So Network Vision is slowly but immensely improving the overall experience on Sprint. Luckily living in the Bay Area a large amount of this work has already begun and is continuing each day. For a while I was seeing improvement and loved Sprint for every moment. At the begging of this week all of this suddenly disappeared, being an avid reader of this site I assumed it was an upgrade and just continued on with my day. Now it's near the end of the week and no improvement whatsoever. Basically I would like to know if this is a device related problem (iPhone 4, iOS 6.1, PRL 51094) or if it's an network upgrade which I'll just ignore.

Wow, that is a huge difference. Did you call sprint to see if maybe there were tower issues in your area?

This exact thing happened here in McPherson Kansas. They are having to slowly upgrade the software in the base station would took about a week and a half or two weeks. At least that was the case here but they also had to reconnect the old t1 lines instead of new back haul.

It could have been caused by an issue with the new equipment, so they turned the old stuff back on in the meantime. This is one of the reasons they are leaving the old 3G equipment on the towers wherever possible. If something happens that requires an extended downtime on the new stuff, they can turn the old stuff back on temporarily to fill in the gap.

No I haven't been able to call Sprint yet but, this weekend I have to go a Sprint store for device related issues regarding another line. I could tell them if it continues tomorrow. Hopefully it gets resolved soon, probably some permit hold up or something because in Alameda their pretty tight about this stuff.

      Without further ado, here is the official S4GRU FAQ.

Otherwise feel free to ask the members of S4GRU. The old saying says "there is no such thing as stupid questions" after all. Hopefully one of the other members can help you out.

    • No where near an airport, I do have my license, and its registered with FAA.
    • I could understand that if I was closer...but I live 2 counties away from Birmingham (Jefferson)...I'm in Talladega county...the southwest corner of it.  I emailed back to Sprint and told them that I couldn't understand why it's been fine for nearly 2 years, and suddenly this sector of the tower can't allow MB...but the western-facing sector can.
    • Maybe it is spectrum limitations in Birmingham. I know when I travel there I connect to 2.5GHz when I think 2.6GHz is more common.  Think that is due to limited holdings?  For this tower, the section that facings Birmingham might have different spectrum allocation/deployment than the other side of the tower not facing Birmingham.
    • Apparently, according to an email that I just received, the magic box no longer can be used in this area. But, I can travel to Sylacauga, in town within 3 miles of the tower (on a different sector of the same antenna that is my donor) and it works fine. But on the sector that serves as my donor, I can't have the MB... That doesn't even sound correct...but that's what I just got told via email. Why would this happen? It works fine for a year and a half, suddenly it can't work anymore?
    • That’s pretty interesting! I had no idea it would be that easy to do that. Smart strategy. In the DC metropolitan area, it seems much more stringent. @Trip and @grapkoski are the permit experts around here. 😀
