  1. I transferred my primary line from Boost Mobile to the 'Leonardo 5' plan; 1600 texts and minutes + 1500mb of data. Bought a brand new Moto E from Best Buy intended for Sprint Prepaid, paid $40 for it, activated really easily. Number port took about 15 minutes. I'm loving it; same service as I had on Boost with just 500mb of data less and it's saving me $30 / month. I'm not sure how they can afford it but I have listened to at least a dozen ads so far while placing calls in the past 4 days. RingPlus is a pretty innovative company as far as their software is concerned. When I get a voicemail it's transcribed into text and sent to my email as audio. Their website is really useful for usage analysis too.
  2. I call on my phone daily. Maybe 20 somethings don't use calling, but I use at least 500+ minutes / month, mostly for work.
  3. Congestion? No, no, this is their new service: GreenOn - slower data saves energy. it'll play really well with millennials, like John.
  4. B26 crawls along at about 3mbps on average for me, while B41 is in the 20s. Interesting. No, wait, that other thing...tedious.
  5. Now watch Sprint rally 50 cents in a day for no apparent reason This happens every time
  6. rofl wtf is the point of this if it counts against your data?!
  7. Sprint rallies almost like clockwork in the days before their quarterly results, then plummets after. Sprint will post good news but it's never good enough to sustain their gains.
  8. Does Sprint get to count their 3g and more roaming as native coverage?
  9. AT&T fell to last place in Grand Rapids (where I'm from) in terms of media download speed. Which is amazing, considering just a couple years ago I couldn't even muster 1mbps downtown on Sprint. AT&T used to be the 2nd best carrier in MI because they had coverage everywhere. Now that even T-Mobile has coverage up north, they're dropping all over the place. I get faster speeds at my house with Sprint than with AT&T, which is also amazing, because I live on a hill, and barely get a signal from any carrier.
  10. It's funny, because Legere was making fun of Verizon of 'XLTE', then immediately came up with 'Extended Range LTE'. I just don't believe T-Mobile is getting away with what they are; their coverage map is a complete farce, their 'UnCarrier' stuff is totally 'carrier' stuff. It's...it's...preposterous!
  11. I just don't see a nationwide license; I see them buying 600 where they can't buy 700. It would be nice to have nationwide but if they're going into this bidding on reserve (the fact that they even NEED a reserve means something), I just don't see them sweeping the auction like people wish. I see nationwide 600 AND 700mhz no problem though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I agree wholeheartedly on the first paragraph. I think T-Mobile's investment in the 600mhz auction is going to be a lot LESS than their fans wish it will be because it would be extremely short sighted to blow their lead on something that wont even be usable for 4-5 years. They've already mentioned they only plan on buying 600mhz where they can't get 700mhz. 4-5 years is more than enough time for Sprint to catch up AND take the lead. If T-Mobile falls back to 4th place, how will they even build out their 600mhz spectrum? If Sprint actually needs the spectrum, they can just buy it from T-Mobile after they dig themselves into a hole. It's a surprisingly smart strategy.
  13. There aren't any 'greater tiers' though, that's the whole reason a lot of people are on unlimited, because it's unlimited, and we don't have to deal with tiers. If Sprint introduced another 'unlimited' tier that pushes deprioritization back to 40gb, then would you be saying the same thing? Because at that point it would be for monetizing more than decongestion. The 23gb is completely arbitrary. They should have done 24gb, or at least something to make their data cap more attractive than T-Mobile. In all honesty, the cap doesn't bother me as much as the idea that they're selling unlimited, with limits. Don't call it unlimited if it's not unlimited; this is not unlimited because 23gb is a limit. I'll end my hissyfit on that note. #moveforward
