  1. Yes, n66 is indeed rolling out in select locations.

  2. I have a SCP user who reached out to me with what appeared to be valid T-Mobile standalone n66 in use in New Jersey.

  3. eNB 44643. Don't think this is too far from you, @Paynefanbro. Speeds were okay (248/18.6), but I was a couple blocks away from the site.

  4. Mine jumped by $5/line, but considering the eliminated taxes and fees, my bill only went up 15 cents overall. Considering I've seen those taxes and fees jump around month to month, I'm going to call the consistency this should bring to my bill a net win. - Trip

  5. Well I am disappointed in both Tmo and Sprint. This location in southern utah that is a "resort" area of sorts. Is blocked by a few mountains. I tracked the tower down so I know where it's at in relation. Point being, they should have\need to add another tower or something. The part I am most disgusted by. The roaming agreement with att (which btw solved the problem with a tower in a better spot). But the data here .04 & .03. What type of agreement is that. And to compound matters (not the providers fault) but the place we are staying, is having a wifi issue as well...

  9. Gotcha, thanks Mike....I'd only read the Business Wire article back when the news first hit which really didn't give date specifics. And I was cross referencing that with another release strictly about the new phones (A52 and A72 as well) themselves which touted April 9th release, so I just assumed that the free upgrade was also available out the gate too ha.

  11. Just watched the webcast. Some cool stuff in it: Great Free 5G Upgrade: T-Mobile is giving everyone a free 5G smartphone. Trade in your existing mobile phone, and T-Mobile will give you a brand-spanking-new, Samsung Galaxy A32 5G smartphone for free, exclusive to T-Mobile postpaid customers. This offer applies to new and existing customers, and ANY (literally any) old phone in working condition. Great Unlimited Trade-Up: People with limited data plans on Verizon and AT&T can trade up to both unlimited data and full access to T-Mobile’s expansive 5G network all at the same o

  12. 14ms, so about what I typically get on n71 SA (or n41 NSA). I wonder if it might have been better if n41 was the PCC...

  13. Awesome NR aggregation! That site usually has very spotty speeds. Sometimes I connect and get over 300Mbps and other times I connect and it struggles to go over 100Mbps. So the speeds you got given that you were a few blocks away are pretty impressive. Were pings noticeably lower?

  14. mmWave + LAA site in Prospect Heights finally got n41. eNB 41047 if anyone wants to map it on Cellmapper or try to get over 1 Gbps on it.

  15. At the moment T-Mobile only broadcasts 5G on n71, n41 and mmWave (very isolated deployment). In the future there will be n25/2 and n66, but not very widespread yet. As others have said, the 5G icon shows if the band you are connected to is enabled to serve as an anchor band for 5G. At the moment, B2 and B66 serve as potential anchor bands. B12 may be an anchor band in some areas. B71 is not used as an anchor band at this time. The only way to know for sure if you are actually on a 5G band is through an engineering screen or one of the signal apps mentioned.

  17. 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.

  18. I traded in my Dad's LG G8 and got the S21 for free + tax. Upgraded it to the 256MB version for $2 a month. Maybe a different promo? I should add, the phones were completely paid off, so that might have impacted the promo.

  19. Used their trade in deal for a "free" S21, or greatly reduced S21+ or Ultra. Went with the Ultra, $250 (plus tax) to upgrade and no monthly cost. Not gonna complain!

  20. The R211s are still coming, should arrive later this year, last I heard they may/may not come with wifi built-in, don't know about cell coverage. The plans for the L-train renovation happened, T-Mobile is taking their sweet time jumping on it though, as Verizon and AT&T are already on it, per this tweet: The F train tunnel between East Broadway and York Street is next for cell coverage. Still no idea if T-Mobile will add LTE lowband, B12 or B71 on Transit Wireless's DAS, as Transit Wireless said they were ready for B71 after the auction in 2017. Yes, Sprint is st

  21. Mine jumped by $5 per line, but was offset by the reduced taxes and fees, overall it is about $12 a month less.

  22. Mine jumped $10 per line (6 lines). Not terribly pleased. The email said it would maybe be a couple dollars. Let us know if they fix it.

  23. Are any legacy Sprint to TNX members willing to chime in about their experiences in the NW IL and western Illinois? I've got the T-Mo SIM but haven't pulled the trigger yet. I'm specifically curious about the following areas: Barrington Lake Barrington Algonquin Crystal Lake Rockford Freeport Stockton Apple Canyon Lake Galena Appreciate any thoughts on service and whether the switch has been good, bad or indifferent in terms of speed and availability. I currently have an iPhone Xr. It seems to me that Sprint's network will decay over time a

  24. My bill just jumped up overnight, $22 to be precise. This is not cool, chatting with them now this is bs. I get less features for more money? no thanks.

  25. On another note, I'm curious about the upgrade path for the Transit Wireless DAS. I know additional connectivity was on the docket for the incoming R211 trains, but I don't believe anything came out of that. Additionally, I don't think that whatever was considered/planned for the L-train renovation actually came to fruition. Regardless, that system hasn't been touched in forever. I believe the last upgrade was a B2-add back in 2018. T-Mobile never even got around to adding B12, which they promised back in Dec 2015. Also, I've noticed that the B2 refarm hasn't affected spectrum alloca

  26. Wow that’s awesome! In a matter of weeks they went from 60-100 MHz. Patiently waiting for that in Brooklyn T-Mobile really need to get around to increasing backhaul substantially though because I’m getting similar speeds at 60MHz here.

  29. Does the phone need to be tied to a line? I have an old phone sitting around, but it's an old TracPhone. I have a free line on my account standing by. Would I be able to get the Samsung phone and activate it on the standby line?

  33. T-Mobile said during their investor day presentation that they plan on aggregating n71 with n41 this year and using n71 as the PCC, allowing for greater range on n41.

  34. Lots of N41 antennas around Denver. Saw nearly every T-Mobile site I could spot along I-70 in far west Denver, and along 6th to just south of Downtown with N41 antennas. Both original and updated antenna versions. My phone wouldn't let me connect to most of them for some reason. So either they were new, or we were moving too fast, or idk what. Did find another fully modernized T-Mobile site at Iliff and Oneida that I was able to test. Has 80Mhz of N41 on air, 10Mhz of N71, 5Mhz B71, 5Mhz B12, 15Mhz B2, and 10Mhz B66. Site is co-located with a Sprint B25/26/41 site. 694Mbps down and

  35. Yeah it shows T-Mobile Unlimited Freedom w/Taxes & Fees Inc Unlimited Talk, Text & Data, my line fees went from $65 to $75 a month for my main line and my second line went from $45 to $50. These people are so damn stupid on the phone I literally was screaming at these people because all they do is go on script. They literally don't understand when you talk to them, they submitted a request to roll me back because I apparently never got an email or text letting me know to opt out. Absolutely insane.
