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.

Hopefully we can finally start seeing some user feedback. So far so good! it is without a doubt the best device ive owned!!!

 

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.

Mine just arrived!!!

 

 

 

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

      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.

    • Interesting comment in the T-Mobile Q2 Earnings Report yesterday.  https://s24.q4cdn.com/400059132/files/doc_financials/2021/q2/NG_TMUS-06_30_2021-EX-99.1.pdf Specifically, this part: • Approximately 80% of Sprint customer traffic is now carried on the T-Mobile network • One-third of Sprint customers have been moved to the T-Mobile network Not terribly surprising to me that the customers who use the most data were most anxious to move to T-Mobile, while the majority of customers--who don't use much data--are perfectly happy with the Sprint network as it is.  I'm definitely in that category and in no rush to give up the superior coverage of the Sprint network for the possibly-superior capacity of the T-Mobile network. (Also, at least in my case, since LG phones are now discontinued, moving to a new T-Mobile phone means extensive phone shopping that I'm not looking forward to, rather than just picking up the latest LG device and being happy.) After all this time, I still have yet to see any Sprint site conversions that are operating.  I've seen precisely one that has new gear, but still only seems to have Sprint bands running on it (along with 312250).  I don't know what is taking them so long. - Trip
    • FYI the Evergreen hospital n41 panels are live. They do a great job of covering I405, I was able to maintain a B41 connection  to that tower almost all the way down to Kirkland exit 18.
    • Quite accurate if not conservative in the Metro Seattle area. In fact I know of two recent B41/n41 towers that aren't on the map.
    • Wouldn't surprise me, but I will say that the map looks accurate in terms of sites actually operating B41 gear, based on what I've seen.  I was able to use it to add a number of sites I haven't visited yet based on the map. - Trip
    • In a number of markets TMO effectively controls all 194MHz of band 41. Now I think n41 greater than 100MHz would need 5g CA.
