I've had no random reboots on my phone since 4.2.1 was released. Obviously it is something more than just a problem in 4.2.1 if you are having constant reboots. There could be something that triggers it related to 4.2.1...but it definitely does not affect everyone.
Sprint has expanded LTE coverage a ton in the last year and there are far more than a few people that get it now. With it covering nearly all of my city and most of the other places I cover and with speeds of 10-20Mbps, I am happy with Sprint for the first time in a few years. As far as faster speeds on other networks...great. But what exactly can you do on a phone that you need 50-60Mbps for? Sprint is still cheaper for me than any other carrier as well.
The only way I can see you can get the price you say you got is if you didn't get phone through t-mobile as part of your plan. Otherwise the cheapest everything plan is $90 a month before tax.
You're correct, I did bring my phone with me....bought an N4 (16GB) from Google. The one big difference with those speeds on Tmo verses those LTE speeds is battery life. The faster the connection, the shorter time the phone needs to use the network for internet thus increasing the battery life. Not to mention, once they flip their LTE switch they will be pushing people towards it which will give me even more room on HSPA+ and increasing the already minimum 14 hours of battery on heavy use I get now. Honestly, with the speeds I'm getting now I don't see a reason to even get an LTE capable device. Quick question though, which device are you using and does it support VoLTE?
I've had problems with random reboots, especially when i'm on important phone calls. This is the only problem I've been experiencing with the update.
I agree with the empty promises and service being somewhat of a joke. If LTE was not rolled out in Boston, I would already have a Nexus 4. I'm out of contract now and have been for about 2 years. Plus I found my Nexus on craigslist and talked the person down to $100 cash.
I've been with Sprint for the good part of 10 years and feel your pain. Not being able to stream pandora on 3g, for example, is a joke. I don't know how people in bad reception areas pay for Sprint.
My only gripe with TMo or ATT are their data casp. Last month I used about 10gb of data.
I've had nothing but problems with my Nexus. 😞 I've already replaced it, but Sprint won't do a replacement of another type of phone except 2 that look downgraded from what the Nexus is supposed to be. I can't send texts to AT&T customers nor StraightTalk customers. Very frustrated.
