I went in yesterday to try and turn it in. They said they wouldn't take it and I will have to mail it in the envelope they sent me. Kinda nervous sending it back in that flimsy little thing to be honest....

Have you guys made sure you're bringing it to a Corp location? Third party can't touch it because it's not their order.

Also. This is ridiculous. I think I lost something like 4% while sleeping last night. Purposefully didn't plug it in last night but I didn't expect to still be going with decent battery left in the middle of the afternoon. Haven't even turned on low battery mode yet either.

Also supposed to meet someone later to sell my 6. $500 with a year left on AppleCare and a bunch of cases plus the box. Seems fair to me. Fingers crossed all goes as planned.

I'm a die hard android fan with a galaxy s5 on sprint. I have to say that the 6s plus (rose gold) I got for my wife has super battery life (unlike my s5 which is warm to the touch, need 2 batteries), since Samsung ditched the microsd I might go with iphone 7 next year when my upgrade comes around.

Where I ended before I plugged in. I'll take it!

 

More than 8.5 hours of unscreen time and almost 33.5 hours of standby... OMG that's freakin' insane  :o  :blink:

Yes, returned two yesterday to a corporate store. Just make sure you get a receipt.

Thats great news. Is there a way to be sure if a sprint store is a corporate store ? Are sprint shack considered corporate

Gonto sprint.com store locator

There are lots of stores that only sell sprint products but aren't actually sprint stores.

Absolutely. I'm super impressed with the battery life.

Not going to always be correct. It doesn't differentiate like it used to. My store used to say sprint by universal wireless. Marcelo wants us all to be one united front and just have everyone be sprint so it no longer shows who is corporate and who isn't.

Spent another day with Sprint iPhone 6 users. Every single time they were on 3G, I wasn't. ????

Not always. It's more of a reflection on network tuning and strength -- not speed.

Is it a reflection of the carrier bundles or different providers?

My iPhone 6s Plus is out for delivery.  I can swing by at home during my lunch, but I sure hope they leave it at my door without a signature.  Maybe they will buzz one of my neighbors and have them sign for it.  I have witnessed that before.  :fingers:

Yeah..  I don't think CA is active in the Madison area though.  One of these days...  So you had a regular 6 and went to the 6s + too right?  Any noticeable differences in RF?

I didn't think it would be active in Racine and Oak Creek areas but I've been proven wrong.

Yep. Love the size jump and all that comes with it. RF for me does seem to be better. I have faster speeds and am on LTE more often. Even driving between Milwaukee and Racine county on the interstate where my phone would drop to 3G doesn't give me issues anymore. I don't think you'll be disappointed at all.

 

 

Edit. Speaking of which. Phone sale went good. $500 in my pocket and my ad wasn't even up for 24 hours. Makes me wish I asked for more but oh well. Made back my money on my down payment and have enough for a nice steak dinner. Anyone else have luck selling their old device?

Yeah, reddit has mixed stories also with some saying they took their phones, others saying they would not.  Not really happy with this situation.  I am not that comfortable mailing back my old phone with that big charge sitting on my acct.  I got my bill today and it was on there showing due on Oct 14.  I really don't want to pay it and then just get a bill credit back.  I am not happy with this situation and wish it would have been explained better when I ordered. I am actually considering just doing a return and unwinding it to get the charges removed and then doing a new transaction and just doing the giveback in store then on the spot.  I wonder if that can be done.

At one point I said 'the earliest it could be held would be Sunday night' and that I would post the date and time when I am able to allocate the time.

Just called them and they said I can't bring it to the store blah blah blah. Im going to take it to USPS and pay for tracking. I am not sending 2100 dollars in phones back without tracking in case they get lost.

    • Just did some quick adding and 70% of the US population is in the largest 114 US MSAs. If Dish covered every MSA above 475k population (so, everything from Lafayette, LA on up), and service stopped completely outside MSA borders, they'd hit their 70%. That's while covering none of places as large as Reno, NV. Oh, and if you cover the San Juan, PR MSA, you can just hit the top 110 other MSAs, down to Pensacola, FL (so, everything with >= 500k population). Now, I fully expect Dish to omit some MSAs in the top 114 in favor of others that are closer to their footprint, or have more Boost Mobile user concentration, but this isn't a ridiculously huge lift...and is why Dish is saying they'll be building out only 15k cell sites by 2023...and they'll have help from T-Mobile as TMo casts off a bunch of redundant sites, many of which would love to immediately get a new tenant.
    • Thing is, building a coverage focused network to cover 70% of the US population using 600 isn't *that* expensive. It's the capacity play that's expensive. You need capacity if you have a ton of customers, which 10MM isn't. Alltel had 12 million customers when Verizon bought them, and covered a larger area than Dish will need to. If you spend $5 billion building a network for, say, 15 million customers, and don't have to subsidize those customers, that's not a huge outlay in the scheme of things.
    • My LG G8 doesn't have never as an option. 10 minutes is the max amount.
    • T-Mobile if very dense in my area too.   Sprint in my area always needed a densification.     So no... it's not Unique.
