    Netgear 4G LTE Router Gateway/New Plans

    Is the Netgear 6100D modem/router considered the best residential device that has Ethernet ports?
  2. When the companies know what 5G actually is, then they can deploy it. Right now, it is just 1 higher than 4G (?). I personally think if there is a merger that the new company name should be Sprint. Not T-Mobile, it needs to be a better name without a hyphen. Sprint is far more than wireless, look at their fiber network around the world, that is of very high quality. This is one of the big reasons why T-Mobile want Sprint.

    Network Vision/LTE - Puerto Rico/Virgin Islands Market

    Are there any recent speed tests in PR?
  4. I have been places with the iOS app, where the app sees native 1x/EVDO/LTE coverage. It is never shown on the map. Never had an issue with the Android app.
  5. Has anyone found that the iOS iPhone app actually successfully logs and reports coverage for Sprint? I found that only the Android app works for reporting coverage, at least over the last month.
  6. I have never seen any preferences be restored from my google account, these are on Samsung S7/S8, LG V30, Nexus 5X, etc. I do prefer that all apps are installed with their defaults as having no noises, no notifications, no anything. It makes a happy first impression. Just my preference.

    iPhone 8, 8+, X announced

    I personally would wait for the next iPhone model, hopefully for the addition of the the 600 Mhz band. You can roam on T-Mobile's 700 Mhz band with the current iPhones, it would be nice to roam on their 600 Mhz band when available. With or without the merger.
  8. I would like the default install of this app to have NO alerts enabled, no status bar icons and to disable the reset data connection button. An option to disable screen edits, so when I press the screen, I don't accidently initiate an edit, then having to press cancel. Or use the Google save/restore app settings feature they make available.

    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    Sprint is building towers, brand new towers. There is a limit to how many they can build though.

    Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    A lot of locations charge Sprint and other cell companies a lot for them to have a DAS, sometimes millions per year, depending on the site.

    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    That is what John Saw said. He was very specific. IF the area has roaming enabled. It will use LTE on T-mobile and other partners.

    Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    That is in the busy city? That looks great.
  15. Areas outside of these soft launch locations will have to wait until around the January time frame. By the middle of next year is when all devices sold have to have VoLTE enabled from the get go.
