Way outdated stuff when on hold with Sprint

Recommended Posts

Just called in to Sprint to make a change to my account and was on hold. Recorded voices shared the followed fun news with me:

 

-Any Mobile Anytime is available with Everything Data plans! (Which don't exist anymore...)

 

-Sprint's 3G network is the most reliable! And they're the first to offer a 4G network! (Ummmm, how'd that go?)

 

Attention to detail goes a long way to creating good perceptions...

Woah, what department were you talking to!? The vast majority of them only have the horrible generic "Sprint Hold Music". I'll likely never forget it until the day I die. I can hear it now...

The one that sounds like someone is smacking loudly to a beat?

One Hour of Cisco CallManager Default Hold Music:

 

The gluttons for punishment can download an MP3 of it from http://www.thisamericanlife.org/radio-archives/episode/516/stuck-in-the-middle?act=1

 

Ever wanted to learn the history of the Cisco hold music?

I followed the prompts to make a change to my account. Wanted to return an Airave (moved and don't need it). Was placed on hold while they called Airave support.

Im willing to give Sprint a pass on updating their old on hold recording if they can just speed up NV progress.  With the way Sprint is creating new products/plans left and right, it might be best to hold off on making new recordings anyways.  Imagine that One Up on hold recording get killed after 3 months.

OMG this is what we use. I have hated from day day one. Old phone system used to have  recordings of Sacramento Symphony, which been defunct for at least 10 years. I pity anyone that has to sit on hold and listen to this....

Check Point technical support has the best hold music, as long as you get their Dallas TAC. It's worth calling just to see how awesome it is. Then hang up, because you probably don't have a support contract with them.

That's an oddly appropriate hold music. Here is Legere's appropriate hold music...

Was that the hold music you got?  No, when I called Legere, this was the appropriate hold music I heard...

    • T-Mobile Will Soon Prevent Early Payoff Of Phones Receiving Bill Credits If you finance a phone with T-Mobile it will remain locked until paid off but now you won't be able to pay off early. If you don't currently purchase your phones from the manufacturer here is another reason it might be a good idea.
    • Was in Red Hook again and I swear there are more Link5G sites as there are Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T small cells combined in the entire neighborhood. It seemed like every other street I turned down had one installed. Hopefully carriers will start hopping on them soon. Seems like a lot of effort to go through for no one to use them.  — — — — — T-Mobile converted the Sprint site on top of NYU Langone Brooklyn in Sunset Park. I first mapped one sector of it back in November 2023 but I thought it was a small cell so I never pinned it but I ran into another sector today which caught me off guard. I'm unable to find a permit for the conversion so it's definitely a surprise. There's another T-Mobile site 1 block away that T-Mobile initially installed back in 2019 so I'm kinda surprised they're keeping both considering the Sprint conversion is on a much taller building and could potentially provide much better coverage to the entire area.  — — — — —  Old permit for this new install expired but a new one was recently issued. It's gonna be similar to the site at 360 Forman St in Brooklyn Heights. Permit calls for only 3 antennas to be installed so I'm assuming it gonna be Band 2/41/66 and n25/41 only which is a bit of a downgrade from the now decommissioned full build that was on 871 7th Ave but in it's current state the nearest macro is a few blocks away and a small cell at Broadway and 55th is doing a lot of heavy lifting in the area so anything helps.  
    • Still not seeing any ULS postings for pending T-Mobile UScellular merger in Dane county Wisconsin.
    • Came across another Crown Castle Solutions multi-tenant oDAS node in Brooklyn. Located at 40.7002286, -73.9612666. Nothing on T-Mobile or AT&T so I'm assuming these are all Verizon nodes that Crown Castle is anticipating another carrier will hop on down the line.
    • Same with factory unlocked
