  1. Anyone preorder a Samsung Watch 4? I ordered up the Classic for myself and the wife. I got the LTE version, I guess we can add that for $10 a month? Does anyone know how I get that added? Do I have to call in?
  2. Ooooo, Vo5Geez It drives me insane how WiFi-calling always reverts to "cellular preferred" and then I miss every. damn. call. when I'm at work until I switch it back over to "WiFi preferred". Apparently it's the network forcing this as it happens on many phones, not just the S21 line. Just an eternal frustration!!
  3. oh my, I have some Ultra Capacity right up in my area now!
  4. No, mine has not been hot. Best phone I've owned
  5. When you guys gets a voicemail, do you get the notification from the dial-in voicemail AND the visual voice mail. If you deal with the visual voice mail, you STILL have to call into the dial-in voicemail to get rid of the notification? It's happening on both my phone S21 Ultra and my wife's S21+. Super duper annoying. Is there any fix or work around??
  6. yes, sorry, I must have missed this question above. Boots into T-mobile, your Sprint life is long gone. You are all pink now my friend! Our markets (Milwaukee and Madison) are really great for TNX usage. Sprint towers and T-mobile towers mix like you saw on TNA, but the speeds are far better on either towers on TNX than on TNA, in my experience. I'll test out the USCC roaming in Western Wisconsin on June 12th when I make my annual pilgrimage West to pick up our side of beef. I am rarely without a Sprint or T-mobile signal and have picked up ATT when not around Madison otherwise.
  7. Be surprised no more, it's out right now.
  8. However, the T-mobile one let's in a lot of SMS spam that I've seen. The Sprint version was blocking that garbage too, the T-mobile seems to let the SMS through but does catch calls pretty well.
  9. I'm going to throw in a random observation that I can't back up with logs just yet, but maybe others have seen this: Recent trip from St. Louis to Madison, I was using the latest Beta (on S21 Ultra, TNX) with the trail logging on and my Bluetooth would disconnect from my Durango (2020, Uconnect 4) while I was on calls. I would exit SCP and the behavior would stop and no longer disconnect on calls. I was able to replicate this several times over even after restarting my phone and clearing caches. With trail logging on or off, it would still disconnect my bluetooth after some time. Exit SCP, phone calls were fine. SCP also crashed on me several times, but because I was driving, I didn't get the logs sent in, Mike. You can see it happen though on Highway 39 right in the middle of Illinois if you look at the signalcheck map, lots of pins and then nothing once I hit the middle of IL heading north after the crash, lol.
  10. My exact experience with trying to deal with this. It's ridiculous and no one could put the prices back to where they were. I had to give up as to not have an aneurysm. Again, it wasn't because of the "Taxes Included", the total bill is $50-ish more a month and we actually went to cheaper phones this round for payment plan, so it's likely even more, but I just can't deal with this.
  11. I would assume though that any phone through this would be TNX'ed. When I TNX'ed all 5 of my lines, they switched us over to a T-mobile plan that is more expensive than what I was paying when it was the Sprint plan. A frustration that CS was not able to help me with, so we're just stuck into paying $50 more a month in total (and it wasn't because fees were rolled into price, meaning my monthly total is $50 higher). However, if you don't TNX all your lines, then perhaps you keep the Sprint plan?
  12. Beefy at 1 giggle in size. Available on my TNX SIM too.
  13. Yes, I've seen that scam shield rarely works for me as well. I'm on TNX so I don't have call screener app anymore just the reported "superior" scam shield, but it doesn't seem to work very well. I get scam texts and calls quite a bit.
  14. Are there network reset codes for TNX (Tmobile) like there was for Sprint (##72786#)?? One of my lines (S21 5G) in the St. Louis area is dropping calls after 3 mins very consistently. It appears to happen on WiFi-calling and on TMO network. We're all on TNX for my 5 lines. Anyone have any thoughts?
  15. This is market specific. The Milwaukee and Madison market has been updated with the "layer cake" treatment and for me on TNX R15 SIM (Sprint S21 Ultra), I get B25,26,41 from Sprint. I roam on ATT and VZW occasionally. Most time is all T-Mobile for me but frequently Sprint. So those like my markets, TNX is excellent. But sounds like Raleigh is not one of those markets.
  16. I believe all towers at least that was my experience with TNA here in my market (Madison, WI), but could be market by market? Of course, it'll use the TMO towers first and fallback on Sprint when TMO is the weaker or absent signal. I found in my usage on TNA I would pop on and off TMO and Sprint towers but had great "coverage" however, the speeds weren't always the best. (they are better on TNX on the same towers for my market)
  17. lol, the one morning I didn't check! S21 Ultra on TNX also downloading same update ending xxxxAUAG
  18. TNA just moves your tower priority to TMO first, then Sprint fallback (roaming, but native). Can't really go too wrong in that case, IMO. TNA vs TNX is another story based on your market. My market uses Sprint B41, 25, 26 just fine on TNX so it's been a glorious improvement of service and speeds, but TNA seems like a no brainer. TNX is super nice though for many other reasons I've found -> I actually get phone calls and texts in a timely manner, the WiFi-calling actually works to send MMS messages, and the HD voice seems more stable. YMMV
  19. My S21 Ultra has been doing just fine. I do know that the Optimize Battery Usage (Settings > Apps > three dots > Special Access > Optimize Battery Usage) is very aggressive on the newer One UI on my S20+ previously. SCP was dying on me frequently until I prevented it from Optimizing Battery Usage on the app. Not sure if this is related or helps anyone, but helped my issues.
  20. I'll admit, I'm not sure where I find the "stand alone" information? Is it when it's connected to 5G-NR and that's the only signal shown in SCP??? I notice that in the areas where I had "5G" with my Sprint SIM through B66 now has "5G-NR" as the only thing (or section) reported in SCP. There's no LTE-AWS reported or any other type of signal.
  21. Got this case today and it's exactly what I'm looking for. Very thin polycarbonate material, cut out for buttons. Not big on large drop protection, but much thinner in the pocket. If anyone else needs a minimalist case for cheap. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08PV565DT/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  22. Yes, I learned this by trial.....went TNX and I get all Sprint LTE bands just fine. My 5G NR is very fast, far faster than with my Sprint SIM. When on strong Sprint signal, I get Sprint bands. Very pleased with this S21 Ultra on TNX!
  23. So the TNX SIM had me connecting to B25, B26, B41 on Sprint just fine. Roamed on ATT, VZW, and my T-mobile NR 5G speeds were well over 100 mbps down, 25ish up. On these same 5G signals with Sprint SIM, the speeds were abysmal. Very happy thus far with my TNX plunge! This S21 Ultra is pretty awesome and really not that much bigger than my S20+ in the hand, really. Clearly heavier, but really solid performance thus far.
  24. I bit the bullet and put the T-Mobile SIM card in my s21 ultra. I am connecting to Sprint b41 just fine.
  25. Floorguy, you are on Sprint SIM (ROMAHOME) and not getting calls?? I rarely get calls on my S20+ with Sprint SIM. Telemarketers get through just fine, but people on my plan usually go to VM or nothing like you said. I'm feverishly trying to decide if I want to use the TNX SIM that is in the box with our new S21 phones. I too live very near a Sprint tower that I believe is a keep site, but the nearest TMO tower is quite some distance away...so the interim might be rough.
