    I think the entire review process is now a bunch of cr*p. "Bonkers" as she put it?! How dumb! Not sure who is telling the truth or if anyone in DC even knows what that is anymore? This whole process has been a circus! Was / is there a "process" to review and approve? If so, why wasn't it followed? Why is it being revisited 5 times?! No company has ever had to go through this... in this manner. If you keep re-reviewing something, then no doubt, you WILL find something. You've (certain FCC commissioners and certain DOJ officials) have been looking for something over and over to pick on with this merger and won't stop until it is found. The official vote/doctrine should have been voted on way before and signed off and this whole thing should have been put to bed by now. They have had 1 1/2 years to review this! Now she says they didn't see the documents and or are having a different order circulated through?? What the heck was going on there for 1 1/2 years?

    Mississippi has backed out of the NY-led antitrust suit and has signed on to back the DOJ deal. Looks like they got T-Mobile to agree to certain coverage requirements. I wonder if Texas is next? Republicans control the state because of the rural Texas vote. Striking a similar deal for more rural coverage seems like a no brainier in order to solidify their rural voting base.

    Coming from a X, I’m using the Max Pro and it’s great! The battery literally lasts me all day (7:45am - 10/11pm). It appears that my data connection is better when it comes to speed, upload and even at my desk where my phone(iPhone X) would fall to 1x or 3G, it now holds onto b25/b26.

    Softbank did invest in Sprint. Softbank is an asset holder, putting money into a company is an investment. They just don't hand out free money, and it would take at least two years worth of capex to get Sprint somewhere substantial where that money spent would actually make them money long term. Even things like Softbanks $100B IT fund, they are just exchanging money for ownership where it is buying a large portion of a public company like ARM to get majority ownership, or a small startup that needs money and is willing to sell a portion of the company to get the money they need. There is nothing left to buy from Sprint unless they want to take Sprint private. Sprint's contingency plan is to operate as normal, like they are now. They can keep going. We'd see a Chapter 11 or Softbank taking Sprint private before a complete full on asset sale. Sprint's disaster apex would be when they can no longer raise money and take on debt. When there is a full on loss in confidence. Things can't be all too bad. Sprint's numbers still aren't in the black, but they would easily have been if they didn't spend the few billion extra on capex. But you gotta spend money to make money and it is great that Sprint's capex isn't complete garbage anymore. Marcelo really might have had to trim capex way back just to keep the books not as deep in the red and sustain Sprint, but it cost Sprint a lot of time. I think would would help Sprint greatly is removing CDMA requirements for devices to be on their network. Having a CDMA requirement is ignoring tens of millions of potential line additions and flat out throwing away tens of milions of others. MVNOs have switched over from Sprint to TMobile. New MVNOs are more likely to be a TMobile MVNO. People can't just take whatever phone and say "make it work". If CMDA exists on the device, even if it lacks BC10 should just be more a bonus for Sprint. Sprint used to be the MVNO king, but TMobile has really been able to pick up Sprint's slack.

    So yeah... do you have any web link or article to show this? I've looked. I didn't find anything. Rather than plainly disagreeing and calling something out... It's polite to link an article or some other form of proof. Otherwise, it's hearsay.

    It has no doubt been beyond crazy. At this point, just throw the entire merger away. Get rid of the people at the top of the pole at Sprint, bring in folk willing to take chances and a CEO with a vibrant, risk taker yet has a track record for revival. Sprint has some life left (ex:current 5G status vs their competitors) it just needs the right team to further enhance it and bring it to the front. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The s9 is good at receiving Band 41, but not transmitting to the cell site. My question is --- why don't they fix this? Kick the s9 off band 41 when it struggles to upload to band 41 and can't do it. Or better yet, get band 25 upload going with band 41 download. Do something. Just fix it and yesterday.

    The September update for the unlocked version is available today if you manually check for it. I have it installed. No option to turn on VOLTE. No new carrier aggregation options. This is getting old. Reporting this same news month after month. I have had about 8 or 9 monthly updates to this UNLOCKED S9 since it was new and I am not seeing any improvements to it. Why would a S9 be getting ignored? My CDMA 1x service works fine and I really am not suffering because I lack VOLTE. But it just is the bungling and fumbling on getting VOLTE active and it is for no apparent reason. Then they allow band 41 to take over about everything and keep me on it almost everywhere when upload does not work well on band 41. This upload issue was known before they even launched B-41. Being connected to B-41 on LTE+ at levels of -110 to -130 is a disaster. And it just continues and continues. No upload at all and the phone stays on the unusable B-41.

    Sprint needs to spend more on backhaul and less on kombucha: https://www.kansascity.com/news/business/article235439977.html (See the Video) Yes the employees need morale boosters right now to prevent a talent drain. For what it’s worth from me, the best morale booster is a better product, not kombucha.

    If there is an EBS license in Grand Forks, say by UND for instance, Sprint could possibly lease it. That could make a pathway for B41 there. Robert

    Phone instantly switched to the A3 1x after doing this. Thanks! Where is the setting to do this manually on Pixel devices without using SCP out of curiosity??

    The CDMA and LTE femto are separate devices in one package hence the two Mac IDs and two IP addresses used by the unit. No port forwarding is needed as it's plug and play (generally). For CDMA, make sure the GPS is properly positioned and then leave it be. Sometimes it takes a few days for the unit to stabilize but if it doesn't then send me a PM and I can maybe see if I can poke someone to take a look at why it is not working properly.

    Rumors are that the beta will start on Monday, possibly at 10AM. Not sure what time zone that is. Opt in the Samsung Members app.

    Anybody else having issues with notification volume? Sometimes, when I unmute my phone, the notification volume stays muted.

    I hope I'm correct in my thinking that the note 10 is wifi 6 capable... Anyone using wifi 6 yet and know for sure?

    What is going on with Sprint and the S10 and updates. Seems like we have been the last to get them. Usually Sprint is good in that regard. Are they tinkering with the modem firmware and can't decide what works or not?

    Does anybody have any idea at all why Sprint would not activate VOLTE on the Samsung S9? Seems really strange how the S8 and s10 have VOLTE and the s9 does not. Is there some valid reason why? Is there a hardware issue with the s9? Just the normal fumbling and bungling? Looks really strange and it sure does not make Sprint or Samsung look good. This type of thing is why many people leave Sprint.

    All of the Band 71 equipment is 5g ready. It needs smartphones and firmware updates. Hopefully the backhaul needed is already installed. Given the same bandwidth, band 71 5g is expected to be twice as fast. This may not sound like much, but when you are at the edge of the cell or indoors it could make a world of difference.

    Is it safe to buy an S10 now or are the network problems still present?
