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.

No LTE at all. I'm in the burbs here, but tons of towers and all of our other phones (Nexus 5, ZTE Max Pro, Samsung 4S, LG G4, and an anceint flip phone) all get GTE. It's not the area; it's the phone :(

This will be a deal breaker for me if there is something about the phone that makes it not work on T-Mobile where I'm located.  It would be great if you could run LTE Discovery (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.simplyadvanced.ltediscovery&hl=en_US) and see which bands it is getting (or isn't getting), vs your other phones, and whether that changes being inside vs outside.

This was inside, outside, in a store, by my house, sitting by a window...
If a flip phone that isn't even smart can get LTE...

However, it would be valuable information for others if you have time to test 🙂.

I don't have a phone handy to test if this is in the same screen as what @EskeRahn has pointed to, but picking (or adding) the right APN may be needed for T-Mobile to work properly.  Here is the info on it though:  https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-2090

And regarding wifi calling, this looks like a possible solution. I've never used it.  I've only used other apps that they've mentioned (WhatsApp, Viber, etc.) where you need the other person to have the same app, or you have to pay for calls to regular phone numbers.  But this solution appears to offer calling to regular numbers for free, yet over wifi.  I guess the only downside is in it being a different number than your normal number.

https://www.talkatone.com/free-wifi-calling-app/android/

Google Voice has a similar option, where you can set it to prefer mobile data/wifi instead of regular cellular for the connection.  That might offer better integration with your normal cell number than talkatone (regarding forwarding calls/texts/voicemails between them).  I don't know.

What I love about Google Voice is that it integrates with gmail, so texts to the GV number show up in gmail as emails and you can reply to them in gmail.  This allows you to easily text from a computer instead of having to type on the phone (really beneficial for phones without physical keyboards, but also faster than typing on a physical keyboard phone).

I've got LTE with freedompop (AT&T MVNO).  I did have to add APN; there were only 2 listed already, both labeled cingular.

@Erik did the 3rd batch arrive in the warehouse?

 

People should receive stock assigned emails today, then right? Did anybody already get theirs?

Nothing yet but I hope I made it into the 3rd batch since they said there will be a lot more QWERTZ devices this time.

 For Europe, that would be surprising since the second batch was still not there yesterday.

I believe that dreamflasher was meaning Hong Kong logistics hub. Erik said last week that people in 3rd batch should receive stock assignment mails early this week when the phones are at the warehouse in Hong Kong. Phones were in transit last week. I believe that we get mails soon 😉.

 F(x)tec Costumer service told me yesterday (10.12.19) that 3rd batch stock assigned emails  will be send in 5-7 days (15-17.12.2019)

They told me early next week. A week ago. So things don't add up :(.

I guess asking for spontaneous updates when delays happen does not help. Let's do this instead.

Dear F(x)tec, please never inform us of delays when they occur. We greatly appreciate being left in the dark until someone starts a rumor about a potential delay and we don't get confirmation for days, after which it is all like the new ETA was what was announced all along.

Yes Erik had mentioned in his latest update that the stock assignment for the 3rd batch would happen early this week (so at the latest today).

It seems to me that it is time for another update by Erik or fx tec officials to explain this latest change of schedule.

I believe that it is just a small delay this time. It happens. People should soon receive tracking numbers from 2nd batch ja stock assignment mails from 3rd batch.

As far as I know it's on the move, we just haven't sent the stock assignment emails yet. I am checking with Liangchen who is China right now to see if there's a change.

Yes, the deadline of "early next week" has been elapsed as currently it is the middle of this week.
I hope we will have some updates soon.
