Note 9 rumor thread.

Recommended Posts

Nope. Sprint model is in the same boat. Closing in on 3 months without a update.

I just go with unlocked phones. Usually the time between software updates is better.

I would assume with unlocked phones it is better. But I'm curious. Is the update cycle better with T Mobile, or for that matter Verizon, At&t?

Verizon has had the best support. ATT and T-Mobile tied. For example Verizon, T-Mobile and ATT all pushed out the night mode update for the Note 9. V and ATT even pushed them for the S9 and S10. Sprint has only pushed for the S10 and the Note 9 and S9 still don’t have VoLTE.

To be fair, this latest update added night mode for the Note 9.

Sure did! Going to have to test this thing tomorrow while I'm working at the airport.

Speaking of airports, does anyone know the steps one has to take to use the Note 9 overseas, specifically in Spain. I thought it was something simple but I'm not too sure. The Sprint website is not consistent with the answers.

I asked the international folks and this is what I had to do when I went on my cruise this summer.

For Samsung:

Make sure that you are connected to a working Wi-Fi connection.

          1. Go to Settings > System Update.
          2. Tap Update profile.
          3. Once it's done, tap Update PRL.

After the updates disconnect from Wi-Fi, we need to do the following steps:

          1. Go to Settings > Connections > Mobile Network > Data Roaming.
          2. Network mode & roaming network should be set to Automatic.
          3. Turn off everything under domestic roaming.
          4. Turn on everything under international roaming.

Just incase you didn't receive the welcome message. Here is the link and all you need to do is to manually put this on your browser.

http://intlroam.sprint.com

    1. Kindly Turn off your Wi-Fi
    2. Open your Cellular Data
    3. Put the link on your browser or click the link inside the welcome message
    4. Follow the steps if you want to purchase the $5/day or $25/week

      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.

      A new Samsung tablet certified for Sprint (and others) went through the FCC a few days ago..
       
      Category 6 UE
      LTE Bands 2-4-5-12-25-26-41
      Carrier Aggregation capable for Downlink operations. 2xCA B41

      Looks to be one of the bigger flagship tablets (~10" ?) and will be the 11th 2xB41 CA capable device to come to Sprint.

      Try to make this as short and simple as possible. I have three devices; 2 of which are on the same plan and the third on a separate plan.
       
      The third device is my tab 4 which is picking up SprintB41 site 310120 just great. I get 3 bars downstairs.
       
      My other two devices; Galaxy Note 4 & Galaxy Note Edge for some reason will not pick up this tower. I have tried PRL updates, Profile updates, restarted the phones and all I can get them to connect to is a ClearwireB41 site.
       
      More background info...all devices have same Sim card as when purchased, tablet stays off 3/4 of the day and my phones are on when I wake up and turn them off at night. No matter where I go inside or out my phones won't connect to the Sprint site.
       
      Anybody have any ideas before I call Sprint trying to figure something out? I'm not sure how long the tablet has been able to connect to this site so I'm not sure what to think of it besides agitated that the tablet of all things is connecting. I posted two photos; one of the tablet connected to the Sprint site; second of the Clear wire site my phones connect to.
       
      Thanks in advance.

    • Yes the site at the Mountlake exit off 520 broadcasts 5 L2500 carriers. Many sites in the area do nowadays. The B12 is T-Mobile/AT&T roaming. If it's displaying as Sprint, it's T-Mobile roaming and it's unlimited and unthrottled. 
    • Saw a 5 carrier B41 on the 520 by UW. Also, have noticed B12 showing up on my phone as Sprint. Sent from my LG-LS998 using Tapatalk
    • This is a follow-up to my posts of Sept 7 and Sept 20. Well, things haven't worked too well with the Sprint MiFi8000.  After a promising start, things degraded quickly and I started to experience the spontaneous reboot problem that Sprint MiFi 8000 and Verizon MiFi 8800L users have reported.  Originally I thought that it was related to the signal level -- but in the end I decided it was some thermal issue.  The units do get warm...  So I sent my 4 MiFi 8000 units back to Sprint. And I was never happy with the Peplink/Pepwave Max On-The-Go (OTG) unit.  I had several problems with it and the support folks weren't very supportive.       So I bought a second HTC 5G hub (now I have two).  Attached is a photo of the two units.  I got my old Cradlepoint COR-IBR1700 out of the closet and am presently using its load balancing capability.  The 1700 has 5 ethernet ports; 4 of which can be assigned as WAN or LAN and the 5th is set to WAN.  So I set those as 1 LAN and 4 WAN ports -- the LAN port ties into my house ethernet, and two of those WAN ports go to the ethernet ports on the back of each HTC 5G hub.  But the 1700 seems to be in Round-Robin mode even though I have it set to Device Usage mode (balanced usage) -- well, it clearly isn't doing that.  The one on the right is 75.51 GB while the one on the left is 116 MB. At this point I've been very happy with this setup and the internet has worked continually for the past 3 weeks since I brought this system up.  No spontaneous reboots (e.g. MiFi 8000), no blank web-interface screens (e.g. Peplink MAX OTG), and no internet dropouts.  Scott
