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

    I'm thinking they've closed off residential requests for now until they fill some of the orders. I know the link is around here somewhere, Google Sprint magic box, or try sprint.com/magicbox Currently, last I heard, it was business only...
  2. I think it's a very exciting time to be a Sprint customer. What would be better is if a merger is done and those TMO roaming bands turn into native. It should be rather easy and one of the first things upon a merger happening... Turn on band 12 and band 4 for us Sprint customers... Same for TMO. Turn on band 25,26 and 41 for them... U would think that happens within 6 months of the merger. Either way, I look forward to seeing what happens in the near future with Alabama. Seeing some sites go from GMO to full LTE... Then I'd like to see what happens to my Sprint stick with a merger.
  3. Galaxy Note 8 rumors, specs, thoughts, etc

    I think it'll get better...I don't know why it doesn't perform well. I don't remember how the note 5 did when it first released... But I think once it's past it's initial launch they might tweak the radio.
  4. Galaxy Note 8 rumors, specs, thoughts, etc

    I'd be happy with a better radio firmware. I still see the places where my note 5 was great on magic box reception and the note 8 doesn't pick up at all... Hopefully we get something soon.

    Mine is SM-N950U.
  6. I don't have a bill from ²ⁿⁿ⅞ to compare. I had the Samsung Airave... That was the first one...
  7. I wish they would've given me two on my account. I had to get with a cousin and use his number in order to get one for business location.
  8. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    The only way, so far, that I have found to keep my Note 8 from jumping on B17 AT&T is turn off LTE Roaming in ##DATA#... And even then, I'm bouncing back to EV-DO VZW roaming -- I really think they should do some work on the radio and improve the reception.
  9. It's given a line on an account. I know this because I already had a magic box, on my residential account, and I requested a magic box for business location. The lady from MB support emailed me and said "we need an account to link this business magic box to"...so I gave her my number, which already had a MB linked... She emailed me back and said that I couldn't use my account, because I already have a MB linked to my account, and needed to use a different account to link it to for the business MB. If it wasn't linked to an account (with a phone number, as shown below) then accounts would allow as many as you want to request within reason. I couldn't request one for home and one for business using the same account number..
  10. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    Since band 17 is a roaming band... It's either on or off. I change the band priority a few days ago. Either have to disable LTE roaming or leave it on. I know Sprint doesn't have a roaming partner for LTE around here.... The closest I know of is cspire in Mississippi...
  11. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    So far, nothing I've done has made the note 8, mine or my wife, c connect better than it does right now. In places where the note 5 was fine and had great signal, the note 8 drops to att b17. I wish I could turn off b17..

    Fastest way is go into the Samsung Galaxy app store... Download the shop Samsung app. Sign into it and go to promotions. You'll see it listed. That's the fastest
  13. Galaxy Note 8 rumors, specs, thoughts, etc

    By the way...I was told newer devices have an MSL of zeros. Both of my note 8 phones have the MSL of 000000
  14. Galaxy Note 8 rumors, specs, thoughts, etc

    Also, can anyone list those wild LTE bands and which carriers are using them? I'm curious if they are in the carrier association and if we will see those working in areas anytime soon...
  15. Galaxy Note 8 rumors, specs, thoughts, etc

    Hopefully the radio gets some work... In places where I have -110 from my magic box on Galaxy tab A, the note 8 is dropping to AT&T band 17 roaming. I realize B41 and tablet has more room.. But the note 5 also had decent magic box B41 reception in the same spot. Both mine and wife note 8 won't hang on to that B41 in places where note 5 held it rather well.
