Re: [PLUG] Update: Update: Off-topic: Cell Phone Call Quality

Call quality and data performance are highly dependent on the quality of
the handset, though, and many MVNOs provide very low quality handsets in an
effort to compete with financed handsets via the main operators. This may
have been used as "evidence" of MVNO inferiority in the past. With BYO
handsets being more and more common, carrier financing slowly declining,
and a number of very high quality unlocked handsets now being available,
I'd say this is a declining concern.

That makes perfect sense. I am on a BYO plan with T-Mobile (no phone included) but now that you can bring your own handset to a reseller plan, instead of being stuck with their $50 smartphone, it might be worth investigating if the price is right.
