Good luck! The black hills are a beautiful place! Haven't been there in years even though I'm only 1 state to the east. If you enjoy fishing, head over to MN and visit some of our lakes for great fishing!

Good luck on your new job. So who will be your new cell provider.

 

There is only Verizon and AT&T.  So I have to choose between disembowelment or a lobotomy.  :)

Good luck! I just completed a move myself and it sure is hectic and stressful but it'll be over soon. Location is everything and it sounds like you've picked out a really beautiful place to be that will more than make it worth all the trouble.

 

I guess you'll be right there with those of us rooting harder than ever for some more rural buildout from Sprint. Onward!

Good luck at you're new job, Robert! I do my best to help new/uninformed members and don't worry about S4GRU, I and all of the staff and dedicated users will make sure that this is a smooth transition for S4GRU while you worry about making a smooth transition for your family.

Congrats and enjoy! You seem to have set this site in motion to an extent that can't be slowed even by your brief absence. It's an exciting time to be here, but I'm sure you'll be back before things get too crazy.

 

Good luck!

Hey, Robert,

 

I really appreciate all you have done, and continue to do here at S4GRU. It's amazing to see how far this community has come and, I'm honored to be a (small) part of it.  You've produced the best online community I've ever seen, along with our fine group of moderators, contributors, and experts; and, for that, I thank you!

 

Like others have mentioned, I will be sad to see you leave Sprint as your primary cellular provider but, not like you really have a choice. 

 

I wish you the best of luck with your new endeavors (not that you'll really need it) and, safe travels to you and your family. I wish you all the best with your new home! 

 

-Ben

No doubt. I'd love to see Sprint do a full NV conversion on the Rapid City WiMax Protection Site, and then expand coverage around the area. And maybe they can start next week? ;)

Just make sure to give Sprint your address, so they can put a tower in your back yard :)

With all the customers and enthusiasm this website has retained for Sprint, I think they could certainly throw you a bone. Assuming the WiMax at the protection sites will be shut down late next year like the rest of them and replaced with TDD LTE, I'll have my fingers crossed that by 2015 you'll be able to end your fling with Big Red.

How far is the closest sprint site? Maybe they'll give you an airave without the geographic limitation. ;)

Sprint CDMA? Cheyenne, Wyoming. Just a little far.

 

But now that Sprint owns Clearwire, there is technically one Sprint site in Rapid City. But it only has WiMax. No voice at all.

Sure, all he has to do is grab a Wimax phone and use VOIP for his calls. He can also use an airave at home with the workaround of turning it on in a Sprint service area and then moving it while keeping the power on.

 

The one and only true Sprint subscriber in Rapid City.  :P

Robert, like myself, is off the grid. Although to be fair I can order Sprint service here, it's just that 1X on ATNI roaming is like nails on chalk. And there's the whole Golden Ticket thing.

 

I'd pick VZW since their devices are for the most part unlocked and you can insert AT&T SIM's in for testing too.

Good luck with the move. I hope you enjoy your new location in South Dakota. There is a lot of beauty and serenity that can be experienced in the Dakotas and that entire area of the country.

 

I know that it is hard having to give up control of your "baby", but as you have mentioned many times in the past, and we all can agree, this place has a great staff that will keep this place going with great momentum. Hopefully soon there will be coverage in your area. With the TD-LTE expansion, the chances seem high. When I moved to Iowa many years back, I had to go through the same pains of having to give up my Sprint service. But, absence makes the heart grow fonder. We should start a petition for Hesse to air drop a fully NV upgraded stealth site disguised as a large Colonel Sanders lawn gnome in your new backyard. Let's make this happen.

 

Good luck with all that you do.
