One of my two contracts are about to end November 6 and the other in May. I have three options and am having a really hard time deciding on the best decision so I decided to ask my S4GRU brethren for advice. Option 1 is to just keep my EVO 4G LTE until next year when all of the new April-June phones arrive but I don't like this option because the terrible LTE reception and the fact that Sprints LTE roll out is going a little slow for my tastes. Option 2 would be "if" the Nexus 5 has Tri-band LTE I could sell my Evo for 150 if I'm lucky and pony up the rest of the money while not having to renew my contracts so if I get tired of waiting for Sprints network to come to life I can jump ship to T-mobiles pre paid $70 plan and test there network to see if its better than Sprint's network all while not taking a financial hit or I can keep the Nexus 5 as my tri band Sprint device until next years phones come out and keep both phones. Option 3 is if I get the G2 on best buy pre order for $100 with the $50 gift card which I will use to buy the quick case. I will also get the benefit of getting to keep my Evo LTE so another 2 phone benefit option is nice. Any suggestions
Here is a list of what the author says are bugs in Jelly Bean on the EVO LTE.
"most of the issues have been Sprint’s."
"There are rumors coming up from the stores than an update is coming soon to fix many of the bugs, but as far as I know there’s no official timeframe on that and that leaves many non-root users out for weeks with buggy equipment"
I use speck presidio cases only for my samsungs. I like the grippy-ness (?) of the case, and I can't stand fully enclosed cases. I already got mine in for the ultra when it gets here. Gotta pick it up at walgreens...
iPhone Xs and up if B71 is a concern, if your area has B12 then anything back to the 6s. Samsung S6 and newer are compatible with B12, and anything S8 and newer is able to be swapped to T-Mobile firmware via a software update. S9 and newer for B71. Everything back to the OG Pixel for B12, and Pixel 3 for B71.
I don’t know what everyone is talking about with VoLTE being bad. In my experience calls are clearer than my ATT VoLTE. Also first root scores came out today and guess what? They used a S9 last year with calling plus and Sprints calling scores tanked. Now they are using the S10 5G for Sprint and the Note 10+ 5G for the other three carriers and Sprint calling score have skyrocketed across the board using VoLTE. One test jumped from 75(calling plus) to 95(VoLTE). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
