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!

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.

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

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.

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

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:

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.

I got this after my 3rd call.

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

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

How are you guys getting around the loop on the website? It ask me for my zip code then throws me back to the phone section.

      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.

      Sprint announced the MVNO Google Fi will use its network for 5G in a press release (that is, once there are actually 5G capable phones compatible with Google Fi someday):
      https://newsroom.sprint.com/sprint-to-provide-5g-wireless-services-for-google-fi.htm
       
      This is the first I've heard about Fi and 5G so far. Google has pretty much kept mum on the topic, so I'm somewhat encouraged.
