How is wifi calling a big advantage for T mobile. I have been making wifi calls since 2010 with Google voice. LOL talk about misinformation. Anyone using Google voice can make wifi calls for free.,

Im curious, how are you making WiFi calls on GV? I was using Groove IP app but GV stopped supporting it.

Ok so I did some tests on the train ride to work. Tmobile is better on the train that's for sure. At work it's pretty much even in speed. Conclusion is I'm not overly impressed with tmobile and won't be switching for sure. I wish I has triband to test but I don't right now.

I thought the one in North Bergen was bigger than the one in Lodi? 

 

Now that I live in Queens, I drive over to Valley Stream for all Walmart needs, though thankfully the Target on Queens Blvd has almost everything I need.

Correct, its North Bergen on 91 st, not Lodi (I confused the location with National Liquidators in Lodi) then again North Bergen and Lodi seem to be the same place for me, it is NJ after all. its all one big blur.  :P

 

Yeah the Target in Gateway is good, I like the one in Elmhurst a bit better just traffic is a bitch. I find the LTE in the area very good.

no I payed nothing. All they do is put a hold on your credit card incase you don't return it.

They probably thought that they'd be signing up a new customer when they saw you walking in! Their reaction was probably something along the lines of:

Interesting, I'm assuming for the aboveground part of the trip?

 

I find that Spark is solid on the 7, to Court Sq at least.

Back to topic...can't wait for the site that serves my apartment to be lit up with B25/B26. Right now the B41 signal seems to be really weak, considering the site it "should" be coming from.

Well I'm glad to hear that you've decided to stay on as a Sprint customer.

yes aboveground, tmoble kept lte where I dropped to 1x or 3G. Not enough for me to realistically switch considering I know what spark is capable of and I have 4 other lines.

Really, 1x? Sprint has pretty much 0 1x outdoors unless you are on the edge of signal. But then again, you are on an iPhone. Today, I went to the movies by the WTC with a friend and his iPhone 5S (on Sprint) got stuck on Extended 3G whereas my M8 switched back to native 3G and then Band 41.

Hope Iphone6 get tri-band radios this time. (even I never want to own an Iphone but hope they can bring iphone users to tri-band asap).

Yeh me too. I also hope they can do something about the rf performance, because it apparently isn't the best based on what I've been reading lately.

Your sprint phone was an iPhone 5?

 

The reason I ask is that even my iPhone sometimes gets stuck in a never-never land where it idles on 1x while my Spark phone sits pretty switching bands.

I got to see band switching first hand today on the 7 train. Was connected to B41 coming out of Court Sq, as I went underground, I saw SignalCheck Pro show B41->B25->B26, before no signal.

      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.
