Merger has been near for the last 2 years.

Think of it as the Lord of the Rings trilogy. They're slowly walking there.

I've been on the 6 month trial for Tidal that was pushed out back in February and let me tell you something. HiFi uses hella data. But the sound quality is awesome. Thank goodness for unlimited.

Not Sprint related, but look what was found on top of a T-Mobile tower. As if being a tower climber wasn't dangerous enough.

I've seen that photo before. Those are fake and are put there to discourage birds from landing on the tower. Snakes don't climb towers.

I've had it with these mothafuckin' snakes, on this mothafuckin' cell tower! ????

FYI, for people like me who had stuck with version 1.2.3 of Network Signal Guru, I'm now getting a message that it's outdated and requires an update.  Looks like the end of the line.

Me too. But I upgraded, and it's working for me on my Nexus 6. All screens. Including the Band selection. No extortion requests, so far. I haven't upgraded on any of my other devices, yet. It's only on N6 that I was getting the outdated message.

So it does.  I didn't realize they'd backed down.

However, I just upgraded manually on my Nexus 6P via Play and it is asking me to purchase a month at $48.99. So wait for it to prompt you to upgrade in the app.

It may only prompt on some devices that it deems new enough? I use it for band locking just fine on my Kyocera Hydro Icon (logging device).

I haven't seen this story posted here yet, so I figured to do so with some brief commentary of my own afterwards :

 

http://www.kansascity.com/news/business/technology/article155312894.html

 

The story is about Sprint buying out the other half of a retail store business partnership they've had for a few years with Dixons Carphone. Of course I don't know all the details about this, nor do I pretend to, but from what I've read, this seems like a great move by Sprint.

 

While I'm not a fan of wireless carrier retail, I think its good for Sprint to take full ownership control of these stores, while still working with such partners. I was wondering what others here on S4GRU think about the idea of Sprint possibly stop selling devices directly, but have partners selling devices through Sprint retail stores as means for Sprint not taking losses on devices they can put through on funding the network?

I dont know if anyone has posted about it, but Sprint's coverage map is displaying a massive expansion in pseudo native coverage in the south west and Nevada.

The tidal x sprint commercial is not something I'd expect from Sprint... Feels more like a tmo spot, but it is refreshing

From USA TODAY

 

Sprint to be exclusive carrier of 'Essential' phone

 

https://usat.ly/2taGi7y

 

NEW YORK—The Essential phone that is the brainchild of Android co-founder Andy Rubin now has an exclusive U.S. carrier — Sprint.Why Sprint?“We like to bet with where we think the market is going as opposed to where the market was,” Essential President Niccolo de Masi told USA TODAY. “I feel like we are a new brand and a new consumer electronics company and we are partnering with the network of the future.”Sprint has been making progress in advancing its network but it still trails Verizon Wireless, AT&T and T-Mobile in subscribers.De Masi points as well to the friendship Rubin has with SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son. SoftBank owns 83% of Sprint and Rubin is an advisor to the SoftBank Vision Fund.

Wow. Totally unexpected move here.

 

I wonder how long the "exclusive" deal is for and how much money was involved.

Hmm...that is a interesting comment he made. Interesting yet honest. Could he be signaling at something with Sprint?

Not sure if others here have seen it, but Sprint has a new "Status Page" with FAQ's for the Magic Box:

 

https://www.sprint.com/content/Sprint/sprint_com/us/en/shop/services/magic-box/status.html

 

This page is accessible via a link at the top of the Magic Box "Info Page":

Chat with someone on the site, they will sort you out.

Well I just chatted with someone at Sprint.  They said the Tidal trial is only for iPhones.  :-(
