Today several tech news sites announced that T-Mobile marked the rollout of its “standalone” 5G network. This is apparently some change to the 5G network so that it no longer “piggybacks” off the company’s 4G LTE network. The articles all mention that TMO will be working with OnePlus, Qualcomm, and Samsung “to make sure compatible devices can access the standalone 5G network after a software update.” These companies are, however, not the only providers of 5G phones that TMO is currently selling. Should all 5G capable phones TMO is currently selling work with the standalone 5G network? (asking as a TMO customer who just bought an LG V60 5G and doesn’t want to be stuck with a phone that I’ll have to dump in a year)
