I wonder if these will be activated as T-Mobile phones and have absolutely no access to the Sprint network?
I would imagine for existing Sprint customers, they will access both networks like they've done for other devices.

I thought about this, and it would make sense to have these default to T-Mobile as home first then roam on Sprint when necessary. This coincides nicely with T-Mobile's announcement of adding another million Sprint users to T-Mobile's network as default.

Well I picked up the S20 ultra 5G from sprint store, my V50 wouldn't sign on to 5G as of last week, but was on tmobile bands. The S20 ultra primarily using tmobile frequencies, 2,4,12,66,71 so far.

If they do the Sprint versions of the Oneplus 8 and LV60 like they did with the Samsung S20, then yes it would be great for Sprint users. Currently the T-Mobile versions still haven't gotten the switch turned on to use Sprints 5G. I would just close my T-Mobile account and get the Sprint version of the V60, but $899 is stopping me. 

Edit: The one Plus 8 5G is nice at $699.99 but I already had the OnePlus 7T Pro Mclaren and it didn't impress me as much as the V60.

Thank you!  I could not find it before because the filter selection for 5G phones is not working correctly.

Unless I am failing again, I unfortunately cannot find these phones sold anywhere outside the Sprint website. :(

I have usually bought my Sprint phones through Best Buy.

Also, T-Mobile is giving a 50% off promotion for OnePlus 8 but not Sprint? :(

I'm kinda wondering the same thing. And marketing this on Sprint's website as a 5G phone makes no sense as Sprint's 5G network no longer exists. Am I missing something?

Those devices will default to TMobile (which of course means N71/N41 for 5G)at home first then roam on Sprint where Tmobile isn't available.

That makes sense.

I am really having a headache reading all the posts on the slickdeals forum dealing with the new Unlimited Line On Us promotional offer being offered to existing customersAFbanghead.gif

Does anyone know if the Samsung A71 5G will work on T-Mobile 5G? Says 5G SA/NSA.

I don't know if you are still waiting, but the OnePlus is showing 50% off on Sprint's site now. I ordered one this morning for in store pickup. Edit: well lease payment is 50% off, full price is still $699.

The promotion looks like it is only for a new line of service, not to upgrade an existing line. :(

Yes, but it appears to be the same as T-Mobile's offer. At least that's what I see on their site.

    • T-Mobile is pretty dense in the Louisville metro area, close to matching AT&T as far as macro sites go in most parts of town, both blow Verizon and Sprint out of the water here. This is also a pretty mature B71 & N71 area. When I previously had T-Mobile service back around 2014 they were horrendous here, but they did a ton a work between then and when I switched back in April of this year. What I hope they focus on here is rural coverage, as they are pretty even with what Sprint had and both lag far behind AT&T and Verizon in rural coverage here.

    • I have the A71 now.  How do I set screen time out to never? 10 minutes is currently the longest setting displayed. My past LG phones had never as an option.
    • The Sprint Customers surely have a lot of value.  Nobody would allow them to fade away.  Something will be done. The best option is for Shentel to continue somehow with this area.  They built a killer network.  Much much better than any other network in this area.  Things will go downhill real fast if Shentel is out of the picture.   Actually, the Shentel network is so good that the Shentel sites need to be the backbone of the new network.  Add t-mobile spectrum to the Shentel sites.   Shentel is near perfect here and T-Mobile is very very poor.  Shentel can fix that real quick.
    • I've not read the SEC filing lately, so I won't promise I'm 100% correct in case my memory is faulty.  But because these terms are part of the existing affiliate agreement, I would assume that agreement continues to hold until it ends in 2029 (unless renegotiated sooner), including use of the branding and spectrum.  I know nothing about the billing system. - Trip
