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.

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.

  • 3 weeks later...

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.

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.

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.

    • Are there ground mounted radios? There are 8 jumpers to the Commscope antenna, so 4xLowband/4xMidband should be deployed or coming soon...
    • So I wonder if this Sprint keep site conversion is the same setup just with different antenna. There's only 1 Nokia radio, so its either 600/700 only or 1900/2100 only + 2500. It wouldn't make sense to be 600/700 with 2500 without SA N41 because it would only be able to do B41 LTE without 1900/2100 to serve as anchor for NSA N41. The Sprint B25 radio was retained and is connected to the antenna and is currently the only technology broadcasting. This is also a very dense area for T-Mobile. 
    • It kinda just blows my mind that it's been almost a year and a half since start of auction and there still isn't a band designation. Why spend almost a billion dollars (T-Mobile's $873 million plus Sprint's $114 million) if you can't even get around to working something like that out with the 3GPP? I pray there's something going on behind the scenes, but I'm not too hopeful seeing as the only other owner of the band is DISH, haha.    I'd be shocked if T-Mobile doesn't keep a strong mmWave presence in lower/mid-Manhattan and downtown Brooklyn with their 5G small-cell rollout. That's key use case. But I agree, it'll definitely be interesting to see what they do outside of that area. You gotta imagine that Verizon played a pretty big part in how the nodes were designed, and Verizon typically loads their small cells up with every mid/high-band tech they've got. So it shouldn't be a matter of if the nodes support the tech, just if T-Mobile deploys the radios. IMO, T-Mobile's mmWave strategy (for both macros and small cells) kinda comes down to if T-Mobile is open to exploring the possibility of mmWave-based Home Internet in NYC.   I really hope they do keep them. Even if they aren't immediately upgraded to 5G, they'd be a big benefit for the network in general. Plus, fiber is already run, permits are already signed, sites are already built. Hopefully the neutral-nature of the nodes makes conversion easy.  I haven't spotted any nodes broadcasting the keep PLMN, but I'm not all that surprised about that.   Agreed. There are one or two redditors (who shall not be named) who love to spread questionable info, especially when it comes to NYC. Every carrier has Manhattan blanketed with mmWave! You can get FIOS at any address! T-Mobile has mmWave on every site and it's fast! T-Mobile has the densest small-cell network! Every site has 5gb/s backhaul (or if it doesn't, it's "just about to be upgraded")! It's really weird. Subreddit used to be so much better before it blew up and a handful of great contributors left.
    • My best guess is that it's a combination of the correct equipment not being available to support all of T-Mobile's mmWave bands and n41 taking precedence over mmWave deployment nationwide. It'll be interesting to see whether T-Mobile decides to make mmWave a citywide thing like Verizon (that they'll aggregate with n41 for gigabit speeds in more places) or if they'll just deploy it in stadiums, airports, and convention centers.  When T-Mobile acquired Metro, they retained pretty much all of their DAS sites. If they retain all of Sprint's small cells, they'd have a small cell network easily rivaling Verizon and could have an extremely dense mmWave/LAA/CBRS footprint to compliment their already dense (in most places) macro network. Someone recently made a post about how T-Mobile's tests in C-band were interfering with a local satellite TV operator so it seems like T-Mobile definitely has some interest in getting C-band deployed sooner than later, even if they won't be able to use the spectrum just yet. But like you said, it'll probably be another year or so before we start seeing deployments of that. I completely missed that thread but reading over it, so many people are very confused about the mmWave situation in NYC and T-Mobile's network here as a whole. It's pretty sad how people completely disregarded OP immediately.
    • Interestingly enough, today I came across a site in Seattle where they did the same thing. Previously, Commscope FFHH-65B-R3 panels were live with quadband; now there's only 1900/2100/2500. My knee jerk reaction is that I don't like this deployment. It makes optimizing handoffs sloppy and complicated. I  shot an email to the Seattle network team asking what the logic is - let's see what they say.
