You'd think having a thousand different models wouldn't create a software update nightmare for them. :D But honestly, I bet they spend very little time on updates for their low-end models. I wonder how many never even get a single update..

Anyone else having issues with calling plus not working? I have it enabled but don't see the calling plus icon in the status bar. I've turned it on and off several times but it still doesn't work.

Hello Everyone This is now my Favorite Forum I have learned more on this forum then any other. I would like to see if anyone would be able to help me with my new Sprint Galaxy S9+. It is Factory unlocked on the sprint network. I am in the Dallas Tx area and ever since upgrading to the S9 I get horrible network speeds. My download is never good and my upload is almost nonexistent. I have been to 3 sprint corp. stores as well as many hours on the line with sprint CS nothing has worked. The Tech at the corp repair store told me it was my APN and to contact Samsung. (because he was using APN2 EHRPD and I was using APN LTE).  But from this forum I have learned how to switch that and it didn't help at all. Any suggestions or feedback would be great thanks again. See attachments for more info

I find it hard to bench under 20Mbps on the DL, that's on 10x10 B25. Usually average 60Mbps on B41 at least.

I am not at all a tech like everyone on this forum I just learn what I can from everyone at least what I can understand. I wonder if I try blocking whatever band is giving me these speeds maybe that would help. Today I went to Sprint Corp store and talked them into giving me a new SIM card it helped a little on download (not much) but not at all on my upload. How can I tell what band I am on maybe I can try forcing it to use a different band. I am just grasping at straws now because it is functional but not $800 functional

Use this code on the dial pad *#0011# and take a screenshot. We need to see what band your phone is using.

Oh wow a rare 10+5mhz CA combo. Your speeds should not be that slow. Do a speed test for me really quick

While you were at the Sprint store you should have compared the Sprint S9 to see if speeds are different. See if this works. Dial ##data# go to view, LTE and go down to B25 TM9 and see if it's enabled or not.

They do that when the network in the area is not good. TMobile does the same thing.

      Its almost time for the next iteration of Samsung's Galaxy Phones! I'm planning on pre-ordering either the S20+ or Ultra. Current Rumors have it going on Pre-order February 11.  Let the discussion commence...

      Samsung Network Vision equipment are highly distinct and fairly easy to spot compared to the equipment that other vendors are deploying. Sprint is Samsung's first extremely massive American contract (baring Clearwire) so there  should be no issues in confusing these equipment for another carrier which happens often with Ericsson NV equipment.

      Below are images of Samsung equipment which includes antennas, remote radio units, base stations, and their mounting configurations.

      Sprint 4G Rollout Updates
      Tuesday, January 31, 2012 - 7:46 PM MST
       
      Since last fall, there had been talk of a Samsung Galaxy Nexus launching on American carriers other than Big Red. Sprint has finally announced several weeks ago that it is the another vendor slated for release in the U.S. Suffice to say, many of us out there, especially those adverse to heading to Verizon and paying its premium prices, are excited about the impending release.
      The good news is that Google could be working on an updated version of the Galaxy Nexus. It has unofficially been dubbed the Galaxy Nexus Plus. There is much anticipation that it will be released before Sprint turns on LTE this summer. It’s not the first time an OEM has refreshed a device and re-released it to the market place, which works to our advantage. It’s rumored that the new Galaxy Nexus will have either a 1.5 or 1.8 GHz Texas Instrument OMAP4670 dual core processor. This would be a significant upgrade from the 1.2 GHz dual core processor found in the current Verizon version.
      We don’t know anything about official specs, but it’s also rumored to have an 8 MP camera. This is a noteworthy upgrade to the 5 MP shooter on the Verizon model (which has been lauded by many techies). We already know that the Sprint model will come installed with Google Wallet, per previous announcements. Some rumors also point to a beefier battery as well. The phone should have all the other features that’s on the current Galaxy Nexus, so now all we have to do is wait.
