ditto- same here.There was a recent update for T-mobile that allows the use of eSIM on this device.
So far, this is the only functionality I haven't been able to use on the unlocked version of the N20U.
Can you confirm that the unlocked version picks up Band 71 LTE on T-Mobile?reading comments on an enthusiasts forum like xda should be taken with a grain of salt. lots of folks like to state they *know* for sure that something is this way or that, and this type of rhetoric can cause confusion.
that said , people should do their own research before buying the unlocked version, to make sure its radio is compatible with the carrier you are using.
ive had the unlocked note 10+ on tmo and have had the same experience as one would using a branded version. someone mentioned about rcs, and i cannot comment on that since i do not use it (i use textra).
many of us will get these phones tomorrow so we can find out right away what will work and what won't. that's why we are called "early adopters" - its those folks (early adopters ) who can report real data on these devices for the masses.
To fix that issue you can flash TMobile rom onto the unlocked version.I currently use an unlocked note 10+ on tmo that isn't flashed. The only limitation is that I cannot do tmo-to-tmo video calling. It may simply be a setting on my end but I never looked into it as there are so many options. Everything else works fine and I seem to get every update at the same time.
You don't lose wifi calling or video calling using unlocked on TMO.When speaking to Samsung about this, they told me all T-Mobile bands are supported including 5G on the unlocked versions. What you may lose is video calling (who cares) and possibly wifi calling. But in the past I've seen threads were talking to higher-level techs at T-Mobile can enable those features.
