Any news on when the NV/4G might start in Ventura County? (Just over the hill from NV in LA area thats outlined on one of the 4guru maps). I'm specifically looking for info on Simi Valley which the sprint website says "next 6 months" for many tower improvements. I would assume it would be part of the build out spreading outward from LA metro.

 

Now in the "old days" of WiMax, clearwire actually got permitted on most cell sites in Simi from City Council but they ran out of money within the next few months so I never got to see 4G.

I figured this would fit in LA metro since its a neighboring county and didn't warrant its own thread.

 

The information you see on the network.sprint.com site isn't related to the NV rollout.

 

As for the timeframe, I don't think we have any information on that yet. I'm sure once the schedules are finalized for the 3rd and 4th rounds, Robert will post them.

I went to Pasadena and break and was told I had to order online and pick up at store... but everytime I go online they are sold out

 

Better idea, get an Android phone like the Samsung Galaxy S3. Samsung seems to be able to keep up with demands and not make a device with tons of defects.

I had a Samsung galaxy indulge LTE and it was the worst phone I have ever had. 2 hour battery life, crashed 3 times a day, overheated, etc. That's why I went with htc.

The issue wasn't Samsung. It was having an early LTE device. You should try the POS HTC Thunderbolt, and you will see what I mean. Newer LTE devices, especially with 28nm processors, are night and day better.

      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.
