iPad Air Price $630
I don't see the update that they are offering the iPad Air for $499, still comes out to $630 standalone. Or is the offer limited to only existing customers?
Verizon supports sim voice/LTE, I seriously doubt it supports sim voice/EVDO. That being said, unless there is a magical way of implementing TDD and FDD radios and antenna pathing, sim voice/data will go away on CDMA carriers till voLTE is available.
How exactly did Sprint screw up? :roll: You do know that the Note 3 only does sim voice/LTE, not voice/3G, so it's inherent in the device design. Nothing Sprint "did" or "didn't do". You'll find the same experience on Verizon devices as well.
One of the drawbacks of CDMA is the inability to do sim voice/data. The only reason some B25 LTE devices were able to do it was due to discrete 1x and LTE antenna paths. With newer devices, that is no longer possible. Not sure why the trolls are up in arms, welcome to 1996 and birth of CDMA.
Even 20mbps is a god-send for folks who live in areas which lack competition. I would gladly take 20mbps wireless over 1.5mbps DSL.
Re: Not smart
Or fixed wireless (WiMAX)? This is a great way to use some of the excess spectrum and offer customers a true "broadband" replacement.
Finally catching up...
Sounds like Sprint's Network Vision plan and T-Mobile's Network Modernization plan...good luck!
Re: 8 months later
If you were rooted, you would have ICS on the Epic Touch months ago.
I was just going off my experience...I work for Sprint, and know people who use iDen devices, and I hear a difference between iDen and CDMA (Sprint). :) All good though, I do agree with you on that, AT&T coverage here in NYC is...
The whole dispatched-based thing works but try making a voice call on it. Sounds like a tin can on a string. The network was never intended to be used as a voice call, and don't even get me started on the data...WiDen? LOL...4 channels used to get a blazing 100kbit/s :) I think the future/evolution of PTT will be the feature adds, the Push-to-X features, and not necessarily the PTT.
Yep, Nextmail works on any Sprint phone...take a look: http://nextmail.org/
Re: When will Microsoft get it together?
Personally I think Microsoft is taking their time with the OS, and trying not to go the Android route with 10000 different devices in 100000 different flavors. Having it all standardized is a giant step forward, and will only get better as time goes on. I agree with the whole lack of 4G statement, but in my experience, it's great when you have it, but not mission critical. I rather take a solid OS which is new and different, than ...
Re: It Is Good To Be A Sprint/Clearwire Customer.
Yep, Sprint customers have been able to data roam on Verizon in many markets for a while, the difference being it's 2G roaming, and not 3G. With the Alltel roaming agreement, we get 3G roaming, unless I'm mistaken...either way, WIN 8)
