You guys able to see any tracking information yet with your tracking numbers? Both mine have UPS numbers but they're not active yet in the UPS system.

 

Think they'll get here tomorrow??? Going to take off work for new phone day!! (and finish up some landscaping work)

I saw a possible issue when I went to activate the phone. 10GB tethering option was not there and HD streaming was unchecked. I talked to chat to make sure it stays. Not sure what will happen to the 10 GB tethering if you don't call. I just saw HD streaming unchecked and thought I would call about it. I was not given an answer they did the activation and it is still in my plan for now.

I always have to activate by chat. Online activation has never worked for me.

Fast chargers work through the micro to C adapters with any QC2.0 charger wall wart! (and with USB to C cords)

 

But, my choetech fast charging pads don't work. I've reached out to the company to hopefully get a resolution but I'm mega disappointed. I've got 6 of those littered throughout my life.

 

However, my Seneo fast wireless charger does work!

 

Edit: My QC2.0 car Chargers do NOT fast charge either. Womp, Womp. Mixed bag here, frustrating indeed.

i just ordered this phone so I haven't received it yet but from my experience with first my HTC One M8 and then my Nexus 6, online activation has never been a problem.

So working through the phone and all it's quirks. I've found that the face unlock (you can have them all active and registered meaning face, fingerprint, iris) is the best way around having to use that rear fingerprint sensor.  I know it's not as secure, but day to day usage is going to be the quickest.  It's taking a lot of work to get over not having that front finger print sensor like the Note5.  Otherwise loving the phone.

      I'm here looking for answers to a simple question. Where is this mystery Sprint signal coming from? For the past few weeks I've received a signal on multiple Sprint devices, two Sprint devices with roaming turned off, and two Virgin Mobile phones and Virgin Mobile phones can't roam, the other rate plans might be able but I'm talk about Virgin Mobile devices from before they introduced all those other plans. What I'm making clear is these devices have to be picking up a Sprint signal, plus I've downloaded the SignalCheck Pro app which has indicated two different signals 1XRTT and 1X800. 
       
      The signal only last for about 8 hours each morning and begins coming in and out towards the end of each morning. I try making a call and it fails, and it doesn't get any data at all. I try each device and they all do the same thing they have a signal and very strong signal with no data, and voice doesn't go threw, I haven't tried sending a text figured no data, no voice then there must be no text.
       
      I read about some "projects"  that Sprint has going on Project Ocean and Project Cedar. Since Project Ocean is suppose to be taking place in Missouri and I live so close to the Iowa, Missouri line, I figured if there is a tower going up maybe it is possible I'm getting a signal from it, in the early stages. I really don't know what is going on, if Sprint is launching service, putting up new towers and that signal finally comes, and stays, and works. I'll be back full time on the Sprint ban wagon. Unfortunately, I live in an area not served by (according to experience and coverage map) Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint. Not even the two Iowa carriers i Wireless or Chat Mobility serve my area, go 10, 15 or 20 miles in any direction your good, here, wireless dead zone, no choice of carriers. And if Sprint puts a tower here if I finally get an answer and learn that signal will soon come and stay and work I'll finally have a choice.
       
      So if anyone has any ideas, has experienced this in other parts of the country or has any idea what could be going on please say. Any information is better than not knowing, and together maybe this will be answered.

      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.
       
      Thanks in advance.

      The next front in the prepaid wars: Ting is adding support for GSM/WCDMA/3GPP devices (apparently as a MVNO of T-Mobile, directly or indirectly, if the coverage map is to be believed) and will allow you to have GSM and CDMA devices on the same account, apparently going a step further than the Straight Talk empire. LTE data is apparently included, but not depicted on the maps.
       
      http://www.androidcentral.com/sprint-mvno-ting-support-gsm-starting-february-2015
       
      Now a real Ting coup would be to allow access to both the Sprint and T-Mobile networks on a single line without a SIM swap if you have a device that works on both (like Nexus 5/6 etc.). Technically devices without a firmware lockout of domestic competitor networks, like the Nexus 5 and 6 and the new devices coming in a few months, should be able to do it.

      From the FireceWireless website: NetZero to ditch Verizon in favor of Sprint:

      Will 1900 be reframed for LTE only? Or is 1x Advanced not worth it at such a high frequency?

    • The 123 subway station at Penn Station finally has B41. Its from the Transit wireless DAS but in the past it only had B25 LTE. Nice to see more B41 lighting up underground. I'm going to check the ACE side sometime this week as well. 
    • I'd just wonder how long it would take to get the networks to mesh.  How integrated would they need to be to have seemless handoffs, especially with voice.  Then how long will this integration take to get to that point. That's if they even integrate networks. Maybe they could say just point Sprint's equipment to TMobile's servers, push some updates and be integrated.  Not knowing a thing about how their networks work, this is the grey area and the area I'd be concerned with.  For data, I can see just open up bands to each others customers, retransmit requests/packets if hopping networks.  But not sure that will go well for VoLTE.  Plus there could be a lot of lost packets which wouldn't be good for a lot of services.  I'd imagine at first say as a Sprint customer I would be able to use the TMobile network, but when the phone scans it would scan for Sprint channels first then scan for TMobile if it can't find Sprint.  
    • Apparently the MiniMacros was an actual order placement.  But I don't know how long of a period a time this order is for.
    • Hmm makes sense kinda, I've noticed my battery has tanked a lot myself. Probably going to disable it and see if it makes a difference.
