    I hate to say it, but I've been having signal/speed issues, and just confirmed at least for me it's the "you're holding it wrong" thing. (or antenna placement) If I do a speed test the way I normally hold my phone I get 12-15 Mbps down/less than one up. If I hold the phone flat in my palm not covering the antennas it jumps up to 41-51 down/5-8 up. I tested several times in the exact same location, just adjusting how I'm holding it. That's a bummer. YMMV, but that seems to be my issue at least.

    I sorta cup it in my right hand, and use my pinky finger for support. It basically rests under the charging port. The bottom right antenna next to the SPen is almost completely covered by my hand.

    It’s because you’re not standing the right direction, with one leg and rubbing your stomach with your free hand... so I’ve heard ;-)

    This is my first unlocked on t-mobile. I don't notice a difference. My note 9 and S10+ were both tmobile phonesAttachment 308223

    I'm sorry for changing the subject of this thread, but I bought my brother an unlocked Note 10+ for his upcoming birthday. From what I've read on this thread, he won't have video calling. Is that something that usually comes included with the T-Mobile branded version of the Note 10+? If so, are there alternatives he can use instead? I believe his wife uses an S10, so I want to make sure they're able to video call if they need to. I apologize for what might sound like a dumb question, but the last Android phone I used was the Note 4. I've been using an iPhone ever since, so I'm afraid I don't know what apps are available for Android.
    They can just use WhatsApp or Facebook messenger or any other third party app.

    It's not hard you'll need Odin 3.13.1 prince comsey download to computer and the unlocked firmware can get from sammobile ,after you download the firmware extract the zip and then load it file according to the slots ...can watch some YouTube videos to get familiar with the process , you need to put the phone in download mode by holding power/volume down button same time

    Did it improve your signal strength? I wouldn’t be surprised if your bars changed but I’m only curious about -dB readings or known call drop areas.

    So as of now I am in 4GLTE all night... Prior to flashing I would see H or H+ alot.
    Will keep you posted.
    Question where or how do I measure the - db

    Easier way is to just install signal check. I have the pro version
