    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    Sprint Corp. and T-Mobile US Inc. have rekindled merger talks, people familiar with the matter said, as the wireless rivals explore a combination for the third time in four years. The latest discussions come just five months after a previous courtship collapsed largely over who would control the combined firm. The talks also come in the midst of an antitrust fight between the U.S. government and AT&T Inc. It is unclear what terms the two sides are considering, and it is possible, as before, that they could fail to reach an agreement. The latest discussions are at a preliminary stage, the people said. The talks are complicated by the ownership of the two firms. Japanese telecom giant SoftBank Group Corp. owns nearly 85% of Sprint. Germany’s Deutsche Telekom AG controls T-Mobile, which is the larger company both in terms of subscribers and market value. https://www.wsj.com/articles/sprint-t-mobile-restart-deal-talks-once-again-1523378376?mod=searchresults&page=1&pos=1
  2. Just a minor correction, international data is full 3G or LTE speed depending upon what's available in country, NOT 256 Kbps. That changed roughly 18 months ago. https://techcrunch.com/2016/07/12/googles-project-fi-high-speed-international-pokemon/

    How this effects the outcome of the T-Mobile / Sprint merger is anyone's guess, but the FCC recently determined that the U.S. Wireless Industry is finally competitive. Can't post the whole article since it requires a subscription but it does say that the full (121 page) report will be voted on by FCC commissioners on Sep 26 before it's released. https://www.wsj.com/articles/u-s-wireless-industry-is-finally-competitive-fcc-says-1505145979

    Agree 1000% re prices going up. Odd thing is that Verizon and AT&T stock prices spiked up on this news. I'd bet $10 that the reason for this is that Wall Street also sees the end of, or at least a reduction in price competition if the merger is allowed.

    Verizon shrinking coverage in Maine.

    From the Verizon letter: "To make your transition easier, any outstanding Device Payment Plan balance for devices purchased prior to September 12, 2017 will be waived no later than October 31, 2017".

    Could be. But Dan's post quotes this as a source: https://www.facebook.com/machiasnews/

    Verizon shrinking coverage in Maine.

    Pretty sure Verizon isn't "shrinking coverage". Since July or so, letters have been going out to customers who are using significant amounts of data while roaming off the Verizon network. http://www.howardforums.com/showthread.php/1899159-Verizon-sending-letters-to-LTE-in-Rural-America-users-concerning-termination-(letter
  9. Done. And if appropriate and/or possible, for your consideration, a feature request: Verizon is starting to deploy LTE on band 5. Was wondering if it's possible to add an audio alert similar to the Sprint 1X 800 alert but triggered when Verizon band 5 LTE is detected?
  10. Yes it is rooted. Thanks for the info. EARFCN was sort of my gut feeling as well, I assume that's sort of "unprocessed data" taken from the modem commands available at /dev/smd11.
  11. So hopefully it's ok to ask a SCP question as it relates to T-Mobile on this forum. Question is which should I believe, SCP telling me "LTE 700" or the EARFCN? Clearly they disagree. I suspect this really wasn't Tmo band 12 in Phoenix as TV channel 51 has not moved yet. This is a Nexus 6P.

    Huawei Nexus 6P (was [Rumor] Huawei Nexus phone?)

    I'd say the jury is still out on returning to the old radio, seems inconclusive based on the various reports so far. I suppose it's possible Google introduced a bug in the 6.0.1 system/telephony code independent from the radio.

    Others here http://forum.xda-developers.com/nexus-6p/help/lte-issues-6-0-1-radio-canadian-carriers-t3267270 are having the same issue. A couple people have reported that flashing the old radio (.2.6.1.c4-00005-M8994FAAAANAZM-1) does NOT fix the problem, some have reported that it does.
