None of those phones were advertised as 5G ready.
I have the LG V30 and I knew it wasn't a 5G device.
That is absolutely not true.
Show me where the LG V30 was a 5G phone when it was sold.
600mhz was claimed to be 5g for the past two years untill sometime in 2019
if you have been following the roll out. Including by sales and support
agents. Pull the calls it's not my job to record the information. Google
it. Here is a recent discussion though:
Also I asked for people who have more information. Sorry but you just
demonstrated you clearly do not.
And from official Tmobile source not some tech article speculating it's "technically" 5G because it has band 71.
That's a support thread .
If you followed the 4g/LTE rollout , 5G is rolling out the same way with a couple of phones
600 MHz DD 71 LTE 4G Active/Building Out Spectrum purchased in early 2017, network launched in August 2017. Licenses cover 100% of the United States. n71 NR 5G Active/Building Out Primary band for 5G NR network. Commercially launched on December 2, 2019. Licenses cover 100% of the United States.
Hey cool new chart man. Exactly like I said. Recently in 2019 actually seems to be....December by that chart? They decided to segment the band. Aka making band 71 phones not 5g as they said and forcing upgrades. Just like I posted. Thanks for backing me up.
Thanks for reading more into it.
My guess is that the majority of people knew that 5G enabled phones wouldn't be released/sold until
the 5G network was turned on.
Hardly. T mobile sales and support phone agents also said this would be 5g.
The real truth is most people have 0 clue and never followed the roll out. (Making it very easy to pull this kind of baloney)
Then you have people like you outright trying to claim this never happened.
While posting charts as evidence ....that shows it happened exactly like I
said. Very strange.
You even strangely instantly hijacked my thread #1 with outright no this never happened. #2 with you comment placement. There is a forever stuck your last comment because you replied to yourself instead of editing your comment. (A 6 year forum vet)
Don't appreciate thread hijacking. Above Gramps asking for a specific source is the discussion ^
(I replied to his first request but he replied to himself forever making this last comment without this reply)
I didn't hijack the thread , I just responded to it and you don't agree with my posts.Get over it.
When I bought my LG V30 it was advertised as 4G/LTE not 5G. Tmobile isn't going to sell a
5G phone 2 years before the rollout.
No you actually are the only person agressively responding with incorrect information. The information you provided actually supports exactly what I said. You also keep responding after I specifically said you are not providing more information. I see you have been posting similar comments on other threads related to other people mention it band 71 600mhz was advertised to them as 5g. Such can be seen in the thread I linked. You also replied to yourself so you would forever have the last comment here if I did not reply to it. This is hijack a thread 101 friend. You also know it. Being on this forum for 6 years. Burry it act like it didn't happen. Act like you answered the question lol.
Band 71 was deployed by your own chart in 2017. Band 71 was then and is still now 5g. However now they decided to segment the band... exactly like I first posted.... exactly like your chart shows. They engineered a forced phone upgrade if you want 5g by segmenting the band. There was no reason to do this. They previously claimed phones sold in 2017,2018,2019 that had band 71 would have 5g in the future when it was deployed in your area. Now it's no....only these two new phones....because we decided to split the band (sometime 2019 that chart seems to be December). Exactly....as i first posted .
Whatever, live in your fantasy world.
Can't even us a common sense reply to you.
Et al: Tmobile isn't going to sell a 5G phone 2 years before 5G is released.
