  1. Have you tried going into Settings, General, About to install the OTA Carrier Sprint 41.1 update? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  3. We missed out on the sandwich and a potential brawl lol! [emoji1787] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. https://www.pcmag.com/news/t-mobile-busts-gigabit-barrier-with-mid-band-new-york-city-5g This definitely validates the tweet that PhillipJames89 shared yesterday! [emoji41][emoji1430] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. Of course, that only benefits people who can access mmWave... which has an 800 foot radius off of the cell site and poor building penetration. In fact: Verizon is having to go with the "Magic Box" approach for mmWave here. How about that... Hmmm, I was looking to invest in Pivotal Commware last week as I had saw it in a market mover report last week. Thanks for sharing, this just might be another 5G stock to keep an eye on going into this summer. [emoji1417] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. https://www.imore.com/apple-vs-qualcomm-what-happened-who-won-and-what-comes-next Long article but perfectly explains the legal battle that took place between Apple vs. Qualcomm. For the iPhone 7,8,10 models, Apple split the modem suppliers 50-50 as Intel supplied all AT&T/T-Mobile/GSM devices and Qualcomm supplied all Verizon/Sprint/CDMA models. Once things fell through in 2017, Apple went exclusively with Intel for the 10s series with their new XMM 7560 modem that had mixed results as reception greatly lagged behind the Android devices with Qualcomm modems. This past fall, the iPhone 11 lineup still went with Intel as the settlement had happened too late for Qualcomm to meet the iPhone production timeline. For myself, I enjoy my iPhone 11 Max Pro but was definitely expecting much better cell reception than my iPhone 8 Plus and that’s not the case. Hence, I will most likely upgrade to the iPhone 12 Pro Max by the end of this year. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. Apple may have bought out Intel’s wireless division with the goal of building their own modems but Qualcomm is still the undisputed king. Apple and Samsung know it to be true as they both prefer to use Qualcomm over their in house or other modems. Therefore, I hope Apple scratches their plans to make a modem and just sticks with Qualcomm. Apple can most certainly afford to do biz with Qualcomm and should not go cheap when asking $1k+ for a flagship device. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I give Intel credit for doing a decent job with the latest XMM 7660 Advanced LTE modem found in the iPhone 11 lineup. However, the signal strength is not much of an improvement over my iPhone 8 Plus that had the Qualcomm x16 modem. Bottom line, it is hard to compete with the Apple iPhone when it has a Qualcomm modem in it as the Snapdragon 865 still cannot touch the A13 Bionic. The iPhone 12 with 5G will be a big improvement but I argue that the return to Qualcomm will be just as big. In the video below, the S20 Ultra barely edges out the 11 Pro Max and it makes me wonder if things would be different if it had the Qualcomm modem that is in the Note 10+.

  9. https://www.t-mobile.com/news/tmobile-intel-nasa-launch-5g-open-innovation-lab Some good things should come out of this 5G Open Innovation Lab. Definitely excited to see New T-Mobile trying to position itself for success and reinforce the brand. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. Amen to that! [emoji1431] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. PhillipJames89, thanks for sharing! New T-Mobile will be a force to be reckoned with if they can keep up this progress as it will allow them the opportunity to keep deploying the 2.5 GHz everywhere without having to worry about churn. I was worried about simple minded people seeing Verizon and AT&T MMWave in action, resulting in them ditching T-Mobile for faster 5G. Hopefully, people give Ray and Saw some time to keep fine tuning the network. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. https://www.fiercewireless.com/operators/ex-sprint-cto-saw-s-new-job-finding-cool-ways-to-use-t-mobile-s-5g Cool write up in regards to Saw’s new role with New T-Mobile. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. Yeah, not sure how I missed it but that’s more like it! [emoji100][emoji390] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. I figured New T-Mobile was sandbagging us with the 600 mbps download estimation. Don’t get me wrong, that’s plenty of speed as most fiber optic WiFi speeds are between 200-500 mbps. Just thought N41 could potentially average 800+ mbps download with full 5G capacity. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. Any idea if N41 will ever be able to top 600 mbps download a year from now or when New T-Mobile finishes their buildout? Only asking as I have come close to topping 300 mbps download on my former iPhone 8 Plus and current iPhone 11 Pro Max with B41. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
