Galaxy Nexus $100 now from Sprint


Recommended Posts


So you caved?

The Moto implementation of ICS looks to be pretty close to stock. Here's hoping they come out with a killer JB device, one of these days...


I didn't have a choice. I didn't want another GNEX after my brand new one didn't work. The phone has been out for months, there shouldn't be any data bugs. It amazes me that between Sprint, Verizon, Google, and Samsung, nobody can figure the CDMA GNEX out. I tried to get my NS4G back but they already sent it in. I needed a phone, so I picked the GS3 because of the removable battery and 2gb ram. The signal is fine on the GS3, so is the GNEX Google or Sprint's fault? I don't know, but it's a shame. I just read that Verizon is sending out another ICS OTA for their GNEX that is supposed to fix the radios.....7 months later. But yes, my first choice was a functional GNEX and that didn't happen.

That sounds really frustrating. My understanding is that Samsung has used a low-cost CDMA radio in many of their devices. Motorola appears to have a real edge in CDMA radio performance.

They weren't doing me any favors in exchanging for an S3, I had to pay the price difference and a restocking fee. I'll be disputing the restocking fee.


I hate to say it, but Google needs to take a lesson from Apple. Apple releases and updates their iPhone on both GSM and CDMA carriers without nearly as many issues and delays as nexus devices. Make it happen Google.

    • Well.. my power flickered this evening and kicked my cell spot offline. I noticed that my phone still had service, then the 5G UC showed up on my screen. Honestly thought it was just a hang up from the loss and it was not displaying properly... but then I did a speed test and got 250meg down and 30 Meg upload.... apparently they've added n71 here in the past week and I just found it.  For the first time in 10+ years I don't need a box to give my service at home!! Like a kid with a new toy now...yay!  
    • Sounds like a "well you might as well just buy the company" statement
    • Bloosurf is petitioning to deny T-Mobile's request for an STA specifically in their service area. https://wireless2.fcc.gov/UlsEntry/attachments/attachmentViewRD.jsp;ATTACHMENTS=Ghl9knTSFp8J4nVm1P9qL4541XR1gy58whH7Yyz0MwGs037gQrNV!-2042069078!-79842837?applType=search&fileKey=1297203795&attachmentKey=21718533&attachmentInd=applAttach Short read but pretty much they're saying that T-Mobile's operations in the BRS/EBS band has been interfering with Bloosurf's LTE-based WISP network and that this has caused them harm (lose customers, etc.) They claim that allowing T-Mobile access to all of the spectrum they bought in or near Bloosurf's service area would cause even more interference. To be fair they aren't wrong. They mention that in 2021 the FCC investigated and determined that T-Mobile was operating outside of its licensed spectrum band there. However, I get the sense that Bloosurf is just trying to stop a competitor from operating in their service area. Typically carriers work this kind of stuff out among each other. Here in NYC, 3/4ths of Brooklyn has 140MHz of n41 deployed and the southern 1/4th of it has 80MHz deployed thanks to an incumbent that leases the spectrum from the archdiocese. In spite of that there are no complaints of interference from NextWave in such a dense environment. Seems to me like Bloosurf just doesn't want to coordinate with T-Mobile and would rather complain to delay the deployment of spectrum for as long as possible. EDIT: It's not just their service area, it's a larger area surrounding their service area as well. Something's fishy about this request. 
    • Really cool blog post from OpenSignal giving a broad overview over the mobile network experience in NYC.  https://www.opensignal.com/2023/03/30/localized-analysis-reveals-huge-network-experience-gaps-between-mobile-users-in-the-us
    • Bit too early to tell imo. It's good news if Dish can stop the hemorrhaging. Q3/Q4 2022 they were able to stop the hemorrhaging. Their previous 6 quarters they lost between 160k and 350k subs each. Their next report will be interesting to see how they were impacted subscriber wise due to the hack.
