    At which Chinese airport is she arriving? At PVG (Shanghai) it is super easy to get the local SIM. The desk is after immigration just before you go down the escalator to baggage claim.

    If one is serious about ‘service everywhere’ then the only answer can be a satphone. With the proviso that you must be outdoors or by a window, satellite offers significantly better coverage than...

    I recently replaced my 6S battery at 57%. It had had about 1700 charges and would give 1 - 2 hours of use after a 2.5 hour charge.

    I suspect iOS will eventually support RCS. What will be interesting to see if it does RCS better than Android does.

    Apparently there is a 13.1 update coming on the 24th. Supposedly fixes many bugs. I guess the pressure was on to have iOS 13 ready for the new hardware.

    Nope. The iPhone is the same. It is the SIM installed that makes the difference.

    Vonage ticks some of those boxes. SimulRing even works in China. They discontinued the 800 service but I get that through a reseller very cheaply.

    AT&T Prepaid in Canada

    There is coverage along Hwy 1 (Banff, Lake Louise) and Hwy 16 (Jasper). There is NO coverage on Hwy 93, the Icefields Parkway, that runs between Lake Louise and Jasper. There is slow public wifi at...

    Weird that old iPhones can do this. Do you mean that newer Androids cannot?



    Yes indeed.
  12. Why is there no roaming on Sprint towers for Tmobile customers?

    Luckily for T-Mobile, this premise is absurd. Other operators have made good use of spectrum at that frequency so the new T-Mobile can too.
  13. Has T-Mobile stated that it will operate as Band...

    Has T-Mobile stated that it will operate as Band 41? Might it follow the GSM crowd to Band 7? Or is there a regulatory reason to stick with 41?

    Your situation perfectly describes a typical fixed wireless deployment in my area. They usually use LTE on 3.5 GHz for delivery of TV and internet.

    Read carefully. You claimed that ’if Obama had a hotel.’ My point is that this type of conflict has never occurred before.

    This line of thinking does not work. We have never had a president before that co-mingled his political and business interests. Simply put, Obama would not have a hotel chain (nor Bush, Reagan,...

    Perhaps to capture American roamers?



    Considering how poor the Telus and Rogers coverage is on the ferry route, I am hopeful.

    Well, I am sure this post will keep your party membership in good standing! If you ever travel to Taiwan you will realize that it is in fact a separate country.
  24. John Legere: 5 years of Un-Carrier and you ain't seen nothing yet

    Not much of one. The big 3 all have their own ’discount’ brands. There are two independents I can think of: 7-11 and Petro-Canada (gas stations, refining etc). Recent regulatory decisions have...
