Sprint Open World

Does anyone know who Sprint's roaming partner/network is in Canada? I'm on a layover here and I want to make sure I select the right one. I'm on Rogers at the moment.

It was Rogers in Toronto when I was there about 2 weeks ago.

 

I didn't have to select anything. I received a text from Sprint and it was automatic.

I can confirm it was Rogers Wireless when I was in Toronto back in July.

The roaming partners used to be Bell and Telus, but with the discontinuation of CDMA2000 roaming, the primary roaming partner switched to Rogers. That came as a surprise.

I can't imagine Sprint was exceedingly happy with CDMA roaming going away.

It's Rogers in Vancouver as well. Incidentally I've only gotten HSPA+ here; no sign of LTE (at least on my Nexus 5X).

 

Project Fi, on the other hand, seems to be roaming on Bell LTE (Nexus 6).

 

Is it throttled on Bell LTE?

If I remember correctly, sprint doesn't have any international LTE agreements.

Project Fi is not Sprint. It's a Google MVNO and they work out their own agreements.

Yep, it seems to be throttled to about 256kbps (as is my Nexus 7 LTE tablet on T-Mobile postpaid, also using Bell LTE).

 

In Toronto tonight - same deal: Sprint is running on Rogers HSPA+, Project Fi and T-Mobile are on Bell LTE (throttled at 256k).

    • iOS users see frequent carrier updates, so I was curious if this is something that happens on Samsung devices, too.
    • *#2263 menu working at all surprised me given unlocked firmware.  Besides Tello, I also use Boost Mobile on T-Mobile and the Samsung band selection app.  On Tello it would find n71 SA including site details, but not connect.  On Boost using T-Mobile, the behavior is the same. except it only has the n71 band.  In both cases you also get neighbors. Can connect to n71 SA with T-Mobile locked phone with TNX.  Then put in Tello sim and rebooted, which works with psim but reported not esim on esim phones. Mobile IP address does not work. Outbound calls ring once and die with any sim in Columbus, OH.  Boost Mobile using T-Mobile network is stuck on connecting... like unlocked (can see site info and neighbors). Could always root it I guess and try NSG which uses modem commands iirc.  A53 5G unlocked  with before June firmware another option.
    • My s22 is at 2.370001.  When I try to manually update it,  It just sits there for a minute apparently doing nothing.  Then I get the following message:  We can not do it right now. Please try again after 24 hours. It is a little risky to even think about forcing an update that has not downloaded on its own.  You could be the first person to see a screw-up in the new software configuration.
    • I found an interesting line.  Under Software Information, there's a carrier configuration version and it errors out updating.  Mine is 2.380001.  I wonder how often that updates.
    • Yeah totes saw that article and I was like! Well damn hahaha there won't be expansion of band 41 then in areas of the Upper Manhattan/Bronx and Westchester then if that is the case otherwise we would have seen it.
