Why not add a T-Mobile section?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, new here! Hoping the merger goes through. For the mean time, why not add a T-Mobile section since everything relevant to T-Mobile will affect Sprint as well?

Except that selection doesn't seem to exist anymore.  Where should we look for information regarding the integration of our network into our new overlords network?

I have read that older phones such as my Note 9 will have to be discarded as it doesn't get the right frequencies...  Is this true?

Oh- and please-- this is not in disrespect-- is the site name going to change as "Sprint" ceases to exist?  I hope it doesn't.

The Note 9 supports T-mobile frequencies. Everything except B71. The T-mobile Note 9 didn't have it either though. So it'll work just fine, except it won't have access to that band. Almost all phones on Sprint (at least sold in the last 3+ years) support most T-mobile bands. Some may not support VoLTE though, at least with Sprint firmware. But they are capable of it and worst case can be moved to the T-Mobile firmware. They can all make T-mobile 3G calls though.

The whole site is now a T-Mobile section since the merger.  :)

    • 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.
