    Nice addition. Now how about a check-box for TAX? Add 10% to the prices of providers who collect taxes, while not adding anything to providers who include taxes in the list price.

    I don't think...

    A good 12V sine-wave UPS goes for less than $100 (just make sure you can silence the alarm). You can charge the battery from your car in maybe half an hour, and power your cable/dsl/fiber modems and...

    I agree $80 is not a good deal, but there really aren't any good deals out there for unlocked Verizon phones. I'd hate to be locked into Tracfone... Do they finally actually unlock all their phones...

    I use that, too. My recent testing was with Hangouts.


    I've tried it on half a dozen. Some certainly work better than others, but even the best still fall far short of carrier voice calls.

    Google won't let more than a couple versions back use the service at all... I've tried, due to show-stopping bugs in newer releases. Not a big deal with most apps, but when you're depending on an...

    Why?!?
    You can walk into a Best Buy or Walmart and pick up a new AT&T Prepaid LG Phoenix 4 for $40, put a RedPocket GSMA SIM right in it and go. Cheaper phones, cheaper service.

    Unless you're in...

    Google is regularly forcing upgrades of the Voice (and Hangouts) app. On older phones in particular, you're at the mercy of the latest version having zero bugs, or else you lose your phone service. ...

    You have no idea how big a modern cruise ship is, do you?


    That's not a bad choice, as it gets you beyond line-of-sight, but don't expect them to work very well at all... Across the ship through...

    Voice/Hangouts and other VoIP apps work if you really need calls and text messaging over WiFi, and at least the former is tolerant enough to hand-off to and from cellular data without dropping your...

    Quite a few fairly recent phones do not have VoLTE. LG K3 (Sep 2016) comes to mind.

    That said, Google Voice is awful... If you're desperately poor and don't depend on voice calls for anything...

    One catch is that it's hell to find cheap unlocked Verizon phones. If you were already using Verizon Prepaid for a year, your current phone is all set. But when it comes time to upgrade... get a dirt...

    That's exactly what I said. Window wells are required to get basement windows to the correct measurements to count as EEROs.

    It's not easy to find an inexpensive "unlocked" Verizon phone, particularly right now. You'll end up wasting a ton of time on eBay having to send back...

    US Mobile is $14+ (after tax) for 0MB while Pix Wireless is $15 (no tax) for 500MB with your UT&T. Only gotcha is the $12 SIM card.
