  1. I just made a small donation. Good luck to everyone.
  2. Essentially a sprint exclusive.

    I also ordered the Essential. The deal for $145 is too good to pass up.
  3. Guys when T-Mobile offers free things it's because they're adding value to the already best unlimited plan. When Sprint offers free things it's because they're desperate and no one uses the free offered service anyways.
  4. The problem is that's the max upload. There's times when I see speedtests with 10Mb/s down and 100Kb/s up.
  5. XFinity Mobile

    I agree - for a single line it' a great deal.

    WiFi calling isn't a big deal to me. I do want a better phone selection than what' currently offered.

    Nice. I might have to look into Xfinity once they allow byod. At my office there is an Xfinity Hotspot available so I'm good there. Their throttled speeds are fine because 1.5Mb/s is basically they same throttle for streaming video that all the carriers use for for non-hd video streaming.
  8. Network Vision/LTE - Houston Market

    Not sure I like the upload speeds on configuration 2 so much. On Clearwire towers, before the configuration change, it wasn't uncommon to see 10Mb/s download speeds with 300-500Kb/s uploads. Now those uploads are around 100Kb/s. Is carrier aggregation coming for uploads? If so are any current phones able to take advantage of that?

    Does using data while on xfinity wifi hotspots count against data? Because that's free data usage if you're on another carrier but have xfinity for home broadband.

    For a single line their price is very competitive (assuming you already have them for home broadband service). Are there any shared plans or discounts for multi lines?
  11. Network Vision/LTE - Houston Market

    Does anyone know if Sprint changed the LTE TDD configuration to configuration 2? I decided to run a speedtest in my office and got 14Mb/s down 2 Mb/s up, where it used to be about 9Mb/s down and 4.5Mb/s up. I'm using a Moto G4 Plus which does NOT have carrier aggregation btw.
  12. Essentially a sprint exclusive.

    That's disappointing if true. Has this been confirmed? https://www.qualcomm.com/news/onq/2017/05/31/snapdragon-835-andy-rubin-essential-new-generation-mobile-devices ^^ This link from Qualcomm which is a promo for the Essential phone mentions HPUE.
  13. I went into my account online and thought I added $0 Premium international Experience the week before I left on the trip. The day before the trip I double checked again, and premium international was still an option so again I added it again to my plan. After both times maybe an hour or two later I did receive a confirmation email that my services were changed. I just checked my account again and the Premium International Experience is still available as an option. It looks like it's not sticking when I select it as an option to add to my plan. This is despite the fact that I do receive confirmation emails that a change to my plan was made (but the email doesn't specify what changed, only that it did change).
  14. Just came back from Montreal for the weekend. My Sprint service worked fine for calls and text, but data was throttled to 2g speeds (speedtests were showing 0.02 Mb/s down and 0.05 Mb/s up). My Unlimited Freedom plan has global roaming, but I thought I was supposed to receive a text to invite me to pay for high speed data passes? I'm using an unlocked Moto G4 Plus, so maybe only Sprint branded phones get that option? In my hotel I was on wifi and looked at my Sprint plan online and didn't see an option for high speed data.
