  1. If I remember correctly Verizon has phones hold LTE much longer than it would if the phone were just active with data, etc. when a phone is on a VoLTE call, because even at the weakest of signals data can still be transmitted, the data rate is just so low it's not good for anything other than the very low data rates used by VoLTE. I imagine Sprint will do the same with their LTE network.

    I'm surprised actually, those small cells don't look bad at all.
  3. Recent (12/2017) Japan roaming experience

    Ping times are high because your data is rerouted through Sprint's servers in the US. T-Mobile does the same thing, even if you high speed data you end up with a high ping because it goes through the US. That's in advantage in places like China that have censorship because it means you can access sites that are normally blocked. Thomas
  4. Hello all! So I have a Le Max 2 - it's a decent phone other than the fingerprint reader, at least once you put a custom ROM on it, but it has pretty could custom ROM support. I bought it because I currently live in China and it supports TD-SCDMA and band 38/39/40/41 for China Mobile, but it also supports BC0/1 CDMA and 25/26/41 for Sprint and 2/4/12 for T- Mobile. The only thing it doesn't support is BC10 CDMA. The only issue is it's totally unrecognized by US carriers. I have heard that Sprint will now whitelist IMEIs - I was wondering if there should be any problems with this? How does Sprint activate devices now? In the old days it was NV programming - is it now based on RUIM/SIM and the IMEI whitelist? Do I have to go into a store to get it whitelisted? Thanks all! Thomas
  5. XFinity Mobile

    Can you activate it on any Verizon phone?
  6. [Discontinued] Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    Four seems to be the magic number for competition, France had three carriers and Canada has three carriers, both having awful prices and customer service. When France added Free, a fourth carrier (the French T-Mobile), prices dropped dramatically. Canada of course still has three providers and has the most expensive wireless service in the developed world after the US. If this merger happens, nothing good will come of it. I am crossing my fingers it fails.
  7. Hotspot gives you more versatility, you can usually use it as wired connection via USB, and also via wi-fi when you don't want to do that. It's basically 2-in-1
  8. Calling Plus (VoLTE "Lite")

    /So this is essentially wi-fi calling, but instead of using a wi-fi connection for data it uses LTE for data?

    What is the purpose of the Band 25 MFBI on AT&T
  10. Sprint 3xCA ?

    Hi all, Sorry to semi-resurrect a thread, but I figured it would be better than starting a new one. I'm curious about when we can expect to see higher speeds on band 41 uploads? I read that there was something involving CA or something similar for uploads as well that was in the pipeline, even if it's a long term thing. I'd appreciate any guidance, Thanks! Thomas
  11. Like most of these new technologies, they seem to start off with higher end phones and then will make their way down the line.
  12. I think he means that theoretically Band 25 has approximately 90% of the range of Band 2/4.

    Same, everything I saw says Sprint has been CUTTING capex massively.
