Moto E

The Motorola website says the E supports CDMA secondary 800, so is it possible it'll end up on Sprint? It's 3G-only, but it's very nice for it's price range.

 

Edit: But on their website, only GSM models are listed for purchase. So maybe they'll sell a CDMA version through the carriers?

I don't know if it'll be on Sprint specifically, however, I do think it'll end up on Republic Wireless and other MVNO's. It may even end up on Boost or Virgin, though those two seem to be heavily pushing LTE over 3G.

 

I must say, the phone is very good for the price. Motorola has a solid design that they are sticking with and I love it. The camera and specs might not be the best but, a phone that water resistant, scratch, resistant, smudge resistant, and so much more for under $200 off contract is a killer deal.

 

Sprint could easily market this device towards parents looking to buy a first smartphone for their children.

A new Motorola device just showed up on the FCC's website today:

 

FCC ID:  IHDT56PJ4

Frequency bands: 800 MHz, 850 MHz, 1900 MHz

CDMA, CDMA 1X, EV-DO (no LTE)

Dimensions: Approximately 65.44 mm x 124.45 mm

 

These specifications line up with a Moto E destined for Sprint's network.

    • Went to Rolling Loud NYC at Citi Field this weekend. Over 60,000 people in attendance. Verizon is a sponsor of the festival this year so naturally they had a ton of COWs set up at the festival. I counted at least 4. As a result, they were virtually the only carrier consistently able to provide a data connection. I didn't see any Verizon 5G, only LTE. T-Mobile on the other hand was a very interesting experience. I was seeing an eNB 331804 which I'm 99% sure is a COW. They also seems to be doing some sort of traffic management because I noticed that if I left my phone idle in my pocket, it would drop down to No Service/SOS or sometimes it would sit on EDGE. But the second that I needed to send a text, make a call, or even use Twitter my phone would switch over to LTE or 5G to complete the task. In an active data session, my phone would constantly flip between Band 2, Band 66, and Band 41. Sometimes, I'd catch myself on the COW and other times I'd get pushed over to eNB 875868, the relatively new Sprint conversion nearby. The network moved at a snails pace though. Where Verizon took about 15 seconds to load Twitter or send a pic, T-Mobile could take up to a minute to complete the same task. Here's some photos of the COWs I spotted. I think that the first two are Verizon and the one in the distance in the third pic is T-Mobile's single COW, not nearly enough for an event that size.

    • You need to have Wi-Fi Calling enabled and also have made at least one phone call over Wi-Fi Calling prior to using the inflight Wi-Fi.
