Try to make this as short and simple as possible. I have three devices; 2 of which are on the same plan and the third on a separate plan.
The third device is my tab 4 which is picking up SprintB41 site 310120 just great. I get 3 bars downstairs.
My other two devices; Galaxy Note 4 & Galaxy Note Edge for some reason will not pick up this tower. I have tried PRL updates, Profile updates, restarted the phones and all I can get them to connect to is a ClearwireB41 site.
More background info...all devices have same Sim card as when purchased, tablet stays off 3/4 of the day and my phones are on when I wake up and turn them off at night. No matter where I go inside or out my phones won't connect to the Sprint site.
Anybody have any ideas before I call Sprint trying to figure something out? I'm not sure how long the tablet has been able to connect to this site so I'm not sure what to think of it besides agitated that the tablet of all things is connecting. I posted two photos; one of the tablet connected to the Sprint site; second of the Clear wire site my phones connect to.
Samsung Network Vision equipment are highly distinct and fairly easy to spot compared to the equipment that other vendors are deploying. Sprint is Samsung's first extremely massive American contract (baring Clearwire) so there should be no issues in confusing these equipment for another carrier which happens often with Ericsson NV equipment.
Below are images of Samsung equipment which includes antennas, remote radio units, base stations, and their mounting configurations.

So I have had the chance to play around with the Tab 4(Wi-fi) only model, and Like how much smoother it is than the Tab 3 series. Now What are some of your favorite features About the device? Hopefully sprint will announce one with Tri-band support. I will Grab one when they come out if they do!
I believe the Tab 4 on Sprint will have Triband, as the Verizon has 3 band LTE support and At&t version have 4 bands I believe.
Also if you are looking for a Tab 4 Wifi only version, Check Target out, it has a Cartwheel coupon for 10% off a Tab 4, plus 20% off a Tab 3. And I want to say a coupon off Other Samsung Accessories!
I imagine it takes time for this information to flow across teams. I’m not sure what the lead time is for generating the Coverage Map updates, but perhaps that has something to do with it.
If you’re aware of specific sites that are missing, you should mention it in a reply to /u/Craig-S (https://www.reddit.com/user/Craig-S) on the Sprint Subreddit in this current Coverage Map thread:
/u/Craig-S is one of the people in charge of Sprint’s Coverage Map, and he’s participating in this thread.
He also said about a month ago in an older Coverage Map thread that they were reviewing all of their processes:

Here’s when it came to iOS (2012): https://9to5mac.com/2012/02/28/sprinttv-comes-to-iphone-bringing-abc-cbs-nbc-espn-disney-mtv-and-comedy-central-with-it

I wonder what the future of Sprint TV is. It doesn’t seem to be getting any attention at all. Perhaps they’ll shut it down entirely after the HULU Live Upgrade is available for Sprint customers.
