iSpot from Clear now being bricked

As detailed in the 2 articles linked below, Clear has now decided to brick the infamous iSpot. For those who still keep theirs active, no need to worry, you remain grandfathered on the $25/mo unlimited plan. This is the first part in the WiMax wind down as Clear is now preparing to replace the now antiquated WiMax network and replace it with the much more viable and more readily available LTE technology. I'm glad that I still have my friends iSpot service, as it is nice to have the 4G since my Evo Shift has a terrible 4G radio indoors.

So if you have an iSpot, keep it going until the end of WiMax, and if you have one on vacation/suspension, reactivate it before February 10th, or it will be a white, shiny paperweight.

Uh, was there something else that was supposed to be added to your reply? Cause all I see is your signature line.

 

I didn't respond. I think I started to but I dozed off and dropped my phone. :lol:

    • The options to ignore GCI/NCI/PLMN/TAC are buggy.. working on resolving it. NSA cells are probably not being logged for most users yet.
    • Boost Mobile – the Newest Wireless Carrier – Launches New State-of-the-Art Nationwide 5G Network, Plans and Branding https://about.dish.com/2024-07-17-Boost-Mobile-the-Newest-Wireless-Carrier-Launches-New-State-of-the-Art-Nationwide-5G-Network,-Plans-and-Branding I'm really digging the relaunch of the brand. The new app is a lot better than before in that it actually feels like they're going a more premium route. The BoostOne app tried to gamify wireless service by making you want videos or download games in order to get discounts on your bill. Now it's decluttered and basically only account management. It's perfect. I was on a promotional $25/month unlimited plan on Boost Mobile and I just switched to the new $25 forever plan which is pretty much the same as before, the only exception being that now I'm price locked. The only thing I wish they'd do is start using QCIs instead of throttling once you use up your allotment of "premium data". I understand that they don't have as much capacity as the big 3 and that they're super reliant on AT&T and T-Mobile outside of major metros but hitting 30GB and being throttled to 512kbps is not competitive. They then try to charge $30 for an extra 10GB of high speed data. The big 3 and their prepaid brands have basically given up on hard throttling and use prioritization instead. They should consider doing the same. The next step for them is getting their name on Apple's websites this fall when the new iPhones drop. That's some of the best advertising a carrier can have. Instantly millions of people will learn that Boost Mobile is an actual carrier if they can pull that off.
    • Use cloud features or backup files first before updating with this firmware.  I updated my S24 Ultra with this update.  T-Mobile and Verizon network esims worked fine.  Dish Rainbow sim appeared to work fine.  Right after that, when I rebooted to another non-public test esim which previously worked fine, I got the Samsung Welcome screen.
