Re: Figure it Out Now
@afwriter - seriously, it's annoying when you're the in middle of the grocery store and are trying to text message or call someone to find out if you need to buy something, only to find your phone exists in a complete dead zone. I've had to leave the store, call me husband, and go back in. And honestly, if I'd had my kids with me and that would have been the situation, I probably would have just given up on the idea of going to the store completely. I'm not walking in and out of a store with 3-4 kids in tow to find out what my husbands wants for his lunches.

Um... No thank you?
"applications that need 300GB per second have to operate over 28GHz on 5G, meaning a signal range will be extremely short and easily interruptible by even a thin wall."

Maybe it's just me, but I don't really see this as "better." That speed is going to have to be REALLY impressive for me to overlook this, if they don't solve it. I don't have a phone for it to only be viable when I'm outdoors. If this is going to be the case, I'll be happy to keep my 4G.

Figure it Out Now
Nothing is more frustrating than being in the middle of a building and actually needing your phone for something only for it to not work. Hopefully, they will figure this hurdle out now before widespread adoption if for no other reason than I don't want the headache.
