    Like it or not, T-Mobile's coverage is still far from ubiquitous. For instance, my son just built a new house in an area, out in the boonies, with zero T-Mobile service. It sure was nice to be able...

    Does the phone allow you to do a manual network search and select? I will say that there are issues with US customers being able to roam in India. I generally attribute this to the fact that India's...

    I thought about it, but at the time T-Bills were yielding pretty well and it seemed like more trouble than it was worth for a small amount of interest.

    I do suggest that people with phones locked to Sprint should get them unlocked ASAP. There have been mergers where the new company just "forgot" how to unlock some phones after a period of time.

    This used to happen to me on WiFi. I attributed it to T-Mobile's SMS system not receiving an acknowledgement of receipt from my phone due to some issue with the Internet connection.

    I have two: T-Mobile & PagePlus. Didn't need the PagePlus for a while until my son built his new house out in the boondocks. Not even band-71 service there yet.

    T-Mobile should be offering incentives for Sprint customers whose phones are not compatible with T-Mobile's network. It might be best to wait until he finds out what those incentives will be.

    I'm curious if you reset the network settings before inserting the SIM. It could be that the phones had last been used on Verizon and the CDMA side of the phone was set up for Verizon.
