Sprint just dropped Carrier Update 31.1 for iOS.
Hopefully it fixes the WiFi Calling Issue.

What does the update do?

Many iOS Devices are having WiFi Calling issues since updating to iOS 11.2 and Carrier 31.0

This Update is Carrier 31.1, so it’s likely a fix for this issue.

Anyone running 11.2.5 beta? Voice call continuity was introduced in a beta on iOS, I'm curious if full-time calling plus or VoLTE is going to make the cut in another upcoming beta release. 

Beta 3 just went live recently.

I’ve had faceID for over a month - odd.

Face ID has always worked for Apps still only set up for Touch ID. This update cosmetically “added” Face ID to the app’s log-in process. Not much changing in the consumers view.

Hi all! I'm torn. Should I upgrade to an X or wait for the next model? I need a break from Android, but my inner-nerd is worried at how inferior the radios are to my HTC U11.

The iPhone X doesn’t support HPUE and is not considered a Gigabit LTE Device, unlike your HTC U11.

The next iPhone probably will have support for HPUE.

I personally love every aspect of the X. Face ID. The Notch. The stainless steel band. The new swipe gestures. The amazing camera.

 

It is blazing fast coming from a 6s. The battery performance also has a nice performance bump. (I wouldn’t expect less of 2 batteries!)

 

I’ve been on iPhone since the 4s and I’ve had virtually every model since, bar the 7.

 

This is my favourite iPhone to date and the best phone I’ve ever owned. (I’ve also owned Samsung Galaxy phones and HTC’s)

 

I’m not as critical of carrier performance as the folks on S4GRU are. I’ve got zero complaints.

 

If I had to be super critical...it’s quite heavy. The 6s is light as a feather next to it. Funny how a just a few grams makes such a difference. With all that’s crammed into it, plus the material composition, it’s to be expected.

So I guess the question now is... how long do we expect it will take for another model to be announced? Aren't the 's' usually less than a year from initial release?

If Apple follows its usual pattern for upgrades, expect the new iPhones to arrive this September along with iOS 12 which will be previewed at the WWDC this summer.

Of course, it’s also possible that the iPhone X 2.0 model will be delayed until November in keeping with the last launch.

We may also see a new version of the iPhone SE this year as well. It’s the only iPhone currently sold which doesn’t have support for Carrier Aggregation.

Thanks for all the help. Does my HTC U11 sim work in the X or do I need to stop by a corporate store to get one?

I think I am going to bite the bullet for now. I'm giving into loads of why are you 'green' comments.

Love my X — but either selling it or leaving sprint. The radios in a it are inferior especially if you frequent fringe areas. Mine can’t lock onto LTE. Where as an s8 does.

I highly doubt Apple will incorporate hpue. Especially if it’s Qualcomm related but not sure if it is. Sorry.

I purchased the X and so far am pretty happy with it.  There are a couple of things that could be improved ( but so far so good. 

The biggest reason I purchased the X is that my wife currently uses a 6 and I have a feeling that at some point, hopefully towards the end of 2018, the 6 will have an issue that will require a replacement.  I can offer the X to my wife and purchase an X 2.0 version, hopefully with a larger screen.

So, after 2 months, I’ve picked up a problem and I’m not sure how to solve it.

 

I know there are a lot of knowledge folks on here, especially with regards to radios, cellular stations, cell phones and the relationship between them.

 

To be clear, I’m not sure if the problem is hardware, an iOS bug (I’m on 11.2.6) or my carrier.

 

The nature of the problem is this: I’m on the baby carrier in South Africa and they have a roaming agreement with the second largest carrier. About 2 weeks ago, my phone stopped roaming back to the “home” network and I have to flip the Airplane Mode switch to force it to go back to the home network.

 

I’ve never had this problem before with my carrier nor previous iPhones. The only thing that has changed is the X - although this wasn’t an issue during the first month (unless I failed to notice the pattern because I didn’t run out of data whilst roaming).

 

I’ve reset my network settings followed by all settings when that didn’t work. The only thing I haven’t done is wipe my phone and set it up as a new phone...doubtful if that will work but I’ll do it to rule out all possibilities.

 

What do you guys think?

I hate to say that I am not sure.  It could be an iOS issue.  Have you updated your carrier settings since the iOS update?  Most times in the States when you update iOS, the carrier update is completed at the same time.  Maybe an additional update was issued since the last iOS update.

Come to think of it, I haven’t seen a carrier update in a very long time. I think since the iPhone 4s days.

 

Back then, one would go into the Settings > About menu to trigger a carrier update.

 

Is there another way to force this that I’m not aware of? Get a new SIM card perhaps?

    • 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
    • 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?
    • 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.
