  1. LG V30

    I read a review that stated the bloatware on the V30 was out of control. I was in a Sprint store today and handled a V30. I didn't see any bloatware on it. Is there anything to that story? I'm planning on buying one soon. Sprint only carries the V30+ so now I'm thinking of buying the V30 from the LG website. The Sprint store didn't have any in stock today or I'd have that one now. It's time for me to make a decision. Sprint store or LG online. Your thoughts please.
  2. The 850 MHz LTE Sprint network is so congested in De Soto MO. I also have proof on my SDR Radio. My SDR Radio can only show 1.920 MHz of the 5 MHz wide LTE Signal.
  3. sprint upgrade

    hey guys i am due for a upgrade today....i am curious on the opinions of others of what phone is a great phone... any opinions are welcome !
  4. Root?

    hey guys i m curious what you guys think about rooting phones and the positives and negatives about it.... let the discussion begin!
  5. Found this a bit after the major Motorola FCC certification. FCC ID: IHDT56QG6 LTE Bands: 2/4/5/12/17/25/26/41 CDMA BC: 0/1/10 GSM: 850/1900 WCDMA Bands: 2/4/5 5.6 inches x 2.83 inches Category 4 UE no carrier aggregation Rumors have it that the Moto G 2015 and Moto X 2015 will be launched at the same time.... and now we have two distinct Motorola certifications of devices for Sprint with one being high end Cat 6 UE and one being a lower end Cat 4 UE... Hmm..
  6. 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.
  7. I'm sure everyone remembers the free night and weekend minutes we had years ago. This morning I was thinking what if a carrier took that same idea but instead made for it data. I think that if a carrier was able to implement this that it would be big and a game changer. What do you guys think?
  8. Google Project Fi

    Had not seen a thread for this yet, I see some definite consumer advantages with Sprint's Network combined with TMob and Wi-fi. I have had many Nexus devices and I love my Nexus 6, although it is a bit big. The price is good for the service. ($20 / unl talk/txt, $10/gb) I hope the technical aspects work as they propose. I am a Google Voice Number user and love the "Any device" call capability and use it on my Tablet, Chromebook and phone. I rarely actually answer my Phone at the house. Answer the tablet or Chromebook..... I love Sprint's network, the upgrades they are putting forth and this Site, but if Project Fi works as advertised, it might lure me to sign on..... What are everyone's thoughts?
  9. Hi, (To moderators) Please move this thread if you think it fits better in another category. Thanks. So I noticed Sprint recently deployed B25 at the tower near(ish) my house (located in Northern Virginia). I'm picking up B25 intermittently on the top level and outside. Even without B25, I am satisfied with the quality of service in my area. The one thing I wish Sprint could do is stay more up to date with the new BlackBerry phones. I like my Q10 but am bummed they never released the Z10 or Z30. There has been a tweet or two from Mr. Claure hinting there may be a new Sprint-BlackBerry release coming. This could be referring to the Classic or upcoming Leap, but it's anyone's guess at this point. Sprint has been pretty cautious in recent years about releasing BlackBerry phones. I'm not sure if that is going to continue now and into the future. T-Mobile is in talks with BlackBerry about selling their phones again. Even without this, there is the ability to bring an unlocked phone to TMO because they are a GSM carrier. So, I bought a used Z10 off of eBay last night. I'm going to purchase a prepaid plan and try the service for a month. But, I'm expecting TMO's service to be satisfactory as well.. I have a tablet that can connect to TMO's network and the service is pretty good overall. What should I do? In your opinion, is there advantage to one carrier or the other? I'm going to also post this on CrackBerry. Perhaps this post would be somewhat more relevant there. Thanks, Mark
  10. So i figured out that Target in my local area uses Sprint for public wifi, and even possibly for its devices connection to Minneapolis. How common is this to see? Its obviously it is wimax due to higher pings 75-100 usually, and speeds 2-6mbps. And what will happen once wimax shuts off?
  11. 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.
  12. Sprint will guarantee $200 per mobile device trade and up to $350 per line of ETF/Installment payments per line. Shifting towards competing more and more against T-Mobile: http://newsroom.sprint.com/news-releases/sprint-guarantees-t-mobile-customers-200-minimum-trade-in-value-for-their-smartphone-and-up-to-350-per-line-to-cover-switching-costs.htm?view_id=9619 Thoughts?!
  13. If you shop at Target and need a new phone, download cartwheel, and get 20% off on any sprint phone, plus get a minimum $100 gift card towards the phone if you do a trade in. Pretty good deal!
  14. The closest Sprint tower to my house is about 3.5 miles away. In between are hills, trees, a handful of houses, and fields. However, I do have line of sight. I can see the blinking light of the tower in the distance at night. I do not think Sprint has deployed any LTE at this tower. When they do, is it possible that the LTE signal would reach my house? Right now I have a Moto X, but I may go back to the Q10. I do pick up eHRPD at my house. What frequency is that on? I'm thinking Sprint's 800ish mhz LTE band might. Not sure about 1900 though.. Thanks
  15. Many of us hate the tiny coverage tool, so here are some HD images of Sprint's Spark coverage. Clearwire 10/29/15: Full Resolution (10786 x 5798) 5/18/15: Full Resolution (5350 x 2850) 11/1/14: Full Resolution (5350 x 2900) Sprint map last updated: 5/18/15
  16. With the introduction of the new plans Sprint has announced. I told one of my friends about the $60 unlimited plan and she was shocked yet happy about it. She currently has T-Mobile and there has been times where my Sprint service has out performed her service even in the city with puling up information and out of town...well... you already know how that went. She was talking about switching and stuff but then she sent me a typical article bashing Sprint and I got irritated by it and I had to explain to her that Sprint is not bad at all. These articles are based on past experiences from 3+ years ago. I told her I'm pulling 60+ mbps on LTE but she's worried about Sprint being slow ( because of what she read). Guys give me some advice on persuading her to give Sprint a chance. I feel like articles that are being posted is what keeps away customers. It makes no sense that T-Mobiles 2g network is not spoken about when they are in the news for changes to plans and such. But good ol Sprint makes changes and articles that get posted rips Sprint apart for filth.
  17. HTC One E8

    So got on YouTube this morning and this came up!HTC One E8: http://youtu.be/6nL5QoFIEGA
  18. I am presently customer of the old Clearwire for home internet service. By twist of fate, there are no other high-speed internet providers in my area - NOTHING! - unless you consider satellite services. Clearwire was reluctant to give me a CLEAR EXPRESS HUB and sign me up originally because my home is literally shown to be in a marginal area of service. My lot was shown to be covered but not the adjacent lots (not sure how that happens?). Anyway, they gave me the modem and I experience around 6 Mbps downloads and 1 Mbps uploads (with an outside antenna). For someone coming off dial-up and satellite (Wildblue) these speeds were terrific! I am happy! I understand my service is not as good as many others, but for this area it is fabulous! With the recent announcements that Clearwire's Wimax service will be phased out by the end of 2015 - I am on pins and needles waiting for the other shoe to drop. I live in Canal Winchester (suburb of Columbus, OH) and would be devastated If I lost my Clearwire service and we are not part of some Sprint LTE upgrade that will allow us to obtain high-speed internet when Clearwire goes away Why isn't Sprint more open about their future plans to provide service to areas they acquired from Clearwire, including types of services and time frames other then generalities that I sometimes see published. The tower I ping off of is located in Columbus (moderate density housing) and I have to believe that Columbus (15th largest city in the USA) would be near the top. The tower is 3 to 4 miles away.

  20. I've been a fanboy of Sprint ever since I got my Palm Prē in October of 2009. I had left AT&T because my iPhone 3GS was stolen, and because precentral.net peaked my interest in WebOS. So I used those reasons to take the opportunity switch to Sprint. Plus, I like their yellow colour. It's nice to look at. I had devoted a lot of time (and money) to WebOS over those long and exciting months. Staying up late at night on community forums and chat sessions waiting for OTA's to be downloadable. Testing them out, and raving about "How exciting this, and that was.) I was so devoted to WebOS and Sprint that I had had great success with many family members and friends, switching then to Sprint and Palm's WebOS. About 6 months in, I had discovered SprintUsers. They had an mediocre community. 30% of the high volume contributors were intelligent. The rest didn't seem to have graduated middle school language arts. I liked what I saw, save for those rampant bad apples. And I liked what I heard while listening to the SprintUsers podcast. The podcasters and their guests, most of whom were employees, were fun to listen to at the time. It was an informative and compelling podcast that I'd like to see recreated here in some form or another through S4GRU. PODCAST LOCATED HERE: http://www.sprintusers.com/category/podcast/ Is anyone up to the challenge? I'd love to see it happen. Whether a staff member heads it, or a devoted forum contributor wants to, it doesn't matter to me as long as it gets up and running. Might there be a reason not to? Would it be 'too much' public exposure? I'm thinking that SprintUsers were told sternly by the top brass to "quit it" or get a pink slip. A reason was never given on the forums (that I could find) as to why it was unceremoniously shut down. I know that my posts as of late haven't been as valuable as I'd like them to be. Normally 1 sentence one-liners, but I'd hope that I can reshape my image in the future with more well thought out posts, that contribute to & further a discussion. Not just adding my 2¢, (with statements valued as such) just for the heck of it. Please consider this seriously. Everyone. S4GRU has the gravitas and the calibre to achieve prestige at such heights of theVerge, & Engadget. If it doesn't happen for two months for the sake of being well planned by the Staff, I'd be okay with that. As long as it gets going. It should be a monthly show, say, before, or after the monthly Community Summit chat? (I don't think "summit" is the right word)
  21. Ericsson RRUS31 B25 + RRUS11 B26 These are the newest and greatest remote radio units to come from Ericsson. The new Ericsson RRUS31 B25 should be fairly distinctive compared to the earlier RRUS11s and now the RRUS12s being deployed by ATT and Verizon. One of these new RRUS31s can do the job of two earlier RRUS11s thus reducing deployment costs for Sprint and complexity in deploying new sites and making it easier for users to spot as there are now 4 jumpers coming out of one RRUS31 rather than two from each RRUS11 that Ericsson originally deployed. All future deployments will be utilizing the new Ericsson RRUS31s. In addition Ericsson are sending crews to their original deployments and swapping out older RRUS11s for these new RRUS31s due to the aforementioned fact that one RRUS31 can do the job of 2 RRUS11s. Weight savings will be significant at sites where there are 4 or 5 RRUS11 B25s that can be replaced by one or 2 RRUS31s. The Ericsson RRUS31 deployment project is known as the 65 Mhz Project. Ericsson RRUS11 B26 top and RRUS31 B25 bottom Ericsson High Capacity / 4x2 MIMO Deployment Note the additional antenna + PCS radio. Previously Ericsson utilized additional PCS radios and used RF combiners for high capacity setups where they utilized three or more PCS radios. This new setup will utilize a completey new antenna + radio set just like Samsung and run 4x2 MIMO on the LTE antenna / radio set. Ericsson RRUS11 B25 [EOL'd] and B26 A standard Ericsson Network Vision 1.0 site with 3 RRUS11s where two are dedicated to PCS and one to SMR. This type of setup is no longer deployed or utilized in new sites. Existing sites will be slowly converted to newer RRUS31 B25 via the Sprint 65 mhz project. Ericsson NV high capacity site [EOL'd] 3 or 4 PCS RRUs are present for a total of 4 or 5 RRUS11s per antenna.

  22. Calling 611

    When I call 611, it redirects me to the Sprint Zone Self-Service on my phone. How can I talk to a customer service rep?
  23. I know someone on here might be able to help, but I have a Sprint iPad mini (1st gen) and I have been swapping between my Sprint SIM card that came with the device and a TMobile SIM. This past time when I reinstalled the Sprint SIM I was able to purchase data, but then the reprovisioning kept failing. I cannot use the data. I tried resetting the iPad completely, and that did not work. I restored the iPad as new and that also did not work. I also noticed that the iPad kept going from Sprint 3G to 1x over and over, even in an area with full LTE. I called Sprint support and they said that they could not handle anything prepaid (which was shocking), but when I pushed a bit on them, they helped troubleshoot. Still, nothing has worked. I will call Apple this evening if nothing else, but I am traveling for Memorial Day, so it would have been nice to have extra data on the iPad. Anyways, does anyone have any thoughts? I am thinking it may be a hardware issue, but it does not appear to be a SIM card issue. Still in the car on a long trip from NYC to Ohio for a wedding reception and visiting the in-laws.
