So happy they kept him. Him and Gunther were my favorite sprint execs

Yeah. I'm glad they kept him as well. Gunther was also a great public personality for Sprint.

Dr. Saw has specific expertise of Sprint's 2.5 GHz (and its overall network) that's really important for network integration.

It looks like TMobile TAC's rolled out here in the PNW or at least TMobile changed them. A local tower used to broadcast 23314, this morning it switched to 11334. This happens to be the TAC that TMobile was using for their B4 service for Sprint customers (which would show up as Clearwire B4 or Sprint B4 in SignalCheck).

Time to change the name to T5GRU and re-direct all S4GRU traffic to the site? 😄

Only if they haul him off to prison.   Then I'll enjoy "seeing" him.

So CPUC is mad because T-Mo and Sprint didn't wait for the official vote before closing the merger. CPUC already said they were gonna vote yes so I don't know why they're being whiners.

So nearly a month wasn't enough time for them to do what they said they would do? Screw 'em!

I hate seeing people take this kind of stance against the merger, especially writing articles about it. Like at least give it 6 months to a year then judge it. 1ce2b47f0cf8662abbaa6f0b4d8a37b8.jpg

I have a feeling this kind of stuff is deliberate in order to generate traffic from hate clicks. It's for when normal authorship just doesn't cut it.

I guess this is how we're going to get Network updates from this point forward? I have a feeling T-Mobile won't break-out Sprint Network information separately, except for transition-related information.

One thing I noticed... He didn't "@" Sprint. He did "#" instead. Perhaps the new brand guidelines are already a thing?

See this video from his Tweet as well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gblKI87IcaM&t=

EDITED: I just noticed in a later tweet that did "@" Sprint.... False alarm.

Hurray!!!! I roamed on Band 4 today. The merger is real for me finally 😁. But then it went into Sprint 3G in the spot in the house that I had reliable if slower band 25. Maybe they are still configuring this area.

I have bounced around pretty heavily these past few days. This morning it was B4, B25, B26, and B41 all in the matter of 2 minutes while a couple days ago I even hopped on B12 and B2.

I just did a speediest while on 4: .10Mbps. Yikes...and I was complaining about 5Mbps on band 25.

I'm not convinced much has actually changed yet.  It seems to me like they've opened up roaming a touch more, but otherwise Sprint customers are still on the Sprint network as much as possible.  I have yet to connect to T-Mobile anything since the day of the merger.

    • Thanks for all the help! I called, left a voice message and sent them an email. Unfortunately it looks like they were pretty quick shipping since I already have a tracking number and an ETA of Monday. Hopefully you’re right and it hasn’t actually shipped yet. I am in Oklahoma, so that’s part of why the shipping is so quick to get here. I guess that could mean returns are faster too. So at least there’s that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
    • That stinks. My area LTE is still 10x10 I wonder if it's because I'm in a Columbia capital area? Mpls Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
    • Yes I did restart app. Also rebooted Moto and turned off other signal apps. No accent. Restarting app also was needed on LG V20 if you want to turn accent off (turn off setting then restart app needed). Thanks
    • Hey thanks!! 🍻 I already saw your report and have been looking into it, I'm trying to get another release pushed out this morning to give you guys another try at everything for me.. the Red Pocket SIM caught my eye as the only oddity, although SCP identifies it as T-Mobile so it should show a magenta line. Did you try restarting the app after enabling the option, just in case? (You shouldn't have to do this but who knows). I'm adding some extra logging that should show me some more details why this might be missing. Stay tuned.
    • Accent seems to work fine on my Sprint LG V20 using Android 8. I have not tested it yet switch to T-Mobile or AT&T or Verizon etc.  No accent on my Moto G7 Power Unlocked and rooted with Android 9 on T-Mobile network using Red Pocket sim. I assume accent is triggered by PLMN, but maybe by sim carrier? Diags and beer money sent for both so you can compare if needed.
