  1. The iPhone X looks cool but I'm not a fan of the notch. I'm looking forward to the AR possibilities. Here's what Apple's website says about cellular bands for the Sprint model: FDD-LTE (Bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 13, 17, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 28, 29, 30, 66) TD-LTE (Bands 34, 38, 39, 40, 41) TD-SCDMA 1900 (F), 2000 (A) CDMA EV-DO Rev. A (800, 1900, 2100 MHz) UMTS/HSPA+/DC-HSDPA (850, 900, 1700/2100, 1900, 2100 MHz) GSM/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)

    Network Mapping

    Does the iOS Sensorly do multiple speed tests? The Map Drive looks like it only does signal coverage. I like that RootMetrics can do 21 tests in a row for when driving.

    XFinity Mobile

    Not sure. They don’t have Internet there.

    XFinity Mobile

    I’m strongly considering Xfinity Mobile when my Sprint lease ends in March. Verizon seems to be the only carrier with good performance at our family farm.
  5. Probably don't need this to be a stickied thread anymore.

    Yeah that's the feature I miss the most from my T-Mobile days.

    I was really hoping I could finally use data while on the phone. Nope.

    iPhone 7 / 7 Plus Speed Tests

    Considering how few new topics happen on S4GRU anyway, a thread specifically for speedtests should be fine. It should be fine in any Android subforum too. I get the desire to keep speedtests out of other discussion threads, but isolated to their own thread should be ok.

    iPhone 7/7 Plus User's Thread

    Just finished setting up my new iPhone 7 Black 128 GB. Going to take some time to get used to the new Home button. Since I'm on a lease, I liked that I could buy Apple Care through Sprint and save a trip to the retail Apple Store to buy it. That was a nice change from last time.

    WiFi Calling Support For iOS Coming Soon?

    Anyone use YouMail that can test to see if that works now with WiFi calling?

    Will there be a S4GRU wall blog on the technology in the new devices?

    iPhone 7/7 Plus Rumor Thread

    I ordered an iPhone 7 today, but the order status page still shows nothing. Has it been updated for anyone else? I just want to make sure it went through ok.
  16. I have an iPhone 6 with Sprint, and plan on upgrading to the iPhone 7 when it comes out. If my wife uses my old iPhone but is on T-Mobile, will she miss out on any LTE bands from that network? Would I have any issues with getting Sprint to unlock my old iPhone?

    Repurposing an iPhone 6 to T-Mobile

    The lease comes up in August with a buyout option. So when I buy that out I should be able to get it unlocked at the same time, right?

    iPhone 7/7 Plus Rumor Thread

    If they drop the headphone port, they better make the thing waterproof, especially now that there's rumors that the home button will use force touch.

    WWDC 2016

    I use iMessage a lot, and am looking forward to the improvements. I like the delivery/received confirmations, being able to see when the other person is typing, etc. (similar to Blackberry) I also like that I can within the app send my current location or share it for a specified period of time with another iOS user. Handy when meeting up with friends so you don't have to keep asking where they're at. Pictures send immediately (and I get confirmation) instead of dealing with the whims of MMS, which sucks on Sprint. iMessage's most important feature for me is being able to create and reply to messages from any of my devices. Send a message from my iPhone or iPad ,and then when I get to my desk get replies on my iMac. I'm looking forward to the weblink previews, larger emoji, etc.

    iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus User Thread

    It works great for me in Houston, but the coverage outside the city isn't great yet. They haven't finished those areas yet, though.

    iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus User Thread

    I don't come by here as often as I used to because the site doesn't get map updates like they used to.

    FYI, the latest update to RootMetrics allows background collection. I won't be able to try that feature out until the weekend.

    iOS 9

    As an iPad Air 2 user, I love the new multitasking abilities. I just need more apps to take advantage of it. It's ridiculous that MS Office apps have full support and Apple iWork apps do not.
