As of today, I am T-Mo customer with a new T6 in hand.  Signal strength in the house is 4-5 bars and of course full blown wi-fi.  I think I won't need a Cell Spot.
The T6 is very fast, the T-Mo version has 8 mgs of memory.  T-Mo also has a new transfer app that moved everything from the Moto over except the server settings for my email accounts. But texts, email, contacts all went in about 10 minutes. 

Blue tooth paired with the car instantly and loaded all my contacts in the car phone system.
And the only thing I had to do was load the wi-fi key for the house system.

I didn't buy the phone out right so financially it is close to a wash but I am done with VZ's arrogance. And I have the option of paying off the phone whenever I might like. Probably will in a couple of months and then the service will be a flat $50.00 with direct pay.

Nice! I'm glad it's working out so far. It looks like you're off to a great start.

One of these days I'll work on a CellSpot for my home. The signal mostly works, but it could certainly be better as I'm a little out in the sticks. I look forward to T-Mobile's new 600 MHz (Band 71) signal making it out to my little corner of the world.

Funny that my biggest reason for switching to T-Mo was that I was sick and tired of being sick and tired of Verizon's arrogance and pricing.

To arrange for next day delivery of a Cell Spot just dial 611 on the phone.  T-Mo, at least here, has set up regional CS teams, i.e. each time you call you get someone from the same team, and they seem to talk to one another.

We have a regional team here as well, and they are awesome. Best customer service idea ever. I'll have to give them a call.

Do you have multiple email addresses on your phone?  I have a gmail account and my ISP account using the Gmail app.  My phone is showing 2 inboxes, Gmail is using one, the ISP (IMAP) account messages are going to the other inbox. 
I may have solved this problem by forwarding the Gmail messages to the ISP email address, but I'm not sure yet.

Have you found a different solution?

I have discovered a down side to very small bezels.  I have been moving the main screen apps. to the center of the screen.

Edit: Forwarding the Gmail messages only guaranteed duplicate messages, still in separate inboxes.  So far I don't have another idea.

I have been using Nova Launcher for several years. One of the features I cannot live witout is that it allows me to lock down the desktop so that I cannot accidentally move or delete apps and shortcuts. I also like the consistency when I move to a new phone. Problem is that it fully replaces the stock launcher, which you may not like. Personally, I think it's great and I paid for the Prime version.

As for the email, I have no useful advice. I use the Gmail app, but with the notifications disabled. I also use my Fastmail account by using the web address on Firefox. I chose not to install the Fastmail app, as I saw no need for it.

I'm sure someone somewhere has a solution, but I don't even know where to look. I'm sorry I'm no help on this.

Thanks, I may have found a solution called Blue Mail, Inc in the Google store.  I am going to try it for a while.  Description says it will handle an unlimited number of accounts and consolidate messages.  We'll see.....

I'm not sure about your launcher.......

Further research on the Blue Mail app shows a very mixed bag with variation running from 5 stars to 1, equally divided among users.
I've decided to pass.  Looks now as if I have to live with the email issue.

No doubt a solution will come along. You can't possibly be the only one having similar issues.

How is T-Mobile and the 6T working out?

Looks like your 6T has an update pending.

So far it's been great.  Signal strength is good and wifi calling works well.  I am impressed with the phone volume and have had to turn it down a bit.  Much louder than my Moto was. 

I will check on the system update, thanks.

Android 9 had a security update and it seems a couple of minor system changes. After the update the phone "feels" crisper and faster. Probably my imagination.

Where did you see the system update notice?

I happened to see the article that I linked on my last poast. TMO News is one of my go to sites.
