    I have one Xfinity Mobile cellular plan that I use as my secondary plan on an XS Max, with the T-Mobile line being primary.

    The Xfinity Mobile line is only about 75 cents/month most of the time,...

    That's a surprisingly good device. I got one when they first came out, and it is still my Android play device.

    I'm fully immersed in the Apple ecosystem, but I like to know how to work Android,...

    Okay. I'll brag a little bit. :-)

    I'm on the 55+ plan, plus an Apple Watch.

    So 70.00/month flat includes two cellular plans, plus a Watch 4 linked to my Primary.

    But when I switched to...

    Yup. :-)

    I've had my main cellular plan on eSIM for three weeks now.

    I started a live conversation in the T-Mobile support site and just asked politely whether somebody had time for a SIM...
  5. T-Mobile LG V30 Unlocked on AT&T 4G LTE

    I just want this documented somewhere.

    If you have a T-Mobile LG-V30 that you've unlocked and you are trying to use it on AT&T, you will not have 4G LTE.

    The APN won't update by itself, and the...

    The only tricky thing I have seen T-Mobile do so far is the automatic inclusion of a SIM kit, together with a mandatory call to customer service to get an otherwise perfectly good device up and...

    I can understand why iOS will slow down a device with a waning battery.

    But iOS should warn you about it so that you can make an intelligent decision about what to do.

    You know, it really doesn't matter. There's no gigabit LTE on the Qualcomm modem, either. It's switched off so that the Intel versions are not perceived as inferior.

    The iPhone X has LTE-A but...

    I'd love to argue with you more but you're probably right.

    The holes in coverage that we assumed would be covered by Band 71 (because of T-Mobile statements) are not holes that affect me.

    It's not beyond all conjecture that I would be out in the...

    Trying to make Apple pay for chips they're not even using, in other words. I understand Apple's position, but I believe they could still have done better.

    The iPhones with Qualcomm chips have...

    Is it? :-)

    If they weren't busy fighting with their suppliers, they could have given us all Qualcomm chips. They could have done it with the Qualcomm chips. But half their sets had to be Intel.

    What do you want to know? It's great. :-)

    I know that the V30's radio is better than the iPhone 7 Plus (Intel), iPhone SE (Qualcomm), and iPhone 8 Plus (Qualcomm). The V30 could make a call in...
  15. Oh, hell, yes. :-) The coverage is much...

    Oh, hell, yes. :-)

    The coverage is much better than I expected, and the human help seems to actually care about what they are doing.

    Data speeds seem a little better than AT&T. HD Voice works...

    Culpeper's a great small town but close enough to metropolitan areas that it's not hopeless. Lots of sights, close to the Shenandoah, history all over, and about a half dozen really good restaurants.

    I'm a recent refugee from AT&T, by the way. I've only had T-Mobile for a short while, and the LG V30 is my first non-iPhone in ages.

    I was hoping to see it in "Central Virginia," where they said they would roll it out to cover some holes in the more rural sort of south-west-central parts of the state.

    Guess it'll be a while,...

    Do we know if the map is kept up to date?

    I don't see 600 MHz in places where T-Mobile says it is turned on. I suppose since nobody really uses it yet, there's no need to show it.
  21. In the past, I might have challenged you about...

    In the past, I might have challenged you about that. :-)

    My LG V30 in the same place at the same time can make calls and transmit data, while an iPhone 7 Plus (Intel) and an iPhone SE (Qualcomm)...

    Band 12 made T-Mobile a major player. :-) Until Band 12, I would not have even considered T-Mobile. They just didn't have the coverage without it.

    Funny thing is....Band 12 seems to have slower...

    Nope.

    No gigabit LTE at all, and no Band 71.

    They say they didn't have time, what with the fight with Qualcomm making them go Intel for 50% of their devices.
  24. Band 12 lock, by the way, improves signal...

    Band 12 lock, by the way, improves signal strength in many locations but has a slower data speed than lower signal strength Band 2 and Band 4.

    For whatever that's worth to anybody. :-)
  25. Has anybody with an LG V30 encountered any...

    Has anybody with an LG V30 encountered any instances of Band 71 in use?

    Because the LG V30 service mode allows you to lock bands, I have experimented with 2, 4, 12 and 71.

    71 is the only one I...
