Well i made a pretty hardcore rant about my phone and service but i guess it was to.....angry? so it got deleted. no problem no problem ill just keep this post straight to the point.

 

now on to the post!

 

Well to make the story short i broke my phone. i thought it was done for but i called the line holder and it turns out that recently they upgraded all lines with TEP and my phone was also covered. so i went ahead and filed my claim and paid $100 for a replacement phone (sanyo zio).

 

yeah i though $100 was alot but the phone has $150 towards an upgrade in 4 months so i was like CRAP will they take a broken phone? probbly not so i just went ahead and paid for the replacement.

 

So my main question is. will doing this interfear with my Upgrade?

 

 

Also i would like to note that i placed the order on the first of this month (sunday) and today (the 2nd) i have not recieved a tracking number for my phone and i dont think my credit card has been charged.

 

I would also like to note than on the sprint website it explicitly stated that the Sanyo Zio was not covered under TEP but when i called Asurion they said i would be able to get a replacement (so i placed my order)

 

 

so uhh i guess there is like 2 or 3 questions here. just awnser in any order if you can. thanks.

No. TEP is contracted out to asurion. It is separate and has no affect on upgrades.

Yes i understand that but what about getting a different phone as a replacement? yes i know it will be the same model but it will not be the same phone i got at the end of 2010.

 

I think activation of the new/refurb phone may be a problem........

If they have the same phone available in stock (and they keep refurbs long after EOL in many cases), then you will get the same device. If they are out of stock, they will replace it with one they deem the best equitable or better device that they have in inventory.

*sigh*

 

Yes, Dannible told you that above. An insurance claim does not affect upgrades at all.

 

Since your questions have been answered, I am closing this thread.

    • Update just showed up for both of my phones. So far I don't notice any difference, LTE TA is still reporting as 0, I was hoping the new routine might fix that. I sent a diag report from both phones in case you need any of that info. I'll let you know in a day or so if its crashing as frequently or not. 
    • A new SignalCheck Pro beta release is rolling out now, and should become available on Google Play shortly! Some notable changes: New "swipe to refresh" -- flick down on the main screen, and the data will "refresh" -- I put this in quotes because it will *not* force the modem to be polled (that's unfortunately not possible), but it will 'wake up' the app and display the latest information if for some reason your screen did not automatically update. I am still working on improving this. New cell identification methods for Android 12+ devices -- new routines are available in Android 12 and this is my first attempt at implementing them. I have not seen any changes positive or negative on my Pixel 6, but hopefully someone sees improvements. I will continue exploring these methods and adding new features as I get them working. Location service auto-restart -- if your location has not changed in 10 minutes, the background location service should restart itself. This is a work in progress that I intend to optimize during beta testing. Missing/invalid TAC values included in web uploads -- this will need some testing, because I can't replicate it myself. The option to log cells with missing TAC must be enabled for this to have an impact. Feedback welcome as always!
    • Another converted keep site: Sprint eNB 9436 -> T-Mobile eNB 895067 (40.60777246698788,-74.16199692361377) Looks like they're using the FFVV-65A-R2-V1 here, as well!   Edit: Also, I know this technically isn't NYC, but here's a Jersey City conversion. Not 100% sure on either eNB. Sprint eNB 105863 -> T-Mobile eNB 876452 (40.72265196811989,-74.08804945021805)
    • More confirmations incoming! T-Mobile eNB 880561 (40.74176835140717, -73.88364207139453)   Sprint eNB 6191 / T-Mobile eNB 880065 (40.71339007010928, -73.85695387371624) Confirmed this site but was unable to get a photo because the antennas are set back from the edge of the building. I could see them from super far away but there wasn't a good area for me to pull over and snap a pic.   Sprint eNB 6189 / T-Mobile eNB 877995 (40.71183894845567, -73.83529788316665)   Sprint eNB 253741 / T-Mobile eNB 875537/875538 (40.70170960850086,-73.83302208208359)   Sprint eNB 79912 / T-Mobile eNB 875989 (40.86349197342981, -73.923456682535) — — — — — T-Mobile eNB 880536 in the Bronx isn't a Sprint conversion but rather, T-Mobile changed the eNB when they upgraded the site. The nearest Sprint site at 40.8150405321864, -73.93010756429787 still has all of its antennas up and is literally within spitting distance of two other T-Mobile sites in an area that's very industrial as opposed to residential or commercial so a keep site isn't particularly necessary. You can see on Cellmapper that the old eNB stopped broadcasting about two days after the new eNB went live.  — — — — — Also wanted to add that I spotted AT&T C-band antennas quite a bit in both Queens and the Bronx. I would expect a summer C-band launch announcement from them because they're moving FAST. At least in my area, it seem like they're upgrading at a faster pace than Verizon is. Some more pics: AT&T eNB 116408 / T-Mobile eNB 42887 in Woodhaven. This one is interesting because T-Mobile upgraded this site but in the process didn't put any Ericsson n41 antennas. There are just two of the RFS antennas that we normally get.   AT&T eNB 112047, bad pic but the arrows on the billboard are pointing right at the C-band antenna lol   — — — — — Last edit I promise: I noticed T-Mobile submit a permit to convert the keep site I found in Staten Island (Sprint eNB 75141). I 100% guessed it's location since I connected to it literally 4.5 miles across the water while inside a building. Glad to see I was right!
    • Support for the -1 TAC is good to go now, so I'm ready whenever you are!
