(and if customer service quality remains at/near the level Ting is at now, I'm not going anywhere)

I share that concern. Crossing my fingers that, if customer service quality drops, it won't be until: T-Mobile is good enough in my parents' area to switch from Sprint's network to theirs (a month ago it very much wasn't), so I can just jump to Mint for them.

So, Dish now owns 's mobile arm. Wonder how quickly they'll push Sprint and VZW customers over to the T-Mobile side.of the house to take advantage of their super low wholesale rates there.

Hey , are new customers allowed to show up at a legacy T-Mobile store, purchase e.g. Unlimited Premium, and walk out with a phone running on the Sprint (CDMA/LTE) network?

Why do you know?

Neither of us can test your assertion, as last I checked we're both L-Sprint customers. We obviously are reading the exact same text in opposite ways. Nothing more to state here. Good night.

Source on the January date? Or are you correlating the VoLTE cutoff date for L-TMo with something on the L-Sprint side?

That's in addition to the "alternate plans" URL I replied to you with, which anyone can hit. Check the timestamp on my screenshot. I'm not the one making crap up.

If you have an existing Sprint account, a cookie gets set that allows you into the entire Sprint site. Phone selection appears to be limited to devices that can work on both networks, but existing Basic/Premium/etc. plans are available.

Additionally, T-Mobile will let you add new lines of service, even be a new customer, on the Sprint network, with the existing Sprint plans. You just have to go to a store or call to sign up. Check yourself before you wreck yourself.

Whatever tower climbs are necessary to get n2 working will also add n66 equipment of course, but T-Mobile's AWS-3 holdings are narrow enough IIRC (5x5) that you want to shove LTE there rather than try to add NR (so NR would be in Band 4 frequencies).

Two 5x5 slices of LTE below 2500 MHz...and a single 1x Advanced channel...isn't much, so I wouldn't expect this until within six months of the network going away entirely. But that probably puts us at mid/late summer 2022. Expect 10x10 n2, with no DSS on TMo's neverwork ever 2/2

5G prediction: Band 2 will be T-Mobile's third six-6 5G band. They'll start rolling n2 out as soon as they're able to clear Sprint out of the entire band, which will be before Sprint's network goes away entirely; CDMA will become SMR-only, with LTE in PCS-G + SMR + B41. 1/2

If I were VZW, given that they'll be doing DSS for 5G, I'd be working on a version of their home LTE equipment that can run on sub-6 5G. When it's not much more expensive than current CPE, silently deploy it to new customers. Keep marketing it as LTE though to manage expectations

At which point you end up compounding BC concerns for folks using positional params.
