    No one will activate this phone but it can still, for the time being, be used to call 911 and make per-use manual roaming calls.

    Even many boomers want TV on their schedule, not on the network's. This is why I wasn't impressed by TVision at $40-$60. This boomer is not a slave to the cycle of hyperventilating news broadcasts or...

    This list is just cities added in the last two weeks. NYC was one of the first places where T-Mobile deployed band 41. Now, Sprint's network in NYC is highly dependent on band 41, so there might not...
