Information about S4GRU Sponsorship levels and how to become a Sponsor

Recommended Posts

I donated and still don't have access. I just want to see if I have LTE in Cedar Falls, IA yet.

I only received one donation this morning from PayPal, and it wasn't for you. Please send me a message with the donation information, or forward to me the email your received from PayPal to s4gru@herronweb.com.

 

Thanks.

Robert (site admin) is currently in the moving process so membership level changes might take a little longer than usual.

 

EDIT: Robert beat me to it, kinda.

Just sent some dough your way! I love the forum site and would like to become active in providing Information. I have a Sprint Tower that I think has NV upgrades on it and will shoot some pics over.

 

Thanks!

Thanks for a lot of good info.  Sent a small donation, will look at sending more when I can (gotta love having all kinds of emergencies and big house repairs at once).

 

Anyway, thanks for all of the information and technical insight, it's nice to be able to keep on top of things and know what's going on.

I didn't see your donation come thru PayPal. Message me the details and I will get your account upgraded. Thanks for supporting S4GRU.

If I upgrade to premier, is there information for 800 LTE rollout a to specific sites? What about information regarding if a site has had backhaul upgrades? Thanks.

You can tell if a site has had its backhaul upgraded because LTE will be live. As for LTE 800, we do have info on many Samsung markets and and a few Ericsson markets in the Premier Sponsor section. I have more info to post in there, but will not be able to for probably another week or two.

Figured I should donate since I've gotten so much good info from this site. Plus with sites actually going live in the Phoenix east valley area it will be good to know what sites have been accepted so that I can plan some Sensorly mapping trips...

You were upgraded immediately.  You don't need a new password once you become a Sponsor.  You should be able to get right into Sponsor forums now.  If you still have a problem, sign out, close your browser and relaunch it and sign back in.

Robert, did you get my donation? I didn't get a message. Or is that only for the first few?

I did. We do upgrades immediately. But I usually don't get around to sending thank yous for a few weeks. I'm really buried with thank yous now. I think I have to go back to early August at this point. :blush:

 

Thank you for supporting S4GRU!

I just donated! :D I felt that I needed to donate for all the help and info I received from this site and its community. I would've done it earlier but those college tuition fees can really leave your wallet empty :P

Thanks Rai.  You have been with us for a long time.  Even before there was S4GRU.com.  I will never forget that!  I still remember your report of the WiMax Protection Site in Kankakee, Illinois.  Good stuff!

Been browsing the site for a long while. I finally decided to join. Im in Shreveport, LA where we are having the Tri band issue. This is not a launched LTE area but LTE is being turned on gradually. Felt I needed to spend more time here and access the sponser maps. Donated a bit ago and look forward to getting upgraded and getting more information and helping my fellow sprint users. Thanks.

Just made a small donation today.  Didn't put my user name in.  Email account from paypal different, so don't know if I need to do anything to get it updated.  Please advise & Thanks for the great site & information.

Just sent my donation. If I need more to be a premier let me know. I'll probably do another in a month or so. Ive learned a few things and stuck with Sprint because of this site and now I am happy I did.

I can't answer your questions about PRL's, but I can help out with the sponsor info.

 

Any amount of money donated makes you a sponsor, and that membership lasts for 6 months from your most recent donation. In order to become a premier sponsor, you must accumulate a donation total of at least $100 (although, due to a holiday promotion, you can become a premier sponsor by donating a total of $75 if you donate by midnight tonight). Premier sponsorship does not expire and you get all the benefits a regular member, a sponsor, and a premier sponsor get.

 

Hope this helps!

      I'm REALLY frustrated trying to figure out how to become a premiere sponsor. I assume this means a certain dollar amount of donation... I already donated a couple times for the 'basic' sponsorship, but would LOVE to be a premiere sponsor...yet I can't find anything on how much I need to donate to do it. Having to jump through such hoops to donate money makes it really easy for me to just want to give up and move on to something else.
       
      I'm sure the info is here somewhere, but a search of the forums turned up nothing, and I can't seem to find an email address to contact the admins to send a question, which would also be useful.
       
      This seems to me to be a HUGE hole and likely throwing away a lot of money by not making this information easily accessible. You'd get a lot more donating members if you maybe put a couple notes below the donation button so people have an idea of what they need to donate to get to x access level, or a link to a page that says if you donate this you get this.
       
      With that suggestion in place.... what's the answer? :-)

      I would like to become a sponsor and rather pay using bitcoin. Will you be accepting bitcoin in the future?
       
      One site that may be able to help you accept bitcoin is https://bitpay.com/

    • Do any of the experts around here how much of the Sprint network assets will be reusable by another carrier, eg the mythical 4th player, let's call them Dish? 1. EPC 2. eNodeB 3. RRH 4. Routers 5. Back-end infrastructure (customer facing and internal business servers)    
    • Ok I've now set up my third A4 and it doesn't seem to be getting a WAN connection. The WAN light is blinking green (same sequence of lights after about 12 hours). It's plugged in directly to my Netgear cable modem (which is not a router, just a modem). Can anyone assist? Thank you in advance.
    • I don't believe so. None of the Airaves have. I also heard that 1x HD Voice does not work on any device which supports VoLTE (including devices which support it but don't have it enabled yet, such as the S9). It has something to do with the way calls are routed in the backend, VoLTE capable devices are routed differently than non-VoLTE ones. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
    • Thank you!  After my initial experience when the A4 was first set up and my phone did not stay consistently connected to it, I went back to their residence about 5 hours later (and I also updated the profile & PRL on my phone) and my phone latched on and stayed connected to the A4 for the entire time I was there (about 2 hours).  During my initial experience 5 hours earlier, I made a Sprint to Sprint test call on the A4 and HD Voice was not working (HD Voice does work in their area on the macro network).  I forgot to make a test call during the time I was there 5 hours later.  Does the A4 support HD Voice for Sprint to Sprint calls? 
    • For mine it took about 1-2 days before phones would even see it in neighbors. Then they started connecting to it about a day later. Basically, I think there's some sort of automatic integration that has to go occur at the network level. I say this because when it was finished, my MB had changed PCIs. I think anytime a device like this comes online, all the others like it in an area change PCIs. Small cells behave the same way. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
