    Also happy I made the switch. I haven't even tried to use it, but I thought Netflix was included. No sweat to me if not though.

    The only downside, if it applies, is you cannot add anything to the two phones, including a MiFi/hotspot device. You can run a hotspot from your phone but you can't have a separate device with it's own number.

    The new bands were essential for me, all the new sites are on the new spectrum, and that is what is covering my house. I tested a T-Mo sim card in an older Samsung phone and had lousy coverage. Got a phone with the new bands in it and bingo!.

    Can you Tmo folks with LG or Samsung phones talk and use the web at the same time?

    I was told iPhone 6's and later can on Tmobile but concerned about newer Androids.

    Thanks

    I'm using an Amazon discounted Moto phone on T'mo, no problems at all. In my area, T'mo has great coverage.

    For those trying to use WiFI, some phones can prioritize wifi where available.

    Peace,
    Tom

    Samsung G7: talk and use web at same time - yes. I think it more a capability/limitation of the phone than the carrier. T-Mobile LTE supports it (as well as voice over IP / wifi calling).

    Well I made the jump. So far so good. But I did learn the included tethering on this plan is only 3G. They charge $10 extra per phone if you want LTE and you also get full Gogo vs 1 hour per flight. Still not a bad package even with adders. Will see if I need it over time.

    The guy in the store asked me to pay $10 per line extra (1 or both lines) and he claims you then get LTE tethering and unlimited GoGo. It was the store manager and he was ready to add it. I didn't go for it. But I just tried it on a flight, the 1 hr is strictly enforced.

    But if you are traveling alone, you can enter 1 phone number for the first hour, drop off, and then start over with the second number entered and get a second hour.

    Also I learned you get the WiFi calling symbol active on GoGo but you can't call. And it takes about 2-4 minutes after you get GoGo access for the WiFi symbol to go from Red to White and then you can text as normal. And MMS pictures don't download.

    Can you tether/bridge the 1 hour GoGo to your laptop or is it restricted to your phone? I'm guessing the later but

    Its phones only. No tablets or PC's. I read that somewhere.
    It worked OK, a bit slow on the phone so I can't imagine that a PC web screen would be a good experience. Email and txting worked ok on the phone.
