I am going to Vegas :)

dragon1562

    Hey everyone on this beautiful forum. I wanted to share some exciting news about a vacation in Vegas. It will be my first time there and I am going for a concert. I was wondering if anyone else has been there and had any pro tips or things I should try while I am there. So you know I am 21 so everything should be game. I also wanted to ask how T-mobile service is in Vegas. Feel free for anyone to share their experience in Sin City.

        Every time I go I leave all my cards at home, and only take $300.  I do this because I know I would gamble my savings away lol

          I have only ever been twice. First was for my wedding 10 years ago and the second time was for Halloween a few years back. As for pro tips, create a fake email address and sign up for the players club at all the casinos you visit for that free slot play Also, don't play roulette with your friend where one person puts $20 on red and the other puts $20 on black cause its gonna hit 00, just ask tmo_phillip haha. If you wanna save money, walk to places instead of taxi, shuttle, or the occasional late night used limousine... as everyone is gonna stick their hand out for a tip. Definitely see a show of some kind. I saw a cirque du soleil show and a stand up show by "The Amazing Jonathan". Last but not least, if someone tries to hand you a business card around 9:00 PM, spoiler alert, those are not business cards.

              haha the business card part had me laughing so hard. I definitely will try and see a show since you brought it up Chris. Also as lame as this is going to sound, I am looking forward to putting the T-mobile network to the test. I plan on sharing alot of my adventures via live stream which should be a fun test of coverage.

              I've never been to Vegas, but I know tmo_lauren has! Maybe she can give you some tips -- I just wanted to say I hope you have an awesome time!

                I've been to Vegas a few times and I'm going again this year. Went to this event call Bodies... The Exibition and it was really great! I also went to the Titanic exhibit so if you're into that sort of thing and it's there, you should totally do it. I went to a couple EDM concerts at the Hakkasan as well. So, any time I've gone Vegas, I've tried something new, so if you're open to trying new things, it's a great place to go. I'm sure you'll have a blast and as for the service, I was able to use it the entire time I was there. This is exciting and I hope you have a great time dragon1562 !

                    Thanks everyone!!! I love hearing from everyone, it really makes  this community that much cooler. Also @tmo_mike_c  I did not know you were a fan of EDM music. I am actually attending EDC while I am there. Its what prompted the trip.

                        Ya know, I didn't even know I was into EDM until the first time I went! Lol! That's what's awesome, you never know what new things you're into until you try them. Just a side note, I took this tour in a cave I've never been to yesterday. I'm just the kind of guy that goes on random adventures and finds cool new stuff to do so this post is right up my alley. Thanks for sharing!

                          Hold up....... did someone say EDM........Well now I am jealous! All of my friends and even my wife make fun of me cause all I ever listen to is EDM. Never been to a legit EDM concert though  Not much of a scene here in New Mexico and I am a homebody and never travel. Be sure to share pics as long as they are family friendly haha.

                           

                          Not sure how you feel about the dubstep side of EDM but be sure to catch Datsik, Excision, and or Kill The Noise.

                              I love dubstep and definently will share photos on this thread. I promise they will be family friendly as I would never want to share a bad photo of myself on the internet. I will also share network stats while at the concert since I am really excited to see how the networks compare to the surge in usage at such a large event. It may not be the Super Bowl but I feel this will be a nice challenge for all carriers.

                               

                              Also my favorite dubstep artist is probably Sickkick, at-least at the moment. I have also been listening to a lot of artists from Soundcloud that have more relaxing, study oriented music.

                                  Ooo, where in Vegas is the festival gonna be?

                                   

                                  I mostly spent time on The Strip and old Vegas, but I had some pretty stellar coverage while I was there. I did run into some weird coverage hiccups in the In and Out on the strip (not the one just off the strip, yeah, I went to both) near the Linq, but that was about it. But when I was in there, it was absolutely no coverage, just zilch. It was weird, maybe they just want you to focus on the burgers... It got a little sketchy when I was in some of the underground areas, but it seemed to be that way across the board for all carriers.

                                   

                                  Is this your first time in Vegas?!

                                      7000 N Las Vegas Blvd

                                      Las Vegas, NV 89115

                                       

                                      The location pasted above is where the concert is. I don't want to post the location of where I will reside though for obvious reasons. Also I have never had In-and-Out since its not on the east coast as far as I am aware.

                                          Oh nice! I assume that can't e too far form the strip just based on the street name.

                                           

                                          And yes, obvious reasons are obvious. And In and Out is good, but definitely only west coast. If you get a chance to go, it's worth your time, but I wouldn't go too far out of the way. Their fries are sort of bad But if you do go, get your burger animal style.

                                           

                                          Also you should try to make your way to the strip! The Bellagio and Wynn have some REALLY awesome Chinese New Year displays with these beautiful flower arrangements, they are really beautiful.
