I did my best to not go of the deep end when I read "social stigma" regarding a wireless carrier...

I see much more social stigma surrounding devices than carriers.

It's true. If I had a dollar for every time I've heard an iphone vs. android debate I could have retired by now. Although, I do think that if google and apple teamed up to make one super smartphone, I believe it would take over the world. Siri would "think" and google would know where to go :lol:

Back to social stigma on carriers, I do get crap from my friends(mainly joking) about how poor a carrier Sprint is. Which I don't understand. What works for you works for you, seems like a silly thing to make a class out of. I'm just glad that I won't succumb to living in a cardboard box from my carrier's fees. Sprint offers a lot for a good price :tu:

I actually over heard a shocking conversation while I was at work the other day.  A co-worker that has sprint was complaining about not having 4g even though hes been paying for it(I kept my mouth shut because I didnt feel like getting into at the time).  The fellow he was talking to then asks "How much do you pay a month?"  The fellow with sprint replies " $75 and change."  Then the other guy replies" Well I have 4g with Verizon.  I also pay over $100/month and oh yeah,  my data is capped at 2 gig.  Quit your bitching."

 

Made my pretty happy.

It's very true. I used to have Verizon and I won't lie I was happy with their coverage, especially in my neck of the woods, but the fees were crazy. I used to have 2 lines on verizon with 700 minutes, 2 gigs data, and unlimited text messages which came up to just under $200 a month. It was nuts. I now have 3 lines on sprint, have unlimited everything, and pay less than before.

    • August update finally arrived for S22+ unlocked tonight 👍
    • You also snagged a shot of the new oDAS in there, too.    I also spotted one while on LIRR above Atlantic Ave. They’re starting to really get rolled out now.
    • I have added T-Mobile eNB 879366, a Sprint convert site, to the list of gig+ sites, as I was able to break the 800 Mbps ceiling with it. I'm still trying to understand the DAS mess at LGA and locate them, but the bad thing about it is inside the terminals I can occasionally pick up the macros inside. It anchors 5G, which is great for a speed boost, but occasionally data hangs because my device is having a handoff frenzy trying to pick the best macro and/or band for the 5G connection.   I have spotted 2 more Dish sites, one on the corner of Church Avenue and East 16th (photo below), and the other is an in progress site co-located with Verizon eNB 81069.   At Verizon eNB 81069, the ports on the Dish panel weren't connected yet, brand new racks were being used on the roof Verizon is on, and it looks like Sprint's equip is still up on the building next door.
    • Neat!  Thanks.  Most of my issues at the moment are from inexperience.  I've never used AT commands and I'm bad at Python.  I'm not really sure what the best way is to send AT commands to the modem; socat seems to work, and there are Python libraries that should do it, but I don't really know what I'm doing.  - Trip
    • If you need any assistance, firmware or drivers with the radio; I am involved in Quectel's US based sales and field application engineer programs. I am working on the x62 reference RM520/N right now. They are a really fun product to work with.
