To stop the blocking


Recommended Posts

to stop the blocking of active sites. does it have to be done on an individual basis, or is this something that can be done remotely.

in the atlanta area will the 3g ulgrades be switched on with LTE

I was hoping sprint would flip switch with the launch of the evo

They are only blocking you... rest of us are on 3G LTE

That's not true. They are blocking me too.

what about the nv 3g will they become active once Lte is swithced on

 

It varies from market to market. Sponsors can see which sites are complete and which technology is being broadcast. Like 3G, 4G and 800. 3G going live is not connected to 4G dates necessarily

dont let that 3G icon on your sprint phone fool you!!!!!!

 

No kidding. My Viper display's 3G whether the phone is on 1X or 3G. I wish there was a tweak to add to the stock ROM to change that.

After reading the Chicagoland thread and how they're putting backhaul upgrades on hold to fix the tower handoff issue here, I had a thought... Sprint isn't planning on flipping the 4G switch without the enhanced backhaul right? That would make no sense :P

Not quite what I said. To clarify, Sprint is not putting backhaul on hold. They are speeding up NV site overhauls and allowing them to get ahead of the backhaul schedule. Backhaul is still proceeding per contract and will be connected after it's available at each completed NV site.

 

And you are correct, Sprint will not allow 4G LTE to be connected to legacy T1 backhaul. That would be a disaster.

So are Robert and DanielHolt the same guy.

 

I kind of picture Daniel's head coming out of the kind and thoughtful Robert body like the car commercial. OoooBaby I want that car.... :rolleyes:

 

He is more like the official S4GRU Trunk Monkey...

Hate that... They did it on the new EVO too. Glad the ROM devs fixed it though.

    • Luckily, that hasn't arisen in my area where I am, aside from having B14 (well, ALL of AT&T signal) not work at all in Coosa county, Alabama. I wish there was a service for first responders that would go to ANY available carrier, provider, etc..and in the absolute worst case scenario, would give us service. I've been on an ambulance, trying to find an address, and my driver actually had to pull over and we pulled out a map book and tried to find the road using the "old fashioned way".. and that takes valuable time away that sometimes may be vital to someone surviving. BUT, I will say that I've only seen that in Coosa county... both my Tmo and AT&T phones had zero service and I couldn't get GPS, and neither could my driver (VZW service). Maybe satellite will help with that in those times where that occurs.. but that's an extreme example.     Edit to add: Let me add some context to this.. Coosa county isn't regular coverage area for my job.. so it's not a regular thing that we are dispatched to Coosa county.. and actually, there's been a change and that county now has it's own ambulance service that operates.. so the only time we might receive a request is if it's a multiple casualty scenario, or it's a transfer going home from our contracted hospital.  The way that reads above, it may seem like we are just out without some sort of GPS gadget to direct us on where to go, but for the most part, we know our coverage area pretty well. Dispatch can also give us cross streets for reference inside our coverage area (and our home county). Coosa just isn't a regular area for my job to run in. 
    • "Priority" doesn't mean "exclusivity."  When emergency services don't need B14, AT&T can use it for everyone else.  The trade-off is that when it is needed for emergency services, they not only get all of B14, but they have also arranged for priority on the rest of the AT&T network as well.  Beats having spectrum sitting unused most of the time and then not having enough when disaster strikes, as it could be without a partnership with a wireless company like AT&T. - Trip
    • I've wondered if being on the first responder plan has the priority over other 'regular' lines in the same way firstnet does (or, supposed to do with B14...I've seen normal customers on AT&T hit B14 so it's not {specifically} for Firstnet only)...  
    • T-Mobile prices people pay are all over the map. The free lines are key, so take them if ever offered again.  Your priority level would be a key factor for your price.  Only T-Mobile would know the average prices people pay.  Samsung has been offering very good deals at time of new model introductions so I have gone that route for factory unlocked, which allows me to also have a Verizon priority MVNO for when T-Mobile signal fails or I manually override.
    • I also wanted to post a speed test result.. I only do these once in a while from my home area because we are gonna be the last to see changes, like load balancing.  Right now they are digging all over the place for fiber installs, so I'm not sure what the hold-up is on making the upload speed a little more in-line with download speeds, but here is the most recent from my area:   https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/10133670525
