How come Sprint doesn't get...

Well, it helps if you actually have 4G service.... Something both AT&T and Verizon have here in Metro Detroit.

 

And Sprint has LTE in places right now where both AT&T and VZW do not. Regardless, Sprint will have LTE in Detroit within the next year. Deployment takes time; it cannot happen everywhere at once. Whining, passive aggressive comments like yours do not speed up that process.

Going with the Missouri thinking here.... SHOW ME! I will believe it when I see it. I have had my Note 2 since launch day, have traveled a bit, and have yet to see a 4G icon.... Don't even know if it works yet....

So, what...you have traveled to Ann Arbor, Flint, maybe Toledo? I kid, I kid, but you have just not been to any markets with live LTE. Get over it. That you have not crossed paths with any LTE is nothing more than historical and geographical contingency.

 

Network Vision deployment is ongoing in many markets across the country. LTE is already live in many markets across the country. If you do not know that by now, that is a failure to SHOW YOURSELF because Network Vision schedules and progress reports are readily available here at S4GRU.

Not only that, we're all Sensorly addicts, so you can get a visual map there.

 

Although, AJ, I am curious: where does Sprint have LTE that VZW does not? Obviously, Sprint is beating out ATT, and will be soon in the markets they're not...

Because of Network Vision's scattershot site upgrade strategy, Sprint LTE has beaten VZW LTE to some hinterland areas in some markets. That is certainly true in the Kansas market where I live.

Heh, hinterland. That's not a word I've heard much. Outside of roleplaying games.

 

I was curious, mostly. Sadly, such an argument likely does little to placate Sir Detroit. Michigan's already covered in VZW's LTE, even many rural areas. The house my folks live at (a house a half mile down a dirt road in the middle of a forest in the middle of a valley near some farmland) has LTE from them. However, looking at the Sponsor Maps, Sprint will likely beat VZW on "everything in the northern half of the lower peninsula". Interesting.

Hinterland? Geographical reference?

Time for a developer to make a rom... how about just OMG! for the icon?

I can make custom icons all day, but they won't be marketed by Sprint and official. T-Mobile also has their lack of a 4g icon (I know HSDPA+ isn't 4g, but they market it as such.)

You know that some idiot is going to say that sprint doesn't have 4g LTE. That they only have 4g and that 4g LTE is better.

...if not an Iphone 5, the fruity logo phone has the "LTE" icon lit when in 4G zone

Or the iPhone5 is the only phone on sprint that has 4g LTE and all the others are 4g only.

I already have to explain Sprints separate 4g technologies all the time. :'(

You should tell them that Sprint is like AT&T -- it has two "4G" technologies. But unlike AT&T, Sprint has no FauxG.

I was actually surprised that my gs3 had no 4g splash screen when i turned it on and it does not say anything about 4g on the back like my og evo did. granted the evo was the first sprint 4g phone, even if it was wimax.

    • Checked and downloading a 1.6 MB Google Play System update.    Still reflects June 1 after.

    • The options to ignore GCI/NCI/PLMN/TAC are buggy.. working on resolving it. NSA cells are probably not being logged for most users yet.
    • Boost Mobile – the Newest Wireless Carrier – Launches New State-of-the-Art Nationwide 5G Network, Plans and Branding https://about.dish.com/2024-07-17-Boost-Mobile-the-Newest-Wireless-Carrier-Launches-New-State-of-the-Art-Nationwide-5G-Network,-Plans-and-Branding I'm really digging the relaunch of the brand. The new app is a lot better than before in that it actually feels like they're going a more premium route. The BoostOne app tried to gamify wireless service by making you want videos or download games in order to get discounts on your bill. Now it's decluttered and basically only account management. It's perfect. I was on a promotional $25/month unlimited plan on Boost Mobile and I just switched to the new $25 forever plan which is pretty much the same as before, the only exception being that now I'm price locked. The only thing I wish they'd do is start using QCIs instead of throttling once you use up your allotment of "premium data". I understand that they don't have as much capacity as the big 3 and that they're super reliant on AT&T and T-Mobile outside of major metros but hitting 30GB and being throttled to 512kbps is not competitive. They then try to charge $30 for an extra 10GB of high speed data. The big 3 and their prepaid brands have basically given up on hard throttling and use prioritization instead. They should consider doing the same. The next step for them is getting their name on Apple's websites this fall when the new iPhones drop. That's some of the best advertising a carrier can have. Instantly millions of people will learn that Boost Mobile is an actual carrier if they can pull that off.
    • Use cloud features or backup files first before updating with this firmware.  I updated my S24 Ultra with this update.  T-Mobile and Verizon network esims worked fine.  Dish Rainbow sim appeared to work fine.  Right after that, when I rebooted to another non-public test esim which previously worked fine, I got the Samsung Welcome screen.
