Who is going to miss Sprint?

Recommended Posts

Even though Sprint doesn't have the best coverage in my area. I do have lots of memories and nostalgia with the company. I wonder who else here will miss Sprint besides me?

it will depend on the merger results from a customer perspective.

That's true very true. Everyone's opinion will obviously be different. But I'll take your word for it as well.

I am going to miss the 1999-2004 Sprint before the Nextel merger. Not afterwards.

I'll miss it a lot. Sprint was my first IT job out of college.

I'm definitely going to miss Sprint.  It's like a homely introverted ex-girlfriend.  She's a cheap date and just likes to stay home (on WiFi).  You know there was so much potential, if she could just be what you wanted her to be.  Get moving, get out of the house, get a makeover.  You weren't in love with her, and made so many excuses for her to all your friends.  You've been meaning to break up with her, but you didn't want to end up with one of those 3 other narcissistic chicks out there, who really didn't look much better with their makeup off.  Eventually she just finds someone else (T-Mobile).  :devilangel:

I will miss Sprint like I miss high school, but I never want to go back.

I'll miss Sprint. I've had them since 1999. Maybe I was simply lucky, but I just didn't have the problems with them that other people reported throughout the years so I never had a reason to switch.

I will miss Sprint. Had them since 2011. There have been times I've wanted to leave, but for the price, the growing pains were worth it.

One thing I will miss about Sprint is them waiting until midnight to bring up new sites etc.  T-Mobile completely brought down its sites several times in Columbus last night for B71, between 6:30 and 7pm (prime time).  Not impressed.  Sprint typically would wait until midnight, a far less busy time.  Personally think they should give warnings like "We plan on bringing up more low band capacity tomorrow evening.  Service interruptions are possible."

How long was it down for?   All day?     Sprint is weak in my area.   Not enough towers.     I certainly wouldn't mind the interruption if it meant better service for me.     Sprint for years did very little in my area.   T-mobile is making waves of improvements.   Really great to hear and see.    I'm one of those who will not miss Sprint.    over 20 years of it.    Welcome to T-Mobile.

Don't think that's the theme of this thread. 🙄

      I'm new to this forum, and I've seen people mention cell sites with specific ID's (for example, SF33XC664). Is there any significance to these ID's, and is there a way to decode them? Also, how do I figure out what the cell site ID's are for towers near me?
      Thanks! I'm excited to start talking on this site more 😀

      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 announced the MVNO Google Fi will use its network for 5G in a press release (that is, once there are actually 5G capable phones compatible with Google Fi someday):
      https://newsroom.sprint.com/sprint-to-provide-5g-wireless-services-for-google-fi.htm
       
      This is the first I've heard about Fi and 5G so far. Google has pretty much kept mum on the topic, so I'm somewhat encouraged.
