@purism I thought Purism mentioned they were going to do internet voip/sip service for getting a phone number rather than traditional phone service. Todd mentioned that everything would go over the data connection so that someone could get any SIM card with data and treat it like a “dump pipe.” Disappointed to see this is no longer the case, especially for an overpriced phone plan instead.
Exactly. I was (and still am) really hoping to transfer my Google voice number to some Librem One voice service, but seeing this makes me worry about the solvency of @purism .
Paying $35/month for unlimited with T-mobile, but maybe I'd consider this **if** my carrier starting sending me targetted ads. (Number porting is a must though, maintaining 2 phone numbers is hard enough)
@purism this looks interesting, can ability to create virtual number be added? (Giving out not real number while signing up for services/websites etc.)
@purism Jeez. I like where this is heading :D As someone who is living in a country that requires all cellphone customers to be identified, I wonder if this is even legal??
It works with the Librem 5? Cool... but when can we actually buy a Librem 5?
"Pre-order. Place your order now, get it in approximately 6 months!"
@purism puh i hope you don't overstrain here...
Available in the US only.
@purism What happened to the Librem Dial? Is it still a thing or has it been replaced by the AweSIM?
@purism Hope to get this in EU :)
@purism Love u! can't wait till this becomes global!! well... I can wait, I'm broke and can't afford any of ur products, but still awesome that this is finally going down, it was the last piece of the puzzel!
@purism I guess the 100$ is actually worth it now. I'll give it a shot once I got a job. Would it be possible to only get the cellular data? I'm not planning on using a sim card once I get my L5 for that extra privacy.
@purism How quickly do you ship the sim after purchase? I have registered for the sim, a couple weeks ago, but haven't received it yet. Just curious if you ship and tracking information.
