Galaxy s21 leaks and rumors


Recommended Posts

Actually going back to my original post it was definitely a different promo.  The text came in Tuesday after Easter about it and it does explicitly say 50% off with eligible trade in.  And it was probably just targeted at my specific line too, my wife didn't get that text.

I really hope there isn't a curved display on the Ultra, no one wants a curved screen. But if you get the plus you get screwed on specs.

what the... lol im waiting for my package to come. when i ordered the phone, the order said that itll come with a diff type of sim. but i guess not. thanks for the heads up. ill up

Delivered this afternoon. Didn't get to set it up until a short time ago. Still downloading/installing apps. Haven't activated yet. Didn't activate out of the box like I thought it would.

Ah, yeah that would do it. This one targeted the three lines that didn't have any payments left on them. Email came on Thursday. I went to the store to do one of the upgrades and they did say it was a company wide promo. If there are any other lines needing upgrades and are paid off, might be eligible.

Yeah, we got this (as a text message) on my son's line, that was already paid off.  For an iPhone12.

Given the highest level device is an LG G7 (my wife's), and its not on the acceptable list, I don't think we'd be able to do it....but I suppose I could find and call a store and ask to be sure.

Dang, yeah not on the list. But never hurts to ask. Might still get something for trading it in (if that's something you want to do).

The LG G7 seems to be missing from several of these trade in promo's.  When I got my S20 FE the G7 was listed on one list for the 500 dollar trade in credit but was missing from another list when I went to the store to do the actual trade in.  I got my trade in credit ok, but it made me worry about it a little.

Now I can't seem to find the LG G7 listed for any of the trade in's.

Got my dad's S21 activated today. Seems like a pretty good device, and he's happy to have a new phone instead of a second-hand one from me ha.

Still waiting on the Ultra. Going on 20 days since the order. No estimated shipping date...

Ordered my S21 two weeks ago, says shipping between 4/30 and 5/12. Not holding my breath.

That was the same window on my dad's S21, but got notice that it was going to ship last night, arrived here this afternoon. Hoping they get it out to you soon!

Same here, was originally at order time slated to be 2-3 weeks out before even available (and mine's a 256gb version), next thing I know a shipment notification came in email later that night and it was on my doorstep the next day.

I'm finally going to TNX.  Does the S21 boot in T-Mobile mode after this, or should I flash T-Mobile firmware? (or even unlocked..)

Are you able to flash T-Mobile firmware to unlocked without breaking knox (being rooted)? My understanding is T-Mobile firmware is required to be able to roam on US Cellular (in parts of WV, WI, IA, OR etc) and even then you likely need to be whitelisted?

 

At least with the unlocked you can also get more ram and storage.

I'm surprised the May security update isn't out yet.

Be surprised no more, it's out right now.

Per my question above, I was unsure.  FYI: The "Sprint" S21 and "T-Moble" S21 share the same software, which makes sense since once you put in a T-Mobile SIM for TNX, it becomes T-Mobile on booup.

yes, sorry, I must have missed this question above. Boots into T-mobile, your Sprint life is long gone. You are all pink now my friend! 

Our markets (Milwaukee and Madison) are really great for TNX usage. Sprint towers and T-mobile towers mix like you saw on TNA, but the speeds are far better on either towers on TNX than on TNA, in my experience. I'll test out the USCC roaming in Western Wisconsin on June 12th when I make my annual pilgrimage West to pick up our side of beef. I am rarely without a Sprint or T-mobile signal and have picked up ATT when not around Madison otherwise.

When you guys gets a voicemail, do you get the notification from the dial-in voicemail AND the visual voice mail. If you deal with the visual voice mail, you STILL have to call into the dial-in voicemail to get rid of the notification? It's happening on both my phone S21 Ultra and my wife's S21+. Super duper annoying. Is there any fix or work around??

Haven't had a voicemail since I got the phone... so not sure. I'll try to note if I do ever get one haha.

    • Good point. You could try submitting a report to @NevilleRay or @TMobileHelp about the congestion on the nearby macro sites?
    • Sure, but it didn't matter how Sprint's 800 MHz was down there, since we have 1900 MHz LTE on the DAS.  I'd rather my T-Mobile iPhone used the Sprint Legacy 1900 MHz LTE signal that's available down there than the 600 MHz 5G/LTE macro network, which is congested as we share it with a major transit hub in the area.  My phone will hop over to the Sprint signal when it loses the T-Mobile signal entirely, but it's a hard transition to "Roaming," not seamless like the Sprint "keep" sites are around here.
    • It's still got to be better than Sprint's 800 MHz was, right? 🙂 At some point that DAS will have to be accounted for by the T-Mobile Network Folks. It's probably on some list somewhere with a plan to either upgrade it or shut it down.
    • I wish these network testing and speed testing organizations would hit the providers with a big negative for areas with unusable or very slow coverage.  The difference between 1mb/s and 1,000mb/s in download speed or between 3g/4g/LTE/5g/etc. doesn't matter very much to most people who are not using their mobile device as a hotspot or casting to another screen.  The difference between no service and 1mb/s is very important to all users in all areas and its importance should be taken into account on these tests.  Upload speed should always be a minimum of 5% of the download speed for the download speed to be counted as useful.
    • I just wrote about this over in the Northern Jersey thread. I drove along I-80 from NYC out to Mt. Arlington, NJ and lost 5G coverage once and for less than a mile. It's only a 50-60 mile trip but it drives you through some pretty hilly/mountainous areas so I was surprised to see T-Mobile maintain 5G for virtually the entire ride.
