  1. I know that a company is applying for Zoning approval to construct a new tower in Van Wert County within Van Wert City Limits. I have no knowledge as to what cellular company is having the tower built but sure hope it is the New T-Mobile. Their signal here is weak and needs to be improved. They previously had a large retail store in our shopping center but it lasted less than year as the poor service couldn't retain customers. Sprints signal was better but spotty if you wanted other than 3G. Their last close to successful store here was when they split the Radio Shack store and we all no ow t
  2. Both Good Points that I dii not consider. I think I am just looking for improved wireless service in my area after all the incomplete promises in the past. I do believe it will be much better in the future.
  3. T-Mobile is working on a new “T-Vision” device that appears to be running on Android TV Hope they complete the combining and deployment of the Sprint and T-Mobile wireless networks first. https://9to5google.com/2020/07/17/t-mobile-android-tv-fcc-leak/ Another story here https://www.cordcuttersnews.com/fcc-listing-suggest-t-mobile-has-android-tv-device-in-the-works/?fbclid=IwAR2Y24wKxdsDgApMwz-HDaKg6bldixAfDVyZcoq8q4_UB390paJ2Dip_D0E
  4. I signed up for it and just reserved the free line to be used later. I did not have to buy a phone or BYOB to get it. We will wait and see how it goes from here.
  5. Twitter post shows the results for Tmobile. https://www.t-mobile.com/news/t-mobile-q2-2019-earnings
  6. I stand corrected then, Guess part of it must be not available to the public. My bad.
  7. Under Seal just means where it was filed. Not the same as "Sealed" which means it can't be seen.
  8. Thanks for this post. I have been noticing that my clock also is off by 4 hours sometimes inside my building. I didn't think to check that it was carrier related but will check it the next time. I do roam onto other carriers inside the building unless standing next to the front window.
  9. I like that look better for businesses. Wish my area had the needed coverage to qualify for one I could use in our coffee shop. These old brick buildings downtown loose signals once you are about 5 feet from the window.
  10. Sprint Awarded $26.9M In Cell Phone Trafficking Suit http://newsroom.sprint.com/sprint-awarded-269m-in-cell-phone-trafficking-suit.htm?linkId=52549886
  11. Intresting, FORBES Will Townsend predicts Sprint wins 5G Race and that Nokia and Ericcson will merge. https://www.forbes.com/sites/moorinsights/2018/01/10/3-predictions-for-telecommunications-and-enterprise-networking-in-2018/#7668ffd7776d
  12. Yes it is and probably why the phone is being discounted so heavily. Think we may own an expensive paperweight now.
  13. Have tried self activation twice and failed both times. Says to contact provider. But also did not copy any data from the Samsung G6 edge that I am trying to replace. Copied the apps but none of the data within the apps. Has anyone been successful with transferring content and data from another phone to their essential? Hmmmm, maybe I can return this one and do another after the 23rd to get the camera.
  14. Just received my phone. Like the look and feel of it. Downloading update to 7.1.1 now. Need to contact Sprint and pay off the lease. Has anyone found a good case and screen protector?
  15. I ordered one online. Plan on paying the lease off as soon as possible. If it works good enough may buy a second one to replace a Samsung G5.
  16. This is a great improvement in how the map displays full screen. Looks like a lot of areas are now more accurate. I do wish the colors had more contrast as you zoom in on an area but it is definitely a big improvement. Hope they continue to improve and densify their LTE coverage. Will be glad when it gets to my area and they fill in the remaining holes in Ohio.
  17. I just received an email that I will not be getting a Magic Box at this time. Not a big surprise but I was hopeful. Maybe in the future. Not sure why it came from and includes the link to The Employee Phone Care Team" I am not an employee of Sprint and never have been? "Dear Sprint Partner, Thank you for your interest in and registration for a Sprint® Magic Box. We have experienced a tremendous response from our employees, customers and prospects (15 times higher than expected!) for the Sprint Magic Box. Due to very limited inventory, we are currently undergoing a soft launch (extended
  18. Robert, I am not Bitching, I am giving my opinion. So, I can't say that I am frustrated with them spending money on other items instead of their network is frustrating? Many have had similar post and opinion that the Radio Shack, Pokémon, Tidal etc. was money that could of been used to improve the network. That is not the same as saying Sprint Sucks or other negative comments that we all see on many other sites. I have been with Sprint long time and recommended them to many friends and family over the years. While I can no longer do that to anyone in my area, I just last month had a fa
  19. Frustration leads to nay saying. Quit spending Money and Time on useless things and expand the network to all areas as previously promised many times and never delivered!!! Last word I received from Sprint is that there are no plans currently to upgrade the towers I use at home and work. If it isn't better with either a Magic Box or by the time T-Mobile finishes their upgrades here I will have to consider changing services after over 15 years.
  20. Verizon buys 5G wireless spectrum holder for $3.1 billion https://www.theverge.com/2017/5/11/15621814/verizon-buys-5g-wireless-spectrum-straight-path
  21. Just installed it and also hope it fixes the battery draining.
  22. I did the preorder also. Hopefully they will approve it. Does anyone know what the Qualifactions to be accepted are? Why don't they list them? It might save some time if they did if we know we don't meet the Qualifications.
  23. I get 2 to 3 a week that match the first six numbers of my phone. I never answer them and immediately block the number for calls and text. Have never received a second call from any of the numbers. Also get a few that say "reported as spam" wish more were that way. The strange thing is that none of the other lines on my account get them so that has me wondering what the connection is.
