I just successfully switched my Pixel 3 XL to use the eSIM on Sprint. Works out of the box now. Since I already had this phone on the line, I had to swap to another phone and then swap back with the e

No UL CA??  I do not really need the perfect phone with all the bells and whistles, but my next phone will have UL CA.

How could this phone not have it??

Where in the report is the UL CA usually listed?

If UL CA is supported, as it's transmission from a device, it must be declared and listed. Under LTE Carrier Aggregations supported it'll declare downlink and uplink if so.

Does the Pixel 3 at least support HPUE?

Yes it does.

I had to get a new SIM when going from Pixel 1 to Pixel 2.  Hopefully, this won't be necessary when going from Pixel 2 to Pixel 3 which should be arriving on Monday for me.

 

And someday, we'll get the eSIM working, but that might require CDMA to be decommissioned.

Geez... Am I reading this chart right?  Pixel 1, 2 and 3 all require different SIM????

Si. 

CSIM. ISIM. ISIM whatever V now. It's the one used for this generations devices which has CDMA+LTE authentication on the Sim. Needed for future hot swapping.

The Nexus 6 was the last Pixel\Nexus that had wireless charging, so it was the last one worth considering. Now it's back.

Is the Pixel 3 an RF powerhouse like the Nexus 6 was?

I got my SIM in the mail yesterday.  It's Part Number: SIMOLW416TQ.

My Pixel 3 XL is still a day away, so it'll arrive on Monday, unless Fedex delivers on Saturday or Sunday.

Someone on reddit posted that Wi-Fi Calling works on Sprint after enabling the setting. Can someone confirm this? 

https://old.reddit.com/r/Sprint/comments/9pclec/pixel_3_xl_performance_on_sprint/e81drdx/

Yes, it works. You can choose between "Mobile preferred" (default) and "Wi-Fi preferred."

Is this Sim card available at best buy 

Some folks on r/sprint have reported successfully getting the right SIM card at Best Buy (it is the same one used for the iPhone XS).

I don't think the Boost Mobile BYOD pack has been updated yet to include the 516TQ SIM card.

Ok thanks for letting me know. I got the Boost Mobile for the pixel 2 last year and used it. I think between trying to get a sprint sim card and the pixel 3 being new with few cases available for purchase I'll probably wait to order for a few months until hopefully things get sorted. I don't mind paying for a card at best buy if it means in and out vs. trying to work with Sprint and the long back and forth.

    • The real question will be the effect on the upcoming 2.5 EBS auction.  T-Mobile might be able to get very good prices with almost no implementation costs for much better service in small cities and rural areas.
    • What was the previous 600Mhz antenna?
    • Auction 107: Hit $80.9B.   Now going to enter the assignment phase where bidders can bid on specific spectrum blocks. Wonder how fast this will get online this year.  TMobile's head start with 2.5GHz is gonna get challenged.  I could see them taking the lead in wireless tests in 2021 but then the gap close in 2022.   Auction 108: Three blocks.  49.5, 50.5 and 16.5MHz. I wonder how heavy TMobile will buy here. It'll sorta clean up their holdings and I could see down the road if they don't bid they have to invest more time keeping interference out of the current existing white-space. Likely at least secure entire counties they already own a partial license in. Everything about 2.5 is such a mess.  
    • So very interesting find , at my home The 5G upper layer indicator was turned off on certain LTE bands, but still has NR connected. It was on a Band 30 5 mhz one tower, a Band 30 10mhz chunk on another, and my home tower the Band 2 5Mhz chunk now has no indicator on. I am wondering if they are maybe configuring the the tower for DSS NR band 2
    • Seems to be the norm in many markets. They're replacing nearly all existing antennas on sites here in New York too.
