  1. maybe they are so used to running on a fiscal year that they forget to translate to actual year end
  2. If Son didn't do anything wrong, Sprint would be buying T-Mobile. That was his plan all along, right? Instead he has made wrong choice after wrong choice. Now he's rummaging through the rules of the capitalist business playbook to get a ROI through this merger attempt by trying to attach himself to the combined entity to leech off it's assumed success. Should have just played the short game by setting up his direct purchase, Sprint, for success instead of playing the long game of merging. Isn't that how capitalism works? You spend money to make money?
  3. This case it starting to sound like an episode of Judge Judy. Son has not only been confirmed to be withholding funds to Sprint to make a merger more appealing, but he's also offered to fund the competition? Is it possible the courts can just order Son to pay a fine for wasting everyone's time and costing Sprint money?
  4. Isn't December 9th the date of the trial with the states? Didn't they say previously that they wouldn't finalize the merger until AFTER the lawsuit was settled?
  5. Wish they would at least open up full spectrum access in the mean time. Isn't that just enabled through a carrier update?
  6. By soon, you mean Friday with the release of the new iPhone? Wasn't that how the first bit of downlink CA was brought live? I think it was back with the iPhone 6 or 6s
  7. After several "technical difficulty" popups sending me back a step or two, I managed to get an order placed at 7:14am...with an October 11-18 delivery 🙃 so much for Priority Status. Here's to hoping that date drops as it gets closer to release date
  8. Carriers not doing deals this year?
  9. After digging through https://www.apple.com/iphone/LTE/ I think it is safe to say that the new modem inside each of the 11 models is this: https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/product-briefs/xmm-7660-brief.pdf
  10. They've gone back and put the old antennas up, and it worked for like a day. They are still there, but it's back to a non-useable data area again. The signal is fine, which makes it worse because I have about a 5 mile stretch of my drive to and from work where I can't even stream apple music. I know two site managers for this area so I'll reach out to them if it's not fixed by end of next week.
  11. I'm curious what the threshold is before throttling kicks in. Just saw the vague line about heavy data users could experience decreased speeds. This would be awesome for family in East Texas that currently use ATT service. Is it really just $30 per line for those that don't already have a service through them?
  12. Air 6468 model is being replaced by 6488 to prepare for 5G
  13. There's a clearwire conversion site that was recently performed along my drive to and from work. I first noticed the huge deadzone where I would drop down to 3G and finally noticed the crew on the tower. It's been about 2 weeks since they've been out there, and I'm still having service issues. My phone shows full B41 signal strength, but the data is unusable. I have attached two screenshots from Field Test Mode and did some digging. The first screenshot is while connected to my magic box at work and it shows MCC 310 and MNC 120 which registers as Sprint. The screenshot while parked outside on the newly upgraded tower shows MCC 311 and MNC 940...which doesn't exist on https://www.mcc-mnc.com/ There is a listing for Sprint at MCC 311 and MNC 490 however. Could it be that a simple dyslexic switch of the value 490 with 940 has resulted in a dead tower?
  14. Could it help with the lower levels of the nearby buildings that may not get much signal from surrounding rooftop mounts? Wonder if anyone is going to complain about radiation having it so close to the street
