    4G Information
  1. Huawei Nexus 6P (was [Rumor] Huawei Nexus phone?)

    We had bought a SIM card in Greece from Cosmote in 2015. It was set up on my wife's old AT&T iphone that year. Went back in the summer of 2016 and used it on my Nexus 6p. It worked perfectly. Coverage and sound quality were outstanding. Much better than what I experience with Sprint. Was a bit stingy with the data. Adjusted settings to limit data use. 1 GB cost about 5-10 Euro (can't recall exactly). Don't know about Textra but I didn't use Whatsapp often because it was tied to my SIM card number. Same applies to Textra. Found myself using Facebook messenger most often. Most people there avoid SMS because they still charge for texting. Found it funny that a few people I knew with iphones did not use iMessage because of possibility of the message reverting to SMS. My sister had used mifi in the past. I prefer just using a smartphone. Much simpler and data usage is easier to limit with a smartphone.
  2. Yes it is a good deal. My family will sign up for this plan tonight or tomorrow. Wifey works for Comcast. This is going to cut our bill significantly. You can have up to 5 lines and you can some on unlimited and others per GB. Wife uses a ton of data so she will pay $45 for unlimited. The others don't use much data so they will be $12 per GB combined. I don't think the other 3 people will be using more than 2GB combined. So that would be $45 + $24. $70 for 4 lines is a good deal. They are now on AT&T and pay about $240 per month. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    It seems that almost all the New Jersey people that had posted here have left Sprint. I'm I the only one here still on Sprint? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Huawei Nexus 6P (was [Rumor] Huawei Nexus phone?)

    This phone is just not very durable. Went on an all day hike yesterday at Ricketts Glenn State Park in Northern Pennsylvania where temperatures were in the teens. I was using my Nexus 6p (my backup phone) as a GPS device (Backcountry Navigator App). My main phone now is an iphone 7 plus which I used as a camera yesterday . Both phones were fully charged in the morning and both were in airplane mode most of the day since there was no signal in the area. Both phones were in my pocket. About 6 hours into the hike, the Nexus 6p shut down and could not be successfully restarted. It was showing low battery as the issue. But when I had checked about a half hour before it shut down, the 6p had about 75% battery left. I guess the 6p couldn't stand the cold too well. When it returned to normal indoor temperatures the battery percentage went back up to 70% and it was working just fine. The iPhone handled the cold just fine. There were no issues all day. Android has the advantage in utilizing the GPS with the phone in airplane mode to conserve battery. Which is why Backcountry Navigator only has an android app. Wonder if any other android phone would have worked better in cold temperatures.
  5. Network Vision/LTE - Central and South Jersey Markets

    To my surprise, the last tower around me without LTE just got LTE. I mapped it on Sensorly. It's on the NJ turnpike north of exit 7 but below 195 right behind the rest stop on the water tower. Only problem I have is there are still areas around me without LTE. And the areas with LTE are a weak B26. Hopefully Sprint will continue to improve this area.
  6. Google Hangouts w/Voice (Was Google Voice)

    The only features that I will miss are the low cost international calls using my phone dialer and having my cell phone calls forwarded to my landline phones. Like you said, visual voicemail will work similar to Google voice but will be better integrated with the phone. Low cost international calls can be made with Viber out. Not as convenient as using the dialer but not a bad option. And the call quality on the cell phone is good enough now that forwarding the calls to landline phones is not needed as much. It seems to me that Google will abandon Google voice. Google has not updated the Google voice app in years. It just doesn't seem to have been a priority for Google in many years.
  7. Google Hangouts w/Voice (Was Google Voice)

    I switched over to an iPhone. Found out that the visual voicemail part of the phone app will not work if you use Google voice. This makes sense. You have to pick, either Google voice or the visual voicemail. I disabled Google voice so I can use the visual voicemail. It seems like a really nice feature. I've had Google voice for many years. Maybe it's time to move on?
  8. iPhone 7/7 Plus User's Thread

    After using the iPhone Plus for a few days, these are a couple things I noticed. This phone is quite heavy. It does feel very high quality. The home button is really nice. It really does feel like you are pressing it down. But still prefer the button on the back of the phone. Battery life is really amazing. Way better than the Nexus 6p. But it takes a long time to charge. My battery charging habits have changed as a result. I'm still having trouble with the notification system. This is the biggest change coming from Android and Palm. Palm had the best notification system but the way it works in Android is not bad either. I miss the flashing notification light. The keyboard works well. I usually use SwiftKey in Android. I will eventually give a try on the iPhone. I have a feeling SwiftKey might not work as well on the iPhone but I will find out. It is inconvenient to always have to go to the settings app to make changes. It would be nice if iOS would allow you to access setting options directly from the apps. Setting changes in the control center are limited. But that is a minor gripe. Display looks good despite lower resolution. It works well as a phone. Calls do not drop and call quality is an improvement. It will be nice to use wifi calling but I haven't tried it yet. Speaker is clear and loud but Nexus 6p had better speakers. I really like imessage. Wish something like it would be available on Android. So far, really happy with my new expensive phone but still adjusting to a few things. I really hope to figure out a way to like the notification system.

    I would look at AT&T or Verizon. If you are not happy with Sprint coverage, then you will most likely not be happy T-mobile either. Of course, that is only my opinion.

    Just received my first iPhone ever. 7 Plus Jet Black. Only used Palm and Android phones in the past. I hope I will like it. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

    Yes, I have the same issues. But I think I'm going to stick around. My framily plan is really good and I like the Google voice integration. I've been with Sprint since 2000 I think. I can totally understand if you want to jump ship. If you are unhappy, you should. I have had some voice problems at my house with my Nexus 6p. Almost all calls get dropped but only from inside and outside my house. Everywhere else is good. I called Sprint and tweeted Marci, Marcello and Sprint care a few days ago. No response. I ordered a new phone. I will then see if it is my Nexus or the network. No one I know near me has Sprint. My family has AT&T. Will see what happens but that is something, if not resolved, would encourage me to leave. Thanks to Google voice integration my landlines also ring and I can have a successful phone call. But it shouldn't have to be this way. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

    I haven't seen any. I really doubt any new towers are coming any time soon. Sprint is focused more on small cells right now. And mostly in urban areas. I don't see rural and suburban areas getting much focus this year or next. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

    This tower on Rt. 38 and 206 has B41. I can't imagine there is any reason a crane would be there for Sprint? T-Mobile is really bad in this area. Perhaps they are getting an upgrade. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  14. Tower issues.

    Did the issue with the tower ever get corrected? I'm having problems with dropped calls at my house with my Nexus 6p. It's been a problem for about 3 weeks. Want to see if these methods made a difference. I called Sprint a week ago. Still having problems. Sent a tweet last night.
