  1. You beat me to it. It’s great to see that but it also shows the untapped potential Sprint has always had. Next step is them maintaining that second place spot and slowly increasing Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. 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.

  3. 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
  4. Well I have been off Sprint for about a year now. I decided to come back to save a little money. Before I left, I had issues with the service. Coming back as of the start of this month on a trial basis, I did notice a difference in coverage more so in my apartment that was only covered in b26 and having to use a magic box to get decent speeds. Now I have b25 that gives me about 10-20mbps along with major speed increases around Columbus. Finally having VoLTE was a nice treat as well. After these experiences, I decided to port in my line to replace the number Sprint generated for me and signed up for a IB. Now is it perfect everywhere? No but my Verizon service wasn’t either but for me it’s worth the switch. Also the added perk of Hulu, Tidal and Amazon Prime saves me even more since I was paying for these already.

  5. Just got my 11 max Pro today and I must say. My speeds are good here in Columbus OH Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Nice! I hope it’s enabled in Columbus OH. It’ll be a nice treat extra treat when my iPhone Max arrives on Monday. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Anyone order from Best Buy and was promised delivery on launch day and then got a delayed shipping status? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. 64gb Pro Max in Green. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I was able to get in through Best Buy this afternoon and still have a delivery date of 9/20. The cool thing was they still offer installment billing and it was only $39 per month. Has there been a article posted on here yet concerning the RF performance for the new devices? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Nice speeds but we all know it’s the upload that’s killing them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I think we all just want someone who is going to be serious about growing Sprint unlike SB. In the slim chance the merger is denied, it would be nice for SB to sell off Sprint to someone who is serious about taking Sprint to the level we all know it can go. If Sprint was in better hands, this merger would not be needed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I guess T-Mobile didn’t expect this much pushback. But I do agree, Sprints CapEx and spectrum is what they were banking on having access to around this time. I have to wonder, if they’re doing 5G on B66 what the speeds would look like since most of it is 10x10 I want to say. The coverage will be good atleast. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I agree, they’ve gotten some good press over it, not the fastest but like many of the reviews are saying, it’s about the coverage. I would like to think Sprints deployment of 5G is the cheapest in cost compared to the other 3. Once they build it out enough, they should do some test drive like trials for people to try the network. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Looks like Illinois jumping on the train to block the merger. I’m sure what comes with this is people saying “if the merger is blocked, Sprint will be out of business and their assets sold to other companies.” Everyone is just completely looking past T-Mobile stopping their 5G deployment all together. To me, that looks like a money issue if you ask me especially if it’s suppose to be BAU until the merger closes. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. When is the merger expected to officially close if all goes well? It seems like everyday it’s something new and I’ve gotten lost along the way. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Probably a cherry picked location but who knows. Let’s try this with 4G and not 5G. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. I’m really interested to see what T-Mobile does with this 2.5 and the rate of tower integration. I would like to guess that cities are going to be very dense and the service not working in buildings should die as well. Crowded events like concerts and stuff shouldn’t be as bad either.

  18. Assuming that the current/ planned 5G markets will stay 5G markets immediately after the merger, I would assume it will stay stay at the pace it’s at. One less thing for T-Mobile to do. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. I was planning on switching back to Sprint (Verizon customer currently) around September. Would I still be able to get a current sprint plan since the deal hasn’t closed and probably won’t until October? Also has there been any detail as to if T-Mobile will honor the Hulu, Tidal add-ones for the 3 year promise? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. I wonder if that’s just for Sprint customers only? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. So we are far from done with the merger closing and being official? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Rootmetrics 1H19 report has been released. http://rootmetrics.com/en-US/content/review-of-the-us-mobile-landscape-US-1H-2019 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. Oh for sure. Sprint had all the makings to be a force. 5G is a prime example of that. As it currently stands, they have the most coverage. Son definitely had no plans to bring Sprint back from the dead. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. They did put that money to good use and it shows. Whatever they are doing to the network is keeping and adding customers. I just hate that Sprint couldn’t really get the slow and steady pace right. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  25. Sprint is showing some good results. Granted, it’s not 1gbps but it’s exceeded Verizon in terms of coverage and reliability. Kudos to Sprint! This is the good press they needed. Playing up their strength of allowing the reviewers to walk around the city and still maintain speeds looks great on them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
