  1. Will do I drove by the other day and there is actually 4 antennas per sector, ill snap new photos once they are done.
  2. Noticed a crew here in the middle of town yesterday that completely ripped and replaced this entire site that was GMO 1900MHz LTE only, I don't keep up with T-Mobile's gear but they were putting up this brand new configuration today.
  3. Nice, I'll PM you have a question about a cell site.
  4. Was AT&T previously on this site? This almost looks like a new build
  5. Either the site is down for upgrades, or your connecting to a cell site that has had recent capacity upgrades and your phone is preferring it over the closer site. Band 2 1900MHz is T-Mobile's primary LTE band with B66 AWS 1700/2100MHz as an extra capacity layer, you could have been connecting originally to the closer site that potentially had 700MHz LTE. Best way to look at PCI's and frequency band indicators is going into your iPhone's dialer and typing *3001#12345#* and go to the LTE section and start tracking the PCI's near you. T-Mobile might be a challenge because their PCI's all over the place (at least here they are).
  6. I ended up bailing with 3 lines to AT&T, I can attest that AT&T has been busy adding capacity to its network. When I left AT&T back in 2016 only LTE band was 700MHz and a couple sites had 1900MHz for capacity. Since I've came back to AT&T every site here has B2 1900MHz, B66 AWS, and some B30 WCS sprinkled in along with FirstNet B14. I get speeds well over 100Mbps pretty much everywhere I go, and I'm not use to that lol
  7. TMobile's LTE network is in no shape to take on an influx of Sprint customers right now. The couple times I have forced my Galaxy S10 onto T-Mobile's network while the signal was strong there was a lot of congestion. B2 was terrible and saw speeds less than 2Mbps and B12 was sorta better usually hummed around 10 to 15Mbps. I quickly jumped back over to Sprint's network and tend to stay on it as long as possible until I am forced over and if things are not better by then I will bolt to AT&T.
  8. Hmm odd, yes I turned off WiFi and it populated instantly...
  9. Mike how have you been? Its been awhile! Anyway one of the last updates has borked SCP, I do not get any LTE info and it takes a few trys of reopening the app to get it to work. Background services and location are all enabled as I haven't messed with any settings, is this a known issue?
  10. No risk, when your done just update your data profile and it will restore the settings.
  11. Pretty sure Legere mentioned this a while back, 2500MHz would be used for LTE and 5G NR.
  12. ##DATA# passcode 000000 go to LTE disable bands 25, 25, and 41 and restart your phone. You should come back to riding on T-Mobile's network. You'll have to re-enable all Sprint's LTE bands or just do a data profile update to get back on Sprint's network. I put my phone back on Sprint's network as T-Mobile still has the data speeds capped to 5Mbps here.
  13. For those of you with Galaxy S10's ##DATA# passcode 000000 --> LTE --> and disable LTE bands 25, 26, and 41 and you will connect to Tmobiles network. I have been hanging out on it all day connected to B2, B12, B66, and even found 600MHz out in the wild. I must say locating Tmobile sites is difficult PCIs are all over the place and not sure how their GCIs correlate to each sector. Their network is dense AF here which makes it harder to pinpoint their sites. Also speeds are still capped to 5mbps but found some neat configurations such as B2+B12 15+5MHz CA
  14. Meh looks like I will be hanging on to my S10 for a while longer, no 5G here and that 120hz display is sorta disappointing due to its only capable at 1080p, smart money will be grabbing the S10 once the S20 drops. I will wait for a price drop or when they offer a better deal later on in the year
