  1. [Proposed] Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    A horizontal merger like this is good for one entity... Shareholders. Tens of thousands will potentially lose jobs, prices will go up, unlimited will go bye bye (unless you are willing to pay). Dont forget how powerful the big 2 are in the US government. They will win major concessions in the merger too. Which is another point, the larger a company becomes the less responsive they are to the consumer because ppl become a statistic rather than valuable. Look at equifax's or Comcast's treatment of customers.
  2. [Proposed] Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    I agree with Robert, no phone upgrades for me until this gets sorted out... If sprint goes away rebranded under tmo then I'll probably sign up with Verizon. I think masa has an uphill battle even with the current administration because both companies are operating at their best levels with lowest industry prices in years.
  3. Off topic but in all of the hospitals I've worked in - the truly high res diagnostic imaging, like what a radiologist uses, is done on a PC with big monitors in portrait mode. I've never seen a Mac in a reading room...aside from the radiologist's iPhone (which is being used to scroll through ESPN while working...) (that's a joke...sorta)
  4. Essentially a sprint exclusive.

    I'm going to get one, but I was waiting for a display model to play with it first...went to a store last week and the clerk had no idea what an Essential phone was. Funny thing about that though, there was a picture of it on the store's wall - and I turned around and pointed to it. He said "Oh, yeah that hasn't come in yet"
  5. Galaxy Note 8 rumors, specs, thoughts, etc

    I've always wondered about sprint's retention arm. I've been with sprint since 2000 and don't receive any news about credits or deals. Then again, I don't have much to complain about so I rarely call. Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk
  6. Essentially a sprint exclusive.

    I want to try this phone but if I'm gonna go caseless.... I want the matte finish stellar gray, hopefully the company will have that choice available for me. Samsung has disappointed me in color choices Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk
  7. Perhaps that's part of the reason why sprint went with calling + as an initial rollout of VoLTE features... So as not to break compatibility with all of sprint's affiliate networks Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk
  8. Well, humans have developed fiction as a device or allegory to represent real world issues... Science fiction can become reality.. Dun Dun Dunnnn Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk
  9. I agree. I have a big problem with a corporate overlord overtly "influencing" me. Seems like giving into hive mentality which all Sci fi movies warn against... Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk
  10. I thought this was a good article about sprint branding to the young ones... https://thenextweb.com/contributors/2017/08/24/how-sprint-leveraged-gen-z-to-pivot-their-brand/#.tnw_umzAKZuu I've not personally seen any of this advertising but I don't subscribe to influencers any of that type of marketing, has anyone else?

  11. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    It seems people are confusing an airrave for magic box. Magic box isn't a solution for low outdoor signal and speeds won't dramatically increase if the feeder signal is marginal (or if the source is 5x5 b25). If service is poor outside, the box won't create fiber fed service, u need an airrave Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk
  12. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    If I recall correctly, you live within shentel coverage. This may be the reason why no one has contacted. I live within shentel's footprint too and also requested a magic box the second I read about it on this forum. I haven't received any communication from Sprint aside from the acknowledgement email.

  13. Thats a great shentel speed test! Does anyone know if there have been magic boxes approved for those living in shentel areas? Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk
  14. iPhone 3/4 Activation

    I did this for my father about a year ago (iPhone se) . As soon as I left thier house, he had problems with the phone and being an android guy myself... I couldn't troubleshoot or navigate the menus over the phone. He ended up taking the phone back and getting a Samsung J3, set it to easy mode, and he's fine. Plus I can help navigate menus with him if needed. That was my experience. Those new moto e4 phones are cheap with a smaller screen size than most Android phones today too.

  15. Good on ya sprint! I'd like to see more twice the price advertisement... I think it's a really effective message. Like tmo did, sprint should really turn on the advertising jets Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk
