Another Hello from Chicago

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! I'm Elliot. My wife & i have been Sprint customers for 6+ years and don't want to leave Sprint (phones off contract soon) so this site has been helpful as we've been trying to determine what we will do.

 

Unlike most, I get a decent WiMax signal in my home and the area and it's generally available on my daily train rides into & out of the city. My issue has been the deterioration of 3G in my area (probably due to influx of iPhone users) and the battery life on my Evo 4G.

 

I'd consider a 4S on Sprint but the woeful 3G speed (and eminet arrival of the iPhone 5) gives me reason to pause.

 

Great site, great info, great updates!

Hello and I too live here. I'm in the Garfield Ridge area. I am holding out hope that NV fixes the awful 3G data speeds. WiMAX is holding me over. In some area I get 7-12 download but than sometimes it's as slow as 3G. I am willing to give Sprint till the new iPhone launches and if it does not support LTE I will have to jump ship.

I'm actually in the Plainfield / Romeoville / Joliet area. My 4G never gets as slow as 3G. 3G is at times barely usable which is ironic since my WiMax signal is decent and I also have Wi-Fi at home. I've done Speed test but I'm too frustrated to list the speeds here. :td: First the perk removals, then the worsening 3G speeds, then the billing changes, and now bad service due to the NV updates. I'm not sure how much more they can drop the ball recently, but since we haven't had this level of 'bad' before, we're holding out hope the call setup issues (and delayed text messages) get better soon. :confused:

My 3g isn't all that fast but it's usable and I have mostly full wimax 4G bars I'm on the west side of Chicago also

Are you experiencing delayed text messages as well? My wife and I are both getting them 12+ hours (in some cases, a full day) after they are sent. I've got an open ticket with the network team but have not heard a resolution yet.

    • Rolling out a new beta release now with some minor adjustments and additional logging. Please log out of the app (or remove your session(s) from the website if the app is not providing the log out option) and try to log in again. If you experience an issue, please submit a diagnostic report immediately after your attempt. Logs only capture a limited amount of information, and sometimes a delay causes the useful information to already be overwritten. I also sent an e-mail to the beta crew offering a faster way to receive beta updates, please let me know if you have any questions.
    • what differences? My son is thinking of going from the 21 ultra to the pixel pro... Yea, nay??
    • I just hope it doesnt make me reset my PW to log in every 5th time.. Sprints side has been wonky for a while. The 1 year I went to Tmo, I did like their online stuff 3-1 vs sprint Having a biz account might be making it troublesome, but I don't know why, everything in there is pretty straight forward. I heard it "might" be the financing issues on the sprint side.  I do know if I want to upgrade any of the lines, it still has to go through sprint, if I try on the Tmo side itll force me to pay off the few I have, vs it just bringing them over.
    • Just switched to the S22 Ultra from the Pixel 7 Pro. Love this beast!!
    • Yeah that change was a result of the null moving from one point in the code to another with the latest update, ha. I'm digging into it. Appreciate all the quick feedback from everyone! Hopefully can figure out what is going on and resolve it today.
