Even though it’s an Apple case. You should still try using the phone with the case off. Apple isn’t perfect they could have made a mistake. I haven’t seen any reports of defective power buttons or displays not powering off.

 

I'll talk with my mother about this again later, see if there are any updates and if she still has the phone or not. I haven't seen her yet today, and the T-Mobile representative was going to allow her to send the phone in through one of their local stores, so I'll need to wait until later. If she hasn't sent the phone back in yet though, I'll try it and see. Also, I haven't received an email back yet from the Legere email, which usually is a great way at getting a response from them, but they may have called my mother instead, as I included her email. It would be nice if by later someone there helped figure out this issue in some way.

Try holding down the power button and volume up at the same time. If that doesn’t work try the power button and volume down.
or go into the setting app/general/ shut down

The X is having some issues apparently:

First gen hardware bugs. Not a good sign.
Apple needs less Animoji and more hardware testing.


Definitely a first gen product. That’s why I went with the 8+ until the 2018 iPhone X is released.

Early adopter here.  I am one week into having the X in my hand, and it now feels odd to use my ipad and ipad mini with the home button.  

Using the gestures with the X took a few days of getting used to, but I'm glad I went this direction.

Not sure it's entirely due to the X -- I recall the 7 plus had the same issue last year --- I assume its an actual MFG issue with the driver/speaker.  The ones Apple and Samsung seem to use are very loud.  

 

Not giving Apple a free pass here -- but they are fixing it.  VS saying yeah it's normal and we will address with software

Good point. We’ll see what happens here.

The 8 is definitely louder than the 7. I remember reading it was 25% louder here:

Looks like we could be getting Intel modems for a 5G iPhone?

I wonder if we’ll have Qualcomm or Intel modems next year.

Interesting.  It reads as Intel will be ready, at the earliest, 2019.  It makes me wonder about Apple's ability to incorporate the new chipset by 2019 since they engineer and spec their phones 12 to 24 months out.  I would say it would be the fall of 2020 before a 5G iPhone is available.

Anyone here ever have issues with their Sprint WiFi Calling?

I have a phone when I go into settings enable WiFi calling everything goes through as if it worked. Then the “Sprint WiFi” never shows at the top. I looked at add ons on my Sprint account. “WiFi calling” and “WiFi calling for iCloud devices” is enabled.

The past phone was an iPhone 6S+.  It is nice but the smaller size will take longer for me to adjust to.

Agreed — I’ve come to like the smaller chassis but enjoy the big screen.

Had this happen to 2 of our iPhones early this morning:

https://www.theverge.com/2017/12/2/16727112/iphone-crash-bug-december-2nd-2017

https://www.engadget.com/2017/12/02/ios-december-2nd-reset-bug/

Installing the just released iOS 11.2 Update fixed it.

The devices essentially crash looped through the entire update download process on both devices. Once I was actually able to install the update, it stopped happening.

Jeez Apple. Stop with the stupid Animoji so you can focus more resources on preventing stuff like this from happening in the future.

I’m not seeing no calling plus after the update.

Luckily for me I didn’t have crashing issues updating my X this morning.

    • I started working on the Raspberry Pi 3b Plus tonight with an Sierra Wireless em7565. This one has all those cool features that I was describing up top. Not bad for ~39 bucks. I was waiting for a few open source firmwares to get through the compilebot6k's toobs; this one is built now. Some use modem manager or openWRT for the router side. This LTE radio is band(s) 2/26/41 capable on the Sprint side. Band 25 did not make the cut, but was on previous Sierra builds. This is a tester radio so there is a slight chance it will appear down the road. It has just about every other LTE band.  

      This is an example of the debug screen. GMO is nearest so we only get 26 from a far site. No 41 in our zip yet. 
      The best part is I can plug an MC7455(that would be Modem#2) or another EM7565 in and it can hop over to that or I can direct load balancing. I just wanted to show the EM7565 authenticated below. Another shot of my terrible reception. Here it is out of the armor.

      So, we have a stable software image. I will get it built and add some GPS features, then test on band 41 in Myrtle where present. We have one site w 8t8r gear to test 3xCA on, so it might be a minute. I am in 2xCA MM areas through the week. I will see how it likes the Magic box too. 

      I should have a true GB ethernet router to massacre in the next couple of weeks with software images already set to go. I can embed the radio beyond a USB adapter. It still requires m.2>mPCIe but that is one less failure point and better throughput. This was a great breakthrough in affordable and small solutions for us.  I have to go to bed and then work now.

      Have a great week everyone.
    • Thank you so much for bringing light to this! I would have never known about it had you not posted it! You've saved me a lot of money and lowered my bill moving forward! It wasn't an easy process, but well worth it. Unlocking the phones was surprisingly easy. But the small hiccup came with my final bill. When I received it, I thought I was screwed when I saw that the ETF was included. I almost paid for it too, but the frugal in me decided to call Sprint (couldn't hurt, right?). After an hour on the phone with a US supervisor, my account was credited for the full amount of the ETFs. I walked away Scot-free!! Thanks a bunch OP! I'm trying Verizon's throttled unlimited data plan. Excellent reliability in the city, but there are certain key spots where I need my phone that aren't great. I don't know if it's the throttling or the network.
    • I see more mass upgrades by TMO on 600mhz -- it seems they did an amazing and fast roll out. If I recall folks here thougt TMO wouldn't be able to see much strides for a year plus.

      Reason I bring it up is TMO can't have much more free cash than Sprint. Yet can operate fast and lean.

      Positive note Sprint has rocked it's upgrades this past year...
