Maybe i'll find one time to do one for all of Sprints devices eventually...
(To moderators) Please move this thread if you think it fits better in another category. Thanks.
So I noticed Sprint recently deployed B25 at the tower near(ish) my house (located in Northern Virginia). I'm picking up B25 intermittently on the top level and outside. Even without B25, I am satisfied with the quality of service in my area.
The one thing I wish Sprint could do is stay more up to date with the new BlackBerry phones. I like my Q10 but am bummed they never released the Z10 or Z30. There has been a tweet or two from Mr. Claure hinting there may be a new Sprint-BlackBerry release coming. This could be referring to the Classic or upcoming Leap, but it's anyone's guess at this point. Sprint has been pretty cautious in recent years about releasing BlackBerry phones. I'm not sure if that is going to continue now and into the future.
T-Mobile is in talks with BlackBerry about selling their phones again. Even without this, there is the ability to bring an unlocked phone to TMO because they are a GSM carrier.
So, I bought a used Z10 off of eBay last night. I'm going to purchase a prepaid plan and try the service for a month. But, I'm expecting TMO's service to be satisfactory as well.. I have a tablet that can connect to TMO's network and the service is pretty good overall.
What should I do? In your opinion, is there advantage to one carrier or the other?
I'm going to also post this on CrackBerry. Perhaps this post would be somewhat more relevant there.
Just wanted to let y'all know that the BlackBerry Classic is launching tomorrow, with events in New York, Singapore, and Frankfurt. The NY event starts at 10:00am EST. It will be streamed live at the official link below.
Going through the full list of shortcuts on my S20 Ultra:
Battery Info - "Battery info isn't available on this device."
Data/EPST - "Data/EPST info may not be available on this device."
Debug/Engineering - "Debug/Engineering screens may not be available on this device."
Mobile Networks - "Mobile Network settings not available on this device."
Radio Info - Does work.
Samsung Band Test1 - Does work.
Samsung Band Test2 - "Band selector not available on this device."
Samsung Band Test3 - "Band selector not available on this device."
Samsung Band Test4 - "Band selector not available on this device."
Samsung Band Test5 - "Band selector not available on this device."
Samsung Band Test6 - "Band selector not available on this device."
Samsung Band Test7 - "Band selector not available on this device."
Samsung Hidden Menu - ""Hidden Menu: Permission Denied"
Voice Band Menu - Does work.
WiFi Info - "WiFi info not available on this device."
I know the ##33284# was unique to Sprint branded phones in my experience, the dialer code for the Service Mode screen on Samsung is *#0011#, not sure if you want to point the Samsung shortcut to that instead now. *#0011# works on most Samsung phones, the exception being some Verizon versions.
On another note, the accent color is working on both my phones on the newest update. I've also noticed the stale 5G info does seem to clear after awhile, but I'm not sure how long that takes. An airplane mode cycle also clears it.
With the new update Samsung Band Test1 brings up "NETWORK" menu(?). I can get into the Band Selection by clicking the menu button in the top left. I have never used Band Selection menu before but that is what it says in the top center.
I saw there were 7 different options I just figured I would let you know which seemed to work for me. No 5G in my area so I can't really test that part of the beta.
