  1. Huawei Nexus 6P (was [Rumor] Huawei Nexus phone?)

    I tried getting mine replaced and they said it was out of warranty and wouldn't budge. Purchased from Google on launch day.
  2. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    Is the business one tied to your account?
  3. SITE UPGRADE WARNING

    I can help out with this if you want. This type of thing is my expertise, so I may be able to get it up and running fairly quickly. Or at least debug the Tapatalk integration/plugin issues and get it working good enough.
  4. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    I wonder if that applies to magic boxes that have already been "activated"? Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  5. Galaxy Note 8 rumors, specs, thoughts, etc

    I never call them either. I'm guessing they look at the areas you frequent as well. 3 of the 4 lines live at a location that needs an airave, and my line needs the magic box for home. So I suspect they take that into consideration. If you live in a poorly covered area you're more likely to get retention offers. Also, all the lines were out of lease.

  6. Galaxy Note 8 rumors, specs, thoughts, etc

    I got an email saying I was eligible got 50% off on all my lines for a Note 8. I was told it's basically given if Sprint thinks you're a risk for churn, or if you're a long time customer. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    There's the 540 and 545. The 540s were sent out mostly to businesses, stores, and people with the right connections. It has a color LCD screen that's very bright. The 545 is what they're shipping out to customers now. It has a black and white e-ink screen that's not backlit. The screen is the easiest way to tell them apart. The 540 uses a 12V 4.16A power supply. My 545 uses 12V 5A. A power supply that can provide more than 5A is fine, they probably just have multiple suppliers for them. Edit: here is the 540 (powered off) And this is the 545

    I've never seen the AU-WiFi SSID. My guess is it appears when setup fails for some reason so that a technician can connect to it and manually configure. It's likely not designed to provide Internet. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Yes, SC means small cell. The store could have been running a small cell in addition to a MB, or there could be a small cell nearby. The MB will not use the small cell as a relay if it's not fiber backed (ie a relayed site can't be used as a donor for another relay). Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  10. You only can if you have tethering on your plan or you root your phone to have it ignore the tethering provisioning. It's seen the same as hotspot usage. USB tethering causes the phone to basically show up as a USB ethernet device. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  11. Possibly adding multiple mini macros per sector. Still 2xCA per UE, but you get a capacity boost. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  12. SignalCheck Beta Crew Forum

    Yeah there is something weird with that setting. For what it's worth, when I upgraded after you made some kind of change to that preference (I think adding it as an option to the action bar?), it reset that setting to the default. There may be something in whatever code was changed there that could be triggering it. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  13. Google Contacts app

    It's the stock Contacts app on Nexus/Pixel phones. Likely many others as well. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  14. I think calling+ and wifi calling on newer devices are already using that IMS. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  15. I mean in theory they should be able to transition even an active call from VoLTE to calling+, I think. My understanding of calling+ is basically wifi calling, just over LTE. So if VoLTE can handoff to wifi calling, I don't see why the same transition couldn't be used. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
