Hello mrcminnesota, ##33284# is ##DEBUG# to get to your engineering menu, the MSL is your Master Subsidy lock code, it is also referred to as your Service Programming Code (SPC). Technical support may provide this code provided your account is in good standing, you are the account holder, and you have provided your pin number although for determining which chipset your phone has you may have good results by looking though google for information related to the phone's Exynos processor. So far no announcements have been made that we plan on upgrading to Rev B.
JayWill7211, the QSC6085 is not capable of anything above Rev A., however it will work on a rev B. network, and will experience improvements in data speed & call viability because of significant increases in capacity. Apart from that, we have made no announcements that we plan to upgrade our network to Rev B. it will be announced in newsroom.sprint.com first if it is in the works.
Don't feel bad... When they upgrade to Rev. B with same pitiful backhaul, I'll sell you my used Evo 4G that'll run Rev. B for cheap while I go to Verizon to use a network that actually runs at decent speeds. It's in great shape-- not a scratch-- I have babied it since I got it in June 2010-- oh, and the 4G radio has never been used on it-- and since I've only averaged about 85 kbps on 3G this past year and a half, the processor hasn't worked too hard either...
...When they upgrade to Rev. B with same pitiful backhaul...
No plans for a network upgrade to EV-DO Rev. B have been announced by Sprint.
And directly related to your statement about backhaul... Sprint's IP/MPLS division is a Tier 1 Network and Internet Backbone provider.
Your backhaul information still doesn't help the Sprint customers in 90+% of the country that suffer sub-100 kbps speeds consistently on Sprint's network (refer to the majority of the posts in the network & coverage forum). And, Sprint probably won't implement Rev. B... it would be too smart a move and make too much sense for the company that is still stupid enough to use primitive 1970's T1 lines for data backhaul rather than OC-3's like modern carriers...
Official Sprint Answer:
Sprint is committed to delivering the highest quality network experience. Our Network Vision plan will improve your network experience, but it does not include any EVDO Rev B launch. Sprint has evaluated EVDO Rev B and chosen to go directly to 4G connections. Since we are not launching EVDO Rev B, none of our handsets supports EVDO Rev B.
Thank you for your interest in our Network and Chipset Technologies!
Wingland just put everyone in place. Well people, that settles it!
Look, after using this phone for a some time now I have to say this - I don't give a **** about the slow speed. This phone is great and the positives just crush the negatives.
To the EVO selling guy InThe225 - Don't hate just because you don't have a GS2. Enjoy paying out the a$$ for Verizon and the worst customer service, enjoy being ripped off on every bill and of course enjoy the data caps!
