  1. It was just an early April Fool's joke. But this post isn't. And in short they still suck for me. And the other three prevail.
  2. How generous. What have they said? Like having 2x or was it 10x as many cell towers and density as everyone else? It must be celebration, because they now cover " " Verizon does... LOL!
  3. And as always, the bulk of their density is closest to and in the cities than other carriers, especially in some areas where they have the lowest density in suburbs and exurbs.
  4. T-Mobile, who the f*** are you anyways? And where is your coverage outside of my town center, mall, and nearest city? And no, 2G in between doesn't count in 2016. (rhetorical)
  5. Will we hear the classics buzz phrases of the month that he/she uses? And if he does lose it, will we hear them screaming at every opponent "Yeah, no. [sic] Troll along."? That would be hilarious.
  6. So THIS is where you can get some real free candy!
  7. 5000+ dances and counting. Quite the professional dodger, deflector and derailer. You have to admit, it takes skill to defend a company like that. Especially not being an employee!
  8. Blind fanboy base, like Apple. It seems like everyone needs something to defend nowadays, and T-Mobile is the religion du jour for some. Same with older VZW users: "My coverage, coverage, coverage, coverage, coverage". Reminds me of a decade to few years ago when Sprint trumped VZW in certain areas in the rural and suburban tri-state. "I have coverage here on Sprint and you don't " *silence* It'll be nice when this fad cult simmers down to a few cranky employees as well. And good luck to however they'll messily scatter their B12.
  9. You'll need some pink marker for that hat. Besides big brother, it seconds as a Big Two and Big Yellow Bus protector.
  10. Not the baddest. Did the big 3 triopolists pay you (and RootMetrics) to say that? The bestest.
  11. It goes to show you how miserable and nasty they all are. Any normal person would have thrown the basket and cards away and laughed it off eating free treats. Another shining example of what kind of people support T-Mobile.
  12. Which is unfair, meaning markets using the other phones could now have different results. Also any market they don't use the same phone for all carriers I'm not happy with. I wonder if RM will have the decency to retest those markets (wishful thinking), or are we going to have to wait for them to choose better phones from the start next semester. I'm really not happy with what's going on for the 2H results.
  13. Then afterwards, they Sprinted like hell outside for a signal. They forget the WiFi inside.
  14. That's the type of deflection that's not even trying. Not a single one of those post addresses the issue at hand, either. And although no one should really take upvotes or downvotes seriously and emotionally as some of them do, it is ironic how they gang up and do just that to show their support for deflective, noncontributing nonsense. So yeah, low-band is only good when it's branded, apparently. AT&T, Verizon and Sprint's low-band is crap, but theirs is a speed supplement worth getting a new phone over.
  15. It doesn't bother or affect me, but that's why Sprint is the only hope for a lot of us. I have my fingers crossed for next year, especially seeing how much they've done just finishing most of NV (on time) alone this year.
  16. I can't disagree with the argument I've seen that they should've used Nexus 6s or something better for this quarter. Reusing S5s for AT&T and Verizon and two different phones for Sprint and T-Mobile isn't fully unbiased. All phones should be the same, and IMO I wish they'd use more than one e.g. including an iPhone for far more inclusive results. They have a great platform but it feels like they can't go that extra mile.
  17. YIKES. Good find! They're just testing the call quality we all use day to day (unless a T-Mobile user has a contact list full of T-Mobile users) and it's this bad.
  18. Come and get that Wi-Fi Thy doth not get that H + So mid-band or leave
  19. This article's got you covered, image-wise. I wonder where they hold the services.
  20. That's not completely wrong. LTE is important in general and it's massively important in cities and the densest parts of metro areas. However for GSM networks, HSPA+ is very necessary (and efficient) for outlying suburban and exurban areas, because LTE simply can not fully cover these areas and low band LTE either isn't available, they've not deployed it yet, or they need something more than low-band. As I've said before: AT&T, Verizon and Sprint were all competent enough to create virtually ubiquitous (unless on the edge of native coverage) 3G networks and have that fallback no matter how dense an area is - not 100% always for legacy devices. That can't go away for a while although LTE densification and prioritization are indeed inevitable.
  21. Sure, but -- typical city universe logic. There's no such thing as suburbs or commuter towns. Well maybe some will admit direct suburbs exist and call them commuter towns (which is wrong). It's cities, and then desert and mountains. Well for those of us in the "rural", 3G is really damn important for edge cases, pesky areas (elevation, for those of us not in flat areas) or older buildings. And this need for 3G will not go away until LTE is really, really dense.
