  1. Verizon shrinking coverage in Maine.

    At least with Sprint, any tethering is a violation of terms of service, at least for the older plans. Hotspots are allowed by plan or for additional revenue. These all have smaller limits. Sprint got Clearwire basically because they could not make their model for wireless internet service be profitable.
  2. Verizon shrinking coverage in Maine.

    Were these users tethered or using their phone as a hotspot ( ie using internet from their phone elsewhere?
  3. Verizon shrinking coverage in Maine.

    The sub article seems to be the most accurate: https://www.rvmobileinternet.com/verizon-terminating-certain-rural-customers-for-excessive-usage/ Basically claims that these users are exceeding network limits of 22GB per month / 10GB hotspot per month which Verizon was unable to manage. Accurate?
  4. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    Please post any new Magic Box market GCIs (the first three characters). Here is 0EE [credit BluesRulez]:
  5. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    Magic Boxes can draw in b41 through MIMO and then hold on to it because they are a constant connection. From a cold start your phone will likely pickup that site GCI first before switching over to the MB (use SCP to see it). Do the legwork yourself to find it (circle each nearby site to get three b41 GCI) or become a premier member and check the Minnesota premier thread.
  6. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    On Thursday the CFO stated at a conference that the Magic Box will go into mass production mode and they expect to have "hundreds of thousands" of them.
  7. SITE UPGRADE WARNING

    The nice aspects of tapatalk are the ability to easily post photos without limits and notifications (but this has gotten fuzzy lately). The worst aspect is constant bugs.
  8. The CFO of Sprint said on Thursday they will be making hundreds of thousands of Magic Boxes. That would take at least 25 hex primary GCI, so I would extend it to 0EF and then we will have to see what ranges they use after that. He noted that it costs them about the same as a smartphone and they may report MagicBox tonnage with the next quarterly report.
  9. Wow, over 8200 units made since they have hit 0EE. Sent from my LG-LS997 using Tapatalk
  10. SignalCheck Beta Crew Forum

    Not always. LTE could be from a former Clear site, 1xRTT site could be witbout LTE, or LTE and 1xRTT patterns could be different/range. Please use regular SCP thread for this type of question next time. Sent from my LG-LS997 using Tapatalk
  11. Galaxy Note 8 rumors, specs, thoughts, etc

    Does calling plus work as well? Sent from my LG-LS980 using Tapatalk
  12. LG V30

    No problem with v20. It remains to be seen with v30. Much higher odds than Note 8 since Galaxy 8 does not. Sent from my LG-LS997 using Tapatalk
  13. LG V30

    Unless it is a great deal, my next phone will need to have 4CA support (or an existing phone breaks). Must also support SCP showing EARFCNs unrooted. Sent from my LG-LS980 using Tapatalk
  14. Galaxy Note 8 rumors, specs, thoughts, etc

    Looking for Note 8 SCP reports to see if EARFCN works. Sent from my LG-LS980 using Tapatalk
  15. I woyld just send them. Then Mike can look at them, which is often late at night. Otherwise much time will be wasted. Sent from my LG-LS997 using Tapatalk
  16. I occasionally have issues with turning off logging or changing site notes when not intended. If their was a confirmation prompt or a special setting to prevent this that would be great. I know it occurs with others as well. Thanks
  17. LG V20: LG's Next V10? (LG-LS997)

    It bumps firmware to ZV8, July 1 2017 Android security patch level. Other aspects seem the same. SCP earfcn API still works, same with starting a call using WiFi calling and dropping the WiFi link and still being able to use data while in the call. It had no release notes or comments. Calling plus not yet supported.
  18. LG V20: LG's Next V10? (LG-LS997)

    Got a new system update. Installing it now
  19. Cheesy ESMR/LTE base station tracker

    I am concerned that this will reduce the apps main feature, it's ability to track. I don't mind one (preferably the best signal or average signal) per location, but I do like to have all locations.
  20. Cheesy ESMR/LTE base station tracker

    Latest does work on Android 5.0.2 (rooted) with freedompop, although I had to delete the data folder else it never made it displaying the map. I do get the earfcn.
  21. Calling Plus (VoLTE "Lite")

    There is no doubt that much work remains for VoLTE. For those who are desperate for data access with voice beyond Wi-Fi, Sprint has done a favor by releasing Calling Plus. This gives Sprint data to improve the network for VoLTE. Sent from my LG-LS997 using Tapatalk
  22. I have seen nTelos airaves in Jackson Ohio, so I would expect they will have them.
  23. Sprint does alter the transfer thresholds so I would occasionally check on it or complain with the Sprint app. I personally set my priorities to b41 then b25 the b26. Of course at many sites/locations the network will choose but it helps at others. Sent from my LG-LS997 using Tapatalk
