I understand. It's a free market. I am not really asking for anyone to sympathize with me. It is just interesting that Sprint has been so aggressive with their plans (e.g. Cut bill in half etc.)...and they have match competition offers every step (see Sprint offers immediately after Tmo announce something)...until now i guess. I guess because i have 4 lines with older iPhones, these other offers appeal to me more than some of you guys with newer models. That's the price i pay for being so darn cheap and keeping my phone so long and now have minimal value! :D

Sell your phone privately on Swappa and make way more. I just sold a 16GB 5C last night for $140.

That's not bad, but it's pretty incredible that other carriers are giving $400 for a 5. And it is a little surprising that Sprint isn't matching that. My parents are on Verizon, and I made them jump on that deal because they'll be hard pressed to get anything close to that elsewhere. But it is what it is. For me at least, Sprint is still the best overall value when looking at total cost over a multi year timeframe.

While $400 for a 5/5C/5S and $650 for a 6 or above is a great deal, the devil is still in the details. The credit is applied in monthly installments spread equally over 24 months. If the party decides to upgrade that line during the 24 month window, the monthly credit ends, relinquishing any credits that are still remaining. If they plan to keep the new phone for a minimum of 24 months and don't mind waiting for the credit, it's a great deal, but in reality it's simply a 24 month contract.

If you think 24 months is bad, what do you think about ATT's 30 months of credit small print: https://www.att.com/shop/Upper_Funnel_Promo_Modals/Wireless_Promo_Modals/tradein-offer.html

So ever since I downloaded iOS 10 my phone has dropped to 3G once. It used to drop to 3G all the time. Maybe sprint's lte network is ready for volte but our devices were fooling us this whole time lol.

 

 

But in all seriousness the difference is night and day.

I've had the opposite experience - I lose LTE a lot more with iOS 10 and Sprint 25.1 but maybe that is because Seattle is in the IBEZ and we don't have any 800mhz...

My 7 showed up today. I had it running google maps for about a 2 hour drive and it seemed to stay connected to LTE much better throughout the trip than my 6 did previously. My 6 would often get stuck on 1x and 3G whenever it was actively trying to load data (constantly loading the map as I am driving). Not sure if this is due to the new phone, new carrier update with iOS 10 or both.

Are you using apple maps or google maps?  I know there was a change on the Google Maps/Android side in the past year where the app downloads the entire route when you start and only grabs changes to the route as needed and adjusts it then.

 

I have no experience with the Apple Maps...

I was using google maps.  I was also using satellite view.  I believe the route is loaded immediately but using satellite view constantly loads the view for your current location.

That really sucks I was hoping to get the phone at least by my birthday next month. I've been hearing November, but I heard that like a good 3-4 days after I ordered mine lol. I'm hoping for the best you never know with Apple.

I'm picking up at 128gb variant  today and once I do I'm going to cancel the 256 I pre-ordered. I figured maybe I don't need 256 just be really nice to have but anticipated having it already.

    • I am definitely interested in checking more into this phone. Am I correct in assuming all phones being released from this point on (before now, really)  are HPUE compliant?
    • I am 100% against this merger.  Sprint and Tmobile should remain separate to keep the competition at 4 players.  If currently there were 7 semi major players in the wireless industry, I would agree with you that consolidation of a few more players would be beneficial for the industry due to LTE and 5G going forward requiring high amounts of spectrum bandwidths.  However we are now down to 4 players which to me is already a good number to maintain nationally.  Comparing how it looked in 2003 doesn't matter back then because we didn't have LTE that required at least 5x5 , 10x10, 20x20 MHz bandwidth. It would have sucked if we still have 7 major players in the 600 MHz auction with only 70 MHz available for purchase and each buying a nationwide 5x5 block of spectrum instead of fewer players buy a bigger chunk of spectrum to deploy larger bandwidths. Sprint needs to be worrying about getting itself into gear and try to deploy its B41 LTE in small cells and densify its network instead of looking for a bailout in Tmobile to save them.  
    • You literally said #2 carrier ahead of AT&T. They're #2 not because of network metrics but because of the amount of subscribers they have. Nationally, they're still ranked last in terms of overall network performance because despite their square milage, they still lack in call and text reliability. There is zero doubt that they have one of, if not the fastest network in the country but that is far from the only metric to measure a network, even if it's the most important to you. All you have to do is look at the recent reddit thread that suggested T-Mobile might stop their program that gives people those Cellspots to see that a lot of people were ready to switch because the only thing keeping them on was that device giving them service indoors. At least we know Sprint is going all in on the Magic Boxes and they treat it as a part of their network instead of as just another device.
    • Nothing to do anything about number of customers... How are they not on par with the big two?  TMobile is crushing it for data in all the major markets.  If TMobile can execute their 2017 coverage map goal, they will be on par with AT&T, which is considered to be in the same coverage league as VZW.  So yes, TMobile will be in this club come 2018. https://www.t-mobile.com/coverage/lte-comparison-map
    • This is a reach. AT&T and Verizon still have twice as many customers as T-Mobile and even if they added 2 Million customers per quarter it would take 8 years before they got to VZ and AT&T's current size, assuming VZW or AT&T don't have any growth at all. We can acknowledge T-Mobile's accomplishments without making it seem like they're nearly on par with the big two. In terms of data speed, sure. In terms of price, they're approaching it too. However, you won't be able to find the consistency of the duopoly's network nationwide on T-Mobile right now. That'll take quite a bit more infill sites. That's why given Sprint's "non-announcement" of 8K macro sites for expansion, I'm glad to see it's not a huge expansion because we know that they're going for reliability over square mileage.
