I hope to upgrade as well

 

 

 

Why not switch to Android?

Depends on preference, I like android but I'm suited better for Apple, I'm just glad we've got choice haha

I will be watching this closely... I am almost for sure going with the Galaxy Note 3 on my Sprint line (or maybe a ONE MAX)... but I might port my Net10 Nexus4 line to the in-laws Verizon plan onto a new iPhone.  But Apple will have to impress (I have been very disappointed with the 4S and 5 -- almost no improvement on the 4...)

The iPhone 5 is a HUGE improvement over the 4s and especially the 4.

That is really bashing the 4 and 4S then. 2 posts in this thread and you are bashing apple already?

I had the 4 and my wife had the 4S -- very VERY little difference (other than Siri, which other than to find where to bury a dead body was not very useful).... I have only played with a 5 a bit in the store -- but other than an extra row of icons seemed nearly identical to my wife's 4S...

 

Don't get me wrong -- great phone.  Better in some ways than Android and worse in others.  Biggest deal is Apple has stalled while Android has really picked up on many of it's shortcomings. (Wife went from EVO to 4S to GS4 and has seen this evolution 1st hand)...

What? what are you talking about.. Just offering

I was actually trying to be funny. Seems everybody gets excited when somebody talks about Android in a iPhone thread and vis-versa.

 

I forgot to add the smiley face. :)

 

I'm an iPhone convert (from Android). I still love Android, especially the newest iteration. iPhone just works better for me and my wife. I prefer Apple's ecosystem.

 

I wish I could have both, honestly. Especially when the new TriBand phones come out.

Oh man. This means this one will launch at $200, the iPhone 4 will go EOL, the 5 will become $100, and the 4S will become free at POS with an upgrade or new line activation. Siri for everyone!

 

(Personally, due to things like LTE and BC10 CDMA, I'm hoping they announce a "low-cost" iPhone for the "free" category and just drop the 4 and 4S entirely. But, that's a Sprint-centric viewpoint)

I think they will.. It will be the 5S and the 5C.. Maybe a 4S for the third category though...

Yeah, if the 5C comes out, they'll either have 4 devices, or drop the 4 and 4S and just have 3 like they have in the past.

 

They might even keep the 4 and 4S around for a few months until inventory dries up, and then tell everyone to buy the 5C.

 

Who knows! It's all speculation until that very day.

Guys...let's be respectful of people's choice of smartphone platform. iOS is a perfectly viable platform for many S4GRU members. There really isn't a better OS, there is just a better one for you. I may start removing pointless/unhelpful comments about iOS or Android made by fanboys. Let's keep our comments constructive! Thanks.

Of course all speculation, but without rumors and speculation it would be no fun.

 

I read somewhere this morning that the thinking would be the 5C would have inexpensive insides -- but in keeping with Apple's way, it would likely be something like 4S stuff (keep using existing supply chains and lines etc)....

 

That would likely make it a 5C budget, 5 value, and 5S high-performance three tier system... which makes total sense (and gets all the phones on one 4" size screen).

 

Which to me is a mistake... I think rather than one-size different performances, they would be better to have a 4S size, 5S size and a larger 5" or so size...

I like to think I remain contructive in all posts, hope I am anyways...

 

On the other hand, iOS is totally not viable for the S4GRU community... NO SENSORLY!

Just because Sensorly isn't capable of mapping on iOS right now, doesn't mean that once iOS 7 is released that it can't be updated to support it. For me, iOS is more viable of an operating system than Android after I went through 4 defective phones in a one year period. I'm still willing to give Android another shot later down the road, but not right now.

    • T-Mobile has been building out new rural sites for the last 6-8 months. It may not be as noticeable elsewhere, but we have had 40+ new sites come online in Nebraska. There have been new builds in Iowa, Kansas, and Missouri as well. If you change the site data to display hex values on Cellmapper, look for sites that begin with 05D, or 062 - 063. Those are new sites in the last 6 months.
    • New Vertical Bridge site built for Tmobile near Red River Gorge area.  Maybe T-Mobile is starting to build out new sites and colos in rural areas now...   https://imgur.com/a/Tv3Ge0w
    • I would say it is as "safe" as any typical beta release at this point. There are some things I am still ironing out, but nothing that severely hinders normal usage of the app.
    • 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..
