  1. No, with the public WiFi spectrum that you need for your business or home network.
  2. "For example, Sprint noted that it had recently received tribal review fee demands totaling $90,000 to review antenna modifications at six sites in Chicago." Could someone please explain if this means that Native American tribes, which have no legal presence in Illinois, are somehow holding up the approval process. Or, is this a mis-print? Very puzzled!
  3. Network Vision/LTE - Chicago Market

    The bottom 3 results were also at O'Hare H Concourse, on Thursday morning. Very impressive, especially since they were on my aging GS7. (The top 3 were in Las Vegas, but that's another story for another thread.)
  4. Charlie Ergen, Charlie Ergen, and Charlie Ergen: That would be the case against a merger. He nearly wrecked the Softbank acquisition of Sprint [not that the acquisition has been a total success], and has done or said nothing since that would lead anyone to believe that he would be any more cooperative today. He and Masa would probably get along badly, as both of them would insist on running the whole show.
  5. Samsung Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge User Thread

    Does anyone know what it does???
  6. Samsung Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge User Thread

    Has anyone else noticed that, since the latest update, their GS7/GS7 Edge screen randomly "flashes", and then seems to revert back to what was on display 3 or 4 seconds before the "flash"?
  7. Is it really necessary to be insulting? Especially to a moderator? David is a "real" meteorologist, and also happens to have acquired a huge amount of knowledge about Sprint and the wireless telecom world in general. I don't know about anyone else, but I would be more tolerant of your opinions and posts if you would donate to S4GRU and then take some time to actually learn from some of the very informative Sponsor posts.

    Beta results after Mike fixed the band identification bug. On my GS7 Edge, summary of 718 sectors sighted between 6/10/2017 ~1:00PM CDT and 6/20/2017 ~830AM, between Crystal Lake, IL, and Fenton, MO (mostly rural areas in Illinois along US-20, I-39 and I-55; mostly suburban areas around St. Louis): Clearwire B41: 21 sectors Clearwire B41A2: 24 sectors Sprint B25: 140 sectors Sprint B25A2: 28 sectors Sprint B25A2 10x10: 28 sectors Sprint B26: 142 sectors Sprint B41: 121 sectors Sprint B41 MM: 4 sectors Sprint B41 MMA2: 4 sectors Sprint B41 SC: 3 sectors Sprint B41 TB: 7 sectors (What are these: They aren't in the glossary.) Sprint B41A2: 178 sectors Conclusion: The recent betas are doing a very good job of identifying bands.

    I know the coordinates are there. It would be convenient if Mike could add the geolocated address.
  10. SignalCheck Beta Crew Forum

    I am about to give the Beta a workout, driving from northern Illinois to St Louis and back over 2 days. Should see lots of data. A thought: Mike, would you consider adding geolocation to the "strongest" latitude and longitude points in the data base? Doesn't need to be on screen, but would be very useful in sorting through the data base spreadsheet. Thanks again for all your work.

    And the verdict is . . .?
  12. AT&T 29/39 GHz and "5g" deployment are years away. Sprint 2.5 GHz is now, and is currently expanding, although much slower than most of us would like.
  13. Samsung Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge User Thread

    I'm not using GMap sharing, or any other new features (that I know of). It just seems that since I did the update on 3/29, my battery life has gone to hell. Like SeanK, I'm charging twice a day. Or, I have my phone plugged in to a power supply or portable battery almost full time. Rather disappointing: Before the update, I could easily go all day and evening, and still have 40-50% charge by the time I shut down for the night. Now, if I'm not charging, I'll be in the 30's by lunch.

    Has anyone else noticed a sharp decline in battery life since the last update?
