    I've had the MB for awhile now and up till today I haven't really seen many improvements except for increased battery life on my phone. Typically would see 8-25Mbps down whether connected to the MB or not. Randomly did a speed test and found speeds have increased quite dramatically with my highest being 60Mbps down / 4.5 up with a 50 ping I restarted the MB to see whether my phone would grab any new towers but I just connected to b25 10x10 and had a speed test of 5 Mbps down. (edit: managed to connect to band 41 nearby and got similar speed improvements, so I guess something in my surrounding area has changed) Not sure whats changed but I'm impressed. I'm curious, has anyone stumbled upon a MB connection in the wild?. Also, I've had many calls with voLTE/callingplus with the hidden VoLTE setting enabled on the galaxy S8 while connected to the MB and haven't noticed any delays or quality issues while speaking...although I haven't been looking for it either.

    Yea the workaround is still working for me over here.

    There is a way to apparently add calling plus to the unlocked S8. LTE Test is under com.test.LTEfunctionality and Enhanced LTE Services is under Mobile on my device. credit: https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-s8/help/sprint-calling-plus-update-unlocked-s8-t3730053

    Update just now started downloading after I clicked the manual update button. Give it a shot.

    It seems the update is not being pushed to Sprint users on the unlocked model. I hope that changes soon. I really do not want to need to flash back to Sprint fw.

    you'll need to flash the Sprint firmware.

    Hey just wondering how often or under what circumstances (driving, home, etc.) are people using Calling Plus?

    You can use the standard 'call your phone number' to get your voicemail. I know Google voice / Youmail is a popular option for some but I've heard some people might have trouble using it if they enable wifi calling? Not sure. Alternatively, you can always flash the Sprint firmware onto the unlocked version. Just be prepared there is a ton of bloatware.

    Mine doesn't seem to charge. Every time I unplug the thing from power to try to test different area's it asks me to plug it back in for 30 minutes.

    I hope calling plus is also included to those on the unlocked version. I don't really want to bother to take the time to flash.

    are you trying to say that CA only works while using the Sprint firmware? If so I guess that's a pretty big reason to flash the Sprint firmware.

    Hey all, I have an unlocked galaxy s8+. Any benefit to flashing the Sprint firmware besides potentially quicker updates? Thanks.
  13. You are forgetting Black Friday sales. The LG Nexus 5X was $80 off on November 27th, 2015. http://www.androidpolice.com/2015/11/27/updated-killer-black-friday-deal-nexus-5x-80-off-amazon-bh-google-store-299349/

    Sprint to end 2 Year Contracts

    Companies may sometimes have secret menu's or friends and family type sales. This was really no different. See Sprint's print from 2006 below where they opened SERO to general public: http://a676.g.akamaitech.net/f/676/773/60m/images.delivery.net/cm50content/1529/09008101806249a7/FriendsAndFamily.jpg Russ was also the Vice President of Strategy for Sprint and in his FAQ states that he was able to provide referrals through his blog. An email for users to use was also posted on the front page of the Sprint community website around the same time IIRC.
