  1. At the moment T-Mobile only broadcasts 5G on n71, n41 and mmWave (very isolated deployment). In the future there will likely be n25/2 and n66, but probably not this year. As others have said, the 5G icon shows if the band you are connected to is enabled to serve as an anchor band for 5G. At the moment, B2 and B66 serve as potential anchor bands. B12 may be an anchor band in some areas. B71 is not used as an anchor band at this time. The only way to know for sure if you are actually on a 5G band is through an engineering screen or one of the signal apps mentioned.
  2. Dang, yeah not on the list. But never hurts to ask. Might still get something for trading it in (if that's something you want to do).
  3. Ah, yeah that would do it. This one targeted the three lines that didn't have any payments left on them. Email came on Thursday. I went to the store to do one of the upgrades and they did say it was a company wide promo. If there are any other lines needing upgrades and are paid off, might be eligible.
  4. I traded in my Dad's LG G8 and got the S21 for free + tax. Upgraded it to the 256MB version for $2 a month. Maybe a different promo? I should add, the phones were completely paid off, so that might have impacted the promo.
  5. They took an LG G8... G8X ought to have been enough. Although now that I look at the fine print, it doesn't list the G8X. Weird. The phone ships separate of the return kit. If they even ship a return kit. The last time they just emailed a shipping label and it went into my spam so I missed it.
  6. Used their trade in deal for a "free" S21, or greatly reduced S21+ or Ultra. Went with the Ultra, $250 (plus tax) to upgrade and no monthly cost. Not gonna complain!
  7. Does that include the surcharges ("administrative" charges) as well or just taxes? My taxes rarely eclipsed $10 for all 6 lines combined. Even combining with the surcharges, that still comes to less than $40, meaning a $20 increase overall. Edit: I called and according to support, my bill will come out to be the same +/- a dollar. I'm not sure I get the math. I hope that's the case though.
  8. Mine jumped $10 per line (6 lines). Not terribly pleased. The email said it would maybe be a couple dollars. Let us know if they fix it.
  9. There is this one. Not zoomable, but bigger with a little more detail than other's they've shared. https://cdn.tmobile.com/content/dam/t-mobile/ntm/coverage/maps/Ultra-Capacity-5G.desktop1.jpg
  10. A test reaching speeds near 400Mbps can use over 500MB of data. If you're getting faster than that, easy to pull 1GB of data per test.
  11. The data use section in the settings on your phone should tell you what is using all the data.
  12. It was definitely the Feb. update. I tried my headphones as soon as that updated rolled out haha.
  13. Got the Feb. FE update on Wednesday, and the March update yesterday as well. Turnaround time not bad, even for the Feb. update. Better than it has been in the past. The March one surprised me. Thankfully the Feb. update finally fixed the bluetooth issue I'd been having. Can finally use my headphones again.
  14. Ah, then you're probably looking at B12/71 on the larger one, with B2/66 on the other. Should be able to tell better when work is done, if you can get a closer picture.
