Re: Killer product
Susan: Yes, many times! Unfortuately i am locked up in their 2 year contract now. I have them for phone, data, TV and mobile. They provide the best service in my area and where i travel. Plus i don't feel the sting as much since my company reimburses me for mobile and data. But if that were not the case....

Re: Killer product
I hope you are right Susan. Verizon is expensive and when overseas, I have been hit for some impressive mobile charges. Even got hit for some text charges even though i have free international texts. Almost everything VZ has is expensive. Like FIOS. Thankfully part of my mobile and internet service is reimbursed by my company.

Re: Killer product
tjgkg, fortunately, some carriers are now selling unlocked phones and SIMs. Customers will start migrating and at some point those like Verizon will have to unlock their devices and SIMs unless they want to lose all their customers. /Susan

TerryB, March is still winter and still snowy in Finland, yes. It's true what they said, especially in the north. All the ice/brakers work in Finland. There is plenty to do in winter. :) It sounds like all that was a great experience for you. How nice. :) /Susan

Re: Killer product
Susan, it was March 6, something like that. Still 100 inches of snow on ground and they were telling me the frozen bay they have might melt around end of May. :-)  That's where icebreaker was docked. Sounded like it was more museum/restaurant than working ship anymore. But captain did say it still worked, they took dinner cruises in warmer weather.

Not likely I'll make another trip anytime soon. For most part, as primarily a developer, I don't travel much anymore. But some of guys were going anyway and I wanted to look at shop floor barcode system Pori was using before creating the one we use now. Copenhagen was even more of fluke thing, Corp was looking to pick new ERP system and had consultants running workshop to collect requirements. Got a trip to Times Square/Manhatten out of that exercise also. Nothing like NYC on the expense account. :-)

Re: Killer product
@Susan, if Samsung includes the Dual-SIM option in the S7, it will be a good incentive for users to upgrade from a Note 4 to a S7.

Another approach is that of Apple SIM, currently it seems that Apple SIM only works for the iPad and it creates carrier flexibility for the user while traveling. It would be nice if the functionality of Apple SIM is expanded to cover the iPhone.

Now that you mentioned it, you are right about Whatapps. There are a few contacts in my phone that are utilized by family members of an individual -- call the individual through a carrier line and the intended individual is reached but, message the individual through Whatapps on the same number and it reaches their family member.
