    Has TMobile signed up for this thing yet? I would imagine so but haven't specifically looked.

    If you mean will they offer it.... not likely, as they don't do crowd funded phones. Planet Computers isn't much above Unihertz in volume, and that's not anywhere close to what the carriers are looking to offer.

    My guess the LG WING was about as "niche" as they want to go.... and not sure how well it did.

    Then why does it only have their 5G band?

    Why is it missing three out of four of T-Mobile's 5G bands?

    This is a Crowdfunded device, by it's very nature it's not a carrier device.

    My point simply was that it seems as of now it will only work on Tmobile as a 5G device which they are advertising.

    I would be hesitant to get it knowing this since I hang on to devices for a while and am on a different network.

    Never understood appeal of horizontal sliders but there's a LOT of things in this universe I've never understood. Lol. Does seem to validate some entry barrier relaxation. Which might portend some potential variety from some niche players? MAYbe mobile markets might be maturing enough to better consider filling vacuums?
