Outstanding. I have to head out to the Costco on Commonwealth to gas up my car. If I have time I'll try to take a short drive on Main Street into Alhambra to see how far that signal extends.

 

Just mapped some 4G with the sensorly app on Valley in between Fremont and Atlantic that wasn't mapped before looks like it's spreading slowly2uqyzytu.jpg

So the western San Fernando Valley, though the first in LA has now fallen behind in terms of mapping... Because of spotty coverage and dropped LTE signals? 'Peut être'. I'm doing my best mapping it.. But if anyone is in SF Valley West of 405..Please pull out Sensorly! :) merci beaucoup !

I mapped fallbrook blvd. I am trying to do more as I work here, but i have the EVO LTE, and i have to pray its in good mood to even connect properly. it finds the network and it stays on connecting. I also found a lot more on Santa Monica Blvd, east of the 405, but still the same problem. I hate HTC for screwing this phone so bad.

Advertise it on Craigslist. Seriously.

 

I had your same phone a few months ago, advertised it on Craigslist, and had someone who wanted to swap phones. Their Samsung Galaxy S III plus a few bucks on my end for the HTC EVO 4G LTE.

I was able to talk Sprint into swapping out my EVO 4G LTE for a NEW Galaxy S III about 4 months after getting the HTC phone. I had been an EVO fan from the start, having owned the 4G, 3D and the LTE... But this EVO was a potentially awesome phone but after some major issues from Sense reloading constantly to messages and 'People app' related processes including messaging app taking forever to load after early Sept update, the uses were drowned by glitches in every handset I got as replacement. The radios were poor; the Galaxy S III doesn't seem drastically better as far as radios but it is certainly FAR more stable, fast, and hey.. Removable battery! :D

Very cool... Did you do it at the store or on the phone?

Robert the big panel is one of the network vision??

 

That looks like it could be a Network Vision Alcatel Lucent panel to me.

LA60XC339 in Lomita is transmitting LTE. I mapped out a portion of the signal on my drive home. And this was the speed test taken at the traffic signal at Western Ave. and Lomjta Blvd.

How do you find these towers and their names? And how do you know that they are sprints?

 

In our Sponsors section we have maps showing every single Sprint site in the county and their Site ID numbers, as well as lots of other info. We also have a weekly update in the Sponsor section showing newly converted sites. For more information about how to become a Sponsor: http://s4gru.com/index.php?/topic/1195-information-about-s4gru-sponsorship-levels-and-how-to-become-a-sponsor/

I see a tiny speck of LTE on Valley by Rosemead. Did any of you map that?

Did any of you map the area in Marina del Rey on Sensorly? I noticed that Lincoln Blvd, between Washington Blvd and the 90, was not covered. That seems a tad odd to me that the area in question doesn't have LTE coverage with the nearby areas surrounding other NV-completed towers having LTE coverage.

 

Then again, how much do I really need to know about LTE coverage since I am still 7+ months away from my renewal date. LOL

Build out of lte is hardly complete so nothing really odd about areas not having coverage. Both my home and work is within one block of stable 4g. In hoping the build out continues at a nice pace to fill in the gaps.

      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.

    • I chatted with a foreman the other day (figured out what tmo panels look like lol) but he was also "on lend" from a verizon contractor. So he didn't know a ton.. but enough. It's going on, it seems like its a little bit of slow process. And things screw up there to (he had an install were the panels S/N didn't match that which was on the paper work back in the office)   AND TMO does more over the phone vs having a eng. on hand like verizon does, so it slows it down a bit if they have a hiccup... Like wrong S/N lol
    • The direct number to Account Services/Retentions is  844-382-3317 . I think they might be able to help.
    • I went to three stores that had Sprint SIMs in stock, none of which could activate one for my iPhone. I also tried calling in twice as well as speaking with someone on online chat. In every instance, I was told they couldn’t move me back or that the system wasn’t letting them activate my device. While it may be possible to go back, they are definitely not making it easy. And customers like me (who depend on their phones for work) cannot deal with dropped calls and EDGE in the time it takes to figure it out. 
    • Unless something has changed, you can still go back. There are still immediate needs to do so- activating a phone not eligible for TNX yet like a pixel 5 for instance. You just have to do it through chat/customer support as the online portal doesn't support going back to a Sprint sim.
    • Just a heads up for anyone else thinking about making the switch to TNX - I tried for about two weeks and it does not appear you can go back if you don’t like your service with TNX.  I would strongly recommend staying on TNA for anyone who is hesitant/unsure.
