  1. iPhone 8, 8+, X announced

    I know this is much too late, but this probably happened because your X was on an older version of iOS than your backup. My X came with 11.0.2 installed but my backup was from 11.1. So I setup my X as new and updated it to 11.1 before restoring the backup from iTunes. Apple should have made this issue much clearer and had steps in place to guide the user through it.
  2. WiFi Calling Support For iOS Coming Soon?

    I'm curious about the MMS and group text (non-iMesssage) issue with Wi-Fi calling. Is this just an issue while you're on wifi, or is it an issue even when off wifi as long as Wi-Fi calling is enabled? And I assume iMesssage still completely works since that's over data. Thanks!
  3. iPhone 7/7 Plus User's Thread

    If you haven't tried this already, try tweeting @marceloclaure and @sprintcare. They are usually pretty responsive to customer complaints. Hope you get in contact with someone who can fix your problem and restore your sanity ASAP!

    And if that doesn't fix the issues, take it to a Genius Bar to get them to troubleshoot and, hopefully, replace it.

    Trading it in at a store *should* be the most hassle-free way to go. I know family members that traded in at Verizon and Best Buy had zero issues. If trading in at Sprint is a hassle, it is something that really should be fixed.

    At least we know that regardless of what changes Apple comes up with regarding the home button, us iphools will still be allowed to use our phones on a plane
  7. iPhone 7/7 Plus User's Thread

    Agreed. Over time, the physical home button would stick, become loose, or just not feel as solid when clicked. This haptic home button is much more consistent and will stand the test of time much better. Once you get used to it, it feels as good or better than the physical button, IMO.
  8. iPhone 7/7 Plus User's Thread

    I had the same problem with a replacement phone from AppleCare. You need to plug it into your computer and activate it through iTunes (edit: I just saw your post that you tried that already. Did you restore the phone as new through iTunes first? Now I'm curious what's going on with your iPhone). The second Sprint store I took the phone to did that and had it activated in five minutes. The first store had no clue. Both were corporate stores. Here's a discussion I found on Reddit about the same issue. https://www.reddit.com/r/Sprint/comments/4xmpny/strange_activation_issue_on_applecare_replacement/?st=ITM4SWC3&sh=efb21bb2

    No, I don't think it would apply.
  10. iPhone 7/7 Plus User's Thread

    Sounds like you didn't order before 9/13, is that correct? If so, you'll be in the 2nd wave of shipments for that model. The first wave is shipping out now. I would guess/hope that you'll get your phone next week or the week after that.

    What model/color/size?What does your order status say?
  12. iPhone 7/7 Plus User's Thread

    That's not bad, but it's pretty incredible that other carriers are giving $400 for a 5. And it is a little surprising that Sprint isn't matching that. My parents are on Verizon, and I made them jump on that deal because they'll be hard pressed to get anything close to that elsewhere. But it is what it is. For me at least, Sprint is still the best overall value when looking at total cost over a multi year timeframe.

    According to thishttp://m.imore.com/wireless-iphone-7-everything-you-need-know the iPhone 7 can only do uplink CA on bands 7 and 41.
  14. iPhone 7/7 Plus Rumor Thread

    You could just pretend that the date is later and reassure yourself that you'll be getting the phone on that imaginary release date
  15. iPhone 7/7 Plus Rumor Thread

    I think it depends on when you signed up for iPhone Forever. At release of the 6s, the terms were that you could upgrade whenever the next iPhone was released, regardless of the number of payments you made. I think some time in January they changed the terms to you having to make 12 payments before upgrading.
  16. iPhone 7/7 Plus Rumor Thread

    So was anyone able to get the free upgrade from 128GB to 256GB? I placed my order at around 4:15 and both the iPhone 7 and 7+ were showing a $100 up charge for the 256GB, so I just ordered the 128GB to be safe.
  17. iPhone 7/7 Plus Rumor Thread

    At least last year you could call Telesales to get the iPhone pre-ordered. Looks like they didn't keep Telesales open this year, so we're stuck until the website starts working.
  18. iPhone 7/7 Plus Rumor Thread

    That's pretty interesting. Wish it would have saved me money (I need at least 64GB storage on my phone), but I guess I'll take the extra free storage instead. Maybe it'll boost resale a little when I sell the phone in 2 years. What would've been even better is if they were offering a free upgrade from 32GB to 128GB, but that would have conflicted with the free 32GB iPhone 7 offers. Regardless, any deal on an iPhone is a good deal
  19. iPhone 6S/6S Plus/6C Rumor Thread

    Got a shipping email from Sprint, and my order status has changed to shipped and shows a tracking number. Looks like Sprint is more on top of getting the order status properly updated this year.
  20. iPhone 6S/6S Plus/6C Rumor Thread

    I actually ordered through Telesales bc the website wasn't working when preorders first started. First time I ordered through them instead of online.
  21. iPhone 6S/6S Plus/6C Rumor Thread

    FYI, I got a UPS My Choice notification that a package from Sprint is scheduled to be delivered on Friday. I ordered an iPhone 6S+ 64GB space grey. Reports on Reddit, Macrumors, and Sprint Community forums show many other people are starting to get notifications, as well, even though their order stays on the Sprint site hasn't changed. My order status hasn't changed either.
  22. iPhone 6S/6S Plus/6C Rumor Thread

    I'm hoping those times are for orders placed now and not for those of us that ordered within hours of them going up for preorder. Hating this 2 week wait vs the usual 1 week wait [emoji53]
  23. iPhone upgrade program

    SERO-P 500 doesn't seem to be blocked.
