    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    I mean, in the borough of Manhattan they are. You'd think they would be more than tied with Verizon too considering their spectrum position.

    Android Phone with Best Reception?

    I am so depressed with the RF performance of the Essential phone. It's a great phone with everything other than the RF reception, and that's basically a deal breaker. I live in an area that has pretty good coverage so it's not as much of an issue, but when I'm traveling there are places I know I should have coverage and I don't.

    Yes, and that I can use non-Sprint approved phones that are compatible with Sprint. I have one that's totally compatible from China but can't be used.

    AT&T LTE and Network Discussion

    AT&T Band 5 is live in the San Diego area, I have a phone from China that only supports Band 5 in the US and can get LTE.
  5. The Essential phone is also supposed to be supporting upload carrier aggregation, so it's possible that's part of why you're getting higher upload speeds.

    S10 family rumors and news

    I'd like eSIM capability. It would make traveling much easier.
  7. Something that's interesting, when I do a network search on my essential phone, 312-530 shows up as an option, but it is "forbidden" and I can't connect to it. I wonder if anyone knows what that's about.
  8. Interesting, that's been used for MagicBoxes previously.

    [PSA] Sprint Soft Launches VoLTE

    That would be my assumption as well, and it is in the LA market, but I was in the South Bay last week and it was not enabled, so I'm not sure what's going on or what the delay is.

    [PSA] Sprint Soft Launches VoLTE

    My unlocked Essential Phone did a profile/SIM card update when I restarted just now, and I'm not sure if it did before, but it has the toggle for enhanced 4G LTE mode (VoLTE). I'm not in a soft-launch market so I'm unable to confirm whether or not it's enabled. Theoretically the IMS app on the SIM card is the only thing needed if the phone's firmware supports VoLTE.
  11. I have no doubt Sprint will restrict devices in the same way AT&T does when it comes to VoLTE use. Sprint is by far the most restrictive carrier when it comes to devices, even if it is a fully compatible device...

    That's true without a doubt, it sucks in terms of RF performance compared to be LG V20, but Android P seemed to make it even worse - it doesn't aggregate carriers like it did before. I might actually downgrade to see.

    My performance on Android P. on my Essential phone has been a lot crappier too. I thought it was just in my head but maybe that's it.

    [PSA] Sprint announces GEN3 (4th iteration) Magic Box

    It'll support CDMA voice as well! That's a big deal!

    iPhone XS Thread

    Verizon now supports VoLTE devices with no CDMA including certain GSM/WCDMA/LTE iPhones. If you can set the Verizon SIM to LTE only you shouldn't have any problem. Non-CDMA phones on Verizon even get provisioned automatically to roam on ATT HSPA+ in several areas where CDMA/LTE Verizon phones don't, probably in anticipation of the CDMA network shutdown.
