    Make sure you have signal on the T-Mobile network in your area. If the coverage map shows "Fair", it usually means none from my experience.

    Yes, specific networks can reject hotspot in otherwise capable phones that ask for permission. In Moto phones that started with the G7 and later. It does not seem to matter if these are TF branded or...

    You are not going to see a lot of the higher frequency bands around here, as the range is not very good. Mostly forested hills. The tower heights are also low because of the local NIMBY governments....

    Verizon has been using B5 for LTE here for a couple of years. The hierarchy is B66, B5, B13. They will be using some of that for "nationwide" 5G with DSS. Nor sure what is here, as I don't have a 5G...

    I don't know how you are even getting to the Sprint website, as everything redirects to T-Mobile when I try. Do you have to have a Sprint account?

    After reading the T-Mobile FCC response, seems they are not guaranteeing any other network compatibility after a Sprint unlock. Why they mention MSL code is strange, as they state that is for devices...

    File the FCC Consumer Complaint form. Try and keep the Description to just a few sentences. They should know that a Sprint issue will be with T-Mobile.

    My concern is only about the loss of Yahoo Mail, which I have relied on for many years. There is a wealth of history stored there that will have to be backed up somehow if it looks doomed. The only...

    Unlocked for GSM, but I doubt for CDMA. Unknown if this model has VoLTE on T-Mobile. Does not have Band 71, which can be necessary in some areas.

    Only the major carriers can activate an eSIM AFAIK. iPhones with an eSIM also have a regular SIM slot, and would think the Android phones with eSIM do also. Not aware that anybody has eSIM specific...

    I see no indication that they have these phones anymore. Even if they did, they would be locked to Sprint from the factory as yours is. Without a factory unlock, you can't use this phone in any other...

    No carrier is going to require a 5G phone anytime soon (5 years?). Much of the "Nationwide" 5G requires 4G as a control network (DSS) anyway.

    There is not much use for carrier WiFi calling in most circumstances. Maybe limited to inside large commercial buildings where the cell network signal will not penetrate, but do have WiFi. Some rural...

    T-Mobile obviously does not care about that business segment, and are willing to loose those customers rather than change. Special phones for "Joe Sixpack" types are not a priority, or they would...

    An unlocked Moto XT1768 E4 should be compatible with T-Mobile, with the exception of not having B71 for extended range. The Verizon branded variant may not support VoLTE on T-Mobile, which could make...

    Good suggestion! In the old days of using FoxFi it was sometimes possible to USB tether if WiFi hotspot would not work. I just tried it on my Moto G5 Plus, and it shows as "Network3" in the list of...

    Sonim still sells these phones to both Verizon and AT&T, so they should know the UICC SIM unlock codes. OP was told by Sonim it required a carrier request, which T-Mobile seems to not want to do. I...

    Someone said you can latch on hotspot if data is off, but it flips off with a notice when turning data back on.

    There are now a number of confirmations that the Moto G7 and G Power have no hotspot on the Tracfone companies that don't have that in their plans. I would expect this restriction on branded phones,...

    Not only lacks in infrastructure, but even devices for some markets. Sprint sold a lot of Sonim ruggedized business flip phones, that T-Mobile doesn't seem to want to deal with on their network. They...

    Is the Moto G7 a BYOD factory unlocked model, or branded model from a Tracfone company? I believe the lockout for hotspot started with the G7, as the G6 or earlier does not have it.

    I am thinking it is an account lock in some cases. Some models like the Moto G Power will not do hotspot on Tracfone, but will on Straight Talk and Total Wireless that have hotspot in their plans....
