Another stupid cell phone question


When I am in Punta Chivato, the carrier on my AT&T changes constantly. TelCel, Movistar, some new ones I have never heard of... is it possible to lock into just one?

Absolutely maybe. :biggrin:

I look forward to someone's answer as well.

On my iphone6 you open settings, go to carrier, and take it off automatic. Wait till your list of carriers come up and select one.

You select one, and then when it's not available you've got none. Leave it be.

Download speedtest. select the courier with the best signal and use speedtest to see how much pipe they are giving you. While traveling, leave it on automatic.

With ATT you may need to contact support for the ability to use manual.

My iPhone 7 doesn't have the carrier option - maybe locked because it is an ATT phone? We are hopefully getting WiFi soon and that should alleviate most of the issues... very few of my apps function in Baja unless I am on really good WiFi.

I thought their internet was already a WiFi, in absence of a regular cable. Signal relayed through the set of repeater towers from Sta Rosalia or wherever the cable ends. Maybe somebody more technical will explain this better than me.

Ya I have no idea how it works, I just know a lot of neighbors have internet (which I call WiFi...). And pretty reasonable too. Something around $140 for equipment and $25 a month.
