Its been pretty exciting lately, first the Note, then the LTE deployment news and Nexus info today! Sounding like a good way to start the year.

 

I'm Ben, live in Phoenix, Been a Sprint fan/customer for 10 years this August.

 

I've been lurking a while, and finally opened up an account cuz I liked the site so much, and I've been referencing it over at androidforums in the Sprint treads, and have heard good feedback. Way to go s4gru!

 

Quick question about the Network Vision upgrade related to 3G: In todays post s4gru mentioned that, "Sprint will be deploying Voice on 800MHz initially in one carrier with Network Vision deployments now under way. Sprint devices with CDMA capability on 800MHz will be able to use them right away." Now, will my Epic 4G Touch be able to take advantage of this when it is rolled out in my area??

 

Thanks again!!

-Ben

Ben. Thanks for the compliments and welcome to the site. The Epic 4G Touch will do voice on 800MHz on Network Vision towers. It will also run 3G on 800MHz, when and if Sprint ever deploys 3G EVDO on 800MHz. However, to run in Sprint's LTE on 800 that will come out in 2013, you will need to upgrade your device.

It's available. I just was waiting to complete Beta 2.0 before committing to a custom domain.

 

The forums have really taken off since we migrated to the new site last weekend. Much more than I imagined. I may have to reconsider waiting.

 

Also, :welcome: I'm glad you were able to sign in. Sorry about the issues you were having.

    • I'm still getting Band 26 and Band 41 from keep sites in Crown Heights and Bay Ridge. I haven't seen any Band 25 though. I'm starting to think T-Mobile shut down Sprint's PCS spectrum here. I wonder if we'll get 5MHz Band 25 + 5MHz n25 carrier or if we'll just get 2 5MHz n25 carriers.
    • Still seeing strong T-Mobile HSPA+ and some weak Sprint B26 (311-490) in the north Bedstuy area Sprint eNB 6705 (40.70091884265787,-73.94344902067445) is broadcasting the keep PLMN Sprint eNB 899078/899079 (40.83022854043739,-73.94830306659236) has been converted, though the site has not yet been lit up. The density up there is pretty insane - 400ft from the site just North, 600ft from the site just South. Spotted another Dish site near City College (1606 Amsterdam Ave). This is not a former Sprint site, and the neighboring Sprint site (across the street) has not been decommissioned. Still not seeing the Dish PLMN in this area.
    • Just cycled through where I'm sitting...not near any keep sites...and 25/26 don't exist...locking to them but.ps me over to AT&T MFBI (why TMo isn't doing 2/25 MFBI here I don't know...maybe Nokia equipment can't do it?). TMo B41 is visible, but Sprint isn't. Two nights ago I saw 10 MHz Sprint B41 at the top of the band. Not sure whether that's live today.
    • Dish has base stations and antennas already set up for n26, and phones are starting to come out supporting that. Yes, it's a 5x5 patchwork, but it can basically provide an anchor for higher-frequency NR that augments n71, which in many places is only 5x5 on Dish.
    • Sprint still alive on all 3 bands here in the South Puget Sound area this morning. Robert
