    "When you grow up you tend to get told the world is the way it is and you're life is just to live your life inside the world.

    Try not to bash into the walls too much. Try to have a nice family, have fun, save a little money.

    That's a very limited life.

    Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact: Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you and you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use.

    Once you learn that, you'll never be the same again."
    -Steve Jobs

  1. Made my donation. Have always wanted to win one of these, and now that I'm working, I can finally donate what I would like. Good luck to all who enter! (As an aside and as an Apple nerd, your picture in the post is slightly incorrect. The picture labeled "iPhone 8" is actually the picture of the iPhone X, not the 8. ) -Anthony
  2. iOS11 - now available.

    Not as of yet, no. -Anthony
  3. iOS11 - now available.

    I've been on iOS 11 since June and the Golden Master since last Tuesday... -Anthony
  4. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    We're an all iPhone household and all four of ours have had no issues connecting to our Magic Box. Two phones running iOS 11 beta and two phones on the most recent version of iOS 10. Glad I'm not having this issue like others are. -Anthony

    Welp, that was close! -Anthony
  6. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    Excellent news! As of me waking up this afternoon, my Magic Box has officially initialized! It's connected to Band 41 with an RSRP of -110, and a CINR of 10.4. Where I used to get .83 Mbps down and .44 Mbps up on a -115 to -120 Band 26 signal, my house is now coated in a beautiful, clean Band 41 signal capable of at least 23.10 Mbps down and 1.83 Mbps up! Over a 2000% increase! Great! I'm guessing whatever issue the Charlotte market was having, it is possibly resolved! Everyone who was having issues in the Charlotte market, go and check your MB and see if it's working now. -Anthony EDIT: Also forgot to mention that it appears to be broadcasting on UARFCN 39874, diifferent than Mr. Nuke's 39758 that his is broadcasting.

    I've had mine for 8 days and it hasn't connected once and haven't heard anything from Sprint about returning it yet. -Anthony
  8. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    You are in the same boat as Bill and I. Hopefully we can inform Sprint about this issue and get us some Magic Box love! -Anthony
  9. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    Any way of contacting Sprint and letting them know about this in a specific market/area? My guess would be MB support, but just curious if you have any insight on this. -Anthony
  10. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    I just checked and mine is doing the same thing. I've been having the time-out at 20% issue since I received my MB a week ago. It is also broadcasting this AU-WiFi SSID. -Anthony
  11. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    Parked in a parking lot one mile from a Sprint site with line of sight, with my Magic Box plugged into my inverter in my car (for power other than the battery), and with my phone sitting on 3-4 bars of band 25 (wouldn't latch onto band 41 for whatever reason, and can't tell what RSRP because Apple takes even more Field Test features away in iOS 11). Sat there for about 20 minutes, and got the exact same error as I was getting at home. "Initialization Timed Out". After bill875's experiment, and now mine, I'm beginning to think he is on to something when he says that he thinks this is an issue with our market, rather than our MB location/signal strength. It would be interesting to see if there is any insight on this problem. -Anthony
  12. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    Since he is having the same issue as me, no, it's not giving an error code. It just says that the initialization process "timed out" and asks whether we want to restart the process or shut down the device. -Anthony
  13. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    I had the exact same thing happen. The gentleman emailed me on Tuesday saying it should be here in 6-7 days and the MB got here this afternoon. I've found that if I don't touch it, the MB will just restart the initialization process at 20% when it fails, so I'm just gonna let it sit forever until it works. Lol. Hopefully it will activate at some point. -Anthony
  14. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    I've been trying to keep up with this thread as much as possible, and don't remember seeing it mentioned, but what should I do when I'm going through the initialization process and I get: "Error. Initialization process timed out. Press TRY AGAIN at new location or SHUTDOWN the device."? Does this mean the location doesn't work and I need to move it? I have gotten this error three times now after getting to 20% and sitting there for about 20 minutes or so. Have restarted the device and tried TRY AGAIN a couple of times. -Anthony
