  1. Yeah im in a different part of Tennessee (puhlaski) and its working. Heading home shortly (michigan). Sucked not having service for 3 days.
  2. I was wondering why you asked that. I believe I got it before November. If im looking at the right thing the model is L720
  3. I have the samsung galaxy s4 sprint version. Sorry the htc g2 was my old phone.
  4. Yes, I just did it and it made no difference. Also, the sprint rep had me update the profile and when I did the ##72..., it tries to update the prl. The odd thing is snapchat works (wifi not connected) and I appear to be getting email.
  5. I am currently in Fayetteville Tennessee. Per signal check pro my evdo is at -72 but in () it says si wireless . This appears to be preventing me from making or getting calls as well as txt msgs. I called sprint and they had me go into cdma only mode am d do a ##72786#. However, they were not able to get me back to working. When I drive over to pulaski Tennessee I notice the si wireless disappeara and I get all info. My mom has a sprint iPhone and thats working fine. While my s4 is not. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  6. Here are some pictures of some guys upgrading an American Tower in Warren, MI (11 mile and Mound Rd). I am lead to believe it's a Sprint tower. Sorry about the pics I zoomed in a much as I could. http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/4445/CAM00273_zps4ea2214c.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/4445/CAM00272_zps86114869.jpg
  7. Interesting...that would explain why everyday when I'm merging from 696 to southbound I-75 my radar detector goes crazy. What you say above now makes sense and correlates with my Radar detector
  8. Here's a few more tower pics with site names if someone wants to dig through and see if I got lucky and got any sprint sites. http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00151.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00152.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00153.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00154.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00155.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00156.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00157.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00158.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00160.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00161.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00162.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00164.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00165.jpg <- no clue what this tower is maybe backhaul? http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00169.jpg <-base of above tower http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00170.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00166.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00168.jpg <- This was behind a comcast site might be a cable tower of sometype http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00172.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00173.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00174.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00175.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00176.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00177.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00178.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00179.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00180.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00181.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00182.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00183.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00184.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00185.jpg http://i1343.photobuckehttp://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00192.jpgt.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00187.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00188.jpg <- this tower is right at the I-75 to 696 interchange and on google earth you can see they were still building the site. http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00190.jpg <- This site they were working on the same time work was being done at the ATT site a few days ago. Maybe both ATT towers. I can't get to this one http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00191.jpg
  9. All, Here are a few more towers in my area....looks like most in my area are ATT. I'm curious as to who owns the cell tower sites in pictures 30,29,28...etc http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12412/CAM00130.jpg <- largest cell site I've ever seen http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12412/CAM00129.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12412/CAM00128.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12412/CAM00127.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12412/CAM00126.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12412/CAM00125.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12412/CAM00124.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12412/CAM00123.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12412/CAM00119.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12412/CAM00117.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12412/CAM00116.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12412/CAM00115.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12412/CAM00113.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12412/CAM00111.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12412/CAM00110.jpg <- Tmo or Metro PCS site?

  10. That tower is in melvindale. It's on outer drive dix-Toledo rd is to it's west and I75 and fort st are to the east.In going to try to get more pics today after work
  11. This is like a minute from my house and I drive by it everyday going to work. I'lll see what I can do to get better shots of the tower and the base equipment. There was a truck loading facility on the back side I bet I could go in there a get a shot of the tower with out the trees as well.
  12. I saw this tower being worked on in the Downriver area in Michigan. Not sure if it's a sprint one of not but I snapped a few pics. http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/CAM00069.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/CAM00068.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/CAM00066.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/CAM00065.jpg
  13. All, Saw this tower being worked on not sure if it's a sprint one or not here are some pictures I snapped and I hope linking to the pics in a dummy Photobucket acct is the best way to do it. http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/CAM00064.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/CAM00065.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/CAM00068.jpg http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/CAM00069.jpg
  14. Go into the app store and search for speedtest. Download the app. Then go into tools select change server, find one or two close to you and then go and run a test. After the test go back to reports and click on details in the details is like a network type it should say either like 3g, ehrpd or lte.
  15. And for those that care, I got the LG Optimus G the phone is AWESOME!
