    I'm not pro or anti any carrier. I'm pro-consumer. The tool the FCC has to assure competition is setting rules to assure a distribution of spectrum that allows for at least four viable national...

    I think I've been convinced that it's not the SIM but rather the phone. There's an effect when you change a SIM from a phone that's roaming to a different one. The new phone can continue to roam on...

    This week? Meh. Nothing much.

    Anyone want two BK codes? PM me.

    I'll run it again to get another look. That mode is like reading a dissertation. I just noticed one moment it would say 5G NA band 71 and the next moment it would say LTE band 66.
  5. At my house it bounces between N71 and L66.

    Roaming 311-490 (Sprint): Is it the SIM?

    I just ran a little test with my Moto G7 Power. My wife's S20 5G has no trouble roaming 311-490 (Sprint) but I have not been able to roam that signal. I removed the SIM (TM9363) from her phone and...

    We recently got a S20 5G. There's a band 71 site a couple of miles from my home. The S20 says "5G" but when I run CellMapper, it shows the phone's on band 66 LTE. What I've read is that 5G phones...

    PR: Open Mobile & Band 13?

    I read what Wikipedia has to say about Open Mobile in PR and their stores going to Boost. What's not clear is if Open Mobile's band 13 licenses and infrastructure also go to DISH or if they become...

    This is maybe not the best place to ask about service in some random county in Iowa. (I guess, you could get lucky.) There are like 3100+ counties (parishes in LA) in the US and not even a fraction...

    If T-Mobile had a DSS testbed running somewhere in North Dakota, would anyone know? I mean, unless they announced it?

    I'm on the phone right now, trying to get them to send me an R15 SIM at no charge. The whole process has been like pulling teeth. At first I had to read the website to the CSR and then read him the...

    I had 2nd and 3rd thoughts about even telling anyone about this but the sharp-eyed among you may have noticed an upgrade to the phones in my profile. Go to the support forum and learn for yourself.

    Maybe. The hotspot may have band 71 which could give it a speed boost indoors. One thing you might still be able to do is get a Mint Mobile starter kit (SIM) and use it for a week to test T-Mobile....

    Well, then he has band-12, so his coverage will be pretty much equivalent to a phone with band-71.
  17. Can't help you there. The Support Forum login...

    Can't help you there. The Support Forum login used to be separate from the T-Mobile account but now they're the same. I almost gave up because of complications arising from my use of different e-mail...

    Re: the iPhone 8+. It largely depends on where you are. If you live where T-Mobile has band-12 coverage, it can be good. At least a good indication of what sort of coverage you can expect, if not the...
  19. T-Mobile's Support Forum: It pays to watch.

    Just a little note to let my colleagues here know that the T-Mobile Support Forum has been passing out some rather interesting freebies. You might want to drop by once a week to check.

    In those areas would there be any issue with the spectrum scan? When it comes to licensed spectrum, T-Mobile is suffering from an embarrassment of riches.

    All in all, it would have been much better if DSS had been baked into 5G than added on as an afterthought. It's sort of like ER-GSM. Yes it works but the costs are incredible. It would have been...

    First off, when discussing DSS, one should really qualify what DSS he is talking about. It's not just one technology. There are different DSSes for different modes and even within a mode, the...

    That makes two of us. For me, I just want PP left alone so I can continue to use it as a low-cost backup phone. Any change I can imagine Verizon making will either reduce PP's utility or increase...

    I have not been able to connect with my Moto G7 Power. However, the only band I'd classify as "Sprint's" is 26. Anything else could just be a T-Mobile site transmitting a Multi-Operator ID and MFBI....
