Sprint service in lakewood
« on: June 26, 2017, 10:57:02 PM »
Hi,

I'm considering a change from verizon to sprint due to their year of free service, but I don't know if it's reliable in Lakewood at this time, can anyone advise on this?

Same on the north side. LTE is still slow here in most neighborhoods, though. In NYC it's very fast.

its a disaster, you'll regret switching big time

theres numerous dead zones all around lakewood, even in areas where the signal shows LTE it can be slower than 3G

in short i wouldn't switch even if they paid me

I had them up until a few months ago and was very happy with the service.. there were some basements that voice was a bit choppy but mostly not, had 4G LTE almost everywhere

What type of phone did/do you have - I have an Iphone 7, and I'm wondering if the different results are due to different phones?

I have a HTC U11. It's a marked improvement over the LG G4 and G5 I had before. Those dropped calls like no one's business. The htc U11 holds on to LTE way better than those.

iPhone. Some parts of town better than others. South Clifton/Cedarbridge/Arlington area decent. West gate pretty poor. Yeshiva area not great. For some reason the last week or so data service has been atrocious just about all over Lakewood. Not sure if it's a sprint issue or a TAG/Livigent issue...

By when do I have to switch to sprint ? Do I need to apply for it online by the 30th or actually set it up with the sim ? Where can I find details on this deal ?

Details on the forum?

It says in the fine print you have to activate the Sim prior to Port in, not sure what that means. They will ship it overnight if ordered by 2pm. So you should still have time to do it regardless.

Does a regular Sprint plan work in Canada? Called and  they said no. But I remember it working in the past just with big charges.

They had 2 intl plans, one is free 2G, Txt, 20 calls. They had another plan which gave for Canada 1GB plus free calls but they discontinued that in April
