  1. T-Mobile LTE & Network Discussion V2

    I read somewhere that T-Mobile had 4x2 MIMO on B12. Can anyone confirm here? So far my personal findings come to 2x2.
  2. If they were targeting At&t it wouldn't have taken that much to undercut them. Verizon deliberately brought back unlimited due to T-Mobile, and while still being quite competitive on price.
  3. It shouldn't try to withdraw anything from your account as the balance is $0. That way you still get AutoPay discount while still paying with credit.
  4. From what I've heard, you can still pay with Credit Card, just pay your monthly bill before the AutoPay kicks off.
  5. I think SignalCheck uses APIs for Qualcomm processor as it appears the signals are only read on devices using Qualcomm modems. Try Exynos/Kirin-based devices and you'll have a bad time. I think Mediatek processor (BLU HD R2) worked though so maybe Exynos/Kirin are using newer API that Signalcheck is just not utilizing.
  6. 3mbps is pretty slow. Imagine updating/downloading larger apps from the PlayStore or Apple Store. Something that could be downloaded in seconds is now minutes. I'm going to go ahead and just say that AT&T will discontinue this when it doesn't attract enough customers. The price for that tier of speed doesn't offer the same value that Verizon/T-Mobile give.
  7. Which carrier are you on? Aren't you located in Chicago and on AT&T?
  8. I feel like that's been covered with their B12 and "Extended LTE" advertising.
  9. Crazy to read how many Sprint customers are leaving. Looks like a lot of us depended on the subsidies to stay on Sprint. With that removal and Verizon being basically the same price as Sprint's current unlimited plan (for existing customers), I can understand there's little reason to stick around.
  10. So many permits coming up from all carriers lately. It looks like the site behind Walmart on Phillips Highway is underway an upgrade again (last time it was for Verizon) and only Sprint/VZW is on that site. Maybe they are finally upgrading the Clearwire panels to B41 there? One can hope.
  11. Unfortunately Sprint discontinued RingPlus support so I'm not able to monitor network upgrades on the field at the moment but I am still keeping a close eye on the permits. It looks like once the permit shows up, the upgrade usually takes place within 1 month after the permit is posted/approved. We will see. Their speeds are the only part of the network that needs to be addressed in Jax.
  12. I have seen a few permits for St Johns cty for a Sprint 2.5 lately. About the same rate as T-Mobiles B12 permits.
  13. For the heck of it, I decided to look at the local permits again since it came up in the Marcelo thread. The last Sprint permit posted for St Johns cty was almost a year ago. http://webappserver1.co.st-johns.fl.us/bcc/GrowthManagementServices/Building/WATSWebX/Permit/BLPermit.aspx?PermitNo=11504157&PopUp=1, posted on 8/18/2015 12:15:23 PM.
