So, I bravely ventured out into the wild world of the public, and stores, and happened upon T-Mobile. It was bright and early in the morning, on a normal work day, so the stores were empty minus the employees. That helped reduce my social anxiety a bit. This whole thing of venturing out into places where people congregate is a bit of a challenge for this guy who has holed up since March of '20. A month or so back, my dad had mentioned that he went to T-Mobile to look at replacing my mom's phone. No decision was made at the time regarding that, but he did get his SIM replaced. He indicated that the T-Mobile scam blocker was better than the offering that Sprint had, at least that's how he felt about it. He said the process was quite painless. Go in, identify yourself, and ask to get a new T-Mobile SIM. A few clicks on the computer new SIM in hand, and your phone just works. New T-Mobile apps to go with the new carrier, and it deletes the old ones. Okay, sounds pretty harmless. At some point, they'll start degrading the Sprint towers as they incorporate those into T-Mobile's network. At some point after that, you'll be required to get a new SIM. It's not like they're going to continue to improve or add more Sprint towers. I'm here, I might as well do it. So, that's what I did. Mind you, this felt a bit weird. Over a decade ago, I used to work for T-Mobile. I had a BlackBerry Pearl running on the Edge network for T-Mobile while I was also sporting my Treo 755p on Sprint on the SERO plan. It wasn't long lived for me. I landed a job in my field of study that offered stable hours, and better pay. T-Mobile was quick to end my employee discount and I terminated my line of service. But here I was, back in the place I used to work, ready to rejoin team magenta. After providing my number and verifying that I'm authorized on my dad's account we were off. A few clicks on their computer, and a new SIM card was brought to the counter. "Do you have everything backed up to Google?" I'm positive of it. I don't store anything on my SIM. I learned that from when I worked here years ago. Pop out the Sprint SIM, put in the T-Mobile SIM. A moment where the phone goes... "What just happened here?" and then... Please reboot your phone. Reboot #1, and the Sprint splash logo is gone, immediately replaced by T-Mobile, as well as their iconic jingle. It then proceeds to complete the provisioning process and requests one more reboot. As you wish... 2nd reboot, and I'm back online. My phone seamlessly removed Sprint's visual voicemail app, and call screener app. In their place, T-Mobile's visual voicemail app, and Scam Scanner app. Run through the first time setup, and both are now enabled. They're even smart enough to migrate saved voicemails you had on your Sprint app, to the new T-Mobile app. Coincidence or not? My Note 20 Ultra had been sitting on the Feb security update, and hadn't seen anything since then. I'd been checking daily. After getting my new SIM, I checked again, and I'm now on the May update. The world may never know... Network speeds appear the same as they were before. Seamless and painless. Thanks for all the fun years, Sprint. Hello T-Mobile.
