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

I am now the proud owner of a Nexus 5!       Sent from Josh's iPhone 5 using Tapatalk 2

Mine just arrived!!!

Nexus 6? Doubt it. A Nexus tablet? Maybe.

 

Just two days ago the hot news was that HTC was making the Nexus 6 (again). Now it's Motorola? I wouldn't bother with any of the rumors at this point.

Don't sleep on Motorola.....the Moto X is pretty spectacular, and the Moto 360 looks awesome! 

 

5.9 inch screen is a bit much tho..

I would buy a Motorola Nexus 6. The Moto X has been a solid device, especially in the RF dept. The only thing that made it a no go for Sprint was that it was limited to only Band 25. Count me intrigued.

Just haven't been too impressed with Motorola recently. I'm open to changing my mind of course but I'd rather see an HTC Nexus 6.

Playing with the Moto G LTE side by side with the Nexus5 impressed me. Excellent phone in RF, speed, and definitely price. HTC's track record on phones has left me to not even look at their products the past couple years.

Lately my stand by time has been terrible. The last two nights I left the phone off the charger and it drained over 50% battery. Any idea what could be causing this? The battery screen showed WiFi as the top user. I love this phone, but it seems to have more battery drain problems than I have had on all previous devices combined.

take a lot of pictures recently? My battery life tanks till it finishes backing the photos up.

I took a few from my tablet, but I haven't touched the phone camera in a while.

My sister owns a Moto X, and she (on sprint mind you, single band) refuses to give it up!! She absolutely loves it!

 

Also, as Robert has stated, the RF performance is solid! B25 is almost on par with .15 N5 radio

I don't really care who makes the next nexus. As long as it continues to be the same quality I've come to love out of my n5 (which I'm sure google will expect). However I really don't want a phablet.... I have really long fingers and larger than average sized hands and the nexus 5 is the perfect size. I just want to be able to fit my phone into my pocket and not have it look like I'm carrying around an external hard drive.

I am hoping the N6 is still GSM/CDMA like the N5 and not back to GSM.

Sprint got skipped with the N4, not to mention majorly delayed updates for the Galaxy Nexus.

Now that they have an established good relationship with Google, I don't think that will be an issue.

I'd definitely consider a Motorola Nexus. I just hope it's not 5.9 inches like the rumor suggests, which is too big IMO.

 

The Moto X is a pretty solid phone. I had signal on the Moto X where the LG Nexus 5 had nothing, mind you that was all on AT&T. The only thing I'm not crazy about with Motorola is their AMOLED displays, they just aren't bright enough in direct sunlight.

I would rather just have another n5 + double or triple battery size/time.

 

oh, and better b41 sensitivity or scanning.

So i have attempted to switch back to Sprint from Ting. I wanted to lower my bill about 6 months ago and i switched to Ting which has been a great experience. Now that i have been using my device more, i decided to switch back to Sprint on a Framily plan. The problem is my old account is in the Sprint system still and my Nexus 5 can't be activated for some reason. The Sprint system is not taking my MEID/IMEI. I have been to the Sprint store a few times and have talked to ALOT of Sprint reps in Finance, Sales, and Customer service. The funny thing is, ATT and Tmobile have no issues when i put in the IMEI on their sites to activate service. Seems to be a Sprint side issue. Im going to a Sprint Corporate store tonight, but im doubtful they will get this figured out. So frustrating...

You need to ask ting to release the imei back to sprint.

Thanks for the response lilotimz,

 

I called Ting and nothing is holding it back according to them. The Sprint store was using the hex version of the MEID/IMEI to try and activate, but they may have had to use the dec version of the number for it to work. I'm going to have them try both tonight after work.

If it doesn't work this time, don't call, open a ticket with Ting online. lilotimz is right, I had to do this procedure with one of my in-law's phone.  MEIDs in Sprint's system are either locked to "wholesale" (i.e. MVNO) or "corporate" (Sprint itself).  For whatever reason, no one at Sprint seems to know how to switch between them and Ting doesn't remove it from the wholesale list unless you specifically ask them to.

Awesome, thanks for the heads up. I have created the ticket. Hopefully if anyone else is on Ting and they see this, it will help them get their Nexus 5 back on Sprint should they switch back.

      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.
