    Sprint provides competition in the same way that the Italian navy was an important factor in WWII. (It's there. It doesn't have to be everywhere or even leave port. It just has to exist. ) Carriers...

    They don't have to merge. Just form a not-for-profit coverage subsidiary.

    Does it really matter if USCC roaming is slow or fast if it provides service where you otherwise wouldn't get any?

    PAYG, CDMA shutdown & Moto G7 Power?

    I keep a minimal PagePlus PAYG phone (CDMA) alive as a backup to my main T-Mobile phone, which is currently a Moto G7 Power. A few months back I purchased a Tracfone MyFlip (~$15) in anticipation of...

    Do I want Sprint and T-Mobile to merge? NO
    Do I see a viable alternative path forward? NO
    I'm reluctantly accepting the proposition. How do I vote?

    What you're talking about would almost be a...

    What you're talking about would almost be a strategic partnership. One issue is that everything Sprint "owns" is either rented, borrowed or mortgaged to the hilt. One of Sprint's prime "assets" is...
  9. I also think of HAP technology...

    I also think of HAP technology, like Project Loon, as ways to extend coverage into rural areas without the infrastructure costs associated with terrestrial networks.

    Since the initial leases are...

    I doubt that anyone could make a functional network without it. There's a lot to be said for having something (anything) in place. The major issue of zoning has already been covered. Going forward,...

    Only those who are using a 10-year-old CDMA-only phone. Really, this should be embarrassing for Verizon, the police departments caught "flat-footed" and people with antique phones but not for AT&T.
  12. This is the only reason I support the merger....

    This is the only reason I support the merger. That and the fact that there's now enough unused spectrum around that someone could create a 4th carrier if they wanted and had enough money.
  13. I tried to use the BR $2 coupons at Dunkin today...

    I tried to use the BR $2 coupons at Dunkin today but they didn't work. We even tried a separate transaction. No explanation. They were supposed to work at either BR or Dunkin.
  14. The free market only works when you are dealing...

    The free market only works when you are dealing with freely marketed resources. When you are dependent on exclusive licenses to a limited public-owned resource (RF spectrum) there can be no "free...

    Everything's negotiable, what if the 4th carrier (No one says it has to be Dish.) offered T-Mobile $10B/year to share infrastructure?

    I did say that it would require some out-of-the-box thinking.

    The fortune has already been spent. Modern LTE equipment is very flexible about network sharing.

    Hear him. Charlie has never...

    Thanks! That's what I figured but I wanted some confirmation.

    About today's BR codes. It's been a while since there were BR codes. Last time I could save them to the BR app. It appears that today's codes can't be saved, or did I just forget how? They can be...

    LTE permits ways of partnering on infrastructure that can cut capital expenses. The companies just have to think outside the box.
  20. Good question. The point is that the FCC does...

    Good question. The point is that the FCC does have a say in who can use spectrum. The transfer of a license must be "In the public interest" regardless of who "owns" that license. It's not a...

    Some of the most important BRS licenses were issued to educational organizations, who then leased the licenses to Clearwire, with certain conditions. Clearwire was bought by Sprint.

    FCC licenses...

    OK. Thanks. It doesn't seem to affect everyone. If it did T-Mobile would have it as a known issue.

    Call forwarding issue.

    There is a current tread on T-Mobile's support forum about call forwarding. So, I decided to test mine. I couldn't even do a status inquiry (e.g. *#21#). If you would please try the following. Turn...

    I don't think this is how Chapter 11 works. It's not like personal bankruptcy, where you can "take a bath" to shed your personal debt, keep the car and house and start over. In Chapter 11, your...

    I think if he were to, it would be because someone in Bonn told him to. I think he rather likes the leather-jacketed bad-boy persona. It resonates with the younger market in a way that a 3-piece suit...
