Well as much as I bitched and moaned about sprint needing to take care of current customers, instead of always giving to the "new" custys..

 

THEY DID IT!!!!

 

Got a text a few days ago, and didnt think much of it....till today i was in the store checking on those 2 G2s I got took on :angry:  :angry:  :angry:  :angry: ...   (more in a min)   Anyway I asked the guy about it....he said he heard they might be sending out something to certain customers to head off people leaving...(though he didnt  know what the criteria would be)   but those who might be tempted by T-mobiles deal...

 

So i called and asked the lady, and she informed i was correct in how i read it...AND you can of course buy the bigger data bucket if you would like, and still waive the $15 fee per line :tu:  :tu:  :tu:  :tu:  :tu:  :tu:  :tu:     HOW FREAKING SWEET IS THAT???

So the G2s, so back in like aug or sept, i bought a couple phones, and ended up getting took and buying bad esn phones  :angry:  :angry:  :angry:  :angry:  :angry:   (it WONT happen again)  But after reading around the web it looked like they do in fact release them after sometime....I read like 6 mths to a year....but these things are in MINT condition, so i thought, well they are triband, and spanky new ill hold out....

 

CHRISTMAS MIRACLE.....So i had gone in to ask the guy to check them out...just cuz.....and the 1st 1 was good :w00t:  :w00t:  :w00t: ....so ran out to my truck grabbed the 2nd and  :drool:  :drool:  :drool:  :drool:  :drool:  :drool:

 

they are both unlocked and ready to be activated!!!!  DONE.....need less to say my daughter was pretty happy...

They did this for the shared plan my family is on. We used to have the 1500 minutes shared everything and unlimited data plan. We have four lines for a total of 100 dollars a month plus taxes. They did waive the access charge. Curiously though, when we open the sprint zone app on our phones, the allotment for data is 40gb rather than 20gb. Asked a rep and they said it was part of the promotion.

I've been thinking about contacting Sprint to see if I can switch from ED1500 Family and still have the access charge waived for my 6 lines.  The problem is, I just upgraded to the G3 back in July and used my subsidized upgrade.  Will this reduce the possibility of Sprint waiving the access fees?  Also, does this include legal tethering?

Hotspot is included. I have been using it at the cafes when wifi bandwidth is spread too thin. My Dad's and Brother's lines were upgraded with a 2 year contract a month before switching the family over to the share pack. I upgraded to a galaxy S5 in July. I am not sure what the limit is to the ammount of lines for the share pack.

Great!  Thanks for the reply.  Did you call or go to a Sprint store to make the change?

This would be our second full month on the plan. Even when line fees kick in at the end of next year, we will still save about 100 dollars a month from the previous plan. We have never gone over 8gb between the four of us so it made sense to switch.

As long as you signed a contract before aug 22 you are good.

I am locked into a 2yr, and even know I can't get more than one bar on 4g LTE, the 3 g still gives me full bars, so I'm happy, maybe if I got rid of my m7 " dinosaur " as someone put it, I would get higher speeds.....

Having access to B26 and B41 makes a huge difference.

I called and was shot down on waiving of the $15/line.  They said it was a promotional offer.  I may call Account Services to see if they can do anything for me.  Perhaps it could just be that I need to play CSR Roulette.  Some may know more than others.

Apparently this is only for targeted accounts.  I got 4 different answers in the same number of phone calls.  I was told I could add a tablet for free and be eligible and have the access fees waived, then I'm told I can't.  I'm so frustrated.  Their customer service still needs a lot of help.  The supervisor told me that because we used 21GB of data, we weren't targeted as the promotion has to be the 20GB plan.  I say that's ridiculous.

This does not benefit me at all unless the have a cheaper family plan with unlimited data that's the only way I would change my plan on my line alone I use about 20gb to 25gb a month but together my wife and I use about 35gb any pointers on plans that would help me save will be grateful

Sorry if already posted, but here is a pretty good deal for current Sprint customers looking to upgrade, if you're OK with lease: Just $5 per month Galaxy S 5 and iPhone 6/6+.

Thats all nice and all but loyalty isnt fair game anymore, they took away that program they USED to have for customers (I think over 10 years for being a customer).

Yup, that went away when the iPhone came on board.

    • 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
