PRL 01138?


Recommended Posts

It is a weird numbering scheme... it is a 800SMR non-LTE PRL. The one posted above was fine. I should have the diffs up by tomorrow.


The 56010/55010 updates pretty much mimic the 25010 updates except the 55/56 ones do NOT have 800SMR yet.


My post from XDA:


Meh.... still no 800SMR support for 56xxx and 55xxx. Guess someone at Sprint doesn't like iPhone 5, Note2, and PhotonQ LTE users. Or maybe there is an issue with the iPhone and 800SMR.


Not sure what took Sprint so long to come out with these as they really match the 25xxx updates...and includes the same glaring errors. Tsk tsk tsk..


So if I read this correctly, my cousin, who just got an iPhone 5, will not be able to use 1x on SMR in Chicago, where it is actively deployed?

Correct. Side by side, an S3 could be in a building with coverage (1x of course) and the iPhone would have no signal (or roaming).

    • Yet another "Carrier" move: T-Mobile users have only now discovered sneaky change made in May
    • Went to Hurricane Harbor again this past weekend, this time testing Verizon and T-Mobile. In my testing, Verizon is now the fastest carrier, at least on the Hurricane Harbor sector. Despite it being pretty overcast on Saturday with temperatures in the mid-80's the park was at full capacity.  Verizon had 160MHz of n77 and T-Mobile now has 160MHz of n41. On LTE I was seeing speeds in the range of 50-100Mbps while T-Mobile's LTE on was completely swamped, barely crossing 3Mbps. While both carriers only have a single high capacity sector (facing Great Adventure, Verizon benefits from having CBRS deployed on all sectors. This is an extra 60-100MHz of capacity that T-Mobile doesn't have. Maybe when T-Mobile gets around to deploying their C-band we'll see a boost in speeds again to be more competitive with Verizon. On the 5G side of things, T-Mobile's speeds were just over half that of Verizon.  That said, neither carrier was slow and I had zero issue using Xbox Cloud Gaming on T-Mobile despite their weaker upload speeds and higher ping.  
    • I think the newer ones have signal bars on them. I took a photo of one in Red Hook a month or two ago that had the same design.
    • Well well, looks like we found one of the two Link5G towers that might actually have 5G. Notice anything different? This one has the same signal bars icon that the pole mounted 5G oDAS units have. It’s in Chinatown at East Broadway and Forsyth St. It’s impossible to tell what carrier it is, though.
