If so that is surprising to me... RF test boxes can be expensive depending on
the tests they are configured to perform.
I have never seen them outside of a lab or trade show.
Yep, corporate Sprint store/service. I called Sprint day after I got the phone, that's what they told me. I asked if they were kidding, the rep said absolutely not. I recall the diagnostic printout slightly, that was 2011, but it showed results for all my radios as I recall.
I'd assume that they must have something specialized to lower cost of the test gear.
The stuff in my lab is very expensive, so I understand your point.
By the way, their organization understands the term "RF box test," so I associated that with some standard test setup rather than box as in instrument.
