I've been waiting for this to happen ever since the merger was announced. You can now swap out your SIM card for free at any former Sprint store and move over to the T-Mobile network. It took me about 10 minutes to swap two phones. it does not change your plan.

We did this last week... T-Mobile is GSM and Sprint is CDMA. T-Mobile is not using sprint towers yet, they are completely separate antennas/bands. For us, the T-Mobile sim card works 6 times better cellular data wise at my house than the sprint sim card with the same phone. I speed tested two iPhone 11 pro max's, one with sprint/one with T-Mobile sims. The T-Mobile store can put a sprint sim card back in your phone, but they haven't had many requests to do that because the GSM network is better than sprints CDMA in many cases. Some phones like LG G8 is not GSM capable. You can take your phone in and they will tell you in seconds if its eligible for the T-Mobile sim card. All iPhone 6's and above are eligible. Everything your original plan offers with sprint is included with this and there is no additional monthly fees for using the T-Mobile Sim card.

Beware that Sprint customers who go TNX will lose access to national retailer upgrades. That means you cannot get any Walmart and Best Buy deals, like SWAC/kickstart planholders and must upgrade with Sprint directly, just like the rest of T-Mobile suckers stuck with shitty corp store promos and endless bill credits (naturally, this is from the dishonest (un-)carrier that claimed they killed the 2-year contract).

TNA is for Sprint customer who is still using Sprint SIM card to switch the access to T-mobile network as primary and Sprint network as backup. This is the first wave of migration. This can be done thru Chat or over the phone.

On the other hand TNX is for Sprint customer who want to convert to T-mobile network. This process will require the new T-mobile SIM card in your Sprint device. You will need to go to store to get the SIM card.

if you switch to TNX, you can use T-mobile SIM on any T-mobile compatible phone. The only thing on Sprint is your billing at the moment.

Same question. I do suspect that the way T-Mobile packages their plans makes the total taxes, surcharges, fees, etc much less. No confirmation on this, but Sprint takes an arm and leg every month.

I did TNA 6 weeks ago and my download increased from 2-20 mbps to 150-225 mbps on the same phone.

Are you sure? The last time I asked TNX is still subject to Sprint's whitelist for activations

I changed 2 days ago to TNX in the store ,you still have the sim tied to the phone similar to Metro .I took the sim out and tried to use in a different unlocked phone and it doesnt work ,but hopefully it will be easier to change online ,since we do not need any specific sim for each phone anymore .

Is there a list of phones that can be TNXd? I went in to a T-Mobile store and was told that my phone, an LG V40 Thinq from Sprint, does not qualify. But it seems to have all the right bands, including 71.

So if I purchased iPhone 12 from T Mobile and it is not unlocked, then can I use TXN feature to swap my line from Sprint to T Mobile network and use it ?
