I have no idea what even cosplay is. I can he pretty naive. I asked my son, and he didn't even know. But he was raised by me. So there you go.

It is basically when people dress up as their favorite characters from fiction anime, video games, movies, etc. Girls tend to make modifications to make the costume a lot more sexy than the original. Hence the name cosplay costume play.

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

Glad someone from DFW is able to share their LTE experience with this phone.  I was beginning to worry a bit.  I ordered mine on 11/7 and it says I will get it on 12/3, but hopefully it will be sooner.  Can't wait!!!

Well, Sprint/Google have exactly 12 more days for me to see some type of fix or time-line for a fix with this LTE problem. I just took a step backwards from my Evo LTE, that at least got some LTE service. Now I have none.

That seems like a great recipe to alienate 50% of the population from becoming members/donators to this outstanding website.   :lol:

I bet you didn't think that was possible ;)

Yep, didn't expect that. It was a great phone besides the awful reception issues. Now I've got another great phone that supposedly has a good good signal strength but I'm in a market that's causing an issue with triband.

About 90 percent of the population does not care to know when, where, why, how -- they just blindly want it to work.  So, our potential audience is limited to roughly the 10 percent that actually seek to understand wireless networks and make informed decisions.  And of that 10 percent, seemingly 90 percent are male.  Well, do the math...

Now, your son is going to go out into the world and not know what to do because you failed to teach him about the birds, the bees, and cosplay.

 

:P

So out of those of us having LTE connectivity issues, has anyone contacted Sprint? What are they saying?

 

Sent from my Nexus 5

I've been told by chat that there are no known issues with the network, and they couldn't troubleshoot the phone. Then told to go to a Sprint repair store for further assistance.

I just had a chat with Sprint for my area, they are going to have Network Techs look at my issue.

That's good news. Every time they say "no known issues" I want to say ”that's why I'm letting you know ”

Just tried my local Best Buy and they refused to price match Google Play for the Nexus 5.  What a silly company decision.  I guess I'll have to buy mine thru the Play Store after all.

I would have bought it online right in front of the associate.

I'm sure this has been addressed many times over, but for those who are joining and jumping to the end of the thread... I was able to order a SIM card for the Nexus quick and easy at the following link:

http://sprintworldwide.custhelp.com/app/chat/chat_launch

Told them I needed a SIM for the Nexus and they said they will have it ship on the 11th.  Took two minutes with no hassle.

I ordered my SIM card from echat on Thursday right after I bought my Nexus 5 it from Google Play store.  It was quick and painless, but even today I still have yet to see a tracking #.  Let me know if you get a tracking #, as I might have to get back onto echat and see where my order stands.

I have contacted them numerous times. Finally got someone to open up a ticket. I gave them the site location that my nexus refuses to connect to.

Will do.  They actually said that SIMs were on backorder and were going to be shipping on the 11th.  That could by why you haven't gotten one yet.

Got the phone yesterday from Sprint, its great and luckily I don't have any issues with LTE connectivity whatsoever. Works great out of the box. My only gripe its with the voicemail. Receive a call, let it go to voicemail and it won't show any voicemail notification. Have to dial 1 to go into voicemail to check if I have a voicemail. Can't do Google Voice, because it doesn't work in Puerto Rico. My last Android phone (Gingerbread 2.3) at least I received a visual notification that I had voicemail. Now nada. Besides Google Voice, anyone receives a voicemail notificaction? Any ideas?

      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.

    • The real question will be the effect on the upcoming 2.5 EBS auction.  T-Mobile might be able to get very good prices with almost no implementation costs for much better service in small cities and rural areas.
    • What was the previous 600Mhz antenna?
    • Auction 107: Hit $80.9B.   Now going to enter the assignment phase where bidders can bid on specific spectrum blocks. Wonder how fast this will get online this year.  TMobile's head start with 2.5GHz is gonna get challenged.  I could see them taking the lead in wireless tests in 2021 but then the gap close in 2022.   Auction 108: Three blocks.  49.5, 50.5 and 16.5MHz. I wonder how heavy TMobile will buy here. It'll sorta clean up their holdings and I could see down the road if they don't bid they have to invest more time keeping interference out of the current existing white-space. Likely at least secure entire counties they already own a partial license in. Everything about 2.5 is such a mess.  
    • So very interesting find , at my home The 5G upper layer indicator was turned off on certain LTE bands, but still has NR connected. It was on a Band 30 5 mhz one tower, a Band 30 10mhz chunk on another, and my home tower the Band 2 5Mhz chunk now has no indicator on. I am wondering if they are maybe configuring the the tower for DSS NR band 2
    • Seems to be the norm in many markets. They're replacing nearly all existing antennas on sites here in New York too.
