t-mobile's coverage is excellent and *very* fast.

a decade ago it wasn't as good, but those days are long, long gone.


Since you always guess, once in a while you actually guess right!

Too bad about their coverage.


Ditto. Friend with Verizon (or maybe Sprint) can get signal up on the
mountain while we're skiing. With T-Mobile I have to drive around in
town before I can find a spot that will let me make a call.

I'm going to try my Freedompop hotspot + Hangouts next time and see if
that works any better.

If I really needed better coverage I'd have to pay a LOT more than the
$10/year it costs me now :-)

not if you shop around a bit, and you wouldn't have to fuss with two
carriers either.

Yeah, I keep a $10/year T-Mobile phone just because I have so much money
on the account. But I can't find that phone right now.

T-Mobile coverage is fine on the eastern seaboard, but in California and
much of the west, if you ever venture outside of urban areas you're
going to be without coverage.

Sure if you get good signals. In my rural area, you get nothing! Same
for others like Sprint. Verizon barely gets a signal though. :P

"The OpenSignal "State of Mobile Networks" report took into account
about 6 billion measurements from 237,213 U.S. smartphone users,
sampled between Oct. 1 to Dec. 30 of 2017 (Q4)."


"The "uncarrier" blew past Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint in five out
of six major metric tests, besting the competition on 4G download
speed, 3G download speed, overall download speed, 3G latency,]
and 4G availability. The only metric T-Mobile didn't win was 4G
latency; AT&T just beat it by a hair."

Then AT&T wouldn't let *new* phones block data (it's more complex than
that, but that's not the point here) so I summarily dropped AT&T for
T-Mobile (after toying with the idea of changing the IMEI because AT&T
insisted that they'd charge you for data if you switched the SIM card into
a phone that 'could' have data - even if you had data blocked!).



The problem was people who got data-capable phones without data plans,
and would rack up $10,000 bills because they ended up using data anyways
but being charged $1 per byte or whatever the fee was for use of data
without a data plan.

There are other aspects too because they benefit when you move from a
low ARPU plan with no data to a far mreo expensive plan with data.

(and charging exorbitant amounts for us eof data without data plan was
part of the strategy to push people to higher monthly packages to avoid
those $10,000 bills).


The VP at AT&T kept giving me that "consistent bill" bull**** where I had
to constantly remind her that the phone line had a *data block* so it's
impossible to use data.

They'd let you have a data block, but they wouldn't let you put the SIM in
a phone that they called a "smart phone", where, they had the nospam-like
duplicity to say, with a straight face "what good is a smart phone not with
a data plan?".

That's when I realized that the VP was either the dumbest person on the
planet, or, just a duplicitous liar like nospam is.

It's frustrating to deal with people who say dumb things like that with a
straight face because you have to think:
a. Are they really that stupid?
b. Or, do they really think I'm that stupid?

It's the same with nospam with his deadpan responses of duplicity.

In the end, I gave up, and the government said AT&T told them they
"resolved" it, which was a bold outright lie but I was worn down by then.

The way I resolved it was to drop AT&T and move to T-Mobile and I've been
happy ever since.

that doesn't matter.

at&t's smartphone plans require data.

you were trying to scam them by using a smartphone on a non-smartphone
plan and you got caught.

if you don't like their plans, find another provider.

If you're on Verizon, and you have weak signal, don't they give you free
femtocells or free repeaters or free routers for wi-fi calling?

T-Mobile will normally give you one of those for free, but they gave me two
(which works better because my house if large).

I have the free femtocell, which connects to the SOHO router, and I have a
free repeater, which has a wall unit and a house unit.

With those, I get *great* cellular signal strength inside the house.
Can't you do the same with Verizon?
