Meh. And I've checked my area on two different ones. Both are so massively underreported as to be worthless.

In case it was missed my Point was that "in the sticks" could be based more on population density (even for that smaller town) than the distance From said people.

While at Boston earlier this week, during my failed attempt to purchase the s4 from incompetent 'reps' i did get to ask her this:

Is there the possibility of you selling me a few sim cards, and then me calling back at a later time providing you with the acct info and phone info(IMEI etc) to finish the activation process?

Answer - No that is not possible we dont just sell the sim cards they must be activated in store, we must complete the setup here to perform a few tests and make sure everything works okay.

So honestly i think youll encounter this same answer yourself, im hoping you're planning to go to a Mom-and-pop stealer in a BYOD market, there i see the possibility of you walking out the store with the sims, and have them expect to receive calls to complete the activation of the previously sold sim cards(to you) remotely, thats all ofcouse ONLY IF you find a 'rep' who wants to make the sale and is willing to work this out with you. Dont try to buy them just to buy them, as they'll be useless if people cant actually call back and have the rep add the IMEI into the system and complete the activation. Basically, tell the rep what youre trying to do, and hope he's willing to work with you/others. At the end of the day the change must be done on that POS computer.

Just a friendly heads up, i appreciate the fact you're tryna help out fellow members, as i had in mind when i inquired about purchasing sims in Boston, but you'd rather be a bit more on the safe side...gas isnt exactly cheap nowadays haha

Also some food for thought,
Cost of sim $10
Activation $15
Shipping ~$1 - $5
ETA of sim July 22-27

BYOD is expected to make its way to MANY paces in August, which is only a week later..

Default Att to tmobile services...

I have been doing a lot of research on what phones can be used from AT&T to T-Mobile service.

I have a pantech burst.. which i love. it's on att.. i keep hearing about the 1700/2100mhz band is needed for current hspa speeds since i'm sure my area isn't refarmed out yet.

I looked at the popule LG Optimus L9.. and that phone being sold by TMO... doesn't have the 1700/2100MHZ on UMTS either... does have the 2100 though. Just like the pantech burst.

My problem is that I'm finding alot of information stating my burst won't work unless it's been refarmed already. any knowledge of this stuff out there?

The Optimus L9 has AWS 1700/2100 AND the separate 2100 band.

The burst can work with our LTE but can only get refarmed HSPA but I dont think theres any refarmed area that doesnt have LTE because they started installing the panels around the same time

Default Merger spectrum

Will the merger with T-mo use t-mo's hspa+? or will it use 4g? I was planning on getting a google edition HTC One but it doesnt have the AWS band so no 1700mhz spectrum for it, so which spectrum will the merged tmobile and metro use?

The ones they've been using

1700/2100 AWS for LTE & HSPA and 1900 for HSPA in refarmed areas

Hmmm got some rumours for everybody
More BYOD markets near the end of the month probably after the 26th and spectrum combine very soon. Emailing Legere about some other technical stuff, not likely but will see if I can get any confirmation on that.

So all of my ninjas have confirmed that SIM cards and BYOD services will be available here in Michigan on Friday, but S4s will not be available. Personally, I am done waiting so I am considering buying a T-Mobile S4 from eBay and bringing it in for a SIM CARD. Everyone says they're the same model anyway and a brand new S4 is only $560 tax-free on eBay, cheaper than Metro after taxes and insurance is only $82 for 2 years. My question is, and I know it's been addressed before but I can't find it, will there be any problem with them pairing the S4 to the SIM since the S4 is not in the BYOD compatibility list from Metro's website?

GSM speeds are fast in Atlanta. I have a galaxy s2 skyrocket on metropcs BYOD program. I think I'm being throttled so maybe speeds are faster.

It says "MetroPCS is offering its ‘all-in’ unlimited data, talk and text service – taxes and regulatory fees included – online and at authorized dealer stores in its existing 15 markets, as well as the additional below operating markets announced today. The company is also offering its “Bring Your Own Phone” program to all of its customers, providing them even more choice and great value."

Maybe I'm reading it wrong, but it seems that those cities will now have MetroPCS coverage and they are rolling out BYOD to all of their customers?

Metro hardly ever says publicly they made a mistake or there's a problem. I cut and pasted the above part from their press release and asked them in the public area of their Faceplant. The simply referred me to the BYOD city List.

So, the answer to your question is apparently the above is not correct the way it is worded.

Eedeeits.

Detroit does start tomorrow. All Corp employees have confirmed it. Apparently, they were training this morning. Kind of last minute. There are going to be so many screw ups this weekend. Anyway, for those who already have BYOD in their markets and have used it(or those familiar with the process), when I walk into the corp. store with my phone, how much total will I be spending? I've bought quite a few cases and accessories to accompany the S4 and have $35 left in the phone budget for this month. One of the employees said she didn't have the specifics yet, but that the card should be $5-15. All I have to do is buy the card and the rest is free?

So the new markets will have BYOP but what else are they going to sell? With no Metro towers around I'm guessing these new stores will just have the GS4, the F3, and the Lumia to choose from maybe a feature phone or 2. If its a big corporate store its gonna look a little empty. You could fit all those phones on a single display.
