  1. If they trade it'll be AT&T most likely since they own the B block and Bluegrass has C block.
  2. That'll be interesting to watch. I don't think they own much of their own spectrum, they do have 5x5 B12 and 5x5 B2 in my area. Bluegrass is a huge part of the Verizon network in KY via Verizon's LTEiRA program.
  3. Has anyone seen any of the former Sprint stores close down? Around here it seems that every single Sprint store was kept open and converted to T-Mobile no matter how close it was to an existing T-Mobile store. I've recently noticed several of the converted stores have gotten new permanent signage replacing the temporary banner signs from Day 1 conversion.
  4. For VoLTE to work on AT&T the device almost has to be an AT&T branded version for it to be whitelisted. For some reason they don't allow factory unlocked or other provider unlocked phones to use VoLTE and some other network features. I dont know what their reasoning is for that.
  5. I wonder if T-Mobile will continue to offer the CellSpot? We have both a MB and CellSpot in our office building, its the only way we get any signal. For some reason our building's exterior walls are 10-12 inches of concrete and rebar (I found out the hard way when we installed some new outdoor cameras recently).
  6. I finally got some decent pictures of the new style equipment shelter AT&T is using. They're been using this around here for the last couple of years on new sites. For reference here is what the older shacks looked like. Theres a ton of these out there, Verizon and Nextel also used shacks similar to these. Here's the new shack:
  7. Here's a before and after look at a recently upgraded T-Mobile site here. I'm not sure what the difference in the ground equipment is, but all of the upgraded sites around here are getting new ground equipment as well as adding antennas. Most of my area has already been completed with adding N71, so hopefully this makes the N41 overlay go much faster. I've also noticed sites with 2 eNB IDs are getting consolidated to a single eNB ID for LTE on 2/4(66)/12/71 even on 4, 5, and 6 sector sites with the upgrades. Before: After:
  8. Went from absolutely no service to this now in Milan Indiana. Its about the only place I travel to for my job that had no service at all with AT&T. Glad to see expansion is still full steam ahead. Sent from my SM-G988U using Tapatalk
  9. Interesting, it works on my T-Mobile Samsung devices (S20 and Tab S6) and on my AT&T S20 Ultra, though on the AT&T phone I have to reboot with the SIM out to get into that menu. With the SIM in it just says this: Sent from my SM-G988U using Tapatalk
  10. Yoy can just hit the home button to get back out.
  11. Yes, if it works it will open up as soon as you type the last #. *#0011# is the other code i use all the time.
  12. If it works on your phone the easiest way to tell is to go into *#2263# and tap on NR5G band preference, then see if NR B71 SA is listed as an option. If you only have NSA then SA hasn't been enabled on your phone. Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk
  13. Since that phone just launched it might have SA support out of the box.
  14. No issues with B2 here. Not sure if its 4x4 or 2x2 MIMO as my home site hasn't been modernized yet, its still 2,4,12 only for now. Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk
