Sprint appears to be giving free extended batteries to new and existing Galaxy Nexus users on 8/19.

Anyone know the size of the battery? 2100mAh?

 

That is correct. A little bit more will make a small, but noticeable difference, in my opinion.

I am going to call Telesales Sunday morning.

This is good because i was considering buying the battery and Verizon branded cover from Amazon. We all know that would have just looked wrong!

I think this is fake. Where is the URL?They don't even have extended battery for sprint nexus.

 

It said it is offered through telesales, not via the web. It can't hurt to call Sprint Telesales: 1-866-866-7509 and ask about it on Sunday.

I think the deal is it goes on sale Sunday and the first lot is free. At least that's what it sounds like.

Online ordering sticks me in a loop when I try to use the discount code. Guess I will have to call in the morning.

I got the same thing. Sent me into a Causality Loop. :(

I called Telesales and ordered one. Just paid tax and shipping.

Shipping is 2-5 days and I have already received the confirmation e-mail.

 

I guess the call to Telesales is the way to go.

Good luck.

Just got off the phone with telesales, my order went through just fine. I should be getting it on tuesday. Again, thank you Ben for the heads up.

 

Also:

Called telesales. Said only for new customers. Wouldn't let me order one without ordering phone.

 

This is not true, if you already have a galaxy nexus on your sprint account you qualify as well so I suggest you call back.

Thanks for the head up. Just ordered the battery online. $6.50 for shipping plus state sales tax. Nice!

I got this after my 3rd call.

However, how did you get for $6.50 shipping? They also charged me $14.00 goofy1.

I just ordered mine through telesales. They asked how long ago i bought my nexus and i said on launch day :P . I got mine for 12.95 SH plus tax. BTW the shipping difference is 6.50 for ground and 12.95 for overnight.

Overnight shipping doesn't mean it shows up overnight. Sprint quotes 2-5 business days from order with overnight shipping.

      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.

    • Some more interesting articles on Dish: https://www.fiercewireless.com/5g/dish-wireless-bakes-core-principles-infrastructure-chua https://www.fiercewireless.com/tech/dish-eyes-5g-network-reliability-vericas-chaos-engineering-platform    
    • Financially makes sense, but may put them far behind T-Mobile and Verizon 5g marketing.  Could put them up against Dish if Dish gets their act together and starts their public network in Las Vegas in late February.
    • Fiercewireless put out an article today.  Sounds like AT&T wont get heavily started until later this year when equipment will be more available that supports both 3.45GHz and C-Band.
    • They are using DSS on B5 here, on one carrier. LTE-only on the other AFAIK. I kinda hope AT&T doesn't turn DSS on in markets where dropping H+ bumps them from 5x5 for everything else to 10x10. They have 10x10 of B14 and 5x5-10x10 of B12 to throw users on, and with the delays to their C-Band deployment due to waiting for gear their network is effectively LTE-only in many areas despite an increasing proportion of 5G phones. The network was doing just fine without the extra B5 bandwidth, so not a whole lot of reason to basically go backwards when they said they're dropping 3G to expand 5G.
