  1. My argument also.... Well said! Champagne promises on a paper plate budget. And Softbank isn't going to give you money or keep you... you'll (Sprint) will be back on the chopping block for partners/ merger victims....
  2. Sprint... just wait a little longer... it's coming.... almost ... keep waiting... LOL I want them to do more than just here or there improvements... when is the magic switch going to be engaged to fix so many slow network issues...
  3. So question for you all... what is up with my speed test at home yesterday... Download: .48 Mbps, upload: 8.40Mbps?? Isn't this backwards or is it because the network is overloaded and download is slow due to that? I've also never have had upload speeds over 3 or 4Mbps. ?? I'm beginning to suspect they are re-farming 2500 for other uses, as I only now have 1900 available ever.

    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    Redspark... perfectly stated! Very true and well thought out observations of the facts. By the way, if the merger doesn't go through... it will be status as usual. I do not see Softbank putting anything more into Sprint. They will put up on the sale rack all over again and try to get rid of it as fast as possible. Sprint meanwhile will be in limbo as other carriers will be well underway with deep 5G deployment.

    Note 9 rumor thread.

    I know... I kinda did a double take on the spec sheet.... It's a sweet phone! I loved my Note!

    Note 9 rumor thread.

    Phonescoop It's updated it now... it has 71... when I looked earlier, 66 was as high a band it had shown.

    Note 9 rumor thread.

    Looked at the Note 9 specs... No band 71?? Really? What?!
  8. I'll have to pay attention next time. Was just in Rite-Aide by my house, but didn't look/notice. I wish Kroger would strike a deal. It's an absolute "0" signal zone in our Kroger. Always has been!

    There will be enough opposition. It's nice to see some clear thinking where a politician says, look at this merger from a benefit angle as well.

    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    I saw in the news headlines today, from Law 360 news, that Senator Mike Lee from Utah has asked the FCC and DOJ to weight the benefits of the proposed Sprint and T Mobile merger. The article seemed to state that the Senator is on the same side as Sprint and T Mobile (pro merger?) This might be a good positive for the merger! once in, You can hit the "x" to read the partial article. Senator Lee (Utah) wants the DOJ and FCC to weight the benefits of merger.

    and myself as well. Very unstable network. I think it has to do with launch of VoLTE. Things are being reconfigured.

    I understand your hope. But I don't want them to do it alone... They have tried and failed on too many different network "work"/upgrades and rarely actually complete any of it. T-Mobile actually does what they promise.

    Sprint to Begin VoLTE Soft Launch in September

    Wondered that too?
  16. Music streaming is hardly "Industry Shaking". This is T-Mobile making the announcement, not Sprint.
  17. Sprint gives very little actual detail during their earnings calls anymore. Very different than T-Mobile's earnings call just a few hours ago. I think the decent financials are bad from a merger standpoint. It will allow those who are just interested in maintaining 4 carriers more ammunition for keeping the status quo. Wonder what John Legere's "Industry shaking news" is on Aug 15th? He said "Let the speculation begin".... Maybe the roaming agreement? I don't think I'd call that "industry shaking"... probably something else.
  18. So was there an update to the merger? The shareholders were asking for updates.... Just wondered if they talked about it?
  19. Sprint and T Mobile investors are getting anxious for information: T Mobile and Sprint Investors Seek Deal Update on the Investor call
