Those numbers look very strong for band 41! This and the iPhone looks pretty nice! Google pixel or Nexus I don't know.

I probably won't consider a Nexus unless it gains Sprint WiFi calling support

Note 7 versus v20 with added focus on signal: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1IxqRLUGCEypb0uvQebVGS1ktuQNpr_WWAhwDGBcWTPw/edit?usp=sharing   Basically the Note 7 should be the better B41 phone while the v20 should be better with B25.  Of course nothing beats real world testing.

I definitely am going to get it on AT&T when it becomes available. The V20 will have access to all of AT&T's spectrum frequency bands here in the Chicago area, which is something like 10x10 low band, 10x10 AWS-1, 10x10 AWS-3, 10x10 WCS, and 15x15 PCS.

Most likely concern is battery life.

Hopefully usage longetivity is the only concern of its "life", no fires to cause an early demise.

 

I went to a local AT&T store Friday. The device was there on display and was much better looking in person than seeing it in photos, except for the bezel, which definitely could have been lessened. However, the device felt less bulky than the V10 did. I preordered the V20 in store while I was there. I'm excited to get it.

I see LG is offering a $200 trade in credit on a phone worth $10+.  Wonder if you can get away with trading in an unactivated phone that Sprint thinks is worth $10+  I did this when I bought my Note 4, though Samsung directly was offering the rebate so they wouldn't know activation status.

 

Is the phone on display in any Sprint stores or Best Buy yet?

Any ideas on the cheapest phone that is worth $10 to Sprint. Hoping for something less than triband.

My old Nexus 5 is only worth $25 to them so they seem to have have high standards.....Best buy also has this deal and they seem to take any phone over $10 value, that may mean sprint or any other carrier.

Turned in my note 7 today to preorder the V20 and to my surprise the local Radio Shack already had 2 in stock and offered me 1 and I took it. It's not a Note 7 but is built very solid and has a beautiful display. Micro sd card slot and removable battery is a nice option and i just couldn't find anything else I was going to be happy with. The tiny always on display is a nice touch also

    • Ah, I see.  Thanks for those details! It is great to see some posts on this subject.
    • I was reading the FCC filing for the Pixel 6 yesterday and saw that it included n258 - I was wondering what that was. That will be my next phone so nice to know it will support this new spectrum. 
    • The decommissioning of Sprint sites has started, the optimistic worrying starts about which sites they will keep and convert. Only 2 out of the 3 B41 sectors are on Cellmapper, and 0 B25/26 sectors. I think another site near me also got turned off/decom'd, but I haven't checked it yet. I guess its time to start paying more attention to Sprint sites... Link to street view of the site via Google Maps ,  Link to the site in Cellmapper .

    • Haven't gone anywhere yet, so I can't speak to benefits.  My issue was that I was out on Monday morning and it appears that T-Mobile has turned off several Sprint towers near me.  I was sitting in a parking lot near Landmark Mall on -118 dBm Band 25 because two of the sites I used to connect to there were apparently not running, so data would barely move.  This is in addition to my home site which has been off for several weeks, but that wasn't an issue because I don't use wireless data at home.  But if they're starting to turn off Sprint sites and leave holes, then there's really no alternative. So far, I've only seen T-Mobile, but that makes sense since I've only been home and my home site is gone on Sprint, so the site I had been connecting to was a lot weaker.  I'll have to see when I'm out and about, possibly this weekend. When ROAMAHOME came out, I had that removed and blocked from my account since T-Mobile's network is so lousy, so my lines were not automatically pushed to MULTOCN.  I had to have the block removed and then MULTOCN manually added.  That's probably not typical. - Trip
    • Are you seeing a benefit from MOCN?  Is it true that MOCN is highly biased to using T-Mobile towers?  Should everyone with a non-5G phone ask for MOCN? I had the impression it was supposed to be automatic now, perhaps even without being entered explicitly.  Is this not the case?  I realize that it may take some time to draw conclusions so if you do not know yet that is fine. Thanks!
