Recommended Posts

CONTEST CLOSED!!!

LIMITED TIME PROMOTION!!!  YOU COULD POSSIBLY WIN A NEW UNLOCKED GOOGLE PIXEL IF YOU DONATE TO SUPPORT S4GRU
 
The Goal
 
The goal is to have some fun and raise some money to support S4GRU.  If we can raise enough money to cover the device by 8 PM Pacific Time on Sunday, November 6th, then we will schedule the raffle.  The contest winner can select the color.
 
This device is not limited to only Sprint.  It comes fully unlocked, so the winner can use this device on most networks in the U.S. and many outside the U.S. too.
 
The Plan
 
If we are able to raise at least as much as the device costs us plus incidental charges like taxes and shipping, we will add any additional proceeds to the S4GRU general fund.  If we can't raise enough, we will provide opportunity to refund.
 
And which model it ends up being depends on how much money we can raise.  If we raise just $750, it will be the 32GB Pixel with 5" screen.  For each additional $250 we collect beyond $750, we will give another $100 in upgrades toward upgrading to the XL or more memory.

 
The Raffle
 
Each donation to the 
PIXEL PROMO will receive a range of numbers, equating to one number for every dollar you donate.  The minimum donation to the cause is $10.  If you donate $10, you get a range of 10 numbers.  If you donate $100, you get a range of 100 numbers.  The more you donate, the greater your chances of winning.  There is no limit to the amount you can donate...in amount or frequency.  But it needs to be at least $10 per donation to the PIXEL PROMO.
 
You will receive a Private Message (or email if you are not a S4GRU member) from S4GRU giving you your numbers after your donation.  Most likely within 8-12 hours, but could take a day or two.
 
We will stop accepting donations at 8PM Pacific on Sunday, November 6th.  Any donations received after that time will not be counted toward this promotion.  I will announce when we will hold the drawing...we will do it in a live chat setting.  Date and time to be announced.  We will select a number at random using my random number generator app in my Nexus 6.  You do not need to be present in the live chat to win.

 

All money donated to the raffle will be credited to your S4GRU accumulation total and will count toward future upgrades.  If you are not currently a S4GRU Sponsor, you will be given Sponsor status for six months with the minimum $10 raffle donation.

 
To Enter
 
Go to the S4GRU PayPal Donation section by clicking on this hyperlink or by going to the S4GRU Main Forums Page and clicking the donate button in the upper right hand corner.  Enter an amount you want to donate for this promotion, minimum $10.  In the notes section, tell us your screen name and type PIXEL PROMO.  If you forget to do that in the PayPal donation, then send me a Message.  You will get a message response giving you your raffle numbers by 11 PM Pacific on 11/6/2016.  If you don't get them, message me.

 
Rules
 
S4GRU Membership is not required to enter.  S4GRU Staff Members and their families are ineligible to win.  Dollars spent on the promotion will count toward future member upgrades.  There is no cash value of the prize.  S4GRU will pay the shipping costs to the winner.  The device is unlocked and Google says it is compatible with AT&T, Sprint, Verizon and T-Mobile.  It likely can be used on many more networks, but S4GRU cannot guarantee operability on any network.  A SIM card purchase for the winner's preferred network may be required and is not paid by S4GRU.  This contest is void where prohibited.  Pre-scheduled automatic recurring payments to S4GRU during the contest period will not be eligible for entry in the contest.  The contest may be subject to amendment or cancellation as necessary.

If we were to win and wanted the XL, are we able to pay the difference to upgrade if the fundraiser only raises $750?

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Yes, absolutely!

Yay! How come you used fake images?  :)

 

Did I?  Ooops.  I'm gonna blame the fact that I didn't have power and in a dark room as an excuse.  Yeah, that's it!   :lol:

EDIT - At least I have power now.

We are still a little over $250 away from the minimum it will take to fund the raffle.  If you have been waiting until the end, now is the time.  Just a few days left!!!

 

Please help support S4GRU and get a chance to win a new Google Pixel.  Thanks!   :fingers:

    • That's actually important information. If the Velvet can't get NR CA with a Sprint SIM, but can with a TMo one, that does indicate that the S21 may have something similar going on. At which point I don't think it's a matter of TMo wanting one way or the other. Rather, Sprint's core can't do NR CA because n41 was going to be the only band.
    • I agree. What differentiates the Everything Data plan from kickstart except hotspot and unthrottled data?    As for 5g I can get NSA 5g on a sprint sim (tna) but cannot get SA 5g unless I TNX and get throttled to 2.3 on video... Crazy.
    • I would say given the Everything Data plan wording and the premium price paid for Everything Data, you should have unthrottled.  If true, for me personally, this makes the purchase of any 5G phone from T-Mobile undesirable given that TNX is required to get 5G at all.  Where I live inside the Columbus Ohio beltway, the speed ranking is Sprint, then AT&T, then T-Mobile, then Verizon.  T-Mobile has improved, but not enough to change their ranking.  T-Mobile would likely win if they converted one of the two Sprint only sites near me to T-Mobile (no permits seen). The throttling should be validated against the physical network.  What happens if only band b25 is allowed so it is only on Sprint even with the TNX network?
    • Just drove by there today and SE03XC157 is back online. I guess the aforementioned wind storm temporarily knocked it offline.
    • Fast appears to be 20% slower than other speed tests... I have a 250 up and down fiber connect at home.. regularly at 270.   Just did a fast test twice... barely hit 200
