When and why did Sprint stop doing international unlock?

Thats a huge downgrade in their international services.

To improve money flow I’m guessing.

Why allow people to do an International Unlock to switch to a foreign carrier with an International SIM when you can instead keep them on your Global Roaming Plan that’s free for text/data ($.20/Min or more for Voice) , but has an upcharge for High Speed Data?

There are benefits to being on Global Roaming, as it’s clear and simple.

However, having the International Unlock option available again for devices on Lease would be useful.

So I wanted to post this and see what you guys think. I think this may be sprint .. what do you guys think ?

Since sprint is the carrier that still needs to fund the largest scale deployment

Highly likely that it's Sprint. John specifically mentioned zayo in his 5G chat with fiercewireless.

Look like Verizon gets to keep all the MMWave spectrum that T-Mobile was trying to make the FCC block

http:// https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.mobileworldlive.com/featured-content/top-three/fcc-refuses-to-block-verizon-mmwave-licence-transfer/amp/

So now what’s next T-Mobile? But I believe they have some but it’s in different places if I’m not mistaken. Sprint has their high band for 5G, ATT has theirs as well as Verizon.

600 mhz tops out at 20x20 in some areas. Less than that in other areas. Mine they got 15x15. That's not enough for 5G.

They will have to wait until November to bid on the new auction if the FCC goes with its plan without delays. This is where Sprint needs to go ballistic and deploy those massive radios.

Well count yourself lucky. In my area TMobile only has 10 megahertz 600 band.

Took a look at this article this morning .. I hope this doesn't effect sprint in any way as they seem to really be pushing for the network this year

Pretty much every site has been upgraded in NYC and then some. It's just that KC is their home market so they used that.

I’d love to see this comparison for other markets across the country as Sprint makes progress on its network upgrades this year.

    • I started working on the Raspberry Pi 3b Plus tonight with an Sierra Wireless em7565. This one has all those cool features that I was describing up top. Not bad for ~39 bucks. I was waiting for a few open source firmwares to get through the compilebot6k's toobs; this one is built now. Some use modem manager or openWRT for the router side. This LTE radio is band(s) 2/26/41 capable on the Sprint side. Band 25 did not make the cut, but was on previous Sierra builds. This is a tester radio so there is a slight chance it will appear down the road. It has just about every other LTE band.  

      This is an example of the debug screen. GMO is nearest so we only get 26 from a far site. No 41 in our zip yet. 
      The best part is I can plug an MC7455(that would be Modem#2) or another EM7565 in and it can hop over to that or I can direct load balancing. I just wanted to show the EM7565 authenticated below. Another shot of my terrible reception. Here it is out of the armor.

      So, we have a stable software image. I will get it built and add some GPS features, then test on band 41 in Myrtle where present. We have one site w 8t8r gear to test 3xCA on, so it might be a minute. I am in 2xCA MM areas through the week. I will see how it likes the Magic box too. 

      I should have a true GB ethernet router to massacre in the next couple of weeks with software images already set to go. I can embed the radio beyond a USB adapter. It still requires m.2>mPCIe but that is one less failure point and better throughput. This was a great breakthrough in affordable and small solutions for us.  I have to go to bed and then work now.

      Have a great week everyone.
    • Thank you so much for bringing light to this! I would have never known about it had you not posted it! You've saved me a lot of money and lowered my bill moving forward! It wasn't an easy process, but well worth it. Unlocking the phones was surprisingly easy. But the small hiccup came with my final bill. When I received it, I thought I was screwed when I saw that the ETF was included. I almost paid for it too, but the frugal in me decided to call Sprint (couldn't hurt, right?). After an hour on the phone with a US supervisor, my account was credited for the full amount of the ETFs. I walked away Scot-free!! Thanks a bunch OP! I'm trying Verizon's throttled unlimited data plan. Excellent reliability in the city, but there are certain key spots where I need my phone that aren't great. I don't know if it's the throttling or the network.
    • I see more mass upgrades by TMO on 600mhz -- it seems they did an amazing and fast roll out. If I recall folks here thougt TMO wouldn't be able to see much strides for a year plus.

      Reason I bring it up is TMO can't have much more free cash than Sprint. Yet can operate fast and lean.

      Positive note Sprint has rocked it's upgrades this past year...
