SyrupCast Podcast Ep. 142: When in Roam

    We got a trio for this week’s roaming and unlocked themed episode. Host Igor along with Rose and Patrick.

    The anecdotes offered by Patrick and Rose made for an interesting listen. Their jobs, no doubt, require them to use roaming services more frequently than a vast majority of listeners and it was nice to be exposed to the hoops they have to jump through to maintain connectivity. I wish the trio would have provided advice or best practices for “normal” people planning trips. Not only on how to save money but how to get the type of connectivity people might need. This would have added a level of usability to what was otherwise a fine discussion.

    The second segment was an excellently executed discussion on unlocked phones. There’s a lot of nuance to getting an unlocked device and this kind of exposition offers a useful service to listeners. This segment should be considered required listening for anyone looking to not be tied to a carrier’s contract, especially with respect to band 66 compatibility.

    I’ve noticed that my last 4 commnents/reviews have been deleted. If MobileSyrup prefers that I stop offering these reviews just let me know and I’ll, for lack of a better term, retire.

    This week’s show gets a 8.5 SMSPR (Subjective MobileSyrup Podcast Review) score. This week’s DCS (Dopey Comment Score) is 0. Themed episodes are a forte here; keep them coming.
