Fun fact. If you call with calling plus and the other person is also using calling plus then the HD voice symbol comes on.

I had issues with call quality in West Texas. I could hear the other person but they couldn't hear me most of the time. When I was driving back to Houston calls got much better with minor issues with tower changes. They are crap again at my house, but LTE signal strength at my house is why I requested a magic box. I think what some of us are witnessing is why Sprint is slowly moving towards VoLTE.

so because my lte signal is crap is why other's can't hear me at my house. Right now I'm on band 26 at -111

I would imagine that as long as snr is decent I should work. B41 has increased with this radio. I can get it down stairs now and keep it when I couldn't before.

If b26 is still overloaded in your area this would lead to call issues. At my house in Houston the only signal that makes it into most of it is B26 and it is still a weak signal and still overloaded. Sprint says that as little as 1 Mbps is needed to maintain a call but this doesn't mean it will be a great quality call. Outside my house I switch over to b41 3xCA and have no issues.

Is $16.66 per month a good price for the S8 and $20.83 for the S8+? Both are on sale at Best Buy for those prices for 24 months. It works out to $400 and $500 respectively. Is that about the best price they've been, or is that the going rate?

That's what I did a couple weeks ago. I also get a $10/ month loyalty credit on top of that.

Is that due to being on a legacy plan?

OK. I gave up that plan to go to the newer plan. It was a good bit cheaper and I like having the 10GB Hotspot.

Is that a subsidized plan? If not, I would assume it wouldn't qualify.

The HD icon only shows up if a calling plus phone calls another calling plus phone.

It's actually a bug that will be fixed in the next release. Sprint opened a ticket with Samsung on it

My S8+ just had a bunch of updates come through from the Galaxy App Store. Updates included: TouchWiz, phone dialer, edge screen, and the clock. There were other updates too, I just don't use those apps so I didn't update them.

Getting tired of this phone. Freezes up, lags, shuts off and just freaking annoyed with it. Should of stuck it out with my note 5 till note 8. Sorry but wanted to throw my opinion about the phone out there. Remember just my opinion. If you guys love it that's awesome I don't need to hear your side not worth it. My fault for not being patient.

So instead of wondering if you have a bad phone you want to rant about it. I have none of the issues you are having. If my phone ever starts to lag I reboot it. If you can return it or swap it I would look into those options.

Granted I do think my Note 5 was a more fluid experience but I love this phone, the battery life simply amazes me.

Same here I use package disabler pro. Without the bloat it runs much nicer.

      I'm here looking for answers to a simple question. Where is this mystery Sprint signal coming from? For the past few weeks I've received a signal on multiple Sprint devices, two Sprint devices with roaming turned off, and two Virgin Mobile phones and Virgin Mobile phones can't roam, the other rate plans might be able but I'm talk about Virgin Mobile devices from before they introduced all those other plans. What I'm making clear is these devices have to be picking up a Sprint signal, plus I've downloaded the SignalCheck Pro app which has indicated two different signals 1XRTT and 1X800. 
       
      The signal only last for about 8 hours each morning and begins coming in and out towards the end of each morning. I try making a call and it fails, and it doesn't get any data at all. I try each device and they all do the same thing they have a signal and very strong signal with no data, and voice doesn't go threw, I haven't tried sending a text figured no data, no voice then there must be no text.
       
      I read about some "projects"  that Sprint has going on Project Ocean and Project Cedar. Since Project Ocean is suppose to be taking place in Missouri and I live so close to the Iowa, Missouri line, I figured if there is a tower going up maybe it is possible I'm getting a signal from it, in the early stages. I really don't know what is going on, if Sprint is launching service, putting up new towers and that signal finally comes, and stays, and works. I'll be back full time on the Sprint ban wagon. Unfortunately, I live in an area not served by (according to experience and coverage map) Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint. Not even the two Iowa carriers i Wireless or Chat Mobility serve my area, go 10, 15 or 20 miles in any direction your good, here, wireless dead zone, no choice of carriers. And if Sprint puts a tower here if I finally get an answer and learn that signal will soon come and stay and work I'll finally have a choice.
       
      So if anyone has any ideas, has experienced this in other parts of the country or has any idea what could be going on please say. Any information is better than not knowing, and together maybe this will be answered.

      Try to make this as short and simple as possible. I have three devices; 2 of which are on the same plan and the third on a separate plan.
       
      The third device is my tab 4 which is picking up SprintB41 site 310120 just great. I get 3 bars downstairs.
       
      My other two devices; Galaxy Note 4 & Galaxy Note Edge for some reason will not pick up this tower. I have tried PRL updates, Profile updates, restarted the phones and all I can get them to connect to is a ClearwireB41 site.
       
      More background info...all devices have same Sim card as when purchased, tablet stays off 3/4 of the day and my phones are on when I wake up and turn them off at night. No matter where I go inside or out my phones won't connect to the Sprint site.
       
      Anybody have any ideas before I call Sprint trying to figure something out? I'm not sure how long the tablet has been able to connect to this site so I'm not sure what to think of it besides agitated that the tablet of all things is connecting. I posted two photos; one of the tablet connected to the Sprint site; second of the Clear wire site my phones connect to.
       
      Thanks in advance.

      The next front in the prepaid wars: Ting is adding support for GSM/WCDMA/3GPP devices (apparently as a MVNO of T-Mobile, directly or indirectly, if the coverage map is to be believed) and will allow you to have GSM and CDMA devices on the same account, apparently going a step further than the Straight Talk empire. LTE data is apparently included, but not depicted on the maps.
       
      http://www.androidcentral.com/sprint-mvno-ting-support-gsm-starting-february-2015
       
      Now a real Ting coup would be to allow access to both the Sprint and T-Mobile networks on a single line without a SIM swap if you have a device that works on both (like Nexus 5/6 etc.). Technically devices without a firmware lockout of domestic competitor networks, like the Nexus 5 and 6 and the new devices coming in a few months, should be able to do it.

      Will 1900 be reframed for LTE only? Or is 1x Advanced not worth it at such a high frequency?
