  1. Sure, but it didn't matter how Sprint's 800 MHz was down there, since we have 1900 MHz LTE on the DAS. I'd rather my T-Mobile iPhone used the Sprint Legacy 1900 MHz LTE signal that's available down there than the 600 MHz 5G/LTE macro network, which is congested as we share it with a major transit hub in the area. My phone will hop over to the Sprint signal when it loses the T-Mobile signal entirely, but it's a hard transition to "Roaming," not seamless like the Sprint "keep" sites are around here.
  2. Yeah, we're definitely getting LTE and 5G on 600MHz down in the depths of the building now, but it's slow and congested. I'd much rather have LTE on PCS, even if there's no 5G on the DAS!
  3. Thanks, I might do that. I want to talk to the folks who run the DAS before I engage an external vendor - they're my colleagues and I don't want to step on their toes! As far as I know, they haven't had any communications from T-Mobile on changes.
  4. Has anyone heard word of how T-Mobile is approaching Sprint's in-building DAS systems? We've got an older system at work that has the "big three" carriers from the early-2010s on it... so AT&T, Verizon and Sprint. 😜 I've been back to the office a couple of times and I eventually roam onto it when I'm in the bowels of the building, but my T-Mobile iPhone 12 Pro prefers the outdoor macro network, so I assume that they haven't added 312-250 yet. It's PCS-only for Sprint as far as I can tell.
  5. DIGITS is a mess of a product family. There are a few different "flavors," as you said: The DIGITS App and Website are free and allow anyone to access their phone/text via secondary device(s). The backend of this is also what enables Apple devices like iPads and watches to receive texts and phone calls from a primary device. (I found out through trial and error that you have to have DIGITS enabled on your line, or this just won't work.) The DIGITS Wearable product is a secondary data-only line that is "paired" to a primary line (see screenshot attached for what mine looks like o
  6. Oh, this is really terrible. I had been keeping an eye on the old DCRA site and just searching for T-Mobile... up until the end of 2020 all I had seen were permits to add 2.5GHz antennas to existing sites, which match up with what I had been able to observe in my limited travels around the city.
  7. What is DCRA's new system? I had been looking at this site but it stopped working at the end of 2020. https://eservices.dcra.dc.gov/DCRADataConnect/Home/Permits#
  8. That's a good question... there's no mention of needing to change plans for this, I would assume Sprint-billed folks are eligible with the same 24 month credits that T-Mobile users are.
  9. Yup, these are crazy deals that I have to assume they offer on quarters where they want to inflate subscriber numbers... but I won't complain. I've got 8 Magenta Max lines for less than the price of 2 right now - my parents and sister all have free lines, and I've reserved 3 for my niece, nephew and mother in law if they want it.
  10. This is funny, I just signed up for TVision Live to evaluate it as a Sling TV replacement. Everything worked OK, but the Android TV wasn't the most intuitive. I guess I'll be punted to YouTubeTV now.
  11. I asked them that question today on Twitter, and I was told the opposite.
  12. They'll honor hookup, free line promos from after 6/2/2019 and some others, according to an employee on reddit. I'm on Magenta Plus right now with 7 lines (2 paid, 5 free) and a $15 discount match, bringing my total plan cost to $125. If I am understanding it correctly, I can switch to Max for no additional cost. Guess I'll find out on Wednesday. I
