RE: OTR Mobile - GRRRR

Those restrictions are in EVERY unlimited plan no matter the cost. There is no truly UNLIMITED plan in existence, none, not even at $250 per month. By the way, Visible did away with the 5mbs cap several years ago. Actually, there are a few people with grandfathered Verizon unlimited plans (no throttling or network management) that are still active. Verizon has been shutting them down for the last few years . . . but there's still a handful of us that still have them.

RE: OTR Mobile - GRRRR

It is in my phone - Galaxy S8+. I use it as a hotspot when we are camping all the time. Barney Nice plan for limited access. I believe only one device at a time can use the hotspot feature?

RE: OTR Mobile - GRRRR

Snip... If AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon wanted to provide truly unlimited data with no caps, no throttling, no anything, at a reasonable price, they would do it themselves. They don't need resellers to sell their product. They already have! Check out Visible by Verizon. I have been on their network for the past year and have had no place that was not covered. Unlimited minutes, texts, and data with no speed cap ever. $40/month all in. No extra charges at all. Barney Do you have the SIM in a phone or a physical hot spot?

RE: OTR Mobile - GRRRR

OTR Mobile, like other MVNOs, has been at the mercy of the main providers' (AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile) changing policies. The big 3 have discontinued or downgraded many of their own really good plans over the past couple years. Sometimes they grandfather existing plans . . . but not always. Try getting an unlimited Mobley Plan or adding an unlimited hotspot to AT&T's "Unlimited Plus" for $20. Verizon dropped their pre-paid unlimited hotspot plan a while back too.

RE: Verizon cell signal lost at night

Have you tried putting your phone in "Airplane" mode for a few minutes? This causes renegotiation with the towers and sometimes produces good results.

RE: DTV stopping DNS

Can someone explain to me how to get local network programming with Directv? I currently have Distant Network Programming. That is being cancelled on 6/1. I called and the rep told me the only way to get network programming is to stream it. I find that very hard to believe. Help please ! Here's an article on it:Local Programming going away?

RE: Look for Data Plan that throttles to greater than 3G

Anyone know of a LTE data only plan that.... beyond 50 GB is throttled to above 3G around 1 mbps (Besides Simple mobile) that is around $50 to 60 bucks a month? Thanks Are you wanting this data only plan for a hotspot, a tablet or . . . ?

RE: New Source of TV While on the Road

RobWNY makes a VERY valid point. All "unlimited" cell plans will slow down after XXX amount of high speed data has been used. They may throttle, or they may be "network managed". Be sure you understand the fine print of your "unlimited" plan.
