  1. Sprint has created the landing page for Sprint/T-Mobile merger. If the rumors for the merger finalizing tomorrow are true, the link should work: sprint.com/merger Right now you'll see a 404 page error but if you look at the url, it changes to: sprint.com/en/landings/welcome-to-tmo.html?ECID=vanity:tmomerger. It's probably a welcome to T-Mobile page.
  2. Hey everyone, I wanted to share something that I've been working on. I bought a Fibocom 850GL from eBay (the HP version) for about $30. My original intention was to create a DIY Portable Mobile Hotspot with a Raspberry Pi acting as the router and a TP Link WR902ac for a fast WiFi AP. I got two Cradlepoint antennas (I didn't trust any cheap ones on eBay/Amazon) that is rated to pickup 2.5 GHz and put the modem in an enclosure that converts from M.2 to USB 3.0 with a SIM slot. You can see it all together held by rubber bands (there is also a 20,000 mAh battery underneath it all): It worked great! I installed OpenWRT on the RPi and configured it to get a cellular data connection. I used it for a few weeks taking it around town and it was stable. However data speeds weren't as fast as it should be (about 42 Mbps). I initially thought it was the antennas but after some digging around I figured out a way to fix it. To keep it brief, abrasive on GitHub figured out how to change USB modes with an AT command. I tried changing the USB mode to 7 which allows it to work in Windows using CDC MBIM (before it wouldn't work in Windows). To my surprise it worked, and without any drivers! Best of all, I'm seeing much better data speeds almost upwards of 120 Mbps download. The modem supports 3xCA on B41. From here, I haven't gotten much further. I'd like to put this modem in a real router using PCIe instead of USB but I'm unsure about compatibility and drivers when looking some up. Now why this modem? You can activate it on Sprint as a "tablet" which costs $15/month after auto pay (the HP version only) for unlimited data. Also as a side note, right now I deactivated it. Should I reactivate it again because of the merger and the plan not being available? I don't need this but it's pretty cool to have.
  3. Android 10 is out!
  4. Sprint Teams Up With Rocket Fiber To Expand Connected Infrastructure For Tech-Centric Southeast Michigan https://investors.sprint.com/news-and-events/press-releases/press-release-details/2020/Sprint-Teams-Up-With-Rocket-Fiber-To-Expand-Connected-Infrastructure-For-Tech-Centric-Southeast-Michigan/default.aspx Pretty cool to hear.
  5. There is a V50 telegram group that is pretty active. Lots of info in there. Right now v20a is the latest version we know of for the Sprint V50 (Android 10 beta with January Security patch). You can install it pretty easily but downgrading is a little bit of a hassle and you need to downgrade to get any future updates. Hopefully Android 10 releases in the next few days or week (soon).
  6. I made a post on XDA about a leaked Android 10 Beta build for the Sprint LG V50. I thought I'd share here if anyone is interested I flashing it. Right now there's no way to revert back. https://forum.xda-developers.com/v50-thinq/how-to/sprint-lg-v50-android-10-beta-2019-t3995429/post80760511 Bing is a good site for finding obsure places on the Internet, that's how I found the OTA file.
  7. A friend of mine ordered through Best Buy with in store pickup. He got it today.
  8. Sprint updated the 5G network performance page: https://coverage.sprint.com/important_coverage_info_popup.html
  9. End of summer according to people in charge of the MB.
  10. Yeah, I posted all the engineering screens here:
  11. Huh, didn't know that. My LG G3 and G4 didn't have those issues if I remember.
  12. I'm pretty much sure that you tap on "Band 25 Enable" from On to Off and then the to change the Band Priority you just tap on it and rearrange it. http://imgur.com/a/DNRICJB Edit, disabling only B25
