    Interesting. It reads as Intel will be ready, at the earliest, 2019. It makes me wonder about Apple's ability to incorporate the new chipset by 2019 since they engineer and spec their phones 12 to 24 months out. I would say it would be the fall of 2020 before a 5G iPhone is available.

    It is in Murfreesboro. It is close to NW Broad and Memorial. Unfortunately I believe they took the sign down with all of the road construction.

    Was your phone able to update? If it did, did it help?
  5. iPhone 7/7 Plus User's Thread

    Yes, the iPhone model for Verizon is the same model that Sprint uses. All that is needed is switching the SIM card.

    There was an update to 30.1 when I updated my 6S+ to iOS 11.1. I was promted as soon as the update for iOS was complete. maybe that will help. PRL is 55064

    Congrats. Ordered a new iPhone today from Apple. Currently the expected delivery date is 12/7.

    I am not sure what the problem is with the upgrade eligibility. The Sprint app says I am eligible today to upgrade. Maybe changing my plan a couple of weeks ago reset something. I was aware that AutoPay saves five dollars a month but it is something I do not want. To me, it gives a company access to my checking account. With the data breaches that are happening around the world (not with Sprint... yet) and an issue that happened with Sprint a few years ago with the account, I prefer to not relinquish the control.

    I am a little frustrated with Sprint today. I tried to order a new iPhone this morning through the Apple Store App and received a message that I needed to cancel a plan change in order to resolve. I called the number and was told that Sprint needed to reconfigure the Unlimitied Freedom plan I changed to a few weeks ago to be able to purchase a new phone. Then the CSR wanted me to move to auto pay (no thanks) and tried several other items that I did not want to move forward with. If I am going to buy a new phone at full price, why in the hell do I need to go through these additional steps. Should I not be able to bring a Sprint compatible phone to activate without any hoops or hassles?

    No. Only thing said is a significant investment in the network.

    Section 303
  15. Most places where there are large congregations of people, it is a challenge for the network. If you tired over the weekend, it would be even worse. B41 has been deployed but not sure on 3CA (still on a 6S+). Some areas are much slower due to the population density. Downtown Nashville can very slow due to the growth, addition of new high rise buildings and events. I ran a speedtest in my office this morning and it was ok. On B41, 10.7dn, .78 up.
