    Very familiar with Android signal apps, including SignalCheck Pro. You are only going to see whatever tower you are on at a given point, and only from the carrier your SIM card is designated for....

    How do you know what you are running on? Details please for everybody's benefit. Not everybody is as sophisticated as some here, nor do they have have the latest phones that are more capable.

    If you are going to eventually port your number to AT&T Prepaid, you will loose the TF balances anyway unless quickly reactivating with a new number. How did you find out you could not port to AT&T...

    Have not seen the SD card as the default storage location for the contacts list. My present phone does not have an SD card, so Export goes to the Downloads folder in internal storage. You can...

    If the phone will not run at all, you can't get the contacts file off to use on another phone. It is pretty much mandatory to use a Google account for archiving the contacts list. If you wanted to...

    Kind of figured it might take some calling. Can also ask what services they do. The nearest other stores are 40 miles away. It's pathetic how lame the local Authorized Retailer is, but not unusual...

    AT&T Corporate stores?

    Seems they removed the ability on the AT&T store finder to tell if a store is Corporate or Authorized Retailer. At one time you could tell if it had a "Shop this store" button, and also "Order online...

    Upgrading will also get you HD Voice and Visual Voicemail. Friend of mine lost HD Voice (VoLTE) on Verizon and the call quality was terrible. Huge difference when it was restored.

    T-Mobile has licenses for B12 and B71 in much of NorCal but not using it presently. What are Sprint users going to roam on, which is the subject of this thread? I don't think relying on USC is a good...

    There is a difference in having licensed spectrum, and actually using it. T-Mobile has licenses for B12 and B71 in NorCal, but uses very little of it. Makes their coverage pretty bad in many of the...

    What is this "full portfolio of spectrum" Verizon can use? They sure don't seem to have much in my area for 4G. The signal speed has been going down the last couple of years. Not that TMobile has be...

    Are you looking at the LTE bands from the same location at the same time compared to your Sister's phone? Frequencies available seem to depend on the tower. I get B66, B13, B5. B5 seems to come from...

    USC mostly only covers the US 101 corridor above Santa Rosa and some areas in the far northeast. It is going to be spotty on US 101 no matter which carrier. Sprint coverage may be as good as TMO in...
  14. US Cellular in my wider area (near Sacramento)...

    US Cellular in my wider area (near Sacramento) does not have any native coverage, so they would not be a roaming partner. Not sure which carrier they are using for a roaming partner. Assumed it would...

    It was not clear in the beginning that this was a TW branded phone. Should not have needed a TF SIM card to activate. The automated activation system used to ask you if you wanted to re-brand to TF.
  16. Yep, you should not have put that TF SIM card in...

    Yep, you should not have put that TF SIM card in any other phone to activate. The factory supplied SIM is tied to the phone's IMEI. Does the TW phone still work with it's own SIM card, or was it not...

    I stand corrected. You do need data on to see the LTE symbol. VoLTE doesn't care.

    T-Mobile = good features, but often poor signal. AT&T = often good signal, but poor features. Verizon = usually good signal, has HD Voice for everybody.

    Yep, the iPhone X and 11 for B71. Pretty much all models of TMO branded phones have it. I checked with the TMO store, and they said there was no B12 or B71 being used here. They really need the...

    No, Sprint customers will not be actually T-Mobile customers until the infrastructure, accounting, etc. changes have been made. More like the Sprint division of T-Mobile until then. They were talking...

    I only saw that a CPUC lawyer advised that the merger be passed, not that it had actually done so. There is also the Tunney Act court review that seems to have dropped out of sight over a month ago.

    Yes, the libraries are closed anyplace with a lock down. Some Internet would be available, but not much help with an activation, unless some other device (phone, tablet, laptop) could be used. A...

    Sure you can just call the main CS number for adding airtime. A number of years ago that was the only way.

    Everything in California is different, complicated, and often expensive. I don't remember a login for the Lifeline administrator back when dealing with renewal. Got a letter stating I would have to...
