Nokia 3310
Feb 26, 2017, 7:49 PM
in the Article: Nokia Brings Back the 3310 forum

Used the original one many years ago, however I though the 2G network on ATT was shut off, since these don't have 3G or greater, they are obsolete already?

Android Flip Phone

in the Article: LG Pairs Android with Flip Phone to Make the Wine Smart forum

This needs to be brought to the US, there are a lot of folks that like the flip phone, would give the functionality with the dial buttons for those that don't like a standard touch screen, would have the new LTE technology and still have the basic touchscreen for certain things. This would be appealing to the senior crowd, me included.

You must live in the big city, in our area it's all roaming for both.

Idaho & Montana

in the Article: T-Mobile Says LTE Footprint Now Matches Sprint forum

Neither T-Mobile nor Sprint are any good in Idaho and Montana, at Best a little coverage around a couple major cities in ID, rest is roaming at basically 1x if any coverage at all. For the Present Verizon has the best coverage in these states hands down.

Yep, the costs were killing me, I dumped verizon and went prepaid with PagePlus, using the same network with no contracts and less than half the bill, it works for me.

Update existing LG Phones?
Aug 20, 2014, 2:47 PM
in the Article: LG to Adopt G3's User Interface for Most Phones forum

So will this update be available for download to existing new LG phones, or just phones being offered? I have a new LG smartphone running kitkat 4.4.2. :roll:

So what network does it run on?

911 button

I could forsee numerous false 911 calls with that large button so easy to hit. :cry:

But if you have a LTE capable device, could you still use it and just not have LTE service?

Go Smart Coverage

in the Article: T-Mobile Mulling GoSmart Expansion forum

Nice to have cheap plans however T-mobiles coverage especially in the northwest sucks, and no roaming on prepaid, so a lot of dead spots. :x

What is NFC?

Is this the new system that makes better use of battery so they last longer?

in the Article: Verizon Says Aug. 16 LTE Expansion Reaches 75% of US forum

Here lately ours has been bouncing constantly from 3/G-4/G to 1x, no consistancy in signal at all! It started out real good and went downhill.

Sunset 2G
Aug 3, 2012, 3:49 PM
in the Article: AT&T to Sunset 2G Network by 2017 forum

I find it ironic that AT&T wants to sunset 2G to move people to 3G or 4G, neither of which we have in North Idaho, 2G or Edge is as good as it gets, we can't upgrade to something we don't have! :roll:

Expansion

in the Article: Verizon Expands and Enhances LTE Coverage forum

The Spokane CDA area has some LTE Coverage as Well as Boise, any idea when coverage will expand further for Idaho and Montana?

Well on a basic flipphone it shows E, not 3G, and not running data.

850 but only running edge, no 3G north of Hayden, Rathdrum and points north don't have it.

in the Article: AT&T Sunsetting 2G Services on 1900MHz forum

It all starts somewhere, they have towers here in existance with outdated equipment, just need to upgrade, not put in new ones. Its a losing battle here with signal issues, outdated service, and no hope in sight.

Re: Upgrade towers

in the Article: AT&T Sunsetting 2G Services on 1900MHz forum

Those that have 3G or 4G phones can't even use them on anything but EDGE in North Idaho since they haven't even got past EDGE service in many areas, come on at least give them 3G, they are so far behind every one else it's pitiful. Can you hear me now? NO!

Where my Son lives there is no 3G service, every device only can use Edge service at a maxximum, yet on either a few miles away is 3G, AT&T service is horrible here, we abandoned ship for verizon at my job because of it.

They still need to upgrade service, forget buying other companies, upgrade towers that have ONLY edge service to at least 3G!

Upgrade towers
Mar 5, 2012, 12:44 PM
in the Article: AT&T Sunsetting 2G Services on 1900MHz forum

There are areas that do not even have 3G, let alone 4G. People are forced to run on 2G Edge service, hope they get upgraded towers or bye bye service. North Idaho!

When are the shared family data plans coming out, it may be a better option than separate plans for each line.

North Idaho

New Plan Coverage
Oct 17, 2011, 1:54 PM
in the Article: T-Mobile Serves Up New Monthly4G Plans forum

Even with all the new plans and devices, their coverage area is poor, and GSM signal has been severely degraded in a lot of areas, no reception, dropped or missed calls, and their cohort AT&T who is trying to buy them out isn't any better, wake up people!

Wonder if they will allow us to use phones we already have, such as the ENV 2?

Re: Thank You Big Red

in the Article: Verizon to Launch $50 Prepaid Plan On Thursday forum

Be interesting to see if it's no roaming, or strictly their prepaid coverage which is a lot smaller area.

AT&T Service
Aug 27, 2011, 9:21 AM
in the Article: T-Mobile Defends Staffing Reductions, FCC Restarts Clock forum

AT&T Service is getting worse, signal levels have sunk, dropped calls and messages saying to try your call later are coming more prevailent, T-mobile is making a bad mistake, should upgrade their network and stay independant.

Seems like they know the takeover by AT&T isn't going to happen, why dump a bunch of money into a network to disband it less than a year later. Hope it never happens!

Having used both T-mobile and AT&T, I hope the merger falls flat on it's butt, and T-mobile reaps the benefit of the attempt.

Re: Full list of new markets
May 24, 2011, 9:42 AM
in the Article: T-Mobile Ratchets Up to 42Mbps in 55 Markets forum

I am not buying this aquisition of T-mobile by AT&T, T-mobile is doing too much expansion and upgrading to just lose it all in a year or so and have to change to a completely different network.
