    Just to chime in, I find the Magic Box very useful in my home because we have home internet that goes out at least once a week, and therefore need a backup plan for those times when the internet is out. It gives me reliable internet access when the home ISP goes down. Plus, when connected to a UPS, I also have usable internet for news and emergency updates in the event of a power outage, which happens often during storms. I go from being on 1 bar of B26 to 4 bars of B41, with the box being connected to a B41 site that I otherwise don't have access to in or around my home. Also a small benefit is having full signal all the time without my device constantly switching between weak B26 and 3G. The battery life savings really add up. Plus being able to make VoLTE phone calls from my home when VoLTE is rolled out will be nice too. All of these are things that WiFi cannot do. Sure, a lot of these problems have solutions or workarounds, all of which require more time, effort and, more importantly, money, than a box that you simply connect to power and never touch again. It almost works like... magic? -Anthony

  7. I'm curious to hear if anyone has called 911 while using their Sprint phone while roaming. I know you can call 911 even when there are no reported signal bars on the phone display, if the phone's technology supports using another carrier. But what about using Verizon's 700 Mhz VoLTE and T-Mobile's 700 VoLTE bands, the latest iPhones support these voice/bands, but Sprint doesn't yet. Does that mean calling 911 will never pick up a VoLTE signal on these bands?
  8. Are you using the real VoLTE or the Voip VoLTE Beta on an Android phone? VoLTE isn't being enabled for all users for a few months, this is for markets away from the North/South borders, later for those areas.

    Ocala has more b41 than Gainesville.

  12. Yes, that's nothing new. They moved the LTE over to the Sprint PLMN, but left the SID alone. Additional downside--no way to ID 1X 800. - Trip

    Unlocked doesn't have anything to do with it. It's fully compatible with Sprints network. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    I don’t think service is that bad in Gainesville. I was just wondering if her service isn’t as good because it’s the unlocked model. That’s all.

    If service is bad then it is what it is. She can always go back to At&t.

    True. And the opposite is also amazing. People who say, "I have a problem, therefore it is ubiquitous." Robert

    You don't. I don't. Others do. It's also plug and play. People love that. Covering a house with WiFi is cheapish. But still not free. And these are meant for more than just houses. A business blocks access to WiFi or has consent pages to protect themselves and their network. If they are a Sprint customer or have a lot of Sprint users, a MB is a free way to cover your building/office area. Every place I have ever worked blocks or has guest captive portal on WiFi. Yet still have a DAS. It's isn't a way to abuse the network, it's a way to waste Sprints financial resources (people who don't need it but want to use it like me).
  19. Hummmn, they are still using the old nTelos SID on 1x.
  20. Don't know. I was barreling down the highway at the time I took the picture, and I don't usually do speed tests anyway. But considering the available speed used to be zero, I'm going to say it's decent, sure. On my way home today, I'm going to take a long route to check on some more sites I don't usually go by. Expect the Premiere map to fill in some after I get home. (Also, I'm amused that with yesterday's update to the Sprint coverage map, the Red House tower that's on the air is now missing from the map along with the Hat Creek tower, while the Sugar Hill site that had no antennas two weeks ago is still present.) - Trip

    Because you simply have to plug it in to a power outlet near a window.

    Except for a soft hand off to thw macro network. It can't do that, but other than that, there exactly the same.

    Because public WiFi has an ongoing maintance cost, plus the cost to set it up and properly isolate it from your network. The magic box is just easier. You aren't responsible for it. The magic box (via LTE) also has vastly superior QoS so that one person won't bog it down. My parents house is one place where a magic box works amazingly. Their only internet option is 3 mbps DSL. B26 only on phones, and that's upstairs only. The magic box latches on to b25 and provides 15-30 Mbps consistently. They actually use it now with a Sprint mobile broadband plan. For some people, the magic box is a better solution than an Airave or wifi calling (which won't work well on 3 mbps DSL if someone is using the internet). For businesses, it's a $0 cost, easy deployment to help customers. And they aren't responsible for what people do on it. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    Because if you're not offering public WiFi, why would you go out of your way to set up a Magic Box??

    I really don't see why it is that you think that if you don't have public wifi then you wouldn't use an MB. The MagicBox is a repeater for Sprint's network requiring essential zero exposure or expenditure for the retail provider beyond electricity. It is also zero maintenance or setup. It's a highly superior solution in my view.

    Anyone having issues with the messages app receiving late or not sending messages? Received a few pics and see the attachment downloading but app closes unexpectedly. This happens with Sprint to Sprint phones (Pixel to iPhone) as well with AT&T numbers

    Speaking of WiFi calling being inconsistent. Do you ever have issues when receiving a call? Sometimes when receiving calls with WiFi calling enabled and WiFi is on but not connected to a network. The phone calls are choppy and I sound like a chipmunk to people on the other side of the call.
