  1. Increased from $1.99/month/line. Sprint is lacking in my area, so this is a good opportunity to jump ship. This is just a PSA for people that don't comb over their monthly billing statements in detail (I certainly don't). I think it's been 4-5 years since the last increase. I've suffered with Sprint's subpar CS, coverage, and speed for over 10 years now and the value proposition just isn't worth suffering any longer. Credit to Reddit or I would have never bothered to check my bill: https://www.reddit.com/r/Sprint/comments/83wqcx/26_increase_in_administrative_charge/ I also confirmed with Sprint chat to cover my ass when inevitably I'm charged an ETF when I port out. Check if you still carry a balance on your phone before canceling service.
  2. I agree, but I also understand why they do it. It gives the illusion that their plans are "cheaper" by about $5/month. Taxes and fees for my plan add about another 10% to the total monthly cost. If ARPU is $50 and taxes and fees are an estimated $5 per month. For 60 million subs, that's $300 million per month, or $3.6 billion per year. Respect to TMUS.
  3. Global Roaming. It's fairly unusable depending on your level of patience. I was frustrated even using Uber. Loading any websites with even basic images are a pain as well. It's okay mainly to check up on email. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Airtel @ Mumbai airport (BOM). BTW, these are all with an iPhone 7 Plus. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Actually, I think TT is Avea, not Turkcell. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Data point for Istanbul Ataturk Airport (IST). Turkcell UMTS faithfully throttled to 64kbps. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Is Trump CEO of Sprint now? Spring a last minute, ill-advised surprise on people, and then walk it back once you realize it was a bad idea?

    Moto X 2015 "Pure Edition" [users thread]

    Are you in the right thread? I thought the MXPE doesn't work with Sprint CA.
  9. Gonna need to wait for iOS 10 jailbreak too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Great app. I hope the developer finds some time to continue to work on it. I saw some previous posts mentioning the widget being broken in 9.x, but it works for me? Thanks Nahum. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Moto G

    It'll work on BYOD. https://www.sprint.com/landings/bring-your-own-phone/ Eligible devices - Coming Soon: Samsung Galaxy S7 Special Edition Samsung Galaxy S7 edge Special Edition Moto G4 Moto G4 Plus What I'm interested to know is if CA will work properly. Or if it'll be nerfed like the Moto X PE. Also 2x or 3x CA? Sent from my LGLS996 using Tapatalk

    LG G Flex 2 [FCC ID ZNFLS996]

    Sorry, I don't know for sure. Are you able to tell from the PLMN? It's 311-870. The majority of the time I see 310-120 around here.

    I see. I didn't know that. Thanks. Midtown St. Louis. Right after I tested, I checked the engineering screen again and it showed primary/secondary of 375/375, going along with what you mentioned.

    LG G Flex 2 [FCC ID ZNFLS996]

    I see this is reported to have 2x CA, but haven't seen screenshots or confirmation of CA in this thread. Can one of y'all owners confirm CA is working well? Thinking about picking up a used model. Thanks. Sent from my LG-LS980 using Tapatalk

    LG G2 Users Thread!

    Happened to me occasionally on ZVG, usually after extended uptime. A reboot fixes it. Just updated to ZVH, so I don't know if it improved at all. Sent from my LG-LS980 using Tapatalk

    Current Sprint PRLs

    FP says this is a prepaid PRL. I'm getting it on a postpaid Aquos Crystal. I hope my roaming isn't cut off. Edit: Okay... Update PRL put it back on 25023.
  19. Things are regularly under 1 Mbps down in downtown during a weekday. On a game day I don't even bother trying and flip to airplane mode.
  20. I'm guessing because the Aquos doesn't work on GSM bands? What are your other phones?
  21. Where did you find it? It doesn't show up for my account.
  22. B26. B25 was roughly the same down speed, but slower upload. Couldn't get B41 in the building. Near Compton/Olive <1 block from Pappy's.
  23. Not sure if there's much to brag about. Speeds are probably fine in underpopulated areas, but urban STL is already way over capacity, even with triband. Downtown/midtown has similar LTE speeds during daylight hours.

    Google Hangouts w/Voice (Was Google Voice)

    In the recent past, Hangouts/Voice integration used a link to send MMS images instead of sending the image directly over the network. Has that been fixed?

    Network Vision/LTE - SF Bay Market

    Agree. Especially with newer handsets, it took Sprint a long time to get CSFB working.
