  1. Apple Watch Poor LTE Performance

    I'm not an apple person, but is there a chance it's not latching onto B26? I could see how that could really limit your range. Otherwise, that's not good if its radio is that weak.
  2. Samsung Galaxy S8 & Dual Sim/Duos

    Any chance you are using an older or slower SD card to save your recorded video? If you are, try recording video to device storage and see if that makes a difference.
  3. Samsung Galaxy S8 & Dual Sim/Duos

    I usually just leave mine on all the time. It does seem to break up every once and a while, especially during the evening hours when network usage is typically high, so if I'm making an important call or expecting an important call (especially during evening hours), I usually just turn it off. I think this will be solved once Sprint implements true VoLTE, where voice calls get priority. Until then, it's nice, but needs some improvement to be as good as 1x calling. (Of course, what I said above is when connected to LTE, not Wifi.) It's definitely a good first step and it sure is nice to be able to look stuff up online while on a phone call. I've taken advantage of that numerous times.
  4. Calling Plus (VoLTE "Lite")

    I have not seen any issues with battery life since turning on calling plus. I'm not saying it's not possible that you could be having problems, but also consider that it could be something else as well.
  5. Galaxy tab e

    I just updated my Tab E today to the newest build. It's been since late last year that it got an update, so at least they still are updating the security of it. Did you notice anything else different? It was over 300MB, so I would think that would include something other than security, but I haven't noticed anything else different.
  6. Calling Plus (VoLTE "Lite")

    It's easy to turn on and off depending on the area you're in. It's a simple toggle on the pull down.
  7. Samsung Galaxy S8 & Dual Sim/Duos

    For those having "random" reboots, there is an auto restart feature that reboots the phone every 7 days. Make sure that is off if you don't want it on. It's in the settings. Sent from my Galaxy S8+ using Tapatalk
  8. Samsung Galaxy S8 & Dual Sim/Duos

    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. Sent from my Galaxy S8+ using Tapatalk
  9. That's a mini macro setup. It appears 2xCA is running on it. The limitation is that it won't be able or do 3xCA like the 8T8R setup. Sent from my Galaxy S8+ using Tapatalk
  10. Looks like I found my first B25 CA. This is outside of Edinburg, VA. It's two 5x5 carriers. I would be curious to know why they haven't enabled a 10x10 carrier, since they have spectrum to do that in this area, but hey, I'll take it. Sent from my Galaxy S8+ using Tapatalk
  11. This is in stock TouchWiz. It seems all other apps flip to a gray color except for SCP. Sent from my Galaxy S8+ using Tapatalk
  12. Mike, This may only effect Samsung phones, but I've noticed that when the notification bar is white, the SCP notification in the bar washes out. Is there any chance you could program the notification to switch to gray (or some other dark color) when the notification bar is white? The easiest way to see this is to open the phone app. It changes the top notification bar to white and you can no longer see the SCP signal level. Most other apps seem to switch their icon to gray so you can still see the icons up top, such as Google Play Music. If this has been brought up before, I apologize. I don't remember seeing it. Thanks again for your hard work.
  13. Calling Plus (VoLTE "Lite")

    I just did a quick call on my new S8+ with my wife and I was impressed. It didn't seem like there was any additional delay over 1x, and the call was clear. She was on an S7 connected to the cellular network (not wifi calling). I do have good LTE coverage at my house, so I'll have to try it when in some weaker areas to see how it works. Note: I'm posting this from my S7 edge because I don't have Tapatalk set up yet on my S8+. Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
  14. Calling Plus (VoLTE "Lite")

    From what was posted before, Sprint does not prioritize voice traffic, at least not yet. Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
  15. Could this be from trading another carrier to make one 10x10 channel instead of two 5x5 channels? Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
