    It's time for the Wireless Nerds to take our rightful place. We want access to the network early. We would rather live with a few bugs and limited coverage than to not have access to Sprint's LTE network at all. Sprint needs to continue opening up their LTE network even in more places where they can. And they will be afraid to do that in the next markets if we don't take a stand.

  1. LTE Service functional downtown near Jackson & Michigan. 2.3MB down 1.332 MB up. Things are coming along.
  2. Note II = Awesomeness!

  3. http://sensorly.com/map/4G/US/USA/Sprint/lte_310sprint#q=60018 http://sensorly.com/map/4G/US/USA/Sprint/lte_310sprint#q=60016 http://sensorly.com/map/4G/US/USA/Sprint/lte_310sprint#q=60068 This covers pretty much Park Ridge, Mount Prospect, Des Plaines, & Rosemont I will be able to contribute more next week when my LTE Device actually arrives, but according to Sensorly we have pretty good coverage in our areas. Have you tried the suggested solution of setting the phone into airplane mode?
  4. Note II can't get here soon enough!

  5. as I said. I stand corrected. I apologize for the inaccuracy of my statement.
  6. As i have seen from the site Robert provided. I stand corrected. No LTE Support at my office its a block away. Go Fig, will have great coverage at home.
  7. Coverage is Coverage. LTE or otherwise. LTE towers will be supporting not just LTE but both spectrum's of service. So, yes it does pertain to my devices.Since they removed all the Nextel towers, their non LTE towers are fewer and fewer. The towers will cover LTE & Non LTE Devices. 4g Support on these two devices has increased since the LTE towers went up however it is far from what this map shows as being covered.
  8. I have nothing nice to say today about this. Keep us posted Robert. Hopefully that buy out does us some good. Your doing great work. Coverage map - Lies. I am all over the Chicago & NW suburbs. I am using Galaxy SII (yes last years Galaxy) & Evo Shift & this map is far from accurate. Maybe the Note II will provide better reception since its got better bandwidth coverage than both my phones now. but its getting harder and harder to defend sprint when they post stuff like this and I get bombarded with response mails about how they live where they should be covered and it no workie. Sad sad state of affairs here in Chicago.

  10. Good luck... until Sprint allows sims to be utilized on their phones. They will continue to control the phones on their network and bringing outside phones will continue to be discouraged. However they still offer the best rates for a 2 year contract vs any other career. I am a sprint loyalist.. but not an apologist. I hope that the Japanese ideals come with this merger. its needed in America we get so abused here as cell phone users.
  11. After the debockle that was the start of this transition to LTE and the number of customers they lost in Chicago alone. This deal makes a lot of sense financially and will be great for us as consumers. Yes, the fear of change and more outrageous rates and data caps is there, however, if you look at the data usage in Japan and their business model there, I would suspect the "New Sprint" would be a combination of both ideals. and hopefully that does not entail the AT&T & Verizon 2gig data limit which is ridiculous to consumers & the industry as a whole.
  12. Full 4g Full 3g .. Roaming? So confused...

  13. Service in Chicago is running painful at the moment. Full bars, and roaming Yesterday and today, unable to complete calls due to unavailable service or just flat out dropping calls as dialing begins. Is this because the towers are coming online for LTE in the next week or so? is there an actual date for the turn on in Chicago or is it sometime in September thing? We are getting zero answers from our sprint rep per usual. So i defer to the experts here for an answer. Oddly, data seems to be functioning OK. However it is Roaming data plan in place even though i am a block from a tower i can see out our window.
