I will say it is cool none the less. No other provider comes close to the amount of data they show to customers.

No I agree I'm am definitely going to use it often. :)

On the app you wouldn't know it was for Kansas though. Nice to see the full text.

Yeah, for sure. Thanks for reverse engineering the alerts so I could see local alerts for my area. I finally have an update on the Visalia area. They said that etr is scheduled for 2-22-14 for at least 2 sites in Visalia. The excitement is brewing. :)

I uninstalled the app and tried this only to get a blank page. Before I uninstalled the app there was a closed ticket

Interesting.  I can confirm it works without the app though.  No app on the Nexus 5 and it works for me.

Except that I see that exact same message when I punch in my very-much-not-Kansas number..? Even though it is listed as a "Kansas City market" outage, does that "ticketLevel=NATIONAL" flag attach it to everyone? I don't think a KC tower is my most used tower, since I've never been there..  :)

Same here. I see it on the app as well. It doesn't show the Kansas part though but the ticket number is the same.

wow, a useful purpose for Sprint Zone who knew. I restored my bacup from TI backup, my eta of completion says Feb 2014. My tower has been borked Since July. Would be nice if it showed the actual tower but this is a good start.

Anyone notice the following added feature in Sprint Zone?

I see they are using Network Vision as an excuse for this outage. How do we know the Network Vision buildout caused the problem? I have been told that disclaimer for the past two years. Every time a tower goes down and we still don't have Network Vision in New York's Hudson Valley. Can you believe 2014 will be here in just three weeks and guess what? STILL NO NETWORK VISION!!! SHAKING  MY HEAD...

I am guess they blocked the requests by agents such as IE, Mozilla, etc. Or was there an update recently to the app? If so could some snag the apk? I haven't tried to sideload it on the N5 yet.

I was able to deodex the version in the LG G2 system dump (4.5.31) and load it onto my Nexus S. ADB log shows "connection refused" when the app itself attempts to contact zone.sprint.com, so it looks like the user agent doesn't make a difference.

Never mind, figured it out. They're actually limiting connections to zone.sprint.com by IP address now. Once I disabled Wi-Fi on my Nexus S, the Sprint Zone app was able to successfully refresh. So I tethered my laptop to my phone, and I was able to pull up zone.sprint.com with Google Chrome.

 

They must have freaked out when their server logs showed all of our connections from various IP addresses before, since they're leaking account-specific information if you just type in any phone number.

Nice work..  looks like their app won't work on wifi now though.

It's working again, regardless of the means of access.

Nice work..  looks like their app won't work on wifi now though.

 

Not sure if you'll have to do this on Nexus 5, but I had to explicitly specify my device info to get Sprint Zone fully working on my Nexus S.

 

In the following file...

/data/data/com.sprint.zome/shared_preferences/com.sprint.zone_preferences.xml

...I added the following lines...

<string name="funnyPref1">%NAI%</string>
<string name="funnyPref2">%MEID-HEX%</string>
<string name="funnyPref3">%RESELLER-ID%</string>
<string name="funnyPref4">%MSID%</string>
<string name="funnyPref5">%PRL-VERSION%</string>
<string name="funnyPref6">%MDN%</string>
<string name="funnyPref7">%MAKE%</string>
<string name="funnyPref8">%MODEL%</string>

...with my actual device data, of course. It looked something like this:

<string name="funnyPref1">jason****@sprintpcs.com</string>
<string name="funnyPref2">A00000**********</string>
<string name="funnyPref3">Sprint</string>
<string name="funnyPref4">504*******</string>
<string name="funnyPref5">60798</string>
<string name="funnyPref6">504*******</string>
<string name="funnyPref7">Samsung</string>
<string name="funnyPref8">Nexus S 4G</string>

Prior to doing that, tapping Refresh would spit an error into the device log stating "mdn is a required parameter," which is what the server responds when it doesn't receive a valid MDN. After making the modification, account auto-login worked correctly, I could see all my devices and billing data, and service trender alerts appeared.

 

This seems to be an issue because my device doesn't system properties for MDN, NAI, and PRL that Sprint Zone is looking for. I've been attempting to reverse-engineer the specific properties with no success. I'll post them here if I can find them, since using setprop is a lot easier than modifying shared preferences.

This Nexus 5 doesn't believe in Sprint Apps

Works great on my Nexus 5 using the instructions I posted above.

    • you'll need to flash the Sprint firmware. 
    • There are really two providers in Canada: ROGERS and TELUS/Bell. TELUS and Bell operate the same network. 
    • How is Canada's three wireless companies working out...
    • No. You are not based in reality if you think the wireless market is going to stagnate if Sprint and T-Mobile merge. 5g is coming and will be pushed by everyone in the market place.    The question is weather you want it to follow the same pattern LTE did or not. Would you like the big two to deploy a really solid 5g network and the other two to deploy an uneven networks or 3 solid th networks?    You anti-merger people dont understand the role capital intensive industries play in shaping such markets.  If a market is capital intensive it is more efficient with fewer players. Imgaine if the market still looked like it did in 2003, we would have plenty of players and regional plans with not even 3g deployed.   Sprint has 30 billion. They are able to increase CAPEX this year because they don't have much maturing this year.  This is not the case the next two years which means they are likely to starve their network again over that time. Mean while the big two aren't going to stand still. Sprint isn't growing top line income fast enough to make themselves viable on their own.      
    • This merger would stagnate the wireless market it would stink almost immediately.  You are pro-merger but already wondering if they would have capital to build and expand the network.  Sprint now has positive revenue to increase CAPEX for additional B41, MIMO, and 5G why hault the improvements that Sprint has been making?   You guys screaming pro merger really need to sit back and really think, are you willing to see less competition and increasing wireless bills?  Not to mention that unlimited will be a thing of the past, after all it was Sprint and T-Mobile that made the big two offer unlimited.  If this merger goes through I don't want to hear complaining I am taking names...
