I have used opensignalmaps to determine that my EVO original 3G is connected to tower identified as SSID= 7891 SID = 4120. How can I found out if LTE service has been activated at that specific location. I am ready to upgrade my phone, but it is pointless if there is still no LTE in my vicinity. Thanks.
I was on my way home from work yesterday when I spotted something: http://goo.gl/maps/xDEK (GPS coordinates aren't Quite right, as I did this on my way back) From what I can tell this is a Sprint tower slated for a NV upgrade this month in Sprint's Ambitious June plan in Chicago.
So today 6/22/12 1:30pm i called sprint to see if they have more info on not only LTE but also the way slow 3g speeds in and around the dfw metroplex. Now before i start i have the galaxy nexus and the iphone 4s as a work phone avrg. speed tests on 3g with the nexus is normally around 600kbps or less up and 150kbps or less down and the 4s is normally around 1200kbps down and 400kbps up and these are side by side results. Now back to my phone call with sprint. so i started with LTE questions i asked when the switch was going to be turned on in dfw because when i purchased the 4s back in January they (sprint customer service) said that LTE was coming in early spring to dfw and when i purchased the nexus in may they said sometime in mid year across Texas but DEFFINATLY in june for dfw i was assured. Now they are saying that it wont be till october-november for dfw says sprint customer service tier3 and that even the the reception will be mostly in the downtown dfw/ftworth areas and not till beginning of 2013 will we see reception all through dfw metroplex. Then they asked me why i was so upset about this news because they said i dont own a lte phone so this doesnt affect me . WOW!!!!!!!!! I said well i have a samsung galaxy nexus the person proceeded to tell me that this is not a lte phone its 3G ONLY..... oh boy i said well the box, the about phone in the phone settings, the sprint website, and the rep who sold it to me says CDMA/LTE!!! He still said but the phone is not lte supported and we went back and forth for about 20 min and he (sprint tier3 customer service) and the person i was forwarded to his supervisor i assume tier4 say and i quote "THE SAMSUNG GALAXY NEXUS IS NOT SUPPORTED BY LTE IT IS A 3G ONLY DEVICE" so ended up being offered a full refund and a new upgrade free and they are overnighting me the Samsung galaxy SIII 32g at no charge the day it comes out for the inconvenience....................... so i now have questions!!!!!!!!!!! Is the Nexus really not supported by lte even though all documents say so? Is lte really been pushed back again to fall for dfw? Is the reception really supposed to only be in downtown areas till 2013? And lastly are sprint customer service agents brain damaged?!?!?!
