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.

    • A full deployment has never been T-Mobile's strategy, and that's why they've never been the best in Seattle. Despite having the best site density (by a lot), their network experience falls far short of AT&T, Sprint and even Verizon now, who I would have claimed was in last place a year ago.  The trend for the last 4 years has been that AT&T and Verizon never climb a tower without deploying every LTE technology available at that time. Even today, the same cannot be said for T-Mobile.  I would estimate that more than 35% of T-Mobile sites in Seattle are still midband only. And some are still B2-only whereas others are B4-only. That makes coverage/capacity inconsistent between sites and handovers at the edge of cell sloppy, to say the least. To really compete with the big two, they're going to have to rethink the way they're deploying their RAN and stop deploying the minimum needed to get by. Hopefully we see those changes going forward, because they definitely have the economies of scale necessary to do so now. 
    • Factory reset it and make sure it has a good GPS signal. After a factory reset it should get it within a couple weeks assuming that it has a good GPS lock. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
    • Don't forget that the US Government paid AT&T $6.5 billion to deploy B14 FirstNet spectrum.  AT&T took advantage of those subsidized tower climbs to upgrade its own infrastructure to 5G-ready, and add all of its spectrum holdings.  Smart move. T-Mobile doesn't have that subsidy, but I agree that any tower they're going to touch from here on out should be fully upgraded, and I think we'll see that with the Sprint "keep" sites for sure, plus anywhere they add NR equipment.
    • I know on mine anytime I make a call it switches to 1x for the duration of the call and then goes back to LTE when the call is over.  I am able to VOLTE when out in town though.  Maybe soon.
