So,a question. Once LTE is officially launched do people still have to toggle airplane mode a few times to connect or does it connect like the old WiMax (automatically when nearby) ?

Great.. That answers it. For a moment I was scared that Sprint expected people to 'toggle to use' .

It'll depend on where you are in the scan schedule how quickly your phone will flip on over to LTE. If you are patient enough, and have a good enough signal, it will switch on it's own. If you have a very marginal signal, or just entered an area with signal and want LTE right now, you may have to toggle.

 

Especially in a market with extremely spotty coverage like LA right now, I would expect there are many areas like this. As more towers are turned on/upgraded, it won't be an issue.

 

Though, as some have stated elsewhere, the EVO does have issues connecting, but seeing as more people have GS3's than EVO's, it probably won't be as noticeable.

I'm looking at Sensorly maps of LA area and there's hardly any LTE there given the launch. Compare your map with that of SF Bay Area, and you'd think SF has more LTE than LA.

 

Actually the LA market hasn't launched yet. If I remember right, I don't think they even soft launched yet.

There is LTE in Reseda,Woodland Hills,Canoga PArk,Burbank,San Fernando and also some people have reported in Pacoima and Northridge...but those last two are not in the map.But La is being turned on very fast.

SF definitely has more than LA. Just look at the maps.

Nothing yet.. In fact nothing south of the 101 freeway and/or Ventura Blvd. yet except a few hundred feet on a few streets and two notable blotches right on downtown LA.

EDIT: Since posting.. It seems downtown LA has 'blossomed' this evening...

Yeah baby!!!!

LTE is alive in Downtown LA Civic Center area. I ran Sensorly about an hour ago, and it looks like it captured the LTE signal from my location.

 

I'll try to do a slow drive by Staples when I leave the office to see if LTE is there.

      Even though Sprint doesn't have the best coverage in my area. I do have lots of memories and nostalgia with the company. I wonder who else here will miss Sprint besides me?

      I'm new to this forum, and I've seen people mention cell sites with specific ID's (for example, SF33XC664). Is there any significance to these ID's, and is there a way to decode them? Also, how do I figure out what the cell site ID's are for towers near me?
      Thanks! I'm excited to start talking on this site more 😀

      Samsung Network Vision equipment are highly distinct and fairly easy to spot compared to the equipment that other vendors are deploying. Sprint is Samsung's first extremely massive American contract (baring Clearwire) so there  should be no issues in confusing these equipment for another carrier which happens often with Ericsson NV equipment.

      Below are images of Samsung equipment which includes antennas, remote radio units, base stations, and their mounting configurations.
