Kyocera Kona, 1x800?

Just would like some confirmation that this basic flip phone supports 1x800. I'm having trouble finding specs on it.

 

My girlfriend's mother and father would probably end up getting these as they're simple, and don't need much functionality other than basic SMS once in awhile. That, and it's only $4/mo with Easy Pay on Framily.

 

They live on the fringe of 1x1900 so 1x800 is critical, or else they'd need to get a better phone.

I did see you guys finally got NV/LTE in Binghamton now I believe all the towers down there are all done

Almost all of them! Just 2 remaining sites on Wilson Hospital and 20 Hawley street that remain Non-NV. Only a few other sites need LTE backhaul and they'll be done down here.

 

No official 1x800 as of yet, but I have spotted it a few times when it was most likely in testing.

 

The in-laws will be switching within a month or two, so hopefully 1x800 will be active by then.

Your right I just looked, I noticed that the upstate central market is the slowest with upgrades, Rochester is good, Buffalo is getting there.  The only eye sore (by looking at the not complete maps) we got is the "buf" switch for some odd reason site in the Henrietta area. I have a feeling they will probably deactivate that.

However I can no longer enjoy LTE because I had to switch back to my old trusty EVO 3D the other day.  I was having too many issues with the EVO LTE screen not responding half of the time, other times it would just start freaking out and doing its own thing, I was so close to smashing that phone to pieces... It got really frustrating when I was in the middle of something and needed to call someone and It wouldn't let me press anything, I have heard of this issue before and repairing it isnt worth it to me, its just a piece of junk phone.  Oh well Wimax still works at my house but I dont use it much.

It does. My dad just got one and it says so on the bands on the box.

You get wimax? I am so jealous. Waiting until lte is working at my house before I upgrade my wimax photon.

Yes the tower is .30 miles from my house :)

Lol. My closest wimax tower is like almost 30 miles away. The good news is that lte should be here very soon.

    • One more thing.. I just took a photo of a random glass on my counter in low light with both phones with no modifications to the stock camera settings.  The difference is night and day.  The photo taken with the Note looks crisp. Details are sharp. The dim scene is brightened beautifully.  Even the curtains in the background remain sharp and clear even when zoomed in.  The Pixel 7 Pro attempt at the same photo is laughable.  Blurrycam UFO type horrendous.  Did I get a faulty device?  This thing is horrific.  Something seems waaaay off.  
    • I received my P7 Pro 2 days ago and - coming from my Note 10 plus - I absolutely hate it!  I didn't expect to hate it so much but even the screen looks grossly inferior to my Note 10+ even though I know that makes no sense, at least on paper.  But I'm holding them side by side right now and the Pixel 7 Pro display looks grainy and borderline blurry compared to my several year old Note 10+.  What's going on here??  I toggled on full resolution thinking that would change things but....no.  the screen just looks awful.  Also...is there a way to mirror the Pixel 7 Pro to your smart tv without WiFi?  I've always done this with my Samsung phone. I thought allcast would be able to help out with that but it seems to not even function with this phone.  I'm about to smash this damn thing against the wall but I can't because I need it in one piece so I can return it ASAP to Best Buy.  I've honestly never been so wildly disappointed in a device.  Definitely going to switch it for the S22 Ultra. I don't understand the hype with this device.  Other than instant Android updates (which may not be the best idea after all) ...I can no longer see the allure.  
    • Any word on how SCP works with lineageos 19 on a oneplus nord n200 5g? Alternatively, how does the modem option work with rooted Android 11 on the same device? Maybe it has been depreciated in the past given the APIs. But since those are failing with NSA was planning to revisit the rooted modem options.
    • It doesn't include T-Mobile because AT&T objected to the T-Mobile applications.  The fact that anything at all was filed will add time. - Trip
