    I have a similar wish. I'd just like to be able to differentiate incoming GV calls from regular calls. Right now they both have the same ring tone and I can't find a setting to use a different ring...

    Look at the model number. Is it a SM-G973U? If so, it should have LTE bands #1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 13, 14, 17, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 28, 29, 30, 38, 39, 40, 41, 46, 66 & 71. The bands used for LTE...

    You first have to define "cell service". I recall one time in the early '90s talking with someone who had assured his boss that he'd get cellular phone service everywhere in the state. This meant...

    I think that right now, increasing coverage (sqmi) is not priority #1, rather integrating band 41 into the 5G coverage is. The coverage boost, such as it was, came when T-Mobile opened Sprint's band...

    If you put the number into the "Favorites" in Scam Shield it's supposed to whitelist them (for you). The issue is that sometimes the calls originate from numbers that are a digit or two different...

    You might want to check the T-Mobile coverage map on CellMapper.net. Being crowd-sourced, it's a bit more realistic than T-Mobile's maps.

    Did I say it causes cancer? You can transmit mmWave thousands of miles through a vacuum, the problem is caused by humidity. If a medium shuts down when it rains, you have to engineer it assuming it...

    Not really, they just need to have enough backup power to assure continuity of service. Remember, in a 5G world, a "cell site' can be a paint-can-sided thing hanging on a light-pole. However, the...

    So, when you zoom way in on T-Mobile's coverage map, you get different shades of magenta and sometimes tan. The tan indicates LTE roaming, which in the case of Maine is US Cellular (USCC).
