    Where do you come with this crap? First, the page you linked has nothing to do with what the FCC "allows" companies to charge- it's basically a FAQ- a consumer information page to explain phone...

    Honestly, it's been a few years, but as I recall, I think both WiFi Calling and VoLTE worked with the unbranded firmware. They definitely did NOT when the phone was returned from service with AT&T...

    I don't know about the S7 active, but the AT&T versions of the S7 and S7 edge both had band 12, so they make perfectly fine T-Mo phones.

    As to band 71, that's still pretty new, and isn't much of a...

    Yeah, but the problem with One (other than it's relative high price compared to my plan!) is the Robin Hood/communist nature of "taxes and fees included". :)

    Those in high tax states like NY or CA...

    The only negative I ever had with the unlocked S7 was a bug where something tripped the phone's condensation sensor (it prevents the phone from charging if it's wet, so it doesn't zap the circuitry.)...

    I assume he's referring to the "regulatory recovery fee", described by T-Mo thusly:

    "Regulatory Programs & Telco Recovery Fee

    The Regulatory Programs (RPF) & Telco Recovery Fee (TRF) is not a...

    So, do you think it's a just a coincidence T-Mo switched from a $25 SIM charge to a $20 customer support fee and a $10 SIM just as they started supporting eSIM?

    This way, they can still charge $20...

    Workers need to get paid at Best Buy and Walmart, too. If I ask the managers at those stores if they rather I not "bother them" with my annoying cash and carry transaction, and buy from Amazon...

    Any white spaces on the map are pretty much guaranteed not to have any T-Mo coverage, roaming or otherwise.* Roaming areas are already included on T-Mo's maps. They look like regular T-Mobile...

    Sadly, the obvious answer there, is that it beloved T-Mobile it's really just another wireless company, and the whole "Uncarrier" thing is just moderately clever marketing.

    It had been so long since I had purchased a new device from T-Mo directly, I had no idea the "Uncarrier" I'd been using for nearly two decades pulled this kind of crap.

    Recently, my wife wanted a...

    Consider Google Voice. It's free and works well even on slow data connections. Forward your cell numbers to GV before you hit Canada, and incoming calls will ring on your GV number.

    Honestly, none of us here know anything about this "for a fact".

    All we do know is neither VZW nor AT&T has objected to the merger publicly.

    That's all *I* needed to know about it to form my...

    Again, *of course* the second call "will be directed to voicemail". When the active call on line one takes line two offline, line two's "phone" is essentially shut off.

    Google Voice works fine for calls on my prepaid data-only T-Mobile SIM, which is in an Android ZTE phone. T-Mo isn't blocking GV.

    It would be a little disingenuous for T-Mo for block a VoIP...

    IIRC, in addition to being a big payday for T-Mo, that mistake cost the AT&T CEO (Stevenson at the time, I believe?) about $2 million in lost bonus that year. I feel bad about that, since I always...

    There's a difference between "simple" and "easy". The fixes for Sprint are simple in theory, but hard to execute well, and a lot of long term damage had been done from Sprint's burrowing through the...

    Well, it can certainly be a competitive force. All cell carriers have some churn. Accelerated churn means more customers are unhappy with your service than with your competitors. The solution is to...

    I've certainly got nothing against eSIMs, my point was (as often is the case with new incremental technology) that there's really nothing new under the sun here. Just the convenience of being able to...
