Sorry about that! And thanks for your reply. The route is SFO-BCN (non-stop) in Premium Economy. I could shift 1000 BA Avois over, but I'd still get the same error until I hit the correct number of...

Sorry, I was unclear. What I meant to say was that Verizon does not have coverage in places where Stork does not have coverage. Like in the mountains, remote villages, etc. And these are just casual...

Stork Mobile eSIM

I know we already have an eSIM thread, but that thread's been filling up with strategies to convert your US SIM to an eSIM. And that's not what I'm up to, so I thought I'd start a new thread.

Suggestion: Get money from me, not ads

Did you know?

Instead of begging me to disable my ad blocker, I'd be delighted to subscribe to FT and pay 10X whatever measly revenue you might get from banner ads.

Can you help me? Thank you...

I'm interested in how you prop up your iPhone. I have an iPhone X and have become enamored of Netflix downloads. But I don't have a good stand.

I don't answer any calls I don't recognize. But in the last year or two, I've been amused by pre-recorded message, which often use casual language and vocal ticks: I like the idea that someone is...
