S4GRU slow to respond


Recommended Posts

S4GRU Members:


I am buried. I am buried at work and at S4GRU. And I have been inundated with emails, PMs and posts requesting my comment. I am trying to catch up, but I have gotten pretty far behind (especially on PM's).


I am writing this to explain to you all why I may not have responded to you, yet. It's not that I don't care about your questions or blowing you off. I am just really busy.


When you send me a question, and it is something I can answer in a sentence, I'm usually good at responding right away. I even will respond in the car using voice to text sometimes. However, during this busy time for me, it may take several days or more before I can respond to some messages.


Please be patient with me. If I have not responded to you yet, just wait patiently. I will get to you. And if I don't respond, feel free to ask it again in a little while (nicely). I pretty much respond in order from easy to hard. The easier it is for me to respond, the more likely I will respond sooner.


We now have almost 5,000 members. And site management is getting tougher and tougher as the community grows. I thank you all in advance for your understanding.

I need to find a way to delegate. Thanks for the offer.




If you ever figure that out, drop me a PM, always willing to learn more and help out. My family always comes first, but I've truly enjoyed the time I spend on this forum and the knowledge I've gained. I'd love to be able to give back.

I say we put Robert in that Cloning maching that AJ created a while back and just clone away.




With a Borg like collective mind so that everyone is on the same thought pattern ;)

Too late

I don't see a Sprint attachment on that headgear. Were all of his devices merged into the head unit? Can he just think LG Viper or Galaxy S3 or EVO LTE and it reconfigures into that device?

No Sprint. See the red light. VZW is the official telecommunications provider for the Borg.

    • Luckily, that hasn't arisen in my area where I am, aside from having B14 (well, ALL of AT&T signal) not work at all in Coosa county, Alabama. I wish there was a service for first responders that would go to ANY available carrier, provider, etc..and in the absolute worst case scenario, would give us service. I've been on an ambulance, trying to find an address, and my driver actually had to pull over and we pulled out a map book and tried to find the road using the "old fashioned way".. and that takes valuable time away that sometimes may be vital to someone surviving. BUT, I will say that I've only seen that in Coosa county... both my Tmo and AT&T phones had zero service and I couldn't get GPS, and neither could my driver (VZW service). Maybe satellite will help with that in those times where that occurs.. but that's an extreme example.     Edit to add: Let me add some context to this.. Coosa county isn't regular coverage area for my job.. so it's not a regular thing that we are dispatched to Coosa county.. and actually, there's been a change and that county now has it's own ambulance service that operates.. so the only time we might receive a request is if it's a multiple casualty scenario, or it's a transfer going home from our contracted hospital.  The way that reads above, it may seem like we are just out without some sort of GPS gadget to direct us on where to go, but for the most part, we know our coverage area pretty well. Dispatch can also give us cross streets for reference inside our coverage area (and our home county). Coosa just isn't a regular area for my job to run in. 
    • "Priority" doesn't mean "exclusivity."  When emergency services don't need B14, AT&T can use it for everyone else.  The trade-off is that when it is needed for emergency services, they not only get all of B14, but they have also arranged for priority on the rest of the AT&T network as well.  Beats having spectrum sitting unused most of the time and then not having enough when disaster strikes, as it could be without a partnership with a wireless company like AT&T. - Trip
    • I've wondered if being on the first responder plan has the priority over other 'regular' lines in the same way firstnet does (or, supposed to do with B14...I've seen normal customers on AT&T hit B14 so it's not {specifically} for Firstnet only)...  
    • T-Mobile prices people pay are all over the map. The free lines are key, so take them if ever offered again.  Your priority level would be a key factor for your price.  Only T-Mobile would know the average prices people pay.  Samsung has been offering very good deals at time of new model introductions so I have gone that route for factory unlocked, which allows me to also have a Verizon priority MVNO for when T-Mobile signal fails or I manually override.
    • I also wanted to post a speed test result.. I only do these once in a while from my home area because we are gonna be the last to see changes, like load balancing.  Right now they are digging all over the place for fiber installs, so I'm not sure what the hold-up is on making the upload speed a little more in-line with download speeds, but here is the most recent from my area:   https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/10133670525
