I had the same problem when I live in Carolina. And Sprint ships to Puerto Rico and I didn't pay a penny. They shipped it to me from retentions.

You want to call back and speak to someone else because that is 100% wrong.

they definitely do ship here, I have one at home and didn't pay for it, you just need a rep that knows his stuff and is willing to play ball, which may be the hard part. good luck!

Oh and the network seems snappier in Mayaguez today (inside the university of Puerto Rico)

 

went from under the usual 100kbps to 400~500

slightly off-topic post: do any of you use Google Wallet? I can't add my card, and wanted to know if somebody had been able to get it working with a PR address...

only NFC terminals I've seen, have been at Walgreens. I actually spent $6 of the $10 on the Google card at some vending machines in Orlando during the summer, coolest thing ever!

 

haven't been able to add a personal card, which does work for purchasing from the Play Store, I just may end up calling their 800 number and see if they can help,

Yeah I have the $10 google gave for free but once I try to add a personal card it wont let me.

 

Some places that have NFC are Champs, JC Penny and Walgreens. Those are the ones I remember from the top of my head. Im sure there are a lot more!

A test I did last night in San Juan with an iPhone 5. Guess I'm not going to cancel with AT&T. With these speeds I can't hold out till they get vision deployed.

It will still be a few months until Sprint LTE starts popping up around San Juan.

I've had sub-300 kbps speeds for the last 18 months, don't think waiting a few more months is that bad :unsure:

    • One thing that occurred to me after my post is that I'm actually not sure if it was based on timing or based on changing my device.  My current device doesn't attempt to use SRLTE, so I'm guessing it uses VoLTE for 911 calls.  That might be the difference. - Trip
    • I didn't know that had changed, thanks.. very good to know for testing!
    • It has to be a new SIM, not a previously-activated one.  For a long time, Verizon would only let it connect to LTE for 90 days and then disable LTE access, so I have a pile of Verizon SIMs so I could toss and replace when my SIM after 90 days.  That stopped happening at some point, though I'm not clear when. - Trip
    • I just built this PoE and USB 3 upgraded WG3526 with an LM960 in it today   I am testing it on the two Kathrein antenna I put on my TrashMonster™ tower. It works great so far. I use 3 foot of LMR400 7/16 DIN male to SMA male. The cards are pretty on par with each other. They both get lots of aggregation combos, the Quectel is Eng samples only and the LM960 is on production revision 2, model A18 now. IMEI manipulation is more for Quectel if you need that for your plan, Telit I haven't figured that part out yet. The 960 is mPCIe so no adapters for most embedded router slots, the EM20 is M.2 so unless you get one of those fancy new routers I mentioned above you need an adapter. What other questions do you have for me?
    • How do you get your Verizon SIM to connect to LTE without active service? Mine will only connect to CDMA.       Pixel 2 can do NSG, but Pixels require a licensed/pay copy of NSG to band lock. Other phones supposedly don't. Google disables Qualcomm diagnostic mode, so NSG has to jump through some hoops to get it working. On the 4 they don't even include the driver for it, and you have to flash the userdebug vendor image every month. Pixels are fantastic for NSG and logging, except if you need to band lock and don't have a license. No other way to lock bands.   A lot of people in the NSG community really like one plus phones. They support a lot of bands, and play well with NSG. But I'm not sure how good Sprint support is with their older models (ie CDMA).   If band locking isn't super important to you, you could get a Pixel 3a since they're on sale. They support dual SIM, so you can log on two networks at once with Cellmapper. SCP doesn't support dual SIM yet, and seems to report data for the active data SIM. Neighbors will show both SIMs though usually.   Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
