  1. Yea I have been waiting to post about it but coverage in the cicero area seems to be getting better. At work I would jump in between 3g & 4g but today it was 4g all day. I ran a few tests and were between 4.5-8mb down. I will see tomorrow if I stay in 4g all day. If so they must have turned a tower on nearby because when I was jumping in and out of 4g I was getting 4g between 1.5 & 2mb last friday.
  2. LOL...Yea I read about all these things like rooting your phone. I think I am completely happy with it the way it is. If I don't know what I would be missing how can I miss it. Plus I try not messing around with things like that until I have nothing to lose. That'll be 18-22 months from now. I just added a few apps and wallpaper. I only use it for basic things so I don't think I even need to consider rooting it. Thank You I appreciate the advice.
  3. Okay i think i figured it out lets see. Okay now a stupid qestion how do i delete it from the clipboard? Or will it just get written over when i clip other things? Thanks EDIT: Never mind figured out how to delete it.
  4. I have it on an app so I could access it quickly. No I did not know that Thank you. I will try. However right now I am trying and it won't let me. I will play around with it and see if I can figure it out. Thanks again. Okay cool I was hitting the wrong button...Thank You! Nice and easy now!
  5. Well I just got back from Best Buy not far from me on the North Riverside/Berwyn boarder and was rocking at about 25mb downloads on speed test. According to someone in another forum the 37-38mb download speeds were extremely fast so here is what I got from emailing it to myself and click the link it will show the results.

  6. Check the post above. I was also at another site still close to my house but I was also getting 22-25 download and 7-12 upload. Any idea why only about 5-10 blocks away at my house it drops almost in half maybe a little less than half. I suppose it doesn't matter cuz I just connect through wifi but was just curious. Thanks, Jay
  7. This is my first smart phone so I am learning but I attached it from my phone and emailed it to my self and this is what was sent to me. Hope this helps. Ok cool click on that link.

  8. I have reported some okay signals of LTE in North Riverside/Riverside area. I think I have located where the signal must be coming from. Not far is Broadview where I was just at Target @ 17th & Cermack and I was rocking out at 37-38 download speeds and 7-8 upload. I tested it every few blocks on the way home and the signal was getting weaker and weaker. So that is where I am getting my LTE from. I just don't know where exactly the tower is located somewhere over that way.
  9. Okay a town away from me is where the signal has to becoming from in the Chicago burbs of North Riverside/Riverside area. I was just at Target in Broadview, IL and I was getting 37-38 download speeds. So some of the near West Chicago suburbs should be getting some descent connections.
  10. Well I have reported over in the Chicago sub-forum But I suppose I should post here. I am seeing LTE connections in chicago near west suburbs. Cicero is flaky in and out of LTE a matter of a few feet which is weird but by my house a couple towns away the North Riverside/Riverside area I am getting LTE in and out of my house except for the basement and it is pretty wide spread a pretty large area. I read that a new tower was up in the last 6 months close by so it must be on. I have been getting anywhere between 5-13 MB inside my house. Although down near Alsip I did pick up briefly a signal for 25 MB down.
  11. Well I just got home and the north half of Riverside and then south end of North riverside where I live by the mall is a hot zone. Last 3 where taken in my house. download speeds in mbps-8.38, 11.39, 8.36, 13.38, 12,76, 12.28 upload speeds- 5.63, 5.89, 2.54, 5.96, 5.40, 4.66 pings-66, 57, 58, 62, 65, 45 Anyone in that area should be having a blast.
  12. Okay this is my first smart phone so I don't know how to put up pics or anything but I am Happy to report here at work in Cicero, IL I am hitting 4G. I ran 2 tests on my phone activated minutes ago. It reports test 1@3:33 3441kbps down 1141kbps up and 50ms ping. @ 3:34 it is at 3707 kbpps down 1254 kbps up 59ms ping. Now I am showing 3g again. but it was showing 4g at time of test. UPDATE: Just ran another test in 3g horrible.323 down 21 up 193 ping. However I moved 5 ft 4G picked up at 5557 down 2261 up and 73 ping. Note: All tests are from in a building.
  13. Sweet I just received my phone today and activation will be implemented and complete tomorrow. My phone says updated on the box so I would imagine it is fully up to date is there something I should look for to know for sure that it is? Thanks! I'm look forward to getting this up and running and all settled in tomorrow. Anything like tips or tricks I need to know please let me know. THIS IS MY 1ST SMARTPHONE! Thanks again.
  14. Hey I am new to the whole smart phone thing. This is my first smart phone Galaxy S3. I was wondering was is a good sd card. I know micro sd but I am getting a 32gb. Does the class matter. I know 10 is fast but is it just based on your needs. I really don't think I would be doing anything extreme with it maybe some downloads of music and some pictures and that stuff is kind of something I don't really do. If I did anything with music it would probably be done on my mac and then transferred to the card. Thanks for your help. Update: I think I am gonna go with a 32gb class 10. It is a store brand card but it is reasonable for 24.99 and they are a computer store that I always use for flash drives and computers. I hope that is a good decision in regards to a card but that is what I have read a few places to use. 32gb is probably more than adequate.
  15. Well I just finalized everything and got the headache over it turned in to a really big pita experience with in getting a phone. Although sprint was really helpful which made it easier. BUT FINALLY! Come Thursday I am a member of sprint family with a Galaxy S3 and can report any progress by North Riverside, Bewyn/Cicero, Brookfield area and by my lady friend's down in Alsip.
