hungryghost: I was doing some server maintenance last night. Bigger question is, don't you guys ever sleep?
Chelle: Sleep is for the weak
Don't you mean sleep is for the week (yawn)?
Long time no snark with especially with R+ members going to various cell providers I rarely troll the forums anymore. I'm down to providing just 1 kid with cell service and went with Tello because of the fallback to 64k when LTE data is used up (which it is in days). I have a spare on Pay as you go which I rarely use. I do need to find a good prepaid with data for my main cell so I'm still looking/lurking.
Chelle: I've become a big fan of Freedompop's LTE SIM and even their VOIP app.
Oh, you and your apps! I'm still using Facebook lite. Now you're forcing me to hours of forum reading from R+ and Nth? So much info, so little time.
Interesting what I've read it's a love or hate relationship with FP, not many in the middle. In fact I was going to sacrifice a spare phone just to try them out before I port my decades old cell number to some unknown. Want to do some research? I tried what I usually start with for super technical data and searched CellNUVO from the huge database called YouTube. Of the 31 results, none had the word cellnuvo in the title but instead had freedompop. Did you have something to do with that? Give it a try, and thanks for the Free(dom) tip!

KentE: FWIW, these differing results were from very savvy users, using roughly similar devices (although not identical). @Chelle has had very good results, but this doesn't seem to be universal. Tests with different phones, in the same location, showed markedly different results in the success of receiving incoming calls. The other identifiable possibility is that Chelle's experience reported above is with the FreedomPop At&T LTE SIM, and the other test results I've been following are on the Sprint BYOD service. (On the Sprint side, some devices were pretty good about receiving incoming calls, and some were rather dismal.)
AHHH!! So now I have to add so many handsets to the so many forums to read? With all the R+ deals of past I now have > a dozen phones just sitting around. Come think when I bought 2 Sprint Moto e from C7 last year one of them I think was locked to FP and seemed to have a custom OS screen. Being C7 they shipped out another Moto and didn't want the FP model back so I just shelved it. Need to check on that. I also have at least one Boost LG Tribute HD from the huge find last year when the $79 phone went to $49, then $29 so you couldn't afford not to buy several. Thanks to a member idea here, all were swapped into then back out with R+ to "FED proof them". 2 went to Ting then Tello and work fine. Time to look at the FP website again...
KentE: It seems apparent to me that one's success is using their VoIP voice service may depend largely on the phone being used-- some seem to have significantly higher incidence of missing incoming calls.
