    The Driftless area really is great. I love to travel there too!

    Yes, the coverage in this area is spotty on T-Mobile. It's spotty on all networks actually. Verizon's footprint is hit-and-miss...

    I was recently in northern/north eastern Iowa and experienced fairly good service on T-Mobile (well, Mint Mobile MVNO). Some towers I connected to were still labeled as IWireless towers via Network...

    Sprint has really good voice coverage where you can get it. It's important to know that Sprint does not use VoLTE, so the quality and abilities of your phone calls will be that of a 2005-era phone....

    I almost wish this T-Mobile/Sprint merger involved USCC. Sprint merging with USCC would be more effective (at least at first), since they use the same CDMA network and have less overlap. T-Mobile...

    That's valid. I didn't think of the snowball effect. Especially in regards to roaming revenue. I really wonder what the USCC demographic is. My feeling is- the people who have always been on USCC,...

    And this makes me wonder how T-Mobile & US Cell design their roaming agreements. Do they select specific regions or specific towers? Does TMO pay a flat rate for access to those towers, or is it a...

    They roam unlimited (plan allotment) on Sprint and T-Mobile. From my experience, data speeds are actually pretty good. I wonder if they still have that 50% usage rule? (At least 51% of your usage...

    I think you can buy basic phones from best buy, choose to activate them later, and then activate them on pre-paid. Can someone confirm that this is possible?

    It's easier to guess based on the region and the spectrum that is allocated in the region. So, in my area- T-Mobile often has 3 to 4 identical panels because they only have B2/B4 spectrum. ATT will...

    I haven't been on Verizon in a while, but as I remember, Verizon's suburban Chicago coverage has always had gaps. I think ATT is the superior provider in Chicagoland.
