  1. Today
  2. It's not a CDMA vs. GSM thing. Verizon has had transferrable SIMs for awhile. It's a Sprint provisioning thing. T-Mobile will probably just get rid of Sprint provisioning altogether by doling out TMo SIMs rather than fixing the Sprint side.
  3. Even though the merger is well on it's way, the actual transfer from CDMA to GSM will still be a few years ? The ability to take a sim card and use it on an unlocked phone will be a big benefit vs. dealing with whitelisting of IMEI
  4. All I know... Having this S-20 Ultra, and utilizing Tmo improved coverage in Utah (and its TONS better from like 3 yrs ago when I tried for a yr)... I cant wait to see what the combined assets will do.. Hell volte will be about as good as the standard cell coverage... I have been hitting all the bands (except the N-bands. I think) SCP bounces all over..2, 12, 66, 71 I have had to add new notes as they are Tmo towers instead of Sprint hahahha
  5. Ooo that sucks. Is it a regular T-Mobile plan, or their home internet plan? I didn't think they checked the IMEI for normal lines? Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  6. True vzw has been deploying B48 equipment for some time on their towers, so that will be a quick turn on Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
  7. https://www.fiercewireless.com/operators/verizon-to-stop-certain-ad-claims-5g-coverage In other news, the duopoly is sparing with each other over speeds/coverage and seems to be feeling the heat put on by New T-Mobile. [emoji16] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. https://www.fiercewireless.com/operators/verizon-s-cbrs-3-5-ghz-deployments-rise-rootmetrics New T-Mobile seems really aggressive with the rollout and I am sure the executives realize that any advantage they have on VZW will surely dissipate. VZW is almost ready to rollout their own mid band spectrum and we know AT&T is not sitting idle either. Factor in the Note 20 and iPhone 12 launches, New T-Mobile really needs to keep up the pace to keep churn down! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. Yesterday
  11. Talk about someone who is clearly misinformed. Once the big metros are all set, the nationwide rollout will kick it into overdrive and should be almost wrapped up by Christmas! [emoji2363][emoji1787] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Yup no problem. I find that VoLTE works fine on it, but it does still oddly have random very brief cutouts at times. Which is surprising to me with Ethernet backhaul (and gigabit symmetrical fiber). I'm guessing the cutouts may have been just the airlink having an issue (the eNBs are pretty basic). Personally I still have wifi calling preferred, and find that the call quality is better / more consistent. But it's nice to be able to take the call on LTE and have it handoff right away to wifi calling, since sometimes wifi calling will drop randomly for some reason. Pre-volte, when this happened I'd be stuck on 1x for the duration of the call. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  13. Yeah, first time I tried ... Long time ago ... I didn't have it for a few days, then opened a chat with customer service, and they told me it wasn't possible. I may give it another try. Thanks for the reply and the reset tip. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  14. Yes. It didn't work initially, but around February or so I factory reset it and it got VoLTE a few days after that. Supposedly T-mobile has been proactive at going back and enabling it on MBs that never got in the queue, but if you don't have it yet, just factory reset it. It can take up to 3 weeks to get it the first time (or so I was told by MB support). My Airave 4 took 2.5 weeks after a factory reset. I'm not sure if it's still the case, but having VoLTE enabled was a manual process, where it would get entered into a queue and someone had to manually toggle it on. That's why it took so long the first time, and why some MBs seemingly never got it. Factory resetting puts you back in this queue. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  15. Does volte work for you when connected to your Ethernet backhauled magic box? Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  16. Yep even if you have idiots on Reddit claiming they left TMO cause of their slow rollout of 2.5. as of it can go Nationwide in 3 months [emoji848] Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
  17. Of course they did. One of Sprint's primary justifications for the merger wound up being its lack of low-band spectrum. How self-fulfilling and ironic. So far T-Mobile has executed this merger brilliantly, and during a global pandemic too!
  18. Yeah that one about 600 MHz was completely Stupid, sprint needed that and they know dam well that they did. Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
  19. Water under the bridge and glad it's over! Nothing but frustration with Sprint's management team... watching all the bad decisions (many many!)
  20. So that's a wrap on that. This merger was the best thing to ever happen to Sprint to be honest at this point. We're finally getting the network that we deserve. Flashback (11/30/2016): https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/sprint-cfo-robbiati-600-mhz-spectrum-past Sigh....
  21. Sprint's problems predate Softbank, but yes Softbank could have invested some money in Sprint and made it a much better carrier. They overpaid on everything they bought after Sprint.
  22. 600 repack is reported as finished. https://twitter.com/AjitPaiFCC/status/1282720582447124482?s=19
  23. I just got that same email for my Magic box that has been on Ethernet backhaul for 9+ months (I checked and the serial number matched that unit). It was still on Ethernet when I got the email, since I speed tested faster than Sprint's nearby macros (they're fairly congested even on B41). So they're just blanket sending it out to everyone, even people who are already off of LTE backhaul.
