Oh yes, I've driven that roads for years and years and years. And my phone said Sprint while Field Test showed Bands 2 & 17. My friends phone was showing Sprint 3G only.

Did you try an airplane mode toggle on either of the two phones?

Nope. Didn't want to lose my LTE data.

Maybe try it next time and let us know what happens. It would be really interesting if the phone latched onto AT&T LTE over Sprint CDMA.

I'm on my way back that way now. It was a day trip to LA.

Actually, the slow ping times made it a bit of a drag, but Tapatalk works great.

I just came back from Vegas after spending a week there for work. Few things did improve. I was staying at the Mandalay Bay and almost 90% I was on Wifi there automatically. Phone automatically connected me to Wifi called 'CDOBM connected via Mobilitie Wi-Fi'

Several areas on the strip are still horrible for data.

Good to know. I assume this was a Passpoint network and it won't work on Pixels/Nexus as usual?

Back in Vegas again. Shocking to say this but I've noticed a bit of an improvement. Areas before where data was useless before actually works this time. Wow!

B26 or higher B25 maybe? Or More B41?

I remember most of the casinos having useless 3G. Is that still the case?

We lost a phone so my current sprint device is an iPhone 4. If things change, I will be able to test it.

I'll be in Vegas next Monday for work, so if I can, I'll try to see if there is 15x15 B25. Out in Pahrump we are still limited to 10x10 B25.

Same to you! It’s refreshing to hear that sprint has invested in their network over the hump.

My primary device is a TMO iPhone X. I do have a current generation Sprint iPad, but don’t know how to check my connectivity type with/without the magic box turned on.

Invest? I wish. Other than replacing existing equipment with Network Vision and then Tri-band antennas, it's still the same as it was pre-2015 when LTE first went live. The same 2 sites still serve all of Pahrump. I was told that they won't expand service here "because of the pending merger". I wish they would change their mind about that.

Now I can't complain too much because overall quality of the Sprint network has improved drastically since I switched to Sprint 8 years ago. For areas undercovered by Sprint LTE, roaming on TMO LTE has helped a lot too.

CDOBM stands for Carrier Data Offload By Mobilitie.  It is a Passpoint enabled network where carriers in partnership with Mobilitie can have their subscribers securely auto-authenticate for an unlimited Wi-Fi experience and QoS for Wi-Fi calling.
