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.

I forgot to post this this morning. Seems that Sprint will offer the V60. My buddy at Sprint HQ says more will be said Monday. Lets see if this pans out.

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...

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.

    • as of today band 25 being reduced on Sprint side, EARFCN 8321 is 5 MHz vs 8290 10 MHz here in LES. But when I forced roam to T-mobile it still 10 MHz band 2 EARFCN 750.
    • I sent mine back a few weeks ago. My power went out for 2 seconds and it went back to search mode. If the pebble gets disconnected from power for any amount of time, it needs to be completely re-configured. Decided it wasn't worth the hassle. I have wifi calling so I get phone calls and if I don't get texts,....depending on who it is from that's actually a bonus.
    • Just did some quick adding and 70% of the US population is in the largest 114 US MSAs. If Dish covered every MSA above 475k population (so, everything from Lafayette, LA on up), and service stopped completely outside MSA borders, they'd hit their 70%. That's while covering none of places as large as Reno, NV. Oh, and if you cover the San Juan, PR MSA, you can just hit the top 110 other MSAs, down to Pensacola, FL (so, everything with >= 500k population). Now, I fully expect Dish to omit some MSAs in the top 114 in favor of others that are closer to their footprint, or have more Boost Mobile user concentration, but this isn't a ridiculously huge lift...and is why Dish is saying they'll be building out only 15k cell sites by 2023...and they'll have help from T-Mobile as TMo casts off a bunch of redundant sites, many of which would love to immediately get a new tenant.
    • Thing is, building a coverage focused network to cover 70% of the US population using 600 isn't *that* expensive. It's the capacity play that's expensive. You need capacity if you have a ton of customers, which 10MM isn't. Alltel had 12 million customers when Verizon bought them, and covered a larger area than Dish will need to. If you spend $5 billion building a network for, say, 15 million customers, and don't have to subsidize those customers, that's not a huge outlay in the scheme of things.
