I have it and yeah, the floor counting is a bit finicky. Some days it counts well and other days it doesn't count at all.

I have the new gear sport and noticed if you don't climb at least 12 or more steps at a time it won't count for a floor.

At work (on a ship) it might only show 3-4 flights of stairs in a day. Although, i probably do at least a hundred. At a waterslide last year it showed that I climbed about 300 flights of stairs. So, I think the 12 steps is accurate. 

Also, it is still working after all that. I'd feel safe swimming with it.

Looks like Samsung lost me as a smartwatch customer, won't be upgrading my S3 Frontier anytime soon to the new Samsung watch. Everything I've read, they took out MST (magnetic secure transmission), which is the ability to use Samsung pay on most card readers!

Anyone having problem with text messages on this phone, specifically with viewing pictures? I am using Google Message and when I receive a text with a picture, my phone shows the text, but only shows "picture" instead of the actual picture. I remember when I first got this phone, this wasn't an issue, so not sure if a Samsung or google update caused this problem.

    • A full deployment has never been T-Mobile's strategy, and that's why they've never been the best in Seattle. Despite having the best site density (by a lot), their network experience falls far short of AT&T, Sprint and even Verizon now, who I would have claimed was in last place a year ago.  The trend for the last 4 years has been that AT&T and Verizon never climb a tower without deploying every LTE technology available at that time. Even today, the same cannot be said for T-Mobile.  I would estimate that more than 35% of T-Mobile sites in Seattle are still midband only. And some are still B2-only whereas others are B4-only. That makes coverage/capacity inconsistent between sites and handovers at the edge of cell sloppy, to say the least. To really compete with the big two, they're going to have to rethink the way they're deploying their RAN and stop deploying the minimum needed to get by. Hopefully we see those changes going forward, because they definitely have the economies of scale necessary to do so now. 
    • Factory reset it and make sure it has a good GPS signal. After a factory reset it should get it within a couple weeks assuming that it has a good GPS lock. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
    • Don't forget that the US Government paid AT&T $6.5 billion to deploy B14 FirstNet spectrum.  AT&T took advantage of those subsidized tower climbs to upgrade its own infrastructure to 5G-ready, and add all of its spectrum holdings.  Smart move. T-Mobile doesn't have that subsidy, but I agree that any tower they're going to touch from here on out should be fully upgraded, and I think we'll see that with the Sprint "keep" sites for sure, plus anywhere they add NR equipment.
    • I know on mine anytime I make a call it switches to 1x for the duration of the call and then goes back to LTE when the call is over.  I am able to VOLTE when out in town though.  Maybe soon.
