Interesting acquisition announced today....Blackberry to acquire Good Technologies. For those of you who don't know or are familiar with Good, it's basically a BYOD platform for enterprises. (Email, intranet, etc.) Not necessarily directly Sprint related, but many people use both.
I've seen some threads recently about the differences between SIM/UICCs and though posting a compatibility matrix would help people.
This is pretty straightforward. The matrix has every Sprint LTE device, and what UICC card is meant for that device. Mix and matching UICC card types probably will not work, but swapping around UICC cards for devices that use the same type of card should work properly.
Keep in mind, you cannot simply move your UICC card to another phone to use it. Sprint's device authentication system still requires the correct UICC and MEID to be on the account to authenticate properly and work.
There is still at least one up near Peoria (https://goo.gl/maps/okjmqNo83tFa9GNg8) that still has some equipment up. Pretty wild. I looked up info on the setups a few years back... there is a lot of reading folks can do online to read about the history.
Wow that long lines site still has all the original equipment still installed and in good condition. Almost every long lines site in Oregon has at least had the horns removed if not all the equipment removed.
The FCC certifications are designed to deal with RF exposure/output and determine if the device is safe to use. While a lower EIRP from the phone could indicate reduced RF performance, that's not necessarily the case.
I need to figure out if other phones have a feature like LG's "Knock On" and contemplate those as I look at new devices.
