Hey All (Used to be Nextel18)
Just wanted to say hey to everyone.
I went to AT&T for a few years and now I’m at T-Mobile USA.

Sprint Direct Connect + Airave
When we have our Airave turned on, the signal bars for CDMA voice definitely improve, but with the Airave on, Direct Connect basically goes out the window.
With Airave on, DC almost immediately shuts off on both of our phones (Kyocera Torques), it takes power-cycling of the phones to get them to re-establish DC, then after several seconds both phones shut off DC again. Since the DC is important to us, we have ended up just shutting the Airave off, which is bad for signal strength, but at least the DC works most of the time with the Airave off. On the data side, our DSL WiFi router handles the data part of i...
AT&T continues its march on SDC: NextMail-like apps
Today AT&T announced "pdvConnect" with a suite of features & capabilities that sound just like Nextel's NextMail offerings. I'm guessing since AT&T calls it "pdvConnect" that they have also contracted with Pacific Data Vision ("PDV") to provide these same services for AT&T users.

Upping the Heat on iDEN subs: $20/line/mo
Also, if the remaining Nextel & PowerSource lines are not switched over BEFORE the June 30 service cutoff, those customers will lose their Nextel and/or PowerSource phone numbers for good.
I could live with the original $10/line/mo, but $20 per line has finally done the trick for me. I'll have to stop by the local Sprint & ATT stores and do a serious cmparison.
Sprint's JD Power ranking drops, ATT now # 2
Thanks in advance.
1. Clearwire shareholders
2. Dish Networks
Too bad Sprint decided to let all that spectrum go to Clearwire in the first place. Looks like it will really cost Sprint to get it back now, if they even can.

Salary info for Management Positions
What is a starting Salary for these positions. Commission, bonus plans, etc?
I am currently looking in the Chicago, Las Vegas and San Diego areas.
In addition to the Salary what does the process look like with interviewing, time frames and what not.
How is working for the company, benefits relocation expenses.
Any information would be very helpful. Thank you in advance. (I also understand privacy in this matter as well.)
Data speeds effected by interference ?
Wondering if anyone has some information or knowledge on this question. Can you data speeds on your smartphone be effected by inference such as CB radios, and other mobile devices in large numbers.
I work at a site with about 2500 employees during the day, speeds are a hit and miss in the day. At night they are fast and consistent. I know capacity has a lot to do with that as well, but thought about all the people who also have mobile devices running on other carriers. Not to mention, wifi throughout the site in many building and floors.
Thank you for anyone's input.
Kudos to Sprint on the Sonim XP Strike
At last, a glimmer of hope that Sprint is taking more seriously the Nextel vanguard. Good news indeed.
Sprint's "Loyalty Rewards" for Nextel customers
I received a letter dated Nov. 19, 2012 stating that effective Jan. 1, 2013, as a Nextel iDEN customer I will be PENALIZED an ADDITIONAL $10/line/month unless I switch to Sprint CDMA service before Jan 1st.
Rather than just let the Nextel iDEN customers go right up to the June 2013 cutoff, because iDEN's performance warrants it in many areas, and rather than offering greater incentives to switch to Sprint CDMA, they are actually PENALIZING Nextel and PowerSource customers in an attempt to get them to switch before June.
I am so gratified that Sprint has chosen to honor my 10+ years of on-time, postpaid loyalty as a Nextel customer by penalizing me to the tune of ...
Looking for some opinions from the new LTE users
Aside from these two phones does anyone know of any new smart phones coming out between now and the end of the year that may be worth waiting for?
Sprint Dura XT
1. The new PTT has way better battery life. Two full days of use compared to just one. This was how my old i90 performed.
2. Better coverage due to roaming. I now can use my DC anywhere I use the regular phone. The V950 was confined to 3G areas and my i90 to network only coverage. It takes three seconds to connect when in a 1X area.
3. This version of Sprint DC has the familiar roger beep at the end of a transmission rather than the annoying bonk the first generation had.
4. Sprint's horrible one click menu is no mo...
Service restoration following Sandy
Can anyone explain how it is that Sprint's wireless operations fared so badly in NYC compared to the competition in the wake of tropical storm Sandy? Sprint keeps touting how great their state-of-the-art equipment is, how it is smaller and more flexible and uses so much less power than the competition's older equipment, as a result of the "Network Vision" thing, yet Sprint's wireless network did by far the worst in the NYC area, and is still the farthest behind in resto...
