    2400 bps is not entirely useless but you do have to rethink your data needs, going back to 1990s ways of doing things.

    Roaming in Greece

    My wife an I just returned from a 10-day tour of Greece where we roamed on the Cosmote network. Just after arrival at Athens, I used the T-Mobile app to sign up for the 10-day high-speed Data Pass on...

    I looked into this and a local Greek data SIM seems a bit spendy for our needs. Cosmote had a special deal for unlimited data for 10€/mo but it seems it was only for September. I was thinking about...

    My plan, the original $60 55+ one, gives me a free hour of GoGo WiFi, per flight. I have no intention of "upgrading" my plan to $90/mo for occasional benefits while traveling.

    Thanks. I was curious if there were any perks, like unlimited GoGo WiFi on the flights or something, associated with the roaming pass, that I wasn't aware of. I think I'll just wait until we land to...
  7. Any reason to start 10-day roaming pass before I get to Europe?

    Is there any advantage to starting the 10-day roaming pass before I arrive in Europe? I should be able to start it from the T-Mobile app on my phone.

    Correct. Google Voice and my cellular number got divorced. I have not run extensive tests. I just wanted to make sure I wouldn't be paying for incoming spam calls while overseas. Now I just wish I...

    Edit: It no longer rings on my cellular phone but that's OK as long as it isn't using my phone line.

    P.P.S. I think it's working now.

    Any way to block SMS?

    Last week I realized that I'd let my PAYG backup phone expire, so I restarted a new PAYG line using the same SIM but I had to pick up a new (to me) number because my old one had been recycled. This...

    Agreed. Engineering is an exercise in compromise. You can build a structure to survive just about anything, it's just about how much money you want to spend.
