LTE G band versus A-F bands

No SMR band support until next year. I believe it does physically support PCS A-G, since the LTE path is the same as the EVDO path. Meaning the phone has one link path for the 1X connection, then another for LTE/EVDO. Now what is it certified for? That's a different story.

Yes, this is firmly established. See any of our FCC OET authorization analysis articles. For example, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is the most recent:

All Sprint LTE handsets support band 25, which is a PCS A-G block superset.

    • Did some more exploring tonight. Saw n77 on both my USM and Visible SIMs, but never for long enough to take a screenshot, let alone do a speedtest. VZW's coverage maps are *massively* overstated for n77, at least here. Had to go pretty far north to even get those glimpses. Finding T-Mobile n41 was miles easier.
    • Just figured out this is a waste of time. US Mobile and Verizon lock the eSim to the emei while T-Mobile only uses it to see that you have a capable phone, like Red Pocket does with physical sims (although RP does keep track of what phone you are using it on with the emei.)  So @Trip was right in this case on liking physical sims.
    • Verizon has a reputation for being frugal with MVNOs. After looking around, I also decided US Mobile was my best option. People have gotten C band on it.  Hoping for esim for my S21 Ultra.  No luck so far.  Red Pocket does not claim Verizon 5g, although they say Soon!(TM).  I do see some 5g with it. Typically MVNOs are deprioritized, thus I am reluctant to claim truly getting top speeds with one.
