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.

    • 1x in these areas sometimes make simple phone calls fail. I wish we had the mobile selection menu on iOS that T-Mobile allows so I could force over to US cellular in some locations.   
    • You need B26 for VOLTE both for coverage and capacity. B41 as it is configured right now is great for cruising the net and downloading. Not great for symmetric traffic like voice. Well, when I am talking to my wife, it is highly asymmetric but that's neither here nor there😂.
    • I was on I-68 Sunday and did not notice any new Sprint Coverage.  Some 1x was there, no Sprint LTE.  The 1X was well below the standards we would expect and I really did not see any improvement yet. However, as I write this, I am thinking that the US Cellular LTE might have been showing on SCP and I may not have realized that Sprint 1x was available in previously uncovered locations.
    • KDDI in Japan still has their CDMA network. Verizon is tired of paying Qualcomm royalties on top of paying Billions of dollars for Qualcomm equipment.
    • I was in Cumberland, Md and Deep Creek , Md on Sunday.  Only had Sprint 1x and the coverage on that was not good.  However, I did have LTE coverage on US Cellular. It was OK, not fantastic, but ok.  Not everywhere but it was where you needed it.  Was on US Cellular EVDO and 1x at times too.   It was great that Sprint allows use of US Cellular facilities while they upgrade their network. Allegany and Garrett counties were ignored by Sprint for many many years. Now that they have turned that area over to Shentel we are going to see the service greatly improved.  Sprint finally did the right thing. If they could not provide service in the area themselves, turn it over to somebody that can and will. Shentel WILL fix it and soon. I did note that when driving into the area from Hagerstown, my phone resisted connecting to US Cellular LTE until I started trying to figure out why. I think it might have been the Airplane mode on/off action I took that seemed to wake up US Cellular LTE.  Once it connected one time, then I was good all day.
