Comment Re:How much for a de-gorped phone? (Score 1) 198

It was an older 3G phone (I think -- it's been a while), and then I got a SIM card for an assistive voice device, which would never get more than 1 bar (if I was lucky).

How can I try it out without buying one?

Also if you're familiar with the area, I'm in the west San Fernando Valley, if it helps.

Some people who live in areas without good coverage from T-Mobile, considered the most customer-friendly U.S. carrier, may choose Verizon or Sprint in order to avoid AT&T, the U.S. carrier with the worst customer service.

I fall into this category. I do not live in the boonies... I live INSIDE the LA City Limits... and I tried T-Mobile and got no signal. I would drop Verizon like a rock if I could get T-Mobile coverage at my house.

Wasn't L.A. the only one in recent(!) memory to turn a profit?

And that was probably because everything was already there... The Coliseum, Pauly Pavillion, the Sports Arena (RIP), The Forum, the Rose Bowl...

I think the only thing that really had to be built was the aquatic center, and I think USC covered most of that.
