    HD Voice is possible over 3G networks using a few different codecs, but to my understanding many interconnects aren't configured well to support it. I believe I recall reading T-Mobile doing AMR-WB...

    Most people think the "Erase all content and settings" on the device (or in most cases through the computer) allows the new owner to start the phone fresh. Activation Lock prevents this practice...

    To extend on this point, I recall my free SIM would not be accepted as a number for Uber or Lyft, sometimes not accept incoming calls from GV, and calling some business numbers didnít go through...

    Band 66

    Most places that had B71 LTE prior to December lost at least half their bandwidth to the 5G rollout.

    Iíve been reading reports of some places, particularly areas that didnít have LTE on B71 before...
  5. Ting isnít dropping support for T-Mobile after all...

    Are they just waiting until they get a better offer from AT&T to drop T-Mobile?

    Then they can wait for what happens with the TMUS merger to see if the resulting company renegotiates their Sprint...
  6. The final obstacle to the T-Mobile/Sprint Merger Begins Tomorrow

    A major argument in this case involves their key demographic being lower income consumers. That is why *the* claim by AGs in this lawsuit is that it will ruin options for service aimed towards lower...
  7. The final obstacle to the T-Mobile/Sprint Merger Begins Tomorrow

    Most of Sprintís key demographic is barely covered by 5G or not even covered at all. At least T-Mobile can market its 5G with some level of certainty that its similar-demographic customers can...

    The only spectrum I feel comes closest to being worthless would be Sprintís SMR holdings. They are the only ones using that and it would take more effort to repurpose than the rest of Sprintís...

    New "smartsim" service from Tracfone.

    Canít compare 5G NR with WiMAX because 5G NR is being used on all four major carriers, as well as it being a globally deployed standard. Qualcomm is forcing the standard on its modems and chipsets. ...

    Even more of a reason why I believe it will be an option for business customers rather than other TracFone brand consumers.

    TracFone does offer a business-oriented brand called Clearway, so it...

    Donation centers are good, as they can reissue them to people for 911 access or Lifeline activation.

    My guess is commercials will happen at ~2-3 minute intervals with one happening at the start of the video.

    Depending on how the videos are produced, the commercials might be interwoven into the...

    I feel this would be a no, but asking here will only give you anocdotal evidence. Only a Verizon tech or network engineer would have a more accurate answer.

    It only has a couple LTE, UMTS, and GSM bands that support US carriers, bands 2 (1900) and 5 (850).
