Nextel is still alive in OC!

I was driving yesterday along Tustin Road x First Street and noticed a 2nd set of antennas (Verizon put up a temporary container with antenna tower) that looked temporary. To my surprise I found a Nextel Cow still running as you can see on the pictures below. Now I am sure this is not an iDen cow but more like a zombie CDMA/LTE B25 site.

It's right there on our iDEN site map in the Premier Sponsor section:  http://s4gru.com/index.php?/topic/2126-nextel-iden-historical-site-maps/

 

There should also be an adjacent Sprint site there too (OG25XC138).  It may also be a COW.  Or Sprint relocated to the Nextel site and the Sprint site was decommissioned.

Idk but B41/B25 along First Street in Tustin is very weak. There is a Clear tower in a church bell tower about 1/2 mile south of this location. Drove by today and it could coinside with the renovation of the office building. Still I find it funny that they kept the old Nextel paint job ob the trailer and never went Sprint all the way.

    • Strange business model that they keep around all these pricing plans. 1000s of plans per carrier is reportedly not uncommon.  Training customer support must be a nightmare. Even MVNOs have legacy plans. A downside of their contract mentality I guess. Best to change contracts during a recession. But then all carriers try to squeeze out legacy plan benefits as they grow old.  
    • Everything "Uncarrier" is becoming "Carrier" again. Because of the Credit Limit that T-Mobile put on our account for no reason at all (and wouldn't change/update the last time I checked all the way up to the CEO), I don't plan on buying/upgrading our iPhones through T-Mobile. I'm going through Apple directly. Looks like I'll be going through Google and Samsung directly for our other lines for upgrades. Also, we're staying on Sprint Max given the ridiculous pricing for Go5G Plus. On Sprint Max, we currently pay for our Plan: $260 for 7 Voice Lines $25 for two Wearable Lines. (One is $10/Month. The other is $15/Month because the AutoPay discount only applies up to 8 lines.) Total: $285/Month vs. Go5G Plus (Per the Broadband Facts "nutrition label" on the T-Mobile Website): https://www.t-mobile.com/commerce/cell-phone-plans $360 - ($5 AutoPay Discount x 7 Voice Lines) = $325 The Watch Plans show as either $12/Month or $15/Month: https://www.t-mobile.com/cell-phone-plans/affordable-data-plans/smartwatches So this is about the same for the wearables as what we're paying now. Overall, it's quite more than we're paying now to switch plans. Ridiculous....
    • Welcome back! That's similar to my best (1250ish). A few people have broken 2000 on good sites. 
    • Lots of new multi-carrier nodes popping up in Bushwick. Crown Castle Fiber node at Ridgewood & Palmetto:   Crown Castle Solutions node at Irving & Jefferson:   Crown Castle Solutions node at Wilson & Noll:  
    • I’m surprised they’re running a 5x5 Band 66 carrier still. In NYC T-Mobile has 25x25 AWS and they’re running 20x20 Band 66 and 5x5 n66 (in testing). Presumably when n66 commercially launches they’ll drop Band 66 down to 15x15 and go straight for a 10x10 n66 carrier like they did with n25.
