Without an R15 sim you won't get 5G SA.

 

So the One UI 3.0 Beta is out, I signed up for it but when I go to check for an update it says I am up to date. Hmm.

I am not sure if we have any SA 5G around here yet.  Just thinking if we travel out of town somewhere, it might come in handy to have the new sim in my phone.

I switched to Tmobile a couple of years ago.  Sprint wouldn't work inside my house when we retired here.

A new sim was in the box but she just put my old one in the new phone.

I would have used the SIM that came with the phone. Since you already had a T-Mobile line, I'm not sure it makes much difference. That SIM swaps going on are for Sprint customers moving over to T-Mobile.

I have another LG G7 that we are not using, so I thought I would let her do it her way.  If I decided to return the S20 FE, then I could just put my sim card in the 2nd G7 while the return process was going on.

I was on Sprint for years and years and years.  Loved it most of the time.  My retirement lot even had a Sprint tower nearby that had gave me good single.  That is until my house went up.  I couldn't get a good signal inside so I switched to Tmobile.

So as I had brought up before on the other page... 

Do you think part of my problem is a Sprint sim, that came with the s20. And that I should go get a Tmo sim...

All I know, is this data issue, and others having calling issues... is beginning to piss me off.. its wasting my time, and costing me money.. 

not to mention the others s20s, in my house being bugged by it, thus bugging me...

If you still technically have a Sprint line, the SIM that came with your phone is the correct one for it. The S20 series does not need a different SIM to operate natively on the T-Mobile network.

I got the Android 11/OneUI 3 beta update yesterday. My phone is reasonably reliable again, mobile hotspot config works properly again, WiFi works consistently, no more constant crashes...there are a few rough edges still I think, but my opinion has gone from "don't install this" to "probably fine to install this"

Does the s20 fe need an update to get Standalone 5g?  I see where the other s20 versions did get an update for that awhile back.

Since that phone just launched it might have SA support out of the box.

I'm sure it's supported so long as you're on TNX with T-Mobile otherwise on ROMAHOME you won't get SA support.

Any idea how I could tell?
If it works on your phone the easiest way to tell is to go into *#2263# and tap on NR5G band preference, then see if NR B71 SA is listed as an option. If you only have NSA then SA hasn't been enabled on your phone. 855d71be30b4ead9c328ea9231a8a086.jpg

I have never gone into the engineering screens.  Is that where you open the dialer and enter those codes?

Yes, if it works it will open up as soon as you type the last #. 

*#0011# is the other code i use all the time.

Interesting, it works on my T-Mobile Samsung devices (S20 and Tab S6) and on my AT&T S20 Ultra, though on the AT&T phone I have to reboot with the SIM out to get into that menu. With the SIM in it just says this:

I changed my sim to the R15 that came with my S20 FE.  The code still works ok.  Note, I am on Tmobile.  Looks like I might need the software update to enable SA.

Ok so something new happened today.. say least 2 calls didn't come through.. I was at home so on WiFi calling..  but there's a twist.

 

It went to some other number.. don't know who just wasn't me. Had a customer, ask someone to call me, they asked if I changed my number. So my customer called me... Same thing,  some other number.

 

Only way I found out, she emailed me about it..  I tried and it worked fine.. One called from a Comcast VoIP. The other was Verizon.

 

I realize this isn't "phone" related.. but I don't know where to put it lol... All these quirks are driving me crazy.. what do you think happened there?

I never had good experiences with WiFI Calling, best to leave it disabled.

      Samsung Network Vision equipment are highly distinct and fairly easy to spot compared to the equipment that other vendors are deploying. Sprint is Samsung's first extremely massive American contract (baring Clearwire) so there  should be no issues in confusing these equipment for another carrier which happens often with Ericsson NV equipment.

      Below are images of Samsung equipment which includes antennas, remote radio units, base stations, and their mounting configurations.

      Sprint 4G Rollout Updates
      Tuesday, January 31, 2012 - 7:46 PM MST
       
      Since last fall, there had been talk of a Samsung Galaxy Nexus launching on American carriers other than Big Red. Sprint has finally announced several weeks ago that it is the another vendor slated for release in the U.S. Suffice to say, many of us out there, especially those adverse to heading to Verizon and paying its premium prices, are excited about the impending release.
      The good news is that Google could be working on an updated version of the Galaxy Nexus. It has unofficially been dubbed the Galaxy Nexus Plus. There is much anticipation that it will be released before Sprint turns on LTE this summer. It’s not the first time an OEM has refreshed a device and re-released it to the market place, which works to our advantage. It’s rumored that the new Galaxy Nexus will have either a 1.5 or 1.8 GHz Texas Instrument OMAP4670 dual core processor. This would be a significant upgrade from the 1.2 GHz dual core processor found in the current Verizon version.
      We don’t know anything about official specs, but it’s also rumored to have an 8 MP camera. This is a noteworthy upgrade to the 5 MP shooter on the Verizon model (which has been lauded by many techies). We already know that the Sprint model will come installed with Google Wallet, per previous announcements. Some rumors also point to a beefier battery as well. The phone should have all the other features that’s on the current Galaxy Nexus, so now all we have to do is wait.

      Noticed on TM Reddit that the S8 Active is coming unlocked, so would be compatible with Sprint.
      (Also supports TM B71)
