I have to tell you all I am near tears right now.  I am so stoked that Marcelo listened to us, directly.  I am sure he listened to all the feedback he heard.  But I believe S4GRU was influential in th

I'm still shocked and amazed how successful S4GRU has been in staying online, remaining relevant and keeping quality members and staff all with member donations from a relatively small pool. When we

Maybe he's outside of the city limits. He'll tweet as soon as he's back in town with a data connection.

If they waive acces fees a lot of bills get cut in half.

 

Did anyone see in the sprint press release the mention of integrating wifi and wireless seamlessly?

Good question I am curious as well.

 

"It’s also the foundation on which we will roll out more LTE Advanced capabilities such as 3/4/5-channel carrier aggregation, higher order MIMO and more advanced beamforming, seamless WiFi integration and more."

If it really is going to be the biggest offer in U.S. Wireless history, as one of the promo videos claims, then to contrast it with two big plans from the past I'm aware of. One being from T-Mobile for legacy customers getting unlimited everything for $45 monthly, and the other being from Sprint at the Framily 7 to 10 line rate of $45 monthly.

 

So, if Sprint means they are going to have the biggest deal in U.S. wireless history, the price has got to be $45 monthly for new customers and existing customers who want to switch to it, for unlimited everything. Considering Sprint recently raised the unlimited pricing plan rate to $70 monthly, I'd think a $45 monthly rate would have to come with some sort of stipulation, such as a speed cap.

 

I'm not sure what else really could be done, other than unlimited unrestrictive video watching, but then I'd much rather the $45 monthly unlimited be implemented instead.

One other thought I just had if Sprint really wanted to make a huge move on things tomorrow, in regards to pricing.

 

Recently, Verizon announced a $30 no data plan. Sprint has made some hints to "half", which could indicate Sprint unveiling a $15 monthly starter plan with no data, then allow people to add data to it, similar to what I've been proposing for quite some time.

 

If Sprint did this, then it will be interesting what the per gb would be. If they charge at $1.50 per gb, it could be used as a major reflective discount in contrast to the $15 per gb rate the other carriers charge. That would make the whole thing a massively amazing deal, though a bit unrealistic at that low of rate.

 

Still, if Sprint is serious at countering T-Mobile's "move" from last week, then this would do it, without the strain of unlimited video.

Marcelo hitting Twitter hard today. ????????????????????????????????

 

I've always wished Sprint would hype more and do more to promote announcements. Not like that stupid hype they did for that Sharp Phone back when Marcelo was taking over. Talk about let down.

Wait....didn't Marcelo say in the earnings calls he was going to announce something about the leasing company within coming weeks ? Or something along those lines...maybe the announcement tomorrow is tied to the leasing company

I'm definitely going to check and see what the new plans are tomorrow. If they match or are around the kind of deal I was hoping to get on the ED line that doesn't seem to be happening anymore, then I'll consider going to Sprint. Otherwise I'm heading over to Verizon and getting the 18gb plan in the meantime until Verizon gets the holiday promos available. I'll get the Droid Turbo 2 and the Lifeproof Fre case with it, if I go with Verizon.

 

Either way, it'll be great leaving T-Mohell.

i thought the CFO was quoted in the past week or so saying no new lower priced plans.... 

 

half is key here... and for existing customers - which also seams like no new plans.  

 

half.... half the time to upgrade? which would tie into leasing deal mentioned above maybe.   half off leasing if you keep the device the full term?

I saw the article today not quite sure online. But it did say that there wasn't going to lower their prices because they are competitive where they currently stand.

All I know is that with all of this sizzle that he's selling there'd better be some serious steak served up tomorrow or else the tech media is going to (happily) eviscerate him and the company, figuratively speaking.

In other news I engaged that troll Cortez and my reward was a warning from the howardforums.com moderator. So they allow the magentans to flood the sprint subforum without consequences, but if you try contra attack the trolls you get a warning then banned gotcha.

    • I agree. I think AT&T site SB25 at Oksams corner would be a much better fit. 
    • Anyone in central PA region/Shentel land on this phone that can speak to recent behavior?  Considering upgrading this this or possibly the LG V60 5G otherwise and moving my wife to my G8X, but trying to get opinion/feedback on it.  If you chime in, state whether you're still pure legacy Sprint vs say TNX mode as well please for clarity.
    • Thanks for the analysis on those sites! The Juanita-Woodinville Sprint tower at 47.74330, -122.19131 was mostly a surprise because:  The T-Mobile tower at 47.74440, -122.18346 is only 2000ft away and the T-Mobile tower at 47.74641, -122.20140 is only 2700ft away. The fact it NEVER showed the 312-250 PLMN. This is despite me trying hard to find out if it or the Sprint tower at 47.747532, -122.18941 were going to be keep sites.  If this were to fill that geographic dead zone, I would imagine something located closer to Oskam's Corner would be more suitable. I guess it is a case of a bird in the hand is worth more than two in the bush.  As for T-Mobile's roll-out of B41/N41, I have to say I am impressed with the speed of deployment. Driving north on I-405 from the start at I-5, I locked my phone to B-41. I did not lose my T-Mobile B41 connection until I reached Kirkland. Even then, there was only a small gap and I likely would have been able to reach north of the 124th in Kirkland without issue. It seems like they are upgrading a number of sites in suburban Snohomish county near the King/SnoCo border.
    • Looks like they're continuing their streak of buying up T-Mobile MVNOs. I wonder how they plan on unifying all of them under one brand down the line, if they plan on doing that at all.
    • Block the DNS lookups (return NX or something like 127.0.0.1) for epdg.epc.mnc260mcc310.pub.3gppnetwork.org and epdg.epc.mnc120.mcc310.pub.3gppnetwork.org and epdg.epc.mnc530.mcc312.pub.3gppnetwork.org And/or block UDP outbound to 208.54.0.0/16 port 4500. You could probably just block all outbound to that subnet, but if you want to be sure it just blocks wifi calling, also restrict to that UDP port. The latter is probably preferred, but the DNS block should work if you don't have the ability to set outbound firewall rules on your router. Regarding the handoffs, that has always worked reliably for me. But you might have to make sure that "always on mobile data" is enabled under developer options.
