Yea but its the first LTE signal I've gotten in my apartment for a while at -120db. Upload didn't do anything but hey it's a sign that its getting closer.

 

Yeah probably when LTE is fully deployed you'll have a better signal .

I have LTE now and I wasn't even lookin for it. If it was just this easy. But seriously it's really almost anywhere I go. I look at my phone at one place and it says 3G and the next place LTE. I must get it at least 10 times a day.

 

Same here on my daily commutes to campus.

Wow so right now my signal is -57 in my house, it's usually around -80 through -101 range. This time I placed a phone call and it worked because last time it was this good I couldn't make calls. Even if this is temp like all the time I at least know my tower is still being worked on and it is going to be awesome!

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.

People are conditioned to think that way because that's how the Bells and Deutsche Telekom does their rollouts. Although, to be fair, the 1900 HSPA rollout has been pretty much by tower as well.

Tmobile is hyping up their 1900mhz because they are supposedly gonna have the iPhone. I currently have a prepaid tmobile account with truly unlimited hspa and I get speeds like 5mbps on avg

That is GREAT news.

 

What phone are you using now? To get a -57dB signal from a -80dB means that they made some physical tilt adjustments as well.

Oh Jesus! Noticed I had like 2 bars so I randomly did a speed test and got this:

Yea I think they're working on the tower closest to me because I've only been connecting to this distant LTE tower (most likely the LTE tower I previously posted about). Hence the weak signal where I usually get 3-4.5 solid bars in my apartment.

Nice. Where was that?

 

intersection of 38th avenue and Parsons Blvd in Flushing. it was around -80dbm. The tower is going in and out of LTE signal for the past two weeks. i think signal is getting strong.

      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.
