So this is strange...

Sprint has said they aren't releasing anymore WiMax devices. And why isn't it referenced as an Epic 4G Touch? I wouldn't hold my breath. Why, indeed.

Didnt sprint say no new wimax devices? Or maybe since it is only a new color then its not a new device?

The naming convention makes sense with samsung wanting a stronger brand for the galaxy line. The price cards in stores now show only galacy s 2 and not epic 4g touch

Maybe if it has been swapped with a LTE chip...but I'm just not buying that one unless maybe it was free phone with Wimax disabled. It's already confusing enough with the two 4G's, then to sell them a phone that will not get 4G in the new areas.

The S2 series is still being released on a number of smaller carriers as new devices. This is just a color refresh, most likely a rebranding of older unsold inventory to generate additional sales. It's what I'd do if I had a ton of unsold new inventory that wasn't going anymore. Discount the price, release a new color and make some profit off of that unused inventory.

    • I have added T-Mobile eNB 879366, a Sprint convert site, to the list of gig+ sites, as I was able to break the 800 Mbps ceiling with it. I'm still trying to understand the DAS mess at LGA and locate them, but the bad thing about it is inside the terminals I can occasionally pick up the macros inside. It anchors 5G, which is great for a speed boost, but occasionally data hangs because my device is having a handoff frenzy trying to pick the best macro and/or band for the 5G connection.   I have spotted 2 more Dish sites, one on the corner of Church Avenue and East 16th (photo below), and the other is an in progress site co-located with Verizon eNB 81069.   At Verizon eNB 81069, the ports on the Dish panel weren't connected yet, brand new racks were being used on the roof Verizon is on, and it looks like Sprint's equip is still up on the building next door.
    • Neat!  Thanks.  Most of my issues at the moment are from inexperience.  I've never used AT commands and I'm bad at Python.  I'm not really sure what the best way is to send AT commands to the modem; socat seems to work, and there are Python libraries that should do it, but I don't really know what I'm doing.  - Trip
    • If you need any assistance, firmware or drivers with the radio; I am involved in Quectel's US based sales and field application engineer programs. I am working on the x62 reference RM520/N right now. They are a really fun product to work with.  
    • Thanks for the locations, I will try them sometime in the next week or so.
