This thread is starting to look like a me only blog. lol
 

TMo is having a BOGO on this device.  So I couldn't resist.  Ordered today one for me and my wife.  I'm excited to finally upgrade to my first 5G phone!  Thanks for your info, or I wouldn't have probably done the Dual Screen.

I only update phone every few years. How has the telephoto aspect improved since the v20 days? For example, a cell site? Thanks

I haven't taken any myself but the Tech Preacher did. At time index 4:11 to 4:20 in his camera test video he shows a tower at wide and 10x zoom.

Somegadgetguy does a very good review on it.

Haven't seen anything mentioned yesterday. But I'm curious about one thing though. If every device goes through the FCC, wouldn't there be a FCC document for the Sprint version. I checked and didn't see one. Unless you don't need to go through the FCC if it is just a T-Mobile V60 version with just a Sprint boot up screen logo.

I guess we'll find out June 12th.

I'm guessing that's the case. I spoke with 2 different reps on 2 different dates (both were clearly American) and both told me the launch date was June 12th. The second time I called I asked the guy "are you sure about the June 12th launch date and are you sure that it's the V60". He said yes I'm absolutely sure. He said they wouldn't know anything about pricing until June 12th but he was sure about the launch.

Since the T-Mobile version already supports B25/B26/B41 as well as the usual T-Mobile bands including 5G, I imagine they didn't need to resubmit to the FCC. It wouldn't surprise me if they don't even switch out the boot screen.

The key item would be dialer codes or a hidden menu to allow band selection.

It's just the T-Mobile phone with a Sprint SIM in it. In fact, on first boot, it freaked out that SIM had been changed and it had to reboot...

Do you not want to order it through them?

I usually bought my past Sprint phones through BestBuy since they had better sales deals.

Same here but they aren't selling the LG V60. Sucks. What's even worse is my V60 doesn't have NR On so not getting everything.

    • Ah, I see.  Thanks for those details! It is great to see some posts on this subject.
    • I was reading the FCC filing for the Pixel 6 yesterday and saw that it included n258 - I was wondering what that was. That will be my next phone so nice to know it will support this new spectrum. 
    • The decommissioning of Sprint sites has started, the optimistic worrying starts about which sites they will keep and convert. Only 2 out of the 3 B41 sectors are on Cellmapper, and 0 B25/26 sectors. I think another site near me also got turned off/decom'd, but I haven't checked it yet. I guess its time to start paying more attention to Sprint sites... Link to street view of the site via Google Maps ,  Link to the site in Cellmapper .

    • Haven't gone anywhere yet, so I can't speak to benefits.  My issue was that I was out on Monday morning and it appears that T-Mobile has turned off several Sprint towers near me.  I was sitting in a parking lot near Landmark Mall on -118 dBm Band 25 because two of the sites I used to connect to there were apparently not running, so data would barely move.  This is in addition to my home site which has been off for several weeks, but that wasn't an issue because I don't use wireless data at home.  But if they're starting to turn off Sprint sites and leave holes, then there's really no alternative. So far, I've only seen T-Mobile, but that makes sense since I've only been home and my home site is gone on Sprint, so the site I had been connecting to was a lot weaker.  I'll have to see when I'm out and about, possibly this weekend. When ROAMAHOME came out, I had that removed and blocked from my account since T-Mobile's network is so lousy, so my lines were not automatically pushed to MULTOCN.  I had to have the block removed and then MULTOCN manually added.  That's probably not typical. - Trip
    • Are you seeing a benefit from MOCN?  Is it true that MOCN is highly biased to using T-Mobile towers?  Should everyone with a non-5G phone ask for MOCN? I had the impression it was supposed to be automatic now, perhaps even without being entered explicitly.  Is this not the case?  I realize that it may take some time to draw conclusions so if you do not know yet that is fine. Thanks!
