iPhone 4 and 4s User Thread

*Sigh*

 

So, you still have an iPhone 4 or 4S? I can't lie, I feel really bad those of you that do. But, you're real people too, so I figured you guys could use a thread also.

 

Feel free to discuss what it's like to only be on EVDO all the time (without complaining  :tu:), what you think it'll be like when you decide to get an LTE capable smartphone (maybe you'll soon be moving to the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus User Thread? Or the 5 and 5S thread? ;) ), any problems you're having, how much you (somehow :D ) love your phone, etc. etc.

 

Discuss!

What about the 3 and 3GS? I bet those are still floating around.

Don't push your luck there. Those aren't Sprint compatible. The 4 was, although it was for only a little period of time.

Oh man. When the 4s came out on sprint, I was so excited. My first iPhone. And I absolutely freaking loved it. The 4s is still my favorite iPhone design to date. I do like the 6, but something about the glass back made me love the phone even more.

I loved my 4 when it came out. The glass back was awesome. Antennagate wasn't though. :/ I didn't get the 4S since I had just signed up with Sprint earlier that year, and wasn't interested in the extra line.

That was why I didn't make a thread for them. Since we're a Sprint oriented site, I only included Sprint compatible models :)

My uncle still has one of these on AT&T ... must be painfully slow!

My 3GS died last month. The battery blew up like a balloon. It was sad.

My son's 4s just recently started really poor connection speeds on the cellular network.  So much so that downloads are impossible.

 

I've been searching the web to see if there was anything but could only find information from 2 years ago.

 

What a pain.

Yeah, I thought I should try that.    This seemed like the right place to post...

 

He has a 4s because he's 14 and doesn't really need data that much.    Perhaps in another year or so we'll upgrade him to LTE.

For everything else, there's wifi

    • T-Mobile wins more 5G spectrum over AT&T's objections So now it's official?
    • Just got back from Puerto Rico. I spent a lot of time going around the San Juan metro area, predominantly in Viejo San Juan, Santurce, Isla Verde, and a short stop in University Gardens.  T-Mobile's network still performs as well today as it did when I last tested and in my opinion is the best on the island. n41 is still at 100MHz in most areas though I did record a few areas with only 80MHz. Yesterday the FCC announced that they're finally granting T-Mobile their Auction 108 winnings so we'll probably finally see that increase. They also have 15MHz of n25 and 15MHz of n25 and 15MHz n71. The fastest speed I recorded while there was 922 down and 120 up, presumably aggregating n41+n25 and potentially n71 as well but I wasn't able to confirm that. A couple of things I noticed about their network are that their is a ton of split-sector n25 deployed in San Juan, much like in the U.S. I even noticed some n41 sites that had 4 or more sectors. The weirdest being the site on top of SJU Airport where they have 6 n41 sectors each broadcasting 80MHz of n41. AT&T SIMs roam on LIberty's network but they still treat it as the home network. In my opinion they're the second best network in Puerto Rico. Liberty is still using the AT&T MCC-MNC code and is pretty much coasting on AT&T's network upgrades. They have 10MHz n5 virtually everywhere but I never saw my phone connect to any other 5G bands. Their saving grace was just how much spectrum they have to aggregate across midband and lowband. I'd see combos like 10MHz n5 + 20MHz B2 + 10MHz B66 + 10MHz Band 30 + 5MHz Band 2 and get upwards of 200Mbps. Coverage was slightly worse than T-Mobile in my experience, even indoors which is a surprise given T-Mobile usually struggles a bit indoors due to their macro density. Verizon is roaming on Claro in Puerto Rico just as they have been for years. No idea if there is 5G roaming because I was connected to LTE the entire time. Toggling 5G didn't do anything and both pings and speeds weren't great. Speeds were in the 20-40Mbps range consistently and pings over 200ms. For comparison T-Mobile's pings are in the teens and Liberty pings are in the 40's even when roaming using an AT&T SIM. Claro's network is ok in my experience with nothing really notable about it.  — — — — — Here are some pics of sites that I took:
    • WTB instructed to process all 2.5GHz licenses across the USA. They are only giving up some spectrum in certain markets of Hawaii.
    • Is this just for licenses in Hawaii?
    • Yeah, it basically directs the bureau to proceed with granting the applications in the normal course.  It's no longer being held by the AT&T objection. - Trip
