    Here in the Columbus Ohio market, we're slowly getting n41 rolled out to us.  I was watching a tower that has the antennas on it, and yesterday I was able to connect to n41.  I had B66 @ 20 MHz, and n41 @ 60 MHz.  Pulled down 360 Mb/s.  This was a drive-by, I didn't stop, and didn't try to force SA (I swapped my sim last week for the TNX.) I know there are a couple other towers with n41 active, and I've spotted at least 1 other with the antennas.  I'm also suspecting a couple towers that haven't gotten B71 to get a gull overhaul with n41, just due to their location.

    Overall, I'd say that I get NR about 75% of the places I go, maybe more.

    Yeh I was in Columbus last month picking up 5G in Reynoldsburg/Pickerington and Westerville

    Try setting your network mode from Automatic to LTE/CDMA.  This even fixed my S10, non 5G issues I commented on earlier in the thread.


    Discussion there.

    So the internet went out in my area and has been out all day. I been using my Note 20 Ultra as a hot spot for my Macbook and IPTV. 
    My speeds start to decrease as I believe Sprint/Tmobile is throttling me. I play around with my hotspot settings and come across an option to change the Band to 5Ghz. The moment I change it, my 5G reception comes back. WTF?
    Somehow the software update I guess changed that setting. 
    All is well now.

    This helps explain why the merging of Sprint and T-Mobile networks is taking so long. emoji2375.png

    Maybe a dumb question 
    I upgraded to the Note 20 Ultra assuming that the antennas would be tmobile. The phone still shows "Sprint by Tmobile". 
    In the article it references million of Sprint customers needing to shift to T-Mobile 5G. Is the Note 20 Ultra future proof or am I still technically on Sprint's dying network and need to switch to a more compatible device in the near future?

    Yeah I just discovered it...and they've lost their damn minds.

    Pay $600 now, $30/month for the new note...plus send back the note 10+ that I currently have.

    Not once, but twice..because me and wife both have note 10+.


    So...$1200 up front, send back the phones we've spent $900 in the last 12 months, and "finance" another phone for 18 months/24 months whatever.


    Nah..I'll pass. Oh..and I found out just now that samsung for life apparently is gone. Nice news to get when I'm thinking we've been a part of it ...

    Yeh Sprint/Tmobile has be beyond pissed right now.
    I have also been on the Galaxy Forever Plan 
    Very poor taste to yank this from us without even notifying us plus their customer service is clearly not on the same page as it still shows the Galaxy Forever Plan on their website here https://www.sprint.com/en/support/solutions/services/faqs-about-galaxy-forever.html
    While they are saying this 


    Samsung directly definitely has the better trade in deal. Now thinking about paying the remaining $625 I owe on my lease to Sprint and then trading in my Note 10+ to Samsung
