    I just successfully switched my Pixel 3 XL to use the eSIM on Sprint. Works out of the box now. Since I already had this phone on the line, I had to swap to another phone and then swap back with the eSIM. Everything works. Super convenient. No more having to order the correct SIM from Sprint, and I can now swap between Sprint and another carrier easily (traveling internationally, or even using another domestic carrier).

    If you read the internet, for the last 7 years I have been a Sprint customer, every quarter I have been told that Sprint was going to go under and file for bankruptcy. Their position isn't pretty, but it isn't like Sprint is in some unique position. People like to be like, debt, debt, debt, but having more debt than revenue is pretty common. Look at Charter. $40billion in revenue but they have $70billion in long term debts. A company like AMD couldn't make any money for like a decade before their recent turn around. They sold, leveraged and won some key lawsuits that helped them stay afloat. Now they are kicking ass and taking names. This idea that Sprint needs to be at the same coverage level as AT&T or VZW to survive I think is a fallacy as well. They have great roaming agreements. This is how the dozens of regional carriers survive.

    I see this happen too. It is known about.

    I have to update. I was wrong. I forgot about the issue because it doesn't happen too often for me to be too worried. But my phone does randomly drop service but usually picks it right back up. It doesn't do what @Manny789, @tybo31316, or @Brad The Beast describes, mine just says Cellular Data cannot be activated, and then just cycles itself back on. I wonder if its an issue with the radio not handing off properly from one site/sector to the next. If so, it must be an inherent flaw in the Intel modem.

    They do need to add it where VZW and att are the only option.

    Yes, in my limited testing they only covered about a block. Probably similar coverage to a magic box if it was outdoors. The ones I found were all in a residential neighborhood. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk

    Still having to wait on VOLTE on my S9+ is another reason I want the merger. 6 months in and I still can't use it. Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Tapatalk

    I respectfully disagree with you on this. The FCC Filing isn’t propaganda in my opinion. Rather, it’s the most realistic and honest assessment of Sprint’s situation given the underlying empirical data on which the claims are based. It reveals a number of truths, including the “Monopole or bust” strategy that Sprint attempted. As far as anything being propaganda, I’ll attach that term to the investor statements, including the ones that Marcelo made over the years.... especially the time when he said this in May 2015: https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/sprint-s-claure-18-24-months-we-ll-be-no-1-or-2-network-performance I don’t believe Sprint will go out of business quickly. However, based on the sobering business fundamentals outlined in the FCC Filing, I believe it will continue to go out of business slowly... and then enter Chapter 11 if SoftBank doesn’t pitch in additional funds or if the credit markets tighten. “Churn-bomb” and “Liquidity wall” as used and supported in the report aren’t overstatements in my opinion. Sprint may be in better shape now than it was in certain respects in prior years, but it’s analogous to repainting a house when the foundation is cracking. I’m perfectly fine with Masa looking for a buyer. What I’m not fine with is that Sprint has been brought to the brink of a steep downward slope by SoftBank’s mis-management and devalued by its failure to adequately support its asset. Yeah, I think Sprint/T-Mobile will litigate this if the merger isn’t approved.

    Sprint’s recent FCC Filing is enough to get you depressed... Holy cow they’re in trouble. https://ecfsapi.fcc.gov/file/10415297968006/Sprint%20Standalone%20Ex%20Parte%20-%20REDACTED%20-%20FINAL%20-%204.15.2019%20%5BAS-FILED%5D.pdf There’s so much in this it’s frankly overwhelming, but here are these nuggets: “Footnote 55: Sprint chose not to participate in the 600 MHz auction in 2016 partly due to lack of financial resources and the need to spend cash on more immediate network needs, and partly because at the time it expected to successfully densify its network using monopoles, which would have reduced the need for low band spectrum.” Page 33: ”Churn-bomb” Page 38: “Liquidity Wall” If you think they’re telling the truth here, Sprint is in deep trouble...

    Didn't SoftBank have a provision where they would be required to buy all of the Sprint stock if they ever went over the 85% mark? I thought that was why they couldn't just put more money into Sprint. Just asking.

    Sprint stock price may fall to $3 IMO if merger does fail.

    https://www.cnbc.com/2019/04/16/sprint-stock-falls-10percent-on-report-t-mobile-merger-is-unlikely-to-be-approved-as-currently-structured.html So in your eyes layoffs for Sprint employees is good? That's what going to happen if it fails plus how can Sprint pay for 5G when they are paying still for LTE plus they need to expand coverage instead of so much roaming which they can't afford.
