    Network Vision/LTE - SF Bay Market

    Also to add onto my earlier post, I just randomly remembered that I've connected to B41 in Alameda just in a few places, Nob Hill near the Fruitvale Bridge and The Beanery in Alameda Marketplace on Park St (it's a cafe in a building with a bunch of other small business & a health food store) I'm just guessing from experience but I don't believe there are if many B41 sites in Alameda mostly because B25/26 do such a great job because most people here seem to have every carrier but Sprint.

    Network Vision/LTE - SF Bay Market

    From my experience in Alameda Sprint has done a pretty good job of creating a pretty usable network. There are still some dead zones like inside most stores in South Shore (especially around Chipotle or anything around that side) and a couple of places along Park St like Julie's Cafe & Tea Garden (but they have wifi so it's not a big deal). I usually forget I have Sprint in most places; which is a pretty good compliment, but becomes really noticeable when it doesn't work. Because I have an iPhone it takes more work to find out which LTE Band I'm connected to so I usually don't bother to check unless I'm bored and impressed by the speed or that my phones not working and I'm trying to figure out why. Also it's summer so I'm usually at home camping on wifi but I recently got a job in the Oakland Hills and the service at work is beyond terrible. It's like going through NV all over again except rather it being the networks fault of not being upgraded it's just the location (tons of trees +hills + 580 nearby = dead zone) Overall I'm pretty happy to be a Sprint customer (except at work) and they're holding up pretty well especially since B26 is mostly optimized where I've been around the East Bay.

    How to break your concentration

    The last time I was that video was in middle school like 5 or 6 years ago. I'm loving all of the new Sprint commercials. Whoever their old advertising firm was just terrible and didn't know how to really represent Sprints energy but this new one is just killing it. Sent from my iPhone 6 using Crapatalk

    I was wondering the same thing because I'm set on going to get mine replaced whenever I have the time. I was looking on making an appointment at the Genius Bar but I didn't know what to put it under as. Sent from my iPhone 6 using Crapatalk

    iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus User Thread

    Yesterday I finally caught up with this thread after not reading it for a while I learned that the crescent front camera was a thing. I immediately grabbed my iPhone and stared at the front camera realizing that it wasn't supposed to look like that and that my front camera has always been like this since day one but never knew it was a defect. I shook my phone to see if the camera moved and luckily it didn't but I remember that the crescent used to be much bigger but always thought it was just the glare and never thought much of it. I just shook my phone and there is a really distinct sound of something moving inside rattling quite loudly. Should I get it replaced or continue living on knowing that something inside my phone is pretty loose? Just thinking about it makes me want to get it replaced because knowing there's something wrong will just annoy me into a looney house.

    For the first time that I've noticed I've been able to keep an LTE signal from my school all the way home without it dropping or cycling airplane mode! Long live Tri-Band or at least B26 optimization in this case Sent from my iPhone 6 using Crapatalk

    Actually someone found out in the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus forum that the iOS Sensorly app will map speed test results. I've tried it and now my house is a yellow dot Sent from my iPhone 5S using Tapatalk

    I've been waiting a week on Sunday for my 64 GB Space Grey 6. 2-4 weeks now seems pretty accurate… Sent from my iPhone 5S using Tapatalk

    Thanks and hopefully the 2-4 week timeline isn't true and it's just Sprint attempting to save themselves from angry hordes of people yelling at CS on the phone and people attempting to burn down Sprint stores… Sent from my iPhone 5S using Tapatalk

    Just wondering but will Sprint now send you a tracking number when they ship your phone or like during the pre order madness the phone will magically appear one day? Even though I ordered this Sunday afternoon I would like to know if I should expect a tracking number or let the Apple gods decide when I get my phone. Sent from my iPhone 5S using Tapatalk
