  1. Network roaming was their first step but roaming is not particularly useful in that it requires a user to lose their home network connection before the roaming connection gets established. In weak signal areas and overloaded network areas, users stay on the poorly performing network. Their second step was moving 5G from Sprint to T-Mobile. This was for bragging rights but lost them some customers when 5G Sprint customers were forcibly moved from the Sprint network to the T-Mobile network in areas where the T-Mobile network did not work well for them and users with certain 5G devices los
  2. Big assumptions here but these numbers look possible. The Apple September 10th announcement is expected to include the release date for the 5G iPhone 12 and possibly an iPad 5G and Apple Watch 5G. The release date is currently expected to be sometime in October. T-Mobile is not allowing new 5G devices to be activated on the Sprint network and requires a migration of that line to T-Mobile's network when activating a new 5G device. If we assume that more than 2% of Sprint legacy customers purchase a new device each month and that Sprint has ~50 million legacy customers still on its networ
  3. I am going to go with DSS to allow T-Mobile LTE and 5G to be shared with each other.
  4. And that was also the problem with Sprint. They spent loads of money upgrading everything in certain markets so they could get bragging rights even when some of the upgrades in those markets were not needed. At the same time they all but ignored other markets since they did not have the money to perform the needed upgrades everywhere. Sprint also could not properly manage where to direct their limited funds based on system load as T-Mobile claims they do. I would much rather work with a company that uses data to determine where to do their upgrades rather than a company that is just throwi
  5. Unloaded 5G and overloaded 4G is unlikely to be in place for long since most customers replace their mobile phones every couple years. As new phones come out that support 5G and the phone makers stop making phones that do not support 5G, customers will naturally purchase new 5G enabled phones thus moving themselves to 5G. I would expect greater than 2% of customers will move to 5G each month over the next couple years as new phones are purchased by customers. This mass migration to 5G may not start until this fall when all the flagship models will support 5G but when it does, it will be uns
  6. I seem to remember that T-Mobile has a complex automated monitoring system that generates regular capacity reports for each of their sites. The network people use those reports to decide how to boost capacity at or near sites that are already overloaded or getting close to being overloaded along with how to fill coverage gaps. It then takes time to order the equipment and schedule the work that is required to fix the overload problem or fill the gap. They do not just throw all their bandwidth up on every site as they properly manage their money.
  7. They call you from 2 lines a fraction of a second apart in time. The later call will immediately go to your voicemail since the first call is trying to connect to your phone to ring it. Even with call waiting, 2 calls cannot ring your phone at the same time. As soon as the voicemail answers one of the calls, they hang up the other call that is connecting to your phone. This usually occurs before the call ever causes your phone to ring or shows up in your missed calls log. This also prevents most spam blockers from blocking the call since they usually operate when call is connected to your
  8. Failure is not an option. It would be best to limit change to only those areas where there is very little risk at this time. If New T-Mobile messes up the network integration (looking at you Sprint Network Vision) in the middle of this virus crisis, there will be hell to pay. Large numbers of people are dependent on their mobile phones, hot spots, and internet data connections right now for work, school, news, shopping, entertainment and just to keep contact with work, friends and family while they are stuck in their homes. If connectivity breaks, they can no longer communicate

  12. Any chance you could add a bulk upload and bulk download feature? The bulk upload should give the option to append data or to replace the data. The bulk download should download the data in CSV format. The easiest way to get data out of fusion tables is by downloading the fusion table to a comma separated value (CSV) text file. CSV files can be opened and edited in any common spreadsheet applications to put the data in the format you request. I would hate to make someone type in many 10's of thousands of sites one at a time.
  13. A usable signal on 1x800 is available much further away than the distance any Sprint LTE band is usable. It was likely from another site that is further away or was voice roaming on another CDMA carrier in the area.
