  1. Apart from having phone specific cards, sprint also has some "universal" cards. I would suggest going to the store and ask the reps to set you up. When I had to get my old Essential PH1 activated they tried every card in the store before just pulling one out of a display phone.
  2. Bummer. If they were rootable and got updated past oreo I would probably still be using my Key2. Pour one out...
  3. Good to know it's not just this device (or t-mobile). Based on what I found on the droid wiki, this can be expected behavior on some aosp roms.
  4. This is incorrect. I am also on T-mob and posted my findings in the network compatibility thread.
  5. I ended up buying sequestris' pro 1 who reported the trouble on T-Mobile. I was able to get it running by manually adding the APN posted on T-mobile's site. So far I have only seen it attach to bands 2 and 4, and the signal meter on the status bar says "4G" instead of "LTE." From what i can find online it could be using the old 4G service since bands 2 and 4 are also used for that, or it could be the rom simply calling LTE 4G which is still technically correct (apparently some asop based roms do this). I can't say for certain based on speed since the two areas I've had the phone in didn't get great reception on both the pro1 and my pixel 3. SMS and MMS are working as intended as are calls. Wifi calling shows up in settings when you search, but selecting the option from search results takes you to the mobile data settings where the wifi calling option is notably absent. For others who have successfully activated their phone in the US, does your status bar say 4G or LTE?
  6. Just a fun FYI about sprint: they have different sim cards for different phones. Even if the sim size is the same you may not be able to simply swap the card into a new device, so using a mule device might not be an option. Source: former sprint customer.
  7. Yesterday I had sent a support inquiry to Fxtec asking about transfer of warranty. Here is their response: Thanks for your message. Yes, the warranty would still be valid if you buy the device from someone else. Feel free to let us know if there's anything else we can help you with. Kind regards, F(x)tec Support
  8. Does anyone know if the warranty transfers if you purchase the phone second hand (assuming there is warranty left)? EDIT: Here is Fxtec support's response: Thanks for your message. Yes, the warranty would still be valid if you buy the device from someone else. Feel free to let us know if there's anything else we can help you with. Kind regards, F(x)tec Support
  9. If you have a chance could you switch the Bluetooth profile to AAC in developer options and try connecting to the Sonys again? The specs on Sonys website say they support that codec and I'm curious to see if the issue is limited to aptx.
  10. Were you able to switch codecs to something else like AAC?
  11. Gotcha. Assuming you're in the US: what carrier are you using it on and how is the LTE signal so far?
  12. No LTE at all? You should get some kind of coverage, out of all of T-mobile's LTE bands the pro1 supports 2, 4, 5, and 12. The only one's it's missing are 66 and 71. 71 is the new-ish wide coverage band that was deployed in the last couple years that TM has been using to expand rural coverage; 66 is the super high freq band that has crap wall penetration. To put it in perspective, the S8+ also was missing band 71 but still had full LTE service.
  13. The order numbers are most likely non-sequential. I think that was called out elsewhere in the forum.
