Retoggle your phone from airplane mode. Sometimes you have full LTE and it just switches back

Yeah Airplane Mode is a life saver sometimes , I remember I couldn't connect to LTE , used Airplane Mode flipped it back on WOOP LTE , lmao, I think Smartphones remember your location when you connect to LTE bc in places i've never been were LTE is , my phone won't automatically connect I have to use Airplane mode but if its a location that i've been to before & LTE is there my phone will jump straight onto the network .

Any word when nyc and everyone else will receive the official 4G LTE rollout or is this it just happening in spurts?

 

Why? Do you want to see a pretty press release with NYC on it? Your coverage will not instantly change due to some press release.

I think he feels like that will make it that much more official. It's like a game. It isn't good enough if only you and the person you were playing against knew you won, you want it to be announced because it make it feel that much more awesome.

The game here is painting the city purple. Everything else means nothing. Trust me. No negativity meant towards Roberts info but even acceptance mean very little when compared to the ever powerful "purple".

Yup sir you are correct the more purple the better , as of right now there is not a lot of dark purple on the Sensorly Map for NYC , I think that will change once Sprint officially finishes deploying LTE for the market .

I forgot to mention this but a new NV tower was added on the corner of The Cross Bronx(I-95) and the Major Degan it's still in the process of becoming functional(dropped calls etc).

 

Interesting info, the towers along The Cross Bronx has an average low of 65,000 connections a day, and a high of 102,000. The new tower above is expected to past that number on the average.

So the LTE in my apartment has dissapeared since two days ago.... :wacko: hopfully it will light up again soon.

the speeds were very fast DL 23mb/s + UL 10mb/s +.

 

Yep but it's a start. The speeds you saw will reflect connectivity once the cluster goes live.

      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.
