Just a thought after reading through this thread, but I know I've seen on other voluntary donation-run sites where there is a visible bar/meter which shows progress towards each monthly expense goal and shows filled when met. I think if you could somehow incorporate something along those lines such that it displays on top of every rendered page throughout the site for example, it would help serve as a reminder/encouragement for those of us who can to donate regularly to do so.

 

Granted, I can only speak for myself, but at least for my own part anyway seeing such a bar 'incomplete' would definitely serve as a reminder and motivator as opposed to being left to remember/think about doing so on my own. Between getting older (and the inherent memory slips that are progressively becoming more prominent sadly) and the ability to be distracted in general, I wouldn't trust myself on a regular basis even if the underlying intent otherwise is there.

Could someone please provide the specific differences between which maps are or are not available at the 2 sponsor levels? The basic sponsorship level just says "some interactive maps." I'd like to know which maps I still wouldn't be able to see unless I became a premier sponsor. (Unfortunately, I cannot donate $100!)

The premier sponsor maps provide additional information concerning the build out status of the particular tower. i.e. estimated upgrade times, backhaul install timeframes, deinstall dates, etc.

 

essentially it provides much more information than just the tower name and location

Thanks for the info. It sounds like the premier level is what I'd need for my purposes.

Also note that the expanded detail in the Premier Sponsor maps are for the First and Second Round of Network Vision only. S4GRU currently does not have detailed information on 3rd and 4th Round markets. We do have site maps of all Sprint sites (regardless of Round) in the standard Sponsor section.

Just sent over a small donation, nothing huge at all, if anything its a frown but I felt very little bit I can do for now to show some love for the knowledgeable information I read on here daily. :)

I just keep sending in my monthly $10. Eventually I might even make it to the next level. :)

As far as we all know, premier sponsor is the highest level, unless you are a staff member.

I hope to donate so much money to the cause that Robert will have to create a new one for me: S4GRU "Koch brothers level" Sponsor.

 

:P

I was at the hospital when I got your donation, but I was able to upgrade you from my phone. Thanks for supporting S4GRU.

Hey Robert, I just decided to throw a couple of bones, I know it's not much, but will continue to donate whatever I can. I find myself checking this site all the time for Sprint info. I forgot to add my username in the paypal donation process. If there is anything else I need to do, give me a holler. Once again, thanks for all that you do to keep us Sprint customers informed!

      I'm REALLY frustrated trying to figure out how to become a premiere sponsor. I assume this means a certain dollar amount of donation... I already donated a couple times for the 'basic' sponsorship, but would LOVE to be a premiere sponsor...yet I can't find anything on how much I need to donate to do it. Having to jump through such hoops to donate money makes it really easy for me to just want to give up and move on to something else.
       
      I'm sure the info is here somewhere, but a search of the forums turned up nothing, and I can't seem to find an email address to contact the admins to send a question, which would also be useful.
       
      This seems to me to be a HUGE hole and likely throwing away a lot of money by not making this information easily accessible. You'd get a lot more donating members if you maybe put a couple notes below the donation button so people have an idea of what they need to donate to get to x access level, or a link to a page that says if you donate this you get this.
       
      With that suggestion in place.... what's the answer? :-)

      I would like to become a sponsor and rather pay using bitcoin. Will you be accepting bitcoin in the future?
       
      One site that may be able to help you accept bitcoin is https://bitpay.com/

    • I think you guys should get in contact with folks at essential since they are very receptive to user feedback. They have hosted multiple AMAs on Reddit.
    • The Pixel 2 XL also does SRLTE all the time. The big downside seems to be that SMS always uses CDMA again instead of using IMS. So long messages will be split, incoming ones are out of order (and delayed a minute or 2 sometimes), and sending takes a while. Otherwise, I suspect incoming calls will be more reliable.

    • Technically Sprint has surpassed Tmobile in network quality just not actual coverage. But I’m hearing it’s also some LTE expansion in this. As both the CEO and COO have stated “cell sites in new areas” in some interviews. Don’t get me wrong extended LTE is cool. But it’s still roaming at the end of the day. I would rather them fill those extended LTE areas with native LTE.

    • I contacted the Sprint contact on Reddit who has been very helpful with solving these weird issues. Sometimes it takes a while to hear back but I have high hopes. 
    • I tried to report it again to Sprint i got the same answer no reports and the one i thought made the report ticket they no have record of it.
