We haven't hit official launch yet, I don't think? So probably there are no guarantees on coverage or consistency as they set up and test the network. That's my guess anyway..

 

 

There are no guarantees no matter what. With wireless technologies there will always be spots where you don't have coverage or it is bad.

Thats what I was thinking. But that hasn't been the case in any other area ive been in. TIRED of waiting! Ahh!

 

I hear ya. I bought the Samsung Epic in 2011 and couldn't hold a Wimax signal. Almost starting to regret coming back to Sprint, but it should definitely improve. And i love the phone i got.

Los Angeles seems to be off and on. It's progressing, but it seems like they have slowed down a bit. I'm hoping its like Chicago and we start seeing big acceptances soon.

yeah I know what you mean. It's very spotty but coverage keeps improving which is all we could ask fo r. Now if it stops Improving g th en we worry lol

So, I've noticed 4g was connecting more consistently lately at work, so I did a speed test. When outside in the strongest spot, 10.5mbs download abd 1.5mbs upload. Not bad. I'm happy with that, but the catch is that unless I'm in an ideal spot outside, it's not as consistent.

 

My office is at the corner of Fairfax and Wilshire.

LTE is finally right outside my door step in Hawthorne. I get about 4-8 down. The other day going to in n out on inglewood I got 21down and 6 up. Faster then my home Internet. I used sensorly also.

So, I decided to test the lte speed outside my office again today.

 

1st Test

12.7mps down

4.5mps up

 

2nd test

13.5mps down

2.5mps up

 

I don't mind that at all. Hope the numbers keep increasing. Connectivity seems to keep getting better, so hopefully it'll continue.

How did text and Dodger Stadium's WiFi preform? I won't bother asking if voice was having issues (since voice usually is fine at large venues) or if data was working fast since 3G crawls to snails pace at Dodger Stadium.

Now that south bay is getting LTE attention at 405/Inglewood Ave I might make the move to sprint.

Does anyone have experience or advice about doing biz with Credo (sprint service)?

Is there any data throttling or true unlimited?

Also, I really am waiting for simultnious voice / data and it looks like the new Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One don't do it.

Any V+D phone suggestions?

A tech press article that is positive about Sprint?! Somebody, please call 911. I think I must be hallucinating.

Love the quote of speeds will get faster when it is official. The marketing department has a magical afterburner switch? "let's make it slow during pre launch!"

 

"Tower, this is ghost rider requesting a speed increase. "" That's a negative ghost rider the 4g core is full. "

Regardless, that is true. Greater live site density equals faster speeds.

Yes I understand that but they make it sound like a switch is going to get flipped at launch. When in reality nothing happens and site rollout continues on...

Opening day at Dodger Stadium was atrocious. Little 4G at least on field level and when it's pack, gl to everyone. I had creat 1x but no data or in and out the whole time, even after leaving the game. I did take a picture of the Tower, maybe someone can ID if there is sprint there or not.

      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.

    • My s21 has the Sept security update ready for install this morning.
    • Ah, I see.  Thanks for those details! It is great to see some posts on this subject.
    • I was reading the FCC filing for the Pixel 6 yesterday and saw that it included n258 - I was wondering what that was. That will be my next phone so nice to know it will support this new spectrum. 
    • The decommissioning of Sprint sites has started, the optimistic worrying starts about which sites they will keep and convert. Only 2 out of the 3 B41 sectors are on Cellmapper, and 0 B25/26 sectors. I think another site near me also got turned off/decom'd, but I haven't checked it yet. I guess its time to start paying more attention to Sprint sites... Link to street view of the site via Google Maps ,  Link to the site in Cellmapper .

    • Haven't gone anywhere yet, so I can't speak to benefits.  My issue was that I was out on Monday morning and it appears that T-Mobile has turned off several Sprint towers near me.  I was sitting in a parking lot near Landmark Mall on -118 dBm Band 25 because two of the sites I used to connect to there were apparently not running, so data would barely move.  This is in addition to my home site which has been off for several weeks, but that wasn't an issue because I don't use wireless data at home.  But if they're starting to turn off Sprint sites and leave holes, then there's really no alternative. So far, I've only seen T-Mobile, but that makes sense since I've only been home and my home site is gone on Sprint, so the site I had been connecting to was a lot weaker.  I'll have to see when I'm out and about, possibly this weekend. When ROAMAHOME came out, I had that removed and blocked from my account since T-Mobile's network is so lousy, so my lines were not automatically pushed to MULTOCN.  I had to have the block removed and then MULTOCN manually added.  That's probably not typical. - Trip
