Oh, the benefits of stepping outside.

Forgive me, I'm still a bit excited about getting my new phone. I came home expecting to never see 4G and just flipped on the antenna just for kicks and BAM, 4G was found. If I'm anywhere near a wall I get signal and the speed increase is definitely worth it especially since the 3G towers here get really bogged down during prime time. Picture time.

That's true. However in my apartment complex, at the furthest point from our router 4G is sometimes more reliable. It's a G router with about 12 competing routers. I guess it's just awesome having so many options for connectivity.

Definitely is nice. I just moved my router so I could get better connectivity. The laptop pulls it up just fine but the phone doesn't have the range of the laptop.

I see, I have the Evo Design 4G which is rather new for a WiMax device so I assume it has some of the best antennas available. Also, all the extra stuff to make it a "world phone."

 

Well, phones in general don't have the same power Wi-Fi chip.

Ah, I see. I don't know that much about smartphones and their usage yet. I'm pretty tech savvy you might say, I understand the chipsets and CPUs and such from a technical side but lack entirely real world experience in the area. Brb, I'll show you my old phone... you'll understand.

That's right! It's Sprints iPhone killer from 2008! With full 3G support, GPS, and a Pandora subscription, this phone has it all! Need pictures? No problem, just hit that dedicated faux chrome camera button and bring that 2MP camera to life! It also features a full HTML web browser and supports some javascript. Buy it now with an Everything Unlimited Plan!

I wish my new phone was half the phone of the Instinct, lol.

Edit: Success! No longer "smoke signals," now I can sleep.

LOL, my wife had one of those. 3 phones ago... Not a bad phone for its time but not the iPhone killer it was billed to be.

    • I am using Starry for my home internet. I hope it doesn't collapse and make me go to cable.
    • Some of the other plans have been throttled, like the ED1500.  Fixes ultimately came, but it took several years iirc.  I moved on to the Sprint Max.  One of my hopes was I would get the billing transition sooner. Nope.  Wonder if they are going after the static IP.  Likely work around is VPN, especially with a smaller more obscure service.  Rumor has been T-Mobile would start transitioning Sprint Billing customers in earnest next quarter  -- wait, isn't that always the promise?
    • I've been using Samsung devices for a couple years and I've never been able to mirror without wifi? I'm not sure what exactly you're talking about.
    • Is there a way to mirror this thing to my smart tv without having to have wifi, the way I've always done with Samsung phones both at home and at work? Samsung phones do it with TCL and other smart TVs as well, not just Samsung TVs.  Samsung has saved me a ton of money over the years in this regard.  If I can't do this then it will absolutely be a deal breaker for me.  I still have the Samsung phone and can use it to mirror but I shouldn't have to default to a three year old phone for this.  
    • So, I've now gone to a legacy Sprint store and talked with various agents on chat, and I keep getting redirected to scripts, with folks throwing solutions at the wall that I know won't work. I have the Sprint Unlimited Plus business plan, which includes 1080p streaming (8 Mbps throttle). But since going TNX I've been throttled to 2.5 Mbps or less for video. Who do I contact and how do I ask them to fix this? 'cuz it sounds like someone has gotten this fixed before?
