I also kissed ass to them saying that i love t-mobile but i just wished i had service inside.
the rep transferred me to a lady named Donna, i kissed her ass too and got it shipped 1 day overnight express Lol

overall just be kind and kiss ass
None of mime are WiFi calling capable. I'll call again, but I've also heard from others that they don't five them out anymore. Is it LTE or HSPA?

1)Remember call in state that you have service near your window but you cannot be at a window every time to make a call
2) ask if you quality for a signal booster and when they say if you have any connected walls or shared walls something inbetween those lines state no
3)They're going to do some troubleshooting if you have edge in or 1bar of 4g or LTE TURN ON Airplane mode they're actually going to ping the device state on the mobile network (testing to see if you're a lier)

Tips: Kiss ass, complement things like i love t-mobile etc, be patient and have a nice happy voice, call using another phone NOT on t-mobile..

i hope this helps!

It supports EDGE/HSPA and t-mobile newly refarmed 1900pcs HSPA

its pretty future proof as HSPA will be here long. besides HSPA is what makes the calls not LTE
better to have some data and calls than no calls and data at all..
it also conserves battery life as the signal is strong and your device wont have to search for signals

You said to TURN ON airplane mode when i call them?

Sweet talking is the only way you can get free stuff usually.

I see you have a backup tmobile phone... Does it get the same reception in the house as your N5 does?

Yeah,, you have to be valuable to TMO to get this (ala multiple postpaid lines). The last case I saw here was months ago, and he went all the way to retention before they sent him a cel-fi. Regular CSR's may not have the option on their system.

WRT, HSPA+, use phoneinfo app (market) to toggle GSM-only/LTE settings.

Was he a single line or more than 1 line before being sent to customer retention

IIRC (from Nexus 4 forum), he had two lines, was over $120/mo, and had played CSR roulette trying for a cel-fi. After he said he wanted to cancel (he TRULY had poor coverage at home) and got a hold of retention, he was able to eek one out. Most fora say their cel-fi supply has been drained, however, based on user reports.

The main reason I was following this was for a business client of mine. He's 'last mile' internet, despite dead fiber running down his street less than 20 feet away. He currently pays over $400/mo for ISDN 1.5 synchronous 2yr/contract. Yet, I get over 40MBPS at his location on TMO, outdoors, but drop to near nothing inside his metal buildings. I'm unable to convince him TMO is capable of business-critical uptime, but I think a cel-fi in his window could go a long way towards convincing him.
