Phone Check for Carriers

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.

    • Luckily, that hasn't arisen in my area where I am, aside from having B14 (well, ALL of AT&T signal) not work at all in Coosa county, Alabama. I wish there was a service for first responders that would go to ANY available carrier, provider, etc..and in the absolute worst case scenario, would give us service. I've been on an ambulance, trying to find an address, and my driver actually had to pull over and we pulled out a map book and tried to find the road using the "old fashioned way".. and that takes valuable time away that sometimes may be vital to someone surviving. BUT, I will say that I've only seen that in Coosa county... both my Tmo and AT&T phones had zero service and I couldn't get GPS, and neither could my driver (VZW service). Maybe satellite will help with that in those times where that occurs.. but that's an extreme example.     Edit to add: Let me add some context to this.. Coosa county isn't regular coverage area for my job.. so it's not a regular thing that we are dispatched to Coosa county.. and actually, there's been a change and that county now has it's own ambulance service that operates.. so the only time we might receive a request is if it's a multiple casualty scenario, or it's a transfer going home from our contracted hospital.  The way that reads above, it may seem like we are just out without some sort of GPS gadget to direct us on where to go, but for the most part, we know our coverage area pretty well. Dispatch can also give us cross streets for reference inside our coverage area (and our home county). Coosa just isn't a regular area for my job to run in. 
    • "Priority" doesn't mean "exclusivity."  When emergency services don't need B14, AT&T can use it for everyone else.  The trade-off is that when it is needed for emergency services, they not only get all of B14, but they have also arranged for priority on the rest of the AT&T network as well.  Beats having spectrum sitting unused most of the time and then not having enough when disaster strikes, as it could be without a partnership with a wireless company like AT&T. - Trip
    • I've wondered if being on the first responder plan has the priority over other 'regular' lines in the same way firstnet does (or, supposed to do with B14...I've seen normal customers on AT&T hit B14 so it's not {specifically} for Firstnet only)...  
    • T-Mobile prices people pay are all over the map. The free lines are key, so take them if ever offered again.  Your priority level would be a key factor for your price.  Only T-Mobile would know the average prices people pay.  Samsung has been offering very good deals at time of new model introductions so I have gone that route for factory unlocked, which allows me to also have a Verizon priority MVNO for when T-Mobile signal fails or I manually override.
    • I also wanted to post a speed test result.. I only do these once in a while from my home area because we are gonna be the last to see changes, like load balancing.  Right now they are digging all over the place for fiber installs, so I'm not sure what the hold-up is on making the upload speed a little more in-line with download speeds, but here is the most recent from my area:   https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/10133670525
