I had a Sprint product development employee reach out to me this morning after reading this thread. His message says:   Robert via Samsung Note 8.0 using Tapatalk Pro

4.4.2 supposedly fixes the voicemail notification problem in the Nexus 5, but after sideloading the update it still doesn't work. Does it work for anyone?

And I am still wondering... What voicemail?

I guess standard voicemail notification directly from carrier to the OS without an app, like Google Voice or other visual voicemail apps. Press 1 on the dialpad to access it.

I saw posts on the Sprint Community board saying the same thing, so it's probably not just you.

Is it pretty easy to get a sim at a corporate store now? Just ordered my nexus.

Ironically, my sprint corporate store fed me a line and wouldnt give one up.  I went to a sprint third party retailer and they were more than willing.  Was told all sprint stores were sent a bunch specifically for the nexus.  He had a stack of like 5-10 that had come in the week before (this was last week).  Take that for what its worth though.

They are free, correct?

Yeah, so don't let anyone try to charge you for one.  I think we had someone report on here that the Sprint rep didn't want to give him one without forking over $50.

Yes, should be.  You can try telling them Sprint CS sent you in (which they do in some cases).  In my search for one, Sprint International CS offered to call the store and ask about stock as well.  You can tell a little white lie and tell the store CS sent you in and if they say they have none tell them CS called the store the other day to check and were told they had plenty.

 

If you think about it, it be hard to have a cell phone store, push for all kinds of activations by your employees but not have SIM cards on hand to activate the devices.

That may have happened to someone else too, but it most certainly happened to me.  The guy was awfully rude about it too, like I was wasting his time.

Unfortunately for him, you were "wasting his time."  The commissioned sales employees are not getting paid for forking over free SIM cards to existing subs.  And that likely explains the attitude some have encountered.

Fair enough, as I got this attitude from the sales guy, but I got it considerably worse from the tech guy, who shouldn't be commissioned or anything.  He was far more condescending than the first guy.  He wouldn't give out "any of his equipment" or even look at the N5 to show me that it needed "a special sim" without me forking over $50 on the spot.

If not, I contacted Sprint Worldwide Chat and they shipped me a sim card right away, for free, no questions asked.  I contacted them last Wed, and they got it to me today for free--No shipping charge either (also, they do have a 12 dollar overnight shipping option).

...lol.  Lucky.  I ordered mine through worldwide chat on 11/4, and there has literally been zero movement on it.  I actually just pulled up the order on Sprint's site.  The order is there, it was "last updated" on 12/10/2013, but there is still no tracking number, and no status.

If you are on SERO the worldwide chat will tell you they can't help you because your a business customer or something like that. At least that is what they did to me and I ended up going to my local store.

      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.

    • If they trade it'll be AT&T most likely since they own the B block and Bluegrass has C block. 
    • Initially T-Mobile was simply slapping n41 panels onto existing sites which meant that NR+LTE aggregation aggregated all available LTE bands with NR. Now, T-Mobile seems to be replacing 600/700MHz antennas every time they add n41 and as a result, the city is getting covered in split eNB IDs. On a local (legacy) 600MHz site by my home, when I connect to n71 it's n71 + Band 2 + Band 66 + Band 71 or Band 12 for a combined total of 50MHz of spectrum. However on my home site, because of the split eNB, when I force my phone to connect to n71 it only aggregates n71 + Band 2 + Band 66 for a total of 45MHz of spectrum. It seems weird that T-Mobile is allowing this to happen instead of fixing it so that they can squeeze as much performance out of their network as possible. 5MHz of LTE is not much but it's still an extra ~37Mbps of speed and capacity that could be provided in NSA mode. Interestingly this problem is not something I experience in LTE-only mode much anymore. My phone seems to have no issue aggregating LTE bands across the split most of the time.   Another thing that has been bothering me is that according to the FCC dashboard T-Mobile has 400MHz of spectrum in the 39GHz band here in NYC that they won in December of 2019 but they haven't done any upgrades to actually use that spectrum here. Instead they've been relying on the two 50MHz blocks aggregated together in the 28GHz band which performs worse than n41 on average.
    • Betting VZW trades that B12 to TMo for B66 eventually.
    • Confirmed that AT&T is running dedicated n5 here, at 10 MHz, by process of elimination. LTE is 10x10, and H+ is 5x5. They might be running DSS or n2 or n66 but I kinda doubt it. Guessing they aren't running H+ on every site anymore either; signal appeared a good bit weaker than the B5 LTE signal when I band selected to it. Also, B14 is pretty obviously not on every site here; signal levels at my place are comparable to B2 and, well, 700 should be a lot better than that. Explains why I wasn't seeing B14 aggregated normally. Though apparently they have 25 MHz of B66...one 15 MHz carrier, one 10 MHz.
