I think that it should be a bonus to those who shell out the full price for post paid contracts. Prepaid is fine for some, but it's the same reason I don't use a regional carrier. I think that a prepaid company could negotiate with vz att sprint and t mobile and offer coverage using all the carriers, but phones and plans would be expensive and it isn't really feasible.

Also, I feel that all prepaid data should be capped and the unlimited should be for postpaid only. Don't make sense to get a contract when you can get a decent Android prepaid with unlimited data.

For a pre paid provider to offer roaming it would raise the price of service for that provider and wouldn't be worth having when you can have a decent phone subsidized for 2 years and pay a little bit more per month. Prepaid mobile is for the budget conscience person. Some prepaid carriers have been able to negotiate cheap roaming agreements, but not many have.

I think Sprint should give them the option for voice and data but throw in texting. Texts are just so cheap that it wouldn't hurt their bottom line, much.


For the other services, charge a flat rate for it per service (data, minutes) or charge per use (if enabled).

    • Another SCP beta is rolling out now -- should hopefully resolve the issue with the new NR NSA band display missing on some devices. To clarify, this new field will only appear if the NR frequency is identified (i.e. the app is showing "5G-NR 2500"). If the frequency is not displayed, that means it is not available.. this information is not widely reported on NSA connections yet, although it is becoming more common. @chamb your S22 was not reporting the information at the time of your report, that is why you are not seeing it.
    • Sprint eNB 5777 -> T-Mobile eNB 219211 Located at 40.598077070553046, -74.06554695233527 I actually passed by this site last summer when I was searching for Staten Island keep sites and at the time it wasn't broadcasting the keep PLMN. 
    • March 1st Play Store update appears to be out for our device (not sure when it came out).
    • Mike, i sent you a screen shot of my S22 not displaying the band or site note or the neighbor list as I see on your example.
    • Hmmm interesting.. it's working on my Pixel 7 and A32, you should see something similar to below. I will add some extra logging and get another update out tonight.
