    No. But won't people start reporting changes in the states? Especially conspiracy theory numbers?
    iPhone 11 is my current primary phone. I have older model iPhones and Moto phones available on other lines. Trying to simplify to 2 prepaid lines, one on the Verizon network and a limited minute plan on ATT to improve coverage area. 12 month plans to help me fight the urge to switch. The good old days of contracts where you had to pay a hefty ETF to leave

    I'm sorry, I can't release that information at this time.

    I hope Sevillelady comes back to this thread. I really want their opinion on what our Lizard Alien Overlords think of Mint Mobile.

    I think the drop numbers are at least of that magnitude, because they were published by the state controlled Chinese media:
    China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) announced on March 19 the number of phone users in each province in February. Compared with the previous announcement, which was released on Dec. 18, 2019, for November 2019 data, both cellphone and landline users dropped dramatically. In the same period the year before, the number of users increased.

    The number of cellphone users decreased from 1.600957 billion to 1.579927 billion, a drop of 21.03 million. The number of landline users decreased from 190.83 million to 189.99 million, a drop of 840,000.

    In the previous February, the number increased. According to MIIT, the number of cellphone users increased in February 2019 from 1.5591 billion to 1.5835 billion, which is 24.37 million more. The number of landline users increased from 183.477 million to 190.118 million, which is 6.641 million more.

    According to China’s National Bureau of Statistics, the country’s population at the end of 2019 was 4.67 million larger than in 2018, reaching 1.40005 billion.
    But, as Epoch Times and Breitbart explained, there might be different reasons that explain the drop, not only the one that they are all dead...
    Some people just read the titles and make assumptions. Typical millennial with ADD I would guess.

    On the other hand, Chinese media is known to hide things. So a dose of mistrust is OK. Some US publications decided that they need to side with China, just to show that their hate against Trump.
    Politics and truth are seldom together.

    No, you aren't. Since this thread has gone too far off topic it is now closed. If anyone wants to discuss this further, do it in the lounge forum. This is not the place for this nonsense.
    Don't make me turn this car around.....
