  1. Today
  2. The call goes over the LTE RAN and it is routed to the landline network.
  3. Did you mean B12? B13 is vzw Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
  4. If you have a new phone that supports Sprint VoLTE and you call a landline phone, does the call go over the regular old CDMA or does it initiate over LTE and then go into the landline network?
  5. Out of curiosity, where did you go exactly? Do you have a band 71 capable device? Almost all of T-Mobile's new coverage in north NorCal is band 71, Sprint has totally ignored the area for ages. US Cellular is usually pretty good up there, if your phone has band 13.
  6. Yesterday
  7. I got this email from Sprint: You’re just a few steps away from a better network experience with Sprint and T-Mobile. Improve your coverage now by reconnecting your Sprint Magic Box to your home internet. My MB Gold is currently on Wi-Fi working just fine, so wondering if this a general spam sent to all owners, or does this process to re-select Wi-Fi force it update its config in some way.
  8. I have the S20 ultra, been on it for a while now. It's on 5G every where I go, and yes I'm getting good battery life on it. Though I should have waited a week and got the V60, oh well.
  9. This week I switched from a Sprint 4G phone to a T-Mobile 5G. Connectivity is significantly better, specifically when I am deep inside my apartment building or in an elevator down to the underground garage.
  10. actually just got a call from sprint where I had contacted them and was advised this is due to tmobile working on the towers in my area and should be resolved tomorrow.
  11. Last week
  12. I got a new magic box gold with voice amp from the magic box gen 2. I could not get it to pick up a signal. The gen 2 showed 3 bars. I called sprint and they said the technology the gold uses is not in my area. The reactivated the gen 2. Now I can not get it to pick up anywhere. Makes it to 39% and reboots. I've even tried it on the back porch for testing where my phone gets 2 bars of LTE. Weird.
  13. Got my fastest speeds on T-Mobile 5G yet, today. This is on mmWave in Brooklyn. I have a feeling that the reason I never connect to n41 is because I'm either close enough that I can connect to n261 or so far that I can only connect n71. Edit: The site has Band 2/12/46(LAA)/66, and n41 installed but it doesn't have Band 71/n71. T-Mobile really confuses me sometimes.
  14. Ajit Pai is making lots of enemies on the road to 5G In moving to free up Wi-Fi and bolster superfast service, Pai has alienated some industries, congressional committees and Trump Cabinet leaders. https://www.politico.com/news/2020/07/08/ajit-pai-enemies-5g-351803
  15. Hey Jonny... I used to connect to B41 at my home all the time up until a year ago or so. I think some of it was moved/converted to N41 which was irritating. They have 160mHz or more in this area. They only had 20-40mhz deployed around me and then chose to convert some of that over. You are one of the lucky ones I guess. If Sprint network works great, then you have 2 networks that perform decently. Either one they move you to / shut off, you'll be ok until full integration.
  16. Here in Midtown Atlanta I noticed my phone was stuck (happily) on TMobile bands for about 5 to 7 days but it's been back on band 41 exclusively (Sprint coverage was THAT GOOD here) ever since. No complaints here!
  17. Right. You can't blink coverage into existence. They want to have their invisible (quinoa) cake and, apparently, eat it, too. No, Karen. Doesn't work like that!
  18. Oh that's what you're talking about [emoji106] Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
  19. I probably should not repeat myself but I thought that moving/merging band 25/2 should have been job 1. As in move enough Sprint spectrum over to T-mobile RRHs to fill up 20MHz, then when they visit the site to add band 41 they can add another RRH if there is some band 25 spectrum left.
  20. Well who didn't see this coming https://fox4kc.com/news/sprint-center-becomes-t-mobile-center/?fbclid=IwAR3PKPCU7AiV22lt6T3NiXbCWVV89v5hdgZpXZoEHdFBxWqX7bbUd-KeWkA
  21. Impressive https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/i/4006430355 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Agreed. It won't be easy. But something has to budge... if the state commission insisted on 93% or more coverage with a certain threshold of minimum speed... hopefully the FCC will continue to address the NIMBY's. I think some here, sadly, think this can all be done in a few weeks and there will be vast amounts of coverage everywhere. Most former Sprint accounts haven't even been moved over to the T-Mobile network yet, which still has to happen, only roaming has been unlocked. Nothing has changed in my neighborhood. In fact with all the talk and news articles of T-Mobile turning off Sprint's B41.... it's still on here and I can connect to it sometimes. Lots of work that hasn't even begun yet.
  23. Is that a 2nd carrier? Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
  24. 5mhz+ B2 is live all over Queens. Also hit a couple N41 sites.
  25. The problem with covering rural Northern California is that they don't want new towers to be built because it will Martha natural beauty. I understand it but then if you want coverage you have to compromise.
  26. I don't think you're going to see California covered for a little while (more than a year...possibly 2).... None of the carriers are particularly strong in rural areas of California (mostly central and north areas of state)... Nobody shines everywhere. This is why the CPUC wanted that agreement before ok'ing the merger. They want at least some guarantee that most areas of the state will be addressed. 3 months into this merger... Was the thinking California was going to be built out and addressed with new coverage? As both Sprint and T-Mobile were pretty bad in those areas (ie the roaming agreements) new towers will probably have to be completely built, there is nothing T-Mobile can piggy-back on... unless they can share a tower or 2 with AT&T or Verizon. This might be a while.. someone correct me, but an entire new Macro site can take 2 years or more from start to finish. I would rather take what you found and hold on to it and retest in about 1 year from now. Kinda like a progress tracker. That would be useful information to many of us as I travel to California every couple of years. So, "How long do we expect that to continue?" 2 years or more.
