    I have been using an Obi 200* with Google Voice, my cable Internet, and Callcentric for 911 for years. It works pretty good for my personal use, including a few faxes a year on the GV service. There...

    Phone manufacturers pay Verizon (a lot) to test and certify their phones for use on Verizon. The (IMEI) serial numbers for certified phones get put in Verizon's database. We don't have access to the...

    Not necessarily. Most people don't have a phone capable of band selection or the inclination to do it.

    One description of cell band allocation I saw said that they allocate higher frequency,...

    I have not heard anything that leads me to think that T-Mo and the T-Mo/Sprint deal is a house of cards. It does appear to me that the business risk is higher than average. If the T-Mo/Sprint deal...

    Phone settings are not going to change how congested a cell is. Although, I think I have seen some discussions about some phones that can select which LTE band from the cell they use rather than the...

    Yes there will still be Verizon phones. Phones have to be on Verizon's whitelist to activate on Verizon or their MVNOs. There are also carrier agnostic phones that are not carrier branded and are...

    It's a hybrid holster case. It is a pain to take the G6 case off, but the same case for my Phoenix 2 is 3-7/8 oz. A wallet case for the Phoenix 2 weighs 2-1/8 oz. So yeah, my case preference isn't...

    It has been a couple of years since I actively used Sprint. As of then, Sprint did use PRLs and I had to update them manually in Settings. There was also Update Profile which I don't know what that...

    Thanks for the update. I could not find the new unit being sold at ST. They still have the ZTE for $50 new, $20 refurbed.

    I did receive the refurbed ZTE I ordered. I activated and connected an old...

    The Moto G6 is a significant upgrade in speed and camera quality from the Phoenix 2 - I have both.

    I never used the Phoenix 2 as my daily carry phone. I bought it on a lark as a $20 Black Friday...

    Interesting. I am not an expert on chapter whatever deals.

    All the more reason that Softbank wants the deal they agreed to with T-Mo.

    Note that the deal is for Softbank/Sprint to get ~$26...

    Yes, of course, it would depend on Softbank being willing to sell at any given price. Selling at $10 billion would be a desperation, cut their losses, move.

    I would expect Softbank to explore all...

    If someone buys Sprint, they buy the liabilities along with the assets. What would happen with loans and bonds would follow the normal course of business law.

    If the T-Mo/Sprint deal is quashed, Sprint's stock price is expected to drop to about $2. At that price the cost to buy Sprint is more like $10 billion. At that price (rather than $26 billion)...

    What you are thinking of works quite well. There is no need to unlock or root the phone, just use it. You do not need cell service to use the apps that are not for cell service with Wifi. You may...

    The Mobley is an adequate hotspot for many uses and already paid for. I picked up a Velocity to use my SIM for $30. I would not bother for $100 and up.

    Most likely a lot of people who lost line-powered Internet switched to cell data for info and entertainment which caused congestion on the cells.

    ~ -117-115 are right at the limit of where calls work. The problem is that signal is fluctuating below that. Texts will usually get through since they only need a brief time of adequate signal.
