  1. I hope so too. My theory is that whichever tower I was connecting to was adjusted to the point that the signal was no longer reaching me and whatever signal I'm getting now is from another tower. Who really knows tho.
  2. I had lte for a good few weeks and then it went POOF. Came back about 2 months later but with a stronger signal.
  3. These links should be useful to you.. http://s4gru.com/index.php?/topic/638-network-visionlte-phoenix-market-including-flagstaff-lake-havasu/ http://s4gru.com/index.php?app=blog&module=display&section=blog&blogid=1&showentry=148 http://s4gru.com/index.php?/topic/1631-questions-about-the-phx-metro-area/
  4. LTE has been absent in my area for at least over a month now after making an appearance for a few weeks. Luckily 3G works fine enough for me.
  5. Thank you, . I think this the greater challenge...I'm on my phone so I can't source but I was reading yesterday elsewhere that mobile data usage increased by more than 100% in the last year. Sprint is known however to cancel the accts of users who are using excessive amounts of data so that might be one way to sustain the network and unlimited. Sent from my Galaxy Nexus using Tapatalk 2
  6. Maybe with Clearwires spectrum? I'm sure someone who knows more than me will chime in. What concerns me most is that from what I have read, Att and Vzw are outspending Sprint on investments in their networks by much $ but that can always change and I have no idea what they are actually spending there money on compared to what Sprint is doing or why Sprint is spending less money.
  7. I thought Sprint stopped selling the Iphone4 in their stores? http://www.phonedog.com/2012/09/18/sprint-to-only-offer-iphone-4-online-starting-september-21/ Maybe they changed their mind..I haven't been in a Sprint store in a long time.
  8. Evo - You're not listening to anything I'm saying nor do you want to...or maybe I'm not making myself entirely clear. Either way, we can still be respectful of one another. For now I am done with this.
  9. I'm trying to understand by asking questions and instead I'm being attacked now by you. I guess I'm done with this community.
  10. I'm just saying people are not tethering as often as you think. Why keep attacking me rather than educating and providing links to all this research you keep talking about?
  11. Here is a question for you. I have Sprint and receive great coverage throughout the entire city. I'm almost always able to browse the internet and stream radio whereever I am. If tethering was such the issue as you state and was crippling the entire network, then why am I able to use my phone almost everywhere I go just fine?
  12. Robert - how often do a couple of tether's destroy the experience for other users? How many Sprint customers are receiving poor experiences directly because of tethering at any given time? IF we could have some hard facts like this then we could talk about it being an issue.
  13. When did I say people would want to tether more? I've been saying the entire opposite this entire time. Also. just because something is my opinion does not make it more right or wrong than anything you've said. You state things as fact yet are able to provide no sources to back it up. You talk like you know what you are talking about but the truth is your statements are actually just an opinion just like mine.
  14. It's already been stated Sprint can detect tethering so any loss revenue to them is something they are currently acceptable with. I'd hope they've done the math and came to the conclusion that the current policy currently benefits Sprint the most. Sprint makes it difficult to tether. Apps required to do so are not on the market and you often need to be rooted. Again, I think unauthorized tethering is done much less than we all think. Does anyone here really think that growth in data usage from the mobile connections is due to mostly tethering?
  15. It is just my opinion and I have yet to see any proof to say I'm wrong...can you source att's research? The fact is that in 2011, the top 5% of users on att and verizon used on average less than 4GB / month , while the mean was around 3GB / month. Maybe if everyone had there phone as an always on permanent internet connection replacing cable or dsl in there homes, constantanty connected to all the computers and xbox's in the house,..but I just don't see that happening very often. I suspect that tethering is not done as often as we all think, and that it is done less and less each day. I'd also hypothesize that high bandwidth apps on phones are causing greater stress on Sprint's network than tethering today and they are more of what Sprint is concerned about than tethering. In fact - every post I've seen on the internet with someone using 30GB+ a month of data has stated they done so by streaming netflix/youtube/radio all day or downloading torrents all day through there phone..not yet by tethering. If anything, Sprint should really raise all of our prices as the data connection on our phones is even more valuable and we can now do more through it than ever before.
