  1. So it looks like you will be able to upgrade to the latest Galaxy after 12 lease payments in a 18 month lease. http://newsroom.sprint.com/blogs/devices-apps-and-services/samsung-galaxy-s8-and-samsung-galaxy-s8+-available-april-21-hpue-enabled-smartphones-boast-better-sprint-network-coverage-and-faster-data-speeds.htm?linkId=35980501
  2. Probably just the announcement and pre-order page for the LG G6, Sprint's first HPUE-capable device. No big news.
  3. 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.
  4. Read the fine print, "Savings until 3/31/18; then $60/mo. for line 1, $40 for line 2 and $30/mo. lines 3-4. Streams video at up to HD 1080p, music at up to 1.5mbps, gaming at up to 8mbps. Data deprioritization during congestion. MHS, P2P and VPN reduced to 2G speeds after 10GB/mo. Pricing shown with AutoPay discount applied w/i 2 invoices. Req. new acct. Other monthly charges apply** https://www.sprint.com/landings/unlimited-cell-phone-plans/index.html?ECID=vanity:unlimited
  5. Exactly, I really think that T-mobile is and has been setting the guidelines for the cellular industry lately. I think having the advertised price be the real price was perfect and should also be adopted by all carriers, cable, satellite, and ISPs providing internet service. I have Direct TV at the moment and plan on switching to DIsh and then switch again every 2 years to get the new customer pricing. But that is easier as there is no number to port and happens instantly.
  6. That is only makes a difference if you can access it. It isn't here yet and no plan to be here soon according to Sprint. 10+ year customer, started with Nextel. I don't understand why Sprint does nothing for long time customers and everything is for new customers only. Some of us remember when they did even small things for LOYAL customers who patiently suffered when service was terrible and Sprint was closing to extinction. I am comparing to cost to switch to V or T-mobile, running out of patience here.
  7. WOW, hope Marcelo's latest Tweet isn't what he thinks will work for a response. If so I feel they are going to loose a lot of customers. https://twitter.com/marceloclaure/status/831507181040177152
  8. Marcelo needs to beat it for me not to consider the switch. I have lost most of my loyalty and patience waiting for upgrades here for over 10 years. Sitting here in my shop, roaming on Verizon unless I go outdoors for Spring 3G. LTE is very spotty and almost non existent still.
  9. From John Legere's latest tweet, "and, like only the #uncarrier can do – we’re one-upping it..." Does this mean 5 lines for the same price as Verizon's 4 lines, going to be interesting to watch this all play out. Marcelo and Sprint waiting to go last and better both offers maybe?
  10. John tweeted he will respond in an hour. https://twitter.com/JohnLegere/status/831220907154628608
  11. "Unfortunately the towers in my area aren't planed to be upgraded with 800mhz LTE or b41 for at least 12 months." I have heard the same thing for my area BUT I heard it over 18 months ago so I wouldn't put much of any hope in that statement. There are still towers here with no Band 26 LTE and/or Band 41 LTE. According to a recent post in the TOLEDO NV 2.0 thread it may be due to a BRS spectrum conflict with WatchTV, an OTA Cable TV, Telephone, and ISP that covers a few surrounding counties using antennas mounted on your house/business. Unfortunately the only provider with high quality
  12. I agree that Sprint is improving and have made gains that they should Toot Their Horn a little. And as I stated ALL CARRIERS are guilty of false claims of things being Nationwide when it isn't so. I have been with Sprint since I started with NEXTEL before the merger. I hope Sprint continues to improve as the areas where they have are great. I just have to drive 45 minutes or more to experience it, that isn't Nationwide in my book.
  13. That test had to be in locations that had all 3 bands and CA working to get those results. Not true for many other locations. It amazes me how ALL carriers use test results, coverage results, and other data to claim something is Nationwide!! No carrier has anything Nationwide.
  14. All I want to know is; Who do I contact about being the entrepenuer to run the new store here in my town when they take over the RadioShack. I wanted to do this before by adding it to my current business but could not find anyone with the correct information. I contacted Sprint by letter, email, and phone without any replies.
  15. Hopefully the Kansas City Star sees the value and accuracy of the great information here. They should donate sufficiently to become a Premier Sponsor so they can get all of the information. They would only be able to publish (make the information public) with authorization from Robert and the S4GRU staff. With them quoting S4GRU, maybe some other papers, media websites and companies will visit the site and become sponsors through financial support. Actually the best would be for Sprint/Softbank to contribute to the cost of having this website up and online. They are the ones receivi
  16. Great Article Seth, Thank You. And thanks to Robert also for his continued contributions and clarifications on this article but also all of S4GRU.
  17. S4GRU is the only thing keeping my hopes up and staying with Sprint. Had I not found this site I would have left Sprint on my last contract renewal. Robert Sprint most definitely owes S4GRU for a lot of Customer Retentions
  18. I would like some advice and opinions from the S4GRU members. I have 2 lines available for an upgrade and 3 more available on 03/01/2014. With the possibility of subsidized upgrades going away most likely would you upgrade the 2 phones to Nexus 5 now through Sprint for the 16GB models or would I be better off getting the 32GB from the play store and possibly loose all upgrades when they disappear from Sprint? Is there that big of an advantage or need for the extra 16GB to cover the extra cost of $300.00 per phone? in advance. Dennis
  19. I leave Sunday for a week in Disney and will check what I can with my EVO LTE so it wont be as good as a Triband device. Just hoping to have coverage at the parks and surrounding area.
  20. Okay I am trying to crunch the numbers as to whether this makes sense to switch from my current EPRP data plan. Am I understanding this correctly? With the effective date being January 10, I have 5 lines now and 2 are upgrade eligible. If I upgrade them before the Jan 10 then convert all 5 to Framily, Sprint will wave the $15.00 per month, per line for the 2 lines I just upgraded and got new phones for the subsidized price of $199.00 each or so?
