    The MMS black hole is the deal breaker for me. Too many devices routinely send texts as MMS (for example, multi party text from an iphone). No notice for sender or recipient essentally...

    My personal line is not under contract so that is not a hurdle.

  9. Why no carrier-intergrated 2nd phone number (similar to google voice) solutions?

    I mean, really, in the 1980s we had ringmaster (2 phone number for the same line) service on regular POTS phone lines.

    Why is it there is no carrier integrated solution to allow for a second...
  10. Go-phone "smartphone" on post-paid plan, no data plan???

    If you get a go-phone smarphone like the ZTE Avail to use on your post-pay account, does that require a data plan due to the Android OS? Can you just turn off non SMS/MMS data services? I'm just...

    but why develop/issue any new phones at are GSM only, when the road map for the network is to eventually be rid of GSM and be 3G and LTE only?

    I'm not there now, but know a group traveling there soon. Based on Commnet's map, it looks like them. It appears they have their network set up to handle both CDMA and GSM roamers.
