  1. [Proposed] Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    Lets not get ahead of ourselves, wait for the announcement and then hash it out.
  2. Galaxy Note 8 rumors, specs, thoughts, etc

    That I know of the naming convention is as follows.. S = Series, Smart Series M = I have yet to find any info on what this letter means N = Note series 950 = Model number (whether that has a more drilldown meaning, I wouldn't know) U = Universal (although in some outlets I read it is for Unlocked, Previous phones had this indicator as the carrier like P for Sprint) Maybe @Deval can break it down as to what it actually all means.

    Seems the majority of the members don't have a problem with the color scheme. The needs of the many, outweigh the needs of the few or the one. So for those that do have an issue (and are using Chrome browser) then just install the "Dark Mode" Chrome extension by Grephy. It makes the site (or any site) look like this... The cool thing about it is that its a toggle in the upper toolbar that one can go back to regular bright view or dark anytime you want. TS out

  5. Galaxy Note 8 rumors, specs, thoughts, etc

    I forgot about this. Didn't check yesterday. Just checked now and yep its there, just like Sammobile said it would, but instead of version N950USQU1AQ1 it is N950USQU1AQ15. 198.04 mb in size. Downloaded and installed but my hope it would have the camera update to allow modes download and it is still not there. bummer.
  6. Galaxy Note 8 rumors, specs, thoughts, etc

    I noticed that there is no Dual Camera mode in the camera settings as well as no way to download any other camera modes either. The S8 and S8+ had the download icon. So I sent both Samsung and Sprint a tweet as to why its missing on the Note8. I then noticed that SamMobile tweeted about a few minutes later that Samsung is issuing its first OTA update for Note8 users that specifically deal with the camera within the next day or two. Hopefully it includes the missing download icon and dual camera mode. TS
  7. Multiple form factors. I wonder what they would look like.
  8. Galaxy Note 8 rumors, specs, thoughts, etc

    hmmm @Deval I guess you are right. anyway... So I got two Note 8s, and one of them was capturing very good signal, but the other one was not so much. Little did i know that it was on roaming for a day and a half on verizon. Ugh. anyway now its back to Sprint 800 and Clearwire B41²
  9. Galaxy Note 8 rumors, specs, thoughts, etc

    I have about an hour before I leave to my concert, but as I check out the phone, I am surprise that it weighs less than the S8+ when every review says otherwise.
  10. Galaxy Note 8 rumors, specs, thoughts, etc

    So I set up my camera to watch the front door and my better half stayed home to sign the packages this morning. Noticed a few UPS guys come to the door to deliver packages, but none from Sprint. But just now, another one came and bam, its from Sprint. The Notes have arrived. Too bad I won't have time to play with them today since after work i have a concert to go to and will get back late, but tomorrow with be Note Exploring Day for me.
  11. So I recently upgraded my Dell XPS 18 to a Samsung Notebook 9 Pro 2017 2 in 1. In the past with the Dell, I had one of those Sierra Wireless USB dongle device from Sprint, now a days I connect the Samsung to the internet using the hotspot on my phone, but I'm curious. Is that still better than getting a dedicated usb dongle LTE device? So, for those that connect their laptops to the network, what do you use and or why? TS

    LMAO hmmm, TS checks moderators control panel, searches for chamb, chooses ban and delete box, hits enter button. TS
  14. Galaxy Note 8 rumors, specs, thoughts, etc

    Maybe others will be lucky, but my status has changed from scheduled delivery of today to Tuesday Sept 5. Which sucks since there won't be anyone home to sign for it. ugh. TS

  16. Galaxy Note 8 rumors, specs, thoughts, etc

    hmmm You may be right about this. Just checked this morning and the same status "A UPS shipping label has been created. Once the shipment arrives at our facility, the tracking status will be updated." hasn't change. Yet it also says estimated delivery 9/1/2017 by end of day. Things that make you say hmmm. TS
  17. Galaxy Note 8 rumors, specs, thoughts, etc

    Isn't the Sprint/UPS distribution center in Louisville, Kentucky. It could be that they are starting early because all that rain from Hurricane Harvey is heading towards that area, and they got permission to start sending them out early to avoid delays.
  18. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    ^ Very good question. I hope not, but I would think one would have to sign for it since Sprint does that with expensive stuff like phones. I'm curious what others will say as well. TS out
  19. Galaxy Note 8 rumors, specs, thoughts, etc

    I believe that is when the receiver asks for "authorize to not sign for delivery". But I read somewhere that Sprint has a special agreement with UPS to not leave packages when no one is there to sign for them, even if the receiver requests/authorizes it. TS
  20. Galaxy Note 8 rumors, specs, thoughts, etc

    Well the email came in this morning at about 3AM saying package is on its way. So I check with UPS and like jonathanm1978 said it states "Order Proccesed: Ready for UPS". But when I check in the UPS app and log into myUPS, it says it will be delivered tomorrow Friday by end of day. Which historically with UPS could be anytime between 12Pm and 8PM. Lucky for me, someone willbe home tomorrow to sign for it if they come by before I get home from work. I guess T-Mobile isn't the only one sending out Note *s way before the schedule send date. So without further ado, I will sign off with the obligatory universal message.... TS out
  21. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    A while back I had applied to get a Magic Box and was denied. But I logged the number they call me from into my contacts. Tonight I see a missed call from Sprint and that same number. So I call and explained to the rep that I had applied a while back, but didnt say I was denied. She checks my account logs and it states that I have been approved and will be getting a Magic Box in the next couple of weeks. That they will call me again or email with the instructions. It's curious that I'm approved with the same home address. So I guess there is still hope for those that were denied previously. TS out.
  22. Galaxy Note 8 rumors, specs, thoughts, etc

    Once I get a date it comes in. I will have to make sure I take that day off from work to make sure to get it as well. TS
  23. Galaxy Note 8 rumors, specs, thoughts, etc

    I thought I saw somewhere that it mentioned that the Note 8 was shipping out the 5th of Sept to customers. My order form / email states my two notes and a return kit to send back my S8+, but no estimated date of shipment. But tonight I got an email from Sprint saying that they just shipped out the return kit for my S8+ to return back. I thought they usually do that the same day that they ship you your new device. So if true, then I wonder if that means the Note 8 is also shipped.. if true, then... its coming, If not, then I guess Sprint wants me to get the return kit before getting the Notes. Just checked with sprint. They can neither confirm or deny that the phones are also shipped with the kit. TS
