    Fair enough. My point was only that Verizon obligated itself not to lock their phones, in return for a particular band of spectrum. AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint did not place themselves under the same...

    Very true. I still remember using a Verizon-branded Nokia phone on T-Mo that simply would not send text messages when the phone was connected to 3G or LTE. It would receive them fine on any network,...

    You "like" that they unlock after 60 days? You're too kind. The bastards shouldn't be locking them in the first place!

    Of course, but the phones that Visible allows are a tiny, tiny subset of Verizon-compatible phones.

    From what I understand, it has to do with Visible being an LTE-only service, so the phone has to...

    Well, post merger, you can probably scratch 1 and 2 off the list (eventually), and maybe 3 when the business practices of the no-longer-hungry big T-Mo come into play. :)

    I'm curious on how...

    I'll give it five, since that's how long they promised to offer those two new prepaid plans (UT&T plus 2GB for $15, plus 5GB for $25.) That should keep MVNOs' and other carriers' prepaid plans in...

    T-Mo's debt to equity ratio around the time of the failed AT&T merger was just about exactly where Sprint's is today, IIRC, (though both numbers were much lower as T-Mo was *much* smaller then than...

    My point was that 100GB/year isn't a lot of bandwidth that requires a new network to offer. MVNOs will currently offer anyone that amount of data that for $20/month or less. They may need Sprint's...
