Network vision in progress in Lemont Illinois 60439

Just figured i would share for anyone in the area. In Lemont Illinois all 3 of the towers are having issues regarding routing calls and texts to newer devices (evo lte, Iphone, etc) so i called about it and the lady said it was due to the towers receiving the network vision upgrade and said they should be complete by september 7th. which i assume is a far over guesstimate considering the rate that they are pumping these upgrades out at. also when i called they compesated me by offering $5 off for the next 4 billing cycles and are going to call me in the coming days to talk with a diagnostic specialist and see what else they can do for me :)

i just said that it was annoying having to have to keep switching from force roam (so i can get my calls and texts) and switching back to sprint so i can use data and they just offered it so i said sure. also when they read me my msl so i can do a reset (just a reset of the radios and such, all data is preserved) they never questioned the fact that i was A. rooted/s-off and B. running a custom rom both of which can be determined by them if they wanted while poking around for my msl... haha

Your MSL is preset, they don't have to look at your phone, it's given to them by the OEM.

I doubt that the call center person cared that your phone was rooted, sprint typically does not seem to care as much about that as the other carriers. Now if something happens to your phone and you try and have it fixed at the sprint store, they might refuse to do the work because you voided the (insert excuse here)... lol

Kinda depends on the person working on the phone. Most of the techs at Sprint stores have their phones rooted already. So, they *should* know whether or not rooting caused a problem. Last year, I had to take my EVO to get serviced due to the micro USB port going bad and the phone wouldn't charge. They gave me a brand new EVO out of the box, never mentioned anything about my phone being rooted.

    • Yet another "Carrier" move: T-Mobile users have only now discovered sneaky change made in May
    • Went to Hurricane Harbor again this past weekend, this time testing Verizon and T-Mobile. In my testing, Verizon is now the fastest carrier, at least on the Hurricane Harbor sector. Despite it being pretty overcast on Saturday with temperatures in the mid-80's the park was at full capacity.  Verizon had 160MHz of n77 and T-Mobile now has 160MHz of n41. On LTE I was seeing speeds in the range of 50-100Mbps while T-Mobile's LTE on was completely swamped, barely crossing 3Mbps. While both carriers only have a single high capacity sector (facing Great Adventure, Verizon benefits from having CBRS deployed on all sectors. This is an extra 60-100MHz of capacity that T-Mobile doesn't have. Maybe when T-Mobile gets around to deploying their C-band we'll see a boost in speeds again to be more competitive with Verizon. On the 5G side of things, T-Mobile's speeds were just over half that of Verizon.  That said, neither carrier was slow and I had zero issue using Xbox Cloud Gaming on T-Mobile despite their weaker upload speeds and higher ping.  
    • I think the newer ones have signal bars on them. I took a photo of one in Red Hook a month or two ago that had the same design.
    • Well well, looks like we found one of the two Link5G towers that might actually have 5G. Notice anything different? This one has the same signal bars icon that the pole mounted 5G oDAS units have. It’s in Chinatown at East Broadway and Forsyth St. It’s impossible to tell what carrier it is, though.
