  1. My thoughts? FLIP THE DAMN SWITCH SPRINT! edit: tested just a minute ago, and this is not live in Atlanta, GA
  2. Yes indeed. I've gotten 60+ out of mine. Maybe a bit odd, but my speeds seem to increase the farther I get away from the MB. If I am right in front of it, the speeds are slower than if I am on a different floor or different room.
  3. sprint network 2018 predictions

    I've also been seeing some random abnormally higher upload speeds on certain towers. (referencing your first screenshot.)
  4. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    FFS. For absolutely no apparent reason, as of this evening, my phone seems fat and happy on the magic box again. 🤷‍♂️ Infuriating that it seems to be back and forth like that. For a product that should just work, it sure seems to have some occasional hiccups. If the end-game is to be able to use VoLTE through the Magic Box, they have some work to do. Just checked software versions and they are the same as before.
  5. Network Vision/LTE - Chicago Market

    Indeed - I have seen 120's on my local home tower on b41, but I have never seen over that. I nearly crapped my pants when i saw it in the 190's!
  6. Network Vision/LTE - Chicago Market

    I continue to be impressed. Ohare gate H10 at 8:15 Monday morning.
  7. Network Vision/LTE - Chicago Market

    You need to contact Sprint and report the issue - and ask that same question.
  8. Network Vision/LTE - Atlanta/Athens Market

    I'm in ATL often now for work (work in midtown) and the network has been really pretty solid - even in hotels. My only gripe are the underground MARTA stations. Really wish Sprint could at least do something with those.
  9. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    Update - Sometime over the past day or two, my magic box updated to: SW Ver: ... which appears to be back to the version where the home screen displays LTE, Sprint, and GPS Icons in the top right hand corner. Interestingly, over the past day or two, my phone seems to prefer the Magic Box again. Woohoo!!
  10. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    I went weeks and weeks without a problem of my phone connecting to the mb and now for the past week or so, it has refused to connect. Wifes phone (same model as mine... 256gb iPhone 10), on the other hand, connects reliably. Grrrrrr

    Confused. Here is what mine shows. :dunno: SW Ver:
  12. Apple Watch Poor LTE Performance

    Side note - switching on Airplane Mode on your phone will not disable bluetooth connections such as headphones or Apple Watches any longer. As someone who generally flies 4 segments a week, this was a welcome change. If you truly want to ensure your phone disconnects from your paired apple watch, it is necessary to go to settings -> Bluetooth, then move the slider there. For coverage discussion, this might be a great opportunity to get a Magic Box. With the Magic Box turned off... while in my basement, my Apple Watch would lose LTE - but after the Magic Box, it gets 3-4 'dots' of service.
  13. iPhone 8, 8+, X announced

    I was REALLY hoping and thinking that Calling Plus would be enabled with 11.2. Damn. 👎
  14. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    I'll have go up stairs and check it out. . I havent looked at the thing since I got the iPhone X - it connects great each time.
  15. Calling Plus (VoLTE "Lite")

    Requirement for the HTC U11 is to dunk the phone in milk first.
