    I've had luck with any device running Android 6 or newer. Heck, most stuff will run on 4.4.

    Lots of people like to slam Android for "fragmentation" from devices with few or no updates, but ever...

    I'm surprised the Samsung honors those settings after you put the SIM back in. I'd have expected the SIM change would reset any mobile network settings back to the AT&T defaults.

    Despite the wide variety of choices (most of which don't apply because they are for different carriers- e.g. "CDMA Only" when using T-Mo or AT&T) they suffer from the same issues as the choices...

    I don't think anyone is suggesting they'd like to only use 3G; certainly I wasn't. I was just saying 3G is my secret weapon when dealing with congestion- no phone I've seen automatically switches...

    That's weird, since PAU never cost $17 for anyone, AFAIK.

    Originally it was $20, back in the day when T-Mo sold subsidized phones on two-year contracts. When T-Mo ended contracts and subsidies,...

    Yep. It's just stupid. Why not just give 10% off any purchase over $50 and dispense with these hoops we're forced to jump through?

    The problem isn't really Target's system, but a badly worded promo. It's not $5 off of $50 cards, but $5 off "when you spend $50 or more", so $5 is the max discount you'll get off of any one purchase...

    I've always found T-Mo stores the friendliest of all the big 4 corporate stores, but frankly the linked article and it's anecdotal sample of one store of each carrier was a beyond stupid waste of a...

    Yes. The two 800-lb gorillas came to an interoperability agreement.

    Hopefully, T-Mo's merger with Sprint gives them a seat at the gorillas' table.

    Sorry if you thought I was jumping on you, that certainly wasn't my intention.

    Fair enough. OTOH, it also can be a trap. I kept a PagePlus plan I didn't need for far too long because I couldn't bear to let my unused balance expire. So what did I do? I kept throwing another $10...

    Yeah, I parked a number I no longer need (but liked) at Mint with the free 3-months super bowl promo. I considered porting it to this to buy me 3 more months, but then realized for $5 more I could...

    This looked great until you see what the cost is *after* the initial three months is up. That "$5" plan is $25 ($15 if you prepay a year.)

    While "real" cellular voice is nice, Unreal used to fill...

    Well, if Verizon would consider using standards instead of hiding behind incompatible VoLTE schemes that might happen.

    Verizon is an 800-lb gorilla in wireless, and, at least until recently,...

    Another even cheaper option to test T-Mobile these days is the Mint Mobile Trial SIM available at Target.

    $5 gets you 7 days of service, with 100 minutes, 100 texts, and 100MB data.

    The OP started that way, presumably to get a cheaper minimum monthly cost. When someone suggested the $5/RP plan, the OP said that looked interesting. I presume the OP has nothing against a non-paygo...

    I'm not sure why you're asking this in this T-Mobile thread, or if this can ever be quantified like you're asking. It's a big country, and different carriers will be the "best" in different areas....

    Yep. I'd love a mode where we could order the network priority- I'd honestly love to be able to set my device to connect to 3G first, LTE only if 3G wasn't available, and 2G as a last resort.

    While the Coolpad is certainly not close to the strongest radio receiver in T-Mo's lineup, it works well enough to give a pretty good idea of coverage. For example, I'm currently in an area with very...

    You're missing my point, though. I'm not suggesting T-Mo shouldn't be upgrading to 5G. Of course they and other carriers have to plan ahead and stay on the cutting edge else they'll fall behind.

    Interesting thought.

    Personally, I tend to go low rather than go big. When I encounter congestion in Denver, I switch down to 3G and the problem typically goes away. The ironic part is that I...

    I certainly didn't mean to make it sound meanacing, like I was going to intentionally try to tank T-Mo's score! :)
