  1. Correct. They need to bring more 312-250 online to handle the load.

  2. They want to transition people slowly and they also are encouraging TNX because they want you off your sprint sim.

  3. The phone is still provisioned as Sprint, so 100% of Sprint sites are available (you also keeep Sprint's roaming partners/enabled LACs). The only catch is that if you're in an area with good T-Mobile signal and no keep sites, you'll have to band-select 25/26/41 manually to force over to the Sprint network, and eventually you'll pop back over to the T-Mobile network if you don't lock bands. Sometimes you'll even have to skip 41 for the initial lock as if there's a T-Mobile B41 site near you your phone will prefer that instead. Once you get 25/26 though, you can turn on 41 and it should stay put

  4. I believe all towers at least that was my experience with TNA here in my market (Madison, WI), but could be market by market? Of course, it'll use the TMO towers first and fallback on Sprint when TMO is the weaker or absent signal. I found in my usage on TNA I would pop on and off TMO and Sprint towers but had great "coverage" however, the speeds weren't always the best. (they are better on TNX on the same towers for my market)

  6. TNA just moves your tower priority to TMO first, then Sprint fallback (roaming, but native). Can't really go too wrong in that case, IMO. TNA vs TNX is another story based on your market. My market uses Sprint B41, 25, 26 just fine on TNX so it's been a glorious improvement of service and speeds, but TNA seems like a no brainer. TNX is super nice though for many other reasons I've found -> I actually get phone calls and texts in a timely manner, the WiFi-calling actually works to send MMS messages, and the HD voice seems more stable. YMMV

  7. Hello Mike & forum mates! I have some other info that may or may not (again) help to solve that "mysterious" problem regarding the refreshing issue on my Android 7 device, described in the following steps: 1) Full system image backup using TWRP, just to make sure I could recover from the exactly same point I was before this test. 2) Clean install from the original system image (LineageOS 14.1 / Android 7.1) 3) Installation of SignalCheck Pro from Google Play Store without any other app installed, just to make sure another app could not be interfering in SCP functionalit

  8. Ran a few snowy 1AM speedtests at each sector of my serving site tonight: Backhaul is looking awfully capped at 700Mb/s. Like you said, far from slow - though it'd certainly be refreshing to see T-Mobile sites equipped with multi-gig backhaul like Verizon is doing with their mmWave sites. 2.5+Gb/s speed tests are a dime a dozen in the Verizon subreddit. While Verizon and AT&T certainly have an advantage as last-mile providers (among many other things), I do wonder if/how the acquisition of Sprint's fiber backbone will be able to benefit T-Mobile in this regar

  9. Neville also confirmed (on twitter) that they're planning on adding an "Ultra Capacity" layer to their coverage maps in the near future. Very glad to see all this work being done. That said, here's hoping this isn't shaping up to be a finalized look at which sites T-Mobile is planning to keep - just looking at rural NY, the impact on rural coverage is somewhat minimal. At least a few Sprint sites in poor coverage areas (Chazy, Millport, or Mosherville for example) that aren't showing up on the map.

  10. Someone on Reddit pointed out that as of the latest T-Mobile coverage map update, it looks like T-Mobile is now showing Sprint LTE in some areas as "LTE Roaming" coverage. A good way to see the change is Lart2150's coverage map. If you compare the 2/6/2021 update to the 1/25/2021 update you'll notice a lot more magenta specks on the RLTE layer. https://coverage.lart2150.com/vector/#b=RLTE&m=2021-02-06&lat=38.85682013474361&lng=-93.603515625&z=4
