  1. I’ve been told and have read that t-mobile will not switch your plan, you must request any plan change. Not sure if that also applies to legacy Sprint plans. When t-mobile improved the Magenta plans recently I had to specifically ask to be switched from Magenta 1.0 to Magenta 2.0 even though there was no change in price.
  2. Yea the way I understand it if you keep all the free lines at least 12 months you're home free.

  4. There are no free line promos going on right now but they ran at least 3 last year and one already this year. I find out about them mostly on Reddit but T-Mobile News and Twitter etc. announces them. They usually run for a week. The stipulation is you hold on to them for a year and they are your free and clear. If you drop a line before 12 month then the free lines left on your account that are less than a year old become chargable. People are creative as to what they use them for. Some rent them to friends others use them for T-Mobile Tuesday benefits. Mine are being held as I said for the
  5. Same here. Excellent coverage much better than I was getting on Sprint. The price is right too. Initially 4 lines with one free and last year added four more lines for free. Those are in safekeeping for the grandkids when they are old enough. I figure when they are 20 or 30 years old should be about right.

  7. Pretty sure if you’re on magenta plus you will automatically be on Max come February 24.
  8. Personally 1.5 MB’s is perfectly adequate. Others disagree.
  9. The T-Mobile support site and Netflix’ FAST App confirms 1.5mbs for 480p.
  10. Is this the issue? If so looks like they have a workaround. https://www.androidpolice.com/2020/12/21/the-internet-wont-break-on-older-android-devices-in-2021-thanks-to-certificate-authoritys-workaround/
  11. You can certainly get your wife a T-Mobile plan independently. It will be billed separately. You can add an additional line to her plan and port your sprint number to her plan when you choose. Or not. Personally I created a T-Mobile account (Magenta) and ported 4 lines over 2 week period. Compared to my ED1500 plan I’m paying about $90/mo less. I’m in Chicagoland and T-Mobile service is excellent. I am a bit concerned how it will be in more rural areas however. With COVID as it is I haven’t done much reconnaissance in the rural areas to date.
  12. THANKS. Truth be told I did eventually find it late last night and was going to update my post here. I appreciate you reconfirming where this bugger is located. It's a subtle thing and I wonder how many people even know this iOS feature exists. At least on Sprint is was fairly straight forward as a selectable free feature "Calls on iCloud Devices" if memory serves me correctly. All the best, J
  13. I need to do this again but for the life of me I can’t find/remember the page where you select lines to enable. Can you refresh my mind? I’ve tried the digits app and web page but I’m at a loss as to where I need to go exactly. Any help appreciated. I just want to enable digits on the T-Mobile lines with iPhones. When I go into the digits app I see a single line associated with my T-Mobile ID but I have half a dozen lines and they are not listed. The web site just wants to use itself as a digits line.
  14. Hi, I'm an iPhone user but would like to contribute to things like cellmapper.net. T-Mobile is handing out "free" lines like popcorn so I have a few unused to devote to my quest. I know pretty much nothing about Android phones. Is there such thing as an inexpensive 5G phone capable of running cellmapper? It would need the current LTE and NR bands 71,41,66,12,2 ... Is there a standout favorite I should look for? Do Thanks, J
