Samsung phones are extremely widespread. For others I am assuming it requires root access. But MSL =000000 and that's the simple key if you're on Samsung. One of the many reasons I have always been with them.
Verizon is currently deploying CBRS equipment faster than T-Mobile is doing 2.5ghz. There's something like 80mhz unlicensed and they can bid on up to 40 MhZ for PALs...so, real spectrum advantages might be rather limited...
No, I'm not saying that. What I'm saying (and I'm no expert) is that Sprint/T-Mobile has provisioned these phones to run natively on the T-Mobile network (so they can use T-Mobile 5G), while all other Sprint phones are currently provisioned to run natively on the Sprint network. My Sprint-purchased A71 5G almost never connects to Sprint (even though it says it is a Sprint phone), it is virtually always on T-Mobile.
I ended up bailing with 3 lines to AT&T, I can attest that AT&T has been busy adding capacity to its network. When I left AT&T back in 2016 only LTE band was 700MHz and a couple sites had 1900MHz for capacity. Since I've came back to AT&T every site here has B2 1900MHz, B66 AWS, and some B30 WCS sprinkled in along with FirstNet B14. I get speeds well over 100Mbps pretty much everywhere I go, and I'm not use to that lol
