Yeah, this would only be a good thing for about 30% of Sprint customers. But if a WiMax device meets your needs for the next two years, this is a no-brainer!. Thanks for the post!

The fire sales have begun. If retailers are starting this early it can mean two things. Large inventory that needs to be cleared or LTE phones are going to be released soon. Or both.

 

I'm going with both to be on the safe side. I have at least a 50% chance of being right at least, lol.

 

I was suprised to see this deal this morning. I wonder when Lets Talk & Wirefly will start their fire sales?

Right now I have a Optimus V with Virgin Mobile which I'm growing bored with. My Father has a family plan with Sprint already and offered to add me on, as long as I pay my share ($30+tax). I currently reside in Miami(33174) while I'm in school, but live in Jamaica NY(11432). I have been doing some research on Sprint's move from WiMax to LTE which is what brought me to this informative site. I have two options, pay a penny for a Epic 4g Touch and take a gamble on WiMax's future in those two cities mentioned for the next 2 years, or $150-$200 for a LTE Galaxy S III or EVO LTE but be forced to wait until LTE arrives in Miami. Any Advice would be greatly appreciated.

I forgot to mention I know currently Amazonwireless is only offering the Epic 4g Touch for a penny to New Sprint Customers but I am sure soon they will offer the Existing customers the same price.

Well, Miami market deployment starts in the next month or so. But it will take many months for completion. So you won't have to wait too terribly long. So it really comes down to your personality and what is more tolerable for you.

 

If you can handle the pain of waiting up front, waiting for the device and then waiting for LTE, then it will pay off with a better device with eventually better service through the remainder of your contract period. If you cannot wait, you will be happier up front for 5 to 6 months of your contract. But the last 18 months you will be very unhappy as you will feel like you have a dated device and cannot access the better LTE network with faster speeds and much better coverage.

 

Some people will need to get the WiMax device now, and I wouldn't fault them. But if they don't need it, they should go the LTE route. The payoff is much higher in Miami over your contract period to go LTE.

Interesting. Where can I find the information you found on Miami deployment of LTE? Thank you for your input BTW.

    • I just pulled up my trails and they all have TACs listed. So no nulls, zeroes or -1's. But there is huge swaths of trails missing. It doesn't appear to log or at least keep any NR driving data unless it is NR only. If it's mixed NR/LTE, then the only thing appearing in the trails is LTE. I am also getting this error.  So it is seeing invalid TAC values, but then when I look at logs, it's like it's deleting them.  Robert
    • I wanted to get on with Genesis, but waited too long.  Just moved my line to BM and another to RP this week.  Experience switching to BM was fantastic though.  Hopefully through them I can at some point get a new sim, or go esim to ride on the Dish network when it exists.
    • Do you see the TAC displayed as -1 in the exported file or is it blank/0? I took a look at your upload on Monday at roughly 12:30 and I’m not seeing any non-valid TAC values - not even -1s, 0s or blanks…
    • Hey @mikejeep - I just shot you a diagnostic from my new Galaxy Flip last night. I’m not able to see Verizon n5 in-app when connected to a midband anchor. 
    • I'm having issues during a WiFi call where the caller can here me but I can't hear them. There are a few bug trackers on Google, but the problem appears to date back to at least early 2021. Appears to maybe also be a T-Mobile specific issue. I'd guess it's technical issues like this that caused them to discourage bringing the Pixel 5 onto their network. And why they didn't even sell it through T-Mobile in the first place. Anyone still here with a Pixel 5? Ever see this issue? Anyone with knowledge of the problem or insight? I'm about to just buy a different phone. Probably won't be a Pixel.
