I'm going to guess that he's not snooping around here, though I'd like to be wrong about that. Unless he has a Twitter account, the best bet would probably be to try to email him. claudio.hidalgo@sprint.com would likely be a good email address to try first.

I will certainly try that.....

What average speed tests are you getting? What you want is a base minimum speed. What tech is used to accomplish that in a given area it kind of irrelevant.

If you dont have the coverage of the competition you need  to increase speed where you have it...

This is exactly why I left sprint. Those speeds are unacceptable if you have a descent signal.

I'm with Sprint because I have multiple unlimited lines with PR and US phone numbers. T mobile won't allow this so I'm stuck. I know Sprint isn't the best but it works for my needs. I wish I could recommend them in PR but I can't until they upgrade throughout the island.

This is from my living room. Front of my house is lte and the rest is slow 3g. I can't complain.

Sticking with good Customer service is worth it even if the service they offer you is bad?

Hi to everyone

 

Band 41 in San Juan and Bayamón is extraordinary fast. I'm waiting for VoLTE, Sprint are getting better and better over time but also AT&T and Tmobile. Spirnt coverage is better than Tmobile, I have both, and Claro. Claro have better coverage but very slow data service. Overall Tmobile have better download speed, Sprint still to spotty for speed for obvious reasons of 2.5 spectrum. Customer service in both companys are great. For me, GSM is more practical than actual CDMA. Easy phone swipe, easy troubleshooting, if you buy a new unlock phone is more easy to use (like the Nexus), there are more models and offers available in the web with a wide range of prices, etc. Just my opinon based on my experiences.

    • Thanks! I build non carrier compliant but still compliant machines so if you need one before T-Mo builds one I am here.     
    • I just found this out myself on the s10e. Download the Samsung Band Selection app and you can set it back to wifi if you want. Dumb that there is no menu option for it natively.
    • So I got the Pebble from Sprint, I'm waiting for the damn VoLTE to enable. I harassed Sprint and they said it is a limitation of the device (which they still can't explain why) and waiting is the only option. They also told me every time there is a power failure the wait for it to enable begins again.... really? Does anyone know how it works and why there is a 2-3 week lead up to VoLTE enabling? So now my voice calls drop down to 1x and I can't receive MMS when I'm on a call. No problem I thought, I'll just switch to wifi calling for now and I can still get MMS over LTE while I'm on a call. Not so fast. For some damn reason wifi calling doesn't work on my SM-G970U1 (unlocked s10e) when I'm connected to the Pebble. If I turn airplane mode on, wifi calling pops right up. If I unplug the pebble, wifi calling pops right up. That leads one to believe the Pebble is preventing wifi calling from activating for some reason. However, my dad's LG V20 has absolutely no issue using wifi calling while connected to the Pebble and can therefore receive MMS just fine. Do you have any idea what in the hell could be causing this? Is this some whack setting on the s10e which I'm not seeing? Phone has the latest updates, 911 is updated, I did PRL and profile updates. I'm stumped....   UPDATE: So I found the answer in the wifi-calling menus and googling that took me to a post here. Apparently starting in April of 2020, Sprint decided it knows what is best for you so it sets calling over the network to preferred and only if signal is too weak will it default to wifi calling. There is no visible option in the phone to change that setting. I had to download Samsung Band app to set it to prefer wifi and bam.... now it is enabled. I'd still like to know WTF the Pebble is doing with VoLTE though.
