  1. Essentially a sprint exclusive.

    That's typical. Just don't reinsert a sprint sim or it'll lock it like it did to you. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk

  3. As someone who predominately uses T-Mobile, I've run into many many L1900 4x2/4 + L1700/2100 4x4 / 2x2 + B12 sites where speeds average in the 5-10 mbps range while others are speedy > 40-50 mbps with not that many between the two extremes. Where I get B41 on Sprint it matches or exceeds T-mobile most of the time which is the primary issue. In terms of usable coverage and data speed reliability, Sprint is not there in most regions. Far too many edge of cell B25 / 26 areas and RF deadzones still exist. These are perfect areas for small cell infills they're deploying or new macro sites whereas T-mobile has the density and coverage but need more capacity (split sectors / small cells / B66 or 71).
  4. Essentially a sprint exclusive.

    If you at any point put a sprint sim into an essential phone it'll UICC locked it. You're SOL since you did that and have to wait til 50 days to request a DSU unlock. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk

    Did you at any point put the sprint sim back in after it was UICC unlocked? Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  6. sprint network 2018 predictions

    They're not going to announce any dates for anything. They've got burnt far too many times since 2011. Ie. We already know and have found new LTE only expansion areas with no previous sprint coverage but it's not publicized anywhere. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk

    [PSA] "GEN 3" Magic Boxes Incoming Will be called ASPANMBGN2 or GEN2. Really Generation 3 if one goes by chronological order of ASP540 GEN1, ASP 545 GEN2. Biggest change is exterior looks, display (LCD), and external portable battery pack like the GEN1 MB 540.
  9. Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    82 / 17. Yes. If you mean the old Samsung dual mode radios then yes if they are fed the same backhaul. Mini Macros / pico cells are limited to 40 MHz (20+20) if given the backhaul.

  11. Essentially a sprint exclusive.

    Some do some don't. Mine didn't but I paid it off and it automatically UICC unlocked a day and a half later and works fine with my tmobile Sim now. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
