    We used to have T4GRU. It never gained a foothold after two years. I was urged by several prominent Tmo fanboys to do it for years. But they did not participate in the way they offered. We had a small loyal group, but it could not keep financially supported. I just allowed it to go dark in July.

    I don't like T-Mobint. How about T-Sproble?
  4. Thanks for your entry! I noticed that too, that's why I credited Phone Arena on the bottom of the pic...or maybe I should say blamed Phone Arena. Robert
  5. Now some appeared in Rapid City. It aligns right up with AT&T towers there. It's unfortunate AT&T roaming is polluting the Sprint Sensorly map. Robert

    For me...I believe unlimited and prices are the most at risk for a merger. They will likely make promises to regulators not to scrap unlimited or raise price for one year. They won't offer it initially when presenting for approval. But it will be one of the things they offer early to help anti-trust issues. And if they get desperate, they'll offer more than a year. I don't think prices will double overnight, or anything. But Tmo cancelled unlimited before. And it was only Sprint who held firm. Not that Sprint is some holy protector of unlimited. They did it only to differentiate and try to compete. In a Triopoly world, if the new Tmo drops unlimited again, AT&T and VZW would follow suit quickly. They can't wait to go back. It will only be a mere Legere business decision to end unlimited in the USA. Maybe forever. I personally don't use much data anymore. It's not a big deal to me, all things considered. I like unlimited data because I hate constantly keeping track, and having to constantly meter my behavior over a remaining period. I hate that.

    I don't recall anyone saying they expect pricing to further reduce in either scenario...Sprint going alone nor a merger with Tmo.

    There are positives to be had if there is a merger, for sure. I don't believe a merger is bad in every way. And if it happens, there will be things that I will like. I just believe, at this time, all things considered, I'd prefer they'd be separate. Just my opinion, and I respect the opinions of others points as well. Because I considered them, and they are marked in the 'pro' column for me. I like where Sprint is going now more than ever in its past. And Sprint's road to "5G" is less capital intensive than the others because of spectrum and equipment deployed.
  10. I see the purple on the Minuteman Site. I've been to it many sites. Very friendly horse next to it. It's a well established AT&T Guyed Wire Site. It's possible this might be AT&T LTE Roaming pollution on Sensorly. Especially given the strength of the report. I was expecting the Sprint site in this area to be in the town site of Wall itself. I guess it's possible Sprint chose this site instead. If I still lived in the area, I'd go check it out. But alas..
  11. LIMITED TIME PROMOTION!!! YOU COULD POSSIBLY WIN A NEW iPHONE 8 IF YOU DONATE TO SUPPORT S4GRU **OR COMPARABLY PRICED ANDROID DEVICE!** The Goal The goal is to have some fun and raise some money to support S4GRU. If we can raise enough money to cover the device by 8 PM Pacific Time on Friday, October 27th, then we will schedule the raffle. The contest winner can select the color from what's available. The winner can also select the carrier (not limited to Sprint). The Plan If we are able to raise at least as much as the device costs us plus incidental charges like taxes and shipping, we will add any additional proceeds to the S4GRU general fund. If we can't raise enough, we will provide opportunity to refund. And which model it ends up being depends on how much money we can raise. If we raise just $750, it will be the iPhone 8 64GB ($699 value). For each additional $500 we collect beyond $750, we will give another $100 in toward upgrading to the iPhone 8+, iPhone X or memory/apple care upgrades. The winner can select any variant or upgrades, but they will need to pay any cost difference, from the prize value. Increases in prize vales will be announced in this thread. THE WINNER CAN SELECT AN ANDROID DEVICE IN LIEU OF AN iPHONE, IF THEY CHOOSE. Like a NOTE 8, Pixel 2, LG V30, Essential Phone, etc. Equal of lesser value to the winning iPhone prize. The Raffle Each donation to the iPHONE 8 PROMO will receive a range of numbers, equating to one number for every dollar you donate. The minimum donation to the cause is $10. If you donate $10, you get a range of 10 numbers. If you donate $100, you get a range of 100 numbers. The more you donate, the greater your chances of winning. There is no limit to the amount you can donate...in amount or frequency. But it needs to be at least $10 per donation to the iPHONE 8 PROMO. You will receive a Private Message (or email if you are not a S4GRU member) from S4GRU giving you your numbers after your donation. Most likely within 8-12 hours, but could take a day or two. We will stop accepting donations at 8PM Pacific on Friday, October 27th. Any donations received after that time will not be counted toward this promotion. Date and time of the drawing will be announced after the close of donations acceptance. We will select a number at random using my random number generator app in my Pixel XL. You do not need to be present in the live chat to win. All money donated to the raffle will be credited to your S4GRU accumulation total and will count toward future upgrades. If you are not currently a S4GRU Sponsor, you will be given Sponsor status for six months with the minimum $10 raffle donation. To Enter Go to the S4GRU PayPal Donation section by clicking on this hyperlink or by by clicking the donate button in the upper right hand corner of most S4GRU pages. Enter an amount you want to donate for this promotion, minimum $10. In the notes section, tell us your screen name and type iPHONE 8 PROMO. If you forget to do that in the PayPal donation, then send me a Message. You will get a message response giving you your raffle numbers by 11 PM Pacific on 10/27/2017. If you don't get them, message me. Rules S4GRU Membership is not required to enter. S4GRU Staff Members and their families are ineligible to win. Dollars spent on the promotion will count toward future member upgrades. There is no cash value of the prize. S4GRU will pay the shipping costs to send the prize to the winner.

Pre-scheduled automatic recurring payments to S4GRU during the contest period will not be eligible for entry in the contest. Should the winner desire a phone other than the iPhone product offered at contest conclusion, they can request an Android device of equal or lesser value. If a device more expensive than the iPhone offered is desired, the winner will need to pay the difference before the product will be ordered. If winner selects a less expensive phone than the prize offered, S4GRU will retain those funds as a donation. The contest may be subject to amendment, extension or cancellation as necessary. S4GRU reserves the right to provide a gift card or PayPal payment of the value of the prize for convenience or difficulty in sourcing the prize occurs. Photo Courtesy of Phone Arena

    This is a very shortsighted comment. As if Sprint had the ability to print money. Or they had some large windfall and mis-spent it. It is Tmo that had the windfall, like when AT&T had to pay them off after they pulled out of the buyout. Sprint only had tons of debt.
  13. [Proposed] Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    This isn't an issue of need. Sprint needs someone less now today than at any point in the past 5 years. And Tmo doesn't need anyone. It's a business decision. It's believed it is the best return for share holders, if they can agree on a deal. That is far different than need. But money does make the world go round.
