This was by Main st and Weyman ave. I was picking up stuff I needed from Home Depot.

 

It would be even better if B26 were ready by Regal New Roc Movie complex, its my go to spot for movies, best screens around, parking and decent crowd.

Any issues in nyc right now? My sister told me she has full bars but when she tries to make a call she gets a "no signal" message. I told her to restart and test texting and Internet. She can get all that and receives calls but cannot place calls on an upgraded lte site in Washington Heights.

Happening only at one site?

Isn't the home Depot across the highway where stu Leonards is?

Had the 8T8R gone live in New York or it just the clearwire sites?

No 8t8r equipment has gone live anywhere in the US as of yet, its still FIT testing in Chicago as of now. Luckily Clear has been excellent here in NYC! 

 

Also, at the rate that Sprint has been installing 8t8r, I have a feeling they will launch a massive amount of markets simultaneously before the end of the year.

 

Unfortunately, no one has confirmed seeing any 8t8r antennas in NYC thus far.

Try to get a pic of the site, then we can confirm what type of antennas are there...

      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.

    • I chatted with a foreman the other day (figured out what tmo panels look like lol) but he was also "on lend" from a verizon contractor. So he didn't know a ton.. but enough. It's going on, it seems like its a little bit of slow process. And things screw up there to (he had an install were the panels S/N didn't match that which was on the paper work back in the office)   AND TMO does more over the phone vs having a eng. on hand like verizon does, so it slows it down a bit if they have a hiccup... Like wrong S/N lol
    • The direct number to Account Services/Retentions is  844-382-3317 . I think they might be able to help.
    • I went to three stores that had Sprint SIMs in stock, none of which could activate one for my iPhone. I also tried calling in twice as well as speaking with someone on online chat. In every instance, I was told they couldn’t move me back or that the system wasn’t letting them activate my device. While it may be possible to go back, they are definitely not making it easy. And customers like me (who depend on their phones for work) cannot deal with dropped calls and EDGE in the time it takes to figure it out. 
    • Unless something has changed, you can still go back. There are still immediate needs to do so- activating a phone not eligible for TNX yet like a pixel 5 for instance. You just have to do it through chat/customer support as the online portal doesn't support going back to a Sprint sim.
    • Just a heads up for anyone else thinking about making the switch to TNX - I tried for about two weeks and it does not appear you can go back if you don’t like your service with TNX.  I would strongly recommend staying on TNA for anyone who is hesitant/unsure.
