  2. Samsung Galaxy S6 & S6 Edge User Thread

    Bummer... I've been holding off on updating to Nougat hoping there would be a follow-on update to fix it.
  3. Samsung Galaxy S6 & S6 Edge User Thread

    Did this problem ever get resolved?
  4. What's in the Box? Oh, oh, oh, it's Magic.

    Apparently is has become voice already, just not VoLTE... The answer to the first question of the Magic Box FAQ https://www.sprint.com/content/Sprint/sprint_com/us/en/shop/services/magic-box/status.html#faqs refers you to the Sprint Calling PLUS web page https://www.sprint.com/content/Sprint/sprint_com/us/en/shop/services/wi-fi-calling.html#calling-plus which states "Calling PLUS combines Sprint’s Wi-Fi Calling capabilities with the ability to use the LTE data network for calls." Looking at the Calling PLUS FAQ https://www.sprint.com/content/Sprint/sprint_com/us/en/support/solutions/services/faqs-about-calling-plus.html, the fifth question is "Is Calling PLUS the same as VoLTE (Voice over LTE)?", which is answered "No, the current Calling PLUS solution provides VoIP capabilities using the Sprint LTE network."

    For those still using a Galaxy S3 it would be good to know if this particular phone at least has a functional GSM radio that can be use to assist the phone to roam on GSM based network for domestic 911 calls -- if Verizon sunsets CDMA in a couple of years.

    In IE11 go to the Tools menu and choose Compatibility View Settings. Then add s4gru.com to the Compatibility View list. Quotes should then start working.
  7. Sprint Roaming+ - Coverage Map Update

    This is also true in western Nebraska. Some Verizon roaming is 1x and some EVDO. I was able to use 1x data.

    Thanks, I still wonder if PRL 55052 removes EVDO roaming since the current coverage map no longer shows it and it's not listed on the speeds chart.

    I wish I'd saved a screenshot of the previous version of the "3G & More map. I thought it was strange that USCC EVDO showed as Roaming+ (pseudonative) but USCC LTE was roaming -- this would allow people to put their phones in CDMA mode and avoid the roaming data cap, albeit with slower speeds. This page indicates "Off Network Roaming" is all 1x: http://shop2.sprint.com/en/stores/popups/compare_data_speeds_popup.shtml There isn't a category listed for EVDO non-Extended roaming.

    Does PRL 55052 take away EVDO roaming from USCC sites? The "3G & More" coverage map has been updated again and there's no longer 3G extended coverage shown in Nebraska,

    RAvirani, on 04 Apr 2016 - 5:15 PM, said: A PRL update seems to have caused the problem so it is only natural thinking that another PRL update will fix it. I have experienced the same thing ever since I got PRL 55051 and no, it is not that Verizon's CDMA network has become decrepit in my area for my Verizon hotspot works fine on CDMA. I don't really know what the problem is but it sure seems like it was that 55051 PRL update. Whether it was caused by the PRL 55051 update or merely coincidental timing, right after my phone updated to PRL 55051 I lost all roaming (voice/text/data) on I-35 north of Mason City, IA to around the first rest area in MN and in the "I-90 gap" in Sprint service between Austin and the Rochester turnoff. After a call to Sprint customer service eventually voice/text roaming came back, then later on 1x data, so I suspect authentication issues. Also note that according to Sprint's coverage map I-35 north of Mason City is supposed to have native Sprint EVDO all the way to the Minnesota border but my phone has always switched to roaming or no service by time I pass by the Diamond Jo casino (Exit 214).
  12. Sprint Roaming+ - Coverage Map Update

    Time will tell. I wonder how many users you're underestimating -- especially those who are members of S4GRU.
  13. Network Vision/LTE - Minnesota Market

    Apparently this issue isn't completely resolved. When I stopped at the westbound rest area east of Austin a couple of weeks ago I had no service.
  14. Sprint Roaming+ - Coverage Map Update

    That may be one way to look at it. Another way is it adds confusion to managing use of my roaming quota. I wonder how many people will check the coverage map, think they are in a Roaming + area, then burn through regular roaming minutes. Not providing users a clear way to know what type of coverage they're using seems like a way to generate a lot of unhappy calls to customer service when roaming caps are inadvertently reached.
  15. Sprint Roaming+ - Coverage Map Update

    Is there a list of these partners somewhere on S4GRU? If so, where at?
