Sprint Phone Connect 3

Today, Sprint announced the Sprint Phone Connect 3 with a feature I'm sure some people will love: Bluetooth connect to your phone to answer calls on your cordless phone if it's closer than your cell.

Announcement is here: http://newsroom.sprint.com/blogs/devices-apps-and-services/third-generation-sprint-phone-connect-lets-you-connect-answer-mobile-phone-calls-with-home-phone.htm

 

Pricing is simple: $6.25/mo on Easy Pay with a credit of $6.25/mo on your account if activated on a Sprint Phone Connect Plan.

 

Hopefully it'll include fax capabilities so it can be a true landline replacement, but I won't hold my breath.

 

Anyone thinking of getting one?

As always, thanks for your report, Josh!  If it does have fax capability, therefore being a "true" landline replacement, I will definitely consider it.   :tu:

Yeah, yeah, welcome to 1997.  I got your fax machine right here...

These things will never be a "true" landline replacement until they can tap into the Caller ID databases to show the names of the callers, not just numbers. That alone would make me never want to buy one of these.

Some of us surprisingly still use fax machines, especial since we deal with people who don't know how to scan and email documents yet.

It is funny that people are still in 1997 with faxes.  Where I work, we use EchoSign and it is so much easier.

Working with lawyers and accountants... faxes are my life. Also I think Vonage offers a much better plan since I do a lot of international calling and faxing.

You should check out the latest google voice rates/plans.  You can just use hangouts with a google voice number and be 100% voip at no cost with extremely low international rates.  The VOIP quality is rather good.

I still need to be able to to fax. Vonage is the only service I have been able to fax with consistently.

We still have a fax machine in our house! I'd say we send at least 2-3 faxes a month, which I consider to be quite high for the year 2014!

    • It’s a neat and seemingly valid / effective strategy that, at least from my understanding, is only really used by VZW
    • Those are usually left over from the initial AWS deployment, so all run B13/B66 with support for BC0/BC1 (although that’s been shut off on most sites). No NR. Sites with the later Ericsson radios got an OTA update and broadcast B2. On those sites, a B5 OTA update was also available (and tested), but ultimately rolled back. Putting up all that power/spectrum severely degraded the B13 output.  The site atop Crystal Mountain is another story and uses the same setup as the site on the ridge near Neilton. These antennas were selected for their vertical beamwidth. Most modern directional antennas have small vertical beamwidths and would require extreme downtilt to cover the road next to a steep ridge. Thus, they would have a severely limited coverage footprint beyond the road. Omnis can be a better choice in these instances, especially when there’s LoS to the coverage objective (since they’ll generally have lower gain figures). Omnis also don’t run in to the horizontal sector edge problem, which can be difficult to optimize for with directional antennas that have complex or irregular 3D gain profiles. That’s why on a lot of sites on mountains, you’ll see wider antennas used. For example, the Verizon site on Joyce Ridge has three sectors with 80-degree HBW antennas. 
    • Do you know what RAN is behind those Omni's? LTE (bands?) are they pushing any NR through them? Very curious   edit: I guess I could check cellmapper etc but you might know more nuance!
    • N41 here has been expanded from 140Mhz to 180Mhz.  Speeds seem the same so they just need to work on backhaul
    • I noticed today that T-mobile has shut of B41 LTE in the Louisville area and widened the 2nd n41 carrier to 80MHz. That just leaves them with 5x5 B12, 10x10 B2, and two 10x10 B66 carriers on LTE, everything else is in NR (besides their 2G network). They have 20x20 n71, 20x20 n25, 5x5 n25, and 180MHz n41.
