  1. As a trader the market chatter is that an announcement could come as soon as tomorrow if not by then by end of week.
  2. This merger is now totally different from what was originally planned merging and creating a fourth carrier, giving up spectrum, at this point I sound like a broken record. Son needs to give up and take the "L" and sell Sprint to someone that will actually spend the money and get Sprint back on its feet, if Sprint needs to file chapter 11 bankruptcy, do stock offerings, sell portions of their network so be it this has become a clown show at this point.
  3. 8615 is only 5x5MHz here in the Bristol TN/VA and surrounding area. Sprint has CA 8665/8615 here and still pretty speedy with speeds hovering in the 30Mbps during peak times and bursts over 50Mbps at times.
  4. Altice should just be number 4, they are already using Sprint's network for their wireless offerings. Spin off some PCS, BRS, and 800MHz and let Altice go at it.
  5. Pretty simple, its clear the DOJ wants to keep four carriers. Everyone knows that having three carriers will kill all competition in the wireless market. Best thing for Son to do is take the "L" and sell Sprint to someone that is willing to put in the CAPEX and give Sprint a nudge in the right direction.
  6. What a plummet on Sprint and T-Mobile....
  7. As a now full time stock trader, how bout that 25% move pre-market, easy money! 🤑
  8. Any of you experiencing your S10 dropping LTE for no reason? Mine has done it three times while at home and I am in a area that has a good signal -99dbm or lower, my S9+ has never done this. Kinda odd.
  9. Well I pulled the trigger I got the regular S10 (prism black) instead of the + model this go around. So far the RF experience seems to be on par with my S9+ I have really noticed much a difference yet but Sprint's service here as always been good. VoLTE calls connect instantly and sound great! Really digging this fingerprint scanner under the screen!
  10. I have the Galaxy Forever, I am still debating on pulling the trigger on the S10. Is it worth it for any of you coming from an S9+
  11. I noticed after the recent update, I still have the Samsung members app. I thought they would get rid of this after the final release??
  12. Just got the S9+ Pie update, really no VoLTE? Geeez
  13. I had to work on the issue first hand back in 2009/2010 when I was on the communications board for my county. Back then our county operated a Motorola SmartNet Type 2 800 system that was experiencing this Nextel interference issue after Sprint purchased Nextel. I suspected that Nextel knew about this becoming problem later down the road due to the fact that Nextel had went all around buying up 800 licenses for their iDEN network. Sprint not only had to pay for the re banding of our system but had to purchase our county entirely new radios both portable and mobile units due to the fact that the current configuration on the radio system which was built in 1997 wouldn't take the re-banded frequencies.
  14. The first chapter needs to be about Gary Forsee, chapter 2 should mention the word Nextel. Sprint was on a roll with 3G EV-DO back in the day and one of the best 3G networks back then, I believe Sprint would have been a competitive and strong company if they stayed away from Nextel and focused on additional 3G sites and future spending on new spectrum. Instead Sprint devoted their time to purchasing Nextel's lackluster 800 iDEN nework that ended up causing more headache once it was known that it was causing interference with 800 public safety radio systems.
