Feel like I got jipped on 4G

Back in 2012, I bought an Evo Design 4g. WiMax. I was told by the sales rep that we would have 4g in my area by early 2013. I don't know if he was actually right, but eventually we got LTE, not WiMax. I feel like I was promised a service that was never provided for my phone, as I didn't get 4g till I got a new Nexus 5 at the beginning of March.

 

Did anyone else have this issue, or am I maybe over reacting? Is it a big deal or should I not worry about it?

Not really a place to post a complaint about Sprint. S4GRU is for productive conversations about Sprint services (WiMax, 3G, LTE, etc) devices and markets.

This horse has been beaten to death multiple times on multiple threads. Clear went broke. End of story.

Re-read the first emphasized phrase above, and then ask yourself the 2nd emphasized question.  Unless there's more detail involved such as hand-me-downing the Evo to someone else on a still-active line possibly, it would seem like you fairly well answered your own question.  ;)    

 

Even that aside, as a former Epic 4G (WiMax based) phone owner myself (and have had to revert back to it twice now while waiting for TEP claim replacements to arrive), in my area I knew going in I'd likely never see it here anyway....but still, technology and, in this case, networks evolve.  There's really no reason to dwell on the past vs. enjoy the present and look forward to the even brighter future.

ok i get it. stupid question. jesus christ, just delete my account. 4chan is friendlier than you people.

 

I wouldn't take any of it personally....alot of people (and I count myself chief amongst them here) just have edgy senses of humor and like to have a little fun sometimes.  No worries mate, and welcome to S4GRU btw!

S4GRU does not delete accounts. Your account and its posts remain S4GRU property. But you are free to leave at any time.

 

We are sorry that you were under misconceptions about "4G." However, if you wish to vent about your misunderstanding, you will need to do so elsewhere. Complaints here are not allowed because they serve no educational purpose.

    • Or, more simply, have a physical SIM that I can just move from one device to another.  Problem [already] solved.  Carrier doesn't have to be involved at any point in the process. I'll be among many (I'm sure) who will be glad to know if you see it.  Here in the DC area, Dish hasn't really done much yet.  I think I've seen some Dish gear around Richmond, but nothing here. - Trip
    • I like VICE.  They actually report on news no one else is willing to report. A lot of the places they go no sane person would want to be there.  They put their life on the line in many cases to get a story. From stories about the avocado wars in Mexico, being in the front lines against ISIS and Ukraine, to being embedded with terrorist organizations.   FAA might have some conspiracy 5G nut on their team or something.  At work ever year we have some one come in and say "hey, can you turn off the WIFI in my room? I don't want its radiation".  It doesn't make sense and their reasoning is always uneducated conspiracy. I can see someone coming into my office and acting crazy over C band disregarding everything else.
    • I think on esims it depends on how they implement it. If you can freely activate them on one phone while having it loaded on many that would be great.   I will let you know when I see Boost Mobile native 5g live here. So far no sign of even the plmn being active which I figure will be my first indicator. I look at changing networks with the TNX Sim and seem to get a full list of all carriers and their alternate plmns.
    • This is a result of the change I mentioned above, sparked by @PedroDaGr8 trying to log AT&T cells with a non-AT&T SIM that was reporting "out of service" but still capturing cell info. For the moment (subject to change as I keep testing and getting feedback), the "Connecting to" prefix will disappear when you connect in a scenario like that. I may adjust it to show a special prefix like "Limited LTE" or "No Data LTE" to make it more clear what is going on, but I also need to make sure that's only appearing at the proper times. When you were seeing just "LTE" in your screenshots, was there anything unusual about your connection? I see the app indicated you couldn't make calls; could you transfer data? Can you send a diagnostic report next time you see that?   I'm seeing this more frequently, unfortunately -- it has something to do with Android's power saving efforts I believe. Was the app in the foreground when it happened? When the screen updates, the notification and home screen widget are also updated -- but as seen with the widget for the past couple of years, Android doesn't always execute the update. I'm constantly trying to find ways around these limitations, since the app is useless if it's displaying stale data.
    • Bleh, hope not.  The eSIM is a huge step backwards to the bad old days and I have no desire to encourage their use. But in any event, maybe I should get Boost service, then, if people are already seeing it.  I can use it for AT&T until Dish native gear goes live in this area.  Have to ponder that a bit. - Trip
