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.

I guess they took the approach as Apple 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.

Not sure if I should laugh or cry at fact that each year, Sprint requires a new SIM or is incapable of field upgrading the existing ones.

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."

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.

    • I received the below email today about Google shutting down its Fusion Tables tool. I know many of us have and still use fusion tables for our market maps here on S4GRU. Looks like we've got a year to migrate to a new platform.   Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk    
    • Have you ever been down there? Sprint's small cell deployment is paltry compared to AT&T and Verizon's C-RAN deployments.
    • What about the 2500MHz RRHs?
    • The new T-Mobile is going to boil down to a neighborhood by neighborhood decision for Sprint customers, some of which will depend on what work gets completed by Sprint assuming merger is successful.  I am assuming former Clear sites that do not get Triband upgrades are typically toast.  Sites with more recent investments stand a better chance of surviving, assuming they are not co-sites.  Of course all existing equipment could still be junked.  800 RRHs have the best odds, given they will likely be the last bastion of Sprint CDMA.  We are seeing some 1900 firmware changes that would allow for more spectrum to be used for LTE that may affect these RRH's retention.  I would also assume cabinets are toast or at least retrofitted. The main factor in keeping some of the equipment would be new equipment shortages and future 5G compatible replacements being needed in coming years. Network needs and leasing costs would be main individual site factors.  I would think markets with a low Sprint Market share would lose the most Sprint sites while those with a large Sprint Market share would have better odds for unique Sprint site retention.  Of course the FCC might mandate that VoLTE must cover all areas covered by Sprint CDMA, but this would mostly affect rural areas.  I am also assuming that the new T-Mobile will start urban in the larger markets given T-Mobile's past history.
