Finally the update I have been waiting for ever since they rolled it out for the other SDC phone. Sprint has rolled out

 

5.51Q-117_PAX-63

 

These are the fixes / improvements

 

 

- Improvements to Sprint Direct Connect, including UFMI blocking for privacy

- Enhancement increases coverage area, Sprint Direct Connect now functions over 1x/roaming.

- Improvements to Sprint Direct Connect, added functionality such as TeamDC and OptIn DC in call logs

- Enhancement enables emergency broadcast support for improved safety and security.

- Improvement to user experience when both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are in use.

- Improvements to home screen so it is easier for a user to swipe the screen to unlock phone and answer calls.

- Functionality for setting up or editing calendar events in which you invite others using Corporate Exchange is being removed. If this functionality is needed, please use the Moxier email client preloaded on the device.

- Short Dialing to support Urban and Fleet IDs that match.

 

Also it will let you use SDC when roaming but you need to enable data roaming in order to make that work.

Something interesting is the support now for emergency alerts, which you can configure to let you know where there are weather alert, or any nearby emergency situations. Very useful for people who are constantly are moving around.

This is interesting. Wonder the weather alerts work (localized according to...?).

If it works like it does with Duramax then it should be based on what tower you are on. So when I was in Virginia Beach a few months ago we got a tornado warning alert for that area. It came in as an urgent SMS, apparently on the admiral it comes through within that app and probably with a notification. You have options on that app to change how it is displayed.

Interesting....the app must be constantly comparing your coordinates (or those reported by your cell) with the coordinates of the warning polygons released by NOAA.

 

Really surprised something like this hasn't picked up in popularity. I've looked into doing similar myself with an auto-programmed weather radio, but haven't had much luck finding digital wx tuners.

 

I think coarse location-based alerts would be a great idea, and could easily be a lifesaver here in the midwest.

    • B25 no longer visible to my G2s with Sprint Sims except when rooted using NSG.
    • T-Mobile is asking FCC for approval to obtain Watch TV 2.5 spectrum in Ohio to meet its 5G rural merger obligations in 29 Ohio and 2 Indiana counties. https://wireless2.fcc.gov/UlsEntry/attachments/attachmentViewRD.jsp?applType=search&fileKey=1979344942&attachmentKey=21484155&attachmentInd=applAttach This implies that T-Mobile will aggressively go after 2.5 rural spectrum in the upcoming FCC auction 108 even more than I thought.
    • I'm still getting Band 26 and Band 41 from keep sites in Crown Heights and Bay Ridge. I haven't seen any Band 25 though. I'm starting to think T-Mobile shut down Sprint's PCS spectrum here. I wonder if we'll get 5MHz Band 25 + 5MHz n25 carrier or if we'll just get 2 5MHz n25 carriers.
    • Still seeing strong T-Mobile HSPA+ and some weak Sprint B26 (311-490) in the north Bedstuy area Sprint eNB 6705 (40.70091884265787,-73.94344902067445) is broadcasting the keep PLMN Sprint eNB 899078/899079 (40.83022854043739,-73.94830306659236) has been converted, though the site has not yet been lit up. The density up there is pretty insane - 400ft from the site just North, 600ft from the site just South. Spotted another Dish site near City College (1606 Amsterdam Ave). This is not a former Sprint site, and the neighboring Sprint site (across the street) has not been decommissioned. Still not seeing the Dish PLMN in this area.
    • Just cycled through where I'm sitting...not near any keep sites...and 25/26 don't exist...locking to them but.ps me over to AT&T MFBI (why TMo isn't doing 2/25 MFBI here I don't know...maybe Nokia equipment can't do it?). TMo B41 is visible, but Sprint isn't. Two nights ago I saw 10 MHz Sprint B41 at the top of the band. Not sure whether that's live today.
