To get T-Mobile WiFi Calling, you must have a T-Mobile purchased phone. The WiFi Calling feature is built into the phone's ROM, it isn't just an app that can be installed onto any phone.
I have a rooted phone running a non-stock ROM, and had no problem installing and using the T-Mobile WiFi calling .apk file. It doesn't work on every ROM, but it does not need to be an official ROM to work.
I'd love to see a technical reason why data caps are necessary, but so far it doesn't make sense.
It doesn't make sense to you or me, but it makes sense to a greedy company. They can charge you again for something they already charged you for. Double/Triple/Quadruple-dipping is the name of the game. Them solid gold Humvees and diamond swimming pools don't come cheap.
So why am I the only one asking what these other sources are?
This is purely a half-assed guess, since I have no insider information, but from what I gather they are likely talking about insiders within the production companies themselves leaking the videos. It has happened before.
Yeah, I always find that 'We must shelter the children from X' idea ridiculous.
It is ridiculous, and a serious disservice to the kids. The last things parents should do is put their kids into a bubble. When that bubble breaks (usually when they are 18 years old and on their own) they have no reality and no real understanding of how the world works, and no compass (I am not talking morals here,) in how to work with others who have different upbringings than their own. It may be easier on the parents to shield the kids from the world they live in, but it isn't easier on the kids or the society who eventually has to pick up the pieces when the bubble explodes.
I second this. They are awesome. Now if only they could get a network other than Sprint to reside on, they would be even more awesome. They have the best customer support team ever (they sit on the phone and work with you until the problem is fixed instead of tossing you back and forth like a volleyball in a volleyball game.
I use them for both Ting and Hover, and have had no problems with either (though I'd love to see them implement DNSSEC, but there always has to be something to hope for.) If they implemented 100mbps in my area at the same rate that my cable company is charging, I'd switch in a heartbeat (100mbps is twice what my current provider is providing for $80+/mo.) Sweeten the pot with 1 gbps at the same rate and I'd offer to help run the cable and have tea and cookies ready to go for the workers.
It's generally not a crime to make false statements in someone else's court.
It actually is. The problem is that the US court system has generally ignored all but the most egregious cases of perjury.
The problem right now is that they run fast enough that nobody gets near the money during investigation.
The problem right now is that the courts tend to treat the trolls, especially ones making a lot of money for the courts, as more important and more incorruptible than those of citizens even when those trolls turn out to be more crooked than a horizontal pole.
Have you tried to get a LLC or any other article of incorporation? Let alone a standard business license? You are required to provide a valid street address and phone number, else you will not get said article. There are businesses that don't yet have a business location for these, and some property owners won't lease to anybody that doesn't have a business license of any kind. So some folks give out their residence info thinking that they can change that once they get both their licenses and business location. And guess what they forget to do?
It costs some money, and the post office isn't really all that helpful, but it works for most cases. You can also use a third party "Mail-Boxes Etc." like approach in renting space there. The added advantage of this is that you can have them collect packages for you so you don't need to have them arrive on your doorstep.
Anyone who uses a real home address for their website (who doesn't want that to be made available,) is just lazy.
Except that AT&T was absolutely abusing their monopoly power pre-breakup. That's why they got broken up.
To add to this, there was a time, in recent history, where AT&T (Ma-Bell) controlled the system with such an iron fist where it was illegal to attach anything to a phone-line that didn't come from AT&T/Bell Labs. And AT&T prevented novel inventions (including some created by their own people) from being used for many years due to their monopoly abuse. Things like telephone answering machines, speaker phones, fax machines, and modems were outlawed and as a result, the world had to wait 60 years after their invention for Government to finally outlaw AT&T outlawing the future.
This astonishes me. I've never before heard of an HOA that will pay for your house to be painted, decked, or roofed! All I've ever heard of in connected to these activities is that the HOA will dictate what color you will paint your house and what style your deck and roofing will be.
All the ones I know are the same as what you've seen. The ones in my city even dictate that you have to have clean, well-kept lawns (we live in a desert,) using the particular type of lawn they require (tall-fescue) and all of this is your responsibility to pay for including the tons of water required to keep tall-fescue alive during mandatory water restrictions. They outlawed zero-scape, and have threatened to take houses away from folks who have zero-scaped. I know of no HOA in my area that paints your house or even maintains the roads (the city is responsible for that.)
I live in a non-HOA community, and am very happy that I can put in a yard that looks nice and doesn't require water, but as a result, there are houses on the street which don't look the same as other houses and we do have houses that look like parking lots and trash-heaps (though the city does enforce vehicle and trash abatement codes.)
Which should be a Felony crime. Y'know, cause it's fraud.
Sadly, it is only a crime when we do it. If you have enough money to pay for lobbyists and lawyers, you needn't worry yourself about petty issues.
I suspect if I tried to tell them I was going to pay them up-to $80/mo and remove a bunch of money off in hidden refunds, I'd be looking at some jail time (though likely they'd just drop me as a customer and deal with collections for the owed amount.)
Or even a Cessna or other single or dual engine low altitude aircraft, those things are practically made out of Tupperware now. But the forces on a 747 at 520 mph at FL40 is a little bit more than the forces on a Cessna at 220 mph at 8,000 ft.
I always found it strange that some of the few third parties in which we have an expectation of privacy are library records and postal mail, both essentially run or managed by government.
Actually, there is no expectation of privacy on the metadata collected by the post office. They know where you mailed a letter from and where it is going to, but not the contents (although, you can't really be sure of that.)
Libraries usually are managed at a local level. But I agree with you, they do tend to be an anomaly in all of this.
John had better hope that the poor schmuck he finds on Craigslist doesn't like to do Google searches on and prospective employers
Sadly, there will always be some lawyer stupid and/or greedy enough to fall for this. After all, Scientology still exists despite all the bad press it has (and still uses Craigslist to sucker poor folks looking for help into attending sales pitches for their "religion".) All John has to do is not put his name on it and not mention Prenda, and someone will likely jump at the opportunity.
