    Has anyone experienced unusual times shifts on your phone while roaming on T-Mobile? My dad is in western Kansas right now and his phone is showing UTC instead of central time. I'm not sure who he is roaming on, he's driving and not able to tell me. Normally one would roam on Nextech there, but I'm not sure if the T-Mobile deal might supersede that.

    Yes.  When Tmo first rolled out coverage in South Dakota, we had this problem on several sites.  I have also had this issue on Project Fi on some Tmo sites.

    Dang. That was a good sale. Can you take that to Sprint or does it have to be used on Fi?

    To get the $300 credit you have to activate on a Project Fi acct.  Which I already have.  So I will then go and move it over after I activate it on Project Fi.

    I'm in the market for a new phone and this one has made my radar.  I have a couple of questions for the gurus.

    I'll be using the phone on the Sprint network via Ting.

    1)  While comparing this phone to my current phone (Moto X Pure Edition) on the Phone Arena website, I noticed quite a bit of differences in band availability.  Compared to the Moto X Pure, the LG G7 ThinQ is missing bands 1, 3, 8, 12, 17, 25, 26, 38, & 41.  But, it does have some bands the Moto X does not:  20, 28, 46, & 66.  What, if any, performance difference would this make in the two phones?  Here's a link to the Phone Arena comparison:  https://www.phonearena.com/phones/compare/Motorola-Moto-X-Pure-Edition-2015,LG-G7-ThinQ/phones/9694%2C10779

    2)  Never owned an LG phone and heard this one was pretty much pure Android.  How much bloatware is installed and can it be disabled?  Any annoyances to deal with?

    Thanks much,


    1.  According to people on Reddit, the G710ULM unlocked version does support 12, 25, 26 & 41, even though omitted from the LG specs page.  This is the version I purchased.  In blue.

    2.  The UI is a lot like Pure Android.  But it still has some bloatware.  As far as disabling, I defer to others.  I won't have mine for another week.
