I agree! From the faux VoLTE that I get on my iPhone after dropping off WiFi, I’m excited for the VoLTE. Sprint definitely has ALOT on their plate this year. I really want them to meet or exceed their plans.

Yeah they have a lot. I’m praying they execute flawlessly. Crazy to think 5G is next year.

I hope this is a sign of the progress they are going to make by the fall in deployment and densification because as the network stands now in my area VoLTE would not be a good thing.

You can always turn it off on your device if your area isn't ready yet. It's desperately needed in some markets though (which have the density to support it), as 1x is too congested as a result of thinning. It will be nice to be able to use my phone for calls again when I'm not on an Airave (dedicated 1x carrier), since currently I can't understand what people are saying most of the time because of such heavy compression.

Marcelo’s take on Verizon’s Go90 possibly going away:

Shots fired.

I wonder what the latest with TIDAL is. Unless I missed it, I don’t it remember it being mentioned on the recent Earnings Call. Sprint apparently put $200 Million into it for a 33% stake. (https://techcrunch.com/2017/01/23/sprint-takes-33-stake-in-tidal-plans-to-offer-it-to-its-45m-users/)

TIDAL is mentioned on the website here: http://www.sprint.com/network

Sprint TV never seems to come up either:

https://www.sprint.com/landings/tvguide/

Although there are Apps for iOS/Android, it seems pretty neglected... I wonder if that service is being deprecated.

HD voice with WiFi Calling has been a thing for a while now.

I've had HD voice when using wifi calling to talk to other Sprint users for at least a couple of months now. I just figured that it was one of those little things that Sprint enabled for everybody with little fanfare. It's a bit inconsistent for me though. Most times it works, other times it doesn't even when calling the same number.

I have noticed wifi calling to calling plus in HD and a marked improvement in calling plus stability (could just be placebo).

Someone is uninformed, I've had HD Calls (both regular and on Calling Plus) since last fall.

I happened to come across this nugget. Based on the before images and looking at the completed sites map on here and the planned towers, it looks like Sprints coverage will look like the before pics.

The before pic shows coverage in North Dakota. What happened there? The map is only 3G. I would like to see LTE

This map is from 2011. I would guess these 3G areas will be LTE

That was a map detailing the loss of a roaming partner years ago. Really no reason to bring it up now.

Off topic I guess, but do you remember who the roaming partner was? Just curious.

I haven't heard much on the Tidal situation. What is Sprint TV? Is it similar to Go90? I remember back around 2005-2006-ish there were some tv packages Sprint had I didn't understand exactly what they were for, and if I'm recalling correctly Sprint's internet packages were a bit of a mess back then. I was in a few stores alot during that time talking with store staff who let me use their info helping people on HowardForums get into the SERO program. Yet, even the staff weren't aware fully of the differences between the internet plans back then, and as I was looking for service ahead of its time and needed to know exactly what was being offered to avoid the overage mess Verizon caused me back then, I didn't end up switching to Sprint. However, I still supported them by helping with the SERO referrals for awhile.
