Unlocked S20's got the October security patch. No SA 5G though.

There won't be any SA until you get the T-Mobile R15 simcard with TNX.

The phone comes with a screen protector pre-installed. It's not tempered glass but it's pretty good and I'd honestly refrain from removing it/switching it out unless it gets scratched up quite a bit.

I know this isn't the ultra, but 20X on the S20+ is pretty impressive (I know it's still fuzzy, but considering the distance, it's pretty clear). 30X is hard to control handheld. I can not imagine the

Also Tmo has the most uninformed network. You will see towers with B66/4+B12 and some with B66/4 +B2+B12+B71 or B66/4, B71, B12 and even some with just B12 or just B66/4. Sent from my SM-G988U1 usin

I'm on T-Mobile and have have the R15 SIM already. It has to be enabled in the firmware. So far T-Mobile has only pushed it to T-Mobile branded S20's. Samsung has not pushed the necessary firmware to unlocked S20s though.

My Sprint S20 Ultra has SA enabled, though SA is hardly what you would call widespread.

My desire isn't really to actually use standalone 5G. I live in an area where my signal is so strong that I get a strong n41 signal indoors. I really just want the update for feature parity. I really dislike how carrier branded and unlocked Samsung devices don't receive the same updates at the same time.

I get only n71 here, n41 if I go into the not so nice areas. SA is very rare here only get it once in a while. But Samsung updates should be universal but nope.

My S20+ (Sprint version) has been toggling back to Sprint B41 lately around my house, which is typically a good thing as the B41 gave speeds near or at 100 down compared to the 2 down with "5G" on T-mobile.....however, now the B41 is useless and it needs to snap back over to "5G" to do anything.

I wonder if these means tower conversion is happening?? I know that the Milwaukee market got the mid-band 5G switch thrown, perhaps Madison, WI area will soon too? They usually are the same market, but Milwaukee was in the last T-mobile presser but not Madison. I sure hope so, it would make a world of difference here in Madison. I do not, however, see any new equipment on the tower or work being done. Is it possible to be just software related without hardware changes?

Are you still getting carrier aggregation with your s20? Because with my updates the s20 got carrier aggregation between Band 41 disabled..

Got the release version of Android 11 a day or two ago. Two updates back to back. Just confirmed that B41 CA is there.

Sorry, can't remember are you Sprint, T-mobile, or unlocked? Were you on the beta?

My device is Sprint-locked, on standard Sprint (not TNX). I was on the beta, starting with the incredibly unreliable initial release :)

With TNX you can't update the profile on the S20.

Figured much. But thanks for the clarification 🙏🏽

What's the TNX thing? I got an email saying that we need to get new SIMs for our phones (Sprint phones with Sprint SIMs). Should we do this?? First I'm hearing of us needing new SIMs. 

 

EDIT: I figured this out on another thread and ordered the TNX SIMs.

So question???

My phone lately has developed the problem of people cant hear me when they call.. or when I call them.. I can hear them either time, but no voice from me.. Takes a restart of the device to fix, and I haven't tracked a time or thing that causes this.. 

So the question..

Is this network related or device..

What do you think??

I don't have the "hearing me" problem, but I bet it's network related..... I just rarely get calls and texts when people call me or text me. Telemarketers seem to always get through but never the important calls. The New T-mobile sucks just as hard as the Old Sprint.

Yeah you're probably a few days behind with the Sprint sim, oddly enough Verizon was the first to roll it out here in the US.

I'm on beta 6 and it says it's officially out but it's not showing up for me and I'm on TNX with S20 Ultra. Must be because I have a unlocked S20 Ultra.

Looks like AT&T has pushed out the Android 11 update too. My s20 Ultra is currently downloading a 2507.95MB update.

      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)

    • 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.
