to upgrade...not phones...

    Someone with more knowledge will be able to answer this: doesn't T-Mobile use an antenna that can do both 700 and 1900/2100?

    I think it comes down to backhaul, channels available, and trying to stretch the towers a bit thin (20249 on cell mapper is pushed a bit hard). Around the capitol can be a real problem at certain...

    The hurricanes the last few years have been rather brutal to infrastructure. Really highlighting where the weaknesses are. Even if the cell tower would have been broadcasting, the backhaul would have...

    I saw the V20 on Swappa for around $130. Not as good as $19 but still a decent benefit. If only they would take the LG G4 I would get rid of that thing before it decides to boot loop again.

    I believe it is KSHB that is in the way. T-Mobile seems to be trying to push toward Topeka with 600 as I clicked an area just a few blocks from where I live and it pulled up the 600 MHz compatible...

    It is on the T-Mobile page that they will give $300 for anything from a OnePlus One to the OnePlus 6. From the wording it does not sound like it even has to be a phone on an active line. If that is...

    The way the licenses were they were able to meet the requirements with a relatively small network. I would guess a few of the areas you are thinking of would be NE, WY, MT, ND, SD, ID, UT, NV, and so...

    T-Mobile..."we are providing this new technology, that'll be $30 to activate the eSIM." They will find a way to raise the price over the $25 they charge for the kit today. The US carriers could...
