    Is Verizon Still the Best for Coverage?

    You need line of sight to a satellite. Depending on terrain, trees, etc. you may need to wait until you have line of sight to get coverage, even outdoors.

    I agree here. Old analog, iDEN, and TDMA/IS-136 phones no longer function at all. Why should the deprecation of legacy 1x/CDMA be any different?

    All I am really pointing out is terms of the thread topic is that with VoLTE, voice performance depends on data performance.

    I was also trying to answer why the tech press is uninterested in...

    Itís an interesting cultural shift really. 40 years ago, when the phone rang there was an imperative to answer it. There was no callerID and no voicemail. We all just answered with no idea who was...

    Yes, it is deployed in many places and in more places as time progresses. It really depends on where you live and travel. For example, here in Seattle it should start to make a difference in early...

    Verizon Phone ratings for RECEPTION

    Voice quality on modern networks is mostly an artifact of pushing bits around - bandwidth, jitter, and latency matter. The codec also matters. Reception still matters because phones with better...

    Albertans Angry Over Amber Alerts

    There is good science to suggest that disruption of sleep will increase traffic accidents the next day. This happens with every transition to daylight saving time. So the alerts when people are...

    It is a good question, but we can't possibly know the answer with certainty. My guess would be that any phone with VoLTE on AT&T will eventually get VoLTE on Cricket.
  12. Casual Poll, Have You Heard About the Year End VZW CDMA Shutdown?

    We have gone through a few technology shutdowns in wireless over the years. I realize that some people will be surprised, but the world moves on. My old analog, IS-136/TDMA, iDEN, and AT&T 2G GSM...

    Allowing people to opt out, as in the states, seems a reasonable compromise.
  14. Any way to mass block all calls starting w/ same 6 digits as yours, except for a few?

    I use CallControl on Android and Wideprotect on iOS.

    They can both whitelist contacts.

    I am also finding some of the spammers are now using the first five digits. They can both handle that...

    There is no AT&T native coverage in Canada unless you count signal leaking over the border.

    You will find some AT&T Mexico coverage maps here

    quick question

    Bugs happen. We simply donít have software engineering methodologies to completely avoid them. The good news is that Apple tends to fix them quickly

    Sucessfull VoLTE Activation on Prepaid!

    fwiw. VoLTE works just fine on my Pixel 3XL with AT&T prepaid.

    But I am one of the lucky ones that got VoLTE early.

    The exception being the Pixel 3.

    It does AT&T VoLTE.
  22. Does T-Mobile carrier lock an unlocked phone on postpaid?

    No. It will remain unlocked.

    My general rule. I buy my iOS devices unlocked from Apple. I buy my Android devices unlocked from Google.

    T-Mobile helps combat illegal caller ID spoofing

    You probably want to opt out from T-mobile's spam/scam protections then.

    Personally, I would rather not be interrupted by scam calls.

    Probably, but the point I'm trying to make is that bundling streaming services hasn't been a terribly successful strategy for AT&T.

    This calls into question AT&Tís strategy of bundling streaming services as part of their value proposition to customers.
