That's right, remove your offending comment so no one else can ever see it and then publicly blame ME for misunderstanding YOU. That's class. Why not just say.... "I was wrong for what I said. I apologize jpadc." That's how a moderator could set a better tone on the board.

I never suggested Nissan couldn't fix this. I said they won't. I knew that the minute Nissan made me sign a statement that indicated I was aware that they could not control what happened to Carwings after December 1, 2016, even though I was buying an S model that did not have Carwings.
JeremyW, a well respected member here, or some other 3rd party may well be able to get a swap of the radio/sim to carry data over t-mobile. That's not the problem. The problem will always be getting Nissan to be willing to allow ANY non-contracted carrier to send signals to the car that controls any aspect of its operation. Given that this is the subject of current pending federal regulations:

there is not a chance that Nissan will open a path to allow non-contracted parties to potentially control their cars remotely. You and some others here don't seem to appreciate the dangers of doing so. I'll admit that inviting current LEAF owners to join the new Nissan connect portal is an encouraging sign from Nissan that they won't just abandon current owners (or a disingenuous way to avoid owner outrage right now as they are trying to launch the new model), and I also think AT&T won't just cut off service everywhere in December but just as towers get upgraded they won't include 2G so the death will be drug out over a long time.
I know opinions differ, but given the fact that Nissan has not lifted a finger on a battery replacement path outside of a required legal settlement, mine's not based on blind hope.
