Sprint 5G Service To Go Live By 2019

Adnan Farooqui December 21, 2017


The White House recently declared the rollout of nationwide 5G wireless service a national security priority. It’s not like it had to convince the country’s major carriers to pay attention to this technology as they’ve already been working on it. Verizon previously confirmed that its 5G network will go live in five cities next month. Sprint has now said that it’s going to offer 5G service and devices in the United States by 2019.

Sprint has said that its priority is mobile 5G and that it’s working with Qualcomm and parent company SoftBank to develop technologies that will aid in wide-scale 5G deployment. It’s planning to provide commercial 5G services and compatible devices in late 2019.

It’s possibly going to be a slow rollout and it’s too early to predict which cities will be the first to receive Sprint’s 5G network. It goes without saying that it’s going to take a considerable amount of time before any major carrier can launch a nationwide 5G network.

Verizon will get the ball rolling on its 5G efforts starting next year. It will be interesting to see how the market responds to the network and how quickly Verizon is able to scale up the network to additional cities across the United States.

Sprint Offering $100 In Pokecoins For Customers Who Switch Over

Tyler Lee December 10, 2017

For those who are looking for a new carrier and who are also gamers of Pokemon GO, you might be interested to learn that Sprint has recently announced a new promotion for customers. For customers who are willing to swap over to Sprint, it seems that the carrier will be giving those customers $100 worth in Pokecoins, which is the in-game currency used in Pokemon GO.

According to Sprint, “To ring in the holidays and toast the release of 50 more Pokémon from the Hoenn region, Sprint is giving the gift of $100 in PokéCoins to anyone who signs up for Sprint Unlimited. ’Tis the season to switch, Trainers! This offer kicks off today, and the math makes sense – $100 equals 14,500 PokéCoins, which gets a Trainer everything they need to maximize their game play and fill up their Pokédex. The $100 in PokéCoins can be exchanged for up to 3,600 Poké Balls, 480 Max Revives, 145 Premium Raid Passes or 96 Incubators.”

However for those who are more interested in the phone side of things, Sprint is also offering customers who switch over four lines of unlimited data, talk, and text for $25 a month, and get a fifth line for free. The plan also includes Hulu and a six-month trial to Tidal. There is no mention as to when the offer will expire, but maybe don’t take your time lest you find out that it isn’t available anymore when you try to sign up.

The OnePlus 5T Won’t Work On Sprint Or Verizon

Tyler Lee November 21, 2017

If the recently announced OnePlus 5T sounds like something you would be interested in getting, the phone will be available for purchase in the US come 21st of November. However if you are planning on using it with Sprint or Verizon, you will be disappointed to learn that the handset will not play nice with either carrier.

This is according to the OnePlus 5T’s carrier compatibility chart in which as you can see in the screenshot above, has marked both Sprint and Verizon as not being compatible with the phone. OnePlus notes, “Even if a device supports some or all of the required frequencies for this carrier, it will not be able to connect unless the device is approved for this network.”

It is unclear why there was no support built into the phone for Sprint or Verizon’s network, but that’s something to take into consideration if you still wish to buy it, as it means that you’ll probably have to find a different carrier for it. We’re not sure if OnePlus has plans to eventually release a model that will play nicely with Sprint or Verizon, but until then we guess potential OnePlus 5T customers will have to seek other carriers to use the phone on, like AT&T, T-Mobile, or US Cellular, just to name a few.

Sprint Launches Calling PLUS For Galaxy Note 8

Adnan Farooqui November 19, 2017


Sprint offers its subscribers a feature called Calling PLUS. That’s what Sprint calls its Voice-over-LTE and Wi-Fi calling services combined. There aren’t a lot of devices on the carrier’s network that support for this feature but Sprint has been rolled it out gradually for more devices. Sprint has now released Calling PLUS for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. It’s included in the latest firmware update that also brings the October security patch for the handset.

Calling PLUS provides users with all of the capabilities of Wi-Fi Calling and also enables them to make and receive calls over Sprint’s LTE network. The feature lets users browse the internet and use other apps that rely on data services even when they’re on a call.

There are only a few Android devices that support Calling PLUS at this point in time. The Galaxy Note 8 now happens to be one of them.

Sprint has released build number N950USQU2BQJB for the Galaxy Note 8 on its network. The update also brings the latest security patches from Google that are included in the security maintenance release for the month of October.

The update also brings new versions of a few Samsung apps. It fixes an error with Samsung DeX as well.

Sprint now rolling out this firmware update over-the-air and it should have gone live for Galaxy Note 8 owners on its network by now.

Galaxy S8 Active Launched On T-Mobile And Sprint

Adnan Farooqui November 19, 2017


It was first reported a couple of months back that AT&T might finally lose its exclusivity over Samsung’s “Active” handsets. Ever since the first was launched several years ago, the handsets have only been available from AT&T in the United States. Samsung itself confirmed recently that the Galaxy S8 Active will soon be available from T-Mobile and Sprint. Both carriers have now started selling the handset to their customers.

T-Mobile has started selling the Galaxy S8 Active online. The carrier is charging $820 for the handset at full retail. Customers can also purchase it for $100 down and $30 per month for 24 months on T-Mobile’s installment plan.

Sprint is offering the handset for half off, provided that customers switch over from another carrier. In that case, it’s going to sell them the Galaxy S8 Active for $17.71 per month for 18 months on its Flex lease program.

The specifications of this handset remain the same with only a couple of changes. It has a flat Infinity Display instead of a curved one. The handset also features a larger 4,000mAh battery. It’s more durable as well.

Sprint is selling the Galaxy S8 Active both online and in its stores. T-Mobile is only selling it online for now but it will begin offline sales from November 22nd.
