Everybody loves Sprint


Recommended Posts

I'd also like to mention every time I see a sprint ad on facebook, the comment boxes are always filled with completely negative thoughts.

 

One person wrote "im with sprint worst mistake ever i hope this company dies in a fire"

 

Sprint needs to explain to the country what they are doing to their network a lot better than how they are now. And thats one thing they have failed terribly at.

Well I don't see this thread being open very long. People always going to say something negative about every company. Just so happen people say a little more negative things about Sprint. The way I see it they just complain about sprint to justify the high price they pay for wireless service on other carriers.

Reminds me when we had the old S4GRU facebook page. Literally 9/10 comments after every post were ranting or complaining about this or that from people who feel entitled they should have everything at that second.

Actually coming from VZW EVDO, Sprint has been an Improvment for me.

 

There will always be people that think that their wireless should work everywhere and anywhere. Most of the blame falls on the carriers setting unresonable expectation levels.

 

 

AT&T, Sprint and VZW are sitting in a car, this is their discusssion..

 

 

 

They just want your wad of big sweaty money lol...

I guess someone hasn't seen the AT&T Facebook page.

 

All carriers have their issues, but if you look hard at what Sprint is doing, that once they get their current network rebuild done, that they'll be fine. Sprint PR can handle all this better though, a nice "Pardon Our Dust" page explaining Network Vision would be a nice start.

I've seen at&t's Facebook page. What a mess at times. They have a group of die hard at&t fans trying to help AT&T's social media team, and sometimes it works, but a lot of the time it doesn't.

Well, bless the hearts of all the AT&T wolves as they like to call themselves. AT&T should just hire all those people and get it over with. They have the money chest to do it...

I agree. They should have been hired like 3 years ago, lol.

I'm as annoyed with Sprint as anyone, but I have three lines for a total of $166 per month, unlimited. Equivalent service from Verizon and AT&T would be $299 and $278. Sprint is third-rate service-wise around here but it works and I'm willing to deal with a little smut for $150 savings.

 

And as always, the whiners out-voice everyone else by a mile. Facebook isn't really a good tool to judge with.

I agree. They need to be working on getting the message out they they are WORKING and acknowledge the issues at hand. There is still yet to be anything mentioning their NV on their homepage. With almost 70 markets and 200+ in the works I would think that when people see that "THE NEW SPRINT IS COMING"... they might consider that they might be the better option. Sure, now, Sprint has their issues, but the hope that is promised that we all know of is not very well communicated to the eyes of your everyday consumer.

 

...the simple half page flyer in your bill on the 3rd page isn't going to get anyone to believe your serious.

It should be on the front page of Sprint's website.

 

Explain the shift in technology, the rebuild of the network, and the upcoming acquisition by SoftBank.

 

Come think of it, I like "The New Sprint is Coming" campaign. Such an idea should be forwarded to 6600 Sprint Parkway.

Silence is golden. Considering probably over 10,000 people that have Sprint has seen the ad, only 300 posted and of that, there's only a fraction negative. People that are happy with Sprint will most likely not post anything. Therefore, majority like Sprint. :)

You'd think that if Facebook really was for rants, that companies would avoid advertising there as it may backfire. Whatever, it's cheap advertising, at least.

Equivalent service would be having data speeds that aren't .5Mbps.

 

I can't even stream Pandora when I'm driving.

I know of places where at&t has maximum 3G speeds of 1.2 Mbps, and even their 4G speeds suck too. Both places I live are like that, so yes, it is equivalent service.

I'll dust off the old s4gru account and get in on this.

 

I'll call BS on your comment here. One part, at least is wrong. You definitely can stream Pandora on .5Mbps (credit where due for proper capitalization) I do it all the time. Also, I've streamed Pandora on the road driving through sections of the country filled with hills where even Sprint says I wont have service. Popping between 3G, 2G, and roaming, I had to wait up to a minute sometimes for a song to start but it totally did.

 

But this isn't just for you Glenavo34, I'm not trying to be too mean.

 

Bloomington IN didn't have 3G in 2009 from Sprint and I streamed Pandora on my Samsung Instinct. Granted, it was horrible quality but worked for when I forgot my Zune.

 

A bit more insight with a colorful embedded graphic, I have this (http://alpine-usa.co.../view/cde-135bt) receiver in my car and streamed Pandora over bluetooth the whole way.

A lot of fields and woods on that trip and no problems.

 

I by no means worship Sprint, I really hate some of their corporate moves but I'm with them and don't think they deserve half the criticism they get. At least criticize for real problems they have.

I can stream Pandora over a 100k 1x connection just fine. I can stream Netflix on a 500k 3G connection.

You can call BS, but why would I lie about this? It's not like complaining about it on this forum will get Sprint to give me a credit to my account or lower my bill. I'm not trying to bash them since I'm clearly still with Sprint...I'm merely telling you what happens to me multiple times each morning during my commute.

 

I stream Songza or Pandora and it takes way too much time to buffer the song. When it switches to a new song, I either stay, "buffering" anywhere from seconds to minutes.

 

It seems like half the commute I can listen to music, the other half is spent in, "buffering."

I don't think you're lying. I think that you are getting way less than .5Mbps if you can't stream. Also, I'm all for Sprint discounting its customer's bills if they use, let's say, less than 500MB of data per month.

 

My BS calling was saying that if you got .5Mbps then you should have no Pandora trouble. I was saying you must be getting much much less or have a problem with your phone... I really could have said that better. In fact, I was way more negative about Sprint than you.

    • Sounds like an awesome project—keep us posted on how it’s going! Also—if you’re able to figure out logging, I can work with you to get the data uploaded to SignalCheck. 
    • Yesterday, I saw a post on Facebook from an old friend about the Evolve III Maestro, a $60 laptop (at Micro Center) that apparently has an LTE modem in it.  Specifically, the Quectel EC25-AF*.  The nearest Micro Center was sold out of new ones, but offered open box at $48.  So for $51 after tax, I walked out this morning with one.  An absolute steal. I backed up the Windows product key and then put Kubuntu 22.04 on it.  I spent a lot of time today trying to get the build tools installed so I could get the wifi module installed and running, and once I did that, I pretty quickly got to sending it modem commands, which I've never done before.  I don't have a SIM in it yet, but it does seem to function as it should.  (I figured out the command to get Timing Advance values out of it, but without a SIM, I doubt it would have such values.) Now I'm trying to puzzle out how to write some kind of script or small program to use it for logging purposes.  I think I've worked out how to send commands to it from bash using socat, but I need to pick specific commands to run.  I'd actually like to replace some of my phones with this if I can get it to record cells, with GPS, and cycle through a set of bands repeatedly.  My current phone collection consists of 9 phones other than my main S21FE, and they require babysitting while I'm logging.  It'd be nice to pare that down to a more reasonable number and let the computer do the work, hopefully in the back seat with less babysitting. - Trip ===== * Per the spec sheet, it supports B2/4/5/12/13/14/66/71.  That'd cover all of Verizon and US Cellular LTE, all but B29/30 on AT&T, and all but B41 and Sprint Keep on B26 for T-Mobile. 
    • More bizarre.  I just updated my other Ace without issue. - Trip  
    • Looking over the data so far, bidders can go back and reopen bidding on licenses that appeared settled. In the list below, not all counties are listed and only states with excess demand.  Typically 3 licenses per county for rural areas and some urban areas. Here is how many licenses per state had demand greater than supply: State count AK 3 AL 14 AR 3 AS 6 AZ 9 CA 12 CO 76 DE 6 FL 10 GA 66 GU 3 HI 3 IA 99 ID 47 IL 39 IN 43 KS 231 KY 23 LA 14 MA 5 MD 16 ME 1 MI 86 MN 9 MO 79 MP 12 MS 73 MT 69 NC 26 ND 109 NE 18 NH 13 NJ 6 NM 51 NV 24 NY 13 OH 29 OK 9 OR 30 PA 24 PR 25 SC 20 SD 83 TN 76 TX 236 UT 49 VA 22 VT 5 WA 65 WI 59 WV 26 WY 29
    • Looks like Dish has already taken back the 5x5 of n71 they leased to T-Mobile, and instead of narrowing NR here T-Mobile has gone for broke and made 600 NR-only. They can afford to do that here thanks to B12, and don't need to do that west of here because they weren't leasing 600 from Dish. Does mean that Dish is 10x10 for n71 here (which explains the 30ish Mbps upload peak I saw yesterday). Darned speculators hogging the remainder of the band So T-Mobile is running 140 + 15x15 MHz sub-6 NR here. AT&T is 40 + 15-45x15-45 (15x15 n5, occasional 15x15 DSS on n2 and/or n66 though I haven't seen both in the same area). VZW is 60 + 15x15, with the latter being n2 DSS. Wonder how soon VZW will try n48.
