  1. I have Sprint and still on the framily plan if you can believe that. I am thinking about the new SE because its cheap mostly. For now should I get a Sprint phone or the T-Mobile version and just run it on Sprint? Current coverage here is spotty. If I go to my favorite Taco Bell I get 2 bars of strength but I can't even use the app to order until I drive a block north. I worried about included bands working now and some becoming obsolete in the future.
  2. With Todays announcement that T-Mobile and Sprint are merging, and the announcement of the T-Mobile Sprint Roaming deal that will survive and will last for four years regardless if the merger is completed or not, which is effect immediately as stated in the conference call and the slides made available. So I thought I'd create this to see if anyone has been able to use their Sprint device on T-Mobile roaming yet. And of course if not, once you do, come back here and say you have. Personally I'm not bothering with anything until after the coverage map is updated again, hopefully to reflect the
  3. Seth GoodwinSprint 4G Rollout UpdatesMonday, April 30, 2018 - 5:00 PM PDT After three previous attempts during the past four years, something many thought may never happen actually did. On Sunday April 29, T-Mobile announced they were effectively acquiring Sprint in an all stock deal, combining the third and fourth largest carriers in the U.S. wireless market. Pending regulatory approval, the merger is targeted for closing in the first half of 2019. The Deal The deal using an exchange ratio of 0.10256 Sprint shares for each T-Mobile share valued Sprint at approximately $2
  4. Had not seen a thread for this yet, I see some definite consumer advantages with Sprint's Network combined with TMob and Wi-fi. I have had many Nexus devices and I love my Nexus 6, although it is a bit big. The price is good for the service. ($20 / unl talk/txt, $10/gb) I hope the technical aspects work as they propose. I am a Google Voice Number user and love the "Any device" call capability and use it on my Tablet, Chromebook and phone. I rarely actually answer my Phone at the house. Answer the tablet or Chromebook..... I love Sprint's network, the upgrades they are putting forth
  5. Hi, (To moderators) Please move this thread if you think it fits better in another category. Thanks. So I noticed Sprint recently deployed B25 at the tower near(ish) my house (located in Northern Virginia). I'm picking up B25 intermittently on the top level and outside. Even without B25, I am satisfied with the quality of service in my area. The one thing I wish Sprint could do is stay more up to date with the new BlackBerry phones. I like my Q10 but am bummed they never released the Z10 or Z30. There has been a tweet or two from Mr. Claure hinting there may be a new Sprint-BlackBe
  6. http://gizmodo.com/5...-everybodys-ass Thoughts? From what I've read on this forum, people seem to think that T-Mobile's network is the only one of the four major carriers that will really rival Sprint's post-NV network in terms of technology. However, I have some issues with this article; what it seems to be focusing on is maximum throughput as a standard by which to judge all other carriers. From my point of view, T-Mobile seems to be more metro-focused. Most of my friends who have it live in a major city and get usable signal in many more places than I do when I’m with the
  7. Sprint will guarantee $200 per mobile device trade and up to $350 per line of ETF/Installment payments per line. Shifting towards competing more and more against T-Mobile: http://newsroom.sprint.com/news-releases/sprint-guarantees-t-mobile-customers-200-minimum-trade-in-value-for-their-smartphone-and-up-to-350-per-line-to-cover-switching-costs.htm?view_id=9619 Thoughts?!
  8. With the FCC and Sprint, T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon have agreed to this new unlocking policy. How does this effect sprint phones such as the IPhone. I have heard that Sprint can unlock your phone but you can not take it to other carriers such as Verizon and the IPhone can only be used overseas. (Correct me if I am wrong). I am glad that this has finally happened. But when it comes to Sprint how would this work?
  9. It only was a matter of time. Guess who's at it again.

  11. I have a question, outside of the data issue, Why is it that people refuse to be on sprint? I have seen people talk bad about Sprint more than T-Mobile.
  12. I filmed this morning on my way into office. <iframe width="640" height="360" src="http://youtube.com/watch?v=aI0o6z7RRFI&vq=hd1080" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="1"></iframe>

  14. Technobuffalo had 3 articles testing different phones on T-Mobiles LTE network. Here is a summary of the speed differences: iPhone - Download: 32.32Mbps Upload: 13.57Mbps Note II - Download: 57.99Mbps Upload: 20.16Mbps HTC ONE - Download: 27Mbps Upload: 11.52MBps Why is a big difference between the HTC ONE and the Note II.? I don't know how many test were run, and if these are averages, but it doesn't look good for HTC to be the slowest.
  15. I'm not sure if Sprint leases t-mobile towers, but I was on my way to a gun show, when I saw some workers on this tower. They were on the middle antenna. I was going to talk to them after the show, but they were already gone. I noticed that this is a t-mobile tower. It is right next to the Sprint campus on 119th and Glenwood. Does Sprint lease space on t-mobile towers? Does Sprint lease space on t-mobile towers? There is this out enclosure and also a typical enclosed structure.
  16. So apparently the FCC just issued a ruling that on top of setting standards for boosters it also requires that they be OK'ed by the carriers. http://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2013/02/fcc-orders-2m-people-to-power-down-cell-phone-signal-boosters/ Also allowed more bandwith on 5GHz for WIFI. Any thoughts?

  18. While commuting to work this morning on MetroNorth, the railroad put a copy of their monthly newsletter on all the seats. Interestingly enough, they officially stated that cell service is coming to the Park Avenue tunnel. This tunnel is the main artery between Grand Central and the outdoor world, and all MetroNorth trains travel through it. Interestingly enough, the big carriers have contracted Ericsson to provide the cell coverage throughout the tunnel and public WiFi in the terminal. AT&T, Sprint, T-mobile, and Verizon are all funding the project and it will take up to two years to c

  20. FierceWireless reports that T-Mobile will formally kill off its smartphone subsidies in 2013 and will replace them with a new system where customers “pay an upfront fee for their devices and then pay the balance of the device in affordable monthly installments.” http://bgr.com/2012/12/06/t-mobile-smartphone-subsidies-end/

  22. Now that T-Mobile is close to closing a deal with Metro PCS what does that mean for Sprint. Will they have to purchase U.S Cellular or could they still buy out T-Mobile?
  23. Another thing to slow down T-Mobile, and they're not even deploying LTE for another year. Hope Sprint's NV towers don't have this problem. http://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/article/Phallic-cell-tower-gets-a-makeover-3741742.php Here's a before pic: http://castrovalley.patch.com/articles/poll-hideous-eyesore-or-humerous-cell-phone-tower#photo-8928567
  24. I know Sprint is the only carrier where we have (to my knowledge) information about which vendor is handling what part of their network, but I'm curious as to whether Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile have similarly regionalized their next-gen network deployments. For reference, here's who's building out networks for the Big Four, plus C-Spire and MetroPCS (since we now who they're using to roll out LTE): Verizon - Ericsson, AlcaLu, NSN AT&T - Ericsson, AlcaLu Sprint - Ericsson, AlcaLu, Samsung T-Mobile - Ericsson, NSN MetroPCS - Ericsson, Samsung C-Spire - AlcaLu AlcaLu = Al
  25. Right now I'm tethered (via the official Sprint Mobile Hotspot app; I bought the 2GB data pack last week) to Sprint LTE via my GSIII in central Fort Worth, specifically 1709 E Hattie St (yes, bad part of town...it's a mission trip). I also have LTE on my iPad on Verizon, plus HSPA+ (not sure if it's dual-carrier) on my T-Mobile ZTE Rocket 3.0. Over the next few days, when I find the time, I'll be pounding all three carriers' networks with speed tests, traceroutes, etc. and will post with the results that I find. Results have been encouraging so far...I've been able to hit 27 Mbps d
