    Supplementing, not replacing. Band 71 is 600MHz so it goes through walls better than mid band (1700MHz/Band 4, 1900MHz/Band 2) but really no different than other low bands (700MHz/Band 12,...

    Cherry picking again?

    Clearly as those articles (and many more back in the day) show, there were a good number of people, including industry analysts that, despite the lack of a clear ITU...

    It's "nefarious" in that it was advertising/marketing BS.

    And it was misleading, despite no "official definition", but don't take the word of my dimming recollection for it (again, we're talking...

    Do you ever get tired moving the goalposts between your postings here?

    You insinuated I was unfair calling out T-Mo for calling their HSDPA network "4G" because the ITU had sanctioned the use of...

    In his magenta-tinted world, T-Mo can do no wrong, and any criticism of them is unfounded.

    As I've pointed out here many times, I'm a (mostly) happy T-Mo customer of nearly 20 years. (I signed up...

    I used Three UK SIMs when I visited Europe with the kids back in June. Bought them on eBay and Amazon. I bought three (3) Three UK SIMs, each from a different vendor who claimed they could be...

    They include "free WiFi" the same way they also include "free oxygen" to breathe while using their service.

    They don't provide any WiFi- they mean since you get no cellular data in the free plan,...

    Good point. Just like us "sad T-Mobile customers" who were told 3G HSDPA was "4G" because it was faster than than their previous 3G network.

    I've always joked that I've never owned a pickup truck because I didn't want to be stuck with a big uncomfortable vehicle the 363 days a year I didn't need one, and would just rent a truck the few...

    Ah, missed it was TracFone, sorry.

    Before I had a Digits-compatible account (my old grandfathered T-Mo plan didn't support Digits before I "upgraded" to a newer plan) my alternative was to...

    In the "so crazy it just might work" department, when I'm using a non-VoLTE or non-WiFi Calling phone on T-Mo, I use the T-Mo Digits app to access calls and texts over data.

    I've been with T-Mo for 18 years, and my experiences with them have mostly been positive. But the fanboyism on this board from a few individuals here is so incredible it's actually entertaining.

    Wireless is a long game. An extremely long game. Whether T-Mo delays deploying 5G in a given market for a few weeks or months will mean as little in 10 years as anyone's EDGE deployment schedule...

    Agreed. My only thought (based on how SMS backup and restore apps work) is that the app that writes to the device SMS database has to be the default SMS app on the device. This means that whatever...
