[Weekend Poll & Discussion] How Long Have You Been With Your Current Wireless Carrier? Why Have You Stuck With Them (Or Not)?

Wireless carriers should, in theory, just be dumb pipes you choose from on the basis of coverage and cost, but oftentimes we hear from commenters who have stuck it out with one provider or another in spite of poor service or high rates. We want to know how long you've been with your current wireless carrier continuously - as in, how many months in a row have you had service with this provider?

I'm currently semi-stuck on AT&T here in the US, semi-by choice, and pay a semi-reasonable-I-guess cost for my service. I've been on AT&T now for a solid 2.5 years continuously, though I'm thinking I may switch later this year if T-Mobile really does keep improving coverage and service outside of major metro areas.

T-Mobile's LG G Stylo And LG Leon Are Being Updated To Android 5.1.1, With A Wi-Fi Calling Fix For Good Measure

Well this is a pleasant surprise. The mid-range LG G Stylo and LG Leon both appeared on T-Mobile's lineup just a couple of months ago, and now they're getting their first significant updates. Significant in fact because they're coming to the very latest public build of Android. T-Mobile's support pages for both phones were updated this morning telling users to expect an over-the-air update to Android 5.1.1. Both phones (also somewhat surprisingly) ran Lollipop 5.0 when they first launched on the US carrier.

Both phones are getting additional fixes on top of the extra Android features in 5.1, namely "improved battery life (for Wi-Fi Calling) and display." Exactly what improving the display entails isn't mentioned.
