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.

    • Mike, are you still recommending that this beta only be used on on dual psim/esim devices or should it now be basically safe for all devices (with usual beta risks)?
    • A new SignalCheck Pro beta is rolling out right now with LOTS of bug fixes.. and some new features. The full changelog is in the app or on the website. In addition to many bugfixes, there are some notable new options: Colorize location display to indicate low accuracy (yellow when Trail Logger is enabled) or outdated timestamp (red). This is enabled by default. Enable/disable display of location coordinates with location accuracy and the location timestamp.. so now each value can be individually enabled/disabled. Configure the maximum age of location data before Location Service is restarted; the default remains at 10 minutes but can now be configured as desired. Limit max number of neighbor cells to display (including 0, if you only want to see the summary line). Some users are seeing LTE or NR data persist after a connection is lost. I made some minor changes, but I wanted to get this release rolled out before continuing to dig deeper into that issue since I made so many other changes that may or may not impact this bug. One thing that users can try is to disable the option under Preferences > Display Settings > Show Hidden Data -- that may resolve the issue. Looking forward to feedback! Thanks..
    • Yup. It keeps GPS info up to date while logging. 
    • Looks like GPS Status and Toolbox
    • https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/t-mobile-att-and-verizon-gear-super-bowl T-Mobile DAS upgrades and AT&T under the seats antennas are interesting. Hopefully someone gets pictures and details of the under the seats antennas.
