T-Mo "expert" tells me it cannot be done with the 6T.

I am hardly an expert when it comes to Android. I probably fall in the "above average" category, but some days I mostly tolerate it.

My wife will be hunting for a new phone by summer. She will likely stick with Android, but she may jump ship to iPhone since that's what our 3 daughters use. Apple's Facetime will be a strong consideration for her.

I'm not sure how you keep track of stuff like this, has to be more than memory.  But to the point, T-Mo has been terrific.  Calls, coverage and service has been without fault.  This phone will/can do a lot more than I need or use.  And the service price at $50.00/ month is half of Verzion costs.   Actually I wouldn't mind taking some instruction on how to do things.  My daughter uses an Iphone and does stuff with it I normally would do on my computer.  It seems as if she has Word on her I 10.

My only gripe is with Android I think.  My last phone would let me control picture size with a couple of simple button pushes.  The 6T or current version of Android lost that bit of functionality.  I went to the T-Mo store thinking I was missing something.  Seems the only control of picture size is the ability to crop, which is not the same as choosing 800x800 or 640x480.
Unless of course you have a fix.......

I didn't think you were, just stating the facts.  One could spend a fortune on a home theater system, I probably spent too much on speakers but after all I enjoy what I've invested in.  If my room were more accommodating I likely would have spent more.

You know, I didn't mean to come across as flippant on this (if'n I did). Your experience on setting up your sound system remains valuable to me. "Starting out simple" for me is a matter of budget more than anything.

Bill, next month will be a year since you switched to T-Mo. I know that no wireless carrier is perfect, but overall how has T-Mo worked out for you compared to Verizon?

Coverage? Customer service? Pricing?

Any regrets?

This is the one you're referring to: One Life Amazing Animation by Corey Hayes

Check this one out, where a fake Neil Young (Jimmy Fallon) is joined by the real deal: Two Neil Youngs Sing "Old Man"

This has been among my favorite songs since the first day I heard it. I was fortunate to see the Moody Blues in concert in the 90s, although it was ruined by dope smokers in the audience.

Most likely I'll start out with an easy upgrade, such as a high quality soundbar/subwoofer setup. Part of my mentality is keeping it simple, as it's easy to go overboard when it comes to sound. I once had a high-end Yamaha receiver that required a PhD in physics, with a minor in Remote Control Devices.

It doesn't help that sound systems continue to evolve on what seems like a yearly basis.
