  1. Analyst: T-Mobile is now worth no less than $172 per share (current price: $118) https://seekingalpha.com/article/4371958-t-mobiles-new-price-target-offers-upside
  2. Apple still does not even have any 5G iPhones yet. They were also late to 3G and 4G, but yet still sell the most phones at the most profit every year. Successful companies will give the market what people want to buy.
  3. Sounds like a niche criticism. Why does the average American need more than 100mbps cellular speeds while mostly stuck at home on WiFi in the middle of a pandemic? The industry-record subscriber gains seem to indicate that T-Mobile is investing in the right services at the right value for what most consumers need right now.
  4. New T-Mobile Overtakes AT&T as #2 Wireless Provider https://finance.yahoo.com/news/t-mobile-overtakes-t-america-200100963.html
  5. The following worked from a google search. The screen still dims, but at least it doesn't totally timeout. If it's sufficient for you to only keep screen on when charging, you can turn on the Stay awake option in Developer options. To do this: Open Settings, navigate to About [device] (tablet, phone etc.) Find Build number entry there. If there's none, it may be in Software information subsection. Tap Build number 7 times Make sure that a message pops up saying that you've become a developer (or that developer mode is already enabled) Go back to Setting
  6. The OnePlus 8 phone is good post-merger. The first 5G phones such as the Galaxy S10 are obsolete.
  7. This week I switched from a Sprint 4G phone to a T-Mobile 5G. Connectivity is significantly better, specifically when I am deep inside my apartment building or in an elevator down to the underground garage.
  8. Ajit Pai is making lots of enemies on the road to 5G In moving to free up Wi-Fi and bolster superfast service, Pai has alienated some industries, congressional committees and Trump Cabinet leaders. https://www.politico.com/news/2020/07/08/ajit-pai-enemies-5g-351803
  9. I have the A71 now. How do I set screen time out to never? 10 minutes is currently the longest setting displayed. My past LG phones had never as an option.
  10. Good. Hopefully the small number of Sprint 5G users have now upgraded to newer T-Mobile 5G-compatible devices.
  11. Okay, I have now ordered the A71 to replace my G7 based on your assurance.
  12. The promotion looks like it is only for a new line of service, not to upgrade an existing line.
  13. If it is the same specs as T-Mobile's, it only supports bands 41 and 71 for 5G. (also no band 25 for 4G) https://www.t-mobile.com/cell-phone/samsung-galaxy-a71-5g
  14. I get confused by all these Galaxy variants. 🥴
  15. I wish that BestBuy would also sell the LG V60 and OnePlus 8 for Sprint.
  16. I usually bought my past Sprint phones through BestBuy since they had better sales deals.
  17. The phone would be for a Sprint line. 😄
  18. Good. Son needs to focus.
  19. Where can I buy this phone besides sprint.com?
  20. Former Sprint CEO and current Softbank COO Marcelo Claure will personally purchase an additional $500 Million worth of shares in T-Mobile with a loan from SoftBank as SoftBank prepares to sell $20 billion in T-Mobile shares to raise needed cash. https://www.wsj.com/articles/sprints-old-boss-adds-500-million-stake-in-t-mobilewith-help-from-softbank-11592870334
  21. Excellent. Price of DISH stock now significantly up: https://seekingalpha.com/symbol/DISH
  22. To be realistic, I would expect New T-Mobile to be cutting thousands of jobs to eliminate overlap in the combined companies as well as adapt to the reduced physical footprint needs of the COVID-19 era.
  23. Another speculative article about Dish, Boost, and T-Mobile. https://www.fiercewireless.com/operators/dish-s-intentions-once-again-question-day
  24. Thank you! I could not find it before because the filter selection for 5G phones is not working correctly. Unless I am failing again, I unfortunately cannot find these phones sold anywhere outside the Sprint website. I have usually bought my Sprint phones through Best Buy. Also, T-Mobile is giving a 50% off promotion for OnePlus 8 but not Sprint?
