Hello Everyone,

 

I just wanted to share a neat website that shows if you phone is compatible with different carriers. I have noticed with the new latest Sprint phones that are compatible to a lot of the American carriers. Check it out if you are interested: http://www.willmyphonework.net/

Pretty cool. But it would be nice if there was some sort of indicator for partial vs full band support, CA, etc.

This would be better if Sprint allowed other devices on their network (ie:Verizon phones with CDMA support.)

Tell verizon to add LTE B25/26/41 and BC 10 support to their phones and then we can start talking.

And that really is the rub here. Sprint devices can be used on so many networks, but no one tries to reciprocate at all. It's been proven these devices can quite easily be single SKU allowing full reciprocity. But unless the government demands it, expect the other providers to keep ordering their devices to be as protectionist as possible.

I just think its silly that each US carrier has to have their own variant of the same exact model.  I just think its overkill especially now that LTE phones can contain many LTE bands in the same phone.  I am pretty sure that Verizon/Sprint/Tmobile/AT&T want their own variants to promote all their bloatware which is absolutely unnecessary.  Would be nice to see all US carriers be able to support all the different LTE bands out there especially the superset ones.

Not that Sprint would allow you to bring it over, anyways. :wall:

Didn't Sprint begin in Feb 2015 to unlock devices once you have finished your 2 year contract or paid off your device?

Some devices, the Nexus 6 comes to mind, are unlocked from the day you purchase it.

    • Went to Rolling Loud NYC at Citi Field this weekend. Over 60,000 people in attendance. Verizon is a sponsor of the festival this year so naturally they had a ton of COWs set up at the festival. I counted at least 4. As a result, they were virtually the only carrier consistently able to provide a data connection. I didn't see any Verizon 5G, only LTE. T-Mobile on the other hand was a very interesting experience. I was seeing an eNB 331804 which I'm 99% sure is a COW. They also seems to be doing some sort of traffic management because I noticed that if I left my phone idle in my pocket, it would drop down to No Service/SOS or sometimes it would sit on EDGE. But the second that I needed to send a text, make a call, or even use Twitter my phone would switch over to LTE or 5G to complete the task. In an active data session, my phone would constantly flip between Band 2, Band 66, and Band 41. Sometimes, I'd catch myself on the COW and other times I'd get pushed over to eNB 875868, the relatively new Sprint conversion nearby. The network moved at a snails pace though. Where Verizon took about 15 seconds to load Twitter or send a pic, T-Mobile could take up to a minute to complete the same task. Here's some photos of the COWs I spotted. I think that the first two are Verizon and the one in the distance in the third pic is T-Mobile's single COW, not nearly enough for an event that size.

    • You need to have Wi-Fi Calling enabled and also have made at least one phone call over Wi-Fi Calling prior to using the inflight Wi-Fi.
