S9+ has the same size battery as the s8+ 3500mah.

Yeah, I was thinking about the s7 edge which is 3600.

You'll need to ask for the BYOD card probably. Only like 2 popular mid range devices uses it so it's a pretty rare card to have around. 

Just make sure they get the card with such specified info. 
I stopped by a corporate Sprint store & showed the associate your table & he sold me this card.

The BYOD SIM Kit number on the package, which is on the bar code, shows a matching number: 760492036429. It also says BYODSKVer3.0

UPC on the card says: 854798005170

Part #: SIMOLW506TQ

On the SIM card & underneath the ICCID, it says: SOI0002a.

The tech said it'll work with the S9/S9+. Is this true, you think?

Yep that's the right one!

Does the unlocked version of the S9 (S9+) have the same network perks as the Sprint version?

For the most part it seems yes.

My phone is in Philly now lol, too bad I'll be at work when it's delivered. :( Nice gift to come home to though, and rf comparisons will be done before I switch over. Hoping XPUE actually works on this one doesn't make a difference on this 8+.

Phone in hand, uninstalling all the bloat and updating apps etc so far I can notice a decent difference in performance compared to the 8+.

 

Yes MSL is still 000000, unfortunately the default priority list is B25, 26 and then 41 so I had to change that to what it's supposed to be 41, 25 and then 26... Sprint loves to mess this up every time with a new Samsung device. Other than the bloat I like it. :)

From my limited testing it's about the same on B25 at my house, rarely get B26 or B41 at home lol so I wasnt able to test those. But my S8+ was sitting at 91dBm and my S9+ was sitting at 91dBm after I activated it.

That's not an error. Remember what this list is for. It is for the initial LTE scan. The best band for the phone to scan for is B25. It is the most likely LTE band to be available across the country. B41 or B26 is not guaranteed everywhere. Once you are connected to LTE, the network will dictate what LTE band you are on based on signal strength and availability. If B41 is available, you will be pushed to that relatively quickly.

That may be but I overrode that lol.

      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.
