I just read that the 32gb N5 will not be allowed on TEP at Sprint.  What are people doing for insurance? None?

"Can veryone talk about none PCS connections outside the sponsor /premier sponsors areas?"

I mean if we don't say site IDs or talk about the stuff in sponsor areas.

 

Sorry for double post Tapatalk won't connect to edit today.

No insurance for me.  Never needed it once in eleven years.  Cancelled it for good last year.  Also if you can afford to replace your device, insurance is useless.  Thirdly, this device is relatively inexpensive.  What's the deductible for TEP, $200?  $150?  Not worth it in my mind.

Hey guys, any word on the black 32 gig being able to get activated?

Why would you want insurance on a $400 retail device.  Monthly fee plus a $200 deductible?  Where is the value in that?

Once you get a SIM card, you are good to go now with the 32GB devices.

Thanks for the reply. Damn another waiting game for the sim.

For those stores claiming no sim cards here is a tip.  Don't tip your hand to them.  Tell them you are looking for a sim card for the galaxy s4 or htc one.  DO NOT MENTION the Nexus 5.  When they say yeah we have those then get out the Nexus and assure them it will work.  

 

For some reason the Sprint stores are under the impression that there is special sim cards for the Nexus 5.  So I did the above workaround with no issue.

 

Yep, that's why I tried to just ask for inventory for the SKU listed earlier.  The first store claimed they couldn't search by SKU (?!) and the second came back with a "you're looking for a Nexus 5"

Hilarious! My local corporate store said they're not allowed to give them out and I didn't even mention anything about a Nexus.

When you activate the Nexus 5 with Sprint, they need to link your MEID with your ICCID on your SIM card. If you pop in a SIM card with an ICCID that is tied to another Sprint device, you will get a warning that your SIM card is locked after awhile.

 

So just make sure any existing Sprint SIM tied to another device gets delinked and activated for the new device.

Is there a way to delink the SIM ourselves?

My understanding of the Rules is that proprietary information or things that you'd only understand were significant because of proprietary information has to stay in sponsor areas. But anything you discover or confirm with your phone can be posted in "public" as long as you don't discuss Sprint internal ID numbers or schedules or map coordinates or the like.

Worth Ave Group insurance on my current phone but I'll drop it once I switch to the Nexus 5. Not going to carry insurance on a $350 phone.

My phone comes today, sim comes tomorrow. Just to confirm, I won't mess up the Sprint activation process tomorrow by turning the phone on without a sim and setting it up over WiFi, correct?

I didn't find a way online.  You probably have to call, or possibly chat.  :(

Have you received tracking info from Sprint yet on the SIM card? 

 

My order still shows "In process".  The order was set up last night via Worlwide Chat w/overnight shipping.

Yes, I've got tracking info and delivery notification for tomorrow through MyUPS system.

I am assuming the only way to "delink" a sim would be to put another one. The system probably sees the phones skew and requires a uicc number attached. Similar to how every subscriber is required to have some sort of device attached.

Thanks. With the 32's working now for activation is the online system wanting the MEID or the other number? Or does either work now?

      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.
