Just curious. Was the site a Sprint site and Nextel or was it only Nextel and the are putting Sprint equipment in? Can you find out?

that may be within the realm of possibility, but I take anything from a sales rep with a grain of salt. Ericsson is the one doing the rollout, not Sprint.

Saw some trucks in front of a tower over on Hasting St. near silver star rd on my way to work this morning... not sure if this is a Sprint tower or not but it gave me a chubs on my ride to the office.

LOL... THIS IS A MUST READ....

 

 

i have a theory of why cocoa got slammed with LTE goodness first instead of orlando.

 

 

heres my article back in 2010 when i lived in cocoa, across the street from Brevard Community College on Clearlake rd

As far as I can tell, there is no entry in the Guinness Book for amount of dataicon1.png consumed by a person in a month. So I'm creating a very unofficial, tongue-in-cheek, yet highly prestigious and chock full of nerd cred World Record for Data Use on a Mobile Device. The bragging rights go to (the envelope please) jonathanlc2005 from our very own forums, with a total usage for one month of 52.663 Gigabytes!

Be fully aware that jonathan IS paying for the Sprint Hotspot, so before anyone pulls a Kanye and jumps in, do the math -- 52 GB @ $30.00 isn't abusing anything, except maybe Jonathan's wallet. Think you can beat the record? Grab a screen cap of your total data usage for the month, or a pic of the relevant portion of your bill (be sure to edit out any personal info please!) and send it to me. No cheaters, so that means no unofficial WiFi hotspot or tether apps from the Market. We don't want to give the carriers any more ammo to use against us. For now, feel free to head over and congratulate jonathan on his hard work!

 

 

as soon as i saw that sensorly map with cocoa highlighted... i laughed. your welcome cocoa

They aren't picked by data usage.

I received an email from Sprint in reply to my question about when to expect LTE in the Orlando area.

It said we should see it in four to six months;That means at least 6 months before a partial deployment..I so wish I had not renewed with a new phone; should have paid the money for Verizon and got LTE now and almost everywhere in the US.

Work has already started in the Orlando market. There is not any LTE currently in Orlando proper, but the market is underway, and LTE is already available on the coast, and will soon be in the city. A full scale launch may be 4 months away, but you should begin to see LTE signals within a few weeks.

This is not accurate. You are mixing work starting and market launch. Work is under way now. More signals will start to come live in the next few weeks. So it will not be at least 6 months for a partial deployment. In six months from now, they will have already launched the market as well.

Hey guys, check this out. This guy tweeted me telling me he caught Sprint LTE over at Disney World in Orlando, and he told me it was very fast! FINALLY hope that we are starting to get LTE in this area now. Check out our conversation here and tell me what you think about the screenshots.

Too bad he can't use sensorly as I stand behind the phrase of sensorly or it didn't happen.

 

And wow.. That was mentally draining to try to read that.

      Ill make my comments brief, in hopes that it creates dialog abbot our future. The synergy and blending of the 2 company's from the network perspective is a complete disaster already! If you are a Sprint Network Employee and feel everything is so far, so good. You have not yet been tortured by the superior leader. Its coming. 
      T-mobile either has a leadership directive to force out Sprint employees, or the local markets and regions are overwhelmed by the extensive knowledge Sprint folks bring and that intimidation is causing them to try and force you out. To be fair, Sprint had layers of dead weight also and most need to be bounced. 
      From the brief time I have seen their processes and procedures combined with the lack of experience, rest assured you are all in for a wild ride.
      How about unionizing?

      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.

    • No, what I did was out of the box I tried the Sprint set up assistant app and input my info in via app and then wifi. It wasn't working with my current cell phone so I tried it on another and it worked. I also have android.    Regarding the flashing, the same thing happens with me. I think it is not connected all the time. When I am on wifi, it stays green when I am close by, then when I turn off wifi, it flashes so the same thing. I have not had mine for very long, so I'm not sure if it takes time to calibrate itself. I also moved the GPS black box to a different location so it has a better GPS signal.   The green light indicates that it is working and periodically flashes so it is set up, but I just set up mine, so I'm not sure on the specific when it toggles, etc.
    • Your second paragraph confused me a bit.   Also, are you saying you ran the set up multiple times as in you factory reset it and tried again? Or just unplugged and plugged back in and it started working all of a sudden, I also still dont know how it functions. Are we supposed to always be on the wifi 5g that we select through the setup? Or after it goes solid green are we supposed to turn wifi off (The only way I get it to flash green is right after I turn wifi off...I get like 5 flashes of green and then back to solid)....but then eventually I lose a signal    
    • My T-Mobile S20+ finally got the May update about a week ago, but my AT&T S20 Ultra is still saying its up to date on the April update. I wonder if they're just going to skip the May patchs and just combine it all into the June update at this point. AT&T used to be super fast about pushing the monthly updates out with my S9+, I hope that's not changing.
    • The set up took several times and really was a hit or miss for me. I tried the wifi option and it kept timing out, however; when I unplugged the pebble then replugged it in, after the LED light sequence set up it was a solid green light then flashes when connected. I think that when inputting in the wifi info, it showed as timing out, but the info went through b/c I see that it flashes when I am near. The first time it happened I was a bit surprised and just gave up as it not working so I unplugged it then replugged it and the light was green.   My wifi router that connects into the cable is indoors, so that won't work for me. If you cannot use the antenna with the ethernet cord then don't use it b/c it will not work if it cannot lock a GPS signal according to the instructions.
    • I'm guessing that's the case. I spoke with 2 different reps on 2 different dates (both were clearly American) and both told me the launch date was June 12th. The second time I called I asked the guy "are you sure about the June 12th launch date and are you sure that it's the V60". He said yes I'm absolutely sure. He said they wouldn't know anything about pricing until June 12th but he was sure about the launch.
