I agree with u 100% I can't stand it at all and I hate to say this but they don't seem to care because they told me they have no plans on changing the throttling speeds.let's see how many customers they continue to lose over this. I was one of them but throttling wasn't the main reason I left but it was one.mcfart wrote: ↑Sep 3rd, 2017 11:42 pmI should def say that the throttling is bascically the same as cutting your cord after hitting your data limit. Can't even listen to Google Music/Spotify at lowest quality. Reddit (and this site) load but gl loading larger sites. Also I noticed that after using ~500mb more (i left stuff running overnight to test throttling thresholds) I got throttled to 10kb/sec whereas I was at 30kb/sec before, and was NOT texted to warn my of extra throttleing. Throttling is just a synonym for "get off our network until your data resets".
They really should offer the 3gb/$10 addon as many times as you want. Everyone would win that way. Or improve throttled speeds to 256 kiloBYTES not bits lol.

That's not their selling feature. They sell "no overage charges". For that, you rather go prepaid (Chatr or Public) in my opinion, as their "phone deals" aren't much of a deal (unless you stay for 24 months, which means paying for access to a crummy network for a fifth of a decade).
Not as bad as two years.

Free unlocks as of December 1st. I negotiated with Freedom Mobile. They charge $30 for the unlock, but they offered a $20 credit, thus dropping it to $10 for the unlock. 3rd party unlocking service charge $35-55 for Freedom Mobile Android unlock codes, so I don't see much "freedom" there.

I know, I work with one of the big 3 we do the reprogramming of every phone that arrives.titaniumtux wrote: ↑Sep 18th, 2017 10:49 amFree unlocks as of December 1st. I negotiated with Freedom Mobile.

Also, when you can't unlock the bootloader, you don't have much "freedom" with your phone. I like rooting, flashing custom ROM's, etc. and would like to do this with any Android phone.

Set your phone to WCDMA, I have the same thing on ZTE Grand X4jordanr19871 wrote: ↑Sep 18th, 2017 3:41 pmI switched to freedom and got the lg g6 with $40/month + $25 tab
in London its fine - I live in apartment and don't lose signal in elevator or anything
but when you go to the outskirts some areas are still considered 'away' even though you aren't that far out of London
and one thing I noticed now is when I place a call it takes a good 30 seconds before it starts ringing
finally one day I looked down and noticed my signal goes from LTE>no signal>4g
then end the call and it goes back to no signal > LTE
this is really an inconvenience because now I can't use my apartment buzzer because it gets a busy tone - which I think is the network switching

It will set the phone is 3g 4g, if your out side set it back to LTE specially if you use data.
