Without a SIM, I get similar results here, too:

The difference is that Sprint band 25 LTE is available in my case, while VZW band 4 LTE is available in your case.

gotta be a setting or need of sim in

battery is amazing on wifi, I have just about 11 hours on LTE and I am at 36%. I don't think that is great. I will post screenshots of my battery usage later, I have one from yesterday also.

Which variant is your HTC 8X?  AT&T?  If so, there you go.

Yes.  But my VZW SIM doesn't work in it, either.

Check overage using either the Sensorly app or website. If you aren't familiar with sensorly, it shows reported areas covered by people who have gotten signal at that location. The maps that carriers provide are too generous with coverage and show theoretical coverage vs actual.

VZW's open access requirements are limited to its Upper 700 MHz C block licenses, hence band 13 LTE.  That would be my guess as to why band 4 LTE devices will not attach.  VZW is relishing getting back to its blocking ways.

 I ordered the 32gb so I have to wait. I put movies and carry large school files on my phone, plus the average size of apps keeps getting larger and larger.

I can put on my construction worker costume, come knock on your door, and take a look at your "sector."

sorry be noob-like but is sprint wimax=lte ?

and their 4g is different somehow ?

WiMAX is an older 4G technology and does not relate to LTE. LTE is a whole different thing.

No, by 2015 wimax should be gone. Look up Sprint 4g. Wimax and LTE are different. Back in 2010 or so Sprint went with WiMax to be the first to deliver "4g" while the other carriers opted for LTE which wasn't ready for consumer roll out. Later as Verizon and ATT rolled it out it showed signed of being better of the two. Sprint had to ditch WiMax and play catch up with LTE, hence why they are behind, also pissed a lot of people off who never got WiMax in their area because Sprint stopped the roll out. Long story short of course.

If you're going to stay with Sprint, you might as well get the phone for $200-$300 cheaper by renewing your contract or signing a new one. Cheap phone is the added bonus.

I am saving my upgrade for an expected beastly Note 4, 5 mpnths till the end of my old contract, and 1 up does not cut it.

Try going outside and running a network scan.  I bet that you will pick up Sprint LTE then.  Your closest site may not have received its LTE upgrade yet.  Even if it has, you may still not connect to band 25 LTE 1900 inside because the LTE signal is less robust than that of CDMA1X and EV-DO.  By the way, if you are interested in becoming an S4GRU sponsor, we have maps that show all Network Vision upgraded sites across the country.  So, you can view the progress on the sites in your area for yourself.

I am just curious. If say someone walked in to Sprint with a N5 from GooglePlay and wanted to start new service, would their pay 80 or 65 a month? If I am not mistaken, you only pay 65+monthly handset costs if you sign up for One UP.

I would love all the great specs on the Note devices, however, I'm 5'5" and those things are just too big in my hands. Can't hold and just use my thumb, ha e to use 2 hands lol.

      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.
