in the Article: Sprint Announces WeGo Phone for Kids forum

People around here really need to stop it. I've had Sprint for over 12 years and have had barely any issues with reception. My phone works pretty much anywhere I travel. I have also used the other big three carriers, and haven't seen much of a difference in network quality. Some providers simply work better or worst depending on the area.

Really a non-issue to me and more 90% of all subs.

in the Article: Sprint's Spark Phones Don't Support Simultaneous Voice/Data forum

Just like lots of people don't use 30-40gbs a month on their cellular devices, many don't require simultaneous voice and data. And many don't really ever think of doing both. Only the enthusiast and maybe the business sector do, but then again they don;t make up the majority of the subs base either. And given that all other single channel LTE devices can do both voice and data on Sprint accept the iphone 5/5S this is really a non-issue. ...

Must be a slow day for Phonesccop. This has been known since September of last year, but report it in April. Honestly it's not a big deal, I rarely if ever do both at the same time, and whom really actually has long conversations on phones nowadays anyway?. This is a non-issue. I'd much rather have faster data, than to talk and surf at the same time.

I can't see why folks are making such a big deal about this. just either get a cheap sim from the country you're in. Or get a free Google voice number and use it to make wifi calls. No need to even envolve a carrier into the picture. Or iPhone users could just use facetime audio to make calls. There's lots of free wifi calling options, that I can't even phathom why people are crying over sprint not allowing ...

in the Article: Sprint Weighing 2014 Bid for T-Mobile forum

According to sensorly.com network maps, Sprint's LTE network is much larger than T-mobile's, just making a point. I have both services and my LTE works in more locations than T-Mobile. Although T-Mobile does have HSPA+ to fall back on when LTE is not available. But latency is way too high on HSPA+ and in many, many areas T-Mobile even falls back to EDGE which is crazy in 2013/2014. And at the same time Sprint has enhanced many of their ...

When Sprint entered into a similar deal to lease their towers the trolls claimed it as the end of the company. Yet AT&T does the same and you can hear the damn crickets lol.

With virtually every phone released in the last 2 years on Spirnt and Verizon having GSM roaming capabilities, why bother switching? you could just purchase a local prepaid sim card wherever you travel to and use your phone for much cheaper than any plan can offer.

The amazon App Store is one easy quick sideloaded app which Amazon guides you in the process. Once it's installed you download and install apps like you normally would. And the amazon App Store success comes more from their own kindle fire line of devices. Face it Blackberry is dead. With their OS 10 method you'd have to continually find the APK files online and download to a folder and then use a file explorer to manually install these ...

Exactly the average consumer knows nothing about side loading an android .apk. So with that said the argument than it run android apps perfectly is moot. The average consumer wants to go to a slick looking App Store and just click download and run their favorite apps right away. Since Black Berry World can't provide that at the moment, people lose interest in the platform. They took way too long to bring OS 10 and new devices to market. ...

We're pretty much there already. I can barely see the difference in pixel density of my Nexus 2012 and 2013. Even though it has a higher resolution display and higher pixel density, I'm hard pressed to see a night and day difference. At normal viewing distanced of 12 I inches or so all looks good to me. Apple started this pixel density craze and now every other manufactorer has taken the ball and ran with it. After 323 pixel ...

What part of choice aren't folks grasping? Some people refuse to spend $299.99 for a new phone and this gives them a cheaper option while maintaining a large screen. This phone isn't markteted at the high end specs consumer. So no one really cares if people whom want the latest and greatest don't buy it. That's what the Note 3 will be for.

I have had Sprint for 12 years, and while as of late 3G speeds have been ****e, LTE speeds are great. I get a consistent 20 mbps + download all day in the Bronx, NY. And the CDMA call network works great in most places I've been outside of NYC. I drove to Florida last months and had coverage at least 90% of the time with Sprint. Or one of it's roaming partners. So a 1000 mile drive and ...

Yes you're right NYC is a very populated area and important. That's why they've had LTE here months. You can access it anytime you want. They just haven't made any announcements, because it was in the testing phase. They have many markets, large cities too, where they have LTE, but haven't officially announced it. They are waiting until they 55-60% coverage in a city before they claim it as launched. I have LTE in my neighborhood in NYC and ...

You do realize that just because sprint announced LTE in these two boros doesn't mean you can't already use it or it wasn't already available. I've been able to access Sprint lTE since November of 2012 in The Bronx. In fact just about 85% or more of NYC can access Sprint LTE. They've just been having LTE in the beta test state for months now. Also Sprint is completely overhauling their network and installing completely new hardware and towers. ...

So I guess the people @ Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson, and Samsung are all idiots hunh? Sprint contracted all three of these companies to supply equipment, and they've done so at a slower pace than expected. So why shouldn't they place the blame where it belongs? If you choose a contractor with a good track record re-do you bathroom and they take longer than they said they would to do the job or mess up your bathroom. Would you not blame ...

Well they picked pretty reputable companies including Samsung, So if I paid someone millions of dollars to supply network equipment and they don't you're damned right I'd blame them for slow network buildout.

Yeah I know sprint 3G service has been abysmal as of lately. But when you can pick up LTE service it's wonderful . I speed test at 50ms ping 27mbps dl and 9mbps ul. It feels as if you're surfing on home Wi-Fi.

Actually Sprint has already begun turning on LTE in parts of NYC enycertifiedg .I'm using it to respond to you right now on my iPhone 5. LTE is up in running in the North Central and central areas of the bronx, and along i-95 from the harlem river to the bronx zoo. There's other small pockets of LTE in the bronx as well. North west Manhattan from 110th-155th Along Broadway and the surrounding areas have LTE service, as well ...

Funny thing is these people want to leave because they're being offered a better service lol. I have sprint service and it works great for me, and where it doesn't I have free roaming on Verizon. so why should I switch to them when I essentially get the same service for less ?. People just need to accept the fact that iDEN is dead and has been so for years and im glad, I hated hearing that chirping sound ...

Yeah just wait a little while longer if you want to use a Fresh rom based on ICS. Or you can head over to xda forums and get one that's available now. I'm just waiting on a kernel that can be over clocked. But even with the stock htc kernel the phone's performance is really really good. I just want it to be a tad bit better. When I was running ginger bread I had the phone over clocked ...

And also too add of course a newer device is going to crush its predecessor spec wise in everyway so that's a pretty irrelevant statement. And I've never used the 3d function at all. It hurts my eyes and that's not the reason I bought the phone in the first place. And I hardly ever use a cellphone camera for any serious photo taking so I could care less about it's performance.

First I root almost every android phone I get. And I never said the new Evo wasn't a superior phone. Just stated that the Evo 3d is not the horrible device you made it out to be. And was explaining the benefits that ICS brings to the Evo 3d. And I also said it made me contempt with the phone for the time being and that I will only upgrade when LTe is available in my city. Your judging ...

Well If you haven't taken S-Off then you may be pushed the update, but the update won't go through until you accept it. However you maybe nagged constantly that there is an update available. But upgrading to an official will always break root, so I wouldn't even bother with it. My suggestion would be to get your phone to have S-Off and switch to a ICS ROM. The performance difference between gingerbread and ICS on the EVO 3D is ...

For the guy who says the EVO 3D is all around terrible, what planet are you on? While it may have been as big as a hit as the original Evo, it's in every single way a much better phone performance and spec wise. I have rooted my EVO 3D and upgraded to a ICS rom, and let me tell you it makes the phone almost a new device. With the GPU rendering now active throughout the entire UI, ...

Every time sprint implements a good idea that ATT or Verizon would never think of, they're being desperate. People have been saying for years " two years from now sprint will be dead" well I've heard that chant for over 12 years now and they're still here. They have improved service vastly, their customer service is phenomenal now, and I can't even remember the last time I've gotten a dropped call.The nextel failure will be all but a memory ...
