  1. I see B4 in Lansing and West Michigan all the time, its just waiting for an update to B25, then shuffling back to B41
  2. I didn't see any topics for Network Vision in West Michigan, so I figured it was time to start a public thread to track this. As of now, there hasn't been any confirmation of any Network Vision in the West Michigan market. Some initial installs were expected in September, but nothing has been reported or seen in any of the cities. Also, there have been no reports of eHRPD being turned on in the market. The West Michigan market is basically everything west of US127/I75 splitting the State in half and all of the Lansing area. There are a few towers east of 127/75 to complete a city/town. Full maps are available in the Sponsors and Premier Sponsors section I will do my best to keep this thread updated as confirmed reports of work start rolling in from members in the market. If you suspect NV may be underway in your area, please get a picture of the tower and the location of it (closest intersection, gps coordinates, address, etc)
  3. [Teaser] The 9th Galaxy Arrives Early - The Galaxy S9

  4. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    Activated my old hotspot and very surprised to see it latching on to my magic box
  5. Tossed $50 at ya, gotta keep the site alive
  6. So much competition, ha. My only options are capped plans from mobile providers or satellite. No wired, no wisp, no competition, no options. I live two miles out of town, in a neighborhood, but we can't get the only cable provider to run service down here.
  7. Take a look at Portugal.... http://www.latimes.com/business/hiltzik/la-fi-hiltzik-portugal-internet-20171127-story.html

    Nexus 6P - not continuous SRLTE
  9. Do you want to be nickle and dimed for every service you want to use? Example... Comcast/Xfinity is your ISP, you pay say $70/month, so all the NBC Universal Streaming services are untiered, they want you to use their services, view their commercials, etc But wait, you want ESPN GO, Fox Sports Go, NBA League Pass, MLS Live, etc then in addition to paying the provider for those services, you need yo pay Comcast an extra $5/month Hold on, you love you social media platforms, well Twitter, Instagram, facebook, reddit, etc are going to cost you $5/month Oh you like video streaming? Netflix, Hulu, HBO Go, Paramount, etc kick Comcast about $15/month, on top of paying for the services. You might still be able to use all these services for your $70/month, but the data rates will be heavily capped or rate shaped to extort more money from you. Couple years down the road, new ISP pops up and you switch because its the same $70 for faster speeds. Uh oh, its not Xfinity any longer, so all those NBC Universal streaming services that have been given network priority at no cost to you, stump up $25/month to the new ISP. As noted earlier, just because this hasn't happened, doesn't mean it won't. Corporations a greedy and will squeeze every penny they can out of every side of a business deal to drive up stock prices. There isn't any competition in the Wired Internet market because the infrastructure is so freaking expensive and so hard to deploy with the myraid of local government regulations.
  10. Essentially a sprint exclusive.

    This happened with the MXPE, to get around we pulled the SIM and connected directly to a WiFi connection, then updates were available.

    Under contract, My mom needed a new phone, so I used a subsidy upgrade a bit over a year ago to get her a 128gb Galaxy S6 for free. It's got 9 months left, so it'd would cost me $180. THis would be a great deal if it worked out. I don't want to go thru all that, but props for the ingenuity...
  12. Essentially a sprint exclusive.

    Nope, I think because my account still has the subsidy flag. I got the option to add a line for 29.99/month, Plus the $5/month lease, plus $25.00 up front.
  13. Essentially a sprint exclusive.

    I can't get the discount being on ED1500, i think its because one of my lines is still utilizes a subsidized discount from a year ago. For me would it be $25 + $90 ($5/month 18 months) +$145 lease payoff?
