Julie’s gadget diary – Test driving T-Mobile day 2

Yesterday was my first day testing a phone on T-Mobile’s network. I was very encouraged with the speedtest.net results at my house and even in my basement. Considering that I live in the middle of 12 wooded acres with no DSL, cable, etc., it’s surprising that they have LTE in my immediate area. But I just happen …

Julie’s gadget diary – Test driving T-Mobile day 1

Yesterday I posted about my discovery that T-mobile coverage in my area actually exists now. I was excited to give them a try so I signed up for their free Test Drive plan on Friday and received an iPhone 5s this afternoon. I get to use the phone for seven days before returning it to a T-mobile …

Julie’s gadget diary – Darnit, T-Mobile coverage is still weak in my area

Back in 2014, Dave Rees wrote about his positive experience when he switched to T-Mobile. He would regularly suggest that I also try T-Mobile’s Test Drive kit, which at that time provided an iPhone and a SIM card on loan for a week’s worth of testing. In May of last year, I finally ordered my …

T-Mobile Pocket PC Phone Edition Review

Synchronization Requirements: Device: Windows PC 98, 2000, NT, XP or later I’ve been interested in integrating my main PDA with a mobile phone ever since reviewing the Handspring Treo 180 earlier this year. That device didn’t work out for me due to less than adequate GSM coverage in my area. But, in the short while …

Raven dashcam and connected car system review

REVIEW – I have tested many different brands of dash cams that offer HD and 4K resolution and a few additional features and they all seem to be close to the same with a few minor exceptions. When I first heard about the Raven Connected Car Device, my thought was, “here we go again”. Was I right? Let’s …

Skyroam SOLIS 4G LTE Global WiFi hotspot review

When we are researching for places to spend our vacation, I always ask Jeanne to make sure that the place where we’ll be staying has internet access.

LG G3 Android smartphone review

I’m crazy lucky (although some would use the word spoiled) because I have the opportunity to review any phone that runs on Verizon’s network. I just tell my Verizon contact what I’d like to do a review and they send me a loaner phone for a couple weeks. Yeah, I’m definitely spoiled. So much so that I haven’t really …
