    I remember Lily Tomlin as Ernestine. "We don't care. We don't have to. We're the phone company." Younger folks wouldn't know that in that era there were no cellphones. At home, you couldn't even buy...

    Thanks for those. There is a message in both that Google and Poly are working on it now. No action on your part will fix it at this time. It's known to be because of something that GV changed.
  3. I believe they are serious. To get there they...

    I believe they are serious. To get there they still need to build and sell to the many in more populated areas to generate the profit to pay for more rural expansion. They are putting most of their...

    They mentioned it in the 1Q21 earnings call. IIRC, they plan to shutdown redundant, overlapping sites, along with building some new, to get to ~70-80K. They need to convert a lot of Sprint customers...

    Yeah, a lot of those 110,000 sites are redundant, overlapping Sprint ones. "biggest network" in that context is a distinction without a difference. It's meaningless.

    They mentioned in the 1Q21...

    I started having problems with GV on my Obi 200 about two weeks ago. Someone reported that they were unable to call my GV number from their landline. They tried calling from their cellphone and it...

    Trust them for what? That is a plan for use in a hotspot. I have had an AT&T hotspot plan for four years - no drama. I use it. They charge me once a month.

    Yes, you would need Internet from somewhere to get the Visible app installed on a phone. It is not on the SIM. Wifi Internet from somewhere could be what you have, McDonalds, Walmart, the library, a...

    I used that or Wifi Analyzer. I've used both. When I was updating my four good phones and a tablet recently to have the same apps and app arrangement, I discovered that they made a change in Android...

    2.4 GHz Wifi can get so congested in high use Wifi environments like apartments that it effectively stops working. There are only three non-overlapping channels on 2.4 GHz. Microwave ovens will...

    The Visible hotspot at 5 Mbps of unlimited data is perfectly adequate for what it is - a light duty personal hotspot. When I got Visible I tested running my whole house for one person on it for...

    I was thinking more of the general insecurity of Android and their apps. It's probably not the financial app or wireless data you have to worry about. It's that free game, fitness tracker,...

    So then they tried unlimited tablet plans. People abused the heck out of that too. There were resellers cloning tablet IMEIs into hotspots by the thousands and selling it as legit AT&T unlimited.

    I have thought about it. I have very rarely used anywhere near $23+ a month of it. It sure does come in real handy though occasionally. I used it just last week when the cable Internet went out in...

    I can send an AOL floppy disk if you need it - Compuserve too. ;~>

    Blast from the past - Why do I still have these? I got rid of most of the VHS, cassette and 8-track audio tapes years ago.

    If Verizon is allowed to buy Tracfone, I would not count on them honoring Tracfone service days and units the way that TF did. There are ways to wriggle out of it. They have a history of doing such...

    It would count as called, no answer. They would probably leave it in their list to try again. Cell service with no voicemail is pretty rare. Most that I know of if you don't set up your voicemail...

    If the VPN is running on the router you don't need anything on the computers/devices that use it. My GL-iNet Mango travel router is capable of doing this. It would be set up as a Wifi repeater (w/...

    Party pay is easy to set up. Each party member pays their own bill directly to Visible. It's anonymous. The members of the party don't have any info about each other, other than the party name.

    A number of people have reported getting T-Mo Home Internet. I don't recall the number so far, but IIRC, it is in the millions. T-Mo announced plans to have 100 million lines by the end of 2022. That...

    See if you can get the T-Mobile Test Drive to check T-Mobile service. It's free, no strings attached, 30 GB of LTE data for up to 30 day, and a free hotspot device that you don't have to return. No...

    Verizon has not bought Tracfone yet. The deal is planned to complete in 3Q21. I would not be surprised if some meathead fuzzy thinkers in state and federal government try to kill the deal or extort...
