    T-Mobile & Binge On

    Was looking at wireless camera doorbells and a few reviews mentioned they didn't work with T-mobile, and some specifically said with Samsung phones on T-Mobile.

    Was wondering if Binge On interferes with wireless doorbells and home security systems delivering video to a device?

    Has anyone here experienced this type of trouble?

    I don't have Binge On turned on but I do have a Samsung phone. It has worked for me since the first model came out.

    Do you mean Ring.com bells not working on LTE for T-Mobile? If so, that is true. You can get around this by using wifi if you have access, however.

    Wouldn't vpn fix such things?

    I would file an FCC complaint for it interfering with that, you shouldn't have to go the VPN route to get a security doorbell to work. If that's the case, I can think of a lot of other security monitoring services that would be affected by this downfall.

    Do you know why it doesn't work? Is it just because T-Mobile throttles all video traffic with Binge On enabled?

    I wonder why Ring doesnt just ask t-mobile to exclude it from binge on.

    With BingeOn enabled, and on non-encrypted connections, the video will be throttled.

    You can either switch to an encrypted connection (https) or disable BingeOn to stop the TMO throttling.

    You're right. But the average consumer will not know this and more than likely give the maker of whatever security system or doorbell poor marks.

    I still get throttled on YouTube when it's "Encrypted"

    My ring doorbell works fine on both my Nexus 6p and Moto G3.

    I tried my AT&T Digital Life video stream and it works just fine, though I don't think it's an HD stream to begin with.
