Welcome to the User's thread! We have now closed the previous thread as people are ordering and receiving their Aqous devices now. Anyone received one or held one yet?

OK...I have ordered mine. $239 from Sprint online. I'm waiting on tracking info. But it probably will stay put until Monday.

The position of the front facing camera is fine on the bottom and allows the coolness of the screen. Fits fine in the pocket. Good clarity on phone calls.

 

How's signalcheck and the reported info?

One of the Youtube reviews of the Boost model says he put in a Tmpbile SIM and it worked fine...???

Proven false. Device connects to sprint 3g without sim card.

Oh, so the phone is reading the Tmpobile SIM as nothing at all and just defaulting to Sprint/Boost?

 

Makes sense.

 

Phone should be available to unlock for international use right?

Why, exactly, are you getting this? It's not like you have Sprint service.

 

I use Sprint service when I travel.  And it seemed like a good device to play with, given its very inexpensive cash price.

You keep a Sprint line just for traveling? Wow, that is some dedication.

 

Well, I do run a Sprint site.  ;)

 

I used to just use a Ting line.  But I am going to go back with a $60 unlimited plan now with the Aquos.

Has anyone been able to use the phone yet? I told my mom it would be a good phone for her due to its low price. The only real negatives I've heard are camera isn't the best, and call quality isn't great due to the speaker being behind the screen and it can be quiet on both sides of the call. Can anyone verify this?

Call quality has been good to me.

Good to know. Thanks.

I'm surprised you didn't get a test product. How dare they make you pay for it.

 

I've played with it and I honestly like it. It is a very nice looking phone.

    • Another SCP beta is rolling out now, with some bugfixes as usual but also some fun new options to test: Non-standalone 5G-NR cells can now display Site Notes. This feature works in the same manner as how neighbor cell notes are displayed, requiring a PCI and your device's location. This option is enabled by default. As is the case with neighbor cell notes, you cannot edit NSA site notes directly unless there is an NCI being reported (which I have never seen); it uses the previously recorded standalone log entries. Like neighbor notes, if a cell has been previously logged but there is no note, you will see the distance information only.   Logging cells that are not reporting a valid PLMN is now possible. This option is disabled by default, but if you enable it along with two other options (log sites with missing GCI/NCI and to log sites with missing TAC), you should begin logging most NSA 5G-NR cells. A PCI is needed at a minimum, which is not always reported depending on your device and network factors. ("Sites" will be renamed to "cells" on the Preferences menu in the next update.)   Users can enable an option to display LTE cells above 5G-NR cells in the app if they choose to do so. This option is disabled by default. Should help improve the readability of your screen if you have NSA 5G-NR cells constantly appearing/disappearing. Please give these options a try and let me know if you notice any issues.. thanks!
    • Not yet. We probably won't see one submitted until construction on the new building is substantially complete. 
    • Yes, that is where the site used to be. All the antennas were removed. I hope they add a new site soon. Have any permits been submitted for a new site?
    • Looks like there's a slightly taller building going up next door to where the decommissioned site used to be. Taking a look at StreetView, T-Mobile likely decommissioned the site because the east facing sector would blocked by the new building. If I had to guess, T-Mobile has already agreed to move to the roof of the new building and is just waiting for it to be completed to install the site there. What they should've done is just rearrange the sectors in the meantime but it seems like T-Mobile just bit the bullet and decommed the tower in the short term. — — — — — A permit was issued for a Sprint conversion at 150 Prospect Park West, finally filling in what is T-Mobile's largest coverage gap in Park Slope. Verizon is collocated on that building and AT&T has placed small cells along Prospect Park West to fill in coverage there while T-Mobile struggled using two sites, one at Grand Army Plaza at the far north and another at Bartel Pritchard Square to the far south.  
    • Yep, you can see the site was taken down between Aug 2022 and Apr 2023.
