    Since no one seems to have the same phone/situation, I'll report a similar circumstance but with a different device. I have a now ancient ZTE Zmax2, that I purchased as an AT&T Prepaid "GoPhone" and...

    This is mostly educated guessing, but bear with me...

    T-Mo throttles hotspot data on some plans to "3G speed", or 512Kbps, which sounds like the 0.5Mbps speed tests you're getting.

    On the other...
  3. I don't think you have that many options other...

    I don't think you have that many options other than you've already mentioned: some kind of VoIP (Google Voice, Text Now, etc) that uses data, or a traditional SIM that uses cellular minutes.

    If...

    I certainly agree, but the end of allowing new sign ups tells us all we really needed to know about the plan- it wasn't because AT&T actually wanted to help people, it was designed to foster...

    Not that this would necessarily solve your problem, but it's it possible your service is made worse by deprioritization? You said (I believe) you're on AT&T Prepaid. Would it be worth trying a...

    It makes perfect sense. This was supposedly an emergency plan for people impacted by the pandemic (as opposed to T-Mo's similar $15 plan that was offered to appease regulators so they'd approve the...

    I've had luck with any device running Android 6 or newer. Heck, most stuff will run on 4.4.

    Lots of people like to slam Android for "fragmentation" from devices with few or no updates, but ever...

    I'm surprised the Samsung honors those settings after you put the SIM back in. I'd have expected the SIM change would reset any mobile network settings back to the AT&T defaults.

    Despite the wide variety of choices (most of which don't apply because they are for different carriers- e.g. "CDMA Only" when using T-Mo or AT&T) they suffer from the same issues as the choices...

    I don't think anyone is suggesting they'd like to only use 3G; certainly I wasn't. I was just saying 3G is my secret weapon when dealing with congestion- no phone I've seen automatically switches...

    That's weird, since PAU never cost $17 for anyone, AFAIK.

    Originally it was $20, back in the day when T-Mo sold subsidized phones on two-year contracts. When T-Mo ended contracts and subsidies,...

    Yep. It's just stupid. Why not just give 10% off any purchase over $50 and dispense with these hoops we're forced to jump through?

    The problem isn't really Target's system, but a badly worded promo. It's not $5 off of $50 cards, but $5 off "when you spend $50 or more", so $5 is the max discount you'll get off of any one purchase...

    I've always found T-Mo stores the friendliest of all the big 4 corporate stores, but frankly the linked article and it's anecdotal sample of one store of each carrier was a beyond stupid waste of a...

    Yes. The two 800-lb gorillas came to an interoperability agreement.

    Hopefully, T-Mo's merger with Sprint gives them a seat at the gorillas' table.

    Sorry if you thought I was jumping on you, that certainly wasn't my intention.

    Unreal is a FreedomPop brand (though they've been purchased by RedPocket.)

    FreedomPop has a long history of...

    Fair enough. OTOH, it also can be a trap. I kept a PagePlus plan I didn't need for far too long because I couldn't bear to let my unused balance expire. So what did I do? I kept throwing another $10...

    Yeah, I parked a number I no longer need (but liked) at Mint with the free 3-months super bowl promo. I considered porting it to this to buy me 3 more months, but then realized for $5 more I could...

    This looked great until you see what the cost is *after* the initial three months is up. That "$5" plan is $25 ($15 if you prepay a year.)

    While "real" cellular voice is nice, Unreal used to fill...

    Well, if Verizon would consider using standards instead of hiding behind incompatible VoLTE schemes that might happen.

    Verizon is an 800-lb gorilla in wireless, and, at least until recently,...

    Another even cheaper option to test T-Mobile these days is the Mint Mobile Trial SIM available at Target.

    $5 gets you 7 days of service, with 100 minutes, 100 texts, and 100MB data.

    The OP started that way, presumably to get a cheaper minimum monthly cost. When someone suggested the $5/RP plan, the OP said that looked interesting. I presume the OP has nothing against a non-paygo...

    I'm not sure why you're asking this in this T-Mobile thread, or if this can ever be quantified like you're asking. It's a big country, and different carriers will be the "best" in different areas....

    Typically the difference is when. Factory unlocked typically means never locked. An unlocked phone that came straight from the factory that way.
