Would you guys (and gals) following the Pixel be interested in a raffle, like we did with the iPhone?  We were able to raise about a month's expenses on that raffle.  If we could get at least that muc

Oh wait a sec.    3x B41 CA confirmed.   

The rumors of our demise are greatly exaggerated.  With our new reduced rates from IP Board, we should be able to keep the site funded. So as long as S4GRU members are still using the site and staff

Has anyone been able to activate yet? The website is not accepting my MEID. A clueless chat assistant is telling me I cannot activate it on Sprint.

Website accepted the MEID from my email and recognized it as the correct device, color, and capacity, but I haven't done the activation because it's at home and I'm at work. :|

I am also being told that the SIM Card I have (it is the same model for the Nexus 6P) can't be used.

Well that's the right one...

Looks like they updated their spec sheet to reflect Cat 12 LTE.

 
Supports up to CAT 12 (600Mbps DL / 75Mbps UL) depending on carrier support

 

Basically meaning 4x4 MIMO and 256-QAM are supported to achieve the advertised 600Mbps speeds.

 

One or the other, maybe both, but not necessarily both 4x4 MIMO and 256-QAM.

 

3x CA: 20 MHz FDD @ 2x2 MIMO @ 256-QAM = 600 Mbps

 

3x CA: (2x CA 20 MHz FDD @ 2x2 MIMO @ 64-QAM) + (20 MHz FDD @ 4x4 MIMO @ 64-QAM) = 600 Mbps

Just got back from the Sprint store after trying the chat. I finally got a competent rep. He told me that Sprint apparently screwed up putting in the ID numbers on some Pixels and they are showing up as pre-paid instead of post-paid .Thus, I can't get it onto my post paid account without opening up a ticket and having it fixed. He said it could take a few days. I suspect I won't be the only one with the problem. Oh well, I'll just use it on wi-fi until then.

Or Google Fi it for a month if you don't mind spending the extra money to play with it...

It seems Sprint is not ready for this launch. I'm not surprised.

They don't have to be ready. Technically the only carrier that supports it is Verizon. You're on your own on other networks.

I don't agree. Sprint has publicly advertised that the phone works on the network and is supported.

Sprint has "publicly advertised" Pixel support?  Where?

 

Also, the earliest delivery dates were fully a week from now, October 26-28.  The Google Store jumped the gun by a week.  Sprint had every reason to expect that these niche handsets would not start being activated until next week.  You cannot complain until then.

 

But maybe I should be like many iPhone 7 buyers and complain now about delays because my Pixel XL will not be delivered until next week -- even though I put in my order in the first few minutes, probably before any of you.

Nothing is early. The phone was launched today.

 

 

'Yes, we're aware Pixel is not listed on the BYO website. The site will be updated in time for launch on the 20th."

 

I purchased after reading this information from Sprint.

 

But anyway, I'll move on. I'm not forgetting who I am talking to ☺️ these are not the forums to do any whining about Sprint.

I find it funny they're on the BYOD page as "Google Pixel Sail" and "Google Pixel XL Marlin" haha. How does that not get caught by some form of QA?

      I was taking a look at the HTC 5G Hub that's supposed to be launching on Sprint sometime this month. It looks like it could technically be Sprint's first foray into the WISP space. On HTC's site they mention it as a sort of replacement for your WiFi router with the ability to connect up to 20 devices to it. I wonder what data caps will be on this when it launches and what they plan on charging people for using it?
      It seems to be a lot of things smashed into one device. It's combining a wireless router, a streaming box, and a cloud gaming device all into one. It also has support for pretty much every U.S. LTE band.

      What are everyone's thought on the HTC U 12+?
    • By leozno1
      Figured the HTC U11 needs to have it's own thread as opposed to having that conversation in the HTC U Ultra thread.
       
      Pretty interesting article that has me excited about this phone. As the U11 seems to be leading Sprint's march towards Gigabit LTE.

      Only specs I've really seen leaked are 5.7" screen and based on the unannounced "Mate 8" model.
       
      From http://www.breathecast.com/articles/nexus-2015-rumors-news-leaked-video-reveals-specs-of-purported-2015-huawei-nexus-video-30407/
       
       
       
       
       
       
       

      The Mate 7 had a 4100+mah battery, speculation is that this could have the same or bigger.
       
      Anything passed through the FCC for a US and/or Sprint version that covers the Spark bands?  I'm in the market for a new phone this fall and will be going off contract, buying a Nexus.
