I am sure it is easy to just flash a stock version to the device and Make it a non ad version, but with a $50 discount.

Sprint should allow any fully network capabke device BYOD nowadays, IMHO. Otherwise you're turning down revenue and angering potential customers and existing customers. Not the time to do that.

Yeah. I can totally understand restricting BYOD to triband devices, but beyond that there should be no restrictions. None of the prepaid only BS. That just doesn't make sense as Sprint themselves are trying to move away from subsidies.

It'll work on BYOD.





Eligible devices - Coming Soon:


Samsung Galaxy S7 Special Edition

Samsung Galaxy S7 edge Special Edition

Moto G4

Moto G4 Plus



What I'm interested to know is if CA will work properly. Or if it'll be nerfed like the Moto X PE. Also 2x or 3x CA?

I'm interested in the phone from a software testing perspective for Android apps. I like that it's unlocked, I like that I can grab a 16GB variant for $125... but I'm not a fan of the Amazon crapware. How easy is this thing to root?

I bought this phone with Amazon adds.. Had them hidden within 30 minutes. Just takes disabling the Amazon apps and hiding the rest from the terminal/shell. The Amazon software being hidden persists through reboots and is just like the retail. Also have seen where the bootloader is unlockable.

I got the Moto G with Amazon ads on Tuesday and, honestly, the lockscreen ads don't bother me. I think I've seen a full-screen ad exactly once -- the first time I turned it on. If you have any notifications, the ads only show up as a notification. Since I always have at least a coupe of notifications (SignalCheck, weather) I always get the notification-style ads and, honestly, don't even notice what product is being advertised much of the time. Well worth the price of the phone, especially as a backup phone or something. I plan on using it until the next Nexus comes out, then keep it as a backup.

    • The S21U was very spotty with connecting to 6E. It would only see it on a router reboot. I thought it was more the router than the S21U, however my laptop would solidly connect to the 6E network, so it must have been the S21U. Since I'm on WiFi7 with the S24U, I haven't kept track of it. I will flip over and check it out later. 
    • Wi-fi 6e missing (6 GHz on one of two ultras). Perhaps coming from an app?  Wifi analyzer can see the 6ghz, just can't see them to connect.  May try wifi reset, although communications reset could have been the source of this problem.  Others have reported it, so not an isolated issue. Edit: Fixed: Rebooted into safe mode. Wifi 6e worked. Normal boot back. No wifi 6e in available nerworks.  Unistalled Asus Router app. Checked for Wifi 6e being visible in wifi available networks. Nothing. Deleted Netgear Genie app. Then saw networks. of mine I had not connected to in wifi available networks. Forgot the desired 2.4&5&6 SSID that did not show 6E. Connected to it again. 6e now works.
    • I noticed today while I was out and about in Louisville that b30 has been widened back to 10x10. They reduced it to 5x5 back in Sept 2018 presumably due to satellite radio interference. Not sure how long ago the change happened but it couldn't have been too terribly long ago. I noticed the different earfcn in the neighbor list, I don't usually see b30 as pcc much but I wonder if that will change now. I locked my phone to b30 only on my drive home from work and noticed the new(old?) earfcn on every site, so it wasn't just a 1 or 2 site fluke. It also looks like they've been doing some fiber or other cabling work around the b2/b46 small cell nodes, I wonder if they are about to start adding c-band radios to those. 
    • Should trade it for some low-band there or elsewhere. AT&T dominates lowband.    
    • I checked existing spectrum holdings and selling 5x5 PCS to each of VZW and AT&T in Kauai would get them to 20x20 apiece there, which should make them happy. In Maui it makes more sense to sell 5x5 each of PCS and AWS to get VZW 20x20 AWS and AT&T 15x15 PCS. I figure it would be a sale rather than a swap, as neither of the other two have spectrum T-Mobile would want that's high-frequency enough to avoid the spectrum screen. Honestly, T-Mobile is strong enough in Hawaii from a capacity perspective that cutting down PCS/AWS holdings won't hurt, particularly in exchange for finally unlocking 2.5 (though in Maui I saw 140 MHz n41 regularly in September if I remember correctly).
