Again, why? I don't mean to put down your threads, but what is the purpose of this one? Taxes vary greatly from city to city. Why is posting them useful?

 

I just want an idea on how much wireless providers charge in different areas. Some wireless companies charges more than others. Do you think wireless taxes are unfair in some areas?

If that's the case, anecdotal posts will not prove anything. How about you get some bills from your friends with the major carriers in the same taxing locale and compare them? That would be provide you with a much more accurate answer.

Well how much are you paying for wireless taxes? I noticed you live in the State of Texas like me and about 300 miles away. What is your tax rate? State should be the same of course.

How come wireless companies like AT&T and T-Mobile does not charge the Administrative Charge, but they do charge the Regulatory Charge when Sprint and Verizon charges for both?

The administrative charge is a corporate processing fee not a tax... $1.50 per line for Sprint. Verizon charges $0.99 per line, but VZW's regulatory charge is only $0.16 per line. The regulatory charge is a fee related to handling FCC paperwork and governmental tax filings.

Our County Treasurer confirmed, today, that we now live and have lived since before getting
Sprint Cell Phone Service, in Winnebago County, not in the City of Rockford.

Sprint Customer Service can not explain why bill item, 'Winnebago County-If Appl & State Excise Tax'
was changed to 'Rockford City-If Appl & State Excise Tax' and charge for this item increased by 85.88%
from our March to our April bill.

33.5% of our Basic (not Smart Phone) Phone 4 line Service Plan cost of $87.17 was added for Surcharges,
Taxes and Fees.  15.1% for Sprint Surcharges and 18.4% for Government Taxes and Fees.

    • What devices should do, and what they actually do, are two very different things! As you've probably heard me mention countless times, many of those screens get information in a proprietary manner directly from the modem; apps like SignalCheck can only get what the OS is reporting. I did find your earlier reports, and as I guessed, the OS was reporting valid signal strength. I will try to figure out a solution.
    • Service mode shows the SIM as having no service, so I would think the device should report that. I believe I sent a diagnostic report a little while back—can you check to see if you have it?
    • Interesting, that doesn't happen on my P7. Can you send me a diagnostic report the next time you see that please? Hopefully the phone isn't actually reporting the -115, that will be tricky.
    • Hey Mike—another dual SIM bug. If one SIM loses service, it doesn’t disappear from the app.  I’ve seen this a couple times—my Dish SIM will lose service (confirmed in service mode), but SCP won’t stop displaying -115 or so. And it logs a data point at that signal every time the location updates.  Along the same lines, I have a custom trigger set up for 313340 (Dish), and the custom trigger keeps firing when this is happening.
