    No more NEW Sprint Customers after Aug 2nd

    https://www.cnet.com/news/t-mobile-w...s-coming-soon/


    T-Mobile CEO Mike Sievert told CNET that Sprint will no longer be accepting new customers after Aug. 2. He adds, however, that while Sprint-branded stores will be going away, the company isn't "sunsetting the brand."

    “The Internet wasn’t meant to be metered in bits and bytes, so it’s insane that wireless companies are still making you buy it this way. The rate plan is dead — it’s a fossil from a time when wireless was metered by every call or text.” John Legere 1/5/2017

    Does that basically mean no activates on the sprint network? So you have to activate will TMO?

    To be honest I don’t know?

    I should of said “new customers,” instead of new activations .

    I’ll edit the title.

    If TM isn't sunsetting the Sprint what is their plan for the Sprint name? Prepaid only & get rid (merge with) of TM prepaid?

    I wonder if it's going to be for certain areas other than wireless—Sprint has an extensive fiber network and the name could live on in that area and B2B products: https://www.sprint.net

    Verizon seems to have kept the MCI name around in a similar way (a lot of the fiber in my area that is feeding new Verizon 5G towers (the small utility poles with a panel or two on them) has MCI markers and they look rather recent—not like the Ameritech- or SBC-branded boxes that AT&T has mostly left as-is.

    This would be my guess, business-oriented non-wireless solutions.

    I don't expect Sprint branding for prepaid or anything like that, since T-Mobile already has that with Metro.

    Not sure how this will affect Sprint customers, but T-Mobile is going to shut down non-VoLTE service in January 2021. I guess it depends on how long the Sprint network is kept in operation.

    Once TMO moves all sprint customers over it will be not long after that their 3G will be shutdown also.

    Will an iPhone 7 originally on Verizon work on T-Mobile after the end of the year?

    Yes. For iPhones, it doesn't matter where you got them, but anything 6 or newer (including SE) supports VoLTE. Sprint didn't support it on a network-level with older iPhones, but T-Mobile does. One quick way to check if you're using VoLTE is if your phone stays on LTE while in a call.

    Not sure when the T-Mobile network can handle the Sprint customers without overload. Lots of system integration work left to be done.

    last time I checked all that 2.5 GHz is being used for 5G. So not really going to help the 95% still using non 5G phones

    All I know is they better allow me to keep my three sprint hotspots and plans. Two Mifi 8000 (50gb) and the HTC Hub (100gb). I understand that the hub is 5g so that won’t ever be used on 5g but my LTE speeds on all three are exceptional. I had a long discussion with a Sprint chat rep.

    And what information did you glean from the Sprint CSR?
