    I thought about it, but at the time T-Bills were yielding pretty well and it seemed like more trouble than it was worth for a small amount of interest.

    Band 71 may have lower priority than band 12. The two bands don't CA with each other so you won't see them at the same time.

    I do suggest that people with phones locked to Sprint should get them unlocked ASAP. There have been mergers where the new company just "forgot" how to unlock some phones after a period of time.

    You must first determine the criteria you use to determine "best". Is it: RF performance, sound quality, screen size, screen resolution, camera quality, gaming experience, HDMI video output, color,...

    This used to happen to me on WiFi. I attributed it to T-Mobile's SMS system not receiving an acknowledgement of receipt from my phone due to some issue with the Internet connection.

    I have two: T-Mobile & PagePlus. Didn't need the PagePlus for a while until my son built his new house out in the boondocks. Not even band-71 service there yet.

    What @Serial Port said. If you bought a phone from T-Mobile, there are three stages of backing out:
    1. Within 14 days you can return everything and reverse the transaction except for trade-ins. Any...

    For a falsehood to be a lie, the teller must know it to be false. There were reports that other carrier had been affected. I've seen reports that it was due to a massive DDOS attack. All incorrect,...

    Last night I played around with various settings:
    1. Set WiFi Calling to WiFi Preferred
    2. Forwarded all calls to a non-T-Mobile number.
    3. Switched to 2G/3G mode

    Can't say if any of it made a...

    I'm not sure who the first "them" is in this statement: T-Mobile? Dish? FCC? Seems to me that the problem would be that USCC does not have anything like a nationwide spectrum holding. It would be...

    T-Mobile should be offering incentives for Sprint customers whose phones are not compatible with T-Mobile's network. It might be best to wait until he finds out what those incentives will be.

    I'm curious if you reset the network settings before inserting the SIM. It could be that the phones had last been used on Verizon and the CDMA side of the phone was set up for Verizon.

    I'm pretty sure that what is entailed in "transitional support" is spelled out somewhere. I can't imagine that, knowing Charlie, T-Mobile would have left something like that undefined.

    As long as T-Mobile lives up to their end of the deal, it's mostly bad on Dish. Of course, there all those surplus Sprint tower leases to consider. I think T-Mobile will have to find another buyer...
