  1. I feel like this is one of things that if we say it more than three times it will happen.
  2. Sprint partnering with CVS would be amazing. Near me, the DC Costco could also use a couple of Magic Boxes. One can wish!

    iPhone 8, 8+, X announced

    Thanks for all the help. Does my HTC U11 sim work in the X or do I need to stop by a corporate store to get one? I think I am going to bite the bullet for now. I'm giving into loads of why are you 'green' comments.

    iPhone 8, 8+, X announced

    So I guess the question now is... how long do we expect it will take for another model to be announced? Aren't the 's' usually less than a year from initial release?

    iPhone 8, 8+, X announced

    Hi all! I'm torn. Should I upgrade to an X or wait for the next model? I need a break from Android, but my inner-nerd is worried at how inferior the radios are to my HTC U11.
  6. I am excited to see them expand. I hope they can convince Sprint corporate to invest more in Western Loudoun County which still has gaping holes from Purceville to the west.

    HTC U11

    Just upgraded. No calling plus.

    HTC U11

    I feel like we are the forgotten device again. I wish Sprint had a software release tracker like T-Mobile.
  9. His departure from Altice was also tied to the heavy debt they took on during his acquisition spree, but another thing he accomplished was 'stabilizing' ALU before selling it to Nokia. That is a bit more worrisome for me.
  10. Shares halted. News pending. Edit: A little underwhelming, but we have a new President and CFO. http://ih.advfn.com/p.php?pid=nmona&article=76409307&adw=1126416
  11. Speeds have definitely increased in the Logan Circle (DC) area even on legacy Clearwire equipment, but I think that is mostly due the config change. The business district (K St) continues to struggle, but I did notice either a new tower in Metro Center is online or Macy's installed a Sprint DAS because I had consistent B25 service throughout the store. Previously, I'd drop to 1x or no service. Like you I hope we get a clearer picture on the next earnings call. I also keep watching this page to see if Sprint signs an agreement with DC Gov for small cells: https://octo.dc.gov/page/small-cells
  12. I'd hope by 2020 our phones will be primarily using VoLTE for voice supported by USCC/AT&T LTE roaming. I rarely use VZW 1x anymore unless I'm in very certain spots.

    Calling Plus (VoLTE "Lite")

    It's a mix, but I think their biggest concern is taking a hit on their voice reliability scores. That said, I agree they should just open up VoLTE as a 'beta' program which is what they are sort of doing now with Calling Plus. I believe the full VoLTE IMS is already stood up and functioning with some iPhones and Calling Plus. Either way, we are getting closer!

    Network Vision/LTE - Tampa Market

    Mobilitie has filed their 48 hour work notice for the six sites they seek to install on public RoW. Sadly, the work won't be complete until the end of March. Hoping the schedule holds!

    Calling Plus (VoLTE "Lite")

    And us HTC U11 users wallow in the old days.
