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.

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.

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.

      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)

    • Long live Wimax, Clearwire, Sprint Spark, Sprint LTE Advance, Sprint LTE Plus, Sprint!
    • Has your site been upgraded? Because B4/B66 performs worse on the new Nokia AAFIA Massive MIMO equipment in Texas. Before the upgrades, T-Mobile physically split sectors for B2/4/66 and coverage+performance was pretty impressive. B4/66 coverage was actually very close to that of B2 (even outperforming it in some instances). Now that my local tower has been upgraded, I still receive B12 and B2 from it. But my B4/66 now comes from a different neighboring tower as my home tower's B4/66 is drowned out. As you can imagine, I no longer get the same peak speeds as before since CA doesn't play nice with bands coming from different towers. Even the newly added B41 has a better reach than B4/66 (getting 80+ mbps downloads on B41+B41, T-Mobile just needs to optimize load balancing as B41 thresholds seem very conservative).

    • At one point i was on B66 all the time at our house, but now i almost never see Band 66.  I haven't paid attention to the PLMNs,  i will have to check.  We haven't had the issue in a few days, hopefully they have fixed whatever the issue was.  
    • It's amazing how quickly T-Mobile is integrating Sprint's network assets after the merger and putting itself on real competitive footing with Verizon/AT&T. With the launch of the 5G iPhone, uptake of new 5G devices on T-Mobile's network must be substantial. T-Mobile's midband capacity from Sprint is making a real difference in usability and speed.
