    It's a non problem except for the lack of HD on some calls.

    As of now HD already does work between some carriers. I don't recall all of the the details of who works with whom. IIRC, Verizon...

    I have had both cable and FIOS available to choose from for about ten years. They both perform and cost about the same. Two is not enough to spur competition.

    JD Power works by companies commissioning surveys and paying for them. The company designs the survey to produce the results they want. You are right to be suspicious of JD Power surveys. That said,...

    I did not intend to say that Starlink alone would be be a pipe dream for most Americans. I missed the "most Americans" part of what I was replying to. My feelings were not hurt that you pointed out...

    Haha, yeah. I don't like that my RAV4 does not have a glove compartment light. My previous two Ford Explorers did, but they were total junk.

    I must be a slow learner. After the first one was junk,...

    Your info shows you are on band 5 with 5 MHz bandwidth. 5 MHz bandwidth can get congested easily in populated areas.

    Does the Mofi4500 have the ability to select bands? You might be able to get...

    Ok, interesting. It can still be a part of increasing broadband availability, especially to places where they will never roll cable or build enough terrestrial wireless. People in high population...

    Unlimited texts have always been free - hence the name. I wouldn't pay anything for the service. It is not THAT good. I'm paying by them littering the screen with ads.

    You just have to use your...

    Looks like you don't have an APN. Since VoLTE uses data, that will stop calls (and data) from working.

    You could try touching the three dots at the top right. That should bring up a button to...

    That is a Spinal Tap mindset/argument - This amp is better because its volume goes to 11. It's like choosing one car over another because the speedometer on one goes to a higher number.

    High-end...

    Did you do a TF transfer service from the TF-ATT SIM to the TF-Verizon SIM? It won't work if you just put an unactivated TF-Verizon SIM in.

    If it is a Visible phone it is capable of VoLTE. That is...

    My experience is for Vz PP on a phone.

    Don't know for sure about add-on data. Unused regular data carries forward for one month before expiring.

    Yes to the other questions.

    If you put it on...

    Did you activate the phone with a new TF SIM and service or put a previously activated one in?

    Check the APN.

    Check to see if HD Voice/VoLTE is enabled. It won't work for calls if VoLTE is not...

    Why is that? Because it may never be fully operational?

    If it does go fully operational, it will cover the entire country except Alaska. The satellites will fly over all areas without regard to to...

    Nah, 5G will cover the majority of the population like LTE does now. Just not next week or month. Think of a few years.

    Gbps 5G outside of metro areas is not worth pining for. It's unlikely to...

    What was horrible? The eSIM? The enrollment? The coverage?

    I can agree that coverage is still poor in areas around me, while, at the same time, good enough or even superior in other areas.

    The Velocity is an older device that is not as good as some newer models. It has 2x CA, but is not much better than the Mobley itself.

    I bought one because it was only $30 as a refurb. I was not...

    Correlation does not prove causation. It is a coincidence.

    5G uses the same radio frequencies we have been using for many years. There is nothing magic about 5G.

    Yeah, Truphone was my first smartphone service. I could save a few dollars a month by going back to it. I don't use much of anything on a phone off Wifi. The $90/GB is a psychological barrier that...

    Interesting. I still think if too many do it, AT&T will do something. Too many doing it is somewhat self limiting by the fact that the plan and device are no longer available for new service. The...

    Ok, the picture is clearer now. Since you are already streaming your TV you know about how much data you will use. 500 GB may pass under the radar with AT&T.

    $70 a month would be a nice savings.

    Oh, I understood wanting to save money. I'm paying cable $180 a month for Internet and TV. That is for the minimum Inet speed and the TV package that includes the basic cable channels - nothing...

    Thanks for the review. I have been meaning to post mine.

    I am six weeks in.

    Sorry, your question was confusing.

    Otherwise, did not read the wall of text.

    Yes, at 22 GB (IIRC). It is only supposed to happen if the cell you are connected to is congested. I have never gotten anywhere near 22 GB in a month to possibly experience it. I'm rural. It's...
