I'm hyped about getting mine.  Unfortunately I may not be able to use it on Ting by the time it arrives.

Mine is here, but I could not find a SIM card at the closest 6 Sprint repair centers so I have to wait for Sprint to overnight me one and it will not be here until tomorrow. 

 

Oh well, stuck on WiFi for now.

Lucky you got the 16GB model, I guess.

 

Can't confirm any 32GB models that have MEIDs loaded with sprint, sadly.

So give us some more information on the improved signal strength you mentioned. Were you saying it gets a stronger LTE signal than your HTC One? This would be some awesome news.

I am not 100% sure what signal check is picking up but its under "LTE", might need to try to get into an engineering screen to get more details on ACTUAL signal strength, but so far its showing some pretty incredible numbers.

Can you confirm online that your phone has a valid MEID?  Or does it say "Hmmm… this number doesn't match our records, please try again."

 

Since you have a 16GB model, you should be good to go...

Installing the update now.  I will then plug in my ATT SIM first and check that out.  Then will do the Sprint SIM and try to authenticate.  And then try back ATT to see if it will go back after giving Sprint the MEID.  I'm concerned it may not go both ways once it is on the Sprint network.

Thus far, Sprint is offering on contract only the 16 GB models.  Is that why we think those ESN/IMEI/MEIDs are already in the system, while the 32 GB versions are not?

It definitely goes both ways.  You don't even need to activate - just enter the MEID into the device code box and see if you get the error when you click "check code".

Correct.  Now that we have even more evidence that this is the case, they'll hopefully be able to correct it.  I called google and let them know, so hopefully they are fixing it.

I get my 32GB Nexus in tomorrow. If no one else posts their experiences with theirs by then I'll let you know what happens.

I like the camera. It's taking better pics than my Note 2. And I don't need more than 8MP. This using HDR+.

I see that we can get both the GCI and PCI just like the G2! Now I am very excited!

What's the significance of GCI and PCI?

      Even though Sprint doesn't have the best coverage in my area. I do have lots of memories and nostalgia with the company. I wonder who else here will miss Sprint besides me?

      I'm new to this forum, and I've seen people mention cell sites with specific ID's (for example, SF33XC664). Is there any significance to these ID's, and is there a way to decode them? Also, how do I figure out what the cell site ID's are for towers near me?
      Thanks! I'm excited to start talking on this site more 😀

      Samsung Network Vision equipment are highly distinct and fairly easy to spot compared to the equipment that other vendors are deploying. Sprint is Samsung's first extremely massive American contract (baring Clearwire) so there  should be no issues in confusing these equipment for another carrier which happens often with Ericsson NV equipment.

      Below are images of Samsung equipment which includes antennas, remote radio units, base stations, and their mounting configurations.

    • Sigh.  In attempting to put the database back on my phone this evening after doing an update, it obliterated the database again.  It had been working as normal for several weeks. I think I'm going to [finally] apply the Android 10 update and see what happens.  Maybe it'll help... EDIT: When I rebooted, it came back up with data included.  No idea what to make of it.  Reimported from the file just in case, and it remained present, so we'll see, I guess. Separately, how hard would it be to make it possible to filter the Neighbor Notes?  I noticed earlier today that I'm seeing neighbors on Bands 12 and 2 pretty often.  Naturally, it tries to look for notes for those PCIs with PLMN 310120, even though they're clearly T-Mobile neighbors.  Would it be possible to add a "Sprint transition mode" or something where it matches Band 25/26/41 neighbor notes to 310120 and other neighbor notes to 310260? - Trip
    • Interesting to read an update.  But I remember a lot of people back then said, 'I will believe it when I see it.'  Now, 5 years later, I can't help but hear those voices even louder now.  They were certainly proven right.  Even if it does eventually happen. Robert
    • I know that. I'm talking about further down the line for 5G. What I'm saying is that with the addition of Sprint's PCS, they can expand LTE on PCS and shift HSPA from AWS to the remaining 5MHz in PCS-B so that they can have a 25MHz n66 carrier down the line and a 20MHz n2 carrier since n2 is not currently registered for greater than 20MHz carriers. The other solution would be to simply get rid of HSPA altogether and have two 25MHz n66 and n25 carriers since n25 allows for 25MHz carriers. Then T-Mobile could retain the 5MHz PCS-G for legacy LTE service.
    • Hopefully they get more Sprint users in T-Mobile since they are reducing B25 for Sprint to 2 5x5 blocks and I've also notice B41 LTE disappearing in LI. Sent from my SM-G988U1 using Tapatalk
    • HSPA+ isn't on B2 in NY. It's on B4 out there since they have 20x20 B4. Before the merger TMO only had 10x10 total Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
