    I have three lines on TM, all used to get decent but not great coverage at home and in the neighborhood (Lakemont in Bellevue, WA). For past few days, I hardly get 1 bar on my two Windows 10 Nokia phones, but my iPhone 7 gets 3-4 bars, I switched the sim cards from my Win-Nokia to Win-HTC, Win-Samsung phones, still barely 1 bar. But then I switched to a 4-year old Samsung-Galaxy-Android, I am getting 3-4 bars! The three phones (iPhone, Android,Windows) are on my table now next to each other, still the bar strength is 4-4-1, respectively. Anyone have this experience?

    On speedtalk mobile, which uses the t-mobile network, problems with data. Get only a very slow Edge connection. Already called customer service a few times but still no result. Using a Lumia 640 XL dual sim.

    Which SIM are you using for T-Mobile?

    Nope. Here's the thing. All of these phones have different cellular radios. Some are stronger over others. The iPhone 7 has Cat 12 LTE, which makes for better speeds and improved connectivity.

    T-Mobile is moving away from the old PCS band 4 and putting all its eggs into band 12 and the new band 66. Many older phones don't have band 12 and only a handful of newer T-Mobile phones have band 66.

    This is the price of progress people. Few, if any, phones from 2014 will be working in a year or two. Verizon is ditching CDMA in 2 years which will render every single VZW Windows in existence today completely useless.

    Don't shoot the messenger.

    It's the original sim provided by Speedtalk mobile.
