    Verizon tends to use band 4/66 as its capacity filler and prioritizes that band for connection, data and CA. I do get your point though, in variable terrain it isn't great.

    Band 5 is a bit common...

    In general, Android support is dependant on OEM and isn't consistent. The OEM has to implement carrier support in the OS. So in order for Samsung to support WiFi calling, it would have to implement...

    Given that Verizon is being loaned a good chunk of spectrum from DISH for 60 days, his experience using the phone as a hotspot might be skewed.

    AT&T might have gotten a lot of bandwidth, but most of that is AWS-4 and that isn't really usable on other AWS (band 4 or band 66) devices. Years ago, Dish had to convince the 3GPP to designate a...

    They enhanced Sprint's roaming agreement, so likely Sprint customers will see improvements in areas using compatible devices with B71. They didn't mention 5G, of which only the Samsung Galaxy S20...

    Current SIM kits from other retail outlets will probably be the VoIP version. Easy way to tell is by the SIM card number: if it doesn't start with 8901410, it will be VoIP voice.

    The yearly plans have been "beta" for a couple years. The beta label isn't related to Premium Voice.

    US Cellular operates in that area, so that could explain Sprint's partner coverage. Sprint [currently] can roam on USCC's LTE and CDMA network.

    Considering several MVPDs are dropping regional sports networks, this is a very good thing to grab while it's free.

    MVNOs may not get all of the same features as carrier-branded plans do.

    Total Wireless, as an example of a VZW MVNO, does not get WiFi Calling even on Verizon-supported devices.

    Agreed. That is why they will have trouble with getting 5G really active in some rural areas, because they didn't plan enough for LTE anchor bands, being mid-band AWS or PCS.
