    Just to be clear. This is not the T-Mobile ONE 55+ plan. I don't qualify for Quibi. No love for the bottom feeders. :rolleyes:

    And that is the big question. For all CDMA's failings, range is not one of them. Some rural customers may be getting in-car signal boosters before long.

    I noticed another band 71 upgrade in Gulfport, MS yesterday. There could be more. I'm not getting out much these days. My phone tends to find band 71 more often, which may have something to do with a...

    Well, I did raise the question if it would be better to divide a contiguous 30x30 block into a 20x20 plus a 10x10 or two 15x15 blocks.

    No. 20x20 is the maximum but that does not mean that a carrier can't own more than that.

    And the coverage commitments are so low, they're easy to satisfy.

    No two carriers' networks exactly "match" each other. I know places where AT&T has good service while Verizon struggles and vice versa. Heck, I've been in places with a good T-Mobile signal where...

    A band-25 MFBI is just a software configuration update. My point is that I doubt that anyone would trade a band 5, 2 or 4 block for an equivalent amount of the band 26, 25 or 66 extensions. They...

    I doubt that anyone would be willing to help T-Mobile by taking G-block. With T-Mobile now having so much band-41 I doubt they'd see the need to tweak their PCS holdings. "I need to study on this...

    Exactly. And the mess is that the original A-block has been disaggregated both spatially and in frequency slices. T-Mobile may only have the upper 10x10 of the original 15x15 A-block. (Dusting off...

    As someone who has been a T-Mobile customer for 20+years, the one thing I appreciate Legere's doing is breaking the link between the device you use and the service they provide. That "free phone" if...

    I'm confused. I thought in NYC T-Mobile had the PCS A-block (10x10), the adjacent D-block (5x5) Sprint has the B-block (15x15) and the G-block (5x5) The order of the PCS blocks by frequency are A,...

    That's fine but it doesn't address @Jack Hagar's questions about if/when to expect service where he lives.

    I wouldn't suggest that until band-71 phones become as common as phones with band-12.

    T-Mobile appears to have band 2 on the vast majority of their AZ towers. So, it should go just about like most other markets.

    N95 masks need to be reserved for healthcare workers. N95 masks have to be combined with other PPE (e.g. face shield, plastic head covering, gloves, etc) to be effective.

    The cheap paper masks,...

    No. Band 26 is Sprint's low-band. It's the same as band 5 but with a 10 MHz extension on the low side of the blocks. Sprint's band 26 licenses will be transferred to DISH. Sprint's mid-band is band...

    There may be some incompatibility but it's not lack of GSM, which US Cellular also lacks. VoLTE is all that is needed. I think that T-Mobile is just not interested in letting its customers roam on...

    It used to be that "mid-band" was 1GHz to 2GHz. "High-band" was above 2GHz. That was before mmWave. It now seems that people are calling anything from 1GHz to 5GHz "mid-band" and everything above...

    Just for S&G, I did a manual network search today. On my T-Mobile account Sprint is still marked "forbidden." I don't know if that's a SIM thing or a network thing. AT&T is not so marked.

    Thanks for that link. Some of those parings seem strange. Using band 29 as a download augmentation for band 66 seems, well, bizarre. The two aggregations that would seem most helpful to DISH would be...

    Not sure. Didn't Sprint have many (several) different SIMs depending on the device it was to be used in? I recall it being a mess. It will be interesting to see how it's handled.

    Sooner or later...
