AT&T shutting off "2G"

This actually isn't news, but I couldn't find discussion in this forum, so wanted to ask if anyone has heard any details about it. AT&T have announced that they're going to be discontinuing 2G, GPRS, and EDGE data on both 850 and 1900 bands. They are apparently also reallocating some usage of LTE data, but I don't have details handy (and they're not easy to find, at least by me).

I don't really know enough to understand the impact to, for example, GSM voice on 850 and 1900. Does anyone know which phones, if any, will be affected by this change (effective 1/1/17, but some changes going into effect sooner, according to some discussion)?

Need decent smartphone can use on ATT Gophone nw

I have a handicapped friend who's wanting some kind of touchscreen phone (Android or iOS would probly be ok) to go on her GoPhone acct. She's currently on a $45/mo plan, and I think wants a touchscreen kybd. Probly any 4.5" to 5.0" would be fine. Doesnt have to be new gen. Personally I like Samsung, HTC, LG. Need to keep cost under $75 on used type market.

Phones for ATT

I'm switching from Sprint to AT&T and would like to bring my own device in order to take advantage of their lower price plans. Currently I have an iphone 4s 32gb. Does anyone have any suggestions on where I can find reasonable and reliable smart phones for AT&T or unlocked GSM phones? I have enjoyed my iPhone but I'm willing to use android as well.

iPhone and At&t wifi calling

Having switched from AT&T to Tmobile for a great plan with unlimited international calling and global data roaming, which I use extensively, I find that their coverage in the US is no where near adequate for me. I'm thinking of switching back but wanted to know when I will be able to use my wifi at home to make VoIP calls internationally. Does anyone know? Or have any ideas about calling internationally without rocketing my bill?
Thanks! Smile

MTI Map tool

Does anybody else just love this thing? It flat out shows coverage area and strength anywhere, so you're able to address coverage area concerns before you ever sell anybody a phone.

Where to get this deal...?

I'm looking to get into the cheapest what I'll call 'wake-up phone' I can get. My regular phone gets calls all the time so when I go to sleep I put it on silent. In case of an emergency I need a second 'wake-up phone' for my close friends and family to call to wake me up. This second phone would never get any talk time put on it as it would only be used to wake me up, at which point I would revert to my regular phone. Actually I had a pre-paid phone like this for a number of years through boost. It only cost me $5 every 90 days to keep it active. That was the minimum amount to keep an account open, and the re-boosts bought online were good for 90 days. Since I forgot and let my service lapse they won't let me get back into it now, said I was...

Upgrading from a Jurassic-era cell phone.

Not caring much about modern phones (for a long time) I have used an old Nokia 6340i GAIT phone since 2006. True, it was backward-looking even for 2006 but won academy awards for grabbing and holding cellular signal in a very weak signal area (and had an external antenna port, to boot).

A recent move has gotten me a bit closer to stronger cellular reception (from "almost non-existent" to "weak to moderate") and it's enough to considering upgrading to something a bit more modern, as well as having the option of data access.

I've been reading/studying my options and talking with friends. If anyone would indulge me here, now I'd be interested to hear what total strangers have to say Smile

Question, setting aside whet...

The New Mobile Share Value plan

These plans don't exactly save money. But it does turn out to put a few dollars back in your pocket. Plus gaining unlimited talk in the process isn't so bad. It's a more complete plan.

Nexus 6 - Will it be PURE Android
