Perhaps a repeater or something similar in the mall? Is there a Sprint store in the building?

Uhm I believe so. Yeah actually there is but it's on the other side of the food court completely opposite of where I am sitting.

Hey guys another questions. Do you guys think it'd be smart to do Sprint easy pay. My grandma took my upgrade (she got the M7 cause she's cheap) & her upgrade isn't available till December. I wanted to get the iPhone asap but I wasn't sure if doing easy pay was a good idea so what do you guys think?

I don't want the iPhone to get band 41. IPhone equals unusable data.

I believe that could be Sprints big competitive edge! No matter what device and how many users. All phones with CA support would be big!

I think that the iPhone would actually balance out the load between bands more efficiently. We'd ssee more traffic get shifted off of PCS and the speeds will shoot up again. Then the network would work as intended where, outside you'd get blazing fast speeds from EBS/BRS, inside you'd get broad coverage from PCS, and even further inside (going into your basement) you'd still have consistently high speeds on SMR LTE.

I use to think this too but what if a lot of new customers show up and get the new iPhone with band 41 while a lot of old customers are still using the iPhone 5c and 5s and 5? I know people on sprint still using the iPhone 4. Just because people can upgrade does not mean they will so if new customers show up in boatloads which is good for Sprint but bad for capacity then what? Carrier aggregation is not going to happen over night as we have clearly seen this stuff takes time even if they rollout carrier aggregation it will take more than a year to get on every tower. It does not take that long for congestion to happen but it takes a long time to add capacity on a large scale.

I have a feeling that Sprint has already anticipated this. They'll probably increase backhaul until the second carrier can be added. Or they may add the second carrier beforehand and announce it when it's on every site in an area.

Even if people have the 5s or 5c, that is still less pressure on the network because it can spread out on two separate bands. I don't think b41 is going to run out of juice anytime soon unless everyone is abusing the network. And the iphone 6 will still be Triband. To ask, what would be the difference with the adoption of more and more Triband devices over time that run android? Or if a mass Triband adoption started to happen which is what sprint is trying to do with all of these special offers like the 150 Amex deal.

How do you figure? Android users tend to use more data per month than iPhone users http://www.phonearena.com/news/The-average-Android-phone-consumes-more-data-per-month-than-an-Apple-iPhone-or-Windows-Phone_id50832 and band 41 can handle much more data than band 25. I wouldn't worry about it at all.

I never understood that, when android has more market share (and devices) and to me android phones use more data than the iPhone.

 

That's just my opinion

Android users do use more data. I'll find the article & post it for you.

I'm pretty sure that's Band 41 though.

Starts with 02, yes it is B41...

In that case, it was probably just an eCSFB update to your nearest Clear tower or it can be an 8T8R install if you visit the site that you are speculating has been upgraded.

Do you guys know how to obtain msl code for lg g3? The lte priority is set as 25 1st, 26 2nd and 41 3rd. In order to change i need msl code. The app worked for my note 2 but not for my g3.

Don't worry about the priority. That just affects the first scan. It doesn't actually change the connection priority. Whatever band you need to be on will be the band the network puts you on.

Okay. Thanks. My phone stays connected to 41 at work all day.

      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.
