  1. I spoke to support today and they told me the S10 isn't supported yet. Hopefully they support it soon.
  2. Looks like Altice doesn't take unlocked S10's yet. My device wouldn't activate at all. Interestingly there are no VoLTE settings but there are WiFi Calling options in the dialer menu. I'm pretty sure that Altice Mobile is an LTE only MVNO.
  3. My Altice Mobile SIM card just got delivered in NY. Hopefully I'll get it to Boston by Wednesday.
  4. I just ordered a SIM for Altice Mobile but since I'm based in Boston right now, it's getting delivered to my home in New York and then I'm getting it mailed to me so I won't be able to test it until next week most likely. The deal was just too good to pass up. Unlimited everything and no deprioritization for $20/month + taxes and fees along with access to both Sprint and AT&T's network sounds too good to be true.
  5. I would switch to Altice Mobile right now if it weren't for the fact that they don't cover most of the destinations that I travel to regularly and I'd probably lose RCS. Otherwise I'd switch in a heartbeat for unlimited access to both Sprint and AT&T's networks for $20/month since I am an Optimum customer. I wonder if they'll add more international destinations soon. Another thing worth noting is that they claim that they're not deprioritized compared to regular postpaid Sprint or AT&T customers like most MVNOs are because of the agreements they signed with both carriers.
  6. Altice lunched their MVNO and pricing seems very competitive. It also runs off of both Sprint and AT&T's networks. https://alticemobile.com/

  8. Samsung received over 1.3 Million preorders for the Note 10 and Note 10+ which is twice as many as they received for the Note 9. http://www.koreaherald.com/view.php?ud=20190820000614&ACE_SEARCH=1
  9. Sprint put a small cell about half of a block away from my house. It's a relay small cell with one carrier. Speeds are about 40-50Mbps and pings of about 70ms. It's in a spot where Band 41 would go down to about 1 or 2 bars without it.
  10. Despite the negativity surrounding the Note 10 on places like Reddit, it seems like a great upgrade for folks using the Note 8 or older. It has a better display in spite of the lower resolution, the same display size as the Note 8 in a smaller body, faster processor, better cameras, more base storage, more RAM, and a larger battery. The only thing I wish they kept was the headphone jack but the removal of it seemed kinda inevitable once the Galaxy Buds were released and actually became pretty popular. I also think it’s interesting that almost every reviewer on YouTube so far has said that they’re more interested in the smaller Note.
  11. July security patch is finally out for the US unlocked S10.
  12. The work with Altice has mainly been done in Long Island which needed it a lot more than NYC. There are parts of Long Island that had no signal at all that now have signal outdoors at the very least thanks to their collaboration with Sprint. I'm pretty sure that all this work was being done in anticipation of a launch of an MVNO from Altice so I'm just wondering when they plan on making that happen.
  13. I'm really excited from a network standpoint. All these bands combined will make for a monstrous network. From a pricing standpoint, I'm not as excited. I can already see my bill going up lol.
  14. They got the go ahead! https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/26/business/media/sprint-tmobile-merger.html?smtyp=cur&smid=tw-nytimes
