Sprint 4G Rollout Updates Tuesday, January 31, 2012 - 7:46 PM MST
Since last fall, there had been talk of a Samsung Galaxy Nexus launching on American carriers other than Big Red. Sprint has finally announced several weeks ago that it is the another vendor slated for release in the U.S. Suffice to say, many of us out there, especially those adverse to heading to Verizon and paying its premium prices, are excited about the impending release.
The good news is that Google could be working on an updated version of the Galaxy Nexus. It has unofficially been dubbed the Galaxy Nexus Plus. There is much anticipation that it will be released before Sprint turns on LTE this summer. It’s not the first time an OEM has refreshed a device and re-released it to the market place, which works to our advantage. It’s rumored that the new Galaxy Nexus will have either a 1.5 or 1.8 GHz Texas Instrument OMAP4670 dual core processor. This would be a significant upgrade from the 1.2 GHz dual core processor found in the current Verizon version.
We don’t know anything about official specs, but it’s also rumored to have an 8 MP camera. This is a noteworthy upgrade to the 5 MP shooter on the Verizon model (which has been lauded by many techies). We already know that the Sprint model will come installed with Google Wallet, per previous announcements. Some rumors also point to a beefier battery as well. The phone should have all the other features that’s on the current Galaxy Nexus, so now all we have to do is wait.
People pay for cell phones and service for a reason.
If we wanted just to use unreliable WiFI, we wouldn't pay for cell service.
WiFi in stores usually requires 'ok, agreeing to the conditions', every.... single.... time.
Not an option.
Ok I read this first and chose my sim base on this list. I started having problems with high latency and not having RCS tho, people on Reddit were blaming my sim saying they had the 516 and that's the one I needed or I would get network issues. Just wanting to narrow my issue down tyvm.
I had to read your post a few times before I understood what you were asking. Some punctuation in there would help out a bit. I don't think the 51.... is going to work in your phone. (Ah Tim posted already).
BYOD meaning you purchased the device not directly from Sprint or a device that is not sold by Sprint but compatible with them such as Pixels and Moto devices.
These are the compatible sim cards. The 516TQ is not compatible.
