  1. Sorry by I commented back, I was wrong it's not SA 5G, it's NSA Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk

  3. Given the decades Verizon (and AT&T) and their successors had a monopoly on low band I think this request should be deferred for a simular amount of time.

  4. Awesome! If you're tracking the n41 deployment on the east side, feel free to post updates in the sponsor forum! It would be great to get that data on our maps.

  6. Some positive news today is that I had to Venmo my new landlord for an APT between Berkeley and Brunswick streets. The Open Signal maps show that Sprint has little to no spectrum/bandwidth but T-Mobile has swaths of it. Needles to say it saved the day as I was able to search for his account complete the Venmo transaction in the basement of the building with my iPhone 11 Pro Max showing 3-4 bars of service. Had it still been Sprint I would have been shit out of luck... [emoji18][emoji1430] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. T-Mobile's network is all sort of funked out at the moment in Houston. PCS has been widened for T-Mobile, which has pushed out the WCDMA carrier to Sprint's D block. That D block used to house 1x/EVDO. I'm not sure where T-Mobile has moved CDMA to (and I can't check since I don't have a sprint line). They could fit one CDMA carrier alongside a WCDMA carrier in a 5x5 block. But I'm not sure about two (unless 3G EVDO has been shut down for good?). Sprint's two B25 carriers is still online in the same place (E block and G Block). I'll try to see if I can sniff out the CDMA carriers this

  8. As of early yesterday morning, data on my phone is now routed through T-Mobile's backbone network rather than Sprint's. There are a few odd caveats to this: Hotspot data still runs through Sprint, with what appears to be a worse-than-usual latency penalty. I can simultaneously have on-phone data from T-Mobile and hotspot data from Sprint, with active data sessions on both. Latency on-phone is better across the board, even on Sprint towers; I'm seeing as low as 29ms on B41, and a few ms lower at times on 25/26. On the T-Mobile network I'm seeing as low as 16ms on LTE; thinking

  9. One of the goals of this is to likely get more Sprint users on 5g phones on the T-Mobile network. Typically in mergers unique sites are converted first. Given that I have seen no T-Mobile conversion permits for unique Sprint sites, T-Mobile's goal might just be to cream off the Sprint users that live near their sites or don't care. Conversion of sites could then be determined by profitability and how many people actually leave T-Mobile.

  10. I wonder what kind of network/Wi-Fi calling switch over is happening at the end of Oct. Maybe TM will be primary first network?

  11. Maybe so, but if a software update to the device is required to enable T-Mobile WiFi calling on these devices, that would require coordination with the manufacturers who have no interest in supporting these old devices.

  12. I had been seeing T-Mobile neighbor cells for months, but only when my Sprint signal was weak. Tonight I'm suddenly seeing new behavior, TMO neighbors consistently mixed in with Sprint neighbors regardless of connection strength. At one point my Pixel 4 was connected to B41 and I had B12, B25, and B41 neighbors on the list. Pretty cool, and fun (in a nerdy sense) to watch.
